Last few days to take advantage of early registration for the IAJGS conference in Seattle #general

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

The Co-Chairs of the 36th Annual IAJGS Conference wish all of you a
happy Passover. Whether you are spending the seders with family or
friends who are just like family, reminiscing about seders of the past
will probably be heard around your seder table.

But, what do you do with those stories, and how do you get them stored
or filed? How do you fit the disconnected pieces of your tree together?
And speaking of which, what about all those brick walls?

Now is the time to take advantage of early pricing to attend the
conference that can help you with all those issues and more. The annual
IAJGS conference is the largest annual genealogy conference that focuses
on uniquely Jewish research and brick walls while at the same time
helping attendees to learn and master best practices of genealogical
research, recording and reporting.

This year, we offer 230+ conference sessions, evening entertainment, a
film festival, and more, all in beautiful Seattle. Join us 7-12 August
2016. If you can't join us, consider registering for our LIVE! streaming
of over 50 sessions, and the audio recordings of almost all our sessions.

Please take this opportunity to visit our website
(http://www.iajgs2016.org/ )and register before April 30 at 11:59 PM
Pacific Daylight Time, when the early pricing disappears! You'll still
be able to register after that, but the price goes up!

Looking forward to seeing you in Seattle

Re: New Belarus Website #belarus

Max Preston
 

Thanks to everyone who worked on the new website!

I wanted to point out some links that might be helpful to add to the
website related to Vitebsk:

(1) Some Vitebsk area duma lists were posted online a couple months
ago: https://vitebskareadumalists.shutterfly.com/

(2) A Jewish magazine in Belarus (I think) compiled a list of people
from Vitebsk killed in WWII:
http://mishpoha.org/martirolog/martirolog.pdf.

Also, I don't see anyone listed on the website who is heading up a
Vitebsk district research group. Is there no such group?

Thanks!

JRI-Poland adds more Warszawa Vital Records Data #general

hadassahlipsius
 

In commemoration of the start of the Warszawa Ghetto Uprising on the Eve of
Passover, April 19, 1943, Jewish Records Indexing-Poland has added
nearly 5,600 more Warszawa vital records to the JRI-Poland database.

Updates were made to the following projects:

1) Additional extracts for the Warszawa LDS Jewish data covering the
1826-1865 time period (Fond 180). This dataset now consists of over
70,000 records. We have begun to add image links to this file and the first
film that was linked is LDS microfilm 069531

2) Additional extracts for the Warszawa Jewish records >from Fond 200
covering the 1864-1915 time period. This group of files contains over
83,000 records of which 83% are now image linked.

Our researchers are working on the data extracts and filling in the gaps on what
has not been done. Each successive year another year becomes available for
indexing. Though many of the records were destroyed or disappeared during the
decimation of the city during World War II, we still have many more records to
extract.

Happy Passover.

Bialystok Jewish Cemetery has been Indexed #poland

Mark Halpern
 

The Foundation for Documentation of Jewish Cemeteries in Poland has
announced an update to the database of Polish Jewish cemetery
inscriptions. which includes GPS data and transcriptions of personal
data extracted directly >from the tombstones.

This update includes an almost complete index of the cemetery in
Bialystok (2400 inscriptions). 500 more inscriptions for Bialystok will
be added to the database in Summer 2016.

As you can see >from the data, there are fewer than 3,000 legible
tombstones in the one remaining Jewish Cemetery in Bialystok. This
represents about 6 to 8% of the number of people buried in the Cemetery
from about 1890 through about 1965.
Already included in this database are inscriptions for the Bialystok
area towns of Bielsk Podlaski, Bransk, Choroszcz, Ciechanowiec,
Drohiczyn, Goniadz, Jalowka, Jasionowka, Knyszyn, Krynki, Michalowo,
Narew, Narewka, Sidra, Siemiatycze, Tykocin, Wasilkow, and Zabludow.

Through collaboration with JRI-Poland, this data will be easily
available to all researchers, historians and descendants of Polish Jews.
See
http://www.jri-poland.org/foundation-for-documentation-jewish-cemeteries.htm.

Witold Wrzosinski, Remigiusz Sosnowski and Alicja Mroczkowska are the
principals of the Foundation for Documentation of Jewish Cemeteries. The
Foundation was awarded the IAJGS Stern Grant in 2015. For direct access
