The widow of my uncle, estranged >from the family, was last seen by the
family at his funeral in NY about 1952. She was born about 1890. I have
checked the SSDI-she's not there; her plot at the cemetary is unused; no
trace. But a rumor many years ago was that she moved to Israel and died
there OR died here and the body was shipped to Israel for burial. She was
a extremely religious women. They had no children. Any suggestions as to
how I might check this further in Israel? Thank you. Murray SHAINIS

Looking for jewish imagration records #general

Jeffrey Schlang <j-schlang1@...>
 

Hello,

Anybody know where I can find imagration records.
All I know is that my grandfather was born here and
I think his father was not.
My grandfather was born in the early 1900's.

Thanks for any help.

MODERATOR NOTE: Be sure to read the JewishGen FAQ and
look through the InfoFiles -- there is some great
information about immigration records.

Dear Friends:
First of all let me wish you an Happy and Kosher Peisach. This message
is sent on behalf of Moishe Lubianiker, one of the main

"Dear Friends, It's almost a year since I've last written to you and
"plenty of water has flown in the Tysmienica river" (or mountain brook,
depending on what year season somebody looked at it). Most of that time
I had to dedicate to my family who, for the last year required more
attention then ever. But when things started to return to their normal
path, I found some time to put into realization my idea of erecting a
very special Web Site for a very unique human entity with their special
social behavioural pattern which differentiates them >from other folks
originating >from other provinces or regions, different dialect,
different folkloristic patterns, sometimes even different attitudes.
Solidarity between one another and an urge to utilize "connections" in
order to help the same community member or even to prefer him >from among
other outsiders. Why? Because he is a Landsman ! Or in Russian, a
"Zemliak", Or in Italian a "Paesano" Because he, with his speech,
manners, sayings, jokes, habits, remembrances, songs, tales, reminds me
of my folks, Father, Mother, friend, etc... Of a world lost, who is not
existing any more... Instead of speaking so much, of being carried
away... See please the URL <www.Landsmen.org> . It is "still in its
diapers" and has plenty of errors which must still be corrected. And
there's quite more material waiting to be posted. And the navigation
system must be improved and there might be some inconsistences with the
Hebrew part for those who surf with the Netscape Navigator, and the
language must be corrected, I am aware of most errors. But some might
already get an idea of what its all about. I will gladly accept articles
, family tales, poems ideas for improvement, help. If some of you have
also a family Web-Site and he wishes that I link the to his site, I will
gladly do it. I intend to open a special memorial corner for persons who
wish to remind their dearest by dedicating remembrance inscriptions. In
the mean time, keep well, and have a nice Passover.

"Scrolls of Testimony" Specially Priced on the JewishGenMall #galicia

Carol Skydell <cskydell@...>
 

Our JewishGen Mall managers are pleased to let you know that the
Presentation Edition of one of the most moving chronicles of the
Holocaust, "Scrolls of Testimony" by the award-winning
Israeli writer Abba Kovner is available at the a very
special price of $79.95 for a limited time only. Normally
this book, written in the Jewish tradition of megillot or scrolls,
retails for $100.

More important than the advantageous price reduction is that this
compelling book...this testimony of the author interwoven with
eyewitness accounts of others, notes and excerpts of poetry
and prose, even last wills and testaments is an almost
liturgical account of the greatest tragedy to befall our
people.

Regarded by many as one of the great masterpieces of Holocaust literature,
"Scrolls of Testimony" took over ten years to research and write. The English
translation was a monumental effort accomplished by Dr. Edward Levenston,
former professor of English linguistics at the Hebrew
University of Jerusalem.
The haunting paintings are by Samuel Bak, who, like Kovner, is a survivor
of the Vilna Ghetto.

Both the Presentation Issue and the regular edition are truly treasures.
Both are available now at reduced prices

http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgenmall

The quickest way to find them is to click on the Browse button on the left
hand side of the Mall page and scroll down to the Specially
Priced section. Click on the words Specially Priced.

"Scrolls of Testimony" in both the Presentation Issue and the regular
edition will be listed. Click on the title for further
information about the book, and if you wish to purchase,
just click on the ADD button which will add the book to
your shopping cart.


Every purchase in the JewishGenMall helps us meet our operations budget, so
when you make a purchase, you are helping JewishGen!

Tithing [subject provided by moderator] #galicia

IsraelP <zach4v6@...>
 

Why don't you tithe the other towns' contributions for this purpose? I
mean everyone has people that went off to the big city, no?

So if someone sends $100 for some other town, take ten of that for
Lwow.

collection has not yet been completed, but Lviv still needs your support

Questions on double-name "Ruchla Bayla" #general

Lilli Sprintz <spri0037@...>
 

Thank you all for the responses to my request for information on double-
name "Ruchla Bayla"

Now I am pretty sure that if this double-name turns up more than once in my
genealogy research, it might be family related.

After getting responses about Bayla/Beila meaning "Bella" (which I have
been told now by several folks) then perhaps this has a Latin or Hispanic
history. I had Latin in highschool. So this is ringing a bell. Trying
to remember if Bella means "beautiful."

I went and did a quick internet check of the name, and sure enough, Bella
is Latin origin meaning, "beautiful, charming," (female is "Bella," male
is "Bellus). The URL, for anyone interested, is:

http://www.acay.com.au/~jamesg/articles/latin.htm#b

It has possible transference to other languages including French, Spanish
and Portuguese, and of course now possibly Yiddish. It is *not* the
word(s) for war, which are "bellicus" and "bellum."

Would this mean we (our family) and perhaps anyone else with that name(?)
might have Sephardic heritage?, which may be true with both sides of our
family regarding other information? How to trace those names back is
still confusing. Does anyone have any suggestions tracing back women's
names like this?

To all those friendly folks who give me a "heads-up" every time Steve
Pickholtz posts something on JewishGen:

1. Thank you. 2. Yes, we are in contact 3. Yes, we are probably related -
fourth or fifth cousins (both our families are >from Skalat and came to
the US in the early 1890's) 4. No, we don't know how yet 5. Yes, we
sometimes duplicate each others questions, inquiries and research
5. No, it isn't a waste of time, because Steve often comes up with new
information even when going over territory I have covered.
