ViewMate Translation WEININGER - FREIDENBERG #france

I've posted a marriage document in two parts which looks to provide a
good deal of information besides the names and dates. I'd appreciate
a complete translation of the French so I don't miss anything pertinent.

JGS (NY) Meeting Sunday, April 19 #general

Harriet Mayer
 

Please join us.

JGS (NY) Meeting - Sunday, April 19 at 2 PM
at the Center for Jewish History, 15 West 16th St.,New York

Program: "Paper Love: Searching for the Girl My Grandfather Left Behind"
Speaker: Sarah Wildman

After his death, journalist Sarah Wildman discovered a purposefully
hidden cache of her grandfather's letters. With those in hand, she set
out to discover the stories he had not told the family after he fled
Vienna in 1938. There was a lover, and she had remained in Europe,
caught in Nazi occupied Czechoslovakia and later in Berlin.

The story traces Sarah's path >from Vienna to the Czech Republic to
Berlin and back to Vienna, to Israel, to the U.S.

It's about family myth and memory, about what refugees could and not
do for those they left behind, and it's about what we can rescue
of one person's story.

Sarah Wildman will tell us about her research in archives and
travels to discover this story. Sarah writes on the intersection of
culture and politics, history and memory in Europe and America.
Over the last decade, she has lived in and reported >from Paris,
Vienna, Madrid, Washington, Jerusalem and Berlin. She has made
numerous television and radio appearances and has lectured both
in the United States and abroad.

A book signing will follow the talk. (Only credit card payments
will be accepted.)

No charge for JGS ; guests, $5 at the door.

In Addition: Bring your lunch and meet with fellow JGS members
in the Chapel at 12:30 for Lunch & Learn. This month our topic
will be New York records and research.

The Ackman & Ziff Family Genealogy Institute at CJH will be open
at 11 AM with access to research materials and computers.

Grandmother Search #general

Katherine Dawkins
 

Hello JewishGen Family

I'm looking for my grandmother's people. I'm a little stuck and
hope that someone might point me into the right direction!
My 3rd grandmother's name was Fidesta Albertha WILSON, born in
Jamaica in 1873. Fidesta's parents were Frederick and Sarah E.
Wilson who may have come >from or were born in England but lived
in Jamaica. There are no surname records for Sarah's mother Ann
Wilson or dates of events. I want to know who Ann Wilson
was/surname and where she is really from. I'd like to also know
if Fidesta/the family is Sephardic? The parents' names are very
Anglo/British.

Thanks so much,
Katherine Dawkins

Re: A found manuscript: How to publish? #general

Hank Mishkoff
 

I haven't followed this discussion >from the beginning, but...

Just in terms of the technical aspects of publication, Amazon
offers services that allow you to create and publish your own
eBooks (Kindle Direct Publishing, at https://kdp.amazon.com/ )
and paperbacks (CreateSpace, at https://www.createspace.com/ ).
They're both free, if you're willing to do the work yourself
(although Amazon will try to encourage you to let them do the
work for you, for a fee). I've used both of these services not
only to publish one of my own books but to publish a few Yizkor
Book translations under the auspices of JewishGen. There's a
learning curve for both processes (they're not exactly simple,
but they're not rocket science, either), but the results are
definitely worth the effort.

Mode Alexander wrote:

400+ page typed manuscript buried in a box
full of other family "stuff". To my delight, it was written by my
grandmother, sometime before her death in 1944.
[...]
This book is very accurate historically and may be worthy of publication,
if I proceed correctly.

At this point, I need feedback >from those of you who have been successful
in publishing manuscripts written by ancestors. [...]

Can any of you point me in the right direction after this? Any and all
suggestions will be greatly appreciated.[...]
