Translation of Yiddish in ViewMate #general

Carol Rombro Rider
 

I have been given a book on the Lodz Ghetto written by Shlomo Frank (also
known as Frankel) printed in Israel in 1958. The forward is written by Nachman
Blumental.

There is a short 7 line inscription in the front of the book in Yiddish. If
someone could please translate the Yiddish for me it can be viewed on
Viewmate directly at

http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=8134

or you can go to Viewmate and look at VM 8134.

Many thanks in advance,

Where to deposit German-Jewish personal effects #general

Justin Kirk Houser <jkhouser84@...>
 

Good evening, list members,

I was talking with a genealogist friend of mine today, aged 86. She said
that her brother-in-law was a German Jewish immigrant to Pennsylvania,
USA. In short, he and his wife had no children and she has inherited some
of his personal effects, letters and some photographs, etc. Apparently,
some of these documents pertain to his father, who was killed by the Nazis,
and other family members in Germany. I believe she said his father was a
doctor >from Freiburg. The name was Pons in this country but it was
shortened >from another surname, which she knows, but I did not write down
in our conversation.

My friend would like to know of any organizations where she might donate
these items so that they would be properly archived, accessible to
researchers and so that this history would be preserved. I do not know the
extent of what she has or its details; I told her that I would ask for
advice >from this group, as I'm sure you will know good places where this
sort of information can be deposited for present and future generations to
access.

Minchah Ketannah #rabbinic

roe kard
 

I am trying to locate a copy of a book: "She'elot U'Teshuvot:
Minchah Ketannah" written by R. Jechiel HaLevi ROSENFELD, Rabbi in
"Winniki," published in Lemberg in 1892. I know a copy existed in
the 60s, possibly in Hechal Shlomo in Jerusalem as my parents Z"L
copied the introduction, which finally, after 30 years of looking
for it, I have found while doing a very intense search through their
remaining papers. Thank you.

B'shalom,

Louis COHEN [born abt 1795] of London, his family and servants #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

re the recent discussion on servants in Jewish
households - I have just come across
(serendipituously) Louis COHEN [merchant] born in the
City of London in 1795 - he has a wife, Floretta
[1811], ten children and five female servants listed
in the 1851 census:

Sons: Henry Louis 1828; Lionel Louis 1832; Alfred
Louis 1837; Nathan Louis 1848; Isaac Louis & Benjamin
Louis [twins?] 1845

Daughters: Adelaide 1831; Julia 1834; Henrietta 1838;
Ellen 1844.

By 1861, his wife has died and he now has four female
servants and a male servant. He and his eldest son
Alfred are stockbrokers.

By 1871 Louis has died but Alfred Louis has continued
the tradition of having many servants. He had a French
wife and a one year old son. The cook was German, the
ladies maid was French - the butler and two other
maids were English. In 1891, Alfred has a wife, three
children as well as a butler, a footman, and ladies
maid, two housemaids, a kitchenmaid and a cook. In
1901 he still had seven servants although the family
had downsized.

Brother Benjamin Louis is not to be out done - in 1881
he also had 7 servants! Henry Louis - also a member
of the stock exchange was married and lived modestly
with only three servants in 1871.

U.S. & Foreign City Resources #general

Joseph Fibel <jfibel@...>
 

Genners:

Several posters have requested information about early data in U S cities.

There are several possibilities. The first is to call the city public
library and ask for a reference librarian and ask for suggestions. At the
same time ask the Reference Librarian if there is a City or County Historian
and ask his/her name and phone # or E-mail number and send an inquiry that
way. Almost everyplace has a historian who takes pride in answering such
questions. .

In addition, for the Jewish Genealogy Seminar in 2000, Hal Bookbinder and
Joan Rimmon made up a listing of over 800 community history books arranged
by State and City. Subsequently, this list was transferred to the IAJGS site
and is on line there. Hal has added several additional books to this list.
This site is iajgs.org. Click on the home page and then click on Resources
(on the left side of the page) and click on North American Community Books
and look up the community of interest to find a books of your Jewish
community Most of these books can be obtained through your local public
library on inter-library loan.

Also don't forget local JGS's where you may get some look up help.
Addresses, phone #'s and e-mail addresses for JGS's are also available on
the iajgs site. You can use foreign JGS in the same way.

Unable to find ASBON on any naturalization or US census records. If anyone

Seeking PoT submitter Rakhel FELHENDLER in Israel #general

NATALIE LAMB
 

Dear Fellow Genners,

Again I have to ask for some help, as I am unable to read the Hebrew script
on Pages of Testimony.

There were two PoT's submitted by Rakhel FELHENDLER in Israel for Meir
NIEWOLSKI born in Kolo, but the spellings were translated into English as
NIWOLSKI for the testimony submitted on 26/6/1955 and as NEUVELSKI for the
one submitted on 21/11/1956.

Either way, although the details vary somewhat between the two forms, I
believe that they refer to one and the same person, and that he was my
father's first cousin.

If there is anyone who recognises the submitter's name and knows her or her
descendants, I would be very grateful if you would kindly contact me
privately. I am able to scan and email copies of the PoT's if this would be
of any assistance.

Any help would be much appreciated.
