Still time to register for the IAJGS conference Aug 7-12 #unitedkingdom

bounce-3175241-785714@...
 

The annual IAJGS conference has become more of than just your run of the
mill conference. There are no longer merely lectures and workshops.
There are:
- Up to seven concurrent lectures and workshops during each time period
- A track on "Genealogy for Jewish Educators"
- Computer Workshops
- Special Interest Group Luncheons
- Gala Banquet
- Vendor exhibits
- The play, >from Door to Door, by the Seattle Jewish Theater Company.
- Film Festival
- Pre- and post-conference cruises
- Tours during the conference

Events stretch >from 7:30am to at least 10:00pm. There is a morning
minyan (religious service) at 7:10. It is truly an international
conference because there will be attendees >from more than 20 countries.
In addition, it is becoming more common for lecturers to be >from outside
the U.S.

Finally, if you cannot attend, but wish you could, there is LIVE!! This
allows the subscriber to watch some of the best programs on his/her
computer, tablet, or smartphone. LIVE! is, as the name suggests, live
streaming, but it is also available to subscribers for 90 days after the
end of the conference, "on-demand".

If you cannot make this year's conference, plan to attend the one next
year which will be in Orlando, Florida, July 23 - 28, 2017. It can
include pre- or post-conference visits to Disneyworld, which is just a
few miles away.

The conference website is at http://www.iajgs2016.org. Registration is
being accepted on-line until July 24. After July 24, if you'd like to
attend, you can register at the door.

See you in Seattle!

Yizkor Book Project, June 2016 #unitedkingdom

bounce-3174440-785714@...
 

Shalom,

So what can I tell you about the Yizkor Book Project in June? For a start,
there were quite a few new books and entries added over the past month,
which is always great to see. The past month saw, as usual, updates to many
of our existing projects and many of these are getting that much closer to
completion. Hopefully, I'll be able inform you about finalized projects in
the very near future.

Last month I let you know about the necrology database, which is ably led by
Max Heffler, and I am pleased to inform you that around 5,000 new entries
were added to this database over June. This particular database is an
important research tool for finding information about families and
individuals killed in the Holocaust. Yet another piece of the puzzle to help
us learn about our past. For more information, please see:

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/

In my last report I noted the YBMNI (Yizkor Book Main Names Index) and this
too, continues to plough ahead and more entries will be added soon. We are
still in need of volunteers to help us move this project along and if you
would like to help out, have some free time and are proficient with Excel,
I'd like to hear >from you.

Apart >from volunteering, another important way of supporting the work we do,
is by donating to any of our Translation Funds. We have set up these funds
to facilitate the translation of the Yizkor Books by professional
translators and your donation will certainly help to make this happen and
for those of you who are US citizens, donations to the funds are tax exempt.
Please see the link at the end of this report for the JewishGen-erosity page
with details of the various funds.

And now for all the changes and additions that were carried out in the

If not, would someone be willing to take a photo of a gravestone for me?

The annual IAJGS conference has become more of than just your run of the
mill conference. There are no longer merely lectures and workshops.
There are:
- Up to seven concurrent lectures and workshops during each time period
- A track on "Genealogy for Jewish Educators"
- Computer Workshops
- Special Interest Group Luncheons
- Gala Banquet
- Vendor exhibits
- The play, >from Door to Door, by the Seattle Jewish Theater Company.
- Film Festival
- Pre- and post-conference cruises
- Tours during the conference

Events stretch >from 7:30am to at least 10:00pm. There is a morning
minyan (religious service) at 7:10. It is truly an international
conference because there will be attendees >from more than 20 countries.
In addition, it is becoming more common for lecturers to be >from outside
the U.S.

Finally, if you cannot attend, but wish you could, there is LIVE!! This
allows the subscriber to watch some of the best programs on his/her
computer, tablet, or smartphone. LIVE! is, as the name suggests, live
streaming, but it is also available to subscribers for 90 days after the
end of the conference, "on-demand".

If you cannot make this year's conference, plan to attend the one next
year which will be in Orlando, Florida, July 23 - 28, 2017. It can
include pre- or post-conference visits to Disneyworld, which is just a
few miles away.

The conference website is at http://www.iajgs2016.org. Registration is
being accepted on-line until July 24. After July 24, if you'd like to
attend, you can register at the door.

See you in Seattle!

How to find records for female relatives #ukraine

Lucy Hooberman <lucyhooberman@...>
 

Dear fellow JewishGen Ukraine SIG members

I am trying to find some information on behalf of my 94 year old
father whose birthday it is next week.

His father , Barnett Hooberman, came with two brothers (Harris/Harry
and Israel) to the UK
from Bershad in Podolia. They show up in the UK in the 1901 and 1911
census. They were born in 1882, 1880 and 1870. The three brothers
settled in London and then had a falling out and the three lines of the
family have barely spoken to each other though I am now trying to find
everyone.

There was talk of a flour mill on the River Bug and I have found an
entry for a Guberman who had the flour mill and another Guberman , a
tailor.

In the naturalisation documents their father is names as Beril and
their mother as Chaya.

My father says when the brothers came to the UK they left behind their
mother and their sister. Their Dad had died ( I don't know how) and
this may have prompted the boys to go and seek their fortunes
elsewhere. However this leaving behind of the female family members
(the sister's name is not known) has left a trail of guilt and no
doubt has shaped much of the family to come.

I did take some advice and employed a researcher to look in various
archives in the Ukraine. She came up with some names I am happy to
share if possible but there is no way of knowing if any of them are
relatives as there are so many gaps in the years.

Does anyone know if there is a way to find marriage records or birth
records that include girls and women or any other records?

We feel sure that these two women would have come to a very sad end
but we have no idea if they married again and left the region or
stayed there and inevitably perished in the second world war

There is also a book I have found called Bershad by Nahmen Huberman
which only exists in Hebrew. I would love to see a translation of
this book or know if would contain any information about life in
Bershad. Is it a coincidence that our names are the same?

If anyone has any ideas for me I would be incredibly grateful
With thanks
Lucy

Question about Talner Chassidism #general

Lynn Arroyo
 

Dear Fellow Genners,

I am a woman, but trying to help a young gentleman with the following question.
Is there someone who can tell me how the Chassidic men in the Talne (Talnoye)
region of Kiev, might have wrapped their Tefillin? Would they have wrapped in
the Sephardic or Ashkenazi manner, or would it have been some other way?

Thank you,
