Date   

Still time to register for the IAJGS conference Aug 7-12 #austria-czech

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

The annual IAJGS conference has become more of than just your run of the
mill conference. There are no longer merely lectures and workshops.
There are:
- Up to seven concurrent lectures and workshops during each time period
- A track on "Genealogy for Jewish Educators"
- Computer Workshops
- Special Interest Group Luncheons
- Gala Banquet
- Vendor exhibits
- The play, >from Door to Door, by the Seattle Jewish Theater Company.
- Film Festival
- Pre- and post-conference cruises
- Tours during the conference

Events stretch >from 7:30am to at least 10:00pm. There is a morning
minyan (religious service) at 7:10. It is truly an international
conference because there will be attendees >from more than 20 countries.
In addition, it is becoming more common for lecturers to be >from outside
the U.S.

Finally, if you cannot attend, but wish you could, there is LIVE!! This
allows the subscriber to watch some of the best programs on his/her
computer, tablet, or smartphone. LIVE! is, as the name suggests, live
streaming, but it is also available to subscribers for 90 days after the
end of the conference, "on-demand".

If you cannot make this year's conference, plan to attend the one next
year which will be in Orlando, Florida, July 23 - 28, 2017. It can
include pre- or post-conference visits to Disneyworld, which is just a
few miles away.

The conference website is at http://www.iajgs2016.org. Registration is
being accepted on-line until July 24. After July 24, if you'd like to
attend, you can register at the door.

See you in Seattle!

ViewMate translation request German - Peter Reinitz house in Hranice #austria-czech

omri@...
 

Dear Group,

I have posted two documents found in the "Book of Homes" >from Hranice in
Moravia (available on Familysearch.org), which I think show Peter Reinitz
my GGGGF owning or selling a house. I would appreciate having a translation
or knowing any details about Peter Reinitz, his house transaction and his
relations with the Wolf family (which also shows up a lot in my research)
The Viewmate links are:

Dear Genners,

Researching in the Index of Jewish records of Burgenland, Austria, between
1832 and 1895 in GenTeam, I came across EDEL Regina a widow who died in
Eisenstadt in December 24th 1860 at the age of 83.
My GGGGM was regina EDEL who married my GGGGF Peter Jozsef Reinitz. They
lived in Nagykanizsa but in 1822 Regina lived in Kismarton/Eisestadt and
afterwards in Vienna.

I could not find records of the residents of Kismarton in 1822. Can anyone
help?

Thank you,

Re: Russian West Point and Medals?? #general

Igor Holyboroda
 

Hello!
Earlier the case was discussed:
"His grandchildren said he trained in the "Russian West Point" and that he was
highly decorated, and particularly remember seeing a large gold medal. My
question is, what could this "Russian West Point" be, and what might he have
done to get a large gold medal?

Gadalia ZAMALIN's grandson said that he was in the military working as a
scribe (yes, it does seem like the typical tale), when edicts were passed and
he lost everything, including his job and pension."

In the response to this post it was explained:
"Russian "West Point" was known as Imperial Nicolas Military Academy. Since
Academy trained Imperial Russian Army officers with higher military education
and military land surveyors"

This explanation may make sense - the best graduating students of Russian Mil
Academies could have been awarded by the (big/small) golden medals.

At the same time there are some contradictions in all this story making it
legendary:
1. As a rule military scribe could not have the officer's rank, in particular
in the (Russian) Army.
2. A (religious) Jew could not have been the Imperial Russian Army officer,
especially the student of the elite military Academy for the best army
professionals already having the officer's rank. In given case it was
theoretically possible only for the person baptized (into the Russian Orthodox
church).

I think that the person in question may really have been serving as a scribe
(probably non-commissioned officer) in a mil academy having a numerous stuff.
As a successful professional in his sphere he may have got some award (the
Russian award possible in given case may be researched separately). Other
possibilities (his officer's rank and especially the studies in the Imperial
Russian elite mil educational institution) in given case are supposed to be
practically impossible.

Igor Holyboroda,

I am very pleased to announce that JRI-Poland has just acquired more
vital records >from the Tarnow branch of the Polish State Archives from
the town of Dabrowa Tarnowska.

Our index of Dabrowa PSA data, which previously covered Births in years
up through 1913, has now been extended to the new limit of the recent
Polish privacy law changes. For the first time we have Marriage and
Death records >from this town, since no records of these types seem to
have survived >from the earlier years. JRI-Poland now has the index of
surviving records of those types up through 1935, and has also acquired
one more year of Births, >from 1915. This update adds about 1500 new
vital records >from Dabrowa Tarnowska.

While not every year is present in this new data, many are:
Births: 1915
Marriages: 1915-1918, 1920-1935
Deaths: 1916-1917, 1919-1920, 1922, 1925-1926, 1929-1931, 1935
The missing years of Death records are not known to exist at this time;
The 1919 Marriages do exist, but are located in another archive branch.

Until JRI-Poland recovers the cost we have spent to acquire these
records this new data will not be available online. However, those who
make qualified contributions will get access to this data right away.

This is a new Dabrowa Tarnowska PSA Project (B 1915, MD 1915-1935).
The Qualifying Contribution required to access the data before it has
been fully funded (and becomes available online) is $75.

You can see our project status online:

Information about various ways of contributing can be found at:

Please indicate the allocation of your contribution as
"Dabrowa Tarnowska PSA".

Please contact me if you would like to know if a (short) list of your
specific family members are present in this new data.
