Viewmate 1620:Please help reading location #general

Suzanne <gypsysm@...>
 

The image on Viewmate 1620 was on the 1930 Census given by my grandfathers
sister. It may be a clue where the family was >from in Latvia or Lithuania.
The same location was written above the word Russia in all three places.

Can anyone possibly make out what place is on this image?
Thank you everyone for your help. It can be seen at
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/source/vm1620.html
Please respond directly to me, not the group.

Dear genners,
I have posted a photograph of my great uncle Leon Bassein, also known as Leon
Elbe. He is shown with his nephews or cousins, in the Crimea. There is a
caption below the photograph written in Yiddish. I would be very appreciative
if someone could help by translating the Yiddish. The file is VM1624.

Carbondale, PA Jewish Cemetery #general

Ada Greenblatt <ada.Greenblatt@...>
 

I am considering cataloging the burials in the Jewish Cemetery in
Carbondale, PA because it contains a number of people >from or with roots in
my ancestral shtetl of Shatt (Seta), Lithuania.

I live in New York City and have no prior familiarity with this cemetery.
I also don't drive and would need to get there by public transportation
(Trailways bus >from NY to Scranton and then local bus >from Scranton to
Carbondale).

Can someone who has first hand knowledge of the Carbondale, PA Jewish
Cemetery please answer the following questions:

1. What is its street location? According to
<http://www.jewishgen.org/cemetery/northamerica/penn.html> it is located on
Route 6 in Childs. Is this correct, and if so is it directly on Route 6 or
is it slightly off of it?

2. How far away is the cemetery in miles >from Carbondale? Is it
accessible by the public bus that goes between Scranton and Carbondale or
do I need to take a taxi >from Carbondale?

3. Who and where is the contact person that I need to get the key from?
Do you have a phone number for him/her so that I can call in advance? The
aforementioned website lists a Mrs. Temmie Cohen, but this info may be out
of date. [To protect the contact person's privacy, please do not post the
phone number in this forum.]

4. Is the cemetery safe or is it off the beaten path? Is it isolated in
the woods someplace? In other words, is it safe for a female to be alone
there? Is it within walking distance of a restroom, a convenience store,
and a public telephone?

5. Approximately how many tombstones are in the cemetery? Is the Hebrew
inscription on one side of the tombstone and the English on the other or
are both the Hebrew and English on the same side? I need to know this
because it will determine how much time it will take me to catalog the
cemetery and whether or not I will need to stay overnight in Carbondale.
500 tombstones with Hebrew on one side and English on the other is the
equivalent of cataloging 1000 stones, as I just found out in Bradford, PA
last week.

Since this information is not of interest to the group as a whole, please
respond privately.

Dear Genners,
I have received half a dozen responses >from Genners, which is great.
However all of them give me PARTIAL ADDRESSES.
I know this may sound rude, but I am looking for a complete address.
Please only email me if you can help with a street name and house number.
Many Thanks,

Dear Genners,
If you are in New Mexico state and have access to a local directory,
please can you help with a look-up for me.
I have already tried five Internet search engines, but none give the
full postal address that I am after.
The person's name is: Norman HARRIS and I believe he may be
living in Albuquerqe or Placitas (both in New Mexico).
I am after a full postal address so I can write to him.
Thnak you, in advance,

Genealogy Project at 22nd IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy #general

JGS of Canada (Toronto) <info@...>
 

Announcements:

Genealogy is about context, as well as facts. The 22nd IAJGS International
Conference is pleased to present a range of artistic displays, entertainment
and films to delight the soul, as well as your mind. Full details of these
Programmes can be found on the Conference Programme web page at
http://www.jgstoronto2002.ca/Programme.html.

1. During the Conference you will find a range of galleries with arts and
exhibits. In one gallery you will find a limited selection >from the
original major photographic exhibition “And I Still See Their Faces: Images
of Polish Jews”. - an absorbing look at the vibrant Jewish family and
community life and diverse culture that existed in Poland in the years
before 1939. The accompanying volume will be on sale.

2. “Jewish Heritage in Poland” is selection of sixteen photographs, in
colour and black and white, of Jewish heritage sites in Poland taken by Alex
Oldfield while on a two-week Elderhostel tour in August 2001. The focus is
on Judaica in Warsaw, Tykocin, Bialystok, Lodz, and Kazimierz (Cracow), as
well as Treblinka, Majdanek and Auschwitz. Most of these photographs will be
featured in the slide show presentation: Jewish Heritage in Poland (see
Monday’s schedule).

3. “Tracing the Jewish Past Through Postal History” is a photographic
exhibition that contains samples >from the collection of Nigel Grizzard and
travels through places as diverse as Kirgistan, England, the Isle of Man,
Palestine, Egypt, Slovakia, Hungary and Argentina.

Three original art exhibitions will be on display at the Conference and the
artists will be available for an informal talk and questions.

a. Mayer Kirshenblatt’s “Childhood Memories >from Opatow, Poland” is his
reflection of stories he told his three daughters about growing up in Poland
before the Holocaust.

b. >from Montreal, artist Susan Shulman’s “In Our Memories Forever”, the
hypothetical has become real. Through the existence of a family archive of
letters written by her young grandparents between 1898-1900, the painter has
been afforded a glimpse into the lives of her ancestors and their flight
from Russia and eventual immigration to Canada.
c. Family Fabrics: An Exhibit by the Pomegranate Guild of Judaic Textiles
of Toronto, is an exhibit of original textile pieces incorporating
genealogical research and family history. Some pieces have been constructed
using heirloom fabrics.

d. The Exhibition of Family Trees by students in Toronto Hebrew Day Schools
Grades 4 and 5 shows the work of the grade 4 students of the Toronto Heschel
School, a Jewish Day School where the arts play a major role, and the work
of grade 5 students at the Bialik Hebrew Day School of Toronto.

e. In conjunction with the Toronto Jewish Film Festival, the second
largest Jewish film festival in North America, and one of the largest Jewish
film festivals in the world, the Conference will be presenting the Jewish
Genealogical Film Festival. Films of interest to Jewish genealogists will be
featured Tuesday and Wednesday nights. Two of the films are expected to be
presented by respective film makers, one by a person portrayed in the film,
others by persons knowledgeable in the topics.

Tuesday Cinema 1: “The Jews of Poland”, & “The Secret”
Tuesday Cinema 2: “Bene Israel: A Family Portrait” & “Uncle Chatzkel”
Wednesday Cinema 1:“Wierzbnik: Impressions of a Town that Was” &
“Photographer”
Wednesday Cinema 2: “I am home” & "Minyan on the Mira”

Feed the mind, body and soul at the Conference’s Gala Closing Banquet. In
addition to our wonderful guest speaker, Dr. Irving Abella, and a great
meal, the evening will provide live entertainment. Prior to and during the
Banquet, entertainment will be provided by Beyond the Pale (see
http://www.borealisrecords.com/a_beyond.html ), who will perform Klezmer
music, the traditional folk music of eastern-European Jews.

At Toronto 2002, you’ll have it all: a great genealogical experience, great
friends, food and Jewish Genealogies own version of Arts & Entertainment. I
f you haven’t registered yet, times almost gone. Register now at
www.jgstoronto2002.ca. See you in Toronto!

Yes there are.
I am compiling a list of resources for all main Communities in Italy.
But not all Jewish documents are stored in the Archives of Jewish

Oldest resources can be found in the local State Archives.
For Jews in Venezia there are Inquisition documents since 1648, there is a

For Asti there are documents >from 1601.
Genova documents since XV century.
Firenze 70 big books of documents since 1650.

There are documents about Jews in Mantova, Modena, Sermide, Scandiano, ecc.

Oxford meeting on 21st #general

I'm just advising everyone that the meeting that was to be held on Sunday 21
July is cancelled.

There are insufficient people attending to make it worthwhile and I've lost
my voice. As I'm supposed to be giving the talk it would be rather
difficult to make myself heard!

We will be rescheduling the meeting.
