Re: Aqueduct.txt #general

SJHogarth <sjhogarth@...>
 

I had my 'techie' husband investigate the aqueduct.txt file located on
my C drive. He advised that although it initially tracked activity on
version 9.0, it could not read personal data imput into my FTM files. It
also stopped tracking at the end of Oct.2001 and I have been using the
program since that time.

FTM posted the following response to a question about the program.

"We have used a program called Aqueduct Profiler for a number of
versions when we are beta testing new versions. This program creates a
file called aqueduct.txt with the consent of our beta testers to help us
track and log any problems they encounter while testing Family Tree
Maker. After beta testing is completed, our programmers here at
Genealogy.com substitute an inactive version of the Aqueduct Profiler
program that no longer tracks or records information. The Aqueduct
Profiler program is tightly integrated into Family Tree Maker since it
is used to track testing of all areas of the program. This tight
integration prevents us >from easily removing all references to it. That
is why when we release a finished version we replace the active Aqueduct
Profiler program file (called aqueduct.dll) with an inactive one (of the

Jewish Graceland Cemetery, Chicago #general

Mimi Katz <GeveretK@...>
 

Over the years, I have compared notes with many Genners who have ancestors
buried at Jewish Graceland Cemetery in Chicago. You may be interested to
note that there was a story in the Metro section of the Chicago Tribune
today, February 11, about the re-development of adjoining land, and the
possible sale of the cemetery land and relocation of the graves. You can
find the story online at
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/nation/chi-0202110146feb11.st
ory (or do a search of the Chicago Tribune website for "Jewish Graceland").
The Hebrew Benevolent Society, which operates the cemetery, is looking for
descendants of those buried there in an attempt to preserve the cemetery and
its records.

Please contact Howard Eiseman, President of the Hebrew Benevolent Society,
at HBENSOC@... if you have ancestors buried at Jewish Graceland.

My great grandfather was also, so legend has it, a drummer boy, in the
Russian army, though as they conscripted Jewish boys >from 12, this may
have been just a later assumption as to how a kid so young was in the
army.
As Poland did not achieve independence until after World War I, it is
unlikely that your great uncle was in a Polish army, as distinct from
part of the Russian army. There had been Polish insurrectionary armies,
of course, and 500 Jews formed a unit fighting in Kosciuszko's army
against the Russians, though this was much earlier.
If your great uncle was serving in the Russian army in 1877 he might
have been sent into the Balkans, as Russia declared war on Turkey that
year and sent troops into Romania and Bulgaria.

GROSMAN Family - Brzeziny, Poland. #general

Stanley Grossman <stanley.grossman@...>
 

Dear Fellow Genners,

Due to the hard work being put into the translation of the Brzeziny Yizkor
Book by Fay Bussgang, I have been able to identify family, and recently
traced descendents, in Montevideo, Israel and Australia.I have recently
identified the following Grosman family members;

Abraham Jeszaja Grosman, a trustee of the Brzeziny Chevra Kadishe, and his
sons, Hersz, Icie, Jeremia and Emanuel - Ajzyk, the latter being the owner
of a large clothing factory in Brzeziny, and who emigrated with his family
to the US. His son, David, is described as being well known among our
landsleyt in the US.

Anyone with knowledge of these Grosmans or their descendents,is respectfully

Hi
I have some information about Y.D that is pretty unknown (doesn't appear in
Daat Kedoshim, Unbroken Chain nor in any other rabbinical genealogy
material). Y.D had a son Michael RABINOWITZ of Shereshew. This Michael had a
few children in Brest-Litovsk one of them Chaim Zalman RABINOWITZ. Chaim
Zalman had a son Zeev Wolf RABINOWITZ whowrote two books Shaarei Torat Eretz
Yisrael on the Jerusalem Talmud and Shaarei Torat Bavel on the Babylonian
Talmud. I have further information (like complete paternal ancestry 9 or 10
generations back). I'd be glad to supply further information.

Re: A Polish Drummer Boy #general

Charles Vitez <vitez@...>
 

Not only were there no suitable wars but also no Polish army as such in
1875.

Either the Pole was a Prussian (jews had to perform military service in
ordinary units) or a Russian (jews had to perform military service in
faraway cantonist formations - usually selected by ballot) or he was an
Austrian (the service was usually performed outside Poland but in Polish
drafts officered by Austrians/Czechs or another Empire nationality - not
Hungarian).

I am sorry if this is unhelpful.

Nice news! Argentina - Nachman EHRLICH #general

Carlos Glikson
 

Lehava Falkson mentioned
Nachman EHRLICH was a journalist and an actor in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
He was born around 1930. Nobody knows where he is, and it is said he
disappeared, maybe murdered.
Well, I am very glad to tell Lehava - and all - that Nachman ERLICH was very
happy to be alive and well when we spoke in the phone, 15 minutes ago!
Norman / Naum / Nachman will be also very happy to learn more about Lehava
and her search.

Norman ERLICH is a well known actor and humorist in Buenos Aires. He has
acted here and abroad and in different languages, including Hebrew and
Yiddisch.

I only knew about Norman Erlich, not Nachman. But the initial N checked - no
guarantee, but a possible clue. And the approximate birth year checked
too...

He is unlisted in the white pages, but I could reach his phone anyway.
Nachman told me he kept his artistic name Norman, the name I knew, when he
resumed acting in Argentina after some time acting in the US. And the other
family name Lehava mentioned, KUPERSTOCK, also checks with his family. He
was nicely surprised by the search, and very glad he could deny his
dissappearance and eventual murder!

Norman has a web page referred to his acting career - he was a journalist in
his early years, too. The URL is
www.normanerlich.com
and includes pictures and his short biography in Spanish.

Nachman has authorized me to share his contact info with Lehava, which I
will do in a separate mail, and looks forward to her news.

Best wishes!
