I have relatives buried at the society of "Congregation-Son of Telsch"

city in Lithuania so it is a good chance they came >from Lithuania, but would
immigrates join a society >from Telsch if they never lived in the town or
just the fact that it was a Lithuania group?

Re: grave of GREENBERG Al american ww2 dead soldier #general

Lisa Lepore <llepore@...>
 

I received a message to my personal email >from someone
in this group pointing out that my original response to Sara
was useless because she was in Israel - [I had suggesting
trying the NY Times lists of WWII dead and injured, then looking
in the more local Brooklyn paper for more details].

The message I received said obtaining microfilm of the
Brooklyn paper would not be too likely.

I am responding to the group, because I have some additional
suggestions, and a question.

First, I didn't realize Sara was in Israel, but in my opinion, if her
ancestor was living in Brooklyn at the time of his death, then the more
local Brooklyn paper would be the most likely place to look for an article.
[after learning the date of death]

Second, if microfilm cannot be borrowed, here are some additional
suggestions -

If she can narrow down the date of death, she can ask someone in
this group to take a look for an article.

She can contact the library in Brooklyn by email to ask for a copy of
an article once she has a date to work with.

She can use the random act of genealogical kindness website to find a
volunteer to look up an article.

Or, she can contact her own local library to see if there is such a
thing as interlibrary loans of microfilm to a library outside of the US.

If one is looking for a person in New York, then one must use the
sources available for New York, so I'll stand by my answer.

My question is how does someone in Israel access these items?
Could someone who is located in Israel comment on the availability
of newspaper microfilm for foreign countries, or the availability of
on line US newspapers in libraries; such as the New York Times, or the
Chicago Tribune that are offered through some libraries in the US; or
in general how does a person in Israel access research items that are
located in the US?

Bet-Aleph-Resh-Daled acronym #general

Susan&David
 

To All:
I have access to a 100 year old Synagogue placque with the names of
women members. The names are given in Hebrew.
Several names are followed by the acronym/abbreviation
Bet-Aleph-Resh-Daled, with quote marks above the Resh thus:
Gitel bat R. Yosef Welinski Bet-Aleph-Resh-Daled.

Can someone tell me the meaning of Bet-Aleph-Resh-Daled in this context ?

Dear Fraida:

Two requests:

--Please tell us a little about where and when the WESTREICHs might have
lived. For that matter, where did your SCHALLs come from? There are

--Please register your interest in both families on the JewishGen Family
Finder. Far fewer Jewish genealogists read this discussion group than
the 200,000 who have registered their interests there. JGFF makes it
easy to contact other WESTREICH researchers directly.

Thanks!
