Genealogy of Arthur MILLER #general

rromem <meirromem@...>
 

Dear Genners,

We are searching for the names of the parents of the playwright Arthur
Miller. Also their shtetl back in Lithuania (we think).

A possible link may be a Mark Miller in Louisville about 1924, perhaps a
cousin of the parents of A>M>

If there is anyone who can help please contact me privately.

Thank you,
Ros Romem


Chana/Chasa #general

Elynn Boss <bossgen@...>
 

I'll add my two cents. My Hebrew middle name is Chana, named for my
great-grandmother Chana. Anna is on her death certificate and
gravestone, and she never learned English. My grandmother always called
me Chansie.

Re: Family lists for Vilna after 1858 #general

Marty <marty@...>
 

I can't answer Peter's question but have one of my own on the same subject.

How complete was the "last full revision" for Vilna that took place in
1858?
Did it all survive?
How much of it in part of the ALD?

I have looked around on the ALD environs and can't seem to find any
discussion of how complete/incomplete the revision lists are or whether or
not they are all on-line.

Thanks

Chelm Surnames: LEBENSBAUM / SPOSOB #general

Yaacov Slizak <yslizak@...>
 

Dear Friends,

The Chelm records out of JRI-PL show up the following Birth entry:

Name: LEBENSBAUM Salomon, son of Jankiel and Pina SPOSOB - b:1938

Do any of these surnames mean anything to you? I have been
researching the SPOSOB surname for a while, and this is the first
time I came across a SPOSOB in Chelm. All of them were >from Lyuboml
or Kurytnycja (Ukraine) or Dubenka (Poland). Not far >from Chelm,
though...

Any information will be appreciated.

Regards,

Yaacov Slizak,

First Name: Kazimiera #general

Yaacov Slizak <yslizak@...>
 

Dear Friends,

Is the polish first name "Kazimiera" a typical Jewish one? I have never
heard of this one.

A Polish pal friend of mine is called SPOSOB - surname I am researching -
but his family (up to grandparents) have no knowledge of any Jewish
heritage.

His grandfather is called Roman and he's >from Radzyn Podlaski (Pol). His
grand-aunt is called Kazimiera and she's >from Ivano Frankivsk (Ukr).

Thanks,

I write in partial response to the posting >from Ken Gompertz who asks

<SNIP> Absolutely fabulous!! Research riches on the internet through
JCR-UK. No? Exactly what can I access without becoming a JGSGBer?
<SNIP>

The answer is that patience for just a few more weeks is required. The
web pages are being prepared and will encompass much United Kingdom
Community information including searchable databases. This will be
different data >from that on the JGSGB Members Corner web pages.

We were anxious to get the JCR-UK SIG up and running and decided to do
so with the discussion group as a kick off to be followed by the web
pages. Please be patient all WILL be revealed in the not too distant
future.

In the meantime it is a shame that what started off as a promising
discussion group has fizzled out. Hopefully this is because of summer
holidays and Toronto Conference rather than the lethargy of its members.

Come on everyone, please start the messages rolling again.

SIGs (special interest groups) augment my genealogical research; with gusto
I joined JCR-UK.

Gary Luke, in an email (10 July) to new JCR-UK members, said::

"The project will develop an integrated searchable database using records
from a variety of sources including:
- Birth, circumcision, marriage and burial records.
- Synagogue membership lists
- School pupil lists
- Trade directories
- Immigration records
- Jewish Charity records (including donation lists)
- Newspaper records."

How do we tap these sources?

Or will they exist apart >from this SIG, as Gary Luke appears to say later in
that same email, rather than being a part of it?:

"The second phase will be a website and the release of the first batch of
records into the searchable database, which is expected to occur in
Autumn/Winter 2002."

Also perplexing:: Laurence Harris says in that same email announcement:

"'The JCR-UK project will provide an invaluable on-line resource for both
genealogists and those interested in UK Jewish communities. I am
delighted that this project is being supported by the combined resources
of both the JGSGB who are the 'Centre of Excellence' for UK Jewish
genealogical research, and JewishGen with their unrivalled expertise in
the use of the Internet to benefit Jewish Genealogy'."

And Carol Skydell joins in with:

"'JewishGen is so pleased to be able to provide this information as a
public service to the world wide community of those researching their
Jewish ancestry, history, culture and heritage. The joint JCR-UK project
is just one more piece of the massive grass roots effort creating another
link in the chain being forged by JewishGen towards preserving our history
for future generations.' "

Absolutely fabulous!! Research riches on the internet through JCR-UK. No?
Exactly what can I access without becoming a JGSGBer?

The silence of members of this promising SIG might signify confusion as to
what JCR-UK can offer other than a discussion forum.
