This should be of interest to everyone who has received spam mail recently
advertising Jewish books.

[JewishGen has advised us that] "the publishing house www.bpagency.com has
been spamming all our lists as well as all subscribers who have posted
messages to the private lists. They may well have figured out that all lists
have archived messages and they capture addresses that way.

Neither JewishGen, your SIG, Research Group, nor mailing list has provided
addresses to this company. They are capturing them >from archived messages.
For those who are so inclined, you can inform these spammers that
unsolicited mail will not result in sales, only annoyed people."

I hope that this answers the concerns that were expressed by some of you.

Hi.

My ancestor Aaron Leib POZHEZHINSKY was supposed to have been a
Talmid Chacham/Yeshiva Bucher in Brisk during the 1860's (died at
age 20 in 1870 while studying). Is there a source for Yeshiva's
and their students in the area of Brisk at this period?

Thanks,
Philip Rosinsky

Hello,

I have a copy of a letter that appears to be written in 1925 >from someone

It is written in very nice handwriting and it is a good copy. I am
looking for someone who would be willing and able to do a Yiddish to
English translation for me. If anyone is interested please contact me to
discuss details.

Missing people from Ellis Island manifest #general

Rich Lowenthal <richlowenthal@...>
 

I'm trying to track down the immigration records for my great-grandfather's
family. Prior to entering this country his name was Isaac LEVITAN; he
traveled here with his children Dora, Eva, Jette, and Rebecca. I've finally
managed to find them through the Hamburg database; they traveled on the
Brasilia, leaving Hamburg 30 August 1899. The Brasilia arrived in NY on 13
September 1899; I've found the manifest pages through the Morse website,
but can't find my relatives on the list. There are only three manifest
pages available online for the Brasilia (just over 60 passengers) which
seems unusually short. Is it likely that the microfilm does not include all
the manifest pages? (The index on the microfilm says there are only three
pages, so it doesn't seem to be a matter of missing pages >from the
website.) Is it possible the Hamburg site is wrong, and that they took
another boat? Did they slip overboard and swim ashore? Does anyone have any
suggestion of what to do?

Also, does anyone know whether the LDS microfilm of the Hamburg records is
likely to have any more information than what is available through the
Hamburg website? I was hoping to find the place of birth for them, but that
information is absent >from the abstract.

Thanks for your help.

Dear Genners,

I am looking for the correct spelling of the surname of Mischa BOHR or BOER

the 1950s. He had a son Leo who married Dorothy BUSSEL. Leo was a
photographer who died at a young age. Any information about this family
will be appreciated.
