Where is Kadon, Russia #general

Tom Smith <tmsmith2@...>
 

Dear Jewishgen:

The details of my paternal grandfather's background have been somewhat
of a mystery to our family. His death certificate >from 1936 in Chicago
shows his birthplace as Kadon, Russia. His father's surname is shown on
the certificate as Smith and his mother's maiden name as Block. However,
when I searched for Kadon, I hit no exact spelling but many sound
alikes. Before coming to the USA, family lore has it that he was in
South Africa for a few years during and after the Boer War. However, I
have not yet been able to find any records of this. He married my
grandmother in Chicago, and she was >from Vendzigola near Kovno,
Lithuania.

Does anyone have a notion as to which place would most likely be
referred to in English as Kadon? Also, what would be the best database
for online search of this place?

Yiddish Translation Request #general

Janice Sellers <janice@...>
 

Dear Jewishgenners,

I would appreciate any help in translating some Yiddish written on the back
of a photo postcard. A scan of the Yiddish is at:

http://publications.seismosoc.org/~janice/RigaYiddish.tiff

I do not read Yiddish, so I could easily have this oriented in the wrong
direction. If I do, please let me know which way it should be, and I'll
repost it. The back of the postcard also has a mark on it that includes
"Riga."

A picture of the couple shown on the postcard is at:

http://publications.seismosoc.org/~janice/RigaCouple.jpg

I do not know who either person in the photo is.

Please respond privately.

Thanks for any help,

Rude Relply from relative #general

Flo Elman
 

In surfing the Net, I came across my cousin's son's email address. I wrote
to him & received this reply . The following is the interchange ....
I wrote:
Would you by any chance be the son of [name omitted] If so, I am a first
cousin to [your mother], & would like to get in touch with you. (I'm
publishing our Family History & would like to discuss it with you.)

His totally baffling response was:

"Yes.

I don't know you. I am not willing to provide further information. Please
remove my name >from any email lists or any other form of communication.

Please respect my privacy.

Thank you."

That was it. I followed up with a short note that said:
"I was stunned by your curt reply. When you celebrated your barmitzvah, my
husband, Harold & I were there, & even dropped by your house to bring your
gift. If you "don't know who I am", you can ask your mother when you speak
to her. (She & I are on the phone together frequently.) If your mother is my
1st cousin, that makes us 1st cousins once removed. Not a distant
relationship at all!! You can check it out below. It represents 29 years of
work! I hope you recognize this family.

Sincerely,
Florence"

He actually answered with just one line; no names or signature: "Remove all
references to me >from your lists."

The information I have about him came >from what was already (his work &
email are online in more than 4 pages of Google!!), the only other info are
his vital statistics & wife's name. I believe all of this is in the public
domain & the genealogist is permitted to use it.

What would you do in this situation? I'm publishing *just for immediate
family* very shortly & don't like omitting relationships on my trees.

Thanks a lot,
