Plans for the 35th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy in
Jerusalem >from July 6-10, 2015 are in full swing. The full program is
rich in activities and possibilities. Unique to this conference is the
opportunity for you to take advantage of having a family reunion with your
relatives living in Israel. Six million Jews live in Israel and they are
related to Jews throughout the world. One/some of them are related to
you! This is a grand opportunity to get to know them, explore family ties
and links and break down brick walls in your research. Use our volunteer
experts to help you contact your relatives and arrange for a family
reunion during the conference period. Look for our guide and tips to
planning for your meeting here. Many of us have found testimony at Yad
Vashem on our family members by Israelis whom we do not know. Now is the
time to enlist our help and connect with them and their descendants.

As previously announced, a Shabbaton (Friday-Saturday) weekend will
precede the Conference, followed by an Exploration Sunday of tours and
programs (including a Yad Vashem option) prior to the official Conference
opening on Monday.

Visit www.iajgs2015.org to register now! Registration is now open for
everyone including Israeli residents.

We have negotiated cancellation insurance that will cover both hotel and
total registration refunds, valid up to almost the eve of the conference
(see details at www.iajgs2015.org under the "Registration" tab FAQ).

ViewMate Translation Request - Polish; SCHNEIDER #general

Lynne Schneider
 

I have posted to ViewMate 5 Polish Birth Records for my husband's father and
his four siblings. For each one I would like to have a complete translation
of the handwritten record (I have the translation of the printed form). I am
pretty sure that the written record is in Polish but it might be German. Due
to the file size limitations, only the record for Israel SCHNEIDER has the
form headers included. It is the same for each birth record. This is the
first time I have found any Polish records for this limb of my family and we
am really anxious to see what they tell us.

Re: Yiddish/Hebrew first name confusion #general

tom.venetia@...
 

Good morning Toby,
Shepsel (or Shepsil, Schepsel in German spelling, shin-ayin-pe-samech) is a
Yiddish pet name derived >from the Yidish word "sheps" meaning "sheep."
I could not find the etymological explanation of its root. The only similar
word is "schapen" which in Dutch also means "sheep."

Regards

Tom Venetianer

From: Toby Bird <tobyannebird@...>

Can I safely assume that Schepsel and Yosef are the same person? If not,
then I have the wrong Solomon Vogel. Also, does anyone know whether
the Yiddish name Schepsel is associated with a particular country in
"Russia?"

In Genealogy Indexer's latest newsletter, Logan Kleinwaks indicates that he has
added many yizkor books to his site

One can search these books for any family name. For the Skala Yizkor book, I
found many entries for my greatgrandfather.

I am very grateful to Logan for all his amazing work.

Help reading death record for Kyjov #austria-czech

ngaupakyip@...
 

I am looking for help in reading one line in the Kyjov death records
on badatelna in fond 1073, volume 973, image 13. Direct link is
http://www.badatelna.eu/reprodukce/?fondId=1073&zaznamId=1107318&reproId=3687762

The fifth entry >from the bottom on the left side of the page, dated 25
July 1818, appears to read "Anna Freund" as name of deceased. I am
asking for
(a) Confirmation that I am reading the name correctly.
(b) Transcription of the cause of death in the final column of the
record. It appears that the first word is "Mutter." Given the young
age of the woman, I wonder if this indicates death in childbirth.

Thanks,
Michael Gordy
