Rabbi Lamm has another book, regrettably far more frequently found in
Jewish homes. It is "The Jewish Way in Death and Mourning" and is given
in Ottawa by the Chevra Kadisha to every mourning household immediately
after the funeral.

In previous threads, people were discussing customs for a wedding. As a
recent bride (though no longer a kallah), I would like to recommend the
book "The Jewish Way in Love and Marriage" by Rabbi Maurice Lamm. He is
supposed to be the ultimate authority on marriage and Jewish Law. This
book helped me a great deal in understanding of proper ceremony,permitted
marriages, what goes on a ketubah,etc. as well helping me plan my wedding
ceremony.

If anyone feels their knowledge of Jewish Law in this area is lacking and
would help them better understand the geneological clues, I highly
recommend this book.

Rebecca, you probably received excellent and helpful information from
genners more knowledgeable than I concerning your inquiry. Please also
consider the following story:

I learned during this past winter that my paternal grandparents had a baby
boy who died at about the age of 2 weeks. This was probably around 1915.
My aunt who was a little girl at the time, said "a man came and took the
baby away," they did not own a cemetery plot in those early years and so he
was buried in Potter's Field.

Has anyone ever been able to find information on such burials?

Re: Paris birth certificate #general

In France Birth, Death and Marriage records less than 100 years old are
kept in the Town Hall so concerning Becon -les- Bruyeres, that belongs to
Courbevoie, they should be in the

Mairie de Courbevoie, Service de l'etat civil, Place de l'Hotel de Ville,
92400, Courbevoie , France

Unhappily, these records (except for Death records) are submited to the 100
years delay law. That means you will not receive a complete certificate
unless you can prove it is for administrative purpose or you are the son or
grand-son. At best, they will send you an extract, with very few
indications, but it is not sure.

Belchatow Shtetl CO-OP Work Complete!!! #poland

Ronisl@...
 

Greetings,

I am very happy to announce that all the LDS films for Belchatow, which is 27
miles south of Lodz and 13 miles west of Piotrkow Trybunalski, have been
indexed and are searchable on-line at the Jewish Records Indexing-Poland
(JRI-Poland) website. These indices cover the years 1809 through 1888. In
less than two years the wonderful international group of volunteers completed
their work. Our team was made up of Dr Lester Bilsky (Arkansas, USA), Miriam
S. Deitcher (Ohio, USA), Pawel Brunon Dorman (Warsaw, Poalnd), , Alan
Frishman (New York, USA), Jenny Jackson (Victoria, Australia), Roni Seibel
Liebowitz (New York, USA), and Steve Rabinowitz, MD (New York, USA). This
has been a very rewarding and learning experience.

At the Jewish Genealogy Conference in California, the idea to form this
Shtetl CO-OP first occurred. No one could have been greener than I was when
I first started. However, with the wonderful help >from Hadassah Lipsius,
Steve Zedek, Stanley Diamond, and Michale Tobias, the team was able to
complete its work. I thought I had all the records >from Belchatow for my
personal family research, but I was wrong. Being involved like this, helps
one look more closely and oftentimes discover connections that were not so
obvious the first time around. I am also grateful for the wonderful
friendships that have grown as a result of working and laughing together with
such caring people.

If you are even beginning to think about coordinating or volunteering to work
with a Shtetl CO-OP Indexing team, do not hesitate. You'll learn as you go
along and end up getting so much more out of it than you give. This
Independence Day weekend (in the USA) was a big one for us with the last
database for Belchatow going live on-line.

We are also thrilled that through the generosity of many people interested in
Belchatow, the Polish State Archives (PSA) indexes for the years 1889 through
1899 are also complete and on-line.

Happy Searching!

Constance Whippman and All Latvia Database #latvia

Arlene Beare <arl@...>
 

I beg indulgence for yet another message and fulsome praise for the
Database and the people that have made it happen. It is really necessary to
acknowledge the contribution made by all the helpers who have worked so hard.

The launch of the All Latvia Database has been "like the birth of a baby" .
I quote Constance Whippman our Database Co-Ordinator .

Constance has been extremely generous in her thanks to all who have helped
and to me in particular. She has also been extremely modest about her
achievements.

I cannot let this opportunity pass without giving her the accolades she so
richly deserves. She has worked into the early hours for months on end in
order to get the Database online.
Constance has the ability to ferret out sources of information that would
pass by anyone else. Her eagle eye will note a missing umlaut or a name in
the wrong column.
She has written extensive introductions and sent data to all corners of the
Globe.
There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that this database would not exist
without her tireless commitment. I thank her on behalf of all interested in
Latvia for the work she has done which will live as a lasting salute to the
memory of our ancestors.

I would also like to express my thanks to Mike Getz who is always there to
offer friendly advice,smooth oil on troubled waters and input information
where necessary.
He is the Projects Co-ordinator for Latvia SIG and has been always been
able to help with advice as he has an extensive knowledge of Latvia.He has
always cherished the dream of reconstructing the lost community and this
database is the continuation of a dream that began with him as President of
Latvia SIG.

I echo Constance's thanks to Kathy Wolfson, Stanislav Gorbulev, Charles
Nam, Iris Sitkin, Max Michaelson, Robert Heyman, Felix Rabbinovich, Jeremy
Hodes, Malcolm Singer, Carmen Wiseman, Lorraine Bertelson and Maria Krane .

I would also like to thank The Courland Research Steering Committee,
Constance Whippman, Dr.Paul Berkay, Dr. Martha Levinson Lev-Zion and Dr.
Abraham Lenhoff. They have shown total commitment to the database and it is
really appreciated by me and all researching family >from Latvia. The launch
of the excellent Courland Research Group Webpage is also welcomed. It is
an excellent page full of information and well worth a visit.

All Latvia Database: Credit Where Credit is Due #latvia

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/latvia/

Following Martha Lev Zion's heartfelt announcement of the launch of our new
All Latvia Database can I take the opportunity to thank publicly all those
who have helped to create this wonderful new resource for Jewish family
history.

First, many thanks to our friends in Latvia including Professor Ruvin Ferber
and Professor Aigars Stranga at the Centre for Judaic Studies in Riga, part
of the University of Latvia. We owe an immense debt of gratitude to the
Archivists at the Riga State Historical Archives for advice and support for
this project. Dr. Tatjana Aleksejeva, Riga, has helped us to identify and
obtain important material >from printed sources. The contribution of Dr.
Peter Woerster of the Herder Institute is also much valued. We are also
grateful to the Jewish community of Dvinsk who has shared its memories and
family information with Mike Getz and the Latvia SIG in hopes that the
memories of the Jewish Familes of Latgale would be preserved.

Our volunteers have been unfailingly cheerful and generous with their time
and skills. A big thank you to Kathy Wolfson, Stanislav Gorbulev, Charles
Nam, Iris Sitkin, Max Michaelson, Robert Heyman, Felix Rabbinovich, Jeremy
Hodes, Malcolm Singer, Carmen Wiseman, Lorraine Bertelson and Maria Krane.
I think it would be fair to say that the sun did not set on the database
project as efforts were combined >from volunteers in the USA, Australia,
Israel, Europe the United Kingdom and South Africa.

The launch would not be complete without a special mention for the efforts of
Arlene Beare, the President of the Latvia SIG UK, the creator of the Riga
Stetlinks Resources page and the Moderator of the All Lavtvia News Group.
She masterminded the work that went on behind the scenes to bring us all the
wonderful Riga Lists including the major databases, the Riga Tax
Administration records and the Riga Police records. These are priceless
resources most generously donated on behalf of the Latvia SIG to the database
effort. This contribution will benefit not only those who presently seek
their Jewish heritage but those who will search in generations to come. Her
energy, determination and complete commitment to the cause of Jewish family
history is known to all who work with her.

I would also like to thank Mike Getz, the past President of the Latvia SIG,
who has given this project a wise and guiding hand over the past months. His
knowledge and experience plus the many friendships he has built up over the
years in Latvia have greatly benefited this project.

My personal thanks to the members of the Courland Research Steering
Committee, Dr. Paul Berkay, Dr. Martha Levinson Lev-Zion and Dr. Abraham
Lenhoff who have been involved in virtually every step of the various
projects. It has been the best possible team effort and also huge fun.

I leave the final thank you for our webmasters Michael Tobias and Warren
Blatt. When I learned that we had been offered their services by JewishGen
it was like winning the genealogical lottery twice. I am still in awe of
what they do. That they do it with such unfailing patience and good humour
is part of the magic.

Many, many thanks to all of you.
