Roberta, I would recommend that you read the book The Jewish Community in
Rochester: 1843-1925 by Stuart E. Rosenberg. He has a good background on
the Vad Hakolel Congregation and on what life was like in Rochester then.
The book is >from 1954, but I am sure you can get it >from a library.

Dear Genners;
I want to thank all those who agreed or disagreed with me regarding
receiving answers >from the JGFF listers. But, at this time, as per the
moderator, we have thoroughly exhausted the subject and it is time to move
on to something more interesting. I will continue to plod on whether I am
disappointed or not as that is what we are all about. Most of the family
probably thinks I am a crazy old lady, but it's not only challenging for
the past 18 years, but it keeps me out of real trouble and lets me think I
have something to leave behind for my children & grandchildren to think
about.

R' Yaakov Yitzhak - HaYehudi HaKadosh #rabbinic

MKorbman@...
 

Hello,

I am new to this group and I'm hoping someone can help me with my
search. I recently learned that my family has a connection with
Rabbi Yaakov Yitzhak Rabinovich, also known as Ha Yehudi Ha Kadosh.
I did find some information on him at the JudaicaPlus website. Where
could I find more information on him and his lineage?

Thank you.

New ShtetLinks Manager #poland #lodz

Joyce Field
 

I am pleased to announce Fred Apel as the new ShtetLinks Project
Manager. Fred will take on a tough role, stepping into the shoes of
Chuck Weinstein, who, as the Project Manager for over four years, has
made ShtetLinks into a major JewishGen project. We are sad to see
Chuck step down but it is understandable that he needs to re- focus
his energies at this particular time in his life. Chuck has
graciously agreed to help acclimate Fred in his new role and for the
time being will continue to moderate the ShtetLinks mail list. I
will certainly miss working with Chuck.

Fred brings to his new position a wealth of experience in Jewish
genealogical activities. He is a Life Member and Vice President of
JGS Michigan and an advisor for the Society's award winning
newsletter,"Generations," and their website. He also produced a
local cable television show about genealogy and JGSMI and has
compiled a book entitled "Beginner's Workshop in Print" that is
presented to all new members of JGSMI. In addition, as a JewishGen
volunteer, he has helped with several necrologies and has done other
work on the Yizkor Book project.

We look forward to his bringing his talents and energies to
ShtetLinks and helping that project develop to its fullest potential.

Success at the Warsaw Cemetery #warsaw #poland

mjssds@...
 

Boleslaw Szenicer found and took photos of a family ancestral plot at the
Warsaw cemetery. There is at least one more that we think is there but no
record so far. There are three Spermans, hebraically sounds like Spearman
including a relative who is a Chassidic rabbi. The Israeli tranalator tells me
that he was a Chasid, but perhaps the word is used to mean righteous. Is there
any way to tell >from the inscription?
If anyone is considering having their ancestral graves photographed by
Boleslaw I would highly recommend it, noyt only for the geneological data but
if only to know the monuments are still upright.

Freedman Family Adelphi Street Glasgow #warsaw #poland

danielle freedman <daniellefreedman640@...>
 

Dear List,
After finding my g grandfather MORRIS FREEDMAN's 1908 UK natralisation
record - he was born in 1874 WARSAW he is the son of JACOB & JANE FREEDMAN.
I read with avid interest that prior to 1908 he was a peddler/baker, often
traveling to GLASGOW.
Low and behold he and wife SARAH and 2 small children turned up on the
Scottish 1901 Census. ( I would like to thank the people who informed the
group that the census was online - otherwise i would not have thought to
look).
MORRIS & his wife are listed under the GORBALS area, along with 90 or so
other FREEDMAN families. Upon closer inspection many of the names are that
of his possible 10 siblings, as he later moved to Manchester and called his
children the same names.
I am looking for Glasgow Freedman decendants of:
HYMAN
JANE
SOLOMON
DORA
DAVID
CHARLES
ABE/ABRAHAM
NELLIE/NANCY
ESTER
JOSEPH

who would have all be aged between 19 - 38 in and around the time the 1901
scottish census was written.

I am also aware that some of the above names may have lived a few years in
Glasgow before making the final crossing to to the USA to complete thier
jouney. Does this ring any bells.
