Could you please tell us where this rabbi lived? "Rabinovich" is not
at all an uncommon name; there are (at least) several Rabbis
Rabinovich; it might be interesting to have a clue about a possible
connection with one of these with the object of your search. A
geographical hint might be a clue for us, and ultimately for you
too.

New ShtetLinks Manager #poland

Joyce Field
 

I am pleased to announce Fred Apel as the new ShtetLinks Project
Manger. Fred will take on a tough role, stepping into the shoes of
Chuck Weinstein, who, as the Project Manager for over four years, has
made ShtetLinks into a major JewishGen project. We are sad to see
Chuck step down but it is understandable that he needs to re- focus
his energies at this particular time in his life. Chuck has
graciously agreed to help acclimate Fred in his new role and for the
time being will continue to moderate the ShtetLinks mail list. I
will certainly miss working with Chuck.

Fred brings to his new position a wealth of experience in Jewish
genealogical activities. He is a Life Member and Vice President of
JGS Michigan and an advisor for the Society's award winning
newsletter,"Generations," and their website. He also produced a
local cable television show about genealogy and JGSMI and has
compiled a book entitled "Beginner's Workshop in Print" that is
presented to all new members of JGSMI. In addition, as a JewishGen
volunteer, he has helped with several necrologies and has done other
work on the Yizkor Book project.

We look forward to his bringing his talents and energies to
ShtetLinks and helping that project develop to its fullest potential.

R' Bernard GINZBURG #rabbinic

Berenice <berenice.mcarthur@...>
 

Good evening & Shana Tova to you...

I'm not sure if this is the correct address to contact but I am
hoping you can at least refer me to the correct person who would be
able to help.

My story is as follows ...

I was born Berenice SHEIHAM in November 1959.
My parents were Israel SHEIHAM & Rita Betty LIEBERMAN.

My mother & grandmother (Beatrice LIEBERMAN) arrived in South Africa
sometime after WW2 >from Nottingham England where my mother was born.
My mother passed away in 1983 and as far as I am aware I have no
living relatives on her side.

Until 3 years ago I believed that my mother's family were all born
in England. My daughter had to do roots project as part of her Bat
Mitzvah programme and we uncovered some facinating information.

My great grandfather, Bernard GINZBURG, was a rabbi >from Riga,
Latvia. He married Fanny JACOBSON and they had 2 sons Julius and
Harry. When Fanny died, Bernard in biblical fashion married her twin
sister Sarah Rose JACOBSON. Rabbi Bernard and Sarah immigrated to
Cape Town, South Africa in the late 1800s and proceeded to have 7
children, of which my grandmother Beatrice was one.

I believe that Rabbi Bernard was a guard in one of the British
concentration camps during the Boer War.

The entire family moved to Wales in the early part of the 20th
century.

Rabbi Bernard was very musical and some of his tunes are apparently
still sung/played in British Shuls.

The childrens names were: Harry, Julius, Florrence, Lionel, Minnie,
Beatrice, Lilly and Evelyn.

That is the sum total of what I know and I'm hoping there is some
way I can find out more information on my great grandfather. I would
love to be able to trace copies of some of the tunes and music he
wrote.

Many thanks for taking the time to read my letter.

Regards
Berenice McArthur

New: Ozorkow, Poland PSA Project (near Lodz) #lodz #poland

rieke nash <rieken@...>
 

Dear Fellow Researchers,

I am happy to announce that 1,639 new indices to non-microfilmed Jewish
vital records of Ozorkow are pending addition to the JRI-Poland
database. Some 19th century and first two years of the 20th century Jewish
vital records of this town have been indexed by the JRI-Poland team in
Warsaw as part of the JRI-Poland / Polish State Archives (PSA) Project.

Ozorkow is located only 20 miles / 32 kilometers NW of Lodz and had a
large Jewish population before the Shoah.

Some of the towns located close to Ozorkow are:
Lodz, Aleksandrow Lodzki, Piatek, Zgierz, Leczyca, Kutno, Strykow.

o Summary of New Indices to Ozorkow Records

The types and years of records are as follows:

Marriages: 1844-55, 1888-1889
Deaths: 1887-90, 1897-1902

o Surnames Found in the New Indices

Surnames found in the Ozorkow indices can be viewed on
www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/psa/ozorkow_surn.htm

o The Lodz JRI-Poland / Polish State Archives Project

Indexes to non-microfilmed 19th century Ozorkow Jewish records housed in
the Lodz Archives were indexed for addition to the JRI-Poland database
under an agreement between JRI-Poland and the Polish State Archives
(PSA). For information about the PSA project see:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/psa/psastat.htm

This new material will finally allow you to expand your research into a
time period or geographical area that has been elusive and beyond your
reach. Once these indexes are available, you may simply print out an
order form >from the Jewish Records Indexing-Poland web site and order the
records >from the Polish State Archives.

Updates on the JRI-Poland/PSA Ozorkow are at:

Need Hebrew translation of my surnames #general

Pam G <pgosl@...>
 

Hello,

I would like to be able to identify my family surnames in Hebrew in an old
film, if possible, and am a total novice with the Hebrew alphabet. Is this
too ambitious for me? I'm willing to try, if the printing is legible.
Also new to using viewmate; I'll post the names here, and then I can go to
viewmate if that's best(only way to transfer via computer?) , or I can
accept an attachment via private email(that would be preferable to me). I
would like these ASAP as I only have access to the film for a couple of
days. Thanks so much for any help!!
Here are the names, along with a few basic words in those documents,

LEFFMANN
JUDELL or JODEL or FIEDEL or JUDEL (spelled differently different records)
RENDSBURG
MAGNUS
ISAAC (first name)
HANNCHEN (first name)

birth
death
marriage
date

Thanks so much for any help. . .

Hints when using telephone numbers #general

Shana Egan <segan@...>
 

from time to time, questions about phone numbers are asked. Responses
usually send the questioner to different phone directories on the web.
Here are some things to keep in mind once you get the phone number:

Web phone directories don't always have the latest phone number for a
person Some areas of the country have had several area code changes in the
past few years. The base number may be correct, but is the area code?

Sometimes when moving, a person may *take* their phone number with them.
In such a case, the phone number may not seem to *belong* to the area the
person now lives.

Sometimes when an area *ran out of phone numbers* new phones were given
surrounding area phone numbers. Again, the phone number may not seem to
*belong* to the area the person now lives.

I hope this helps someone
