Help in Connecticut Needed #general

Ricki L. Zunk <rickiz@...>
 

Hi:

I don't know my way around the State of Connecticut, so I'm posting this
inquiry every place I believe I might find someone who can help me out.

I am looking for any and all RENDELSTEIN family members, anywhere I can
find them. A short time ago, I came across an obituary for Dorothy
Rendelstein GOTTFRIED. According the a copy of her obituary Dorothy
died at the age of 82 on Monday, July 11, 1994, in Bridgeport, CT. She
was the widow of Jack Gottfried. She was born in Budapest, Hungary.
Her parents were Samuel RENDELSTEIN and Fanny Cohen RENDELSTEIN. She
was survived by her daughter and son-in-law (Susan and Jerry Davis), and
her grandsons (Jeffrey and Brian Davis), and her nephews (Dr. Paul
GOTTFRIED and Dr. Dennis GOTTFRIED). She was buried at Ahavath Achim
Cemetery in Fairfield, CT.

I wrote to the Archivist at Congregation Ahavath Achim, in Fairfield, in
the hope that they might be able to give me additional information about
Dorothy, as she was supposedly a congregation member for more than 50
years. I explained all that I knew and all that I was hoping to learn.
I am NOT trying to pry into the lives of Mrs. Gottfried's surviving
family. I explained that I just wanted information that I could add to
my database of the RENDELSTEIN family, and that I was more than willing
to share the information I had with Mrs. Davis and her children. This
letter was sent in mid-August 1998. I have yet to hear anything from
anyone.

Does anyone reading this post have any information about this family?
If so, please respond directly to me, PRIVATELY, at
<rickiz@mindspring.com>, as I am not presently subscribed to any CT
list, and would not read anything that was not directly sent to me.

TIA,
(Mrs.) Ricki Lynn Randall Zunk

Dues & the treasurer's e-mail address #lithuania

Peggy Freedman <peggyf@...>
 

Whoops! My e-mail address was listed incorrectly in the Litvak SIG Digest!

If you have questions for the treasurer, please contact me at
peggyf@mindspring.com
The "f" after peggy is important--someone else gets all the plain peggy
mail, and I never see it!

Here are some answers to the most commonly asked questions--
*We are recognized by the IRS as a tax deductible organization. If you
have questions about this, please contact the Finance Committee Chairman,
Elliott Lipschultz at Adoniram@aol.com
*We will snail mail receipts for US tax year 1998 in January 1999.
*We have been able to deposit checks in American dollars, Canadian dollars,
and British pounds. If you only have Israeli shekls, please send
traveler's checks or ask a friend to write a check for you in American
dollars.
*We collect money in a variety of ways--
1) Dues to support the general projects of the SIG (ie bringing speakers to
seminars, printing a non-electronic newsletter which has not gone out yet,
general overhead) A voluntary, minimum contribution of $18 (chai) would be
appreciated. We suggest:
Membership dues of $36 (double chai)
Sustaining membership dues of $75
Patron dues of $100
2)Donations to one of the special funds for the purchase and translation of
Lithuanian records. These funds are not used for any other project. They
are currently being collected by Uzyed Research Groups. (Ninteenth Century
Lithuania had 3 guberniyas and 14 uzyeds--see Rhode & Sack, "Jewish Vital
Records, Revision Lists and Other Jewish Holdings in the Lithuanian
Archives" published by Avotaynu for more information.) Since ordering
records >from Lithuania is not nearly as simple as ordering >from the Land's
End Catalogue, it is not easy to say what records are available. As records
are received, translated and transcribed, they are entered into the All
Lithuania Database and will be on-line at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/alllith2.htm
To find out the current status of uzyeds that you are interested in, please
contact the Uzyed Research Group leader. If you would like to make a
donation to this project, please send your check payable to Litvak SIG to:
Peggy Mosinger Freedman
245 Dalrymple Road
Atlanta, GA 30328
Please DO NOT send money and tell me to look up your ancestral shtetl--I
have enough research work of my own!
If you need the list of uzyeds and shtetl's, contact me or Eric Goldstein
at ELGOLD1@aol.com and we will send you the file.
The Uzyed Research Group leaders are as follows:
Kovno Uyezd: Sylvia Nusinov <Curiousyl@aol.com>

the pages, but we are missing a webmaster.

Respones to queries #lithuania

Wolinsky <wolinsky@...>
 

Thanks to Len Yodaiken for the information on the origin of the TUMIN name.
As to Jonathan Parritz' question on the translation of records. When I
ordered the records, I paid the Archives in Kaunas extra (I can't remember
how much, but was a minimal cost per document) to translate this particular
batch of documents that were in Russian.

Dues and other basic information about the LitvakSIG #lithuania

DBH12345@...
 

Dear Readers of this Digest,

The comments in the Oct 28 Digest remind us that lots of new people are
joining this discussion group, and becoming members of the LitvakSIG all of
the time. It isn't surprising that some basic questions are being asked such
as "What are dues" and "Is there a LitvakSIG project for acquiring Revision
List records."

If you haven't already done so, be sure to look at our Infofile and Statement
of Goals and Objectives which go into considerable detail to explain why dues
are needed and what level of support is appropriate. This is at our LitvakSIG
website at <http://www.jewishgen.org/litvak/> along with the experimental
(beta) version of our All Lithuania Database, our Online Journal, and a pretty
comprehensive set of FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions and Answers) on Litvak
genealogical research. This is where you'll find guidance about the various
genealogical documents and archives and how to begin your research. Note that
many links to other important Internet sites are listed at the end of the
FAQs.

The entire website is under "reconstruction" as is the All Lithuania Database,
so be sure to check back here often. [By the way we are in great need for a
new Webpage Manager - lots of new material is ready to be added to our
website. Someone with some experience, a few hours a week and maybe some
graphic design skills would be a blessing!]

We are primarily a research group and by pooling resources with researchers
whose ancestors came >from the same shtetls, Uyezds (districts) and guberniyas
(provinces), and with others researching the same family names, we are able to
raise enough funds to purchase Revision Lists and other town genealogical
records on a "wholesale" basis. All of this material is being translated by
professionals and volunteers, and is being entered into our All Lithuania
Database.

In addition to these group acquisitions, many individuals and groups have
generously donated copies of their records for the database.

It is very important for you to let us know what your "ancestral towns" are so
that we can match you up with existing research groups. There were fourteen
uyezds (districts) in the Vilna and Kovno guberniyas during the 19th Century,
and we have very active research groups for 13 of these 14 districts. There
are also literally dozens of shtetl research groups, and several hundred small
matched groups which haven't yet begun to order records but are capable of
doing so. Most of us have ancestors who came >from several towns, or lived in
different places at different times, and so we are involved in several
different projects. The largest district groups have mailing lists of
hundreds of researchers. But it doesn't take many people to work successfully
together for small towns.

Please contact our Research Group Coordinator, Eric Goldstein
<ELGOLD1@aol.com> for more information.

If you haven't recently explored the accomplishments of many of the shtetl
groups, be sure that you go to the Shtetlinks website and look at all of
Lithuanian sites. And beyond the borders of Lithuania, Litvak communities
existed throughout eastern Europe. See <http://www.jewishgen.org/shtetlinks>.

Many new things are nearly ready for prime time: our newly organized All
Lithuania Database [Thanks to Anne Rothman], an online version of Vitalija
Gircyte's presentation to the Jewish Genealogical Seminar in July (complete
with maps and scanned sample documents), a copy of her Catalog of Jewish
Holdings of the Kaunas Archives, a translation of a mid 19th Century military
guide listing all Jewish places of residence in the seven districts of Kovno
Guberniya, new articles in the Online Journal and much more.

While we have a subscribership of between 600 and 700 people, less than a
third are actively involved or contribute dues. Your active involvement is
not only welcomed -- we need you!

*Re: A few items #hungary

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

I am not sure if I understood the question correctly, but here is a
tentative answer: if one attaches something to an email, the email agent
(the program you use to send and receive emails) does an encoding for
transmittal. That encoding is called MIME compliant protocol. When one
receives such attachment the opposite occurs, namely the email agent will
decode MIME. In other words, you have nothing to do, your email program
will do it for you. If you get garbled information, the major cause is that
the transmitting program was *not* MIME compliant.

As for the moderator's comment (I assume it's Louis), please clarify your
statement. What could be maybe is that the JewishGen server will *block*
attachments, but I have never heard that "attachments do not work for
newsgroups". Why would the server do that? Because it's a pain in the butt
to receive unsolicited attachments, which waste bandwidth. Even so, some
newbies do that, i.e. attach all kind of stuff which is of no interest to
the group. Therefor, it is quite likely that the JGen server blocks such
mails.

My 3 centavos today :)

Mod.- what you write appears brilliant, but unfortunately it appears dim in my eyes (through no fault of yours). Please contact Carol Skydell for further illumination on this topic. If you need her e-mail address contact me privately (yes it's Louis).

Conscripto Judeorum #hungary

Has this Jewish census of 1735-1738 survived? Are people listed by towns?
Are Jews listed w/o surnames? probably.

Does anyone currently have access to this census? If not, where is a copy
available?

Are the Jewish censuses of 1785 and 1787 available? Where? Are people
listed by towns? Anyone into these now?

I appreciate all of your continued help--

Mod.- It not only survives, but Irv Schermer now living in breezy Jerusalem has a photocopy of it. To locate his e-mail address go to Shtetlinks on Jewish gen and look for Hummene. He is listed as one of the people interested in that town. Another copy is in Bratislava. There may be other copies as well. There are individuals included there who have last names.

Any information or help that anyone can give me in tracking this family
would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks very much.

Hi all,

I am searching for the ZAVIN/ZEVIN family >from Minsk and Dubrovno (a town
near Minsk).

I'm also told that they were related to Rabbi Shlomo Yosef Zevin >from Israel.

Any information or help that anyone can give me in tracking this family
would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks very much.
