To users and 'eager readers' of ViewMate...

We anticipated that JewishGen's 'eager readers' would be quick to provide
feedback to the posted ViewMate requests for assistance. They surely have.
There is a way to thank them, the wonderful 'eager readers' who have
responded with translations and commentary, and have aided fellow
genealogists in their endless search for family ties.

Here is commentary >from one grateful correspondent:

ViewMate is a great asset. I have been impressed with the response of
those who can do translations. They put in the effort to help those of
us who can't read or write in foreign languages. Their effort is greatly
appreciated.

I had an idea this morning!

Whenever I use ViewMate I will make a contribution to JewishGen (size -
my own conscience). I feel this service saves me time and money as well
as opening up new avenues of research. It is certainly worth as much as
requesting a microfilm through an LDS FHC, paying for some interlibrary
loan material, making copies or other expenses I have doing research.
So if any others feel as I do, make a contribution and lets make sure we
keep this great web site growing. [BC]
Those who were helped can name and thank the people who helped them. See:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/Honors.html

1- Scan photos, documents etc. on your home computer system.

Re: Can Yochwit be Esther? #general

Stew:

Yochwit is Yocheved (w is usually pronounced like an English v), also
sometimes known as Yachet or Yettie. Yocheved was Moses' mother. It is
not Esther, which comes >from a Persian name for the goddess Astarte or

Searching SALTZ or SALT or ZALT and KOLINSKY or KOLINSKI or KALIN and TANNENBAUM (Poland --> New York) #general

Laurence Harris <laurence_harris@...>
 

I am searching for part of my family who went >from Poland and
settled in New York City (mainly Brooklyn) around 1900.

Geographical links with this family are Poland (including
Zlochiv) and New York City.

Hershel (Hersch Leib) ZALT/SALTZ/SALT was a cobbler, born c1850,
who lived in Poland. He had six(?) children:

1. Genonezy(Genuncha) ZALT/SALT born 1876. Thought to have
lived in Zlochiv, Poland during period 1913-1918. Married twice.
Second marriage (c.1900) to Kalman Leib KLONOWSKI (my great
grandfather). This part of the family came to England c1918 (Hull
then London).

2. Channah ZALT. Born c1875 in Poland. Died in Poland(?).

3. Nathan SALTZ/ZALT. Born c1875 in Poland. Immigrated to
Brooklyn, New York City, USA. Had a daughter, Leonora SALTZ of
Brooklyn.

4. Shimon ZALT/SALTZ (this was possibly Sam SALTZ - see child 6
below).

5. Fanny ZALT/SALTZ. She immigrated to USA (New York ?). She
married Jacob "Jake" KOLINSKI/KOLINSKY. Jake KOLINSKI ran a
baker's shop in Hendry Street, Brooklyn, New York. Fanny and
Jake KOLINSKI had five KOLINSKI children (all born c.1900). The
KOLINSKI surname may have later changed to KALIN:
a. Minnie (or Minna) - of New York;
b. Goldie. Lived in Forest Hills, Queens, New York.
Had two sons called Bobby and Michael.
c. Molly. Married a man with a surname of TANNENBAUM.
They had one daughter called Gladys TANNENBAUM.
Gladys married and had a daughter called Joanie.
d. Ruby. Married. Adopted two children.
e. Issie.

6. Sam ZALT/SALTZ. A baker in New York. Possibly worked in
Jake's (sister Fanny's Husband) bakery business. Sam married and
had three SALTZ/ZALT children called Issie, Rosie and Lilly.

Postings of these surnames have been made on JewishGen Family
Finder (JGFF). Parts of the family have also been posted on the
Family Tree of the Jewish People (FTJP).

Please contact me if any of these names are familiar to you or
you know anything about the bakery on Hendry Street, Brooklyn.
Thanks.

2001 Conference tube station #general

Miriam Margolyes <75342.3217@...>
 

May not be strictly genealogy, but for those who
keep asking "which is the nearest Underground (tube)
station to the the Inter-Continental Hotel?" it is
Hyde Park Corner on the (blue)Piccadilly Line.

http://www.thetube.com

Is an excellent site for all details including such diverse facts as what
escalators are broken, what underground lines accept bicycles, IE: Circle,
District, East London, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan Lines - Bicycles
permitted on all sections, and best of all is the route planner.
Simply type in where you are leaving >from and
then the destination and it comes up with a list of routes available.

Hope this helps. **Please** don't ask me any more questions about
how to get to the Hotel!

JewishGen has an InfoFile on landsmanschaftn
<http://www.jewishgen.org/infofiles/landshaf.txt > but it is quite
out of date and incomplete. When a chairperson of a group dies,
there is quite frequently no replacement and the group becomes
inactive. It would be difficult trying to keep such a database

Hi everyone. I was wondering if anyone could help me translate the

Any insight would be great.

Tiferes Israel Anshei Zhitomer #ukraine

Barbara <maybug@...>
 

I am posting this thank you to Joan Rosen for her informative note
publicly. As she so rightly indicates, belonging to that congregation may
not indicate that someone came >from that town. Indeed, I have my gf's
naturalization papers indicating he was born in Scalat, Austria, now
Ukraine (which also may only be an approximation of where he was born) and
lived in Terespol long enough to have three children.

My point in making this inquiry is to find out where the ARCHIVES of that
synagogue are located in hopes that it may yield other information. I
would be grateful to anyone else with information about this synagogue.

"In response to Barbara Harris' posting about her relative's burial in the
plot belonging to Tferes Israel Anshei Zhitomer...

Yes, it was a congregation in Phila. at the end of the 19th and at least at
the beginning of the 20th century. My great-grandfather belonged to that
congregation and thus for a while we thought he came >from Zhitomer, but as
it turned out, he emigrated >from Novograd Volinsk, a smaller town not far
from Zhitomer. There apparently was no group >from N.V. large enough to form a congregation here, so he became part of a group >from place geographically close to his home town. This, I believe, was a common practice.

Speakers #general

Arline and Sidney Sachs
 

Sallyann Sack and I do a twice monthly TV show entitled "Tracing Your
Family Roots". The show is sponsored by JGSGW (Jewish Genealogy Society
of Greater Washington).

Our original idea in doing the show was to have tapes available for
societies who could not afford to have speakers come to them, and for
individuals living to far to attend regular JGS meetings.

The shows are shown on the Fairfax County (Virginia) access cable network.
Anyone interested in getting the entire set of shows to use at your cable
station should contact your local station to see how this can be arranged.

JGSGW put together the first 6 shows that we did and offered them for sale.
These included:
1. Why Jewish Genealogy is different
2. Interviewing - a general overview - with oral historian Ellen Epstein
3. Interviewing - continued with a sample interview of Hans Hirsch by Ellen
Epstein
4. Beinners resources - an overview of books, manuals etc.
5. How to save the data you gathered - manual methods
6. How to save your data - a look at various computer programs with Mr.
Nixon of Hearthstone Book Store.

The intent was to package them in groups of 6 (about all that fit
comfortably on a standard video tape). There did not seem to be a great
demand for the tapes and JGSGW did not go ahead and create further
packages. Perhaps there was not enough advertising about them or perhaps
there is a greater need now.

You can see a short description of all of the over 50 shows that we have
done so far at: tracingroots.nova.org
The web site has a link to JGSGW and to the web-sites of many of our
guests, and you can send us a message through the web pages as well.
