Thanks to Shulamit for the link to this very interesting radio program. It is
the first time I heard it although it was originally aired in 2013. I remember
the Cosmo Restaurant so well as I worked at Swiss Cottage Library for over 30
years and would sometimes have lunch there. I recall some of the characters
mentioned and also their faces and also the waiters who were just as
interesting to observe as the customers. I doubt if they would remember me as
I was just a lunchtime observer although I should imagine most of the regular
customers are no longer around as they were generally getting on a bit. It was
my job to call on people for non returned items and I had the opportunity to
meet many of the local community in their homes. One I vividly remember meeting
in the early 1980's, was a very elderly gentleman, Peter Bornstein who I spent
a long time talking to about his playing the violin in a quartet with Albert
Einstein in pre war Germany. He showed me pictures of them playing together and
also of him playing the violin on tour with Isadora Duncan dancing. He said
that Einstein could not count, that is musically. and would always come in at
the wrong moment. It was a great joke that they shared as he knew Einstein well
as a regular member of their musical quartet. When it closed up some of the
crowd who used to frequent the Cosmo then went to the Swiss Cottage Library,
which is a huge modern building just down the road and used it as a meeting
place and I would often see their faces in deep discussion at the library.
Time moves on but for me that particular space in Finchley road will always
be reserved for the Cosmo and its customers.

JGSCT February Program Additional Information #general

Resending because I neglected to include the speaker's bio on the original post

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Connecticut presents "Jewish Genealogical
Research in Ukraine" on Sunday, February 19, 2017 at 1:30 pm at Temple Sinai,
41 West Hartford Road, Newington, CT 06111.
This program is free and open to the public.

Ms. Diamond discusses various strategies used to get documents >from Ukraine:
hiring private researchers, crowdsourcing research for specific towns, and
utilizing the Family History Library's resources. Many of these strategies also
apply to much of Eastern Europe. The talk includes demonstrations of the wide
variety of document types available for different parts of Ukraine (including
those parts formerly in the Russian Empire, Austro-Hungarian Empire and Poland),
allowing you to both trace your family back generations and to gain an
understanding of the people they were.

Lara Diamond is President of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Maryland (JGSMD)
and has been researching her family for 25 years, since she was too young to
have a driver's license and had to rely on her mother as a chauffeur. She has
traced all branches of her family back to Europe and most multiple generations
back in Europe. She blogs about her mostly Eastern European research at
http://larasgenealogy.blogspot.com.

JGS of Michigan Program - Lessons in Jewish DNA with Israel Pickholtz - February 2 at 7pm #general

Adina Lipsitz
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Michigan
is pleased to welcome Israel Pickholtz:
Lessons in Jewish DNA - One Man's Successes
and What He Learned On the Journey
***
The hottest topic in genealogy in recent years has been genetics and
many thousands of genealogists have ordered DNA tests. Most of those
haven't a clue what to do with their results.

The situation is more complicated among Jews, who have married "within
the tribe" for hundreds of years, thus ensuring that everyone is
related to everyone else, multiple times. Marrying within a closed
community -- "endogamy" -- has barely been addressed by the non-Jewish
genetic genealogy community.

This presentation, as in the speaker's book 'ENDOGAMY: One Family, One
People,' does not bring a "how to" approach, as every family is
different. The speaker prefers a "how I did it" approach,
demonstrating the successes he has had in his own families and the
general lessons which are applicable to all genetic genealogy
research.

His goal is to inspire his listeners and readers to say, "I can do this!"

About the Speaker

Pittsburgh-born, living in Israel since 1973. My personal research
includes single-surname research in Galicia (formerly Austria, now
Ukraine) as well as my families >from Slovakia, Poland, Belarus,
Hungary and later in the US, UK and Israel. >from there I developed
skills relating to more general Jewish genealogy, including Holocaust
research.

I have participated in grave translation projects, searches for
missing relatives and Holocaust-era insurance claims, as well as
traditional genealogy research using European, American and Israeli
sources.

My most frequent assignments >from Israeli sources involve locating and
photographing graves, locating living people, Mandatory Citizenship
records, records for Galician residents in the 1920s and 1930s,
inheritance matters and Holocaust research.

I have lectured IAJGS Conferences on Jewish Genealogy in the United
States, as well as other subjects in Israel.

I have served on the Board of the Israel Genealogical Society, as
Secretary of Gesher Galicia and as Town Leader for JRI-Poland.

I have recently taken my family research deep into the field of DNA
and am prepared to consult with clients on the subject.

My great great grandfather' (David)s brother Joseph, married the daughter
of the Admo"r of Lechovitz, Rabbi Aharon and Pearl. Pearl, I believe, was
the daughter of the Admo"r of Stolin and/or Karlin. I am not sure of David
and Joseph's family name but there is a presumption that it was ROSENBAUM.
David's children went under the name SCHECHTER as per their profession.

Does anyone have biographical information on Joseph's parents and/or

Russian memorial books ("kniga pamyati") #general

Miriam Bulwar David-Hay
 

Last week, I posted a question (well, several questions really) asking
whether anyone knows how or where I can search for information about
my family who fled >from Poland into the Soviet Union during WWII, and
in particular about my grandfather who volunteered to fight with the
Red Army, probably >from Simferopol in the Crimea, and was killed in
mid- to late 1941. I received several helpful suggestions that I am
following up, but today I want to focus on Mel Comisarow's informative
post about printed Russian memorial books, "kniga pamyati," which list
slain Red Army soldiers. Mel wrote that there is a four-volume
memorial book specifically listing Jewish Red Army soldiers, and some
200 other books based on region.

It was my understanding that the Jewish book forms the basis of
Alexander Zaslavsky's Book of Electronic Memory ( http://jmemory.org/)
and that the regional books form the basis of the Russian Defense
Ministry's OBD memorial website
(http://www.obd-memorial.ru/html/index.html ), both of which sites I
have already searched in the past, without finding anything matching
my grandfather. This week, I found a website specific for the Crimea
(http://rk-memory.ru/ ) and searched that too, once again fruitlessly.
(I should point out that these sites are in Russian only, which I
don't speak, and using online translations and virtual keyboards to
painstakingly type in Cyrillic letters in various combinations for
searches and then going through results has been like pulling teeth!)

But I don't know if my understanding that these websites are based on
the printed books is correct. And even if it is, I don't how many of
the printed books are actually covered in the websites, or if all the
contents of a book that is in the website are included. Can anyone
shed any light on this subject? How much of a correlation is there
between the printed books and the websites? And if the websites don't
cover all the printed books or all their contents, are they adding
content as time goes on, or staying as they are? Any information would
be most appreciated and I'm sure would be useful for quite a few
people.

Thanking you in advance,
Miriam Bulwar David-Hay,
Raanana, Isael.

Two are >from Lida town <LID_LID_1_1875_men> (595 individuals) and
<LID_LID_2_1875_men> (679 individals), and one >from Vasilishki
<LID_VAS_1875_men> (1,873 individuals). Despite the names of these files,
they contain many people who are either residing or are registered in Lida
District towns other than Lida and Vasilishki.

<LID_LID_1> is divided by the streets on which people lived -- look for the
orange-highlighted rows with "Novy Gorod Street," "near the Pharmacy" and
other information about a family's location in Lida. This file also contains
some physical descriptions and ages.

There is a surname list for these files at the bottom of our site's homepage
(https://lidadistrict.shutterfly.com), under Surname Lists.

While these files will eventually be publicly searchable in the LitvakSIG
All-Lithuania Database and the JewishGen Belarus Database, they are currently
available only to participants in the LitvakSIG Lida District Research Group.

To become part of the LitvakSIG Lida District Research Group, a qualifying
contribution of $100 to LitvakSIG will guarantee you access to Excel Files
of all translations -- new and old -- of Lida District records through December
31, 2021.

To contribute, please go to:

Your contribution will not only provide you access to these files, it will help
us translate the 1905 Family Lists for Lida town, Orlya, Radun and Shchuchin.
And because we have been able to obtain a matching grant, everything you
contribute will be doubled and help us reach our goal twice as fast!

Please let me know if you have any questions,
