IGRA Meeting on June 28 in Ra'anana, Israel: "Landsmanshaftn Records - a Resource for Genealogy Research" #southafrica

Elena Bazes
 

Tuesday, June 28th in Ra'anana, Israel

Join us for the next meeting of the Israel Genealogy Research
Association (IGRA).

Avrohom Krauss will be speaking on "Landsmanshaftn Records-a Resource
for Genealogy Research". Landsmanshaftn (hometown societies) or
immigrant social organizations existed >from the late nineteenth
century to mid-twentieth century and were located in places where Jews
settled, such as the US, UK, South Africa, Australia, South Africa and
Israel. The organizations were formed by ex-residents of the same
locality, such as towns in Poland, Russia, Hungary, Romania, Germany,
Lithuania and Ukraine.

These organizations generated important, often underutilized records.
This session will explore landsmanshaftn records and demonstrate how a
genealogist can put them to good use. Even if your relative did not
belong to a landsmanshaftn group or did not live in a place that had
such as group, research may turn up previously unknown relatives from
the same town.

Avrohom Krauss, educator/rabbi/cantor, is a genealogist who
specializes in uniquely Jewish resources. His articles on
landsmanshaft records, Jewish social services, immigration research
and date discrepancies have been published in "Avotaynu". Krauss has
given presentations at IGRA in Jerusalem and at IAJGS conferences in
Los Angeles, Paris, Boston, Salt Lake City and Jerusalem. He is
scheduled to speak at this year's conference in Seattle.

Location: Bet Fisher, 5 Klausner Street, Ra'anana

Doors open at 19:00 Meeting begins at 19:30.

Cost: IGRA members-Free Admission Non-members-NIS 20

News Release: Announcement of Miriam Weiner Agreement with JewishGen Belarus SIG #ukraine

Nancy Holden
 

The JewishGen Belarus SIG is very pleased to announce a historic partnership with Miriam Weiner and The Routes to Roots Foundation. As a result of this agreement we have received a large amount of material collected by Miriam during her 20+ years of working in the archives of Belarus. 
 
The material includes numerous archive inventories and copies of archive documents (with summary translations for much of the material) including thousands of personal names >from over 50 towns in Belarus as well as links to/or excerpts >from Miriam's award-winning website. 
 
You can read more about Miriam and the agreement at:
 
http://www.jewishgen.org/Belarus/misc/MiriamWeiner/index.html
 
It will take us several months to review and index these materials but we hope to have the names appearing in at least a few towns indexed and searchable in time for the IAJGS conference in Seattle in August.

IGRA Meeting on June 28 in Ra'anana, Israel - Landsmanshaftn Records - a Resource for Genealogy Research #lithuania

Elena Bazes
 

Tuesday, June 28th in Ra'anana, Israel

Join us for the next meeting of the Israel Genealogy Research
Association (IGRA).

Avrohom Krauss will be speaking on Landsmanshaftn Records-a Resource
for Genealogy Research. Landsmanshaftn (hometown societies) or
immigrant social organizations existed >from the late nineteenth
century to mid-twentieth century and were located in places where Jews
settled, such as the US, UK, South Africa, Australia, South Africa and
Israel. The organizations were formed by ex-residents of the same
locality, such as towns in Poland, Russia, Hungary, Romania, Germany,
Lithuania and Ukraine.

These organizations generated important, often underutilized records.
This session will explore landsmanshaftn records and demonstrate how a
genealogist can put them to good use. Even if your relative did not
belong to a landsmanshaftn group or did not live in a place that had
such as group, research may turn up previously unknown relatives from
the same town.

Avrohom Krauss, educator/rabbi/cantor, is a genealogist who
specializes in uniquely Jewish resources. His articles on
landsmanshaft records, Jewish social services, immigration research
and date discrepancies have been published in Avotaynu. Krauss has
given presentations at IGRA in Jerusalem and at IAJGS conferences in
Los Angeles, Paris, Boston, Salt Lake City and Jerusalem. He is
scheduled to speak at this year's conference in Seattle.

Location: Bet Fisher, 5 Klausner Street, Ra'anana

Doors open at 19:00 Meeting begins at 19:30.

Cost: IGRA members-Free Admission Non-members-NIS 20
To join IGRA, go to http://genealogy.org.il/membership/
