Don't Miss the JEWISH GENEALOGICAL EVENT OF THE YEAR #ukraine

JGS of Canada (Toronto) <info@...>
 

Only a month to go until the 22nd IAJGS International Conference on Jewish
Genealogy. If you haven’t registered yet here are a few things to consider.

1. The Event
Look at the Conference Programme at www.jgstoronto2002.ca. There has never
been as comprehensive a programme. It features some of our old standby
speakers plus a whole new range of exciting experts to entertain, enthral
and educate. As some recent news article have said, the heroes of Jewish
Genealogy are congregating in Toronto!

2. The Venue
Toronto is a great city and very safe. The Hotel setting for the Conference
is unbelievable with over 35,000 sq. ft. dedicated to our Conference on a
fully secure floor accessible only to Conference attendees. Over 14 Vendors
will congregate in our Exhibition area with booths to sell books, maps,
equipment, software, and more. As always, Avotaynu and JewishGen will be
there to show you their newest items.

3. Research
The combined Resource and Computer Rooms will be the biggest ever. This
week we expect to be able to announce several new major acquisitions which
have never been available together before and will provide a major resource
for immigration research. Sample the latest software >from Family Tree
Maker, Ancestry.com and DorotTree. The Computer Room sponsor, Ancestry.com,
will provide complementary access to their incredible databases. Check your
email.

4. Galleries
This year for the first time, the Conference will delight with several
exhibitions of art and photography with a genealogical orientation. See the
family tree displays by local Jewish schools. See Jewish tapestries from
the Pomegranate Society! See genealogically inspired art >from invited
artists. See a portion of the incredible internationally renowned
photographic exhibition of life in Poland: And I Can Still See Their Faces.
Images of Polish Jews (see
http://motlc.wiesenthal.org/exhibits/faces/index.html).

5. Conference Extras
Tired after a long day? On Tuesday and Wednesday nights, you can attend the
Toronto Jewish Genealogic Film Festival. Assembled with the help of The
Toronto Jewish Film Festival, you can relax with a wide range of
documentaries, to be announced shortly. Want to get away? How about a trip
to Niagara Falls (or send your spouse who thinks genealogy is nuts!). Take
trips to archives or tour old Jewish Toronto.

6. Breakfasts and Luncheons
Join Breakfasts with the Experts Monday through Thursday. Over a
continental breakfast sit and chat with some of the top experts in a wide
range of fields. The guest experts change every day so check the Conference
programme and attend as many as you want. Also on Monday through Wednesday,
there will be two Sponsored Luncheons. Join Avotaynu to hear Gary Mokotoff’
s views on The Future of Jewish Genealogy or be entertained by German expert
Emily C. Rose with The New Berlitz Story: Uncovering the Legend. Join
JewishGen’s luncheon on Tuesday to hear Warren Blatt and Michael Tobias talk
about how to use JewishGen databases or hear Mike Getz talk about
Latvia-Lithuania-Belarus: Common Interests and Jewish Communities. On
Wednesday Go to the Ukrainian SIG luncheon and here Olga Muzychuk, director
of the Central State Historical Archives of Ukraine in Kyiv, or at the
Bohemian/Moravian (BOHMOR) SIG Luncheon, hear Peter Landé, holocaust expert
and an IAJGS Lifetime Achievement Award for his work in identifying sources
of information on Holocaust victims and survivors. LUNCHES MUST BE BOOKED
SOON SO SIGN UP NOW FOR THESE EXCITING VENUES!

7. Closing Banquet
This year’s Closing Banquet will be the best ever. A pre-banquet reception
and a full course kosher meal will tantalize your palate. Live
entertainment will delight your soul. An exciting, dynamic surprise
internationally famous speaker will challenge your mind and inspire your
devotion to Jewish genealogy! This is the culmination of the Conference and
an event not to be missed. If you haven’t registered for the banquet, go to
the Conference website and do so NOW!

8. Camaraderie and Networking
Maybe the best part of the Conference experience is the chance to meet your
fellow enthusiasts. Many a long-standing problem in research has been
solved in discussions at the many tables available to sit and schmoose.
Many a new friend has been made. All of this in the safe secure environment
of the largest Conference venue ever.

9. Easy to Get To.
Toronto is less than a day’s drive >from a huge percentage of the US
population. If you live in the northeaster or Midwest US, you have no
excuse not to attend. If you live in other parts of the US or the world, we
have fast safe connections >from all major airports. If you live in Europe,
we speak French and should be here. The English should support the
colonies. The Israeli’s should come and meet their Counsel General who will
attend. Canadians can meet some of their leaders, who will be here and help
us welcome the world.

TIME IS SHORT! If you haven’t registered for the Conference or the various
events DO SO NOW!

NAEH/ASHCANASI of Yerushalayim #rabbinic

Jomarie <jomarie41@...>
 

BSD"

I have been looking into my own family and neglected my husband's
side. Rabbi Avraham C. NAEH >from what my husband has told me, was the
Rav of the Bucharian Jews and an author of quite a few s'forim on the
halachik measurements in many areas. I was told that he traces his
roots to the daughters of one of the Tzemach Tzedek.

Anyone out there familiar with the family history? There are quite a
few cousins in Israel. I do know that I had read and was told that he
was a friend and worked with Rav Yosef Chayim Sonnenfeld. I would like
to know any stories or information having to do with him other than
the ones in the book "The Heavenly City."

I would also like to know why and when he used the last name
ASHCANASIE (probably not the correct spelling.)

A very distantly related person met us and told us that the family was
traced to either Portugal or Spain. How they did that I would love to
know and >from further up they could trace to the House of Dovid- thrue
the Tzemach Tzedek . Anyone ???

standby speakers plus a whole new range of exciting experts to entertain,
enthral and educate. As some recent news article have said, the heroes of
Jewish Genealogy are congregating in Toronto!

2. The Venue
Toronto is a great city and very safe. The Hotel setting for the
Conference is unbelievable with over 35,000 sq. ft. dedicated to our
Conference on a fully secure floor accessible only to Conference
attendees. Over 14 Vendors will congregate in our Exhibition area with
booths to sell books, maps, equipment, software, and more. As always,
Avotaynu and JewishGen will be there to show you their newest items.

3. Research
The combined Resource and Computer Rooms will be the biggest ever. This
week we expect to be able to announce several new major acquisitions which
have never been available together before and will provide a major resource
for immigration research. Sample the latest software >from Family Tree
Maker, Ancestry.com and DorotTree. The Computer Room sponsor,
Ancestry.com, will provide complementary access to their incredible
databases. Check your email.

4. Galleries
This year for the first time, the Conference will delight with several
exhibitions of art and photography with a genealogical orientation. See
the family tree displays by local Jewish schools. See Jewish tapestries
from the Pomegranate Society! See genealogically inspired art >from invited
artists. See a portion of the incredible internationally renowned
photographic exhibition of life in Poland: And I Can Still See Their
Faces. Images of Polish Jews (see
http://motlc.wiesenthal.org/exhibits/faces/index.html ).

5. Conference Extras
Tired after a long day? On Tuesday and Wednesday nights, you can attend
the Toronto Jewish Genealogic Film Festival. Assembled with the help of
The Toronto Jewish Film Festival, you can relax with a wide range of
documentaries, to be announced shortly. Want to get away? How about a
trip to Niagara Falls (or send your spouse who thinks genealogy is
nuts!). Take trips to archives or tour old Jewish Toronto.

6. Breakfasts and Luncheons
Join Breakfasts with the Experts Monday through Thursday. Over a
continental breakfast sit and chat with some of the top experts in a wide
range of fields. The guest experts change every day so check the
Conference programme and attend as many as you want. Also on Monday
through Wednesday, there will be two Sponsored Luncheons. Join Avotaynu
to hear Gary Mokotoff’s views on The Future of Jewish Genealogy or be
entertained by German expert Emily C. Rose with The New Berlitz Story:
Uncovering the Legend. Join JewishGen’s luncheon on Tuesday to hear
Warren Blatt and Michael Tobias talk about how to use JewishGen databases
or hear Mike Getz talk about Latvia-Lithuania-Belarus: Common Interests
and Jewish Communities. On Wednesday Go to the Ukrainian SIG luncheon and
here Olga Muzychuk, director of the Central State Historical Archives of
Ukraine in Kyiv, or at the Bohemian/Moravian (BOHMOR) SIG Luncheon, hear
Peter Landé, holocaust expert and an IAJGS Lifetime Achievement Award for
his work in identifying sources of information on Holocaust victims and
survivors. Lunches must be booked soon so sign up now for these exciting
venues!

7. Closing Banquet
This year’s Closing Banquet will be the best ever. A pre-banquet reception
and a full course kosher meal will tantalize your palate. Live
entertainment will delight your soul. An exciting, dynamic surprise
internationally famous speaker will challenge your mind and inspire your
devotion to Jewish genealogy! This is the culmination of the Conference
and an event not to be missed. If you haven’t registered for the banquet,
go to the Conference website and do so *now*!

8. Camaraderie and Networking
Maybe the best part of the Conference experience is the chance to meet your
fellow enthusiasts. Many a long-standing problem in research has been
solved in discussions at the many tables available to sit and schmoose.
Many a new friend has been made. All of this in the safe secure
environment of the largest Conference venue ever.

9. Easy to Get To.
Toronto is less than a day’s drive >from a huge percentage of the US
population. If you live in the northeaster or Midwest US, you have no
excuse not to attend. If you live in other parts of the US or the world,
we have fast safe connections >from all major airports. If you live in
Europe, we speak French and should be here. The English should support the
colonies. The Israeli’s should come and meet their Counsel General who
will attend. Canadians can meet some of their leaders, who will be here
and help us welcome the world.

**Time is short!** If you haven’t registered for the Conference or the
various events do so now!

Visit our Website at www.jgstoronto2002.ca and join the Jewish
genealogical world at its biggest event ever - the 22nd IAJGS
International Conference on Jewish Genealogy!

ROSANES #rabbinic

BudElWood@...
 

Dear List,

Salve/Sarah ROSANES (m. SHUFRO) was my grandfather's grandmother. She
was born about 1840, and married Shneyer/Sidney SHUFRO of Viliyampol
(Slobodka/Kovno) before immigrating to Boston with sons and daughter
in the 1870s -- to begin the existence of coast-to-coast SHUFROs. She
brought with her a history of about 300 years of rabbinical ancestors.

Question: In histories of the Sephardic ROSANES rabbinical family
which originated in Castellvi Di Rosanes and moved thru Isle of
Rhodes, Bulgaria and Turkey, there is mention of a branch that went to
Poland/Lithuania. I am seeking names of other ROSANES people from
that area, or names of towns where people with this surname lived in
that area... in other words, I would like to try to link this ancestor
with another person or place in Poland/Lithuania. Thank you very
much.

Sincerely,

Ellie May Shufro
