Very sad news - The passing of Paul Armony #general

Carlos Glikson
 

It is with deep regret and sadness that I have to inform the passing of our
dear friend and President Paul Armony.

Paul passed away yesterday, October 24, 2008 - 25 Tishri 5769 .

Paul Armony was the the founding President of the Sociedad Argentina de
Genealogía Judia, presently the Asociacion de Genealogia Judia de Argentina,
the driving force of AGJA, and the justly awarded editor of our - his -
publication, Toldot.

Paul was an example of knowledge, generosity and strength, and - as a
tireless, perseverant and devoted leader - resolutely impulsed and
organized the advance of Jewish genealogy in Argentina.

Paul is survived by his loving and caring wife Eva, his sons Ariel, Victor
and Jorge, that made him so proud, his brother Alberto and family, his two
daughters in law, and his five loving grandchildren.

His light and strength will always guide us on the path he set for us to
follow. We will all miss you, Paul.

Our warm regards and condolences go to the Armony family.

Paul Armony (z'l), President, Jewish Genealogical Society of Argentina #general

Stanley Diamond
 

Dear colleagues and friends in Jewish Genealogy.

The passing of Paul Armony is a loss for all of us who
share a passion in pursuing our family histories.

Because two of Paul and Eva Armony's three sons are
university professors in Montreal, he has been a regular
visitor to our city for many years. This has given me
personally and members of our society the opportunity
to come to know Paul and his family in in a way that
his email or posts could never do. It enabled us to see
and feel first hand the depth of his interests, the breadth
of his knowlege, the intensity of his spirit and the inner
drive that has made the Asociacion de Genealogia
Judia de Argentina a leader in making important Jewish
genealogical resources available to researchers around
the world. We are all diminished by the loss of this
most generous colleague and friend.

On behalf of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Montreal,
I would like to express our deepest sympathies to his
family and his many friends worldwide and particularly
in the Asociacion de Genealogia Judia de Argentina.

Pamula fasola tshoolent and bloomers #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Susan Goldsmith is trying to find out the meaning of the word pamula [Lithuania
yiddish] in this context:"the baker for the Jewish community had all her challahs
ready for Shabbat, and was about to open her shop,but realized she had no pamula"

Etymology is very tantalising especially when combined with genealogy and this
word "pamula" has got me thinking, but I have as yet no answer so I will consult
my yiddish experts. Remember it could have a totally different origin..read on.

Jake Goldstein wrote: "She may have realized that she had no fasola (beans) for
her tshoolent, so she ran out in her bloomers - the same bloomers she was going
to wear after opening her bakery."

Well fasola cannot be true yiddish as it is the same word in Arabic -fasoulia-
in German Fisolen and in Italian - fagioli. Many Arabic vegetable and fruitnames
come >from the Italian. So "fasola" must be of Ladino origin - and as for a
bloomer that is the name for an English loaf of bread. So we are getting in a
real tangle.

And tshoolent - it apparently comes >from "chaleur" so it looks as if we are back
toa kosher French cassoulet or bean stew:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cassoulet

"Unlike most of the vocabulary of Ashkenazic Jewry, the name cannot be traced to
either the German, Hebrew or Slavic components of the Yiddish vernacular .. but
the prevailing view is that the word hearkens back to the medieval French word
for heat (related to the modern French chaleur)..

Passenger Lists Additional Info #general

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

I was reminded by Saul Issroff that I should have mentioned in my prior
posts on passenger lists that there is a passenger records index which is on
the SA Jewish Rootsweb site which is a free on-line site:

http://chrysalis.its.uct.ac.za/CGI/CGI_ROOTWEB.EXE

These are taken >from the original manifests for outbound journeys to South
African ports at the British Archives at Kew. These records cover the
following years: 1895-1905, 1906-1916, 1916-1920, 1921-1924, and 1925.

They provide the same information as you would find on the original
manifests on the subscription site on findmypast.com. You will note that a
majority of the passengers are Litvaks, but there are those >from other
places as well such as the UK, Ukraine, Belarus, Poland, Russia, Rumania,
Germany, Austria, etc.

In addition, Saul mentioned that I should have included the fact that there
are inbound ships to the UK >from Europe as well as outbound ships >from the
UK mentioned in the Poor Jews' Temporary Shelter Database which will allow
the researcher to find manifests for those voyages. This I had mentioned in
the past, especially how important this type of information is in tracing
your ancestor's voyage to their new home.

Hope this is helpful.

For example: (1) Click the "Search" button on Ancestry's home page. (2)
In the box on the right click "Immigration & Emigration". (3) Navigate

1914 Chicago congregation #general

Miriam Eguchi <miriamj@...>
 

On my Aunt's marriage certificate (obtained >from Cook County vital records
office) it says she was married in 1914 by Rabe J. B. Kozvitsky of the
Congregation Anshe Baine Zitomir, 1530 W. Adgemont Ave. I imagine much of
the spelling is off, but I'm wondering if there's any hope of somehow
locating the religious record of this marriage.

I am trying to find out this Aunt's Hebrew name, which was not provided on
her gravestone nor at the funeral home.

All suggestions welcome.
