Dear Fellow Researchers:

Ukraine SIG day at the conference is Tuesday, July 25.

1. Ukraine SIG 101 - Beginning at 9:45 AM the session will guide
participants through the complexities of the SIG. This how-to-session
will focus on walking researchers through the various aspects of the SIG
and its website. Although this is a beginners session it is suitable for
all who need a refresher on using the website and other tools available
through Ukraine SIG.

2. Ukraine SIG - the next level begins at 11:15. We will discuss
additional tools and in-depth research and cover many all-important
means by which you may become involved in our SIG's process and help
your own research move along more quickly.

3. Our SIG luncheon features speaker Phyllis Berenson who will talk
about traveling in Ukraine and the two research trips she made over a
very short period. She will discuss the reason for and the scope of her
travel and realizing her goals of visiting her maternal grandmother's
town of Mogilev-Podolskiy, walking in her footsteps, and finding her
father's grave and visiting Shargorod another ancestral town. The
luncheon requires payment and registration in advance, so please make
sure that you sign up for the lunch.

4. At 2 PM, our annual SIG meeting will be held. At this meeting, we
will discuss the state of the SIG. Among other topics we will cover data
which has been included in the JewishGen databases between June 2016 and
June 2017, reports about status of the Town Leadership, the joint effort
between Family Search and Ukraine SIG to translate the 1897 census from
Odessa, recent data acquisitions and how the SIG fits into JewishGen.

In addition to these "official SIG" sessions, there are many other
sessions going on all week that include information about Ukraine, and
many sessions being presented by Ukraine SIG members.

I hope you are planning to join us in Orlando and I look forward to
seeing you there.

Janette

Mano LOFFLER from Budapest - burial and address enquiry #hungary

Yohanan
 

I am asking your help in locating the burial place of my great uncle, Mano
LOFFLER, who died in Budapest on 21st of January 1941.
I have looked at JewishGen, MACSE and in Oroklet, and found his death
registration in Familysearch
(see Viewmate http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM54681
).
But - I couldn't find his burial place;
there is a Mano LOFFLER in the list but his death year is 1913.
I am planning a visit to Budapest and would like to visit his burial place.
Any suggestion where to start from?
An interesting fact is that in the death registration his address shows as
13 Rumbach u. which is the address of the Rumbach Synagogue.
Family legend is that Mano has operated a small Synagogue >from home as of
1922, but Rumbach Synagogue is not a small family Synagogue.
Any possible explanation?

JGS of Greater Orlando Presents: "Jewish Names" with Warren Blatt #general

Lin <lin2@...>
 

Start on a family discovery journey with the Jewish Genealogical Society
of Greater Orlando (JGSGO) as it continues "My Jewish Roots" a JGSGO
Workshop Roadshow. Each participant's family discovery journey will
include directed hands-on labs that will lead to extending their family
tree -- adding newly discovered ancestors and living cousins.

The May "My Jewish Roots" workshop, "Jewish Names" is for anyone trying
to find their ancestors. Knowing all the given and surname variants for
ancestors as well as name origins and customary naming patterns is
instrumental in knowing how to search records and on-line databases
successfully. Warren Blatt, Managing Director of JewishGen, will lead
the workshop. President, Jerry Kurland, noted, "Understanding nicknames,
religious names, names in various languages, Americanization of names,
and origins of surnames can help break down those brick walls."

Warren Blatt is the Managing Director of JewishGen (www.jewishgen.org).
He is the author of Resources for Jewish Genealogy in the Boston Area
(JGS of Greater Boston, 1996) and co-author (with Gary Mokotoff) of
Getting Started in Jewish Genealogy (Avotaynu, 1999). He was the Chair
of the 15th International Seminar on Jewish Genealogy. In 2004, he was
awarded the IAJGS' Lifetime Achievement Award in Jerusalem.

"Jewish Names" with Warren Blatt will be held: Tuesday, May 2, 2017,
7:00 P.M. - 9:00 P.M. at the Roth Jewish Community Center, 851 N.
Maitland Ave., Maitland, FL. The workshop is *free* and open to the
public. Bring your own laptop to participate in the lab portion. It is
also possible to attend via the Internet. Pre-registration is required.
Pre-register for either in-person or online participation at
www.jgsgo.org/MyJewishRoots .

Please note: We are having technical difficulties with the URL for the
online version of this program. It will be working by Tuesday.

Learn about NE Ohio Jews And The Civil War at JGS Cleveland #general

Sylvia Abrams <sylvia.abrams@...>
 

Learn about NE Ohio Jews And The Civil War at JGS Cleveland

Professor Peter Haas will share his recent research on the role of
Jews >from Northeast Ohio in the Civil War at the Wednesday, May 3rd
meeting of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Cleveland.

During the Civil War, Jews participated in the War as part of the
communities in which they lived and worked, and were similarly
affected by its various aftermaths. Jews were drafted into, or
volunteered for, Ohio infantry units, fought in numerous battles, were
wounded or killed along with their gentile neighbors, and occasionally
even rose to high ranks. In contrast to Europe, the American Civil
War showed that Jews here were facing an unprecedented level of
social, political and economic openness.

Dr. Peter Haas received his B.A. >from the University of Michigan after
which he received ordination as a Reform rabbi >from Hebrew Union
College. He served as an active U.S. Army chaplain for three years,
remaining in the Army National Guard Chaplain Corps for another 19
years. Rabbi Haas earned a Ph.D. in Jewish Studies >from Brown
University. He joined the faculty at Vanderbilt University in 1980,
where he taught courses in Judaism, Jewish ethics, the Holocaust,
Western religion, and the Middle East Conflict. Dr. Haas moved to Case
Western Reserve University in 2000 and was appointed chair of the
Department of Religious Studies in 2003, a post he held until 2015; he
fully retired in the summer of 2016.

He currently volunteers as a docent for the Maltz Museum, as a
chaplain for the pastoral care department of South Pointe Hospital and
as a CASA for Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court. He prepared an article
about the Jews of Northeast Ohio during the Civil War for a
forthcoming publication of the Western Reserve Historical Society.

The Jewish Genealogy Society of Cleveland meets on the first Wednesday
evening of the month starting at 7:30 PM in the Miller Board Room at
Menorah Park, 27100 Cedar Road, Beachwood. Board members are
available at a Help Desk >from 7:00 PM to assist with individual
research questions. Guests are welcome. RSVP to:
Programming@ClevelandJGS.org.

Need donations for Oradea Burial Records Project #romania

Roger Adler
 

Dear Siggers;

Since it is spring again, we have once again started working to identify
gravestones in the Velenta Cemetery of Oradea, Romania. We have currently
photographed 175 new gravestones to be transcribed in the burial registry. More
are sure to come this summer as the weather allows. There is no more money to
pay for this work and we need more donations to fund the project. We found
gravestones that identify ancestors that were born as early as 1819. If you can
please donate.

Here's how:

Go to Homepage

Click on Donate;

in Special JewishGen Projects:

Then in Oradea, Romania ? Burial Records row type in your desired donation.

Travel to Europe from US #general

Stahl, Sheryl <sstahl@...>
 

Hi, I had a question regarding manifests.

I found my ggm on a ship manifest coming to the US in 1903, and then
again in 1909. So obviously, she had gone back to Galicia in between.
But how do I find out when that was? thanks for any hints on finding
records >from the US back to Galicia.

Thanks

Searching Grozovsky from Slutsk #general

Jerry Zevin
 

Searching the 3 sons of Gershon Grozovsky (1825-1873). Originally
from Grozovo, settled in Slutsk.
These three brothers took different surnames: Grozovsky (emigrated to
Israel), Kregstein (emigrated to NY/NJ), and Zevin (emigrated to Boston).

Any help, especially regarding the Grozovsky family in Israel, would be
most appreciated.
