Re: Ciechanow web page addition #ciechanow #poland

Harriet Brown <hnbrown@...>
 

Hello Stan and everyone else,

Stan's message has prompted me to go back and look through some items that
I bought >from Tomy Wisniewski a while back. Several of them may be of
interest to us.

One is a print of a photo of the interior of the Nowe Miasto synagogue, on
glossy paper, about 5" by 7". Nowe Miasto was very close to Ciechanow, and
many Ciechanowians (?), including some of my family members, spent part of
the war in the Nowe Miasto ghetto. I also have a line drawing reproduction,
from a book, of the outside of the Nowe Miasto synagogue, which was built I
believe in 1779. It was one of the wooden synagogues in this part of Poland.

I also have two maps. One map is >from 1886, >from the Russian era (so
everything is labeled in Russian), which shows Ciechanow and the
surrounding area. This map shows some of the streets and the Jewish
cemetery, I've been told; I can't read it myself. The second map is German,
from about 1914, and is of Ciechanow and the surroundings.
I would be willing to scan any of these items in so that they could be
formatted for our web site.

Finally, I don't quite understand what needs to be done on the 1923
business directory. I am glad to work on it, but I work on a Mac, and have
had trouble in the past with the special characters.

Re: French Telephone look-ups #general

Rosanne D. Leeson <leeson1@...>
 

In addition to the post of Anne Lifshitz-Krams for rhe French telephone
directory, there is an additional web site for locating people in
France. It is the only one that I have found that permits entry of a
surname, without requiring a place of residence. In this way, if you do
not exactly where a person or family is now living you can simply enter
the surname, and it will search all over France.

It is Infobel.com and the URL is: http://www2.eu-info.com/France

However, as was pointed out, about 10% of French residents prefer to
have unlisted numbers (Liste Rouge), even as here in the U.S.

Evidence of death for SS-5 form #general

jeremy berger <jberger@...>
 

Hi,
When requesting a copy of the SS-5 application, I read that you need to
provide evidence of death.
Can I do this by including a printout of an SSDI index website search
showing a person's name, Social Security number and date of death?
Or do I have to have include a copy of a death certificate?

The family name, MORAY, or any phonetically similar names was
westernized by some immigration official to MURRAY. In Hebrew/Jewish
spelling the name is
mem vov raish yood yood.
Any help will be greatly appreciated as I am stuck at my grandfather's

I believe that in Kentucky there are kin-folk, also named MURRAY, who
are distant cousins.

Video- There Once Was a Town #general

Carol Skydell <cskydell@...>
 

The video so many of you missed when PBS either cancelled or re-scheduled
in your area, can now be yours at a discounted price!

Our very own JewishGenMall has it listed among the 'Specials' in honor of
the Grand Opening.

"There Once Was A Town"

A remarkable journey of hope and survival. In 1941, the German army invaded
the small town of Eishyshok, Poland (now Lithuania) and brutally murdered
nearly all 3,500 Jewish residents. Fifty-six years after the massacre,
"There Once Was A Town" chronicles the remarkable journey of four of the
town's survivors and their families as they return home. Actor,
Edward Asner, a descendant of an Eishyshok family, narrates the film.

Re: Kultusbeamter #general

In a message dated 12/4/00 11:31:34 AM Eastern Standard Time, jrw@Brown.edu
writes:

<< In Vienna it was (and is) called the Israelitische (not juedische)
Kultusgemeinde. >>

==Yes, that's the correct term. "juedische" is the popular term.

The Kultusgemeinde was (is) financed by government taxes. Everyone had to
belong to one religion or another--("Gaubenlos = without Beliefs was
one." And the tax they were assessed went to the respective Kultus.
There was one Kultusgemeinde per city or district that took care of
religious and lay needs affecting the community. It helped finance
synagogues but had no religious authority itself. In the 19th century,
and perhaps later, the state determined the minimum qualifications for
rabbi (incl fluency in German, a PhD in a subject other than Judaism) and
the village teacher who was usually also cantor, shochet and mohel.

The Isr. Kultusgemeinde was essentially a lay and administrative body. I
believe it had some jurisdiction also over local Jewish schools,
hospitals, and of course welfare funds. It also had some arbitrational
power affecting the Jewish community.

My parents used to refer to our synagogue community as "die Gemeinde."
Don't make the mistake I've frequently done. When you say Gemeinde in
Germany, people will assume you're referring to the local municipal
authority.

I dout that a shammash would be considered a Kultusbeamter. He would be
someone hired independently by the synagogue and not an official appointee
nor a member of the Isr. KG.
