Subject: An Outstanding Salt Lake City Conference
From: <MRNatchez@aol.com>
Date: 7/24/00 11:55 PM Central Daylight Time

Genealogists Meet in Salt Lake City to Explore Their Jewish Heritage

Over 620 genealogists >from around the globe gathered in Salt Lake City
on
July 9-14, 2000 for the International Association of Jewish Genealogical

Societies' 20th International Conference on Jewish Genealogy.
Representatives >from over 50 Jewish genealogical societies attended.

The LDS Family History Library retains the largest amount of Jewish
records
on microfilm in the world. On behalf of the Genealogical Society of
Utah,
Richard E. Turley, Jr., Director of the Family History Department, and
Nancy
Goodstein, a volunteer at the Family History Library, presented a gift
of the
multi-volume "Jewish Records in the Family History Library" index and
CD-ROM
to the Association. Additionally, participants had access to a special
index
of microfilms of Jewish vital records at the Lithuanian archives, an
exciting
new finding aid.

Outstanding programs featured notable speakers, including Alexander
Abraham,
Director of Yad Vashem in Israel; Alexandre Beider, author and
specialist in
the field of Ashkenazic names; Angelika Ellmann-Krueger, German research

specialist, Dr. Michael Hammer, a geneticist noted for his work on the
kohanim gene; Regina Kopilevich, a Lithuanian researcher; Marian Smith,
Historian for the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service; and
Vladislav
Soshnikov, Director of the Russian-American Genealogical Archival
Service,
among others. Banquet speakers, Eileen Douglas and Ron Steinman,
presented a
portion of their upcoming film, "My Grandfather's House," a documentary
about
Ms. Douglas' research that guided her back to her grandfather's Eastern
European origins.

Researchers enjoyed special "Breakfast With Experts" sessions and small
group
tutorials designed to facilitate a productive interchange of research
tips on
a variety of topics. Twenty special interest groups, focused on the
study of
specific family surnames or research of a certain geographical area,
provided
networking sessions to exchange new information of interest to
genealogists.
These included researchers interested in South Africa, Sephardic
genealogy,
Latvia, Rzeszow, Grodno, Polonnye Uezd, Nesivizh, Denmark, South Africa,

Bohemia, Lodz, Belarus, Galicia, Germany, Romania, Litvak research,
Hungary,
Suchostav Region, Kolbuszowa Region and the Mirvis family surname.

"The astute planning, great programming, and excellent managing of the
IAJGS
20th International Conference on Jewish Genealogy really paid
dividends,"
stated Howard Margol of Atlanta, Georgia, president of IAJGS. "Without
a
doubt, the conference was the friendliest on record. Sufficient time was

allowed to enable the attendees to do lots of networking, renew old
acquaintances, and make new contacts and friends. All in all, every
aspect of
the conference was simply outstanding."

The International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies' 21st
International Conference on Jewish Genealogy will be hosted by the
Jewish
Genealogical Society of Great Britain, on July 8-13, 2001 in London,
England.
In 2002, the Jewish Genealogical Society of Michigan will host the
Conference in Dearborn, Michigan. In 2003, the Jewish Genealogical
Society of
Greater Washington will host the Conference in Washington, D.C.

standards we should all adhere to as family researchers.

Genealogical Standards and Guidelines

Standards for Sharing Information with Others
Recommended by the National Genealogical Society

Conscious of the fact that sharing information or data with others,
whether through speech, documents or electronic media, is essential to
family history research and that it needs continuing support and
encouragement, responsible family historians consistently respect the
restrictions on sharing information that arise >from the rights of
another as an author, originator or compiler; as a living private
person; or as a party to a mutual agreement;

observe meticulously the legal rights of copyright owners, copying or
distributing any part of their works only with their permission, or
to the limited extent specifically allowed under the law's "fair use"
exceptions;

identify the sources for all ideas, information and data >from others,
and the form in which they were received, recognizing that the
unattributed
use of another's intellectual work is plagiarism;

respect the authorship rights of senders of letters, electronic mail and

data files, forwarding or disseminating them further only with the
sender's permission;

inform people who provide information about their families as to the
ways it may be used, observing any conditions they impose and respecting

any reservations they may express regarding the use of particular items;


require some evidence of consent before assuming that living people are
agreeable to further sharing of information about themselves;

convey personal identifying information about living people--like age,
home address, occupation or activities--only in ways that those
concerned
have expressly agreed to;

recognize that legal rights of privacy may limit the extent to which
information >from publicly available sources may be further used,
disseminated or published;

communicate no information to others that is known to be false, or
without making reasonable efforts to determine its truth, particularly
information that may be derogatory;

are sensitive to the hurt that revelations of criminal, immoral, bizarre

or irresponsible behavior may bring to family members.

Dear Bertha,
Welcome indeed!
After looking through my info, the best I can find so far is the following.
R' Hersh Mylech Spira had a daughter Beila, who was first married to R'
Nechemia, son of Tzvi. He drowned in a river during his father-in-law's
lifetime. Beila subsequently married R' Shimon Yeshaya Reich, ABD Ludomir.
She had one known child >from each spouse. The child >from Nechemia was
Mechla , married Levi Yitzchok. They had 1 known child:Michal Weinberg .
See this info at
http://www.ics.uci.edu/~dan/genealogy/Miller/spira/bny-yscr.htm#L3.2

Can you provide some more background on your own ancestry. What is the
lineage between yourself and R. Nechemia Weinberger?

Does anyone else come >from the Langsam/Spira/Miller/Eckstein tree? The
roots are primarliy Galician and northern Slovakia in the first half of the
1800's

Sejm voter registration #galicia

IsraelP <zach4v6@...>
 

The 1934 Sejm voter registration list for Lwow does
not include certain adults who we know lived in Lwow
for some years before that but were born elsewhere
in East Galicia (such as Tarnopol). In other words,
they should definitely have been eligible to vote,
but would they have been registered someplace they
hadn't lived for years?

I'm currently reading Artur Rubinstein's "My Early Years," what a lovely
man, wonderful book. I recommend it for getting a picture of Poland
(the big cities, including Lwow, Krakow) at the turn of the last century.

Dear Bertha

Wellcome to the club of descendants of R' Zvi Elimelech SPIRA (was LANGSAM)
from Dynov, called the Bnej Jisass'char, after his most famous book (I am
not one of his descendants, but my wife and our children are).

The best place to look for this family is the website of Moishe Miller
(descendant of a brother of R' Zvi Elimelech miDynov): www.langsam.com

Checking the website I could not find anything about your Weinberger family.
Louis Schonfeld, also a descendant of the Dynover Rebbe) has Weinbergers in
his family tree
(http://www.familytreemaker.com/users/s/c/h/Louis-Schonfeld/tree1.html), but
they don't fit to your informations.

I would be much interested in the actual text on the gravestone. Is it in
Hebrew? How is the connection described exactly?

I found out about the connection of my family with the Dynover Rebbe by an
obituary of her grandfather, where it said: "He was a grandson of the
Dynover Rebbe". After many years of complicated research I found out that he
was not a grandson, but a greatgreatgrandson! Things are even more
complicated because one of the Dynover's granddaughters (my wife's ancestor)
married the widower of her aunt (the Dynover's daughter). (see details on
Moishe Miller's website:
http://www.ics.uci.edu/~dan/genealogy/Miller/spira/uri.htm)

Success - All Latvia Database - Sternberg #latvia

JKaye29064@...
 

from my great-grandfather Jacob Sternberg's death certificate (1925), I knew
that my great-great-grandparents were Meyer and Pauline Sternberg. I also
knew >from my father's cousin that the family was >from Piltene, Latvia, in the
Courland region. In the 1871 list on the new All Latvia Database, I found
Meyer Sternberg and his wife Pesse, >from Piltene. I'm sure that's the right
listing, as my grandmother's sister Pauline, who must have been named after
the Pesse on the list, has the Hebrew name Pesse on her tombstone. The 1871
list indicates that Meyer's father, Salomon, born in 1793, was alive at the
time. Salomon's listing indicates his father's name as Laser. So, I can now
go back into the late 1700s, to a great-great-great-great grandfather. My
great-grandparents are buried in the plot of the Courland Young Men's
Benevolent Society (I may not have the exact name of the group) in Mt. Carmel
Cemetery near the Queens/Brooklyn border; that group has a newer, and
flatter, I might add, plot (where, incidentally, comedian Henny Youngman is
buried) at New Mt. Carmel Cemetery nearby. I am also researching my
great-grandmother's family, Lewis, which may have been Lowius, >from that area
as well. Other relatives >from the area include the Schatz and Wolfson
families. Some of these families all have branches in South Africa as well. I
call this a success story. Thank you. Jim Kaye. JKaye29064@aol.com
