On the Canadian manifest which we pointed to the
other day, there is both a Michael 9, and a Mysl 7,
both male. So most likely the Michael indexed in the
UK database is the older brother.

We also saw the index for Uryph at the UK site but have not
looked at the manifest to verify the accuracy of the transcriber.
It is more likely this is Mysl if the age is correct.

In addition, Mysl is a valid Yiddish name for several Hebrew names .
How it relates to Aaron or Joseph would be more speculation without
additional information.

Tom from Boston 1930s #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

My mother met a distant cousin of hers who used to vacation with his
mother's mother, Sarah, on Coney Island (NYC) in the (early or mid)
1930s. Sarah and her husband were involved in a yiddish speaking
group (Bundists?). At that time my mother and Tom were both single and
in their early 20s. Tom lived with his non-Jewish divorced father in
Boston and was going to college at the time( probably in Boston).

There is a chance that his uncle (or greatuncle) >from his mother's
side was in the management of a Boston Department store.

My mother's family had emmigrated >from Palestine to the USA several
years earlier.

I would be happy to hear if any of the above sounds familiar to anyone.

Given name MYSL #general

Whilst I have seen the more recent postings on the subject, I thought I
would contribute my initial thought which was MYSL might have been a
corruption of Mazel, as I have come across both men and women with the given
name of Mazel (Luck).

Michael Goldstein, President of IAJGS #poland

Billie Stein <billie.stein@...>
 

The National Board of the Israel Genealogical Society and all of its
members congratulate our National President, Michael Goldstein, on his
election to the presidency of the the International Association of
Jewish Genealogical Societies.

This is a history-making event, and one which we hope will set a
precedent, as it is the first time that this high position is held by
an Israeli. It highlights the fact that IAJGS is truly an
international association.

We at IGS are certain that Michael will breathe fresh air into the
organization, and wish him great success in his undertaking.

Phonetic Guide to Polish Towns? #poland

JudiZimmer
 

Even prior to attending the conference in Philadelphia, I knew that I
was mispronouncing many of the shtetls, towns and cities in Poland. At
the various presentations, I realized just how incorrectly I was
pronouncing them! Is there a resource on JewishGen or any other website
that lists them and includes the phonetic pronunciation? Such a guide
would, I believe, be very helpful to those of us without familiarity of
the Polish language.

Paris France Search w/Lodz Connection #poland

Ann Linder
 

I'm trying to track down an aunt in Paris, France.
The aunt's name was BELLA PEERENBAM. (or a variation of that; perhaps
with an initial "B" as in Beerenbam)

She was born in Lodz, is related to Kapelusz family, survived World
War II in France. Her last known address was 22tev Rue Ledion, Paris
14e. She and my mother corresponded after the war.

I don't speak or read French. This search will be a hard one for me.
Can anyone assist on this one?

Thanks.
Ann Linder
