When I lived in Israel 20 years ago, I worked with a Leon Muzicant, though
I thought he was >from Romania. He was the General Manager of Contahal, Ltd.
in Tel Aviv. He would be in his late 50's now. Perhaps he's related?

Looking for copy of Obituary from Chicago Tribune #general

McCarthy
 

Hi! I'm new to this list and looking for some resource assistance:

I found my relatives in the Chicago Tribune Obituary Data Base:

Edward FERBER (d. April 1998)
Sylvia (GREENSPAN) FERBER (d.March 1997)

I am trying to find an on-line source to view their actual obituaries

Is there a way to find an obituary for Charles FERBER who died in April
1960 in Chicago, IL? He was living with relatives in Oaklawn, IL but was
buried in NY.

CARLIN Family Grows by Leaps #general

Larry Fried <larry@...>
 

Just want to announce that while research FRIED Family, I kept adding my
maternal family as well, and like a pin ball bouncing off names, CARLIN
family members showed up in New York City, Monticello NY, and Nashville TN,
and still coming out of the woodwork looking for each other. It has really
been rewarding and look forward to the continued growth.
Researching:
CARLIN >from Russia
FRIED >from Poland
RESNICK >from Russia
Thanks again to all who have helped and given support.

Florida ID #general

IsraelP <p2o5rock@...>
 

A few weeks back, I asked for help determining if a "whowhere"
listing that had only a first initial was the person I thought it might
be. Several people took the specifics but came back empty.

Now comes Jan Weinmann who suggested I try the Broward
County property tax database at http://www.bcpa.net/search.htm.
In about ten seconds the information came up with names of both
man and wife (the wife's name had also been a matter of some
speculation), together with more financial information than I felt
comfortable knowing. (At least I know that if he doesn't answer,
it's not because he can't afford the postage.)

All that remained was to confirm that the complex named in the
database matched the "whowhere" street address - which
Bernard Kouchel did for me.

So thanx to Jan and to everyone else who offered to help out.

Many members of my maternal grandmother's family (KAMENETSKY) attended the
Slonimer Yeshiva in Slonim. Does anyone have any information about this
institution? I recall once hearing that the school has moved to Israel
and is now called something like the Rabbinical College of Slonim. Does
anyone think that they might still have records dating back to the 19th
century?

Thanks,

Searching: Diana NEWMAN, Simon & Schuster #general

Shmuel and Shoshana Arnold <darnold@...>
 

Hi all,

I have a cookbook, "The World of Jewish Cooking" and was amazed
to see a photograph on page 172, "The Joseph family in Rangoon, Burma
in 1938." My grandmother, Meda Joseph Jacob, is in this picture.
I wrote to the author, Gil Marks, who replied that it was lent
to him by his former assistant editor at Simon & Schuster, Diana Newman
(Newman is her maiden name), who received
it >from her husband, a member of the Joseph family. Unfortunately, Diana
has left Simon & Schuster (publishing company), so he doesn't know where she
is.

I obviously would like to find and contact her, because her husband is
obviously a relative.

I tried Simon & Schuster's web page, but it doesn't seem to work.
I believe Simon & Schuster is in New York.

Any ideas how I can find this woman and her husband? Any help would
be appreciated.

Thanks.

Shoshana Arnold

I want to express my gratitude to you for posting the list of surnames that

I look forward to the completion of the list with great anticipation.
