How make out check to Kaunas Archive? #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

I read the very informative LitvakSIG FAQ, but it's still not clear to me
how to make out my check to the Kaunas Archive. Do I write it out to "Kauno
Apygardos Archyvas" or "Kaunas Archives" or something else?
Either way will work. However, it is best to make the check out to Kauno
Apygardos Archyvas.

Names of Kagan and Cohen from the All Lithuania Database #lithuania

Sorry to pick on you Howard, but a number of people seem to have made
the same mistake. My question does not relate to *researching of record
names* but two - what must be books in the All Lithuania Database. The
All Lithuania database has a field with lists its *source* of various
names. That is, somebody (presumably on this list, since I would have
thought that all the data submitters and enterers to the All Lithuania
Database would have been on this list) - has submitted these names and
given their Source as, in one case, Kagan, and in another case, Cohen.
Nowhere on the database, that I could find, however, was more detail
given about these documents, although lots of other documents were
described as being sources for the names. I think Saul Isseroff must be
right when he identifies Kagan as the book he named - especially as
somebody checked for me and the right names are on the right pages.

Cohen has to be a different book, a) the pages are different and b)
whoever it was who submitted the names clearly thought this book was by
somebody different. My *best* guess at the book is that it is "Koreh
shehayehudim be Shavli" by S Cohen, Kovno 1938. On the other hand, I
only know of this title by a handwritten (and difficult to read) note at
the top of one of the Luntz family trees I have collected (in fact one
faxed to me by Saul Isseroff). I am assuming that since this is a
different book >from Kagan, that it deals with Luntzs (alhough to what
extent I do not know), it matches the "Cohen" mentioned in the All
Lithuania Database. On the other hand, I have no way of being sure,
except to track down whoever it was who entered the data into the All

Re: Status of Minsk Records, particularly Vitebsk #belarus

Dear Howard:

I have a GREAT interest in getting records for Vitebsk. I was a little
confused about your message. Are there absolutely no birth, marriage, and
death records? If so it is very discouraging news.

In the books that you mentioned what kind of information is available? Is it
worth while to search these other books?

Sorry for all of the questions, but I am very anxious to obtain any records
that are available.

If there is any other pertinent information available please let me know.

there was a series of books that consist of family lists and

there are 88 books in the series and they contain

My apologies to all for the two messages for training purposes only that

I set the list to be "moderated" but apparently the change didn't hold.
Lou Schonfeld will be starting his training this morning on how to moderate
a mailing list and I wanted to be sure there were some messages on which
he could practice editing!

So, the first lesson is...make certain the @@%^&**(_*&^%
