Nickname Clara #general

ctf-vif@...
 

My grandmother, Miriam Evelyn DUBIN (CHORNEY), was called "Clara" by the
family. My mother thought that it was her middle name, but it was not.

Does anyone have a clue as to why a woman named Miriam Evelyn would be
called Clara? Does anyone know anything about my grandmother? She spent her
entire life in Philadelphia, PA, USA.

ViewMate/Thank You/Tzedakah #general

Larry Freund and Gloria Berkenstat Freund <glory1@...>
 

I have been thinking of the following proposal for a few months and my
success in using ViewMate has led me finally to submit it.

Last week I posted a paragraph >from the Radomsko Yizkor Book, which I have
been translating. I had been having difficulty with this paragraph for
months and after it was posted, David Goldman and Bill Leibner graciously
assisted me with the translation of the paragraph. I am happy to publicly
thank them for their generous help.

But a public thank you doesn't seem enough. I have started keeping a jar
near my computer (my JewishGen pushke) into which I put an amount of money
each time I find something on JewishGen that leads me to a new discovery in
my family research. I intend to take the proceeds every month or so and
write a check for the amount as a contribution to JewishGen. We have a
tradition of Tzedakah. I think we should remember that tradition every time
someone answers one of our queries on JewishGen or we find something useful
while reading the Digest or individual messages. (It would also be a good
idea to hit the reply button when someone sends us an individual response
to our queries and simply type the words Thank You.)

I am adding Tzedakah money to my JewishGen pushke in honor of David and
Bill.

My proposal is that each of us keep a JewishGen pushke in which to toss a
few coins or a piece of paper on which to indicate a monetary amount and to
do so each time we get help >from JewishGen. We can each do so according to
our financial situations and according to the value we place on what we
have received. Once a month or so, we can send this Tzedakah money to
JewishGen as a way of saying thank you and, more important, as a way of
making sure JewishGen will be there when we have our next query.

Jewish Cemetery in Praga #warsaw #poland

Hadassah Lipsius <kesher@...>
 

Mike asks about the Jewish Cemetery in Praga....

I'm wondering if we have any connections at the cemetery in Praga. My
mother
told me that her family lived in Praga.

In May, I visited the Cemetery in Praga. The Cemetery has a gate with a
memorial for Shmuel Zbitkower, a well known and influential Jew >from the
18th Century who lived in Praga. However, most of the cemetery was
destroyed by the Nazis and the stones were used for building roads. There
is one large area of the cemetery were the Nazis accumulated thousands of
stones and stacked them. It is really quite heartbreaking. If anyone is
interested in setting up some type of website for it, I will donate my
photographs.

I have a very good Polish young friend who helped me transcribing
matzevot in Poland (see details of those projects at:
http://www.geocities.com/Paris/Rue/4017/zadik/zadik.htm

My friend knows Hebrew and English very well.
He is a volunteer in Yad Vashem for one year. He could translate for you
any documents
from Polish into Hebrew or English for a very reasonable sum, as well as
coordinating with his student
friends in Poland conducting a Genealogical research for you.
Please contact me for his email/telephone/address.
