Vast array of databases at this year's IAJGS Conference in Seattle Aug 7012 #germany

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

The 36th annual conference of the International Association of Jewish
Genealogical Societies will offer an extensive and rich array of
research databases at this year's conference at the lovely Sheraton
Hotel in the heart of downtown Seattle. The conference runs >from August
7 to 12, 2016. Banks of computers in the Sheraton's resource room will
be linked to a vast array of paid subscription and "behind the wall"
databases, all of which will be available for free.

Among the databases that will be running for the duration of the
conference are: the Ancestry family of websites (including
Ancestry.com, Fold3.com, Newspapers.com and Archives.com); FindMyPast;
GenTeam; MyHeritage family of websites (including MyHeritage.com,
Geni.com and World Vital Records); Godfrey.org; the New England Historic
Genealogical Society; Jewishdata.com; and many more. Yad Vashem and the
United States Holocaust Memorial Museum will also make their extensive
archives available through dedicated computers.

In addition, on Wednesday August 9, for one day only, the uniquely
comprehensive ProQuest newspaper archive will be available in its
entirety. "Last time we offered ProQuest, there were lines out the
door," says Jan Meisels Allen, who is in charge of the conference
databases. "Our conference has a unique emphasis on research," Allen
adds. "You can further your research while enjoying all the other
benefits of the conference."

This summer's conference will also feature a Jewish Film Festival put
together by leading Jewish film scholar and teacher of cinema Eric
Goldman. Other highlights of the Seattle conference include the opening
night keynote address by Dr. Devin Naar, chair of the University of
Washington Sephardic Studies Program, and the banquet address by "legal
genealogist" Judy Russell, a Certified Genealogist and Certified
Genealogical Lecturer. And, as at previous conferences, remote
streaming of selected programs will be available through LIVE!

The conference's Early Registration period, which runs until April 30,
offers the lowest fees, with savings of $55 for the full conference. For
more information, contact the conference co-chairs Janette Silverman,
Phyllis Grossman, and Chuck Weinstein through the conference website
www.iajgs2016.org.

Yizkor Book Project, March 2016 #germany

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Yet another month has whooshed past and it's the time to let you know what
has been accomplished in the Yizkor Book Project over the last 31 days. I
would like to point out some particularly notable projects that were added
or updated in March:

The first was the completion of the online placement of the translation of
the Golshany, Belarus Yizkor Book, which was generously donated to our
project by Jack Leibman and we are most thankful for this significant
donation.

Another notable addition was the addition of the "Biographical Dictionary of
Jewish Resistance" book which was provided to us by Yad Vashem. The list of
the names appearing in it was painstakingly translated for us by Shalom
Bronstein and it contains an enormous amount of information on a large
number of Jewish Partisans and is definitely worth your perusal.

I am also pleased to note that Esther Weinschelbaum has kindly sent us a
Hebrew translation of the Kamen Kashirskiy Book which joins the ever growing
Hebrew translations about former Jewish communities in the Ukraine and
Esther is well-deserving of our grateful thanks.

Finally, as I've noted before, the Yizkor Books in Print Project doesn't
stop for a minute and just this last month, we are happy to announce that
the publishing of "The Book of Dembitz". This and the many other books
already published by the YBIP Project are in high demand. Of course, there
are still many books waiting to be published and the work goes on as we
"speak".

And now for all the changes and additions that were carried out in the
Yizkor Book Project over March.

Here's your answer
There is a four volume "Kniga Pamiati", a memorial book, published
in the 1990s, that lists Jewish servicemen killed in action while
serving in the Red Army. This book was published by the Jewish War
Veterans Association in Moscow. Go to your library and do a catalog
search for "Kniga Pamiati" and the books you are looking for will be in
the list of Soviet memorial books. You then have to order the book on
interlibrary loan. There are about 200 books with Kniga Pamiati in
their titles. Most were published in the 1990s and list Red Army
soldiers >from a particular area, who were killed in action in WWII.
These books' contents are arranged by Oblast (province) and Rayon
(District, county) If you know where you relatives were living prior to
WWII order the Kniga Pamiati for that region. The regional kniga
pamiati list name, patronymic, civilian occupation, military rank,
birthplace, death place, Soviet nationality (Russian, Ukrainian, Jewish,
Armenian ...), and death mode (died of wounds, KIA, MIA) if this
information was known to the editors. I know of relatives of mine who
are listed as Jewish in the regional kniga pamiati, but who do not
appear in the Jewish kniga pamiati. I also know of Jewish veterans who
are listed in the Jewish kniga pamiati, but who do not appear in the
regional kniga pamiati.

You will have to learn to read the Cyrillic alphabet but this is not
difficult.

Using Wild Cards -- Was: Hamburg Shipping Line vessels #general

Barbara Zimmer
 

Dear Genners,
Several of you have asked me how I found a possible match for Chaim
FEIGELMAN who left Hamburg in January 1899 and who arrived in America
before the 1900 census

I used Wild Cards to search for any male age 30 and searched for
*G*L*M*N arriving anywhere in America in 1899. (Using Ancestry)
This brought up Chaim VOGELMAN, transcribed on the out-bound manifest
from England as OOGELMAN, and his arrival in St John, New Brunswick
recorded as BOGILMAN.

"Normal" searches would not have worked because the initial letter in
the surname was different at each step. Another possible solution
might have been to search for a 30-year-old man named CH*M.

Barbara Zimmer
Norfolk Virginia

>from my previous response : "Chaim FEIGELMANN who left >from Hamburg in
January 1899 age 30 . <snip>
...I found Chaim leaving England as Chaim VOGELMAN (not too far-fetched
since Vogel and Feigl both mean "bird" ) transcribed on the out-going
manifest as Oogelman and entering Canada at St John, New Brunswick in
March 1899, headed to New York City. The name was further mangled so that
it appears on the incoming manifest in Canada as Bogilman. "

Several of you have asked me how I found a possible match for Chaim
FEIGELMAN who left Hamburg in January 1899 and who arrived in America
before the 1900 census

I used Wild Cards to search for any male age 30 and searched for
*G*L*M*N arriving anywhere in America in 1899. (Using Ancestry)
This brought up Chaim VOGELMAN, transcribed on the out-bound manifest
from England as OOGELMAN, and his arrival in St John, New Brunswick
recorded as BOGILMAN.

"Normal" searches would not have worked because the initial letter in
the surname was different at each step. Another possible solution
might have been to search for a 30-year-old man named CH*M.

>from my previous response : "Chaim FEIGELMANN who left >from Hamburg in
January 1899 age 30 . <snip>
...I found Chaim leaving England as Chaim VOGELMAN (not too far-fetched
since Vogel and Feigl both mean "bird" ) transcribed on the out-going
manifest as Oogelman and entering Canada at St John, New Brunswick in
March 1899, headed to New York City. The name was further mangled so that
it appears on the incoming manifest in Canada as Bogilman. "

I'm researching about my grandfather Rabbi Yekusiel Yehuda GREENWALD,
he was the rabbi of Ordarma, Ung, Hungary, today Storozhnytsia
Ukraine, he got married Dec. 09 1902 in Nagykapos, Ung, Slovakia, and
lived there till about 1911 when he moved to Ordarma, since he became
the rabbi over there, [but he still had some of children in
Nagykapos], on April 27 1918 his wife passed away in Nagykapos, when
she was giving birth to a child, he remarried and had more children
till his passing Jan. 11 1934, he was a weak person so he moved to
Ungvar, Ung, Hungary, today Uzhgorod Ukraine which was the big city of
area, and passed away there.

All that's written above is >from what we know in the family, I would
like to see the documents of the above mentioned cities, to know the
exact date of birth of his children, but I couldn't find anything, I
want to ask you if you know how to achieve the documents of any of the
above cities: Ordarma, Nagykapos, or Ungvar, please contact me.

Also if you have any information, or documentation, of the above
mentioned rabbi please provide me with a copy, or send me a link of

IAJGS Conference? #france

Rosanne Leeson
 

Dear fellow French-SIGgers,

Well so far I have had no response at all >from anyone who was planning
to attend, or even thinking of attending, the IAJGS Conference in
Seattle in August.

This is very discouraging. We are hoping to have at least one member of
the CGJ in Paris coming to Seattle. We have requested time for a SIG
meeting. We would like to hear >from members as to possible projects,
etc. You may have noticed the huge number of burials in French
cemeteries that have been added to the JOWBR database!

We have 886 members now subscribed. Surely there must be some among you
who are interested enough to come to the Conference, which is
concentrated on Sephardic genealogy, with so many of Sephardic descent
in France!

We do hope to hear >from some of you soon , particularly those who wish
to take advantage of the reduced rates before the end of April!
