Salt Lake City update #lithuania

Litvaks@...
 

Here is an update on the conference in Salt Lake City, sent to the Litvak SIG by Sallyann Sack. Lets make a terrific LitvakSIG showing.

Davida Noyek Handler
President, LitvakSIG


Dear Colleagues,

A number of you have written in the past few days with the same
questions about next summer's conference in Salt Lake City. Rather than
answer individually, I'll post the replies here.

I spent two days last week in Salt Lake and my experience reminded me of
the opening sentence of Steinbeck's Travels With Charley. It goes
something like "I knew that I was out of the East when the waitress in
the truckstop diner in Erie. Pennsylvania, said 'good morning' to me."
(!) The friendliness and obvious desire to be helpful both at the hotel
and at the Family History Library was truly striking. Everyone made me
feel that they are delighted that we are coming.

The conference hotel, the DoubleTree (which has just been acquired by
Hilton and may have a new name by July), is a little more than two
blocks straight down South West Temple >from the Family History Library.
)I'm told that it is perfectly safe for women to walk alone there at any
time and it looks it.) The hotel is very nice and soon to get even
nicer. It has a swimming pool with sun deck and (free) exercise room and
sauna. You pay for massage. Especially interesting to those who keep
kosher: all of the rooms are scheduled to have refrigerators by next
summer; if they don't, one will be brought in free of charge. Plenty of
places to eat are nearby. The meeting rooms are almost all on the
mezzanine in close proximity to one another. A few more that we will use
some of the time are on the lobby level just down an easy flight of
stairs.

For those who don't want the exercise, there will be free hotel shuttle
buses to the library--and don't make the same mistake I did. Don't take
a cab >from the airport; the hotel sends the buses there too-free.

Those who have never been to the library are in for a treat. Gary
Mokotoff describes it in the current (in the mail) issue of AVOTAYNU and
we'll post the article on the conference website as well. The computer
at the library has the most current of all the five versions of the
catalog, and by summer will have full keyword searching.

As you may know, the library staff does not like to publicize filming
that is in process; they prefer to wait until the films have arrived in
Salt Lake City and are listed in the catalog. Expect to see some major
new Jewish acquisitions >from the former Soviet Union, including
individual 1897 census listings and Jewish vital records. We will
provide details as soon as they are in the catalog and we have been
given the 'green light' to report them.

In the past few years, the library has made a concerted effort to hire
staff with skills in Polish and Russian. I was told also that people
with the ability to translate Hungarian will be brought in our week as
well.

If you have additional questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Names: Chanedvarika or Chana D'volka #general

Toby Brief
 

Two family members have referred to an ancestor as either "Chanedvarika"
or "Chana D'volka". This woman would have been born around 1890 in the
Volyn region. I have checked the JG archives, but found no reference to
either name.

Would this name be a diminutive or a nickname for Chana? (There were many
Chana's and Henia's in the family at that time)
