Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

The International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies announces
an invitation to submit lecture, workshop, and panel proposals for the
36th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy, locally hosted
by the Jewish Genealogical Society of Washington State. The conference
will be held at the Sheraton Seattle Hotel in Seattle, Washington from
August 7 to 12, 2016.

We seek proposals relevant to the interests of all genealogists
researching Jewish ancestors. In addition to proposals for lectures,
proposals for workshops or panel discussions are also welcome. New
presentations are encouraged, as are presentations and workshops that
provide practical research methodologies that will help conference
participants in their research. Highly original topics that will attract
participants will also be given special consideration.

The major focus of the Conference will be on Jewish migration, with a
general theme of "Westward Ho." General topics for presentations will
include European Jewry, migrations to the United States, migration of
American Jewry across America, and Jews in the Western United States. A
special geographic focus will be programming based on our branches in
Australia, South America, and South Africa.

Other focus areas are technology in support of genealogical research and
ethical considerations in genealogy. A special focus at this Conference
will be the Sephardic experience in America, in all of its varied aspects.

Presentations and panel discussions will be 75 minutes, which includes
15 minutes reserved for questions and answers. There is also an option,
this year, for shorter presentations of 45 or 60 minutes, including 15
minutes for questions and answers.

All proposals must be submitted using the Conference website
(www.iajgs2016.org), under the Program tab. In addition to basic
demographic and biographic information about the speaker(s), proposals
must include the presentation title, a brief description of the
presentation and target audience level,

The deadline form submission of proposals is December 15, 2015!
Submitters of proposals will be notified by email no later than February
15, 2016 as to whether or not their proposal has been accepted. You may

Lots of new data - Svencionys DRG of LitvakSIG #lithuania

Russ Maurer
 

The Svencionys District Research Group of LitvakSIG has just posted
over 2500 lines of revision list data >from 1850 or 1851 for the
shtetls of Adutiskis, Kobylniki/Naroch, Komai, Lyntupy, Naujasis
Daugeliskis, Svir, and Zhodzishki. This single addition increases the
amount of shtetl-specific data on our site by about 30 percent. This
information is available now to qualified contributors to the
Svencionys DRG, and will migrate to the All-Lithuania Database after
approximately 18 months. Even if you don't think your ancestors were
in these shtetls, it is worth looking as people did move around.
Those interested in further information about becoming qualified
contributors and gaining immediate access to these, and our other data
files, are invited to contact either of the Co-coordinators.

Happy hunting!

Re: Success in finding YANUSHPOLSKY family #ukraine

HelenieIrit
 

Dear Mrs.GINSBURG,

Thanks for sharing your story with us.
While entering to the JewishGen there is a request for sharing success
stories.
Please, publish your story there too for encouraging other in their research
and in researching of rare surname in particular.
More and more we learn about cases of refuting of "nobody survived" and the
genealogy as a tool for that.

Glad for you.
All the best,

Irit Shem-Tov

Moderator Note: What Irit is referring to is researcher testimonials.
They should be submitted to Peter Haas. His contact information is
found on the JewishGen infofile that lists researchers and references
at http://www.jewishgen.org/InfoFiles/Researchers.htm. Thanks.

A researcher in Kherson? #ukraine

Shalom,

I need to find a researcher to go through the records in Kherson
(Ukraine) to find information on Harry Bergart (1850 - 1889) and his
family. The people I have been referred to live many hundreds of miles
from Kherson (e.g. Lviv). Has anyone had recent experience with a local
person?

Thank you and be well,

(US) Kansas Supreme Court Adopts New Rules Affecting Access to Marriage Records #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Earlier this summer I posted on this discussion group about the revised
proposed Kansas Supreme Court Rules 106 and 108 which would restrict access
to Kansas marriage records. The Supreme Court adopted the two rules which
severely restrict access to the marriage records and redact information on
the marriage records >from the public view. The new rules become effective
October 1, 2015.

The two new rules may be accessed at:
http://www.kscourts.org/kansas-courts/supreme-court/orders/2015/2015SC82.pdf
(Rule 106)
and
http://www.kscourts.org/kansas-courts/supreme-court/orders/2015/2015SC83.pdf
(Rule 108)

Rule 106 states that marriage license documents are confidential and not
subject to disclosure. A marriage licensing document is a cover sheet
completed with the marriage license application and the document containing
the personal and statistical information of the Kansas Department of Health
and Environment and the marriage license. Disclosure of the information is
restricted to the person to whom the marriage license was issued and
selected personnel of the court, and Department of Health and Environment.
A "limited" marriage license record is publically available with certain
information redacted: Social Security Number, applicant's date or city of
birth, applicant's mother 's maiden name, and other confidential
information. Marriage license documents created before October 1, 2015 may
be closed in whole or in part by redaction dependent upon the discretion of
the chief justice of the judicial district or the applicant may petition to
have their marriage document closed.

Rule 108 calls for the destruction of the confidential cover sheet of the
marriage license application mentioned in Rule 106 within one year of its
issuance. It also adds marriage license applications to the requirement that
they may not be destroyed until they are reproduced. In other words the
original marriage record may be destroyed once the state reproduces it but
the confidential marriage cover sheet with information is destroyed.

Emigration from Germany to Palestine in 1933 #general

Liz Hanellin
 

Hello Jewish Genners,

I am looking for records regarding Ludwig LEVI (b. April 10, 1909), who emigrated
from Germany to Palestine in 1933.
According to what I learned, >from someone in Germany who has access to the
documents regarding the fate of the Jews of Mannheim, he left Germany on September
10, 1933. In Palestine, he worked first as a construction worker; was an auxiliary
policeman >from 1937-1939; served in the British Army >from 1939-1946; then later
worked again as a construction worker.

How would I go about tracing this information on the Israel (or British?) side?

As a matter of curiousity, I am curious about how this information came to be known
in Germany. If anyone has insight about this, I would also welcome it.

Finally, does anyone know whether the date of September 10, 1933 is of particular
significance >from a German or German Jewish perspective? A brother of Ludwig's
emmigrated to Luxembourg on the same date.

As always, thanks for any and all advice you may have.

Best,

Liz Hanellin
