In 1901, was there any town in Lithuania which sounds like KUCHINEV ? I
only found KICHINEV, in Moldavia.

270 E. 30th St. NYC, Elliot Lawrence & His Orch. #general

Drew A. Techner <user102000@...>
 

I was interested in finding any information about a church that once
stood at 270 E. 30th St. This later became the location of a recording
studio for Columbia Records in the late 1940s.

My late father recorded "Elevation" and "Between the Devil and the Deep
Blue Sea" there with the Elliot Lawrence Orchestra. He played the trumpet
solos.

Elliot Lawrence is the son of the late Stanley Broza who once owned
Philadelphia radio station WCAU.

I am seeking to contact any members of the original road band
(1948-1951).

Please reply personal. Thank you.

Re: Fate of St. Louis passengers in 1939 #general

Rosanne D. Leeson <leeson1@...>
 

Dear fellow Genners,

There have been a number of questions and posts in the past regarding
the fate of the 936 passengers of the S.S. St.Louis, refused safe haven
by the U.S. and Cuba in 1939.

This week's Northern California Jewish Bulletin carries an article from
the Jewish Telegraphic Agency which gives a report of a project of the
US. Holocaust Museum to mark the 60th anniversary of the boat's journey.
It is planned for May 1999. The story of the St. Louis will be the
theme of the Days of Remembrance showcase in the Capitol Rotunda (D.C.)
for a week around Holocaust Rmembrance Day, which is April 13. A
reunion of survivors is also planned in May.

At the present time there are still approximately 35 passengers whose
fate is unknown. Scott Miller, coordinator of the project is asking
that anyone with information about a St.Louis passenger, or those who
wish to obtain a list of passengers should contact him: U.S. Holocaust
Museum, 100 Raoul Wallenberg Place S.W., Washington, DC 20024
Information : (202) 488-0495 or smiller@ushmm.org

Stryj area census records - 1812 #general

IsraelP <p2o5rock@...>
 

Seifer Stryj (page 31) gives some census figures for
1812, including numbers of Jewish families, men and women,
both for Stryj and for the district. This is in Hebrew.

Those numbers carry a footnote (#51) (p. 47) which reads
(in English):

IV T2 Carton 2582 (1811-1818)
Nr. 14 ex Oktober 1812

followed by a table of those same three numbers for each of
Skola, Bolichov, Zuravno, Zhidacov, Bukacovca, Kalush,
Dolina and Rozdol.

I'd like to think that this means there exists a carton
somewhere with full census of each of these nine towns.

Subsequent footnotes indicate other cartons which also refer
to population figures.

Obviously I am trying to make contact with the Stryjers Assn
here in Israel, but if anyone else has ideas how to get at
this information - if it indeed exists - I'm listening.

Constantinople #general

Heidi Farkash <hfark@...>
 

Editors, in response to Sally Janin's request for info. on
Constantinople Jewish route >from Odessa to US my family also
travelled this route. I understand there was quite a
refugee community in Constantinople (now Istanbul) at one
time. My family was there in 1923, fleeing >from pogroms and
civil disorder. I have an abundance of interesting papers
from varous issuing government authorities there at that
time, including the American Consulate, Constantinople
Internal Control and Passage Bureaus, various Hospitals and
Health authorities certifying good health, and references to
Jewish Refugee Committee, and Jewish Colonization
Association, and Rumanian Passport. The most valuable, from
the point of detail, document is "Declaration of Alien About
to Depart for the U.S.", but even a minor health certificate
from Naples has one bit of data not in the others. These
are in many different languages. There is also in this
document group passage papers through Naples, Italy. Of all
these different agencies, the only one I have contacted to
see if they have old records was the American Consulate in
Instanbul. They did not. (Perhaps there is another lost box
of records somewhere in State Dept. files.) I looked up
Constantinople in Ency. Jud. and was disappointed to see
that this era of the 1920's was not covered. An ambitious
person should look to see if something akin to the records
of the Poor Jews Temporary Shelter in London exists for
Constantinople. And many other agencies involved might have
records. My paper trail gives a good idea of what those
using this route went through, and lots of great details are
contained therein, including photographs. These were the
copies in the possession of the family, not the agencies.

When was a note in Forvert published? #general

Julian Ilicki <julian.ilicki@...>
 

Hello,

I have a copy of a note in Forvert - Jewish Daily Forward
about death of my maternal great-grandfather Sholem Glotzer
in Poland at the age of 108 years. As far as I know the note
was published around 1925-1930. The note in Yiddish, as well
as its translation into English, can be seen on the web at
the URL:

http://www.soc.uu.se/~julian/genealogy/photos/ivanik09.html

Does anyone know how can I find out the exact date when this
note was published in Forvert? I live in Sweden, so the option
of going physically to New York and to Forvert's archives is
not realistic for me.
