I come from...came from...a large family...well of course I still come from it, but the family is not so big - 10 kids, 2 survived the holocaust - one being my grandfather - now that's a freaky story in itself...
The Yad Vashem website lists not only names but any info put up by family members.
I found, with mum and dads input, several family members who perished. I need some input from relatives in Israel - I'm in Australia - but I will wait til they aren't working or sleeping or whatever they're normally doing when it's daytime here. Once I get some more names i will be able to research further.
Lots of merchants in our family and a weaver - and I know there were shopkeepers etc all over shop - so to speak. It's the first step for - something I have been meaning to do for a while but have lacked the impetus to get of my inordinately large backside and actually do. I want to base my PhD - which i will do one day, on my family history somehow - if possible - otherwise it will be some boring drivel about Educational standards in History.
I'm new here so no one knows anything about me and I'm being somewhat personal, but meh - share and care. Anyway - hi
All I can do is thank Mr Fry for sparking the flame - what a better way to end my first post than by kissing some butt??
No - that is a sincere thank you, from the bottom of my cold cold heart...
I just can't do it properly, can I? X-D
