There is also, for those that can read French, Radio France's "Paroles
d'etoiles". See http://www.parolesetoiles.com/livres/index.php (the
link to order a copy doesn't seem to work for me).

The passages vary >from two lines to 5 pages.

I bought a cheap edition copy (ISBN 978-2-290-33479-9) for less than 2
euro in a Leclerc supermarket two or three years ago as French holiday
reading - usually I pass on such books after the holiday, but not this
one.

It includes a few passages >from other publications, and also the
pastoral letter >from the Archbishop of Toulouse sent in August 1942
to be read in the churches of the archdiocese, after he had received
details of the deportations >from the local detention camps (see
http://www1.yadvashem.org/righteous_new/france/saliege.html).

BABIC family // Tel Aviv (ex: Lublin, Poland) #general

Rashi Rosenzweig <rashi67@...>
 

Good Morning Genners:

I'm now researching Paula BABIC of Tel Aviv. Paula Babic was born in
Lublin, and was a Holocaust survivor who survived Treblinka. Her husband
and a daughter both perished there. However she made it to Israel and
settled in Tel Aviv. I received a picture of her taken in 1968 by a
cousin of mine who visited with her. She has more family and my dear
cousin wasn't able to share a lot as this meeting took place 42 years ago. 

I highly doubt that this woman is alive anymore as in this picture she
looked rather senior over 40 years ago. Yet how can I track where she
lived and any descendants of hers? Is there any office in Israel that can
help me out? I tried finding a Babic family >from Tel Aviv and the Babics
(or Bobbiks) I found are not related to this woman. 

Any suggestions would be highly appreciated my friends.

Wishing you all a great day.

With kind regards,

Dear All

I recently uploaded "family" records >from Pinczow, Poland during the 19th
century all written in Russian. Some one (or it could have been more than
one person) was kind enough to translate these records for me. Regrettably
despite reading he ViewMate FAQs, I have been unable to directly contact the
responder(s) to thank him, her or they. I am taking the opportunity to do
so through this forum even though I understand one is discouraged >from using
this forum for such purposes. In doing this I am also mindful of recent
discussions about thanking (or rather the lack of thanking) which sometimes
occurs when postings are made and responses provided.

An interesting story. #general

Mokihana
 

Hello everyone...

I was just told an interesting story about my grandfather (Charles
FRIEDMAN) by my auntie. My mother was disinclined to believe the
stories my grandfather told, but here goes.

He was >from Lithuania (maybe) and somehow ended up in a Russian prison.
He and three or four others escaped; the others ran off into the woods
but Grandpa hid against the wall. The others were found, but not him.
For the next couple of years, dressed as a woman, he roamed the
countryside getting food where he could. Somehow he ended up on the
ship to America and the rest is history.

The census records say he's >from Minsk, Russia. But now I hear he's from
Lithuania. Geneaology research sure makes for a lot of puzzle pieces!

What a great group of people this place is. I so appreciate getting
to know all of you.

Hello everyone..

I just found this website and wondered if any of you have subscribed to it.
It sounds very tempting, because I'm also trying to find out information
about the other side of my family as well as my Jewish side.

http://www.newspaperarchive.com/Newspaper-Dates/

Has the subscription price been worth it? Do you think that the information
is available at no charge somewhere?

I am >from Hawai'i, and would love to get newspapers >from the time we lived

How - correct a Social Security death record #general

Debbie Pomerance
 

Hi,

I checked the Social Security site, and I submitted an online question
(got an automated response based on words within my question, rather
then an answer >from a human).

I know that the last known residence for my father's record is wrong.
Could have been something as simple as a transposed zip code which
put the location in the wrong town and state.

I can send them a death cert to get it changed, but I have no idea
how to. What form does one submit to do this?

Thanks in advance.

Occupation change: blacksmith to tailor #general

The Becker's Email
 

Dear Genners,

On a ship's manifest for 1909 Shmerl Kugel, age 27 is listed as a "smith".
His naturalization papers give his occupation as blacksmith. ( I should
note that he changed his name to Sam Cohen.) In the Rochester, NY city
directories he is listed as a blacksmith through the 1919 directory. In the
Rochester city directories for 1920 through 1929 he is listed as a tailor.
I believe it is the same man as the wife Fanny is the same and the address
is. (He did move in the 1920s). On the 1930 census he is listed as a junk
dealer. It seems unreasonable to me that someone who likely apprenticed as
a blacksmith and is listed as such for a number of years would suddenly have
the skills to become a tailor. I can understand that, with the advent of
the automobile, the need for blacksmiths would diminish and he would change
occupations but to a tailor which I would think would require specialized
skills seems unreasonable. There was a big clothing industry in Rochester
and usually the city directories will list various occupations such as
"presser" within the clothing industry. So, if he worked in some other
capacity within the clothing industry, I would think it would be listed. I
can understand the junk dealer on the 1930 Rochester, Monroe, NY census. as
this may be the result of the depression.

I would appreciate any insights on such a dramatic change.
Thank you,
