Latest News About IAJGS Annual Conference: Film Festival #usa

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

We are thrilled to announce that Jewish film authority Eric Goldman is
organizing the film festival for the 36th IAJGS International Conference
on Jewish Genealogy to be held at the Seattle Sheraton Hotel >from August
7-12. Goldman is putting together an array of 25 Jewish-themed films
that will be one of the high points of this summer's conference. Goldman
stated it would "offer an amazing look at world Jewry and the various
migrations that have impacted our people through the centuries. There
will be a special focus on immigration to the United States." He is a
noted Jewish film scholar and teacher of cinema at Yeshiva University.

Other highlights of the 2016 conference include the opening night
keynote address by Dr. Devin Naar, chair of the University of Washington
Sephardic Studies Program, and the banquet address by "legal
genealogist" Judy Russell, a Certified Genealogist and Certified
Genealogical Lecturer. There are also planned Alaskan cruises before and
after the conference.

The conference's Early Registration period, which runs until April 30,
offers the lowest fees, with savings of $55 for the full conference. The
conference website, http://www.iajgs2016.org, has complete details on
how to register for all levels of the conference. Once registered, you
can make reservations at the Sheraton Hotel at a reduced rate.

Since we know that there is no way to attend every single session at the
conference, we've made it easy to catch what you may miss - audio files
with slides and Live! are the answer. Live! is a real-time video
streaming service. If you subscribe to Live! you will have access to the
archives on-demand for 90 days after the conference is over! Both can be
subscribed to during the registration process.

If you can't join us in person in Seattle, you can still subscribe to
Seattle 2016 Live! and you can also purchase the audio and slides. Early
registrants to Live! will receive a $70 discount off the August price.

Sign up for the discussion group >from the "about" tab on the conference
website, and the blog >from the link on the right hand side of the page.

Records for Kassel prior to 1874 SCHWARZSCHILD #germany

Melody Schloss
 

I am trying to trace the family of my husband's great grandmother Johanne
SCHWARZSCHILD who was born in Kassel 15 Sep 1872, married Moritz SEEMANN,
and perished in the Theresienstadt ghetto.

I have searched available records online for Kassel for 1872 and
earlier, but have been unsuccessful. I have a USAncestry subscription
and also searched the microfilms available >from LDS Family History
Libraries but found none filmed. I also tried the Hessen archives but
it appears there is nothing for Kassel prior to 1874.

I would appreciate any direction for locating Kassel records for
this time period, preferably online, as I live in the US and cannot
research in Germany myself. Regards,

Melody Schloss, Santa Barbara CA USA melschlos@aol.com

For Gleiwitz (and Immediate Surrounding Areas) Researchers: Newspaper Oberschlesischer Wanderer (back) online SITE CITE #germany

Irene Peters <iupfamilyresearch@...>
 

A few years ago the Staatsbibliothek in Berlin removed all of their
digitized issues of the newspaper "Der Oberschlesische Wanderer"
arguing that the paper had become a Nazi propaganda tool after 1933.

A couple days ago I found that they are back online (up to 1936). The URL is:
http://zefys.staatsbibliothek-berlin.de/list/title/zdb/28029094

The paper is also held at the Silesian Digital Library at the following URL:
http://www.sbc.org.pl/dlibra/publication?id=82748&from=&dirids=1&tab=1&lp=4&QI=

Even though not indexed at either site, I found this publication to be
quite useful for my research regarding Gleiwitz and surrounding areas.

It helped me for example to verify my gg-gm's birth date - according
to several sources she was born Oct 6, 1829, but her death certificate
put her birth year at 1831. Checking the relevant issue of the
Oberschlesische Wanderer, I found a birth announcement for Oct 6,
1829, putting that question to rest. I also found birth dates for
several of her siblings that I did not have before.

Additionally, issues contain death announcements and occasional
marriage and engagement notes as well as advertisements >from local
businesses, which give a whole different glimpse into the daily lives
of our ancestors. For instance, my ggg-gf Ludwig SCHLESINGER often
advertised to announce to the public that he had received new goods at
his store, he was occasionally looking for tenants and he also
threatened his debtors with court action if they didn't pay their
debts.

While it can be a bit time-consuming to find information for a certain
person, especially if an exact date is not known, it is still a great
resource to know about and use. Tip: These announcements and
advertisements are usually found on the last 2 - 3 pages of each paper.

Best regards, Irene Peters, Berlin, Germany iupfamilyresearch@gmail.com

put her birth year at 1831. Checking the relevant issue of the
Oberschlesische Wanderer, I found a birth announcement for Oct 6,
1829, putting that question to rest. I also found birth dates for
several of her siblings that I did not have before.

Additionally, issues contain death announcements and occasional
marriage and engagement notes as well as advertisements >from local
businesses, which give a whole different glimpse into the daily lives
of our ancestors. For instance, my ggg-gf Ludwig SCHLESINGER often
advertised to announce to the public that he had received new goods at
his store, he was occasionally looking for tenants and he also
threatened his debtors with court action if they didn't pay their
debts.

While it can be a bit time-consuming to find information for a certain
person, especially if an exact date is not known, it is still a great
resource to know about and use. Tip: These announcements and
advertisements are usually found on the last 2 - 3 pages of each paper.
