Looking for the death record of Karl BARDACH, early-mid-1930s #germany

Dick Plotz
 

My wife's great-grandfather Karl BARDACH, born in Vienna 1857/59,
lived in Duesseldorf and vacationed in the south of France. In the
summer, some time between 1932-35, he died either in Duesseldorf or in
France; my late mother-in-law was not sure which, or which year. What
would be my best route for finding his date of death?

Looking for information about Old Neolog Cemetery, Arad, Romania #romania

Jake Jacobs
 

I just found a record on Jewishgen reflecting that a g'g'uncle was buried in the Old Neolog Cemetery
in Arad in 1910. His name was Mor Steinberger. This is the identifying information: dod 03-Feb-1910 ;
Section: Dreapta (Grour ID 29); Row 36; Grave 26; Book ID 2 Book Page 374 .

My question: Are there photographs or other records of this cemetery?

Thank you very much.

Jewish Calendar needed #general

jeremy frankel
 

Dear Genners

For many years I have used Frank Yellin’s Jewish Calendar on my computer. It served
my needs perfectly for my genealogical research. Now I’ve upgraded to a newer
laptop (MacBook Pro running 10.12.5 Sierra) and Frank’s calendar has had to be
relegated to the trash. I need a new one that can be downloaded into my laptop,
“not” a cloud-based app. I want a month to a view displayingl the Hebrew dates,
festivals as well as the secular Gregorian dates. I want to be able to insert a
year (any year — Frank’s range was 1–2999) then pick the month and see everything
in that month.

Is there one out there that can fulfill all these requirements?

Thanks in advance — and Happy 4th.

Re: Bar association archives #general

ron arons
 

Jackye,

I stand corrected. There are certain things that can be found online:

- books.google.com has the 1917-1918 'Chicago Law Directory' (possibly the
Sullivan's directory - see more below). On page 46, Louis Gottlieb is listed as
being at 523-105 N. Clark St, Chicago.

- books.google.com also has the 1922 edition of Martindale-Hubble. On page 996,
Louis I Gottlieb is listed as being at 179 W. Washington St in Chicago.

- old copies of Martindale-Hubble have been digitized for years 1868-1963. However
you need a subscription to HeinOnline to access the directories. You need to find
a law library (or law school library) that subscribes to HeinOnline. See:
https://aclawlib.wordpress.com/2016/03/01/old-school-resource-martindale-hubbell-archived-on-heinonline/
(MODERATOR: http://tinyurl.com/y8ue7qcu )

- I google the terms 'louis gottlieb attorney indiana'. One thing that came up in
the results set was an article >from the Indianapolis Star dated May 23, 1931. While
I could not read the article itself, the abstract had Louis Gottlieb's name as well
as the word Chicago.

- I also checked ebay. There just happens to be a listing for the
Martindale-Hubble directory for 1929.

In addition to Martindale-Hubble, there has been a directory of attorneys in
Illinois called Sullivan's Law Directory. See:
https://www.lawbulletin.com/legal/practice-solutions/sullivans-law-directory/
Maybe some local law library has old copies of this.

Are there any archives online regarding former attorneys? I am trying to
trace Louis Gottlieb who was an attorney in Indiana and Illinois circa 1910s
- early 1930s.

JewishGen News - Edition #4 #usa

Groll, Avraham
 

Dear JewishGen Family,

A few months ago, we inaugurated the first edition of the "JewishGen
News." Since that time, I hope you have found the periodic editions
to be both inspirational and informative. In this issue, as opposed
to offering a summary of recent progress and accomplishments (of
which there are many), I would like to share some news and
information which speaks to the broader goals and objectives of our
vital organization.

Each day, JewishGen.org provides thousands of people throughout the
world with the opportunity to research their family lineage, ask
questions, exchange information, and learn >from others. I am sure
anyone who engages with JewishGen is awed by the extraordinary and
vital resource it has become. Simply put, JewishGen is now the most
important resource for Jewish genealogy in the world. The breadth,
depth and diversity of its offerings, >from both an archival and
networking perspective, is incredible, and unparalleled.

Most remarkable, all of this has been done with a small staff and a
devoted team of volunteers, who regardless of their location, join
in the pursuit of a common goal - the preservation of Jewish family
history and heritage for future generations.

Since the very beginning of JewishGen's existence, we have valued
free access to information, offering all of our resources at no
charge. These values are fundamental to everything we do. In this
regard, we are grateful that many members of the broader Jewish
community have recognized the importance of our work, and have
financially supported JewishGen's efforts, permitting us to
operate "in the black" for nine consecutive years.

But success is measured with an eye on the future, and in this
regard, I am pleased to announce that we have begun a comprehensive,
system-wide, modernization of JewishGen's technological
infrastructure. We're very excited to be entering a new phase of
JewishGen's growth. Our team has identified Solr and MySQL database
technology as the most suitable platforms to usher in a new era of
innovation, and thus maximize our ability to help Jewish family
researchers. This effort has been underway since this past February,
and we have developed a comprehensive plan with metrics and
benchmarks embedded in the workflow, enabling us to perform
continuous evaluations throughout the duration of the project. As
part of this effort, we will be hiring additional staff at JewishGen
Headquarters, which is based at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New
York City.

The first phase of this effort is scheduled to be completed by early
Spring of 2018. At that point, we will immediately begin the second
phase of the modernization effort, which will focus on efficiency and
the user experience.

In terms of leadership, we are extremely fortunate to have a new
Board of Directors (elected two weeks ago), comprised of outstanding
leaders and innovators who bring experience and expertise navigating
the various complexities which manifest themselves within any non-
profit, and particularly one as broad and diverse as JewishGen.

The JewishGen Board is led by Bruce Ratner, a successful businessman
and philanthropist, and long-time supporter of JewishGen. He is
joined by Michael Glickman, President & CEO of the Museum of Jewish
Heritage; Peter Kalikow, President of H. J. Kalikow & Company, LLC;
and E. Randol Schoenberg, a Los Angeles based attorney who was
recently portrayed in the film "Woman of Gold," and who is well
known to our JewishGen community in his role as the coordinator for
the JewishGen Austria-Czech SIG.

On May 1st, I was fortunate to celebrate nine years working for
JewishGen. I never would have imagined such a long tenure, and I
consider each and every user to be part of our valued JewishGen
family. Together, we have celebrated many success stories, and it is
my deepest wish that each of you will experience the joys which come
from connecting with relatives, and understanding our collective
Jewish history and heritage.

Thank you to everyone who has offered comments and suggestions the
past few months. Your feedback is always welcome, and I encourage
you to contact me anytime via phone (646-437-4326) or email
(agroll@JewishGen.org). With your continued help and support, we look
forward to taking JewishGen to the next level!

Wishing you all the best,

Avraham Groll, Director, JewishGen.org

PS. If you have not yet done so, please consider making a contribution
to our Spring Appeal by visiting:

Your support will be greatly appreciated and help us continue
