I also have a cousin who left Eretz Yisrael for Baron Hirshes colonies in
Argentina. I would be interested to see what you come up with.
He went to "Moises-ville". His name was Moishe BRAVERMAN / SONNYSON.

I was intrigued to learn about the first group of Jewish colonists
to arrive in Argentina. My great uncle emigrated to Argentina from
Kamenets Podolskiy, but I don't know if he went under the aegis of the
agricultural colonies. Is anyone aware of the existence of lists that
would indicate who settled in Jewish agricultural colonies in Argentina?

A JewishGen success story #general

Joyce Weaver <joyweave@...>
 

I want to share a success story related to using the Family Tree of the
Jewish People at the JewishGen site.

When I was growing up, my mother was in contact with cousins of hers in
Colorado. I had only a vague memory of their names, but found some
names on the backs of photos in her album that rang a bell. Among them
were several pictures of children identified as Homer Goodman and
Lorraine Nathenson. The names Ceil and Rose showed up as adults in this
same group, but without surnames.

I searched the Family Tree and a Lorraine Nathanson popped up with her
husband's family name and a Colorado location. I contacted the
submitter, who said he got the information >from a member of the
husband's family and knew nothing more about Lorraine.

Fortunately, the name was unusual, so I went to switchboard.com and
found them listed. I wrote to Lorraine and sure enough-- she's my third
cousin and was able to fill in the fact that my VILNER/ WILNER
grandmother and hers were cousins. Ceil was her mother and Rose is
Homer's.

Several years ago, I found a first cousin on my father's side through
the JGFF.

Keep up the good work, folks! (And yes, I made a donation yesterday.
It's worth every penny!)

This reminds me of the story of Rabbi Quinn.
His family name was cohen, but somehow the officials arrived at the
spelling "Quinn"....

digitization #yizkorbooks

Joyce Field <jfield@...>
 

One additional comment. In its announcement of the digitization of
yizkor books, the NYBC stated only that it would digitize the
original yizkor books. There was no mention of translations of
yizkor books being digitized. I think that translators are being
unnecessarily concerned about an area that was never mentioned.

Warszawa civagogue registers vs civil registrations #warsaw #poland

éÒÉÎÁ á <genealog@...>
 

Dear listers!

I'm quite new to this list but for a few time I was performing a search
regarding my Warsawa-borned ncestors off-line. The web allowed me to
enjoyed >from a dozen of new entrances founded in wounderful on-line REIPP
database.

But I didn't find out here any answer to my improtant question say
theoretical question.

My ggparents were born in Warsawa in 1869 (my ggmother), 1872, 1875 -
ggmother's brother and sister. Gma Khana Tatelbom was got civil
registration in 1877. I've supposed together with her smaler brother and
sister.

So, does anybody has any idea is there somewhere (in Warsawa or elsewhere)
sinagogue registers for the said years or there is nothing like original
sinagogue registers and only civil registration for a few years and for a
few districts of warsawa (as it follows >from REIPP data) are hold?

Does anybody has any idea REIPP put in the web notices about all existing
civil regiters or not? I recognize that not all years mentioned in the web
are indexed. Perhaps, something for some years are hold in Warsawa or it
is hopeless and due to WWII we have such holes like between 1860 and
1880 (ab. 20 years)?

And againe I'm worry has anybody even seen NON-civil registration for Warsawa jews?

TIA,

I agree with Lancy.

This is a very good site. It has a lot information and an excellent data
base for Dutch Jews >from the Province of Drente.

I am searching for the following:

van der Sluis, Koopman, Cohen (oldenzaal), Drucker, van Witsen, Meiboom,
Frank, Conen, van Dam, Khan (Ruinen), Godfried.

Thanks to everyone for replying. Did not realize thatreplies are not
individualized on this list -so it is a collective thank you. Seems like the
consensus is at least six months and some people talked about 22-24 months.
Guess when I least expect it there coudl be a nice surprise in my mailbox.

Thanks to all.

I just received your message this AM and although I am leaving for work
wanted to tell you that I MET Julius Greenstone in Philadelphia when I was
about 6 years old. My father had taken me down there. I still have a book
about Chanukah which Julius Greenstone gave me. Many thanks for your response
which I will have to read more closely. Lastly, among the papers which my
father kept are many about or by Julius Greenstone. I will have to look
through them again and perhaps they may be helpful to you.

Lower East Side Weddings Paper is now finished #general

Blockeliz@...
 

I would like to offer my sincerest thanks to everyone who helped me with my
class paper titled "Lower East Side Weddings: Dressed for America." Many of
you sent me digital images of your descendents who were married on the
Lower East Side of New York around the turn of the century. I used a good
amount of the material you sent and could not have written the paper
without it. Many of you expressed interest in reading the final work. The
paper is eventually going to be online along with the others >from my
graduate class in American Studies at Columbia University. I'm not sure
how many images will be available for viewing (there are about 25 in
mine). In the meantime, if you'd like a copy via e-mail, just let me know:
blockeliz@aol.com. I'll attach several images, but not all, so as not to
get bogged down. Comments are welcome, as I plan on pursuing the topic
further. Please keep in mind that the paper was written for a semester-
ong class and is not in thesis-caliber condition at the moment. That's
the disclaimer.
Many thanks!!
