First recipients of Pamela Weisberger Memorial Fund awards #ukraine

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

Gesher Galicia is pleased to announce its first Pamela Weisberger
Innovation Award. The prize of $2,500 comes >from the fund established
by her loving family, friends, and colleagues after her death in
September 2015. It is given for "outstanding technology in support of
genealogical research."

This year's recipient is Banai Lynn Feldstein for "Crowd-Sourced
Indexing." With this advanced tool, genealogical groups can organize,
work on, and track their entire projects in an easy-to-use,
self-contained manner. It is a significant advance in streamlining a
basic process fundamental in family history research. The program is
free to use and will enable many more groups to engage in indexing
projects.

A second award is the Pamela Weisberger Creative Grant. This has gone
to Jay Osborn, the innovator behind Gesher Galicia's digital Map Room.
This grant is for individuals in the field of genealogical research
who "show extraordinary originality and dedication in their creative
pursuits and a marked capacity for self-direction." It is intended as
an investment in a person's unique insight and in the potential for
the future project development.

Pamela and Jay had a vision of how untapped information about our
ancestors could be discovered through cadastral maps. Jay plans to
expand on what can be offered by merging 19th-century maps with
information on property ownership by means of state-of the-art
technology. He will volunteer his time to create the project
specifications and supervise the development work to be paid for by
this grant.

The awards were formally announced on July 24, 2017 at the Gesher
Galicia SIG Meeting at the IAJGS International Conference on Jewish
Genealogy in Orlando, Florida.

Thanks re: Katzky Family #general

Lande
 

Thanks to all who submitted information regarding my search for the fate of
the Katzky family. I think that I have enough to convince the German
Government that at least some of that family survived.

Let me renew my recommendation that anyone searching for information on Jews
resident in Germany in the Hitler era consult the International Tracing
Service website and my gradual work posted on Steve Morse's website under
Holocaust German Roof Organization.
