How to manage your subscriptions #hungary

Margarita <uzidog@...>
 

Dear H-siggers,

I hope everyone sees this (I already post something like this last Friday).

In JewishGen there is a page that tells you how to manage your subscriptions.
And it works because I did it.

Go to:

http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen/DiscussionGroup.htm#Managing

The only thing you will have to do is, replace the word "jewishgen" to H-sig.

Just a reminder: If you decide to get the digest, PLEASE, be so kind as to
change the Subject line.

Good luck!

Chlavna #general

BREST FAMILY <angi@...>
 

Dear Jewishgenners,

In my researching of LAPIDUS families, I have very often found the name
Chlavna, Chlavina and Chlawne listed as a First name. In my own Branch I
have about five CHLAVNA'S and in many other unrelated (so far) LAPIDUS
branches there are also many Chlavna's. Has anyone ever heard of this
First Name before and if so, can they tell me where it originates from.

Best wishes,

How did Affidavits for Visas work? #general

Frank, Werner <Werner_Frank@...>
 

Can someone explain how Affidavits and Visas were obtained and
processed, and how does one get a copy >from the 1930s period?

In the 1930s Jews wishing to immigrate to the USA needed a Visa,
obtainable >from a nearby US Consulate. (In my case it was Stuttgart,
Germany). In order for a VISA to be issued, assuming a quota is met,
one first had to have an Affidavit(s) >from US residents (citizens?) who
would vouchsafe the individual so that he would not become a financial
burden on society. Thus, relatives, friends and sometimes strangers
were beseeched for such Affidavits. In order to generate an Affidavit,
what did the sponsoring individual then do?

My questions are:

1. What did an Affidavit form look like? Where can one see such a
form?

2. Who filled out the Affidavit and where was it sent? Who approved
the Affidavit?

3. How did the Affidavit and Visa application come together for
subsequent processing?

4. Where and how can one obtain copies of these documents, Affidavit
and Visa, today?

Thank you for any comments.

Book: Bridging Two Worlds #general

Eguralnick@...
 

Does anyone have a copy of BRIDGING TWO WORLDS by Sol Landau? It is about
Rabbi Ezekiel Landau 1888-1965, and I saw it mentioned in a very old post in
the discussion group archives. I am researching Rabbi Eleazar FLECKELES of
Prague, one of Rabbi Landau's students, and am wondering if there is any
mention of Rabbi Fleckeles in that book.

Thank you,

Death Certificate from Israel #general

Adelle Gloger
 

Hi, all,
Around 1955 my maternal grandmother fulfilled her life-long dream to go to
Eretz Yisroel and "shtarb". She did indeed die there in July 1958 at the age of
85 years. I have in my posession a document entitled " Report of the death of
an American Citizen" >from the Department of State, Foreign Service of The
United States of America.
She died in Tel Aviv and is buried there. This document lists the
Registration of Death number___ "issued by the Israeli Ministry of Interior at
Tel Aviv"

My question is this: What is the address in Israel to contact to get a copy
of the actual death certificate?

I have looked in the JewishGen info files and could not find the
information. Also, none of the online telephone directories are in English.

Thanks in advance for your assistance,
