Re: Diamond family of Styrj #galicia

Leslie Gyi <leslie.gyi@...>
 

The Hungarian Jewish name for Diamond is Gyemant. Most people in the US
using the name Diamond, change to this upon immigration. You may need to
look under other names, depending on the country, government at the time,
and language spoken.

Subject: [galicia] Diamond family of Styrj


I am looking for information about the Diamond family of Styrj in Galicia.
My grandfather left his parents and two sisters there when he came to the
U.S. in 1902. His father was Morris Diamond, and his mother was ?Tobe
Reider. Any information or suggestions about how to research this further
would be greatly appreciated.

Old genealogists never die; they just lose their census.

Re: Where is "Kazan" ? #general

Beba Marantz <beba.marantz@...>
 

Kazan is in the now Republic of Tatarstan (since 1990) and has been since
the distant past a cultural centre with numerous theatres, a University and
an ancient famous cathedral.

I have just found a "business card" for one of my grandfather's older
brothers who never immigrated to the US. The family lived in Plock,
Poland. Time frame would probably be the 1890's.

The card reads "Jozef SZCZYPCZYK -- Student Medycyny". On the back
of the card is handwritten "a student at Kazan". I entered "Kazan"
into the Shtetlfinder but was presented with too many choices to know
which is the correct locale. Any suggestions as to what the locality
is known as today?
Thanks for any help!

Re: No Fancy Fonts Please #ukraine

haflo <haflo@...>
 

Dear U SIG Members,
With regards to my letter requesting that *nothing* be posted to this forum
in Mime, it was pointed out to me that by specifying a font, I had confused
the issue of "Plain Text".

Apparently, "... this is *not* the same thing as plain text.... I'm
certain that some readers of Ukraine SIG will be confused by the conflict
between specifying a font for a particular e-mail and sending the e-mail as
plain text."

As long as you ensure that your email program is set to "Plain Text", you
are on safe ground.

Please accept my humble apology for any further confusion, [but do make
sure that your postings are in "Plain Text"!]

I was also advised that "As for AOL 6.0, it is not necessary to
maintain an earlier version on your computer to preserve the ability to
write plain text messages (although there may be many other reasons to
avoid 6.0).
AOL Anywhere, the Web-based version of AOL mail found at <www.aol.com>,
sends messages in plain text, so AOL 6.0 users can write messages to
JewishGen lists by using AOL Anywhere on the Web with no problem."

I hope this helps.

Another reminder to please send your messages to
<ukraine@lyris.jewishgen.com>.
I am still receiving email intended for the Ukraine SIG mailing list.

Thanks for your indulgence,
