That would indicate that possibly Israel SHAMES (died 1929 in Chicago)

You could also order their death certificates >from Cook County and learn

Good luck.

He was caught in the crossfire during one of Al Capone's shoot-outs in
Chicago or he was told by gang members to stop walking on the side-walk -
didn't understand the language, continued walking and was shot
Either way he died in the incident

Hello Everyone,

I'm in need of some help with these files >from the PSA. As of late
I've been learning how to translate files >from Polish.
I have learned quite a bit so far but have a few questions and
complications with these files.

All 5 records are in Polish and >from either Brok or Zareby Koscielne.

First of all in general I'd like a confirmation on dates of events.

Thank you in advance for any help you might be able to offer.

1)http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=19784

This death certificate for Mendel Jankielowicz Kryzstal. What I
specifically would like to know is:

a)what is the profession listed after his name.

b)What are the relationships of the two people listed after
his name and what is the name of his wife.

2)http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=19773

This is a Death Record for Herszk Krysztal. I am confused about
the names following his in the document.

a)I would like to know the word directly after his name.
Looks like Mty.... maybe a profession?
b)I would also like to know the relation of Mordko Judkowicz
and wife Pesi Krysztal. It says son, but then why is he not called
Mordko Herszkowicz? And is Herszk's wife Dyne Leje daughter of Baruch?

3)http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=19762 pg.1
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=19761 pg.2

This is a Marriage Record for Surenames Krysztal and Glejber. This
record just confuses me. Any help would be great. Names, Dates..

4)http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=19760

I would like a translation giving me names and dates within this file.

Thank you all.

Were Jews in Latvia immune to appendicitis? #latvia

Marion Werle <werle@...>
 

It is a huge leap to assume that because the modern term "appendicitis" was
not used in a death record, that nobody died >from it. Medical terminology
has changed significantly >from a century ago, not to mention that medical
care was primitive by comparison to today and that by the time a person died
from appendicitis, peritonitis would have set in and the death >from symptoms
of advanced sepsis might not be recognized as originating >from the appendix.
There is no basis whatsoever to assume that there is any genetic immunity
just because a term other than "appendicitis" may have been used in the
death record.

Dear Judy

You don't give details of the significant year when your maternal aunt was
diagnosed with appendicitis but the absence of this diagnosis >from Latvian
Jewish death records may be because the diagnosis of this condition was
first made in 1886 by Professor Reginald Heber Fitz who held the Chair in
Pathological Anatomy at Harvard University. One of the first patients to be
successfully operated on for appendicitis was King Edward VII in 1902
shortly before his betrothal to Princess Alexandra.

Coins of Galicia #poland

Brian Lehman <blrrcn@...>
 

Hello all,
With the help of several members here who replied to my original post,
offering very helpful personal information as well as online reference
sites.....Thank You!

While I am no authority, it appears that the population in Galicia
mostly used Austrian coinage. (And I remember in "Fiddler on the Roof",
they mentioned Russian Kopeks! Guess Anitefka was in the Russian part
of Galicia).

I have been asked by several members if I found any information and I
think the best example I can give is a link to the online group where I
usually buy my coins.
http://search2.vcoins.com/results.aspx?suid=8774113c-4d51-4e6b-bf6e-138dd4f7415f

I hope I am not violating any policy here by posting the above link, the
page is the search results for "Austria" and represents many independent
shops offering Austrian coins.

Guess I should say that I am not endorsing or associated with any of
them other than just purchasing several....ya, the Galician coins!
At the risk of loosing a good coin source, I hope this helps others get
an idea of the coins that were in our ancestors hands.

Thanks and Take Care,
Brian Lehman

Pamela Weisberger
 

During the IAJGS conference week, the Embassy of the Republic of
Poland is offering a special talk by Dr. Julian Bussgang introducing
his new translation of the book, "Zyd Polski - Zolnierz Polski
(1939-1945)" - Polish Jew - Polish Soldier. This talk is open to the
public and free of charge, but reservations are necessary.

Date: Wednesday, August 17 - 7:00PM - 9:00PM

The Embassy of the Republic of Poland
2640 16th Street NW
Washington, DC 20009

The booklet "Zyd Polski - Zolnierz Polski (1939-1945)," Polish Jew -
Polish Soldier was first published in 1945 under the direction of
Rabbi Nathan R=FCbner, Jewish chaplain of the 2nd Corps of the Polish
Army in Italy. The objective of the booklet was to memorialize the
valor and brave deeds of Jewish soldiers who fought during World War
II in the Underground, partisan units and in the Polish Army, both
inside Poland and abroad. It also honors those who battled in the 1943
Warsaw Ghetto Uprising and the 1944 Warsaw Uprising, in which Jewish
volunteers joined Polish insurgents. The new booklet, published in
2010 by the Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw, contains both the
original Polish text and its English translation by Dr. Julian
Bussgang.

You must RSVP to attend: washington.rsvp@msz.gov.pl or telephone
202-234-3800 ext. 2165. Refer to the "Julian Bussgang Event" when you

Dr. Julian Bussgang was born in 1925 in Lw=F3w, Poland, now Lviv,
Ukraine. In mid-September 1939 he fled with his parents and sister to
Romania and then to Palestine. After finishing a Polish refugee high
school in Tel Aviv, he joined the Polish 2nd Corps and fought in the
Italian campaign, including the Battle of Monte Cassino. He came to
the United States in 1949.
Bussgang and his wife, Fay, have translated two volumes of wartime
accounts of Jewish child survivors of the Holocaust still living in
Poland, The Last Eyewitnesses: Children of the Holocaust Speak
(Northwestern University Press 1998 & 2005).
