I hope to find more information concerning the contacts between the Belgian

Maybe there is also information about the contacts between Belgian Jewish

organisations (Hagana who organized this trip, HICEM, Mossad l'Aliyah bet,
Joint, Dutch Jewish committees). I already found some documents in a limited
extent in the State Archives in Brussels (only 5 pages).

The only thing I can say is that the Belgian government offered assistance
for this trip, but denied their share towards British emmissaries.

I do not really know who took the leading in this undertaking in Belgium, but
I think Max GOTTSCHALK had a role in this boat trip organisation. Also the
TORCZYNER and KUBOWITSKY families were involved in one way or another.

I'm also searching for databases and information about the places where the
passengers on my ship did the Hachshara. I already saw on the site that there
is a database for training farms in Germany.

I Also found out that some people did their Hachshara in Villers-la-Ville
(Belgium). Because a lot of the passengers on the Dora came to Belgium from
Austria and Poland I'm searching for lists of the hachshara in Poland and
Austria. I think the majority of the passengers did somewhere the hachshara,
but there is big gap in my resources.

I write to you in the hope of finding more information about this ship or to
know where I can find useful database.

I would kindly wish to request more information (all possible data) about

Re: Budapest (Jewish?) Deaf School #hungary

Jenny Schwartzberg
 

Dear Diane,

My guess was that there were school yearbooks, as I know there were for a number of American and European schools for the deaf. I checked the online English and Hungarian dictionaries and deaf is siket and deaf-mute is siketnema.

If you search WorldCat at this public version:
http://www.worldcat.org/advancedsearch

and use those keywords and limit the years to 1855-1899, you get 1 journal and five books in Hungarian. I don't know Hungarian so I can't tell you if those would help. You could also extend the years of your search, or just wade through the books with siketnema in the title and look for something that appears to cover a historical period.

I hope this helps!

Also, there is a Facebook page for a school for the deaf in Budapest that goes back to 1902. Perhaps they may have some information about earlier schools: https://www.facebook.com/Hall%C3%A1ss%C3%A9r%C3%BCltek-Tanint%C3%A9zete-School-for-the-Deaf-150224568375528/info/?entry_point=page_nav_about_item&tab=overview

10:30 a.m.-11:45 a.m. in the Grand Ballroom.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What's New in JRI-Poland with Stanley Diamond

Since its 1995 founding, there have been two phases of activity
for Jewish Records Indexing - Poland, starting with creating
indices of records microfilmed by the LDS and then indexing
of later years of records in Polish Archives not filmed by the LDS.
Phase 3 - introduced one year ago - was made possible by the
following changes in Polish archival policies and privacy laws.

1) availability of digital record images records - facilitating full
extraction of vital records, and the linking of search results to digital
images; 2) Polish privacy law allowing access to marriage and death
records up to 1935 in Civil Records Offices (USCs). The session will
reveal the results of the first year of Phase 3, and will introduce
forthcoming major additions to JRI-Poland and show how the
"Your Town" pages will be modified to include a much broader range
of record sources.


11:45 a.m.-1:15 p.m. in Willow AB
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
JRI-Poland Luncheon: Jewish Family in Poland in 19th Century. Debunking
Myths with Tomas Jankowski.

What made a Jewish family Jewish? Was it multigenerational and patriarchal?
Could studying Torah help in arranging a good marriage? How "typical" was
your own family?

This talk will help you to place your own family's history in a broader
context of social and economic changes in Poland over the last two hundred
years. Special attention will be paid to distinguishing the common
characteristics of the Jewish family in the past.

(This luncheon will be 100 percent kosher, and will cost $44, as a result
of an anonymous donation to help underwrite the cost of the kosher
luncheon. If you are registered for the Conference and have not already
registered for the luncheon, the deadline to do so is July 10.)

Researching Your Galitzianer Family: Working with Vital Records with
Mark Halpern

A great many Galician researchers have acquired family records from
repositories in Poland and Ukraine. Images of many of these records can
now be found online. Over the last fifteen years, the work of Jewish
Records Indexing - Poland and Gesher Galicia has made these records
more readily available to all Galician researchers. This session,
sponsored by JRI-Poland, offers an in-depth examination of vital records
along with a strategic framework to help researchers in acquiring
Galician records to further their research.

We will provide a historical perspective covering the regulations that
governed Jewish record keeping and how regulations covering civil
marriages impacted the legitimacy and surnames of children. Close
examination of sample birth, marriage, and death records will reveal
the information contained in the records, identify the records having
the most genealogical value, and discover surprises found in many of
these records.

Researching Your Galitzianer Family: Working with Vital Records with
Mark Halpern

A great many Galician researchers have acquired family records from
repositories in Poland and Ukraine. Images of many of these records can
now be found online. Over the last fifteen years, the work of Jewish
Records Indexing - Poland and Gesher Galicia has made these records
more readily available to all Galician researchers. This session,
sponsored by JRI-Poland, offers an in-depth examination of vital records
along with a strategic framework to help researchers in acquiring
Galician records to further their research.

We will provide a historical perspective covering the regulations that
governed Jewish record keeping and how regulations covering civil
marriages impacted the legitimacy and surnames of children. Close
examination of sample birth, marriage, and death records will reveal
the information contained in the records, identify the records having
the most genealogical value, and discover surprises found in many of
these records.

What's New in JRI-Poland with Stanley Diamond

Since its 1995 founding, there have been two phases of activity
for Jewish Records Indexing - Poland, starting with creating
indices of records microfilmed by the LDS and then indexing
of later years of records in Polish Archives not filmed by the LDS.
Phase 3 - introduced one year ago - was made possible by the
following changes in Polish archival policies and privacy laws.

1) availability of digital record images records - facilitating full
extraction of vital records, and the linking of search results to digital
images; 2) Polish privacy law allowing access to marriage and death
records up to 1935 in Civil Records Offices (USCs). The session will
reveal the results of the first year of Phase 3, and will introduce
forthcoming major additions to JRI-Poland and show how the
"Your Town" pages will be modified to include a much broader range
of record sources.

JRI-Poland Luncheon: Jewish Family in Poland in 19th Century. Debunking
Myths with Tomas Jankowski.

What made a Jewish family Jewish? Was it multigenerational and patriarchal?
Could studying Torah help in arranging a good marriage? How "typical" was
your own family?

This talk will help you to place your own family's history in a broader
context of social and economic changes in Poland over the last two hundred
years. Special attention will be paid to distinguishing the common
characteristics of the Jewish family in the past.

(This luncheon will be 100 percent kosher, and will cost $44, as a result
of an anonymous donation to help underwrite the cost of the kosher
luncheon. If you are registered for the Conference and have not already
registered for the luncheon, the deadline to do so is July 10.)

The goal of the session will be to familiarize the researcher with the
JRI-Poland search screens and help understand the search results. The
workshop will explore narrowing techniques for managing large results and
provide hints for effectively using the two stage results screen.

Experience using the Internet is recommended, but no experience with the
JRI-Poland database is necessary.
