Searching GUFFENBERG Israel or Isadore -Booklyn New York #general

Bernard Goffenberg <goff@...>
 

I have been trying to trace the descendants of:-
GUFFENBERG Isadore or Israel born 15 January 1880 and died April 1963
1] >from 1933 to 1943 he was listed as living at 138E 37th Str Brooklyn NY.
this was the last time he appeared in the Brooklyn Phone directory.
2] His business address in 1933 was 580 Atlantic Ave, Brooklyn [which I was
told was the address of the Old Times Square Hotel] He was a cigar merchant
.
3] His business moved to 18 4th Ave in 1936, here he last appeared in the
Phone Directory in 1937.
4] In the 1930 Brooklyn Street Index ,the following were listed as living
with him:-
Anne I would guess that this was his wife , also Misha, Claire, Julius and
Pearl.
5] I have traced Isadore GUFFENBERG Social Security No.and tried to get
information >from them, his death date is listed as April 1963 but there is
no place of death listed.
6] I applied to the Social Security for copies of his applications or any
other information they may have available but I was informed that they have
no place of death listed .
7] I applied to both New York and Florida for death certificates on the off
chance that he may have died there, but he could not be traced at either of
these places.
8] I tried to get his naturalization details, but have been advised that
although they have a record of him they cannot trace his file.They gave me a
number of addresses to which I could appeal-- which I have done .
9] I tried the FBI, but received a notification that they had no record of
him .
10] I hope to check phone directories in Nassau and New Jersey after 1937
as soon as I get the opportunity.
Any further ideas as to what to do next would be appreciated.

JGS Meetings #general

Patricia Adams
 

As Allan Jordan wrote he, living in NY, would love to hear the lecture to
be given at the Sacramento JGS meeting. I, living in rural NH would also
love to hear the lectures and discussions in NY, Boston and around the
country.

I hope there are some Genners that belong to these Societies who will be
willing to volunteer their time, which for anyone researching genealogy
is limited, and take pity on us not able to attend and miss some wonderful
information, not to say the loss of missing the wonderful people that
belong to these groups.

Thanks.

the authors of these suggestions would undertake this project

Relationship documentation #general

knotsys@...
 

The foundation of all Sciences are notations that enable Scientists to
document research results in ways that allows other Scientists to confirm or
dispute their findings. (A notation is a concrete, symbolic encoding of
information into numbers, words, names and / or symbols.)

Good notations help researchers imagine, visualise and measure properties of
the elements and processes they are investigating. They provide vehicles for
communication which allows information to be passed on in uniform, correct
and commonly understood fashions.

Blood relationship between individuals is a prime element of both the
genetics and genealogy sciences, but until now there has not existed a
notation which scientifically correct would document relationships of even
limited complexity.

The Knot System as defined at URL: "http://www.knotsystem.suite.dk/" is a
proposal for a standardised, scientifically correct method of documenting and
communicating any blood relationship based on bisexual reproduction. It will
enable geneticists and genealogists to comprehend and exchange much more
complex relationships than before, hopefully with a positive impact on
research results.

A discussion forum "The Knot System Community" has been established at
DejaNews at URL: "http://www.dejanews.com/~knotsystem/". There you can read
other peoples opinions and exchange your personal views on relationship
notations in general and the Knot System in particular. Please join the
community and influence its content, or just go there and browse the pages as
an invited guest.

It is my hope that above forum will help the genetics and genealogical
communities to realise that an internationally accepted, scientifically
correct notation of relationship will benefit all parties. I also hope that
eventually the Knot System will be recognised as that common relationship
notation.

thanks #general

Howard M. Kaplan <howardmk@...>
 

To the Moderator (Whoever you may be!!) Thanks for the fabulous help in
sending me to the ShtetlSeeker. It not only located the town I was
seeking, it corrected my guesspelling and nailed the area! I was told my
great grandfather was the town's "postmaster" in czarist days -- which
meant he furnished the droshkies and horses for the tax man when he came
to town to collect! Not very many Jews had positions like that, I
understand. But it kept the cossacks at bay. Thanks again.

Re: Jewish Midwifery #general

My great-great-grandmother was a midwife here in the US, as was my wife's
great-grandmother. I don't know if that makes the profession common
amongst Jewish women during the early decades of this century, but I would
guess that it was not unheard of. I know that family lore says that my
wife's great-grandmother was trained in a program at Columbia University,
and I have read of that program in books on the history of midwifery.
(You might want to check "American midwives, 1860 to the present" by Judy
Barrett Litoff, or "The American midwife debate : a sourcebook on its
modern origins" by Judy Barrett Litoff. I don't know if these have the
information on that program or what is in them - just found them listed in
my library's catalog and they look as though they might be useful.)
However, I have never sent a query to Columbia to find out what records
they have on the training program.

Slutsk Yiskor Book #general

Gramto <gramto@...>
 

I'm sending out this e-mail as an all points bulletin to all JewishGenners with
an interest in Slutsk.

We are getting the Yiskor book on line with JewishGen. This site
will be universally available and should be a great resource for all who are
interested in the story of Slutsk as seen by its survivors back in the early
1960's.

The book contains much that is valuable by way of social history. It also has.
of course, quantities of names--lists of contributors, lists of members of
organizations, advertisements, captions under pictures and these are of vital
genealogical value.

For those of you who have seen the book, you know that a small part of it
isalready in English. The rest is in Yiddish or Hebrew. Being able to get at
the information locked within its pages would be a tremendous boon to all of
us.

We need translators. The job can be a small or as large as you have time for,
but if any of you could do this for us, it would be a real mitzvah.
