Re: First name Khatskel #general

I believe it's the Yiddish form for the Hebrew Yehezkel (English Ezekiel).

in fact, the jewishgen given names databse lists "Haskl / Khaskiel / Khaskl /
Khatse / Khatsek / Khatsele / Khatshe / Khatske / Khatskl / Kheske / Kheskl /
Khesye / Khezkeyl / Khezye / Yaskl" as all being Yiddish nicknames for Ezekiel.

Two Free 411 Phone number Lookup Services - U.S.A. #general

I didn't see anything in the archives about these two
free phone number lookup services that will also
connect you for free as well. I have looked at
several reviews, but nothing says how current these
data bases are. The only complaints were getting a
busy signal sometimes, and that you have to put up
with a possible 15 second advertising message. If it
is a long distance of paid cell phone call you surely
don't want 2002 information. Has anyone on this list
checked these out.

Dear list,

For some time I have been trying to find out information about the fate of
a relative of mine who died in Berlin Sept 29, 1942. His name was Emil POHL,
born Sept 6, 1870 in Prague.
His address given in the 1939 census was (I was told by the Bundesarchiv and
the Centrum Judaicum in Berlin) Berlin Tiergarten Berlin, Jagowstr. 3 "bei
JAFFE".
How can I find out who this or these Jaffe were to find out more details about
Emil Pohl.
Any suggestions are welcome.
Thank you

Canadian information #general

david nathan <d.nathan1@...>
 

Hi Genners,

Anyone in Canada - particularly Montreal, Quebec?

I am searching for information about my uncle and his wife, Bert and Lisa
NATHAN, who lived in Montreal between about 1830 and the late 1980s and had,
I believe, two daughters and a son.

Bert migrated >from England around 1930-ish - maybe a little earlier or
possibly a little later. According to family lore, initially he obtained a
hawker's or pedlar's license to sell household goods >from door to door and
later had a furniture business which also dealt by mail order. Unfortunately
he never kept in touch with his family back in England, so I have no more
information, not even a street address. He was one of the sons of Newman and
Sarah Nathan. Both Bert and Lisa are now most likely dead as the last
contact was back in the 1970s when they would have been in their 60s or
thereabouts.

I have tried various Canadian ancestry sites and also Archives Canada, but
all want what is, to me, a pensioner, inordinately large sums of money in
order to institute any kind of searches, so I am appealing to Genners for
some help or advice in this matter.

With thanks in advance

The Cantonists—The Jewish Children's Army of the Tsar

The Cantonist era was a terrifying episode in Jewish history, and one that
is etched in the collective memory of the Jewish people. Tsar Nicholas of
Russia conscripted thousands of Jewish children – some as young as 6 years
old – into his army for up to 25 years! The Tsar's declared goal was nothing
less than to convert these children to Christianity; for him, their baptism
was of the highest priority.

Researching the Cantonists revealed the struggle of these youngsters to
maintain their Judaism against impossible odds. Many failed. But some, like
Golda Meir's grandfather, succeeded in reclaiming their heritage and
reconnecting the chain of Jewish tradition. Today, thousands of Jews are
descendants of those stalwart Cantonists.

Larry Domnitch has degrees in both political science and Jewish history. He
writes extensively for newspapers and journals throughout the United States
and Israel, especially about this unique period of history.

Toja's is eggs, ker the abbreviation of dealer. So my assumption is, he

New Book, "Caviar and Ashes" in the JewishGenMall #hungary

Carol W. Skydell <cskydell@...>
 

Dear JewishGenners,

Whether your ancestors came >from Poland or you are just interested in the
history of the Polish intellectuals of the 20th century, the new book
"Caviar and Ashes" by Dr. Marci Shore is sure to be a fascinating read.
Recently published by Yale University Press, the book can now be purchased
at a discounted price through the JewishGenMall.

Dr. Shore's "Caviar and Ashes" eloquently presents the history of a
generation of Polish intelligentsia born at the turn of the last
century. The book follows the lives of young innovators who chose the
Marxist philosophy even before Poland fell under the control of the Soviet
Union. Their selected path took them >from literary cafes not only to
corridors of power but also to prison cells. The work, based on the newly
obtainable archives >from Poland, the ex-USSR and Israel, recounts over
fifty years of Eastern-European Jewish literati history in the twentieth
century.

Please visit the JewishGenMall at < www.jewishgenmall.org > and to read
more about the book or to place your order, click on the moving banner..

We welcome your visit and appreciate whatever purchases are made in the
JewishGenMall since this is one way of helping support JewishGen programs
and projects.
