Zlotta FORMAN, Zhitomir to Chicago #general

phyllis forman <fill4man@...>
 

Hi,
Trying to trace the roots of brothers, Sam (Shimon Hesch) & Philip
(Feivish) FORMAN, who immigrated to Boston >from Zhitomir, around 1910.
Sam arrived with wife, Esther SILVERMAN. Philip arrived with son, Edward,
whose mother had died in Ukraine & Philip married Rose SHUSTERMAN, in
Boston.

The brothers had a sister (maybe others we don't know about), Zlotta, who
settled in Chicago. We don't know her married name. All I know about her
is she used to sing the song *golden earings*; and I've heard that one of
her daughters was an opera singer.

thanks,
Phyllis

KANTOFSKY (KONTOBSKY)>from Kossovo, Khomsk - Belarus


First names: Gedaliah, Gute Leib #general

Jon Meltzer <jonmeltzer@...>
 

Family tradition says that my great-great grandfather Moshe MELTZER, >from
Volozhin (now in Belarus) had four sons that came to the US. I'm looking
for two of them: Gedaliah and Gute Leib.

Gedaliah must have taken an American first name, as I can't find any
Gedaliah Meltzers in the 1900-1930 census indexes. The jewishgen.org
Lithuanian names database says the equivalents could be Charles, Daniel,
George, Gustav, Jacob, Julius, and Harry - are there any other names a
Gedaliah may have used?

As for Gute Leib - does anyone know of *Gute* being used as a man's first
name or nickname, with Leib or anything else? (Leib translates to Louis,
Leo, or Leonard; tons of those in the census, just have to find the right
one)

Question re records of conversion... #france

Rosanne D. Leeson <leeson1@...>
 

I have been asked if there is anyway to discover the records of
conversion >from Jewish to possibly Protestantism, in France in the
18-19th centuries.

Can anyone in France tell me what the procedure there might have been.
In the US it is generally the local Christian parish that would maintain
such types of records. Might it have been the same in France - probably
in Strasbourg? Would there have been anything in Jewish records...?

Any help appreciated. Please reply privately to me:

SITE CITE - W32.Bugbear@mm virus #germany

GerSig@...
 

Fellow GerSig members please be careful. The W32.Bugbear@mm virus
is dangerous and prolific. I have received (and immediately DELETED)
3 probably virus generated and virus infected messages today, all
showing GerSig member names in the "From" line or return email address.

There is a great deal of panic-generated email circulating about this.

If you want the details on how this virus works, have a look at:
http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.bugbear@mm.html

I have extracted and edited some comments >from GerSig members
and they appear below:
---------

"The Best way for you to protect yourself is to have an antivirus program
installed on your computer and to update it regularly.

To protect yourselves further, never open an attachment if you were not
expecting someone to send it to you.

Scan all attachments with your antivirus software prior to opening.
I hope this helps."

Linda Altman - Raleigh NC altmanlh@directvinternet.com

----------------------
from Carol C. Skydell, JewishGen Vice President:
"THESE MESSAGES ARE NOT COMING >from JEWISHGEN MAILING LISTS....
they are coming >from infected computers.

1. The "From:" lines are forged by the virus and may appear to come from
someone you know, the e-mail address that appears in the >from line is
not valid.

2. The Subject lines are forged and when a familiar listname is prepended
in brackets, this is NOT where the message is coming from.

{Example: Mail with a file attached and subject line:"Subject: [gersig] - "

The attached file (containing the virus) is your warning.

Email *** with files attached *** and a subject line starting:

[gersig] - or [frenchsig] - or [bohmor] -

should be deleted **** if the message has a file attached **** }

3. JewishGen's listserver is protected by expensive screening and any
incoming mail containing a virus attachment is REJECTED.

4. JewishGen mailing lists DO NOT send attachments. Anything that appears
to come >from a JewishGen list containing an attachment should be
deleted immediately.

5. Please advise GerSig subscribers to become responsible internet users.
They need to install current virus protection software and keep it
updated as new viruses appear with alarming frequency.
Most are targeted to Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express address
books."

Carol C. Skydell, JewishGen Vice President

FROM: bohmor@prodigy.net (BohMor SIG Coordinator)

If you want the details on how this virus works, have a look at:

"Symantec(Norton) is classifying this virus as a "high" threat.

Here are a couple of key things in the description posted by Symantec:

In addition to an extensive list of subjects, "the worm can create a
new message as a reply to or forward of an existing message on the
infected system" by accessing the file listings in \My Documents.

Instructions on how to remove the virus >from your computer are included
on the page cited above.

I assume McAfee has something similar on their site as well."

Hi Tom,

Thanks for writing. I knew the Romanian place names and locations.
I was referring specifically to the counties as they were in 1828.
Are you saying Szilagy definitely existed in 1828? Maybe I missed
something on the census website?
