Hello >from New York City,

The items below concern my grandfather's youngest sister, Rifka-Siril AGATER,
and I would like some suggestions on how I can find any information about her
and her life in South America.

She left Poland and her family at about 1907 and was next heard >from in
Buenos Aires, Argentina (she took a studio photo, with the photographer's
address on the photo and sent it to her father).

By best estimates, she was about 13-16 years of age. This first photo shows
her wearing a plain long dress and without any other finery.

Subsequent photos show her wearing stylish dress', eyeglass' hats and jewelry.

Very little is known about her life in South America except the following
which I got >from her son (who, not to confuse the issue, is also my
brother-in-law). 1. She had a very good understanding of opera and she spoke
at least five languages (not counting Yiddish and Russian). 2. She said that
she had traveled about Europe to cities with well known opera companies and
in America, she often went to the opera and was in the audience when Enrico
Caruso last sang at the Metropolitan Opera. 3. She had a bracelet inscribed
"To My Love," and it was >from Sao, Paulo, Brazil. 4. It was December 1919,
at one of her nephew's Bris, when anyone in the family remembers her here in
New York.

SUMMARY: We believe she was in South America (Argentina and Brazil) >from
about 1907 to 1919. She might have been employed with an opera company (not
as a performer). In New York City she did not use her first name
(Rifka/Ruth) and instead was known as Tsidil/Siril/Celia.

So, are there any avenues of research open to me, that I can do >from New York
City?

Thanks for any help you can give me.

In response to the message posted about not being able to find "Visney," Russia, may I suggest that the name might be Wizno, Russia [now Poland]. My paternal grandmother had family >from this area, and the accent was so strong that is sounded like Visney. In fact, Visney is listed on the death
certificate of my great-grandmother as her place of birth.

Wizno is north-west of Bialystok.

Next my sister had some papers we knew nothing about--included was an
obit on my great-grandfather Rabbi Simon J SHAPIRO >from Visney Russia
(help--could not find it in the shetel list). He must have gone there as
a Rabbi >from Lithuana.

Hi!

As I read this thread my main thought is, how sad that the original poster
and others do not understand the internet, more specifically newsgroups,
etc. My next thought is, how sad that this lack of knowledge might cause
a "scare" throughout this discussion group and others. And finally, my
feeling of fear for the reactions by the original poster and others, and
what their lack of knowledge might do to genealogy research.

The original poster (and the rest in agreement with him) should research
how the incident happened just a thoroughly as they do their own genealogy
prior to accusing and admonishing. Once you do, you will realize that the
individual did *nothing wrong* !! Don't ruin things for the rest of us
just because of your lack of understanding.

As for personal email, I agree with the statement that "he must have cc'd
or blind cc'd the relative in a correspondence that went to the group."
Simply put, there is probably a very logical explanation for this without
accusing, exposing or admonishing anyone. Why would the individual
announce the convenience of the search engine to thousands if he had done
something unethical?
Unethical actions are very easily uncovered on the net now days.

A big thank you to Dick and all the others that have been trying to explain
and assist and educate those who have a major lack of knowledge. Let's
all try our best to explain and teach these individuals so they have a
total understanding of the situation.

Re Genealogy and privacy #general

Denise Azbill <famaz@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I recently had an unpleasant and confusing experience regarding privacy
issues, and so was gratified to see the topic being discussed in the
group. I would like to share my experience with you.

Through total serendipity (and JewishGen!), I found someone via e-mail who
is related to me by marriage. I considered this to be my first "success
story" and was ecstatic, and the other person seemed pretty darned happy,
too! We exchanged some photos, family information and some papers from
a "family book". I have a friend whose surname was mentioned in these
papers, and whom I knew had also communicated with my newly found family
member. I showed my friend the papers, and told my family member about
it. I received a nasty and irate letter, telling me I should not have
shown the papers to my friend. I was told not to share this information
with anyone and to show the papers to _no one_, not even my own family
members! The reason I was given for this attitude was that my family
member had not gotten permission >from _his / her_contributors to share the
info. Needless to say, I felt very badly about this and apologized.

However, the more I have thought about this, even before the topic came up
in the group, my attitude has changed. Most of the information I received
was concerning the dead (G-d rest their souls). I feel that if you have
information regarding my ancestors, I have the right to know and to share
it with other family members. I will respect this new family member's
privacy and have not put any info on the web or even FTJP, but I will and
have shared it with my family members. I mean, we are talking about dead
people.

I am angry that this person still has a surname listing on JewishGen.
People can offer information to him/her, but he/she won't give any in
return? Where is the fairness in that? And what is the point?

Also, your privacy can be just as easily violated off the web. I have
written many letters to possible family members, most of which went
unanswered. A few months ago, an old schoolmate of mine was looking for
me, and contacted someone I had written to who had the same surname as
mine. This person (who was one of those who never wrote back to me) gave
out my married name, address and phone number (which is unlisted!) I
would never have thought someone would do that in this day and age. But
who would think to put in a letter to a stranger, "Please don't give out
any information about me to anyone who may contact you"? It sounds pretty
ridiculous. You would think people would use their common sense.

So, you can see that I do feel people have a right to their privacy. I
try not to even give out others' e-mail addresses without asking their
permission first. But, if you are going to do genealogy on the web, you
have to expect a minimal amount of privacy. How are people going to make
connections if no one wants to share their information? Why bother being
on the web or part of a discussion group?

So, the moral of my story is, if you don't want information given out,
_say so_ in advance, and really, if you don't want to share information,
get off the web and out of genealogy.

It really isn't that complicated.
Sincerely,

Denise Azbill

Dear Jenners

One of our members recently said the following:-

but I have only one motivation, and that is to provide my children and
their children with a sense of heritage, and where they all come from, and
some of the history behind that heritage.

I am sure that we all agree how important it is for our descendents to
know where they are "coming from" (and most of us feel this strongly hence
the reason most of us are involved in our family genealogy), but in this
day and age of marrying out (assimilation) where being a Jew is lost for
generations to come, I feel it important that they should realise where
they should be "going to". They have thousands of years of precious
Jewish heritage to take forward with them.

To the Belarus SIG - Forwarded:


In order to insure the maximum degree of privacy possible in a
public website, JewishGen has redesigned the submission process
for those who enter their surnames/towns of interest into the
JewishGen Family Finder (JGFF). New entrants using the ENTER
feature will find all this spelled out. JewishGenners who have
already entered their data will be able to make the changes in
the MODIFY mode.

First, we are offering the following choices on how you want
your contact address to be displayed. You simply select
whichever format you prefer, choosing >from the following three
options:

1. Display my researcher code only (provides maximum privacy
through a protected e-mail contact system, similar to that
used with the Family Tree of the Jewish People (FTJP)).
This is a new feature.

2. Display my name and e-mail address (insures privacy to a
degree).

3. Display my name, e-mail address, and complete postal
address (least degree of privacy).

Further, since JewishGen reserves the right to contact JGFF
submitters with information regarding projects or programs which
may enhance individual research, we are offering the following
for how you want your JGFF information shared:

1. Share my details with JewishGen partnered or hosted
organizations which might benefit my research.
(This option has been pre-selected on your behalf)

You are free to change the selection to:

2. DO NOT share my details with any other organization.

All of the above are examples of what you will find if you click
on ENTER as a brand new entrant to the JGFF, or under MODIFY if
you are already listed in the JGFF. You must go to the JGFF to
effect these changes:
<http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff>.

Those using the MODIFY system will need to be prepared with
their Researcher Code and Password in order to make any
changes.

If you have forgotten your Researcher Code, go to the JGFF at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff> and click on SEARCH. Type in
any surname or town that you have previously listed in the
database, and you can then scroll through the search results.
When you find your name listed, you will see your JGFF
Researcher Code in parenthesis right next to your name. Please
write it down and consider taping it right onto your computer.
For more information, see
<http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/jgff-faq.html#q5.10>.

If you have forgotten your password, send an e-mail to
<password@...>, providing your full name,
address and Researcher Code. When you get your password by
return e-mail, please write it down as well, , especially if it
is a series of numbers. When you go into MODIFY, it's a good
idea to modify your password >from a number to a word that you
will remember.

Once in the MODIFY screen, enter your Researcher Code and
Password, and select the first option, "Modify Researcher
Information (Your Name/Address/Password/Display)", and you will
be taken to the page that has all the information that you've
entered regarding your name/address/password/display. Make
whatever changes you like and then be sure to click on the
button that says "Update Researcher Details"

If you need help please send a message explaining the problem to
<techsupport@...>.

Our final effort at insuring that the JGFF is not used by
professionals soliciting research for a fee or making any
attempt to sell you information or products, is to provide a
help desk for you to contact should you be approached by anyone
with a product or a service for sale. Please address all
instances of abuse to <JGFFabuse@...> enclosing a copy
of whatever message you have received that you consider to be an
invasion of your privacy.

For more information about the JewishGen Family Finder, see
