Mendele Personal Notices & Announcements

April 24, 2012

To minimize wear and tear on the untershames, three requests:

1. Send time-sensitive notices well in advance.
2. Send material as plain text:  no HTML, other coding, or attachments;and 
write MENDELE PERSONALS in the subject line.
3. Correspond directly with the person who or organization which has 
posted the notice,
*not* with your ever-beleaguered untershames.

Subject: Copies of  Beys Yankev Zhurnal, Ortodoksishe Yugent-bleter, 

Tayere Mendelyaner,

I am doing a project on Salomo Birnbaum, a Yiddish linguist of note and 
the son of Nathan Birnbaum, and am looking for some of his published works 
in Yiddish. Many of these works appeared in the Beys Yankev Zhurnal in the 
20s and 30s, but, so far as I can tell, the only public institution in the 
New York area which has copies of those issues is the Agudath Israel of 
America Archives, and their microfilm machine is currently not working 
properly. Does anyone know of other New York-area libraries/archives that 
might have these journals? The same, incidentally, goes for the 1931 
issues of the Ortodoksishe Yugent-bleter and of the journal Kinder-gorten. 
I would very much appreciate any pointers you could give me .

A dank in foroys,

Shaul Seidler-Feller, Yeshiva University
