saving genealogy web pages and images to your PC #romania

Andrew Blumberg <ajb61@...>
 

Hello all,

The loss of Stephen Morse's site is a cold reminder that we should not
take for granted the availability of information on the Internet. Just
because we have access to information, or even retrieval methods, today
doesn't mean we will have it tomorrow. I was fortunate enough to have
saved some of the searches I had done on Stephen's site to my own PC.
For example, I did a search for everyone >from a specific town. I saved
all of the lists returned by the query. I can open the lists anytime I
like and all of the links on the pages will still work. I also save
results >from JewishGen databases and Ellis Island manifests.

I thought it might help people, who don't know how to save web pages and
images, to provide a couple of tips for saving information. These tips
work in Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) version 6. I don't believe you
can do quite the same in Netscape.

Regards,

Andrew Blumberg

R' Samuel CARO #rabbinic

[Moderator's Note: Please ignore the previous version of this post.
It had the wrong headers. My apologies. ]

Hello everyone,

I'd like to know if someone has any information concerning Rabbi
Samuel CARO. He was my 8th great-grandfather but i can't seem to
find too much information about him. I can estimate that he was
born in the 17th century, probably in Morocco, but i am not sure.

His daughter married Ayyush ELMALEH and they had a son, Rabbi Joseph
Ben Ayyush ELMALEH (1750-1823, Rabat Morocco). Rabbi Joseph Ben
Ayyush ELMALEH wrote "Tokfo Shel Yossef".

If anyone has any information that could help me develop this branch
of the CARO family, i'd really appreciate it.

Thanks

Documentary History of the Jews in the US 1654-1875 #usa

sallybru <sallybru@...>
 

I recently found a reference to my ancestor, Joseph da Costa, in a
book-referring to this book: Documentary History of the Jews in the US
1654-1875 by Schappes. I have gotten it on interlibrary loan for a couple
weeks, and would be happy to check the index for your ancestor or whatever.

EIDB success #general

HENKEN9@...
 

Genners,

As soon as it bacame available on-line, I accessed the EIDB to find my
mgf, Barnett LEVINE. The scan for the Vaderland, June 25, 1906, however,
was not available. I have periodically checked back, still with no luck.
With the unfortunate demise of the Morse sites, I thought I'd try again.
To my amazement and delight, it appeared today!! After a few attempts in
2001, I had contacted the Ellis Island people to find out if or when the
scan would be available. They did not respond, so I have no idea if my
success is an isolated event or if this is the result of a concerted
effort to make all the unscanned visable. For those in a similar
situation, I think my lesson is keep trying (or break down and order the
film through FHL, National Archives or buy the page >from the Foundation).

The scan revealed that he was to meet an uncle, Michel GORDON, of East
Broadway in Manhattan. This is a name I've never encountered in my family
search. Barnett's mother's maiden name was LEVITT, and it's very possible
that GORDON was not the original name. And there's always the chance that
the men were not related at all. In any event, it's another intriguing
clue to pursue.

Talsi Jewish cemetery #courland #latvia

LOUISE HAJDENBERG
 

Would someone on this listserv be interested in the information on the
gravestones of the Talsi, Latvia Jewish cemetery? A professor >from Lancaster
University in Great Britain and I have had recent correspondence. He has
photographs of all the legible gravestones. I am not very computer literate
nor am I able to translate >from Hebrew, Latvian,Yiddish and German which are
on the stones but I thought someone on the Latvian list serv would be
willing to look at the photos, translate and know how to post the
information to the JewishGen site. I don't think there are many stones left
so it is a relatively small project.

Please contact me if interested or perhaps let me know who else would like
this information.

Sincerely,

In response the a number of queries, although the site
mentioned in my previous message
(www.census.pro.gov.uk) only relates to the 1901
Census Returns for England and Wales, there is a new
web site for the Scottish genealogical data, although
I have not used it. The site includes both the 1891
and 1901 censuses and is at:

"http://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk

The site also provides a searchable index of Scottish
births >from 1553-1901, marriages >from 1553 to 1926 and
deaths >from 1855 to 1951.
