I received a few messages >from readers and I stand corrected in my posting
regarding the Hildesheimer Seminary whose official name was Rabbiner Seminar
für das Orthodoxe Judenthum. It was founded in Berlin in 1873 & closed by
the Nazis in 1938. The National Library in Jerusalem has student rosters
beginning in the 1870s. Although I do not recall the exact year but I did
see one dating >from the 1930s. Sorry for the typo and thanks to those who
called it to my attention.

Chassidic Rabbi Ziskind MEISELS #rabbinic

Lainey Melnick <lainey.melnick@...>
 

Since I wrote last, I found a Hebrew note below which I'm having some
trouble translating correctly, but it says that Rabbi Moshe ben
Mordechai MEISELS ( b 1759 Vilna) had a brother, Rabbi Ziskind and I
can't really understand the abbreviations of what it means. Has anyone
heard of this rabbi or understand the abbreviation after the name?
Someone else had told me they thought it meant >from Viedziai. Is this right?

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=19474

Possible Translation: Brother: Hasid Rabbi Ziskind Mwidz - mentioned in
a note to the Rebbe means Rabbi Moshe Meizlish it describes is a
chronology of events related to the Napoleonic War and the departure
Admoh"z.

Thank you,

Lainey Melnick

Breakfast With the Experts in Washington, DC #sephardic

31st IAJGS Conference <dc2011_conference@...>
 

Need to break through brick walls? Be sure to attend a "Breakfast with the
Experts” event at the conference!

The Conference has arranged to hold seven “Breakfast with the Experts”
events. Each one will include a kosher buffet breakfast in the luxurious
Constitution Ballroom of the Grand Hyatt Washington, the Conference hotel.

For those that haven’t attended them before, sharing a “Breakfast with the
Experts” is another way for researchers of all levels to benefit. After an
enjoyable, informal breakfast with an expert in a particular field, or
enjoying such a breakfast with other attendees interested in the same topic,
that expert will provide an “in-depth overview” of the issues involved in
researching that topic. Then the floor will be thrown open to questions from
attendees; those questions can be quite specific. The time available is
deliberately set up to allow for addressing as many questions as possible,
so that attendees benefit to the maximum by being there.

This year’s Conference has organized seven such “Breakfast with the Expert”
events, spread out over four days, to not crowd attendees’ schedules. They
consist of the following topics, spanning five tracks of subject matter,
with these Experts. (Please see the Conference website and schedule for more
detail, including a description of each topic.)

Monday “Researching Rascals and Hard to Find Folks” Ron Arons & Mike
Karsen
Tuesday “>from Bratislava to Budapest to Baia Mare: Tips on Travel and
Research in Greater Hungary” Robert Friedman & Vivian Kahn
Tuesday “The Role of Genetics in Genealogy Stephen Morse & Bennett
Greenspan
Wednesday "Yad Vashem: Portal to Connections and Discoveries” Cynthia
Wroclawski
Wednesday “Breakfast with the German Research Experts” Roger Lustig &
Jeanette Rosenberg
Thursday “Practicing Safe Computing” Hal Bookbinder
Thursday “Overcoming Hurdles in Polish Research” Stanley Diamond &
Judith Frazin

As you see >from the caliber of these experts, attending these breakfasts
(and certainly, you can sign up for more than one) are tailor-made
opportunities to fill In gaps in your research, bypass some brick walls you
already may have encountered, OR--- get a “ground level” idea of how best to
plunge into researching a particular ancestral area, type of record, or
issue. Please come armed to each Breakfast with questions for the Expert,
you’ll benefit more that way!

Sessions are limited to 35 attendees. You can easily sign up for them
online. However, please do so BEFORE JULY 31, after which registration is
closed for them. Go over to www.DC2011.org, and register for them, or other
parts of this feature-filled Conference! See you there!

The Jews in the Well, Norwich, England #dna

Judy Simon
 

There has been a lot of buzz about the remains of the bodies tossed
into a well in Norwich, England in the Middle Ages. DNA analysis of
the remains determined that the victims were undoubtedly Jewish.
Here is a link to the article:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-13855238

A discussion group has been started on Facebook about the mtDNA of
the Jews in the well, several of whom are in the common Ashkenazi
haplogroup K1a1b1a; the discussion relates to all Jews, as most
Ashkenazi Jews (and many non-Ashkenazim too) may descend >from this
Medieval Jewish family hypothesized to have been thrown in the well
during a pogrom in Norwich in 1190. Here is a link to the discussion
group:

your research. If you=92re a beginner or a more experienced researcher,
this is a perfect opportunity to ask questions and get useful advice
from people who can help you research your German Jewish family history.

Breakfast With the Experts in Washington, DC #germany #poland #danzig #gdansk

31st IAJGS Conference <dc2011_conference@...>
 

Need to break through brick walls? Be sure to attend a "Breakfast with the
Experts” event at the conference!

The Conference has arranged to hold seven “Breakfast with the Experts”
events. Each one will include a kosher buffet breakfast in the luxurious
Constitution Ballroom of the Grand Hyatt Washington, the Conference hotel.

For those that haven’t attended them before, sharing a “Breakfast with the
Experts” is another way for researchers of all levels to benefit. After an
enjoyable, informal breakfast with an expert in a particular field, or
enjoying such a breakfast with other attendees interested in the same topic,
that expert will provide an “in-depth overview” of the issues involved in
researching that topic. Then the floor will be thrown open to questions from
attendees; those questions can be quite specific. The time available is
deliberately set up to allow for addressing as many questions as possible,
so that attendees benefit to the maximum by being there.

This year’s Conference has organized seven such “Breakfast with the Expert”
events, spread out over four days, to not crowd attendees’ schedules. They
consist of the following topics, spanning five tracks of subject matter,
with these Experts. (Please see the Conference website and schedule for more
detail, including a description of each topic.)

Monday “Researching Rascals and Hard to Find Folks” Ron Arons & Mike
Karsen
Tuesday “>from Bratislava to Budapest to Baia Mare: Tips on Travel and
Research in Greater Hungary” Robert Friedman & Vivian Kahn
Tuesday “The Role of Genetics in Genealogy Stephen Morse & Bennett
Greenspan
Wednesday "Yad Vashem: Portal to Connections and Discoveries” Cynthia
Wroclawski
Wednesday “Breakfast with the German Research Experts” Roger Lustig &
Jeanette Rosenberg
Thursday “Practicing Safe Computing” Hal Bookbinder
Thursday “Overcoming Hurdles in Polish Research” Stanley Diamond &
Judith Frazin

As you see >from the caliber of these experts, attending these breakfasts
(and certainly, you can sign up for more than one) are tailor-made
opportunities to fill In gaps in your research, bypass some brick walls you
already may have encountered, OR--- get a “ground level” idea of how best to
plunge into researching a particular ancestral area, type of record, or
issue. Please come armed to each Breakfast with questions for the Expert,
you’ll benefit more that way!

Sessions are limited to 35 attendees. You can easily sign up for them
online. However, please do so BEFORE JULY 31, after which registration is
closed for them. Go over to www.DC2011.org, and register for them, or other
parts of this feature-filled Conference! See you there!
