:-) new Irish database - a St. Patrick's Day gift from Boston College #general

pweinthal@...
 

Top O' The Mornin' to You!

Today, on St. Patrick's Day, Boston College is placing online a
database that will you help you track down Irish immigrant ancestors.
The database covers 90 years of ''Missing Friends'' classified ads
placed in Boston's Roman Catholic newspaper "The Pilot" between 1831 to
1921. Families were separated during the great Irish migration.
Husbands preceded wives, siblings were separated, mothers followed
after children. By the time the rest of the family arrived in Boston,
earlier arriving Irish immigrants had moved on to follow jobs working
on the railroads or the canals, their whereabouts unknown.

Tens of thousands of ads were placed; it's estimated 75% led to
successful reunions. The database is an electronic version of the
eight-volume publication ''The Search for Missing Friends: Irish
Immigrant Advertisements Placed in the Boston Pilot,'' which Boston
College Professor Ruth-Ann M. Harris researched and edited for the New
England Historic Genealogical Society.

The website -- ''Information Wanted'' can be found at:

http://infowanted.bc.edu/

Anticipating a deluge of hits - especially in the Irish Mecca of Boston
- the university's information and technology department has put
resources in place to handle the volume of inquiries

Hebrew translation #general

Judy Wolkovitch <judywolk@...>
 

Can someone please tell me what the phrase "Chederim M'toknim" means? (Mem
tav vov koof nun yod mem). It is in connection with the running of a school
in Poland and the translation I was given was "fixed rooms" but that doesn't
make sense.

Many thanks,

Judy Wolkovitch
