A clarification here....

Jeffrey is not referring to COPIES of records ordered >from the Polish
State Archives which are more than 100 years old.

His reference is to EXTRACTS of records ordered at Polish Consulates
or Embassies. As I recall, the rate of $35 is the one used by the
Polish Consulate in New York and may be similar at other Consulates
in the U.S. Researchers should be aware that it is often worthwhile to
request such EXTRACTS directly >from Civil Records Offices who may
send it directly without charge or may send it via the Consulate route
with a cost similar to the one mentioned by Jeffrey.

For further information on ordering directly >from the Civil Records
Offices, consult Warren Blatt's PolandV Infofile on JewishGen.

Warsaw Cemetery Records #poland

CAROLYN AND RICHARD ROSENSTEIN <KENTERWAY@...>
 

I also sent money for both extracts and photographs of 4 tombstones. About a
week ago, I did received the photographs - which are great - efforts were
made to highlight what is engraved on the tombstones - but I haven't
received the extracts - so I sent them a fax yesterday thanking them for the
photographs and telling them that I had not yet received the extracts - that
I did want and had paid for. I'll see what happens.

Dear Ronald,

the way I understand "geshtalt" is a figure, a personality. I checked
this with my friend who is a Yiddish teacher and Yiddish radio announcer.
hope this will help.

Are there other possiblities? I've an otherwise unidentified Itka on

Edith or Etta?

Surnames #general

Rlberliner@...
 

Many of us do not have time to read each and every listing on the Digest
every day and browse for the sender's name and the surnames being
searched. Lately, it seems the searched names are not listed at the very
bottom of the posting.

Please list the surnames you are searching by showing them in all caps and
the original location in lower case, as it will be most helpful for those
of us who have to browse quickly. Our eyes seem to automatically stop at a
familiar name.

Many thanks.

points out, identifying only surnames in capital letters allows readers to
quickly find surnames of interest to them. The JewishGen Family Finder
(JGFF) is still the best way to ensure that fellow genealogists (and other
people who may be interested in the same surname and/or ancestral town)
will be able to find you.

We have been informed that many users of America Online (AOL) did not receive the Litvak SIG Digest of October 23.

Other AOL users did not receive other digests, such as JewishGen.

So that this significant block of subscribers to the LitvakSIG Digest will
not lose additional messages, we will wait until we believe that AOL has
fixed this problem, and then we will resume sending messages.

Actually, this message is a test of sorts. If AOL subscribers (including your moderator) receive it, then we will know the problem has been solved and the Litvak SIG Digest will be able to resume in a day or so.

Thank you all for your patience,

Alternatives of the name "Chonan" #general

Jordan Konisky <konisky@...>
 

I am tracing a Litvak family member who lived in the Vilna area in in
the mid 1850's. As listed on his daughter's death certificate, his
first name was "Chonan." I have found a record that lists a "Khone"
with the same surname (Ryndzium). Would "Khone" be a reasonable
equivalent to "Chonan"? Any chance that either would be equivalent
to "Solomon"? Any help would be grealty appreciated.

Warsaw cemetery project #poland

Hello all,

Are the records >from the Warsaw Cemetery project also being fumigated at
present? I sent a fairly substantial money order to Poland back in June,
for information and photographs on 6 graves in the cemetery listed through
JRI-Poland, and still haven't heard. Is this normal, or part of a normal
delay? Or should I do something else at this point?
