Help in Rosario, Argentina #general

Willie46@...
 

I have recently located possible relatives in Rosario, Argentina. I have
read recent discussions on this list of the sensitivities of some people
about contact >from abroad.

Would some helpful Argentinean JewishGenner be willing to make a few phone
calls on my behalf to determine the willingness of these people to
communicate with me about our ancestry.

Please respond privately.

object on the floor that I cannot figure out at all. Also, everyone is
dressed in what appears to be, very fine clothing.....strange to me
because I think the family was very poor. I wonder if photography studios
provided clothing for their photo shoots?

Help: Baron DeHirsh Foundation #general

Rosa3035@...
 

Does anyone know if the Baron DeHirsh Foundation still exists and if so, how can I contact them.
My fathers passage to NY in or about 1888 was arranged by them. His surname
was changed either at the port of Antwerp, or at the NY port of Castle Garden.
I am trying to find his original family name in Kiev gubernia.
Please send any information via E mail to: rosa3035@aol.com

My research in Galicia is >from the town of Grimaylov (or it's variant

He had a brother named Morris that emigrated as well. His father's name
was Michael Leib and his mother's name was Syvin GROSS. If anyone has any
information that they have come across, it would be most appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Age Descrepencies, Rabbis as Reverends #general

Ken Stone <ken@...>
 

Marc Erlitz posted a message regarding age decrepencies on various
immigration documents. I have noticed the same thing with my paternal
Grandfather's records. His death certficate lists 1879 as a birth year.
His marriage certificate >from 1909 lists his age as 26. That would be an
1883 birth year. ????

Also, a few weeks ago there was a posting discussing rabbis listed as
reverends in legal documents. Yep! I have my paternal grandparents marriage
certificate >from February, 1909. On the line for who officiated
it is written Rev. Solomon Salovitziok of Congregation Beni (sic) Moshe. In
the world of Michael J. Flynn the Clerk of Cook County (Chicago)Illinois in
1909, everyone was probably a reverend.

Sincerely,

Re: "copple" (kappel) = yarmulke #general

Yarmulke, or more "correctly" yamulky, is much more popular in northern
England than southern England. Even more popular now is kippa that is, I
think, Hebrew.

Hebrew writing on tombstones #general

Kenneth J. <kshapiro@...>
 

Went visiting the graveyards today for dates. I was so bored in
Hebrew school that I refused to learn...so, generally speaking
what is written on the tombstones in Hebrew? Is it a mere
repitition of the english (names and dates), a prayer, or
possibly something that may help me with genealogical research?
