Special feature of the IAJGS Conference in Seattle and a Conference Preview #germany

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

For the first time in conference history, the 36th International
Conference on Jewish Genealogy will offer a special program to help
Jewish educators incorporate genealogy and family history into the
school curriculum -- whether it is a day school, synagogue school
or a high school. The program will take place on the first day of the
conference, Sunday, August 7, >from 9am to 2pm. The educators' program
requires a separate registration >from the regular conference;
attendees at the educators' sessions receive breakfast and lunch and,
for an extra fee, they can attend the keynote lecture.

This year's conference will also feature a Jewish Film Festival created
by Jewish film scholar and teacher of cinema Eric Goldman. Other
highlights of the Seattle 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. As at previous conferences, remote streaming of
selected programs will be available through LIVE!

The early registration period for the regular conference, which runs
until April 30, offers the lowest fees, with savings of $55 for the full
conference. Hotel rooms are going very quickly. To get a room at the
conference rate, you must first register for the conference.

For a conference preview and a preview of what you can expect in
Seattle, check out the webinar given by co-chair Chuck Weinstein to
IGRA earlier in March - go to http://www.iajgs2016.org and click on
the webinar - don't forget to check out all the other great
information on the website!

We're looking forward to seeing you in Seattle August 7-12.

Re: Prison and General Hospital: Special addresses in Lemberg (Lwow Lviv) and great site for maps #galicia

It was declared the State of Siege in Galicia in 1864 to 1865, after
the uprising started in 1863. Most of the activists were youngsters.

Probably, this might be the explanation.

Actually, I said "single men" not young men -- to the best of my memory,
unlike (some) other death records, convicts never have spouses
mentioned -- which is not to say they weren't married. They were not
necessarily young, nor unwedded.

It's a good question. I hadn't actually thought of why Jewish men were in
prison - and, given the huge proportion of Jews in Lwow in those days, it
stands to reason there would be some in prison as well. Was their part in
among the prisoners higher than the general population? Lower? It
would certainly be an interesting sociological-historical study for
someone to do. (Does anyone know if it was done?) A separate question
of course would be the relative number of the deaths in of Jewish
prisoners, as opposed to the number of non-Jews.

To rephrase your question, Simon: I too am wondering why were people
put in prison in Lwow? Why were Jews put in prison in Lwow? (Same
reasons? Different reasons?) There would be crime of course. But what
about debts? Politics? Etc.

Headstone Photograph - Mt. Judah, Ridgewood, Queens, NY #general

krothstein
 

Hello,
I am wondering if anyone could stop by Mt. Judah Cemetery in Brooklyn/Queens
and take a picture of 2 headstones. This will help me solve a DNA mystery
with someone who is probably related to me. We share not only Y-DNA but a
huge amount of autosomal. In addition the photographic similarities are
beyond identical. If I can return the favor I would be happy. I live in the
Los Angeles area. Please reply to me privately so that I could give the
details. I would like to thank you up front for this.

MORRISON Surname emigrated from Russia to England in late 1890s #general

Armand Morrison
 

I have been researching my family history and can only get as far back
as my paternal family's emigration to England in the late 1890's.

My great grandfather's English name was Joseph (Rebecca) MORRISON but
it is doubtful that this was his natural name. We believe that they
moved >from Russia to avoid the pogroms and settled somewhere in
England. The MORRISONs had 4 children: Mildred, Rose, Irving & Daniel.
They moved >from England to Boston, MA around 1905 and then to Brooklyn
around 1915 or so.

I am in search of 2 things:

1. Suggestions on how to research the surname prior to it changing to MORRISON
2. Insights as to possible siblings to Joseph MORRISON >from Russia

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Armand Morrison

Records of Unin today in Slovakia #general

LISBETH
 

Hello,

Since many months I try to find the Jewish registers for the village of
Unin (Skalic, Holic or Nitra district) today in Slovakia. I search the
registers for the years 1750 to 1840, especially a wedding before 1837

On JewishGen Hungary I only found a Census for the year 1869 in this
village (Unin/Holic/Nyitra) with the name I search : FRANKL

On FamilySearch I have looked the registers for Holic (Skalika) in
Slovakia, unsuccessfully for the years that interest me. But here also
the name FRANKL is on a few births like for some deaths

Does anyone know where I can find these records, if they exist?

Many thanks in advance for your help.

sent a telegram >from CeglÊd in 1945 to the family of Adolph Klein in Pittsburgh.
In the telegram, Lily says that her parents and Marguerits (perhaps a sister) are
lost, and she is alone. The Klein family came >from Sarkad, and I can trace them
back several generations to Martin Klein, born in Sarkad 1840, son of Armand Klein
