The WOLFSTHAL Family of Musicians #unitedkingdom

Yaron Wolfsthal
 

Dear Group,
I'm new to the group, allow me to take a minute and introduce myself.
For quite some time I'm researching my family roots >from Galicia. It
was a large family, with special music talents. Some of them became
quite famous in this field.

In the beginning of the previous century, a part of the family
immigrated to the UK, in few waves. Among them were musicians (a)
Isidor WOLFSTHAL, (2) Kopel (Charles) WOLFSTHAL and (3) Abraham Ber
WOLFSTHAL . Family tradition continued, and some of their children
were also musicians (e.g., David WOLFSTHAL, son of Charles, who played
with the Beatles).

At this stage in my research, to address many remaining gaps, I
believe it's important for me to examine the tombstones of the family
members who passed away in the UK and see if any information can be
found there.

In particular, I am interested in a photo of Rose WOLFSTHAL's
tombstone (August 20, 1909). She was buried in Edmonton Federation
Cemetery in London, Plot F, Row/Grave 8. If anyone is anywhere near
that location and can send me a photo, I'd be greatly appreciative.

Any additional information on this family's life stories would be of
great help. Thank you in advance.

Re: Replying individually to someone who has posted a message

bjls@...
 

Barbara, when I click on the sender's name, I do not get an email address. Does this approach work when you receive emails in a digest or daily summary or only when you receive the emails individually?  Any guidance you can offer would be helpful. Thanks. -Jodi Benjamin 


Re: All of my hashtags are locked,

bjls@...
 

Fran,

I think the picture you showed indicates that your hashtags are unmuted. If you wanted to mute them, you would click on the mute button. Like you, I'm still trying to understand how to get messages from the SIG groups and whether the SIGs from the old system correspond to the hashtags in the new system.

Seeking clarity,

Jodi Benjamin


Re: Replying individually to someone who has posted a message

Bruce Drake
 

Barbara ... Does this work in the digests? I just clicked on your name in your reply to me and it showed nothing. The digests are the only way I see these messages as my inbox is too busy to received individual ones


Replying to messages and besieged with digests

Janette Silverman
 

It would probably cut down the number of meaningless (to most
subscribers) messages if people would start responding directly to a
person rather than the digest when the message is personal. A lot of
the conversations that are part of this new "plan" are really
meaningless to most readers. It is of course really difficult to
respond to a person when all that shows up is a person's name, no
email address and there is not an option that is easy to see which
allows for responding directly to a person rather than the group. Also
having messages with no discernible name of the author doesn't help if
you wanted to know who the person submitting the message is.

Keeping the discourse polite should also still be observed, which I
have noticed over the last several days is not always the case.

Major changes for JewishGen Email discussion list #germany

John Paul Lowens <jplowens@...>
 

If this is the first GerSIG message you have seen in the past week,
part of the reason for that may be this:

Jewishgen has started to make big changes in its Email discussion
group lists.

The JGDG - JewishGen Discussion Group is the first to be changed to
a new system.

If you don't read your JGDG Email regularly you may not recognize
it. There are major changes in its format and operation.

JGDG Digests now have the subject:

"[JewishGen.org] JewishGen.org Discussion Group - Digest #___"

More information can be found at the JewishGen website.
Also, in the more than daily JewishGen Digests. User problems and
suggestions on how to solve these problems are included in almost
every single edition of the new JGDG.

Reportedly, JewishGen's leader plans to move SIG lists like GerSIG's to
the new format. Hopefully, most of the many reported problems will be
resolved before we become a beneficiary of JewishGen's latest improvement.

Re: Comments about format change

Karen Gwynn
 

I am not an active member of this site, but I do read through my emails looking for topics of interest (surnames and locations). I find the new format easy to use on my computer while online. I have not tried using while offline, so I cannot address any of the issues I've heard others mention. I like being able to quickly jump to a topic and then get back to the table of contents.

I hope it all settles out soon.

didn't any source who description is "lists of businesses" or
something of this sort.

Thank you.

Re: PLEASE READ: Multiple Digest Issues

Deborah Blinder
 

I suspect that once the focus of messages in this discussion group turns back to genealogy and away from the new format, the digests will likely dwindle to one a day. Before the change, there were rarely more than 12 posts in a daily digest.

Re: Multiple digests

vogelko
 

Dear all -
I too found the multiple daily digests very annoying, and switched to "daily summary", which I find very comfortable. 
I really like the interactive interface in the new format, which allows one to easily see all messages in a thread, as well as all the other new bells and whistles. 
That having been said, I would like to point out that this is indeed a change that might take some getting used to, by us the users.  
Also - using the daily summary makes it that much more important to use a meaningful subject line. 

Thanks for your good work.
