Dear Susan,
I am reading your letter about RACHEL VINER and wondering how she was
Related to the family GOLDSHMIDT ?
Actually I am busy with our Goldshmidt /Tsoref cousins,here in Israel
(Kibbutz Ginnosar and Lochmei HaGetaot) at the moment.
My "bridge" to you is through BERSHANSKY,Jonava. Bashe B. married Joseph
Viner,thus my interest in any north of England Viner families.

Yours,
Brenda Habshush,
Kibbutz Sde Boker. Israel


Researching: Bernstein:Viner:Lightman.

What does Oct 29 to Nov 26 2011 have in common with IAJGS, your JGS, your
SIG, you and the Jewish Genealogy? If your answer was that this is the
Hebrew month of Cheshvan you are right in part. It is also International
Jewish Genealogy Month and an opportunity and vehicle to have our
communities focus on Jewish Genealogy and our JCCs, our SIGS and our
projects.

This year's International Jewish Genealogy Month Committee will be chaired
by Nancy Adelson of Seattle who will be joined by Rabbi Garry Gans of New
Jersey, Howard Morris of Boston, Jeanette Rosenberg of England and Garri
Regev of Jerusalem. We are still looking to expand the committee and get
volunteers to ensure a success so if you have any ideas let me know.

And though our focus is a month of great programs, our annual poster is an
anchor. Details of the poster contest for which a June 15th submission date
has been established, are to be found at our website www.iajgs.org and will
be elaborated on by Nancy.

So start thinking of International Jewish Genealogy Month whether you live
in Los Angeles, Toronto, Liverpool, Ra'anana, Johannesburg, Paris or
Melbourne. Your fall programs are right around the corner.

Rachel VINER marriage lookup assistance #unitedkingdom

mbenedict51@...
 

If you're looking for local area info, it's always worth trying the local
register office sites, where they exist. This marriage shows up on the free
LancashireBMD site, with the matching of the names; and you may be able to order

direct, via that site, for the standard certificate fee of £9, though they do
charge an extra £1 for paying by credit card.

Alternatively, the FreeBMD site also shows the marriage and gives you the
matching name. With (or without) the reference info on FreeBMD, you can order
directly >from the GRO, and pay by credit card, for £9.25.

Unless you want to pay a great deal more for the same thing, I would recommend
that you avoid intermediary services which will be doing only what you could do
for yourself, but for a substantial mark-up.
