The Co-Chairs of the 36th Annual IAJGS Conference wish all of you a
happy Passover. Whether you are spending the seders with family or
friends who are just like family, reminiscing about seders of the past
will probably be heard around your seder table.

But, what do you do with those stories, and how do you get them stored
or filed? How do you fit the disconnected pieces of your tree together?
And speaking of which, what about all those brick walls?

Now is the time to take advantage of early pricing to attend the
conference that can help you with all those issues and more. The annual
IAJGS conference is the largest annual genealogy conference that focuses
on uniquely Jewish research and brick walls while at the same time
helping attendees to learn and master best practices of genealogical
research, recording and reporting.

This year, we offer 230+ conference sessions, evening entertainment, a
film festival, and more, all in beautiful Seattle. Join us 7-12 August
2016. If you can't join us, consider registering for our LIVE! streaming
of over 50 sessions, and the audio recordings of almost all our sessions.

Please take this opportunity to visit our website
(http://www.iajgs2016.org/ )and register before April 30 at 11:59 PM
Pacific Daylight Time, when the early pricing disappears! You'll still
be able to register after that, but the price goes up!

Looking forward to seeing you in Seattle

JewishGen Passover Companion #yiddish

Dear JewishGenners,

The first Passover celebration in history took place more than 3,300
years ago, marking the first anniversary of the rescue and redemption
of the Jewish people >from Egypt. Since that time, this holiday,
particularly the Seder ritual, has become a mainstay of the Jewish
people, and something that brings families together in unique ways.

At its core, the Seder stresses the importance of family, and helps
preserve Jewish history for future generations - which is what
JewishGen is dedicated to doing each and every day.

With this in mind, we are pleased to share our "JewishGen Passover
Companion," which is a collection of historical and inspirational
vignettes about Passover that are contained throughout JewishGen.

We hope that anyone reading this material will gain a better, deeper
and more personal understanding of the lives our ancestors lived,
which will, in turn, help us ensure that our own children,
grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, will likewise feel connected
and inspired by the great history of their ancestors - the entirety
of the Jewish people.

There are two ways to read the JewishGen Passover Companion. You
can download it as a PDF by visiting:

This week's Yizkor book spotlight on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

The Yizkor book excerpt for this week is >from the shtetl of tepan, which had
been part of Poland and is now in northwest Ukraine, just south of the border
of Belarus. It is an account by Yonah Rassis, who had been imprisoned
in a forced labor camp in Kostopol shortly before the annihilation of the
community in 1942, and who, along with hundreds of others, decided to escape.

Search for Ship that Carried Grandfather to America #general

Lawrence Weintraub
 

Hello All:

After considerable effort, I obtained a copy of my grandfather's Alien
Registration Form >from 1940. It contains very interesting information
but the piece that excited me the most was that he arrived in New York
as a 22 year old >from Russia on a ship in 1903. This came as a
surprise because I had the family in the Boston area until 1931 when
he and his immediate family moved to New York. So far, my excitement
has been somewhat muted by my inability to find the ship, passenger
list, etc. His name was Sam EDELSTEIN though the form said he entered
the country under the name of Sam ADELSTEIN. He claimed to arrive in
NYC on February 22, 1903 aboard the S.S. Patricka. I can't find such
a ship though I was thinking the Patricia was a possibility. I am
requesting the help of the nautical mavens out there to help steer me
to the correct information.

Thank you.

Platz/Plac from Delyatyn #general

Shelley Mitchell
 

Dear friends -

I have hit a major brick wall. It seems I have an impossible task.
My great aunt Perl TERNER-MOLDAUER of Kolomea/Kolomyja married Isaac PLATZ of
Delyatyn in 1910. When the Soviets reported on the murders in Delyatyn
during the Holocaust, they listed Isaac PLAC and his brothers who owned a
hotel-spa. With Isaac, they listed three females. No names were given
for any females. I assume one was his wife, Perl. But they had 7 children,
including a son named Samuel, a dentist. If any of the others escaped,
they could have gone anyplace in the world and might not have known much
about their TERNER-KONIGSBERG connection in America at the time.
On the off chance that at least one child or their family escaped,
I'm asking you to contact me if you have any information about the
family of this couple.
