from early on, Jews have not been strangers to U.S military service. It
would be interesting for one to research (both militarily and
genealogically) just why a Jewish women by the name of Rachel Levy is buried
in the front yard of Jefferson's Monticello. One may also discover how
flogging in the U.S. Navy was ended.

Amended surname SHERIL in Viewmate 5905 #general

Yehudh bn Shlmo
 

Dear Jewishgen,

Thank you very much for your translations. I was told
by several people that on Viewmate 5905 for the birth
of Hirsch BLOSHTEYN in Keidan Lithuania, there is a
box which shows a name amendment of SHERIL in the
father's name. The name of the father was Dovid ben
Girsh Bloshteyn. I am assuming this is for the Surname
and not his first name since SHERIL would be a
feminine name (at least in Hebrew).

If the surname was SHERIL and at sometime changed to
BLOSHTEYN/BLUESTEIN, it seems like a very odd last
name. Is anyone familiar with the name SHERIL from
Lithuania?

Sincerely,
Yehudah BenShlomo
Texas, U.S.A.

Dear Group,

Whilst skimming through a book on kashrut which was written in about 1991 or
earlier,
I came upon a reference to Rabbi Aharon Pfeuffer. Johannesburg, also Bnei
Brak.
An authority on kashrut and author of Kitzur Halachot Basar B'Chalav.

If anyone has any additional information about Rabbi Pfeuffer which could
usefully be added to our page of rabbis and cantors at
http://www.jewishgen.org/safrica/rabbis&cantors/names-a2z.htm
then please contact me. Thanks.

Withing you all a Happy and Kosher Pesach,

tour reservations, I hope you can help me with the
following:

1. At what time will the conference officially end on
July 15?

2. Are the tours running AFTER the conference or
during it? If the latter, does that mean that taking
a tour will result in missing sessions?

Many thanks,

Jeff,

The project you heard about on CNN is sponsored by the National
Geographic Society. As I understand it, it is basic research to
uncover new information on prehistoric immigration patterns. Whether
it will contribute to our personal genealogical knowledge is unclear
to me.

Announcing the Kurow (Lublin) Polish State Archives Project! #general

RobinnM@...
 

The Jewish Records Indexing - Poland Project is proud to announce that all
19th century Jewish records for the town of Kurow have been indexed! Kurow is
a town in the Lublin District.

The Kurow Jewish births, marriages and deaths between 1810-1847 were filmed
by the Mormons, typed by volunteers, and now appear in the JRI-Poland
database... And the subsequent years, 1862-1902 (some registers appear to be
missing) were recently indexed by the JRI-Poland team!

The most commonly found surnames in those more recent records include the
following names:

BRENER, BRUTMAN, CHANDELSMAN, CHANESMAN, CUKERMAN, CYMERMAN, ELENBOGEN,
ETYNGER, FLAKSER, FLISFEDER, FROST, GOLDGRAN, GOLDSZLAGER, GONIKSMAN, GOPENCHAIM,

Re: Question about the 1904 Poland Industrial Directory #general

"Jean-Pierre Stroweis" wrote

Some times ago, Logan Kleinwaks and others informed on this forum about a
very valuable web resource, the 1904 Poland Industrial Directory, which can
be found on the Digital Library of Wielkopolska website at
http://www.wbc.poznan.pl/dlibra/doccontent2?id=2018&dirids=1
(including a surname index on pages 16-54).

The document is written in Polish.

Today, it came to my mind that, in 1904, Poland was actually the
Kingdom of Poland, ruled by Russia, and the official language was
cyrillic Russian.

For example, Alexander Beider's "Dictionary on Jewish Surnames >from the
Kingdom of Poland" used intensively the electoral lists that were published
in Russian. Similarly, the Polish civil records are written in cyrillic from
1868 to 1918. And the 1901 Vsya Rossiya Russian Business
Directory (which also covered Poland) was written in cyrillic.

So, how comes that the 1904 industrial directory was written in Polish?
More generally, does someone know whether there is a general criteria that
indicates in which langage the documents/publications of/about Poland
were written between 1868 and 1918.
Logan informed about 1901 Galicia Business Directory.
Alongside the German, Polish and Hungarian were two othere official
administration languages of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

Other directories (also in Polish), located on the Wielkopolska Digital
Library site are:
1902 Lwow Address Directory and
1912 Galicia Phone directory.
