Re: Update: Actually there were 4 Jewish Dailies in Kovno #lithuania

Mimi Pais <lantali@...>
 

I asked my father what daily Jewish newspapers existed
in Kovno when he was there as a student pre-World
War II. As of 1939 or so, he said that there were
actually 4 daily Jewish newspapers that he can recall.
They are (1) Yiddishe Shtime - by far the largest and
most popular. (2) Dos Word - The Word, a Socialist
Zionist paper (3) Volksblatt - Jewish, Leftist,
anti-Zionist and (4) the afternoon edition of Yiddishe
Shtime which was called Hayntike Nyes - Today's News.

He also recalls a revisionist newspaper but thinks
that it came out once a week.
I hope this helps someone.

re Seeking family of London Blitz bomb victim Nat JACOBS #general

A J <genealicej@...>
 

I have just learnt additional information about Anita JACOBS,
daughter of Nat and Mary JACOBS. Nat was a victim of the first
Blitz bombing raid on September 7th 1940. After the War, his
daughter Anita was married to the manager of Barclays Bank in
Gants Hill, Ilford. Does this ring a bell with anyone?

Let me add to Michael's valid conclusion that English-language
terms such as "first cousin twice removed" are imprecise because
they do not indicate which of the two cousins is two generations
older than the other. It would be like using the same word for
nephew and uncle.

Researching FRANKEL #scandinavia

SUSAN POPIOL <BornFreeAgain@...>
 

My great grandmother was named Khase FRANKEL. She was born
approximately 1865 in Minsk, Pinsk or Stolin (at least we think she
was). We know nothing else about her except that she married my great
grandfather, Eliahu Chaim SZWEC (also spelled SCHWETZ or SHVETS) and
bore 3 sons: YISRAEL MOISCHE (my grandfather), DOVID MENDEL and ELYA
CHAIM. I am most interested in any information you might have about the
FRANKEL family of Khase FRANKEL.

I understand that a number of FRANKEL's migrated to Denmark and that a
book was published about the FRANKEL lineage which I am interested in
purchasing. I have been unable to locate who offers this book for sale
and would appreciate any information on how to do so..

Thank you.

new Bielsk Podlaski ShtetLinks site #poland

Andrew Blumberg <ablumberg@...>
 

Hello,

A new ShtetLinks page has been added to JewishGen for
the Polish town of Bielsk Podlaski. It is hoped this
site will help you learn more about your ancestral

shtetl, how your ancestors lived and perhaps help you
discover names of ancestors or relatives. Some
original source materials listing names of people from
Bielsk Podlaski are contained in the site. The site
also contains links to external resources pertaining
to Bielsk Podlaski and Jewish life in Poland.

The site will be updated periodically and I have
already been in touch with people who are going to
contribute photos and maps of Bielsk Podlaski as well
as additional material >from the Bielsk Podlaski
landsmanshaft. If you would like to receive an email
when new materials are added to the site please let me
know.

Please email me if you have any photos, documents,
stories or materials that you would like to share with
other researchers through this site. I look forward to
hearing >from you.

Thanks to Brad Gordon for providing the spark to get
this project going!

The link for the site is

Polish Breweries #poland

Gabriela K <gabriela_k25@...>
 

Dear All,

I too are interested in finding out some information regarding Polish
Breweries. It was believed that my Grandmother's father was in the Brewing
Industry- possibly in the farming of raw materials- this is all very vague
though. Also, they lived in Wielkie Ozcy, Poland/Galicia, which maybe near
Ochinsky. Her name was Rachel WOLFUS, her father Ketcher WOLFUS and mother
Emily.

Is there any way of finding out the names of breweries in the region and
possibly the employers and employees? Any information regarding this topic
or the WOLFUS family would be of great interest to me and would appreciate
if you could further email me at
