Israel Consul General to attend film screening at IAJGS conference #belarus

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

There are so many exciting things happening at this summer's conference.
We are thrilled to announce that Israel's consul general Ravit Baer
will present the August 11 screening of the acclaimed Israeli movie "The
Dove Flyer." Ms. Baer, a career diplomat in the Israeli foreign
service, served in Europe and Africa before becoming Israel's Consul
General to the Pacific Northwest.

"The Dove Flyer" will be shown as part of a Jewish film festival
that has been curated for the conference by leading Jewish film scholar
and teacher of cinema Dr. Eric Goldman. The film is based on Eli Amir's
blockbuster novel of the same name, brings to life the fragile, doomed
world of the Baghdad Jewish community in 1950.

It is one of many films in the festival of 33 motion pictures that
celebrate Sephardic Jewry, a major track of this summer's conference.
Other highlights of the Seattle conference include the opening night
keynote address by Dr. Devin Naar and the banquet address by Judy
Russell, a Certified Genealogist and Certified Genealogical Lecturer.

In addition, as at previous conferences, key lectures and presentations
will be made available through LIVE! a real-time video streaming service
after up to 90 days after the conference. It's not too late to register

We're looking forward to seeing so many of you in Seattle August 7-12.

German ViewMate Translation Request #galicia

Edward Rueda <edwardarueda@...>
 

Greetings,

I've posted a document in German for which I need a translation. It is
on ViewMate at the following address:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM49324

These are snippets >from different pages of the Lemberg Evidence
Books, the tax documents that our group discussed lately. The info
is >from two columns, "Namen" (Names) and "Gewerbe" (Trade). I can
read the names, as they're written in Latin script, but the "trades" are
written in Kurrentschrift, the old German style of handwriting. The
last names in these entries are BERGTRAUM, FINGERHUT,
SCHREIBER, SILBER, and TAFEL.

I would love to know the German words and their translation in these
"Gewerbe" columns, so that I can start to read these documents
myself.

A link right above the image will help you see a larger version. The
writing is pretty small.

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.
Thank you all for your help!

Debica Holocaust Era Records #general

Eden Joachim <esjoachim@...>
 

JRI-Poland has already indexed the Debica records which were mentioned by Tony
Kahane in his message titled New Holocaust-period records on the All Galicia
Database.

Comparing the information in the JRI-Poland excel file to the Gesher Galicia
database indicates quite a few differences: dates, locations to name only two.

If you are interested in the Debica records, contact me directly. In
addition to the Holocaust era executions records, we indexed Industrial
Permits and some School records >from 1905-1938.

Iani in Israel #general

Rochelle Gershenow
 

On the Yad Vashem database I found a Page of Testimony (POT) for a David
Chaikin, son of Leivik, which was submitted by his daughter, Pnina Iani, in
1955. David is listed as having five children. Pnina (listed as surname
Khana) also submitted a POT for her sister, Lea. As there is no POT for her
mother, Frida (nee Yanovitsky) I assume Frida either died before the war or
survived. At the time of submission Pnina was living in Afikin, Israel. I
have been trying to track the children of Leivik Chaikin >from his first
marriage. I would like to contact someone >from the Iani family who might
have more information on the Chaikin family. If anyone knows someone from
that family or has other relevant information, please let me know.

New York City has closed down our access to the death index. The Health Department

If you tried the death and got a not found letter it is possible that the Health

other differences versus what you said on the request or a simple oversight. Or it
is very possible she died outside the confines of New York City. Since Queens is

Dear Cousins,

On behalf of a friend, Rose Raymen is looking for a death certificate for somebody
who died in Queens, one of the boroughs of New York City. She said that the New

I answer - a death certificate >from 1972 isn't old enough to be at New York City's
Municipal Archives - death certificates >from 1949 and afterward are at the N.Y.C.
Department of Health. However, about two months ago, the Department of Health
required that the New York Public Library, which had publicly available indices

microfilms >from the shelves over privacy concerns, so there's no way to easily get
the death certificate number or make sure there were no spelling mistakes in
recording the name. The only way to get the record is >from the Department of

Israel Consul General to attend film screening at IAJGS conference #general

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

There are so many exciting things happening at this summer's conference.
We are thrilled to announce that Israel's consul general Ravit Baer
will present the August 11 screening of the acclaimed Israeli movie "The
Dove Flyer." Ms. Baer, a career diplomat in the Israeli foreign
service, served in Europe and Africa before becoming Israel's Consul
General to the Pacific Northwest.

"The Dove Flyer" will be shown as part of a Jewish film festival
that has been curated for the conference by leading Jewish film scholar
and teacher of cinema Dr. Eric Goldman. The film is based on Eli Amir's
blockbuster novel of the same name, brings to life the fragile, doomed
world of the Baghdad Jewish community in 1950.

It is one of many films in the festival of 33 motion pictures that
celebrate Sephardic Jewry, a major track of this summer's conference.
Other highlights of the Seattle conference include the opening night
keynote address by Dr. Devin Naar and the banquet address by Judy
Russell, a Certified Genealogist and Certified Genealogical Lecturer.

In addition, as at previous conferences, key lectures and presentations
will be made available through LIVE! a real-time video streaming service
after up to 90 days after the conference. It's not too late to register
for the conference or to purchase LIVE! Visit the conference website,
www.iajgs2016.org , for more information about all aspects of the
conference.

We're looking forward to seeing so many of you in Seattle August 7-12.
