Need guidance: Searching The Forward Newspaper #general

Deborah Dworski
 

This non-Yiddish speaker is seeking guidance >from anyone who has
experience researching old editions of The Forward newspaper. I would
like to know about a periodic photographic supplement which supposedly
appeared in the paper, at least in 1921. I understand that the
photographic essays portrayed recent immigrants. How frequently was
the supplement published, and might the captions accompanying the
pictures have been written in English (hopefully)? My ultimate goal
is to locate the image of my 100 year-old ggggm's arrival at Ellis
Island. I know her date of arrival, so if the captions are in
English, I might have a chance...

Thank you in advance.

My husband and I will be visiting Kiev in September 2013 on a Grand Circle tour.
We are thinking of spending a few extra days on our own, taking in some local
Jewish tours or hiring a private Jewish guide, learning about Jewish Kiev and
researching our family roots in the area. After searching the web, I have been
unable to find any information on local Jewish tourism. Can you help or direct
me to a link? Shalom.

Mielnica and Uscie Biskupie #general

Brian Lehman <blrrcn@...>
 

Hello,
I would appreciate some advice interpreting the index's at JRI-Poland.
I am researching my Schuster family, who were living in Mielnica, in the
19th century.
After obtaining many of the vital records found in the index at JRI-Poland,
I was able to assemble a family tree going back 4 generations and have
connected "most" of the Schusters in Mielnica as part of my family.

My problem is, I have also found several Schuster families,who
registered their vital events in Mielnica but the events happened in
Uscie Biskupie,which is a smaller town 3 miles away >from Mielnica
(according to JGTF).I imagine that Uscie (being a small town)didn't have
a registers office so people had to go to larger Mielnica to register vital
events.

According to the records Moses Schuster was b@1790 and came >from Russia,
he had 1 son Abraham, B.1806
who died in Mielnica 1879, who married and had several children and
descendants living in Mielnica, all of which have been connected to my
family and verified through original records leading to my great great
grandmother and family.

The thing is, there are three other Schuster families and descendants in
Uscie Biskupie (3 miles away)and I am trying to connect these Uscie Schusters
to my Mielnica Schusters. The Uscie Schuster are are correct age to be Moses's
children and Abraham's siblings.
I have several records of the Uscie Schusters, filed in Mielnica,
representing vital events in Uscie, I am waiting for many more to arrive.
Thus far, there is no written connection between the Uscie and Mielnica
Schusters.

I speculate that may be Moses and son Abraham Schuster w/family
(mentioned above), lived and died in Mielnica, while 3 of Moses Schuster's
children went to live and have families in Uscie, again 3 miles away.
Eventually, I'll obtain enough original records to see if there is a
"written" connection, but they are older birth records before 1870,
and I need the grandfathers name listed and I haven't seen any >from that
period, that records grandparents.

So now I wonder, to what extent can an assumption of family connection
be made given the times,nature of the towns themselves,ties between the
towns, nearness of the two towns, etc. Were Uscie and Mielnica "intimate"
enough, given that families tended to stay together, for several siblings
of my ancestors family to "move" >from their parents in Mielnica to Uscie?

I would appreciate any thoughts or insights offered.
Thank you and Take Care,
Brian Lehman

Re: occupation of "capitaliste" #france

Alice Josephs
 

Maybe it is just someone with an accumulation of moveable property,
chattels and goods and money accumulating interest who was a merchant.

According to good old cooperative Wikipedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capitalism

" Capitalism is the system of raising, conserving and spending a set
monetary value in a specified market."

"The term capitalist as referring to an owner of capital (rather than
its meaning of someone adherent to the economic system) shows earlier
recorded use than the term capitalism, dating back to the mid-seventeenth
century.
Capitalist is derived >from capital, which evolved >from capitale, a late
Latin word based on proto-Indo-European caput, meaning "head" also the
origin of chattel and cattle in the sense of movable property . Capitale
emerged in the 12th to 13th centuries in the sense of referring to
funds, stock of merchandise, sum of money, or money carrying interest.
By 1283 it was used in the sense of the capital assets of a trading
firm.... Capitalism in its modern form is usually traced to the
Mercantilism of the 16th-18th Centuries... Among the major tenets
of mercantilist theory was bullionism, a doctrine stressing the
importance of accumulating precious metals. ..
European merchants, backed by state controls, subsidies, and monopolies,
made most of their profits >from the buying and selling of goods."

So it looks like it was definition of a merchant with moveable goods
which became a much more state definition (?), as in many respects the
capitalist was backed by the state (maybe because of the the growth of
military,church, national and local government stipends and pensions -
I don't know if Marx ever covered that?!). Europe was made up of a
patchwork of states with different currencies and colonial interests
and companies with state backing, so maybe it does mean cross
border as well?

With the different eras, pre and post Marx, of commerce and
industrialization and stock markets and limited liability and now post
industrialization (and state registration) the meaning must have changed
becoming far more politically loaded, especially with the advent of mass
education, universities and academic theorizing and now even economic
computer modelling!

This is just >from a quick skim read and I'm just pushing out first
thoughts,so maybe someone much more learned than me has the correct
definition! I assume there was never any glossary given by the local
registration office for these terms?!

SITE CITE - Baden-Wuerttemberg vital records on line including Generallandesarchiv Karlsruhe #germany

Ralph Baer
 

At some point this year (I am not sure when I last checked),
the birth, marriage, and death records >from roughly 1810 to 1870
which are at the Generallandesarchiv Karlsruhe became available on line at:

https://www2.landesarchiv-bw.de/ofs21/olf/struktur.php?bestand=12390

They cover the northern portion of Baden.
They use the same interface as those for southern Baden >from the
Staatsarchiv Freiburg at:

https://www2.landesarchiv-bw.de/ofs21/olf/struktur.php?bestand=10028

and the Reichssappenamt records for what is now Baden-Wuerttemberg at the
Hauptstaatsarchiv Stuttgart at:

https://www2.landesarchiv-bw.de/ofs21/olf/struktur.php?bestand=5632

The Stuttgart archives site has links to the Jewish records at all three
archives.
