Dear Hadassah
Thanks a lot for the Nasz Przeglad copies.
This Estera RAKOWER which you found might well be close to my mother:
an educated woman, professor of philosophy, was not common in these times.
She died >from sickness at 26, otherwise she would have died a few years later in
a gaz chamber ...

I am thinking of ways of finding help for going on with this work.

Response to viewMate VM128

We ask for your help in opening the history of Radomsko. Of particular
interest to us are social aspects of Jewish life in our town. We are
hoping to gather material about relations and remembrances in order to
publish a book. We would like to devote particular time to the time of
occupation, regretfully the archival resources are very limited.
Should the gathered materials be broad in nature we would like to
publish a separate book dedicated to the Holocaust in Radomsko. We also
wish to open an Internet site on this subject.


A Bronx Hospital Birth vs Born at Home #general

<Does anyone know where I can begin to look for a list of hospitals that
were in existence in the Bronx, NY back in 1931? Do you think it's possible
to retrieve a relative's birth records >from a hospital >from back in that
time period?>

As people have suggested concerning telephone book listings for possible
Bronx hospitals, you would be able to find that information. But does
anyone know when most births started to take place in hospitals instead of
at home? Please consider that the birth did not take place in a hospital!

Rhoda Miller <MillerR@...>
 

Dov EISDORFER of Haifa, Israel has just self-published his one name study
"The Eisdorfer Family Genealogy: the history of the family, its origin and
roots." This book is the result of years of extensive research in various
archives throughout Eastern Europe and the US. This work contains
approximately 1200 names divided among 13 identified branches of the
Eisdorfer name. The primary towns >from which this family emerged are
Eisdorf, Pasika, Suskov, Brod, Ilonca, Munckas, Kis-Almas, Nyiraghaza,
Kisvarda, Patrohr, Gegany and Ungvar located in Hungary and the sub-
Carpathian region that is currently in the Ukraine.

Copies of this work are available in Hebrew and English and to date have
been placed in Yad Vashem and Beth Hatefusot.

I have no commercial interest in this work. As an Eisdorfer descendent,
I have worked extensively with him on this project, especially as pertains
to the US research. Dov does not have an e-mail address and so I serve as
a contact for further information.

Palestinian Jews #general

Has anyone ever read any accounts of people who are Jewish according
to Halacha who are Palestinians (or other Arabs) because their mothers
were Jews?

I have been in touch with one such individual whose mother's mother
married an Arab many years ago and lived in an Arab town. I think
this is a very interesting subject. I think I read somewhere that
there is a clan of Palestinians on the West Bank who claim Jewish
ancestry.
