What Draft Ward for Brighton St, Boston 1917 #general

Carol Edan <caroled@...>
 

Shalom,

According to the Declaration of Intent for my gr-uncle Joseph POLEY he was
residing at 98 Brighton St. Boston Mass on Feb,1917. He was inducted for
service for WWI on April 29th 1917. Are there any maps on-line showing the
districts at this time?


What ward/neighborhood would that refer to in order to get to the correct
film in search for his registration card? On the infofiles there is a long
list of neighborhoods with the corresponding film #.

What further information would I get with the full military records. Does
anyone know what special bonus's or pensions were given to veterans of
WWI???

There is some conflict of story about his service >from family members and
what was recorded on his Naturalization forms, I am hoping the records will
clear matters up.

Would appreciate any help or pointers.

Kremenets Yizkor Book, First Installment is on-line #general

Ronald D. Doctor <rondoctor@...>
 

I am pleased to announce that our first translation of the Kremenets Yizkor
Book, Pinkas Kremenets edited by Abraham Samuel Stein now is publicly
available on the Yizkor Book website

http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/kremenets/kremenets.html

The book originally was published in Tel Aviv in 1954 by former residents
of Kremenets in Israel. It contains an extensive Hebrew section followed by
a Yiddish section, and is 453 pages long. This is the first installment of
our English translation. More is coming soon.

Our volunteer translators have done a remarkable job in translating the
first set of chapters. I particularly want to thank David Dubin, Rob
Goldstein and Steve Wien for all the effort they have put into this work.

The on-line book includes a detailed Table of Contents that is hyperlinked
to the text sections that have been translated. It also includes photos
(mostly of people) scanned >from the text. A Table of Figures has links to
each of the 20 photos currently in the translated text. In addition, to
help you find names of the people listed, we have added a Name Index at the
end of the book. It has about 300 names, and the pages on which the names
appear. The Name Index will grow as we translate additional sections.

Be sure to read the Translation Project Editor's Note, which explains how
we transliterated names. This will help you in locating particular names in
the book. If you have reason to believe that a transliterated name should
be spelled differently, please let me know. And, If you locate ancestors on
the list, please let me know about that too. I'm keeping a log of
"successes", which eventually we'll post on our website. As usual, if you
have any questions, be sure to contact me. I'm looking forward to hearing
from you.
Our volunteer translators are dedicated to our task, and have done
remarkably good work ... and, they are continuing to work. However, it is
clear that we will have to hire professional translators if we are to
complete this and the other Kremenets Yizkor Books (totalling about 1,000
pages in all) within a reasonable time. That means we must raise enough
money to pay the considerable expense for professional translators.
Consequently, I urge you to make a cash contribution to the Kremenets
Yizkor Book Translation Project.

To make a donation, point your browser to:

http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/YizkorTrans.html.

To be sure your donation goes to our Kremenets project, scroll down the
list and check the box next to Kremenets, Ukraine. You can make your
donation electronically (and safely) with a credit card, or you can
download a printable form for making your payment by mail. Donations are
tax-deductible.

Those who donate time and/or money to the project receive pre-release
copies of all translations and lists that we produce. This is one of the
ways we can reward those who help the project move forward. So, please make
your donation now ... and let me know about it. I will then add you to our
e-mail list of contributors so that you can receive pre-release copies of
the next Yizkor Book and Vital Records translations.

One last thing. If you haven't visited the Kremenets ShtetLinks website
recently, do visit now:

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Kremenets/

Sheree Roth and her son Max have done (and are doing) a wonderful job of
building this site as a home for all things Kremenets. You'll find
historical information about Kremenets, analysis of the vital records, and
photos of Kremenets and Kremenetsers. If you have material to contribute to
the website, please contact either Sheree (sroth@pacbell.net) or me
(rondoctor@qwest.net).

I hope you get as much personal satisfaction >from this English translation
and our other Kremenets work as I do. For me, this effort has been one of
the most personally satisfying things I have ever done ... and there is
more to come as our translators continue their work.

MADOW's Jewelry Store, Bronx, NY #general

JUDYJ4060@...
 

Hello,

I am looking for any information/history about MADOW's Jewelry Store,
Bronx, NY. The MADOW family that owned this store are my cousins on my
paternal grandfather's branch of my Family Tree. His name was Isidor
TARAIL and he would take me to the store when I was a child, but contact
with them was not maintained. My grandfather was quite secretive about his
family, especially the part he left behind and would only mention MADOW
and the Jewelry Store.
I would like to connect with any members of this family in the hopes of
finding out more information about my grandfather's family.

Please respond privately.

Thank You.

A floorwalker is a sort of supervisor in a department store--he/she
walks around assisting customers, making sure the salesclerks are doing
their jobs, and, perhaps, approving special charges or deliveries.

The Emporium was a large, beautiful department store in downtown San
Francisco, on Market Street, just about opposite the cable-car
turn-around.
It closed sometime in the last decade.

Abba Bina Abramowitch/Ossip and

Also their ancestor, Rabbi Zalel or maybe Bezalel Katz. These people lived
in Lithuania in or near Rakiskis or possibly Vilna.

Any names of reference books would also be appreciated.

Where in Toronto can I find books on Jewish geneology?
Could someone >from the local JG Society tell me about monthly meetings.

No, they won't be translating the world's records into English-what would a

That is what ViewMate is for. Post a copy of the record on ViewMate and get

Re: Town of "Sakot" #general

There is a town in Romania called Sighet, where many Jews lived including
Elie Wiesel. It was occupied by the Hungarians during the war and
eventually the Nazis transported the Jews to camps, mostly Auswich. You may
want to search that community. Good luck.

Subject: [lodz] Town of "Sakot"

Dear Jewish Genners,

I am posting this message for a friend in Melboure, Australia. Her father
(surname Meyerovitz) told her that his parents were born in the town of
"Sakot". He doesn't know how it was spelt, and in fact doesn't know if it
was in Poland or Lithuania (or elsewhere?). He just knows his parents
verbally said they came >from Sakot (literally spoken "Sukot", with the "u"
pronounced as in the "u" of "umbrella".

My friend thinks Lithuania, as her grandparents travelled and settled in
South Africa, and then her father eventually came to Australia.

Has anyone any clues regarding the town and where it may be? I have
searched the ShtetlSeeker, and the closest I get is Saukoto in Lithuania.

Thanks,
