Could someone please help me with the following.
A relative had his barmitvah about 1928 at Avenue M Synagogue/Temple.
I have not been able to discover where Ave M is (which burrough) of New
York?.
Flatlands neighborhood (south of Flatbush) in Brooklyn.

Does it still exist or where could I look for records of members in 1928?
I doubt it would have used the term "synagogue". Look for "Congregation xxx".
If you have the precise address, you could check on http://local.live.com
Failing this, you could check with the NYC Dept of Finance for tax
records at this address.

Another went to the 114th Street Synagogue. Again does this exist or where
would I search for records?
Looks like an address in the borough of Queens [since Manhattan would have
a prefix of West or East].

Again, you'd need the precise address.

There is a possibility the synagogue could be listed in one of the
volumes of the American Jewish Committee archives (American Jewish
Yearbook) at www.ajcarchives.org [you have to use cookies on your

The total death toll among Jewish soldiers in the German army was
about 12,000. This represented a mortality rate slightly higher
than the rate for the army as a whole. Note that Jews constituted
around 1% of the population of Germany at the time, so 200,000 (of
about 50 million) would be too high a number.

The death toll was horrific, no matter how one calculates it. The
RjF book--like the RjF itself--was created as documentation in
response to the anti-semitic "Back-stab" accusation that the Jews
had sabotaged the war effort. To little avail, of course...

My off the top of my head guess of 20,000 dead = 10% of a guesstimate
of 200,000 Jews serving, was intended to represent the figures
for all the Central Powers, including Austria-Hungary (and even
Turkey--after all, at least one of the pioneers of the Palestine
yeshuv served in the Turkish army!). Thus 12,000 is too low for all,
but maybe 20,000 is too high?

IAJGS Conference in NY #general

Susana Leistner Bloch
 

Just returned >from New York where I attended the IAJGS Conference.

My advise to all is that they make sure to attend future conferences
so they will be able to compare them with the next conference the New
York JGS hosts!!!

And to all JGS that will host future conferences: now you have a
perfect model to help you plan yours!

The Conference ran as smoothly as melted butter and as crisp as a
croissant. A veritable feast!!! Congratulations to all involved,
specially Linda Cantor, Hadassah Lipsius, Gloria Freund, and Roni
Liebowitz.

I have recently received information about my grandmother's family >from a
distant cousin and since it has been a number of years since I contacted
anyone looking for Anusewitz >from the Family Finder, I thought perhaps a
general query might help me.

My great grandfather was Abraham ben Nachman Zvi ha Cohen ANUSEWITZ born in
Warsaw circa 1872 died in NYC 1915. His brother Nathan owned a jewelry story
on Clinton St. in Manhattan until the late 1930's.

His parents were Necha Raizel bat Daviel Zev (no family name) and Nachman
Zvi bar Natan Nate haCohen ANUSEWITZ (per tombstones at Beth David Cemetary
in Elmont NY) they were both >from Warsaw.

Many in the family began using the name ANNIS upon arrival. Another realtive
changed the name to ARLEN.

If any of these names sound familiar to you, please respond privately.

Re: Obtaining photocopies of Vsia Rossia (1895 Russian Business Directory) #general

Alan <ahssha_at_rcn_dot_com@...>
 

Try the spelling Vsia Rossiia. That works in WorldCat. The accession
number there is 30432393.

Alan

I've searched for "Vsia Rossia" and 1895 Russian business
directory in the Library of Congress catalog, the NY Public Library
catalog and WorldCat and I can't seem to find it. Does anyone have a
call number handy or some advice on how to search for it?

currently located directly on Avenue M. Zip codes to check are 11230,
