JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen JewishGen Discussion Group Membership--Automatic? #general

Carole Feinberg <feincgs@...>
 

Hello, Fellow Researchers,

We now understand why some members of an "old" mailing list are not on
the "new" list.

I am writing on behalf of the working committee of the Borislav,
Drogobych, Sambor & Vicinity Research Group (BDS&V, for short). While
many people have found us and have subscribed, some haven't, probably
thinking membership in the "new" group is automatic. It isn't, friends.

This "new" discussion group is housed by JewishGen, and you must send a
notice to JewishGen saying you'd like to join, if you wish to receive
email >from other subscribers to BDS&V.

Much information has already been shared by our resident map, geography
and history specialist, Alex Sharon. He listed virtually all the
shtetlach in our area, including the newly added shtetl, Dobromil, and
all the businesses found in the 1929 Polish Business Directory for our
area.

Another BDS&V member, David Priever, has volunteered to photograph and
record the data on tombstones in New York City landsmanschaft plots for
our area of interest.

Quite a lot has happened in a very short time. Since subscribing is
easy we invite all interested parties to do so. If you want to read
about our goals and how to subscribe, do the following:

Begin at www.jewishgen.org
Click on "Infofiles"
Scroll to "Countries", click on "Ukraine"
Finally, click on "Borislav, Drogobycy, Sambor & Vicinity"

We look forward to more researchers' participation.

Best wishes.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Handwriting Analysis - Expert Needed #general

Kendrick Kreations <racecar3@...>
 

Hi!

I have a birth record that I need some expert assistance with. The
document is a record of birth >from CT in 1893. We located the document
through Family History films and are unable to decide exactly what the
surnames are for two individuals listed on the record. As a result, I
am in search of a handwriting analyst or an expert with penmanship that
might assist me. Without this assistance I am afraid I am at a dead-end
with my research.

If you would be willing to help me, please email me privately at:
racecar3@...

Thank you for your time and any response.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: The Name Fagel #general

Gene and Ellen Sucov <genellen@...>
 

Dear Yonasan,
Fayga and Fagel are Yiddish words meaning bird. A familiar version of the
name is Faygele. It is used as a woman's name. In Hebrew it would be
Tzippora.
All 3 Yiddish versions are proper names for women. Sincerely, Gene Sucov

Yonasan Shapiro < shapie@...> wrote:

Is there a name Fagel or is it a variant of Fayga??? I say it is a name
by itself while someone in my shul disagrees.

Rabbi Yitzchak Blauer was the Chief Rabbi of Petersburg around the
turn of the century. He was prominent in rabbinic councils, and
sponsored some in his own town. He was known to many as as Rav Itsele
Peterburger.

remember at this moment which University it is. I will try to find the
answer soon and publish it. Do you include Salet without the H in your

Did I miss something? Are there lists of passengers who embarked in

Transfer of 1949 NY Death Certs to Municipal Archives #general

Stephanie Lewis <stefwlewis@...>
 

Hi all!

Does anyone know when the 1949 Death Certificates will be transferred >from
the NYC Dept of Health to the Municipal Archives? I have tried calling,
but I just get caught up in the extended recording options (none of which
helps me!). It was my understanding that these records, over 50 years,
would be at the archives, and I've been waiting anxiously as 1949 is the
first year not available, but I haven't learned _when_!

Thanks in advance for any help anyone can provide!
