Kardonsky #usa

YaleZuss@...
 

In the wake of the "Roots" genealogy craze, my grandfather told me his mother, Batya Kardonsky, had at least nine siblings.  My family has been in touch with the descendants of four them since leaving Ukraine, vicinity of Starykostyantinyv/Starokonstantinov, a century ago.  I am writing to see whether this message board can help me connect with the other five trunks:
 
I believe I recently identified the descendants of a fifth sibling, Pearl, who married Bernard Blumberg and went to Philadelphia.

Number 6, Uncle Morris, also went to Philadelphia, a seventh, Shima, went to Argentina, Uncle Reuben came to America, and Grandpa had no information at all on number nine, Mochta, which may mean Mordechai.  Grandpa thought  it possible that there were others.
 
Although I believe they are from (at least?) two wives (Pearl is about 30 years younger than my great-grandmother) their common father was David.
 
If there is anyone out there who is part of this clan, please contact me directly.

I agree with Barbara Mannlein. It is very difficult to read the digests without knowing what any given post in answering.

The most likely answer is that there have been no posts to the SIG

Re: Question

Sarah L Meyer
 

Why am I getting multiple messages per day rather than just one when I requested digest form?  And why do I need a separate login from my Jewishgen researcher number login?
I also would like a translate button if people post in multiple languages.  I tried to copy and paste the Hebrew, but could not get all the Hebrew selected without having the header selected also.

Can anyone tell me how to find relatives in Hungary? I am trying to find either Taub's or Bihari.
Thank you.

I would amend all of the above to say: “What have you done? You have changed something that was really good and informative to something that is totally a mess. I subscribed to this for years and found it very helpful; it is totally useless now. Go back to the original format. Change is not always good.”


Converso children

ArnoldChamove@...
 

(1) If a woman is forced to convert from being Jewish [e.g., "converso" ] either (a) before or (b) after she has had children), can her children claim to be Jewish according to rabbinic interpretation?

(2) if a woman chooses to convert to Judaism either (a) before or (b) after she has children, can her children claim to be Jewish?


Re: JewishGen.org Discussion Group - Digest #1

I would amend that to suggest that if the writer is replying to a digest post, they change the subject of the email appropriately to reference the specific post, not the digest in general.

(I have left the subject of this email unchanged as an example.)

I find that reading what are clearly responses very confusing since the email being responded to is not included.

Correction: Article on Dedication of the Memorial to the Yurburg, Lithuania Jewish Community #yizkorbooks

Joel Alpert
 

The dedication of the Synagogue Square Memorial was held on July 19,
2019. This memorial is to honor the former Jewish community of
Yurburg. It was initiated by the the town’s Christian mayor,
Skirmantas Mockevicius. He found David Zundelovitch, a renowned
Lithuanian-Israeli sculptor with family roots in the town, who along
with his daughter Anna and son Greg, executed the memorial on a site
near where the famous old wooden Yurburg Synagogue, built in the
1790s, once stood. The partners of this project include the Jurbarkas
regional municipality, CAN New Artists Collegium, the Litvak community
of Lithuania, the Friends of the Yurburg Jewish Cemetery and also many
private people.

This is a unique memorial in that it was initiated by a Lithuanian!
It is the first of its kind.

I don't know how late they go (probably depends on the court), but Family Search has US naturalization records from various courts as part of their unindexed collections. I believe you need the certificate number (you can double check the naturalization index records) and the court name/district. I found one from 1951 issued in the Eastern District of New York. 

Also, according to the Social Security website, noncitizens can have Social Security numbers.

A very touching story.  Seeing that you have some association with Yizkor books might be a subscriber to the sub-group

That being the case you may have seen my recent post titled  

A Book of Memory of the Jewish Community of Pinczow, Poland

I am looking for an English translation of the account on pages 210-212 in relation to
The Beitar and the Revisionist movements in Pinczow by Yechiel Kavshenyevski

Do you think that you may be able to assist me with that.

Thanks
