I am indebted to Alan Shuchat who was able to give me the name of a Great
Uncle >from the 1913 edition of the M.P. Business Directory. If there was a
directory for 1913, I presume that there may be others. How might I go
about trying to find other such directories? I am particularly interested
in Mogilev Podolskiy and Odessa around 1900. I am also lookking for the
name DOLER (or similar) in Vienna between 1901 and 1907.
I live in the south-east of England and to my knowledge there is no such
information available in this country. (I could be wrong).

Re: Goodman and Jennie COHN #general

Goniper <goniper@...>
 

Allan -

Did you send me some emails over the past week regarding the Goodman Family.
My name is Richard Sinykin. My hard drive crashed and I lost all of my emails
over the past two weeks.

To jog your memory, my great-great grandfather was Louis "Leib" Goodman of
Kamanets Podolskij, Russia. He may have been a brother to the chief rabbi in
Kamanets Podolsk. I do not know for sure. Leib married Lena Dockman and they
had the following children - Jacob (my great-grandfather), Samuel, Anna, Clara,
Jennie, and Sarah.

They were all born inKamanets Podolsk and immigrated through New York circa
1889.

Please resend any of your past emails regarding the Goodman connection. Sorry
for the inconvenience.

Re: synagogue marriages in England #general

Nick Landau <nick@...>
 

The current situation regarding all weddings in the UK is to be found
in this website:

http://www.weddings.co.uk/info/england.htm

Now it is possible to have a civil service in all manner of venues eg a
football stadium but this is a recent innovation. I believe that one of
the few or only groups allowed to have a wedding in the open until recently
were the Jews.

I am fairly certain that before these changes that the option was either to
get married in a registry office (civil) or to marry under a religious
denomination.

My feeling is that if a denomination was not registered for marriages that
the couple would have to marry in a registry office and then presumably
have their own ceremony later on in their religious premises. Otherwise
there would have been no possibility for new denominations to arise able to
carry out their own services. They clearly would not emerge fully fledged
ready to carry out authorised marriage services.

I would imagine that hardly anybody knows about the law except marriage
secretaries. In the United Synagogues the minister is often the marriage
secretary and would know the law.
It is quite likely that most of the unregistered weddings are carried out
by people ignorant of the law. In my experience synagogue executives do
not want to do anything illegal and so do not allow unregistered weddings
to take place in their sybaggoues.If you belong to a synaggoue of any
denomination ask the marrriage secretary to check his handbook for you.
The situation with non-registered place of worships is that they arrange
for a marriage regisitrar to be present.

Conversions and assimilation #general

Pyotr@...
 

I am interested in how many Jews were forced or coerced into
converting especially to the Orthodox church around the turn of
the century. I realize that assimilation is not a subject that
is easily analyzed, but if there are any books or websites that
would shed light on the subject, I would appreciate hearing
about them.
