Pamela Weisberger Memorial Fund #austria-czech

A new Pamela Weisberger Memorial Fund, as a joint program between the
Jewish Genealogy Society of Los Angeles and Gesher Galicia, has been
set up, as authorized by Pamela's family. Contributions will be used
to support lectures, films, and other options given in memory of
Pamela, for as long as the funds endure. We hope to present the first
program at the upcoming IAJGS annual conference in Seattle in August
2016, with a special speaker on Jewish genealogy to be determined by a
committee of Gesher Galicia and JGSLA members. Both organizations are
qualified 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organizations.

A dedicated Pamela Weisberger Memorial Fund bank account has been set
up. Credit card and PayPal donations may be made through the Gesher
Galicia website at www.geshergalicia.org/donate. Please enter the
Donation Amount and put Pamela Weisberger Memorial Fund in the
Center Note box. You will receive an acknowledgement >from PayPal and

Pamela, for her French followers... #galicia

Bernard Flam
 

from Paris,
On behalf of French "Galitzianer genealogy detectives," I wish to send
our condolences to Pamela's family on this sad day of celebration.

I don't know the wife or the mother she was, I am sure she was as
great as she was for us!

We had been lucky to welcome her last October in Paris for a
conference on "non-conventionnal" archives to look for when we are
stopped by a brick wall:
Galician & Polish Research: Unique & Unusual Resources

We were a small group of motivated and skilled searchers (>from
Cercle de Genealogie Juive) but she was 1st, far ahead of us.

With her cadastral maps, her landowner registers and all her other
"tricks in her bag," she opened paths we will follow for years.

On this forum, posts after posts, she took also time to coach or help
many of us. We are grateful to Pamela for all our recovered "Losts."

Concerning Gesher Galicia web site, one of her great achievement,
almost each page will keep memory of Pamela as a legacy to future
searchers.

I confirm she will be missed by all of us in the Jewish genealogical
community worldwide.

1897 additions to Latvia database #lithuania

I am delighted that we have some new names for you to research.

2041 names have been added to the Jewishgen 1897 Latvia Database. As before
the names of children are not included and further research can be done on
the Raduraksti site or by contacting the Latvian Archives. I would
appreciate it if there is no further discussion about the content of the
database as we have discussed this at length in the past.

The database is one of the most valuable of the databases as it contains a
lot of information. The place of birth and the place of origin is of great
value in your research.

The Russian Empire distinguished between the place of birth, which was where
they were born, and "Place of Origin", which represented the place with
which the family was legally associated and first registered. This was the
address >from which they received military callup. For approximately 35-40%
of the individuals represented in the database, the "Place of Birth" and
"Place of Origin" are different.

36th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy, locally hosted
by the Jewish Genealogical Society of Washington State. The conference
will be held at the Sheraton Seattle Hotel in Seattle, Washington from
August 7 to 12, 2016.

We seek proposals relevant to the interests of all genealogists
researching Jewish ancestors. In addition to proposals for lectures,
proposals for workshops or panel discussions are also welcome. New
presentations are encouraged, as are presentations and workshops that
provide practical research methodologies that will help conference
participants in their research. Highly original topics that will attract
participants will also be given special consideration.

The major focus of the Conference will be on Jewish migration, with a
general theme of "Westward Ho." General topics for presentations will
include European Jewry, migrations to the United States, migration of
American Jewry across America, and Jews in the Western United States. A
special geographic focus will be programming based on our branches in
Australia, South America, and South Africa.

Other focus areas are technology in support of genealogical research and
ethical considerations in genealogy. A special focus at this Conference
will be the Sephardic experience in America, in all of its varied aspects.

Presentations and panel discussions will be 75 minutes, which includes
15 minutes reserved for questions and answers. There is also an option,
this year, for shorter presentations of 45 or 60 minutes, including 15
minutes for questions and answers.

All proposals must be submitted using the Conference website
(www.iajgs2016.org), under the Program tab. In addition to basic
demographic and biographic information about the speaker(s), proposals
must include the presentation title, a brief description of the
presentation and target audience level,

Submitters of proposals will be notified by email no later than February
15, 2016 as to whether or not their proposal has been accepted. You may

1848 Census of Jews in Hernadszentandras #hungary

sbittker@...
 

Records of the 1848 Census for Abauj-Torna are not available on Jewisghgen, but are available through the Hungarian National Archives and the Archives in Kosice, Slovakia. I would like to share copies of images of the records >from this Census for the village of Hernadszentandras (Szent Andras) in this county for those who are interested. Surnames of Jews living in the village at the time were: Cisserman, Fischer, Frumer, Gotfried, Hips, Josef, Los, Medve, Rozenberg, Samuel, Stern, Swarcz, Vasserman, and Veis.

Images of the Census will be available at the links below for 6 days:

These records were obtained thanks to Beth Long who highlighted the existence of microfilms of the 1848 Census for Abauj-Torna County in the Hungarian National Archives through an email to the Hungary SIG sometime ago, and thanks to professional genealogist Andras Koltai who not only located the specific records in the microfilms in the Hungarian Archives but also went the extra mile by obtaining copies of a missing page >from the Kosice Archives which he determined had the originals.

Moderator: We appreciate your sharing of this info and hope that you would be willing
to provide images to JewishGen so the records can be indexed and added to the 1848
Census Records in the Hungary Database.
