A reminder to subscribers #scandinavia

Dear Scandinavia-Genners,

I just want to remind you that many new subscribers join
our SIG mailing list - and unfortunately only few think of
searching the SIG Lists Archive
http://data.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.dll?jg~jgsys~sigspop

That means that they will not find the message about your
research interests - unless you resend it at intervals.
I would suggest that you resend it every 5-6 months.

Best wishes

Morris Friend #general

Shelly Crane
 

Hello to all,

I ordered naturalization records on someone who was hopefully to be the
husband of my gr-gr aunt Masza LANGUS-FRAJND, originally >from Grajewo, Poland
and then on to Raczki. She stayed behind in Poland as far as we know, but he
came to the US.

The naturalization records I received are most definitely not my aunt's
husband, so if someone is related to the following person, please contact me
privately:

Morris FRIEND (Anglicized name) >from Lublin, Poland, married to Beckie. I
don't know if he was >from the city itself or surrounding area.
They lived on Union Ave in the Bronx. He was a bookmaker. They married in
1917. Their children were: Benjamin (b 1918) and twins (?) William and
Hyman (b 1923).

Thanks

IAJGS Conference-Gesher Galicia Luncheon Program #general

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

Gesher Galicia is pleased to announce that the speaker at our annual
luncheon to be held at the IAJGS conference in New York City on Monday,
August 14th will be author Daniel Mendelsohn, a frequent contributor to The
New York Review of Books , The New York Times Magazine and The New York
Times Book Review, who will discuss his new book, due out in October 2006,
"The Lost: A Search for Six of Six Million."

"The Lost" is the story of an odyssey in search of six ghosts. Daniel
Mendelsohn grew up in a family haunted by the disappearance of six relatives
during the Holocaust—an unmentionable subject that gripped the author’s
imagination >from his earliest childhood. Decades later—spurred by the
discovery of a cache of desperate letters written to his grandfather in
1939—he embarked on a hunt for the remaining eyewitnesses to his relatives’
fates

Part of Mendelsohn’s journey included a return to his family’s ancestral
shtetl of Bolechow, Ukraine, formerly Galicia, where his family had lived,
continuously, in the same house >from the late 17th century--when the Jews
first arrived--until 1941, when the Germans invaded. With Alex Dunai as his
guide, he sought to learn the truth about the lives of this vanished
family—an investigation into the meaning of memory, family and history..

The focus of his talk will be the "writer's angle" in genealogical research
and the emotions encountered when one moves between past and present in an
effort to solve a long-standing family mystery. Dunai will also be there,
providing his perspective on the role of the guide, researcher and
translator in undertaking a genealogical quest that resembles a detective
story..

The luncheon requires advance registration and a fee separate >from
conference registration.

Registration information can be accessed at the IAJGS conference website at:

http://www.jgsny2006.org/registration.cfm

We look forward to seeing you there!

Dear Genners, There are all kinds of reasons some of us may choose
not
to put down our location and that includes personal experience and
safety.
Sorry if this has already been mentioned, but I haven't read all the
posts yet.

As a victim of identity theft, I am extremely cautious giving out details
about myself that are posted in a public forum. Keep in mind, these
emails
are kept in archives and can be found anytime in the future. Not that I
would
expect JewishGen to be a source of identity theft, however having lived
through
the torturous experience of reclaiming my name, identity and credit, I'm
very paranoid about providing private information in a public record. I
for
one, might provide my specific location in private email exchange, but not
in a
public archived forum. We can still exchange family information even if
we
don't have a clue where each of us lives.
Up to a point.

The States is a big place. There are only a few Jewish centres in the UK -
London, Manchester and Leeds whereas the US is vast and knowing, say, which
major city would be useful, say.

If I was looking for family that had moved to the US in a particular
location, I might wish to contact a person who lives in that general area to
assist me.

As I understand it the USA is a federal country and the laws and rules of
registration are specific to each particular State, England is a very small
place in comparison with a centralised registry.

If I wanted assistance with family that moved hundred years ago to New
Jersey, then I might wish to contact someone who lives in New Jersey - in
the same way that people have contacted me personally about the situation in
London.

I respect your position, but there are quite obvious reasons why knowing
which state or city one is >from might be helpful.

As far as identity theft is concerned or spamming I don't use my real name
on any other newsgroup for the type of reasons you state - I recognise that
this group has a purpose which requires that one gives some personal
details.

If you find an entry in Yad Vashem, please look at the original
document. It will usually give the address of the submitter at the time
they made the submission.

Yad Vashem will not help you find a submitter. If the submitter lived
in Israel, try this link,

I am posting this reply publicly because there have been half-a-dozen of this
type of inquiry lately.

I just went into the Yad VaShem database and searched for a submitter named
Gerald Friedman who submitted a page for Betty Klein and in a few seconds the
image of the page came up, including the address of Gerald Friedman in Latin
letters. I do not understand how so many people find their Pages but don't
bother to look at them and copy the addresses.

Re: "Correct" way to enter main name in a tree #general

Hilary Henkin <hilary@...>
 

Dear group,
OK - I'm inconsistent. Mostly I use the birth name as a primary
name, but occasionally I use the name by which the person was
commonly known, especially if the common name was very dissimilar to
the birth name. I'll usually add the common or Americanized name to
the < Name > field. The software I use tries to get me to do that as a
"nickname", but I would rather see the common name right along with
the birth name.
My software also allows me to add "facts" so I created two called
< Hebrew Name > and < Yiddish name >, and I enter those details when
known. (If the difference interests you, check the Discussion Group
archives a few years ago - it's already been discussed.)

Zev mentioned what to do with all the people whose surnames are not
known. I was taught a trick for my software (the most commonly
sold). Example for a woman whose maiden name I don't know: < Sarah
\Katz (nee?)\ >. By typing the surname-with-(nee?) between
backslashes, the person is indexed with the others of that surname,
and the "nee?" doesn't act like a middle name. Cool trick. Note:
there is no space after the first backslash.
