I have recently visited Kolomyia (Ukrainian spelling/transliteration)
Sep/Oct 2000. I have a few pictures of the town on a personal website. If
you are interested in viewing the pictures, please send me an email
privately. Since I had no research there, we did not stop, but were instead
passing through >from Rahkiv to Chernivtsi and back. Since I have seen so
much discussion on this town, I thought to take a couple of pictures. I
also have a very wonderful guide, that I have used several times, who also
does research. For either the website or guide/research references, please
contact me privately.

Re: Lezajsk #galicia

Claire:

In September, 2000 I visited several communities near Lezajsk on a
trip with my Father. Details of the trip are on my website
(www.riesenbach.com). While I didn't visit Lezajsk, I did visit a Jewish
cemetery in Sokolow which is near-by. Ours guide had a book (in Polish)
listing the history and location of Jewish cemeteries and institutions in
the area which he used to help us locate the Sokolow cemetery and the
Polish family who had the key to the gate.

The guide was excellent. If you don't have one arranged, I highly recommend
him.

finding a phone number with just an address and no last name #general

Denise <val5001@...>
 

Genners,

Once again, I am coming to you for help. I need to find my step
grandmother. Her name is Anita Feldman (I dont remember her maiden name).
She lives in Augsburg, (West) Germany. I have an old letter >from her with
the address, but I need to find her phone number. I know she lives with
her sister, and that the phone is listed in the sister's name (Edith).
Again, I dont know Edith's last name. I thought I could do a "reverse
lookup" with just an address, but everything I try tells me I *must* have
a last name. Any suggestions??? It's very important that I contact her
by phone, not by mail. Please respond privately.

Thanks in advance,

particularly concerned with that activity as they "knew" those people were
not going to stay. There may be some immigrant aide records, but my
impression these are mostly related to people intending to stay in the UK,
and were created by non-governmental organizations.

Once the transients landed on the east coast of England, their movement to
Liverpool and their lodging there was done through private organizations
and I have heard of no systematic records. I understand a system of
inspections of boarding houses in Liverpool eventually developed, but the
description of that at the Merceyside Maritime Museum did not suggest
there was any process for registering in individual immigrants.

I believe Hamburg and Bremen did have police registry of transients. But
others will have to provide the details, if they are known.

Re: Happy Passover Part II #belarus

joan breslow <webjoan@...>
 

Hi Stan,
Just my thought that Courland SIG must have a master list so that they can do a
"mass mailing"
which is certainly easier than picking out you, me and other contributors.

Joan in Calif.

*** Joan's reasoning is quite correct, but the mailing in question in this
case was >from Jewishgen, not >from Courland SIG, and went to all SIGs. The donations of
past contributors are of course greatly appreciated, but the fraction of
Jewishgen users who contribute is still very small. Jewishgen functions
through the generous gifts of time of many volunteers, but of course the
operating expenses in purely financial terms are also substantial, hence
the request. - Moderator

Re: Lisa THALER (Chicago) grsLT@aol.com query concerning Jonas STRANSKY.
A Rabbi Hugo STRANSKY was appointed the Chief Rabbi of the Melbourne
Hebrew Congregation (Victoria, Australia) in 1948. He left Melbourne in
1951 and took up a position as senior minister in Wellington, New
Zealand. He later went to Washington Heights, New York.
I believe that his son Michael is living in Melbourne. I recall that
Rabbi STRANSKY was born in Checkoslovakia.

A Happy and Healthy Pesach to everyone >from me, Bonnie and Saul--

My goal would be a 100% finding rate for the requests I have received thus
far, but realistically it will be lower.

It is imperative that you make every attempt to give as close to an full
Lower East Side address. Although East 4th St. is great, having 313-315
East 4th St. (the address my maternal grandparents were married at) is
much better.

In 2001, there are 16 elementary schools in District One. In 1921 (50
years before NYC Public Schools were divided into districts), there were
about 30 elementary schools. My school has the records >from approximately
8 of them. I will continue to strive to increase my success rate for you.
Hopefully I can get my principal to allow me to realphabetize the *many*
cards in disarray, but, needless to say, the kids have to come first (but
I,m stuck--so does genealogy). (bwg)
