Important RE: Payee on Checks, Dues, Contributions #lithuania

Eden Joachim <esjoachim@...>
 

If you make your dues payments or contributions by check, please make the
check payable to LitvakSIG.

Checks made payable to any other name may have to be returned for correction
if the bank does not accept them for deposit.

Dues payments and contributions made using our secure online service will
help avoid this problem and speed up receipt and processing of your
contributions.

If your membership in LitvakSIG or your access to a District Research
Group's data expires on December 31 of this year, please consider making
your renewal payment or re-qualifying contribution soon to avoid the end of
the year rush, holidays and vacations. Actual people, all volunteers,
handle the manual tasks in order to process your contributions and provide
access to the relevant Shutterfly website(s). This takes time, so please
allow at least a few days and up to a week before sending inquiries.

District Coordinators have lists of those whose access expires on December
31. The Membership Chair has the list of those whose dues expire on December
31. Please contact them before contacting me to verify your status.

A receipt is sent by email for each contribution made to LitvakSIG. Please
make sure you provide a valid email address with your contribution in order
to receive a receipt suitable for tax purposes. Make sure you allow email
from esjoachim@optonline.net or the receipt will not reach you.
Thanks,
Eden Joachim
Treasurer and President

Re: Dover, England Knighthood? #general

Paul Silverstone
 

I don't believe there has been an answer to this question. The number
of Jews who were knighted in the 19th century is about 30. Not knowing
his surname makes it very difficult, but those on the list are quite
eminent, being judges or lawyers, London aldermen, or wealthy men.
Also, about 25 were knighted between 1900 and 1919.
If one of these lived in Dover, he might be the one. It is also
possible that this person received a lesser honor of one of the orders
of knighthood that would not confer the title "Sir."
Unless this uncle had some connection with government, banking, etc. in
addition to his printing, I would guess his knighthood was either
a) a lesser decoration or award, or b) >from a foreign nation.
Paul Silverstone

It seems that my cousin's maternal grandfather, Harry M. HYMAN (born
October 15, 1886 in Marimpol, Lithuania. died January 18, 1957 in
Chicago, Illinois)was taught to be a printer by his (unnamed) uncle
who lived in Dover, England during the nineteenth century and was
knighted.

This uncle taught Harry, the son of Samuel HYMAN POTTERCHINSKY and
his wife, Makha, and Harry's brother the printing business, so when
Harry and his brother immigrated to the USA >from England through
Canada sometime between 1890 and 1904 they already had a skill and
capital to start their own printing business in Chicago. This
business was the Dearborn Press, located in downtown Chicago and
was in business >from around 1905 to 1960. The Dearborn Press
published the Sears Catalogue in the first part of the 20th century,
and Harry ran the business with his brother until the start of the
Depression, and then became the sole owner in the the early 1930s.

Apparently, Harry spoke five languages and lived in various countries
in Western Europe when we was a child. My cousin would like to find
out who Harry's uncle was and when and why he was knighted, and any
other early history of that family.

Need How to Include Fee Payment with International Request for UK Archived Military Personnel Record #general

Connie Malone
 

Hello,

How do I go about sending a check >from the United States for a 30 British
Sterling administration fee that I am instructed to include with a request
for my dad's military records >from the Army Personnel Center, Kentigem
House. Now deceased, Dad enlisted and served in the Army for the British
Commonwealth, 1932 - 1938.

If I include a bank check with U.S. dollars equal to 30 Sterling, it will
suffice? I am really stuck and don't know what to do. Pointing me in the
right direction or any advice would be sincerely appreciated.

The request form for next of kin that I am referring to is, "Request for
Information held on the Personnel Records of Deceased Service Personnel,"
located on the Ministry of Defense URL site:

http://www.mod.uk/DefenceInternet/ContactUs/ServiceRecordsEnquiries.htm

The request form and its website did not provide clear instruction for
international inquiries. U.S. Banks and financial institutions, I learned,
only wire funds now. Additionally, they require an accounting routing
number of some sort associated with the army personnel center. So I don't
think that will help me in this case. Nor do I think a personal check from
me will work, either. Or would it?

I researched JewishGen's Discussion Archives with no success >from my method.
I did inquire further with the veterans.help@spva.gsi.gov.uk, and the reply
I received was, "If you are applying >from overseas, please note the only
acceptable payment method is a bank cheque, banker's draft or a[n]
international money order for 30 Sterling, and made payable as detailed on
the Part 2 service-specific Search Document. Your bank should be able to
assist further."

Children of Rabbi Shmuel and Rechel LANDAU #rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

According to an unconfirmed family tradition we are supposedly
descendants of Reb' Chaim of Volozhin. This tradition states that my
gggreatgrandmother Sarah Hinde (m. SCHATZ) was orphaned at a young age
and that Reb' Itzaleh (Yitzchak) son of Reb' Chaim of Volozhin was her
unterfirer (escorted her to her canopy).

This story seems connected to Reb' Itzaleh's daughter and son-in-law
who died at a relatively young age. The published trees which I have
seen mention only two daughters of Shmuel and Rechel >from who neither
do I find a connection. The two were married to well known Rabbinical
figures and therefore there possibly could have been other
children-possibly my ancestress -who aren't listed in the trees.

Does anyone have a detailed list of Shmuel and Rechel's children that
I could see to possibly find a connection?

A ggreatuncle of mine, R' Chaim Dov KANTOR Z"L of Moshav Shfeya and
Zichron Yaakov near Haifa (in Israel) is also a descendant of this
ancestress.
