John Paul Lowens, GerSig MODERATOR shared the
following important message with us:

On December 29, Susan King, the founder and President of
JewishGen spoke to the New York Jewish Genealogy Society and
answered questions >from those attending, including this one:

"Can you do anything about entries in the JGFF (Jewish Genealogy
Family Finder) database and other JewishGen data bases which
contain stale (out of date) Email addresses and other contact data ? "

(The JGFF allows anyone to find out who is researching a given FAMILY
NAME or town of origin or NAME/town combination. The FTJP [Family
Tree of the Jewish People] offers similar information and more.)

To know that another researcher has been working on your family history
and not be able to contact that person can be very frustrating. But if you
change your Email (or snail mail) address and / or telephone number and
don't also change your JGFF and other JewishGen entries that will be the
case.

It would be a wonderful way to begin this exciting new year for
JewishGen if all of us would go to the JGFF at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/ click on "LIST"

and there review and update your entries in the database.

(You will need to have your JewishGen RESEARCHER CODE and your
JewishGen Password to make any desired changes.)

Those numbers will become more important in the future when enhancements
to the JewishGen Site are added. Be sure that yours are available and backed
up safely. (Susan said.)

If you have not yet listed your family names and towns in the JGFF you
should do so soon. This will possibly help your research and that of others
and will provide you with a JewishGen researcher code and password which
will become more important to you in the future. (According to Susan.)

If you can, take advantage of the "lifetime Email" service that is provided
by many universities to their former students. Or, get a "lifetime email"
address >from bigfoot.com or POBOX.com or other services that provde them.

Mail sent to such a "lifetime Email address" is immediately forwarded to
your current Email inbox so long as you inform the "lifetime" provider of
your current address.

JewishGen is planning to devote volunteer and staff time and precious money
to try to correct "stale" Email information in the JGFF and other data
bases. (According to Susan King's remarks yesterday)

SURELY THERE ARE MUCH BETTER WAYS TO USE THAT MONEY AND EFFORT.

So, if you encounter a stale address for a member of this SIG in the
JGFF, please let us know about it.

Through our Forum we may be able to get a correction entered.

And please check your JGFF and other entries soon and be sure that they are
up to date. Thanks to all.

married Hans Joachim Gregor in 1919. I think she had two
sisters. Does anybody have any information on this family?

Is anybody researching the Lichtenstein family. They were Jewish!

Please send any information to my email address holthoffk@....

Re: Death Notice #southafrica

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

There is a difference between the South African Death Notice and Death
Certificate. The following is an explanation by Anne Lehmkuhl who is a
well-known South African researcher and is included on her web site along
with other helpful information (http://www.rupert.net/~lkool/):

"Death Notice:

First introduced in 1834. Completed soon after death, usually but not
always, by next-of-kin. It is a legal document used to inform the relevant
authorities of the death and is forwarded to the Master of the High Court,
where it becomes the founding document in the estate file. If there is no
estate the death notice will be archived. The Master of the High Court deals
with deceased estates. On the current death notice form there are options to
provide: date and place of birth; name of spouse(s) and children, including
married names of daughters; date and place of death; place of residence;
whether the deceased left property (moveable and immoveable). The extent and
accuracy of the information depends on the informant. The estate file
remains with the High Court for a specified period, after which it is
archived at the relevant archive depot.

Death Certificate:

First introduced at the Cape in 1895. It must always be completed by someone
who is considered legally competent to certify death, usually, but not
always, a doctor. It is a civil document and is sent to and archived by the
Department of Home Affairs. Usually the mortician obtains the original from
the doctor and files it with Home Affairs and the official certificates are
then issued. The mortician does this because he/she is first person who
requires it after the death - burial or cremation cannot take place without
it. Once the original certificate has been lodged with Home Affairs, they
issue official copies for a variety of uses - both legal and civil. A copy
of the death certificate is often, but not always, found in the estate file.
It does not include as much information as the death notice, but lists cause
of death."

The Death Notice in the Estate File of my Great Uncle Mordechai Choritz
enabled me to confirm my Great Aunt Chaia-Pese Bedil Choritz's maiden name
and other facts about the family and his business partner who was his
executor. Very handy to find. Unfortunately, not everyone has an estate or
died in South Africa.

An Exciting New Years Message from JewishGen #warsaw #poland

Susan E. King <susan.king@...>
 

As we embark on 2003, JewishGen will reach yet another milestone as the
leading Internet site for researching Jewish ancestry and Jewish
heritage. Connecting and re-connecting families through the open sharing
of information has become the JewishGen hallmark over these many years.
The spirit of cooperation and sharing, the spirit of building community
through the pioneering of the Internet has made JewishGen what it is
today. Thousands of hands at work created one of the most successful grass
roots efforts in the field of Jewish genealogy and perhaps even in the
Jewish world. A credit to all!

Marked by both great accomplishments and daunting challenges, JewishGen
has reached a pinnacle in our young life relying on our driving force
towards preserving the past for the present and into the future. But in
the background has been the nagging thought - how can we best preserve
JewishGen, ensure JewishGen's continuity, yet continue to reach out and
serve the growing needs of our constituents? Even more importantly, how
can we build on what we have created, taking it to even greater heights?
How can we continue to weave this web of information about our families,
their lives, our history, our heritage?

Our efforts throughout 15 years of growth, development and success have
not gone unnoticed and our prayers have been answered.

It is with great pleasure and excitement that we can announce today that
JewishGen will become part of one of the most outstanding and
distinguished institutions in New York City, The Museum of Jewish
Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust. This relationship will
become effective January 1, 2003, a new year that will indeed mark a new
era for JewishGen, and with it a new era for Jewish genealogy.

There is much to do over the coming weeks and months to provide as
seamless a transition as possible. We are committed to focusing our
energies on ensuring that valuable resources and research information
will be made available to the Jewish community worldwide as quickly as
possible. To make this happen, Michael Tobias and Warren Blatt, longtime
volunteers, will become full-time employees. They will now be in a
position to get the backlog of data flowing!

Additional information, along with other exciting announcements, will be
forthcoming throughout the next months as we work through the transition
process. We ask that you address any and all questions to
infomjh@... so they can be answered and made available
to JewishGen's constituency in a FAQ that will be online shortly.

We invite you to read the attached press release and become acquainted
with our new family. http://www.mjhnyc.org/new/index.htm

from JewishGen to all of you, we wish you a peaceful, prosperous and
healthy 2003.

JewishGen, World's Leading Internet Jewish Genealogy Resource, To Join
Museum of Jewish Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust

(New York, NY) - Effective January 1, 2003, JewishGen, a world renowned
Jewish Genealogy website, will become a division of the Museum of Jewish
Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust in New York City. The
Boards of the Museum and JewishGen approved the plan in December.

An Internet pioneer, JewishGen was founded in 1987 by Susan E. King and
has grown >from a bulletin board with only 150 users to a major grass
roots effort bringing together hundreds of thousands of individuals
worldwide in a virtual community centered on discovering Jewish
ancestral roots and history. On JewishGen, researchers share
genealogical information, techniques, and case studies. With a growing
database of more than seven million records, including some material
from previous centuries, the website is a forum for the exchange of
information about Jewish life and family history and has enabled
thousands of families to connect and re-connect in a way never before
possible.

"For many Jews, knowledge of their family history perished in the
Holocaust; JewishGen fills in the missing pieces of the puzzle," said
Dr. David G. Marwell, Museum Director. "Our Museum allows visitors to
identify with the themes of 20th century Jewish history and has helped
our public to identify with Holocaust survivors and opened new doors of
understanding. With JewishGen, we will be able to take our message
worldwide."

"Genealogy research is much more than just searching for names, dates
and places," said Susan King, founder of JewishGen. "It is vitally
important that researchers also understand the details of Jewish
heritage and history; the Museum provides context for the lives being
researched. That's what makes this relationship so exciting. Museum of
Jewish Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust will also allow us
to professionalize what has been an all-volunteer effort."

Ms. King, who will report to Dr. Marwell, will be the Managing Director
of JewishGen and will remain in Houston where JewishGen is based.

Among JewishGen's features are the Family Tree of the Jewish People
containing data on more than two million people; the Yizkor Book
Project, an ongoing effort to translate memorial books which contain
previously inaccessible information on the fate of Jewish communities
and their inhabitants affected by the Holocaust; and the Holocaust
Global Registry, a central database of and for Holocaust survivors and
their families. The Holocaust Global Registry is already responsible
for re-connecting several families after more than 60 years of
separation.

The Museum is located on the waterfront of Lower Manhattan in Battery
Park City. The Museum's core exhibition is organized around three
themes: Jewish Life a Century Ago, The War Against the Jews, and Jewish
Renewal. With more than 2,000 photographs, 800 artifacts, and 24
original documentary films on display, the Museum uses personal stories
and artifacts to present 20th century Jewish history and the Holocaust
in a context of universal truths that speak to people of all ages and
backgrounds. The Museum is in the middle of an 82,000-square-foot
construction project that will contain a theater, classrooms, and
special exhibition space, among other facilities. The East Wing, set to
open in fall 2003, will enhance the Museum's mission of remembrance and
education.

ZEIDEL #lithuania

Jackye Sullins <jsullins@...>
 

I have a new name for my family tree and wonder if it sounds familiar to
anyone. My great grandfather evidently remarried In Shilel (Silale) after
my great grandmother died. She was a widow by the name of Liba ZEIDEL (this was her maiden name) who was born in Saiuliai abt. 1885 and lived in
Taurage. She was the daughter of Israel and Chava ZEIDEL.

I would appreciate hearing >from anyone who might have her in their tree and
would also be interested in knowing if the name was also spelled SEIDEL.

Re: Update: Actually there were 4 Jewish Dailies in Kovno #lithuania

Mimi Pais <lantali@...>
 

I asked my father what daily Jewish newspapers existed
in Kovno when he was there as a student pre-World
War II. As of 1939 or so, he said that there were
actually 4 daily Jewish newspapers that he can recall.
They are (1) Yiddishe Shtime - by far the largest and
most popular. (2) Dos Word - The Word, a Socialist
Zionist paper (3) Volksblatt - Jewish, Leftist,
anti-Zionist and (4) the afternoon edition of Yiddishe
Shtime which was called Hayntike Nyes - Today's News.

He also recalls a revisionist newspaper but thinks
that it came out once a week.
I hope this helps someone.

re Seeking family of London Blitz bomb victim Nat JACOBS #general

A J <genealicej@...>
 

I have just learnt additional information about Anita JACOBS,
daughter of Nat and Mary JACOBS. Nat was a victim of the first
Blitz bombing raid on September 7th 1940. After the War, his
daughter Anita was married to the manager of Barclays Bank in
Gants Hill, Ilford. Does this ring a bell with anyone?

degrees of removed cousins #general

Michael Bernet wrote:
I think that we genealogists are best served by the old
Hebrew style: each link is very specifically spelled out.
Let me add to Michael's valid conclusion that English-language
terms such as "first cousin twice removed" are imprecise because
they do not indicate which of the two cousins is two generations
older than the other. It would be like using the same word for
nephew and uncle.
