Re: CAIRO JEWS and Purchasing Books #general

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

It appears that many people do not know how to obtain a new book (or for
that matter an old book) such as the one I just posted about on Cairo Jews.
As a result of my posting, I received many inquiries asking me how and where
to get the book and the cost.

Please try any or all of the following things which apply wherever you may
happen live in the world:

1. In the case of the book I posted about, the publisher has a web site:

http://www.harpercollins.com/books/9780061453649/The_Man_in_the_White_Sharkskin_Suit/index.aspx

Sometimes, the publisher will give the buyer the option of purchasing an
E-Book version which you can pay for on-line and then print off on your own
printer.

2. You can also search for the author and/or the title of the book on any
of the major search engines such as Google. You will then be able to get
further information on the book and even reviews of it.

3. In addition, you can go to any one of the on-line book outlets or
bookstores and search there. However, if you are not familiar with what any
of these may be, just go to Google and plug in "books" and several will pop
up.

4. Or, you can contact you own local bookstore to see if they will carry
the book or can obtain the book for you through their distributor.

Last year, I went to my own local bookstore and asked if they had a
genealogically-oriented book I wanted and they did not. They agreed to get
it in. Later, they found that quite a number of others were also interested
in it. Sometimes, you have to alert your bookstore to new sources for sales
such as Jewish- or genealogy-themed publications.

5. You can contact the JewishGen Mall and see if they have the book or will
agree to carry it.

6. There is also "Avotaynu" which very often carries an interesting
selection of books and where I found a book about the Sephardic Jews of
Manchester.

Hope this clarifies how to purchase books!!!! Good luck!!!!

MODERATOR NOTE: The selection of books for inclusion in the JewishGen Mall
is often dictated by the publisher. Some publishers will not permit their
books to be carried by the Mall, despite our expressed interest. Still, the
selection of books in the Mall is impressive, and every purchase helps support

Sevenishok #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

Sevenishok is known today in Lithuania as Suvainiskis. Shlomo Kres
was born in Suvainiskis on 20 July, 1903. He arrived in Capetown,
SA on 13 November, 20 1927. He was related to my wife's family. Those
interested in learning more about the Kres family, please contact me
personally and not on the digest.

I do not know anything about the other names mentioned.

I'm posting this query for Rhonda Grosman who is, for =20

answers to her question, please write me privately and
I will make sure that the answers get to her.

SUBJECT: Sevenishok

I recently read the Sevenishok article by Dovid Katz & Yerakhmital Shon and
translated by Gloria Berkenstat Freund (>from the Memorial Book of Rokiskis).
Although it was very interesting and informative, no dates were included in
the historical information given about this shtetl.
For instance, the article states:

"Because of the hopelessness of a better future in Lithuania, the young
began to emigrate. Here, in South Africa, are found the following
Sevenishoker Jews: Sheike and Yerakhmial Gurman ne Kutzgal; Shlomoh Kres;
Mikhal Gershuni; Yerakhmial Shon; Henek Gafanowitz; Leibe-Leizer
Gafanowitz; Dovid Katz and Mrs. Nowitz, and also others."

Does anyone know approximately when these Sevenishoker Jews emigrated to
South Africa?

Dear Friends,

If anyone has been involved in helping to restore a cemetery in Poland I
would very much like to hear >from you. I have been reading the websites

I am especially interested in hearing >from anyone who worked on restoration
of the cemetery in Rozan, as this is near Zuromin, the town in which I am
interested.

I will be in Salt Lake City for the July conference and would be delighted

Where might I find things like: marriage records, birth records, burial

The library of the Leo Baeck Institute in New York (http://www.lbi.org) has
published lists of the members of the Jewish community in Berlin who were
eligible to vote (Verzeichnis der wahlfaehigen Mitglieder der Juedischen
Gemeinde zu Berlin) for 1886, 1907, 1910 and 1913.

The Jewish Museum in Berlin (http://www.juedisches-museum-berlin.de) has the
lists for 1871, 1883, 1889, 1892 and 1904 as well, but I couldn't find any
list for 1916 in German library catalogues. Hope this helps a little,
