Seeking where to find a PhD Thesis on Romanian Jewish Br. in Argentina, 1926 #romania

color consultant <colordesigns@...>
 

I'm looking for scholarly historic research as a journalist. A professor
from upstate NY once wrote a PhD thesis on Yiddish brothels in Argentina
1900-1926, etc. I'm looking for that Phd Thesis to read, perhaps through
interlibrary loan at my local university library or public library. Anyone
know anything about that? Through oral history interviews, I had interviewed
a woman back in the early sixties who said she was told that a man named
"Jack" around 1925-1926 tried to send her to a "Yiddish" brothel in
Argentina on the grounds of being engaged. The scheme was to import only
Jewish girls to Argentina >from Romania and other Eastern European countries
on the grounds of finding husbands for them there. Instead they were
confined to a brothel to service only Jewish men "Yiddish-speaking" >from
various Eastern European countries who migrated to Argentina, mostly >from
Romania during the years around the mid-1920s or before.

Any scholarly information is welcome. I'm trying to locate a copy of the PhD
thesis to read on that subject for my historic research as a published
journalist. Thanks for any information on how to locate the PhD thesis. I
heard about the thesis >from the Jewish Studies Dept. at San Diego State
University about 10 years ago. Thanks for any information.

Belarus SIG- 24th IAJGS International Jewish Genealogy Conference in Jerusalem #belarus

David M. Fox <davefox73@...>
 

Dear SIG Members,

Today, I received a message >from Martha Lev-Zion, Conference Organizing
Committee. She is asking several questions which I cannot answer unless I
know that there are Belarus SIG members who are willing to work closely with
Martha and me to organize and manage the following SIG activities:

1. A Belarus SIG Business meeting to let Belarus SIG researchers know what
the SIG is doing and what we plan to do in the future. We have had such a
meeting for the past five years. It is important that we have an adequate
venue with a computer projector and laptop computer with PowerPoint software
loaded. It is also critical that the business meeting not conflict with
other sessions or meetings that would draw people away >from the SIG meeting.
If this cannot be done, then there is no use having a meeting. A volunteer
is needed to work with Martha and me to make sure that the SIG needs are met
and is available at the SIG meeting to make sure everything is in order.

2. Belarus SIG "booth" or table at the "SIG Fair". The SIG fair at the DC
Conference last year was very successful and resulted in recruiting new SIG
members and volunteers, getting information about new sources of research
documents, meeting and helping people by answering questions, and collecting
donations for SIG research projects. A volunteer in Israel is needed to work
closely with Martha and me to arrange for tables, easels, electric service
and a high speed Internet connection for a laptop. Hopefully, the
Conference Organizers can arrange for a wireless network in the SIG Fair
room. In addition, the SIG volunteer will have to arrange for proper SIG
signs and maps to display.

3. SIG Luncheon. Last year in DC we had a SIG luncheon with almost 150
attendees and many more that wanted to attend, but could not get
accommodated because they failed to register in advance. We showed a video
clips >from members trips to Belarus. In the past we have had a speaker at
the luncheon. We need a volunteer in Israel to work with Martha to find out
more about luncheon arrangements, scheduling, menu, costs, a speaker or
other program during the luncheon, and proper audio and computer equipment
for the program.

Without volunteers to organize and manage these Conference functions, they
will not happen. If you can help with these activities, please contact me
via private email ASAP. I need to respond back to Martha Lev-Zion very soon
to let her know if we are going to have a meeting, luncheon, and SIG fair
booth.

In addition, I need some in Israel who can contact the leaders of all the
Belarus shtetl landsmanshaften in Israel and encourage them to attend the
conference. I think that it would be very productive to have a separate
meeting where all the landsmanshaften for Belarus shtetls can tell us what
they are doing and what documents, photos, and books they have that might
help with genealogical research. If there is someone in Israel who can do
this and work with Martha to to arrange a conference session/meeting, please
contact me ASAP before the conference schedule is full.

Thanks in advance to all who can volunteer to make the Jerusalem 2004
Conference meaning for Belarus SIG researchers.

Re: Fraenckel page 368 n #france

Daniel Teichman <daniel.teichman@...>
 

In the "Memoire Juive en Alsace" by AA Fraenckel on page 368 n re:
Keyle LEVY and David BRUNSCHWIG engagement of 10 August 1747 in
Hegenheim, there is the following statement in French: "Le mariage
aura lieu d'ici Roch 'Hodech Teveth 5507" (translated to "the
marriage will occur ...) Can anyone let me know when they think the
wedding occured?

Pierre M. Hahn, San Francisco
The simple answer to your interesting question is that you have discovered a
mistake in Fraenckel's book.
As you know the book lists the entries sorted by villages and within that
sorted chronologically. Looking at page 368 n at the secular dates you see
that the chronology is correct, but if you follow the jewish dates, you
realise that the last date - of the enty you are refering to - seems to be
before the last one and even before a few others listed before. So something
has to be wrong! An indeed the jewish date given in "your" entry does not
correspond to 10 August 1747 but to 3 August 1745. And Roch 'Hodech Teveth
5507 corresponds to 14 December 1746. So this makes more sense, although I
am a little bit surprised that they fixed a date for the wedding 14 months
after the engagement. Do you know whether this was common practice? Maybe it
would be good to have a look at the original or at least at the notes of
Fraenckel, because maybe there are even more errors in that entry.
By the way: I can't understand the date 10 August 1747 at all; it
corresponds to 4 Elul 5507.

JRI-Poland Matching Contribution Program #galicia

Mark Halpern <willie46@...>
 

Dear Eastern Galicia Researchers:

Based on a matching fund contribution, Jewish Records Indexing -
Poland is providing a unique opportunity to fully fund any town
project that has not achieved its fundraising goal. The PSA
(including AGAD) End of Year Challenge has begun.

This limited-time opportunity is available only for those towns
that are NOT yet fully funded. If Town Leaders are able to raise
HALF of the remaining funds (up to maximum of $500) required to
achieve a fully funded status, the remaining dollar value to
achieve fully funded status will be matched. However, the maximum
to be matched is $500 per Town. For towns that require more than
$1000 to be fully funded, only $500 will be matched.

For AGAD Towns, "fully funding" means obtaining contributions to
fully pay for the cost of indexing, which includes any additional
records transferred to AGAD >from USC after the AGAD project
started. All AGAD Town goals and funding status can be determined
from the AGAD Project Status Report at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/agad/agadtowns.html. Just click
on the name of your Town for the detailed information.

This Program is available for all AGAD Towns that have not
achieved their financial goals except Lwow. Since the Lwow
indexing project has another source of matching funds, it is
excluded >from this program. For those researchers interested in
Lwow, ALL contributions will be matched dollar for dollar.

Here are a few examples:

The fundraising target for Budanov/Budzanow is $938 and $178 has
been raised. The balance to fully fund the town is $760. If $380
is contributed, a matching fund contribution of $380 will be
transferred to the Budanov/Budzanow account. Budzanow is then
fully funded and those records can be indexed.

The fundraising target for Rawa Ruska is $3055 and $1350 has been
raised. The balance to fully fund the town is $1705. If $500 or
greater is contributed, a matching fund contribution of $500 will
be transferred to the Rawa Ruska account.

This opportunity is open only until 31 December 2003, so act now.
We remind U.S. contributors that JRI-Poland is an independent
non-profit U.S. tax-exempt organization - so your contributions
are tax deductible. Remember, the calendar year is coming to a
close! Now is the time to act to get a US tax deduction for
2003.

Please contact your Town Leaders for more information. The AGAD
Project Status Report at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/agad/agadtowns.html provides the
name of the Town Leader and a link to their email address. If
there is no Town Leader, please contact me at
willie46@comcast.net.

You can help ensure the indexing of your Galician town's records,
including records that will become available for indexing in the
future. Please consider a contribution to the AGAD project.
Information on contributing is available at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/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>;.

excluded >from this program. For those researchers interested in
Lwow, ALL contributions will be matched dollar for dollar.

Here are a few examples:

The fundraising target for Budanov/Budzanow is $938 and $178 has
been raised. The balance to fully fund the town is $760. If $380
is contributed, a matching fund contribution of $380 will be
transferred to the Budanov/Budzanow account. Budzanow is then
fully funded and those records can be indexed.

The fundraising target for Rawa Ruska is $3055 and $1350 has been
raised. The balance to fully fund the town is $1705. If $500 or
greater is contributed, a matching fund contribution of $500 will
be transferred to the Rawa Ruska account.

This opportunity is open only until 31 December 2003, so act now.
We remind U.S. contributors that JRI-Poland is an independent
non-profit U.S. tax-exempt organization - so your contributions
are tax deductible. Remember, the calendar year is coming to a
close! Now is the time to act to get a US tax deduction for
2003.

Please contact your Town Leaders for more information. The AGAD
Project Status Report at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/agad/agadtowns.html provides the
name of the Town Leader and a link to their email address. If
there is no Town Leader, please contact me at
willie46@comcast.net.

You can help ensure the indexing of your Galician town's records,
including records that will become available for indexing in the
future. Please consider a contribution to the AGAD project.
Information on contributing is available at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/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>;.

Re: Legitinate or illegitimate child #galicia

lilian schorr <lilianschorr@...>
 

Dear Genners,
On the birth record of my aunt Serl Race Mischel dated 1894, the is a note
stating: "following instructions >from Stanislawow dated 7/3/1930, and the
recommendation of the office >from Stryj >from April 8, 1930, it is noted
that
the child is of intramarital origin....."

My question is:
1) Why was this note written in 1930 on the Birth Record dated 1894?
2) Was it because my aunt needed to obtain the Passport and therefore
as my grandfather was dead by 1930 a civil marriage could not take place and
therefore she could not legitimate her birth?
Would appreciate any comments that would help me understand this.

Thank you in advance,
