Who Sailed On Titanic? Debbie Beavis
Published by Ian Allan Publishing, 2002.

ISBN: 0-7110-2880-X

No one knows as much as Debbie-and although the
ref. to Jewish travellers is small, she gives
exactly the info we need. I have no benefit
from recommending this as a one-time
suggestion.

Re: Organization of genealogical materials #general

Diane Jacobs <kingart@...>
 

Hi,
I have organized my date this way.
I keep all documents relating to one family line in a looseleaf folder
in archival sleeves and I mark that doucment with a color dot where
the individual (s) are listed on the page to see it quickly.

I keep ALL the information >from documents for each person under
their name and data in MS Word and separate sheets by individuals
so when new information comes forth, I can just put it in Word and
then print out a new sheet for each person. So by glancing on a
person listed on my tree, I can scan down and see every address,
every years, every relationship on records that I ahve for that person.

Hope this helps.

I would very much appreciate hearing people's suggestions as to how to
physically organize genealogical information and documents. I would like
them organized in such a way that, when visiting a family member, I could
take a folder or more with me - with material that is relevant to that
person. Therefore, I do not want to organize the paperwork by keeping,
e.g., all census records on everyone in the same folder, even though I
have a computer program that suggests organizing papers in that way.

I am sure that no one meant to insult the person who made the
inquiry. Often letters on gravestones are eroded or otherwise
distorted and the person involved doesn't always consider all the
possibilities.

I have certainly fallen into that trap myself and have been grateful
for those who pointed out what was only obvious afterwards.

University, will discuss genes and genealogy at this meeting. He will
discuss two aspects of genetics and how they can affect you and your search
for your roots.

Join us on May 29th for an enlightening session about genes and how they
affect your everyday life. Discover what DNA testing can and cannot do to
help track your ancestors and confirm relationships

LEVITUS, Seattle--1920s #general

m leonards <m_leonards@...>
 

Does anyone know what happened to Josephine Caroline LEVITUS or her sister,
Martha Ruth LEVITUS, both born in the 1920s in Seattle, Washington? They
were the daughters of Ernest and Caroline LEVITUS.

The family does not appear in the 1930 Seattle City Directory. By the
mid-1930s, I think they were somewhere in New York State, but not the City.

Thanks for your help.

Meorei Galicia (Galician Rabbis) indexes now online #general

Seflaum@...
 

Dear Fellow JewishGenners,

I am pleased to announce a new addition to the Rabbinic Genealogy SIG
(Rav-SIG) web site: Indexes to Meorei Galicia (Encyclopedia of Galician
Sages). The two indexes now online include 1,362 surnames and 324 cities,
towns, and shtetls found in Indexes to Meorei Galicia.

Meorei Galicia: Encyclopedia Lekhakhmei Galicia (Encyclopedia of Galician
Sages) is a five-volume bio-bibliographical work containing extensively
detailed genealogies of Galician rabbinical families. This impressive and
scholarly work is one of the most extensive and reliable sources of
rabbinical genealogy written in the twentieth century.

The author, Rabbi Meir Wunder, is chairman of the Institute for the
Commemoration of Galician Jewry. The Institute's main achievement is the
published five-volume Meorei Galicia. Galicia formed part of the former
Austro-Hungarian Empire. Today, Galicia is divided between southern Poland
and western Ukraine. Some of the larger cities and towns in this region
include:

Krakow (Cracow), Poland
Przemysl (Pshemishl), Poland
Tarnow, Poland
Brody (Brod, Prode), Ukraine
Drogobych (Drohobicz), Ukraine
Kolomyya (Kolomea), Ukraine
Ivano-Frankivsk (Stanislawow), Ukraine
Lviv (Lwow, Lemberg, Leopol), Ukraine
Ternipol (Tarnopol), Ukraine

The contributions of the following individuals are very gratefully
acknowledged:

- Rabbi Meir Wunder, for permission to reprint material >from Meorei Galicia.
- Chaim Freedman, for the description of Meorei Galicia.
- Judy Wolkovitch, for proofreading the list of surnames.
- Dr. Neil Rosenstein, Ilan Ganot, and Edward Goldstein (of Gesher Galicia)

We are indebted to them for their invaluable assistance.

The indexes may accessed >from the Rav-SIG home page, in the What's New
section: http://www.jewishgen.org/Rabbinic
or directly at:

Jews' Free School of London #general

michelinegutmann <michelinegutmann@...>
 

May I add something to Rosemary Wenzerul's message
about the Jews' Free School of London ?

A book has been written about it by Dr Gerry Black
Printed by Redwood Books, Trowbridge, ISBN 0 95311104 00
I was happy to hear if it at London 's conference last July.

My interest is because the first stone of the new building of 1821
was laid by Samuel JOSEPH, who was the President,
the brother of my husband's ancestor Aron JOSEPH,
Vice-President who later became the President,
(both guardians of the Great Synagogue),
who accompagned him as well as their relatives, Joshua van OVEN
and the Chief Rabbi J.H. MYERS, and also the Reverend Salomon HERSHELL.
The book is very interesting and an Index is added.
