(U.S.) Two additional resources for genealogists #general

Hello

Tried 4 times to put this in plain text - hope it works this time -

Found this link (subject line) for old newspaper articles >from 1860
-2013 related to our ancestors in Minnesota, Michigan and Wisconsin, and
a few in Virginia and other states - Articles mostly originated >from
Duluth newspapers.

It offers more than 5000 news articles in original format that involved
a Jewish name, births - weddings - obits - fancy parties - lawsuits etc.

This may help others

http://www.garon.us/newsindex.html (old newspaper articles)

to search for name - hit control and F and then type in name (usually
upper right hand corner)

For example, I found 26 articles on the BUBLEY name.

For those that may have roots in Chicago, I found the Chicago Jewish
Community Blue Book listing names, offices they held - charities they
were involved in - may help others in their research listing all their
officers etc.

Issue 123 of Genealo-J has just been published #france

Georges Graner <georges.graner@...>
 

Genealo-J, publication of the Jewish Genealogical Society of France,
Issue 123, Fall 2015 has just been published

In a paper on Jacob Lasry born in Rabat (Morocco) in 1795 and deceased
in Oran (Algeria) in 1869, Pascal Faustini explains the migration of his
family >from Spain, Morocco (Tetuan and Rabat) to Gilbraltar and Oran. He
was able to built the family trees of the Lasry, Bergel, Cabessa and
Pacificio families.

Elissa Rhais is the pseudonym of Rosine Baumendil, born on December 18th
1876 in Blida (Algeria) where she died on August 24, 1940. Joseph
Boumendil describes her life. Her destiny was exceptional for a woman
who came >from a very modest family. She became famous for her books
which she published in France but she fell into oblivion. Her works were
quite noteworthy yet she suffered intrigues during her life and even 40
years after her death. The author deals with her forebears and the
somewhat complex links between her real life and the characters of her
thirteen novels which can cast some light upon obscure aspects of her
biography. Our research enables us for the first time better to know
some of her relations.

Roland Smolar knew nothing whatever about his paternal grandparents
Meyer and Rachel. When his father Robert died the papers he kept taught
him that Meyer and Rachel were born in Sakiai and Wladislawow in
Lithuania respectively. A postcard dating >from 1945 (with its
translation) indicated that a part of Rachel's family remained in
Lithuania and was exterminated during the "Holocaust by bullets". The
author and Bernard Tsirkmann, a great-nephew of Rachel, decided to go in
search of the places where their grandparents had lived their childhood.
They relate here the journey done in July 2014. Bernard drove them >from
Vilnius, where they met the curators of the archives, to Wladislawow
(now called Kudirkos-Naumiestis), to Sakiai and Kaunas which was the
capital city of Lithuania during the first period of independence
between the two World Wars. Through a research in Wladislawow they found
the place where Rachel spent her childhood and met Isaac Glikas, the
only Jewish survivor. Other meetings at Kudirkos-Naumiestis and Kaunas
are described here. In Sakiai however where the Jews were a majority
before the war they found almost no trace of any Jewish life.

The last paper of this issue deals with Tunisian Jews. It is well known
that for many centuries two distinct Jewish communities coexisted in the
city of Tunis : the Twansa, who were genuine Tunisians and the Grana,
who were Italians, >from Portuguese and Spanish origin. After the
publication of three matrimonial registries of the Grana community in
Tunis by Robert Attal and Joseph Avivi, Gille Boulu and Alain Nedjar
make us known the discovery of two additional registers containing
marriage contracts of this community. Added to the previous records
these volumes number 3 (1812-1844) and 6 (1872-1881) including
respectively 429 and 234 different ketuboth now allow access to an
exceptional corpus of files going continuously >from 1788 to 1881. Boulu
and Nedjar present the contents of the two registers, collect statistics
on this community and give some examples of genealogy now made possible
in combination with other sources. A book sold on a subscription basis
is being published by the same authors and our Genealogical Society in
October 2015.

Place in Lithuania #general

Debbie Wetlaufer
 

The place of birth for an ancestor (born 1881) was named on one US
naturalization record as "Liukitiskin, Lithuania" and in a second
naturalization record as "Suktiskis, Lithuania". When I Google
Liukitiskin, it doesn't even come up with any suggestions. With
"Suktiskis," Google suggests "Kupi1kis"! Can anyone make a guess at
what this might refer to?

Many thanks,

(European Union) European Court of Justice Rules Data Transfer Between US and EU is Invalid #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Privacy advocates vs. First Amendment rights won in the European Court of
Justice (EUCJ) when the Court ruled on October 6 that the international
agreement permitting digital data transfer between the United States and the
European Union 28-member countries is invalid.

The decision found the data transfer agreement violates the privacy rights
of Europeans by exposing them to allegedly indiscriminate surveillance by
the U.S. government.

This is a major problem for companies such as Google, Facebook, Amazon and
Apple who collect and mine data >from European users but send it to their
home bases in the United States. It also affects any organization with
international operations that needs to transfer employee information such
as benefits or payroll online, and American companies that provide cloud
storage services for EU based companies.

More than 4,500 European and American companies will be required to treat
their information moved outside the EU with the same privacy protections
the data has within the EU. The cost for this disruption of business is
in the billions of dollars. The EUCJ ruling declared the data-transfer
agreement, known as "safe harbor" is immediately invalid. The ruling
permits data-privacy regulators in each of the 28 member countries to
evaluate how they move data >from the their countries to the United States.

As genealogists researching Europe rely on data found on search engines,
this decision affects the genealogist in their research opportunities. The
decision may be read at:
http://curia.europa.eu/jcms/upload/docs/application/pdf/2015-10/cp150117en.pdf
[or http://tinyurl.com/qcz4er4 - MODERATOR]

The "safe harbor" issue is one that has continued to be debated between the
EU members and was an issue in finalizing the Data Protection Regulations
which espouse "the right to be forgotten" and "the right to be erased". The
UK and Ireland are the EU countries that many US companies have based their
EU operations as they were presumed to be more "liberal" in their data
privacy determinations than countries such as Germany and France. The
Court's decision adversely affects the EU's proposal of a single market
known as "one stop shopping". Companies such as Facebook and Google may
decide to store their EU citizens data in the EU.

The EUCJ is the highest court in the EU and the decision may not be
appealed. Their ruling noted that the 500 million EU citizens did not
have the right to bring litigation in the US courts if they believed
their privacy had been infringed by the US government or American
companies. However, some are speculating there may be a torrent of
litigation before the individual EU countries data protection agencies.

The case before the EUCJ started with Max Schrems, an Austrian citizen, who
litigated against Facebook when he accused Facebook of compiling its users'
personal data in violation of Austrian and EU legislation. Mr. Schrems'
Facebook data is transferred >from Facebook's Irish subsidiary (whose EU
headquarters are in Ireland) to servers in the United States where the
information is processed. He first brought suit in Ireland against the
Irish Data Protection Commissioner stating that Facebook transfers the data
to the US. When he lost there, the High Court of Ireland then referred the
case to the EUCJ.

The EUCJ decision was foreshadowed when one of the advocate generals
announced his non-binding opinion two weeks ago, stating he found the law
and practices of the US offer no real protection about the data that is
transferred to the USA, and do not offer EU citizens adequate protection or
legal recourse if the online data is misused. Mr. Schrems is suing
Facebook in an Austrian court in a separate civil class-action suit.

This decision continues with the debate between the US adherence of First
Amendment rights of free speech vs. the EU priority of individual privacy
prevailing, and the trend by EU courts stating their "right to be forgotten"
requirements are global to search engines - not just within the EU.

For Sniatyn (Galicia) Researchers #poland

Mark Halpern
 

Dear Sniatyn Researchers:

Many of you may know that most of the Sniatyn Jewish vital records were
destroyed during World War I. Maybe your search has bogged down.
JRI-Poland has some good news.

Marriages >from 1905 through 1914 are now available as are a group of
re-created births and marriages covering years 1863 through 1914. These
re-created records were recorded after World War I when Jewish citizens
required proof of birth and marriage documents that were destroyed
during the War. These re-created documents do not cover nearly all the
records that were destroyed, but, if a re-created document exists, it
may contain more information than the original document.

In addition to these two collections of Sniatyn record indices,
JRI-Poland also has access to a third collection.

If you are interested, please contact me privately.

As with all of JRI-Poland's town projects, interested researchers are
the ones who fund the project with their contributions. With a
contribution of $100 or more, you can qualify to receive these indices
in Excel format before the indices are placed online. To make a
contribution, please go to http://www.jri-poland.org/support.htm and be
sure to apply your contribution to "AGAD-Sniatyn."

On October 2 I posted about the change in my posting relevant to pending
legislation and regulations. There is no change regarding my final
legislative and regulatory postings. Every month I will be posting a
listing of the IAJGS Records Access Alert topics >from the previous month
for you to see the variety of issues -- some were posted on this
discussion group as they were final edicts, but advocacy, and pending
legislation and regulations were not on the discussion group -- all
postings are included below. Any postings that had a time limit for
access, such as free access that has expired are not included below.

To be on top of what is happening I encourage to register for the
Records Access Alerts to receive the information in a timely manner.

If you are interested in any of the following items, please register
for the IAJGS Records Access Alert and look at them in the archives.

To register for the IAJGS Records Access Alert go to:

and follow the instructions to enter your email address, full name

receive an email response that you have to reply to, or the

you register you may access the archives at:
http://lists.iajgs.org/mailman/private/records-access-alerts/

This is not a daily announcement list. Depending on what happens
worldwide, there may be no postings for several days and other
times there may be several in one day.

These are listed alphabetically not chronologically.
