Firstly, I am wondering if there are any civil records for Polish doctors
that might be available for the years before the war (or records >from some
professional medical associations)?
In response to Alan Glixman (above)....

This is an excellent book you should consider examining:

Martyrdom of Jewish Physicians in Poland.
1963.
New York: Exposition Press.

Clearer copies from microfilm #general

Diane Jacobs <kingart@...>
 

This also goes for the NYC Municpal ARchives at 31 Chambers St. If you get
a copy >from them and it is not clear then you can order a *vault copy*
which they send on to you in two to three weeks and that is usually much
better with complete clarity.

Fran Segall's question about alternatives to the NARA microfilms for
Boston arrivals reminds me of my experience at the Washington NARA.
After trying to read an illegible microfilm, I asked an attendant if
there were any other copies. His reply was negative, and he as much as
said to forget about being able to read the film.
After I got back home, I ordered the same microfilm through the local
Mormon library, and was able to read the microfilm that they provided.
So, don't give up; see if the film can be ordered >from another source to
receive a more legible copy.

Re: Going to Latvia in October #latvia

Dear Yehuda

It is necessary to write to the Archives ahead of your trip as you will not
be able to get info if you just arrive at the Archives. Please consult the
SIG webpage for details on how to consult and send an E-mail telling them
when you will be coming in and they will do their best to help you. There
is a big backlog at the moment but they do try to help researchers who come
in person.
If you are going round with Aleks he will give you a price on going with
you as he has a friend who drives a taxi. You must get him to give you a
quote before you depart as you need to know the charges.It would be very
difficult for you outside Riga to find people who speak English and he
could also take you to places of Jewish interest.

You can use the cash machines and do not need to worry about currency in
Riga but outside Riga you will need cash as you will not be able to use
credit cards. Having some dollar bills in your pocket is also a good idea
for travelling outside Riga.

When travelling outside Riga it is a good idea to take some
fruit,crispbread,dried fruit etc in case you are not able to find suitable
food. Take bottled water with you when travelling outside Riga.

Velky Mager #hungary

Nadia Rosa <ner38@...>
 

I am trying to find out about the little town or
village in Southern Slovakia called Velky Mager. If
I
remember correctly there was a Maly Mager. It was
situated in the area called Zitny Ostrov. The name
is
prominently featured on one of the monuments in Yad
Vashem, but when I look in the Slovak Encyklopedia I
cannot find it. In hungarian it was called Nagy
Mager
and Kiss Mager.
Could the moderator help me?
Nadia Rosa
Moderator VK: I assume that "Mager" is a misspelling of "Magyar". I don't find any Velky Mager, but there is a Velky Meder, Slovakia, about 25 km northeasterly of Gyor, Hungary. I believe the Hungarian name was Nagy Magyar because large is "velky" in Slovak and "nagy" in Hungarian. Small is "maly" in slovak and "kis" in Hungarian. The 1913 gazetteer lists Nagymagyar in Pozsony megye, Somorjai jaras. there's also Nagymad, Pozsony megye, Dunaszerdahelyi jaras and Nagymajor, Szepes megye, Szepes├│falvi.

Dear Arlene,
Thank you and the many others who have done a great job on Jewish Gen.
I am at the point now where I've reserved my flight to Riga and will
be visiting with the rabbi there and will then be travelling on to
Daugavpils, where the family came from.

I read your excellent review of "History of Latvian Jews" and noticed
that the author lives and teaches in Daugavpils. Do you happen to have
an e-mail address or telephone number of Josifs Steimanis? It would be
a great treat for me if I could talk with him while I was in Daugavpils.

Look forward to your reply.
Best regards
