The Unbroken Chain #general

Ricki L. Zunk <rickiz@...>
 

Hi All:

Neil Rosenstein's book was mentioned to the group last week. For some
time now, I have been upset, because I bought a copy of it at a lecture
he gave in Westfield, NJ, on September 19, 1978. I thought that I had
inadvertently donated my copy to the Miami-Dade Library. Imagine my
pleasure at finding the book yesterday, hiding in a closet. It's even
got a dedication handwritten on the flyleaf >from Neil. I'd forgotten
just how informative the book was. Ironically, when I began my family
research in 1976, there was little help available to Jewish
genealogists. FINDING OUR FATHERS was my first "bible" for researching
Jewish roots. The second "bible" was THE UNBROKEN CHAIN. I set up my
old-fashioned paper files and my family tree outlines in the form that
Neil used in his book. I still use that as my basic repository of
information. While I just started using Family Tree Maker, I still find
my family tree outlines the most useful.

Thanks Neil. You'll never know how really helpful you were back then.
Wish I could find a connection >from any of my family lines to any of
yours. Unfortunately, I can't.

Could anyone tell me where Sawcha was in Galicia?
I have tried ShtetlSeeker, and the map rooms, with no luck.

I am looking for BERKOWITZ family of Chicago who I think ran a funeral
parlour after the second world war.
They were related to the LEVIN/LEVINE family of Sheffield,England.
The major Jewish funeral director/company is now Pizer-Weinstein. They
may be able to give you an old list or reference. My step-father worked
at Hartman-Miller in the 50's, which is no longer in existance, to my
knowledge as I no longer live in the area. Good luck.

With reference to Harold Pollins posting:

Actually, I did not say that I was using the Roll of Honour >from the British
Jewry Book of Honour, although Harold Pollins assumed correctly that this is my
main source. A few years ago, when I acquired my copy, I collated the list
with my own UK genealogy files. The result, which I am slowly working on
getting typed up, and which will not be added to my site quite yet, is a table
that includes the list with some additions that I had found, and an additional
column indicating family relationships.

I am also aware that the British Jewry Book of Honour has some shortcomings
(such as omitting my grandfather) in all the lists. However, it is still an
amazing and little known resource.

I had missed Harold Pollins article (which I shall now search for!) in the
Jewish Journal of Sociology.

Re: Voradish #hungary

Gzsuzsi@...
 

Melody,

There is a town by the name of Varad (Nagyvarad/Oradea), today Romania, but
very close to the Hungarian border. Did you find this as a printed word or
handwritten - if in a handwritten context, perhaps there were 2 words
together, as in 'Varad is' = also Varad. My 2 cents,

Susan Geroe

In a message dated 10/26/98 12:27:46 PM, you wrote:

<<Voradish was supposedly a town "on the border".

Of what, Hungary? Does anyone have any idea of the location/present name?

Has anyone heard of this?
