A number of years ago I ordered the Declaration and Naturalization
Papers for FERDMAN, Schleime aka Samuel FELDMAN. It turns out this is
not the person I was looking for. I will be more than glad to email
copies to anyone who believes this is their relative. If you know the
wife's first name and where he came from, that would help to identify
if this is the person you are looking for. His children's names and
address are also listed.

Yizkor Book Project, January 2016 #latinamerica

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

The wheels of the Yizkor Book Project grind on relentlessly >from month to
month and in each report I am always pleased to share with you news about
the continued progress made in it over the last period. I must stress that
the achievements made each month exist, in no small manner, through the many
man (and woman) hours of volunteers who share the vision of the importance
of the YB Project and for their untiring efforts, I am humbly grateful.

At the same time, we certainly don't ignore the welcome financial support to
our Yizkor Book Translation Funds >from many of you which allow us to engage
the professional translators who are an integral part of the whole YB
Project and help move it forward. One such Translation Fund was setup over
the last month for the Thessaloniki (Salonika), Greece Yizkor Book - a
community that was such a prominent center of Sephardic Jews in Europe and
is no longer. If you feel able to assist this particular project financially
in any way, your support will go far into seeing the translation of this
book become available to the many of you with roots in this community. Links
to this and the other many Translations Funds appear at the end of this
report.

Last month, former Yizkor Book Project Manager, Joyce Field, graciously
provided us with expanded version of her paper on Yizkor books that now
appears in our Yizkor Books Insights page
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybinsights.html. The paper, by-the-way,
was delivered in October 2015, in Houston, Texas, at a conference of the
World Federation of Jewish Child Survivors and Descendants and we thank
Joyce for sharing with us, this eye-opening explanation of what Yizkor books
are all about.

As in the past few years, the Yizkor Books in Print (YBIP) Project continues
ever onwards and the very dedicated team behind it, regularly adds in new
titles to its growing range of published books (now over 40 such books).
Although the translations appearing in the YB Project continue to be freely
available, the YBIP Project provides published versions of complete
translations at a modest price for those who prefer to hold the books in
their hands - books which hold so much knowledge and memories of our not so
distant past.

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

During this last month we have added in one new project:

26th Conference of the Society for Crypto-Judaic Studies Redefining Crypto-Jewish
Identity: Then and Now June 26-28, 2016 - Drury Plaza Hotel - Santa Fe, New Mexico

Join us for the 26th conference of the Society for Crypto-Judaic Studies,
an international academic research and cultural association devoted to the
history of the descendants of Jews who were persecuted in Spain and Portugal
from the 15th-18th centuries.
Many were converts to Christianity who fled to North Africa, to Mediterranean
countries, and to the New World in what is today Mexico, the American Southwest,
as well as Central and South America, all hiding their Jewish past.

Our keynote speaker will be Inquisition history specialist Dr. Richard Kagan,
Arthur O. Lovejoy Professor, Early Modern European history at Johns Hopkins
University. He holds a joint appointment as Professor in the Department of
Romance Languages and Literatures. His books include the edited
"Atlantic Diaspora: Jews, Conversos, and Crypto-Jews in the Age of Mercantilism,
1500-1800;" "Students and Society in Early Modern Spain" (1974); and
"Inquisitorial Inquiries: Brief Lives of Secret Jews and Other Heretics."
His keynote, "A Hornet's Nest of Heretics," will focus on an interesting case of
17th-century crypto-Judaism in Mexico City.

The conference takes place Sunday, June 26 through Tuesday, June 28, 2016,
at the Drury Plaza Hotel in Santa Fe, New Mexico. In addition to presentations
by noted scholars, attendees will hear >from individuals describing their
discoveries of Jewish heritage.

This year's theme "Crypto-Judaic Identity: Then and Now" invites papers on

26th Conference of the Society for Crypto-Judaic Studies Redefining Crypto-Jewish
Identity: Then and Now June 26-28, 2016 - Drury Plaza Hotel - Santa Fe, New Mexico

Join us for the 26th conference of the Society for Crypto-Judaic Studies,
an international academic research and cultural association devoted to the
history of the descendants of Jews who were persecuted in Spain and Portugal
from the 15th-18th centuries.
Many were converts to Christianity who fled to North Africa, to Mediterranean
countries, and to the New World in what is today Mexico, the American Southwest,
as well as Central and South America, all hiding their Jewish past.

Our keynote speaker will be Inquisition history specialist Dr. Richard Kagan,
Arthur O. Lovejoy Professor, Early Modern European history at Johns Hopkins
University. He holds a joint appointment as Professor in the Department of
Romance Languages and Literatures. His books include the edited
"Atlantic Diaspora: Jews, Conversos, and Crypto-Jews in the Age of Mercantilism,
1500-1800;" "Students and Society in Early Modern Spain" (1974); and
"Inquisitorial Inquiries: Brief Lives of Secret Jews and Other Heretics."
His keynote, "A Hornet's Nest of Heretics," will focus on an interesting case of
17th-century crypto-Judaism in Mexico City.

The conference takes place Sunday, June 26 through Tuesday, June 28, 2016,
at the Drury Plaza Hotel in Santa Fe, New Mexico. In addition to presentations
by noted scholars, attendees will hear >from individuals describing their
discoveries of Jewish heritage.

New book of several biographies from the former Laupheim community BOOK CITE #germany

Irene and Fred <irenefred123@...>
 

Hi to all,

Dr. Udo Bayer has written another book about members of the former
Jewish community of Laupheim in southern Germany.

_Juedisches Aus Laupheim: Prominente Persoenlichkeiten Einer
Landjudengemeinde_
This new book covers short biographies of six outstanding personalities
who were born in the town. They are Kilian von Steiner, Moritz Henle,
Friedrich Adler, Hertha Nathorff, Gretel Bergmann (Margaret Lambert once
married) and Siegfried Einstein. It is noteworthy that Margaret Bergmann
Lambert was barred by the Nazis >from participating in the 1936 Olympics in
Berlin despite holding the women's high jump record. She is still
alive at the age of 101.

Work is in progress for an English edition of the book.

The publisher of the book is Hentrich & Hentrich Verlag in Berlin.
The ISBN is 978-3-95565-122-0.

Previously it was reported in this forum that Bayer published two
biographies, one in German and the other a bilingual book in English
and German, on the career of Carl Laemmle who founded Universal
Studios in Hollywood. Laemmle also was born in Laupheim.
