Re: "My paternal GG-father (Harris Levy, also Harris Gould) is shown on the 1891
UK census as being an "Interpreter of Languages...".

My thanks to those kind respondents to the query I raised last week. With
the use of a more powerful magnifying glass (taking Robert Fraser's Sherlock
Holmes suggestion that bit further!), I have concluded that it is definitely
"Lib." and not "Lit." in the employer column and on that basis would like to
know how I might be able to obtain a list of libraries for
Whitechapel in 1891 and how I might go about researching workers employed by
them.

Film on vanishing Jewish heritage in Slovakia #general

Michael Gordy
 

I've seen a trailer of a lovely film by Yuri Dojc on Jewish heritage
in rural Slovakia. Dojc is a Jewish-Slovakian emigre, child of
Holocaust survivors. There are some interviews with Holocaust
survivors who stayed in Slovakia. The first exhibition of photos from
the project will be at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in NY on 24 March
2011. The URL is

I have no connection to the film, except that I am related to a couple
of the folks interviewed.

Georgia (USA) Archives Cuts Public Hours Due to Budget Problems #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

As with so many states/countries the budget crises effect libraries and
archives. The Georgia (USA) Secretary of State under which department the
Georgia Archives is located has announced that effective October 1, 2010
the public hours for the Georgia Archives will change to Thursday-Saturday
8:30 AM to 5:00 PM. Due to the reduction in public hours, when the Archives
are not open to the public, the Archives staff will be redeployed to
different functions. The core duties of the Archives had been genealogy
requests.
For more information see: http://www.sos.ga.gov/archives/

Thank you to Stephanie Weiner, IAJGS Public Records Access Monitoring
Committee for bringing this to our attention.

Need Help Locating Living Descendants of David Weiss (Hungary) #general

Barbara Kreisler <bk1650@...>
 

David Weiss emigrated to New York in 1901 >from Hungary. He married a
Hungarian woman by the name of Ray and they had three daughters ­ Ruth
(1909), Helen (1913) and Sylvia (1920)
David Weiss met his niece in New York after she arrived by ship in 1921.
His address was listed as 446 East 123rd Street, Manhattan, NY.

I have run up against a wall trying to obtain their married names. All I
have is the 1920 census with their estimated birth years.

Any help locating any living relatives would be greatly appreciated? My
father in law lost both sets of grandparents in the Holocaust.

Thank you,
Barbara Kreisler

Short Yiddish Translation #general

Linda Shefler
 

I have a picture with about ten words written on the back in Yiddish. If
there is a kind soul who would be willing to take a look at it and give me a
quick translation I would be most appreciative. I'm hoping that whatever it
says identifies the people in the picture. I will send it as an attachment.

Many thanks and Chag Sameach.
