Re: Warsaw Conference #france

Rosanne Leeson
 

Dear fellow FrenchSIGgers,

We have just received a questionnaire asking us if we wish to schedule a
SIG meeting and/or a Sig Luncheon for the Sig at the Warsaw Conference.

So far I have only received a couple of confirmed replies to the earlier
questionnaire, both >from members in France. Our present membership is
959!!!! Surely there must be others among you who are now planning on
attending the Warsaw Conference, perhaps even giving a paper?

There is a Dec. 24 deadline for us to request a Meeting or Luncheon. 
So, if you are planning on attending PLEASE let us know as soon as
possible, or the FrenchSIG will have no presence in Warsaw . This would
be very sad, as this is a first Eastern European location. And many
from Poland eventually relocated in France!

Searching OPPENHEIM, London #unitedkingdom

Dick Plotz
 

My great-grandfather Dr Joseph Isaac Bluestone (1860-1934), who
migrated >from Kalvarija, Lithuania to New York in 1880, was a delegate
to the 1903 Zionist Conference in Basel. He wrote in his memoirs that
on his way he visited his wife's cousins Max and Isaac OPPENHEIM,
probably brothers, in London. Isaac was married to Minnie, and Max was
a bookseller.

I've tried over the years to identify Max and Isaac in various
databases, but have had no luck. OPPENHEIM as a surname and Max and
Isaac as given names are too common to be sure that anyone with either
name is the right one, and as most Oppenheims are German Jews and not
Litvaks, the presumption is against any particular one being the right
one. Also, since I'm trying to determine if either brother had a
family, and if so, to find living descendants, a simple listing of a
name in a directory or membership list is not likely to be very
helpful.

Dr Bluestone's mother-in-law, my great-great-grandmother Feige Dvora,
was a daughter of Louis (probably Leib) Oppenheim of Vishtinetz (now
Vistytis). She had a brother David Shlomo in New York and brothers
Sholom and Tanchel as well. I don't know whether Max and Isaac were
sons of one of these or of another brother whose name I don't know.

I would appreciate any leads that might help me identify Max and Isaac
Oppenheim, especially if they lead to contacts with living
descendants.

FindMyPast Free Access to British and Irish Roots Collection #unitedkingdom

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Findmypast has created a "special" collection >from its existing records
called the British and Irish Collection. The intent is to make it easier to
search specifically for the immigrant ancestor rather than searching the
entire Findmypast database. The collection spans more than 400 years of
migration between the British Isles and North America, all in one place, and
holds 98 million records. Currently, access to the database is free. No end
date was given, but can change at any time.

When searching the data base, the results return with an icon of a "page".
This indicates it is a transcription of the actual record. When you open the
icon, there is an opportunity to view the original source document, however,
for most of the source documents, a paid subscription is necessary. An
example of a free source document would be the US Census.

I did a search of the surname "Cohen", no first name or other information
and received a return of 38,377 results. The results were from: Ireland,
England and Scotland and ranged >from the US Census to Passenger Lists
Leaving the UK (1890-1960), US Passenger Lists, US Marriages, Canadian
Border crossings and more. The country of origin was predominately listed
as England, and Ireland, but there were some >from Canada, Scotland and
Wales. In this example I did not find birth, and death records,
naturalization applications and draft registrations, but they are also
included in the collection's records. In full disclosure I did not view all
38,000 return results. If a record, such as a US military record, says the
soldier was born in Wales or Ireland or the UK, or in a US census record
someone in the family was born in England, Ireland, Scotland or Wales then
that record should be in the collection. Anyone leaving the UK or Ireland
emigrating to Canada, the US or the Caribbean, or any British or Irish
immigrant who stopped temporarily in Canada en route to the US or Caribbean
and anyone listed on any US or Canadian record with British or Irish
origins, birthplace or parents should be in the collection.

Hi Genners:

Looking for information regarding nationalization for Jews >from Poland to France in

If anyone can advise me about naturalization papers, etc, I'd greatly appreciate
