Newbie - not finding any information about Polish ancestors #general

Elad Benjamin
 

Hi,

New on the forum, have read through the tips, however not getting traction. My
grandparents were >from southern Poland, and most of their families were killed in
the Holocaust - 12 brothers and sisters, their parents and children.

My family never spoke much about them, so I'm working off of imperfect
information - but I still expected to find something...am not getting
a single hit or verification for any of the names that I have.

The families lived in Kielce (grandmother) and Stryi (grandfather)
before the war. Stryi is now part of the Ukraine.

Any pointers on finding more accurate information would be very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Elad Benjamin

But how do I find out when that was?

New Book by Dr. Alexander Beider: A Dictionary of Jewish Surnames from the Mediterranean Region, Volume 1: Maghreb, Gibraltar and Malta. #sephardic

Gary Mokotoff
 

Avotaynu has just published Dr. Alexander Beider's first book on Sephardic
surnames. Its title is "A Dictionary of Jewish Surnames >from the
Mediterranean Region - Volume 1 - Maghreb, Malta and Gibraltar,"

The book identifies nearly 2,000 independent root surnames >from which more
than 10,000 variant surnames are derived. A typical entry contains three
sections: Main, Origin and Variants.
. The Main section identifies the surname and spelling variants (in both
Latin and Hebrew characters), where in the region it was used, earliest
references, and bibliographic source of the information. There are nearly
300 sources >from which Dr. Beider draws his conclusions.
. The Origin section includes an identification of bearers of the name as
having a single common ancestor (monogenetic) or multiple independent
ancestors (polygenetic). This is followed by the etymology-the linguistic
origin of the name.
. Finally, the Variant section shows the main variants of the name that
exist in the region.

The book is 728 pages, hardcover. It can be ordered at
http://avotaynu.com/books/Maghreb.html . The website also includes a
complete list of names, a sample entry >from the dictionary (the surname
Abecassis) and the Table of Contents.

Ukraine SIG at the IAJGS Conference July 22-29 #ukraine

Janette Silverman
 

Dear Fellow Researchers:

Ukraine SIG day at the conference is Tuesday, July 25.

1. Ukraine SIG 101 - Beginning at 9:45 AM the session will guide
participants through the complexities of the SIG. This how-to-session
will focus on walking researchers through the various aspects of the SIG
and its website. Although this is a beginners session it is suitable for
all who need a refresher on using the website and other tools available
through Ukraine SIG.

2. Ukraine SIG - the next level begins at 11:15. We will discuss
additional tools and in-depth research and cover many all-important
means by which you may become involved in our SIG's process and help
your own research move along more quickly.

3. Our SIG luncheon features speaker Phyllis Berenson who will talk
about traveling in Ukraine and the two research trips she made over a
very short period. She will discuss the reason for and the scope of her
travel and realizing her goals of visiting her maternal grandmother's
town of Mogilev-Podolskiy, walking in her footsteps, and finding her
father's grave and visiting Shargorod another ancestral town. The
luncheon requires payment and registration in advance, so please make
sure that you sign up for the lunch.

4. At 2 PM, our annual SIG meeting will be held. At this meeting, we
will discuss the state of the SIG. Among other topics we will cover data
which has been included in the JewishGen databases between June 2016 and
June 2017, reports about status of the Town Leadership, the joint effort
between Family Search and Ukraine SIG to translate the 1897 census from
Odessa, recent data acquisitions and how the SIG fits into JewishGen.

In addition to these "official SIG" sessions, there are many other
sessions going on all week that include information about Ukraine, and
many sessions being presented by Ukraine SIG members.

I hope you are planning to join us in Orlando and I look forward to
seeing you there.

Mano LOFFLER from Budapest - burial and address enquiry #hungary

Yohanan
 

I am asking your help in locating the burial place of my great uncle, Mano
LOFFLER, who died in Budapest on 21st of January 1941.
I have looked at JewishGen, MACSE and in Oroklet, and found his death
registration in Familysearch
(see Viewmate http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM54681
).
But - I couldn't find his burial place;
there is a Mano LOFFLER in the list but his death year is 1913.
I am planning a visit to Budapest and would like to visit his burial place.
Any suggestion where to start from?
An interesting fact is that in the death registration his address shows as
13 Rumbach u. which is the address of the Rumbach Synagogue.
Family legend is that Mano has operated a small Synagogue >from home as of
1922, but Rumbach Synagogue is not a small family Synagogue.
Any possible explanation?
