My friend is the baby mentioned in the memoir at
http://www.remember.org/florence/part3.html -- the first child born
in Czortkow after it was liberated by the Red Army.

She hopes to travel to her birth place for the first time this fall and is
eager to hear >from someone who has been to the town -- to hear
what remnants of Jewish sites survive, to get recommendations for
accommodations and guides, etc.

If you can help, please contact me and I'll put you in touch.

Thanks.

Hi all,

I am trying to find the records >from the Miadler Untertutzung Verein,

Sign Up Now for Special Events at IAJGS Boston Conference #belarus

Florence Schumacher, Boston 2013 Publicity Chair
 

If you have been waiting to sign up for the special events at the IAJGS
2013 Boston conference, time is running out.

The tours (sign up at www.tours.iajgs2013.org ) are very popular -- filling
up fast and selling out. In response to the high demand, we are pleased to
announce that we are offering a second walking tour of Boston's Old South
End, but we do not have that capability for any of the other tours.

The two bus tours are also filling up. Visit the Touro Synagogue
(www.tourosynagogue.org), America's oldest synagogue and a national
historic site, as it celebrates its 250th anniversary this year. The
curator and archivist of the synagogue's visitor center, David Kleiman,
will travel on the bus with the group to provide background and then will
lead the tour. The Colonial Jewish Burial Ground
(http://www.loebtouro.org/jll_cem.shtml), generally closed to the public,
will be opened especially for our group. Tour Date & Destination: Sunday,
August 4, Newport, Rhode Island.

Visit the Yiddish Book Center (www.yiddishbookcenter.org) which rescued
over a million Yiddish books >from dumpsters around the world as the older
generation of Yiddish speakers passed on and their children could not read
the language of their parents and ancestors. This ongoing campaign has
saved Yiddish literature for future generations and made the widespread
university-level study of Yiddish language and literature possible. It
earned Aaron Lansky, the Center's founder and director, a "Genius Grant"
from the MacArthur Foundation and an invitation to be the keynote speaker
at our opening session. Tour Date & Destination: Friday, August 9,
Amherst, Massachusetts.

The special events involving meals (sign up at www.meals.iajgs2013.org) --
Breakfasts with Experts, SIG Luncheons, and the Gala Banquet -- have
limited space and a sign-up deadline of July 24. Genzyme is offering a
symposium on Ashkenazi Jewish genetic diseases, with a specially priced
breakfast on Thursday. The banquet on Thursday night features the
outstanding Zamir Chorale (www.zamir.org) of Boston.

The 19 computer workshops (sign up at www.workshops.iajgs2013.org) -- four
using Mac computers -- have very limited space. Subjects range >from Steve
Morse's popular "One-Step Search" tools to Reunion(R) and Family Tree
Maker(R) genealogy software. The hands-on workshops can teach you new
skills in doing research in Bessarabia, Hungary, Latvia, or Poland or how
better to use the Internet, social media, or JewishGen.

Drohitchin, Belarus Vital Records #belarus

k zeff
 

I am descended >from the Feldman & Kamenetsky families of Drohitchin. I have
the yizkor books for Drohitchin and have found many family members included there,
thanks to my great uncle Joe Feldman. There is a branch of the family,
the Meshevsky or Mishovsky branch, that is related but I do not know exactly how.
I am hoping that there are vital records available for Drohitchin where I can
continue my research. Is anyone aware of the availability of vital records for
Drohitchin?


Thank you.

Hello,

A friend is looking for two sisters who entered the US through the port
of Boston. She only knows their Yiddish names, Sheindl and Guizi
Sherman. I've been unable to find them in census or ship records.
Could anyone suggest some English translations for "Sheindl" and
"Guizi"?

Thanks very much.

Re: Mt. Carmel cemetery records for Joachim WILLHEIM #general

Carol Rombro Rider
 

Judy Stonefield was lucky that Barbara Mannlein was able to help her
find the record she was looking for.

It is a very good research tip - - when you can't find someone that you
just know should be there, try putting the name in backwards. Even on the
same census record I have on occasion found most people listed first name
first, surname second - - and then suddenly, there is a surname first and
first name last! Crazy? Yes. But you can't fight it.

So if you are looking for someone and can't find them, try to reverse the names.
I do this regularly and find things that would have stay buried for years.....

Cemetery and mortuary research advice update #general

Just a note to thank responders who encouraged me to not be reluctant to
contact the mortuary or cemetery connected with the burial of my great uncle
Louis Schwed. I didn't contact the mortuary, but an email to the cemetery did
provide me with the name of the brother who handled Louis's arrangements, a
piece of information that helped me understand a little more about family
relationships.
