mezuza on angle #general

curwin <curwin@...>
 

While the posted question didn't seem to have anything to do with genealogy,
I think I can provide an answer with some connection to genealogy.

There was a disagreement between the Sages as to whether the mezuza
should be placed horizontally or vertically. As a compromise, it was placed
on an angle.

The lesson to be learned >from this, is that if one was to come and look
at the mezuza without knowing the background, he would think that it was
placed on an angle as the ideal state. But someone who knows the
story, is aware that there is nothing ideal about the angle, but the significance
lies in the disagreement between the horizontal and vertical positions.

This is an important lesson for our genealogical searches - sometimes the
final result we see is much less important than the developments that led to
it. This can be for a surname, a town of origin or any other search.

The example of the "mezuza on an angle" is used by Rabbi Mordechai
BREUER, one of the most important teachers of Bible today. He is
the grandson of Rabbi Shlomo BREUR, who was the son-in-law of Rabbi
Shimshon (Samson) Raphael HIRSH, of Frankfurt, Germany.

Searching GOODMAN family in New York #general

KJermaine@...
 

We are trying to trace a line of family with the last name of GOODMAN that
lived in New York since l850. The husband was Louis GOODMAN and the wife was
Rachel PEARLMAN-GOODMAN. We can't figure out how to trace them to the
present. We found them in the 1890 census. We are trying to locate current
relatives of that family tree. The most current relative that we know of is
Beatrice GOODMAN-LOSOW who died in l934. The above were her parents. Another
relative is Rebecca GOODMAN. They may be one in the same, but we aren't sure.
She was born in l892. There was a large family of GOODMAN siblings. How do
we go about tracing this family. We don't live in New York, so it is
difficult. Another descendent of this family is Elaine KAVANAV, the daughter
of Beatrice. We have traced her to l946 in Brooklyn and can't get beyond
this. The family lived on Henry Street in New York in the l890's.
Thanks.

Thoughts about INS requests #general

james gross <larklane@...>
 

Hello,
Someone just sent this to me and I feel the info is of general interest.
Q: I have been on a "waiting" list for almost 1 yr. I wait and wait and
wait. I have only file #s assigned to me re: info. >from INS.
When I write, no response. But the letters are not returned to
me, so I would think they arrived at INS. I even have the name of
an indiv. to whom to send corresp. Suggestions?
If you have a INS #, just leave it alone til you get something. I've
done
about 17 INS requests and I usually send all my supporting garbage
after the initial # is assigned to me. Then I call up and make sure they
didn't feed everything to the dog. It is important to me so I spend the
.10 a minute so I can speak to someone there. I have found the average
turn around time to be under a year.
I will say that if and once they find your relatives papers, I
wouldn't
get hung up on "did they find everything or should I appeal". >from what
I understand, appealing is sort of a waste of time as per a conversation
I had with one of the INS supervisors. Usually you are appealing a no
record found reply. In my question to the supervisor, I asked," Does the
INS ever find records but decide to withhold them >from the requestor
because of any reason? " I was told that if the INS finds it, you get
it,
period. It is my feeling that they strive for customer service while
fulfilling your request under the Freedom of Information act. It is
contrary to their
goals and objectives to have a million grandmothers screaming for
records that they have found. The problem lies when papers/documents
are misfiled, lost, or unreadable. The INS can't simply wiggle their
noses
and create the stupid document. On the positive side, If you've done an
INS request several years ago, I understand the INS has recently
improved the quality of the image copying with newer copying & microfilm
machines. So, try a request for a clearer copy.
