Request for translation of 1926 letter #romania

Martin Fischer
 

Hi everyone,

Many thanks for previous translations and other help that members of this
mailing list have very generously provided.

I have posted another letter in Romanian, written in 1926 by a member of the
LANDMANN family, that I would like to have translated into English. It is
probably >from Sylvia Landmann in Bucharest, Romania, to her uncle Herman
Landman in Kansas City, Missouri.

It is on three pages at:

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6659

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6661

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6660

(I apologize for any error in the order of the pages. It is a little
confusing because I don't understand Romanian, but I can see that two pages
have the same date while two pages have the signature of the same letter
writer.)

Thanks again for your help.

Re: 1910 Census puzzle #germany

I did some quick Googling on the term and came up with a couple of
interesting links discussing this exact issue:

http://mailman.acomp.usf.edu/pipermail/genealib/2001-December/003288.html


The end result, as researched by a Librarian/Researcher for the Great Falls
Genealogical Society, is that it most likely "has no valuable meaning
for genealogists". Regards,

<<Has anyone had any luck chasing down records >from Memel (Klaipeda)?

Professor Ruth Leizerowitz in Berlin, Germany has done a large amount of
research pertaining to the Memel records.

Her website at http://www.leiserowitz.de/Juden/index.html contains a lot of
information and data about the Memel records for the city of Memel as well
as for the Memel District. All of it is in German but much of it is also in
English.

Seeking RABINOWITZ, Chicago #general

sbloom@...
 

Hi,

I am looking for Melvin, Joe and Evelyn RABINOWITZ, children of Hyman and
Rose.
They would be 80 years old now, +/- some years. I am hoping they are
living and well.

Though I don't believe they are direct relatives, my great great
grandmother, Rebeccas SCHULTZ was a lodger in their house (according to the 1930
census). Though she may have only lived their briefly, I am guessing this is
not the case, as she was already elderly, and being illiterate, could not have
functioned well if she had to move a lot.
I am hoping the (then) children could share some memories of her, if
possible. There is a chance we could be cousins, though I am unaware of
what the relationship would be. More likely there is a professional
connection of sorts. I know her (Rebeccas) oldest son was a butcher, and
apparently Hyman is also a butcher. So, perhaps the son, Max SCHULTZ, knew
of this other butcher who had room in his house for the elderly mother.

I found out last week, with the help of kind genners, that Rebecca SCHULTZ
was burried at Waldheim, in the Anshe Chodokov section (spelled as
"Chordokover"). As this was a congregation, there might be a connection
along those lines.

Rebecca was living on Trumbull St. in Chicago when she died in 1949, if
that rings a bell.

Re: Universal backup #general

Sally Bruckheimer
 

When I switched >from DOS to Windows and Word Perfect
to Word, I 'lost' the e-version of the index I made to
a Jewish cemetery. This is much different than
backing up files, it is a matter of converting from
one progam in one operating system and new both.
Unless the programmers give you a 'conversion', you
may end up having to make paper copies and scanning
them in to OCR... with today's technology anyway. Who
knows what tomorrow will bring.

I think the point of the 'Universal Program' is that
they intend to make it compatible with whatever comes
up.

Looking for GORILITZ or GRAULITZ from Plotsk #general

Todd Brody
 

I just came back >from the NYC records (on Chambers
St.) and got a copy of my ggrandparents wedding
certificate (1918). If you haven't done this already
you should go. Getting the death and marriage
certificates for my family members has provided a
wealth of information -- that people who are alive
today have simply forgotten.

Anyway, I never knew the maiden name of my
gggrandmother, and it is on this document. Her name
was Fannie GORILITZ or GRAULITZ (there are two
different certificates and the name is spelled
differently on both). I doubt that she was actually
from Plotsk, but more likely >from another town in the
Plock Gubernia, potentially Biezun or Zuromin.

Anyway, I have sent emails to people listed on family
finder who are looking for Gerlitz. But maybe there
is somone who reads these bulletin boards who can
provide some additional information.

Thanks for all of the help.

These apparently were nicknames or kinuim. Does anyone have any idea their

One supposes that "Isha" is Yesha'ayahu (Isaiah), but, depending upon
where the family lived, could also be (Ishak) Yitzh.ak, like my
Romanian dentist.

"Izha" is no more unambiguous. The point is that questions like this
ought not to be put by titration, a drop at a time, because European
Jewry was never all of a piece.
