URGENT SEARCH, NEED HELP

Journal by Isabella

PLEASE HELP US, THERE'S GOT TO BE SOMETHING THAT CAN BE DONE ABOUT THIS. WE ARE LOOKING FOR INFO ABOUT ONE OF OUR RELATIVES WHO WAS KILLED BY THE NAZIS DURING THE WAR IN BELARUSSIA-GNELYA SAVELIEVNA SLAVINA. WE HAVE GONE THROUGH COUNTLESS GENEAOLOGICAL WEBSITES AND ORGANIZATIONS, AND NONE OF THEM HELPED US INCLUDING THE ARCHIVES IN MINSK, CAPITAL OF BELARUS. THIS IS NOT FAIR, EVERYONE ELSE IS CLAIMING ON THE INTERNET THAT THEY FOUND A WEALTH OF INFORMATION ABOUT THEIR RELATIVES AND ANCESTORS, THERE IS A LONG LINE OF PEOPLE STANDING IN YAD VASHEM, TRYING TO SUBMIT A PAGE OF TESTIMONY ABOUT THEIR RELATIVES KILLED BY THE GERMANS, GNELYA WAS SUPPOSED TO BE THERE A LONG TIME AGO BUT SHE IS NOT. ALL JEWISH VICTIMS OF FASCHISM EQUALLY DESERVE TO BE POSTED THERE, THESE PEOPLE ARE DEAD, DO YOU UNDERSTAND IT OR NOT, AN UNIMAGINABLE TRAGEDY ESPECIALLY THE ONES WHO LEFT THIS EARTH EARLIER THAN THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO LIKE GNELYA AND POSSIBLY HER OWN FAMILY. IT IS OUR MORAL DEBT AND OBLIGATION TO HONOR THOSE PEOPLE IN EVERY WAY WE CAN, AND WE HAVE BEEN GOING THROUGH HELL BEING TURNED DOWN FOR HELP IN THIS ISSUE IN EVERY C0RNER. THIS IS NOT OUR FAULT THAT WE KNOW SO LITTLE ABOUT THAT WOMAN, THIS IS HER MAIDEN LAST NAME, SHE HAD THREE SURVIVING SISTERS-DORA, VERA, AND SONIA (MY GREAT-GRANDMOTHER). GNELYA WAS BORN IN BELARUSSIA, PROBABLY IN RECHYTSA BECAUSE THAT'S WHERE SONIA WAS BORN IN 1890S. MAYBE GNELYA, LIKE SONIA, WENT TO A RUSSIAN GYMNASIUM IN RECHYTSA, I DON'T KNOW, SHE MIGHT HAVE BEEN KILLED IN RECHYTSA OR SOMEWHERE ELSE IN BELARUSSIA, I DON'T KNOW BUT WE KNOW 100% THAT SHE WAS MURDERED DURING THAT ERA IN BELARUSSIA, AND A JUSTICE SHOULD BE RESTORED TO HER NAME. SOME PEOPLE SHOULD NOT HAVE AN UNFAIR ADVANTAGE IN THEIR RELATIVES' SEARCHES OVER OTHERS. PLEASE HELP US, YOU CAN ALSO WRITE TO MY FATHER:

GELENA BRONSHTEYN,
313 DULAINE COVE,
BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA 35210
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

AS FOR ME, I AM STAYING AT A TEL-AVIV HOTEL IMPERIAL, ROOM 206, AT LEAST TILL THIS MONDAY. THANK YOU.

Dear Isabella, Hi there. I have helped you as far as I am able. Click on BRONSHTEYN at the bottom of your other journal as I have created a surname wiki page for everything that I could find on the net devoted to that surname. I have seen several posted messages written by your father Gelena. No doubt you are bound to obtain some information in return.

Wishing you well in your search. Also I think I created a page for SLAVIN/S.

Kind regards,
Alison

Some more tips ... It would be better to have your ancestor's name GNELYA SAVELIEVNA SLAVINA in the subject heading of this journal. That way if anyone is searching for this name, they can find it via their search engines on the internet. Just edit your journal to change the subject heading URGENT SEARCH, NEED HELP as it is too vague. And the only people that will see it are users that frequent familytreecircles.

Also, have you thought about entering your family tree on the internet at say perhaps Tribal Pages - Your Family Tree Website? It is free and easy to use. It can't hurt as sometimes all you need is just one person to contact you. It is amazing what other people know sometimes.

Good luck.
