Re: NYC Accommodation Advise Needed for 2006 IAJGS conference #general

You can try locations in Yonkers, White Plains, Elmsford and as far north as
Brewster (although Brewster is at least an hour by train to NYC providing
there are no delays). I would recommend that you try anywhere in lower
Westchester County. There are plenty of hotels in White Plains, Tarrytown
and Elmsford which are going to be less expensive than those in NYC. Once in
NYC the fastest way to travel is either on foot or by subway.

Subject: NYC Accommodation Advise Needed for 2006 IAJGS conference

I was wondering if any New Yorkers could give some advise on accommodations
for next years IAJGS conference. Although the conference hotel rate is
terrific compared to rack rates and every discount Website I have checked,
it is still quite pricey [http://www.jgsny2006.org/hotel.cfm] and I have a
feeling that taxes, parking, and food will bring conference costs to very
high levels for many non-commuting attendees. Are there any other areas in
the NYC area with clean, safe, more reasonably priced accomodations with
parking that could be reached by convenient public transportation. I guess
this might be a pretty tough question to answer in a positive manner but I
thought I would at least ask the question now since registration opens next
month. I suspect even these hotels rates may not be available very long and
we will be back well over $300/day quite easily. Any specific names and
places would be especially welcome.

list to be created later on.

Kiev Look-up Needed #general

Dear Group,

I have found a possible link to the missing wing of my grandmother's family
on a Yad Vashem testimony posted >from 1997. I have the submitter's name and
address and was wondering if someone in Kiev (or someone able to read any
online directories in Russian for the Kiev area) could check a directory to see
if the address was still the same.

Many thanks,

Re: NYC accomodations #general

Sally Bruckheimer <sallybru@...>
 

The best deal by far in NYC accomodations, aside >from finding a Manhattan
relative or genner willing to put you up for free, might be a hostel run by
nuns, originally for German immigrants. I stayed there a
couple times, many years ago, for $45 a night - instead of $200 or so
elsewhere. It has no decor, unless you count the crucifix over the bed
(which you can ignore, in my opinion); it is clean as a whistle; it is at
on 23rd St near 8th Ave..

If you bring your spouse and don't use the same surname, bring your marriage
license.

If you want the name, write me as I cannot mention it in public.

Galicia researchers on the Gulf Coast #galicia

Shelley K. Pollero
 

Dear All,

It is now two weeks since Hurricane Katrina devastated a wide area of the
Gulf Coast of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. Several of our members
and subscribers and/or their families live in New Orleans and other towns
affected by the hurricane and/or the flooding that followed. We hope that
they were able to evacuate safely and relocate in other areas until they can
return home.

Eileen Polakoff reported the following on September 3 and has given me
permission to post information about Gesher Galicia members Vicki and Jacob
Karno and about Susan King.

"I've just heard >from Vicki [and Jacob Karno] and they are fine. They had a
front row seat to Hurricane Katrina but managed to get out of New Orleans to
avoid the devastation that followed. They have relocated to Destin,
[Florida] for at least 2 or 3 months where they are renting an apartment.
Their friends are pleased to hear they are fine and as Vicki says "we'll
survive" as we all know is the hope for everyone on the Gulf Coast.

Some of you may not know that JewishGen's president and founder Susan King
called New Orleans home for a very long time. I don't know if any family are
still living there but they certainly must be. I do know that her heart is
hurting as she sees the devastation everywhere in her hometown."

If any Gesher Galicia members suffered losses of their issues of The
Galitzianer and GG Family Finder during Hurricane Katrina (or other
disaster), let me know -- whenever you are ready to dig in again to your
research.

If you have been affected by the events, let me know privately. I hope that
all are safe, healthy, and in good spirits.

Warm regards,

Shelley

Brno Archives #austria-czech

Rudy Matzner <matznerr@...>
 

Has anyone had experience communicating with the Brno Archives? I am
interested in finding what records they may have on the Jewish community
in Damborice, the birthplace of my grandfather, Leopold MATZNER.
Damborice is located about 20 miles southeast of Brno.

Their archive website is all in Czech, a language that I do not know. I
could stumble along in German, or use English. I'm wondering what
success others have had in communicating with Czech regional archives?

APPELBAUM - SOLOVEITCHIK of Brisk & Bialystok #rabbinic

Sara Joskelman <sarajoskelman@...>
 

I am looking for information on Rabbi Moshe APPELBAUM, who lived
in Brisk and Bialystok and was a cousin of the MANDELBAUMs of
"Mandelbaum Gate" fame and related to the SOLOVEITCHIK family of
Brisk. He was also cousin of Reb Nochumke's, the Bialystoker Rebbe.

Family APPELBAUM members Abraham and Henya lived in Drohiczyn near
Pinsk and Bialystok in the Grodno Governament of Belarus.

Reason for this Research:

The family of my cousin, Rabbi Yechiel PERR, Rosh Yeshiva Far
Rockaway, does not have Internet. He asked for my help. His lost
family name was APPELBAUM. The ancestor named Rabbi Moshe
APPELBAUM, or his son was given to family PERKOVITSKY ( family
changed to PERR). The APPELBAUMs had no sons and they raised Rabbi
PERR's ancestor APPELBAUM, giving him their name to save him from
the Russian army.

I will be grateful for any guidance in research or information on
the rabbinic background etc.

Hi all,

I am looking for descendants, or relatives of the KARP family of New Paltz,

Samuel KARP (born in the mid 1800s in Lithuania) was supposedly a judge in
New Paltz. I believe his children's names were Ben, Joe and Lilian.

If anyone knows anything about this family I would really appreciate
hearing back >from you.
