Help deciphering Hebrew abbreviations on tombstones #general

Carol Hoffman
 

I'm hoping someone can help me with translating abbreviations I have
found on tombstones in Lithuania. I have the abbreviations in Hebrew
characters and can send the short list to anyone who might be able to
help me with that. The challenge is not the dates but the
abbreviations describing the person or his/her situation.

Please write to me privately.

Thank you.

Genealogist Ron Arons to give two presentations at JGSI Sept. 25 meeting #general

events@...
 

Expert Jewish genealogist and author Ron Arons will deliver two
informative presentations at the Sunday, Sept. 25, 2016, meeting of the
Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois, starting at 1 p.m. at Temple
Beth-El, 3610 Dundee Road, Northbrook, Ill.

The titles of his talks at this special meeting will be "Putting the
Flesh on the Bones" and "Evaluating Evidence: Asking a mini-Minnie
Question."

Ron Arons calls "Putting the Flesh on the Bones" his "bread and butter
talk" that he has given for 15 years. Through two related examples he
explains how one can piece together ancestors' lives by collecting as
much documentation about them as possible as well as by looking at the
environments where they lived. The process he describes can enable a
genealogist to go beyond the names, dates, and places commonly
associated with genealogical research.

With his other presentation, "Evaluating Evidence: Asking a mini-Minnie
Question," Arons explains that researching the lives of our ancestors is
a big task, but to evaluate evidence, one needs to examine the bits and
pieces of our research.

When he found the bigamy case of his great-grandfather Isaac Spier, he
wanted to know what happened to Spier's second wife, Minnie Ott. Arons
will present the basic constructs of analyzing documents and evidence,
i.e., the genealogical proof standard, pointing to the research
question: How many times did Minnie Ott marry? In this presentation, he
will apply the evaluation theory to the documents he located toward the
resolution of this question.

Arons has given more than 250 presentations internationally, and has
authored three books, "The Jews of Sing Sing: Gotham Gangsters and
Gonuvim"; "WANTED!: U.S. Criminal Records Sources & Research
Methodology," and "Mind Maps for Genealogy: Enhanced Research Planning,
Correlation, and Analysis."

Illinois schedule of future events can be seen at

Searching TENENBAUM in Mokrany #general

WALTER ELIAS
 

I am looking for any information about the TENENBAUM family >from the
Shtetl of Mokrany about 16km east of Malaryta in present day Belarus.
I am interested also in how large the pre-war community was, the
percentage of Jewish population, any WWII history, if there is a
Yizkor book and whether there are living descendants of TENENBAUMs
from Mokrany families who might get in touch with me. I have posted
this on the Belarus SIG also.
Thank you.

Re: 38th Royal Fusiliers Question #general

Dear Group,

For those with possible relatives in that battalion, see the ship
manifest of the SS Saturina, sailing >from Glasgow on 11 October 1919.
The ship arrived in Quebec on 20 October 1919. Find an Abraham Keller,
age 22, >from Russia. Interestingly, the entire page of passengers on the
manifest list shows the last place of residence as the Royal British
Army. It lists Abraham as part of the 38th Battalion.

How do I find out the Unit of the 38th Royal Fusiliers in which my
Great Grandfather served, his regimental number was J.518. There's a
war diary on Ancestry which is for the 2nd Battalion 29th Division, in
the Gallipoli Section. I don't think it's relevant to my GGF as I know
he was shipped out to Egypt and served in Palestine but it would help
to find out more.
I suggest checking out two sources. The first is the British Army
Service Records 1914-1919 available (for a small payment) on
findmypast.com. You may be able to find his scanned discharge
documents, containing a full service record, on this site. I would
also contact the archives of Beit Hagdudim (Legion House) in
Avichail, Israel, which has records on individual Legion soldiers.
I should point out that the 38th Battalion Royal Fusiliers was
actually the name of the unit, within the larger British Army regiment
called the Royal Fusiliers. Historically, the 38th Battalion was one of
a group of 4 battalions collectively known as the Jewish Legion. The
38th was mostly British Jews, but the Legion grew to include the 39th
Battalion (mostly Americans and Canadians), and the 40th Battalion
(Palestinian Jews)

The film Denial - Did the Holocaust Occur #general

Tony Hausner
 

This is a one time posting to make sure everyone knows about this
most important film.

See http://www.bleeckerstreetmedia.com/denial for more information
and the trailer. Trailer can be seen at
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYcx43AmAyY

"The whole world knows that the Holocaust occurred. Now she needs to
prove it."

This film officially opens in NYC and LA on 9/30. In 10 other cities
on 10/7 and more cities on 10/14. The schedule is at the Bleeker
Street site above.

Given that Holocaust denial is such a major part of history, I felt it
important that everyone know. I apologize if others have already posted.

I have scheduled a preview in Bethesda, MD on 10/6 and have sold out one
theater of 240 persons. We are looking into whether we will setup
arrangements for another theater.

I have lots more info about the film, relevant literature, interviews,
film reviews etc if interested.
