Asking for advice for research in France - peintre Albert Varadi #france

Susanna Vendel
 

Dear Geners,

Thank you for all the answers I received! I will make an abstract of
them, bellow.
Questions 1-2-4: Avenue de la R=E9publique no 8 in Epinay-sur-Seine
seems to be hosting today doctors and nurses.There is also a
possibility that the building is a "Maison de Sante, an hospital" but
with the main entrance >from an other street.

Somebody mentioned that there is a psychiatric clinic near the Avenue
de la Republique but she couldn't tell what number that would be or
when it was opened. There was no listing for no. 8 in the 1927 phone
book.

I have now written to the Archives of Epinay-sur-Seine to find out if
in 1925 the building was an Hospital or a private residence.

Rue Jacob no 15 in Paris, in the Latin Quarter is today l'Hotel
Millesime, which opened for the first time in 1997. It is not sure
what it was in 1925. But "a writer lived there in 1925, his name was
Benjamin Fondane and he published a small journal. Other artists had
lived there before. Zelda Fitzgerald wrote that the writer John Dos
Passos lived there. So it was definitely a place for creative
individuals". I am not sure if in this case "Journal" =3D newspaper or "
Memory notebook"

3. It seems to be difficult to access medical records in France. I
have now written to the Archives in Epinay-sur-Seine to find out if it
is possible or where I can access his medical records/cause of death.

Thank you all for answering to my questions and helping me in my
research. I hope to be able to do the same for any of you, here in
Stockholm.
Best regards,
Susanna Vendel, Stockholm

List of People killed in Pogrebishche 1918-1921 Pogroms #ukraine

jskarf@...
 

I recently contacted the US Holocaust Museum regarding a file in their
archive, which contains a list of 192 people killed in the Pogrebishche
uzeid during the pogroms >from 1918-1921. They were kind enough to send
me copies of the list, a total of 13 pages with 192 names in Cyrillic.

This clearly contains some useful information for people researching
this area. I was wondering if anyone would be willing to transliterate
this list so that we could prepare a new dataset with this information.

In the same file there was a second list of names which I didn't request,
for Radomyshl. I imagine that it has a similar list of names. There may
also be other lists for different cities; if anyone wants to check the
list of the whole set of files available I will include the link below.

Please be in touch if you can be of help. I can send you the 13 images.

Sincerely,

branches at the turn of the last century: THE FAMILY is one family's story,
but it is also a universally appealing account of the enduring love between
parents and children, of faith and wartime, of innovation and astounding
resilience. At the book's heart is the story of three extraordinary
archetypal women: Sonia, the Pioneer in the Promised Land; Ida, the Tycoon
in New York; and Doba, the Mother who remained in Lithuania and endured the
onslaught of the Holocaust. Laskin will address particular genealogical
issues that he encountered in the course of research and writing, including
archival research in the US, Israel and Eastern Europe. Book signing and
purchase event following the program. Books are $17.00.

Speaker: DAVID LASKIN is an award-winning bestselling author for nonfiction,
including the 2014 Spertus Institute Jewish Institute for Learning and

New York Times and The Washington Post. THE FAMILY was chosen as Amazon Best
Book of the Month and shortlisted for the William Saroyan International
Prize for Writing.
