The name of the town seems to indicate that you wrote

that word the "j" sounds like the "s" in "measure".

They may be referring to Cluj-Napoca, also frequently referred to as
Cluj. It is near the Hungarian border and at one time was part of
the Austro-Hungarian Empire and then was known as Klausenberg.

Romania, and to help with information about Klowz and its Jews? Here's the
story.

Re: S.S. NYASSA - Passenger Lists for New York, December 1940 #general

Peter Zavon <pzavon@...>
 

Since Omry clearly identified his location in his sig block as "Berlin,
Germany" I think it would be more helpful to respond with a resource that
is more accessible in Europe than is the Manhattan Branch of the US National
Archives and Records Administration.

Toward that end, I would refer Omry to the Family History Centers, operated
by the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints (usually called The
Mormons). Each Center is able to borrow microfilms >from the Family History
Library in Salt Lake City, and that library has copies of the microfilms of
all the indexes and passenger list holdings of the US National Archives.
The Mormons operate Family History Centers at thousands of locations
throughout the world including in Berlin, Germany. Their website at
http://www.familysearch.org/ has a search engine >from which specific
locations can be found.

I'm looking for the passengers' list of the S.S. Nyassa for her trip
from Lisbon to New York, arriving to New York around December 4, 1940.
Any suggestions where I could find it?

Thanks!

GenAmi issue 36, the articles #general

The articles of GenAmi 36

Yiddishland day on June 25th: as we did last year,
We are going to participate with some examples of research.
Last year the research concerned the VISSOTSKY family of Pinsk,
this year we'll show the research concerning the Zarembowitch
family >from Suwalki and Sejni, Poland. Everybody is invited.

Children and genealogy: genealogy begins to be explained at school.
In those times of lack of communication between the generations,
it is very useful. We think that we are the best to explain it to our
children and grand children. So, we propose an initiation for free to
children who are interested.

Masters of Language: the Darmesteter brothers and their rabbinical
Brandeis ancestry, a very interesting article about two geniuses,
written by Gregor Brand.

Canopy and genealogy, something really new! By Dr Olivier CAHEN

History of the Jewish community of Dubrovnik

The physicians of Niedernai, Nieder-Rhine: the first one was the Dr WOLFF,
whose son was Pr WOLFFSOHN of Fuerth, born 1754, related with the BEER
(Meyerbeer) family of Berlin. The other one concerns Dr CERF of London.

Alexandre (of Durmenach) "bourgeois" of Oltingue (Upper Rhine) in 1715
A descendant wrote that he came >from Spain, lived in Oltingue, very rich,
was agreed by two landlords then refused by the Province council.
Historians found documents concerning this story.

A book: "La Bible avait raison" (The Bible was right) by Joseph
Davidowitz, reveals the origin of the Hebrews, the first book which
propose a solution instead of asking questions.

Some questions asked to GenAmi: we answer to all the punctual questions we
receive. When they are too important, when they need some research to do,
We ask for a subscription of at least a support to our association.
When the information is too short, we cannot answer.
Some examples are given.

Come and visit GenAmi website
Acquisitions: Fleurs sefarades, la saga des Aboab -
Polish Jews - Prague Jewish Museum, exhibitions
Algeria: telephone directories (Alger 1961, Oran 1949...)

Anyone >from the Trenton area ever heard of a street that looks like

SD 4, sheet 10A, line 36, if that helps! The <bury> part looks fairly

asking experts #general

Anita <anitac47@...>
 

Perhaps you can tell me Is FURMAGER a jewish word and does it translate to
"Tax Farmer" or similar ?
I would suggest that you are more likely to explore the origins of the word
by talking to an (academic) expert in Medieval or Norman French.
Nick Landau made the above suggestion. I would further support it by saying
that emailing the random Slavic (or Medievel or Romance) language or
history departments is a good idea. I started doing this when I first
started researching my NADWORNY name. I also came across NADBORNY and I
didn't know if they were equivalents, meant the same or what (in Cyrillic,
NADWORNY looks like it starts with HAGB hence my concern). These very nice
people (in any university or college department I could find online) were
exceedingly gracious and helpful.
