Cemetery CD/Mac help! #general

Paula Eisenstein Baker <eisenbak@...>
 

Is there a Mac user out there who can help? I've received the AJGS
CD-ROM of cemetery files, but I can't seem to make it work (I have a
Mac, and the directions are for PCs).

The announcement that Gary Mokotoff will be in Las Vegas to present a
lecture on "Tracing Your Jewish Family Roots", has elicited a tremendous
response, and we have just been advised that the Las Vegas Clark County
Library District will act as a co-sponsor of the event.

The talk will be on October 19, 1998 at 7:30 PM, and tentative plans
have been made for the program to be presented at the Sahara West
Library, 9600 West Sahara, Las Vegas. The facility there has theater
type seating and will accommodate 200 people.

We will advise everyone of the final details as soon as they are worked
out.

Re: SIMON/ZALMAN #general

Robert Israel <israel@...>
 

My ggrandfather was Solomon SIMON, he came to the US in the late 1800's
but I also have the name Shlomo ZALMAN for him, does anyone know if this
is a full name or two first names or what they mean??
Shlomo Zalman is a very common first+middle name combination.
The first name is Hebrew, and the second is a Yiddish/German translation
of it (both referring to "Solomon" in this case).

As a Juno user (and it has it's limits), when there is something I know I
would like to refer to (perhaps months >from now) I go to REPLY, highlight
the lines to be deleted, trim the text down to the essentials and print
it using LANDSCAPE mode. I usually can get two messages on a single
sheet. Then into the appropriate file. Won't work for everyone, but
works for me.

40 killed after the war in Warsaw #general

David Price <David_Price@...>
 

I suppose this is not related to genealogy but does someone have a list of
the 40 or so people murdered in 1946 when they came back to Warsaw to see
if any family survived?

Searching other cities #belarus

dardasht@...
 

Inez:
I guess what it means is that do not limit yourself only to
available GOMEL records, but check the available records, indexes
(indices?) for the other cities as well.
For instance, we were looking for VYSKOTSKY in Bobruisk, where we
knew my ggf's brother had married (coming >from Mogilev). Haven't been
able to find any VYSKOTSKY in Bobruisk (yet), but Vitaly Charny has found
one in Minsk! It is enough of a rare name to make us investigate.
Our Mogilev TALALAY also had a branch in Baranovich as well, so
they were really spreading out pre-1941.
While I didn't find any MUREINIK in Mogilev, I did find several
MIREINA (Leiba, Evel, Leiba,), a MOREINA (Shloma-Gilel) in the Mogilev
Birth Index. Perhaps some alternate spellings to help in checking other
records.
Good luck. It is probably not overkill to repeat that when
checking old records one must be flexible in spelling. At different
times, with different people doing the recording, with whims and
fashions, etc. different forms of names are recorded for the same person
(both family and given names). Sometimes only one form of a first name is
given, other times the patrynomic is given, sometimes the nickname is
recorded. Be flexible!

Schelly suggested that "people looking in Gomel [should] try Mogilev and
Bobruisk, as well as ... Orsha, Shlov and Vitebsk."
Schelly, could you please tell us how to do this.
