German translation-VM5490 #general

Rose & Robert Raymen <rr.raymen@...>
 

Dear Genners

I have a postcard in my possession that requires German translation. The
card was sent by my father to my mother in Kalisz, Poland. The front of the
postcard has a photo of Danzig (Gdansk) and was probably posted in the mid
1930's.

The image can be viewed directly at

Please respond privately.

Best wishes

Re: Anybirthday.com #general

I also have been having weeks-long issues with anybirthday plus. In the
past (and I have subscribed for over a year) this has been a generally
problem-free website. While the none-fee version provides some detail
that might help you find a relative, the plus features provide full
addresses and other sorting and filtering capabilities. The problems
are now extreme sluggishness, database log in failures, passwords not
working. While their customer service has replied (no name is given
and the email responses arrive days after my complaints have been
emailed), the promise of a solution to the problem evaporates quickly
and the same errors continue. The best email address for the fee-based
service is plus@..., but I am nearly at the point to
contacting the better business bureau in the town in Ohio where the
site is based in an attempt to get some assistance with the matter.

Question on conversion from Judaism in Europe #general

Leslie Weinberg <artsoul@...>
 

I was just informed by my aunt, who spoke to a first cousin of hers for
the first time in about twenty years, that when he went to Europe after
the War to search for his aunt and cousins, he was told by a survivor
that although he didn't know what happened to them, he did know that
they had converted to Islam, possibly, but he also mentioned Bahai. Was
this something which occurred in Europe, and would this conversion have
saved them during the War?

Does anyone have access to Galveston, TX arrivals?

Re: Finding out in which district in Warsaw family lived #warsaw #poland

Kris Murawski <kris.murawski@...>
 


Ulica Karmelicka was in the V and VI police district ("cyrkul").
Ulica Panska was in the VIII police district ("cyrkul").
I should have said that this was the case in 1870.
Looking back at the original posting, I believe that we are talking about
the status between the two world wars rather than at the end of the
ninetienth century. If this is true, then looking at the map referred to by
Hadassah Lipsius (http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/images/war80.jpg), Ulica
Karmelicka seemed to be running along the border of the IV and V districts
in its upper (northern) part (higher street numbers), and between the III
and XII districts in its lower (southern) section (lower street numbers).
It is hard to say, the map is not that precise. Panska was in the VIII
district all the time.

Breugus #austria-czech

Esther Bloch <Esther.Bloch@...>
 

To put this subject to rest, I would like to draw your attention to the
Concordance to The Bible (by Dr. Solomon Mandelkern).
The root of "Resh", "Gimel", "Zain" in its different grammatical forms and
declinations is cited 50 times. To name a few, Genesis 45:24, Proverb 29:9,
Deuteronomy 2:25, Jessiah 32:11.
Unfortunately, I don't have The Bible in English.
We did agree on the meaning of the word (to be angry, enraged and ennoyed)
It seems to me that this is the most likely and logical source of the the
word "Breugus".

Dr. Alexandr Putik of the Jewish Museum in Prague informed me that the
following records regarding the Jewish community of Uhersky Ostroh are kept
at the museum:

The Book of Familiants >from 1798-1832;
The census of 1727;
List of Familiants 1790-1802.

Thanks to the many Listers who took so much time and trouble to provide me
with valuable information about my father's birthplace.
No longer a mystery, thanks to your knowledge and expertise in handling

Genealogical research #latvia

Arlene Beare <arl@...>
 

I would like to make it clear that Latvia SIG recommends that for
authentic Genealogical research one should contact the Latvia State
Historical Archives in Riga.

Latvian State Historical Archives
Slokas iela 16
Riga LV-1007
Latvia
Email address is irinwein@...

irinwein@...

The research done is all on original documents and the charges are minimal
There is a delay often extending to many months but it is well worth the
wait and the results totally reliable.

Anyone wishing to ask a Private Genealogical Researcher to do research on
their behalf is of course perfectly at liberty to do so. Private
researchers do good work and often consult publications and other sources
that the Archives do not hold. However when it comes to total accuracy with
Vital Records, Census Returns and Family Lists the Archives have these at
their disposal and are so familiar with the different families and family
names that they can often connect families just by looking at the data
supplied.

I offer these comments in view of my posting of the link to a website that
does offer Genealogical Research. The link to a site that is of interest to
researchers is absolutely fine as long as you bear in mind the comments I
have made above.
