Superstitions #unitedkingdom

malcolm katz <malkikatz9361@...>
 

Many thanks for the replies keep them coming as its
very intresting to know why i do these things.
I was also bought up with the worst thing that can
happen is a bird flies into your house but it depends
what bird!!
This is very much lost in the mists of time to me,But
i believe it sygnifies also death being bought into
the house.
Please believe i had a very happy house and modern
thinking family,But on the keys on table and birds
there was genuine fear and concern.
So again if anyone knows this one i find it intresting
and going by replies so do other people.
Kind regards

1770 Bay Ridge Pkwy, Brooklyn #general

Monica Talmor
 

I need help finding out who manages the building at 1770 75th St. in
Brooklyn, also known as Bay Ridge Parkway. I don't know if it's a condo
complex, or private apartments, or rented apartments, but it has multiple
residents and I'm trying to find out what happened to a family that lived
there in the 1960's. I know about the ACRIS website, and what I found there
is that the mortgage on the property was all paid off in 1993, and there is
a person's name there, but I'm not sure that's the place to start. Maybe
someone on this list lives close to that address and can give me a phone
number to contact.

Thanks for any help,

VIEWMATE: Translation from RUSSIAN or POLISH of Certificates in JRI-POLAND #lodz #poland

Eva Blanket
 

Hello all,

I would dearly like some help in translating some family 'Birth' & 'Death'
details I've found through research in the JRI-POLAND database.

I think they are written in RUSSIAN (but possibly POLISH ?). I require them
to be fully translated into English, if possible.

I appreciate any assistance and thank you most kindly in advance.
Could you reply privately.

Belchatow Birds-of-a-Feather (BOF) Meeting #lodz #poland

Roni S. Liebowitz
 

The Belchatow Birds-of-a-Feather (BOF) will hold its annual meeting at the
IAJGS International Genealogy Conference http://www.jgsny2006.org following
the Lodz Area Research Group (LARG) meeting. It will take place at the
Marriott Marquis Hotel in Times Square, New York on:

Tuesday, August 15
4:45-6:00
Soho Room on the 7th floor

Belchatow is part of the Lodz Area Research Group, so I suggest if you are
researching Belchatow, try to attend both sessions. Groholice which was once
a separate town is now part of Belchatow and included in this BOF meeting.

Belchatow is located approximately 27 miles south of Lodz in Poland. Nearby
Jewish towns and villages include: Kamiensk, Lask, Pabianice, Piotrkow
Trybunalski, Radomsko, Rozprza, Sulejow (Silev), Sulmierzyce, Szczercow,
Tomaszow Mazowiecki, Tuszyn, Widawa, and Zelow. See thee ShtetLink site for
more information: http://www.jri-Poland.org/belchatow.htm .

If you are planning to join us, please sign-up at:
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Lodz/signup.htm DO NOT enter your
spouse's name if he/she is not attending or has no roots within Belchatow
(or any of the LARG towns). List the surnames you are researching from
Belchatow. This is the signup for both LARG and Belchatow researchers.

You can also see who else is planning to attend, by clicking on "click here
to see who is going to be there" at the bottom of the sign-in page. Even if
you cannot attend this meeting due to conflicts in your schedule, please
indicate the surnames you are looking for in Belchatow so that others at the
meeting can contact you.

I am also requesting that if you have records for surnames that others in
the group are researching, please bring copies to share with them.

There are a few major projects for Belchatow that will be initiated soon. I
need your input to decide priorities and process.

I look forward to seeing everyone again and meeting "new" Belchatow
researchers who have not attended this meeting before. Be sure to check out
the Belchatow websites below.

See you in August,

I am also requesting that if you have records for surnames you see listed on
that page, please bring copies to share with people at the meeting
researching them.

Town Contacts attending, please bring reports about your towns for us to
share. For those new to genealogical research, we will review what is
available in this area and how to begin. For those seasoned researchers,
please bring your best pointers to share about doing this research, getting
around, over, under or through those brick walls, etc.

We will begin a very large and significant project soon. Details will be
announced at the meeting.

I look forward to seeing everyone again and meeting "new" Lodz Area
Researchers who have not attended this group meeting before. Based on the
impressive number of new subscribers to the LARG discussion group, I see
there are many of you and look forward to welcoming you all.

All the best,
Roni
