JGS-Greater Miami, INC. Special Workshop January 3, 2003 #general

Joan Parker <housemom@...>
 

Dear Genners:

Four more days until December 20th which is the deadline for members and
guests to save money using the early pre-pay of the registration fee for
our Workshop on January 3rd at the Greater Miami Jewish Federation
Building, 4200 Biscayne Blvd. Registration, coffee and donuts at 9:15am.
Workshop is 10:00am to 1:00pm.

This Workshop is unique in that it is geared to only two subjects: Barbara
Musikar is devoting her time and expertise to using and getting all the
benefits >from JewishGen. There are so many new databases, SIGs, and
research areas that are being underused because we're not aware of these
new segments.

Phillip Goldmann our in-house Family Tree Maker guru and creator of making
beautiful family trees will give an in-depth presentation of how to create
the trees. Using overheads Phil will show us how to prepare the
preliminary steps using family group sheets and family maps. These will
guide us to making a tree that can become a family heirloom.

There will be questions and answers after each presentation. Every
attendee will receive a syllabus.

EARLY Members $10 at door $15
EARLY Non-Members $20 at door $25
EARLY Combined New Member and Workshop $30 at door $40

Please mail check payable to JGS of Greater Miami, Inc. specifying Member
or Non-Member and mail to
JGS WORKSHOP
PO Box 560432
Miami, FL 33156-0432

Please plan to attend. This Workshop is part of our continuing education

MALLIN family of Philadelphia #general

Jenny Schwartzberg
 

Dear Genners,
After my success with the GABRIEL family, I am hoping I will be lucky
again with this inquiry.
My great-great-aunt Mary KANTOROWITZ (COHEN) b. ca. 1882 married Zedel
(William) MALLIN ca. 1911.
They had: Albert MALLIN b. 7 Apr. 1912 d. Oct. 1977 Philadelphia, PA
m. Lillian and had three children
Aaron William MALLIN b. 16 Oct. 1913 d. June 1976
m. Sylvia WEISS 26 Jan. 1939
William S. MALLIN
Eugene S. MALLIN
I was fortunate to find that cousin Aaron was in Who's Who in the East
(1974? edition), which told me he was a prominent neurologist and
psychiatrist in Philadelphia and taught at the University of Pennsylvania
Medical School and was on staff at various hospitals in Philly. It gave
me his wife and children's names. But now I am stumped. How do I find
the children? I assume they are in their 60's now and with children and
grandchildren of their own.... I have checked ussearch.com and
anybirthday.com and whitepages.com but there are a lot of MALLINs in
Pennsylvania and none seem to fit. There appears to be a Eugene MALLIN in
San Diego, but no address listed for him and it might not be the right
person...
Do any of you remember this family or can you point me in the right
direction for further searching? To my frustration I can't even find them
on the 1910, 1920, or 1930 censuses for Philadelphia so they may have been
using a different spelling at that point. Aaaaagh.
Please help.
Yours, Jenny Schwartzberg

Re: ATT email problem #germany

corys@...
 

I have been in touch with ATT Worldnet about this problem.

After quite a run-around, they say they are experiencing "server problems"
(unspecified) which are causing messages >from list servers to be rejected.

They claim to be working on fixing the problem. I am receiving JewishGen
list mail sporadically, including some (but not all) >from GerSig.

Cory Streisinger corys@worldnet.att.net

MOD NOTE: Again I suggest that GerSig subscribers in the worldnet.att.net
domain subscribe to GerSig >from another email account until this problem
is resolved. This will insure that you receive the Forum mail and also
prevent your subscriptions >from being terminated by our listserver for
excessive bounced email. MOD1

Re: Adding to the Jewish Gen Family Tree #general

sallybru <sallybru@...>
 

Some genealogy programs allow you to mark notes 'general audiences' or
'private' so that would make your job easy.

However, you can add what you want to the FTJP- make a copy of your data
files in another directory and remove whatever information you don't want
to reveal >from that copy. Then make the gedcom file >from that. Just
remember which directory is you 'complete' copy and which is the edited
one. I recommend deleting the edited one after making the gedcom file
unless you have some other use for it. Then you won't get confused
between the 2 copies.

Or, you can make a gedcom file and modify it in a word processing program
like MS Notepad-be sure to use one that will not add codes to the text; you
can't use Word for this! Also, don't delete whole lines or people this
way; it will mess up the organization of the file. You can do this to
eliminate a note which is sensitive for example-but notes usually do not
show up in FTJP anyway-this is something which you might do if you were
sending information to someone else. Information about living people does
not show up-other than names. Anyone less than 100 years old (I believe)
who does not have a death date is considered living.

Check out some entries in FTJP, and you will see that there isn't a great
deal of information which is published about any one person.

from the "Pakn Treger" #general

Debbie Raff
 

The fall issue of the "Pakn Treger" (magazine of the National Yiddish Book
Center) has an article titled "Words like Arrows" by Shirley Kumove

One Yiddish phrase seemed very appropriate for those researching family
trees.

"Der vos barimt zikh mit zayn yikhes iz glaykh tsu a bulbe - dos beste teyl
ligt in dr'erd."
(translation)" He who boasts of his ancestry is comparable to a potato - the
best part lies underground" ;-)

"The Family Gomperz" #general

Elsebeth Paikin
 

To those with interest in the families:
Gompers, Gomperz, Gomperts, Gompertz
and also the name Emmerich


"Die Familie Gomperz"
by Kaufmann, David & Max Freudenthal
Frankfurt/Main 1907.


The above is listed on Scandinavis SIG's website under
Denmark - bibliography, and many (who have obviously
changed their e-mail addresses) have written to me and
asked about information about how to get hold of a copy.

I therefore take the liberty of drawing the attention to
the English translation: "The Family Gomperz" which is being
published (presumably ready in February 2003). Non-Profit.
Pre-publication price of 30 Pounds (postage etc free within the UK).
After publication, the price rises to 35 Pounds.


Included with the book is a CDrom containing the details of
the family tree (compiled by Ernest Gompers), >from Reb Mordechai
Gumpel (born about 1520 in Emmerich) down to the year 1945.
These are recorded in a GedCom file that can be read into most
of the commonly used genealogy programs.

For further information mailto:"Bastien Gomperts" <b.gomperts@ucl.ac.uk>
