German Fraktur characters #general

Even though it is only mildly relevant to genealogy I would
appreciate it if the moderators could let the following comment through,
because of its present-day effects:
I can confirm that the old type of German script was abolished by
explicit orders of the Reichsministry of Culture on Sept 1, 1941, the
day on which all German newspapers changed their typeface.
One of the reasons is said to have been that one early type of
Fraktur, the so-called Schabacher-Fraktur, to the Nazis looked similar
to the Hebrew letters and that is while they wanted to have it
changed. Another reason though was that the people in the occupied
countries could not read the German orders on posters in that
script.
The paradox is that TODAY people outside and inside the
German-speaking countrie associate this script with the Nazis whereas
in reality they banned it. In reality Fraktur i.e. "broken
characters" have absolutely nothing to do with the Nazis, so do not
worry about them in genealogical documents.
Thanks for bringing it up, I had exactly the same argument with The
New Yorker in March where the same false information had been
printed.
Thanks,
Fritz Neubauer

the Bronx #general

Memories.....
I lived at 55 E. 174tth Street until 1953/4. (The Cross Bx Expway's
projectedconstruction prompted the movae to Riverdale when I was in 6th
grade.)

Went to PS 70, which was the only Bx elementary school with a pool.
Then, after the move, I attended PS 24 for 6th grade, then PS 7 for
junior high, then on to the Bronx HS of Science, class of '59. Hunter
College in the Bronx for undergraduate work, then Hunter downtown for
grad school.

I remember Nathan's....and Loews Paradise Movie theatre. And walking
the gauntlet >from the bus stop in front of deWitt Clinton HS to Science's
campus. (The new building opened my senior year)

Any other Riverdalians, Sciencites, or Hunterites out there?

Currently, we are in exile in Chicago!

Los Angeles genealogy seminar photos #general

SAbramsCPA@...
 

The seminar committee and JGSLA wishes to obtain copies of photos that were
taken at the July genealogy seminar in Los Angeles. We are looking for photos
of any events, registrants, people, speakers, computer room, reference book
room, banquet, Theodore Bikel, centerpieces, etc. If you have extra copies
please mail them to JGSLA, P.O. Box 55443, Sherman Oaks, CA 91413.

If you do not have extra copies we will reimburse you if you would make extras
and send them to us.

We found in an attempt to do pre-seminar publicity most publications desire a
photo of a speaker etc. Therefore these photos can be used in future seminars
desire for publicity.

Any questions please e mail at sabramscpa@aol.com

Tarnow Shtetl CO-OP Announcement #general

Howard J. Fink <how@...>
 

Jewish Record Indexing (JRI)-Poland has great news for those who are
researching family >from Tarnow! The first submission of data from
records
transcribed by volunteers at the Goldman Center in Israel (Dorot) has
been
entered and made available online through the JRI-PL website.

This first submission to the JRI-PL online database covers the Birth
records >from mid 1863 through the end of 1870, and includes over 3000
records, which are the entire contents of LDS film #0948421. Since this
is
a group of records for which there is NO index, all of the data was
entered. The database contains the COMPLETE extract for each individual.

Because there is no index, the only other way to currently find this
information is by examining each record on the film, written in old
script.

The fields in these records include: names of child, parents, midwife,
witness, gender, date and post number of registration (AKT) and remarks.

The remarks, many of which were added later (some as late as the 1930's)

include such things as place of birth outside of Tarnow, date of death,
name changes, adoptive parents, religious conversions, and in some cases

Polish Archive reference numbers. When searching through the JRI-PL
website
you will be rewarded with matches on surnames in the midwife, witness
and
remarks fields in addition to matches on the child's surname; this is an

incredible tool!

As always, these entries should be used as references, which you should
verify on your own, as some errors may have crept in during
transcription
and data entry.

Thanks to the Goldman Center and all of the Tarnow Shtetl volunteers who

performed data entry for this database: Judy Deutchman, David Itzkowic,
Pat
Jortner, Calvin & Barbara Kitay, Henry Kornhauser, Shimon Neubort, Phil
Rose, Yaakov Schmidt, Len Schneider, Glen Strauss and Michael Trapunsky.

Extra thanks are due to Shmuel Kehati who not only performed entry of
several sections, but also secured many additional extracts >from the
Goldman Center that will keep us busy for quite some time. Anyone who
would
like to help with these efforts please email me at the address below. We

now have similar records to be entered covering Births, Deaths and
Marriages >from earlier dates in the 1800's.

identical to the Internet version.

Most libraries have microfiche readers so there is no need to
purchase one. There actually is an advantage to the hard-copy

Joseph (1876-1944) m. Rose SAFIER
David m. Dora SAFIER

Eric Adler <ea7398@...>
 

I am looking for *any* information on two shtetls near Tarnow. One is
Zbylitowska Gora, 3.7 miles southwest of Tarnow, and the other is
Rzdedzin, 3 miles east of Tarnow.

I am researching ancestors named ADLER and KREPS >from Zbylitowska Gora
and ancestors named BAUM and MILLER >from Rzdedzin.

Thanks!

Surname of CHRISTIAN #general

Harold Pollins <pollins@...>
 

Many thanks for this interesting and useful suggestion. I can understand
how a woman might be Christina, as you show, and being called Tina the
possibly Christian aspect would presumably be ignored or forgotten. But
I'm still left with men named Christian whether as forename or surname.
That
is more blatant and open and, apart >from the forename being shortened to
Chris, not easily concealed if one wished to do so.

But I'm grateful to you for your interest.
