Does anyone know where I could find a list of the descendants of Yosef
Karo - author of the "Shulchan Aruch" - if such a tree even exists?

Re: Glazier's Migration from the Russian Empire #lithuania

Regarding Sallyann Amdur Sack's post on January 7, 2001 and the Glazier
volumes of Migration >from the Russian Empire, that work is terribly flawed.

Liker many others, I have found the volumes missing a very large amount of
immigrants into New York. Glazier missed all eight of my great grandparents
from Lithuania, Belarus and Ukraine between 1875 and 1885.
And when I called the Balch Institute and spoke to one of his senior staff,
she was not at all helpful.

Fw: Hamburg lists vs. Glazier #lithuania

Andrea Vangor <drav@...>
 

Dear Sallyann and list members,

Coincidences aside (and how fascinating they are!), I will say this in
defense of Ira Glazier -- he told me the ship in which my Binder family
arrived in New York. I did not get this information >from the Hamburg
database because my people were "indirect passengers" who changed boats in
Liverpool.

If I had had the sense to check his volumes first, I might have
found that ship name and arrival date, and not wasted money ordering four
microfilms where one would have sufficed. As it happened, I had ordered the right microfilm along with several wrong ones (before I got the ship name >from Glazier's book) and so I was able to obtain the original
manifestquickly and check it against the Hamburg and Glazier data.
Looks like Mr.Glazier misread a splotch for the dot on an i, and the name was in fact written as Sundel on the ship manifest. As you say, it was probably Zundel, a generic sort of nickname.

So he (Glazier) makes mistakes. It was fantastic to find this resource, and to get the name of the ship my great-grandmother took to New York -- the Gallia, arriving on June 13, 1890. Re Benny Binder, I don't think he WAS the mysterious Sundel/Zundel, who may turn out to be a David Bender in
Bridgeport.

A question for the list: was divorce practiced by Litvak Jews circa
1880-85?

I look forward to reading the articles about Ira Glazier and his work.

Tools for looking at old documents #general

Jessica Tropp <jtropp@...>
 

On my last trip to the National Archives, I noticed several people using
clear colored plastic sheets, and others using colored papers on which to
view the microfilms. I didn't ask them at the time why they did that, so i
am hoping someone can share with me the advantages of doing that, and also
suggestions for other tools such as magnifiers that help in looking at
microfilmed documents. Thanks in advance.

Would anybody be willing to suggest good maps (in english) that would have
good detail of Vilna gubernia, preferably ones that have the old names?
Where does one shop for eastern european maps? Please answer privately re:
where to buy.
Thanks.

Re: Wegrow project #general

Hank Mishkoff <HankM@...>
 

There is great news for researchers with an interest in Wegrow
and more than sixty surrounding towns and villages (listed below).
The indexing of fifty years of Wegrow Jewish vital records in the
Siedlce Archives -- records not filmed by the Mormons -- is now underway.

Wegrow (pronounced "vengroove") is approximately 70 km east of
Warsaw, and 17 km west of Sokolow Podlaski. It is a 'crossroads'
town at the interesection of the Liwiec and Czerwonka rivers.
FYI, I snapped a few photos of Wegrow when I visited there in 1999.
(My mother's family is >from Wegrow.) They're at:

Re: Great web site found, if looking for people... #general

I hate to disagree with Denise Azbil:

"I just came across a website at www.jewsearch.com People
register to have their names placed in the database, and
you can e-mail them. There are hundreds of people in the
database, listed in alphabetical order. They also
have home pages of members listed, many of which contain genealogical
information. It's also kind of a "matchmaking site"! It's a great site."
But it is not a great site at all. I took the time to look up on
three people I know including myself. Aside the amount of time to
look up a name it took to look up a name, >from 15 minutes to 40
minutes , in each case it listed about 12 topics which were
supposed to supply information, all contained the name and a button
called email me and nothing further


I doubt if the information received would be very useful at all

Go or write to the nearest Polish consulate. Provide all information about
your cousin. They will point you in the right direction.
Should cousin have died in an POW camp, contact me privately, there is a
chance I could help you.
