I am seeking records for the town of Janow (near Czestochowa, Przyrow,
Mstow, and Zarki) for the years before 1863. Having already examined
many other cities in a large circle around this area, I am suspecting
that this town was the original place of origin of my ENGLENDER
ancestors. The JRI-Poland listing on the web shows only these films:

Janow, 1863-1882 B film 1,646,267

Janow, 1880/1888 BMD 1,646,268

Is that the end of the story? Or perhaps is there some other way that
I might search for the Janow years before 1863?

Prior to 1863, it is quite possible that Janow (near Czestochowa)
did not have a sufficiently large Jewish community to have it's
own records. If this is correct, then the families of the Janow
area might have registered their life cycle events in nearby
Przyrow (11 km to the NNE) or even Zarki (13 km SSW).

JewishGen is more than pleased, it is overjoyed to announce its
newest web site. This new site is SephardicSIG: Sephardic Genealogy
at JewishGen, http://www.jewishgen.org/sephardicsig. It is hosted by
Jeffrey S. Malka. Sefard Forum: E-mail Discussion Group For
Researchers Of SephardicGenealogy, the SIG's companion mail list,
will continue to be coordinated by Bernard Kouchel. If you are not
already a subscriber, see details at
http://www.jewishgen.org/infofiles/SefardForum.htm.

JewishGen has long wanted an important Sephardic web site like Jeff's
"Resources for Sephardic genealogy," so when he agreed to move his
award-winning site (Jewish Agency Top 10 and Brittanica 2 Stars ) to
JewishGen, you can imagine our elation.

Recently retired, Jeff has been busy redesigning his site for weeks
in preparation for the JewishGen launch. His goal of expanding
Sephardic research opportunities meshes with JewishGen's objectives.
JewishGen recognizes that there are no boundaries in the Jewish
family and that developing new pathways for Sephardic research will
enhance everyone's understanding and appreciation of Jewish history
and its magnificent diversity. Jeff's belief that the Sephardic
definition should include both Ladino- and non-Ladino-speaking Jews
as well as Mizrahim and other non-Ashkenazi Jews the world over will
bring to JewishGen a wealth of new material >from which we all will
benefit. If we grasp that Sephardic Jews were 90% of all Jewry
through the 12th Century, we can see how Sephardic research can
expand our horizons.

Susan King said in a welcoming message to Jeff: "Many of us have
Sephardic roots that we were not aware of it until we began our
research. Please know that we welcome you and look forward to a
long-standing relationship that will benefit the JewishGen community
and allow us to expand and broaden our knowledge and understanding of
our Sephardic heritage!!!"

I am sure that all of you are as excited as we are. We extend a
hearty welcome to Jeff Malka and look forward to new horizons for
Sephardic research.

Urgently need a volunteer to take a lap-top computer to Warsaw!! #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

Jewish Records Indexing - Poland recently received the gift of a
lap top computer for use in the AGAD Archives project in Warsaw.

It was thoroughly checked, the software we need added, and sent
to a gentleman in New York who had kindly offered to shlep the
computer to Warsaw for us.

I have just been advised that our volunteer has had to cancel his
trip because of heart problems and will be undergoing surgery
on Wednesday.

So, we are back to square one with the computer.... Can anyone
help us? Please!

Biblical names and reference site #lithuania

At http://bible.ort.org/
I came across a very user friendly site by ORT - a bar/bat mitzva online
tutorial. It enables to navigate the Bible - a translation of the Five Books of Moses along with commentaries - You may select the language and then find the link to the Reference section. Biblical names are included in a guide to definitions and mentions of People, Places, Plants and Animals occuring in the Bible - with A to Z links.

http://bible.ort.org/books/gened2.asp
includes genealogy charts showing the family lines of the main characters in the Bible. Look ups may be made using included lists or entering a name to search.

http://bible.ort.org/books/searchd2.asp?action=search
allows different searches to be made. The range for the word search must be
selected: in the translation of the Bible, in Haftarot, in Brachot, and in
Reference.

Lazarus/ Latzarus family #lithuania

edward cross <edwardjpcross@...>
 

Having recently joined the forum, this is my first posting.

I am trying to find out more information about the family and ancestors of
my great great grandfather, JOHN BARNETT LAZARUS. He was born in about
1823/4 in Krottingen (today Kretinga in Lithuania, near Klaipeda). His
parents were Lazarus Lazarus & Esther Lazarus.

According to family tradition his parents died when he was young and he was brought up by an aunt [Not known if this was inthe borders of today's Lithuania or not]. He came to London in the 1840's and remained there for the rest of his life. Family tradition also says that he was a descendant of Moses Maimonides!

He is described in various official documents/ family notes as coming >from Russia, Poland, Courland and that the name was originally LATZARUS. No indication of the existence of siblings (>from family records).

I have sent this information to seven people listed as interested in the
name Lazarus in Lithuania or Latvia in the JewishGen Family Finder database. Have had a couple of replies and one returned as email had changed.
