I would greatly appreciate help with translation of ViewMate file VM 106.
This document, in Portuguese, is approximately 300 years old (Hebrew year
5459.) It bears the signature of my ancestor, Aron Querido. Thanks for
your help.

Disinterest of Family Members #general

<< I've been so excited about all my discoveries, as well as thrilled to
hear of other family's searchs--thrilled to the point where I feel such
a deep Jewish identity!--that it's beginning to hurt me not to be able to
share these discoveries with the remaining living members of my family.
An irony or just another familiar story? Maybe I'm just upset about
what "family" is. Or isn't. >>

I think all of this on this group empathize with you; we have all been
in your situation. It is sometimes difficult to be the only one in your
family jumping up and down with joy when you have made a discovery. Many
years ago I attended a lecture given by Arthur Kurzwiel, who told a story
when he first began his research. He was sitting in an archive when
someone jumped up shouting, thrilled that they had just discovered a
connection with their family and Abraham Lincoln. At the time, he didn't
understand what they were so excited about.

All of us on this group enjoy hearing how others have made wonderful
connections. This is the heart and soul of genealogy and why we do it.
Remember that you can always share it with us, your "other" family!

"google-moogle" is also good with a shot of Vodka and orange juice
concentrate beaten into the egg and other stuff. I believe the word
comes >from "Gog and MaGog" This is a traditional Jewish cure for sore
throats.
I saw a Chazon down one of these once (Made by his Russian grandmother)
before davening Rosh Hashanna.

My mother used to make me "google-moogle" when I had laryngitis. It

consisted of an egg yolk beaten with lots of sugar. Does this sound

Copyright permissions #general

Ada Greenblatt <ada.Greenblatt@...>
 

I am in final throes of completing a very extensive JewishGen ShtetLinks
page for my ancestral shtetl of Seta/Shat, Lithuania.

This page can currently be viewed on my home page at:

<http://home.att.net/~ada.greenblatt/>

It is not yet ready to be uploaded to the JewishGen server because I am
still in the process of getting the necessary copyright permissions for the
English translations of articles on Seta/Shat that were originally
published in Yiddish or Hebrew texts (these articles will not be put on my
website unless and until I get that permission). In that regard, can
someone please tell me who to contact for the following:

A. Berl Kagan's "Jewish Cities, Towns, and Villages in Lithuania until
1918: Historical-Biographical Sketches" which was self-published by the
author in 1991 in Brooklyn, NY. Berl Kagan is deceased. Who can grant me
the permission? Hope I don't have to do an heir search. < vbg >

B. "Lite, Volume 1", which was edited by Mendel Sudarsky, U.
Katzenelenbogen, and J. Kissin. Published in NY in 1951 by the
Jewish-Lithuanian Cultural Society. The copyright ran out in 1998 (47
years after publication), unless it was renewed. The Jewish-Lithuanian
Cultural Society existed only until 1965, so I have a feeling that the
copyright for "Lite, Volume 1" was _not_ renewed. Does anyone know for sure?
Would someone in Washington, DC be willing to check this out for me at the
Library of Congress in exchange for a comparable amount of genealogical
research that I can do in a New York City archive, library or cemetery?

C. "Encyclopedia Lituanica", which is in English, was published in 1970 in
Boston, MA by Juozas Kapocius, presumably another case of self-publishing.
Can someone in Boston please give me the address of whom to contact? If it
is not listed, any other suggestions?

Update on "List o zagladzie Zydow w Drohobyczu" #general

Carole Feinberg <feincgs@...>
 

Dear Friends,

A friend of Alex Sharon's looked through the "List o zagladzie Zydow w
Drohobyczu" in a Toronto, Canada library and determined that this book
contained only statistics, no names of Holocaust victims.

Alex gave me permission to spread the word. I'm sorry this book didn't
provide the genealogical details we were all seeking.

Thanks to Alex and his friend for this information. Also, thanks to the
several people who expressed an interest in this book, those who helped
locate the book in the various libraries around the world or offered to
do research for us.

Best wishes.
