Finding information beyond burial record #general

Anonymous <gabi.rule@...>
 

Hello,

I suspect that this person:
http://data.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.dll?jg~jgsearch~model2~[jowbr]J_VITEBSK_2_RECNUM1961
(MODERATOR: http://tinyurl.com/h5gfa7d ) is my great grandfather's sister.
My target is finding any documentation regarding my great grandfather.
The question is, how can I find more information about his suspected
sister? And can I reach him through his sister somehow? Any
suggestions would be helpful for me!

They escaped >from Lithuania prior to 1940.

Regards,

Gavriel Yadgarov (Israel)

Israel Consul General to attend film screening at IAJGS conference #unitedkingdom

bounce-3177138-785714@...
 

There are so many exciting things happening at this summer's conference.
We are thrilled to announce that Israel's consul general Ravit Baer
will present the August 11 screening of the acclaimed Israeli movie "The
Dove Flyer." Ms. Baer, a career diplomat in the Israeli foreign
service, served in Europe and Africa before becoming Israel's Consul
General to the Pacific Northwest.

"The Dove Flyer" will be shown as part of a Jewish film festival
that has been curated for the conference by leading Jewish film scholar
and teacher of cinema Dr. Eric Goldman. The film is based on Eli Amir's
blockbuster novel of the same name, brings to life the fragile, doomed
world of the Baghdad Jewish community in 1950.

It is one of many films in the festival of 33 motion pictures that
celebrate Sephardic Jewry, a major track of this summer's conference.
Other highlights of the Seattle conference include the opening night
keynote address by Dr. Devin Naar and the banquet address by Judy
Russell, a Certified Genealogist and Certified Genealogical Lecturer.

In addition, as at previous conferences, key lectures and presentations
will be made available through LIVE! a real-time video streaming service
after up to 90 days after the conference. It's not too late to register
for the conference or to purchase LIVE! Visit the conference website,
www.iajgs2016.org , for more information about all aspects of the
conference.

We're looking forward to seeing so many of you in Seattle August 7-12.

In our previous message, we incorrectly identified Deputy Consul General
Ravit Baer as Consul General. As previously announced, Ms. Baer, a
career diplomat in the Israeli foreign service, served
in Europe and Africa before becoming Israel's Deputy Consul General to
the Pacific Northwest. We are honored to have her present the August 11
screening of the acclaimed Israeli movie "The Dove
Flyer," and apologize for incorrectly identifying her.

Old letters and photographs play an important role in the latest issue
of JewishGen's Success! Stories. These stories take us to Argentina,
Germany, Austria, Poland, and the Netherlands. You can access these
stories >from the "About Us" button on our website or by following this
link: http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen/Testimonials/

Suzanne Reisman finds two old photos of an unknown baby after her
grandmother passes away. Silvia Rodriguez translates letters >from the
late 1930s for her friend Leda Altura -- letters written in German,
containing desperate pleas for help in emigrating >from Vienna to
Argentina. Peter Vanlaw inherits old letters and photos >from his
mother, giving him the urge to find out more about his Rehfisch
family, and to identify all the nameless faces that appeared in those
photos.

This issue was prepared by JewishGen volunteers -- Nancy Siegel, Editor
and Anna Blanchard, Webmaster. Anna has volunteered her time and
talents as the Success! Stories Webmaster for the past four years. She
has created beautiful layouts of the inspiring stories you send us.
