I should add to what Dick wrote, that Dr. Steve Morse provides a guide,
entitled:

Using the Hebrew Version of the Bezeq Israeli Telephone Directory , at:
http://www.stevemorse.org/hebrew/bezeqhebrew.html

Steve Morse provides tools for the conversion of names and locations into
Hebrew characters, and the search in Bezeq's database with the
transliterated words.

in Israel. You need to be able to enter Hebrew to use the site."

Stan Goodman added:

"For what it's worth, you would not have had to search separately in
each of the area codes. The selection list of area codes includes also
"00", which represents the entire country -- *all* the areas in one fell
swoop."

It's also not necessary to have a Hebrew keyboard. You do need to
have Hebrew enabled on your computer, but Bezeq provides a virtual
Hebrew keyboard for entering the name, etc., to search. You click on
the area corresponding to the letter you want, and that letter is
entered in the selected field. A little clunky, but it works.

Re: 1925 New York State Census #general

phylliskramer1@...
 

I'd like to add to Joy Rich's posting regarding the wonderful new index
that Steven Morse has on his website for the NY State census.

First, the marvel of the 1925 census is that it contains the year and court
of Naturalization!! What a find!

The index is relatively easy to use...but some preparation is required. You
must know the exact address and then go to mapquest to find the cross streets,
otherwise you will have to search muliple microfilms.

Yesterday I tried the microfilms at the New York Public Library and found
information i've been seeking for years. --

Henry - My aunt's Yiddish name was Chaia but her English name was Anna. =

in Hungarian is also Nina and Netty (diminuitives). You might try those

Recommended Photo Website #ukraine

Michelle Frager <lulu_brooks@...>
 

Dear Group:

I hope this recommendation will be accepted by the moderators, as it offers a
rare (in my experience) opportunity to see photos of Ukrainian shtetls in their
current state. Not a formal all-inclusive survey, what's amazing and depressing
is that one might think the photos date >from the Thirties, not 1989+.

The photographer is a Ukrainian Jew who emigrated in 2001. Her name is Rita
Ostrovskaya, at http://www.rita-art.org/start-e.html .

Based on the map of the St. Laurent District, it appears that the

Census Puzzle #general

Stein Lewis
 

An error by an enumerator on the 1910 census gave me a clue to my
maternal gf's place of birth. In checking his nephew who lived in
Strawberry Mansion (a section of Philadelphia), the country of origin
on the page was consistently "Russia" until I reached David
Silverberg. There it was "Kiev" which was then crossed out and
replaced by Russia. Interestingly, David's wife and his sister-in-
law were both shown as being >from "Galicia." I still don't know
where they were >from in Kiev, but it narrows down the search.

Dr. Nathan Adler Lodge #general

Shari Kantrow
 

Hello all:
In trying to locate this lodge, here is some info I
have found. The confusion is...are these two separate
and distinct lodges, or are they one and the same?:

1. Dr. Nathan Adler Lodge No. 137 IOSB Independent
Order Sons of Benjamin p. 54
and
2. Dr. Nathan Adler Lodge No. 132 IOBA Independent
Order Brith Abraham p. 57
My SCHNEIDER family is buried with this lodge at Mt.
Carmel, Queens
Also, is there anyone who will be going to the NY
Public Library Jewish Division sometime who will be
able to do a lookup for me?
Thanks...it seems like one mystery always
leads to another. : )

The topic of the notation PRWR in the census has been debated for
about a week. So today I sent most of the discussion to an
acquaintance who works for the Census Bureau in Washington D.C. Let's
hope that he can find out a definitive answer for all of us.
