Warren Blatt <wblatt@...>
 

Dear Friends,

On June 2, we will be honoring Karen Franklin, Gary Mokotoff, and
Lance Ackerfeld, for their leadership and dedication to JewishGen.

After working with each of these individuals for years, it gives
me great pleasure to see that they will get just a small measure
of the recognition they deserve.

Please join me in honoring them and participate in JewishGen's
Spring Brunch, which be held in New York on June 2. We will
also publish a tribute journal, and I invite you to place an ad.

You can register for the brunch and/or place an ad by calling
646-437-4326, or by visiting http://www.JewishGen.org/Event

Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Entertainment Industry Magazine Archive #yiddish

Bob Kosovsky
 

The New York Public Library is happy to obtain a new electronic database,
"Entertainment Industry Magazine Archive." These contain scans (in color, >from
what I've seen) of many periodicals significant to the entertainment industry.
As a coworker of mine expressed, "it would be worth it to get it just for its
holdings of Variety." Nothing specifically Yiddish, but then there was plenty
of crossover and I'm sure Yiddish actors would appear in Variety or some of the
other earlier periodicals.

This is a ProQuest database, so there are undoubtly other (large) institutions
that have also purchased a license to use this. My initial reaction is that
it's amazing. Here's what it contains:

American Film (Archive: 1975-1992)
Back Stage (Archive: 1960-2000)
The Beat (Archive: 1988-2000)

Hello,

I am planning to go to Ukraine next July, to Kiev and Zhitomyr.
- Does anyone have useful information about people we could get in touch
with, for help in the archives, cemeteries etc. ?
My great grand-parents lived in Kiev between 1918 and 1926 or 28.
My husband's father was born in Zhytomir.

- Is there anything I can do for the interest group : photos... ?
I can read Russian, although not very fluently.

MELLER #southafrica

Joan Kramer
 

Hello,

I am looking for the descendants of Solomon MELLER, born 1906 in
Johannesburg, SAR, and his sister, Sophie MELLER, born 1910 in
Johannesburg, SAR. Their parents were Daniel MELER/MELLER and Dora
RUBENSTEIN MELLER.

Daniel emigrated to SAR >from Lithuania in about 1897 when he was about
25 years old. I believe he married Dora in South Africa. He died at age
46 and is buried at Braamfontein Cemetery in JHB. I don't know what
became of Dora, Solomon/Solly and Sophie.

I would appreciate any information sent to me directly.

Many thanks.

I would like to find descendants of Saul Gefen/Geffen of Kupiskis and his son
Rabbi Yakov Gefen/Geffen who was married to the daughter of Rabbi Hayim-Moshe
Weitz of Kupiskis. There is a possibility that the family left Kupiskis,
Lithuania, and went either to South Africa or America.

Thanks for any assistance.
