Jewish Pale of Settlement Durnig WW 1", Publ by Metropolitan Books. This book

Subject: Creating Your Own Search Applications


I just noticed that Steve Morse has added a new search tool to his
repitoire. Unlike his previous tools, this one is not a search
application. Rather it is a tool that lets other people build search
applications for whatever data they might happen to have.

Although I personally don't have a database to share, I can see how
valuable this would be to genealogists if others with databases adopted
Steve's tool to make their databases available to the masses. I'm sure
that there are many of us who have such data (perhaps cemetery data for
example) and want to make it available and searchable, but don't have
the web expertise to do so. With Steve's tool, it's very simple to make
this data available.

So if you have a database that you'd like to share, check out Steve's
new tool. It's at

http://stevemorse.org/create

and the instructions for using it are clearly described on his
frequently-asked-questions page. At the end of the faq page he gives
several demonstrations and examples of using the tool.

As usual, if you have any questions about it, please direct them to
Steve rather than to me. His e-mail address is at the top of the
website.

Joseph GRANER #hungary

georges <georges.graner@...>
 

Dear siggers,
My father Joseph Graner, born at Budapest, Hungary, in 1901, got the french
citizenship in 1948. But yesterday I found that there was another Joseph
GRANER, born 18/5/1902 at Nakykapos (Hungary) who obtained the french
citizenship on December 6, 1932. If I were courageous, I would go and look
in the naturalization files for this unknown person, but (who knows?)
somebody in French-Sig or in H-Sig might have met him somewhere. Who knows
this Joseph GRANER ? I must add that there is no Nagykaros in the book
"Where once we walked" but there is a Nagykapos.
Thank you for any suggestion for further resaerch.

Ungvar cemetary book #hungary

Judy Petersen
 

Dear Norman,
Are you still giving out the e-mail address for the Mr. Reisman who has
the Ungvar Jewish cemetary book? My STOSSEL relatives listed Uzhgorod/Ungvar
as their last place of residence prior to coming to the US in 1891/93 and I
thought it might be worthwhile to find out if there were any STOSSEL's in the
cemetary book as they might be related to me.
Thank you for whatever help you can provide.

Sincerely,

Judy Petersen

Rozalimas wooden synagogue #lithuania

Kenneth Zucker <kenneth.zucker@...>
 

RED ALERT

Rozalimas has one of the few remaining wooden synagogues in Lithuania. I
have just heard that the local authorities have sold it to two young
businessmen who want to pull the building down and use the wood for the
construction of a cafeteria. Two frequent Dutch visitors to Rozalimas Dora
and Arnold Boom are seeking to buy the synagogue off the two businessmen and to then take steps to raise money to restore it. However it is by no means certain that on their own they will succeed in halting this act of
vandalism.

I know that there is a great deal of interest in the wooden synagogues of
Lithuania and I shall be grateful for any suggestions as to immediate action that can be taken with the authorities to preserve this part of our
heritage.

I have previously been in contact with the Rabbi of Vilnius. If anyone has
his e-mail or other address could they please let me have it.
