FW: Tailor and Cutter Academy, Soho #unitedkingdom

a1steve@...
 

Dear All

I've been trying to find if there is a database of Tailors in
London, particularly the East End, >from 1900 onwards. Today I
read an alumni magazine article that mentions the Tailor and Cutter
Academy, 42 Gerrard St, Soho.

It's first mentioned in the Jewish Chronicle in 1905 along with
The British Institute of Tailoring.

Does anybody know if there are archives for the Academy?

Many thanks

Re: Finding Grandfather's butcher shop in the 1920's Chicago #general

Hi, Avigdor,
Most city directories have two sections. The first is residents, alphabetical by
surname. But the second is businesses, sorted by category, rather like the
"Yellow Pages" here in the US.

You should be able to find some section called, "butchers" or "meat" or some such,
and make photocopies of those pages. If you're lucky, you'll be able to match the
name. If not, you could plot them on a map, see if any are in the area of town
you expect, and thus narrow the list.

Good luck!

CORAK, MOSKIVITZ & MARINOVITZ update - U.K, U.S and Australia #general

a1steve's rubbish removals <a1steve@...>
 

Dear All

Simon/Samuel CORAK (Simcha son of Abraham Asher) was born c.1840. His parents were
Abraham and Helen nee MOSKIVITZ.

He was married to Nettie nee MARINOVITZ. Simon/Samuel went to the U.S >from around
1870-1878 with two of their sons, born in England, on some records, and London on
others. Joseph Meyer born c.1870 and Meyer/Myer/Michael/Morris born c.1866/7.
Not sure if Nettie went to the US as well. I've not been able to find an accurate
match for the births nor a death for Nettie. There are no records of arrival using
that name for any of them to the U.S and Nettie is not mentioned in any U.S
documents. Simon's origin is Russia or Emperor Russia based on 1890/1891
Naturalisations for Joe and Meyer. A witness, Ben WIGONGSKY/WISHANSKY/WOCHANSKI
states that he was >from the Czar of Russia. Another witness was Nathan ISAACS.

There is also mention of two females >from England, Betty born around around 1872/3
and Rachel CORAK, born around 1875. Could be cousins or siblings. Both were placed
in Wards Island in NY. There were members of this family that came to Australia.
I've looked in the Australian Archives, but they mainly seem to be Yugoslav,
Austrian and Italian. There are 10 x CORAKs in the White Pages living in NSW, WA,
SA and Vic. I've found an Engagement notice for a SMITH and CORAK in Adelaide,
1918, and mention of a COREK Group in Brisbane, 1899. The surname has also been
spelt as CORACK, KOREK, KORECK and KORRICK.

Do any of these names sound familiar? Please contact me on a1steve@bigpond.com

Dear Group,

I would like to share good news with all of you, but especially with
those people who gave me good advise for finding my contemporary relatives.
I didn't have success straight away with my quest but a few days ago I finally
made contact with the family I was looking for. It is a very joyful time for
me.
I wish you all success in your research.

Dear Group,

A few days ago somebody had posted a link to Budapest registry pages on the
Mormon web site. Unfortunately I have deleted that letter and can't remember
the name. I can only thank that person this way for posting it on H-sig.

I want to tell all of you that I have found so much information on it, it has
helped my research immensely.
Thank you.

Budapest civil registration records 1895 to recent are now online; Clarification #hungary

ezwieback@...
 

This is a very useful addition to the online records. But the online =
access
to the images of the civil registrations (BMD) need some clarification =
of
content.
I checked about half of the 13 district listings for the births, =
marriages,
and deaths. It seems that most districts have births >from 1895 to only
about 1910, marriages to about 1940, and deaths to about 1970. Many
districts have very incomplete records; example, districts XII and XIII =
have
no birth records, and deaths only >from 1938 on.

Trains__of__the__death?= #hungary

Dear H-SIG-ers

For a long time there was a list on the WEB available about the "Death trains", the Hungarian transports between Mai 15 - July 20 1944 passing Kassa/Kosica in direktion of Auschwitz-Birkenau. the URL is/was http://www.kosice.sk/history/zidovsky/vlaksmrti.htm or http://147.232.145.11/history/zidovsky/vlaksmrti.htm. I tried it yesterday as well as today, under http://147.232.145.11/ the result is that Firefox can't build up any connection to the number or URL, for http://www.kosice.sk/ the result is

"404 - File or directory not found.
The resource you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable."

Does anybody has an explanation, what I am doing wrong or what happened to the site.

Re: Yiddish word for soured milk? #general

Jeffrey Kingsley
 

My Mom remembers going to the Lower East Side with my grandmother in the mid 1930s
and having sour milk and a knish. She doesn't remember called it anything but sour
milk. She as well as I agree that Shmetana in Yiddish is sour cream not sour milk.

We used shmetana this way. To a bowl of the stuff would be added some cream
cheese which was fairly solid and was called 'Polish cheese'...
