Hello
I'm looking for a 1937 birth certificate >from a woman >from a town
called TRANVENET (TRANVEMET? ) or something similar, she was close to
a town called DOMRAVENT (DOMRAVEMT?) or something similar. Both are in
Tergo-Morah district in Transylvania.

I look for these two towns to find their birth registration books, but
I can not find any of them.

FINALY origins #hungary

G. C. Kalman
 

Dear Siggers,

One of my ancestors was Loebl (Levi) FINALY (also known as "Bass(ist)"
or "Musicant"), who lived in the late 18th century, Obuda (now part of
Budapest, Hungary), and was a leader of a keyzmer band there. Some
sources claim that he (or his family) arrived >from Italy, but there is
no reliable evidence for that. Does anybody have any further information
about the origin of the family?

Thank you,

The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum's Survivors and Victims Database
has a new collection:

Registration and Work Cards for Jews >from Lviv Ghetto (Lwow Ghetto)
(ID: 45681)

According to the USHMM website, this collection "contains alphabetically
ordered work cards of ghetto inhabitants in Lviv... who went to places of
work in the city each day. Data includes name, date of birth, ghetto
residence, occupation, and workplace address." These records -- almost
18,000 cards -- were left behind by the Germans as they retreated. They
have been held by the Central State Historical Archives of Ukraine in Lviv.

The collection can be searched at
https://www.ushmm.org/online/hsv/source_view.php?SourceId=3D45681

If you locate a name of interest, you can submit a "Media Request" form
and you will quickly receive by email a digitized copy of the original
document.

Thank you to Peter Lande for sharing news of this collection on the

History of Betar in Poland/Belarus #belarus

Celia Haupt
 

Hello all

I am interested in finding out more about the history of Betar in
Poland - specifically in the region of Drohiczyn. My grandmother's
autograph book contains some interesting inscriptions that lead me to
believe that she was involved in Betar in Poland in the early 1930's.

I would like to find out if there are any records remaining >from Betar
groups in the areas around Pinsk, Motol, Pruzany, Linov and various
other places. These were in Poland between the two wars, but are now
in Belarus. Ideally, I would love to track down membership list or
dates and locations of youth camps organised in the areas mentioned
that could possibly tie in with the dates of the inscriptions in the
autograph book.

The autograph book entries that have prompted this investigation can
be found on Viewmate at
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM60540 and
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM60859.

Re: Rabbinic ordination in Lithuania #rabbinic

Ittai Hershman
 

Historically, "semicha" -- the conferring of the title Rabbi -- was not
generally done through formal schooling, as became the norm in 20th
century America. In fact, the whole notion of yeshivas, or rabbinical
schools, as a training ground for rabbis is modern and Western
(specifically, Germany and then America). Even today, one can become an
Orthodox Rabbi through a private process of study and testing. See, for
instance, the Wikipedia entry for Zalman Nechemia Goldberg.

Tangentially, on the famous Lithuanian Yeshivas of the Nineteenth
Century, see the seminal work of Shaul Stampfer.

Triangulation #dna

Arlene Beare
 

I did a workshop on Double match Triangulation at the Orlando Conference. I
find it is very useful in helping me sort out possible matches and also from
which side they match. The programme only costs 40 US dollars for a
lifetime use and can be found at
http://www.doublematchtriangulator.com

The following address is also useful for learning about Triangulation-
https://segmentology.org/how-to-triangulate/

It is possible to triangulate using Tier 1 tools on Gedmatch but GEDmatch
only gives you some of the triangulations with some of your matches. DMT
gives you *all* of your triangulations with one specific person.

Louis Kessler who created the DMT software is very helpful and reading the
help notes on the site gives one a good idea of how to use the programme.
