New book on Lodz synagogues and prayer houses #lodz #poland

Seflaum@...
 

Dear Fellow Researchers,

An important new book on Jewish Lodz was published this year: "Synagogues and
Prayer Houses of Lodz (to 1939)," by noted Lodz historian Jacek Walicki, in
both Polish and English. It is a fascinating look at why and how all the
major synagogues and many prayer houses were founded in Lodz, and by whom. It
includes photos (before and after the Nazi destruction), drawings and plans
of the synagogues.

Appendix I includes a never before published chart of all the prayer houses
in Lodz -- I counted about 300 prayer houses! The chart includes the prayer
house's "police address", the property's real estate registration/mortgage
number, date (ranges >from 1873-1937), names of the elders (gaboim), number of
people registered in the prayer house, and source of information.

For those of you interested in this book, here is the specific information:

Marriages #lithuania

maninthemoon2k <maninthemoon2k@...>
 

I have the Social Security application of one of my grandfather's
relatives. He bore the surname of his mother.

I was told that up until the early 1900's, a couple could not be married
in a civil ceremony if they could not afford the fee for a civil marriage. However, they could be married in a religious ceremony. If there was no civil ceremony, any children born of that marriage had to take the surname of the mother.

Has anyone else heard this? Does anyone have documentation?

What's new on the SRRG site #general

Neiel and Joan Baronberg <njbaron@...>
 

Dear JG friends,
The Suchostav Region Research Group is pleased to let you know about
some special additions and changes on the SRRG site.
The SRRG home page,
http://www.jewishgen.org/shtetlinks/Suchostav/SuchostavRegion/SRRGhome.html

has been redesigned, providing easier access to our many departments
and the 45 shtetlach included in our research group.
As a result of his JG trip to Ukraine, our webmaster Tom Weiss has
greatly expanded the Buchach page. Here he has added a full trip report
which will be of interest to anyone researching in the Lviv area. He has
also added fabulous photographs and is in the process of a full report
on his high-tech recording of the Buchach cemetery. His work can surely
serve as a model to others.
Our new membership lists include a database searchable by family name
being researched. This may be of use to other JGenners not registered
with SRRG. We have also expanded our "Famous Sons and Daughters" section
and added to many of the shtetl home pages.
Please come have a look and also know that anyone with research
interests in our area will be warmly welcomed to SRRG.
Joan Baronberg, SRRG Membership Coordinator

ViewMate: Photographer's ID stamp #general

Roy Smith <roysmith@...>
 

I have an old photograph of a young man. On the back is a very faint
impression of the photographer's stamp in Cyrillic script. It is too faint
to scan. A friend has attempted to read the words and do a translation of
them.

The first line translates as "Photographer"

The second line is the photographer's name "Boris Krias?avsk" (one letter
is unreadable).

The third and last line comprises two words which is most likely the
photographer's address. I would very much appreciate any help in
identifying where it is.

I have posted my friend's attempt at reading the stamp and I have posted a
shot of it at ViewMate No: VM137 at
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/toview50.html#vm137
and would appreciate any help.

Many thanks,

Chesterfield couch manufacturers #general

zerakodesh@...
 

Hello
Does any one know anything about a couch known as a Chesterfield? My
friend said her family manufactured such an item. This was in Toronto or
Montreal.
She was related to a family possibly the GELFONDs or FELDMANs.
It would be nice if someone could help her find her family.

I want to thank Rob Kuijsten for informing us about hid usenet search
site. I just tried it, and found a posting to JewishGen in answer to a
question I had asked a couple of years ago - and apparently I had missed
the posted answer (computer glitch or something!). Also found loads of
other messages on one name I was searching. Thanks, Rob.
