I think genealogists better start objecting to the idea of a census poll
instead of an actual count. (SNIP)
Folks, if you want to take sides on an issue, get the facts straight.
Re. this particular issue, please note: NO ONE HAS SUGGESTED THAT AN
ACTUAL COUNT NOT BE TAKEN! The Census Bureau has proposed a statistical
addition to the actual count to catch at least the numbers of those
people who are known to be missed in every count. It would make the
total a more accurate reflection of the actual population, without in
the least measure decreasing the information available to genealogists
in 2072.

So be for or against the proposal on its merits, but please don't hold up
the straw man of loss of genealogical data. This won't happen.

Re: help with faulty URLs #general

Irene Newhouse <newhoir@...>
 

I recently tried to access several web sites that fellow Jewish Genners
cited.
In the first case, www.awf.wroc.pll/~romek/hobby/cmen.htm (jewish
cemeteries in Poland home page)...

This site worked about a year ago. It was only in Polish, but had some
very nice pictures. Around June I tried accessing again, to print some of
the pix & it was GONE. The web master at awf.wroc gave me Mr. Romek's
e-mail address, saying the site had been terminated. Mr. Romek wrote back
saying he'd had the cemetery site on space owned by his previous employer
& was looking for a new host. He has either not found one or given up on
the idea. Note that it was in a subdirectory labelled 'hobby'.

However, if you do a web search on Wroclaw, you should find another very
nice site that has a subsection of scanned old postcards >from Wroclaw,
though there's no specifically Jewish content.

Re: 2000 Census #galicia

Cyril & Sandy Alberga <alberg1@...>
 

If you look at the proposals, no-one, as far as I know, is saying there
won't be a regular census with questions for all and sundry. What they
want to do is over and above the usual. After the regular forms are
returned (or perhaps at the same time) there would be a (if you will
pardon the expression) blitz of selected areas, with real live
enumerators going door to door and making return visits if nobody is
home the first time. Then, based on the difference in response between
the mail-in forms for the area and the in-person interviews, they would
adjust the population figures.

So, I don't think our children will have anything to worry about, as far
as seeing our names in the files.

To all Jewishgenners who answered my inquiry about state censuses.
Thank you for your time and effort.
It looks like we as a group represent a walking encyclopedia. The knowledge of

Hi,
I'm looking for members of the Roodveldt family.
Most of them lived (and still live) in Amsterdam (Netherlands)
But during WW II a lot of them died in concentration camps in Germany, Poland
etc.

Perhaps some members emigrated to Israel, South America or so.

Thanks in advance,

Found Thanks to JewGen! Relative of HYMAN, Chicago 1900s #general

Gabor Zsolnay <gmz262@...>
 

Only JewishGen could make possible the success I had this week. Last Monday I
posted information about a mausoleum >from 1927 vandalized in a Chicago
cemetery last October. The article stated that the cemetery president had
not known of any relatives of the family interred there, but he and others
held a kadish service for the restored mausoleum last Sunday.

I posted to JewishGen the names of the surviving children of one of the
deceased >from a 1927 obit I found on microfilm. A JGenner >from Israel
answered the post acknowledging that she was related to the family through
marriage and had not known of the whereabouts of the burials. I am putting
her in touch with the rabbi who conducted the service and the cemetery
president. All are thankful to have connected back with the family in the
mausoleum.

I feel good about making the inquiry and the subsequent match with family
halfway around the world!

Sincerely,
Carol Adler Zsolnay

Re: BONEM #general

<< This is a very rare name -- German-Jewish family >from the Mosel region. I
have
about five branches traced back to 1770s in the Mosel Valley.
Julia BONEM, New York, NY >>

The name Bonjorn stems >from the 11th century in Spain and Provence as a kinnuy
for YomTov; Bonjorn is a cognate of a more recent French kinnuy, Bondis.

Bonjorn became variously Bonnet, Bonne' , Baernet, Bernet, Baneth, Paneth,
My family roots have been traced back to one Hirsch [Baernet?], b ca 1620, who
raised a family in Frensdorf (nr Bamberg, Upper Franconia), and eventually
populated Bamberg and the villages around it with his offspring. One branch,
descendants of Goetz Bernet, came to the USA around 1850 and used the name
Barnet. Many of the American offspring (not including Bill<g>) susequently
were given the first name Gates.

The YomTov's were prominent in the Rhine/Moselle region in the 12th century
and spread to England and Bohemia (Baneth, Paneth).

You may be related to this family especially if there are Levites in the
family, or those bearing the Hebrew name YomTov (or its sound-alike variants).
I'd be glad to hear >from anyone who bears the above names or variants, or has
further knowledge.

You may also wish to look into the family of Rabbi Hayyim Isaac Bunin (aka
Bunim), 1875-1943 in Poland; the name looks similar enough.
