Quoting JRI-Poland digest <jri-pl@...>:

I would like to invite all readers of JRI-Poland to take a free virtual tour
of the First World War, Vienna Jewish War Memorial. I do not think it has
been photographed and displayed systematically before. It is a genealogical
treasure house, especially for Galicians who are sadly very well-represented
on the plaques. There must be about 1,300 names in all. Why these names have
been chosen, out of what must have been 1000s of Jewish casualties, is a bit
of a mystery. I have not been able to get a sensible answer. I suspect they
are young men and officers who were brought back to hospital in Vienna, where
they died.

Jewish cuisine from Sanok and the area #galicia

Arek :) <arek40@...>
 

I would like to write an article about Jewish cuisine >from Sanok
and the area. I know that there exist many web sites with
Galician-Jewish cuisine and/or recipies. But I am interested
especially in this smaller region. There - eastern Galicia - the
Ukrainian-Jewish-Polish influences were mixed in many areas. I
know that for example there were Jewish knishes, which are
Ukrainian meal. Maybe you can help me and show where to find
something.

The best solution of course will be, if some of you can remember
your mother's recipes - home specialities. It would be wonderful.
As we know part of the cuisine was common for Jews >from other
countries - for meals connected with religious occasions - but
plain repasts were under the influences of regional and local
traditions and this is my aim, to find them.

Please answer to my private e-mail address.

Re: Vital tagging of online photosites and visualisation of large family trees. #general

Erika Herzog <erika_herzog@...>
 

I am very interested in this process of tagging (both online and offline)
photos and making available photographs of interest to fellow jewish
genealogist and extended family members online.

Because it sounds like Celia, you are at the beginning of your process of
uploading these photos to flickr, and I am somewhat in the first eighth (or
less?!?) of my scanning and posting and archiving process, I would like to hear
thoughts of others on this process. And most importantly --- ask for
methodology help >from others on jewishgen who have more experience with this
issue of putting photos online.

I use flickr (http://www.flickr.com/photos/erika_herzog/sets/), am on a MacBook
Pro, use the flickr uploader tool to bulk upload which allows me to tag and
create sets (though i have not been very disciplined about tagging). While this
is a for fee service to bulk upload, I find the cost reasonable, have no vested
interest in the service, etc. I also like many options to blog, print, and
archive photos (as long as I keep up my membership). Google also pulls data
quickly >from anything I upload, which is helpful when others are searching for
uncommon surnames.

However, I have issues of organization that relate to Celia's comments.
Currently I put photos in folders organized by film roll or slide batch, in
rough date order.

Recently, a smart fellow classmate in the Beginning Jewish Genealogy class
mentioned he was using metatags in a separate program for his genealogical
photos. Right now I have approximately 4,500 photos uploaded and it is becoming
very unweildy to not use a metatagging program. Has anyone used Aperture or
some similar program/methodology?

I agree with Celia that tagging is critical to make these photo databases as
helpful to those searching as possible. I'm concerned with methodology as I
continue my photo project. Would like to improve methodology so I don't have to
go back and fix everything manually. Tagging easily is the biggest problem, as
well as organizing them off and on the internet.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts on this,

Erika

Dear Cousins,

I'm researching my wife's LIEBMAN family of Germany & America. I have
an Edna MARCUS born 1916 in NYC marrying Frederic ROYSTON in England
in 1938. In a NYTimes announcement, it says that Frederic graduated
from Cambridge University. If anyone knows this family, please
contact me privately. I'd like to get in touch with them or their
descendants. I don't know where in England they live.

Best, Steve Orlen Tucson Arizona

Chernowitz or Vishnitz, Romania #general

Shari Kantrow
 

Dear Genners,
I am helping a friend get started on her
genealogy and I am having a difficult time finding
information on her father and his family. He was from
either Chernowitz or Vishnitz, Romania before 1925.
His name was Irving Birnberg in the US and he was born
as Israel Itzhak KOHLER (his mom's name). His father
was BIRNBERG. I looked on the JRI-Poland site, but
could not find anything. I wasn't sure if either of
these two towns were in Romania years ago, or
currently. I also tried looking on the Jewishgen site,
but couldn't find anything specific to what we are
looking for.
Since this group has always been incredibly
knowledgeable and most helpful to me, I hope someone
can point us in the direction we need. Thanks in
advance.
