Re: New Orleans, 1933-1937(?) #general

SiCanto@...
 

An uncle just told me that his mother had
a relative who was an executive in a fruit
transport shipping line in New Orleans. This
was in the 1930s. Her maiden name was DIAGOT.
I don't know her relative's name. Any ideas how
I can pursue this line of research?

This message is a resend. I had to find a way
to send it in plain text. . .

Thanks.

Can anyone tell me if the names MORDECHAI and MORTCHEL are the same name
but in different form. The area and time in question are Eastern Europe
[Russia, Poland and Lithuania] and mid to latter 19th century.

Re: Looking up something in the census #general

Steve Gabai <sgabai@...>
 

From: "Rick Spears" <rspears@gate.net>
Marie, You may be able to go to your main library in your town and look it
up. Start with the 1920 Census. Have the librarian help you find the
soundex
spelling of the name which will look something like: K-122 etc. Then look
in
the census book for the correct microfilm for that particular soundex. The
microfilm will be an alphabetical index of each soundex name. Find the
correct soundex on the film, there may be many on one film and search for
the last name you are looking for and then the first name. If you are lucky
to find the correct name, THEN you can go seach the actual census using the
information on the index to find the exact microfilm that has his census.

Rick Spears

No, the soundex is not in alphabetical order. Once you find the microfilm
that has your soundex code, you have to scroll to the code - and then it
goes in alphabetical order by first name, not last.

But I'm not sure what Marie means about looking up an address in the census.
If you just want an address, you can find directory's >from whatever year
you want - on microfilm.

The 1920 census is indexed by soundex code, so you can find anyone's census
- for that year, and 1900 which is fully indexed as well - quite easily.

For most of the States, 1910 is not indexed and you'll have to know the
persons address to find the census. So you'll have to find a directory and
"look up" the person you're looking for.


But then you'll needed to find out what E.D that address is located in. For
Brooklyn, I would guess the NY public library would have those ED's and
maybe the the Fed. Archives on Varick St.

Yiddish Culture in the US #general

Martin Kronman <mkronman@...>
 

I know that this only distantly related to genealogy, but I hope you will
nonetheless publish this message. National Public Radio is currently running
a series about Jewish Radio in the period in the 1920's and 1930's. These
are based on acual recordings of the programs on radio stations, probably
mostly in New York. These contain Yiddish music of this time, ads for
products that immigrant Jews would have been interested in, Jewish soap
operas and more. I heard the first program today, Tuesday, the 19th of March
and I was very moved by this glimpse into another lost world, the world of
Jewish immigrants. This series will last for 9 weeks on each Tuesday. There
is also an announcment of this on NPR.org.

New Book from YIVO/Yale #general

Sandra and Donald Hirschhorn <donsandyh@...>
 

"The Last Days of Jerusalem of Lithuania: Chronicles >from the Vilna Ghetto
and the Camps, 1939-1944" is now listed on The JewishGen Mall for
pre-publication sale. This is the long-awaited English translation of the
Yiddish diaries of Herman Kruk, a Bundist activist >from Warsaw, who fled to
Vilna at the beginning of World War II.

Kruk, who organized and oversaw the library of the Vilna Ghetto, also played
an active role in several of the ghetto's social welfare and cultural
organizations. Kruk, along with poet Abraham Sutzkever and others, secretly
worked to rescue and hide many rare books and artifacts >from the Nazis.
Like Emanuel Ringelblum in the Warsaw Ghetto, Kruk was a resolute chronicler
of day-to-day life under the Nazis with full awareness that he might not
live until the war's end. Thankfully, his diary has survived to reveal the
horrors of that time to future generations.

This new English-language edition, published jointly by YIVO and Yale
University Press with assistance >from the Nusach Vilne Society, has been
edited by Professor Benjamin Harshav, Blaustein Professor of Hebrew and
Comparative Literature at Yale, and translated by Barbara Harshav.

According to the publisher, the book will become available next month.
However, you can place your order now at the very special pre-publication
price of $32.95 by visiting the JewishGen Mall at
http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgenmall, clicking on 'Browse Mall Now,' then
on 'Books' and 'Holocaust and Resistance.'
