Leon Bronstein adopted the name Trotsky as a nom de plume.
This seemed to be a practice of many revolutionary figures.

Empty e-mail with icon! -- web site B & G list? #belarus

In this mornings mail I received an attachment icon with no name
listed. I do not want to open anything without a name.

By any chance, is it the web site with Brisker and Grodner list?

Thanks for checking into this matter.

MODERATOR NOTE:

It did not come through LYRIS, nor the Belarus SIG list!!

But e-mails with nothing but an icon, and particularly with
no sender:

SHOULD *ALWAYS* BE TRASHED IMMEDIATELY
-- AND THE TRASH EMPTIED!
-- AND ALSO DELETEDE >from THE DIRECTORY WITH FILE-ATTACHES!

No matter how interesting it might look!

If you know the sender, but do not expect anything, check with the
sender first -- he/she might unknowingly have gotten a virus/work
and unknowingly be spreading them every time an e-mail is sent out.

But, naturally, first and foremost:
Be sure to have a first class and updated anti-virus program!!!

Kiev Duma Lists Project #ukraine

haflo <haflo@...>
 

Dear U SIG Members,
Your response to my message asking for volunteers to work on the Kiev Duma
List Project was heartwarming, to say the least. We have a team raring to
go as soon as the first lists arrive!! :-)

The project has been listed separately on our JewishGen-erosity page at our
website, so I'm amending my previous instructions. Please help us to raise
the funds necessary for the Duma List purchase by submitting your donations
under "Duma List" at

http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/ukraine.html

Thank you all for your generous giving of time, talent & support!
I know that 2001 will be "our year"!

Happy Holidays to all of you.

ViewMate 196 - done! #poland

Kirsten Gradel <kmgradel@...>
 

Dear Genners

3 days ago I posted a request for someone to please take a look on a Death
certificate >from Warszawa 1869 that I uploaded to ViewMate as WM 196.

I haven's had any answers, and with the approaching festive season I am
afraid the 7 day limit will elapse, therefore this renewed appeal:
This just to let you all know that I have had answers to the above
request and therefore don't want other genners to take more trouble with
my letter.

I must add that, apart >from the personal interest in the family history
and the sheer thrill of the chase, an extraordinary benefit has been the
warm feeling of being a member of such a fraternity. Without you,
JewishGen and JRI-Poland I could never have achived much; being a
genealogical novice 18 months ago with a couple of very meagre facts I am
now part of a big family tree spreading over several continents.

Thanks to you all and good hunting in the new year.

Baranshteyn/Baran #poland

SBernst579@...
 

Is there a possibility that the name Baran may have been Baranshteyn in the
Ukraine?
I have made contact with the BARAM family in Israel, who were >from Labun,
Ukraine. The same village my grandfather Lieb BARANSHTEYN was from.
Unfortunately, anyone who was born in Labun has since passed, so I am
struggling to make a connection. Does the "shteyn" ending of Baran have any
significance?

Przemysl Archive Project #galicia

RivkaLCJ@...
 

Dear Fellow Researchers,

I have volunteered to be the Coordinator for the Przemysl Archive Project.
The holdings of the archives contain the following 19th century birth,
marriage and death record:

Oleszyce 2040 101 1508
Przemysl 16104 1244 17864
Radymno 73 39

Indexing of these records will be completed under the auspices of Jewish
Records Indexing - Poland's (JRI-PL) Polish State Archive (PSA) project. To
facilitate the Przemysl Archive project Town Leaders and Co-town leaders are
needed.
More information about the JRI-PL indexing project can be found at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/psa/>;.

Ilan Blech has volunteered to be the town leader for the City of Przemysl.
Volunteers are needed for the other towns. If you are interested in these
towns or in volunteering to help with the project please contact me.

Searching for HOROWITZ and ROESSLER of Horodenka and Stetsova #galicia

Jane Reifer <cluttercontrol@...>
 

Hello,

I'm finally getting around to introducing myself to this SIG.

I'm looking for HOROWITZ and ROESSLER >from Horodenka and Stetsova (a
little shtetl outside of Snyatyn). My great-grandmother, Scheindel
HOROWITZ, married Peretz ROESSLER, and had her only daughter, Sara, in
Horodenka, and her only son, Karl, in Stetsova. Soon after, they all
moved to Czernowitz. The children went by both last names, depending on
which authorities recognized the Jewish marriage of their parents.

Please let me know if any of this sounds familiar. I'm especially
interested in learning more about Stetsova.

Good luck to everyone in their research,

Jane Ehrlich Reifer
Fullerton, California, USA

Researching: REIFER (Banilov, Davidovka, Monastyriska, Roshch,
Vizhnitsa, Storozhinets, Chernivtsi [all in Ukraine], Israel, USA);
REISCH (Revna & Chernivtsi, Ukraine);
ROESSLER / RESSLER (Chernivtsi & Stetsova, Ukraine, USA);
HOROWITZ (Horodenka, Stetsova & Chernivtsi [all in Ukraine], USA);
SPASSER (Panka & Storozhinets, Ukraine);

[Moderator note: Since your family moved to Czernowtitz and lived there
for a time, it might be useful for you to post this message to the ROMsig
group as well and double your chances of a 'hit'.]

Keep the exchange of information available to the Largest Numbers -- all avenues must be kept open! #galicia

PJL427@...
 

I disagree with the idea to only provide the newsletter on line.
Remember that the newsletter and information is only as good as the
information that it has in it. If we consider that at least 40% of the
people do not have access to the internet, then you have eliminated 40% of
the people that can share information have been eliminated. I suspect that
the number who do not have access is actually higher. In addition, many of
the older people are more reluctant to use the internet and they are the ones
with all the information that we need! One of these people that has a
yearning to share or expand their Yichus, for a grandchild or others may be
100% for you and may have information that would take years of research to
get!

Having the hard copies is wonderful. You can always refer to them. You can
share them, curl up in bed or on the couch and read them. You can't do that
with the computer and I have many computers. Of course, the computer mail is
important. I enjoy reading them and the interaction with the people that
wrote them. On the other hand, huge numbers of people do not have access to
them.

I am not sure, but I do not think that the SIG digests are indexed the same
way that the JEWISHGEN digests are. So the information that gets published
in them seems to be lost if you did not save the document and then goodness
knows how you would ever find them again unless you marked it.

I think that no email Jewish Genealogy information should be charged for. I
do think that the snail mail, hard copy should be by paid subscription.
Other special projects should be by donations.

It would be a mistake to limit the access to this wonderful means of
exchanging family information in any way.
