Notice of Next Meeting

DATE: Wednesday, May 24, 2006

TIME: 6:00 P.M. Library open

7:30 " Announcements

7:45 " English Section Program

PLACE Beit Frankfurter. 80 Derech Beit Lechem in the Baka'a
neighborhood.

Buses: 7, 21(>from the Central Bus Station) 30,

TOPIC: "The Pity Of It All" A Portrait of the German-Jewish Epoch
1743-1933. by Amos Elon. "A memorable evocation of a disappeared world",
discussed >from a genealogical vantage point by the renowned literary
reviewer, Judy Clark. This is not your usual book review. I have been
searching for some time for the right person to present this important
book to our group and have finally succeeded.

For any one with family roots in Germany, an interest in
the Jews of that country, and/or curiosity about the era, you will get
an in depth description of what life was like for a significant portion
of the Jews of Germany in the 18th and 19th centuries , leading up
to the rise of the Nazi era. The German-Jewish experience was
unique in many ways. " The duality of German and Jew, 2 souls in
a single body, would preoccupy and torment many German Jews
thru-out the later 18th, 19th and first decades of the 20th centuries.
Nowhere in Western Europe was this duality as deeply felt and finally
as tragic".

Replete with details, descriptions of the complexity and
richness of events and culture, portraits of "movers and shakers"
and the resultant consequences, this study provides a very insightful
look into the rise and fall of a fascinating , intriguing and complicated
Jewish community.

And the questions that result, and the lessons to be
learned have importance for all of us.

Re: Sending money home to Galicia #galicia

Mark Halpern
 

In Philadelphia, >from the 1880s up until WWII, at least four Jewish
owned "banks" operated. These so called Ethnic or Immigrant banks
collected money >from immigrants to pay for (and arrange) travel for
family and landsmen to join the recent immigrant in the US.

Of the four Ethnic Banks of Philadelphia, two (Blitzstein and Lipshutz)
have been indexed by the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater
Philadelphia (JGSGP) and the Philadelphia Jewish Archive Center (PJAC)
and these databases, along with an explanation of the collection, can be
found on the JewishGen website at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/USA/PhilaBlitzstein.htm and
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/USA/PhilaLipshutz.htm. We believe
these may be the only records of this type that have survived in the US,
but these so called Ethnic banks existed in other gateway cities. New
York must have had many of these types of banks.

JGSGP and PJAC will index the remaining two banks -- Rosenbaum and
Rosenbluth. You may be familiar with the Rosenbluth Travel, one of the
largest travel agencies in the US, which started business arranging for
travel of Jews >from eastern Europe to the US.

Dear fellow Galitzianas,

Around the turn of the last century the husband often came to America
first and sent money to the family in Galicia. How was this money forwarded?

Dear All,

Thank you very much for your emails concerning my search on
KITAICHIKs/NOZIKs/FRIDMANs.
It seems that there are several option on KITAICHIKs origin: Chinaman,
someone who imported fabric >from China (or dealt with kitajka - cheap cotton
fabric) or (I still cannot leave that out) this name has something to do
with Mongol's occupation and the way the person looked (though it's highly
improbable, but one never knows...) In any case I received lots of useful
and interesting information. THANK YOU!

Sisters! Where were they born? #general

J Wees <jreeva@...>
 

I am looking for any relatives of the two sisters of my grandmother
Molly ADLER MINUK.
Annie Adler was married to Harry GREENBERG. They lived in Ipswich and
had a son Norman, and a daughter as well.
Sarah Adler was married to Sam GOLDSTEIN and they lived in California.
I have now found all of Sarah's grandchildren and her one surviving
son. However, I am trying to find out where the sisters were born, and
who their parents were. Nobody in Sarah's family seems to know.
If you have any ideas of where I could find records of marriages or
births, please let me know. I was on a site today which was miraculous,
but never found any information on the women mentioned above. Possibly
because they were born overseas? I am at a loss!
