Was this common, not aloud, or what?
I had two aunts who married two brothers, but this was in London in the
1920s-1930s.

Maybe you could donate them to a local Jewish museum (or possibly non-Jewish
museum). I am sure that they would advise you what best to do with them.

I am sure that they would be used to dealing with such questions.

To all -

For those who have not read Alexander Beider's book on Jewish Given Names
or attended one of Warren Blatt's sessions on the same topic, here is the
link to Warren's excellent outline of the topic.

This really helps you understand what we are dealing with when it

Hello All --

I'm seeking opinions and thoughts about the connection of various
given names. Briefly, this is the situation:


One day seminar at Beit Hatefutzot on 28 November 2005 #lithuania

Martha LEV-ZION <martha@...>
 

The Israel Genealogical Society is very pleased to announce that the
one day seminar now includes Karen Franklin as a speaker! Karen will
give us a talk on mining the Jewishgen databases, something we can
all learn from!

Please look at the new schedule for the Yom Iyun - "Family Roots in
the Land of Israel and in the World" which can be found at this URL:

isragen.org.il/NROS/YY2005/

We have very few places left for the seminar and will likely be
closing registration by the end of this month due to a full house.
Please register now if you intend to come!

Palm Beach County Library's genealogy service #general

Renee Steinig <rsteinig@...>
 

The May/June 2004 issue of Public Libraries, a publication of the Public
Library Association, featured an article entitled "Providing Genealogy
Research Services in Public Libraries." The article specifically mentions
the Palm Beach County (Florida) Library System's Genealogy Research website
and electronic email services, staffed by two professional research
librarians.

According to the article, the PBCLS staff will respond at no charge and
usually within 24 hours to requests for "locator searches" for current and
deceased residents of Palm Beach County, using archival city directories,
the Florida Death Index, local cemetery directory records, and the indexes
and microfilm of three South Florida newspapers.

EIDB- Deciphering a Place Name #general

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Genners,
I looked at EIDB for Salomon Perlberg who arrived with
his 3 children on June 6th,1899.
The place of origin is given as Zatrn. Upon looking at
the original manifest I realized that it is Zab??.
As far as I know they are >from the Tarnow area. The
first thing which comes to mind is Zabno but I need an
experienced eye to confirm/refute or to come with a
better solution.
Thanks.
