Hello fellow GerSig members!
I joined the group end of October 2014. I have been doing genealogy research for
little more than a year and am an absolute beginner in doing German Jewish research.

I live in the town of Fredensborg in the north eastern part of Sealand, Denmark.
Fredensborg is the town where the Danish Queen and Prince have their Summer Residence.
My native language is Danish and I read and speak English, German, French, Swedish
and understand Norwegian and - with an educational background where advanced
Latin was mandatory - some Italian and Spanish.

My formal education are Master Degrees in World History and Danish Literature
but my working life has been centered around the IT-industry, where business
understanding, software development and system operations with focus on processes,
standards, and management have been the main areas. I understand the basics
and the advanced features of computers.

I have identified the names and birth and death dates of all of my
grandparents, all of my great grandparents and all of my great great
grandparents, except for my German ancestors, the WULFF branch :(
In fact about half the other branches have been traced back to the sixteenth century.

My primary research goals now are both vertical and horisontal. Vertically to uncover
my German Ancestors and those of my wife and horizontally to identify the life
conditions of each generation based on whatever details are available. Naturally
this should end up in the fictitious story of my wife's and my family for the children
to enjoy, maybe expand and certainly to pass on to the coming generations.
Best Regards,
Jens Christian Wulff, Fredensborg, Denmark - jens.wulff@complicity.dk

My JGFF Researcher ID number is 654196. I plan to enter the following in the JGFF:
WULFF - Amalienhof (?), Mecklenburg Schwerin to Frederikshavn, Hjoerring, Denmark
around 1858 and possibly the spouse
TUCK (U umlaut} - Amalienhof (?), Mecklenburg Schwerin to Frederikshavn,
Hjoerring, Denmark around 1858

Jewish Genealogical Society of Colorado presents "A Nose for the News" - Sunday Nov. 9th #general

Terry Lasky <talasky@...>
 

"Extra! Extra! A Nose for the News: Locating Your Family in Newspapers"

Presented by Dina Carson
Open to the public - all welcome!
Location: Jewish Community Center, 350 South Dahlia Street, Denver
Time: 10:00 am until Noon on Sunday, November 9th

One of the biggest challenges in using newspapers for genealogical research
is determining whether a newspaper was published in the location and time
when your ancestors lived. Learn a few tips for finding historical newspapers.
Searching in newspapers, even when they have been scanned and placed on
line can yield few results until you learn some simple techniques for
raising the odds that you will find what you are looking for. Did you know
that most 19th century newspapers issued death notices but did not call
them obituaries? Discover how to locate those hidden gems with simple search
techniques. Newspapers provide rich source material for writing about our
ancestors' lives. Come learn how to dig up the dirt on your ancestors.

Dina Carson has been involved in genealogy for more than two decades, and
is currently the coordinator of the Boulder Pioneers Project, a comprehensive
look at the original source documents for Boulder County during the
Territorial period (1859-1876). She is the author of more than a dozen
annotated indexes of Boulder County source materials. She lectures frequently
to genealogical societies throughout the state and is working with the Colorado
State Archives on a state-wide indexing project. Although her formal
education is in International Law and Economics, she owns Iron Gate
Publishing, a publishing company and is a partner in Imagination Technology,
a graphic design and marketing firm working with small business clients.
Dina is the author of the new book, Set Yourself Up to Self-Publish:
A Genealogist's Guide. Dina brings her experience with all phases of book
publishing to help first-time self-publishers create quality family or
local histories that are both believable and achievable. When she's not at a
computer working on a publishing project, you can find her photographing
the pioneer cemeteries of Colorado.

Dina is the immediate Past-President of the Jewish Genealogical Society of
Colorado.

Nolan Altman
 

The Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island (JGSLI) is proud to announce its
new website at http://jgsli.org/ Please feel free to visit our site, watch
our welcoming video and read through our resources, services and projects.
Lauren Fox, the site's designer, worked on the website with our former
president Rhoda Miller for an independent study project at Dowling College.
After an off-the-cuff question as to whether she knew anything about her
ancestry, Rhoda's research, that was to include a standard search of typical
documents, revealed a connection to two well know Yiddish poets and an
interesting Holocaust family story. The methods and techniques used to
create her family history became the subject of our very successful October
monthly meeting, "Who Do You Think You Are, Lauren Fox?"

JGSLI is also pleased to announce the inauguration of its YouTube channel.

Yizkor Book Project, October 2014 #general

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

As with quite a few of my recent Yizkor Book Project reports, once again, I
am able to announce the very gratifying news that yet another Yizkor Book
has now been completely translated and appears online. This time the project
which has reached this lofty goal is: Klobuck, Poland (The Book of
Klobucko; in memory of a martyred community which was destroyed) which was
adeptly coordinated by Allan Mantel and the riveting translations it
contains were prepared by Asher Szmulewicz and Gloria Berkenstat Freund.
Kudos to you all!

I was going to categorize what happened in the Yizkor Book Project during
October as the "Ukrainian Invasion" but realized that the term has already
been used... The reason I wanted to emphasize Ukraine is because I wanted to
point out the very large number of updates made relating to Ukrainian
communities during this past month. In particular ten new entries were added
from the Pinkas Hakehillot Poland (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in
Poland) for Ukrainian communities and I wish to thank Ron Doctor, Ellen
Garshick and the Kremenets District Research Group for being the driving
forces behind this welcome initiative.

For those of you who aren't familiar, the Yad Vashem museum in Israel
published a very large series of Pinkas Hakehillot (community
encyclopedias) presenting details of a huge number of communities which had
a large or small Jewish presence within them before the Holocaust. As such,
these volumes do present us with unique information on communities that
might not have been covered in any Yizkor book and hence, their importance
to us. I have pleased to see that more and more people are taking interest
in these volumes and if you are contemplating in sponsoring or translating
any of the articles >from these encyclopedias, please contact me and I will
assist in facilitating their translation.

Now to facts and figures for October.

Kozienice-Szames: looking for Marriage record no 35 1903 of Malka Szames and Lazar Frydman #general

Olivier Dzik <olivierdzik@...>
 

Dear all,
I am looking for the marriage record no 35, year 1903 in the Kozienice
book for Lazar Frydman and Malka Szames. The marriage occured in 1889-90
but was probably recorded later, in 1903.

If you can not send the record itself, a transcript will be ok or at least
the names of Malka Szames parents.

Thank you very much for your time.

Shalom,

As with quite a few of my recent Yizkor Book Project reports, once again, I
am able to announce the very gratifying news that yet another Yizkor Book
has now been completely translated and appears online. This time the project
which has reached this lofty goal is: Klobuck, Poland (The Book of
Klobucko; in memory of a martyred community which was destroyed) which was
adeptly coordinated by Allan Mantel and the riveting translations it
contains were prepared by Asher Szmulewicz and Gloria Berkenstat Freund.
Kudos to you all!

I was going to categorize what happened in the Yizkor Book Project during
October as the "Ukrainian Invasion" but realized that the term has already
been used... The reason I wanted to emphasize Ukraine is because I wanted to
point out the very large number of updates made relating to Ukrainian
communities during this past month. In particular ten new entries were added
from the Pinkas Hakehillot Poland (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in
Poland) for Ukrainian communities and I wish to thank Ron Doctor, Ellen
Garshick and the Kremenets District Research Group for being the driving
forces behind this welcome initiative.

For those of you who aren't familiar, the Yad Vashem museum in Israel
published a very large series of Pinkas Hakehillot (community
encyclopedias) presenting details of a huge number of communities which had
a large or small Jewish presence within them before the Holocaust. As such,
these volumes do present us with unique information on communities that
might not have been covered in any Yizkor book and hence, their importance
to us. I have pleased to see that more and more people are taking interest
in these volumes and if you are contemplating in sponsoring or translating
any of the articles >from these encyclopedias, please contact me and I will
assist in facilitating their translation.

Now to facts and figures for October.

am able to announce the very gratifying news that yet another Yizkor Book
has now been completely translated and appears online. This time the project
which has reached this lofty goal is: Klobuck, Poland (The Book of
Klobucko; in memory of a martyred community which was destroyed) which was
adeptly coordinated by Allan Mantel and the riveting translations it
contains were prepared by Asher Szmulewicz and Gloria Berkenstat Freund.
Kudos to you all!

I was going to categorize what happened in the Yizkor Book Project during
October as the "Ukrainian Invasion" but realized that the term has already
been used... The reason I wanted to emphasize Ukraine is because I wanted to
point out the very large number of updates made relating to Ukrainian
communities during this past month. In particular ten new entries were added
from the Pinkas Hakehillot Poland (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in
Poland) for Ukrainian communities and I wish to thank Ron Doctor, Ellen
Garshick and the Kremenets District Research Group for being the driving
forces behind this welcome initiative.

For those of you who aren't familiar, the Yad Vashem museum in Israel
published a very large series of Pinkas Hakehillot (community
encyclopedias) presenting details of a huge number of communities which had
a large or small Jewish presence within them before the Holocaust. As such,
these volumes do present us with unique information on communities that
might not have been covered in any Yizkor book and hence, their importance
to us. I have pleased to see that more and more people are taking interest
in these volumes and if you are contemplating in sponsoring or translating
any of the articles >from these encyclopedias, please contact me and I will
assist in facilitating their translation.

Now to facts and figures for October.

Kudos to you all!

I was going to categorize what happened in the Yizkor Book Project during
October as the "Ukrainian Invasion" but realized that the term has already

point out the very large number of updates made relating to Ukrainian
communities during this past month. In particular ten new entries were added
from the Pinkas Hakehillot Poland (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in
Poland) for Ukrainian communities and I wish to thank Ron Doctor, Ellen
Garshick and the Kremenets District Research Group for being the driving
forces behind this welcome initiative.

For those of you who aren't familiar, the Yad Vashem museum in Israel
published a very large series of Pinkas Hakehillot (community
encyclopedias) presenting details of a huge number of communities which had
a large or small Jewish presence within them before the Holocaust. As such,
these volumes do present us with unique information on communities that

Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Yizkor Book Project, October 2014 #lithuania

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

As with quite a few of my recent Yizkor Book Project reports, once again, I
am able to announce the very gratifying news that yet another Yizkor Book
has now been completely translated and appears online. This time the project
which has reached this lofty goal is: Klobuck, Poland (The Book of
Klobucko; in memory of a martyred community which was destroyed) which was
adeptly coordinated by Allan Mantel and the riveting translations it
contains were prepared by Asher Szmulewicz and Gloria Berkenstat Freund.
Kudos to you all!

I was going to categorize what happened in the Yizkor Book Project during
October as the "Ukrainian Invasion" but realized that the term has already
been used... The reason I wanted to emphasize Ukraine is because I wanted to
point out the very large number of updates made relating to Ukrainian
communities during this past month. In particular ten new entries were added
from the Pinkas Hakehillot Poland (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in
Poland) for Ukrainian communities and I wish to thank Ron Doctor, Ellen
Garshick and the Kremenets District Research Group for being the driving
forces behind this welcome initiative.

For those of you who aren't familiar, the Yad Vashem museum in Israel
published a very large series of Pinkas Hakehillot (community
encyclopedias) presenting details of a huge number of communities which had
a large or small Jewish presence within them before the Holocaust. As such,
these volumes do present us with unique information on communities that
might not have been covered in any Yizkor book and hence, their importance
to us. I have pleased to see that more and more people are taking interest
in these volumes and if you are contemplating in sponsoring or translating
any of the articles >from these encyclopedias, please contact me and I will
assist in facilitating their translation.

Now to facts and figures for October.
