On the Page of Testimony for her sister Chana (maybe the others too - I
didn't check) she says she lived on Kibbutz Yagur.

They have a web presence at http://www.yagur.com - in Hebrew. Someone
there may know where to find the family.

I'm looking for Miklos and Sarin (Krausz) Roth >from Satoraljaujhely, who

Help With Yiddish Name Translation #general

I recently posted a Yiddish paragraph found on the reverse of a photo.
Unfortunately, the only bit of text that was not translated >from Yiddish,
was the name following "This is my son..........". Unfortunately, the
text is difficult to read, so I thought to give a generous translator
another go at it..
Any help would be appreciated.

JewishGen Sub-Carpathia SIG web site; Updates #hungary

Marshall Katz
 

Dear Sub-Carpathia researchers,

If you haven't visited the JewishGen Sub-Carpathia SIG "portal" web site
lately, a few significant updates to the web site have been made:

Sub-Carpathia SIG Web Site address: http://www.jewishgen.org/sub-carpathia/

1. At the bottom center of the home page: "Sub-Carpathia Gazetteer" -

Here you will find a list of villages and towns, in two columns, by their
former Hungarian name and by their Ukrainian name today. Clicking on the
village or town name in either column, opens a new web page to a map
with the place centered on the map. Here you have the option of Satellite
or Earth view (Google Earth required, http://www.google.com/earth/ ).
Use the plus or minus to zoom in or out in any view.

2. In the left-hand column: "Ancestral Villages" -

Images of houses found in the historical village, in Kolochava, have been
added to the slide show. One is a reconstructed "Jewish Prayer House" and
another is Jewish-owned "Korchma" (a place that sold spirits). More
historical village images >from Kolochava will be found on the Kolocha
KehilaLink web site, currently in progress.

3. In the left-hand column: "Archival Records" -

The list of archival records provided by Jordan Auslander has been removed
because all of the books in the Transcarpathian Archive were recently
renumbered and the earlier list is no longer an accurate reference list.
The good news is that I am currently drafting a revised list of holdings in
the Transcarpathian Archive, to be added to the web site in this section,
in the near future.

4. In the right-hand column: "Synagogues" -

Here you will find a slide show with synagogue images yesterday and today.

5. In the right-hand column: "Cemeteries" -

Here you will find a slide show with one image for each cemetery visited.

6. In the right-hand column: "Photo Album" -

Here you will find a slide show with one image for each village or town
visited.

7. More images will be added as I receive or photograph them during my
travels. If you have an image to contribute, or any questions, contact me
off-list.

8. Lastly, besides making a donation to JewishGen, you can now donate to
the JewishGen Sub-Carpathia SIG at the following link (both tax-deductible
for US residents):

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County

Hillcrest Drive, Thousand Oaks, CA

NOTE: Different Day of Week and Time of Day for This One Meeting!

The Program: >from the Spanish Inquisition to the Present: A Search for
Jewish Roots

Whether or not you have known-Sephardic roots, you will find this program of
interest-both for the genealogical techniques Genie Milgrom will discuss as
well as her genealogical journey through time as she criss-crossed the
planet for her Converso or Marrano roots. Milgrom was able to document fully
an unbroken maternal lineage of 15 grandmothers going back to the late
1400's.
She will tell us her personal story and explain in detail the methods she
used to open up the Jewish history of the small village in Spain where her
ancestors resided for over 500 years. Today she is still very active and
preserving her findings in the village of Fermoselle, Spain which sits on
the border between Spain and Portugal.

Speaker: Genie Milgrom is an International Businesswoman and is currently
the President of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Miami. She is
also the author of the book, My 15 Grandmothers and is President of Tarbut
Sefarad-Fermoselle in Spain as well as an active member of the American
Society of Personal Historians. You can see more information on her website
at www.geniemilgrom.com . Book signing and purchasing opportunity--$15.00
per copy.

[Genie just returned >from a trip to Fermoselle, where the town's mayor
proclaimed to be making an Official Act and handed her the Symbolic Key to
the Jewish Quarter of The village along with a Pergamino to serve as a
Document of Historical Memory being given to a descendent of the Jews that
had lived in this town of Fermoselle. In history this is only the second
time that a Mayor in Spain has given a Symbolic Key to a descendent of the
Spanish Jews. If you wish to read about her trip a brief write-up is in the
JGSCV's current issue of Venturing Into Our Past accessible on our website:
www.jgscv.org and click on newsletters 2012 issues for the November issue.]

Our schmoozing corner starts 20 minutes before the program (6:40 p.m.)
facilitated by Werner Frank, founding JGSCV member.

We will have Categories A & C of our traveling library available beginning
at 6:30 PM to shortly after the meeting.

Our 5-minute genealogical hint at the beginning of the program will be by
JGSCV President, Jan Meisels Allen on researching US military records to
commemorate Veterans Day.

The Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County is
dedicated to sharing genealogical information, techniques and research tools
with anyone interested in Jewish genealogy and family history.
