Sarah ABRAMS-Mass. marriage records #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

I may have found something and wish your help.

Looking at Massachusetts marriage records I found a Sarah ABRAMS, born
in Russia 1869 and married Sam COHEN , son of Julius and Bessie
(COBRAIN) on June 24 1903. What excites me is that her father's
name is Isaac and her mother is Gitel-same as "my" Sarah's parents.

Her mother is listed as Gitel FREIDMAN. We are not sure of her maiden
name but have some sources which state that she was married to
LAZAROFF and or FRIEDBERG (this may be a variant on FREIDBERG).

So my request is , if anyone on this list is aware or has any personal
information as to the above Sarah and Sam COHEN (unfortunately very
common Jewish names). As I mentioned in my previous posts , my mother
met her great aunt Sarah (she doesn't mention her family name) in the
1930s when they were living on Coney Island, NYC.

TIA

13,210 Pictures of People in the Lodz Ghetto #general

Moishe Miller
 

Dear JGD Group,

I hope my note finds you well.

If you had a family member that was in the Lodz Ghetto, there may be a
photo of them available via the USHMM. If you are interested, I have
posted my experience in obtaining a photo of Chaja Hena (Heltcha) ZAND,
who perished in the Lodz Ghetto in 1943. My wife's family had no
pictures of any Pre-USA Zand family, and now, 74 years later, they do.

One more message of gratitude #general

Avraham Y. Kahana
 

This message is addressed to JewishGen as a whole, the genners community >from all
SIGs and Barbara Zimmer and Renee Steinig in particular, for all that has been
done, is and, as it looks like, will be, in the future - in anything with regards
to jewish genealogy, helping us jews re-establish broken family links >from the
past (often as a result of immigration/escape >from persecution).

I am today 34, and have been a member of this community as back as 2006, when I was
in my 25s (I had some 5, 6 years hiatus but am starting again :). It's a shame
people my age have no idea what goes on here. And even people the age of my mom,
who do not grasp the extension of such wonderful work (and who can imagine how much
effort, persistence, volunteer work has been put here, over all these years ?!).

I exchanged so many warm emails over these years, took part indirectly or directly
in a few fronts in giving my bits in restoring and preserving our history - such a
treasurable and honored one. How many of us do really have a grasp on the people we
come >from ? Their deeds ?! I urge everyone of you not to rest in this quest, in
rescuing our ancestors honor, digging deep to reveal the truth of our past, and
this way - revive ourselves.

I am writing this message as a very small and symbolic gesture of gratitude to all
the people engaged and related in JewishGen as a whole (and all related bodies,
such as Jri-Poland, etc), and in particular to two (there are much more, do not be
mistaken) of the most helpful and generous members of the community, Barbara
Zimmer and Renee Steinig, who recently virtually developed the whole story of me
reconnecting to our Tziperstein family via letters left with my grandfather z'l.

I have collected a couple of success stories, thanks God, and people tend to think
I must be, at this stage, some kind of expert or have lots of knowledge in the
field. But this is not true. All I really did was send hundreds (really) of emails
throughout these years. The only thing I had is perseverance and a urging call that
spurs me to not let my ancestors, to whom I owe the being born (literally, like my
grandparents surviving the Holocaust, under all circumstances) - be left behind.
All the rest are really fruits of the work of JewishGen's community.

In a short, thank you, very much, Barbara, Renee, and all the other volunteers
(ViewMate translators, among others !!!) for being so much generous, helpful,
offering your time without asking nothing in return, and - for being part in
meticulously gluing scattered pieces of our endeared history, back together.

Sincerely,
Avraham Yehoshua Kahana

Wednesday July 26 - GerSIG Day! #germany

Jeanette R Rosenberg OBE
 

Dear GerSIG members

A Tuesday recap: Two talks were delivered today on behalf of Gerhard
Buck, who was unwell and unable to join us at conference, one by Roger
Lustig, and one by Karen Franklin. Gerhard-- on behalf of all of us,
thank you for your talks and for all the work you put into them. We
all missed you, and hope you will soon be well again. For those of
you reading this who don't know Gerhard, he is a previous winner of
the Obermayer German Jewish History Award, see
http://obermayer.us/award/awardees/buck-eng.htm The other German
Jewish interest talk was my own. The handout for my talk will soon
appear on my blog, but has not yet been posted - this may take a day
or so and will be on the following link:
https://round2itgenealogy.wordpress.com/ It may take a day or so to
get posted due to conference - see below:

Our day has finally arrived. Wednesday July 26 is GerSIG day!

Our day will start early (at 7am) - with Breakfast Q&A with the German
Research Experts. This is a paid for session where attendees are
asked to bring their research questions with them. Alex, Roger and I
will do our best to answer. Like last year, we will in due course
post a summary of the questions on my blog - same address as above.

Next up is our invited guest speaker Dr Bettina Joergens >from the
State Archives of North-Rhine-Westphalia, who will give the first of
her two presentations "How to Find Ancestors in German Archives- and
Why?" This will - also be available over IAJGS Live!
http://iajgs2017.org/iajgs-live/

Then GerSIG Director Roger Lustig will present The Gatermann and RSA
Films: A Tragic Treasure. This will also be live!

After this - the GerSIG Business Meeting - I wrote about this in
detail a couple of days ago. Please do try to attend if you can. We
will post a meeting summary hopefully over the next few days, after
the conference.

This will be followed by the GerSIG luncheon - where Bettina will give
her second talk. She will go deeper into the history of archival
documents and holdings concerning the Jewish population and discuss
the reasons and backgrounds of the existence of records, knowledge and
narrations of Jewish family's histories.

The last GerSIG interest talk of the day is mid afternoon- when Leo
Baeck Institute (NY) archivist Michael Simonson will speak about
Ensuring Against Forgetting: the Arthur Obermayer Awards of 2017. He
will be joined in his presentation by Rolf Schmitt >from Bruchsal who
won the award this year - see:
http://obermayer.us/award/awardees/Schmitt-eng.htm

I hope you have been enjoying my conference emails, maybe they will
inspire you to join us at conference next year in Warsaw. We are
already making plans for an exciting invited GerSIG Guest speaker!

More tomorrow, Jeanette

ROSENBAUM -Tveria / Tzfat mid 19th cent. #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

Our family history has my greatgrandfather's grandfather, a R' Israel
of Ostrow ( a follower of R' Yehoshua HESCHEL of Apta) coming to
Eretz Yisrael (Palestine) somewhere around 1830-1840. He lived for
some years in Tveria &/or Tzfat and later (after the earthquake in
Tzfat ?) moved to Jerusalem. He came on his own, his grandson (my
greatgrandfather) R' Yacov Gedalia SCHECHTER came many years after him

The family theory is that his family name was ROSENBAUM and his children in Europe
changed their name to SCHECHTER as to their professions (Shochtim).

In the book "Tveria" (in hebrew which came out I believe in the 1960s
or 70s, there is a list of family names of people who lived in Tveria
but unfortunately there is no mention of first names or when they lived there
or >from what sources the author took the names. In the list there does
appear a ROZENBAUM but as mentioned, gives no information regarding this person.

Does anyone have any information regarding the above ROZENBAUM
mentioned in the book "Tveria" .

TIA.

Austria-Czech day at IAJGS 2017 in Orlando #austria-czech

E. Randol Schoenberg
 

We had a terrific day today at the 2017 IAJGS Conference in Orlando.

Our guest speaker, Julius Mueller, gave two fabulous presentations. His
first revealed details about essential information available >from
records related to declarations of death, Todeserklaerungen, both after
the war, and before. The second talk gave examples of records in
various regional and local archives that reveal where people moved after
1867, when Jews were allowed to live wherever they wanted to. In
between, I gave my annual "What's New" speech. The
powerpoint presentation I made is at http://tinyurl.com/y9f4kl2o. (The
new stuff is at the end.) I also had fun showing how some of our
attendees were related to each other, using Geni.com's
relationship finder, http://tinyurl.com/y8kedlro.

We followed the talks with a SIG meeting. Julie Tucker Risedorf
volunteered to become a SIG Moderator. We talked a lot about priorities
in raising funds >from our SIG to use for scanning or cemetery projects.
Members were encouraged to help create indices for the available vital
records on Badatelna.

Looking ahead to next year's conference in Warsaw, Poland, on
August 6-10,2018, http://www.iajgs2018.org/, we announced that Georg Gaugusch,
author of the incredible compendium of Viennese genealogies Wer einmal war, will be
attending the conference as our guest speaker. Because of the proximity
of Warsaw, we also discussed raising SIG funds to invite a number of
people who have been active helping us in Bohemia and Moravia. Next
year promises to be an exciting conference if all decide to attend.
