Do you recognize? (Photo ID) #general

Flo Elman
 

Dear Genners,
I have a photo of a young fellow on Viewmate. It is very important that we
learn his identification. Today, he would be quite old, and have roughly
children in their late fifties. He lived in Montreal, Quebec, Canada and may
have moved there about 1939 (*possibly* >from Poland or elsewhere in Eastern
Europe). If you recognize him, and can give me his name or any other
information, please let me know. Responses should be be sent directly to
me - *not* to the List. The file will remain on the JewishGen ViewMate site
for at least 7 days.

The file is up on the ViewMate site -

Privacy on the internet #general

Dorothy Harper <dorothyharper17@...>
 

I have been reading through my Jewishgen digests and noticed some people
concerned about privacy with our families on the internet.

I have Family Tree Maker, with a Home Page and I am just beginning to put my
"book" on my home page.

I went to google. com and typed in: " Kaplan Dorothy"

The second article was me: (apparently there are other famous Dorothy
Kaplans, not me)

"Kaplan Family Genealogy ForumEzra Kaplan & Fanny Cohen, Russia to Conn. to
Canada - Dorothy Kaplan/Hochberg/Harper 11/02/02. Re: Ezra Kaplan & Fanny
Cohen, Russia to Conn. to Canada ...
genforum.genealogy.com/kaplan/ - 26k - Cached - Similar pages "

I then clicked and got several other Kaplan researchers.

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=Kaplan+Dorothy&btnG=Google+Search

I don't know why, but this disturbs me. Obviously my family hasn't been
harrased since I started my genealogy, I am wondering what others think of
this. I have a feeling that if I typed in all my family names I would come
up with my Family Tree.

I remember that years ago I notified Google to delete my home phone number,
when clicked on it gave not only my address but a map on how to get to my
house.

We are all on the internet. This is a fact of life. Should we be
concerned?

town of Neris-les-Bains (in Allier near Montlucon), >from Marseille,
from the region around Perpignan, and >from Drancy.
I would appreciate receiving recommendations about competent,

Re: Ben Bernanke-Roots #poland

Mark Halpern
 

Although I know nothing about Ben Bernanke's roots, I suggest that Jacob
and others use the JRI-Poland database to determine where in Poland a
surname was used.

If you search the JRI-Poland database for BERNANKE, the only area where
this name appears is in index entries >from Boryslaw, Drohobycz, Sambor,
and Skole -- all >from the southeastern part of Ukraine, formerly
Galicia. All these towns are within 40 miles of the others.

Alexander Beider's book "A Dictionary of Jewish Surnames >from Galicia"
states that the roots of this name is unclear.

Dear Galitzianers and other researchers,
The new Chairman of Federal Reserve bears a surname
which sounds Galitzian.

Without infringing into his privacy which should be
respected I wonder where are they >from and when did
they reach the US?

Re: Patterns of moving from one town to another #lithuania

water wind & stars <shiralunacy@...>
 

In addition to marriage and family as reasons, there is PARNOSSE
(making a living). Jews' occupations were limited and towns were small
(even Vilna wasn't a big city in the sense of a modern metropolis).
How many shoemakers, tailors, seamstresses, water-carriers, shammeses
(shul caretakers), and petty tradesmen could any one shtetl support?
Think about how many Jews became peddlars because of the limited
opportunities to make money in any one place. Sometimes young people
moved to nearby shtetls (often to live with relatives) so they could
apprentice and learn a craft.

The difficult economic reality is a factor never to lose sight of.
There were of course successful Jews who built up their businesses --
not everybody was poor -- but even well-off families could and did lose
everything when the "winds of war" swept through or when the borders
moved or when they fell victim to a pogrom.

Precarious..... precarious... precarious.... "the fiddler on the roof"
who could slide off at any moment. I think the most all-encompassing
answer to Tamar's question is that Jews moved in order to survive.

Sonia Kovitz

Several men in my 19th century Litvak family who
lived in Keidan and Vilna were originally >from other towns [Siaulenai,
Kraziai, Siauliai]. I would like to have an educated guess as to why
they moved.

Their cousins the METTERS (name is skewed, Madter, Muder, Matter), also
