I wonder if this has any connection with the similar name (SKVARE)of a
Chassidic group in NY ?

Re: SS-5 Application For Genealogoy Research Not Worth Requesting #general

I recently got a form SS-5 which was a xerox of the 1936 application and
had both the birthdate of the person and her parents' names, all previously
unknown to me. It was well worth the $7.

Mystery word in Hebrew birth record #general

Ruth Rosenbloom <ruthmf@...>
 

A book has come to light, in which my husband's
grandfather recorded the birth of each of his
children, in Hebrew. Each record begins, "My son (or
daughter), [name] was born ... on [day and date].
Before the date there is, in each record, a word, or
an abbreviation, that consists of the letter Bet,
followed by what looks like a ditto mark, then Gimel
and Tet. The tet has a squiggle over it that looks
like a Spanish tilde. If someone can let me know the
meaning of this notation I would be very grateful.

Encyclodedia of the Ukraine #general

Matt Friedman <rabbi@...>
 

I found a copy of the "Encyclopedia of the Ukraine" at the Family
History Library when in Salt lake for the IAJGS conference. It had
numerous entries that would be of interest to the Jewish genealogist
including a brief history of the Jews of Ukraine, city entries and
biographies. I would reccomend it as a resource.

Judaism is alive and well in St. Paul. "Sons of Jacob" has moved to
Mendota (a suburb) but there are three other synagogues in St. Paul the
Mount Zion Temple, Rabbis Misha Zinkow and Elka Abrahamson still
oprerates at 1300 Summit Ave. (612) 698-3881. This congregation is a
few blocks away >from the Sons of Jacob site on Portland Ave. In
addition to Mount Zion, there is Chabad congregation on Edgecumb and a
conservative synagogue, "Sons of Aaaron," on River Rd. I was a student
at Macalester College >from 1976-1980 and attended services at some point
at all three places including Sons of Jacob. My memories of Sons of
Jacob it were that there was a choir made up of old men who were
imported >from Eastern Europe. Recently I spoke to Rabbi Norman Cohen
from the Twin Cities who told me of the congregation's SOJ's move
several years ago.There is also an active JCC in St. Paul.

Best way to find connections? #general

steven.chall@...
 

It seems that most moderators choose to add the response: "By far,
the best way to connect with other people searching the same names and/or
ancestral towns is to list your surnames and ancestral towns on the
JewishGen Family Finder (JGFF)....." to those overly general postings
stating "If any of these names is familiar, please get in touch.."
I would suggest that while this may be efficient for the *primary*
names and certainly the towns we are researching, the odds would
certainly improve if one searched the FTJP (Family Tree of the Jewish
People). Searching both is even better.
Many names that became part of our families are not part of our
active search and probably are not included on our JGFF listing but would
be found on the FTJP. Of course, if more people submit their trees (at
whatever stage of completeness the tree exists), the odds will improve
even more. Remember a submitted tree can always be updated as more
information becomes known.
