Arthur Kurzweil - JGSLA - Monday, Feb. 21: "Jewish Genealogy & The Case of the Honey Bee" #general

Pamela Weisberger
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles & the Westside Jewish
Community Center cordially invite you to a special evening with
Talmudist, Kabbalist, magician, genealogist & author, Arthur Kurzweil
for: "Jewish Genealogy & The Case of the Honey Bee"

Monday, February 21, 2011 at 7:30PM
Westside Jewish Community Center
5870 Olympic Blvd. Los Angeles 90036

Genealogy is not just names and dates on a family tree. The pursuit of
one's Jewish roots can be a profound experience for the family
historian. Some of us are just getting started, other have been
toiling at it for years. What have we learned and where are we going?
Just as the honey bee arises each morning and thinks it is busy
collecting nectar to produce honey, the bee's more important mission
might just be that it is -- in the process -- cross pollinating the
plants in the garden. Arthur Kurzweil, author of ">from Generation to
Generation," and known to many as America's foremost expert in Jewish
family history research, will share his observations on the trails
we?ve blazed and what the future holds for Jewish genealogists.

Free for JGSLA & JCC members. $5 for Guests. Traveling library
available starting at 7:00PM.

Yiddish nicknames LANE/LAHN family question #lithuania

Jeff Miller
 

On a July 1906 Baltimore arrival record for ship Brandenburg are listed a
wife Simch LAHN (LANE) age 30 and children Beile (age 9), Abrahm (age 5),
Sabse (age 3), and Seil (age 2),coming >from Panevezys Lithuania (Ponievezh
Russia) via the port of Bremen to their husband and father Max LANE in
Harrisburg, PA.

I am wondering what the Yiddish nicknames might correspond to in "American"
names.

I studied Census listings and city directories for Harrisburg and noticed
That there was a Max LANE, living on Market Street for many years, who
started out as a shoemaker (and was later in the furniture business). He is
listed in City Directories >from as early as 1903.

I particularly need your help in my research for my families from
Harrisburg, PA to identify the names >from the manifest and if they
correspond to the family in the City Directories and Census listings.

In the 1910 Census, Max (36) is living with a wife listed as Yeit (Yetta?),
(age 32), children Rebecca (13), Sarah (11), Abraham (9), Edith (7), Harry
(5), and Annie (3). Max and Yeit are married at the time for 17 years and is
their first marriage. Max arrived in 1897 and was naturalized. Their total
number fo children was 6, all living.

In the 1920 Census, Max (45) was living with his children Bella (22), Sarah
(20), Abraham (18),
Edith (17), Harry (14) and Anna (12).

Re: Getting marriage certificates from NYC. #general

Gary Gershfield
 

Mark,

I went down in person to the office of the NYC Clerk, and
convinced them to conduct a search by the bride's maiden name, although I
provided the first name of the groom.

Marriage records 50 + years are public records, and you do not need to show
proof that you are a relative. The only issue is that after 1952, the
Marriage Indexes are not for public viewing.

Good luck.

Re: Photographing a postcard from Russia #general

Many thanks to all who suggested tips and tricks for separating two
messages on a single postcard (one on top of the other in different
color inks). I am writing to each responder individually and I must
say I am amazed at the number and variety of helpful comments I
received.
