the (East-West) longitudes seem to be off by about 17 degrees, 45
minutes. That is, the longitudes shown at the top of the map are
consistently 17 degrees, 45 minutes too high.

That would make sense if they started with the zero longitude running
(North-South) through the western end of cornwall, or something. Has
anyone noticed theis problem with the map?
Quite correct and that is basically the case. Prior to the early 20th
century international agreement that settled on the Greenwich Meridian as
the Prime Meridian for everyone, each country selected its own Prime
Meridian. The British Empire and the US used the Greenwich Meridian. The
French Empire used the Paris Meridian, of course. The Austrian Empire used
the Ferro Meridian, which passes through Hierro (or Ferro) Island, the
western-most of the Canary Islands. This makes sense for a European land
power, as everything in Europe would have an East Longitude. Very little
opportunity for that messy math connected with comparing points on both
sides of the Prime Meridian.

The Ferro Meridian is 17 degrees 40 minutes East of the Greenwich Meridian.
Hence the difference you noted.

Feliks BEJMAN #general

Marko <marko@...>
 

Dear Cousins,

When reviewing some papers of my ancestors, I've found a
very small piece of paper which was somehow between these
documents. On this very small paper, a Polish stamp and a
name is shown only:

"Wytwornia Galanterii Pamjatkarskiel
Feliks Bejman
Sczecin, ul. Mieszko I-go 102/5"

Does anyone know what that means? And does anyone have
this name (Feliks BEJMAN) on the list?? It's strange, I
never heard this name before, and haven't any connection
to Sczecin as yet..

Thanks a lot in advance, all the best!

Dr. Nathan Adler Lodge #general

Shari Kantrow
 

Hello Genners,
Does the name Dr. Nathan Adler Lodge (associated
with Mt. Carmel cemetery in Queens, NY) sound familiar
to any of you? I wonder if, like the landsmanschaftn,
there is an ancestral town associated with it. The
lodge was disbanded in the late 1950s. My
g-grandparents Max SCHNEIDER b. abt. 1870 and Dora
MEYER SCHNEIDER b. abt. 1874 are associated with this
lodge, and I have been unable to find which town from
Austria they are from. I thought perhaps, this may
provide a lead.
Thanks in advance.

Putting Yiskor book into Word format #general

Joyce Oshrin <joshrin@...>
 

Putting Yiskor book into WORD format

I wrote the Yiskor book ( Koden,a Shtetl No More) for Koden, Lublin,
Poland/Russia . It is 294 pages long. I have it in hard copy, on a
microfiche and the 294 pages in individual tif. pages. Most of the text
portion which I did in Word form is online in the Yiskor book section.
However, many of the pages are my notes indexing the entire 3 films ( >from
FHC) of Koden. And pictures. They are not accepted by the Yiskor book
unless they are in Word format. Is there anyone who knows how to do this
and will do it for me so I can have the entire Yiskor book online? There are
about 120 pages of the indexes which include names, parents', occupations,
ages,spouses names and ages, causes of deaths on some, etc. and some
pictures of the town and holocaust victims.

The same story often repeated here by others has finally come to pass
with my family, thanks to Yad Vashem. A whole branch of our family
assumed lost in the Shoah survived and flourished in the Soviet Union,
then in Israel. I found them because they filled out Yad Vashem pages
of testimony for their relatives killed.

The POTs were over 10 years old and none of the addresses were
current, so the key to success was using the Israeli telephone
directory at www.144.bezek.com. In fact, the surname I was searching
is so unusual that if I had thought of it, I could have found them
before I located the POTs just by searching each of the six area codes
in Israel. You need to be able to enter Hebrew to use the site.
Congratulations on your success!

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.

They all chose the name "EISENBERG" upon arrival in America in the
