David Harris <dorsharris@...>
 

Dear 'Genners..

We are delighted to tell you about a wonderful opportunity to own a set of
3 CDs containing 31 recorded presentations at the just concluded IAJGS
conference in Las Vegas. All this is thanks to Ron Arons and his small
army of volunteers. Ron stepped up to the plate when it was announced that
the customary practice of recording the sessions could not be
followed. Conference attendees as well as those who were not able to join
us in Las Vegas now have an opportunity to listen to 31 of the sessions.

We are making the complete set available at a very affordable $35 plus
modest shipping and handling costs. Shipping cost will vary depending on
the country to which the set is being delivered and will show up when you
go through the ordering system in the Mall. Nothing is charged to your

system. Ron will start burning CDs and shipping as soon as he begins to
get the orders. Hopefully you will keep him busy for the next few weeks!
<g>

To see a complete listing of which of the sessions were recorded visit

Are you sure the Heh isn't really a Het? Then it would be

Lost Canadian LIBERMAN's #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Cousins,

I have found most of my LIBERMAN family, Cohanim, who immigrated >from the
area around Pinsk to Montreal (some stayed in London for a while.) But
there are two branches I can't find. 1) Laizer, who might have been born in
the 1870s, and his wife Sore-Itka. A cousin now deceased gave me the names
of their children, each of them Hebrew or Yiddish, which makes me think
they never immigrated: Hodia, Beila, Pesel, Meyer and Merel. 2) Reuvin,
also born maybe in the 1870s, and his wife Liby, both of whom immigrated to
Montreal. Their children: Esther, Max, Gertie, Lily and Sydney.

Do any of you Montrealers out there know anything of these people?

Best, Steve Orlen

Bloodied Postcard from Ukraine, 1919, ViewMate 6549 #general

Barryzwick@...
 

I would much appreciate if someone who reads Yiddish would translate this
postcard posted to View Mate:
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6549

The postcard, with an address in Russian to my great-grandfather, Boruch
Gherman (German), was written to him by, I believe, his son Noach Gherman.

My great-uncle Rafael Gherman was holding the postcard during a pogrom by
Ukrainian Nationalist forces in the village of Kunev, Ukraine, in 1919.

Please send all replies to me personally at barryzwick@aol.com.

Thanks so much.

MACHLIN and GOROBNIK from Pinsk #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Cousins,

I found two of my MACHLIN relatives, Dov & Malka, on the Pinsk Ghetto
Database. They were the children of Alzer M and Chaika nee LIBERMAN.On Yad
Vashem, I found a number of MACHLINs, but the informant sometimes gave
minimal information (registered in 1957), so I don't know if the names
represent my family. The informant's name was Ita GOROBNIK. I can't read
the records, but I think she was living in Israel.

Does anyone know the GOROBNIK family in Israel?

Re: Tel-Aviv - Tagore Street #general

Rony <golanron@...>
 

Israel,

If you inquire with Bezeq 144 service (Information) about a specific
name/address, they will tell you if the number is "unlisted" ("Chasuy").
They will not tell you what the number *is*, but they will confirm that
there is a phone there.

Ramat Hasharon, Israel

(This is a correction to my previous post which mistakenly referred to
Brodetzki Street. Sorry about that.)

Is there someone in north Tel-Aviv who can pass by a building on
Tagore Street and check the names on the mailbox for me please. I
have a name and address, but there is no listing in the phone book.
Before I assume it's simply an unlisted number, I'd like to see if there
is actually someone by that name at that address.
