A photo of my paternal grandmother has just been posted as ViewMate image
VM5304 (http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate)

The direct address is

The photo probably was taken in Poland, possibly in Augustow. Can you
tell me anything about the style and construction of the buildings, the
lone tree, the dress, the tools and artifacts on the porch, etc. that
would shed some light on my grandmother's life?

Please send responses to me directly, at RWeissJGS@..., and not to the
newslist.

Thank you in advance.

four great-grandparents for Uncle Harry, thanks to JRI-Poland #poland

Renee Steinig <rsteinig@...>
 

For the past couple of years, I've been researching the family of my
husband's elderly uncle by marriage. You've probably all heard variations of
this story: Uncle Harry was less than six years old when his mother died and
he spent much of his youth in foster homes. He had limited contact with his
father, who died 12 years later. Life in the present was a struggle and
there was been little conversation about the past. Until two years ago, when
I looked up some of his family documents as part of a 90th birthday present,
he didn't even know his grandparents' names or where his parents were born.

Fast forward to Stanley Diamond's Dec. 31 announcement of new records on
JRI-Poland. The list included many towns in the Tarnopol region, so I went
looking for Harry's mishpacha. And they were there! It was Jan. 1, Harry's
92nd birthday, and there on my computer screen were the names of four of his
eight great-grandparents. Thank you, JRI-Poland, for the joy of introducing
Uncle Harry to Mendel, Ruchel, Hersch, and Ratze!

Harold (Hal) Kaye - "Tom, Dick & Harry" Vaudeville Act, 1930s #yiddish

JMKaye@...
 

Searching for information about my grandfather, who was born Abraham Isidore
KLATSKIN in 1910, and immigrated to the US with his family in 1911. He was
known as Isidore or Izzy when he was young. I'm told he was in the Ziegfeld
Follies as a child.

In the early to mid-1930s, under the stage name Harold KAYE (which he later
took on as his legal name) (his nickname was Hal), he was part of a three-man
"knockabout comedy" vaudeville act known as "Tom, Dick & Harry". The act
performed at major theatres in the US, Canada and England, as well as on one
of the earliest voyages of the SS Normandie. The other members of the act
were Georgie Miller and Buddy Powers (which was the stage name of Sigmund
Purisch (sp.?)).

Hal retired >from the act at about the time that my father was born in 1936,
and worked as an electrical engineer for the rest of his career, including
at the 1939-40 World's Fair in New York. He and his family moved to Connecticut
in 1953. He died in 1999.

Any information would be much appreciated. Thank you!

RE: Reluctant Relative

While there are numerous ways to give standoffish relatives some logical
understanding of the benefits of sharing information, no amount of bartering
seems to be enough in these situations. By providing something by way of
graphic demonstrable fruits of one's own research, i.e. an actual record of
the names or the reproduction of a salient public document -- this might be
an attraction. But lecturing on the benefits -- I doubt it. Repeated
gentle efforts will show the way. Without knowing one's audience a bit more
and its ability to digest the message, attempts to extract data >from a
reluctant relative are doomed to failure. Also, sharing the joy of gaining
some of the results of research will be effective too. Look for commonality
of shared recollections of events, simches, etc. Good luck in your building
of the relationships -- and don't waste the possible on the impossible!
