Re: Photo Taking prohibited at Evergreen Cemetery Tucson AZ #general

I wonder whether this policy would survive a court challenge. A
gravestone is a public declaration, seems to me.

This reinforces one of my basic policies: If you think you might not
like the answer to a policy question, don't ask it.

I wanted to start a project to document the headstones in the several
Jewish sections of Evergreen Cemetery in Tucson. I asked the cemetery
about their policy for photo taking and received the following reply:
The policy for taking photographs of headstones anywhere within the
cemetery is prohibited. In the past, families have expressed concern of
people taking photos of headstones due to privacy issues, therefore,
Evergreen had to create the policy.

Is this policy common in other cities around the U.S.?

Searching for a town 'Barnaoo' #general

Merle Kastner <merlek@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I am interested in finding a town that
is or used to be known as 'Barnaoo' (I don't know the spelling,
but this is how it was pronounced by someone who came
from Kishinev (1996).
However, it does not seem to be located in today's Moldova
and could actually be anywhere in the Pale of Settlement.

Can anyone help me find the correct name and location?
This would be most helpful for a friend who is desperately
trying to find her family with pre-Holocaust information.

Many thanks.

Note of Introduction #latvia

Victor Weisskopf
 

Hi Latvia-Siggers, I'm writing to introduce myself as a new member,
Vic WEISSKOPF, J-G Research 120906.

Have been doing family history research for nearly thirty years and
consider myself an advanced computer user.

Our link to Latvia is through Kurland: my great grandfather, William
LAZARUS and his wife Ellena LEVINSON MYAR LAZARUS arrived in Camden,
Arkansas (in the southeastern part of that state) in 1858 or '59, and
in time for the Federal Census of 1860. Several other LAZARUS
individuals took up residence there, too, as well as members of the
MYAR family who were related through blood and marriage.

William's first son was my grandfather Cyrus LAZARUS, who was born in
Goldingen, Kurland, and a toddler on arrival in the USA. After Ellena's
death, William LAZARUS remarried Hannah BRAUNSTEIN and had two more
children, Emma and Joseph William LAZARUS. Cyrus LAZARUS lived between
1869 and 1874 in the New Orleans Widows' & Orphans Home.

William LAZARUS died and was buried in St. Louis, MO in 1874, but
there's no indication as to why he was there or not brought back to
Arkansas.

I have established memorial pages for many of these individuals on
Findagrave(dot)com.

Would like to hear >from anyone regarding the above families, locations,
and Kurland in general.

Thanks for your e-mail.

On the Yahoo Groups website for R1a1a Ashkenazi Levites, we have
posted a memorandum that discusses the Khazarian hypothesis, along
with other hypotheses concerning the potential origin of R1a1a
Ashkenazi Levites.

Additional Y-DNA testing, including specialized SNP testing, of
various populations may help identify the populations that are most
closely related to R1a1a Ashkenazi Levites, which should shed light
upon the identity of the R1a1a Ashkenazi Levite progenitor who lived
about 1,300 years ago.

I don't believe that there is a Y-DNA haplogroup, other than R1a1a,
that is shared by a large proportion of Levites.

It is speculation that the one common ancestor for this group is

Many sons which had many sons and that is possibly why there is
Such a large Levite group separate >from the traditional Levite group.

The National Library (NLI) and the Central Archives (CAHJP) have merged #belarus

Rose Feldman <rosef@...>
 

This message just came out. I am sure it will of interest to many of you.

The National Library (NLI) and the Central Archives (CAHJP) have merged

The National Library of Israel (NLI) and the Central Archives for the
History of the Jewish People (CAHJP) are happy to announce a recent
merger between both institutions. For over 120 years, the National
Library of Israel has been collecting, preserving and making
accessible one of the world's most significant collections of Hebraica
and Judaica. The merger with the CAHJP will strengthen both
institutions and eventually provide improved accessibility to the
overwhelming collections which have been collected by the CAHJP. The
CAHJP was founded over 70 years ago in Jerusalem by a group of
historians and public figures who sought to preserve the historical
heritage of the Jewish people. Over the years the CAHJP managed to
collect the archives of thousands of communities, organizations,
families and Jewish personalities >from 64 countries. Its current
holdings consist of more than 60 million pages of original material,
spanning >from the 14th century up until the 20th century, with an
additional 18 million frames of microfilm.

Although the National Library of Israel (NLI) was founded in 1892,
only in 2007 was the National Library Act passed in the Knesset,
establishing its status as the National Library of the Jewish people
and the State of Israel. The mission of the National Library of Israel
(NLI) is to collect, preserve, cultivate and endow treasures of
knowledge, heritage and culture, with an emphasis on the State of
Israel and pre-state history, and the Jewish people. By incorporating
current and evolving technologies, at the nexus of Israel's national
and cultural center in Jerusalem, the NLI will forge the rich past
with the intellectual and cultural productivity of generations to
come. The NLI plays a transformative role, opening its physical and
virtual gates to people of all nations and religions, committed to
serving a broad and diversified population of users, both in Israel
and globally. As part of its renewal, the NLI has updated its
collection strategy, deciding to strengthen its archival collections
by merging with the most important archive for the history of the
Jewish people. The merging process will last several years, eventually
transferring the collections of the CAHJP to the National Library of
Israel's new building.

Researching GOLDBAUM from Yurevichi #belarus

Wendy Freebourne <art@...>
 

Hello

I am researching my paternal grandmother's family who were called GOLDBAUM
in all the UK records. She came to England with her parents and siblings
sometime after 1904, when the last sibling was born in Russia. They settled
in Mile End, London and my great grandfather was a presser in the garment
industry. In the 1911 census, my grandmother's place of birth is given as
Yurevichi, Russia. Her parents' census just said Russia.

I haven't found any GOLDBAUMs in the records for that area but lots of
Goldbergs in a list of most used names. However, I doubt this mistake would
have been made by the family.

I have noticed a place called Yurkevichi, near Odessa. As my paternal
grandfather came >from Odessa, I am wondering if my grandmother's family came
from there.
Can anyone throw any light on GOLDBAUM >from Yurevichi?

Many thanks.
