Gesher Galicia Luncheon Speaker and Galicia Programming at IAJGS Conference in Seattle #general

Tony Kahane <tkahane@...>
 

It is with great pleasure that Gesher Galicia announces that our
luncheon speaker at the IAJGS International Conference on Jewish
Genealogy will be Dr Sergey Kravtsov, who will present a talk on
"Galician Jewish Families: Histories and Legends". Dr Kravtsov will
discuss how many prominent Galician Jewish families became deeply
involved in Jewish history, in local and regional culture, and how
Jewish family legends were constructed and circulated. The luncheon
will take place on Monday, August 8, at 11:45 AM - 1:15 PM. There will
be time for Q & A following the presentation.

On Tuesday, August 9 >from 1:30 PM - 2:45 PM, Dr Kravtsov will present
a second talk on "Synagogues of Galicia as Cultural Heritage". From
the sixteenth century until the First World War, the construction of
synagogues in Galicia was a vibrant activity, resulting in an abundant
built heritage in a variety of types, styles and decoration. Rich in
historical and cultural significance, and in collective and personal
memories, the preservation of this heritage is a challenge to the
Galician legacy.

Dr Sergey R. Kravtsov is a Senior Research Associate at the Center for
Jewish Art, at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Born in Lviv,
Ukraine, he was trained as an architect in his native city. He
received his doctoral degree in architectural history >from the
Institute for the Theory and History of Architecture in Moscow in
1993, and moved to Israel in 1994. He has published some 60 essays on
the history of urban planning and synagogue architecture. He has also
authored and co-authored five books, edited another book, and
co-produced 16 multimedia compact discs.

The luncheon on August 8 will begin at noon and end at 1:30 pm. Entry

Seattle Conference! #romania

Rosanne Leeson
 

Dear fellow Rom-SIGgers,

The time for the Seattle Conference is drawing closer, and we are still
waiting to hear >from those of you who are planning to attend!

We have much to discuss, including the need for many volunteers to help
us to get the many hundreds and hundreds of records that we have already
acquired online on our database. Many of you are asking about specific
records, many of which we already have obtained. But without volunteers
to step up to work on them they are not available to those seeking the
information contained in them!

So, please do contact us to let us know your plans,so that we can plan
more effectively. There is much work to be done, and we need volunteers!

We will have a table at the Share Fair, on Sunday, August 7 >from
1:30-5:00 PM

Our SIG meeting is scheduled for Monday, August 8 >from 10:30-11:45 AM
And there will be a meeting of the ROM-SIG Board >from 3:00- 4:15 pm
where we hope that any of you interested in Volunteering will come and
talk with us and indicate you places, of interest, etc., and possibly
begin to make assignments.

In addition there will be two separate sessions:

1 - Monday, August 8, 1:30-2:24 PM Yitchak Kerem will speak on Sephardic
genealogy and history in Romania.

2 - Wednesday, August 10, 8:00-8:25 PM Jeffrey Gorney will speak at a
Sleepless in Seattle session on "Remembered Voices: Story-Driven
Genealogy as a Vital Path to Discovering Your Jewish Roots"- an oral
history of his visits to Romania.

We look forward to hearing >from you, and seeing you in Seattle. Just
send any information to me: <Rdleeson@...> and our research
Coordinator, Barbara Hershey at : <barbara.hershey@...>

Let's get the Rom-SIG back "On a roll!", as Bob Wascou would have said!

GESHER GALICIA LUNCHEON SPEAKER

It is with great pleasure that Gesher Galicia announces that our
luncheon speaker at the IAJGS International Conference on Jewish
Genealogy will be Dr Sergey Kravtsov, who will present a talk on
"Galician Jewish Families: Histories and Legends". Dr Kravtsov will
discuss how many prominent Galician Jewish families became deeply
involved in Jewish history, in local and regional culture, and how
Jewish family legends were constructed and circulated. The luncheon
will take place on Monday, August 8, at 11:45 AM - 1:15 PM. There will
be time for Q & A following the presentation.

On Tuesday, August 9 >from 1:30 PM - 2:45 PM, Dr Kravtsov will present
a second talk on "Synagogues of Galicia as Cultural Heritage". From
the sixteenth century until the First World War, the construction of
synagogues in Galicia was a vibrant activity, resulting in an abundant
built heritage in a variety of types, styles and decoration. Rich in
historical and cultural significance, and in collective and personal
memories, the preservation of this heritage is a challenge to the
Galician legacy.

Dr Sergey R. Kravtsov is a Senior Research Associate at the Center for
Jewish Art, at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Born in Lviv,
Ukraine, he was trained as an architect in his native city. He
received his doctoral degree in architectural history >from the
Institute for the Theory and History of Architecture in Moscow in
1993, and moved to Israel in 1994. He has published some 60 essays on
the history of urban planning and synagogue architecture. He has also
authored and co-authored five books, edited another book, and
co-produced 16 multimedia compact discs.

Searching for Death Certificate of Nicholas SARGENT in France or Switzerland #general

Mark Halpern
 

Nissim SEGALOFF, born in Bulgaria in 1896, was a world class backgammon
player >from the 1930s through the 1970s. He was living in Paris when the
Nazi's invaded and occupied France. He then took the route east through
Bulgaria, Russia, and Japan to safe haven in New York City in 1941. In
1957, Nissim became a US citizen and changed his name to Nicholas
(Nicky) SARGENT.

I contacted every backgammon association in the world and found out that
Nicholas spent the 1970s and possibly the early 1980s in France and
Switzerland earning a living playing (hustling) backgammon games. The
last sighting of Nicholas was at the Palace Hotel in Gstaad, Switzerland
in early 1979. The Palace and the city of Gstaad were contacted and
could not find any records of Nicholas.

I would appreciate people knowledgeable about these two countries
advising on how I might go about finding a death certificate, record, or
obituary for Nicholas.

Thanks for your help.

Bill Shurtleff <billshurts@...>
 

I am writing a biography of Laszlo (Ladislaus) Berczeller, a Hungarian
food physiologist who invented the world-famous Edelsoja soy flour.

Born in 1855 into a wealthy Jewish medical family, he lived and worked
in both Vienna and Germany for many years.

He died on 14 Nov. 1955 in Switzerland at age 70, alone and penniless.
I am searching for relatives or those who knew him.
