Re: Why is saying thank you often overlooked? #general

sharon yampell
 

When someone asks for help on Jewishgen, and I take the time to
reply, surely it isn't asking too much to get a brief thank you.

I could not agree with you more. I can't imagine not wanting to
thank a person who has helped me.

I agree with both of you too!

I always make it a point to send a thank you email to those who have
offered me help even if it never pans out to anything and when it does,
I am even more appreciative. Saying thank you doesn't cost the recipient
much; it costs the person who helped you their time and effort to help
you, so why not send an email or e-card just to say thank you whether
what they had to say helped you or not!

While on the topic of saying thank you, I want to thank each and every
one of you because although I may not thank you all individually, for
all of the tips and websites for research I now use, as well as finding
people that are researching last names that are also on my family tree
and we are all trying to piece together possible family connections!

Something has been niggling away and I need to put it into words.

When someone asks for help on Jewishgen, (especially if it relates to
Australia as this is where I live but it could be anywhere), and I take
the time to reply, surely it isn't asking too much to get a brief thank you.

LDS films of church records Horodenka area #galicia

Matt Friedman
 

Sorry for joining into the discussion a bit late...

About ten years ago I was in Salt Lake, and I looked the LDS
microfilms for churches in the Horodenka area. I did not find
anything that even hinted at Jewish records. I don't have my
notes here so I can not say definitively that there are no records
with Jews in any church, but I did look at quite a few films. Keep
in mind that Jews would be even more reluctant to supply info
to churches than to the civil authorities... for obvious reasons.

There are records for Horodenka available through JRI Poland.
This research was done several years ago. Good luck to all.

Based on the records I obtained >from the Polish archives, it
seems that in the little shtetlech in Galicia, every house had a
distinct number. Did the streets have names? Were there also
house numbers for every street? Can someone clarify this
subject?

I have posted a photo on Viewmate (#15530) of a Memorial which lists
the Holocaust Martyrs of the town of Gyula (Bekes megye), Hungary. Can
someone confirm the location of this memorial? In other words, is the

town/city?

The link to the viewmate page is:

I am asking because this photo is to be included in the Hungarian

Photo Consultation Services at the Conference

For the past 10 years, Maureen Taylor, ?The Photo Detective,? has
been providing in-depth analysis of historical photos, primarily for
people who are researching their family histories. Maureen estimates
that she?s studied over 10,000 photos in the past decade and The Wall
Street Journal recently called her ?the nation?s foremost historical
photo detective.? If you would like to have her analyze your own
family photographs, she will be offering 15 minute individual
consultations at her table in the vendor room. To sign up send Maureen
an email (mtaylor@taylorandstrong.com) and attach scans of the
picture(s) you?re interested in having her examine. She?ll fill you
in on the special conference attendee rate via email. You can also
stop by her booth to watch a consultation in progress if you like!
(Or watch her solve cases on www.vimeo.com/photodetective.)

Note that we will also have another photo consultant in the vendor
room as well -- Ava ?Sherlock? Cohn, the ?Photo Genealogist? who will
also be lecturing on Sunday on photo analysis with a focus on Jewish
photographic analysis.

Tour Date Correction:

permanent home built into a hillside in Pan Pacific Park. You will be
one of the first official visitors to this stunning cultural
institution, in which state-of-the-art exhibits depict the history of
the Holocaust. The Museum's mission of Holocaust education and
commemoration includes opportunities for in-depth research in many
areas, including Jewish genealogy and a buffet kosher dinner will
also be served before returning to the Marriott. The tour runs from
4:15PM ? 7:15PM. Pricing is on our website--and don't forget about
our other walking tours of Jewish/historic Los Angeles, and our Jewish

Happily the month of May saw a continued hubbub of activity in the

If you are able to assist financially to these particular books them or any
of those appearing at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
your donation would be very much appreciated.

Please remember that all this month's additions and updates have been
flagged at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html to make it
easy to find them.

Wishing you all the best,

During this last month we also added two new Translation Fund Projects:
Divenishok (Dieveniskes), Lithuania and Koidonov (Dzyarzhynsk, Belarus).
These were begun in order to engage professional translators who will help
facilitate dreams of seeing the whole translation of these books online.

If you are able to assist financially to these particular books them or any
of those appearing at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
your donation would be very much appreciated.

Please remember that all this month's additions and updates have been
flagged at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html to make it
easy to find them.

Wishing you all the best,
Lance Ackerfeld
Yizkor Book Project Manager


Hungarian Jewish Archives - Family Histor Library #hungary

I compared the list posted by the Hungarian Jewish Archives at
http://www.milev.hu/userfiles/file/anyakonyvek.pdf against the collection of
the Mormon Family History Library and it appears much of the collection has
been microfilmed by the Mormons.

In fact, strangely, there are records in the FHL collection not shown in the
Hungarian list. Specifically the FHL claims they have birth, marriage and
death records for Tapioszele and Sumeg; the archives claims they only have
marriage records.
