Re: NJ burial society records #general

Allen Jordan asks about accessing the records of a defunct
burial society...

Burial societies actually functioned somewhat like insurance companies and
each state has an Insurance Commissioner... You might try writing to that
office to determine if there is any division that would have records of
defunct burial societies and what information those records would contain.

Re: Watch out for Surname Book Offer #general

Ron Kaminker tells us that he unfortunately fell prey to this scam...

Had he checked the JewishGen Discussion Group Archived messages he would
have been thoroughly forewarned against falling into this trap. Messages
as far back as two years ago appeared about Halbert's of Bath Ohio.

I note that their prices have risen dramatically because when I got the
offer in 1994 it was considerably lower..
I also wonder if they ever got their soundex act together because it was
totally wrong when they offered to sell the world book of SKYDELL. They
soundexed SKYDELL as S234 instead of S340 <VBG>


Perhaps a letter to Halbert's with a copy to the Consumer Affairs Bureau of
the State of Ohio, demanding the money back would be successful.

How make out check to Kaunas Archive? #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

I read the very informative LitvakSIG FAQ, but it's still not clear to me
how to make out my check to the Kaunas Archive. Do I write it out to "Kauno
Apygardos Archyvas" or "Kaunas Archives" or something else?
Either way will work. However, it is best to make the check out to Kauno
Apygardos Archyvas.

Names of Kagan and Cohen from the All Lithuania Database #lithuania

Sorry to pick on you Howard, but a number of people seem to have made
the same mistake. My question does not relate to *researching of record
names* but two - what must be books in the All Lithuania Database. The
All Lithuania database has a field with lists its *source* of various
names. That is, somebody (presumably on this list, since I would have
thought that all the data submitters and enterers to the All Lithuania
Database would have been on this list) - has submitted these names and
given their Source as, in one case, Kagan, and in another case, Cohen.
Nowhere on the database, that I could find, however, was more detail
given about these documents, although lots of other documents were
described as being sources for the names. I think Saul Isseroff must be
right when he identifies Kagan as the book he named - especially as
somebody checked for me and the right names are on the right pages.

Cohen has to be a different book, a) the pages are different and b)
whoever it was who submitted the names clearly thought this book was by
somebody different. My *best* guess at the book is that it is "Koreh
shehayehudim be Shavli" by S Cohen, Kovno 1938. On the other hand, I
only know of this title by a handwritten (and difficult to read) note at
the top of one of the Luntz family trees I have collected (in fact one
faxed to me by Saul Isseroff). I am assuming that since this is a
different book >from Kagan, that it deals with Luntzs (alhough to what
extent I do not know), it matches the "Cohen" mentioned in the All
Lithuania Database. On the other hand, I have no way of being sure,
except to track down whoever it was who entered the data into the All
