SSA Request for Original Soc. Security Application (SS-5) - need advice #general

Howie Axelrod <highwind1@...>
 

I am planning to request my Grandmother's SS-5. Is it better to get a
scan of the original, or get an extract, or both? Does the original
provide more, less, or different information than the extract?
DOB is 1886 and DOD is 1972.

Perhaps the question is rudimentary, but various reference sites
(including SSA), provide contradictory information.

Also, I am told that it can take up to a year to get the request
processed! I can't wait that long.

As such, is this available (indexed )) at FHL or NARA? I live near
both.

MODERATOR NOTE: There is a Social Security Death Index (SSDI) which
provides *some* but not all information. There are links to online
versions of the SSDI at http://www.jewishgen.org/InfoFiles/faq.html#Vitals .

Michael Bernet, my husband, a usually prolific poster to this

He is currently in Lawrence Hospital, in Bronxville, NY, for a very
painful spinal infection and will be transferred to
Columbia-Presbyterian tomorrow, for more diagnostic tests
Will post more about how to get in touch with him as soon as his
condtioned stabilizes.
I know he would appreciate calls and e-mails.

I should make it clear that this problem occurs when I am using the
newsgroup feature on Outlook Express. My understanding is that most
people don't send their responses in that way, but as ordinary emails
or as I am soing now through Google.

Thank you for those of you who posted me trying to help.

I am glad to report that this has now been resolved by my Internet Provider.
It was a problem that was apparent when I tried subscribing to another
moderated newsgroup and posting there.

I would also like to thank JewishGen Technical Support for their response in
attempting to deal with this seemingly intractable problem.

Austria would probably have been the Austro-Hungarian Empire. If you do a
search on Multimap in Poland you get a number of places which are suggested
by the program as having a similar spelling.

Women's "Hebrew" names #lithuania

Tamar Dothan <dothan-t@...>
 

People sometimes ask on this list about what they think is a female
Hebrew name. I have noticed that most of these names are not in Hebrew.
While there are not very many biblical women's names, it seems East
European Jews used only few of the women's names the bible offers. It
was a lot more important for sons to have Hebrew names than for
daughters.

Soviets - Yiddish schools vs Hebrew schools #poland

taxtroll@...
 

I'm reading in the American Jewish Year Book for the year 5702 (1941-42)
that when the Soviets took control over Eastern Poland in 1939 (and later
Eastern Galicia, the Baltic States, etc) they did not close the Yiddish
schools in the occupied territories but they did require that schools
using Hebrew either close or convert to Yiddish language. Does anyone know
why the Soviets preferred the Jews be taught in Yiddish vs Hebrew?

Thanks

Famous Bialystoker Artist BENN #poland

Bialystoker
 

Dear BialyGenners:

Solomon Rabinowicz was the architect who designed and built the
Bialystok Great Synagogue. See
http://www.zabludow.com/bialystokgreatsynagogue.html for more
information.

Solomon's son, Ben-Zion, was a great artist who lived in Paris and used
the name BENN (1905-1989). BENN is being honored in Paris on the
occasion of the 100th anniversary of his birth. The website for this
honor is http://www.bibleaneuilly.org/expobenn.html.

As are many Americans, I am language challenged and do not read French.
Anyone who does read French, please help us out and provide a brief
summary of this website honoring our landsman BENN.

If anyone knows of a website where we can find out more about BENN's
works, please let us know.
