Dear Genners,Galicianers and Krakowiaks,
Rabbi Abraham Flaks took over as the first Rabbi in

Dear Genners, I will paraphrase the letter I wrote to the Jerusalem
Post just 3 days ago when they published this story about the "first Rabbi
in Krakow since the Holocaust.":
...So how come when my wife and I spent several days in Krakow in
2001, including Yom Kippur, worshiping at the Rema synagogue (named after my
wife's ancestor), there was a Rabbi, young, with a wife and children, living in
Krakow--we enjoyed shabbes hospitality at his apartment near the shul.
He was of Italian/Croatian (Jewish of course) background, and he had
just completed a new translation of the Chumash into Polish, consulting with
Czeslaw Milosz, who was then living in Krakow, on the Polish stylistics.
My guess is that Rabbi Flaks is the first rabbi in Krakow funded by
the orthodox group in Jerusalem that released this story. I believe that the
rabbi we met (definitely orthodox) was being funded at least in part by the
Lauder foundation, which is active in Krakow.

Requests sent to the Romanian archives.... #romania

Rosanne Leeson <rdleeson@...>
 

Dear All,

Shortly after the July Conference I posted to this list a message for
those who wish to try to obtain family vital records >from Romanian
Archives. It was the precise response that I had received >from the
Director-General of the National Archives in Bucharest, with ther
instructions for this procedure, directly >from him.

Have any of you tried this route? If so, I very much need to hear back
from you as whether you had any success at all, or any response that you
have received. It is important for us to know whether the method
suggested by Lungu has actually produced any results!

I look forward to hearing >from you,

Romanian researchers! #romania

Rosanne Leeson <rdleeson@...>
 

Dear fellow ROM-SIGgers,

It has come to our attention that a recent series of e-mails went to
people researching in Iasi and recommending a specific researcher.
Please be aware that before hiring any researcher it is wise to perform
due diligence and request performance evaluations >from people who
worked with a particular researcher. Despite indications to the
contrary, Rom SIG does **not** recommend any researchers. Caveat emptor.

If you have any questions about any researchers you should always
contact the Co-Coordinators of this SIG first!

Reminder of rules for posting to the ROM-SIG! #romania

Rosanne Leeson <rdleeson@...>
 

Dear Rom-Sig Discussion Group Members:

It is time for a reminder of the rules for posting to this SIG!
The rules that apply to the JewishGen Discussion Group also apply to all
the SIG Discussion Groups as well. Here is a brief refresher.

For complete rules go to:

< www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen/DiscussionGroup.htm>
----------------------------------------------------------
1) All surnames should always be capitalized, and surnames *only*!

2) Subject lines should be explicit (e.g. Romanian patronymics
explained) and not general (e.g. need help or digest 3/6),
or worse (No subject)!

3) Signatures should be complete. By this we mean that you must sign
your full name and location (e.g. Jane Doe, Iasi, Romania or Joe Blow,
Podunk,IA).

A responder to an unsigned message can tell you to go to National
Archives, but if you live in France that is of no help to you.

4) Please do not send messages in MIME or HTML format! The Jewishgen
server can only accept Plain Text messages. Please contact your provider
if you do not know how to set your email program.

5) Messages cannot be copied >from one list to another without the
express permission of the owner of the original list. If you wish, you
may abstract the information, or say it in your own words.

6) Please do not hit the Reply button to answer a message sent to the
List. This causes needlessly long messages for the Moderators to Edit.
Simply indicate the name of the person to whom you are answering, and give
the subject of that message.

7) If you use an "Out of office" responder you must set your email to
NOMAIL * before* turning on your automatic responder. Otherwise every
message sent to the list will be bounced back to the sender. You can do
this by going to: < http://lyris.jewishgen.org/ListManager > Be
considerate of your fellow subscribers!

8) And finally, all messages sent to this list must have to do with the
areas covered by this list, i.e. Romania, Transylvania, Moldova as well
as those areas formerly known as Bukovina, Bessarabia, Banat, etc.
Postings that do not clearly relate to our areas will be rejected.

Thank you for your cooperation.
Your Co-Coordinators,
Rosanne Leeson
