Re Robert Dodell's posting on what to do with old photos:

Could Genners please state which country they live in, as this can have
a bearing on responses?

Dear moderator of the H SIG list,

I am not sure that M. Amsel-Arieli previously sent Email to this group or to
the Romania SIG list. If it was this list, please note that I strongly
object to her signing her message with a website which advertises her book.
No one should be allowed to use the SIG forum as a means of advertising a
product or a service they sell, promote or derive some benefit from.
Signatures should consist solely of name and location.

Thank you Miriam Taylor

Moderator: The book in question can be purchased at the JewishGen Mall, which is the sole reason why the tag line was included with the message. The Moderator apologizes for not including an explanation to that effect. JewishGen is currently evaluating this policy.

Dear Group,

Does anyone have information regarding Menachem Mendeal
LEBOWICZ (c.1875 - 1944) married to Alte Chana Bayla
JUROWICZ (1875-1944). Both perished in the Holocaust. They
lived in Nagykallo and had several children. One was Tzvi,
born 1902 and presumed perished as well.

I am interested in finding out more detail about this
family as well as possible survivors.

Re: missing Ellis Island manifest #general

phylliskramer1@...
 

Morris was frustrated when the Ellis Island on-line manifests was "missing"
If the data exists, there are other ways to get it: (I might add, the
"old fashioned way"...<g>)

1. NARA (national archives in NY and Washington)...they have the microfilm...
some of the other local branches may have them too. You can call and ask.

2. Local libraries & genealogical societies: (i've seen many at the NY public
library at 42nd st, at the NY B&G, and in the main Savannah public library)

3. Certainly the Mormon Family History Library has the microfilm
Begin with their online catalog
http://tinyurl.com/9bsjr
Select the film#. On the same web page there is a search for the nearest
library; order the film and view the manifest (if possible, print it in order
to review it later)

Happy Hunting!
