Wanted: Useful Data to Find a New Home #yiddish

Jonina Duker <jonina.duker@...>
 

As you read in our earlier message, we have some data that really should
be on a searchable web site database rather than posted as a one-time
message on our list. Once we find a volunteer webmaster to set up our
site, then we have the opportunity to put other useful information on
that site as well.

We're seeking membership recommendations for material to present
(for example, photographs of tombstones in YT sections of cemeteries,
other name indexes, bibliographies, you name it, ...).

Please post your recommendations to the YT&V list for the benefit of all.

It's time! We need a webmaster. #yiddish

Jonina Duker <jonina.duker@...>
 

The Yiddish Theater and Vaudeville Research Group is presently without a
web page. New data has been prepared directing members to source material
with pictures of more than 500 Yiddish Theater actors, composers,
playwrights and businessmen. As with other data bases containing hundreds
of names, it is most effective when using search techniques such as
Daitch - Mokotoff soundex code.

In addition, new informative tables are being generated. One such table
is a collection of material naming the New York Yiddish Theaters, Plays,
Authors and Actors covering the period of 1887 through 1894. As an
example, it tells that the Roumanian Opera House on March 14-21, 1887 held
performances of Goldfaden's Bar Kochba, music by Mogulesko and
Finkelstein. This can best be examined by maneuvering though a web site.
There are other exciting efforts waiting on the horizon.

To get this accomplished, we need a volunteer webmaster. JewishGen
provides us with the space; however we do need someone to manage that
space.

If you've been longing to give web site management a try, this is a the
perfect way to get your feet wet. Please contact:

Jonina Duker, founder and facilitator at <jonina.duker@juno.com>
or David Harris, moderator at <dharris1@erols.com>

Thank you.

Re: Snoalk - what town is this and where would I find it? #general

Julie Shapero-Rogerson asked about "Snoalk", Poland - a place of birth
obtained >from the 1901 -Census for England and Wales.

If Julie has access to the handwritten "Snoalk" and for lack of additional
information, I would suggest trying to see if it could be a misread
"Suvalk", for present Suwalki in NE Poland, close to the Lithuanian border.

Monday, March 24th , 7:30 pm
Gelber Conference Center, 5151 Cote St. Catherine Rd.

"WRITING YOUR FAMILY HISTORY . . . as easy or as challenging as
you want to make it!"

There are many ways of presenting your family history: it can be as simple

writing a book for submission to a publisher . . . or anything in between!
It’s all about evaluating your own talents and knowing the audience you are
addressing. This lecture will be a starting point for those contemplating
what to do with the precious research material about their ancestors.

Lorraine Gosselin is a former information systems director. She returned
to
University upon her retirement and graduated >from Concordia with a BA
Honours in English and Creative Writing and a minor in Quebec history. She
is an amateur genealogist and writes the Internet column for Connections,
the Quebec Family History Society’s journal. The seminars she has given
include use of the Internet for writers, for genealogists, and workshops
at the QFHS on Writing Your Family History.

Question period will follow the lecture.
Please join us for a most interesting topic and speaker.

Next Scholar-in-Residence Workshop:
