Art Linnick #yiddish

Stewart K. Bernstein <skbernst123@...>
 

I am looking for any information, with regard to Art Linnick, a Vaudevillian >from
the 1920/30's.

Art performed under the name of "Schlagenhauer" using a German accent while he
performed comedy songs and parodies as part of his performances.

Art appeared at Balaban & Katz and Lubliner Theaters when he performed in Chicago.

Art was represented by the William Morris Agency, and his Western Rep., was Allied
Theatrical Service. His Manager was Max Turner,Chicago.

Art recorded his parodies on Columbia Records, and later became an executive with
The Columbia Broadcasting System(radio only).

Any information would be appreciated..

A Message from JewishGen's Founder #yizkorbooks

Susan E. King <susan.king@...>
 

There are times when it's almost impossible to find the right words, and
perhaps this is one of those times.

Twenty-two years ago (seems like eons), I had an idea that grew up to be
JewishGen. Over the years you may have been one of those wonderful people
who offered help and together we nurtured that brainchild of mine. Together
we loved it and lived it.

It has been an extraordinary ride and looking back >from where we have come,
we can all take enormous pride in what we have established collectively. It
is a legacy that I know will follow me wherever I go for the rest of my
life. There is nothing better than knowing that you have fulfilled a dream
and to know you have made a difference in so many lives. I will cherish
these years forever.

I am ever so grateful for the true friendships I've developed along the way,
ever so grateful for the spirit of the volunteers who have worked with so
much dedication over these many years creating and building a real
grassroots effort that was at the core of my vision and so grateful that
JewishGen has been at the center of my life for so many years.

I can't thank everyone enough for lending their talents, their skills, their
hearts, their ideas and their time. Effective Monday, March 31st, I will no
longer be associated with JewishGen either as an employee or as a director.
Even though I may be moving forward and perhaps defining yet another life
purpose, please know that JewishGen and all of you who walked the walk with
me, nurturing my dream along with yours, will remain in my heart forever.

a1steve's rubbish removals <a1steve@...>
 

Dear All

I have been told that the WOOLFSON/WILSON and RUBINSTEIN(sp) families
came >from Babruysk, Minsk, were cousins and shared the same tutor.

I am searching for Harry WILSON (Hirsch/Hertz WOOLFSON) who was closely
connected to the RUBINSTEIN(sp)/RANDALL and MULLISH family who lived at
Rutland St and Jamaica St in the East End of London and then Gladesmore
Road,
South Tottenham, until the 1950's. Harry was Chairman/MD of Wilson Bros
Greeting Cards before Sam WILSON took over and subsequently Ellis BIRK who
had married (Dame)Alma WILSON, the daughter of Barnett WOOLFSON(1886-1932)
who set up the business possibly with his brother Abraham and Harry.

Please contact me privately on a1steve@bigpond.com if you feel there is a
connection.

This really depends on what you think of as a "relative", but you
certainly have a common female ancestor, though it might be very far
back in time. I don't have an exact number, but >from what others
have discussed, but we are talking about 1000 A.D. as a rough time
frame for most of these matches, and maybe several hundred years
more recent for high resolution matches. I urge others to correct me
if I am off.

The bottom line is that it is unlikely that you will find a "paper
trail" connecting you to these folks.

However, think of the following scenario:

What if a fairly recent ancestor, such as your mother's mother's
mother's mother had a sister. This sister then in turn has a
daughter, and she has a daughter, etc. The most recent generation
then gets an mtDNA test, and, voila! , she matches to you! For a
rare case such as this, you may be able to figure out the
relationship.

So, since you have paid for the test anyway, I suggest you contact
these folks, maybe just give a couple town names and general info on
the direct female line.

You never know what might happen!

Hi,

I would help translating a Meldezettel for my great grandmother's sister
Dora KOHN/SCHENK. It is VM11543. In can see it at

I'm trying to find out who she married but I don't think it is listed on the
Meldezettel.

Thank you,

Re: Looking for Information re Brussels death 1882. MEDEX / BLEWITT #france

Further to my email of earlier today I have since discovered that Matilda
married a Reginald James BLEWITT in London 2nd May 1821 so know her name was
BLEWITT when she died in 1882 (unless she remarried).

Jonathan Borchard - London


Good morning

I have just joined FrenchSig and was wondering if someone could possibly
help me.

I have discovered today that a relative died in Brussels June 09, 1882.

He maiden name was MEDEX - first name Matilda. I do not know if she was
married.

I know that she died at 71 Rue de la Limite, Brussels, and was aged 82.

I want to know if she had any family and was wondering if it is possible to
find out anything about her >from the information I have? Were there Censuses
possibly or a book of residents? A record of her death in the archives?

I think she may well have been born in London (aound 1800) as here siblings
were born there. Her father Moses Medex moved to London >from Eysden, nr
Maaasticht in the mid 1790's.

Can someone possibly help me locate her family in Brussels or anything about
her if unmarried?

Many thanks
