I am new to this list. I am researching my family in Antwerpen
(Rubinsztejn, Horowiz, and Weissmann). Is there anybody to whom these
names are familiar?

I also have some photos >from Antwerp with many unidentified people.
Perhaps they would be interesting to the group--

The Library and Archives Canada are undergoing a modernization program which
includes digitization
( http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/about-us/modernization/Pages/default.aspx ) and
that is exactly what you are suggesting. However, there has been some press
that indicates that due to the budget cuts about half of the staff that was
dedicated to the modernization program received their termination notices.

obscure reference in Tomaszow M. document #general

Debbie Long <d_long@...>
 

Dear Colleagues,

I have a post-Holocaust document that lists inhabitants of Tomaszow
Mazowiecki around 1942. The document refers to an archive as "Archiwum
S. Pow".

Perhaps "Pow" is short for "powiat" which means "district."

Can you advise which archive this might be?

The Study of Pinkassim Research Workshops at The Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People #general

Rose Feldman <rosef@...>
 

A very interesting workshop will start next week - The Study of
Pinkassim. It is organized by the Central Archives for the History of
the Jewish People. They have asked people to register through email.
The email is on their website.

It is a greater opportunity for those of us (in Israel) doing projects
to hear this series. Luckily the four lectures in July are after the
conference in Paris.

Re: newly updated records #belarus

Paul Zoglin
 

Yesterday I posted a message about the 23000 newly uploaded records to the
JewishGen Belarus database. The links I posted for the inventory of those
records were too long to fit on one line and will not work with just a click
They need to be copied and pasted into the browser address window to work
properly. I've created new links that are shorter and (hopefully) should
work with just a click:

http://www.jewishgen.org/belarus/births.html

http://www.jewishgen.org/belarus/deaths.html

http://www.jewishgen.org/belarus/marriage-divorces.html

http://www.jewishgen.org/belarus/revisionlists.html

Note that the "more details" links on these pages are not to the actual records
but just to a page that lists the archive and fond/file of the records
To see the actual records you should use the JewishGen Belarus database
search engine: http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Belarus/

Sorry for any confusion this may have caused.

How can one access data at Centrum Judaicum Berlin? #germany

Jeff Lewy <airbair@...>
 

I am interested in the Todesanzeigen/obituaries for Breslau/Wroclaw
that are located in the Central Archives of German Jewry at the
Centrum Judaicum in Berlin. I understand these records are available
on site, although I do not know what years are available.

Has anyone had experience with requesting records >from the Centrum, by
email or regular mail? What information do they need to search
effectively? Are there fees? Can the fees, if any, be paid by other
than wire transfer? Can a researcher get the records? Does one need
to be a direct descendant to get the records? Is there a time
restriction on "more recent" records?

I ask all these questions since I realize the German privacy rules can
be quite strict.

I have searched the SIG and general discussion archives and could not
find any answers to these questions.

Although I welcome private replies, I encourage the list moderator to
assemble information about how to access these records for the general
use of JewishGen members. Thank you.

Note >from the List Moderator: Our Director of Research would be the one
to do this, not the Moderator. However, if you receive good advice off list
please send the information to the list so that everyone can read it and it
becomes part of our searchable archives. MODERATOR

Hi, I have been researching the REICH family who lived in or around
Reckendorf, Bavaria, Germany.

My father, Lothar Leopold SANDERS was the son of Jacob SANDERS and
Sara REICH. My father was named after his Grandfather Leopold REICH
who married Bertha SCHLOSS.

The SANDERS family lived in or around Kaldenkirchen, Nordrhein-Westfalen,
Germany, while the REICH family lived in or around Reckendorf, Bavaria,
Germany.

Any leads or specific information about Leopold REICH and Bertha SCHLOSS
would be greatly appreciated.

Previous few requests to SIG subscribers have been most gracious
and very helpful...thank you.

Family Tree Program I Use #belarus

Eli Rabinowitz
 

Hi all

It has been great to see how many responses I have had to the posting of
my blog on JewishGen.
I am pleased that so many joined me on my journey.

I have had many enquiries about which family tree program I use on my
Orla and Nasielsk Kehilalinks as well as on my blogs.

I use MacFamilyTree Pro for Mac.

I also use MobileFamilyTree Pro for iPhone and iPad. This is a
stand-alone app which works with iTunes and GEDCOM files, which most
decent genealogical programs can generate. You do not need a mac for
this program!

If you use both programs, you can wirelessly sync your data between all
your devices and your mac.

At a moment's notice I can produce colourful charts and reports or
update relationships >from my iPhone or iPad while on the road without a
PC or Mac
I am never caught out by not knowing how someone on my tree relates to
others on that tree.

An outstanding feature of this program is the visually appealing charts
and trees that are produced.

Examples of this are at:

Orla

http://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/orla/Skareshevsky.html


Nasielsk

http://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/nasielsk/Rotsztejn.html


my blog

http://elirab.posterous.com/brest-13-may-2012



Finally, MacFamilyTree includes a website to upload and access one's
tree:


http://www.macfamilytree.com/elirab/Rabinowitz%20Family%20Tree/index.html



Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about how
I use this program.

Thanks and regards
