Hello,
This is certainly disappointing.

Let me answer please as a French women active on Gersig with half of my
ancestors being German and the other one Alsatian
1. First going to San Diego is very far >from France
2. I suppose that many of the French speaking people are not so good at
English and do not imagine going to a conference fully in English
3. it is true that I never saw an interesting message on this forum.
Because we use other routes probably such as the French Jewish genealogical
societies or because French genealogy is so much easier than in Germany
because all is digitalized ?

But perhaps you were targeting the American audience potentially interested
in their French roots (not so frequent I would say in my modest opinion)

Have a great day,
Joelle >from Paris

Dear Rosanne and Pierre,

First of all, thousand thanks for the dedicated work you two have put into
the French SIG for years and years!

I was thinking what could have contributed to the decline in the once so
active SIG. Knowing Pierre's age (like mine), one reason could be the
retirement of older hobby-genealogists and the lack of young people
joining our community.

Furthermore: I assume that many, perhaps most, French SIGgers are not
living in the USA and therefore not so able to attend IAJGS Conferences. I
remember the times, when more people were asking for help and were also
given advice. It would be a pity to let the French SIG die "due to natural
causes". Is this ageing process occurring also in other SIGs?
Unable to help, I can only hope you will find after all members able and
ready to take up responsibilities.

Abraham Blum, Israel

Dear FrenchSIG members,

The time is growing closer for any possible papers, thoughts for
meetings,=C2=A0 >from FrenchSIG members at this coming year's IAJGS Conferen=
ce
in San Diego CA.

We have close to 1000 members, and it is very discouraging to your
Coordinators to have no responses >from anyone on our list! How many of
you are considering attending?=C2=A0 Is there any reason for us to even
schedule a Meeting, Luncheon? We would love to have some of you
willing to step up to learn the ropes for taking over as Coordinators,
Moderators! We have not had a Webmaster in a few years, because no one
is volunteering.

If interest in French research is so low perhaps we should just let this
SIG die.=C2=A0 Is that what you would all like?

Please let us know your thoughts on these matters?=C2=A0 Is there anything
that you would like the SIG to do or participate in please let us know
ASAP! Pierre has been very busy adding new database material.

We are still hoping to hear >from some of you, so that we can make
Conference arrangements before it is too late!

San Diego #france

Myra Waddell
 

Cher Rosanne et Pierre,

So sorry that I didn't reply. I thought your request was just for
people submitting papers. Yes, I look forward to a meeting, possibly a
luncheon, etc. It's always nice to meet other researchers with
ancestors in France. Whilst I was in France earlier this year, I met a
distant cousin who I found through JewishGen when she submitted a query
and I recognized the names of people in whom she was interested. We
walked around a part of Paris, had a good chat and some delicious food. 
It was great to meet her.

I'm looking forward to being at the conference, although I'm not
offering to be a Coordinator or Moderator and certainly not a
Webmaster!!  Too old for any of that!!  I just like to be there.

All the best. See you in San Diego. 
Myra Waddell

Unfortunately we will be on a family vacation in Montreal during the beginning

Re: What is a "personal marriage certificate"? #galicia

A "personal marriage certificate" might refer to the ketubah, the Jewish
marriage contract that most Jewish couples sign at their weddings.

Charlie Katz Appointed Treasurer of Gesher Galicia #galicia

Steven Turner
 

Gesher Galicia Board of Directors welcomes Charlie Katz as our new
Treasurer. After 15 years of dedicated service, Ann Harris has stepped
down. We are grateful for her service as former treasurer and wish her
the very best in future endeavors.

Charlie is an information technology consultant with decades of
experience delivering data management solutions for a global financial
institution. Most recently, he was a Senior Vice President of Enterprise
Operations & Technology leading big data engineering and advanced
analytics initiatives. Charlie holds a BA degree in Liberal Arts >from The
New School in New York City.

Charlie has been researching his family history for over 20 years, a
journey spanning roots in Galicia, immigration to New York's Lower East
Side, and adaptation to life in America in the early 20th century. His
research reconnected family in the US and UK that had lost contact 60
years earlier.

Please join us in welcoming Charlie to the Board and wishing him
success in his new role.

Looking for cemetery in New York #usa

Hello,

I have recently found the death certificate for my GG-Grandmother who
passed away in 1900 in Brooklyn NY. The place of burial is
"Mount Sina Cemetery" I believe this to be Mount Sinai but am unable to
find this cemetery.
Does anyone know if this is the correct name or, has it merged with another
cemetery.

Please respond privately and thanks in advance for your help,

John Epstein, Jupiter FL USA johnebos@...

Re: Jewishgen Offer

Joan A. Baronberg
 

I agree with Linda F.—but how would you ever know to what I am “agreeing?”
Yes, this new format is off-putting and “cumbersome” and not as useful as in the past and also arrives too often.

Originally, it was told to us that they now have a maximum length of posting they can send out on any single message. Rather than continue with such a format, why not switch to something that better fits the needs of JGen readers? (so, for example, digest people get only one email per day as in previous years and also the original question/email is posted along with any current replies.
Also, why doesn’t the editor/moderator eliminate all the long, blank spaces in many emails posted?

"Judensicherung" translation please #germany

Hi,

I was helping someone translate a document relating to his grandmother
who was deported >from Frankfurt in 1942. In the document was a photo
of the cover of a file with the grandmother's name on it. The caption
mentioned that the file was connected to "Judensicherung". Does anyone
know what that means?

Thanks, Daniel Raye Beit Shemesh, Israel danraye@...
