Re: Mt. Carmel cemetery records for Joachim WILLHEIM #general

Carol Rombro Rider
 

Judy Stonefield was lucky that Barbara Mannlein was able to help her
find the record she was looking for.

It is a very good research tip - - when you can't find someone that you
just know should be there, try putting the name in backwards. Even on the
same census record I have on occasion found most people listed first name
first, surname second - - and then suddenly, there is a surname first and
first name last! Crazy? Yes. But you can't fight it.

So if you are looking for someone and can't find them, try to reverse the names.
I do this regularly and find things that would have stay buried for years.....

Cemetery and mortuary research advice update #general

prayerboy@juno.com <prayerboy@...>
 

Just a note to thank responders who encouraged me to not be reluctant to
contact the mortuary or cemetery connected with the burial of my great uncle
Louis Schwed. I didn't contact the mortuary, but an email to the cemetery did
provide me with the name of the brother who handled Louis's arrangements, a
piece of information that helped me understand a little more about family
relationships.

Re: [Fwd: Dorohoi city births and marriages] #romania

Bob Wascou
 

I have also submitted an update to the Bessarabia Vital Records
database of over 4,600 births and 1,400 marriages. The births are from
Bendery area and Novoselitsa, the marriages are >from Kishinev. There
will over 162,000 records in the database when these records are
added.

There will be two new databases in the Romanian databases. They are
the Moldavia Region Records and the Bucovina Region records. See
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Romania/RomaniaRegions.htm for the
areas that are covered in the Geographical Regions for the JewishGen
Romania Database

The Moldavia Region will have over 9,600 births, 2,600 marriages and
1,400 deaths. These records will also be >from Dorohoi and include
records >from Harlau, Iasi and lesser quantities >from Bicaz, Burdujeni,
Falticeni, Herta, Lespezi, Pascani and Podu Iloaiei.

The Bucovina Region will have births >from Campulung Moldovenesc, Gura
Humorului, Radauti and the town of Suceava.

We can use more volunteers to help us translate the many records that
we have. If you are able to help us please contact me at
http://tinyurl.com/vol-transcriber . We can especially use volunteers
who know Romanian or German to work on some of our projects.

Donations are also needed so we can acquire more records. Please

From: "Sorin Goldenberg" <soring0412@...>

I would like to update that our team has completed the acquisition and
indexing of Dorohoi city births 1886-1905 and civil marriages 1866 - 1905.

There are about 5700 Jewish births registered in the period 1886 -
1905. Quite disappointing, only about 770 Jewish marriages were
registered in the whole period 1866 - 1905.
In addition, we have acquired and indexed records >from the following
towns >from Botosani county: Botosani (1866-1910), Bucecea (1865-1898),
Saveni (1865-1907),

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

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.
