My 3x-great-grandfather Michael MILLET (born c.1800 in or near Dabrowa
Tarnowska) had either a brother or first cousin Yaacov Meir MILLET. Yaacov
had at least 5 children, the oldest of whom was Moshe (d. 24 Oct 1907)
whose mazzevah still miraculously survives in Dabrowa Tarnowska Jewish
cemetery. Among the children of Moshe & his wife Wita was Cyla (born
1860, aka Tzila or Curtel) who married Wolf BARBASZ (d.1919 aged 58).
Their children were: Lon Dawid (1887), Wita (1889), Sara (1891), Hirsz
(1895). Cyla BARBASZ nee MILLET was sadly murdered in the Shoah, in
the Tarnow region. Her Page of Testimony was submitted by her daughter
Sara LANDAU in 1956.

I got all this information >from JRI-PL and Yad Vashem, so anyone can do
likewise. As they are so distantly related, I do not have any personal
information relating to this branch of my family,

Belchatow Kehillahlink, Roni Seibel Liebowitz #poland

btkerman@...
 

Hi everyone, 
I have been unsuccessfully trying to make contact with Roni Seibel Liebowitz who is listed as the manager of the Kehillahlink page for Belchatow Poland. The webpage doesn't look like it has been updated since 2016/17, but I would like to speak with Roni or anyone who has knowledge of the records that exist for Belchatow.
Thanks in advance for any assistance!

Re: Deportations from France #france #holocaust

Dominique Anderson
 

Thank you for your comments. I totally agree with you that too few people realize what is available and are very quick to jump to conclusions.
And yes, le Mémorial de la Shoah is impressive and... chilling!
May I add that the Journal Officiel published the list of the people who were deported from France. It is available online.

In Israel you don't write to a cemetery. You write to the Hevra Kadisha.

Re: Name change and naturalization in the US

Here are two articles from Prologue Magazine on the U.S.  National Archives website that may be of interest regarding naturalization status of family members when the head of household is formally naturalized. It has a long and complicated history.

Danzigers at IAJGS Conference in San Diego #danzig #gdansk #germany #poland

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

Danzig researchers, if you might attend the IAJGS Conference in San
Diego (https://iajgs2020.org), please fill out the following form so I
can get an idea of how many Danzigers might be in attendance and their
interests:

https://forms.gle/JDMWvCxpQad51bgM7

In other news, proofreading is nearly complete for the 1939
census/Jewish community membership list (CAHJP file Da/1645a). There
will be announcements when it has been sent to JewishGen for inclusion
in the online searchable database and when it goes live. Volunteers
are needed to help with other data sets. If you would like to learn
more about volunteer opportunities and we have not already been in
contact regarding volunteering, please email me directly.

Thanks very much.

Re: Help Stop USCIS Genealogy Program Fee Hikes

Renée K. Carl
 

Hi Mark
I'm part of the non-partisan ad hoc group raising awareness to the proposed fee hikes. Our focus is the egregious hikes, which will take the USCIS Genealogy Program out of the reach of most researchers. Many of these documents should already have been transferred to the National Archives and available for free. Others are subject to FOIA, and should not be behind a $240 paywall. You can read more about our platform at RecordsNotRevenue.com
This is not considered lobbying, this is providing comments on proposed rule changes. 
Thanks
Renée

Is this forum allowing politics now? Because I don't have an interest in debating or discussing ICE or any other non-genealogy topic. I don't care where fee the money goes, my problem is the fees, not where the money from the fees go. If this is really about ICE, and not about fees that will hurt genealogists and restrict access to public records, I don't support stopping the fee increase.

I did comment on this proposal and sent copies to my two senators and representative.  I got a call back from Senator Baldwin's office and was told that she has not made a comment during this comment period; I suspect she and most senators are not very aware of this issue.  So it's time to flood their offices!

Please note that the proposal includes permission to transfer funds from these USCIS fees to ICE, which is an enforcement agency, as we all know only too well.  My senator has gone on record opposing this kind of funds transfer and that may be the hook that gets the attention of congresspeople; it certainly should get OUR attention.

Randy Schoenberg's Prague Visit #austria-czech

Paul King
 

Randy Schoenberg's ancestral search in Prague October past has
revealed largely untouched sources which may facilitate overcoming
critical chronological gaps for SIG researchers. It has generally been
held that except for rabbinical and banker lineages, the Thirty Years
War (1618-1648) establishes a date before which data is unattainable.
The 1618 date which was notoriously used by Habsburg enumeration
authorities for determining Jewish residential legitimacy until the
1725 Familianten decree fixed the Jewish population by awarding
numbers, was sporadic and did not list family names. Thus, knowledge
that the Prague Municipal Archive houses 300 boxes of Jewish community
records >from the early 1700s is encouraging, although frustrating,
since they are uncatalogued and apparently closed to the public.
Marriage records >from the 1730s were also not known to us until now.

Unmentioned is the general Terezian Cadaster (c. 1714 - c 1748) in
which one would have to seek out Jewish names in the numerous
localities, perhaps with the assistance of the name list in the 1724
Jewish census.

Clearly, almost all of us require hired personnel help in locating and
reading the old script, but now our source options are much wider
thanks to Randy.

Additional Zentralfriedhof grave photo request #austria-czech

I see that Tom Heinersdorff just posted a photo request.

If someone is kind enough to consider that one, perhaps I could ask the
kind photographer to consider a second high quality photo in the same
area.

I am searching for a photo of the tombstone of Isaak ETTINGER,

Does anyone know where I might find a photograph or photographs of the
building in which the Pinsk Judenrat had its office? I am interested
specifically in the Judenrat building and not the Judenrat's members
or activities. I'd like to know the street location as well.
