Re: ships from Danzig #general

A. E. Jordan
 

From: Roberta Sheps rsheps@ntlworld.com
has anyone heard of the "Vedic"?

Yes there was a ship named Vedic owned by White Star Line (think owners of the
Titanic). White Star was one of the largest and leading shipping companies in the
late 1800s and early 1900s. The ship was built in Belfast at the famous Harland &
Wolff shipyard (think Titanic again) but this was a small ship. Her interior
space was under 10,000 tons and she was just 460 feet long. She carried 1,250
passengers all in third class (think steerage) and mostly operated between England
and Canada. She sailed all through the 1920s and was scrapped in 1934.

If you type "ship Vedic" into Google you will get more information including
pictures of the ship.

Re: Union - Blaetter der Emigration #germany

DAVID LEWIN <davidlewin@...>
 

I have now learned some more about the subject and wonder whether this may bring us nearer to my goal - to get
"Union - Blaetter der Emigration" digitized for all researchers to gain access to this important publication.

The publisher H O SIMON was called Hans. He was born in 1887 and died 1961 (presumably in Johannesburg). Does anyone know anything about his family?
Before escaping to South Africa he was a SPORT publisher in Germany. Three of his works are available in the Deutschen Digitalen Bibliothek - the German National Digital Library. He was President and Chairman of the "Independent Cultural Association", insrumental in getting "Our Parents Home" established, Published under the name of Presto Advertising, >from 48 Walter Wise's Building, 50 Joubert Street, Johannesburg.

"Union - Blaetter der Emigration" exists today in paper format at the Deutsche Nationalbibliothek and in Microfilm (until September 1948) at at least 6 locations. After September 1948 the title changed to "Union - Contemporary Cultural Review "

I would like your help to
1. Find the Simon family
2. Get the digitizing to become a reality

Thank you

spelling may be clearer, but it won't come for over a month. Any help would

Alter Bencian Gotlib #general

I am searching informations about Alter Bencian Gotlib (Siedlce 1884 (birth record
in 1888)- Tel Aviv February 26, 1956). He moved with his parents in 1890 to Warsaw,
and there it appear that he first married in Warsaw, 1907, march 19, when he was 23
y o, with Dwojra Gryncejg, 22 y o, wich is the g-g-aunt of mi wife.

He perhaps later married with Ester Mizrahi
( http://www.geni.com/people/Ben-Zion-Yedidia/4373313 ) This must be confimed.

More information about Alter Bencian are available on
http://yleksikon.blogspot.fr/2015/05/alter-ben-tsiyon-gotlib.html

I really dont know how mant time the lifes of Alter Bencian and of Dwojra Gryncejg
was crossed. I would have pictures of him and his first wife, and or contact with
his descendants in Israel.

In addition, I posted a picture on Jewishgen Viewmate nr 6486
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/v_filterarchivelist.asp?x_ID=6486&z_ID=%3D%2C%2C
I dont think that is their picture, but this one of relatives of Dwojra.

Genealogical researcher in Budapest #hungary

hammeroptometrist@...
 

Dear list,

I wish to engage a professional researcher located in Budapest.
I have seen at least two names mentioned.

If anyone has utilized such services, I would be pleased to learn, by
private email, about your satisfaction or otherwise with the services
provided.
Your feedback will assist me in selecting a researcher.

The specific task that I need help with is to find the grave of my
uncle, who I know was buried somewhere in Budapest in 1944, but his
name does not appear on the computerized databases of either of the
Chevrot Kadisha or of any of the Jewish cemeteries in Budapest. I seem
to have exhausted what I can do >from an armchair in Petah Tikva, and
require the assistance of a professional located in Budapest.

Thanks in advance,

Robert Hammer

How best to write your family story #lithuania

RICHARD FRIEDMAN
 

Like many of you, for me, the purpose of doing genealogy is to collect
the facts to write my family story in a compelling, readable and
organized way which will high-lite what my grandparents, parents and
other relatives did and what we can learn >from them.

I plan on using the Creative Nonfiction approach so that hopefully the
story will read like a novel.I would also like to include articles on
various topics such as Jewish history in Europe, The Pale, stories and
facts about their shtetls, my own roots trip to them, the Ellis Island
experience, maps, to name a few. I open with my grandfather sailing
for America, as the first in the family chain, leaving his wife and
children behind in England and then flashback to his and my
grandmother`s family tree.;then possibly to their sibling, their
children grandchildren etc.

I am seeking a good outline for the book and as to how best to proceed.

Where would you put the articles i.e at the end of each chapter ,in a
collection at the end of the book?

Any and all ideas are welcome. Do you have the names of any books,
family histories, articles etc that you are aware of that I can review.

We are taught that when you forget the dead, they die a second time. I
am committed that the good of my family shall live on and shall serve
as a source of inspiration to my children, grandchildren and posterity.

Thanks in advance for your ideas and help.
