I haven't tried to use this site, but it appears to be an interesting
concept. According to the directions, it may take a week or two, but you
can hear how the Polish phrase, town, etc. is actually pronounced. You can
even decide whether you want the voice to be male or female.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Shanghai - Othel Rachel Synagogue #general

Debbie Raff <seraff@...>
 

I just read an article in our Jewish Community News about the restoration
of the Othel Rachel Synagogue in Shanghai. According to the article,
interior can never be completely restored until those in charge of
the
work know exactly what it looked like.
There are no official interior photographs. It is hoped that
for the
few years between the end of WWII and 1949, when all the members of the
synagogue were forced to leave Shanghai, some services were held during
which the no photos rule MAY not have been enforced
The article gives the name, address, and phone number of someone >from the
Pasadena Jewish Temple in CA. I have no other knowledge of this, other than
what I read in the article. If, perchance, you have or know someone who has
interior photos of this synagogue, e-mail me privately and I'll send you
the information on the contact person.

Alice Faye Yezarski <ayezarski@...>
 

YEZARSKY>Vilnius, Lithuania>West Hazelton, PA, USA 1890
DROBNUS>Vilnius, Lithuania>West Hazelton, PA, USA 1890

I am trying to find out if my husband's paternal grandparents listed above
have Jewish related names. In reading articles posted at this web site,
"Ha Magid- 1871-1872," and "Ha Melitz 1893-1903" donors >from Lithuania
I found the name YEZERSKI listed as a donor in both articles.

I have had difficulty in finding the surname YEZARSKY posted in any data
bases in the past. I am confident the spelling changed when my husband's
grandparents came to America, and have been unable to find out the
origin of the name or the original spelling.

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated!

We received the German birth certificates of a few children of one family
which all have added information at the bottom about their deaths. The
details include exact date, the suburb in Sydney, and the Australian death
certificate reference number. It looks like there could be some sort of
agreement between Australia Germany to advise the their registry on the
death of any of its previous citizens.

One example -
born in Zulpich in 1901,
migrated to Australia in 1937,
naturalized in 1944,
died in 1979 - shows suburb, country, date, and ref no.

Has anyone else come across this? It could be related to a pension
agreement between Australia and Germany. And what paper trail did they
follow to match one reference against another, 80 years later and countries
apart.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen queries on names and nonsense, etc #general

haim harutz <yairharu@...>
 

Finally someone has written a letter more clearly and succintly than I
myself could have done and has, for the most part, raised a problem which I
have raised in the past but much lesss clearly. Mr David Snyder, I thank
you very much for your posting on Jewish names and their "origins". I can
only hope that this has some beneficial effect on people who post queries
(sometimes previously frequently answered) on the "meanings" of names in
other languages. I must admit that I myself, unfortunately, on occasion,
fall into Mr Snyder's second category, (i.e., those who wish to prove their
own erudition, justified or not, rather than give direct answers to too
frequently asked questions). I gladly take note of your comments, and hope
that others of my ilk (of whom there are many, unfortunately) will also
take note.

If all these people take note of your comments and make use of the tools
existing within Jewishgen and in other places, it would save a lot of time,
space and effort within the Jewisshgen Digest for most readers, as well as
cut out a lot of wasted effort on the part of the overworked moderators
(may God bless them for their patience!).

In short, Mr Snyder, God bless you too!

All the best,
Chaim Charutz.

MODERATOR NOTE: And while He is bestowing blessings,
may many fall on your head.
