IAJGS to Bring Benefits of Local Jewish Genealogical Societies to New Cities #general

Nolan Altman
 

Two of the objectives of the International Association of Jewish
Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) (http://www.iajgs.org/blog/) are 1) to assist
and promote the research of Jewish family history and to 2) foster the
creation of Jewish genealogical organizations in unserved areas. We are
pleased to announce that we have been discussing the start of new and
renewed local societies in a number of cities. Some of these groups have
already scheduled meetings in September and October and others are still in
the organizing phase.

The new cities (and scheduled meetings) are Albany, NY (Sep 17 and Oct 22),
Syracuse, NY (Oct 8), Northampton, MA (Oct 23), Rochester, NY (Oct 25),
Deltona/Deland/Orange City, FL, Monterey, CA, Pittsburgh, PA, Jacksonville,
FL, Charleston, SC, Youngstown, OH. Kansas City MO/KS, and Rio de Janeiro,
Brazil.

If you live near any of these cities and are interested in more information,
or if you would be interested in helping to organize a new JGS in a new
city, please contact me at Nolan@IAJGS.org

The IAJGS currently has 75 member organizations (genealogical societies,
historical institutes, research groups and museums) in 13 countries. You
can see a complete listing of current members at

Searching for Henri GABES #general

ingrid rockberger
 

Dear Genners,

Does anyone know the whereabouts of Henri GABES, today aged around 76 and
last heard of in Paris around 1946?

Henri was separated >from his biological parents in France during WWII when
he was a baby and was placed with a foster family, who treated him badly.
His parents did not return after the war and he was 'rescued' by the Jewish
organisations and social workers and adopted. He became very attached to
the young lady who rescued him and to this day his memory haunts her.

If anyone has any information about Henri please reply to me and I will
pass on the information to the 'young lady', now aged 95!

French groups please copy, thanks.

Seeking Frieda-Riva #bessarabia

Melody Amsel-Arieli <nomietai@...>
 

When his mother--Sussa Lea Polak Zazulia-- died in 1893, my
grandfather Hersch (Harry Sally) was four years old. Evidently, his
father, Gavriel, did not re-marry (she had been his third wife).

Instead, according to family lore, a neighboring woman named
Frieda-Riva (last name unknown) then raised him.

Since my Hebrew name is Frieda-Riva, I am seeking details about her
life. I believe that she lived in Novoselitsa-- though it might
have been Klishkivitz.
I am hoping against hope that one of you has "met" her somewhere along the way.
She likely lived between 1850 and 1920.

I appreciate all comments, insights, discoveries....
