"What is Kipret Marsh" (Pripet Marsh) #general

On Aug. 25, 2006, Marilyn Feingold asked " What is
Kipret Marsh"

<<I just spoke with the widow of a possible relative. She said her
father in law was born in Kipret which is on the Russian/Polish
border. Her husband also mentioned lots of marshes there. Does this
register with anyone?
I've looked in '"Where once we Walked " and couldn't find it."

I think Marilyn either misheard what the widow said,
or the widow mis pronounced the name: "Pripet"

The famous Pripet marshes refers to a vast
waterlogged area in southern Belarus and northern
Ukraine.

Ms. Feingold should do a google search for "Pripet
Marsh" or "Pripet Marshes. The online Encyclopedia
Brittanic offers an extensive description of the area.

Old Photos available - PRATT, BUCHBINDER, MILLNER #germany

Dear Friends,

Having been left about 6 kilos of family photos, one year later I am still
trying to make my way through the pile and to match photos with people. It
is an endless and very frustrating task as most photos do not have any
markings on them.

Among the photos are many who are probably friends of the family. I would
like to return them to the families.

If any of the following are people >from your family, please let me know.

Mirjam MILLNER (photo taken 1934)

Selma (maybe Seline) BUCHBINDER - address on back - Schuetzenstr. 9, Frankfurt

Evelyn PRATT - signed December 1, 1928

I did not mean to extend that date. I was referring to any photographs or other
material on the web site, which I was suggesting should not extend beyond 1910.

Victoria Bennett wrote: <"This proposal sounds as if succesful it could advance

I have 19th century-American photographs and other materials that I know would
make an academic drool and I suspect many other of you do too. One of my aims
in making this suggestion was to get that material out there, so that academics
may know what we have.

John Paul Lowens is quite right that "All the endorsements of well-meaning
proposals are meaningless without volunteers."

As he was at the Early American SIG meeting at the NY conference, perhaps he will
remember that I already have volunteered to be Web Leader of the Richmond, VA
site -- PROVIDED there is a Web Master who has the technical know-how to actually
put my Internet-ready material on site. [I am Web Leader of the SKALA site at
<http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/SkalaPodol/>
I work with a Web Master who is the tech-maven. I collect the material, restore
the photos, write the text, etc. and the Web Master puts it on-site.]

If there is anyone out there who will work with me as Web Master on the Richmond,
VA site, I will contact Susanna Bloch (head of Shtetlinks) and get started on
Richmond, so that it may serve as a template for the other Early-American Jewish
communities.

I also said that I would work on the MANHATTAN site, but that undoubtedly will
be massive and requires more thought before any luckless soul volunteers to head
it.

I probably will get clobbered for this next suggestion: I always have felt that
the name SHTETLINKS is inappropriate, as the word SHTETL relates to European
towns. It does not fit Sefardim, Early Americans, and others whose ancestors
are not >from small European towns. Perhaps the site name should be changed to
ANCESTRAL TOWNS or WHERE THEY ONCE LIVED.

Helene Kenvin Florida <hekenvin@bellsouth.net>

MODERATOR NOTE: As per my message about the improved ( except for its unfortunate
name ) ShtetlSeeker, posted to the GerSIG Forum last week, I agree with Helene's
last point.

However, before picking a name it is necessary to find a volunteer webmaster
and project coordinator. JewishGen V.P. for Research Joyce Field has written
in support of this concept. Perhaps she might follow up with a list of steps
needed in order to start work on this proposal. JewishGen has guidelines
both procedural and technical which must be understood and followed.

Re: PERITZ family from Breslau/midwife book, 1846-72 #germany

As Roger Lustig notes, the midwife book in question can only contain a small
fraction of the births in Breslau during 1846-1872. The preceding set of
birth records on microfilm are central records & contain mention of several
midwives, even during the same year, and Breslau's Jewish population was not
decreasing during this time. The majority of my mother's ancestors >from this
period were >from Breslau; it may be a coincidence only, but this midwife
served the more devout of my relatives' families, while the births of the
more Reform-minded/assimilated family members of the same period are not to
be found there.

Improving Early American website #usa

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

I have been reading with interest the discussion following Helene Kenvin's
excellent suggestions towards developing a web site.

My suggestion is that it cover the appropriate Early American period and
stop at 1870. Anything later is covered by other groups and is not
considered by historians as Early American.

The web site should be more on the level of a Litvak SIG site rather than a
smaller shtetlink site.

The coverage of the site can be possibly divided in the various historical
timeframes of this large chunk of America history such as:

1. Pre-Colonial

2. Colonial Period and Revolutionary War (13 original colonies)

3. War of 1812

4. Age of Expansion (westward exploration and settlement)

5. Civil War and Reconstruction (movement and resettlement, expansion)

In this way, individuals who are primarily interested in research in a
particular timeframe can focus on one of these areas.

You can also have general areas of research such as cemeteries, synagogues,
orphan asylums, landsmannschaftns, etc.

There are a number of excellent organizations which have loads of research
available for the Early American period and they should be approached about
working with the Early American SIG, i.e., American Jewish Historical
Society.

Also, there are already many references on JewishGen to Early American Jews,
i.e., early Czechoslovakian Jews,
http://www.jewishgen.org/BohMor/early_immig.html , one of whom, Joachim
GANS, came as early as 1585 to Roanoke, North Carolina.

It seems to be a matter of going through what is already available and
putting it into a suitable format on a web site. All the best,
