N. Kotz
 

The Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington will host the following
events on Saturday, April 7 and Sunday, April 8, at the Bender Jewish
Community Center, 6125 Montrose Road, Rockville, MD

All of the events are FREE and open to the public. Sponsored jointly by
JGSGW, the Bender JCC, and Family Tree DNA.

Saturday, April 7 - 1:00 to 3:00 PM

Film - "Expulsion and Memory: Descendants of the Hidden Jews"
In 1492, with the stroke of a pen, fifteen hundred years of Jewish life in
Spain came to an abrupt end. In a Medieval example of ethnic cleansing, the
Jews of Spain were given a choice: expulsion or conversion. Half the
community left, half converted. Many of the converted, known as Conversos,
continued to practice Judaism in secret establishing a way of life that has
survived to the present day. Shot on location in Spain, Portugal, Israel,
Canada, and the United States, this documentary tells the story of the
Conversos and memories that still haunt their descendants. The 60-minute
film features a Spanish/Sephardic soundtrack by some of the world's leading
artists, including Placido Domingo, Zubin Metha, and the Israel Philharmonic
Orchestra.

Sunday, April 8

10:00 AM "Using DNA in Your Genealogical Research" with speaker Jim
Brewster, FamilyTreeDNA

Jim Brewster >from Family Tree DNA will talk about using DNA for Genealogy.
Lack of records and unforeseen relocations can be a huge stumbling block in
Jewish genealogical research. In recent years DNA testing has become a
popular tool for getting past these brick walls. Learn about the three basic
types of DNA tests (autosomal, mitochondrial, and Y Chromosome DNA) and how
it can help with your research. Jim is the genealogist for his family and
has taught classes in both paper trail and genetic genealogy. He now works
as Assistant Manager for the Group Projects Team at Family Tree DNA. Jim
works with project administrators as well as attending conferences and events
where he enjoys sharing his passion with others and educating people about
genealogy.

Family Tree DNA was the first company to develop the commercial application
of DNA testing for genealogical purposes. It has the most comprehensive and
diverse genetic genealogy databases in the world, to connect people with
their ancestors and their relatives in Europe and around the world. Genetic
genealogy gives family historians a means to check their discoveries with
information obtained via DNA testing. With a simple cheek swab, Family Tree
DNA test can provide clues for further genealogical research, help determine
ancestral homelands, reveal living relatives, and confirm or refute suspected
connections between families. Test kits will be available for purchase
following the talk.

1:00 PM Schmooze and Maven Tables - nosh and ask questions of our JGSGW
experts.

1:30 PM "Tracing Crypto-Jewish Heritage" with speaker Daniel Diaz-Huerta

Daniel Di­az-Huerta will share his personal, tumultuous and complex journey
within the secret or private construct of crypto-Judaism, an innovative
form of Spanish medieval Judaism, to include "La cabala" which has
miraculously survived for well over 500 years.

He will also present the precious and meticulous genealogical documents -
including 16th-century handwritten genealogical trees - that are integral
to the guardians (primos y primas) of the Spanish secret in New Mexico. Mr.
Diaz-Huerta is an author, educator, lecturer, and self-proclaimed
"dance aficionado," artistically integrating flamenco into his genealogical
and crypto-Jewish presentation. He has advanced degrees in Portuguese
Language & Literature, Latin American Studies, and Spanish Language &
Literature >from the University of New Mexico, as well as graduate hours
toward an M.A., Religious Studies at Arizona State University. He was the
recipient of the Seymour H. Jacobs Memorial Scholarship for his work,
"Unveiling the Hidden Jewish Voices of Spain: >from Convivencia to Modernity."

All of these events will take place at the Bender Jewish Community
Center, 6125 Montrose Road, Rockville, MD

They are FREE and open to the public. Sponsored jointly by JGSGW, the
Bender JCC, and Family Tree DNA.

Descendants of Rabbi DAVID, Rabbi of Novarodok 18th cent #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

According to my family history, an ancester of mine was the brother
of a Rabbi of Novarodok, David ben (son of) Moshe of Kletzk. I have
not found any source which states David's family name (if he had one).
Interestingly in a list of Rabbis of Novarodok where he is mentioned,
the rabbis before and after him were noted with family names. Someone
wrote to me years ago that his family name was TCHEMERINSKY, but I
have not confirmed this. BTW, Chaim Weitzman (First president of the
state of Israel)'s mother was a TCHEMERINSKY.

In the far past I was in touch with descendants of the above Rabbi but
have since lost contact with them and would like to renew my research
regarding our exact connection. Some of the family names connected to
married children were RABINOVICH, AGOLNICK, HOROWITZ.

I would be happy to hear >from anyone who are descendants of the above
Rabbi David and may know about our connection.

Happy Pesach

Yoni Ben-Ari, Jerusalem

I am wondering if anyone here knows if there was a Mandatory Military
Service in Hungary. At what age were people required to draft and for
how long?

The reason for my question is that I know my father had been drafted
to Military service of several years before WWII broke (he was born
1915). I know that he was released >from service and returned home.

Then, after WWII broke, he was drafted again to Forced Labor

Re: Mandatory Military Service #hungary

tom
 

yes, there was. my father served 2 years, starting at age 21, was discharged on his 23rd birthday, and was called up again 6 months later, when war broke out in september 1939, and assigned to forced labour. as a regular soldier, he was in the garrison at buda castle.

there was also compulsory pre-military training, which was notorious for being particularly unpleasant towards jews. (just as army service was.) my father avoided it by signing up for an alternative: a boxing champion, who happened to be a friend, ran a gym, and he signed up for boxing training instead.

the List," part of the Schindler's List DVD.

"I always tell Steven Spielberg (director of Schindler's List) that he gave
me a voice," she said. "I say, 'You are my second Schindler. He gave me
life, but you gave me a voice. Because for 40 years, I never was able to
talk about it because I didn't think that anybody would understand.' "
Celina will make a presentation on her wartime experiences and answer
questions >from the audience.
