GerSIG Day - it went so fast #germany

Jeanette R Rosenberg OBE
 

Dear GerSIG members

Phew! Was that ever a busy day! Sorry it has taken me a day or two
to write this email, I was exhausted after conference and I am playing
catch up with emails, and sleep!

Thursday July 9 was very busy for members of our SIG. It was the day
where we had the vast majority of GerSIG interest programming. We
were also somehow able to put all our sessions in one room, so we
could all network like crazy between sessions, without the need to
move too far.

Our day started early, (08.15) with Fritz Neubauer. He spoke about
Archive Documents Discovered On Additional First Names Imposed On
German Jews in 1939. You can read further information in Fritz's
handout on the conference website - in the detailed information
section. In fact all handouts available are on the conference web
page now. I had the great pleasure of introducing his talk and I
found it very interesting.

Up next was my own lecture, Are German-Jewish Community Histories
Trustworthy Source Material for your Family Tree? My thanks again to
Renee Stern Steinig for kindly introducing me. You can get a copy of
my handout here:
https://round2itgenealogy.wordpress.com/2015/07/11/handout-from-my-presentation-at-the-iajgs-conference-in-jerusalem-july-2015/

The next talk was by Dr. Debbie Lifschitz who spoke about The Story of
One Extended German Family During The Shoa. She used her research
about the STEINDECKER family as her example.

After Debbie's, talk came the GerSIG business meeting. I will write
more about that separately.

Our business meeting was followed by the GerSIG luncheon with our
invited guest speaker Dr. Yochai Ben-Ghedalia who spoke on
German-Jewish Vital Records at the CAHJP I will be following up with
him about possible projects in the next few days.

Finally, after lunch, we heard >from Dr William Weitzer about A Portal
into German-Jewish History - the LBI and Digibaeck. Dr Weitzer was
our invited guest speaker to last year's conference in Salt Lake City.

After our German- Jewish interest sessions we were all networking like
crazy and then came the traditional end of conference banquet, where
good fun was had by all.

I will post about the business meeting in a day or two. Also, in the
meantime, we are keen to hear your suggestions for an invited guest
speaker in Seattle,

best regards

Lakeview Home For Unwed Jewish Mothers in Staten Island, NY #general

Martin Kaminer
 

Many of you may have seen the positively gripping tale in the New York Times
recently entitled "A Son Given Up for Adoption Is Found After Half a Century, and
Then Lost Again" http://nyti.ms/1ftX9f9 which revolves around the Lakeview Home For
Unwed Jewish Mothers on Staten Island
http://timesmachine.nytimes.com/timesmachine/1911/04/10/105024810.html?pageNumber=6
Family lore has it that my late Grandmother's older sister was dispatched there as
well and basically banished >from the family,perhaps around 1925. Is anyone aware of
any genealogical records >from this facility that might help identify her
descendants? I'm guessing >from what little I've been able to find and the great
lengths to which the mother in the article had to go to that the answer is a
resounding 'No' but given the formidable collective expertise of this board I
figured I'd ask. Any glimmers of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.

With Appreciation and Regards,
Martin Kaminer

Sara Hinde SCHATZ-Pinsk-connection to Volozhin family #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

In a "yichus brief" a note penned by a great uncle of mine he writes that his
mother's mother was a descendant of R' Chaim of Volozhin (in another family source
the "Volozhin family). Sarah Hinde's maiden name seems to be SCHATZ but it could be
that as her father was a Chazan in Pinsk (or Karlin) during the mid 19th cent. the
name "Schatz"(Shaliach Tzibur=Chazan) stuck to him. Sarah Hinde married a Shlomo
KANTOR (also meaning chazan-is there a confusion in the records or how it was
passed down).

This couple doesn't appear in any of the Volozhin family trees which I have seen.
There is a family story which states that Sarah Hinde or her mother was orphaned at
a young age and that Reb Itzaleh, Reb Chaim's son took her to her chupa (wedding).
This sounds a bit like Reb Itzaleh's daughter and son-in-law LANDAU who seem to
have died before their children married. But again, her name is not included in
the family tree, which doesn't prove she didn't belong to the Volozhin family.

Is anyone familiar with the Volozhin family tree , especially members that weren't
included in the published trees who know of this Sarah Hinde SCHATZ/KANTOR?

I am very happy to let you know that Judy Baston won this year's IAJGS
Lifetime Achievement Award. The award was announced and bestowed at the
Banquet in Jerusalem on Thursday evening, July 9.

Judy is very involved in numerous genealogy organizations besides
LitvakSIG.
The inscription on the award reads: "In recognition of Judy's tireless
work as: a LitvakSIG board member; moderator of the LitvakSIG
Discussion Group; membership of the JRI-Poland Board; Lomza Archive
Coordinator; and moderator of the Lodz Area Research Group and
BialyGen discussion groups. Judy was also involved in editing/
proofreading Yizkor Book translations for Ciechanowiec, Eisiskes and
Ostrow Mazowiecka, and is a sought after speaker."
Judy is also District Coordinator of the Lida and Oshmiany District
Research Groups of LitvakSIG and the moderator of the JRI-Poland
discussion Group. I probably missed something, so I apologize in advance.

In her "spare" time back home in California, Judy is very involved
with the Jewish Community Library of San Francisco where she
volunteers and helps conduct monthly genealogy workshops.

I am very proud to call Judy my friend and to say Mazel Tov!

Konin and Kalisz vital records now online #general

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

Scans of Jewish vital records >from Konin and Kalisz were recently
added to http://szukajwarchiwach.pl . Konin: BMD for 1826-1912,
excluding 1849, 1854, 1857, 1861, 1864, 1867-1868, 1872, 1875-1877,
and 1890 (and excluding 1902 for births). Kalisz: BMD for 1875-1892
and (recently added) 1906-1911. Extracts of some, but not all, of
these records are available at http://jri-poland.org .

To view the scans:

1) Visit the overview list of records at (Konin)
http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/54/840/0/str/1/100#tabJednostki
or (Kalisz)
http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/11/693/0/str/1/100#tabJednostki .

2) Identify a group of records of interest by looking at the title in
the second column >from the left, the date or date range in the third
column >from the left, and the number of scans currently online in the
last column on the right. If the last column is a 0, there are no
scans online for that group.

3) Click on the title of the group of interest.

4) On the new page that is displayed, click on the tab called "Skany,"
"Scans," or "Digital copies," which should be to the right of the red
tab.

5) You should now see thumbnail images of several scans. There is a
dropdown menu just above the thumbnails that determines how many
thumbnails are displayed per page, defaulting to 15. You might want
to change this to the maximum, 100.

6) To enlarge a thumbnail so you can read what is in the image, click
on the thumbnail and a larger -- but not yet full-size -- image will
pop up. This is sometimes sufficient for you to determine whether the
image is of interest, e.g., when browsing through images looking for a
specific surname or record number, or when trying to find records from
around a specific date.

7) In the bottom right of the larger image's pop-up are two icons in
white on black circular backgrounds -- one a rectangle with marks at
the corners and the other a "z." To view the full-size image, click
the rectangle icon. Another window should pop up, probably without
any image initially. Wait, and the full-size image should appear
within about a minute. The image might be too big to be displayed all
at once, in which case you can move your cursor over the image, click
with your mouse, and, while holding your mouse button down, drag the
image around so other parts are visible. Below the image, centered,
is a download link (you might have to use the window's scrollbar to
see the the link).

To view the scans:

1) Visit the overview list of records at the above link for your town.

2) Identify a group of records of interest by looking at the title in
the second column >from the left, the date or date range in the third
column >from the left, and the number of scans currently online in the
last column on the right. If the last column is a 0, there are no
scans online for that group. The date ranges above are for groups
with scans online.

3) Click on the title of the group of interest.

4) On the new page that is displayed, click on the tab called "Skany,"
"Scans," or "Digital copies," which should be to the right of the red
tab.

5) You should now see thumbnail images of several scans. There is a
dropdown menu just above the thumbnails that determines how many
thumbnails are displayed per page, defaulting to 15. You might want
to change this to the maximum, 100.

6) To enlarge a thumbnail so you can read what is in the image, click
on the thumbnail and a larger -- but not yet full-size -- image will
pop up. This is sometimes sufficient for you to determine whether the
image is of interest, e.g., when browsing through images looking for a
specific surname or record number, or when trying to find records from
around a specific date.

7) In the bottom right of the larger image's pop-up are two icons in
white on black circular backgrounds -- one a rectangle with marks at
the corners and the other a "z." To view the full-size image, click
the rectangle icon. Another window should pop up, probably without
any image initially. Wait, and the full-size image should appear
within about a minute. The image might be too big to be displayed all
at once, in which case you can move your cursor over the image, click
with your mouse, and, while holding your mouse button down, drag the
image around so other parts are visible. Below the image, centered,
is a download link (you might have to use the window's scrollbar to
see the the link).
