New Feature: Index of all names on Rav-SIG site #rabbinic

Seflaum@...
 

Dear Rav-SIG Members,

We are always looking for ways to make your search for rabbinical
connections a bit easier. Therefore, a new feature has been added to
the Rav-SIG web site: a Site Index of names found throughout the web
site.

The new Site Index contains more than 1,850 names found in the
static pages of the web site. The Site Search facility may be used
to locate pages containing these names.

The Site Index does not include names found on the following pages,
which should be searched separately:
- Board and Committee Members
- Bibliography: Names of Authors
- Links
- Rabbinical Surnames
- Famous Rabbis

A link to the Site Index, as well as the Site Map, may now be found
at the bottom of every page in the web site.

Sincerely,
Shirley Rotbein Flaum
Rav-SIG Coordinator

Dear Jewishgenners:
I am reading a valuable genealogy book:
Ethnic Chicago-A Multi-Cultural Portrait of Chicago
edited by Melvin G. Holli and Peter d'A. Jones
William B. Eerdmans Publishing Company
Grand Rapids, MI
1977, 2nd edition in 1995.
It mentions the Jewish Free School and the name of many other
institutions,charts, maps, etc., while painting a vivid portrait of life in
Chicago >from 1840 to 1990's. I find it to be a solid, sensitive resource.

Help with name translation #general

Marcy <Buffysmomplus3@...>
 

My grandfather Jerome SILBERMAN was born in NYC in 1910. He is 2nd to the
youngest of seven siblings. I recieved his father's death cert >from 1927
which listed his father's name as Jerome. I thought that my grandfather must
have been named for his grandfather. My grandfather's hebrew name is
Zacharya but the given names database lists the US translation for Zacharya
as Ben,Issachar,Barnett, and Sam. The name Jerome brings up in the database
the hebrew name Yirmiyahu with the US name being Jeremy.My great grandfather
Isaac came to NYC >from somewhere in Russia in the 1880's.I don't know if his
father came or not yet. Is my first mistake thinking that my grandfather was
named for his grandfather?
Thank you

No one knows as much as Debbie-and although the
ref. to Jewish travellers is small, she gives
exactly the info we need. I have no benefit
from recommending this as a one-time
suggestion.

Re: Organization of genealogical materials #general

Diane Jacobs <kingart@...>
 

Hi,
I have organized my date this way.
I keep all documents relating to one family line in a looseleaf folder
in archival sleeves and I mark that doucment with a color dot where
the individual (s) are listed on the page to see it quickly.

I keep ALL the information >from documents for each person under
their name and data in MS Word and separate sheets by individuals
so when new information comes forth, I can just put it in Word and
then print out a new sheet for each person. So by glancing on a
person listed on my tree, I can scan down and see every address,
every years, every relationship on records that I ahve for that person.

Hope this helps.

I would very much appreciate hearing people's suggestions as to how to
physically organize genealogical information and documents. I would like
them organized in such a way that, when visiting a family member, I could
take a folder or more with me - with material that is relevant to that
person. Therefore, I do not want to organize the paperwork by keeping,
e.g., all census records on everyone in the same folder, even though I
have a computer program that suggests organizing papers in that way.

I am sure that no one meant to insult the person who made the
inquiry. Often letters on gravestones are eroded or otherwise
distorted and the person involved doesn't always consider all the
possibilities.

I have certainly fallen into that trap myself and have been grateful
for those who pointed out what was only obvious afterwards.

University, will discuss genes and genealogy at this meeting. He will
discuss two aspects of genetics and how they can affect you and your search
for your roots.

Join us on May 29th for an enlightening session about genes and how they
affect your everyday life. Discover what DNA testing can and cannot do to
help track your ancestors and confirm relationships

Admission is free. We welcome all members and non-members to join us for a
