Moscow physicians #general

IsraelP <zach4v6@...>
 

My grandmother had a sister, Mary ROSENBLOOM, born about
1902 in Borisov - married name GOLDIN, we think, who was a
physician in Moscow. We don't know where she studied. Our last
contact was in 1929 when she asked if someone could get her
the modern invention she had heard about where you can listen to
a person's breating through tubes put in the ears. We have an
Moscow address for her then.

Is there any kind of medical association who might have some
info on her? We know nothing more than I have said here. No
husband's name, children etc.

Toronto Death Certificate #general

Arem2@...
 

How do you go about obtaining a Death Certificate for someone who died in
Toronto in 1950? He is a gg-uncle of mine. And restrictions or requirements
for a non-Canadian making the request?

The Importance of the JewishGen Family Finder #galicia

Debbie Raff <seraff@...>
 

Yesterday, I found myself checking entries for the JewishGen Family Finder
for the town of Sanok. Although not a plan, I began emailing people, who
had a surname listed in the index of the Polish book I have on the history
of Sanok. (This is not the Yizkor book) In fact, had this actually have
been well thought-out, I would have sat in a more comfortable chair. (grin)

Anyway, I woke up this morning to 2 requests to search this book for
surnames. Not a problem, but since both of these people had surnames in the
book, theoretically, I should have emailed them with the information,
yesterday. In fact, if everyone has listed and updated their information, I
should be getting no more requests. Either, these people are listed on the
JGFF without an email address or they have not listed these surnames with
JGFF. In a sense, they have become the missing link!

So, if you have 'inherited' some new surnames, recently, and haven't gotten
around to updating the info., or are new to genealogy ~~please take the time
to input your information into the "Family Finder" at
<http://www.jewishgen.org>

After all, there may be another researcher out there, who is a glutton for
punishment (vbg) like me, who would have contacted you, but your bit of
information did not exist and you may never connect.

I recently posted a message that some records >from Kowalewo were found on a
Sierpc, Poland microfilm.

Having reviewed some of the indexes, the names appear to be those of
gentiles and not relevant to us.

Re: Hints for taking photos #general

Bob Myles <nonono@...>
 

Color film/photos fades over time. Use Black and White instead.
Your color film can be developed as black and white photos.
You can also use a digital camera for B & W pictures.
B&W prints will also fade over time if they're not archivally processed.
In fact, they can fade rather quickly if not processed properly and stored
with care. The deterioration is more obvious with color film because color
changes are easier to detect than tonal changes in the greys of a B&W
photograph.

Storage boxes can be made of aluminum, stainless steel, polyethylene, hard
rubber, glass, porcelain, or metal coated with baked enamel.

Negatives should be stored in polyethylene or acid-free envelopes, prints
in acid-free paper and boxes. Anyone interested can e-mail me privately
for sources.

In a perfect world, negatives and prints would be stored in an environment
of moderate temperature and low humidity.

reported plans for Prague Jewish Cemetery possible hoax #general

skydell@...
 

To the many concerned genners who are sending us the messages regarding
the possible destruction of the 800 year old Prague Jewish Cemetery, we
have been alerted that this is a possible hoax, or at the very least
misinformation.

All the messages coming in refer to an article that has supposedly
appeared in a newspaper called the Jewish Tribune, and to a purported
letter written by Rabbi Sidon to the London Committee for the Preservation
of Jewish Cemeteries in Europe...yet none who write to us have actually
seen the newspaper article, or a citation of the date of publication,
nor has anyone who is writing seen the references in any other newspaper.

It is all hearsay, and suspiciously "hoaxlike" since most messages being
reported and quoted to us contain the advice "please forward this to as
many of your friends as possible", the refrain one finds in hoaxes 99.9%
of the time!

So, until any of our UK JewishGen family actually *sees* this article
in the Jewish Tribune, or is willing to contact the London Committee
for the Preservation of Jewish Cemeteries in Europe to clarify the
situation, we will continue to maintain a skeptical stance.

Re: posting names & JGFF & FTJP #general

LiniDi@...
 

I agree with Linda Rakoff - I find my information >from all different sources:
FTJP, JGFF and the messages with their lists of names. If I submitted all
the names I am researching (which in my case includes relatives of spouses) I
would be entering information for hours. There are about 6-10 names that I
concentrate on, and those are in JGFF; my tree is in FTJP. But many times I
go to the message archives as well - especially when some new infromation
pops up and I want to see who else is researching that information or those
names.

Comments about JGFF and FTJP:
In JGFF the emails are not updated all the time (responsibility of the
researcher, I know) which can be very frustrating.
In FTJP, as Linda said, you don't know who you are contacting and it can
sometimes lead to duplicate contacts.

All of these resources are excellent - but need to be used in tandem. Please
don't stop people >from posting their surname lists.

Re: Tandeciarz #general

armata@...
 

Just to round out the discussion of the meaning of tandeciarz, I did some
checking in 8-volume and 11-volume Polish dictionaries in our local
university library. A tandeciarz was a dealer who sold goods that were
cheap, either because they were secondhand and often worn out, or because
they were poorly made and of low quality. Karlowicz's 8-vol dictionary
from 1953 defines it as "someone who deals in cheap goods, buying up old
discards, buying and selling used items." It could also mean the store
where that business was conducted.

Some quotes >from Karlowicz:
"These weren't weapons bought >from some tandeciarz, but were clearly
inherited, passed >from father to son, family heirlooms."

"On both sides of Dluga Street there are fruit vendors, and tandeciarze
(plural), who here also sell old books and engravings."

On the other hand, three Polish-English dictionaries I checked did give
the definition of "dealer in used clothing" that others had mentioned, but
which doesn't really give the right idea - the tandeciarz sold more than
clothes, and cheap new things (junk) as well as used things. Iit may just
be that one Polish-English dictionary came up with that definition and
subsequent others just kept reprinting it.

Searching NEUFELD, STERN, SCHILLINGER, GLUSTEIN #hungary

Ruffin Cooper <rrcooper@...>
 

Well, here I go again with more information. My grandfather, (Vilmos)
NEUFELD was Neolog.

Primarily I am searching for the NEUFELD, GLUSTEIN, STERN and SCHILLINGER
families in Hungary in the 1800's, although I would love to find any other
relatives in the USA.

Sigmund NEUFELD married Turka GLUSTEIN sometime in the early 1800's
somewhere in Hungary. They had a son:

Max (Mark) NEUFELD was born in Budapest Hungary in April 1844 and died in
Manhattan, New York City on
July 15, 1907. His wife was:

Bertha SCHILLINGER born in May 1848 in Budapest Hungary. She died August 13,
1921 in Manhattan, New York City.

Her parents were Wolf (Farkas) SCHILLINGER and Anna (last name unknown).

Max and Bertha had 8 children, they are:

William (Vilmos) NEUFELD (my grandfather), was born August 18, 1869 in
Budapest Hungary and died November 25, 1913 in Brooklyn New York. He married
Fannie STERN in Budapest on July 5, 1891.

Fannie STERN, possibly born in Tiszaluc, Hungary. The town was written by
the clerk at Ellis Island phonetically and my best guess is that it was a
town on the river Tiza in Hungary, possibly Tiszaluc.

Vilmos and Fannie had 5 or 5 children, all were born in the United States,
in Brooklyn New York. There given names were Leah, Harry, Anna, Sidney (or
Sydney), Golde (maybe), and Regina (Ruth), (my mother)

The most important document I have is his birth record in Budapest. I also
have ships manifests, Naturalization records, etc for the NEUFELD's. Here
is an extract of the birth record of Vilmos NEUFELD that I have in my
possession.

***Birth Registration for Vilmos Neufeld, August 18,1869 in Budapest,
Austro-Hungarian Empire, (Israelitische Kirche Budapest, Kirchengemeinde,
Budapest - Neolog 1868-1871).***

I have a lot of other information, but this is the primary data of my
family.

Anyone having any information about my family should feel free to contact
me, to say the least.

Regards

Ruffin Cooper
(so figure how a grandson of Vilmos NEUFELD is named Ruffin Cooper!)
