New research tools from the LDS Family History Library #germany

A & B Algaze <Algaze@...>
 

As the librarian for the Los Angeles Jewish Genealogical Society of Los
Angeles I spend a lot of time at our local Family History Center. I have
been asked on numerous occasions whether (and when) the Salt Lake City,
Utah, based Family History Library will be converting their resources to CD
or digital format.

The latest "skinny" is that they are presently planning to convert all of
their microfilm collection to digital images. They have been working on it
since September of 2005 and they are presently projecting that they will
have the project completed in six years (more or less.) As the materials
are scanned, they will be put on their website for all of us to access.

In addition, they are also digitizing published family histories--starting
with those that are out of copyright. About 5,000 were on-line as of
September 1st and they are digitizing about 100 volumes per week.

The URI for this materials is www.lib.byu.edu

As the material goes on-line, they are creating links >from the material to
the digitized website. You can do a preliminary hunt by following these
directions:

1) Go to www.familysearch.org
2) Click on Family History Library Catalog (one of the tabs on the top of
the page)
3) Click on Author Search
4) Type in [for example] Potter, then Lucy
5) Click on Potter, Lucy Closson Austin
6) Click on the title
7) Scroll down to red, which says "To view a digital version of the this
book, click here."

You can search for names, photographs, maps, etc. in the BYU Digitalized
records at the following site:

http://contentdm.lib.byu.edu/cgi-bin/advsearch.exe

I hope this information is helpful in your research.

According to a Lubavitch website www.lchaimweekly.org/lchaim/5753/279.htm
the father of the former Lubavitcher Rebbe whose name was Levi was
affectionately known as "Leivik", so this is an affectionate name for Levi,
which is a Hebrew name. Levi was one of the sons of Jacob in Genesis.

This website contains information about the Jewish cemetery in Zweibrucken
(actually Jewish part of the general cemetery)
www.alemannia-judaica.de/kus_ps_kl_zw_friedhoefe.htm.

Presumably if the family was Jewish there would be some record of a burial
in the cemetery.

The above website is in German, but it does give a contact in Zweibrucken
who you could presumably write to.

Chicago address for ABELSON/BRODY #general

Ginger de Winter <Ginger@...>
 

Dear Friends

I recently found in the JGFF a lead to my ABELSON family, possibly from
Kolno, only to find out that the lead had died. I am most anxious to
contact her cousin as I can find no trace at all in jri-pl or anywhere
else for my Abelsons.

If you can do a look up of an address in Chicago, please contact me privately.

I'm looking for the family of Lewis and Eva (nee PERLMAN/PERLMUTER).
They were married in the Bronx in 1924, had a daughter Ruth born in 1927
and were living on Quincy Street in Brooklyn with Lewis' mother Dora in 1930 (
per census).

Lewis' parents were Uscar and Dora (nee LIEBSTA) SCHOR >from Austria.

Eva's parents were Victor and Rachel (nee MUSZKATEL) PERLMAN/PERLMUTER
from Przasnysz (Proshnitz).
Eva's grandmother was born Cywa ZYLBERMAN and was the sister of my
gg-grandfather Yehuda Leib ZYLBERMAN.

If this sounds familiar, please contact me privately at

Dear Genners,

A very good friend of mine has asked me for assistance. Her daughter will be
visiting Warsaw this summer and she ants to look for the address of her
grandparents. Hia and Hiam KAPLAN.

Can anyone suggest how I can discover their address ?

Hiam and Hia lived in Warsaw prior to World War 2. Hia died in the Holocaust
but Hiam survived and arrived in Palestine after the war.

With many thanks,

In the Warsaw telephone directory for 1938-9 there are two listings
for "Ch. A. Kaplan", which would fit the name of "Hiam" as you have
given it. They are both for the same person, who is director of a
school. The school is at ul. Dzielna 15; he resides at ul. Nowolipki
20. The telephone numbers (as if this means anything) are respectively
11 57 13 and 11 58 07.

I have maps of Warsaw and can look to see if these streets are still
listed by the same name; if you want me to do that, drop me a line. If
the addresses are in the area of the former ghetto, of course, they
are either gone or likely have been renamed, but I think I remember
these names.

street's name where Kaplons lived in 1854 year. Anyway, remember that during
the IIWar the buildings and streets in Warsaw were destroyed.
