Seeking Przemysl researchers, plus IAJGS Conference #general

Sheila Schneider <Sheila.Schneider@...>
 

The conference schedules for labs, lectures, workshops, etc was
fantastic! My thanks to the New York JGS and the individuals behind the
scenes, who organized and coordinated everything. Kudos to all... this
was a beautifully orchestrated event.

I would like to extend a special thank you to Marian Rubin and
Eden Joachim (Acting Co-Coordinator, Gesher Galicia, Inc) >from the
Rzeszow Research Group for their guidance and support in assisting me to
revitalize the Przemysl Networking Group (PNG) for the city of Przemysl
in southeast Poland. As the new coordinator, I am inviting existing and
new researchers who have surnames >from the city of Przemysl to join the
PNG.
Please email me with your name, email address and your surnames so I can
update the PNG Membership List. In the next few weeks the PNG website
will be updated with new information.

IAJGS Conference in NY #belarus

Susana Leistner Bloch
 

Just returned >from New York where I attended the IAJGS Conference.

My advise to all is that they make sure to attend future conferences
so they will be able to compare them with the next conference the New
York JGS hosts!!!

And to all JGS that will host future conferences: now you have a
perfect model to help you plan yours!

The Conference ran as smoothly as melted butter and as crisp as a
croissant. A veritable feast!!! Congratulations to all involved,
specially Linda Cantor, Hadassah Lipsius, Gloria Freund, and Roni Liebowitz.

Re: The Best Advice To A New Genealogy Researcher #general

Diane Jacobs <thegenie@...>
 

Just to add on to this line of thought. I don't usually have to do this,
as I place as *notes*, all documents found, photo info, newspaper entries,
inquiries >from other researchers under each family name I am searching. I
include everything that is in that record in the note. Then when I do find
some link, I go through all my notes which are organized by year and then
document type (ie. census, vital record) and place those that are related to
my family under the correct person's information. This also helps to link
others who are related.

Diane Jacobs

The best advice I ever received is good for genealogists at all levels.
Researchers should go through their files, photos, notes, etc. periodically
to review what they already have. Something that was found and filed away in
the past may now provide even more information because of subsequent
research that casts new light on the old find.

Bertha/Bromcha ZEIDLER mystery #general

Ben Forman <ben.forman@...>
 

Hi Genners

I have a small (so far) mystery and I know you all love them, so I
thought I'd open it to the floor.
My GGGM was known variously as Bromcha and Bertha ZEIDLER, when my
G-Uncle (her grandson) gave me her details he called her Bromcha,
daughter of Raphael ZEIDLER. She married my GGGF Harris and the marriage
certificate says she was born in 1972 and her name is Bertha. So far so
good, now the confusing bit, I know that when they newly married couple
decided to change their surname they chose a double barrelled name, one
part of which was Seider which came >from Bertha/Bromchas maiden name.
And indeed, searching the 1901 census one finds a Raphael Seider, watch
repairer, aged 60 living in Manchester as expected, but it lists his
wife as Bertha Seider aged 53 - hence the mystery. Why would my GGGM
have the same name as her mother. The only thing I can currently think
of is that her actual mother passed away/was not on the scene in 1901
and Raphael had remarried someone who happened to share the same name as
his daughter. They don't seem to appear on any earlier census' as
ZEIDLER/SEIDLER/SEIDER at all but i'm sure they should appear on the
1891 as they the marriage was in 1893.

Any thoughts appreciated

thanks as always

Quite untrue - {except it is a good place to visit]. You find links
in Vienna to Galician families you could find nowhere else in a
million years! I know because I have done it for many Jewishgenners!
And I am not a Galician - I did it as a challenge.
Celia,

I am afraid that you are confusing the issues.

If person that was born in pre WWI Galicia, have then settled (or his/her
parents) in Austria proper, married there or have passed away, or have been
expelled after 1938 Anschluss to Poland, or have been "transferred" to the
concentration/death camps, one will be able to trace this person records
and make connections to his birthplace in Galicia.

What Peter Zavon and myself have responded on this subject, is that Galician
vital records were _not_ transferred directly to the Vienna archives, and
search for those records should be originated in Polish archives.

How to find Shtetl location in the absence of Family records #hungary

Warren D. Fishbaugh <WFISH@...>
 

H-sig listers: I have a record of ancestors who migrated to the US
ca.1890. The passenger list seems to suggest the family came >from Zsolna
(Zilina) Hungary , but records of Zsolna do not seem to show relevant
births. Is it possible Zsolna is merely the starting point of their
journey and if so how can I find birthplaces? Also the same problem
arises with a Schwartz family >from Miscolcs , Hungary? Thanks in advance
for any helpful suggestions. Warren Fishbaugh
