Re: Amazon Donations for JewishGen

Madeleine Sann
 

I am ashamed to say how much we spend on Amazon purchases a month. The charity I designated has, over perhaps 3 years of our spending thousands upon thousands of dollars (442 orders), reaped a little over $100. It’s a good idea to designate a charity but the actual money generated is discouraging. If you use the mobile app, it will not generate anything. You have to go through the smile.amazon.com site - which we do.

Dear Linda,
Thank you very much for your continued support. 
I apologize for any confusion this may have caused. You do not need to register for PayPal to make the donation (unless you would like to sign up for recurring gifts). We analyzing using PayPal to process our donations since they offer a more secure, robust and cheaper platform than what we were using in the past. 
Thank you in advance for your support.

Well Avrami you sure make it hard to do things.  I tried to make a donation using a credit card but your form tried to force me to sign up for PayPal.  Sorry but I don’t like that.  Why ‘make’ donors do things that they object to.  It’s a real turn-off.

Dear Avraham,
I tried to use the donate link using my credit card, and after I fill in the whole thing, it won't work unless I sign in to or create a PayPal account.
I am not interested in doing this.  I used to be able to just use my credit card to donate to Jewish Gen.  Can you help me with this?

Thank you.

Formation of email group about Isle of Man Internment #unitedkingdom

Tony Hausner
 

Several of us have recently activated an email group about Internment on the
Isle of Man. This is primarily during World War II but also applies to World
War I since internment by the British occurred then as well.
In my case, my parents and other family members, all of whom were Jewish,
escaped >from Vienna shortly after the Anschluss, when the Germans took over
Austria in 1938. Most of my Viennese family members escaped to England.
However, a year later most of them were labeled by their local boards as
"enemy aliens' and spent as much as a year in separate camps on the Isle of
Man.

To join our group, please send an email to me at thausner@...

Re: Amazon Donations for JewishGen

Carol
 

Hi Nancy,
I think this is a great idea!  Lord knows, I spend enough on Amazon.  When I went to the link, I got my account, but putting in JewishGen yielded a couple of state societies but not JewishGen itself.  Perhaps others will have this problem and may also benefit from more direction!

Dear df,

Have you contacted Jewish History Association of South Wales, https://jhasw2018.wixsite.com/news?  Even if they do not have the materials you need they can probably point you in the right direction.

Stolperstein #poland

Gerald and Margaret
 

Has anyone had experience of installing Stolpersteine in Poland?

My paternal grandparents, Adolf and Frieda (nee Masur) STEIN
lived in a small town, Kanth, now Katy Wroclawski, along the
railway line , 12 miles SW of Breslau, now called Wroclaw.
They were murdered in April 1942.

I would like to hear >from anyone who has applied in Poland
for permission to instal a Stolperstein - which level of
local council one should approach.

There were 4 Jewish families in this small town. I was
in contact with the daughter of Dr And Mrs Heidenfeld.
There were two others, the Jungmanns and a family who owned
a shoe shop. I would like to ask if any relatives would like
to commemorate their families.

Could it possibly be the Spanish “ferrocarril”? That means railway. Altho why they would use a Spanish word, I don’t know.

Index of Jewish Surnames in Cairo in the 20th Century #sephardic

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

I just published on Avotaynuonline.com an index of 1,689 surnames
of Jewish families which lived in Cairo during the 20th century with a
short introduction about the methodology and the sources I used. It is
certainly *not* a complete list and if I missed a surname you know
please please let me know. We can improve it only with your help. Here
is the link:
