This summer, I will be attending the IAJGS Conference in Seattle, WA, August 7-12, 2016
Usually, you are used to reading my posts on various topics
on the Jewish Genealogy Facebook Pages, the JewishGen digests or the JewishGen Blog.
Now, you will have the opportunity to see my posts for the duration of the Conference ONLY
on the JewishGen Facebook Page which you should and sign up for.

For those of you who are attendees at the Conference, you may see me at a session, perhaps
in the resource room, at a lab, or a luncheon or a social e=
vent. I will try and cover a bit of it all. So, if you recognize me, please do stop and say hello.
Tell me what you are doing and what you are learning and what brick walls you are trying to
break down.

If you are unable to attend the Conference, be sure to look at the JewishGen Facebook
Page as I will be posting there once a day. Also, remember to get LIVE
to see gavel-to-gavel coverage of the sessions.
In this way, you will be able to keep up with what is happening at the Conference.

I am looking forward to interacting with you all and learning a lot
at the Conference. See you soon!!!

The Center for Urban History of East Central Europe in Lviv, with whom
Gesher Galicia has close relations, has written to us about the
opening of a launch in Lviv, on September 4, 2016, of the Space of
Synagogues project.

At the opening of this memorial, a visual installation, "The Art of

was one of the centers of Jewish religious life in the city, and was
destroyed during the Holocaust.

The Center for Urban History has appealed to our readers for any
objects or photos bringing back memories of former Jewish life in Lviv
(Lwow, Lemberg) or for particular stories or memories they would like
to share. Any such items should kindly be sent, with descriptions, to
Natalia Yeromenko at <n.yeromenko@lvivcenter.org>.

The deadline for receiving these digital items is August 8, 2016,
because of the time needed to prepare the the launch. Items submitted
can include images of:
- relatives and ancestors >from or connected with Lwow;
- objects that recall family >from Lwow;
- trips to Lwow and places there connected with family members;
- images of descendants of Jewish families >from Galicia.
Images sent should be between 500 Kb and 1 Mb in size and in jpg/jpeg,

Wording in Birth, Death, & Marriage Records #general

Alan Seid
 

Dear Group,

I would like to understand the usage of the Latin words "recte" and
"false" in Birth, Death, & Marriage records. The Latin words are used
between surnames.

Definations:
recte means correctly
false means wrongly

Birth record example:
Elukim SEIDENWERK born 16 Apr 1895 at Zloczow
German:
Bekenne mich zur Vaterschaft Hersch Leib Dimant false Seidenwerk als Zeuge
Leon Warschitz
Translation:
I declare to be the father Hersch Leib Dimant wrongly Seidenwerk as witness
Leon Warschitz

In the above example the Latin word "false" is used between two surnames
"DIMANT" and "SEIDENWERK"

Thank you
Alan Seid

Re: Help needed: STOLOFF and BELZIN (Lithuania) and SPECTOR (Ukraine) #general

Shelley Mitchell
 

Simon Wittaker requested suggestions. Here are mine:

First suggestion: when you go to Jewishgen databases, don't limit
yourself to where your grandparents said they were from.

My grandfather said he was >from Kiev and my grandmother said she was
from Odessa. Wrong. They were just naming major cities. Turned out my
grandfather was >from what is now Moldavia and my grandmother lived in a
small town in Podolsk not far >from Odessa. But now that boundaries have
changed, I had to look for my grandmother in the Ukraine. The capital of
Ukraine is Kiev and for years I was lost looking for my grandfather there.

Second suggestion: the ship manifests >from Russia should say who they
left behind and what town that person was in. Some might indicate the
town they departed from; not their home town. I don't know what the
British version of those manifests would say.

Good Luck.
