Old letters are so wonderful to read. Reading the letters reminded me of
ones my mother found when my great grandparents were living in Simnas. My
cousin translated them to me the best she could. You could feel the
heartache the parents felt that the children were so far away in America.
They wanted so desprately to hear how the children were. Always wishing
them health and happiness. Thanking them for the Rubles they sent home so
that someone could buy some boots for their feet. How painful it was when
the letters did not come to them often enough....they are treasures.

Since you don't use capital letters, I have no idea what you are talking
about. Would you mind giving a few more details, and using the accepted
standard in Jewishgen, capitalizing family names?

have you ever encountered the name alk in olyka?

I noted this message on the Litvak SIG newsgroup and thought it would be of
interest to Latvian Researchers as well.
Arlene Beare
President Latvia SIG

The following may be of interest to Litvaks.
I have received several messages containing questions about the "Index of
JewishRecords in the FHL CD" that was produced by IAJGS. I am repeating two
of them here, with my response, as many others may have the same question.
Question No. 1
<< Is the CD you wrote about 3/2 the same or different >from the one I
purchased for $5. in SLCity last Conference? That one is not Mac
compatible. You say theCD you mention is Mac compatible. I spoke to FHL in
SLCity last week and the librarian told me the CD they sell is
notcompatible. Which is which? What is what? I would like a Mac compatible
CD if it is available. >>
RESPONSE -
Thanks for your enquiry. The Index of Jewish records in the FHL CD,
produced by IAJGS, is compatible for both a Mac and a PC. It is quite
different than the CD you purchased in SLC (which only provides a general
catalog of their holdings) and is far more advantageous for
Jewish research.
Question No. 2
<< I read the post in the news group, and I'm confused.
If the CD contains an actual index of records, then I'm interested. If it
contains only a list of towns, and which microfilms/fiche belong to them,
then I'm not. It's unclear to me why this doesn't replace the online index.>>
RESPONSE -
The Index of Jewish Records in the FHL CD, produced by IAJGS, is a very
comprehensive CD. It does include a list of towns, and which
microfilms/fiche belong to them. However, the CD contains far more than
that. It includes a tremendous amount of data, finding aids, etc., and is
compatible on both a Mac and a PC. It is far more than just an idex of towns.
Here is one example of the information contained in the index:
TITLE - Matrykula, 1826-1911
SUMMARY - Civil registration of Jewish births, marriages, marriage
supplements and deaths for Sereje (Seree), Suwalki, Poland; now Seirijai,
Lithuania. Text in Polish and Russian.
LANGUAGE - Polish, Russian.
LOCATION - Poland, Suwalki, Sereje (Sejny). Lithuania, Seirijai.
Russia, Suvalki, Seree.
FILM - 752589 - Akta urodzen, malzenstw, zgonow 1826-1831, 1837-1838,
1845-1846, 1848, 1850-1851, 1854, 1856.
FILM - 1496961 Items 19-32; Dokumenty do akt malzenstw 1883-1887, 1889-1894,
1897-1899.
FILM - 1496962 Items 1-8; Dokumenty do akt malzenstw 1900-1903, 1905-1906,
1908, 1911.

EXAMPLE No. 2
TITLE - 1941-1952 metu Lietuvos tretiniai: pirma knyga
SUMMARY - Alphabetical list by region of persons sent to Siberian
work camps >from Lithuania, 1941-1952. Indentifies the I.D. number,
name, father's name, birth year, date sent, date released or died, and name
of camp to which the person was sent. (Holocaust).
LANGUAGE - Lithuanian, Russian
LOCATION - Lithuania - Concentration camps
Russia, Siberia - Concentration camps
BOOK - 947.5 J7m
(Note: This book is located in the FHL in Salt Lake City, Utah and can only
be accessed there. However, it may be available via inter-library
loan by checking with your local library).
I hope the above examples will give you an idea of just how extensive
the index is.

Moderator plea and Happy Pesach #latvia

Arlene Beare <arl@...>
 

The job of moderating demands a lot of editing which may come as a surprise
to some of you.
I am not a school teacher but it really distresses me to post messages that
have sentences that do not start with a capital letter, have names of town
and countries in lower case and occasionally there is very little
punctuation. Editing is not just a case of editing the message as you read
it and sometimes due to the constraints of time I have to let the message
pass with a lot of inaccuracies.
I have really delighted at the new vibrancy that I detect in the newgroup
so please keep your messages coming. We all benefit >from the exchange.
Problems are usually shared by many others and so the answers are of
general benefit.
It is often difficult to decide whether you should reply to a message or
wait for one of the usual suspects such as Constance,Martha or myself to
reply. I would like to assure you that it does not matter how many replies
are posted and the same answer to a query will reinforce the reply. Once
the thread is exhausted it will be closed.

I take this opportunity to wish all of you a very happy Pesach.

I hope that you will try to come to London to the Conference in July as it
will be so nice to meet you.

I have no idea what Alk family, but I went to school, many moons ago, in the
1950's, with the Alk twins, Benita and Barbara. They would be, like me, in
their 60's now. They lived in Wash., D.C. I'm afraid that's all I know.
Either than or I'm having a prolonged senior moment.
Happy Passover.

Dear Mr. Cohen and other friend of Litvaksig, to whom it may concern,
Shalom >from Yerushalayim,

As you can find in my book THE LITVAKS (p.81) over 1,500 Lithuanian Jewish
families had settled in Kherson and other localities in Southern Russia. While a large proportion of of thesemade their living >from rafts or agriculture,there were others who engaged in petty trade and peddling.Once settled, they attracted relatives, friends and
aquaitances to these regions.

Geraldine Power's letters >from her Grandfather opened the flood gates of
memory for me.

I lived with my grandparents in the 1930's in England and remember well how important it was to receive and discuss letters >from family in the "Heime".I wonder therefore, would it be possible for our litvak sig or for Jewish Geneology to edit an electronic Yiddish letter scrap book, into which anyone
could post their family's yiddish letters.

They wouldn't have to be translated.

If enough accumulate, the scrap book could become an important Yiddish
literary and historical source - possibly even a latter-day Geneza.
