his brother).- In 70th. hi lived in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and also in Buenos
Aires.- In this time with a partner named ZILBERSTEIN (or similar) they
have in Manaus (Brazil)a industry to produce the ballpoint.- Mr. Lazlo
Biro also was the inventor of the gazlighter brand BIC.-

Biro came to England just before WW2. He tried to sell his invention to
Stephens Inks, who turned him down. He sold it eventually to Swan Pen Co.
The ballpoint pen did't work because the correct type of ink had not
at that time been invented. I had such a pen in about 1950 and it made a
terrible mess on the paper. The first patent for a ballpoint pen was taken
out in the UK in about 1899 by a Mr Smith. This did't work for
the same reason as Biro's

Translation from Polish/Russian needed #general

Barbara S Mannlein <bsmannlein@...>
 

Came across a copy of an obituary? notice among my great aunt's photos.

As best as I can make out it reads:

*B.P. Klara LICHTENSZTEJNOWNA
Z BIALEGOSTOKU
Corka SYMY Z MROZOWICZOW

po dlugich l ciezliech cierpieniach saznela w Bogu dnia 26 listopada
1929 r.w kwiecie wieku, przezywszy lat 19.

Wyprowadzenie drogich nam zwlok nastapj w czwartek dn 28 b. m. o godz.
1-ej po pol. z domu przedpogrzebowego przy cmen tan'zu zydowskjm, o czem
zawiadamiaja pozostali w gelebokim smutku
MATKA, BRAT I RODZINA*

Can someone translate this for me? I think I have figured out that Klara
was >from Bialystock, and was buried in the Jewish cemetery. But, that may
be wrong!

Spam addressed to JewishGen readers #general

Dick@...
 

We have become painfully aware that the for-profit business at
www.bpagency.com noted yesterday by Miriam Margolyes and Hilary Henkin has
been sending unsolicited e-mail to addresses of JewishGen readers and
contributors, advertising books for sale.

JewishGen does not make any information about its subscribers,
contributors, or anyone else available to any third party. This use of
addresses >from JewishGen is completely unauthorized and is contrary to the
explicit policy of JewishGen as stated in the JewishGen Discussion Group
Rules and Guidelines at <http://www.jewishgen.org/infofiles/rules.htm>.
JewishGen is taking steps to halt further unauthorized use of addresses by
this business, steps which may or may not ultimately be successful.

Unfortunately, since the JewishGen Discussion Group is mirrored to the
newsgroup soc.genealogy.jewish, posts to the Discussion Group are publicly
available outside JewishGen, and we cannot directly control the use that
is made of e-mail addresses of contributors to the Discussion Group. That
is the bad news.

The good news is that if you have received spam messages >from this
company, you can rest assured that your e-mail address is *all* the
information they know about you based on your interaction with JewishGen.
They do not have any information that could enable them to obtain money
from you or steal your identity.
Since some of you may react to this incident by taking extra care with the
use of your e-mail address when you post to the JewishGen Discussion
Group, I must emphasize another rule under which this forum operates, a
rule that reflects common courtesy.

Every post to the JewishGen Discussion Group must include a valid return e-
mail address. If you choose to disguise your address to prevent its
unauthorized use, you must include a clear, simple description of how
someone who wishes to reply to you may do so. This may be included in the
address itself -- for instance, I could use <Dick@...> as
my address -- or it may be a very brief description. But it must be
present. Posts >from invalid addresses with no proper means of reply are a
disservice to the readers of this group. If we become aware of the
persistent use of this unacceptable practice, we will be forced to block
mail >from the address in question.
