IAJGS Call for Papers

The International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS)
announces an invitation to submit lecture, workshop, and panel proposals
(see formats below) for the 35th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish
Genealogy, in cooperation with MyHeritage, to be held in Jerusalem, at the
Ramada Hotel, 6-10 July 2015.
As in recent years, while the conference will have a specific theme, we
seek proposals relevant to the interests of all genealogists researching
Jewish ancestors. If you have a proposal that does not specifically fit
one of the listed categories please feel free to submit that proposal as
well.

As the conference will take place a few weeks before celebrating the 70th
anniversary of the end of World War II, we plan to focus on the impact of
the War on the Jewish people and their lives across the world;
WWII-related topics include, for example:
* Jewish life in Europe and beyond
* Jewish soldiers in the military
* Resources for military documentation
* The Holocaust
* Emigration and Immigration
* Unique archival repositories

Other unique focus areas include, but are not limited to:
* Resources for researching in Israel (including in pre-State Israel aka
Palestine)
* Technology, tools and techniques
* Academic studies which might assist the Jewish genealogy community
* Jewish genealogy for the younger generation

In addition, we welcome proposals for such Jewish genealogy topics as:
* Resources for researching Sephardic genealogy
* Researching Rabbinic lineages
* Jewish genealogy for beginners
* Country and region-specific research
* Onomastics

Proposal formats:
* Lectures - 45 minutes, including time for questions;
* Workshops - 105 minutes each in the computer lab. Workshops will be
opened upon a minimum number of registrants.
* Panel discussions - 105 minutes. The panel, focusing on a high-level,
broad subject, will include up to five speakers on a given topic, will be
led by a chairperson and will be summarized by a facilitator (all
participants should be named in the proposal). A typical panel will
include time for each speaker, a few minutes for the facilitator, and 20
minutes for an open discussion.

Any one prospective speaker may submit up to five proposals in either
English or Hebrew. A maximum of three proposals per speaker will be
accepted. Individual speakers with at least one accepted proposal receive
a partial registration fee waiver.

All proposals must be submitted using the Conference website
(www.iajgs2015.org); e-mail submittals will NOT be accepted.

Proposals must include the following information (required via the
submission form):
* Full name, mailing address, email address, and telephone number of
presenter(s)(If a panel proposal, details for each panelist are required)
* Brief biographical sketch - (up to 50 words)
* Summary of recent presentation experience (up to 150 words)
* Title of presentation (up to 15 words)
* Presentation type (lecture, workshop, or panel)
* Brief description of the presentation (up to 150 words)
* Audience skill level (beginner, intermediate, advanced or all)
* Preferred language of delivery (English, Hebrew, French)

Submissions Deadline is 7 December 2014, no later than 11:59 EST.
Notification of acceptance will be sent out by 15 February 2015.
Supplemental material for handouts will be requested following acceptance.

Jews of the Lorraine region [BOOK CITE] #germany

Michael Rubin
 

MODERATOR NOTE: I entered only the ISBN number in the Google search
box and immediately found dozens of web pages with more information
about this book. See below.======>

I wanted to alert GerSiggers to the availability of a new resource related
to the Jews of Metz, capital of the Lorraine region and at times part of
France and Germany.

The two volume set entitled "Protocols of Justice: The Pinkas of the Metz
Rabbinic Court, 1771-1789" (ISBN- 13: 9789004265158) is the official register
of civil cases that came before the Metz rabbinic court ("beit din," in
Hebrew) in the two decades prior to the French Revolution. [details below]

It includes material on the functioning of the Jewish community, including
its finances, philanthropic services, family life, residential regulations,
details of commercial transactions, inheritance disputes, etc.

There is much that will be of immediate interest to genealogists.
Men and women who approached the Metz Beit Din were mainly >from the
city of Metz and the villages of the Moselle region. A small number
were residents of Alsatian communities, Paris, and even outside of
France -- Bohemia, England, Germany, Italy, and Poland. Rabbis in
Metz were often immigrants >from central and eastern Europe, including
the famed head of the rabbinic court, Rabbi Aryeh Leib Ginzberg.

There are about 2,000 individual names listed in the book's Hebrew index.

Where in New York did my relative go? #poland

Apollo Israel <apollo@...>
 

Hello everyone,

I recently found a document that indicates that a previously unknown
rother of my great-great-grandmother went >from Poland to New York via
Antwerp early last century. The document, which comes >from the so-called
"Belgian police files" (indexed in one of the large commercial sites),
is in French and dated 1908, and states that his foreign address
("foreign" being outside Belgium) was "93 Pietstreet, New York,
America." It does not give the name of anyone he might have been going
to at that address.

The handwriting on the document is very clear and I am sure I read the
street name correctly. So, I tried Googling "Piet Street" New York, but
that
turned nothing up. I did find a Pitt Street in Manhattan and looked at it
via Street View, but do not know if that is the right street. There don't
seem to be any signs of Jewish life in the area now, and, in fact, there
is now a Catholic church and school right where no. 93 would have been.

Thanks to Steve Morse's excellent ED finding tool, however, I managed
to find the Pitt Street pages in the 1940 U.S. census, and realized that
it must once have been a very Jewish area, as there were many Jewish names
there then. However, there were no names similar to my relative's or his
wife's at no. 93 or elsewhere in the street.

I also searched JewishGen's and JRI-Poland's various databases very
thoroughly (including JOWBR and Family Finder and every other possible
JewishGen database) but found nothing. Similarly, I searched the U.S.
immigration, naturalization and census records online (in the big
commercial sites), and various grave-finding websites, but also found
nothing. I also tried Facebook and U.S. directories to find people with
that surname, but couldn't find anything likely. I did get some hits
for people with similar names, but other details (widely differing
dates of birth, for example) eliminated them.

So, at present, the only lead I have to this relative is this doubtful
street name ("Pietstreet," which may or may not be Pitt Street, Manhattan)
from the Belgian document. I'm stumped. I would welcome any suggestions on
how to proceed!

For those interested, the document names my relative as Sender KRYSKA,
rn inn 1873 in Sieradz (son of Juda KRYSKA and Reisel GABELSKI) ,
husband of Fanie GENKOWSKY (born in 1882 in "Belgartow, Russia").
It was not clear >from the document whether Sender was in Antwerp on
his own or whether his wife was with him.

Thanks in advance,
Miriam BULWAR DAVID-HAY,
Raanana, Israel.
