JGS of Colorado - Sun May 18 - Spend a Few Days with More Than 1000 of Your Fellow Genealogists! #general

Terry Lasky <talasky@...>
 

"Spend a Few Days with More Than 1000 of Your Fellow Genealogists!"
Presented by Barry Halpern

Location: Jewish Community Center, 350 South Dahlia Street, Denver, CO
- in the Board Room

Date: Sunday May 18th 10:00 until noon

This session is open to the public!

Even if you don't plan to attend the IAJGS conference in Salt Lake City, you
should plan to attend this program!! The International Association of Jewish
Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) will be putting on their annual conference
this summer in Salt Lake City, Utah. If you've never been to one of these,
this year's venue is a prime spot for you to plan to attend. If you can't get
there, you can still benefit >from it even without attending.

Can you imagine what it would be like to spend quality time with more than a
thousand of your fellow Jewish Genealogists? Imagine the benefits you might
gain by being able to pick the brains of a group of people who are researching
YOUR shtetl? Your surname? Your ancestors' hometown?

The International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) is an
organization of organizations formed in 1988 to provide a common voice for
issues of significance to its members, to advance our genealogical avocation,
and to coordinate items such as the annual International Conference on Jewish
Genealogy. Member organizations originate >from six continents around the
world, including our own Jewish Genealogical Society of Colorado.

The IAJGS holds annual conferences which bring together a wide range of
international genealogists, amateur and professional, to share knowledge, to
teach, and to advance the Jewish Genealogical cause.

While attending a conference is a fantastic experience for any genealogist,
even if you cannot attend, you can benefit. Conference proceedings,
recordings, papers, etc. are available online for both the current year's
and past years' conferences.

Barry Halpern Bio

Barry Halpern has been researching his family history on and off for more than
15 years, though much more intensely during the past several years since he
retired >from a 35 year career in the insurance business. Barry and family have
had a long-time interest in Jewish communities in Asia, having lived and worked
there for about 20 years. Now that Barry is no longer a professional
businessperson, he has become an amateur at several pursuits: genealogy,
photography, astronomy and tennis, in addition to now being known as an amateur
book author. In addition to producing the JGSCO monthly e-newsletter and serving
on the LitvakSIG Board of Directors, Barry is also a member of the Jewish
Genealogical Society of Greater Boston.

New York Genealogy Class: June 1 #lithuania

Phyllis Kramer
 

Did your family live in New York? There are many interesting research
possibilities in the Big Apple! JewishGen's Intermediate Course,
Breaking Brick Walls in the United States, will focus on New York
Resources. This course will be especially useful to those who visit
NY; we'll have suggestions on where to research, where to wander and
how to get there.

If, despite basic online research (census >from familysearch &
ancestry, vital records >from italiangen) you have not yet found the
Hebrew names, birth year or town for your U.S. immigrant ancestors
consider this course as it focuses on the more esoteric documents our
ancestors generated, including naturalization, military and
governmental records, death records (probate, obituaries, cemeteries),
and local archival research.

We feature a personal mentoring program; students use our online
FORUM, post an ancestral branch, set goals for research, and work one
on one with the instructor. Eight text lessons can be downloaded to
read at your own pace and an optional field trip to a New York archive
will be scheduled. This course is open for enrollment. PLEASE read the
course descriptions and requirements (8-10 hours per week) on
www.jewishgen.org/education and email any questions.

I look forward to interfacing with every student.

Viewmate Translation request - Polish #poland

Eric Wickberg <eswickberg@...>
 

I've posted what I suspect is an affidavit or letter in Polish for
which I need a translation. It related to my Great Aunt Ester Golda
Janowsky who was living in Bialystok in 1920 while trying to get a
Visa to immigrate to the USA. At the time she was attempting to obtain
a Visa her sister Sophie in the USA was attempting to obtain one on
Ester Golda Janowsky's behalf. That affidavit identified Golda as
residing at Bessarabska Street No. 16 Bialystok, Poland. If possible
could anyone translating identify the type of document, and provide a
complete translation of the handwritten and letterhead portions.

The document is on ViewMate at the following address ...

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Thank you very much.

Fold 3's Holocaust collection is >from the United States Holocaust
Memorial Museum and the National Archives (US).

Fold3 offers Memorial Pages - you can create one in memory of someone in
your family or anyone who served in a US conflict on Fold3's Honor
Wall. If a search of the Honor Wall for the person's name doesn't
bring up an existing Memorial Page, you can easily create one
yourself.

Not only can you include documents and images >from Fold3's
collections on a Memorial Page, but you can upload records and photos
from your own collection and add facts, stories, and memories to the
page. To get to the Memorial Wall go to: http://tinyurl.com/kr7d6k5
