In addition, a registered company under the name: I. Mahler at 124 Slowacki

The last 3 scans of the 1853 Selichot Prayer Book
and the 1906 Siddur are now posted - an error in
their titles - they are not in Russian, but in Hebrew
with perhaps some Yiddish.

If you would like to help with the translation,

........This may be coming late as the message was returned to me because
I'd sent it in the wrong format - however I'd like to know what the 'R'
stands for if anyone can take the time to tell me.
Thankyou all!.......

In one of my father's books - presented to him on his Barmitzva May, 1923
by Mr & Mrs J. B. Goller (I know we had friends called "Geller" in
Manchester - if I remember correctly my parents's friend was Jack Geller -
could be of interest to Jewishgenners in Manchester) there is the forward:

"..........The "Laws and Customs" of Israel are set forth in the great code
of Maimonides, "Yad Hachazakah", in the "Tur" of R. Asher ben Jechiel, and
in R. Joseph Karo's "Shulchan Arukh". These monumental writings and many
more have been summarized in R. Joseph Karo's "Chayye Adam"

Am not sure what the 'R' stands for. In the stories I've read many men
were referred to as 'Reb' so and so. Was this just like Mr?? or was did it
indicate a level in the religious hierarchy (maybe wrong word). And the
spelling 'Karo' is taken >from the wording in the book. I'm not saying
anything about the spelling as I know that in most cases people in those
times would have written and spoke Yiddish - so as in Claff and Klaff -
just gains in the transliteration.

lookups #general

HENKEN9@...
 

Genners,

Over the past few months I have assisted in requests for identifying
1910 Brooklyn census ed.s I do, however, think it wise to comply with
Dick Plotz's request.

The following web site gives the boundaries for each Brooklyn 1910 ed.
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~blkyn/Ward/ed.wd.html Note
that the "l" before the "k" is not a misprint. I also use a standard
street map that I have enlarged to make things easy and which I take to
the National Archives. I have 1942 street guides for Brooklyn, Manhattan
and the Bronx, which give addresses at cross streets. I assume these
types are still available somewhere.

I have not used the new 1910 indices that are now available at many
sites. My understanding is that they are similar in nature to the 1920
soundexes, which make knowing the ed unnecessary.

However, if anyone still needs to find a cross street (for 1910 or other
years), I can be privately contacted at Henken9@aol.com

Re: MORRIS from Lomza #general

And the name is found "as is" in the records of Sudargas, Lithuania. Chai
Beila MORIS, daughter of Leib, was born in 1842.

Many of the names in Sudargas seem to be German in origin:BLOCH,
ROTHSCHILD, BERKMAN, BROMBERG, GUTMAN, SALINGER, KELERMAN, FINKELSTEIN and
many others.One might speculate that MORIS was originally been MORHAUS or
something else, but at least for some time in Eastern Europe, MORIS was
MORIS.

most have numbers startin with QIV; but some have visa numbers starting
