I am happy to announce the latest upload into the Hungarian databases, close to
10,000 entries. This time our special thanks go to two transcribers who went
personally into local archives, trascribed several registers and then donated them
for our databases. Radovan Sremac transcribed all the registers (Births, Marriages
and Deaths) >from two smaller communities that are now in present day Serbia:
Erdevik and Sid, while Peter Absolon took upon himself to photograph and
transcribe a voluminous Kassa register (now Kosice, Slovakia) covering the death
records >from 1915 to 1938. And last but not least we can thank our regular much
ppreciated contributor, Marelynn Zipser, for her tireless work in Salt Lake City.
This upload contains her transcriptions of all the microfilms >from Onod, Ozd,
Bolyok, Sajokazincz and Nagykanizsa. Finally, we have also added some new material
to our Szatmar and Szilagy collections: Aranyosmeggyes, Amacz, Erendred, Erdod,
Nagykaroly and Szilagynagyfalu.


Sarah Feuerstein
Hungarian Vital Records Coordinator

Moderator: Koszonom szepen! Many thanks to Sarah and her hard-working volunteers.
If their efforts help you to find your family consider showing your appreciation by

Alaska Cruise Opportunities with IAJGS Conference Announced #poland #ciechanow

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

Please read the entire message before responding. If you wish to book one
of our cruises, the booking information and additional information on the
cruises is on the conference blog at http://www.iajgs2016.org/blog/ . Due
to limited availability, our travel agent will have to take deposits on a
first-come first-served basis. First of all, we want to thank all of you
who indicated to us that you were interested in taking an Alaska cruise
either before or after the Conference in Seattle, next summer. When we sent
out the message, we hoped we might get 20 or 25 responses, enough to put
together a group of about 40-50. We received over 60 responses, indicating
an interest >from a total of over 130 people, including spouses and families
(and, in at least one case, neighbors) Due to the timing of cruises
available, many of the cruises we looked at were already close to or
completely sold out. We determined that by booking through Sharon Furlong,
a travel agent who is very experienced with Alaska cruises, we could offer
each cruiser a personalized experience based on their interests. There is
no additional charge for this service, and she will make you aware of
discounts available, which may include retired military, AARP, former
cruisers, etc. In addition, depending on the size of each group, the cruise
lines involved will make a contribution to the Conference as a sponsor.
Instructions for booking follow the descriptions of the cruises. All
cruises depart >from the Seattle Ship Terminal Pier 91, which is a convenient
10 minute cab ride >from the Conference hotel. As noted, some of these
cruises have specials for people who book quickly.

In order to make the cruises available to the most people possible, we have
decided to offer three choices:

Pre-Conference Cruise

A Pre-Conference Cruise departs Seattle, Friday afternoon, July 29, 2016 at
5:00 PM, returning to Seattle on Friday morning, August 5, 2016 at 8 AM
onboard the Celebrity Solstice.

Two Post-Conference Cruise Choices

We have elected to offer two post-conference cruises, both departing Seattle
on Sunday, August 14 at 4 in the afternoon and returning Sunday, August 21
in the morning. Boarding begins at 1:00 PM and you must be aboard by 3:30
PM. Both ships appeal to slightly different clientele, so you may wish to
consider this.

The Ruby Princess offers a variety of opportunities for a family oriented
cruiser

The Holland America Lines' MS Amsterdam departs Seattle and offers a more
adult-oriented cruise.

IMMERSE YOURSELF IN THE BEAUTY AND GRANDEUR OF ALASKA. >from THE EPIC
LANDSCAPES AND THE INCREDIBLE WILDLIFE TO THE HISTORIC AND COLORFUL CULTURE,
THE GREAT LAND IS A DESTINATION THAT WILL INSPIRE, AWE, AND LEAVE YOU WITH
MEMORIES YOU WILL NEVER FORGET.

Booking Your Cruise

We have made exclusive arrangements with Sharon Furlong , a Travel Agent who
has over 30 years of experience with Sharon's Travelers, an affiliate of
Incentive Connection Travel, to book cruises on behalf of the Conference
attendees. She has already reserved a limited number of cabins for each
cruise for conference attendees and their families and friends. You may
contact Sharon Furlong by Email at sharonstravelers@hotmail.com, mentioning
IAJGS Cruise in the subject line, or contact Sharon directly at (631)
357-7947 for voice or for text messages. Please do not call her between the
hours of 6 PM to 9 AM, Eastern Time (GMT-4), as this is her cell number.
Sharon is the owner and she will personally handle your booking. Please do
not contact the Conference chairs or IAJGS, as Sharon has all the
information available on these cruises. Sharon and the cruise lines will be
donating a portion of all fees for the cruises to help underwrite the
conference.

Additional information, including the itineraries of all three cruises is
now on the conference blog at http://www.iajgs2016.org/blog/. When these
cruises are sold out, we will not be able to accommodate anyone else, so do
not delay!

Thank you for your interest. We look forward to seeing you in Seattle and
enjoy a lovely cruise! Bon voyage!

ATTN: Inquiry into Maternal Jewish lineage- Horeish/Hereish/Hereysh/Horeysh.... #germany

JeanPierre Juliet <jeanpierre2308@...>
 

To all who can assist me I am >from Australia. I am 30 years of age.
Firstly I'd like to wish you all a Shanah Tovah!
I have been searching for my maternal great grandmother's family records
migration paths, censuses and any relevant information on the direct
family tree.

My great grandmother was born approximately in the 1920s. I know this much
- that her parents moved to the Middle East at some indefinite point in
time and were forced to convert to the Shi'ite sect of Islam.

This still baffles my mother and my grandmother to this day since we do
not know why or when this occurred and what drove my great grandmother's
family to the Middle East in the first place!

I found that her family's name in various databases(Czech, Austria,
Romania, Germany, Israel) phonetically matches the following formats
since immigration officers/ record keepers were notorious in spelling
this surname: (please note: CH KH & H sounds at the start of the name
are equivalent depending on which country transliterated the name )
HOIRESH
HOREISH
HEREISH
HERESH
HORESH
HOREYSH
HARESH

I would like to firstly obtain information on the family history. I am only
aware that my maternal line come >from Jewish German/Bohemian/Scandinavian
and Iberian descent.

If there is anyone who can assist me to find the migration routes,
historical information, or any documentation- family trees etc. of my
maternal great grandmother's lineC you would have literally solved my
family's long-lost puzzling history and my greatest appreciation
would be extended to you! I hope to hear >from someone who can assist me!

Warmest Regards & Shalom, JeanPierre, Sydney Australia

ViewMate Translation Request - Polish (HOFFER & PRZEKUPNIK from Biala Podlaska) #general

WALTER ELIAS
 

I've posted a marriage record >from Biala Podlaska in 2 parts in Polish for
which I need a translation. It is on ViewMate at the following addresses ...
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM42839
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM42840

Surnames are HOFFER and PRZEKUPNIK. I am interested in the name of the groom,
the maiden name of the bride, the ages of the couple, parents' names and the
occupation of the groom.

In this record the surname of the groom does not correspond to his
Hebrew/Yiddish signature which is HOFFER. The name on the marriage record
seems to be ICKHOFF or ICKHOLF. I would appreciate if someone else sees the
discrepancy and can explain it.

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.
Thank you very much.

Great Synagogue and its surrounding Shulhoyf of Vilna, #lithuania

Jon Seligman
 

The outstanding Great Synagogue of Vilna and its surrounding Shulhoyf, was
once the most important monument of Litvak Jewry. Regrettably, like most of
the monuments of Jewish culture in Lithuania, the Synagogue was destroyed
during and after the Holocaust. Now a team of researchers plan to excavate
and preserve the remains as part of an overall project for a fitting
memorial for the Jews of Vilna and their heritage at the site of the Great
Synagogue.

Full information about the project, possibilities to participate can be
