Gayle Schlissel Riley <key2pst@...>
 

I have a wonderful map of this town and a picture of the synagogue but I
would like to know where it was located. Anyone have that info? OR the
Jewish quarter? My great uncle was sent there by the government. I would
like to know more.
Uncle's name Aron B. Kahn-Shapiro

Re: BURDINE--Elvis's Jewish link, finally! #general

Is anyone out there connected to a BURDINE family? Is the department store

There was a family named BOWDINE in Tennessee, and I know that Jethro BOWDINE
was Jewish. They were related to the CLAMPETTS...BTW, Elvis is spotted in malls
everyday across America -- what's so mind boggling? (TIC)

The next step is to check the book indexes for the BURDINE family (assuming
your research results so far are adequately reliable). If you know an
approximate date and location, you can look through some books or CD ROMS for
the Nancy BURDINE family at any good genealogical library (eg the New England
Historical Genealogical Society).

I am searching for my missing aunt, born Florence Abramowitz in

know if Roselle High School still exists and what the phone number
is?

According to my uncle she worked in a fur shop in Elizabeth, New
Jersey in about 1951. Anyone have any information about fur shops
in Elizabeth, NJ at that time?

Please e mail me privately regarding all above questions.

National Archives Search Exchange #general

Howard M. Relles <rellesh@...>
 

I would be happy to look up a Ship's Record or a 1900 or 1920 U.S.
Census Record for someone during my next trip to the National Archives
branch in Pittsfield, MA (I get there once or twice every week) in
exchange for that person going to the Probate Court at 2 Johnson Ave. in
Brooklyn, NY and obtaining a copy of a will for me. Finding a person in
their index and getting the copy of his or her will is free if done in
person but costs $70 if a staff member of the Court does it. Is anyone
interested in this genealogical effort exchange?
Sincerely,

Lucky Strike 2 #general

Saul Klarer <klar-pax@...>
 

I went through the international telephone directories. I tried every
country. I went looking to see if I could locate family elsewhere.
I inserted the family name KLERER in each and every place that would
have white pages, and where I could use the English Alphabet. I came up
with nothing everywhere until I hit Belgium. I did not expect the KLERER
family >from Poland to migrate there. I was doubly fortunate, because my
relative was a woman who had her m.n. as well as her husband's surname on
the listing. I sent a letter to them and received a call a few days
later. Her husband spoke in a heavy french accent, but I got most of
what he said.
It turns out that they were also trying to construct a family tree.
Within a few days after I got a disc and printout >from them. Then I sent
a pile of information to them. We are still working on it. Meanwhile I have received more family to add to my tree.
So try it, it cost nothing but time.

Polish Documents #general

Saul Klarer <klar-pax@...>
 

I have seven Polish documents. They appear to be pre surname 1810-11.
They are short handwritten photocopies taken >from FHC.I do not know now
if they are my family or not.
Is there someone who would like to try and translate all or some of
them.
If they are not my family I will publish what it is on this usenet and
maybe it may be
a find for someone else
