gimnazjum."

Isabel,

Names listed on the photograph's verso do not appear as being Jewish.
Since your Dad went to study medicine he had to attend high school with the
natural science major.

In Warsaw in the late 20ies were eight (8) prestigious male Government
Gimnazjum.
You can eliminate >from the list five schools with the humanistic studies
(humanities) profiles.
Thus left only three schools left for a consideration (those top schools
were identified by the patrons names):

Stefan Batory Gymnasium located on 6 Mysliwiecka Street
Tadeusz Czacki Gymnasium located on 21 Kapucynska Street
Tadeusz Rejtan Gymnasium located on 4 Ksiazece Street. Rejtan school has
actually combined all profiles (humanistic and math/science)

In addition, to the Government Gimnazjum, Warsaw also had city Gimanzjums,
identified by the street locations.
And again, >from five city Gmnazjum, three humanistic types can be
eliminated thus two will be on your list:

2 Mlynarska Street Gymnazjum
18, 3 Maja Street Gymnazjum

I should also mention that there also were 25 male privately own male
Gymnazjums, including Jewish Chinuch and Laor.

Hope this help

JewishGen Offers Writing Short Reports in November #usa

Nancy Holden
 

Writing Short Reports November 4-November 27

JewishGen will again offer a class in publishing your research. This
class concentrates on short reports. Time to get your data out of
the shoebox and arrange it in a summary report? A quick, short report
is great to send to relatives or other researchers and to remind you
just where your last project left off.

In this class we will practice writing 3 styles of reports: a list
style, a lineage style report and a longer Genealogical Summary Report.
The instructor will offer directions for using your genealogical
software "publishing features," organizing your files and folders,
citing your sources and making decisions about media snips and images.

Requirements: Students must have done enough research to be ready to
write. Students should have access to a genealogical software program.

Students must have 8-10 hours per week to study the assignments, write
their reports and interact with the instructor. To meet the needs of
international students this course is open 24/7.

Tuition is $125 for this 3 week class and includes editing suggestions
upon request. Enrollment is limited to 10 students.

If you have questions, I will be glad to review your project before you
enroll.

ABRAMOWITZ to BRAM - Boston #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

Many years ago my mother told me that her grandfather's brother, David
ABRAMOWITZ may have changed his family name >from ABRAMOWITZ to BRAM.
David moved as a youth to Boston >from New Haven, Ct. around the turn of
the previous century or at the end of the 19th.

He came with his widowed mother >from Russia, (my estimate) between
1875-1885. He was the eldest of 4 children. He found a job in a dept.
store and he seems to have risen to management level. He may have been
close to his sister Sarah who lived in NYC. She and David did not stay
religious while their two younger brothers, Mayer and Kalman did.

If any of the above sound familiar to you please contact me directly.
