Apparently, the newest version of AOL's software has an E-mail program
that sends messages only in multi-part MIME format. This format is
incompatible with the software this listserve uses, and messages sent to
any of JewishGen's news groups or SIGs will be unreadable to those who
try to read them. Messages received in this format will be rejected by
JewishGen moderators. PLEASE, if you are considering upgrading to the
latest version of AOL software, hold off until we can figure a work
around. I can assure you we are looking at it carefully. Thanks.

And >from Carol Skydell:

Thanks to the persistence of JoAnne Vanett, we have an answer >from AOL
regarding version 6. There is NO option to select plain text in ver 6

JewishGen is seeking the advice of a programmer on whether it is possible
for us to have a special script written to strip out the mime in any
message coming in with it.

The moderation team for the discussion group is also going to experiment
with cleaning up messages in mime and stripping out the mime commands in
the header.

Will keep you posted via this list

Research in Poland and Ukraine #general

Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

I have now hired four different researchers in Poland and
Ukraine. I have had mixed results--most very good, and one
very bad. But I have learned one thing: In my particular
cases, the most reputable researchers stated a fee (often as
a per-hour rate; plus expenses) and collected all or most of
the fee after the research was complete--rather than stating a
single large fee and collecting it up front, before any research
has begun. Please note that there are many researchers around
the world. My remarks refer only to my specific experiences.
I am not attempting to make generalizations, state an unbending
rule, or recommend proper behavior for researchers to follow.

Some time ago I queried if anyone new of a Brookman family consisting of a
Mother and three daughters who moved >from Denver to California sometime in
the 1940s. They probably settled in Los Angeles or perhaps in San Francisco.
I have had no response, and am trying again. Hopefully, Bennett J. Sukonick

Location in Latvia #general

mingram570@...
 

Dear Jewishgenners,

An elderly relative reported to me that he has a 1933 family letter
envelope, with a return address in Latvia. It reads as follows, according
to our telephone conversation:
Latvia
ABSZ Hanfmann
Wilhelemine Strasser
(Bei Voss)

My cousin says that Hanfmann was the sender of the letter, Wilhelemine
Strasser is obviously a street address and that bei means "near" in
Yiddish.
My question is, does anyone know what this Bei Voss could mean? It's a
location in Latvia, I assume. Also, how should I interpret ABSZ?
Thank you in advance for your help.

Dr. Lucja FREY GOTTESMAN family #general

Renee Gottesman <reneeg@...>
 

Searching for family of Dr. Lucja FREY GOTTESMAN, neurologist, born 1889
in Lwow, Poland. Lucja apparently practiced medicine in Lvov and Warsaw
between the years 1925-1942. She married Marek GOTTESMAN and had a child
in 1930. Related known surnames are WEINREB and WECHSLER.

An original “Questionnaire for First-time Registration of Health
Professionals,” completed by Lucja and dated 1942, has recently been
located. Included in the paperwork is Lucja’s photo. The owner of this
document contacted me several days ago hoping my GOTTESMAN husband was
related, and was disappointed to hear that, based our limited family
information at this time, he was not. The document owner would
appreciate the opportunity to be able to give this quiestionnaire to a
member of Lucja's surviving family. He welcomes any leads you may be
able to provide.

Re: The name Ida #general

Ida & Joseph Schwarcz <idayosef@...>
 

Obviously the name was Chaiki, with the CH pronounced guttarally, a common
diminuitive/nickname for Haya(or Chayah, if you will). The Hebrew letter
"het" is transliterated as H with a dot under it in the US and as Ch in
other places.

Hello everyone,
I read about the name of Ida >from Ida Selavan Schwarcz who said her
Hebrew name was Haya. I sent a copy of her message to my cousin whose
mother, my aunt, was named Ida and then changed it to Idell.
He wrote me back that it was interesting however his mother's name was
Chicki. He was not sure if that was spelled correctly however that is
how it sounded. Has anyone ever heard of a Hebrew name sounding like
Chicki? And giving the girl the name of Ida?
Thanks to all.
