Research Libraries Tell Publishers to Drop Their Lawsuit Against The Internet Archive #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

In March, I posted about the Internet Archive suspending its waitlists for over the 1.4 million books their lending library by creating a National Emergency Library without joining a waitlist.  Due to the Coronavirus  outbreak public libraries are closed and this facilitates access to read while keeping safe.  Now publishers are suing the Internet Archive saying the  Internet Archive's Open Library and National Emergency Library are "not libraries."  The Association of Research Libraries has put out a statement asking publishers to drop this counter-productive lawsuit (https://www.arl.org/news/association-of-research-libraries-urges-end-to-litigation-against-internet-archive/), especially since the Internet Archive has shut down the National Emergency Library.

 

The Association of Research Libraries stated,Over the past four weeks, IA’s Open Library has circulated more than 400,000 digital books without any user cost—including out-of-copyright works, university press titles, and recent works of academic interest—using controlled digital lending (CDL). CDL is a practice whereby libraries lend temporary digital copies of print books they own in a one-to-one ratio of “loaned to owned,” and where the print copy is removed from circulation while the digital copy is in use.

If you lived in Manhattan or the Bronx, it was just as easy to go to NJ. My grandfather in the 1940s bought plots from
Beth Israel cemetery, Woodbridge NJ and he lived in the Bronx.

My mother is doubting its authenticity because her family lived in New York and were too poor to afford the nice size stone. Does anyone know why New York families were burying their family members in New Jersey?

Re: parents as "cousins" on Ancestry.com #dna

"Endogomy" (Wikipedia):  Endogamy is the practice of marrying within a specific social group, caste, or ethnic group, rejecting those from others as unsuitable for marriage or other close personal relationships. Endogamy is common in many cultures and ethnic groups.

This makes the DNA match calculations very complicated.  

The well known author Maurice Lamm has an interesting article on Prohibited [Jewish] Marriages at the Chabad.org site that I found very informative:

Re: SAM WEISSBERGER - U.S. Social Security Applications and Claims, 1936-2007 #general

Renee Steinig
 

There is a naturalization record on Family Search for a Sam Weissberger born 18 Oct 1878:

According to the record, he was born in H. Rokito, Hungary, and immigrated in 1906. Googling suggests that this place may now be in Slovakia; I couldn't find it in JewishGen's Gazetteer.

A death record of a Samuel Weissberger who died on 15 July 1946 is also on FamilySearch.  According to the record, his parents were David and Sarah.

Nava, do you know your great-grandmother's birth place? Or her parents' names?

Re: Does anyone know any survivors from Krinki/krinik #poland

@murfisto
 

i would be interested in joining a Krinki "group". Our family's soul seems to have been derived from the Krinki experience, good or bad. i have some experiences i would be willing to share relating to Krinki's history, especially of early 1900's.


Re: Does anyone know any survivors from Krinki/krinik #poland

@murfisto
 

My father's family were also tanners from Krinki. here's a letter i sent to another person who responded to my inquiry.
Hi there, My return mail will take some time as i just had surgery to two damaged fingers so instead of very fast typing, which i am capable of, i will be typing "hunt and peck" style. 
My father's family history dated (without any documentation) to well before the middle of the 19th century in that town's primary industry, leather tanning. Dad was one of the younger sons of eleven  plus 3 daughters with an ultra-orthodox attitude toward Judaism(it seemed he was actually obsessively religious from a wide variety of reports) who knew only the leather whip to use to discipline his children. All of the family worked in the leather factories and it must have been terrible work with all the chemicals being used at the time. Dad's older brothers joined the revolutionaries (whites, not reds) and by 1914, were wanted by the reds or by the tsar's army so they escaped through Germany to ship out to America. three of his sibs became fruit peddlers in northern New Jersey (horse-drawn wagons) and had a wagon waiting for my father when he could escape, too. Gradually, all if his sibs emigrated except for his eldest sib, Frumke, who was, against their father's wishes, finally brought out of Krinki, with her 8 children AND her parents, very late in the 1930's, to board ship for the US. They were refused entry into the US as Roosevelt claimed our immigration quota from eastern Europe (substitute "Jews" for eastern Europe) was full so they were admitted into Canada(Montreal) where they established themselves in various jobs, including a chocolate factory! A couple of years later, mu g'parents were moved tom live with their eldest sons in New Jersey. Within 2 years, both of my g'parents died. It is claimed their death was due to malnutrition as my g'father refused to eat food at his children's tables as it was not fit (adequately kosher) to eat and could not be dissuaded from that idea. As i said earlier, he certainly was religiously obsessed.
Any way, their stories are interesting to few as it is not all that unusual but i and my 6 sibs are products of that history. 
Google Maps does show Krinki as sort of a widening of the road with a few buildings still there. Since the holocaust, i understand there are no records remaining of its residents. those records would have been kept in the schuls.
Our extended family have done their own diaspora with some in Israel and other scattered around the US. Our family name in Krinki was Sturmach; changed somewhere/somehow to Stollman. I hope i have not overly bored you with this superficial photograph of my family.
i hope you are and stay healthy. I am open to further conversations.
Murray

i sent you an email, a copy of one i sent to another responder to my inquiry about family connections to the town named Krinki. I hope to hear back from you.


Re: parents as "cousins" on Ancestry.com #dna

I was always told that my maternal grandparents were cousins, but I don't know to what degree.  I was told that my grandfather lived with my grandmother's family when he first emigrated to America at about age 13 as his parents did not emigrate.  I have no idea if I will ever be able to verify any of this.  I assume city directories and/or census might help, but so far no luck with census and no access to NYC city directories in the appropriate years.

You need to get access to Ancestry.com as they have a lot of information on this person.  He was married to Sadie and lived in Manhattan.  He was born in Budapest he says.  Appears he died in July 1946 and is buried in New Jersey at Riverside Cemetery.  His death certificate is on FamilySearch transcribed ... see below

As for the questions you asked the Social Security application and file should be available at the Social Security Administration.  You might have to file under the Freedom of Information Act which might be somewhat time consuming.  The application costs about $25 but I am not sure if you ask for a search for the claim file.

If this is the right person it looks like the wife died three years later and is buried with him.  Use Findagrave.com and search for them at RIverside in Saddlebrook, New Jersey.  No pictures posted.

My guess is that there was a child making a claim against the father's Social Security if in fact a claim was made in the 1970s.

Ancestry by the way shows the claim date as Aug 5, 1946.

This raises a few questions:
1. I didn't find any place where I could see the original. DOES ANYONE
KNOW WHERE I COULD SEE IT?
2. The death claim was submitted on 24th September 1976 over 20 years
after the actual death ( 15th July 1946) .I believe this is a transcription
error . What do you think? (The only thing that encouraged me in submitting
a claim is that there was a wife or a child that survived him.)

Re: Does anyone know any survivors from Krinki/krinik #poland

My wife’s father’s family came from Krynki and later moved to Bialystok.  Their name was Suchonitzki.  We visited Krynki in 2004 or 2005.  We had family photographs that were taken in the cemetery of Krynki.  When we were there, we could figure out approximately where her ancestor’s grave was by comparing the background, which had not changed, and some distinctive headstones, which were all pretty much destroyed.  It was harder because of the coat of snow on the ground while we were there.  Our guide talked to a local who said that many of the gravestones had been used to build a community center not far away. 

 

We don’t know what relatives remained in Krynki during the war and who survived.  My wife’s father moved to Israel in the 30’s prior to the war. 

 

I responded to jschonholz with my email address.  If people interested in this topic will write to her, perhaps she can start an email group to correspond among ourselves.  When we have such a group I can send some old family photographs of Krynki and our photographs from our trip there in 2004 or 2005.

Re: Institutionalized relative - death date and burial location #general

Mike Grossman
 

Until recently, I believed that my maternal grandfather (Abraham Berkowitz) had been institutionalized in Central Islip State Hospital (one of the 4 state hospitals like Pilgrim). His name appeared in the 1930 US Census as an "inmate," and he appeared in the NY Death Index with a date of death (1931) and a certificate number. I called the Suffolk County "clerk" who told me that they don't have records of the CISH. Death Certificates are held by the NY State Dept of Health, Vital Records Section, Albany, NY. I completed the form for the death certificate, paid $22, and mailed it in early June. I probably won't hear from them for months. BUT, I have since discovered that he died in 1916, so I was trailing the wrong Abraham Berkowitz. That's all I know.
Good Luck, MikeG

It is more often about the burial or social society that they belonged to.  Remember burial was not permitted in Manhattan so it would have been Queens or Brooklyn or New Jersey.  I would look to see if they are in a burial society plot and see if you can find any information about that society. 

In my research I found a ladies organization in the Bronx that had its burial plot in central New Jersey.  I knew the woman lived in the Bronx and I would never have guessed she was buried where she is.

My family is the other way.  They always lived in Northern New Jersey but the temple they belonged to had a plot in Brooklyn.  So from around 1900 to the 1940s all the family members were buried in Brooklyn.

Dutch ship "Boskoop" manifests for 1937/38 #germany #latinamerica

mmliffmann@...
 

I am fairly certain my father, Herbert Liffmann, and his siblings were aboard the Boskoop, a mixed cargo vessel, that sailed from Europe to the west coast of South America in the 1930s. I am not certain where they embarked but suspect, The Netherlands, since they lived close to the border in the area of Monchengladbach. They emigrated to Cali, Colombia by way of Buenaventura. I have tried contacting possible Dutch and Colombian sources but to no avail. The best I have done so far is access the Panama Canal Records and have four transits for the ship during those two years. Any suggestions? Much appreciated. Mike

I’m fairly sure that most of the marriages within a family are arranged. My mother was supposed to have an arranged marriage with a first cousin. Unfortunately he was unable to leave Europe before the Holocaust.
