ViewMate translation request - Ukrainian #general

Deborah Schultz
 

Hello. I've posted 4 items for which I need a translation >from Ukrainian (as
I assume they are). They are on ViewMate at the following addresses:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM68252
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM68254
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM68255
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM68256

All of these are >from a collection of photos taken at a private memorial
service in or near the old Jewish cemetery in Kalush, Ukraine. The photos
might be >from 1965.
One is a clip >from a photo, of the inscription on what appears to be a
memorial stone monument. I believe it commemorates a Nazi-era massacre
that occurred in 1942.
The rest are of notes on the backs of photos. I believe they describe
or else commemorate the same massacre. (Some of these notes also
included a line in Hebrew, not included here, which I was able to
translate myself.)

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

I appreciate any help offered.

Thank you very much!

Izzy MUHLSTOCK-MILLS Mystery #general

Shirley Brodt
 

I've recently discovered American relatives of my paternal grandfather, Chaskel
(Yechezkiel) MUHLSTOCK (born 1885 and came to the U.S. >from Poland or Austria
in 1939), who was a son of Abraham Muhlstock (born circa 1863) and Rachel DUR.

One of the offspring of these relatives wrote that Chaskel was one of three
siblings: Mina Muhlstock (born 1893), who married Samuel Schwartz; Rosa
Muhlstock (born 1902), who married Markus Mautner and then Isadore Frumkin
(I've found and received information on both of these siblings); and Izzy
Muhlstock.

One relative wrote that Izzy (or Isie) was a woman who married Stanley Mills.
Another relative wrote that Izzy was a man, who turned away >from being
religious and might have fought in the Spanish Civil War.

Try as I might, I can find no information on Izzy. His or her birth date would
have been around the dates of his/her other siblings. There are entries for an
Isie or Isaac Muhlstock, born 1876, but that can't be the person I'm searching
for, as that date would mean that Abraham would have been about 13 years old
when Izzy was born.

On the WieWasWie website, I found information on an Isaac Muhlstock, born 1894,
which would fit, and also a U.S. Border Crossings >from Canada to the U.S. list,
in which his father's name is listed as Abraham.

Any help you could offer as to how to proceed with my research would be greatly
appreciated.

JGS of Maryland June 24 program #general

Susan Steeble
 

Jewish Genealogy Society of Maryland

Speaker: Tammy Hepps
Title: "Technology for Cousin Bait That Works"
Date and Time: Sunday, June 24, 2018, 1:30 p.m.
Location: Pikesville Library's meeting room, 1301 Reisterstown Rd,
Pikesville, MD

Please join us on Sunday, June 24, 2018, to hear Tammy Hepps present
"Technology for Cousin Bait That Works."

Cousin bait is the public information trail you leave for people
researching the same ancestors as you to find you. Making connections
to fellow researchers is every genealogist's dream, not only because
it gives you a research buddy, but also because each new buddy can
provide you with information you may have never found otherwise. But
in the Internet age, creating that trail means understanding how
search engines work. Content that may seem intriguing to you as a
genealogist may fail to meet the criteria of content search engines.
This talk will begin with a basic introduction to SEO, search engine
optimization, to demonstrate the qualities your digital cousin bait
will need to have. The bulk of the talk will cover specific examples
from different, popular techniques for posting content online to
evaluate the likelihood of their making your content findable.
Finally, safety considerations around making your content findable
will be discussed.

Tammy A. Hepps is a technologist, genealogist, and storyteller. The
creator of Treelines.com, a family story-sharing website and winner of
the RootsTech Developer Challenge, she lectures internationally about
combining creative research, cutting-edge technology, and meaningful
storytelling to make family history more engaging. She is also
conducting original research into the Jewish community of Homestead,
PA, once the leading steel town in the United States. Professionally,
she has nearly two decades of experience managing the entire product
and software development life cycles in a diverse range of industries
for companies ranging >from early-stage startups to Fortune 500
corporations.

The program is free for paid members and $5 for non-members (applied
to membership fee when a visitor joins JGSMD) after their first
meeting. Refreshments will be available. Please check our web site at
www.jgsmd.org for late updates and for the time, location, and program
of future meetings.
