Waszawa:ul. Wielka #general

vangheluwe <vangheluwe-smietan@...>
 

Bonjour

On my map of Warsaw (1936-1941), the Wielka street finished on number 28, on
the corner with Swietokrzyska... Then I dont understand where was the Wielka
N°82 in 1929. Probably a mistake?

thanks for any help
please answer privately

Passengers arriving twice to EI #general

Saul Marks <saulmarks@...>
 

Dear All,

I, too, have had the same thing: my Tarakowskaja family (mother & 4
children) came into EI on 4 July 1910 & again on the same ship on 15 August
1910.

Can anyone provide any other explanations for this strange "behaviour"?

If you have the name of the court that he was naturalized in, you are better
off writing to them, than expecting anything >from the INS. Since it was
probably in Philadelphia, try writing to that court. The INS only got copies
of the naturalizations and the original records are better and more
complete. Make sure that you ask for *all* of the papers in the file,
including the application.

I went through a similar process with my grandfather and what I eventually
found out >from the application was that he came into the US as Shimon, but
we always knew him as Samuel. It made a world of difference.

[JCR] Re Old Synagogues in London #unitedkingdom

jeremy frankel
 

Dear Genners,

Re Mark Kornbluth's request, "I'm hoping someone may have some knowledge
regarding the Maiden Lane Synagogue...."

Further to the above request, the address Bill Gladstone gave is
still a valid one. I spent a wonderful day there last July going
through the Library and bookstore with David Jacobs, the Director
for the Reform Synagogues of Great Britain, and a distant (and very
tenuous) cousin by marriage.

Additionally, the Kelly's city directories usually devote several
pages to places of worship and this list also includes synagogues.
Using them one can get an idea of when the synagogues were in
operation.

Good luck,

Jewish Genealogy. The conference will be held >from July 20 to 25,
2003, at the JW Marriott Hotel in Washington D.C. Deadline for
submission of proposals is **Dec. 31, 2002** Because of the extensive
archival resources and tourist attractions in the Washington area, we
expect record attendance at this conference. It is therefore important
for attendees and speakers to plan early.

Presentation proposals must include the following six sections. If you
submit more than one proposal, please use a separate page for each
submission.

6. Audio-video and/or computer equipment required for the presentation

The presenters selected will receive free registration at the
conference. All presenters invited to the conference must agree to

Re: The TaZ #rabbinic

Larry Tauber <Ltauber@...>
 

This is in response to Leslie Reich's <lreich@tiscali.co.uk>
message of 2002.10.23:

1. Leslie Reich's statements concerning references to the use of
"Ashkenazi" and his cautions concerning Avot Atarah LeBanim are well
taken. (If possible, I request a summary of the dispute involving R.
Yitzchak and the MaHaRaShaL via private e-mail).

2. The following is a summary of the Jacobi materials. I present
them for the benefit of RavSig members without commentary on their
accuracy. Individuals who would like hard copies should notify me
separately.

The family heading is Halevi A. The tree is labeled by Jacobi
"Excusus A: The protohistoric Kalonymides-descent of the paternal
grandmother of both the MaHaRSCHA and the TaS... based primarily on
No. 29 of MaHaRSCaL's Responsa, on the Sefer haRokeach by R. Eliezer
Rokeach (1160/65-1230) ...and the (partly dubious) Sefer Mizraf
le-Chochma...and secondarily on works such as N.J. HaKohen's Otzar
haGedolim ... Lipschuetz A[vot] A[tarah] L[eBanim] and Shap[iro]
A[ncient]J[ewish] F[amilies]...." Jacobi refers to his introductory
notes which contain additional sources; however, I do not have a
copy of those notes.

The line of descent follows. Please note that the generation
listings are Jacobi's and that the dates are not actual dates but
are based on an absolute dating system he had devised and can vary
greatly for any individual. Going backward >from the TaZ:

Websites with german-english translation programs? #germany

Frank, Steven <Steven.Frank@...>
 

I am starting to plan a trip to Bavaria next summer to show my children
their grandparent's homes and hometowns, and visit some other towns their
ancestors came from. I have been in email touch with a few contacts in
Bavaria but must write via snail mail to others, and that means translating
my letters into German. Can anyone suggest websites that do German/English
translation credibly. Sadly I thought I had one but my German friend told
me it was way off.

I tried doing a search in the archives, since I know this was discussed a
while ago, but was unsuccessful. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Finally, be sure to read Michael Bernet's report on his travel in Bavaria
which is in our archives. My guess: search for:
"travel and Germany and information and Bavaria"
or perhaps:
"travel or trip and Germany and information and Bavaria"

Using the first syntax I found one guide posted by Mr. Bernet and
using the second I found a different one. Both are worth reading.

German SIG #Germany Websites with german-english translation programs? #germany

Frank, Steven <Steven.Frank@...>
 

I am starting to plan a trip to Bavaria next summer to show my children
their grandparent's homes and hometowns, and visit some other towns their
ancestors came from. I have been in email touch with a few contacts in
Bavaria but must write via snail mail to others, and that means translating
my letters into German. Can anyone suggest websites that do German/English
translation credibly. Sadly I thought I had one but my German friend told
me it was way off.

I tried doing a search in the archives, since I know this was discussed a
while ago, but was unsuccessful. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

MODERATOR NOTE: A search for "Translation" in the GerSig Archives at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.isa?jg~jgsys~sigspop
produced "A comparison of web-based translation tools" posted 2/17/01.

The same information (including many translation site URLs is on our
web site. There is an easy link at the GerSig home page and the direct
URL is:

GROUP TRIP TO LITHUANIA & NEARBY AREAS #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

Due to the interest expressed, I am organizing another group trip to
Lithuania - June 11 - 21, 2003. This will be the 10th group trip I have
organized and led to Lithuania.

Included - visits to the various Archives, synagogues, ghettos, Holocaust
sites, meetings with Jewish leaders, sight-seeing, guide/interpreters, and
two/three days to visit and spend time in your shtetl, or shtetlach of
interest. All meals (except l dinner & 2 lunches) are included, the finest
hotels (new & modern), modern bus with onboard toilet, and much more. I am
very familiar with the Archives, the archivists, Lithuania and the main
places of Jewish interest.

I do not organize these group trips as a profit-making endeavor. Everything is done "at cost" but in a deluxe manner. My main object is to encourage Jews to go back to their roots, to encourage them to research their ancestors and to enable them to see the rebirth of Judaism taking place in Lithuania.

IMPORTANT: This trip is not being sponsored or endorsed by the Litvak SIG. My previous trip participants can be contacted if references are desired.

For details and a full itinerary of the trip, contact Howard Margol.
