Sephardic SIG #Sephardim IAJGS 2010 Conference Update for December #sephardic

JGSLA2010 Info
 

Plans for the 2010 IAJGS Conference in Los Angeles are moving at a
fast clip. Hope you've marked your calendars for this exceptional
30th anniversary celebration, taking place at the JW Marriott at L.A.
Live in downtown Los Angeles >from July 11 - 16, 2010.

The Call for Papers opened in November 15th and will close on January
15th. If you've been thinking about submitting a lecture or workshop
proposal or film for our consideration, there is still time to craft
your topic and send it in. Go to http://www.jgsla2010.com and click on
the "Call for Papers." Speakers will be notified by mid-February, and
the program should be online by the early spring.

Registration will open on January 15th, and will also be accessible
through our website, although you can make hotel reservations now if
you like. Just follow the links on the home page.

This year, on the first day of the conference, Sunday afternoon, July
11th, we will hold a "Market Square Fair," where SIGs and BOFs can
display their wares and attendees can get one-on-one research help
from these regional experts. There will also be booths with other
genealogically-related non profits and educational groups along with
craft guilds, historical map information, book signings and more.
Their will be beginners' workshops on Sunday and the vendor/exhibit
room and resource room with LDS films, and databases >from the Shoah
Foundation and the USHMM, will also be open on the 11th, so you should
plan to be in town by Sunday afternoon.

If you are thinking about arriving early, there will be
Shabbat-friendly pre-conference learning at the Marriott on Saturday,
July 10th and a Chabad house within walking distance of the hotel for
services.

This year we'll also be offering two evening theatrical presentations,
or "literary cabarets," including a production of "The Bialy Eaters:
The Story of a Bread and a Lost World," an adaptation of Mimi
Sheraton's moving book, which is a tribute to the endurance and power
of memory and how the search for a perfect "chewy crusty roll" echoes
a deeper longing for vanished way of life.

Special Interest Groups (SIG) and Birds-of-a-Feather leaders should be
hearing >from our SIG/BOF coordinator, Vivian Kahn, shortly with
information on how SIGs can co-sponsor an professor, archivist, or
established expert to speak in July with the conference's support.
She will also contact established BOFs to see if they plan to hold a
meeting this year. There are several exciting options for both SIGs
and BOFs which Vivian will explain to you in the information sheet and
application form she's sending out. (Because email contact
information is always changing, if she hasn't reached you by next
week, feel free to write to her at: SIGS_BOFS@... with your
questions or requests.) New BOFs are springing up all the time, and if
you want your group to be included at this year's conference you need
to let us know!

In January we will have a PowerPoint CD filled with conference news,
previews and film clips which will be available to any JGS or Jewish
community group who requests one. This presentation will also come
with one beautiful LA2010 tee shirt to give away as a door prize.
Watch for information on this soon. (In the meantime, tee shirts are
available for order on our website.)

If you want to be up on all the late-breaking conference news, make
sure to subscribe to our newsletter at:

http://www.jgsla2010.com/about/sign-up-for-the-announcements-newsletter/

I join with my co-chairs, Sandy Malek and Lois Ogilby Rosen in sending
happy and joyous Hanukkah and New Year's wishes >from the Jewish
Genealogical Society of Los Angeles, and the entire conference
committee, to Jewish genealogists everywhere. We hope to see you in
July in sunny, palm-tree-swaying Los Angeles!

Gyula who married Manci they had a son Ferenc who servived the II world war
and lived later in Budapest.
Miksa , born on 2.2.1895 died in W.W.I.

one of them had strong comunist covictions.

30th anniversary celebration, taking place at the JW Marriott at L.A.
Live in downtown Los Angeles >from July 11 - 16, 2010.

The Call for Papers opened in November 15th and will close on January
15th. If you've been thinking about submitting a lecture or workshop
proposal or film for our consideration, there is still time to craft
your topic and send it in. Go to http://www.jgsla2010.com and click on
the "Call for Papers." Speakers will be notified by mid-February, and
the program should be online by the early spring.

Registration will open on January 15th, and will also be accessible
through our website, although you can make hotel reservations now if
you like. Just follow the links on the home page.

This year, on the first day of the conference, Sunday afternoon, July
11th, we will hold a "Market Square Fair," where SIGs and BOFs can
display their wares and attendees can get one-on-one research help
from these regional experts. There will also be booths with other
genealogically-related non profits and educational groups along with
craft guilds, historical map information, book signings and more.
Their will be beginners' workshops on Sunday and the vendor/exhibit
room and resource room with LDS films, and databases >from the Shoah
Foundation and the USHMM, will also be open on the 11th, so you should
plan to be in town by Sunday afternoon.

If you are thinking about arriving early, there will be
Shabbat-friendly pre-conference learning at the Marriott on Saturday,
July 10th and a Chabad house within walking distance of the hotel for
services.

This year we'll also be offering two evening theatrical presentations,
or "literary cabarets," including a production of "The Bialy Eaters:
The Story of a Bread and a Lost World," an adaptation of Mimi
Sheraton's moving book, which is a tribute to the endurance and power
of memory and how the search for a perfect "chewy crusty roll" echoes
a deeper longing for vanished way of life.

Special Interest Groups (SIG) and Birds-of-a-Feather leaders should be
hearing >from our SIG/BOF coordinator, Vivian Kahn, shortly with
information on how SIGs can co-sponsor an professor, archivist, or
established expert to speak in July with the conference's support.
She will also contact established BOFs to see if they plan to hold a
meeting this year. There are several exciting options for both SIGs
and BOFs which Vivian will explain to you in the information sheet and
application form she's sending out. (Because email contact
information is always changing, if she hasn't reached you by next
week, feel free to write to her at: SIGS_BOFS@... with your
questions or requests.) New BOFs are springing up all the time, and if
you want your group to be included at this year's conference you need
to let us know!

In January we will have a PowerPoint CD filled with conference news,
previews and film clips which will be available to any JGS or Jewish
community group who requests one. This presentation will also come
with one beautiful LA2010 tee shirt to give away as a door prize.
Watch for information on this soon. (In the meantime, tee shirts are
available for order on our website.)

I join with my co-chairs, Sandy Malek and Lois Ogilby Rosen in sending
happy and joyous Hanukkah and New Year's wishes >from the Jewish
Genealogical Society of Los Angeles, and the entire conference
committee, to Jewish genealogists everywhere. We hope to see you in
July in sunny, palm-tree-swaying Los Angeles!

Can You Identify? Using flickr #hungary

Alex Magocsi
 

I have 4 photographs that were part of a treasure of photos that my
Grandparents, Anna (Hani) and Stephen MAGOCSI, saved >from the time they lived in
the New York City Area (1920s and 1930s).

I am hoping that someone in the H-SIG world might see something that will tweak
a memory or trigger an "Aha" moment and help me identify the bridal couple and
her(?) parents.

I have uploaded the 4 photos into my flickr account and hope that this method of
reaching you all is acceptable to the H-SIG moderators.

The photos can be seen at the following URL address:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/awmjr_magoo/sets/72157622862629677/

This URL address will link you to the set titled Unidentified
If you have not used flickr before, in this case, click on the word DETAIL to
step into the set, then click on a photo to see a larger version of it.

If you can assist, please respond to me directly at: awmjr@...

Thank you.

Jeruchem, also spelt Yeruchem, Jerucham, Yerucham, is a Yiddish
