Hebrew, German, Italian and Hungarian inscriptions, familiar surnames

1917-1919 Ukrainian Pogrom Centennial Commemorative Plans #general

Allison Zivin <azivin.felshtinsociety@...>
 

Dear Friends:

Save the Date! The Felshtin Society is planning a series of events to
commemorate the centennial of the 1917-1919 pogroms that killed an
estimated 100,000-200,000 people in the Pale of Settlement and is
often overlooked in Jewish history books. The main event will be a
conference in NYC on April 14, 2019. Early indications are that we'll
have a large turnout and we're setting aside time for all genealogy
researchers to meet and make those much-needed personal connections to
flesh out their family trees. Please email me at
azivin.felshtinsociety@... if you would like to be involved in
the planning or want to be added to our mailing list so that you get
updated information.

"Finding Information on Your US 20th Century Veteran Family Members" -- A New JGSLI Video #general

The Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island (JGSLI), winner of the IAJGS
2015 Outstanding Publication Award for its You Tube Channel, is pleased to
announce its latest video, "Finding Information on Your US 20th Century
Veteran Family Members".

During the 20th century, many of us had relatives that served in one of the
branches of the US armed forces. Whether they enlisted, were drafted or
made the military their career, being part of the armed services was an
important part of their life to document. This video will address some of
the information available that can help you research veterans who served
from World War I, forward.
You can access all 36 of our short instructional videos directly >from our
You Tube Channel at https://tinyurl.com/z8kpgka or >from our website

"Breaking Down Your Jewish Genealogical Brick Walls", Capital Region JGS, Albany, NY (Feb 4th) #general

Marc Pearlman
 

"Breaking Down Your Jewish Genealogical Brick Walls" is the topic of
the next meeting of the Capital Region Jewish Genealogical Society
(CRJGS).

Sometimes genealogical research reaches a sticking point. Procedures that
proved tried and true in the past just do not work with some ancestors.
This genealogical "brick wall" can sometimes be solved by thinking
"outside the box," and guidance >from peer researchers with CRJGS may be
the solution.

While there are many national on-line organizations, nothing can replace
a network of people who have valuable knowledge of the Capital Region and
experience in Jewish genealogical research techniques. For experienced
genealogists and novices alike, the goal of the CRJGS is to support
one another, as well as the larger Jewish genealogical community, with
Jewish family research.

The meeting will be held on Sunday, February 4, 2018, >from 1-3 p.m. at
the Colonie Town Library, 629 Albany Shaker Road, Loudonville. The
agenda includes a presentation by Marc Pearlman and discussion about
strategies for solving Jewish genealogical obstacles, as well as time
for peer assistance.

For further information or to confirm your attendance, please send an
email to the Capital Region Jewish Genealogical Society at
crjgs1@....
