Lucille Gudis #galicia

Shelley K. Pollero
 

It is with deep sadness that the Jewish Genealogical Society announces the
untimely passing of former Vice President, 2006 IAJGS Conference Co-Chair,
longtime Executive Council member and member of the JewishGen Board of
Governors, Lucille Gudis. Her tireless and generous devotion to the Jewish
genealogical community, her genealogical expertise and inspiration, her
warmth and treasured friendship, will all be sorely missed. The Society
will be establishing a memorial fund in honor of Lucille; details will be
posted at our website (www.jgsny.org).

May the family of Lea Bat Sosha be consoled among the mourners of Zion and
Jerusalem.

The "Wiener Library" in London #germany

H.Peter Sinclair <peter@...>
 

Following Joseph Goldsmidt's comments I can explain an apparent
"overlap" between the "The Institute of Contemporary History and
Wiener Library" in London http://www.wienerlibrary.co.uk/ and the
'Wiener Collection' in Tel Aviv University
http://www.tau.ac.il/libraries-eng.html referred to by him.

In 1974 the Wiener Library, then located in its entirety in London,
experienced a funding crisis and it was decided to move the collection
to Tel Aviv. However, funding did come to support a microfilming
project and after two years, much of the material being sent away had
been preserved in London with the book stock being sent to Israel in 1980.

The 'Wiener Library' in London occupies an entire building these days.

Happy Chanukah >from Peter Sinclair in London <peter@...>

Re: Grave photos - Smith #latvia

To Bill "the barefoot jeweler"
your response on the translation of KUSNETZOV brings back what I once
remember hearing >from my Father (who I think said his Father was a
Goldsmith) indicating the translation of Kusnetzky.

.....and so......I believed for many years that my gf was a goldsmith
until I very recently obtained his death certificate indicating that
he was "a PRESSER"!!!!!!!!!!! Quite a difference!
Thanks for your response.

Godfrey Memorial Library #general

Marlene Bishow
 

Hi Cousins:

I asked for and my kids delivered a membership in the Godfrey memorial
Library, Middletown, CT
http://www.godfrey.org/ for Chanukah.

The notice came a few days ago and I have been having fun finding the
addresses and birthdates for several cousins. In some cases, I was able to
identify spouses and children through joint ownership of property, etc.
using the "Find USA" database.

I am approaching my renewal date for Ancestry and I need to figure out
whether or not to keep or modify it. The Godfrey membership is only $35 and
Ancestry runs into many more $$$$$$. I am interested in hearing >from other
JewishGenners regarding what features/functions of Godfrey you have
successfully used, so I can make my decision.

May your candles burn brightly and your latkes melt in your mouth!

Long Island geography and history #general

<<In the Ancestry 1860 Census, Michael SANDMAN has been entered as

This Michael SANDMAN came >from Krojanke in Prussia & died in an
asylum in Middleton, NY in 1890.>>

First of all, a little about Long Island's crazy geography...

The Town of Oyster Bay is one of three large towns that make up
Nassau County, Long Island. These towns are large political divisions
-- more like townships in other states; they are made up of many
smaller communities. Then there's also the unincorporated community
of Oyster Bay, that's part of the Town of Oyster Bay! (See

www.nassaucountyny.gov/agencies/Clerk/ClerkServices/vitalrecords.html#towns)

In 1860, Nassau County did not yet exist, and the Town of Oyster Bay
was part of Queens County.

Looking at the 1860 census, I see that Michael and family's page says
they lived in the Town of Oyster Bay, Post Office Glen Cove. That
notation suggests they lived in or near the City of Glen Cove, which
is now in the Town of North Hempstead.

Although Nassau County now has many heavily Jewish communities, there
was little or no Jewish communal life in Nassau County before the end
of the 19th century. According to an article on Long Island's Jewish
history published in Newsday (www.tinyurl.com/bjw6p), Congregation
Tifereth Israel, one of Long Island's oldest synagogues, was founded
in Glen Cove in 1897. An article on CTI's history at
www.ctionline.org/history.html mentions that "a family named Sandman
became the first Jewish family to settle in Glen Cove." That article
also mentions the first burial "in the synagogue plot at the Old
Montefiore Cemetery in Springfield Gardens." (www.montefiores.com )

Yes, it is still in operation. You would have to call them to find out
about the availability of records. Leslie Weinberg

Can anyone tell me if the Manhatten State Hospital on Wards Island, NY City,

To start, this seems to be in the Eger region in Hungary. If you go the URL
above (the entire line, but with no spaces) you will finda website referring
to the area.

Also, for searching the Hungarian Internet, Google has the Hungarian
version, giving possibly more info then the US version: Go to (without the spaces)
http : // www. google.co.hu and enter the town name: Homonna. You may be
able to find text other then Hungarian.

APPELDORFER- Hungary/ Carpathia #hungary

Nathan Rosenshein <nrosen@...>
 

I have extensive information in my family tree concerning my ancestors,
the APPELDORFER (APPELDORF) Family of Bialosovits, Carpathia.

At present, descendants of this branch of the family are represented in
Israel, USA, Belgium, Canada, and other countries.

The patriarch of the family (oldest ancestor known to me) is Yosef Zev
Appeldorfer who was born about 1800-1810 in Drohovich, Galicia. I have
researched approximately 600 descendants of his.

I have a particular research interest in his son Dov Ber (Berish)
APPELDORFER, my great great grandfather.

Please communicate with me if you have any pertinent information to
share concerning this family. Of course, I would be gald to help you in
your research as well.

Thanks,

Nathan ROSENSHEIN,
Montreal, Canada
