We are very pleased to share the following good news with everyone.

1. All conference registrants staying at the Sheraton hotel will
receive complimentary internet access in their guest room. If you
have not yet made your hotel reservation, do so without delay to
take advantage of this great deal. Use the link at the conference
website (the Hotel Registration button) to do so.

2. Not only will the banquet include the announcement of the IAJGS
Achievement Awards, the wonderful entertainment by Yisrael Campbell,
but there will also be drawings for 3 prizes. Those prizes are 4
hours of research by the following individuals (and the country of
research): Jordan Auslander (U.S.); Michael Goldstein (Israel); and
Anthony Joseph (U.K). If you have not yet purchased your banquet(s),
be sure to do so before the deadline of July 19, 2009 (midnight U.S.
central time). Don't miss out on the fun way to end the hectic
conference week.

We thank Jordan, Michael, and Anthony for generously contributing
their professional time and expertise for these drawings.

We also encourage you to look at the list of breakfasts with experts,
SIG lunches, workshops and tours. Any one, or more of them, will
enhance your conference experience because they are certainly worth
attending. Make sure you purchase your ticket(s) for these events to
guarantee that you get a space.

One of the workshops is already full and we have added a repeat
performance (A second beginner/intermediate Family Tree Maker session
will be held on Thursday, August 6 >from 8:15 to 10:15 AM.)

The breakfast (Monday, August 3, 7 AM - 8 AM) with Miriam Weiner and
Olga Muzychuk, experts, is almost filled to capacity. Don't wait a
moment if you want to attend that breakfast.

The conference website is www.philly2009.org That is where you go to
register, update your registration and learn all about the great
things that will be going on there. Be sure to click on the various
buttons to find details.

See you in a month,

I am still looking for the above cousin. I received a suggestion to write
to the social security department with her name, parents name, birth date
and ask them to forward this to Ruth if she is still alive. Has anyone ever
tried this? Will it work?

easy ordering of SS-5s (original applications for Social Security numbers) #general

Renee Steinig
 

Chris Gould <oldandintheway9@yahoo.co.uk> asked for the best and
quickest way to order an copy of his great-aunt's original application
for a Social Security number (SS-5).

These documents can now be ordered online, using a credit card. See
the Social Security Administration's Guide to Freedom of Information
Requests at
<http://www.ssa.gov/foia/html/foia_guide.htm#Requests>.

Chris also asked whether the application will give any details on the
places of birth of his great-aunt's parents. An SS-5 includes the
applicant's birth place and his/her parents' names but no further
information about the parents. See two sample applications at
<http://www.sephardicstudies.org/records.html>.

Essex County (Massachusetts) Training School, 1910 #general

shirley@...
 

I just found a relative in the 1910 US Census. Rather than living
with his impoverished step mother, this 13 year old boy was living in
the Essex County Training School on Marston Street in Lawrence,
Massachusetts. Most of the fifty-some boys were aged 10-18, all were
'white'. They were listed as "pupils".

1. Was this a trade school for orphans or wards of the Court?

2. Was this a residential institution for 'at risk', truant or
incorrigible boys?

3. Who paid tuition?

4. Some pupils were also identified as 'inmates'. Why?

5. 'L' and 'O' were sometimes added in the body of the census sheet.
These are not margin notes. Any clue what those designations might
indicate?

6. Is there a way to learn how long the child was a resident, or when
he was initially enrolled?

I am hoping there are some kind and knowledgeable souls among you who
can help me find out more.

Dina VAYNEROVICH (nee GELER), Vilna --> ? #latinamerica

Danielle Weiner <lovemom51@...>
 

I am new to the Latin America SIG but have been a member of the
LitvakSIG for several years. I have been unsuccessful thus far in
determining the fate of my grandmother, Dina VAYNEROVICH (nee GELER)
whose last known location was Vilna some time around 1920. Her
husband, Daniel Vaynerovich, with whom she had two sons, Kalman and
Isaak (died at three weeks of age), died in 1919. Kalman was my
father. It is believed that Dina left the family before the death
of her husband and may have remarried.

I have been unable to find any trace of her in Vilna records since
the birth of Isaak in 1912 and am starting to "cast a wider net" with
the possibility that she may have left Vilna for another country.

As many Eastern European Jews immigrated to South America, especially
Argentina I am told, I am posting this message with the hope that
someone may recognize these names.

Many thanks to you all,

Danielle Weiner
