BARRY HALPERN

I would like to stand for reelection to the LitvakSIG Board for another
three year term.
Upon the completion of my current three year term I will have served on the
Board for a total of four years. It's been a journey of learning for me in
many ways. At first, I had to learn the ropes about how LitvakSIG operated,
what it took to lead and manage our organization, and how to work best with
my colleagues on the Board as well as with all of the many volunteers that
support our work around the world. And of course, I had to learn how best
to serve the needs of our hundreds of members and donors >from around the
world.
LitvakSIG has indeed accomplished much in the 19 or so years since its
formation. But we have so much more to do - both in terms of obtaining,
translating and digitizing more and more records, and in terms of
publicizing our global efforts on behalf of Litvaks everywhere. I am
sincerely hopeful that I am re-elected to the Board so I will be able to
carry on with our mission and activities in support of that mission.
I have served as Vice President and Secretary for the past couple of years,
and have worked hard to ensure that our Board looks towards the future,
while managing our short term objectives and responsibilities. My
colleagues on the Board over the years have been truly extraordinary. We
have been blessed with Litvaks who care about the work that we do, and who
possess incredible passion and expertise in so many areas of our Litvak
history in general and genealogy research in particular. I have learned from
them each and every year because they are all different, but all retain that
common thread of our Litvak ancestry. One of my own personal objectives for
LitvakSIG and for our Board leadership is to ensure that we continue to meet
the need of our "customers" - our members and our donors - and that we find
ways to expand their numbers by expanding our global reach.
This past year, one of the "short term" projects we've been working overtime
on is to enhance our website (yet again!) so that our need for Shutterfly is
eliminated - this change will be rolling out later this year. We've just
introduced our Facebook page as part of our effort to expand our recognition
and awareness of our mission. Personally, my own skills (developed during
my business career) in strategic and operational planning, technology
leadership, and general management, have helped me to participate and
contribute to LitvakSIG leadership.
Aside >from the LitvakSIG Board, for the past several years, I have served as
the monthly newsletter editor for the Jewish Genealogical Society of
Colorado (JGSCO). In addition to my long-term participation in LitvakSIG, I
have also previously worked on editing and updating of records translations
and digitizing of those records. In Colorado I continue to make
presentations to both organized and ad hoc genealogy groups on a range of
related topics (e.g. accessing and researching Litvak records; writing and
publishing a family history book; genealogy, and Jewish genealogy, for
beginners) I have written and published a history of my father's family
"The Three Lives of My Father". I am also a member of the Jewish
Genealogical Society of Greater Boston. Most recently, I visited and toured
Lithuania as a part of the LitvakSIG Board's trip - being "on the ground"
there, meeting with archivists, and touring various Jewish sites as well as
my family's home towns, will prove to be invaluable to me as we move
forward. I began my genealogical research efforts almost 20 years ago, and
have intensified that work during the most recent ten years. Both the
maternal and paternal sides of my family originated in the Vilnius and
Trakai regions of Lithuania (all four of my grandparents were born there, in
addition to my father).
I maintain my long-term interest in the Jewish communities in Asia, having
lived and worked there for close to 20 years (in Hong Kong, Japan, Korea and
Indonesia). As a side comment, in 1997 my daughter became a Bat Mitzvah in
the city of Surabaya, Indonesia, in the only (at that time) synagogue in
Indonesia, attended by the very small community of Indonesian Jews.
If re-elected, I would continue to bring a wide and varied range of
professional and business skills to the LitvakSIG Board, based on my more
than 35 years of experience in the insurance industry. In my business
career, I started work as an actuary and following my relocation to Asia,
served as CEO of several insurance companies in Asia, and on the Boards of
the American Chambers of Commerce in Korea and Indonesia. I am accustomed
to working with an international and diverse team, both in person and
remotely, which certainly describes the makeup and activities of the
LitvakSIG Board.
I was born and raised in the Boston area and spent most of my first 30 years
there.
I have appreciated the opportunity to serve you these past years as a member
of the Board, and I would appreciate your strong consideration again this
year!


RALPH SALINGER

I was born in London in 1946 - grew up in New Zealand and came to live in
Israel in 1975! I've spent the past years researching my family history.
Recently I've been involved in researching the history of Jewish
Vilkaviskis and variousother projects in Lithuania. Active board
member of LitvakSIG and MACEVA. Married with three
children and two grandchildren and live on Kibbutz Kfar Ruppin.

Published "Traces of a Lost Nation" about Jewish Vilkaviskis.
DC for Kaunas, Panevezys and Disna !
Trying to get folks to donate to the Continuity Fund !


AMY WACHS

Thank you for considering me as a nominee for the LitvakSIG Board in 2017.
I have served on the LitvakSIG Board since 2014 and as Trakai District
Research Group Coordinator since 2013. I also administer the new LitvakSIG
Facebook Page and assist with proofreading translated files.

I came to LitvakSIG with a strong background. I have lived and worked in
Eastern Europe and travelled extensively throughout the region. As a
Fulbright Scholar, I taught law in Riga, Latvia. I later returned to
Eastern Europe twice as a Fulbright Senior Specialist to teach law in
Chisinau, Moldova. I have been to Lithuania three times. During one trip
to Lithuania, I lived in Kaunas for 6 weeks, during which time I found
genealogy records for my ancestors at the Kaunas Regional Archives. I have
also done research on-site at Poland's state archives, met with archivists
at the Moldova state archives, and visited archives in Ukraine. So I am
familiar with Lithuania, archives, and Russian Empire records.

I am a retired attorney and university instructor. I currently serve as
President of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Cleveland. I have also served
on the Public Records Access Monitoring Committee and the Bylaws Committee
of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies. I often
speak about Eastern Europe and Jewish genealogy at conferences and to
groups. This summer I will be teaching a course at the Genealogical
Research Institute of Pittsburgh about tracing Eastern European roots.

I began researching my family tree as a child, so Jewish genealogy has been
my passion for more than 40 years. I especially appreciate the tremendous
contribution LitvakSIG has made in providing access to archive records.
Having travelled to archives overseas to research my ancestors, I know
firsthand what a difficult task finding and translating archive records can
be. LitvakSIG has helped us all by undertaking the translation of archive
records and making them widely available. I am proud to work with this
dedicated team and hope to have the opportunity to continue serving on the
Board.

Records in Russian, German, and Hebrew needing reading in order to complete Latvia births database #latvia

saweinsteinbsme@...
 

I am working on getting Christine Usdin's work into an Excel
spreadsheet so that it can go on Jewishgen.

I'm almost done, but there are a few things that Christine clearly
didn't transcribe correctly and need to be reread before we can
finish.

I'm going to send some of this now and plan to send out a second
message with the rest in about a week. Warren Blatt would like to get
this done in time for the conference this summer.

Most of these are written in duplicate, with one side in the old
Cyrillic script that was used in Russia until almost 100 years ago,
and the other side in Hebrew script characters (which are not the same
as the printed Hebrew that you see in a book or a Torah). However,
some are written only in Cyrillic or only in Hebrew, and some are
written in German.

For the most part, if you can read either side, that is enough; you do
not need to be able to read both. So if you can read any of the three
languages, you can help with some of the records.

Please provide whichever you can of the following:

1. http://img1.lvva-raduraksti.lv/rabinati/005024-0002-000639/LVVA-005024-0002-000639-0010-M3.jpg

Latvia SIG #Latvia Records in Russian, German, and Hebrew needing reading in order to complete Latvia births database #latvia

saweinsteinbsme@...
 

I am working on getting Christine Usdin's work into an Excel
spreadsheet so that it can go on Jewishgen.

I'm almost done, but there are a few things that Christine clearly
didn't transcribe correctly and need to be reread before we can
finish.

I'm going to send some of this now and plan to send out a second
message with the rest in about a week. Warren Blatt would like to get
this done in time for the conference this summer.

Most of these are written in duplicate, with one side in the old
Cyrillic script that was used in Russia until almost 100 years ago,
and the other side in Hebrew script characters (which are not the same
as the printed Hebrew that you see in a book or a Torah). However,
some are written only in Cyrillic or only in Hebrew, and some are
written in German.

For the most part, if you can read either side, that is enough; you do
not need to be able to read both. So if you can read any of the three
languages, you can help with some of the records.

Please provide whichever you can of the following:

1. http://img1.lvva-raduraksti.lv/rabinati/005024-0002-000639/LVVA-005024-0002-000639-0010-M3.jpg

Viewmate - help translating headstone in Hebrew #general

Jake Jacobs
 

Can anyone help translating this headstone? It has writing on 2 sides, and
unfortunately one of the images is difficult to read due to shadows. It cannot
be re-shot. The headstone belongs to my dad's uncle Milton JACOBS, who died at
age 2 in a fire. He is buried in Detroit, in a cemetery which is only open two
days a year. His parents were Abraham and Etta/Yetta Jacobs. Milton was born
1897.

the stone has Hebrew on 2 sides (the 2 links below). A third side has English,
which is very worn, but includes: Milton Jacobs... 1897.. 1899."

The images are here:
