This Shabbat morning, the Tree of Life * Or L'Simcha Congregation
suffered an anti-Semitic act of terror in which eleven people were
murdered, and many more people were hurt in ways apparent and deep.

The community of JewishGen and the Museum of Jewish Heritage -- A

support to those hurt and grieving and wish a full recovery for those
congregants and police officers injured.

We stand by a Jewish community whose sense of security was shattered

1. Question re: Immigration Ports of Entry


----------------------------------------------------------------------


Subject: Question re: Immigration Ports of Entry

From: David Osachy <osachy@gmail.com>

Date: Sat, 20 Oct 2018 16:56:09 -0400

X-Message-Number: 1


Hi Everyone,


Can anyone explain (or offer a theory) why a Romanian Jewish immigrant coming

from Europe in 1903, whose final destination was New York City or
Pittsburgh, would disembark at the port of St. John in New Brunswick,

Canada, then travel overland through Quebec and enter the United

States at St. Albans, Vermont?


What could that strange route be about? Why not go straight to Ellis

Island? Was this an issue of money, paperwork, or perhaps something

else? If it helps, the ship was the Lake Megantic, which I am

guessing sailed >from Liverpool though I am not sure.


Thank you in advance,


Rabbi David Osachy

Jacksonville, Florida

Board for Certification of Genealogists Adopts Standards for DNA Evidence #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Board for Genealogists (BCG) adopted standards for DNA evidence on
October 21, 2018. This includes five modified and seven new standards
relating to the use of DNA evidence in genealogical work. They also updated
the Genealogist's Code to address the protection of people who provide DNA
samples. Earlier this year there was a public comment period. The BCG
believes "all genealogists need to make sound decisions when DNA can or
should be used and any work products that incorporate it should meet the new
standards and ethical provisions."

The BCG will be incorporating a new chapter, Standards for Using DNA
Evidence, into their Genealogy Standards book. The new book is expected in
March 2019. Therefore, what is currently available in the BCG blog post,
https://bcgcertification.org/standards-for-dna-evidence/ is a summary of
each area as not to conflict with the publisher's rights of their updated
version.

I have no affiliation with the BCG and am reporting on the new standards for
the interest of the reader.

1907's Duma Voters Lists vs 1912's #general

Shlomo Gurevich
 

Comparing recently obtained Mogilev gubernia's 1907 Duma Voters Lists
with 1912's, I found out that the both of them contain approximately
the same number of records and the same level of representation of
Jewish population.

On the other hand, though the time interval between them is relatively
small, substantial number of names is present on one of them and absent
on the other. In some cases there is difference in details such as
spelling, a second name, a patronym, place of residence, property value,
etc. I luckily discovered the patronym of my Great Grandfather Girsh
Wolfson >from Monastyrshchina which was not present on 1912's lists.

The full article as well as both 1907's and 1912's lists of Chislavichi
Jewish voters can be found at "Jewish Chislavichi" website at

JewishGen Mourns with the Community #hungary

More light. More life.

These are the words borne on the emblem of the Tree of Life * Or
L'Simcha Congregation in Pittsburgh, PA. They stand for that Jewish
community's daily mission and work, mode of worship, hope for the
world, and rallying cry.

This Shabbat morning, the Tree of Life * Or L'Simcha Congregation
suffered an anti-Semitic act of terror in which eleven people were
murdered, and many more people were hurt in ways apparent and deep.

The community of JewishGen and the Museum of Jewish Heritage -- A
Living Memorial to the Holocaust mourn those who were lost. We offer
support to those hurt and grieving and wish a full recovery for those
congregants and police officers injured.

We stand by a Jewish community whose sense of security was shattered

Life * Or L'Simcha Congregation itself. May these words guide all of
us in our responsibility to repair our world. More light. More life.

Help needed - Gitelman & Schwartzenberg Family in France #france

ancesthntr@...
 

To the French SIG list:

I have 2 different Gitelman branches of my family that lived (or still live) in France.

First, Wolf Bernard Gitelman, who was born in Biala Podlaska, Poland on June 3, 1891.
He became a US citizen during World War I, but traveled to and >from France frequently.

He died in Paris on December 19, 1955, and is buried there.

His father was named Abraham.

I am searching for 2 things:

FIRST, family descended >from or related to him.

SECOND, if anyone is in or near Paris and can take a photograph of his grave, that would be GREATLY appreciated.

Here is the information about his grave:
Cimetiere de Bagneux, Bagneux, Departement des Hauts-de-Seine, Ile-de-France, France, Plot No. 52, P. 1946.

The second branch of the family is descended >from a man born in Poland, whose name I do not know.

He would have been born in the years >from approximately 1880-1895.

He had a daughter named Simon (Simone?), who married Andre Schwartenberg (1906-1995). I do not have her birth or death dates.

I am VERY interested in finding out who her father was, as well as the birth and death dates, which should both naturally be listed on her gravestone.

She was buried in Cimetiere de Montparnasse in Paris, Ile-de-France, in the 24eme division, Famille Schwartzenberg.

Again, I would GREATLY appreciate it if anyone could refer me to family, and/or obtain a photograph of Simon92s grave.

Please note that I believe that Simon had 3 children, all of whom are probably still living:
Monique, Danielle and Roger-Gerard (who is a French politician born in 1943).

Thank you or merci beaucoup!

BialyGen: Bialystok Region #Bialystok #Poland JewishGen Mourns with the Community #poland

More light. More life.

These are the words borne on the emblem of the Tree of Life * Or
L'Simcha Congregation in Pittsburgh, PA. They stand for that Jewish
community's daily mission and work, mode of worship, hope for the
world, and rallying cry.

This Shabbat morning, the Tree of Life * Or L'Simcha Congregation
suffered an anti-Semitic act of terror in which eleven people were
murdered, and many more people were hurt in ways apparent and deep.

The community of JewishGen and the Museum of Jewish Heritage -- A
Living Memorial to the Holocaust mourn those who were lost. We offer
support to those hurt and grieving and wish a full recovery for those
congregants and police officers injured.

We stand by a Jewish community whose sense of security was shattered
in a sacred space. In doing this, we take up the words of the Tree of
Life * Or L'Simcha Congregation itself. May these words guide all of
us in our responsibility to repair our world. More light. More life.
