JewishGenners say Buy! Buy! to AuctionHouse! #general

Clankarol@...
 

A little bit of gentle persuasion has paid off. Since I sent out a
reminder about the Auction House a number of you have made some very
generous donations.

So, what are some of the great offers this week?

Two years worth of Avotaynu magazines- a must for any family historian.
Research at Yad Vashem- Hall of Names.
Russian-English translation, Italian Family Document translation, Books,
scarves and plenty more...

But you'll have to see for yourself by clicking on:
http://www.jewishgen.org/auction/ to see what's on offer.

Remember, all proceeds go to help the Operations Budget. This is your
chance to help us help you.

Cheers,

Alien Registration Cards #general

Foodphile@...
 

I'm very confused about Alien Rgeistration Cards. I was under the
impression that they were separate and apart >from the Naturalization
Process (Dec. of Intent, Pet. for Nat., and Nat.). I sent to the Dept. of
Justice for them using thier form and have received a copy of the actual
Naturalization Certificate and Petition for Naturalization.
Can someone enlighten me about this? Incidentally, the information I
received was for Phillip GREENBERG and for Harry HIRSCH, neither of whom
are mine. If anyone out there is interested in these names, please
contact me privately and I will be happy to send these on to you. Thanks

HIRSCH or FRANK of Chicago via Hammond, Ind.? #general

Nina Fantl <fantl@...>
 

In 1860, my ancestor Wolf LEVY (who arrived in Chicago in 1844) of
Bavaria married Harriet (Yetta) HIRSCH (or FRANK) allegedly of Hammond,
Ind.(born in Germany). Her family may have been in paper business.
Wolf Levy's granddaughter was Helen REGENSTEIN of Chicago.
Am searching the LEVY line and HIRSCH (or FRANK) line.
Wolf Levy died in 1901. Offspring were Louise, Bella, Morris, Jennie,
Bertha, Becky.

The Hebrew calendar has only 12 months. In order to keep it accurately it
adds a 13 month 4 times every 19 years. In principle the difference in a
particular age is not more than a few weeks and it's automatically amended
every 19 years, when the Gregorian and Jewish Calendars meet.

Re: Zhmud, an area of Lithuania? Where? #general

Zmudz (Zemajtija) is a historical province of the western Lithuania located
between the rivers Niemen, Niewiaz and Windawa. This is one of the main
Lithuanian provinces as oppose to the Lithuania proper (Aukshtota).

Lithuania...
I would like to investigate any resources in that area, to see if my

Salo is usually a diminutive for Salomon although I have seen it also as
a diminutive to Shalom. Anyway, both are male names.

My sister married last year a Barco, a member of the jewish elite in Colombia.
He himself is not sure if his name comes >from Bar-cosh or >from Bar-Cohen.
Some of his relatives spell their name Barcos, and some spell their name
Barcon. If the line comes >from Bar-Cohen, it relates to the priestly line.
Is there any one who could give us some information about this name and
its ramifications???? We will appreciate it. Thank you in advance. Shalom.
