Yizkor Books in Print #latvia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I am extremely excited to announce the "kick off" of a new Yizkor Book
Project initiative called "Yizkor Books in Print". The idea behind this
project is to make hard copies of books that have been completely translated
in the Yizkor Book Project and make these books be available for purchase by
the descendants of these communities, university and synagogue libraries and
museums.

This project could not have come into existence had it not been for Joel
Alpert who has kindly agreed to be the Project Advisor for this enterprise.
The next stage is to look for people to fill the tasks required in this
project. If you have a background in the editing and graphics fields and,
especially, if you have had previous experience in preparing books for
publishing, we'd be very pleased to hear >from you.

If you are interested in receiving further details of the people needed for
the project, please click on this link
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html and if you feel able to assist,
contact Joel using the link appearing on this page.

Yours,
One very excited Yizkor Book Project Manager,

NYC Office of Vital Records: challenges getting a record #general

Renee Steinig
 

My effort to obtain a 1979 death record >from the NYC Office of Vital Records has
met with repeated rejections:

- Original request was returned six weeks later with a notice indicating that I had
failed to enclose a copy of photo i.d. (Unlikely, but I resent.)

- Second request was returned another six weeks later because my license wasn't
current. (It was current at the time that I copied and mailed it!)

- Third request was returned another six weeks later, again with a claim that I
failed to enclose a copy of photo i.d. This time there's no question: the copy of
a current, signed photo i.d. (a NY State Driver License) that I had sent was
returned along with my application and check!

Has anyone else had similar difficulties recently?

Re: Why St. Louis? #general

Frank Schulaner
 

BJ Rudman asked what might've brought his gg'father to that city. Must have been
because the 1904 Olympics and Judy Garland's Fair were scheduled together.
Understandable the building and recruiting started as early as 1895, the year
of Sol Rudman's aliyah. St.Louis had to be aware of Chicago's story; their 1892 Fair
wasn't ready to open till 1893.

I have been on that site many times and never saw the photo or the article.
