I also remember Adventure's Inn and Nathans in Yonkers. Did anyone frow up
in the Bronx?
Yeah, I used to frow up in the Bronx all the time!

But seriously, I was born in the Bronx (Clay Avenue, near 170th St., I
think), but I only lived there until I was six, when my family moved to
Yonkers. My Mom was recently in a hospital in the Bronx, so while I was
visiting her (I live in Dallas now) I took the opportunity to visit the old
neighborhood. One fruit stand was still exactly where I remember it, 43 years
ago. And all in all, the place didn't look half as bad as I expected it to
look (one advantage of low expectations, I guess).

In Yonkers, we lived just up the hill >from Adventurers Inn, which later
became Nathans. I even worked there for a few days one summer.

Photo of 7th Anniv. death of V. MEDEM #general

Byron Marcus <bymarcus@...>
 

I have an old photograph that was published in the "Forward" of January 26,
1990. The caption reads: HONORING THE MEMORY OF A FAMOUS LEADER OF THE
JEWISH WORKING MASSES - Some of the people who gathered at Mt. Carmel
Cemetary in Brooklyn, N. Y., Sunday, January 19 to commemorate the 7th
anniversary of the death of Vladimir MEDEM, the beloved Bundist leader. In
the center are: H. GILISHINSKY, Jacob PAT (representatives of the Rumanian
and Polish "Bund", respectively) and R. ABRAMOVITCH (right), representative
of the Russian "Bund", who laid wreaths of the grave.
If these names or the event are meaningful to anyone out there, I would be
happy to scan the photo and e-mail you the file or snail-mail a printout.

Asunto: Searching in Argentina

Hi Everyone! I have had some luck searching for documents in Argentina,
basically in the the civil registrars office. I have most of my family
still living in Argentina but am trying to uncover the "mysteries" of
the families arrival at the turn of the century. My families come from
the Ukraine and Odessa. In the Ukraine, I have the name of a town called
"TATARK/O" and >from Odessa, it was most likely >from NOVY BUK.

When they arrived, they settled in Entre Rios and La Pampa (Bernasconi
and surrounding areas) The people in the registro civil in La Pampa are
extraordinary! They sent me a ton of documentation!

I am searching for these families:
TRUPP/TRAJTERMAN/LIPOVESKY-ROSENBERG/MARCHALIK-DREIMAN-ROSENBLIT.

I have my great-grandfather's death certificate which states everything
but the elusive name of his father. I have contacted CEMLA and they do
not have an entry for my ggf YOSEL TRUPP. Any suggestions on how I
could locate his resident or citezenship papers or any other document
that would state his parents names? I am guessing he arrived to Arg.
around 1900-1906.

B'shalom,
Mirta Trupp Dreiman

Hi. THanks for writing. If I may ask another question, can you tell me where I can found out more about Hamburgo port, where and how can I get
in touch with their records?

Thank you,
Mirta Dreiman

Dear David: I am interested in getting the Minsk Gub. Research Project going

particularly interested in the shtetl of Pukovitzi just south of Minsk and in
the Minsk Gubernia.
