Whilst doing research on South African Jewish resources in
America, I found some interesting references to materials that
are available at the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center
at the University of Texas, Austin, which relate to several
Irish Jewish writers and provide biographical information and
correspondance as follows for:

Abraham Jacob "Con" Leventhal (1896-1979)
http://www.hrc.utexas.edu/research/fa/leventhal.html

He was among other things, secretary to the Irish writer Samuel
Beckett.

Leslie Daiken (originally Yodaiken) (1912-1964)

Poet and authority on children's toys, games and nursery rhymes.

the family was at one time >from Ostropol? To the best of our
knowledge, they came to the US >from Zhitomer.

In short, if anyone has connections with the Hebrew Language

Just to make sure: Dodan in Hebrew, is the same as Ben Dod

A second cousin can also be interpreted as: Dodan (Ben Dod)

I am trying to find information on my great grandparents- Polly
(Pearl) Fineberg(?) Symons Kushner and Simon Symons Kushner. They
lived in the east end of London >from the 188OS until the early
194Os. My great grandmother, had 13 children and my grandfather
Henry Symons was the oldest of the crew. He was in the royal army
medical corps in war world One and saved 3O men on the battlefield
in France. My great grandfather made slippers for pavlova. Being
my great grandmother was an orphan, I understand it may be hard
to obtain information on her. If anyone has any information on
the above matter I would be very gratefull.

Easy way of understanding cousinship? #general

Saul Marks <saulmarks@...>
 

Dear All,

I've picked up the last couple of mails in the string on removed
cousinship etc.

I was taught that those who share a set of grandparents are 1st
cousins, i.e. starting with yourself, you go up 1 generation,
across to your aunt/uncle, & down 1 generation. Those who share
great-grandparents (up 2, across, & down 2) are 2nd cousins. Up 3,
across, & down 3 is 3rd cousins. The removed bit comes in when
there's a generation difference. The children of your 1st cousin
(i.e. up 1, across, & down 2) are your 1st cousins once removed.
This also goes the other way round, working for your parents' 1st
cousins (i.e. up 2, across, & down 1).

I think this follows what Michael Bernet said, but I'm not sure.
My French cousin views every up or down step in the up-across-down
procedure as a degree of "cousin-hood", e.g. 1st cousins would be
2nd degree cousins, 2nd cousins would be 4th degree cousins - my
pidgeon French extended itself quite a bit when I realised I had to
explain a totally different method of determining inter-relationships!

Best of luck to you all in 2003,

In a query several months ago, I asked for information relating
to Herman Blond (b. 1845) and his wife Augusta Blond, (b. 1846),
in Frankfurt, GY. I'd gotten the information on their place of
birth >from the 1900 census. Yesterday, I found them on the 1880
census, and while they may have decided by 1900 that they were
Frankfurters, in 1880, they were still >from Posen, Prussia. (Now
a part of Poland, of course...)

Can anyone suggest some links or sites with info on the Jewish
community of Posen during the mid to late 1800's? Please email me
at lrooff@hotmail.com.

In response to a posting regarding a news article about
the public reading of victims' names recently in Germany,
I contacted the writer of the article and the German

Would some kind soul be willing to translate the message

I've found that, for general use, the online translator at

good idea of what's being said, even if the phrasing and
grammar is sometimes a bit awkward. It's also free...
