Gorodische #belarus

Tammy
 

I finally had a breakthrough in my research. I have my great grandmother's
passport. Not only does it mention the children's names and ages when they
left Belarus, but it also mentions the town they were from. I am wondering if
anyone has any information about Gorodische. I looked it up on the Belarus sig
web page and it says that it is 15km >from Minsk. If anyone knows anything
about this town please let me know.

1797 Revision List #latvia

Marion Werle <werle@...>
 

(note, this is a response to an e-mail that was forwarded to me by David
Hoffman--it seemed pertinent to the entire Latvia SIG mailing list)

Howard,

The project that Martha is talking about is for a whole series of films,
many of which don't have any Jewish records, and many of which do. It is
not the 1797 Revision list per se, although there are revision lists
included in the collection. I did not realize that you were talking about
this project. I had looked at one of the films for Dvinsk some time ago,
and did not see any Jewish names, but I have not looked at all of them.
Since this is a very large film collection, it will need careful scrutiny.
Kahlile Mehr of the FHC in Salt Lake City was the one who had looked at the
films and provided the preliminary index.

I have mixed feelings about the outright purchase of the films. I realize
that people are eager to get going, but I would prefer to start with a few
specific films on loan >from the FHC, where we know there are Jewish
records, see what we can do with them >from a database standpoint, and then
go >from there. Based on the films I have seen, there is a lot of material,
and it would take YEARS to get through the entire collection. We would be
doing well to pick a few films and get those completely indexed. There are
a couple of films in this series (ones specifically with Jewish records)
that I ordered on permanent loan >from Salt Lake City, which are at the Los
Angeles FHC, and members could order others. It seems to me that someone
needs to do a cost analysis of how much it would be to purchase all the
films outright, relative to the cost of ordering specific films of interest
from the FHL in Salt Lake City, making hard copies, and then distributing
them for translation. Before committing any Latvia SIG funds to this
project, this analysis should be done, especially in light of Joel
Jakobson's recent posting where nine of the twelve films he obtained had no
Jewish names. I have a listing that was the raw material for the Avotaynu
article (it is done film by film, rather than arranged by town), and will
provide a count of those with specifically Jewish records. It is my
feeling that only after we index these films which we know are pertinent,
should we start on the ones which may or may not have what we are looking
for.

I am definitely in favor of the database project, I am still waiting for
someone with database knowledge to step up to the plate and become project
manager for the project. I would love to do it, but I do not have the
time, and I know how much work is involved in such an endeavor. David
Hoffman did an excellent job in a recent posting, listing some of the
issues involved.

I hope this clarifies my position. Martha Lev-Zion is one of my favorite
people, and I did not mean to 'slam' either her or this project.

Searching: BORNSTEIN from Wlodslavick, Poland #general

Frieda Libaw <fbl2@...>
 

My grandparents lived in Wlodslavick, Poland. Three of their children
emigrated: Abram (my father) to Paris around 1904, followed by his
brother, Gedalie, and by a sister, Chana (married to Ariel LANDSMAN).
Another brother, Motcha (Max) emigrated to the U.S. about the same time,
had his name changed to BERNSTEIN and lived in Brooklyn, N.Y. Motcha was
married and arrived with his wife, Netcha, and two daughters, Emma and
Ruth. I don't know if there were any other children.
I have a good knowledge of the descendants of the children mentioned.
But I am having difficuly tracing my ancestry beyond my grandfather,
Yakov BORNSTEIN and his wife, Rosa Lichtenstein.
Anybody out there have any info or leads? Thanks -
Frieda Libaw

Re: Copple (kappel)=yarmulke #general

Harold Pollins <pollins@...>
 

Judith is quite right. We always pronounce it as 'couple' but some say
'copple'.

However, most Jews in Britain also came >from Eastern Europe. Approx
figures. 1880
about 60,000 Jews in Britain, including Sephardim and Eastern Europeans. By
1914 about 300,000, the addition being due to East European immigration
plus natural increase.

By the name of Sherwood SCHWARZ. Can anyone tell me how to find an address
