Seeking FINEBERG, BANK, PRICE #general

Yeruchem & Fraida Cohen
 

I believe we have at long last found the family of the long lost missing
half-sister of my husband's father whom we were told had moved to Chicago!
We had no idea of her married name, but just recently found out that she
had a daughter named Marilyn. In order to complete this branch of the
family tree, I am looking for descendants of Marilyn FINEBERG, formerly
of Buffalo Grove, IL, specifically her daughters, Sheryl BANK and Michele
PRICE.

If you know of these individuals and can let me know how to contact them,
I would appreciate hearing >from you.

When replying, if any numbers appear in my email address, please remove them
before sending or reply to this newsgroup.

Lipkani Cemetery project #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Hi everybody,

In one day we already have 4 people in the Lipkani team: 3 - Hebrew
translators and 1- Russian. That is great, but we would definitely need
more, about 10-15 people. The number of records/photos will be about 2,200.
We do not have any lists, tables - we will do them ourselves.

I would also ask the group if anyone would like to coordinate Lipkani
Cemetery project. I am doing it right now, but very busy with several other
projects and the conference.
If anyone would like do this, please let me know. Here is a set of skills
needed for this project coordination:
- familiar with Excel, combine several tables in one; keep copies;
- familiar with Dropbox to send and receive files;
- keep track of all parts of the project: "first reading", "second
reading"; possible some of the images will be sent to ViewMate...
- advertise the project at Bessarabia SIG Discussion group and
JewishGen Discussion Group.

I will still continue to communicate with our photographer in Moldova to get
some photos retaken if needed, and also to get the last portion of about
400-500 images.

Looking forward to hear >from you!

Eli Brauner
 

The Israel Genealogical Society - Tel-Aviv Dan Branch
The Shaar Zion Municipal Library - Beit Ariela
May Meeting---------Bridge to Galicia

Guest speaker: Mrs. Marla Raucher Osborn - Historical Cadastral
Maps as a Genealogical Source

Dr. Eli Brauner "Milestones in Recognition of Daily Life of
Galician Families - in Lwow Aspect"

About the Lectures:

Marla Raucher Osborn: Although many types of maps can be used by
genealogists, cadastral maps play a particularly important role
since the parcels showed on the maps include numbers. These numbers
can be linked to owner records in archives and to tax records,
which largely contain these numbers. The maps occasionally also
include the names of the property owners. Subsequently, we can
learn what properties belonged to the families being researched.
This data can shed light on the economic circumstances of the
family in the community as well as on the physical changes in
the city. Other important uses include identification of Jewish
buildings for Jewish heritage preservation and an understanding
of the reasons for the historical planning decisions. To demonstrate,
the lecture will focus on a map of Rohatyn, dating back to 1846 but
the information is relevant to all cities in Galicia.

The lecture is in English and will be accompanied by slides
translated into Hebrew.

Dr. Eli Brauner: Research of many years of the Schrenzel Family
from Lwow concluded not only with the creation of a family tree
but with a systematic identification of sources for research and
development of research methods. The research resulted in the
transformation of a standard family tree into a blossoming tree
that reflects the family's daily life, property ownership, and
relationship with authorities, sources of income, military service
and tax payments. Unusually evidence >from the last days of the
ancient family was also found. This information, how to invigorate
the family tree, is made available to the community of Lwow
descendents and the genealogical community as a memory to Lwow
residents who were slaughtered by the Nazis.

The lecture is given in Hebrew and will be accompanied by slides
translated into English.

The meeting, which is open to the general public, will have a
question and answer session.

Everyone is invited.

Industries in Kovno and Vilna around 1900 #lithuania

While there are resources in the Lithuanian Archives for researching the
industrial heritage of Lithuania. one can find quite a number of
references online on this topic. There are also a number of museums which
focus on this aspect of the Lithuanian economy.

One link which may be of interest is:
http://msi.lms.lt/ihp/gateway/lt/lt_index.html
which mentions that in 1900 there were 4,000 works with 24,000 workers
in Lithuania and, in fact, at one time, Lithuania was known to have the
largest shoe factory in Europe. Further, the "Vestfalija" metalworks
in Kaunas had 1,010 workers which was one of the largest industries
in the town.

In addition, the main public libraries in Kaunas and Vilnius have
resources which may prove of interest too. One site for the Kaunas
Pubic Library mentions a number of factories, not all owned or
operated by Jews:
