Dear Beryl,

Many people will send you Hilary's e-mail address, she has excellent

JewishGenMal's Passover Specials #latvia #courland

Carol Skydell <cskydell@...>
 

With Chanukah behind us, can Passover be very far ahead? Not according to
the JewishGenMall managers who have a spectacular array of Passover books,
gifts, software and videos ready and waiting for you to visit the Mall and
take a look at this fabulous selection.

Just to give you some idea of the range of items.... we have the famous
"Survivor's Hagadah", created in the winter of 1945-46 by Holocaust
survivors in displaced persons camps around Munich. This is an
extraordinary illustrated haggadah prepared for the first Passover after
liberation. Now the Jewish Publication Society is proud to issue this
facsimile edition, previously translated into English and published by the
American Jewish Historical Society only as a limited edition. Interwoven
with the traditional Passover liturgy are two stories: that of the
deliverance of the Pharoah in Egypt, and the Holocaust story of those Jews
who survived Hitler.

There is also a variety of other fascinating Hagadahs including
(especially for the computer cognizant among us) CD-Rom Hagadahs and
Software for both Windows and Mac users <grin>

Would you believe even the rugrats are getting into the swing of
things.....Passover videos for kids..."A Rugrats Passover" Speaking of
Passover gifts for kids, you'll find "A Treasury of Sholom Aleichim
Children's Stories" and the classic Passover song illustrated and hand
lettered "One Little Goat-Had Gadya"

Last, but certainly not least the Mall has some wonderful gift items
including "Chagall: Love and the Stage: 1914-1922"; "The Illustrated Torah"
with wonderful conemporary illustrations by Micahel Meron ; and the
anthology "In Every Generation: A Treasury of Inspiration for Passover and
the Seder"

Much much more....too numerous to list here...this message was just to give
you a taste of what is in the mall, awaiting your visit to
http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgenmall/

And please remember that your purchases in the Mall help support the

Polk City Directory listings - con't #general

BarbKrauss@...
 

Dear fellow Jewishgenners,
Someone e-mailed me asking what is in an old city directory. I'm going
to describe them because I've met many adults who don't know what exactly
is a R L Polk City Directory. (By the way, I worked as an enumerator for 10
seasons, so I know what I'm talking about.)
1. It is NOT a cross-index directory (such as Bresser's) compiled >from
last year's phone book.
2. However, it is like a cross-index directory in that you can locate
residents using their street address. Today's Polk city directories have 3
sections: residents enumerated by alphabetic street names and number;
residents enumerated by alphabetic last names (like a phone book), and
residents enumerated by phone number (I have no idea when this section was
started).
Up through the 1970s and early 1980s, a Polk City Directory used to be
compiled by enumerators who went door to door in cities and larger towns and
villages asking the residents to tell them the name of the head of the
household, his occupation and where he worked, and later on his wife's name
(not shown in the earliest publications). Later on (I don't know when), the
name of his spouse and names of all residents aged at least 18 plus their
spouses' names, their occupation and place of work were added to the listing
for that street address.
At least through the 1970s, if a woman was listed as the head of
household, the listing would show her as a widow, or "Mrs." (to show
divorce).
Like any information source, the accuracy of the listing would depend on
how well the enumerators did their job and if residents (accurately)
answered the questions. And the pay in the 1970s -1980s was low--minimum
wage plus a bonus for speed--NOT ACCURACY. If no one gave conflicting
information, the publisher would keep the old listing.
Today, R L Polk uses other methods which I'm not familiar with.
The year of the family's first listing will at least give researchers a
clue as to when the family moved to that address.
The 1890-91 Polk City Directory St. Paul MN listing for my g-grandfather
gives the following information:
<<
Database: St. Paul, Minnesota City Directories, 1889-1891
Name Business Name Occupation Location 1 Location 2 City State Year
Note that the City Directory shows his name only. It does not show the
names of his wife, her parents who lived with them, or any of their
children. Also, it does not show his (European) origins.
When I worked for the Kalamazoo MI area Polk City Directory in the
1970s, many people still called it "the City Census" even though it was NOT
an official governmental publication. Many people felt compelled to answer
our questions. Others refused, so we would question neighbors, sometimes
look at newspaper articles and vital statistics, school directories, etc.
Good luck researching.

Good news re. Pinkas HaKehillot #general

Joyce Field <jfield@...>
 

Dear JewishGenners,

Many of you will remember when the Translation Project first began in
the Fall of 1997. We had high hopes that we would be permitted by
Yad Vashem to post translations >from the Pinkas HaKehillot on the our
web site. We were allowed to put one translation online but no
others. But dozens of you sent translations to me which we were not
able to post.

I am delighted to tell you that Yad Vashem, the copyright holder of
the Pinkasim, will now grant JewishGen permission to put
translations >from the Pinkas HaKehillot online. There are two
conditions, however.
1) I must make a request for each individual chapter so that Yad
Vashem can keep track of what is going online.
2) JewishGen must provide a link to the Yad Vashem website for the
translations.

In order to manage what I anticipate will be a flood of requests, I
would appreciate donors following this procedure.
-inform me of the chapter name, volume and page numbers of the
chapter you will be translating
-when I receive permission, I will then ask you to submit the
translation and your signed donor agreements.

I ask that you have patience as the Director of the Yad Vashem
publications department is extremely busy and replies to emails are
not always received as rapidly as we would like. I must also remind
you that all requests have to come through me as the representative
of JewishGen. Yad Vashem simply cannot cope with individuals making
these requests on their own.

I am sure that you are as excited as I am about this opportunity to
have translations of the Pinkasim online on JewishGen.
