I had family living in Allen Rents in 1816 and I had no idea
where this was until I found it on a map on this web-site.
So it may be of help to others.

Surname: HIRSCHFELD/DEERFIELD in USA #general

Joseph Hirschfield
 

Since the name Hirschfeld in German is translated in English as deer and
field, I have wondered if there were people who Americanized their
European name Hirschfeld into Deerfield. Does anyone know of a Deerfield
family who had Jewish origin?

Tennessee Naturalizations #general

mbrichman@...
 

I am interested in finding out where I can get information about
naturalizations for residents of the State of Tennessee during
the early 20th century.

For pre-1906 - I am familiar with the book "Davidson Co., TN Naturalization
Records 1803-1906" by Mary Sue Smith, although it appears that the records
available to Ms. Smith were incomplete - it listed one of my relative's
Declaration of Intention, but no indication about his petition or naturalization
certificate. Are those records missing for the 1901-1906 period?

Post-1906 - Where would those records be kept? The National Archives has a
listing for naturalization records in the Western District -
Memphis area - but not the other parts of the state (I am interested
in Nashville and certain southern counties). I saw one list that
suggested that Tennessee naturalizations may be found in Alabama court
records. Is there other information out there about (1) which court(s)
granted these naturalizations, and (2) whether those
records are held in a National Archives branch?

Thank you.

Black Bread Disease #general

Jay Paul <jpaul54@...>
 

In response to Howie Axelrod's question about his grandfather >from
Russia dying of "Black Bread Disease," my guess is that this is due to
ergot poisoning, a mold that infested rye grain and was a serious
problem in Europe for hundreds of years. There is some historical
information available at:

http://www.moldreporter.org/vol1no6/moldHist.

This mold infected rye grain, as I've mentioned, and produced a toxin
that remained in the kernel when it was then ground and made into
bread. Those who were poor and lived primarily on rye bread were most
susceptible. Children were most likely to die, and survivors frequently
suffered both longstanding physical and mental illness as a result of
this unsuspected poison.

much information as possible in the Introduction. You have to click
on the Database name in the list of databases and you can read the

Dave Fox Visit to Los Angeles and JGSLA-Belarus Interest Group #belarus

GDLProject@...
 

Dear Belarus SIG members:

Dave Fox, the Founder and former Coordinator of the Belarus SIG, will be
in Los Angeles on Sunday, October 23rd, and has made time available to
meet with the JGS Los Angeles in an informal gathering. This is an exciting
opportunity to learn first hand about the ongoing projects of the Belarus SIG.
Of course we will also be able to meet each other and explore possibilities
for a local face-too-face Belarus interest group. Our plan is for this
ongoing local group to explore research projects and have more experienced
Belarus researchers mentor those with less experience. In the future,
we will be organizing other interest groups.

The first step is to determine how many people are interested and able to
attend the Belarus interest group meeting on Sunday afternoon, October 23rd -
and based on that, we can arrange for a meeting place. We will be gathering
information >from people in the Los Angeles area and summarizing it to share
with each other at the meeting.

You do not have to be a member of the Jewish Genealogical Society of
Los Angeles in order to participate in this meeting, but you are
invited to join.

Please respond to David Hoffman, at DBH12345@aol.com.

Member, Board of Directors, JGSLA
