Lifetime Achievement award #warsaw #poland

Shalom,

I was very excited, like many of you, to learn that former JewishGen Vice
President, Joyce Field, last week won the Lifetime Achievement award >from
the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies Conference in
Philadelphia. For me, this was certainly a matter of "it's about time" since
she was so deserving of this notable award. She dedicated so many years, so
much time, initiative and thought into the JewishGen site and her hallmarks
are there at every corner - in the Yizkor Book project in the JOWBR and much
more.

I send out my own "kol hakavod" and "mazal tov" to Joyce and thank her on
behalf of all those who continue to enjoy the fruits of her labor.

Yours,
Lance Ackerfeld

NARA (USA) Proposes Addendum to Ancestry.com Digitization Agreement #general

Jan Meisels Allen <janmallen@...>
 

The (USA) National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) proposed an
addendum to their existing digitization contract with Ancestry.com. The
original contract required all digitization at NARA's facility. The
proposed change would permit Ancestry.com to digitize at their off-site
facility in Silver Spring, Maryland. A limited pilot to determine whether
the archival materials can be safely and securely transported off site
started in December 2008. It has been successful and would significantly
increase the digitization capacity. There would be no cost to NARA for the
off-site operation.

Any one interested in commenting on the proposed change should write to
Vision@nara.gov or by fax to 301-837-0319. Comments need to be received by
August 31, 2009.

For more information on the proposed change go to:

1869 census - search results #hungary

tomerbr@...
 

Dear friends,
I would like to share an interesting observation regarding the
search results of the 1869 census, on the AHD.

In the past, if one would search for a surname and the search results
included that surname as a woman's maiden name, than the search results included
all the people in her household - the wife (whose maiden name was the search
parameter),and the husband and children, whose surname is different than the
maiden name.

Currently, the same search would result in the details of the wife, only.

Example: In 2007 I saved the search results for the surname "DUSINZKY".
It included a household in the town of Novomeszto, with 5 people whose
surname is ADLER. One of them was the wife, whose maiden name was DUSINZKY.
Now, the same search give only the details of the wife.


Is there a way to bypass this problem?

So be aware of it and when you get such a maiden name result, search also
according to the current surname.

I guess that this work-around is partial, since the search result, whether
surname or maiden name, can be of a distant relative, servant etc., whose
surname is different than that of the other household members, so finding the
family they lived with would not be easy...

Best regards,
Tomer Brunner, Israel

Re: Subject: Noah Society New York, NY 19th Century - Questions about #germany

Sandi Goldsmith
 

I have a copy of the Noah Benevolent Widows' and Orphans' Association
Golden Jubilee booklet. It explains the whole history of Noah. Briefly, the
Noah Lodge was founded Jan. 7, 1848 and joined the Free Sons of Israel which
was organized in March of the same year. In May of 1870 Noah split >from the
FSOI and became Noah Benevolent Widows' and Orphans' Assoc. In 1934 the
85th Anniversary booklet has the same information but it was then known as
Noah Benevolent Society.

My husband's Goldschmidt family >from Sprendlingen was very active for many
years. I found much information at the American Jewish Historical Society
in NYC.

I'd ask your question on EarlyAmericanSig as well.

request on Polish archives (Breslau/Worclaw) #germany

moschpun@...
 

Hello,

I am a brazilianist historian, live and work in France. I am writing about
a Brazilian Righteous between the Nations, Aracy de Carvalho Tess. She
worked at the Brazilian consulate in Hamburg in the 1930s and gave visas
to German Jews who emigrated to Brazil. I have met a group of them in
Sao Paulo.

Some of them did not live in Hamburg, but she managed to give them visas,
even if their city of residence was not under the consulate responsibility.

I have a problem with a couple who lived in Breslau (Worclaw, after the war ),
the Heilborn. I cannot find in the Polish archives their emigration
dossier ( Oberfinanzpraesident ) as I found for the others, Hamburg
rersidents, in the Hamburg State Archives. I have only their Brazilian
immigration documents. They are dead and the family know nothing about their
emigration history, but their first daughter, born in Brazil, has the same
first name as the lady who helped them to emigrate, Aracy...

I wrote to the Jewish Historical Institute (Warsaw) and to the Worclaw
archives (Archiwum Pa=C5=84stwowe we Wroc=C5=82awiu). They both said they
have nothing about the Heilborn. I tried to insist with the Worclaw archives
and still think their negative answer is not convincing, but they repeated
the same first answer.

Does anyone have information about the Oberfinanzpraesident documents in
cities like Breslau, which are not in Germany anymore ?

Thank you for any advice or information you can give me on this matter.
