Dear Jewishgenners,

Have you heard of somebody who has studdied the history of the
Jews of Majorca who lived there in endogamy since the Inquisition ?
>
Micheline GUTMANN
Yes, there are several scholars today both in USA and in Israel who are
working on the Jews in the Balearic Islands. I know someone living in
Israel who runs a small Institute on the Marranos. She and her husband
have a house on Ibiza, and in recent years they have gone there every Pesah
to make a Seder for locals who while no longer officially Jews know
themselves to be descended >from the conversos (crypto-Jews) of the time of
the Inquisition and are very interested to learn about their origins. She
does lecture tours with slides in USA >from time to time. It's absolutely
fascinating. I think she has done some specific stuff on Jews of Majorca,
and she can certainly tell you who else has.

If you contact her by e-mail she can inform you about her work, and also
about who in America is working on the Jews of Majorca. Please reply to me
directly if you would like her e-mail address.

JRI Poland #Poland Subject line in JRI-Poland posts #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

As you know, there is a new software program being used to manage
JewishGen and all the mailing lists under JewishGen.

So, while you are getting used to the new look of JRI - Poland messages,
I would ask you to always keep something in mind which will be helpful
to your fellow readers of this list:

Whether replying to an individually received message or one that was part
of a JRI-Poland digest, the Subject Line should always have the subject
from the original message, not: [jri-pl] Re: jri-pl digest: August 04, 1998
Thank you

Use a grease crayon and paper in the same way as one would when making a
brass rubbing. Then photograph the paper. You may even discover details
which might otherwise not be revealed in a photograph.

Some years ago there was a thread on s.g.j on the same subject and there
were suggestions of highlighting the engraving with graphite or shaving soap.
Both these methods were criticised by chemists as being injurious to
gravestones.

Belarus SIG #Belarus Orsha records #belarus

Corin Goodwin <corin@...>
 

Hi,

Thanks for starting this SIG.

My ggf (Max BARSILA) and ggm (Ida BASOK) were married in Orsha on July
24, 1894 (according to the bc's of all of their children), and I am
trying to locate a copy of the marriage records. Does anyone know where
I need to write, or if such records are even extant?

I'm also hoping to track down information regarding my ggm's parents,
Jacob and Esther BASOK, who were (according to family legend) wealthy
landowners in the area at the time. Any suggestions?

TIA,
