Is there a NE'EMAN family that was NEIMAN/NAIMAN (or similar) from Poland? #general

Stan Goodman <sheol@...>
 

As you can see >from the signature block below, NEJMAN is one of the major
names in my family background. (NEJMAN and NAJMAN, or with I instead of J,
are all the same name.)

A common surname in Israel is Ne'eman (meaning "Faithful"). I wonder if any
(or all, for that matter) of the bearers of this name have Hebraicized one
of the above names to produce this surname, and if their families originate
in Poland, specifically in Lomza Gobernia.

I would be grateful for any information that might lead me to members of my
family that did not emigrate to the US at the end of the last century, but
who made it to Israel more recently.

Book on Borisov #belarus

Dear Borisov Researchers:

I received the following message which I think would be of interest to
you:

Subject: book on Borisov
Sent: 9/26/98 8:45 PM
Received: 9/26/98 9:45 PM

To: Risa Heywood, risah@ibm.net

Dear Coordinators of Belarus SIG,

You probably already heard of Mr. Alexander Rosenbloom, a citizen of
Borisov
(who lives now in Israel). He has for the past eight years been busy
gathering information on the Jews of Borisov and has put out several
pamphlets on the subject. It can maybe be said of him that today he is
the
biggest expert on the history of the Jews of Borisov and its surroundings.

Recently, he typed into the computer a full book summarizing all of his
knowledge and wants very much to publish it (in Russian). He needs for
this
$1000 and has asked for my help in this. I want to ask you whether you
have
an idea of support for this important project and if it is worth investing
in an English translation.

Sincerely,
Eliyahu Tavger

I am looking for information on a shtetl named Nobel, somewhere near Pinsk

have been spelled a little differently.

Mental Illness #general

Claire Petersky <petersky@...>
 

While people have discussed other inheritable illnesses as a means of
tracking down genealogical information, I was wondering if anyone has used
mental illnesses.

I was talking with someone who I believe is my 3rd cousin. After much
discussion, he hesistatingly revealed that his grandfather was mentally
ill, and so his father spent a fair bit of time in foster homes growing
up.

While this was a painful piece of family history for him to bring up, it
clinched for me that we were indeed related. I could then bring up the
cousins that I knew also had or now have mental illnesses, and he could
see that this was not a personal shame of some sort, but rather something
that could be attributed to heredity.

This conversation I had though brought up more issues for me to consider.
How were mental illnesses regarded in "the Old Country"? (the Old Country
in this case being Latvia) How about suicide? Is there a way I can use
this bit of medical family history to better draw in the blanks on the
family tree?

As always, many, many thanks for your help. This newsgroup has been
incredibly helpful, over and over again.

Efficient Search Strategies for Leo Baeck Institute #general

Howard Pelteson <howardp@...>
 

I will be in N.Y.C. only for a short time next month. I estimate I will have
4-6 hrs to devote to research. I am looking for Peltasons/ Peltesons from
Hamburg and Breslau early 1800's to late 1800's.
Can anyone suggest a time efficient strategy once I get there?

Sutro Library Phonebooks #general

Alan H. Rosen
 

To: Any Northern California Researcher

I just visited Sutro Library in San Francisco and found that much to my
disappointment, their wonderful collection of old phonebooks has been
placed in storage. These were phonebooks >from various cities and various
years. They are no longer available at all. (SOB!) Evidently they were
placed in storage with the hope that some society or benefactor will have
them microfilmed.
