Re: where is my sister? #general

Efrat -

In course of my Mengele-twins research and the search for Jolli A-7734, I
come across a lot of information about lost children. Much of it is
irrelevant for you, but here is an idea:
In 1942, this sister was 5 years old - old enough to say her name.
So, if she was saved by local people, she may appear in a list of
children who survived in hiding in Krakow area. The list starts on
page 112 of a Polish book: "Survivors of the Holocaust in Poland" by
Lucjan Dobroszycki.
[Thanks to Feiga Weiss, Head librarian in the Holocaust
Memorial-Center/Zekelman Family Campus, MI/USA for this information.]

Copies of the book are in Yad Vashem, our National Library, and YIVO.

Unfortunately, you do need to check ITS archive (via Yad Vashem) for a
worst case scenario. If you go to Yad Vashem, their volunteers will
help you.

Also, submit a query to the Red Cross via Magen David - they will help
you in more directions.

I hope it helps.

Re: Danish or German obit 1970s - 1980s ? #general

André Günther
 

Hi Allen,

At last he was to find 1974/1975 as a merchant in Hamburg. But he died
in 1990 - if in Germany or in Denmark isn't clear...

From: Aejordan@aol.com

...There was a Danish born businessman named Axel Bitsch-Christensen who
was in the shipping industry after World War II in Germany.  He lost his
company in 1973 and after that he seems to fade away.  I don't know if
he stayed in Germany or went back to Denmark at the  end of his life.  He died
somewhere in the past 35 years.

I would like to figure out when and where he died and possibly find an
obit on him. Any ideas?

On Sunday, May 12 another blog will be available, "Sevastopol/Pozharova: Jewish Cemetery". Both posts contain names related to Sevastopol and links to the associated Russian language articles.

Ken Rothstein's request: "does anyone know if there is a list of people buried in the Jewish Cemetery.
I have not been able to locate any business directories either. I am looking
for members of my family who lived in Sevastopol >from the l870's through at

GASSNER family from Krakow #general

Ted Kotzin <tkotzin4713@...>
 

I am looking for details about my father-in-law's grandfather, Josef GASSNER.
He appears to have been born in Debnike, a suburb of Krakow, in 1839. He
went to Antwerp around 1888 where he was a diamond merchant. He was
apparently there as late as 1915. He had 4 children, Leopold (my wife's
grandfather), Ernestina, Helena, and Adolph, all of whom were born in Krakow
and came to America between 1886 and 1902; I have plenty of information about
them.

There is a family story that Josef and his children insisted they were
Austrian, not Polish, with the possibility that the family was >from Vienna. I
would like to know if anyone has further information about Josef in Europe.

Note that there was another Joseph Gassner >from Krakow, born 1870, who went
to London and had 7 children; I have not yet determined the exact
relationship, but would guess his grandfather and Josef's father were brothers.

[Canada] New Version Canada 1871 Census #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Library and Archives Canada (LAC) released a new version of the 1871
Canadian census. The 1871 Census marked the second regularly scheduled
collection of national statistics. It officially began April 2, 1871. It
covered the four provinces that were then part of Confederation: Ontario,
Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.

The census included information on 3,485,761 individuals. Access to the
census is free. There were nine schedules that comprised the census. Most
of all 9 schedules have been preserved. However, only Schedule 1, Nominal
Return of the Living, is searchable in the database.

The collection can be searched by name, age, province and keyword. I put
in the search field the names Goldberg and Cohen for Ontario and each query
had results returned.

The other schedules can be viewed through LAC's Microform Digitization
tool http://tinyurl.com/d8s6jj2

This requires the reader to scroll through the microfilms which are

In answering Beth's email, the moderator was right in there is no listing
for a JGS of SLC, per se, but, however, there is an IAJGS listing for a
Jewish society. They are listed in IAJGS as: Utah Jewish Genealogical
Society. (Utah JGS). Meetings are the third Tuesday of the month at 7:00pm
at the Family History Library. In fact, they are going to co-sponsor the
2014 IAJGS conference in SLC.

Re: Where does the surname BEHAR originate from? #general

Sue Clamp <clamp@...>
 

The town near Salamanca is called Bejar, which would fit very well with
the origins of this name.

from Wikipedia: The name Bejar is of pre-Roman origin. The original
form was Bigerra and is said to mean "place of the beehives." "Bejar"
could be an adaption >from the Spanish word abeja, which means "bee." An
older spelling of the city's name is Bexar.

Here is a link to the web site of Mario Behar, who documents a "world
summit" of people with the Behar name in the town of Bejar in 2004. It
might be of interest:

I'm currently researching the family history of a family by the name of
BEHAR and was wondering where this name originates from? I found Leah
BEHAR, Samuel BEHAR and Eugenie BEHAR in the 1911 UK census but would be
interested to know where they were born and when they emigrated to the
UK. I searched the Ancestry index and found a number of BEHAR families
