Seeking Publicity Volunteers #warsaw #poland

Groll, Avraham
 

We are seeking volunteers to use their creative public relations
skills to help promote and publicize JewishGen's important work.
Volunteers will assist in the publication and distribution of a
monthly e-Newsletter, post periodic announcements throughout the
month on our website, discussion groups and social media pages,
and help with our stewardship efforts with current donors.
Volunteers can work >from their own locations. We expect a time
commitment of 2-5 hours per month, though this will vary
depending on the time of year.

Please contact me via email (AGroll@JewishGen.org) if you have
experience and would be interested to learn more about
volunteering.

Thank you in advance.

Cemetery Photo Request Volunteers #poland #warsaw

Nolan Altman
 

We commend all the volunteers who answer the call to take photos in
specific cemeteries for researchers who live far away. As long as
you're there, why not consider taking photos of the entire section?

JewishGen's JOWBR database would greatly appreciate if you would
consider taking the extra time to photograph the rest of the stones
in the section you're visiting and submit them to us. As far as the
template goes, if you don't have the time or are not comfortable with
Excel, we will find volunteers to create the standard excel templates.

Please help us grow the JOWBR database, especially the many under-
represented cemeteries in some of the largest U.S. cities. For more
information, please feel free to contact me at NAltman@JewishGen.org

Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois Networking Meeting

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois motto is 'Members helping
members since 1981.' On that note, the Sunday, Jan. 31, 2016, meeting of
the JGSI will be an open meeting devoted to a variety of genealogical
research opportunities. The meeting will take place >from 12:30 to 3:30
p.m. at Temple Beth-El, 3610 Dundee Road, Northbrook, Ill.

Walter Reed, a Holocaust lecturer and writer who had been a hidden
child, was originally scheduled to be the speaker at the Jan. 31
meeting, but he passed away on Jan. 13.

We are saddened by his death. In his memory, we will make progress on
our research at an open networking meeting. JGSI members and guests are
invited to bring their genealogical research goals and queries, notes
and computers to be ready to do research among friends. Our volunteers
will be available at the JGSI help desk and library.

The JGSI meeting facilities at Temple Beth-El will open at 12:30 p.m.
for those who want to use or borrow genealogy library materials, get
help with genealogy websites or ask genealogical questions.

At the JGSI help desk, member volunteers will access online databases
and answer genealogical questions one-on-one for members and visitors.

The JGSI library has more than 800 volumes of interest to Jewish family
historians. Many are available for borrowing by JGSI members for a
limited time. All are available for perusing during this special
meeting.

New Jersey research #general

bernerfolk
 

Seems like others are finding NJ research as challenging as
I so I'd like to share two resources I've only recently found.

FamilySearch.org has added to their NJ state census collection
over the past year or two; some are complete records, others index only.
Here's a link to the full NJ collection:
https://familysearch.org/search/catalog/results?count=20&placeId=346&query=%2Bplace%3A%22United%20States%2C%20New%20Jersey%22&subjectsOpen=632392-50
(tiny url http://tinyurl.com/gltdmbl)

A variety of records, including vitals, are can be ordered directly
from the NJ State Archive by mail or online. Indexes are online for
earlier periods and for those that aren't online they'll do a one or
two year search for you.

Warsaw Pogrom #general

Marilyn Robinson
 

Hi Genners,
I was told that my ggrandfather, Morris REICHMAN died in a pogrom with
his second wife (name unknown). The family, as far as I know, came >from
Warsaw/ Warsaw area. Based on the age of his orphaned two sons >from his
second marriage, I am assuming that he may have died in the 1881 Warsaw
pogrom.

Are there any published lists available that noted who died or were
injured in the Warsaw pogrom? I tried to find the Warsaw Provincial
Gazette but was unable to locate copies for that time period.

Regards,
Marilyn Robinson
