How **not** to write an email to this list #germany

Fellow GerSIG members:

A computer error or human error by an overtired Moderator allowed a
badly composed email message to be sent to you yesterday, 5 August.
While the content of this message was helpful and appreciated,
the form of the email was not.

The text in the message "Graves on Weissensee cemetery Berlin" should
have been compressed so that the message was not so long. The Moderator
was holding the message until he had time to remove the excess empty
space within that text. Somehow the message was sent before it could
be recomposed.

Email to our list should *** never *** look like the one with the subject:
"Graves on Weissensee cemetery Berlin"

I apologize for the error that allowed the badly formed text to be sent to you.

It's important you recognize this very long message as an example
of how *** not *** to construct your email to our list.

of the Lodz ghetto will be remembered during 25-29th August. I was directed
to this link http://www.ghetto.lodz.pl/index.php/en/program which gives the

Seeking info. WW1 Army recruits. #unitedkingdom

wilsonettess@...
 

Dear friends,

I am seeking to find out if a member of the family served in the British Army
during WW1.

Documentation held by this person's brother - identity book stamped Liverpool
1916 - under 'State whether applicant has or has had any male relatives in arms
for or against Great Britain and Allies during the present war - state Yes or No.
' - the applicant says Yes and gives the name of his brother, then
'For' - in the column For or Against.

It was thought this particular brother had died in the Lodz ghetto but
with this new information it appears he arrived in the UK in the early
1900s. We do not know if this brother was married, we only have his name.

Any information as to where to apply for information be it Liverpool or
elsewhere would be gratefully appreciated.

The MOD website does not as far as I can see supply information on recruits -
perhaps I am wrong?

Thanking you in anticipation.

Their Ketubah states they were married in London, although no name is

Dora's siblings were believed to be Freda, Sadie, Ralph, and Harry (known as

Rosenstein #unitedkingdom

Dear Jewish Gen.....

There are a zillion Rosensteins and few of them seem to be related.
Is there some way to determine national or international origins of a name
-- or is it simply a maze? The same with Rosenblooms. The more I look,
the more I find who appear to have no traceable relationship to my family.
After 20 years and at 85 I'm becoming rather disillusioned with genealogy.
Do you think time, science and genetics will give those in the future more hope?

Judith,

I know of no "Free" site for Scotland, the only site that I know that has a
reasonable unit cost is Scotland's People at
http://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/search/previous_searches.aspx?x=633851518463428006.752202

You need to "Sign Up" first before you can use the free search facility. To
view a record it costs 1 unit to view the record, if the record is the one
that you are looking for you can order a certificate >from this website at
reasonable cost.

The Family History Center here in Pittsburgh has one of its film
readers connected to a desktop PC with scanning software. I just
bring a USB flash drive and get the scanned pages that way (and it
holds many more than a CD would).

I suggest calling the centers that are convenient for you and asking
them about their setup.
