Final word from the Seattle 2016 Conference #lithuania

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

If you attended the Conference, did you get to every session you wanted
to see? Did you hear buzz about sessions you wish you had been to? What
about the one that created an Aha! moment you want to recapture (like
Devin Naar's keynote or Judy Russell's banquet talk)?

You still can subscribe to the LIVE! on-demand service that will let you
watch many of the best sessions of the past week after you get home. You
can subscribe on line, for 90 days of on-demand viewing for $179.
On-demand viewing is good through 12 November 2016

To subscribe, go to the Attendee Service Center, log in, select Buy
LIVE!, Edit your account, and click Continue to the page with the LIVE!
Full Add On check box. Check it and continue to the confirmation and
payment pages. The Attendee Service Center will remain open next week,
but don't procrastinate, because we will have to close it soon.

For those who did not register for the Conference, please give us a
chance to regroup for a couple of days. Then, beginning 15 August, go
to the New Registration page at
https://s4.goeshow.com/iajgs/annual/2016/registration_form.cfm
We don't know how long we can keep that page open, so please do it
before August 19.

LitvakSIG AGM and elected board members #lithuania

Carol Hoffman
 

On Thursday, 11 August 2016, LitvakSIG held its annual general meeting
during the IAJGS 2016 conference in Seattle, WA. The financial report
and the activities' report were delivered followed by elections to the
board.

We are proud to announce that Jill Anderson, Russ Maurer and Garri
Regev have been elected to the board, joining the continuing members
Barry Halpern (Secretary), Dorothy Leivers (Records Acquisition
Chair), Ralph Salinger (Membership & DC), Phil Shapiro, Amy Wachs
(Election Committee and DC) and Carol Hoffman (President). I wish the
new board success in its endeavors. We look forward to working
together.

I thank outgoing board members Eden Joachim (Treasurer, former
President, Vice President) and Judy Baston (Vice President, DC,
LitvakSIG Digest moderator) who could not continue to serve another
term due to restrictions of our Bylaws; we do look forward to their
continued interest and activity with us. Grant Gochin chose not to
stand for another term due to overload in his work and commitment
schedule; we thank him for all that he has done and do look forward to
continued cooperation.

As the conference comes to a close, I want to extend a very special
thank you to Mrs. Virginija Cijunskiene, director of the Lithuania
State Historical Archive, who agreed to be our honored guest this
year. She has traveled the very long distance >from Vilnius to Seattle
to be with us, delivered three outstanding presentations, and has had
the patience to answer endless questions. Aciu

Our LitvakSIG presence and participation at this conference has been
wonderful. Lectures were presented by Judy Baston, Virginija
Cijunskiene, Rhoda Miller, Amy Wachs, and Ruth Leiserowitz. It was
standing room for most of the presentations. Jill Anderson (crossed
the ocean to be with us), Max Heffler, Dorothy Leivers (remote from
England), Rhoda Miller, Judy Baston, Roy Ogus, Phil Shapiro and Amy Wachs
captivated their BOF meetings with their knowledge and care. I do want
to extend a special thank you to Aldona Shapiro who helped make every
day of the conference successful!

LitvakSIG is grateful to all who has participated in helping us make
those 2.5 million, an growing, number of records online for you. We
thank you for your support and contributions; we can accomplish this
only with you.

Interpretation of an address in Lodz #poland

Ariel K <arielvfu@...>
 

Added a referance of addresses >from the 1916-1920 census of Lodz

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM49773

The second street is known to us (Zgierska) while we are completely
clueless about the first address- Rielbacha(?)

We didn't found any evidence of such street ever existing in Lodz
Also it is written on the top of the page Budapesztu (if we managed to
read it correctly), they NEVER lived in Budapest- or maybe was there
maybe an area in Lodz (or maybe nearby the city) with this name during
those years?

thanks

Gesher Galicia's All Galicia Database and JewishGen's All-Poland and All-Ukraine Databases start data linking agreement #austria-czech

Asparagirl
 

Gesher Galicia is proud to announce that we have started a new data
sharing initiative with our friends at JewishGen.org!

Now when you search for a person or a place in the All Galicia
Database (freely available at http://search.geshergalicia.org/), at
the bottom of the page of results, you'll see links to matching search
results in relevant databases at JewishGen. And when you do a search
in JewishGen's All-Ukraine Database or All-Poland Database, at the
bottom of their page of results you'll see links to relevant matches
in the All Galicia Database.

This data sharing is accomplished using Gesher Galicia's new API
(Application Programming Interface), which allows our data to stay
solely on our own servers, but still allows other organizations'
computer systems to quickly see if there are any appropriate matches
in our holdings, and generates the appropriate direct links.
Similarly, JewishGen's data holdings remain solely on their own
servers, but they're able to generate deep links to relevant data
sets, where appropriate.

This important data sharing work was first discussed a few years ago,
with the support and cooperation of our late President Pamela
Weisberger z''l, and we are proud to finally be able to bring this
work to fruition in her memory. Her name remains as a co-author on
the data sharing agreement that was signed by the two groups.

Thank you to Warren Blatt and Michael Tobias for all their hard work
at JewishGen to help make this project into a reality.

Gesher Galicia hopes to use this new API to share our data -- which
currently stands at 455,115 records >from 294 different data sources,
and growing every month -- with more non-profit organizations in the
near future. Happy searching!

I am researching a g.g. grandmother by the name of Hinda Mesyngier.
Various spellings have been used in records. I live IN ISRAEL and
don't have access to family search locations. However I have located
one record online with a readable microfilm scan. It is in two parts
which I have posted on viewmate. I have reason to think that her
father's first and last name might be written here, which would be
very helpful, however the answer I got to one of the scans did not
include the first name and no one answered the other one. I also
posted a third scan request which has not yet been approved. Can
anyone please help me?

They are in polish. You can find them at:
