English and/or Hebrew equivalents of Jewish given names. #lodz #poland

Martin Kronman <mkronman@...>
 

In searching the Polish surname data base for KRONMAN's I have encountered
the following unfamiliar given names: SZALMA; GERTZ (HERTZ?); MAJLICH;
SANOMON (SOLOMON?); LEJA; SZMUL (SHMUEL?). I would appreciate anyone giving
me the likely equivalents of these names in English and/or Hebrew.

Re: Genealogy Newspaper Column #general

DGoldman <dgoldman@...>
 

Al has an interesting idea about "someone" producing a syndicated genealogy
column. There is in fact such a column already--one written by Miriam Weiner. On
the other hand, he's right that you don't see genealogy featured much. We need to
acknowledge the problemproblem as perception rather than lack of effort.

For example: When JGSGW can provide a really "sexy" topic to the Washington Jewish
paper, or even better a pre-written article complete with photographs, we get
coverage in this area. More interesting, the paper has on its own begun publishing
individual family stories that have nothing to do with our society, and often from
individuals who have no contact with our society. (No comment on that, please.)
The link between those articles and possible publicity for JGSGW or genealogy in
general is obvious, but the paper makes no such connection and feels no obligation
to mention any such connection.

The bottom line is that what the paper is interested in is not genealogy, but human
interest. (And even better, human interest that they don't have to assign a
reporter to cover.) So, Al, if you or someone else can prepare articles to meet
the paper's goals, rather than ours, we may have a match!

Re: Jewish Genealogy Month #general

Gary Mokotoff <mokotoff@...>
 

Israel Pickholtz asked about the month of Nisan (this year, April 6-May 5)
being Jewish Genealogy Month.

Every year Avotaynu sponsors Jewish Genealogy Month as a time for Jewish
Genealogical Societies to promote Jewish family history. We develop a poster
(http://www.avotaynu.com/poster.htm that is distributed to societies who
post them at Jewish institutions in their area encouraging members of the
community to attend JGS meetings. Many societies make an effort during this
period to give lectures at synagogues and community centers about tracing
family history.

This year, Jewish Genealogy Month is also being promoted by Bnai Brith
International, who plans to include information in their e-zine. Also
Ancestry.com is promoting it on their Home Page as well as a special page
that provides information about the 20th International Conference on Jewish
Genealogy, Web Resources for Jewish Genealogy, Yom HaShoah, products sold by
Ancestry of interest to Jewish genealogists, and even traditional Jewish
recipes.

This years' theme is "A Family of the Jewish People."

JPEGs of Jewish life in Eastern Europe Available #general

Gary Mokotoff <mokotoff@...>
 

Postcards of your ancestral town >from the turn of the 20th century can be a
wonderful addition to the photographic portion of your family history, but
they are rare items and consequently very expensive. Typical prices are
$20-50 each, with some costing hundreds of dollars.

Avotaynu is now selling, at a very low cost, JPEGs of these postcards from
the collection of Tomasz Wisniewski, a record searcher and tour guide who
lives in Bialystok, Poland. There are some 100 towns represented in the
pictures. Many of the pictures are of synagogues since destroyed in the
Holocaust, street scenes, and panoramic views.

Additional information is at http://www.avotaynu.com/postcards/.

Breine Strimling #lithuania

PARA906020@...
 

Perhaps I should have clarified my previous posting but my intent was to try
and jog a few memories. I already have a fair amount of information on Breine
Strimling. I have an original ticket for her passage to New York in 1899 as
well as an original luggage receipt. I have the ship's manifest showing her
age at the time as 17 and she traveled alone. Her passage was paid for by a
sister in New York. She purportedly came >from Kovno (Kowno) and emigrated
from Bremen. I have been in contact with Strimlings in this country as well
as South Africa. I came into possession of the original documents through my
Mother. However I do not know if Breine Strimling is related to me or not.
That is what I am trying to find out as well as determine just who this young
girl was. The problem is that nobody has ever heard of her. The Strimlings
have an extensive family website and not one of them has heard of her. I
obtained the ships manifest on my own and even though it provided other
valuable clues, Breine Strimling remains a mystery.

Therefore my original intent in my first posting was simply to see if the
name was familiar to anyone. At this point it seems that a 17 year old girl
arrived in NYC in 1899 and just vanished.
