Looking for anyone with information about a ZOLOTNISKY (or similar
spelling) family that lived on Myrtle St. in Elizabeth, NJ
Aaron and Rachel, along with son Isaac, arrived in NY in 1914.

They were >from Izabelin, Grodno, Russia. They were going to Aaron's
brother Morris Zolotnisky in Manhattan.

Aaron (Harry) and Rachel (Rose) had at least two other children named
Jack (Jacques) and David.

Any leads would be appreciated,

photographers in the Klein Reken to Dortmund area in the late 1800s- around 1905 #germany

lin2@...
 

I wonder if anyone on this list knows anything about photographers who
were in the Dortmund- Klein Reken area of Germany in the early part
of the 1900s. My brother found some very old family photos that he
does not even remember getting. Only one has any information on the
front or back about the photographer, but they all appear to be taken
by a professional. We wonder if they were all taken by the same professional.

Would anyone know if there were several professional photographers in
that area in the early 1890s to about 1905?

The only one with any information on it is of my grandmother's sister
Sophia HUMBERG PINS, who was killed in the Shoah. She looks about 25
in the photo, which would make it 1905ish.

On the back of the photo it says, "Photogr. Atelier
Hammerschlag" then it says "Dortmund Westenhellweg" (must be the address)
Vergrosserungen
Nachjedem Bilde Bis
Lebensgrosse
Platte bleibt Aufbewahrt"

at the top is the number 27719

from this information does anyone know if this is the only photographer
in that area at that time.

Thanks so much, Lin HERZ Palm Bay, Florida

Webpage design volunteers needed for the KehilaLinks Project #galicia

Susana Leistner Bloch
 

Dear Friends,

Although we have a wonderful team of dedicated and overworked
volunteers, there are not enough of them and prospective webpage
owners have to wait a long time to get technical help.

Our webpages are "Virtual Yizkor Books". Just as former residents took
it upon themselves to record all they could remember and publish a
Yizkor Book in memory of their Jewish community, so we, the next
generation, should make sure that whatever we have, every little bit of
information that sheds light on the lives of our Jewish communities is
recorded and preserved. The people who published Yizkor Books usually
were in contact with others living in the same town or country. Contact
with their landsmen in other countries was difficult. To us, in the 21st
century, there are no limitations. Cyberspace has opened up the world
to us.

If you have the necessary skills we urge you to volunteer and help
someone create a webpage dedicated to a Kehila / Shtetl / Gemeinde /
Town / Immigrant Neighbourhood, and in this way honour and
memorialize the Jewish community that once lived there and also
provide a valuable resource for their descendants.

Please contact us : <bloch@...>

We have received the 1878 statistical map of Galicia and Bucovina from
Jay Osborn. I would appreciate a brief tutorial so that I can better
understand the numbers and signs on the map.

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/galicia/galicia-bukovina-statistical-1878/
It's a reasonable request. This map is so valuable that we should
probably dedicate a separate page on the Map Room to explain it,
with examples. As a volunteer organization, our plates are rather full
at present, but we've added it to the to-do list and will send a message
to this forum to let everyone know when a first draft is online. It
should be part of a series of tutorials, including for example on the
use of cadastral maps in genealogy, to more fully answer a question
asked by David Nesher Adler in this forum two weeks ago. Please be
patient as we try to get this info online for your use.

In the meantime, the 1878 statistical map is self-explanatory, if you
read Polish or German; the extensive legend and all the table headings
are printed directly on the map. If like me you don't read Polish or
German, you can do what I did, and use Google Translate or language
dictionaries to explain the meaning of symbols marking a town in which
you're interested. It's slow going, but it works.

If anyone has further comments or suggestions about this map, feel
free to write to me privately and I will collect your notes for use in
the tutorial and/or future map postings.
