Re: dual citizenship #austria-czech

Ron Hoenig
 

I would like to make an ironic aside note. One of the disadvantages of the move
by the Austrian government is that: should an Australian descendant of Austrian
holocaust survivors take up the offer, that person would be prevented >from
becoming a member of Australia's parliament. Australian politics has been
devastated by a section of the Australian constitution that decrees that no
person with dual citizenship - or even eligibility for such citizenship - may
stand as a candidate for election to such a high office. The current Treasurer
of the country, the descendant of a Hungarian Jewish Refugees is currently
fighting to prove that he is not a dual citizen because of a similar move by
the current authoritarian - and some would say - antisemitic Hungarian
government to restore similar citizenship to the descendants of victims of
the Hungarian holocaust. DespIte the fact that an increasingly large proportion
of Australia's population either has or is eligible for citizenship in two or more
countries, the nation's highest court has ruled that the clause in the constitution
which was. Legislated in the early 20th century, when the nation was proudly and
avowedly racist, has firmly ruled that its leading politicians must divest themselves
of such dual citizenship at profound financial cost. As a result, a growing proportion
of the country's population is ruled out of contesting the nation's highest office.

Whatever one's views of the generosity of the Austrian Government in making this
offer, anyone of my readers should consider the fact that it would mean certain
death to a elevated political career in Australia!!!

One advantage of possessing Austrian citizenship is that you have free
access to the whole of the European Union without any restrictions which
may be placed on non-citizens such as perhaps needing a visa to settle
there or purchase land.
It may however also involve duties, including liability to military
service.

The reasons you cite are precisely why I obtained Czech citizenship 6 years ago.

Dear Sheldon,
Thank you for your message.
As we continue to modernize our platform, we are trying to ensure that everything meets contemporary security standards. We, therefore, needed to have a separate login for this platform. In the future, we plan hope to have one single sign-in page. For additional information, we have prepared a helpful Member Guide here: https://groups.jewishgen.org/g/main/wiki/The-New-JewishGen.org-Discussion-Group-Member-Guide
Wishing you the best of luck with your research, and thank you for being part of the JewishGen Family.

Re: Correction: Article on Dedication of the Memorial to the Yurburg, Lithuania Jewish Community #yizkorbooks

Randall Tenor
 

I wish more Lithuanian communities and the Lithuanian government would do this. I am fortunate that most of my family came over around 1900 and others were able to fight in the forest in WW II, though we lost some in the camps. Let's hope that Yuburg is not a one time event.

Thank you.

Any idea why this message came through in hieroglyphics?

If it was in Hebrew, I would transpose it using http://www.pixiesoft.com/flip/ - but that did not work.

Re: JewishGen.org Discussion Group - Digest #1

Avraham Groll
 

Dear Vicki,
Thank you for your message. I appreciate your honesty and being willing to share your opinions.
Our previous system was preventing us from creating/maintaining a platform that would unite as many people around the world as possible. (See my earlier messages that outlined some of the causes, such as the requirement for Plain-Text, the inability to display images, accented characters, other languages, etc). We felt this new platform would be a major upgrade, but I do recognize that it's not perfect, and I am sorry for any incovneience this might be causing you. We will continue to try and improve this platform to the greatest extent possible and will appreciate your feedback and suggestions. In the meantime, if we can be of any help to you in terms of more specific training, etc., please email support@... and we will do our best to assist. 
Thank you again.
Avraham


Re: JewishGen.org Discussion Group - Digest #1

Avraham Groll
 

Dear Barbara,

Thank you for your feedback. There are a few ways to include a reply in messages:

Replying via your email to an individual message (i.e. not a digest): It depends on the setting within your email client. When clicking "reply" if your email client automatically includes the previous message, it will do so within this Discussion Group as well. If it does not, you can adjust your settings, or copy+paste the message manually. If you need help, please email support@..., include which email client you use, and we will do our best to help.

Replying via your email to a message within a digest: 
Beneath the message you are interested in replying to, there are the following options:
  1. View/Reply Online: If you click on View/Reply Online that will allow you to use the online message editor, and there is an option to include all/some of the message in your reply (see below).
  2. Reply To Group: If you click Reply to Group, you will open a new email in your email client, and you would have to copy+paste the message in order to include it. Note: The nice part of this platform is that you can easily view the entire thread of a conversation/topic by clicking: View Topic > View All Messages in Topic.  
Replying via the Web Forum (groups.JewishGen.org): There are two ways to do this:
  1. Using the online message editor, you can quote the entire message by clicking the far-left icon on the menu bar in the editor ("Quote Whole Post"). See the arrows in the screen-shot below.
  2. You can highlight a portion of the message before you hit the Reply button, and that section of the message will be quoted.
I hope this was helpful. Thank you again. We will strive to continuously improve this new platform, making it as user-friendly as possible, and we greatly appreciate your feedback.

Thank you, Jon. We will review how to do this better, per your suggestions.
With regards to Hebrew characters - this new platform can now accept accented characters, along with multiple languages, etc. It was never a policy to NOT accept this in the past. We were simply limited by the technology.
Thank you very much for your feedback, suggestions and continued support of JewishGen's important work.

Abraham,

 

The hashtag has the potential to be useful but needs to be visually presented better. The white in small letters on a light green background (#Sephardic #Galicia) makes it almost invisible to the eye. Larger letters and a black background would work (#Sephardic #Galicia).

Kardonsky #usa

YaleZuss@...
 

In the wake of the "Roots" genealogy craze, my grandfather told me his mother, Batya Kardonsky, had at least nine siblings.  My family has been in touch with the descendants of four them since leaving Ukraine, vicinity of Starykostyantinyv/Starokonstantinov, a century ago.  I am writing to see whether this message board can help me connect with the other five trunks:
 
I believe I recently identified the descendants of a fifth sibling, Pearl, who married Bernard Blumberg and went to Philadelphia.

Number 6, Uncle Morris, also went to Philadelphia, a seventh, Shima, went to Argentina, Uncle Reuben came to America, and Grandpa had no information at all on number nine, Mochta, which may mean Mordechai.  Grandpa thought  it possible that there were others.
 
Although I believe they are from (at least?) two wives (Pearl is about 30 years younger than my great-grandmother) their common father was David.
 
If there is anyone out there who is part of this clan, please contact me directly.

Re: Question

Why am I getting multiple messages per day rather than just one when I requested digest form?  And why do I need a separate login from my Jewishgen researcher number login?
I also would like a translate button if people post in multiple languages.  I tried to copy and paste the Hebrew, but could not get all the Hebrew selected without having the header selected also.
