I want to thank all of you who responded to my question about the
risk of using the swab on my 95 year old father. People were so
generous with their time to respond and the replies were very
helpful. Almost everyone thought the swabbing was gentle and would
not be a problem, so I feel ready to proceed.

Thank you.

Hi Beth

I am replying to the list because others may have the same concerns.
The collection process is no more harsh than having a toothbrush
slip onto the gums. In fact, it's probably less so, because there's
no bone immediately under the cheek.

"Jews of Poznan" catalog #general

Ruth and Bruce Lynn <lynn33@...>
 

Hello,

Have any of you been able to purchase a copy of the exhibition catalog:
"Between Tradition and Modernity: The Jews of Poznan in the 19th and 20th
Centuries" by Tamara Sztyma-Knasiecka? Edward Luft wrote about it in the
Spring 2007 issue of Avotaynu, on p. 71.

I tried both e-mail addresses he listed, asking whether it's still
available, and whether a US check for $11.00 would be acceptable. One
address bounced and there was no reply >from the other.

Or do any of you know of a library in the Boston area that has purchased
this book? Brandeis does not seem to own it.

Thanks very much.

Belarus Location - Bartenoff? #belarus

Gloria Berkenstat Freund
 

I've recently received documents >from France about a likely relative, born
in "Russia" in 1889, at a place spelled "Bartenoff" or "Bartinoff," Vitebsk.
I haven't been able to locate a town spelled anything like Bartenoff in
Vitebsk gubernia or, for that matter, in Belarus. Does the name ring a bell
for anyone - perhaps a village, district, street, condo?

YUDIWICZ from David Horodok #belarus

I am researching the name Yudovich/Yudowicz >from David Horodok. My
grandfather, Usher, (known as Usher the Perehodzshik) supposedly owned ships. I
can not find him or his family listed in the Belarus records. Does anyone know
of any resources to find any information regarding vital records or how to
find out information about the ships, sailings >from the Pripich in the late
1800's or maritime records?

Thanks for your help.

photo a grave? #general

shirley@...
 

I am hoping that someone near Lynn, Massachusetts can photograph a
gravestone for me. I have full details of the location in the Lynn City
Lodge Cemetery, of North Reading, MA.

An emailed photo showing front and back sides of the stone or marker
would be perfect!

Contact me directly, thanks.
