Re: Phonograph Record Restoration #general

Alan Steinfeld <alansteinfeld@...>
 

If the record is still playable on a phonograph, I suggest that you have
the recording transferred to a computer. The recording then can be
edited to decrease the distortion caused by the scratch. If the record
is unplayable, it may still be possible to retrieve the sound. I've read
about a technique whereby the grooves on the recording are scanned and
the sound that the recording would make is created >from the scanned
image. This is being used with recordings (was cylinders and the like)
that are considered too fragile to play. Some additional research would
be required to find someone who can do this.

Karaites vs Ashkenazim in Belarus? #belarus

Adam Katzeff <adam.katzeff@...>
 

Dear all,

At the moment I'm going through some records relating to Jews >from Vitebsk
guberniya arriving in Stockholm, Sweden between the years 1906 and 1914.
Hopefully the result will in the future be presented in some kind of
database, eventually on JewishGen. Among the records I found one that really
got me confused, maybe not so much >from a genealogical point of view, but
more >from a historical point of view. The record is for the following
person:

Israel Monusoff SCHUHAL (probably originally SHUGAL), born in about 1886 in
Vitebsk, son of Monus SCHUHAL and Ester VOLCHOK, registered in Drissa. When
he arrived in Stockholm he settled in suburb called Sundbyberg together with
the SOLOVEYCHIK family (originating in Sebezh).

Now to the tricky part. The record states that Israel Schuhal is a Jew
belonging to the Karaitic sect! To my knowledge the Karaites is a group of
Jews who don't believe in Talmud, who came >from the Middle East via Crimea
to Lithuania
in the 15th century and settled mainly in the small town of Trakai, not far
from
Vilnius. As they had a rather different belief than the Ashkenazic Jews in
the rest of Lithuania (and Eastern Europe) I have always thought they never
intermarried or shared social life. I'm not sure whether marriage between
Jews and Karaites were permitted according to Rabbinic law.

So, what about Israel Schuhal? The names of him and his parents are typical
Ashkenazim (the surnames are to be found in Alexander Beider's
dictionary on Jewish surnames in the Russian empire). As long as I have
understood, the Karaites speak a Tartar language. Could Israel Schuhal have
some Karaitic ancestry? Or is it possible that some Ashkenazim took on the
Karaitic belief?

My Grandfather's House Film in Los Angeles #lithuania

SoniaHoff1@...
 

Litvaks in the Los Angeles area are invited to a screening of Eileen
Douglas's acclaimed film, "My Grandfather's House: The Journey Home,"
co-sponsored by the Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles and the
Jewish Community Library of Los Angeles.

DATE and TIME: Thursday, February 9, 2006, 7:30 PM
LOCATION: Jewish Federation Building, 6505 Wilshire Boulevard,
Los Angeles 90048.
(Free parking will be available in the building's garage, just west
of the entrance. Since parking is limited, attendees are encouraged
to carpool. Street parking should be available if the garage is full.)

There is no charge for this meeting but due to limited seating, please
reserve space by email _resource@jclla.org_
or
by phone (323)761-8644.

You can find more details about this documentary at the JGSLA website,
_www.jgsla.org_ (http://www.jgsla.org) . This documentary is of particular
interest to Litvaks because in it, Eileen Douglas and her daughter Rachel
travel to Lithuania, visit the Kaunas Regional Archives, and many sources
of documents used in her research are described.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:

This personal documentary follows Eileen Douglas' determined search
to find her grandfather's house in Lithuania--the home he lived in
and left behind in 1911 when he fled, at 16, >from Kovno to America.
Four decades after his death, with only fragments to guide the way,
the documentary is Douglas'attempt to lift the veil of darkness and
discover "where it all began."

Eileen travels >from New York City to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in
Washington, to her mother's attic in Syracuse, to the homes of
relatives, and, finally, with her daughter at her side, to the block in
Kovno where her grandfather once lived. Along the way she unexpectedly
unlocks the mystery of stories he never told, discovers the fate of family
members lost in the war, learns of the glory that once was Lithuanian Jewry,
finds living relatives missing for years in Siberia, and resurrects a family
shattered by the traumas of the 20th Century.

Before the screening, filmmaker Eileen Douglas' daughter, Rachel Zients,
will discuss the making of the documentary, and, in particular, what
compelled this personal quest. The film will be followed by Q & A
with Zients.

applications to settle in Copenhagen #scandinavia

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

An ancestor of mine, R' Gerson Naphtali NATHAN (1775, Danzig-1850,
Copenhagen), supposedly submitted an application for permission to settle in
Copenhagen to the King in 1842. He was already recorded in the 1840 census
of Copenhagen. I have not seen the application and I am not familiar with
this type of document, so I have a few general questions:

1) What were the advantages of receiving such permission, and the
disadvantages of not (either because the application was denied or no
application was made)?

2) Was it ever obligatory to apply?

3) Were there any prerequisites for applying, such as a minimum time of
residency in Copenhagen or the rest of Denmark?

4) Did the applicant's having relatives in Copenhagen or the rest of Denmark
affect the application?

5) Did the success of an application have any implications for heirs of the
applicant?

Thanks very much and best regards,

New Books at UC Berkeley #general

jeremy frankel
 

With a new semester under way, I thought I would pay another visit to
the "new books" aisle. Once again I was struck by the variety of
Jewish themes of the books I saw.

Michelle Terrell has written an account of Jews living in Caribbean,
entitled "The Jewish Community of early Colonial Nevis." A small
compact book of some 183 pages, there are plans of community layouts,
photos of pottery, and perhaps most importantly, a list of the Jews
living in there in the late 17th century. Their names are sourced to
UK archival material. The book was published by the University Press
of Florida in 2005. The ISBN is 0-8130-2786-1.

A radically different theme was explored in Jeffrey S. Gurock's book
"Judaism's Encounter with American Sports." This book was published
by Indiana University Press in 2005. The ISBN is 0-253-34700-9.
Imaginative chapter headings include " The Training of "All American"
Yeshiva Boys" and " Shul vs Pool."

What could turn out to be a useful book to have on one's shelf is one
by Sharon Barcan Elswit, entitled "The Jewish Story Finder - A Guide
to 363 Tales, Listing Subjects and Sources." It was published in 2005
by McFarland & Company, Inc., Jefferson, NC, and London. The ISBN is
0-7864-2192-4.

The story descriptions are grouped in chapters with titles such as
"God, Faith and Prayer," Rabbis: Wit and Wisdom," and "Tricksters and
Fools." After each story description is a brief subject "connections"
such as Hasidic tales, mitzvot, music, followed by how else this
story theme is told.

Finally, following a more traditional theme is Wiliam Pencak's "Jews
& Gentiles in early America - 1654 - 1800." This was published by the
University of Michigan in 2005. The ISBN-10 is 0-472-11454-9.
Chapters highlight New York, Newport, Rhode Island; Charleston, South
Carolina; Savannnah, Georgia, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The
notes to the text and the bibliographic note, offer further reading
to this fascinating aspect of American Jewry.

Missing Radzyn Podlaski records found! #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

At the conference in Las Vegas last summer, the Jewish Records Indexing -
Poland presentation referred to the "discovery of missing records" for
various towns. In the talk, it was mentioned that:

"Each year some researchers with roots in Poland are the beneficiaries
of newly discovered registers, those that were either misfiled, mis-labeled
or in undocumented collections. In other cases, civil records offices
uncover books they didn’t know they had and pass them along to the PSA.

Fortunately, archivists in Poland are now bringing new discoveries to the
attention of JRI-Poland whenever they come across something they know
would be of interest to us .

It's happened again!

A few months ago, JRI-Poland placed an order with the Grodzisk Maz.
archives for copies of the 1905 index pages for the Radzymin records.
While studying the various registers in the fond, a staff member of the
archives realized that some of the books were not for Radzymin.
JRI-Poland was notified and, at our request, a detailed review of these
registers were made.

We learned that the registers are for Radzyn Podlaski and consist of
the following years/types:

Birth register: 1879 - 1913
Marriage registers 1863-1893, 1894-1906
Death register: 1882-1895

Index pages for these records have been ordered and an announcement
about the new Radzyn Podlaski indexing project will be made in the
near future.

One cautionary note...researchers should be reminded that this
was a unique find, and should NOT be considered as an omen for the
survival of missing registers of Jewish vital records for other towns.
