I'm looking for information on Samuel FRIEDBERG, my grandfather's
brother, a cantor who lived in Far Rockaway(part of Queens), New York.
I'm not sure exactly when he lived there, but it could have been in the
1920's. He was born in 1862, probably in Grodno, and his parents were Meir
and Aidel FRIEDBERG. I have a possible lead but nothing solid, and the
lead itself may not be accurate. >>

common. [snip]

One of the names of my ancestors in this country was KAPLAN... my paternal

The family name in Poland was Kagan, as yours was. So Cohen might not have
been the *only* change that a Kagan would have made on Americanizing the
name.

Hi, I was wondering if the same is true for Kogan which is one of the

American Jewish soldiers killed during World War II #general

hepstein <hepstein@...>
 

Dear Landsleit--Through the years I have been most appreciative of the
diversity of content of the messages being printed. And I appreciate the
opportunity to see my messages relative to my Eastern European family--some
who were victims of the Holocaust, and others, Baruch Hashem, who made it
to America, Israel and other countries to continue the lineage of my
Epstein family.

One thing that I have never seen included in the plethora of
correspondence has been any dialogue about American Jewish soldiers who
were killed during World War II in defense of the world and most
specifically assigned to units that were in battles with the Nazis and
the European anti-Semites.

I write this message with a great deal of emotion because I and members
of my family have been dealing with the loss of a double cousin (parents:
mothers were sisters and fathers were brothers) for over 50 years.
Most recently I visited his gravesite at the Hamm Cemetery outside
Luxembourg City. And for the first time I am attempting to locate anyone
who may have fought in the Battle of the Bulge along side him, and could
tell me something about the conditions surrounding his death.

My cousin's name was Victor Howard Epstein. He was in an engineering
unit under the command of General George Patton, and he was killed by the
Nazis during the horrendous Battle of the Bulge. He was killed on February
22, 1945.

Is there anyone who is reading messages in the JewishGen Discussion
Group who may have been part of this battle who may have known my cousin.

And remember the closeness of our relationship.

Adoption #general

ifidont@...
 

So many responses have appeared that mine may be superfluous, but there
is a theme that I've noticed: whatever goes into your family tree should
be the **truth**. And if there is any overarching principle of
genealogy, that ought to be it.

Whom you share that truth with and under what circumstances is your own
business and should be according to your best judgment.

How to find living people in France #general

Lifshitz-Krams Anne
 

I am frequently asked "I am looking for XY, he was living in Paris in the
year xxx and he (or his children) is probably still living there".
The best way to know if they still live in Paris or anywhere else in
France, or if there are still people with the same name in France is to
connect to the French telecom website:
http://wga.pagesjaunes.fr/pb.cgi?

Very few people asked not to be on the list.

Re: Children out of wedlock #general

Roberta Sheps <roberta_l_sheps@...>
 

Dear Larry

The question of how you can deal with this very sensitive family issue
is indeed difficult. One thing you absolutely should do is ask the
close members of the family (those who know) whether they would object
if you include the true parentage of this child. In my program the
easiest way to include the information would be to enter the child as if
he or she were the child of husband and wife and then add a note to the
effect that this was not the case. When the tree or report is printed
out the content could then be edited (if you wanted) to omit the facts.
But in that case you would be perpetuating an untruth, which would be a
decision that you would have to make.

As far as legal reprecussions are concerned, I assume you are writing
from the US. I am a recently retired English solicitor, so as far as
privacy rights are concerned, I can't comment, there being no general
legal concept of privacy rights here. However, as far as defamation is
concerned, anything you published would not be defamatory if it were
true. For a statement to be defamatory, among other things, it has to
be untrue. But do make absolutely sure of your facts before you
publish.

Perhaps someone with knowledge of American law can comment on the
privacy question.

Good luck, it's a sticky problem.
