Boston Birds of a Feather (BoF) meeting opportunity #yiddish

dorsharris@...
 

Dear Members -
Registration is now open for the 33rd IAJGS International Conference
on Jewish Genealogy scheduled for August 4-9, 2013 at the Boston Park
Plaza Hotel.

We have an opportunity to schedule a Birds of a Feather (BoF)
get-together if there is enough interest by the YT&V membership. It
allows an opportunity to meet others interested in all aspects of
Yiddish entertainment and provides some limited time to exchange
stories and ask questions.

However, there have been very few postings to the YT&V in the past year
and if there is only a limited interest in a BoF meeting it could be delayed
for a future conference. Your opinions are requested.

Unless there is some reason to post to the entire YT&V membership,
please address any comments or suggestions directly to the moderator
at <davenasa@...>

Thank you.
David Harris

researching ZEIDEN / SEIDEN from Krakow #galicia

Peter Kiernan <petervkiernan@...>
 

I am seeking information related to Moshe (Moses) Zeiden/Seiden who was
born in 1846 and I believe lived in Krakow until he left with his wife (first
name Shudmak, b.1848) in 1882 to go to the UK, and then to Australia in
1885. I am trying to find out if they left any relatives behind in Krakow or
thereabouts at the time. If anyone would have any tips on how to research
this, such as finding out who their parents were and if they had any
brothers or sisters, I would like to be in touch. Also, if anyone on the list
knows something about the name Zeiden/Seiden >from the Galician area I
would also like to find out more if possible.

Dear Bessarabers,

33rd International Conference in Boston (www.iajgs2013.org) provides great
opportunities for groups of individuals who researching the same areas. It
might be a group researching a particular town or uezd (district). I know
that in our Bessarabia SIG there are many members researching and interested
in towns like Belts, Soroka, Akkerman, Khotin, Brichany, etc. If you want
to have a meeting discussing research for that town or district, to share
information, recruit new members, you just need to submit an application
for the BOF meeting. Your group will have a meeting for 1 hour 15 minutes,
it will be included in the conference program, and you can also participate
in SIG-BOF Fair. All this information is available at the conference
website: www.iajgs2013.org .

I know that there is a strong research community for town of Soroki as well
as surrounding areas (www.soroki.com ). If you are planning to participate
in the conference this your chance. Another group Sokiryany-Jewish-Roots
group is considering to participate. Where are many people with
connections to Ataki, Akkerman, and many more.

Such groups will need to have a leader(s) to prepare such meeting. If you
have questions, please let me know.
If you are interested in such "town"/"district" groups gathering, please
reply to this message to the whole group.

All the best,

Searching for records of Ethel (unknown hebrew name) SOLOMOVICH or BERCOVICI
and Schmuel Zvi (Albert) SCHLEIFER/SCHLIFER.

I do know that the PINCU family came >from Botosani, Romania.
The couple had 3 children:

Frederick (Ephraim) SCHLIFER born 1884 married Dobrish PINCU in Iasi,
Romania in 1902.

Chaya (or Chaia) SCHLIFER and Soloman (Charles) SCHLIFER born 1889 may have
been twins Soloman married Ruchal SHEYER in 1902 in York, Ontario, Canada
The names SOLOMOVICH and SCHLEIFER come >from their marriage record.
Chaya I am unable to find any record of and am also unsure whether is male
or female.

The children were sent to Canada and the family has thrived here.
Any information would be extremely helpful.

Thank you,

Finally and perhaps most importantly, in Manifest #2, a line has been
drawn through my family members' names and information.


The line drawn through a set of passenger ship entries has one of two
meanings.
1. They did not sail on this voyage.
2. They appear elsewhere on the manifest.

Clearly, yours is case #2.
I would give consideration to any and all information given on both sets
of entries.

They are on Ancestry page 23 of 27, lined out, indexed as BRUDNGA

Re: Bendery Cemetery project (Bessarabia) #general

Yefim Kogan
 

Dear JewishGeners,

I want to let you all know on a progress of this project.
Bendery was one of the major Jewish towns with more than 10,000 Jews living
at the beginning of 20 century.

The whole cemetery registry will have about 5,000 records with almost
all tombstones will be photographed.

As of now about half of the records, 2654, with photos - 2364 are uploaded
to JewishGen JOWBR and will be available online with the next JOWBR
upload.

All records >from the Burial registry we obtained are already
translated/transliterated.

I want to thank everybody in our dedicated team who did a great job to
translate records >from Russian and Hebrew into English:
Ala Gamulka, Janet Furba, Sasha Berkovich, Carol Scolnik, Claire Stuart,
Paola Khalili.

I also want to thank many people at ViewMate who helped to understand
several Hebrew inscriptions.

The remaining part of the project will be ready in the spring of this
year.

I am asking our members to donate for the project (Bendery Cemetery
project) that we could pay for the photographs taken.

http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=43

Without your help we cannot finish the project and we may not be able to
do more such projects in the future.
