Final word from the Seattle 2016 Conference #warsaw #poland

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

If you attended the Conference, did you get to every session you wanted
to see? Did you hear buzz about sessions you wish you had been to? What
about the one that created an Aha! moment you want to recapture (like
Devin Naar's keynote or Judy Russell's banquet talk)?

You still can subscribe to the LIVE! on-demand service that will let you
watch many of the best sessions of the past week after you get home. You
can subscribe on line, for 90 days of on-demand viewing for $179.
On-demand viewing is good through 12 November 2016

To subscribe, go to the Attendee Service Center, log in, select Buy
LIVE!, Edit your account, and click Continue to the page with the LIVE!
Full Add On check box. Check it and continue to the confirmation and
payment pages. The Attendee Service Center will remain open next week,
but don't procrastinate, because we will have to close it soon.

For those who did not register for the Conference, please give us a
chance to regroup for a couple of days. Then, beginning 15 August, go
to the New Registration page at
https://s4.goeshow.com/iajgs/annual/2016/registration_form.cfm
We don't know how long we can keep that page open, so please do it
before August 19.

JGS NY Meeting Sunday, September 18 at 2 PM
at the Museum of Jewish Heritage, 36 Battery Place, NY

"DNA.Land and Genetic Genealogy: a Path for "Tikkun Olam" by Citizen Scientists"
Presented by Yaniv Erlich, PhD

DNA.Land is a not-for-profit online platform, developed by scientists at the New
York Genome Center and Columbia University, offering cutting-edge tools to
analyze genomic information. Anyone who has done autosomal DNA testing with the
three major companies 23andMe, Family Tree DNA or AncestryDNA, for example, can
upload their existing genomic data to learn about their ancestry and receive a
relative finder report. In addition, users can decide whether to contribute
their information for scientific research, while preserving their privacy
choices.

Dr. Yaniv Erlich will describe his studies with massive genetic genealogy
datasets and present the functionality of DNA.Land and its impact on users and
biomedical research.

Dr. Erlich is a Core Member at the New York Genome Center and Assistant
Professor of Computer Science and Computational Biology at Columbia University.
Previously he was a Principal Investigator at the Whitehead Institute at MIT.
The recipient of numerous awards, Dr. Erlich is a graduate of Tel-Aviv
University, and holds a PhD >from the Watson School of Biological Sciences at
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.

This event is co-sponsored by JewishGen.org

Lists of Rabbis? #general

Judith Singer
 

Is anyone aware of any reference works where I could find the names of
rabbis for various towns in Austria-Hungary? Specifically, I am
interested in late 18th-century and 19th century rabbis in the towns
of Mosciska, Przemysl, and Jaworow, located in Galicia, Austro-Hungarian
Empire, before World War II.

Thank you -

Judith Singer

Please help to identify and possibly translate #general

I've posted a picture on Viewmate --

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM50199

of an apron purchased in Instanbul, Turkey, ca. 1905, for a young
teen-age girl. Around the perimeter of the garment there appears to be
some script -- old Turkish, Arabic, or possible just some decorative
embellishments. Need some help in identifying the type/occasion of
garment and the possible script/translation around its edges.

Please reply on Viewmate.

Thank you.

Vysotsky in Bobruisk #belarus

Linda Kelley
 

Our family genealogists believe that our Na'az Zvie/Girsh Berezkin, b.
about 1799, son of Noson, had a first wife who was related to Kalman
Wolf Wissotzky, the tea dealer. Girsh's sons were in the tea business,
and an article in an Israeli magazine mentions a marriage to a Mr.
Bereskin. The article implied that one of Kalman's daughters married a
Mr. Bereskin, but that doesn't fit with my Girsh and Freyda. Still,
it's a possible clue that someone in Kalman's family married a
Bereskin.

The 1858 Revision List has Girsh married to Freyda, daughter of Dovid.
Freyda was born between 1800-9 and probably died before 1862. Her
father, Dovid, was probably born before about 1780-89.

Kalman Wolf Wissotzky lived 1824-1904. One of his sons was named David
1861-1930.
GENI says Kalman's father was Yaakov, son of Rephoel, son of Aryeh.

Girsh and Freyda had at least the following children:
Nisan or Nathan Bereskin 1820
Yudka Berezkin 1834
Sarah or Khaya Sora Berezkin 1840
Itka Berezkin 1841
Aaron Bereskin 1848

Girsh's second wife was Fannie Chen. They had Meyer in 1862 and Adolf in
1866.

It's possible the Berezkins lived in Chernigov area of Ukraine before
they came to Bobruisk. There were Visotskys in Bobruisk in 1858:

VYSOTSKY Vulf, son of Mendel, age 30
VYSOTSKY Meylakh Mendel brother, possibly 21 in 1858
recruited in 1854
VYSOTSKY Tema, daughter of Evsey wife of Vulf, age 30

So Vulf was probably born about 1828, and Mendel was probably born before
1808.
Kalman, the tea dealer, was living in Moscow in 1858.

Does anyone have Dovid Vysotsky and his daughter, Freyda Vysotsky Berezkin?

Thank you very much!
