Ron Russ <rsruss@...>
 

I didn't know if anyone is willing to translate this record or not,
but I figured I'd post them and see. The ViewMate number is VM6954 and
the URL for ViewMate is http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/toview.html.

The contents are supposed to be the birth record of Zorych Baum >from 1858
and are in Polish. Please send responses to rsruss@comcast.net

BTW, thanks to everyone who has translated items for me in the past.
It is much appreciated. Thanks in advance to those who work on this one.

Robert:
Have you contacted the college? Some schools have a keen sense of
history and would be grateful for items that can be associated with an
individual, a date, and a place.

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.

Of What Use Old Photographs #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Robert & Cousins,

I get this terribly empty feeling feeling in my stomach when I think of
throwing old photographs away... So my solution would be this: if you're
going to make a "book" of some sort, which we all plan to do, or do
periodically, to share with our family, put these photos in simply to show
representative appearances of people in that time, at that place. In some
ineffable way, your more imaginative family members might even try to guess
at who these people were, what adventures they had with your grandfather.

Re: Old photos of non-relatives #general

Naidia Woolf <rnwoolf@...>
 

I had a very satisfying (& productive) experience along those lines. A year
or so ago I posted a group pix of my father taken in the late '40's or
early '50's in Birmingham, England, where he (and the family) lived. The
pix was posted to the British-Jewry online newsgroup (a great group of
people, BTW). The outcome was that 2 or 3 men in England who read my
posting were able not only to identify their family members - fathers or
(in one case) uncle in the photo but to identify all of the other men in
the pix. One of them showed the pix to his "mates"at the Singers Hill shul
in Birmingham, of which my family were long-term members. Another one
contacted a friend of his (who grew up in Birmingham but who had moved
away) who was able to identify *his" father as one of the men in the pix.

Just before the First World War, my father was a member of the B'ham branch
of the Jewish Lads' Brigade (since renamed the Lads and Girls Brigade). The
pix included former members of the Brigade and was (I was told) possibly
taken at the old Jewish community center in Birmingham. Most of the men
(like my father) were in the clothing business.

So - don't discard old pix of "non-relatives" -- someone (searching for
long-lost relatives) may be able to identify all of those (hitherto
unknown) faces for you! Think of it as a possible mitzvah!
