KING Romania? #romania

 

First, may I extend my thanks once again for the assistance in tracing my Jewish
familes through their travels >from Romania, to New York (1903), and finally to
Canada (1918). I have several new leads, and some things are beginning to fall
into place.

As my search for the Jurist and Greenberg families of Romania progresses, I have
noticed that these folks always refer to their homeland as "KING Romania" or
sometimes "KING Roumania".

Is there some significance to the upper case "KING" that I am unaware of? Would
this perhaps help me locate a town or area of origin?

Spiwak passport for trip to Romania

Dear Patricia,
Another kind person >from the Rom-Sig (Stefan Mireuta) helped with the
name of the crossing into Romania mentioned in your passport.
The historical name of the entrance point was called Grigore Ghica
Voda and the current name in Ukraine is Nepolokivtsi and in Romanian
was Nepolocăuţi. At the time of travel Bukovina, the part of Ukraine
where the cross point is, was part of Romania.
Best,

List of Borisov Jewish victims of Stalinist purges 1937-8 #belarus

Anne Bobroff-Hajal
 

To clarify: I should have said that Barysaw (not Borisov)is the name
used for the JewishGen SIG. Borisov is the same city as Barysaw, and
is the name used in the website I provided the link to,
http://rpp.nm.ru/gulag/gulag.html.

I've since realized this website, http://rpp.nm.ru, has a number of
other lists as well, of Borisov/Barysaw Jewish cemetery names,
Borisov/Barysaw Holocaust victims, and others.

At least some of these lists were also published in a book by the
indefatigable website owner, Aleksandr Rosenblyum, Pamiat' na krovi:
Evrei v istorii Borisova (Memory in Blood: Jews in the History of
Borisov), Petakh Tykva, Israel, 1998. A scholarly review of the book
was reprinted on JewishGen
http://www.jewishgen.org/Belarus/newsletter/BorisovReview.htm. As
noted by the reviewer, "Since it lacks an academic apparatus, the work
can not be considered scientific."

The website, though, draws on many sources, and contains a massive
amount of information that, together with other sources is, I feel,
invaluable (I am a PhD. in Russian history as well as an artist).

If members of the Borisov SIG are not already aware of it, I'd like to
alert them to an online list I just found of Borisov Jewish victims of
Stalin's purges in 1937-8. Many of the entries include photos of the
victim, along with some information about them, the (of course false)
charges against them, and their fate (e. g. sentenced for so many
years, shot, etc). This is the website:
http://rpp.nm.ru/gulag/gulag.html

This is a Russian language website.If you can transliterate the name
of your family member into Cyrillic, you can use your browser "Find"
to check whether they are listed on this page. If
non-Russian-speaking SIG-ers contact me with the names they are
searching, I will do my best to help as many people as I can.

Re: Polish Archive Question #poland #lodz

jeffwexler@...
 

I've been using Xoom, which, for a $5 charge, allows you to make
payments (of a $25 minimum) >from your checking account to recipients
in Poland.

That costs a lot less than a wire transfer. Because each record
typically costs less than a dollar (if you've identified it by archive,
year, and akt number), the $25 minimum gives you an incentive to order
other records >from the archive that might be of interest.

I am getting ready to submit requests to several archives - does anyone know
if the archives will accept payment in any other form other than a wire
transfer? (such as paypal for example) In this day and age of electronic
banking it seems so silly that there would be no other way to pay for the
services. Has anyone ever tried contacting the archives to ask? (I don't

Paying for vital records in Poland #lodz #poland

Naidia Woolf <rnwoolf@...>
 

Alise Kermisch asked if the Polish archives accept payment in any form
other than a wire transfer?

I live in the United States and always use Western Union, which is less
expensive than a wire transfer (or international money order, for that
matter) but just as efficient and acceptable - by the Polish authorities.
The only possible drawback is that Western Union won't handle the money
transfer unless you provide the name as well as the address of the archive
director (or person requesting payment) at the archive - so be prepared!

Dear Alise,

They are unwilling to be flexible. But, some archive's banks are near
Western Unions. Western Union will deposit the funds for you at the =
bank in that case.

I tried last year - both directly (>from me in English) and also via a person
in Poland to request an alternative method of payment to the Lodz archive
(AGAD) for a series of papers related to my grandparents. The AGAD advised
then that they had only one method of payment acceptable to them and that
was by wire transfer. The cost of the copied papers and postage was 9 Euros
but the wire transfer fee was 20 Euros; plus the inevitable quite long delay
for payment verification etc. So unless they have changed their policy in
the last year 'wire transfer it must be'.
