Call for Papers - 34th IAJGS Conference, Salt Lake City, 7/27-8/1/2014 #france

Hal Bookbinder
 

Greetings,

The 34th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy will take
place in Salt Lake City >from July 27 through August 1, 2014, If you
would like to learn more about the conference, submit a presentation
or computer workshop proposal, sign up for the conference blog or
discussion forum, or make hotel reservations at our special conference
rate, please visit the conference website, www.iajgs2014.org.

While the program committee will consider all submissions, we have
identified some focus areas in which we are especially interested.
These include Genealogy and Jewish History related to World War I,
Jews of the Western United States, Technology in support of
genealogical research, Immigration and migration over the ages and
Ethical considerations in genealogy.

The conference will kick off one day shy of the 100th anniversary of
the start of World War I (Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia on
July 28, 1914, one month after the assassination in Sarajevo of
Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria). Many of us have ancestors who
served in the armies of the various nations engaged in this conflict.
The War and subsequent fighting for control of Eastern Europe
devastated much of Europe including the Jewish heartland in the Pale.
It stimulated a wave of Jewish migration and resulted in the Balfour
declaration, calling for "the establishment in Palestine of a national
home for the Jewish people". If you would like to submit a speaking
proposal related to the "War to End all Wars" please do so.

Whether you wish to be a speaker or not, we invite you to submit
family stories and pictures >from this era for sharing. You will be
able to do so once conference registration opens in one month. So,
start gathering your stories and pictures now.

Hope you have been having a terrific Thanksgiving and Chanukah. We
look forward to seeing you in Salt Lake City this summer for a world
class genealogical learning experience.

I am looking for a family named ROSENBERG (a very common name
unfortunately) who lived in Warsaw around 1900.
in 1899 my great grandfather Menachem Moshe Meir ROSENBERG was born to
Yaakov Chanoch/ Heinach and Channa ROSENBERG in Warsaw, and he lived there
until he married in approx. 1917, his parents lived there longer, however i
don't know how long- presumably until they died.
Menachem Moshe Meir married in MOLAWA, Poland. Both his parents had died by
1922.
What records could i find about this family? is it possible to search the
burial records? what about street directories? census records?

Evelyn Frybort (efrybort@...) responded with another question:

Could MOLAWA, Poland actually be Mlawa?

Absolutely! My gg-gf lived in Mlawa and emigrated to New York in 1920. His
immigration manifest listed his town of origin as Molawa.

Reconciliation/Reparation project: site cite #germany

jberlowitz331@...
 

Dear SIGgers,
Searching for the Czech town of Bezdruzhice [phonetic approximation]
(Germ. Weseritz), Bohemia, for a project for Geni.com, I found this
site and thought it in keeping with a recent thread on the GerSIG
about a school project around Stolpersteine. The site contains
detailed narratives about the town I'm profiling and probably for the
many other locations as well. The "summer camp" is for volunteers
aged 40 and above.

https://www.asf-ev.de/en/summer-camps/get-involved/summer-camps-40.html

No need to stress the importance and humanitarian as well as
genealogical value of this project!

What can the acronym CHET-RESH in place of BET-RESH in a name mean? #germany

Justin Levy <jlevy2008@...>
 

Hello,

Several of the names in an early 19th century tax list (Schutz- und
Silbergeldliste) for the community of Landsberg an der Warthe (now
Gorzow Wielkopolsk) have the Hebrew acronym chet-resh in place of
bet-resh (i.e. son of Mr.), for example, Yosef chet-resh Abraham,
instead of Yosef bet-resh Abraham.

Would anyone perhaps be able to explain the meaning of this acronym?

Regards,

Justin Levy Dublin, Ireland (jlevy2008@gmail)
