Zvi Bernhardt of Yad Vashem has asked me to post this message regarding
difficulties experienced by researchers using the Yad Vashem Database.

JewishGen VP, Data Acquisitions

On Yom Hashoah, we [Yad Vashem] put up a whole new site. We did this
in order to integrate a Russian interface for the site, a very
important move as we have also started a project to collect Pages of
Testimony among Russian speaking Jews. The project is currently being
carried out in the Ukraine and in Israel.

Like most new sites, the new site has bugs. We have sorted out most of
the bugs, but the site is still not as stable as the site we had before
Yom Hashoah. At this point, most of the time it works fine, but the
problems described below happens every few days. Our computer people
are working hard to solve the problem as quickly as possible.

PLEASE write us at central.database@... if you encounter
technical problems with our site. We usually aren't able to answer you
quickly enough to help you, but you help us (and yourself in the long
run) by making sure we know all the problems that exist.

ViewMate Translation Help VM8052, VM8053 and VM8054 - Russian, handwritten #general

Dear Genners,

VM8052, 8053 and 8054 are two letters and one postcard written in August
1946 by Leo (Lev) Zuckermann in Switzerland to his youth friend Jacob
Robinson. Unfortunately, my knowledge of Russian is very limited, and
since the letters are handwritten I have even more trouble finding out
what's all about. I would be grateful for any help.

Transferring money to Ukraine in 1914 #general

krippens <krippens@...>
 

Can anyone help me with this question? I am interested to know how money
might have been transferred >from the United States to Ukraine in
1913-1914. If someone in the US wanted to get money to someone in the
Ukraine, what would have been the preferred method? Was there a way to
wire money? Would it have to have been hand-carried or would it have
been sent in the mail?

Thanks very much,

Jewish maids #general

Ida & Joseph Schwarcz
 

Dear friends,
To follow through on Jewish women as domestic servants-- During the years of
mass immigration of Jews >from Eastern Europe to the US, many of the classes
set up for the new immigrants, to teach them how to adapt to life in the US,
were geared to domestic service for women ( sewing, cooking, cleaning, etc.)
and manual labor for men. To the dismay, astonishment, ? of the middle
class (often German Jewish) sponsors of these classes, the younger
immigrants opted for academics and many graduated >from high school and
college.
My parents were very poor, but did not even let me baby-sit for money
because that meant I would be a "maid." If my services were required by a
neighbor, my mother made me baby-sit for free!
Sincerely,
Ida Selavan Schwarcz
Arad, Israel


Re: Mothers Patronymic #general

Sally Bruckheimer
 

If the mother had a family name that looked like a
patronymic, and the child was 'illegitimate' according
to the government (because the parents only married
religiously, not civilly), then the child would be
given the mother's family name. I think this is more
likely than taking what really was his mother's
patronymic.
