Call for nominations #latvia

martha <martha@...>
 

Shalom chaverim!

At the Jewish Genealogy Conference in Jerusalem in July, we will hold
elections of officers for the next year. The Latvia SIG invites
nominations for the positions of Treasurer and President for the
coming year. Please provide full names, background and email address
of the persons you wish to nominate. You can also nominate yourself.
What we need are people who will be active and innovative.

We also urgently need a group of people to volunteer who can work on
Bylaws for the SIG. It has come to my attention that we do not have
any! Please get in touch with me or with Mike Getz <mgetz@erols.com>
as soon as you possibly can, because we should vote on the Bylaws at
our annual meeting in Jerusalem!

And speaking of Jerusalem, you will be happy to learn that the SIG
has been honoured by Professor Dov Levin's accepting our invitation
to join us for the SIG luncheon. Professor Levin, in case you have
forgotten, is the editor of the Pinkas Hakehillot Latvia v'Estonia,
published by Yad Vashem. He is looking forward to sharing his
knowledge with you and having you share your experiences with him.

We only have 40 days before the conference!

Re: request AND REPLYS #general

Dear Group and Moderators;

I think what Jackie is referring to, as I have seen this myself, is if it
the kind of question with a "reply privately", then the moderator never sees
the reply, only the person who posted the original question.
Even if we have been working on genealogy for many years, it is hard to be
an expert in the whole thing, if you are doing this only part time,
occasionally, and things do change all the time - both technology and what
is or is not available. It is the "private" replies where some people can
get rather nasty, and the moderators have no control over.

On the other hand, most Genner have gone out of their way to be more then
helpful. I guess that with a group of this size, there will just be a few
bad apples.

Hello,

In a death record >from Krakow, 1904, the reason of death is stated as
"dusznia piersiowa". Can anyone help with translating this medical term?
Is it "angina pectoris", is it a kind of infection of the loungs?
Thank you!
It sounds like Asthma.

several books which discuss this family: one by Emil

Yid. translation of one word #general

I'd appreciate the translation of the Yiddish appellation
"zhulik". I belive it to have been the nickname

pre marital agreements #poland

It is interesting that Ruth asks about obtaining pre-marital agreements
from Warszawa, since just this week, I received in the mail a copy of a
pre-marital agreement for my family >from Warszawa. The pre-marital
agreement was signed by the Kancelaria Aleksandra Dziewulski.

There was a notary by the name of Kancelaria Antoni Kochanowski whose
files are in the Archiwum Pa=F1stwowe m.st. Warszawy it is Fond : 710.
Their address is

Archiwum Panstwowe m.st. Warszawy
ul. Krzywe Kolo 7
00-270 Warszawa

He was a notary >from 1869 - 1876.

BTW, I was able to find this information by searching the Sezam database
on the Polish State Archives website.

<Does anyone know if premarital agreements >from 1872 could have survived
