JGS OF GREATER MIAMI SPECIAL EV ENT FEBRUARY 6, 2011 WITH STEVE MORSE #general

Joan Parker <joanparker@...>
 

JGS of Greater Miami will be meeting Sunday, February 6, 2011 10:00am
at the Greater Miami Jewish Federation
4200 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami, FL
Tel: 305-576-4000 for directions.
Free Secure Parking on site. Press #001 on the yellow box to connect to
security. Wait for the gate to slide open. Have ID. Complimentary
refreshments. Visit our website at jgs-miami.org

We are delighted and excited to invite you to this Annual special free
event.

To celebrate our 22nd Anniversary, legendary genealogy guru, Steve Morse,
will again be guest speaker.

Steve is bringing to us a return to basics with his lecture on navigating
the
New York Census with less frustration. There were several state censuses
taken in New York starting >from 1790. However, possibly the most valuable
for genealogical
purposes are the 1905, 1915, and 1925 censuses because that was a time of
large influx of immigration. There have been assorted aids for getting
through those censuses, but they were often hard to use, covered only
specific years or boroughs, and were not available at all libraries. Using
his famous One-Step which rectifies that situation by putting a universal
finding aid on line that covers all the boroughs of New York City in each of
the three census years. This presentation describes the One-Step approach
and contrasts it to the previous methods.

Following the short break will be his famous updated Potpourri lecture: The
Updated Potpourri of Genealogical Search Tools. The website started out as a
way to finding passengers in the Ellis Island database. Shortly afterwards
it grew to help with searching in the 1930 census. Over the years
it has continued to evolve and today includes about 200 web-based tools
divided into 16 separate categories.This presentation will describe the
range of tools available and give the highlights of each one.

Guests and their friends are always welcome. There is no admission fee.
Come and enjoy the morning of genealogy with your fellow researchers. This
should be a very informative session. We look forward to seeing you there
to share this with us and for us to share with you.

FrenchSIG Luncheon in DC? #france

rdleeson@...
 

Once again I am asking if there are any more FrenchSIG members who are
planning to come to Washington for the 2011 conference, and would be
willing to join in a FrenchSIG sponsored luncheon!

So far I have heard >from only 4 of you, two of whom are not yet
certain. If we do not have a minimum of 10 attendees at at Luncheon,
then we will not be able to have the speaker >from the USHMM.

I look forward, with hope, that more of you will be coming and are
willing to attend a luncheon! I must know by Sunday at the latest.

Re: Is Additional Information Found in Archives That's Not Found in Tarnow PSA Records? #galicia

Mark Halpern <willie46@...>
 

Dear Linda:

Although I am not familiar with the Tarnow records, I am familiar with
Galician vital records >from many other towns.

First you need to split these records into two categories -- those before
1877 and those starting in 1877. Before 1877, there were no government
regulations that standardized what was to be captured on Jewish vital
records. In 1877 and thereafter, the fields required in vital records were
standardized. JRI-Poland provides some examples of the column headings at
http://www.jri-poland.org/galicia/GalicianVitalRecords_Titles_Nov2002.pdf

Before 1877, there was no consistency, but we know there was less
information than in later records. For births, most records included the
father's full name and the mother's given name. Sometimes records also
included the given name of the father's father and/or mother's father. For
marriages, the parents of the bride and groom are usually shown although not
the mother's maiden name. For death's, only for children was a parent's name
usually recorded.

Starting in 1877, birth records included the names of the mother's parents,
but not the father's parents. Marriages recorded the parents of both the
bride and groom, including the maiden name of the mother. And deaths again
did not record parent's names except for the death of children.

Since there was no consistency in recording of names, obtaining examples
from other researchers for the type of record and the year of your interest
is the best way to find out exactly what was recorded. All the examples I
provide are the usual content based on my years of experience with Galician
records as an Archive Coordinator for JRI-Poland.

Most of these specific records found in JRI Poland do not list the
names of parents (I am looking specifically for HANDGRIFF). Does that
mean that the parent's names are not included with the original
records as well, or does it mean that I would need to send to the
Archive to get that information? I am asking because in a few cases
the parent's names are mentioned.

Re: Is Additional Information Found in Archives That's Not Found in Tarnow PSA Records? #galicia

Howard Fink <HowGen@...>
 

The data we have for Tarnow is >from three main sources:

1) LDS microfilms of vital records, approx 1808 - 1860, transcribed by
our volunteer group,
2) PSA indices of vital records, mostly 1870's - 1905,
3) PSA indices of School records, various years.

The specific record set you are referencing is the second group. For
this set the parents' names are usually available in the actual records.
The indices for these records were created by the Polish State Archives
(PSA) for JRI-Poland using the contributions we received >from many
donations:

http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/psa/status.htm#Tarnow

Since we did not have direct access to the actual records I cannot say
that all records have this additional information, but I can tell you
that the PSA did not enter any of this extra information in the indices
they generated for us for any of the years prior to 1900, but they did
enter it >from that year forward. This was the case for Births, Deaths &
Marriages. For those years, out of almost 2200 Births there are only 3
without the mother's name. Records that I have personally ordered always
contained parents' information. These records are all in tabular form -
there are no long paragraph style entries, so it is not difficult to
read them.

We would, of course, like to add the extra information to the indices of
the years before 1900. When the mother's maiden name is present it
results in more connections being found in your search results for a
specific surname. Future contributions may allow us to add this
information.

It appears the inquiry was regarding R. Joel Halpern who was the son of
R. Abraham Zorach Judah Ari Halpern and is mentioned in The Unbroken
Chain. He was an uncle of both of the R. Joel Halperns mentioned in Joe
Slater's post. As I replied directly to Steven Bloom, one of his
granddaughters or great-granddaughters apparently once had a post on

RECORDS ACQUISITION REPORT- 4TH QUARTER-2010 #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

Following is a list of records that were translated by
LitvakSIG during October, November, and December, 2010.

They will be added to the LitvakSIG's "All Lithuania Database" -
the ALD - 18 months after they were received.
In the meantime, they are available in the various District
Research Group (DRG) web sites.

If you are interested in a particular list, but are not a member
of that DRG, make a suitable contribution to LitvakSIG, and you
will gain access to the records. If you have any questions,
go to < www.litvaksig.org > and click on DISTRICT RESEARCH.
At the same site, click on JOIN CONTRIBUTE to make your donation.

Thanks should go to Dorothy Leivers, who coordinates the
district coordinators, as well as to the DC's themselves.
Aaron Roetenberg coordinates the vital records for the
Kaunas Gubernia towns, and Dorothy coordinates the vital records
for Suwalki gubernia towns in present day Lithuania.
Joel Ratner coordinates the Vilnius District for all types of
records. His report will follow at a later date.

A great big thanks should also go to all of those who have made
monetary contributions to LitvakSIG. Without those funds,
very few records could be translated.

Lithuania SIG #Lithuania RECORDS ACQUISITION REPORT- 4TH QUARTER-2010 #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

Following is a list of records that were translated by
LitvakSIG during October, November, and December, 2010.

They will be added to the LitvakSIG's "All Lithuania Database" -
the ALD - 18 months after they were received.
In the meantime, they are available in the various District
Research Group (DRG) web sites.

If you are interested in a particular list, but are not a member
of that DRG, make a suitable contribution to LitvakSIG, and you
will gain access to the records. If you have any questions,
go to < www.litvaksig.org > and click on DISTRICT RESEARCH.
At the same site, click on JOIN CONTRIBUTE to make your donation.

Thanks should go to Dorothy Leivers, who coordinates the
district coordinators, as well as to the DC's themselves.
Aaron Roetenberg coordinates the vital records for the
Kaunas Gubernia towns, and Dorothy coordinates the vital records
for Suwalki gubernia towns in present day Lithuania.
Joel Ratner coordinates the Vilnius District for all types of
records. His report will follow at a later date.

A great big thanks should also go to all of those who have made
monetary contributions to LitvakSIG. Without those funds,
very few records could be translated.

Hello,

I have found 2 entries for members of my family under the above database. I
have tried to find out by actively searching the Latvia SIG FAQs and other
links what information ordering these records would give me, over and above
the information already shown on the database. Could someone point me to
the right area of the SIG website, or respond to me privately if anyone knows
what getting copies of these records might show? Thank you.
