Re: Why is saying thank you often overlooked? #general

I agree that if you go out of your way and do special work for someone they
should always write and say thank you.

But as someone who I am sure who is guilty of this offense -- sometimes
when you post to the discussion group and you get numerous responses it is
very difficult to make sure you say thank you to everyone who replies
personally or via the group. I am sure there is no offense intended ....
sometimes when you are looking at 20, 30, 40 responses it gets difficult
at least for me to keep track an make sure I have replied to everyone.

Seeking death record of Barnett (aka Benjamin) WOOLF #general

Naidia Woolf <rnwoolf@...>
 

Dear All,

I've searched every possible source for both the death record and obituary
notice for my late uncle, Barnett (aka Benjamin) WOOLF who died in the City
of Los Angeles between 1961 and 1964. Online sources already checked include
the California Death Records (Los Angeles City and County) and the SSDI
(Social Security Death Index). I have also tried to find his obituary notice
online - in the old newspaper (fee-based) obituaries. (Can't afford to pay a
membership fee for a single obit!)

First Name: Barnett (or Benjamin)
Last Name: WOOLF
Father's last name: WOOLF
Mother's maiden name: ISAACS
DOB: 1909
Place of Birth: Birmingham, England

I've even tried to locate his death records by entering his last name as
BARNETT but that didn't help.

I know that Uncle died in Los Angeles in the early 1960s because I lived
with him when I first moved to California (in the late 1950s), visited him
shortly before his death, and attended his funeral. (I believe he was
interred at the Forest Lawn cemetery.) Uncle Barnett was an interesting
individual who had an interior design shop in Hollywood on Melrose Avenue at
La Cienega (now a Disney Memorabilia store) that catered to a lot of
celebrities including movie stars. He was instrumental in introducing the
stretched linen "tailored" lamp shade to California consumers at a time when
the fashion was all frills and flounces.

Any suggestions re how to locate Barnett WOOLF's death records will be
appreciated. Please reply privately.

All,

Following are links to the photos of three headstones of family
members. I know they aren't super-clear (they are quite old and
didn't photograph well), but I'd appreciate any help in translating
the Hebrew to English. Am trying to verify parents, etc., and any
clues in there will help. If it's any help, all of the surnames are
TUSKA.

Arrival of Miriam GOLD BERNSTEIN #general

Paul Silverstone
 

The sister of my great-grandmother Miriam GOLD BERNSTEIN arrived in
Canada after World War I. She died in Winnipeg in 1925 said to be 98
years old.
Her maiden name was Gold and she was married to Itzig Bernstein and had
five children. They were divorced but remained friendly, living in
Kremenets, now Ukraine.
He remarried and had five more children. By the time of the war, he
had died and all ten children had emigrated. Left alone, she wrote to
her sister and came to Canada.
I have been unable to find her in any passenger manifests. I had hoped
that the opening and digitization of the Canadian arrivals after 1919
would help find her but still no Miriam. She could have traveled under
either Bernstein or Gold.
Any suggestions?

For me, it's not so much the thank you as knowing whether and how the work I
did or the information I supplied advanced the person's research.

Getting a thank you is nice but it isn't why we do the research for others.
The thank you is just the frosting on the cake. The cake is that great
feeling "we" get as genealogists in being able to help someone find his
roots or whatever...

Trinidad detention camp #general

Thomas F. Weiss
 

Dear fellow Jgenners,

I am researching a cousin's family that left Vienna around 1938 and I
am guessing that they went to England. In any case, they wound up in
a detention camp in Trinidad, British West Indies (BWI) around 1940.
They spent 1940-1945 in the detention camp, immigrating to the US in
1945. I am interested in two questions:

(1) Does anyone know where I can find general information on this
detention/POW camp or more generally on detention camps in the BWI? I
have searched the Internet and some academic libraries for information
and found only tangential references to such camps in the BWI.

(2) Does anyone know where I might be able to obtain lists of people
detained in camps in the BWI?

Many thanks for your help,
