Ottumwa, Iowa and Jacob GAIL #general

Tim Baker <tbaker@...>
 

Please contact me privately if you are familiar with the Jewish history of
Ottumwa, Iowa, and specifically if you have information regarding whether
or not Jews in Ottumwa around the turn of the century or a little before
tended to be >from one particular area of Lithuania/Russia. Family history
has it that Jacob GAIL went to Ottumwa to farm because a landsman was
there, but we still don't know his ancestral shtetl. Thank you.

Jaffe(nee Klor) - Chicago #general

Sheldon Clare <sheldonc@...>
 

I am still searching for any descendents of my father's first cousin Sora
Bashe KLOR JAFFE who lived in the Chicago area. She was born in
Lithuania(Anixt, Ponyevezh?) and was one of at least 9 siblings. Her
parents were Zelig ben Khloine Lapidus and Nekhe Klor. All of her siblings,
all gone now, emigrated to Cordoba, Argentina in the late 20's.
She may have had at least 2 sons. Also, the spelling of JAFFE may be
incorrect. It could have been JOFFE, YOFFE, etc.

Re: Seeking a Liberator--SCWARTZ #general

It might help to identify the camp and the specific army that was involved in
the liberation. Various books of memoirs by soldiers have been coming out
lately. If you know which specific division was involved in the liberation
you might be able to contact either that division's headquarters or a fellow
soldier who has written up his story for more leads. Good luck.

ASCHNER and PICK in Berlin 1940 #general

Rakoff125
 

Thanks to Peter Lande's help I have several documents in German relating to
the business run by Ernst ASCHNER and Ella PICK in Berlin. It had to do with
an agency helping people emigrate to Shanghai. If you are in the greater
Boston area I would love help in translating the documents. If you are
connected to PICK, a name I have seen here often before, please contact me
privately.

Re: symbols for genograms #general

Joel Achtenberg
 

The standard (in my mind at least) reference for creating (and using)
genograms is a book by Monica McGoldrick. and Randy Gerson: Genograms in
Family Assessment (Norton, New York, 1985).

Dear group,

Has any of you heard about family tree "genograms" or "genographs". I
was told that there are standard symbols to indicate birth, marriage,
divorce, death etc... that are use in social work to illustrate a family
tree.

When I was a little girl in Brooklyn, house painters were called
paintners. Could that be what the person intended to write? Painttner?

Hi, everyone!
I just received a copy of a 1915 Toronto marriage certificate for

Yes, "Rninttner".
The handwriting is very clear, and I've typed it correctly.

Re: Early Israeli Death Certificates #general

yoni ben-ari <mrtfuzot@...>
 

Over and above information that the Chevra Kadisha in Jerusalem can supply,
our family research was assisted by a fascinating old book called in hebrew
"Chelkat Michokek" by a Rabbi Brisk. The story of this book is that this
Rabbi who it seems had no means of support thought up a great idea. He
wondered through the Mount of Olives cemetary and wrote down the
inscriptions of all the tombstones that were on the Mount during his
lifetime.

I saw a copy of the book at the Israel National Library in Jerusalem. I
don't know where in the states it could be found, maybe at the J.T.S.
library in New York or some similar institution. Ofcourse some who has
contact with the Israel National Library can review the book there.

I have 2 ggrandfathers buried on the Mt. of Olives in Jerusalem.
One died in 1899 and one in 1901. The Israeli Consulate in NYC
tells me that no death certificates are available through them
earlier than 1948. Can someone tell me how I might find these
documents? I did receive the locations of their graves through the
Chevra Kadisha in Jerusalem. Thank you.

Dear all,

In our family there is a woman >from Poland/Russia whose given name is
"Cherney". I can't find it in my reference book on Jewish names. Has
anyone seen or heard of it?

The feminine first name Cherna/Cherne (pronoumce CH as TSH) is a Slavic
adjective CZARNA meaning "black" in the sense of "brunette" ,a girl having
black hair/eyes.

See my article entitled: Colours in female names. Shasheret Hadorot (Israel
Gen. Soc.), vol. 0, no.3, 1996. p.XIV-XV.
Sharsheret Hadorot is sent to all the Jewish Genealogical Societies.
