Another suggestion for AOL subscribers is to receive the JewishGen mail list
via the Newsgroup <soc.genealogy.jewish> Bookmark the area and just click
it on. I also get the mail list in digest form. It seems that the messages
get to the newsgroup before the digest arrives in the mail.

I subscribe to several lists and receive them all in digest mode---one mail
item with 20/30 messages. It is much easier to scan the 'index' and then
scroll down to read the message than it is to get 100s of messages in the
mail box and and be overwhelmed and spend time deleting. Is it possible
that the people on AOL who did not receive the mail lists because the 'mail
box' was full ? Just a thought.

This message has appeared over the past few days on several of
JewishGen's SIGs. This has been an ongoing problem for JewishGen and
AOL has not been responsive to our efforts to track it down and fix it.
I am also aware the same problem happens >from time to time with other
outside mailing lists.

.... A technical problem exists somewhere between AOL and the listserver
that sends postings to subscribers.

Today,for the second time in less than a week, a number of posts that
were sent to AOL subscribers in the "Mail" mode were not delivered to all
subscribers. (Neither were they "bounced" back to the sending listserver.)

AOL members who want to be sure to receive all postings should
change their subscriptions to the "Digest" mode or create a second AOL
screen name and subscribe to the "Digest" mode at that email address.
(I subscribe in the "Mail" and "Digest" and "Index" modes via AOL.
Experience shows that only my "Mail" mode subscription has this problem
on a regular basis.)

An alternative would be to use another email provider for your list
email.

This problem is almost certainly true for AOL "Mail" mode subscribers
to other JewishGen SIG lists also. Our efforts to remedy the problem
through AOL technical support have to date been unsatisfactory...

This message has been posted on several other SIG mailing lists. In

There have been reports that recently, a number of posts that were
sent to AOL subscribers in the "Mail" mode may not have been
delivered to all subscribers. (Neither were they "bounced" back to the

individual messages rather than a Digest with all messages for that day.

I am not that familiar with Ancestry's records, but I have never run
across a state that assigns numbers to their towns. There must be an
index somewhere, and it probably came >from the source records that
Ancestry published. Ancestry does not gather and index the records
themselves--they buy rights to other peoples' books and compilations.
So, I think you need to find out what the original source was of
Ancestry's records and get the information directly >from there. Get
the death certificate >from the state. I would definitely *not* make
any assumptions about the correlation between the town and the number
714. The original death certificate will almost certainly give a
*county*, which is how you will determine which Tonawanda is the
correct one.

Name Change New York #general

My father, and most other members of the family, change their last name

Brooklyn at the time. Any thoughts on how I might search for the court
document?

Search for Jacobson #lithuania

Julius S Cohen 1
 

We are beginners doing research on my Grandfather, Max Jacobson and his
brother, Joe Jacobson. They came at the turn of the century from, we
believe, someplace near Vilnius. So far, unfortunately, we have not been
able to trace the family back to Europe.

Joe established J. Jacobson and Sons, a wholesale fruit and vegetable
business. Family history says that at first it was probably push carts,
later horses and carts and later still a truck with hard rubber tires.
Finally it developed into a successful wholesale produce concern located
in Manhattan's Washington Street Market. Joe Jacobson has been
identified to us as a principal supporter of the old orthodox Synagogue
on the corner of Clinton and Houston St in Lower Manhattan. He was also
deeply involved in the Solker Benevolent Association.

We would appreciate hearing >from anyone who could provide any
information about these Jacobsons, the Synagogue and/or the Solker
Benevolent Association. Thank you.
