Happy Birthday Carol Skydell #yiddish

The following message was prepared by Susan King. Those of us that have
relied on Carol Skydell's guidance and nurturing join Susan in wishing her
the happiest of Birthdays - and many more.

Official Carol W. Skydell Day on JewishGen
in honor of her 75th birthday November 2, 2000
There are special moments and special people that an organization can
recognize, and today is one of those very special occasions. Can you
imagine the world of JewishGen without Carol Skydell?
This feisty red-head first presented herself to JewishGen at the Washington
Summer Seminar in 1995. She had been known to many of us through her
informative posts on JewishGen during the previous six months.
It was here that Carol made her first big mistake in her 5 year "career"
with JewishGen. A mistake that now carries forward to anyone who complains.
<grin>
They say you can't teach an old dog a new trick... well those prophets were
wrong! We have proven over many years that no matter what your age, and no
matter what your disability and no matter how technically challenged you
are... JewishGen can find a way to get you to volunteer... and then some...
Carol is our proof! <grin>
>from the Support Desk to Moderator, >from Moderator to Board Member and
Public Relations, >from Public Relations to VP of Operations... Carol has
surely been on a fast track.. all the while demonstrating to us how fast
she can still type.
Mother of three sons, two daughter-in-laws, one grandson and four or so
grand dogs, Carol continues to monitor all her duties while making cross
country treks between her east and west coast homes twice a year. All of her
files are zipped, her paperwork stuffed in baskets in her car... and her car
put on a transport... it is JewishGen flexibility and mobility at the
utmost.
JewishGen has gained immeasurably >from Carol's exuberance, her willingness
to tackle any job ... no matter what time of the day or night it presents
itself, her undying spirit for what JewishGen stands for, and her
unsurpassing loyalty and dedication to the missions and goals of this
organization.
Please join with us today to honor Carol! There is no better way to say
thank you on this special day than to give back to JewishGen by making a
gift in her honor to JewishGen through our Honors/Thanks JewishGen-erosity
site.
http//www.jewishgen.org/jewishgen-erosity/honors.html
Please join us in celebrating this very special occassion with Carol. This
will be the most special gift of all. What a better way to honor an
individual who has given generously of her time through dedicated, selfless
work for the greater good of Jewish genealogy?
Your contribution to JewishGen will continue to fund our operational budget
which supports all of JewishGen's activities, projects and SIGs, each and
every month.
Happy Birthday, Carol!

Anyskiai & Anykst #general

Mike Ross <nister@...>
 

While research my family trail back to Anyskiai Lithuania I have also come
across the village of Anykst. However I cannot locate Anysk place on a map.
Does anyone know where this village is or if it goes by another name.

This question is best answered by going over to your area Mormon Temple
and asking them to look it up. They have microfiche format everything
overthere and will order just about anything for you for a moderate fee.
This is a group of people who love to do geneology and they are very
helpful. (Moreover, they do not prostheletize Jews!)

First the silly question...does anyone know why within a 200 mile
radius of Minsk there were 39 shtetl's called Ostrov(in Daitch-
Mokotoff)? Mail delivery must have been a nightmare.

Now for the actual question. Does anyone know whether LDS microfilms
exist for birth/marriage/death records in the Minsk Guberniya? Or if
it is not immediately known if these specific records exist, how does
one find out?

For my own information, what country was Minsk considered to part of
during the 1890's?

Thanks for the help(in advance)

MMS <mms@...>
 

Hello All,

Thank you very much to all of you, who visited the site and gave your impression.

The real thanks are due to Ms. Kathlyn T. Winston, Researcher of the David-Horodoker Organization of Michigan, USA, much more than the few words spelled out in the Acknowledgment page of the site. It is she, who is behind the info on this site, which partially reflects her enormous work, originally created in Microsoft Word (TM) format.

The site is a work in progress. It grows almost every day. The latest additions are a "Links" page, which is still in its infancy, and a "What's New?" page. Kathy amd myself are now engaged in digitizing and uploading the pictures of the Yizkor-book, and I started to transliterate to English the Necrology, which is entirely in Hebrew/Yiddish. So come back and visit frequently.

There is now a mirror-site also: <http://mmsh.tripod.com>. Here the host adds a banner-ad on each page, a small price to pay for a free site-hosting. While now this is the mirror and is updated infrequently, in the future, the roles may be reversed, because of thechnical or financial considerations.

You are also invited to visit <http://www.egroups.com/group/DavidHorodok>, the homepage of the discussion-group (or newsletter) about these sites, and to subscribe to it. This is a moderated list, so it is spam free.

Thank you again,

Metrical records? #general

Kirsten Gradel <kmgradel@...>
 

Probably a silly question, but I have now several times seen the
expression "Metrical records" mentioned among types of records available
from a certain place; i.g. >from this and this place the archives have
Vital records, Censuses, Directories and Metrical Records.

What are Metrical Records??

Re: Female name: Gisha #general

Judith27
 

Helene Bergman <HeleneBergman@...> recently asked about the
name "Gisha." Perhaps the name being alluded to is a variant of Gissa
which was my late mother's Hebrew/Jewish name. The name Gisse is listed
on page 65 of Rabbi Gorr's book, _Jewish Personal Names_, with meaning,
and probable etymological origin, along with variations on the theme
such as Gissela and Gizze.
Up, Roots!
Judi Langer-Surnamer Caplan, Long Beach, NY

Just came across the name "Gisha" as a Hebrew name. Although I'm skeptical
about these equivalences, her English name was Hilda. I don't know her
country of origin, but I have the additional clue that her son's middle
name is Gersh rather than Hersh, but I haven't heard of Hisha as a name
either. Anyone out there with a clue?
