Thank you to Tony for sharing this.

My grandfather was interned in the Onchan camp >from Jul 1940-Sep 1941;
his letters to my grandmother are also at the USHMM and I've been
building a website with them:

http://greenealogy.greenehouse.com/Bissinger/WW2/letters/1

If there are other descendants of "enemy alien" detainees on the Isle
of Man who would be interested in forming a SIG and sharing
information, please be in touch.

Thanks,

Re: DNA testing in France #dna

Roberta Berman stated her U.S. family has had their DNA testing through
FTDNA. Which company should she use for her French relatives? Answer:
Continue using FTDNA. I have had them send kits to a number of countries
(even Ukraine) with no problem. By having your entire family with one
provider, it is easier to match results.

When testing people in Hungary and Romania (using FTDNA), I have the
kit mailed to me, then I mail it to the subject myself. I "re-package"
it, enclosing a return envelope (addressed to me). When I receive the
kit, I then mail it to FTDNA. This also allows me to fill out the form
for them (most of them do not speak English). If they would like you to
manage the kit for them, you can add your e-mail address on the top
line, with theirs below it. This will make you the "primary" e-mail,
which lets you recover a lost password, etc.

All the DNA testing for my family (all Jewish) in the US was done
through FTDNA.
I would like to test two people who married into my family and live in
Paris. They are not Jewish, but think they have Jewish ancestors.
Which company would you suggest and are there any problems sending kits
to Paris? Or perhaps there are other DNA companies or affiliates?

All the best,
Roberta Berman

Re: Help deciphering Hebrew abbreviations on tombstones #general

Shalom,
This is an answer to Carol Hoffman's mail, but I think it can be
useful to all the genners.
There is a site http://www.kizur.co.il/home.php (in Hebrew) very
useful to understand the meaning of Rashei Tevot (abbreviations).
It's easy to use, and I always find what I need.

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.

The film Denial - Did the Holocaust Occur #galicia

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 set up
arrangements for another theater.

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

JGS of Maryland Sept 25 program--NEW LOCATION #general

Susan Steeble
 

Jewish Genealogy Society of Maryland
Speaker: Joyce Dreyfuss
Title: "How to Protect and Store Old Documents, Books, and Photographs"
Date and Time: Sunday, September 25, 2016, 1:30 p.m.
Location: Pikesville Library's meeting room, 1301 Reisterstown Rd
Pikesville, MD

PLEASE NOTE THE NEW LOCATION!

Please join us on Sunday, September 25, 2016, at 1:30 p.m. at the
Pikesville Library's meeting room, for our next program, "How to
Protect and Store Old Documents, Books, and Photographs," presented by
Joyce Dreyfuss.

In this program, Joyce Dreyfuss, a professional Book and Paper
Conservator, will discuss: When did paper ingredients change from
linen and papyrus to wood pulp? Why does acid matter? How should rare
materials be stored? What kind of environment do we need? and How
should we handle a rare or delicate object? She will also provide a
hands-on demonstration.

Joyce Dreyfuss is currently a freelance Book and Paper Conservator to
both museums and private clients. The field comprises hands-on
craftsmanship with intellectual rigor and education. In 1978-1979, she
apprenticed with Mr. Johannes Hyltoft of Denmark at the Book
Conservation Lab for The Smithsonian Institution rare book libraries.
Many people are not aware that The Smithsonian has several small rare
book libraries with priceless collections of everything >from Leonardo
DaVinci's anatomical drawings to rare stamps >from the Soviet Union to
Sigmund Freud's collected letters. In 1980-1981, she was invited to
work on Holocaust art work >from the concentration camps at Yad Vashem
Museum in Israel. She then returned to The Smithsonian Institution,
where she worked under Mr. Hyltoft until 1987. Subsequently, she moved
to Baltimore and began to freelance.

The program is free for paid members and $5 for non-members (applied
to membership fee when a visitor joins JGSMD) after their first
meeting. Refreshments will be available. Please check our web site at
www.jgsmd.org for late updates and for the time, location, and program
of future meetings.
