towns. Because the encyclopedia is over 75 years old, there are no
copyright restrictions on republishing selected articles on the SIG
website.
I recently wanted photocopies of a book published in 1916. The
librarian said I could have them only if the author (the owner of the
copyright, presumably) had been dead for 75 years. The date of
publication apparently was not relevant.

The copyright laws vary >from country to country -- In Denmark the copyright
is with the author or his heirs until 70 years after his death!!! Not after
the publication of his work!

As an example:
A book published in the beginning of the 20th century is not yet free of
copyright if the author didn't die till -- say -- around the 1950'ies!
In that case we will have to wait until the 2020'ies to use his book - that
is if we cannot find the heirs and get their written permission!!!!

Furthermore the publisher might also have copyrights (depending on the
contract made with the author at the time of the publication).

So it can be tricky!
In the case of the Jewish Encyclopedia, it depends on the laws of the
country in which is was published (and maybe also -- not quite sure about
that -- on the nationality of the author).

So caution is needed!

Best regards

Tolna county, Hungary #general

Gilda and Bob Kurtzman <gildak@...>
 

Recently there was a message on the "MavenSearch" list announcing a site
about the History of the Jews in Tolna county, Hungary. Perhaps it will
interest some of you.

It is about the settlement, history, culture, traditions and eventual
destruction of the Jewish community of Tolna county.

English Translation of Stammbuch der Frankfurter Juden #general

LRROBBINS@...
 

Good morning. I have been unable to locate a copy of the English Translation
of Stammbuch der Frankfurter Juden by Alexander Dietz which was published
about 1988 by Vanderher Publications Cornwall, UK ISBN 0-95141580-8. I would
like to purchase one. Does anyone know of a source? I have not tried
interlibrary loan since I am trying to purchase the book. I know that is an
option if I am unable to find a copy. Thank you for your help. Leonard

Re: Yedidya (and Modigliani) #general

Reply to message >from "Joseph Goldschmidt" <goldsmit@netvision.net.il>

Yedidya = Amadeus or Amede, French Amedee, Amadis; = Godolewa or Godelewa
feminine low German name; Gottlieb masculine German name.
A street in north Tel Aviv is named after the known Italian painter and
sculptor as "Amadeo Yedidya Modigliani", I am not sure that he himself
knew his Hebrew name.
Actually, he probably did. His surname, I am given to understand, is not
the one he was born with, but one that he adopted after an illness as a
way to express gratitude for his recovery: "Modeh leYah Ani" (=I thank
God) -- Say it fast, and see how it comes out; Italian-sounding enough to
fit easily into his milieu.

If he was able to devise this surname, he very likely knew his Hebrew name.
It may also give a clue to why this particular "Italian" artist has a street
in Tel-Aviv.

Help to obtain copy from Kolo? #general

Kirsten Gradel <kmgradel@...>
 

Dear Genners

In mid September I found in JRI-databases a record >from Kolo, Poland that
with near certaincy is a link to an unknown part of our PRASZNICER
family. I ordered that film - and several others - >from Kolo but have not
yet received them. It takes 6-8 months to get ordered films to our little
FHC.

Patience is not my strongest point, so the 4 months since have streched
it to the limit.

Is there one of you out there in cyberspace, who has the Kolo, BDM
1869-77, film 1191088 in your local FHC? If yes, I would be extremely
grateful if you would help me with a photocopy of a marriage record >from
that film. I will reimburse your costs with an international reply-coupon.

Thanking you in advance
