HELP with printing my Family Tree #general

Warren Kohn <wkohn@...>
 

I need advice with printing out my family tree which runs 19' in length.
I am using Family Tree Maker 5.0 and have been trying to print it out in
"banner" format on a Cannon Bubble Jet 4300 and/or HP DeskJet 722C. The
bubble jet documentation limits length to 6' but I can't print each
segment in 6' increments. I can print in "overlap" format which means I
have a lot of cutting/pasteing to do. The HP DeskJet documentation
indicates that it will print in "banner" format but it will only print one
page and then stops. I can also get it to print in "overlap" but that
still requires cutting/pasteing.

I can live with cutting/pasteing if I have to but I would much rather have
it all in one length. I have tried reducing font size and block size but
that will only reduce the length minimally. Besides, the font is already
so small that any further reduction will make it difficult to see.

Can anyone give me a suggestion as to what I should do to correct my
problem (other than purchasing new software or printer). Please e-mail
suggestions to below address.

I would appreciate hearing >from anyone to whom the Lithuanian family

of that name who were known to be living in Kovno (Kaunas) 100+ years

Re: synagogue marriages in England #general

michael slifkin <slifkin@...>
 

As I already wrote you would arrange with the Registry of Deaths Births and
Marriages to send a Marriage Registrar to the wedding. He would come with his
two registers and book of certificates and register the marriage. You would
also have to pay his attendance fee which in 1992 was 26 pound sterling, plus
the fee for the marriage certificate if you asked for one. However such a
marraige had to take place in a registered building. It ws a very esy mater to
get registered so a newly formed congegration would not have any trouble getting
registered.
Quakers also had their own marriage secretaries like the Jews.

Amdur / Indura #belarus

Michael Tobias <michael@...>
 

Hi,

I am trying to help somebody researching their families in Amdur (now
called Indura). Family names TURIANSKY, GOLDSTONE, PASEWICZ, MARGOLYES,
SHAPIRO.

I believe there are some Revision Lists for the town (probably in Grodno
Archives).

Does anyone on this list know anything of these lists, or other records
for the town?

Any assistance would be appreciated, particularly as we plan to visit
the town/area in under 3 weeks time!

Many thanks.

Lachowicze Records Translated #belarus

GMPalgon@...
 

I have obtained the following records for Lachowicze, Belarus and had all
but the last one translated (since it is so long).

Opening of the Jewish school in Lyachovichi (1875)
Checking up of Jewish in Lyachovichi (1895)
Checking up of the registration of Jewish in Lyachovichi (1896)
The elections of Jews - petty bourgeoisie of Lyachovichi to the city
government (1885)
The case of Shevel son of Matus Sztejn (Shtein) against peasant Kazimr
Maximchik (1911)
The case against Nota Olcha (1883)
- The List of Jews - The Men of Lyachovichi (1884)'

For the document 'The List of Jews - The Men of Lyachovichi (1884)' which
has over 1000 names on it, I have not had it translated due to the cost,
but have asked that the following names be searched for and accompanying
information translated for me. We are considering having this translated,
but it would be over $500.

I have already communicated to the group of people I know are interested in
Lachowicze, but thought I would share the availability of these with anyone
else that might be interested. If you would like me to review the
documents for the family names you are interested in, please let me know.

We are sharing in the costs of the searching, copying and translating of
the records, so if you would like copies of the actual records as well, I
would appreciate your contribution to share the expenses already incurred
as well.

Email privately for my snail mail address.
