Announcing A Nacao Hebrea: Prosopography of the Portuguese Jewish Nation #germany

Michael Waas
 

Hi,

The team behind A Nacao Hebrea: Prosopography of the Portuguese Jewish
Nation, is proud to announce the formal opening of our project.

Our project, led by Drs. Aron Sterk and Florbela Veiga Frade, Ton
Tielen, and myself, and advised by a diverse set of international
scholars, is seeking to create a large-scale, interdisciplinary
database of the Portuguese Jewish Nation. The Portuguese Jewish Nation
(A Nacao Hebrea) descends mainly >from the Jews who were forcibly
converted to Catholicism in 1497 in Portugal by King Manuel. From
their historic heartland in Iberia, France, Amsterdam, London,
Hamburg, Livorno, and Venice, they spread westward into the New World,
southward into Africa, and eastward into the Ottoman Empire, even
reaching India. They lived in between worlds, living multiple
identities at the same time.

This project will seek to create a prosopographical-relational
database, allowing scholars and genealogists alike to build and
contribute information >from all aspects of the Portuguese Jewish
diaspora.

You can see our formal announcement here, through Avotaynu Online:

If you are interested in more information, please don't hesitate to
email me. We are very excited to moving forward and provide a new
model for approaching Jewish History and Heritage.

Re: Le Havre Passenger lists--new resource? #general

Richard Cooper
 

Many thanks to Rob Weisskirch for this link. It was useful to me for a
different reason.

from the entry on the UK 1901 Census I knew that my grandmother's sister
Jessie MILLET had been born in Le Havre, France in 1896, but hitherto I had
not known how to get her birth record.

I clicked on the link in Rob's posting and then clicked on the link to
'Inscription Maritime'.

Then I clicked on 'Rechercher' on the top menu, then >from the
drop-down menu chose 'Archives en ligne' and then clicked on 'L'Etat
Civil'.
Then I clicked 'Cliquez ici pour acceder a l'Etat Civil en ligne'.

This takes you to here:
http://recherche.archivesdepartementales76.net/?id=recherche_guidee_etat_civil

from the drop-down menu in the 'Commune' box I chose 'Havre (Le)',
then 1896, then 'Havre (Le) > Registres Etat Civil > Naissances'. This
takes you to a 604 page ledger containing 2,100 births.

Starting on page 534 there is an alphabetical surname index which will
enable you to find the record you need.

This may seem a bit of a niche resource, but not only was there a
good-sized Jewish community in Le Havre around 1900, but it may have
been a point of embarkation for emigrants >from Eastern Europe to Great
Britain, the British Empire and the Americas who for whatever reason
chose not to leave >from the German North Sea ports,

All the Best and Happy ancestor-spotting!

IAJGS Conference Wrap-UP #hungary

Vivian Kahn
 

It was wonderful to see so many of you at the conference in Seattle! We had great attendance at the Hungarian sessions presented by Karesz Vandor, Dejan Suc, and yours truly, at the H-SIG luncheon where Sandy Malek spoke, and at the H-SIG business meeting. Next time they have to schedule us for larger rooms!

We raised $205 for the Hungarian SIG General Fund >from the first ever H-SIG raffle. The lucky winners got copies of Auslander's Genealogical Gazetteer, the Talma 1914 Hungarian Atlas, Lynn Schneider's video Budapest American Quest. A Family's Journey to 1920s Hungary, the recently published English version of Koerner's "How They Lived: The Everyday Lives of Hungarian Jews, 1867-1940â??, JGSLA's book on Jews in the Great War, and a book on the Kezmarok Cemetery. Koszonom szepen to the estate of Pamela Weisberger, Karesz Vandor, Sandy Malek, and Madeleine Isenberg for their generous donations.

If you gave me your card because you would like to receive the revised handouts for the Northwest Migration or Maramaros sessions, please be patient. I had a business trip out of town since returning >from the conference and am still catching up. I also hope to have all of the handouts uploaded to the H-SIG website http://www.jewishgen.org/Hungary/ very soon. Judy Missel Gyori has volunteered to take on this important assignment so watch for improvements in the coming months.

Last but not at all least, I am very pleased to announce that our own Marelynn Zipser, who single-handedly indexed Jewish records >from the 1869 Census as well as many others, received long-overdue recognition >from IAJGS as Volunteer of the Year. In fact, Marelynn is probably eligible as Volunteer of MANY Years for her work. Gratulalok and mazel tov!

Best wishes to you all and, as always, feel free to contact me off-list with any questions.

Re: Le Havre Passenger lists--new resource? #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Rob Weisskirch asked about the Le Havre Passenger List that was listed on
Dick Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter. The French Genealogy Blog
posted a collection of surviving shipping documentation for Le Havre
registered vessels and held by the Departmental Archives.

Not all the documentation survived, therefore the collection does not represent
full listings of all shipping >from Le Havre. Some documentation is held at other
archives. These are not only passenger lists, but fishing boats and vessels
sailing to other French ports. The title of the entire collection is
Inscription Maritime which may be researched at:
http://recherche.archivesdepartementales76.net/?id=recherche_guidee_maritime
(in French only).

I have not personally used this site but for those who have ancestors who
traveled not by the usual passenger ships >from Le Havre to North America or
the French colonies it might be of use. The article may be read at:
http://tinyurl.com/j2mp6an

Original url:
http://french-genealogy.typepad.com/genealogie/2016/07/celebrate-le-havre-departing-passenger-lists-are-online.html

The article lists the different categories and dates of coverage >from the
mid 1700's to the mid 1900's.
