Latest News About IAJGS Annual Conference: Film Festival #latinamerica

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

We are thrilled to announce that Jewish film authority Eric Goldman is
organizing the film festival for the 36th IAJGS International Conference
on Jewish Genealogy to be held at the Seattle Sheraton Hotel >from August
7-12. Goldman is putting together an array of 25 Jewish-themed films
that will be one of the high points of this summer's conference. Goldman
stated it would "offer an amazing look at world Jewry and the various
migrations that have impacted our people through the centuries. There
will be a special focus on immigration to the United States." He is a
noted Jewish film scholar and teacher of cinema at Yeshiva University.

Other highlights of the 2016 conference include the opening night
keynote address by Dr. Devin Naar, chair of the University of Washington
Sephardic Studies Program, and the banquet address by "legal
genealogist" Judy Russell, a Certified Genealogist and Certified
Genealogical Lecturer. There are also planned Alaskan cruises before and
after the conference.

The conference's Early Registration period, which runs until April 30,
offers the lowest fees, with savings of $55 for the full conference. The
conference website, http://www.iajgs2016.org, has complete details on
how to register for all levels of the conference. Once registered, you
can make reservations at the Sheraton Hotel at a reduced rate.

Since we know that there is no way to attend every single session at the
conference, we've made it easy to catch what you may miss - audio files
with slides and Live! are the answer. Live! is a real-time video
streaming service. If you subscribe to Live! you will have access to the
archives on-demand for 90 days after the conference is over! Both can be
subscribed to during the registration process.

If you can't join us in person in Seattle, you can still subscribe to
Seattle 2016 Live! and you can also purchase the audio and slides. Early
registrants to Live! will receive a $70 discount off the August price.

Sign up for the discussion group >from the "about" tab on the conference
website, and the blog >from the link on the right hand side of the page.

Marriage Entries - Rybnik / Gleiwitz #germany

Stephen Falk <sfalkjd@...>
 

I am hoping that someone can help answer a couple questions regarding
two marriage entries in Rybnik that seem to have occurred in Gleiwitz
in two different years for the same couple.

JRI-PL indexed the Rybnik marriages, and the following shows up there
as indexed >from LDS Film # 879597 (no item nos. given):

20-Aug-1847:
Marriage entry for HAHN, Lazarus and HEILBORN, Handel (Akt 89, Page 11).
Both fathers' occupation is given as 'Kaufmann/businessman', the
bride's father's name as L=C3=B6bel, the place of marriage is listed as
Gleiwitz (at least this is how I read the index).

28-Mar-1849:
Marriage entry for HAHN, Lazarus and HEILBORN, Johanna (Akt 24, Page 4v).
Both fathers' occupation is given as 'Kaufmann/merchant', the bride's
father's name as Loebel, the place of marriage as Gleiwitz.

I believe that bride and groom are the same persons in both entries,
but cannot explain why there would be two entries two years apart.
Also, why would this have been recorded in Rybnik and not Gleiwitz?

Thank you for your help.

The town of Elsdorf in Cologne [seeking vital records] #germany

Hi,
I just had a quick question. Does anyone have any sources of
information about Jews who lived in Elsdorf in the 17 and 1800's. I
was hoping FamilySearch would have microfilms but they don't appear to
have anything relevant to what I am looking for so I am looking for
other sources. Thanks in advance Steve
