Relatives In Argentina #general

Bernard Lis
 

I found a booklet dated December, 1955 published in
Buenos Aires. It is titled WOLKOWYSK FUN AMOL
Can anyone translate that?

It contains about 30 pages, written in Hebrew,
and there are many photographs of people and family groups.
Three of the photos, I believe are my cousins.

Inside the booklet, I found an envelope containing a
letter addressed to my father (in the U.S.) written in
Yiddish. It is postmarked 10Mar58 which would be 2 years
after my father passed away.

There is a return address on the letter. I would
appreciate if someone who lives in the area could
verify if any family members are still living there.
Please email me privately.
BerLis@ comcast.net

Also inside the envelope are photos of my father's
Sisters and Brother (my aunts and Uncle whom I never met)
one is a family group (of at least 3 generations)
and on the back is a notation in Spanish and signed by my
Father's sister Ruth dated 12-49

Would anyone know where this address is and could
you find out if the Lis family is still living there.

I will be coming to Argentina on February 28 and
would like to meet with them.

An easy to use tool for searching phone numbers in Canada is the website,
Canada 411 http://www.canada411.ca/eng/person.html I searched and got 87
hits on ROSEN in Toronto, including 3 "E. Rosen" It is a decent tool and
everyone should be aware of it.
I've had better luck lately with this site:

http://www.411.ca/

For Toronto, this gave me 9 E Rosens out of 16 where the first name began
with E. It said that there were too many hits to search for Rosen with no
first letter.

December 2003 report for Yizkor Book Project #poland

Joyce Field
 

The volunteers for the Yizkor Book Project wish all our readers a
very happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year.

Each month after I post our monthly report I receive numerous
requests asking whether there is a yizkor book for a particular town,
whether it has been translated, and where the original book can be
found. All these questions can be answered on our web site.

--If you want to know whether there is a yizkor book for a particular
town and which libraries have copies, the answer is available on our
yizkor book database, http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/database.html

--If you want to know whether a book has been translated, the answer
is available at the translations index page at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html.

--If you want to know where you might purchase yizkor books, the
answer is available at http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/yizret.html.

In December we put online 19 updates, 2 new entries, and one new
book. Remember that all the translations can be accessed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html.

New book:

-Rubiezewicze, Belarus

New entries:

There are many books yet to be translated, waiting only for an eager
volunteer to step up to coordinate the translation project. Our
Yizkor Book Project staff is available to help you through the
process. Please contact me if you are willing and able to coordinate
a translation project. Or, if you have Hebrew or Yiddish translation
skills, you might want to start by volunteering to translate a
chapter >from the Pinkas HaKehillot on your ancestral town.

Many of our projects are fundraising projects. You can help by
contributing money to pay to have these books professionally
translated. The current fundraising projects are listed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/YizkorTrans.html.

Thanks again for all the help and support our readers have provided
to the Yizkor Book Project this past year.

Can someone please explain what "Non Immigrant Alien"
stamped on a Ellis Island ships manifest means. Does that
mean that the person was a natural born US citizen,
or a previously naturalized citizen?

Thanks in advance

Finding an ancestral name on the Duma voting list means only that people who
had a certain amount of money or property were eligible to cast votes for the
person they wanted elected as delegates to the Duma. (Until the US Supreme
Court struck down property requirements and poll taxes, here in the US there
were similar voting requirements for both local and federal elections until 1964
when the civil rights movement forced Congress to abolish the poll taz by
constitutional amendment.)

The RACKHMAN whom Ms. Asherovitz found seems to have lived in Uman rather
than in Zhitomir.

Usually getting more ancestral information in the Ukraine entails hiring a
researcher familiar with Ukrainian archives. This is very costly.
