Add your profiles to Geni town projects #austria-czech

Our AustriaCzech SIG is the most advanced of all the SIGs when it comes
to using Geni.com for linking our families. By now, we have such good
coverage, that it is nearly impossible for someone >from our region to
have a tree that isn't connected to everyone else. If you
haven't looked at the list of active town projects for Bohemia
and Moravia recently, see
http://www.geni.com/projects/Jewish-Communities-in-Bohemia-and-Moravia-Czech-Republic/12452.
With the diligent work of hundreds of SIG members,
we have created projects for about 270 towns and populated them with
thousands of individuals >from our trees. If you haven't done
this with your own family, please try it out. It is as easy as a mouse click to join projects
and add profiles to projects. If a town you are
researching does not have its own Geni project yet, please start one at
http://www.geni.com/projects, or ask for help starting a project. You
can also go to JewishGen's Family Finder
http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/ and find other researchers to invite to
join the Geni projects. You can build your tree and create town
projects on Geni for free, so there is no cost, nothing to lose, and
everything to gain >from collaborating with the rest of our SIG and
linking up your family tree. Please join in as we continue to lead the
way forward for Jewish genealogy in the 21st century.

I recently discovered a new Jewish research Institute in St Poelten in
Austria. The researchers there have bene most helpful and referred me to the
Meldeamt in the same town which provided me and my cousin with residence
records for our great uncle Siegfried WINTER >from Straznice and his wife
Aurelia Winkler v Haberfeld >from Kuzelan and Vienna.
This is very exciting and a breakthrough in my WINTER family research after
many years of hitting brick walls.
You can find the Jewish research Institute at :

help ad/ed? #general

Wendy Griswold
 

Hello, cousins, Shana Tova.

I keep trying to find the ADs/EDs and I always do it wrong.
Dyslexic or just bad at following directions, I don't know.

Looking for census record on my grandmother's brother,
Moses/Moshe/Morris/Moritz PFEIFFER (spelling gets mangled,
of course). He should be at 69 Willet St. in New York City
in the 1905 NY census and the 1910 Federal Census.

I came up with AD/12 ED7 for the New York 1905 census. It had
house numbers on Willet St., but not the one I need.

I have confirmation at that address in 1909, so have tried
looking in the 1910 search engines, and no luck. I think I need
to go back to the census rolls and I would love some help with AD/ED.

Thank you so much!

Wendy Griswold
Pittsfield MA

Searching: BLITZ, PFEIFFER around Zurawno (Galicia)
EINHORN, WENZELBERG, SHIFULDREM around Nowy Sacz (formerly Galicia)
DWASS (any spelling), SOROKOFF, around Ekaterinoslaw (also distant
GARFINKEL connection around Vitebsk)

MODERATOR: If you can help Wendy, please communicate with her
directly, rather than through this Group.

Pamela Weisberger z'l #general

Sandy Malek
 

It is with tremendous sadness, shock and devastation that I
share with you the tragic news I received this morning.

Our Vice-President of Programs, Pamela Weisberger, passed away
this morning, September 25, 2015, after a very brief illness.

At present, I have no information regarding services.

We will have a memorial later, but I am too shocked to try to
put anything together right now.

Our hearts, thoughts and prayers are with Pamela's family ...
her husband Ken, her three children and almost son-in-law, and
other relatives and dear friends.

JGSLA and the world of genealogy have truly lost a remarkable
individual, and we are all the poorer for it.

The Polish State Archive image web site had gradually uploaded images of

Intro - researching Blanckensee family from Wielun ( was Filehne), Poland #germany

a.vaughan@...
 

Hello GerSig
I have just signed up. I have been doing my family tree for several
years now. I am not expert but somewhere like "intermediate", I suppose,
But re German Jewish Genealogy I guess I am a beginner.
I live in Ashby de la Zouch, Leicestershire, England and my native language
is English. re computers and the Internet - I am probably intermediate.

I have the birth and death dates of my grandparents, Julia BLANCKENSEE
and John SILVERSTON.
For my great grandfather, Moses BLANCKENSEE, I have his birth date and
place, marriage certificate, naturalisation document, and death
certificate
My great grandmother was Mary Ann LAZARUS, I have her marriage and death
certificate.

My goal is to find out more about the acquiring of the name BLANCKENSEE

Also any more information about Moses parents; it looks as if they were called LEVY
On the marriage certificate for Moses BLANCKENSEE and Mary Ann, it gives
Moses'es father's sname as Lewin Moses LEVY
My JGFF Researcher ID number is 260161
I have entered the following names and towns in the JGFF
BLANCKENSEE and BLSNKENSEE - Wielen Poland
LEVY - Wielen Poland
I also have ancestors as follows
SCHULTZE - Warsaw and then Exeter, UK in 1841, a jeweller
SILVERSTON - Poland and then Exeter, UK 1830, jeweller and silversmith
BLANCKENSEE - Wielun, Poland (was Filehne, Prussia) and Bristol, England
in 1827, merchant and then jeweller
