I've posted what appears to be an early 20th century Yahrzeit card and
would appreciate a translation of the handwritten entry. Would also
like to know if the name of the deceased appears anywhere on the card.
I don't think so but would appreciate it if someone else could take a
look.

The scan is on ViewMate at the following address ...

Bessarabia Jewish Business Directory #general

Harvey Kabaker
 

The 1924 Bessarabia Jewish Business directory project is complete.

Bessarabia SIG has completed work on extracting names and other data for
Jewish businesspeople active in the early 1920s in the eastern counties
of Romania that formerly comprised the Bessarabia territory of pre-World
War I Imperial Russia.

Files in HTML and .xls format are available on the Bessarabian Databases
page at http://www.jewishgen.org/Bessarabia/Databases.html.

They report on grocers, shopkeepers, teachers, local officials, stone
carvers, butchers, bakers, innkeepers, lawyers, peddlers, rabbis, and
many others who worked in Romania's nine eastern counties and Chisinau
(the former Kishinev), and who apparently were Jewish. The 13,056
records represent 705 cities, towns, villages and hamlets.

The information was extracted >from the "Socec Annuary of the
Great-Roumania," dated 1924-1925, issued by the prominent Romanian
publishing house Socec & Co. The Library of Congress calls the
two-volume set a historic address book that "stands as the most complete
survey of Greater Romania during the interwar period."

A detailed description of the project and notes on the source are
available by clicking the title, "Bessarabia Business Directory,
1924-25" at the top of the page referenced above.

Volunteers who extracted the data were

Yiddish Literary Circles #general

Irving Skorka <irvela@...>
 

Hi--

The Circle may have been associated with the Arbiter Ring (Workman's
Circle) or other similar organizations. There were several literature
circles started as a result of the presence of jewish intellectuals that
came to the United States during the late 1890s and early 1900s.

I recently completed Aaron Lansky's book on the development of the
Yiddish Book Center entitled, "Outwitting History". It's an easy read
and discusses in detail how and why the Center was established.

Lansky spent many years collecting Yiddish books where he could. These
books were in the collection of many Jewish intellectuals living at the
time. They had grown old and could not find many people or libraries who
would take the books, including their children, who had become
Americanized and knew little Yiddish. He met them all, as he describes
in "Outwitting History". One of the many places he visited was Coney
Island. He may have knowledge of the subject Circle.

Sincerely,

Irv Skorka

Lillian Katz in NY circa 1940 #general

A. E. Jordan
 

I have a long time stumper on my tree and I need some new inspiration to
finding the answer.

In his will in 1941 my great grandfather (Jacob Joseph) leaves money to his
niece Lillian Katz. No one in the family remembers any details on Lillian
other than some vague remember of a sister (of Joseph) or maybe her
daughter living in the Bronx and being possibly a seamstress.

I had hoped it would become apparent in the 1940 Census but so far I am
seeing nothing there to solve this mystery.

I need some inspiration to figure out how to sort out this sister and her
family. Jacob was born in Austria circa 1866 the son of Joshua Selig
Joseph and Gussie Schwartz Joseph. Jacob say he immigrated to the USA in
1887 and I pick up his paper trail with his naturalization in 1892 in New
Jersey.

In the late 1880s he is living on the Lower East Side of Manhattan and
marries Theresia Lubasch in 1891. They lived in Hoboken and later Jersey
City, New Jersey and I know their details.

Jacob Joseph had a brother Israel Joseph born circa 1868 and who was
married in New York in 1897. I know Israel's details too. He lived
in Jersey City, New Jersey and died in 1918.

No where in any of the family papers do I find anything about Jacob and
Israel's sister. Any ideas on how to find this mystery sister and her
family? I don't know if Katz is her married name or the daughter's married
name or even what the sister's first name is.

Thanks
