RootsTech Developer Challenge - Tammy Hepps wins for Treelines! #hungary

Pamela Weisberger
 

I would like to congratulate Jewish genealogical community member,
Tammy Hepps, for winning the grand prize at the recent RootsTech
Conference in Salt Lake City in the 2013 Developer Challenge
competition, as well as being awarded first prize in the "share"
category, for creating "Treelines," a storytelling platform for people
to write and share their family stories either using the family tree
they already have or building one as they write. The official launch
is soon, and you can sign up to be officially "invited," but you can
also take a tour of this exceptional family history program here:

https://www.treelines.com/tour/

Home page: http://www.treelines.com

Nearly 20 developers participated in the 2013 Developer Challenge by
submitting projects that demonstrated technical innovations for family
history. >from these, a panel of judges selected six finalists. The
final 3 winners were announced at RootsTech during the Keynote on
Friday, March 22.

Here's how it works: tens of millions of people around the world are
interested in family history but people need software
solutions=97whether on the desktop, online, or through mobile
delivery=97that help them engage and succeed in their efforts to
discover, preserve, and share their family history. The Challenge
invites developers to create an application or service that introduces
a compelling new concept or innovation for family history that has
practical uses for genealogists and historians.

It's pretty amazing that two years running, two "nice Jewish girls"
(as I'm sure they don't mind being referred to) snagged top prizes
against very tough competition -- last year's runner-up winner being
Gesher Galicia's own, Brooke Schreier Ganz -- who also contributes
extensively to the Hungarian SIG's projects -- for creating Leafseek:
A Genealogy Search Engine in a Box: www.leafseek.com. The Leafseek
platform is currently being used by the All Galicia Database and the
IGRA (Israel Genealogical Research Assocation) All Israel Database.
Both women worked for well over a year on these projects and we are
all the beneficiaries. (If you are curious to view the other entries
in detail, go here: http://rootstech.org/challenges/overview)

Bravo to Tammy for winning in 2013 and Brooke in 2012 and for their
continuing contributions to the world of Jewish genealogy!

Yizkor Book Project, March 2013 #hungary

bounce-2585471-772961@...
 

Shalom,

Whilst you munch on your matzo, I will provide you with something to read
about what happened in the Yizkor Book Project during March.

For a start, as I predicted in previous reports, there were a number of
projects that were completed this month.

- Dotnuva, Lithuania (Letters >from Dotnuva)
- Kremenets, Ukraine (Memorial book of Krzemieniec)
- Szczuczyn, Poland (>from the Inferno Back to Life)

The completion of the Kremenets book, in particular, comes after many years
of dedicated coordination by Ron Doctor and Ellen Garshick and quite a few
volunteers who deserve a deal of thanks for their splendid translations. The
result of all this team's efforts has now been rewarded by the placement of
the whole book online but they certainly aren't resting on their laurels and
the translations of other Kremenets Yizkor Books continues on with great
earnest.

It is also important for me to note the completion of the Szczuczyn project
which is a personal memoir belong to Itzhak Wertman z"l, who sadly passed
away quite recently. I had the honor of being in contact this fine gentleman
over many years and, as with many of the Holocaust survivors, he saw the
great importance of making the Yizkor Book material readily available to the
present generation and those to come. We are deeply indebted to him for his
participation with the YB Project.

Now in order for our project to continue and expand, we are always on the
lookout for volunteers to help out in the wide scope of activities the
Yizkor Book Project involves. So, if you are able to translate >from Hebrew
or Yiddish, edit translated material or help type up English pages, your
assistance in these fields would be most welcome and I would be very pleased
to hear >from you.

Now to facts and figures for March, during this last month we have added
these 2 new projects:

- Dunajska Streda, Slovakia (A Memorial to the Jewish Community of
Dunaszerdahely)

Yizkor Book Project, March 2013 #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Whilst you munch on your matzo, I will provide you with something to read
about what happened in the Yizkor Book Project during March.

For a start, as I predicted in previous reports, there were a number of
projects that were completed this month.

- Dotnuva, Lithuania (Letters >from Dotnuva)
- Kremenets, Ukraine (Memorial book of Krzemieniec)
- Szczuczyn, Poland (>from the Inferno Back to Life)

The completion of the Kremenets book, in particular, comes after many years
of dedicated coordination by Ron Doctor and Ellen Garshick and quite a few
volunteers who deserve a deal of thanks for their splendid translations. The
result of all this team's efforts has now been rewarded by the placement of
the whole book online but they certainly aren't resting on their laurels and
the translations of other Kremenets Yizkor Books continues on with great
earnest.

It is also important for me to note the completion of the Szczuczyn project
which is a personal memoir belong to Itzhak Wertman z"l, who sadly passed
away quite recently. I had the honor of being in contact this fine gentleman
over many years and, as with many of the Holocaust survivors, he saw the
great importance of making the Yizkor Book material readily available to the
present generation and those to come. We are deeply indebted to him for his
participation with the YB Project.

Now in order for our project to continue and expand, we are always on the
lookout for volunteers to help out in the wide scope of activities the
Yizkor Book Project involves. So, if you are able to translate >from Hebrew
or Yiddish, edit translated material or help type up English pages, your
assistance in these fields would be most welcome and I would be very pleased
to hear >from you.

Now to facts and figures for March, during this last month we have added
these 2 new projects:

Dunaszerdahely)

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Whilst you munch on your matzo, I will provide you with something to read
about what happened in the Yizkor Book Project during March.

For a start, as I predicted in previous reports, there were a number of
projects that were completed this month.

- Dotnuva, Lithuania (Letters >from Dotnuva)
- Kremenets, Ukraine (Memorial book of Krzemieniec)
- Szczuczyn, Poland (>from the Inferno Back to Life)

The completion of the Kremenets book, in particular, comes after many years
of dedicated coordination by Ron Doctor and Ellen Garshick and quite a few
volunteers who deserve a deal of thanks for their splendid translations. The
result of all this team's efforts has now been rewarded by the placement of
the whole book online but they certainly aren't resting on their laurels and
the translations of other Kremenets Yizkor Books continues on with great
earnest.

It is also important for me to note the completion of the Szczuczyn project
which is a personal memoir belong to Itzhak Wertman z"l, who sadly passed
away quite recently. I had the honor of being in contact this fine gentleman
over many years and, as with many of the Holocaust survivors, he saw the
great importance of making the Yizkor Book material readily available to the
present generation and those to come. We are deeply indebted to him for his
participation with the YB Project.

Now in order for our project to continue and expand, we are always on the
lookout for volunteers to help out in the wide scope of activities the
Yizkor Book Project involves. So, if you are able to translate >from Hebrew
or Yiddish, edit translated material or help type up English pages, your
assistance in these fields would be most welcome and I would be very pleased
to hear >from you.

Now to facts and figures for March, during this last month we have added
these 2 new projects:

Dunaszerdahely)

Vital Records for towns in Wilno District #poland

Peggy Freedman <peggyf@...>
 

Vital records for several towns in the Wilno District (which was in
Poland between World Wars I and II) have been translated by the Vilnius
District Research Group of LitvakSIG. If your ancestors were married,
divorced or died in
Jasiunai,
Naujoji Vilnia,
Nemencine,
Paberze,
we may have translated the record of their life event.

Note that the Privacy Law in Lithuania is slightly different than the
Privacy Law in Poland. In Lithuania, records are confidential for 100
