I join the others in thanking Logan Kleinwachs >from the depths of my

As some have mentioned doing comparisions of 1926/7 and 1929 - don't forget
one row below is the 1923 directory.
We now have in our genealogical addressbook a collection of addresses
running >from 1910 through 1940 based on the varous directories. As stated
before in the NY library there are telephone directories for Warsaw >from
various years in the 1930's.
I believe the Jewish Institute(?) in Warsaw has the 1910 directory for
Warsaw.
If so is it possible to scan it into PDF and have Logan build a OCR index?
It would be a great help for filling in the blanks.

Carol W. Skydell <cskydell@...>
 

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 credit card until you approve, so don't
be timid about using the 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 the JewishGen Mall at www.jewishgenmall.org The quickest way
to find the complete description is to click on the moving banner
and it will take you directly to a full explanation of what is on
the disks.

The sooner you order, the sooner you can enjoy listening to the conference
lectures at your leisure.

ROSNER Family From Dabrowa Tarnowska #galicia

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Genners and Siggers,
Following my reunion with my 2 first cousins Rudy
Rosner(b.1920 Berlin) and Reuven Orschutzer(b. 1925
Krakow) I continued my research and found out that our
grandfather Jacob Chiel Rosner(1866-1942) was born in
Dabrowa Tarnowska(pronounced Dombrowa).His parents
were Rubin and Malka. Rubin was apparently a Chasidic
Rabbi.
I found in EIDB that a certain Judah Rosner(b.1880 in
Tarnow) came to the USA in 1920. He was accompanied by
his wife Gele and 4 children. The 2 youngest were
Malka(b.1911) and Rubin(b.1913). He declared that he
will stay with his father H.Rosner in NY who also paid
for the tickets.
There is indeed a Hirsch Rosner (b.1857 or 1862 in
Tarnow) who came to the USA in 1905 accompanied by his
daughter Esther who was 18 in 1905.
I suspect that Judah named his younger kids Malka and
Rubin after his grandparents who may be my
greatgrandparents.
Does it ring a bell????
Thanks
Jacob Rosen

I've been avoiding joining this conversation with this point
for fear of being laughed off the list, but ...... I
happened to switch on the UK TV channel ITV2 last weekend
and caught a repeat of the 80's show Robin Of Sherwood. This
particular episode which I don't recall seeing before was
about a pogrom in the Jewish population of nottingham
(presumably as this is where robin hood is set) according to
the internet movie database it is: "The Children of Israel"
Episode: #2.2 - 16 March 1985.
The main Jewish family it centers around were called De
Talmont, and when threatened by the Sherrif of Nottingham
(although Sherwood forest does extend to south yorkshire)
the father of the family Joshua de Talmont says that they
are protected as they are poperty of the king.
See these background notes for the show giving a timeline.

I am not clear how historical this is.

Researchers have been advertising in Avotaynu for many years. I know
Avotaynu doesn't promote them but I feel that if they've been advertising
for so long they must be doing business and getting good results.

If I were to hire one I'd ask for recommendations >from clients.
