Re: Translation of Romanian on back of picture postcard #general

First, I would like to thank all of this Group with their offer to
translate for me in the last 24 hours.

I have the translation and won't need any more help with this.

You are the greatest!!

I have already thanked all of those who have done the translation for
me.

I received 4 translations (four four different countries, by the way).

What appears to be just a simple message, has given me some remarkable
information, not the least of which is the name of one of the siblings
that I have been searching for. A real find!!
I will be posting the information on the Rom-Sig soon.

Rabbi Dr. Simon FRIEDMAN (Lubliniec) #rabbinic

Orit Lavi <orit@...>
 

Dear friends,

I would greatly appreciate any info regarding Rabbi Dr. Simon
FRIEDMAN >from Lubliniec (born about 1849), and his grandfather Rabbi
Simon LEVI >from Fordon. Is any of you familiar with their family
tree?

In addition I have got info saying that Rabbi Simon FRIEDMAN was
related to Akiwa EGER (perhaps second cousins). I would also like to
know the exact relation between them.

Lastly, is there any connection between Zippora LEVI, Mother of
Akiwa EGER born ca. 1711 (1720 according to another version), and
Rabbi Simon LEVI?

Many thanks

Leipzig, Germany Research - for GOLDSTEIN #germany

Scott L. <eurotrash123@...>
 

After having great luck using LDS records to find
Jewish records >from a very small community in
northeastern Germany, I decided recently to try and
obtain Jewish (or census) records >from mid 19th
century Leipzig. The LDS website
(www.familysearch.org), however, lists only a 1939
census for Leipzig. Can this be the only available
documentation for such a main city? Has anyone else
done research on Jews in Leipzig? The family I would
be searching is GOLDSTEIN. Thanks!

Preservation of electronic records #germany

Doug Mason
 

We use computers to store the stories and images of our family's
histories. We hope our records will be available to our future
generations, so they may be appreciated by them.

Most of the Word Processing programs I have used over the past 25 years
are now obsolete, often making it impossible to retrieve documents. This
trend will continue, probably more quickly than in the past.

The same is true of the changes in hardware over that period.

The National Archives of Australia is addressing these issues, and is
promoting software named Xena that "converts electronic records into a
standardised format that can be read by future technology". Xena is based
on "a standard computer language that does not depend on proprietry
software or hardware to be read".

Xena is available at no cost from: xena.sourceforge.net

***I have not used the program so I have not assessed it,*** but thought I
should advise others who may be interested in assessing whether it is
relevant to ensuring the long-term preservation of their documents.

Doug Mason Melbourne Australia

MODERATOR NOTES: We usually discourage citations of resources *** that have not
yet been tried by the member who cites them. This message raises an interesting
issue, though, so I have allowed it.

Those interested in this issue should investigate the ongoing efforts of the LDS
(Mormon) Family History Library to create durable data storage technologies for
massive amounts of data.
