Re: Old telephone books #general

The NY Public Library keeps old phone books >from almost every country in
the world. I believe they are not stored at their main location. Best
to telephone the library and find out where to go to access the books.

Thanks.

Name research #general

jo schwartz <joschwartz@...>
 

There have been several responses to questions about names that are
disturbing. Their tone is scolding. This is unpleasant to read and
offputting to any new member of our group. Education on the best way to
use the facilities of Jewish Gen is one thing. Making someone feel self
conscious for his (possibly redundant or naive) question is quite another.

People come here with a wide variety of expertise. They may be unaware of
the archives. They may have forgotten about it (I certainly have at times).
Reminders of other ways to research things is great, but could people please
be a little kinder in their tone?

Re: Berlin Jewish Newspaper #general

James Bennett <bennett@...>
 

The Jews of Berlin, >from about 1900 until 1933, published
their death notices in a daily paper, Berliner Tageblatt, and
that is the best place to search for deaths. The paper was
a liberal daily, read by all the Jews of Berlin and it was
considered to be the "Jewish" paper.

The death notices are often large, black framed ads, full
of information about the deceased, a list of surviving
family members, etc. The entire run of the paper is
available on microfilm at major libraries.

The various Jewish community weeklies may have
listed deaths, but they didn't seem to publish big
death notices placed by the families.

Not only is it dueto the professional quality of the job but also

search a grave ... #latinamerica

Yoav Epelman,TLV R&D <yoave@...>
 

Hi
I have a hard task.
I search the death certificate of my wife's great grandfather,
Behor Yossef Gabay (first son Yosef), who was murdered in
Argentina in 1918.

His son, my wife's grandfather, was 1 year old only when his
father was murdered and he was only son. The family doesn't
know anything about the great grandfather. They know only his
name (Behor Yosef) and that he was murdered on 1918. He is
buried in Buenos Aires. That's all.

If someone knows the address of an old Jewish cemeteries in
Buenos Aires please response. We even don't know where exactly
he is buried.

Thanks anyway.
