The March 2005 edition of HADASSAH MAGAZINE has a story on

interesting information on the past and present Jewish communities
with special mention of the town's of Brno, Olomouc, Holesov, Trebic,
Jihlava, Mikulov, and Zwittau/ Svitavy.
Personalities who once hailed >from this area like Tom Stoppard,
Alois Jeittles, Rabbi Oppenheimer, musician Eitan Otto Lustig,
artist Anna Ticho, and Israel (Robert) Blum who introduced beekeeping
to Palestine are also mentioned.

I had a relative in Williamsburg Brooklyn using this exchange.

I believe the cross-directory in the Brooklyn Public Library would allow you to
locate an address >from a phone number. [This is a phone directory but numerical:

Actually, Brooklyn was divided (at roughly the level of Prospect Park) into a
northern and a southern half, and exchanges were assigned to one half or the
other. An EVergreen number could have been anywhere in the northern half of
Brooklyn, not necessarily in Williamsburg. The prefixes didn't necessarily refer
to the half you would expect; ESplanade was a southern half exchange and was not
used in Brooklyn Heights, where the Esplanade (properly the Promenade!) is.

Need Records for Kolno #general

Have any genners had success in obtaining records,(birth, marriage, death) >from
Kolno, Russia/Poland? There was a fire in 1932, and most records were lost,
however, perhaps some may have been duplicated elsewhere. I am searching for my
grandmother, Eni Libe ROTHSCHILD and have found nothing except her ship manifest
in 1903 to Philadelphia. I believe her husband was Wolf Baer ROTHSCHILD but
cannot find any records. He died when my father was very young.

Gen 101: What to do with SSNs? #general

Micah Salb
 

I have a few relatives for whom I've found Social Security Numbers >from SS Death
Records. But I haven't found any use for these SSNs. How can I use SSNs to
advance to other information, such as place of birth and parent names and
immigration data and so on?

Suggestions Needed: PERLMAN #general

Hello everyone,

I don't know if my problem is unique but I definitely need more ideas of what to
do. I am working on the 1930 census looking for one particular family in Chicago,
Illinois.

Head of household: Morris or Maurice or Jack or Jake or Jacob

Wife: Mildred

Son: Theodore or Ted or Teddy born 1926 in Chicago

Daughter: Trina born 1928 in Chicago

Last name: PERLMAN

I have tried every combination that I know of without any luck. I thought using
the children's name would find the family but has not. I even contacted Ted who
confirmed they were living in Chicago in 1930.

Does anyone have another idea that I could try?

I found Uncle Jack's father, mother, and younger siblings (single) in the 1930
census. But not Jack and Mildred.

Thank for any suggestions.

Link: Jews in American History #general

A few days ago I sent out the website link below which is "Challenge and Change:
Jews in American History". The reason I ended up at this site was that I was
looking for information on Jews who went to farm in Connecticut in the 1890s
supported by the Baron de Hirsch Fund (I believe this is what my pgps did). Well,
ahf tsu loches (pardon the transliteration) that particular link on that page was
no longer functioning. I did manage to track down the author and he is
snailmailing me a copy of what was on that page. Should anyone be interested let
me know (thru a personal e-mail) and I will send you a copy.
