Chaver #general

Haim Fridman <fridman@...>
 

Khaver in modern Hebrew means a friend or a member of an organization. But
that has nothing to with its use on a tombstone.

Khaver is an informal title used when referring to a learned person or
religious functionary such as a Shokhet or Khazan, who does not have
rabbinical ordination.

It is in use particularly on tombstones or when calling up such a person to
the Torah or in correspondence.

In the database there is a "grandfather 2" column. Just what does this mean?

SHEALTIEL TV programs #general

IsraelP <p2o5rock@...>
 

Israel TV (Channel One) is to be broadcasting a three part series on
the Shealtiel family, which supposedly traces itself back to King
David. The broadcast is Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings and
I'd expect it to be of interest to genealogists in general, bot
academically and because anyone who goes back that far must be
related to nearly everyone else.

I phoned the station to see if they are planning to offer video
cassettes with subtitles and they said they hadn't thought of that
but will give it consideration. (This about a program subtitled
"Worldwide Family!!")

Synagogue holding the Marriage register that is unless the regulations have been

Summary of Hollywood Chai AJGS conference #general

Louis Schonfeld <lmagyar@...>
 

To all attendees of the 18th annual AJGS conference.

I'll be giving a talk to the Cleveland JGS summarizing this past summer's
annual conference in Los Angeles. While I'm nearly complete with the
organization of my presentation there is still room for additional items.
Obviously, during the conference I could only be in one location at any one
time. Therefore, if sometime has already prepared a summary talk or written
about the same topic, I would appreciate receiving some or all the notes
that you may have. I assure you I will not plagiarize nor use the material
verbatim. I am only looking for information that I might have missed. Your
kindness and generosity is appreciated. If I could receive the information
no later than this Sunday, it would be appreciated. Please send to me
privately at lmagyar@...

I am searching for any surname of SINAI in Buffalo, New York >from 1881-1884 and
from 1902-1904. If anyone has access to a Buffalo city directory for those
years, I would greatly appreciate hearing about any listing there might be.

Thanks for your help.

Found: Tracie SCHNEIDER #general

NFatouros@...
 

Dear People,

Some months ago I posted a message asking whether anyone knew the
whereabouts of Tracie Schneider who had posted a message several years ago
asking about a Senia Solomonoff, a ballet dancer. I received no responses.

Quite by chance, I had discovered her 1994 message in the Jewishgen
message archives, after I done quite a lot of research for a Vitaly Kanevsky,
who wrote to Jewishgen about a year and a half ago. (He is the gentlemen from
Kiev who said he wanted to be able to go to his grandmother's grave to tell
her he had done everything possible to find her brothers.)

Although my messages to Tracie Schneider did not bounce, she never
responded to my puzzlement. To no avail, I tried long distance telephoning
to her, Then I asked the support team at Jewishgen for help, as I wanted
very much to link up Tracie Schneider and Vitaly. Although Tracie in her 1994
message had some incorrect information about Senia Solomonoff, I was certain
that she and Vitaly were related.

Today, thanks to those members of the Jewishgen support team, who
clearly made a real effort to find her, I received today a message >from Tracie
Schneider, now Mrs. Ben Green, telling me how interested she was in the
information I had found, and how glad she was that Jewishgen had found her.

And to think that two years ago I didn't even know about Jewishgen's
existence!
