Allen Co. Public Library Closing Announcement #general

Susan Kaufman <Skaufman@...>
 

Closing Date Announcement
Genealogy Department of the Allen County Public Library, Fort Wayne,
Indiana

The Historical Genealogy Department of the Allen County Public Library
will close for relocation on Saturday, December 14, 2002 at 6pm. The
department will remain closed through the month of January 2003. This is
to allow time to move all our materials to our interim location. The
current building will be going through renovation and expansion.

Will materials be available?
All our research materials will be available up until Saturday, December
14 at 6pm. At that time the department will be closed so we can move all
our materials to our interim location. When the library opens at that
location, we will have all our books, microforms and periodicals ready for
research.

Why will we be closed?
Closing the department will allow us to move the whole collection at once
instead of doing it piecemeal. This will ensure that the materials you
are coming to Fort Wayne to use for your research will be available when
you arrive, offering the full collection for our researchers. If we moved
pockets of materials, what you needed for your research might not be
available. By moving the whole collection at once it will ensure that the
materials you are interested in will be available until we close on
December 14th, and when we reopen in late January 2003.

Where will the interim location be?
The interim location of the Allen County Public Library will be at 200
East Berry St., Fort Wayne, Indiana. Locally, it is called Renaissance
Square. It is 5 blocks to the east >from the current library. There will
be limited free parking available; there is also a pay parking garage
across the street and more than 150 metered spaces in close proximity.

What will the interim location be like?
One of the most exciting things about our interim location is that the
genealogy collection will be a browsing collection. All the materials
will be out and available for the researcher to retrieve them. Materials
will not have to be paged; the shelves will be open.

How long will we be in the interim location?
The projected time frame is 2-3 years.

How can I find out more information?
Visiting the library web site http://www.acpl.lib.in.us phoning the
department at 260-421-1225 is the best way to get current relocation
information.

This is a very exciting time for all of us, librarians and researchers
alike. Our goal is to keep our patrons informed and continue to offer the
highest level of customer service possible now, in our interim location,
and in our newly renovated library.

For further contact, please phone the department or email Curt Witcher,
Manager, Historical Genealogy Department-ACPL at cwitcher@acpl.lib.in.us
or Susan Kaufman Tavenner, Librarian, Historical Genealogy Department-ACPL
at skaufman@acpl.lib.in.us

Please publish and/or pass this information on to all others that might be
interested. Thank you!

Re: Where are Passele and Kraslava ??? (Latvia area) #courland #latvia

Yoav,
This might be hopelessly incorrect, but worth a try .
A few years ago I visited a shtetl (a very small shtettele) tucked away in
the Northwest of Lithuania, named PIKELIAI (in Lithuanian) but was known as
PIKKELE by its former Jewish inhabitants. The village is literally a
stone's-throw >from the river that forms the border between Lithuania and
Latvia.
If memory serves me correctly , Pikeliai is due North of the regional centre
of Mazeikiai. At the turn of the last century, most of the inhabitants of
Pikeliai were Jewish and a thriving smuggling operation existed between the
two regions of Lithuania and Latvia.
My father-in -law's family (Neiman/Neuman) came >from Pikkele/Pikeliai.
The similatity between the two names of Passelle and Pikelle, and the
geographic locality should be taken note of.

You are probably right about us all coming out of Africa. DNA preserves
evidences of relationships going tens of thousands of years back in time.
Going that far back, everyone is related.

One of the realities is that the Kohen line was scrupulously preserved and
controlled. There was no such stringent control over Levites. Some, in fact,
hold that non-Levites were recruited to the Levite office at the time of the
restoration of the Temple, because of the iandequate number of Levite
returnees >from Babylonian exile to fulfill the duties in the temple. (Unlike
the Cohanim, who lived off their special perks of office and had no other
trade, the Levites--teachers, scribes, musicians, singers--could support
themselves well in exile.

As I recall, the researchers of the original work on Kohanim repeated their
studies on Levi'im and found three separate genetic strains predominating
among these, which is compatible with the theory of non-Levite recruitment

Dear Fellow Researchers,

At long last the initiative to index the Jewish records of the
Sandomierz Archives has been started. This will be under the auspices
of JRI-Poland/Polish State Archives project. These records have not
been filmed by the Mormons thus will enable researchers to expand their
research into a time period that has until now been difficult to
research. The years encompass the time when our great-grandparents,
grandparents, and parents were born and married.

The following towns are included in the archive:
Annopol
Bogoria
Janow Lubelski
Klimontow
Koprzywnica
Krzeszow
Kurozweki
Opatow
Osiek
Ozarow
Polaniec/Plontch

I'm Archive Coordinator in addition to being Town Leader for Ozarow and
