This is in regard to Paul Silverstone's message.
If anyone has any suggestions please post it to the group.
I too am searcing for someone who died in Chicago in 1922 and have about
exausted my sources. I have called several funeral homes. I have
e-mailed the archives that send free death certificates between 1919 and
1945 (they can't locate it) I have sent letters to several hospital
medical records. All to no avail. This is for my great grandfather,
Shimshon Matenky, buried in Waldheim. They have no records for him.

Asylum, Jews in Japan? re: Jews under Japanese Reign #general

fej@...
 

I beg to differ with the asylum issue. My grandparents
escaped occupied Holland and Belgium, and
were gathered into work camps by the Japanese. My
mother was born in the camp. This was in 1941-42

Last year, the Queen of Holland requested compensation
from the Japanese, and the result was of no avail.

I have just learned that my grandfather was buried in Mt. Zion in
a section called Father and Son or International Labor Protective
ssociation of Brooklyn. Since he arrived in the USA >from Bobruisk
in 1904 and died in 1907, does anyone in this group have any idea
about these associations?

Thank you.

Outstanding Speakers for SLC conference #general

Howard Margol
 

Exciting news >from Howard Margol, President, IAJGS:

The response to our Call for Papers (deadline December 31, 1999),
has been outstanding. Sallyann Amdur Sack, conference co-chair for
programming, received many more proposals than we can use. She and her
committee will be busy making final selections in the next several
weeks. Already known, however, are the following outstanding
speakers >from the LDS Family History Library.

David E. Rencher, Director of Library Services, will deliver the
keynote speech at the opening session of the conference on Sunday
night. As head of the Family History Library and overseer of all the
Family History Centers throughout the world, he will offer us insight
into innovations we can expect >from the library system in the new
millennium. Mr. Rencher also is president of the Federation of
Genealogical Societies, the umbrella group of genealogical societies
in the United States.

Wayne Metcalf, Director of Acquisition and Field Service Division, will
give a lecture surveying the current state of Jewish record acquisition
and also will describe the process of deciding how, where, and what to
microfilm.

Tom Edlund, Senior Librarian for Slavic Bibliography, will discuss the
1897 All-Empire Russian Census, samples of which have been microfilmed.
In addition, he will conduct workshop classes on how to read/understand
microfilmed Russian vital records and documents, Polish vital records,
and German vital records located in the Family History Library.

Daniel Schlyter, Collection Development Specialist whose focus includes
Central and Eastern Europe, has been a regular speaker at Jewish
genealogical conferences for several years. He will conduct a class on
reading Hungarian vital statistics records (Dan doesn't even read
Hungarian!). In addition, he will give a talk about the how and where
Jewish vital records were kept in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, key to
knowing where to look for ancestral records >from this area.

Kahlile Mehr, Collection Development Specialist for the countries of
the Former Soviet Union, has written often for AVOTAYNU. He is the
person who surveys what the Library has for the countries that comprise
the territory that was the USSR, finds out what is available and makes
recommendations for what should be microfilmed. He will talk about this
process with respect to Jewish records.

Jayare Roberts, a Senior Consultant for the Family History Department,
has been closely associated with the project to computerize the Ellis
Island passenger arrival records. He will report on the state of that
project and also the state of the FHL project to microfilm vital
records all over the United States.

Judith Eccles Wight, A.G., an accredited genealogist specializing in
Ireland, Scotland and Australian research, has been a professional
genealogist for more than 30 years, has worked as a FHL British
Reference Consultant since 1990, and was leader of the team that
wrote the Family History Library Jewish Research Outline. She will
speak on "A Generic Approach to Tracing Jews in the British Reference
Area" (which includes Australia and New Zealand as well as the
countries of the United Kingdom).

Cashinoff = Kishinev? #general

Dear Genners:

I was fortunate recently to obtain the 1903 birth certificate of my great
aunt Rose KOVISHANSKY. Both of her parents are shown as being born in
Cashinoff, Russia. Does anyone know if this is the same place as Kishinev?

Thank you for any insight you can provide.

provide the answer. Just input the Civil (Gregorian) date and the result
will tell you the day of the week as well as the corresponding Jewish

Image Before My Eyes/ Video #belarus

Bill Schechter <bschech@...>
 

Thank you Judith Kunofsky for clearing up the confusion about the "Image
Before Eyes" book and supplying the publication data. Did I really make
the Roman Vishniac connection to this book? Oh well. There is a later
book by Vishniac (apart >from the book "Polish Jews/ A Pictorial Record"
which I cited earlier) which has still not come up in this conversation
and I hope someone knows of it.

Let me dispel any and all confusion about the videotape, which I have in
my possession. It was directed by Josh Waletsky, and produced by him and
Susan Lazarus. It was funded by the NEH and is "A Yivo Institute for
Jewish Research Presentation." It was distributed by the Axon Video Co.,
1900 Boradway, NY, NY, 10023. The company catalogue number is AVC#0925.
The date on the tape is 1980. The film is 90 minutes long.
