Dear Fellow Researchers:

This is a reminder for anyone interested in researching Lodz ghetto
records: a rare copy of the records, published as "Lodz Names" in 1994,
is housed in the Robarts Library of the University of Toronto. If you are
attending the conference and plan to go to the library for research,
please see this page for further information:

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Lodz/lodzname.htm

These are the records of 200,000 Jews who inhabited the Lodz ghetto from
1940 through the liquidation of the ghetto in August 1944. They originated
from the city of Lodz and many surrounding Polish towns, as well as other
countries such as Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia, and Luxembourg.

If you are interested in any town in the general Lodz region, as well as
ghetto records, you are invited to attend the Lodz Area Research Group
meeting in Toronto on Wednesday, August 7, 5:00 - 6:15 PM.

Shirley,

"Lodz Names" book is also available for a number of years through the
Toronto Metropolitan Library - I believe that this is a correct name of the
Central City Library (c/r Bloor and Yonge streets).

I would like to thank the *many* people who responded to my post asking for
the location of "Bouchara"- I have passed it on to the Red Cross, and
hopefully they will find something somewhere about what happened to our
grandparents. Jewish Genners come through again!! :-) Thanks again

their whereabouts or existence of descendants.

Hi!
I was a bit confused the first time I used city directories, too. I was
checking Toronto and NYC, but they all seem to use similar standards.

"h" means home - where they lived.
"do" is the equivalent of our "ditto". I've also seen it on passenger
lists. I wish I knew its origin, though --
In other words, "h do" following a work address means they lived at the
same address as they worked.

"bds" means "boards", which means they rented a room at that address.

"(330)" - I'm clueless for this one <g>.

Re: necrology on Yizkor Book site #general

Some of the yizkor books have used abbreviations for family member
relationships. The most common ones are:

c - child
cc - children
h - husband
w - wife

"w-cc" would mean "wife and children."

I found my ancestor's surname at
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/praga/pra002.html. This surname - PLIZNER
is located in the necrology on this site.What does "w-cc"mean ? How can I
get more information about my ancestor ?

Subject: Re: Is there a faster way to g othrough all the forum letters?

I don't know anything about a program. However, I
find that if I just go through and read the subject
lines that it helps alot. That's why it is very
important to make them as specific as possible. For
example: If the subject line says "looking for
Wolfson" I know that I don't need to bother reading
that email because I don't have anyone with that
surname in my family. I find that this saves me alot
of time. Often, I can evern go through and I end up
deleting all of it, becuase none of it matters to me.

Hope that helps,
Jackie

Horses for courses...the reason I read lots of the messages is to see
who's looking for what--especially the responders to a particular topic,
who sign their names with a list of names and places they're
researching. If people listed their researcher numbers (and I'm not
suggesting that they do) and FamilyFinder allowed search by researcher
(which I'm not suggesting it should), we could see who's researching
what without those signatures (and I'm not saying I'd prefer that).

If you read the list as e-mail, all you need is a mail client with a
search feature. I use Netscape 6.23, and although I wouldn't recommend
it for most users, it does have perfectly good message-searching. If
you set the mail filters to put all your JewishGen mail in one folder,
you can search that folder. For that matter, you can set up a filter to
put messages that contain certain key words into a special folder.
