Shea=Shie=Shaye are all diminutives of Ishayahu (Isaiah, the biblical

Server problems #latvia

Arlene Beare <arl@...>
 

A number of you have written asking about the lack of messages. The Lyris
server has been down and hopefully will now be in working order. I have not
posted all the messages asking about the problem as I hope that this will
clarify the position.

Re: Memmel #lithuania

JFIBEL@...
 

The current name of Memel is Klaipeda in Lithuania. There are quite a few
researchers listed in the JGFF for this community.

When you list the surnames you are researching, it's a good idea to
mention the communities (all of them) >from which each of them derives.
That kind of information can help people make a real connection.

Update on availability of Holocaust database at Yad Vashem #general

Michael Steinore <msteinor@...>
 

In the Winter '99 edition of Avotaynu, there is a brief article entitled

"Yad Vashem to Post Database on Web in March". It discusses the
availability of a database created by Yad Vashem that will contain
information on 2-3 million Holocaust victims.

I received a more recent update >from Mr. Zvi Bernhardt of Yad Vashem, in
which he very much doubted the database will be available >on the web<
anytime soon, though that was certainly the hope. It will, however, be
available locally at Yad Vashem next week.

I'm far removed >from the situation. If anyone will be at Yad Vashem in
the near future, it would be nice to have an update on the web availability
as well as any information what the database is like (e.g. how does the
search engine work?)

Hello,

I am researching Rabbi Yitzchok Gronner, who was the Rosh Beis Din, (Head
of the Court), in Klausenberg, or Cluj/Kalishvar. The time frame would have
been between 1850-1900 or so.

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanx in advance
