educators. For details, look under the PROGRAM tab on the Conference

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The main Conference will start Sunday morning at 10:15 with the first of
some 184 presentations. Sunday will also include the popular SHARE Fair,
and the Exhibit Hall will be open. On Sunday afternoon at 2:45, our
Keynote Speaker, Daniel Goldmark, Director of the Center for Popular Music
Studies at Case Western Reserve University, will describe how Jews
contributed to the evolution of rock and roll. That will prepare us for
the Sunday evening reception at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, just a few
blocks >from the hotel. The "Rock Hall" will be open exclusively for us,
and heavy (kosher) hors d'oevres will be served.

In addition to the lectures, there will be 11 SIG luncheons during the
week, many featuring speakers >from the European areas covered by the SIGs.
There will also be 11 "Breakfasts with the Experts" that provide the
opportunity to sit down in a small group (maximum 25) with top experts in
many facets of Jewish genealogy.

The program on Sunday through Wednesday will kick off with workshops for
beginners (and those who feel that their skills need some refreshing).
They will be led by certified genealogist Dr. Rhoda Miller, Ed.D., who
will provide suggestions on how to get started, where to find resources,
and how to organize what you are doing. Dr. Miller will also cover how to
get the most out of the Conference for those attending their first one.

There are over 35 Birds of a Feather (BOF) meetings along with additional
SIG meetings. Eleven computer workshops will be offered, limited to 25
attendees each. Participants will need to bring a laptop computer with
Internet access.

Evening sessions will include the annual JewishGen gathering, which will
introduce some major changes coming at that organization. Subsequent
evenings will feature the Pamela Weisberger Memorial Lecture, the ever
popular Jewpardy! game show night, and the Gala Banquet, featuring Michael
Krasny, well known to NPR and KQED-FM San Francisco listeners. Krasny, a
native Clevelander, will discuss the evolution of Jewish humor, the
subject of his most recent book "Let There Be Laughter."

During the daytime hours, there will be as many as nine sessions at any
one time >from which to choose. For most sessions, audio recordings
together with the speakers' slides will be available for purchase prior to
and during the Conference.

This year, there will be no video recording or streaming, so if you want
to enjoy the best talks, you need to come to Cleveland. See you there this
summer!

JOWBR Grows Past the 3.4 Million Record Mark!

JewishGen is proud to announce its latest update to the JOWBR
(JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial Registry) database. The JOWBR
database can be accessed at www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/
If you're a new JOWBR user, we recommend that you visit our screencast
page at www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Screencasts/ and take a
look at the first two explanatory screencasts.

This update, adds approximately 116,600 new records and 29,800 new
photos. The database is adding and/or updating 430 cemeteries. This
update brings JOWBR's holdings to 3.45 million records >from close to
8,000 cemeteries / cemetery sections representing 128 countries!

Please note, this update only includes submissions that were made
through last November 30th. Anything that was submitted after that will
be in the June pre-Conference update. If you have new material to submit,
please do so by May 31st to be included in the next update.

Once again, donors for this update include a mix of individuals,
Jewish genealogical societies, historical societies and museums. We
appreciate all our donor's submissions and the transliteration work done
by a faithful group of JewishGen volunteers.

Significant additions to JOWBR by country include:

. Argentina - approximately 11,300 records >from new and existing
cemeteries.
. Brazil - approximately 7,800 records >from 3 Rio de Janeiro
cemeteries
. Canada - updated records and 4,250 new and/or improved photos from
Montreal area cemeteries

Please see www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm for a
complete listing of all cemeteries in JOWBR.

I want to particularly thank Eric Feinstein who has been finding and
gaining permission to add many non-US records >from Germany, France and
under-represented countries. Eric's group of volunteers includes Sandra
Bennet, Lyn Bos, Malka Chosnek, George Goldschmied, Ann Meddin Hellmann,
Maurice Kessler, Hans Nord, Marilyn Shalks, Deborah Ross, Molly Mark
Strauss, and Suzanne Tarica. In addition, a big thank you to our volunteer
transliterators, led by Gilberto Jugend, without whom we would not be able
to add the information >from some very difficult to read photos.

We appreciate all the work our donors have done and encourage you to
make additional submissions. Whether you work on a cemetery / cemetery
section individually or consider a group project for your local Society,
temple or other group, it's your submissions that help grow the JOWBR
database and make it possible for researchers and family members to find
answers they otherwise might not. Please also consider other organizations
you may be affiliated with that may already have done cemetery indexing that
would consider having their records included in the JOWBR database.

Can you help with the SCHOENWALTER family #germany

Lin Herz
 

Dear GerSIG Friends,
In my family tree there are two people who have the surname
SCHOENWALTER. We know very little about them .

Do you have anyone in your family with this surname? My 3x great
grandmother was Resele SCHOENWALTER. I recently found some documents
that indicate her real name may have been Rosalia, Rosalie, or Rosa
SCHOENWALTER. She died in Markt Berolzheim, Bavaria, Germany. She was
married to Emanuel HERZ >from Markt Berolzheim.
We dont know where she was born. According to a family tree
drawn by my grandfather in 1926, her father's name was Hirsch
and her mother's name was Gitel, before surnames. Her husband
was born circa 1779-1789. They had children between
The other SCHOENWALTER is Siegfried who married into the family. He was
a cousin's grandfather. We know his father's name was
Abraham and his mother Babette and he was born in Markt Berolzheim. She
had children between 1810 and at least 1826.

On the Jewish gen family finder I wrote to the one other family who has
German SCHOENWALTERs. They have not signed in to JGFF since 2004, but
I'm trying to be hopeful. but - Their Schoenwalters are
from Markt Berolzheim too(!) and Elligen. Thank you so much.

Searching Rozenbaum/Pankel from Pruzany #belarus

M Bekken <mbekken@...>
 

I have been trying to find records for the parents of Jonah ROZENBAUM and
Syma PANKEL (and alternate spellings). They lived in Pruzana, and had 4 children,
Tzvi, Schmuel, Efraim, and Jacob. The kids were born between 1890 and 1901. Jonah
would therefore likely be born around 1870 and Syma before 1875. Any information
would be appreciated!

Meeting IGRA, Givatayim, Israel, April 30, 2019, Culture of Cooperation - Between Degania and Ein Harod #general

Hinda Solomon
 

Israel Genealogy Research Association The lecture is in Hebrew
Lecturer: Dr. Avigayil Paz Yeshayahu
In a fascinating lecture, Dr. Abigail Paz will discuss the first attempts at
cooperative settlement in the Land of Israel during the Second Aliyah (1904-1914,
Ottoman rule) and Third Aliyah (1919-1923, British Mandate) periods. Beyond the
chronological difference, there are sociological and ideological differences that
characterize each Alias.

Israel Genealogy Research Association The lecture is in Hebrew
Lecturer: Dr. Avigayil Paz Yeshayahu
In a fascinating lecture, Dr. Abigail Paz will discuss the first attempts at
cooperative settlement in the Land of Israel during the Second Aliyah (1904-1914,
Ottoman rule) and Third Aliyah (1919-1923, British Mandate) periods. Beyond the
chronological difference, there are sociological and ideological differences that
characterize each Alias.

Need Hungarian Translations #hungary

George Moskowitz
 

I am reposting the first five copies of handed-down Moskowitz family =
history originally written on scraps of paper. I have already received =
help with the Yiddish and Hebrew portions, but there are also notations =
in Hungarian which the original translators were not familiar with, so =
therefore I am posting them on Hungarian-Sig and hope that someone will =
come to my aid. My family, Moskovits/Moskovics/Moskowitz, mostly came =
from the Ungvar, Nasdad, Kosice regions. The help I received on the =
previous postings was most appreciated and I am extremely grateful for =
any help with the new ones.
