Dear Genners,
I agree with Allen Jordan and wonder if it would be possible for JewishGen
to get control of the data on her agent orange site and transfer it to the
Latvia SIG data.

I think the most fitting memorial/tribute to Christine has to be make sure

efforts. It
would be very sad if her work is not preserved so that future researchers
can
also benefit >from it in her memory.

Hi All

I am pleased to announce that Witbank, first South African Kehilalink on
JewishGen, is now up and running.
After many years of research and compilation by Barry Mann, I have created the
Witbank website and it is now active.
It can be accessed at the following address:

I want to thank Barry for all the information he provided.
If you are connected to Witbank and you would like to share your memories, stories
or photos, please contact me.
I look forward to your feedback.
Further news is that I am now working on the Muizenberg Kehilalink for JewishGen.
If you live in Australia, there is something exciting coming your way, soon to be
revealed!

Dear Friends, I am seeking information on Hungarian ancestry of both my
mother and father.

My mother's father was Ferenc EHRRENREICH, and he had a Coffee house on a
Budapest Boulevard in the 1920's. Her grandmother was an UNGERLELIDER >from
Hommene.

My father's father was Josef JAKOBUVITZ >from Udva, Quinnplen, Hungary, which
I understand is now part of Czech Slovakia. If this information is not part
of the Sub-Carpathia Sig Web, could you give me suggestions on other sources?

Thank You.

Sign Up Now for Special Events at IAJGS Boston Conference #belarus

Florence Schumacher, Boston 2013 Publicity Chair
 

If you have been waiting to sign up for the special events at the IAJGS
2013 Boston conference, time is running out.

The tours (sign up at www.tours.iajgs2013.org ) are very popular -- filling
up fast and selling out. In response to the high demand, we are pleased to
announce that we are offering a second walking tour of Boston's Old South
End, but we do not have that capability for any of the other tours.

The two bus tours are also filling up. Visit the Touro Synagogue
(www.tourosynagogue.org), America's oldest synagogue and a national
historic site, as it celebrates its 250th anniversary this year. The
curator and archivist of the synagogue's visitor center, David Kleiman,
will travel on the bus with the group to provide background and then will
lead the tour. The Colonial Jewish Burial Ground
(http://www.loebtouro.org/jll_cem.shtml), generally closed to the public,
will be opened especially for our group. Tour Date & Destination: Sunday,
August 4, Newport, Rhode Island.

Visit the Yiddish Book Center (www.yiddishbookcenter.org) which rescued
over a million Yiddish books >from dumpsters around the world as the older
generation of Yiddish speakers passed on and their children could not read
the language of their parents and ancestors. This ongoing campaign has
saved Yiddish literature for future generations and made the widespread
university-level study of Yiddish language and literature possible. It
earned Aaron Lansky, the Center's founder and director, a "Genius Grant"
from the MacArthur Foundation and an invitation to be the keynote speaker
at our opening session. Tour Date & Destination: Friday, August 9,
Amherst, Massachusetts.

The special events involving meals (sign up at www.meals.iajgs2013.org) --
Breakfasts with Experts, SIG Luncheons, and the Gala Banquet -- have
limited space and a sign-up deadline of July 24. Genzyme is offering a
symposium on Ashkenazi Jewish genetic diseases, with a specially priced
breakfast on Thursday. The banquet on Thursday night features the
outstanding Zamir Chorale (www.zamir.org) of Boston.

The 19 computer workshops (sign up at www.workshops.iajgs2013.org) -- four
using Mac computers -- have very limited space. Subjects range >from Steve
Morse's popular "One-Step Search" tools to Reunion(R) and Family Tree
Maker(R) genealogy software. The hands-on workshops can teach you new
skills in doing research in Bessarabia, Hungary, Latvia, or Poland or how
better to use the Internet, social media, or JewishGen.

Drohitchin, Belarus Vital Records #belarus

k zeff
 

I am descended >from the Feldman & Kamenetsky families of Drohitchin. I have
the yizkor books for Drohitchin and have found many family members included there,
thanks to my great uncle Joe Feldman. There is a branch of the family,
the Meshevsky or Mishovsky branch, that is related but I do not know exactly how.
I am hoping that there are vital records available for Drohitchin where I can
continue my research. Is anyone aware of the availability of vital records for
Drohitchin?


Thank you.

Hello,

A friend is looking for two sisters who entered the US through the port
of Boston. She only knows their Yiddish names, Sheindl and Guizi
Sherman. I've been unable to find them in census or ship records.
Could anyone suggest some English translations for "Sheindl" and
"Guizi"?

Thanks very much.
