Dear Carol and the rest of H-SIG,

Thank you very much for the great news about the
JewishGen/SIG archives. I've been looking forward to this
announcement and would like to congratulate and thank you
and your team on this stunning accomplishment.

For those of you who might not yet fully appreciate the
significance of this new feature in the way we communicate:
we now have full searching capability and can search through
the database of old postings (past July 1998) to H-SIG (and
all the other SIGs and JewishGen postings too) to find
articles on any particular "key word". This archiving
feature will be useful to new members as one can have access
to all knowledge previously created/shared in this forum
(after a certain date). An immediate consequence of this is
that I will now discontinue maintaining a list of past
postings of significance on our web site (though I'll
maintain our data). I'll also soon add a link to go
directly to the archives >from our webpage. I'm sure many of
us will use this feature constantly.


Thanks again.

Marc Polster,
H-SIG Webmaster

Dennis Baer <dbaer@...>
 

I have forwarded this message >from the Mayor of Mukachevo, Ukraine
(formerly Munkacs, Hungary) for people to consider helping this community in
the Ukraine.

The reference of a management of city to world community !

The great damage caused by the flood made us to appeal to you
for an urgent help.As a result of lasting and heavy rainfalls, the
level of the water in the river Latoritsa raised to 6.87 m which is 1.32 m higher than the dam. A large part (2/3 of housing area) is in water. About two hundred families have lost their accommodation. The level of water in this area reaches 1.5 to 2 metres. The water supply system is destroyed. The total demage is about 19.5 million grivnyas.

We kindly ask you to help us.

Thank you in advance,

Sincerely yours,

Hebrew name for women #lithuania

Morris Stillman <stillmm@...>
 

If your mother and father were RELIGIOUS Jews,
THEY COULD NOT HAVE GOTTEN MARRIED WITHOUT BOTH OF THEM
HAVING HEBREW NAMES. No rabbi could perform a wedding without
Hebrew names- the Hebrew names MUST appear on the Kesubah ( wedding contract )!
You may not know what your mother's Hebrew name was - but I assure you
that if her family were RELIGIOUS Jews, she was given
a Hebrew name when she was born.

I would like to add several more comments before this discussion closes:

1. My mother and father were born "Litvaks" in 1909 and 1906,
respectively. They came to America in 1939 and 1937. There were both
from religious families. My mother did NOT have a Hebrew name. Women
were not called to the Torah, and thus did not have Hebrew names.

More additions to the JRI-Poland database #poland

Kesher@...
 

Recently some more Tomaszow Mazowiecki data were added to the JRI-Poland
database. The Tomaszow Mazowiecki database total is now 5934 records! The
data that was added was the death records for 1872-75, 1877-82. These records
were for the records that were in Russian. If there is anyone out there also
researching Tomaszow Mazowiecki and would like to help fund for a professional
to tranliterate the Russian era indexes then please contact me.

Some more Warsaw records were also added to the database. The additions
represent records >from the early years, 1823-25. In the early years the
Jewish records were mixed with the Christian records. Warsaw was separated
into Cyrkuli (similar to districts). So far early year record extracts from
both Cyrkuli III and IV have been added to the database. If your family is
one of the old time Warsaw families then you will be very interested in these
records. The records give the street name and the plot number. I myself
have traced my family living at the same Warsaw address on Franciszkanska St
from as early as 1810 all the way till 1865. Some time next year I will begin
reviewing Cyrkuli VII.

Sochocin data has just been added to the JRI-Poland database. The data added
represents the years 1850-1859. I expect that the 1826-1849 should be live
pretty soon too!

Many thanks to Shtetl CO-OP leader Lawrence Blum.

Kravitz surname #belarus

David Kravitz <dkravitz@...>
 

I have received several requests >from other users about my background to
see if it matches with theirs. My family tree is registered with Dorot in
Tel Aviv (do they have an email address?), the FamilyTreeMaker and Jewishgen.

My greatgrandfather, Philip Kravitz, emigrated to England in 1891 with all
his family, >from Sislewich in Belarus, close to Minsk. I assume that both
his father, Abraham, and his grandfather, Emmanuel, were dead. I have a
complete family tree >from Philip downwards.

Philip had a sister, Bella Kravetz, who married Jacob Halprin and they had
three sons and two daughters. By 1934 Jacob had died and one son, Benjamin,
lived in London, England. Bella and her other children still lived in
Warsaw. At some time later, some or all had emigrated to the USA. Ben, born
1871, used to claim a relationship to Danny Kaye and had a picture of a
"Dina" in his apartment whom he called his niece. Hence my recent request
to locate Dina Kaye.

Ben had three daughters and one Edith (Ida) married Henry Lister and lived
in Enfield, Middlesex, England. They had a daughter called Josephine. Edith
was born around 1910. I have not been able to trace them at all and wonder
if they have emigrated.

If any of this matches any other genealogists, I would be grateful if they
made contact.

Re: A Threatening Letter, A reasonable compromise #general

Carol Skydell <skydell@...>
 

A similar discussion was held in this forum when the Family Tree
of The Jewish People was first announced. Specifically related
to issues of privacy of people still alive, the discussion
brought out several points, not the least of which "You can't
re-write history"

That someone was the child of a named person, grew up and
married, and had their own family.. cannot be changed. It is a
fact. But given the sensitivity of some people about their
ages, JewishGen came up with what we all believe is a
reasonable compromise.

For people born within the last 100 years where no death date is
shown, dates of birth and marriage would be removed. No message
lines which would show source data, social security numbers,
phone numbers and street address would be included.

Thus, we maintained the integrity of family relationships
without invasion of privacy. This might be a reasonable
solution to the problem being discussed. As genealogists what
we are really interested in is family connections....so why not
just leave it at that and not upset anyone by reporting their
personal data which has no bearing on the genealogy of the
family in the first place?

I suggest that the family tree include name,

names if people ask me to. Other than
that, only one name has been formally
hidded >from the tree: that of a murderer
now in jail.

It is, agree, quite a dilemma for us
