Searching: UTTAL, Kovno #rabbinic

Nancy Dolin <nuttal@...>
 

There's a family story going around that UTTAL (pronounced you-tall)
is an acronym for Yom Tov LIPMANN connected with one of the famous
rabbis. Ed Cohler has confirmed this is possible as it is spelled
yud, vav, tet, lamed. YIVO has confirmed that the abbreviation for
Yom Tov is yud, vav, tet, but YIVO couldn't find a listing for UTTAL
as a Jewish surname nor have I found it on Jewishgen.org. I want to
find text that shows one of the rabbis' names abbreviated in this
form. There are various spellings of this name: UTAL, YUTAL, and
YUTTAL.

Don't laminate copies of photos!! #general

ASK <askaye@...>
 

Arlene - a knowledgable genner! - kindly alerted me to the fact that
lamination will eventually destroy photos, and even photocopies ...
something I did not know when I sent in a suggestion to photocopy and
laminate old photos. I have her permission to repeat her warning on this
list, as I feel it is an important piece of information to pass on. Thank
you, Arlene, for taking the trouble to put me right!

Do you love JewishGen? #general

Hi Genners,
I want to echo Howard Margol's and Sylvia Nusinov's remarks on the need
for all of us to help support our beloved JewishGen.
Until Susan King spoke in Toronto, many of us were not aware of the
urgent need for funds to continue our projects.
Everything that you see on JewishGen is the work of volunteers.
Have you been helped in your family search by a friend on the Digest,
or a connection through JGFF? Say thank you by making a contribution.

We must do everything we can to help. The recent floods in Europe are an
example of the sense of urgency we must feel about the need to preserve
Jewish records which are in danger of being destroyed. The JewishGen
Online Worldwide Burial Registry (JOWBR) project is but one of the many
ways in which Jewish Gen is working to make the history of our ancestors
available to us. We need to have this kind of work proceed as rapidly as
possible, as many of the sites and records are in danger of vanishing
right before our eyes.

I know how empty my life would be without genealogy projects, which have
come about to a large extent, with the help of the information made
available in JewishGen Infofiles, and the helpfulness of other genners on
the digest.

Other genealogy sites cost $100 a year to subscribe. Jewish Gen has the
honor system. Whether you can send this amount, or your budget allows
anywhere >from $5 to $5000, your contribution is needed and necessary.

When you sit down to write New Year's Greetings, try to find a way to make
a contribution to JewishGen, so that all of us will have a Happy and
Healthy New Year.

Any other index for Boston arrivals besides NARA microfilm? #general

Fran Segall <FranSegall@...>
 

Dear Genners,

Does anyone know of any source of index records (by name/soundex) to early
1900 Boston arrivals other than the NARA microfilm index? I have tried to
use the NARA index, but those particular microfilmed cards are practically
illegible - at least to me! Even with a magnifying reader AND a magnifying
glass, they're microscopic - and much of the print is too faint to make out
anyway!

I have too wide a range of years to start looking through the individual
manifests for the name KLETZEL. Any suggestions would be greatly
appreciated!

dear group,
I am searching for any information about a business, which I believe was

SEIDENBERG,in the city formerly known as Breslau, today's Wroclaw. It was
once described as a major men's garment company until World War II.
