Letter to the Stars - White Rose Day, Austria - May 5th 2006 #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

On the 5th of May 2006, 80,000 white roses were
deposited at the addresses of holocaust victims in
Austria. It was a nice thought and a gesture well-
meant. Some survivors and many grieving relatives
were also present which added to the poignancy of the
scenes. See: Blumen der Erinnerung* {there is sound
too} on "Letter to the Stars", unfortunately only in
German]: <http://www.lettertothestars.at>

Here you can see photos of the scenes. There is also
a new interactive map giving details of victims living
outside Vienna - you click on each rose to get
details.

In Vienna, there are so many victims [the bulk of the
80,000] that I have not had any luck with clicking on
a white rose to bring up any names - the enormity of
the crime has apparently beaten the designers of the
website.

Take a Look at Friday's Conference Schedule! #austria-czech

Roni Seibel Liebowitz <Roni@...>
 

Before you book that return plane ticket, or plan to hop on the train to
your summer home or to take off for the beach, please look at the
Conference's Friday morning schedule. We have some very exciting talks and
events planned that morning that you won't want to miss.

We have been blessed with over 260 presentations. Rather than keeping
everyone awake until midnight every night to attend them, we opted to
schedule a full morning of sessions on Friday, Aug. 18, >from 8:00 a.m. to
12:15 p.m.

If you're interested in Jews >from Lithuania, Ukraine, Hungary, Greece,
Transcarpathia, Scotland -- or New York...

If you'd like to gain exposure on the Internet, unearth deep dark secrets
about the criminals in your family's past, or find other "Jews in the
news"...

If you need advice on getting organized, publishing your research, or
conserving your photos and documents...

If you're searching for living relatives or trying to learn more about Shoah
victims or survivors...

If you hope to understand your "chochka" (or how a word comes to be spelled
that way)...

If you want to hear the story of a genealogist who became "suddenly
Jewish"...

...Friday has something for you. I suggest that you read about Friday's
sessions on the Conference web site

www.jgsny2006.org/conference_program.cfm

One of these programs requires some preparation. For "The Jewish Chochka and
Ephemera Road Show" (Session 408), Rafi Guber requests that registrants
bring family items, documents, photos, and ephemera to the conference. He
and a panel will help determine when and >from where the items originated and
any other secrets they may reveal about your family. Please remember to
bring along items for this exciting session.

Stay through the 18th and leave on a chai!

WESOKY (in my transliteration >from Ryssuan VYSOKY with meaning "tall")

Samokhvalovichi is Minsk suburb now. Most possibly it is one extended

Dear Researchers,

does anyone know how to Contact Naomi Sachs-Amrami in Los Angeles. She was
a subscriber on either GerSig or JRI-Poland lists and seems to have
"disappeared" She was assisting me in transcribing and translating LDS
records for Unruhstadt (Kargowa).

Any leads would be appreciated.

Thank you to all who responded. Yocheved Klausner was able to provide the
translation. A number of writers could not access the link I provided. I am
stumped by this and don't know what to say. Again let me raise the question for
JOWBR, is there a particular reason that the photographed stones cannot be
copied for viewmate or personal file purposes?
It's great to see how many tried to help so quickly, happy research all.

Ana,

A possibility to consider is that as a child you were being told that he was a
Jewish rabbi ("rabino judio" in Spanish) by someone whose native tongue was
Lithuanian.

I just want to thank Ed and also the forum (GerSIG) that brought his
message to me.

I was not aware of the cemetery database made available by the Jewish
community of Vienna <http://friedhof.ikg-wien.at/search.asp?lang=en>
It is an amazing resource. In a couple hours last night, I was able to
fill in many missing gaps in two parts of my family tree. I will do
more data mining tonight! Thanks Ed and GerSIG. Best regards,

Dear Jim,

When I go to archives and/or get database entries online for possible
fmily members and I am not sure they are related to me, I list the
rcords under each family surname by year, and put in that entry all
The information I have received on that record. Then , when I find
New information I go through that list trying to find connections.
Sometimes, I am very successful. For instance, I found I had a
Webber - Sivivolas (orig. name) in St. John and Halifax and Maine, so
I proceeded to find all the records I could at a cemetery in Halifax
And online for Cemetery records, vital records and Canadian and Maine
Censuses. Lo and behold I was able to piece together most of the
Extended family of six brothers who had come >from Lithuania in the 1890s.

Like many of us, I'm drowning in little notes, torn pieces of paper, piles
of extracted handwritten data, bulging file cabinets, etc. No way to keep
track of sources, results, etc. Sometimes I find myself re-examining
archival files that I forgot after seeing them 15-20 years ago!
"Genealogical Alzheimer's"

Let's say I plan a trip to Polish archives in, say, Poznan, Pila, Leszno,
Gdansk, Kalisz, Konin, etc to search for material on Sepolno, Lobsens,
Rawicz, Leszno, Kolo, and families LEWINSKI, DANCYGIER, ISRAELSKI,
SALOMONSOHN, WARMBRUN, ETC, ETC.

It occurred to me to make a simple Excel sortable database with columns
like: Archive; Locality; My [paper] file; Family name; Subject; LDS Film;
Date; Date done. Then jam in everything -weeks of work- and then be able to
sort by up to three priorities any combination of those columns. Then add
colors, flags, etc, for emphasis.

Then it occurred to me that surely my wheel was already invented by smarter
people than I.

So, who can suggest the best existing programs or templates, either
home-made or commercially available. I'll bet that many of you have
developed and evolved an Excel database model that really works well.
