A Mystery Found in London Synagogue Marriage Registers #general

Harold Lewin <harmir@...>
 

Can anyone suggest a solution to the following mysterious entries discovered
during computerization of the marriage registers of the Great Synagogue,
London?

The two sources were the photocopy of the marriage certificate found in
another microfilm and the synagogue register.

1. >from the certificate: On 4th February 1863, Simon Henry 21, son of Henry
Henry, was married to Harriet Saunders 19, daughter of David Saunders.

2. >from the register: On 4th February 1863, Simon Henry (patronymic in
Hebrew script: Shimon ben Zvi Hirsch) was married to Hannah Saunders
(patronymic in Hebrew script: Yetta bat Dovid).

3. >from a later entry in the register: On 7th May 1863, Simon Henry
(patronymic in Hebrew script: Shimon ben Zvi Hirsch) was married to Harriet
Saunders (patronymic in Hebrew script: Sarah bat Avraham Avinu).

Can anyone solve the mystery? Harold Lewin - Jerusalem


Old age home & hospital, Vilkiviskis, Lithuania #general

RM Hoffman <rmhoffman@...>
 

My g-grandfather, Velvel SHEDLOVSKY, died at age 104 in an old age home in
Vilkiviskis, Lithuania. I believe a photograph of this building appears on
page 1397 of the new "Encyclopedia of Jewish Life Before and During the
Holocaust." Is the hospital still in existence and are there patient records
available?

Velvel's wife's name was Haude Baile. My grandfather, Jacob J. Shedlovsky, was
born Mar. 14. 1873 in Vilkiviskis, and emigrated to the U.S. in1892.

I understand that most records >from this town have been lost. Where can I look
for more information about the Shedlovsky family?

More gefilte fish tales #galicia

Dear All,

I have heard >from a few others, who share their stories:

Shirley Pencer wrote:

The Shtetl Book by D.K. and David G. Roskies , Ktav Publishing co., ISBN
0-87068-455-8, pp36-37 describes the "Gefilte Fish Line" which demarcates
places to the east as cooking the fish without sugar.

Francine Shapiro wrote in two messages:

1. My uncle said that my grandmother brought home live carp and kept them in
the bathtub. They all had to bathe before the carp arrived, and had to wait
afterwards to eat the gefilte fish. He doesn't remember if it was sweet or
not, but it was always very good.

2. Here is a recipe for Potato Ahnbren - i.e. pareve potato soup.
My mother talked of it, but it was years before I came upon the recipe.
Tip: make the roux in a teflon-coated pot or pan. It stops
being a sticky mess, and slides easily into the soup.
4 potatoes, diced
2 carrots, sliced
1 stalk of celery, medium slices
1 chopped onion
2Tflour
2T margarine or butter
salt and pepper to taste
6 cups water

Cook the potatoes in boiling, salted water 5 mins. Add
carrots, celery, and onion and simmer.
In a frying pan, blend equal amounts of margarine or flour until the
mixture turns brown. Add small amounts of the liquid >from the soup
to the frying pan until the mixture becomes smooth, then pour and stir
the brown mixture slowly into the soup pot. Add salt and pepper to taste
and simmer until the vegetables are soft.

Thanks to Shirley and Francine!

Re: Research guidance needed #galicia

Mark Halpern <willie46@...>
 

When Galitzianers are starting their "Old Country" research, they
should consult two websites.

1. Consult Miriam Weiner's Routes to Roots Foundation website at
www.rtrfoundation.org to look up your town(s) in the Archival
Database. This will tell you the records available and the
Archives where those records can be found.

2. Many towns within the current and former territories of Poland
(including all of Galicia) have had or will have Jewish vital
records indexed through Jewish Records Indexing - Poland. Go the
JRI-Poland website at www.jri-poland.org and search the Town
Index to see if a project is active. If so, search the database
at http://www.jri-poland.org/jriplweb.htm.

JRI-Poland will be indexing records for Rawa Ruska that are
housed at the AGAD Archives in Warsaw. This includes 1816-70,
1877-1901 births, 1844-70, 1877-1900 deaths.

Like all JRI-Poland projects, the Rawa Ruska project can only be
accomplished with the help of interested researchers. You can
check the status of the Rawa Ruska project online at
http://www.jri-poland.org/agad/agadtowns.html.

You can help ensure the indexing of Rawa Ruska records. Please
consider a contribution to the AGAD project. Information on
contributing is available at
<http://www.jri-poland.org/agad/agadcontrib.htm>;.

The AGAD record indices contained in the JRI-Poland database
would not be accessible to researchers without our host,
JewishGen. In addition to your contribution to the JRI-Poland
AGAD Project that supports indexing of the records, we hope you
will also give to JewishGen to help defray the cost of
maintaining these records. An easily accessible contribution form
is available at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/AGAD.html>;.

Mr. Mowszowicz should also check through the archives of Jewishgen's
