Zeicel -- Is it a first name, surname , or diiminutive name? #general

Rennie and Jack Salz <jrsalz@...>
 

In some letters >from relatives no longer alive, they refer to a Baba
(grandmother?)Zeicel. In some places they refer to her as Jessie. I know
that the surname was DAVID.

Could Jessie be a first name for a Jewish woman in the early 1800's? Can
Zeisel be a first name or is it a surname? Or does Baba Zeicel simply mean
Grandma dearest? (sweetie or little one?)

1851 Canadian Census is on-line #general

jan meisels allen <janmallen@...>
 

Dear Jewish Genners,

For those of you who are interested in Canadian censuses, you may find this
of interest. According to Canadian Gordon Watts, co-chair of Canada Census
Committee The Library and Archives Canada (LAC) recently placed scanned
images of the 1851 census on-line (Canada East, Canada West, New Brunswick
and Nova Scotia). The records are indexed by location only-not surname. The
census is "head-of-household only" record or "full family record" depending
up on the area being viewed. According to Mr. Watts, this was probably due
to prior to the Canadian Confederation, these areas were separate colonies
each doing things their own way. The census of 1851 is accessible through
the Library and Archives Canada

Re: Polish State Archives on my own #poland

There is no special authorization needed to visit any branch of the
Polish State Archives or use any of their collection that is available
to the public. However, since you have limited time at the Archive, you
should contact the Archive branch you plan to visit and tell them when
you are coming and what record collections (Fond, Signature) you plan to
use. Many of the Archive branches do not have adequate room to store all
their collection in site. To make sure the records will be available to
you, it is definitely best to plan a ahead and let the Archive know what
you want to see and when.

The Galician vital records up to 1905 that are available at the Archives
are written in either German or Polish. It is best to visit the Archive
with a translator experienced with these records. Also, in some of the
smaller Archives, the staff may not speak English. If you do go without
a translator, the information in the JRI-Poland database ( Town, Fond,
Signature, Year, Type, AKT) will be sufficient for the you to order the
register or microfilm and find the record.

For the Rzeszow Archive, please refer to their website at
http://www.rzeszow.ap.gov.pl/ for contact information. Click "Osrodek
Badania Historii Zydow" >from the menu. This is the webpage for "The
Jewish History Research Centre." Email addresses can be found by
clicking "Kontact" >from the menu. The Rzeszow Archive website is only in
Polish, but many other Archives have English language websites. See the
Polish State Archives English website at
http://www.archiwa.gov.pl/?CIDA=43 for more details.

The Rzeszow branch of the Polish State Archives is housed in the former
headquarters of the Jewish Community and just next to the "mala" or
small Synagogue of Rzeszow.

You can definitely acquire copies of Jewish vital records that are
indexed in the JRI-Poland database when you visit the Archive. The cost
of a record acquired through JRI-Poland order processing system is $10
US per record, which includes the cost of the copies, the cost of
registered airmail delivery, and the cost to convert US Dollar payments
to Polish Zloty. Each Archive branch sets their cost for record copies
(they charge by the page), but the cost of walking in and acquiring
copies will be less than $10 for records that are one or two pages. For
Rzeszow, just click on "Cennik" >from homepage to see their schedule of
fees (in Polish).

JRI-Poland volunteers run the order process for the benefit of the
Polish State Archives and the researcher. Fees for copies are set to
equal the actual cost of the process as closely as possible. The Polish
State Archives benefit by receiving payment in Polish Zloty by direct
bank-to-bank transfer and by dealing with only JRI-Poland. The
researcher benefits by being able to pay in US$ using personal checks or
credit cards and having JRI-Poland intercede when problems occur (which
is seldom).

Lwow Wojewodztwa / Rzeszow Province (records in Fond 990 in Rzeszow

With that information and the names and the Akt#, how difficult is it

Re: Well Written Subject Lines #general

MBernet@...
 

In a message dated 6/2/2006 1:24:44 P.M. Eastern Standard Time,
ringgenealogy@email2me.net offers as a good sample the following

"Example [as a good] Subject Line":

< 1885 - 1899; Austro-Hungarian Empire > Poland > United States: BLOCH /
RING >

==Yes, indeed, it's good when listing data in the body of a posting, but in
the subject line it's better to put the special case first and the background
information later.

==Take me: I'm looking for info covering the years 1400 to 2006, so 1885
(the year Oma Rosa Wolff turned 18) and 1899 (my Vati's first birthday) may
definitely be of some interest to me--but those aren't dates that would draw my
attention.

==Furthermore, many displays of incoming email subject lines are limited in
length, so the information at the end of the line may drop off. And if I
want to seek out a message I've archived, a search on BLOCH or RING would more
likely leap to my memory than one on 1885 or 1899.

==Therefore, I'd have conceptualized the subject line as follows

BLOCH / RING = these are the names of unique families whom, I hope, others
may identify
AustriaHungary = long enough. The Empire word is superfluous for the location
ca 1885 + = I assume that's the year they were known to have been in
Aust-Hung
Poland = probably meaningless. Poland was split up then by
Germany, Russia and Austria. If you meant Galizia, that
was part of Aust-Hung.
USA = shorter than United States
ca 1899 = I assume that's about the time they immigrated.

So my preferred subject line would read:

< BLOCH / RING, AustriaHungary ca 1885+, > USA ca 1899 >

That's all I need. If I, the reader, know no Blochs or rings, I can stop
scanning right there. If they're >from England or France, they're not mine. If
they didn't come to the USA at the turn of the century, I can safely delete
the item.

Remember, my comment referred only to subject lines. For data in the body
of the message,
< 1885 - 1899; Austro-Hungarian Empire > Poland > United States: BLOCH /
RING >

is a very good way of organizing a group of entries

Syndic defined ("Syndyk") #general

Barbara Zimmer <bravo.zulu@...>
 

In my Polish-English dictionary a "syndyk" is
defined as a "Syndic; legal advisor"

And >from an on-line dictionary:
syndic (sndk)
n.
1. One appointed to represent a corporation,
university, or other organization in business
transactions; a business agent.
2. A civil magistrate or similar government
official in some European countries.

Jon Harper asked:

amongst the
names of witnesses I find people of various occupations - a goldsmith,
furrier, butcher and the above named Mr BONUS. He is variously called
a 'Sydndykata' a 'Syndykusa' a 'Syndykura' which is followed
by 'Synagogi'. The latter name is obviously clear, but what on earth
is the occupation described in the other word?

Additional information concerning LitvakSIG elections #lithuania

litvaksig@...
 

Although the initial announcement of LitvakSIG elections contained
answers to some of Ann's questions, here is some additional information
that we hope will be useful.

The LitvakSIG website is undergoing some changes, and the bylaws
will be posted on the website within a week.

The bylaws specify only three named officers -- President, Secretary
and Treasurer. The President is the chief operating officer of the
organization. The Secretary keeps minutes of Board and other
LitvakSIG meetings, and the Treasurer has responsibility for the
organization's finances.

Other members of the Board are elected to at-large positions. Board
members have filled LitvakSIG functions such as Research Groups
Coordinator, Discussion Group Moderator, Online Journal Editor and
Webmaster.

Although it is expected that current Board members will be standing
for election, all positions are open and all LitvakSIG dues-paying members
in good standing are eligible to run for office. We look forward to
receiving qualified nominations >from the membership.

There will be a secret ballot mail ballot that will take place at the
end of July. We agree with Ann that receipt and counting of the
ballots by a disinterested party makes perfect sense.

JGSGW - June 11 - Joint Meeting with JGSMD #lithuania

Marlene Bishow <mlbishow@...>
 

The Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington will hold a joint meeting
and potluck luncheon with JGSMD

on Sunday, June 11, 2006
at 1:00 PM
at the
Potomac Community Center
11315 Falls Road
Potomac, MD

This is a members-only event and will include the Installation of Officers
for JGSGW for 2006-7.

Guest speaker: for the event will be

Schelly Talalay Dardashti,
noted Jewish genealogy journalist and President of JFRA Israeli
Genealogy Society. Her topic will be
"Making Connections: Every Genealogist's Dream."

Schelly knows first-hand how leads to information about one's ancestors can
come >from the most unexpected places. In the midst of one talk in Israel, as
she was answering a question about the myth of name changes, when an elegant
Indian woman in the front row broke in, "You know, the Menashe in Bombay
were Dardashti." In shock, she replied, "Don't move. We will talk later."
And they did, until 2.30 AM; determining that her husband's grandfather was
the missing brother of Schelly's husband's grandfather. We pieced together a
story of four wives, the Baghdad branch moving to Bombay, and added 400
descendants to the tree.

When she first broached the concept of a genealogy column to the Jerusalem
Post in 1999, the editor asked "Who's interested in dead people?" Following
the initial appearance of It's All Relative (IAR), which ran twice-monthly
through last year, a slew of emails, letters and faxes proved that the
audience was large. With online exposure, international readers' letters and
comments jumped exponentially.

Schelly Talalay Dardashti is a native New Yorker now living in Tel Aviv. She
is a freelance journalist and Jewish genealogy contributor for
www.ynetnews.com. She is a member of the Association of Professional
Genealogists (APG) and American Jewish Press Association (AJPA). Credits
include JTA, Reform Judaism, Outlook, NGS News, Avotaynu, many North
American Jewish publications. Schelly co-teaches two online Jewish genealogy
classes (Ancestry.Com/My Family.com). She taught Jewish genealogy courses
abroad, speaks in Israel/abroad to community groups/genealogy societies,
hands-on Jewish genealogy
workshops including a Farsi-language program. Her credits include
presentations at annual conferences: of the International Association of
Jewish Genealogy societie in London, Toronto, Washington and Las Vegas, and
is part of the Teaching Genealogy to Adults

Litvak SIG Election #lithuania

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

Due to the length of time that has passed since there has been an
opportunity to have a Litvak SIG election, perhaps it would be a good idea
to provide the following information to the membership or those interested
in the Litvak SIG and its future.

1. Copy of Litvak SIG By-Laws.

2. Description of open positions for election.

3. Job descriptions.

4. Current Board members, if they are eligible to run again, and what
position are they running for.

5. Who will be eligible to vote?

6. How will individuals vote and in what manner will they vote, i.e.,
e-mail, actual ballots, etc. Where will they vote, i.e., prior to the
Conference only or at the Conference or both? What are the dates for the
votes to be accepted?

7. Who will be in charge of counting the votes? It should be a
disinterested party.

To have a viable election, basic information such as the above would help
those who will be voting to make informed choices.

Thanks,

Ann Rabinowitz
