Vitaly Charney article on Minsk budget #belarus

Nordell, Larry <lnordell@...>
 

I was fascinated by Vitaly Charney's article on the Minsk 1877 budget, =
for what it showed about the things the city was doing that are similar =
and those things very different than what we expect >from a municipal =
government today. It was interesting that almost a quarter of their =
budget was related to housing military!

I dug around on the internet and found that the ruble was then worth 18 =
grams of silver, and in 1877 the average price of silver in the US was =
$1.212. At 28 grams/ounce, that translates into 1 Ruble =3D $0.63, so =
the total budget was about $67,000. The inflation index (GDP deflator) =
from 1877 to 2005 is 17.92, making the budget approximately $1.2 million =
in current purchasing power.

The generosity of others #general

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

Greetings,

I hadn't mentioned this when I posted the announcement yesterday about my
latest virtual (online) exhibition "Windows in Time," but the exhibition
could not have been created without the generosity and hard work of Merle
Kastner of Montreal, Canada. It was her grandfather Henry Nathanson who took
these some one-hundred and forty photographs during his travels of Europe
and the Middle East in 1913. It took a great deal of time to search for,
organize and scan these many photographs and I am grateful to Merle for her
efforts.
I must say this to all of you who have so far contributed material to my
virtual museum. Without your desire to honor and perpetuate the memories of
your ancestors, it would not have been possible for me to create and develop
my website to the point where it is today. I am grateful to you all. Thank
you so much.

Best regards,

Dr. Ralph Bloch to speak on mohel book from Huerben in Bavarian Swabia #germany

HJB <hjb@...>
 

Jewish genealogists have access to few primary genealogical sources. Where
they do exist, Mohel Books - or circumcision registries - provide a valuable
window into the fabric of Jewish society in times past.

Unfortunately, few Mohel Books have survived the Holocaust, and even fewer
are publicly available. Obviously, they only list male children.

For the rural community of Huerben in Bavarian Swabia, Germany, the
transcript of a Mohel Book covering the period >from 1800 to 1837 is
available at the Leo Baeck Institute Archives in New York.

Ralph Bloch will describe what he found while he worked his way through
this document.

Re: More information on new Gedenkbuch #germany

In this day and age, it is surprising that the Gedenkbuch would be
published in print, rather than on the internet. I hope this new
information will be made available online, at least as an addition to
the Yad vaShem database. Best regards,

CWITAWA? #poland

Nigel Wilson <wilsonettes@...>
 

Help please -

I have recently found an Ellis Island record for a husband and wife who
claim they came >from Cwitawa Poland, on the actual shipping manifest it
says Petkamien/Patkemien.

Searching Shtetl Seeker I cannot connect the two places - any ideas?

Perhaps Podkamien?

I am stumped.

Any suggestions gratefully appreciated.

Thank you

ROSE nee ADDLEMAN #lithuania

Angie Elfassi
 

Hi,

I have on my tree a Rose nee ADDLEMAN born in the UK
about 1899. Daughter of Maurice ADDLEMAN and Betsy
nee COHEN m. 1895.

Rose's father Maurice ADDLEMAN was born in Kovno and
her mgfather Max COHEN was >from SAKIAI. Im not yet
sure where her mgmother: either Fanny or Annie was
from. Either LIthuania or Poland.

Rose died in Israel about 1980 and her married name
may have been COHEN. She was born in Wolverhampton,
UK. Apparently one of her brother's paid for her body
to be flown back to England for burial.

This is not directly Lithuanian, but because of the
connection through her father Maurice ADDLEMAN and her
grandparents COHEN, Im hoping the moderator will let
it published.

Anything ring any bells to anyone?

Regards
Angie Elfassi
Yehud, Israel

MODERATOR'S NOTE: This message is within the scope of this list because
it includes mention of the towns in Lithuania >from which the family came.
Please respond privately if you have family information for Angie.

new listing of German Jews killed in the Holocaust #general

Renee Steinig <rsteinig@...>
 

A news story >from the Deutsche Presse-Agentur reports on a new, expanded
list of German citizens who were killed in the Holocaust. The four-volume
register, compiled by Germany's Federal Archives, was introduced at a
ceremony at Berlin's New Synagogue on Monday. The register updates an
earlier edition which listed only victims >from the former West Germany. The
new version contains 150,000 names, including victims >from all of Germany
and parts of modern Poland.

This new publication certainly sounds like the long awaited update of the
two-volume Gedenkbuch (_Gedenkbuch-Opfer der Verfolgung der Juden unter der
nationalsozialistischen Gewaltherrschaft in Deutschland 1933-1945_),
published in 1986 by the Bundesarchiv, Koblenz.

The article, "Germany updates official list of Jews murdered," appears on
the web site of Boston's Combined Jewish Philanthropies
(www.cjp.org/content_display.html?ArticleID=183297). It also mentions that a
computer database of Jews in Germany, based on the 1939 Minority Census, can
be consulted at the New Synagogue, and that the Archives is working to
compile list of all Jews who lived in Germany between 1933 and 1945.

I have no information beyond what is in the article online.

Education Programming at the IAJGS Conference #general

Gloria Berkenstat Freund
 

The 26th IAJGS Conference holds exciting opportunities for professional
educators, librarians, and would-be genealogy educators. This is the
wonderful line up of presentations:

* Lifelong Learning: Teach Genealogy to Adults
Join panelists Shelly Talalay Dardasti, Nolan Altman, and Rhoda Miller (and
moderator Susan Stone) who represent considerable experience teaching
genealogy to adults in various educational settings: adult education,
community group presentations, online courses, in-service for teachers, and
college credit.

* Engage Children in Learning by Teaching Family History
Join panelists Daniel Horowitz, Linda Volin, Ira Wolfman, and William Foster
Hayes III, Ph.D. (and moderator Rhoda Miller) who represent considerable
experience teaching genealogy to children in religious schools, public
schools, authoring books, and conducting doctoral research. Wondering about
William Foster Hayes III, Ph.D.? Many will know him as Bill Hayes in his
over thirty years of stardom in Days of Our Lives, regular on Sid Cesar's
Your Show of Shows, and crooner of The Ballad of Davy Crockett. What does
he have to do with teaching genealogy to children? Come to hear this panel
and find out! You will also have the opportunity to meet his long time
on-and-off screen wife Susan Seaforth Hayes at the signing of their dual
autobiography, Like Sounds Through the Hourglass.

* Serving Genealogy Patrons: A Librarian's Guide
Join Toni Raptis, genealogy librarian of the Patchogue-Medford Public
Library, the genealogical center of the Suffolk County Library System.
Hear about her innovative ideas in serving the genealogy public. Not a
librarian? Come to learn the best ways to get librarians to help *you*!

* Are you thinking about teaching genealogy but still a bit unsure?
Hone your skills by attending sessions focusing on methodology. Simply go
to the conference website http://www.jgsny2006.org/ and search for programs on
the topic of Methodology. You will find a huge array of resources!
