Subject: Re: new book and Tamas Stark


Dear Louis. Welcome home. As I already informed you once in my office, Tamas
Stark is highly regarded by his colleagues at the Institute of History of
the Hungarian Academy of Science as an expert on demography and statistics.
He is the author of a large number of studies (monographs and articles) on
the losses of Hungarian Jewry, including the one your correspondent noted.
Professor Geza Komoroczy, the head of the Judaic Studies Institute of the
Academy, identified Stark as a "minimizer," that is someone who is dedicated
to "demonstrate" that the losses of Hungarian Jewry were much lower than
those referred to by other scholars, including myself. His conclusion is
that Hungarian Jewry suffered "only" around 400,000 casualties. My estimate
of the losses is around 550,000. The popularly held view is that the
Hungarian chapter of the Holocaust claimed 600,000 lives. I wish you and
yours a very Happy Passover. Randy

My mother tells me her maternal grandfather, Louis Shaffer was Leizer
Asher in Hebrew. I know that Leizer is Yiddish. I found Louis'
daughter's Ketuba ( my grandparents ), and saw that his name was written
as Eliezer Asher. My question; is Leizer a kinui for Eliezer or a
Yiddish translation of the name Eliezer, or is there a mistake?

Looking for kin of Ruby JOSEPH #general

Mike Fischer <miketran@...>
 

My great aunt, Dora Szawzyn ( approximate spelling) had a son Ruby Joseph.
There were also 2 other sons. Ruby was married to a woman named Charlotte.
I heard that Ruby was a lawyer in the Chicago area. If he is still alive,
I can't find any record of him.

Kin of Phillip and Gussie GORDON #general

Mike Fischer <miketran@...>
 

Phillip Gordon was my grandfather's brother. Phillip had 2 brothers,
Samuel and William. Phillip's parents were Abe and Rose Gordon. The family
was >from Poland. It seems that that the family name in Russia (Bialystock)
was not Gordon, but something like Jachnuk or Yuchnuk. When William came
here, he was met by a cousin whose last name was Gordon and somehow he
ended up with that as his last name. Phillip and Gussie had 3 children,
Abe, Philli and Silvie. My mother's name was Sylvia and it is possible
that both Sylvie and my mother were both named after the same relative
whose Hebrew name was Sara Bryna. I understand that there were a few
people named after this relative. I also heard that all 3 brothers named
a son Abe after their father. My mother has a brother Abe.

Israeli Telephone books #hungary

Bernard Weill
 

Would be interested in knowing whether it is possible
to purchase or obtain the Israeli telephone "white
pages".I would need it as an important tool in my
geneaological research. I cannot easily or
intelligently access the Israeli white pages on the
Web because it is in Hebrew. Any suggestions or ideas
are welcome.

Seeking kin of Irving and Ceil RABINOWITZ #general

Mike Fischer <miketran@...>
 

Irving Rabinowitz was my father's first cousin. He had 2 sisters, Helen
Ruth and Sylvia Zipes. >from what I was told, Irving had a heart attack
while walking on the streets of New York and died. I remember that he and
Ceil married when I was a little girl and I was enchanted with Ceil. That
would be in the 1940s. When I started my family search, 2 years ago, I
contacted his sister, Helen. She didn't want to discuss anything with me.
I also called his sister Sylvia who I had been in random contact with in
the early years. She also declined to tell me anything. Ceil and Irving
had 2 children, Arthur and Stephanie. I would like very much to be able
to add Irving's family to my family tree.

Re: Payment when we order copies of records from the PSA #poland

Dear friends,
To order copies of records >from the PSA (NOT >from Mormon microfilms!):
"special instructions" say:
- do not send personnal checks
-payment must be included with the order.
I would like to know if we may send (>from France) a postal money order
in Euros or in French Francs (it is the only one possibility offered to us
by the Postoffice!) In this case, the payment wil arrive later than our
command (order) but the photocopy of the order can be joined to the
acts-order :is it a problem?
Regards,
Florence Mendelssohn, Paris (France)
Because orders are now sent directly to the local branches of the
Polish State Archives, there is no longer a central source of policy
regarding payment.

The local branches of the arcives have experience in handling
US$ payments but may not be willing to accept payment in
other currencies.

I can only suggest that you write to the specific archive branch
(>from which you plan to order copies of documents) before
sending your order and arranging for payment and ask what
other forms of payment will be accepted. To preclude any
misunderstanding, I suggest the letter be written in Polish.
