Did Ed Cohler write a book or is it possible to get a copy of the Hebrew
Abbreviations >from someone or somewhere?
Also, I am very interested in becoming a professional genealogist and
wanted to know if there were college courses required of this profession
and if so, are there any colleges in the Los Angeles area that provides
these courses.

Last week I was doing research in the National Archives in NYC (btwn
Houston+ Varick St). I made a copy of what I thought was my
great-grandfather, Thomas/Tanchum SHAPIRO's Naturalization papers. He was
naturalized in 1902. This Tom was a Tailor mine was in the Liquor
business. If anyone thinks this is there relative please e-mail me
privately.

Re: Acronym Lamed Pay Kuf? #general

Cyndee Meystel <cmeys@...>
 

That is correct, but what "according to the modern calendar" means (I
believe) is that the year is writtin in "short" form, without the first
digit -- the current year of 5760 is written as just 760 (in Hebrew letters
of course)

German town WWII #general

Foodphile@...
 

My father told me he was a staff sergeant in the army during WWII and that
in 1945 they took over the German town of "Mockmuchl." Since I find no
listing anywhere of this town, I have to assume that the spelling is
incorrect. If anyone has heard of a town which sounds close to this name,
I would appreciate it very much if you could enlighten me. I wonder if
there is a website with detailed history of our troop maneuvers and
occupied towns during WWII? Thanks!

Re: Beatrice as a Jewish name #general

Rick Barry <rikbarry@...>
 

Beatrice is a common name for Jewish women. I had an aunt "Beattie" and I've
known several other Beatties and Beatrices. All Jewish, all born in earlier
generations.

The only oddity was that in census reports, the Beatrice's sometimes were
referred to as "Betsy", a shortening you never hear nowadays. My
grandfather always called her "Beatie", and I never heard the Betsy used
by my mother.

Re: Lodz PSA MATCHING FUNDS CHALLENGE! #poland

Seflaum@...
 

I included some incorrect information in my last posting. I made the false
claim that, when fully funded, Lodz will become the city with more available
indices than any other city in the JRI-Poland database (with 66,000 indices).
I have been informed that, in fact, Krakow has posted over 94,000 indices.
It's no so bad to be in 2nd place! I apologize for any resulting confusion.

NY Census Finding Aids - Salt Lake City Conference #general

Stephanie Lewis <stefwlewis@...>
 

Dear JewishGenners,

Back in October, 1999, Allan Jordan was kind enough to tip us off
regarding finding aids at the NYPL that would provide the AD/ED for the
1905, 1915 and 1925 NY state census. Specifically, he advised that there
was a microfilm at the NYPL that would like up the address and the ED/AD.
He seemed to refer to it as a single microfilm reel(???) ZI-539. Is there
any possibility that:(
(a)there is a similar finding aid in Salt Lake City?
(b) a copy of the one ? at the NYPL could be made and made available at
the Salt Lake City Conference?
(c) some other arrangements could be made to make that information
available for this summer's conference?

Allan also made reference to some black ring binders at the NYPL that
would match up the AD/ED for the state census for the appropriate reel
numbers. Again, any possibility that this information could be made
available at the conference in some way, shape or form?

I will be doing a lot of NY research in Salt Lake, and just can't get back
to NY! Any way that this could be accomplished??

I'd appreciate any help anyone can provide!
Thanks in advance!
