The Israel Genealogical Society is pleased to issue this call for
papers for the 7th Annual One Day Seminar [Yom Iyun] to take place at
Beit Hatefutzot in Tel Aviv on Tuesday, 29 November 2011 / 3 Kislev
5772.

This year the central theme will be:

Genealogy is Multifaceted!

Genealogy covers every aspect of the lives of our families: their
daily lives, their emigration and immigration, marriages and divorces,
births and deaths, education and occupations, property, illnesses, and
even the food they ate.

Research in every area of genealogy today is aided in nontraditional
ways, by understanding how to manipulate the latest technology, be it
twitter, Facebook, webinars, blogs, ebooks or other options available
through the internet.

This year our seminar will be divided into two parts. The first part
will include presentations on different aspects of genealogy, >from
demography to everyday living. The second part will take a lecture to
show how technology could be applied to researching that topic. There
will be workshops at different levels where we will learn how to use
various technical aspects to advance our research methods.

We invite you to propose lectures on any discipline linked to
genealogy and if you have used any of the various methods of
electronic research, please indicate that in your proposal. New ways
of research will be covered in separate â??hands onâ?? sessions. If you
would like to lead one of these, please indicate that.

Length of your proposal: Up to 100 words
Indicate your preferred language of presentation[s]: English or Hebrew or both
Please include a short biography: Under 50 words
Last date for receiving your proposal: 15 June 2011
Address to which to send your proposal: yomiyun7@...

We look forward to your submissions!

Yizkor Book Project, April 2011 #ukraine

bounce-2220421-772980@...
 

Shalom,

It seems to me to be significant that this monthly report comes in
conjunction with Yom HaShoa [Holocaust Day] which is commemorated
this coming Monday. The Yizkor Book Project continues, throughout
the year, to ensure that our loved ones and communities that were
destroyed in the Holocaust are not forgotten. The wide scope of
the project, as shown in this report, is certainly testimony to
this fact.

Now, if it so happens that the community close to your heart
doesn't appear in our Translations Index
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html
or the existing translation is only partial, and you feel you can
help organizing or translating or financially supporting a project,
I'm waiting to hear >from you. I will certainly do what I can to see
that "your" community Yizkor Book joins the many hundreds already
appearing online. Note, that it is possible to financially support
our translation projects at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
and we are grateful for any sum you are able to donate.

One Yizkor Book that has now been completely translated is the
Sokoly Yizkor Book - and Avigdor and Laia Ben-Dov, who have been
behind this project for many years are to be highly commended for
seeing this through to its successful completion. This month also,
we have gratefully received a full translation for the Khmelnytskyy,
Ukraine (Proskurov) book, and the complete English version of the
Ostrolenka Yizkor book, and the first sections of these books
have already been put online. I can also tell you that other full
translations are on their way in the near future and so, as always,
keep watching this space.

Also this month, I'm pleased to announce that in the last quarter,
some 3,400 names have been added to the Yizkor Book necrology database
at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Yizkor/
This unique database is maintained and updated by the tireless team
of Max Heffler and Ernie Fine and this quarter they have added in
the names >from the following communities:

Bivolari, Moldavia 344
Derecske, Hungary 271
Lukow, Poland 173
Siemiatycze, Poland 1165
Tluszcz, Poland 168
Turiysk, Ukraine 455
Zborow, Poland 821

And on the subject of necrologies, we continue to look for volunteers
able to assist us in transliterating the many lists we have and make
the lists available to the public. If you are familiar with
transliterating, Excel and have some time to help out, I would
more than very pleased to hear >from you.

Now to the April figures.

Searching for congregation lists for Lower East Side synagogues #general

David Laskin
 

My great-grandfather was an extremely religious Jew who emigrated from
Russia to Madison Street on the Lower East Side in 1909. I am trying
to find out which synagogue he belonged to. I am aware that most of
the small Lower East Side synagogues are long since defunct, but I'm
wondering if anyone has any clue as to where I could find their
archives or lists of congregants?
Thanks.

Photos on Israeli Roots Forum this Wednesday #general

Ava Cohn <avatom@...>
 

I'd like to invite all those in Israel and elsewhere who can read and write
Hebrew and who have a Hebrew-enabled computer keyboard to join me for a
special May 4 Ask the Expert session on Israeli Roots Forum. The 90-minute
online session which begins at 9pm Israeli time (2pm EDT and 1pm CDT in the
U.S.) will be moderated by Arnon Hershkovitz. I'll be answering general
photo-related questions.

Freda (Alfreda) LAUFER from Lodz and Pinkas HaNitzolim I #general

arlene@...
 

An aunt of mine, Freda (Alfreda) LAUFER (her maiden name), who was born in
Lodz in 1922, died in Cape Town recently and left a letter detailing some of
her experiences during the WWII. After her father and sister (apparently her
only sibling) died in the Lodz Ghetto, she and her mother were sent to
Auschwitz, where her mother was immediately gassed. She went to work in the
Krupp factory and afterwards was transferred to Sachsenhausen and thereafter
to Ravensbruck. After the War she was sent to Sweden.

In her letter she makes no mention of the names of her parents or her
sister. I am trying to find their names.

She is mentioned in the Pinkas HaNitzolim I - Register of Jewish Survivors
as arriving in Sweden - Reference 12 B page 118. Where can I find a copy of
this Pinkas?

How do I locate the original family name? #general

joe fox <joelaminator@...>
 

How do I locate the original family name when I already have:

1.the application and citizenship document of my great grandfather,
Samuel - only with the new name FOX
2. the first names only of his parents in Germany (possibly Prussia)
- Jacob/Carrie
3. the full maiden name of his wife, my great grandmother - Meana/Minnie/Mini
KLEINMAN
4. the full names of her parents in Germany - Charles and Rosa KLEINMAN

I have not been able to locate marriage records >from USA or Germany or
the birth records of any children. Also I have a slew of arrival
dates. Assuming Meana KLEINMAN and Samuel FOX were married in Germany
and sailed under the original family name, the tracking becomes tougher.

Help! RSVP and Thanks.
