Subject: One day seminar at the Museum of the Diaspora in Tel Aviv #scandinavia

Martha LEV-ZION <martha@...>
 

We at the Israel Genealogical Society [IGS] are fairly bursting our
buttons with pride in the one day seminar [Yom Iyun] that we have
arranged for the 28th of November 2005 at Beit Hatefutzot [the
Diaspora Museum] on the Tel Aviv University campus. If you could have
one genealogical wish, wouldn't it be that you could find that
illusive document that would allow you to prove once and for all that
a tie that binds was true? We at the IGS have been feverishly working
for over a year to arrange just such a seminar that would allow you
to find the missing key.

Without fear of contradiction, I can categorically state that every
Jewish family in the world has family - known or unknown - in
Israel. Our seminar, "Family Roots in the Land of Israel and in the
World," will demonstrate what I mean. We have invited archivists >from
the smaller, but sometimes more interesting archives, to address us
with talks on their holdings. When we invited proposals, even we
didn't know details of all the treasures these archives hold, but
after reading the abstracts and talking with the archivists, it is
hard not to jump up and down with enthusiasm!

Go to our website's direct seminar access:

http://www.isragen.org.il/NROS/YY2005/

There you can get .pdf files in Hebrew and/or in English of the
program, the abstracts and the biographies of the speakers. See for
yourself what an incredible program we have arranged for you! >from
our opening keynote speaker on Eastern European Aliyah >from the late
1800's to 1920, to a detailed description of the microfilm collection
of the Diaspora Museum, at the close of the day, you will be
enthralled for the entire time.

One caveat: regretfully, places are limited due to the number of
seats available and we can only accept reservations on a first come
first serve basis. Early registration ends on 10 November, if there
are still places available. Registration includes coffee and cake and
a chance for a greatly discounted hot lunch, but here too, places are
limited. Please register early so you will not be disappointed. When
the places are gone, they are gone and that's it.

The registration form can be downloaded at

you there!

Re: GAS LIGHTING IN GALICIA IN 1890s #galicia

Stephen Denker
 

I need some historical help about Galicia to verify a family story my father
told me.

As I remember it, my father told me the story that his father Asriel Denker
went to London >from Galicia with a baby girl and his first wife. While in
England, my grandfather's first wife, being unfamiliar with the new lighting
technology, was asphyxiated when she blew out a gaslight instead of turning
the gas off. Asriel Denker, then age 28, later went to New York City
arriving July 4, 1898. The ship manifest lists him alone and as single. His daughter
did not come with my grandfather. I have searched the English online
death register database and personally, at the Family History Center in
London, for the years 1890-1899 with no success.

Recently I revisited my father's LONDON story. Perhaps it actually happened
on the Continent or in Galicia. Were gaslights becoming available in the
Galicia of my grandfather's time? Then possibly my grandfather's young wife,
being unfamiliar with them, was asphyxiated at home. That could explain how
a baby daughter might have grown up with another Galician family (we call it
a foster family) and after arriving in New York with this family later (when
my father said he thought that he had met her), she would have remained with
her foster parents.

Is a Galician hypothesis is plausible - that gas lighting was available, but
new and unfamiliar in the 1890s?
