Translation help #general

Bryan Douglas-Matthews <celticbard@...>
 

Hi,

I have, >from the Jewish pages translated all but the name of my wife's
Great-Great-Grandfather. On this piece of translation I am lost. Can anyone
advise me as to where or how I might find a way to translate this please.
One part of the problem is that it contains a character like the English
"X", and I am lost.

Thank you.
Bryan,

Re: London Obit #general

Can someone suggest a Jewish newspaper which might have carried an
obituary or death notice for a death that occurred in 1949 in London?
Barry Silver in Los Angeles

Almost certainly the Jewish Chronicle (if the family sent in a notice at
all). The J.C. was founded in 1841, and throughout most of its history has
been the "national" Anglo-Jewish weekly, so people >from other cities
besides London used to send their announcements there.

We used to refer affectionately to the b/m/d page as the "Hatches, Matches
and Dispatches." However the actual column is (or was) called "Social and
Personal" -- I remember that we used to joke that it was high time Social
got engaged to Personal......

If you can actually pinpoint the month as well as the year, it should be
easy to find someone who could look it up for you in some large university
library that has the JC on microfiche. Or maybe write to the JC directly
(sorry I don't know their e-mail address but I'm sure you can find them on
the web).

Lodz births 1878-1898 added to JRI-Poland database! #poland

Seflaum@...
 

I am very pleased to announce that indices to nearly 20,000 city of Lodz
births >from 1878 through 1898 have been added to the JRI-Poland database, as
part of the Lodz Jewish Records Indexing-Poland / Polish State Archives
Project (PSA). This project is the effort to obtain indices to the late 19th
century Jewish vital records of Lodz and 37 surrounding towns still held in
the Lodz Archives, but NOT microfilmed by the LDS (Mormons).

By going to this Internet page you may now search for data on your family
from Lodz: http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/jriplweb.htm
o City of Lodz Indices Now Available in the JRI-Poland Database

The city of Lodz indices now available in the JRI-Poland database are:
births, 1826-1898, marriages, 1826-1898, and deaths 1826-1877. Indices >from
1826-1877 were obtained under the leadership of Morris Wirth, Lodz Shtetl
CO-OP leader for JRI-Poland.

o Final Phase of the city of Lodz Project: Deaths 1878-1898

The final phase of the city of Lodz PSA project will be to index the death
records >from 1878 through 1898. The indexing of these death records will
begin shortly by the JRI-Poland team in Warsaw. The birth indices are now
available as a result of the participation of a number of Lodz researchers
and I would like to express my gratitude and that of many others for their
dedication. I hope that we can count on the same kind of participation of
many more Lodz researchers to complete the final phase of this initiative.

I would like to especially acknowledge the assistance of Morris Wirth, Lodz
JRI-Poland / PSA Inventory Coordinator, Joe Ross, Assistant Lodz Coordinator,
Michael Tobias, Sheila Salo and Stanley Diamond, Project Coordinator, JRI -
Poland.

If you have any questions about this project, please do not hesitate to
contact me.

RE: Rabbis named in Lodz article.
One of the rabbis named in this article "Rabbi Eliezer Leib TRAJTSMAN" was a
witness named on my father's birth certificate. Although my father was born in
1908, he was registered in 1914. The other witnesses included: Jakub Majer
TAJCHA (41 years old) and Berk Munesz MILGRON (40 year old), both residents of
Lodz.

Dear Ms. Flaum:
I don't know if he is listed in your personages of note in Lodz,

the feeding of the poor. In addition, my mother tells me that he was head

about 15 years ago, the Agudath Israel magazine, "Dos Yiddishe Vort", devoted
an entire (rather lengthy) issue to "Jewish Lodz Between the World Wars"? I

By the way,where is this place located? Is there some sort of "town
hall" that I could contact to find out more ? How would I go about finding
out if there was a synagogue in the area?
