Date   

JGS of Greater Boston hosts Harold Rhode November 13 #general

Ellie Goldberg
 

November 13 at 1:30 pm, Harold Rhode will give a double presentation:
"A Litvak Traces his Roots to Sicily and Ancient Israel Using Y-DNA"
and "Adventures in Baghdad 2003: Discovering Saddam Hussein's Iraqi
Jewish Archives" at Temple Emanuel, 385 Ward Street, Newton Centre, MA
02459. Admission is free for JGSGB members, $5 for non-members.
Refreshments will be served.

Main Lecture: "A Litvak Traces his Roots ..." Forty-five years of
painstaking research allowed Harold Rhode to trace his family back
2,000 years to the ancient land of Israel, Eretz Yisrael. Rhode relied
on Y-DNA analysis, documentary evidence, interviews, and family lore
to discover ancestral homes in Lithuania and Sicily. He turned up a
DNA connection to Maronite Christians in Lebanon, who have family
traditions indicating ancient Jewish ancestry, that makes a plausible
case for his family's Jewish origins in ancient Israel.

Spotlight Talk: "Adventures in Baghdad 2003: Discovering Saddam
Hussein's Iraqi Jewish Archives." During the U.S. led invasion of Iraq
in 2003, the Iraqi Jewish archives were discovered in the Baghdad
headquarters of Saddam Hussein's secret police. Hear Harold Rhode's
first-hand account of this discovery and rescue by U.S. armed forces,
and the controversy over the future of this rare collection.

Harold Rhode worked as an analyst and advisor on the Islamic world at
the Pentagon for 28 years in the Office of the Under Secretary of
Defense for Policy. He has been researching his Litvak roots even
longer! Rhode has written many articles and given many lectures
combining DNA research, archival material and family lore. He has been
active in the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Washington since
1982, and served as its President twice. Rhode has a Ph.D from
Columbia University in Islamic History.

November 13: Special Interest Group (SIG) Meetings
Pre-lecture: 12:30 pm - 1:20 pm Bessarabia, Belarus and Ukraine SIGs
Post-lecture (approx. 4:00 pm) Poland and Litvak-Baltic SIGs

For information on programs and events, special interest groups,
expert help, resources and membership go to jgsgb.org.

Re: Plipsche? #galicia

As Alexander Sharon wrote, Pilipche was once called Filipkowce. It is
listed in Gesher Galicia's Galicia Town Locator
(http://www.geshergalicia.org/galician-town-locator/) by that
Austrian-era name. As you can see in the Galicia Town Locator,
Filipkowce was in the Mielnica Jewish administrative district. Another
important source on the Gesher Galicia website -- the All Galicia
Database (http://search.geshergalicia.org) -- has 31 "hits" for
Filipkowce. Also be sure to look on JRI-Poland.org, where many
records refer to Filipkowce -- especially Mielnica records.

Bridge To Poland Trip June 4-14, 2017, Early Bird Deadline Approaching! #poland

<leorat@alumni.duke.edu > <leorat@...>
 

Dear Friends,

The Early Bird rate for the June 4-14, 2017 Bridge To Poland Trip
expires November 15, 2016.

What you'll get out of a Bridge To Poland Trip:

*Deepen your understanding of Jewish Poland - the Holocaust and
beyond.

* Meet with top scholars, guides and those doing "memory work
k."

*Connect with modern day Poles in an intimate, small group
setting and discover the heartfelt work of commemoration of Jewish
life done by non-Jews.

On the June 2017 trip we will be accompanied by Holocaust scholar
Michael Steinlauf of Gratz college. Deepen your understanding of
Jewish Poland and Polish-Jewish relations with Professor Steinlauf,
Leora Tec and Bridge To Poland.

FAQs:

Q: What is the itinerary?

A: On this trip we will spend time in Krakow, Lublin and Warsaw and
take day trips to Chmielnik and Zamoscz. For more detailed info
contact Leora Tec at: leora@bridgetopoland.com

Q: Do I have to travel with someone?

A: No. Some participants travel with a friend or family member and
some travel on their own. Bridge To Poland groups are small and no one
feels excluded.

Q: Is this a Jewish Heritage tour?

A: No. This is a trip about Jewish Poland but unlike some other trips
it is about more than the Holocaust and about more than the Jews. The
Jews lived in Poland for 1000 years and continue to live there today
and we don't ignore this fact on BTP trips. Also, Jews and non-Jews
lived together so their combined history is important. An important
focus of a Bridge To Poland trip is commemoration that non-Jewish
Poles are doing of Jewish life.

Q: I don't know if I could go to Auschwitz.

A: Sites of martyrdom are difficult and of course no one is required
to go anywhere but Bridge To Poland trips are small and intimate. I
strive to create a safe space to deal with the difficult questions we
confront on the trips.

Q: How do I prepare for the trip?

A: I prepare a carefully curated reading and viewing list. Nothing is
mandatory. You can read and watch as much or as little as you want and

JRI Poland #Poland Bridge To Poland Trip June 4-14, 2017, Early Bird Deadline Approaching! #poland

<leorat@alumni.duke.edu > <leorat@...>
 

Dear Friends,

The Early Bird rate for the June 4-14, 2017 Bridge To Poland Trip
expires November 15, 2016.

What you'll get out of a Bridge To Poland Trip:

*Deepen your understanding of Jewish Poland - the Holocaust and
beyond.

* Meet with top scholars, guides and those doing "memory work
k."

*Connect with modern day Poles in an intimate, small group
setting and discover the heartfelt work of commemoration of Jewish
life done by non-Jews.

On the June 2017 trip we will be accompanied by Holocaust scholar
Michael Steinlauf of Gratz college. Deepen your understanding of
Jewish Poland and Polish-Jewish relations with Professor Steinlauf,
Leora Tec and Bridge To Poland.

FAQs:

Q: What is the itinerary?

A: On this trip we will spend time in Krakow, Lublin and Warsaw and
take day trips to Chmielnik and Zamoscz. For more detailed info
contact Leora Tec at: leora@bridgetopoland.com

Q: Do I have to travel with someone?

A: No. Some participants travel with a friend or family member and
some travel on their own. Bridge To Poland groups are small and no one
feels excluded.

Q: Is this a Jewish Heritage tour?

A: No. This is a trip about Jewish Poland but unlike some other trips
it is about more than the Holocaust and about more than the Jews. The
Jews lived in Poland for 1000 years and continue to live there today
and we don't ignore this fact on BTP trips. Also, Jews and non-Jews
lived together so their combined history is important. An important
focus of a Bridge To Poland trip is commemoration that non-Jewish
Poles are doing of Jewish life.

Q: I don't know if I could go to Auschwitz.

A: Sites of martyrdom are difficult and of course no one is required
to go anywhere but Bridge To Poland trips are small and intimate. I
strive to create a safe space to deal with the difficult questions we
confront on the trips.

Q: How do I prepare for the trip?

A: I prepare a carefully curated reading and viewing list. Nothing is
mandatory. You can read and watch as much or as little as you want and
still have a rich and moving experience on the trip.

This list was first available in paper format ninety-two years ago,
published in a city government newsletter, then stored in shrinkwrap
and locked away in the New York City Board of Elections warehouse for
years.
This is a nice addition to the online world!

As the poster said, if nothing else it helps with one critical point for many
people .... to vote you had to prove you were a citizen either by
naturalization or birth. If your family member is there they had to be a
citizen, but if they are not there that does not mean anything more than they
did not vote in that particular cycle. I have also used voters in other ways
... see below.

It helps to know where the people lived because this version is organized by
Assembly District and Election District and address. You can try using 1925
NY State Census AD/ED numbers for your family, but I tried for one of mine
and it appears that the districts had been at least partially reorganized
between 1924 and 1925.

It also appears that this database will let you search by street name if you
know what street your family lived on. But for example my family was on South
2nd Street and I had to play with the variations in the search feature to find
it. Some South addresses were in a SO and some as S and 2nd was in mostly
(when it was found) as 2D. Don't search individual house numbers because if
your family did not vote you will not find it if they were in a single family
address. Get to the street and fiddle to find the right numbers and see if
they are there. Also the way the data was formatted typing for example 168
South 2nd Street would get nothing because the street is separated >from the
house number.

Also New York City voters records are available >from the late 1800s forward
at the NY Public Library. They have them on microfilm by year with a gap
which if I recall is right around 1905 which is very inconvenient because of
the 1905 NYC Census.

The printed records, like the one that was just scanned, also exist at the
New York City, City Hall Library (same building one room over >from the the
Municipal Archives). I was able to see the original paper and work with it
at the Library but as I recall it requires an advance request and they try to
be cautious since it is the original paper not microfilm. It was bound into
books and as I recall was actually alphabetical at least for the years I was
looking at sorted by the AD and ED.

In addition to searching to see if your family exercised their civic duty
(voted) and using that to confirm that they were citizens I have used voters
rolls as a tool of last resort to locate people in the NY Census. This only
works if they were citizens and voting but one of my great great uncles was
a judge and assembly man in New York so I knew the family would be voting for
him. I got the voter's roles for 1094-1905 and earlier and I searched to find
the family without knowing their address or AD/ED numbers. I knew what area
of Manhattan they lived it and >from a general knowledge of Manhattan, or with
a little research of streets, you can figure out which AD/EDs to look at. I
worked through them and sure enough I found the family and using the AD/ED
and address worked backwards to the 1905 Census to find them and then I also
used earlier records and was even able to find the family in the 1890 Police
Census... the earliest official record of my great great grandmother in
America!

Happy hunting ... and always I am happy to answer questions about NYC records
and research.
