Ukraine SIG and Salt Lake City #ukraine

Janette Silverman
 

Stay tuned for a complete line-up of speakers and topics beginning at 7
AM on Thursday, July 31 and continuing through lunch, including of
course the two talks by Eric Goldman, our official Ukraine SIG speaker.
Speaking of whom, don't forget to sign up for the Ukraine SIG lunch on
July 31.

Many of us are planning to go to Salt Lake City for the conference -
some are even planning to arrive early or stay late - here's how you can
help if you will be in Salt Lake City before or after the conference.
As you are undoubtedly aware, the SIG embarked on a project of huge
scope - scanning the microfilms held by the Family History Center that
pertain to Jews in the territory covered by Ukraine SIG. There are over
400 reels of microfilm for vital records and revision/censuses. We have
been tackling the 220 vital records films first but progress is slow.
If you think you will have some time that you can spend volunteering to
scan microfilm while you are in Salt Lake City, please let me or Harvey
Kabaker know.

See you in Salt Lake!
Janette

Jewish Name in English #ukraine

Hi Everyone,

My Grandmother's name was Esther. In my research, I have found some of her
siblings birth records, but not hers. One of her siblings had the first
name, Sosa. What would the Americanized name possibilities be for Sosa? I
guess I'm trying to figure out if that could be her? Thanks for your help.

I would like you to pass to me and to our group all information about
Bessarabia Vital records Project what was left to do.
Bob did a great job at this project, and our Bessarabia SIG can finish it

We would like to know what sets of records are in progress and what sets

Dear All,

As you know we are very much missing Bob Wascou's experienced hand in
matters dealing with the materials we are receiving >from our Romanian
researchers, and the creation of the databases, etc.

We are seeking a person, or persons, who have some experience in dealing
with databases, and administrative skills, to work with our great and
willing volunteers, etc.

Without this kind of help our ability to acquire, create the databases with
data that so many of us have been waiting for, and get them up on JewishGen,
is going to come to an end. I am sure that none of you would be happy about
that!.........
Please contact me for further information if you are interested. We now have
over 2200 members of the Rom-SIG. Surely there must be some among you who
care enough, and would be able to step up to the plate to help!........

Jews of Bulgaria #sephardic

Carol Rombro Rider
 

I have four booklets in my possession regarding the Bulgarian Jews
who moved to Israel and established the community of Hartuv in 1895.
The booklet appears to be a translation of an original in Hebrew.
The pioneering families were named LEVI, GIRON, BEN-BASSAT, GARTI,
BEN-AROVA, COHEN, TZARFATI, BECHAR AND RUBISSA.

If you are interested in the above names >from Bulgaria or are related
to these families, I will be glad to mail you the booklet. There are
quite a few photos included.

If any JGS Society would like one, please feel free to e-mail me.

My grandfather: Sam Moldawsky
My Grandmother: Anna Moldawsky
Three Children: Alice, Irving, Dora.

Dora was my mother.

They do not show up in ANY census records before 1940 yet my mother (1913) and her
siblings were born in Brooklyn.

I am just getting started, but am stymied by the complete lack of information on
her whole family prior to 1940.

Any help would be appreciated.
