Boston Jewish Advocate #general

I will be in the Boston area in early May and would like to do the research for
the following:

Can some one tell me where I can get to research the Boston Jewish Advocate
wedding announcements.

I am researching William SWART, and I see that there is a date of 6/18/1915 as the
wedding announcement.

Another question, is that the date of the wedding or the date that it was listed
in the Advocate? Above the date it says Issue Date.

Thanks to everyone for any information that you can give me.

Hi Bea -

The following site has a list of all the Boston newspapers on microfilm at the
Boston Public library.

http://www.bpl.org/research/microtext/BostonNewspapers.pdf

The Jewish Advocate was a weekly paper - the films start in 1905.

You might want to take a look at the the library's website to check on their hours
and availability of the films before you go.

Alan,
I went to this website and could not find the link to marriage
Announcements. I am looking for several in Boston in the 1920s
And 1930s. Any help is greatly appreciated.

As far as I could tell, one seems to need a subscription to view the
items at
the Boston Jewish Advocate web pages, but after I answered the
original question >from Bea Swart , I received the following message
that an index to the obituaries and wedding announcements >from the
Boston Jewish Advocate are located on line -

The marriages and deaths are on line and can be easily searched<<
I looked again, and found the following databases at the
Jewishgen web pages -

The wedding announcements index
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/advocatew.htm

and the obituaries index here
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/advocate.htm

I think the original message was asking where the newspaper
itself might be viewed as she seemed to have the data >from the
index already. The films are located at the Boston Public library for
sure, and maybe other places as well.

Hope this helps,
Lisa

Lisa, and everyone,

I already sent this information to Bea privately, but since it's still a
topic, I thought I post some of what I sent to her for everyone's benefit.

The links to the wedding and obituary databases are correct.

The prefaces to the lists say this:

".... To view the actual wedding announcements which this database indexes,
consult back issues of the Jewish Advocate on microfilm. Microfilms of the
back issues (110+ reels) are available at several libraries,
including: Boston Public Library (Boston, MA): [AN2.M4J4]; Hebrew College
Library (Brookline, MA); Lamont Library, Harvard University (Cambridge,
MA): [Film NC 497]; Goldfarb Library, Brandeis University (Waltham, MA):
[AJHS Depository]; New York Public Library (New York, NY):
[*ZAN-*P41]; Library of Congress (Washington, DC): [96/4713]. "

Salient points:
--both indexes cover 1905 through Jan 2004
--index includes full names of bride & groom, or decedant, and *date of
issue* of the paper (nb: *not* the marriage or death date) [for example, the
announcement of my partner's parents marriage actually appeared 4 months
after the actual wedding date]--this, of course, gives you the correct
issue of the paper so you can go find the announcement, which will give you
the actual wedding or death date
--the obituary index is particularly valuable, since surnames of related
family members are listed, if that information was part of the published
announcement; both give town/city information, if known
--note in particular that, in addition to the local libraries, the films
are also at the New York Public Library and at the Library of Congress in
Washington, DC

Since I will be at the Boston Public Library researching some of my own
family marriages and obituaries either this weekend or at the latest next
weekend, I am offering to find the information of announcements for folks
on this list and send them to you by email, subject to the following
conditions:

(1) Please, no more than three (3) requests per requester.
(2) For each marriage or obituary, I need you to send me the *full names as
found in the index* and the *issue date* as found in the index.

*Please* respond privately.
