The B&F Forms System has been updated #galicia

Philip Trauring
 

I wanted to let people know that the genealogy forms system I
developed, the B&F Forms System, has been updated based on
user suggestions. All of the forms (except the index form) have
been updated, including the addition of a nicknames/alias field for
people in the forms and other improvements. These forms are
great for those new to genealogy, as well as for sending to
relatives who don't know a lot about genealogy to collect
information >from them in an organized fashion. All forms are
printable (on both Letter-size and A4 paper) and fill-able on the
computer.

In addition, I have added a new research-oriented form called the
US Immigrant Census Form. This form helps you to collect
information >from the US Federal Censuses between 1880 and 1930,
with a focus on the information that will help you further your
research into an immigrant's past.

For example, in 1900 and 1910, the census listed how many
children were born to a woman, and how many were still living.
You can use this information to figure out if children may have
been left behind in the old country, or may have died young. While
the country of origin of each person and their parents is listed in
all the censuses on the form, the language spoken by each parent
is collected only in 1920. This can sometimes be more useful than
the country of origin which is frequently vague. >from 1900 on the
naturalization status of each person is listed in the census, but in
1920 the actual year the person was naturalized is recorded.
These bits of information are all very useful for researchers who
are looking to use census records as a springboard to getting more
information on immigrants to the US.

The forms are available on the Forms page of my blog:

http://www.bloodandfrogs.com/p/forms.html

I hope people find them useful.

IAJGS Conference Gala: Fun, Festive and Affordable #germany

31st IAJGS Conference <dc2011_conference@...>
 

The “value-filled” Gala event, one of the major highlights of the 31st
IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy, is being held on
Thursday night, August 18, in the beautiful Grand Hyatt Ballroom. This
event, formerly known as “The Conference Banquet,” has been transformed
into one with a lower-key yet greater networking potential. Bowing to
comments, we’ve also scaled down the cost to a more realistic $65 per
person. This should make the event more affordable, and likely that more
Conference attendees and their spouses or companions (registered or not
for the full Conference) to attend.

What will attending the Gala get you? An attractively printed Gala
Journal will list the evening’s quality agenda, which thus far includes
these high points:

- Excellent-tasting kosher food, delicious hors d’oeuvres, and more
substantial, scrumptious fare at a variety of buffet stations, and cash bars

- A casual atmosphere that will allow you to meet, mix, mingle, and above all,
to network and share your fabulous genealogical finds during the week

- Plenty of seating for chatting and relaxing: so much seating, in fact,
that you’ll be able to easily change seats >from food course to food
course, and mingle that much more readily! (We’ve done away with
predetermined, reserved seating, so that mingling-- an important goal of
attending IAJGS conferences-- would be more possible.)

- The pleasure of honoring and applauding our outstanding IAJGS
Achievement Awardees of the year, being given awards for major and
lifetime Jewish genealogical achievements

- And for your listening pleasure: the world-renowned Robyn Helzner Trio
will captivate us with their charming wit and evocative melodies sung in
Hebrew, Yiddish, Ladino, Russian and English >from Jewish communities in
five corners of the world. [Read more about them at their website:
http://www.helzner.com/trio.php]

- And as if all of these highlights weren’t enough, it’s possible that a
special, high-level guest might attend (arrangements are still pending,
we’ll let you know).

However, remember--- You can’t attend this wonderful, value-filled event
until you register for it AND the Conference. Early Bird discount prices
only run until April 30th, and will increase after that date, so
register NOW at www.dc2011.org <http://www.dc2011.org/>! (The Gala fee
for attending will remain at $65 per person.)

HEUBERBER ? from Krakow #poland

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

My late mother Sarah Rebecca ROSNER nee KOENIGSBUCH (1920-1999)was born in
Krakow. She was gifted with a very good memory and in 1985 my cousin Bob
KINGSBOOK sat with her and drew in her presence the family tree of all
her 4 aunts all of whom,including her mother, perished in the Holocaust.

She listed their names,the names of their spouses and their children.
The married names of all the sisters >from FLANK family are: Sima
KOENIGSBUCH(our grandmother),Estera HOCHBERG,Chaja Sarah NOWOTNY,Anna
LANDESDORFER and Paulina HEUBERBER (HEUBERBER).

Paulina was born in 1908 and her husband was Cheskiel HEUBEBER. The FLANK
family originated >from Brzesko/Slotwina but I gather that the daughters
lived after marriage in Krakow and its environs.

I have trouble locating the HEUBERBER surname in Galicia. I tried
HEUBERBERG and variants.Yad Vashem lists only 1 HUBERBERG.

I tried the Pages of Testimony advanced search for a male "Cheskiel"
born in Krakow around 1905 (+/-5 years) and surprisingly it gave me
Chaskel GOLDSCHNEIDER who perished in Auschwitz in 1942 and who was
married to Paulina( I did not enter her name in my query). I found
another PoT on him by another relative filed in 2003 in Zurich which
contains less details. But I think that moving >from HEUBERBER to
GOLDSCHNEIDER might be too much.

Any suggestions and guesses will be more than welcome.

My late mother Sarah Rebecca ROSNER nee KOENIGSBUCH (1920-1999)was born in
Krakow. She was gifted with a very good memory and in 1985 my cousin Bob
KINGSBOOK sat with her and drew in her presence the family tree of all
her 4 aunts all of whom,including her mother, perished in the Holocaust.

She listed their names,the names of their spouses and their children.
