Volozhin Yeshiva #belarus

I am researching my family (HaKohen in Yiddish, Kaganovich in
Russian), Cohenim scribes who were associated with the great Yeshiva
in Volozhin. I have read (in Yaffa Eliach's "There Once was a World")
that down to the present day, [the Volozhin Yeshiva] members have
remained among the most prominent of the Jewish intellectual elite.
I am eager to hear >from anyone who has family or intellectual ties to
this renowned institution.

Conference Recording Announcement #belarus

We've arranged with the well-regarded, experienced digital media company
Conference Resource LLC to record at least 121 conference sessions and sell
those recordings during and after the conference. The recordings will be in
the versatile MP3 format (that runs on PCs, Macs, and any MP3 audio device
with a USB port). They will be issued in a plastic case with a custom
printed label. There are two ways to purchase the sessions that have been
approved for recording:

- Individual Sessions: in CD format at $9.95 each if purchased during
the conference, or $11.95 plus shipping and handling (S&H) after the
conference

- Full Set of Sessions: in Flash Drive format at $134 each if purchased
prior to the conference, $149 at the conference, or the same price plus S&H
after the conference.

Why buy such recordings? By having them, you can benefit even more >from the
conference and advance your family history research, as follows:

If you're attending the full conference – you can take part in other
conference events and still have access to sessions that occurred on the
day(s) or hours that you did other things (such as researching your roots at
the Resource Center, attending SIG or BOF meetings, networking, visiting
vendors, or enjoying film screenings and discussions with directors of
award-winning films). What a great way to flexibly plan your conference
week!

If you're attending part of the conference -- you can purchase individual
sessions that matter to you and were held on the day(s) you couldn't attend,
and listen to them at your own convenience.

If you weren't able to attend any part of the conference -- you can purchase
and listen at your own convenience to the session(s) that matter most to
you, or to the entire set of recorded conference sessions.

And all these options share three other key benefits --
1. You'll have ALL the spoken text of the speaker(s) at the sessions you've
chosen to purchase. That way, if you attended a session that was recorded,
and the notes you took during the session weren't clear or if you missed
something -- you can just listen to the session again, and verify or fill-in
those facts!

2. Another plus is that you'll also be able to listen to a session and a
given speaker more than once, if a concept you've heard isn't somehow clear
but is very important to you.

3. You'll also have these sessions and/or the full set of recorded sessions
as a reference tool in advancing your research, whenever it becomes helpful
to do so.

This conference's organizers didn't create the concept of selling recorded
sessions -- this has been a favorite purchase of conference attendees for
quite a few years, it's considered so valuable!

Contact conference Resource LLC at www.myconferenceresource.com, or look for
their sales table at the conference.

Remember - Online registration ends on July 31. Last chance to sign up for
all meal events and Embassy visits!

Announcing NALDEX - [Name Adoption List Index] #germany

Roger Lustig
 

GerSIG, the German Special Interest Group, is proud to announce the
on-line publication of the first phase of NALDEX, the Name Adoption List
inDEX for Germany, at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Germany/Naldex.htm

NALDEX is accessible via this link, or through the All-Germany Database.

**** Those parts that relate to former German territory east of the
**** Oder-Neisse line are also included in the All-Poland Database.

This first phase presents, in database form, almost all of the published
naturalization and surname-adoption lists >from Prussia that are known to
survive. These lists were created in two different eras: 1812-16 in
Brandenburg and most of the eastern parts of the Prussian state; and
1845-47 in the Rhineland (east of the river), Westphalia and the Culm
region of West Prussia.

One other published list is included as well: Lippe-Detmold, 1810-11.

The database contains over 16,000 entries, each representing a head of
household. Some of the lists contain little information--only the head
of household's name and residence. Others list spouses and offspring
(generally in age order, as far as I can tell!), occupations and/or
maiden and former names.

To the extent possible, we have included all the information found on
the lists, and have transcribed names and places as read. Occupations
are given in German and English, and modern place names are given in
Polish or Czech where appropriate. (Still to come: Russian and Lithuanian.)

More information about the project is available at the link given above.
We hope to have more extensive information about each of the source
lists on-line very soon.

We look forward to receiving comments, recommendations and contributions
toward the next phases of the project. I and many other contributors
will be in Washington, DC for the IAJGS meeting beginning August 14, and
hope to hear >from people who have used NALDEX already, plan to, or have
ideas for extending and improving it. Both of my presentations at the
conference will touch on NALDEX.

In the meantime, please let me know of your experiences using the
database. Success stories are especially welcome, of course!

with a custom printed label. There are two ways to purchase
the sessions that have been approved for recording:

- Individual Sessions: in CD format at $9.95 each if
purchased during the conference, or $11.95 plus shipping and
handling (S&H) after the conference.

- Full Set of Sessions: in Flash Drive format at $134 each if
purchased prior to the conference, $149 at the conference, or
the same price plus S&H after the conference.

Why buy such recordings? By having them, you can benefit
even more >from the conference and advance your family
history research, as follows:

If you're attending the full conference you can take part in
other conference events and still have access to sessions that
occurred on the day(s) or hours that you did other things (such
as researching your roots at the Resource Center, attending
SIG or BOF meetings, networking, visiting vendors, or enjoying
film screenings and discussions with directors of
award-winning films). What a great way to flexibly plan your
conference week!

If you're attending part of the conference -- you can purchase
individual sessions that matter to you and were held on the
day(s) you couldn't attend, and listen to them at your own
convenience.

If you weren't able to attend any part of the conference -- you
can purchase and listen at your own convenience to the
session(s) that matter most to you, or to the entire set of
recorded conference sessions.

And all these options share three other key benefits --
1. You'll have ALL the spoken text of the speaker(s) at the
sessions you've chosen to purchase. That way, if you attended
a session that was recorded, and the notes you took during the
session weren't clear or if you missed something -- you can
just listen to the session again, and verify or fill-in those facts!

2. Another plus is that you'll also be able to listen to a session
and a given speaker more than once, if a concept you've heard
isn't somehow clear but is very important to you.

3. You'll also have these sessions and/or the full set of
recorded sessions as a reference tool in advancing your
research, whenever it becomes helpful to do so.

This conference's organizers didn't create the concept of
selling recorded sessions -- this has been a favorite purchase
of conference attendees for quite a few years, it's considered
so valuable!

Blown Up Images of CAHJP vital record copies #germany

Stephanie Nordlinger <nordlingers@...>
 

Dear Martha, et al.

Has there been any general effort to blow up these miniature [copies
of vital records] ?

If so, where are they located? In the towns, the regional archives
or somewhere else? LDS doesn't seem to have them.

I remember trying to read probably the Noerdlingen Familien
Register at the Central Archives of the History of the Jewish People in
Jerusalem some years ago, and it was almost impossible. Best regards,

Stephanie Nordlinger, Los Angeles Calif. [street address & phone deleted by

Nazis destroyed the originals.

The books are painful to research and can only be read with a
magnifying glass, and even then sometimes they are illegible
because their sewn binding gets into the actual record and because
much of the writing is very sloppy.

It is my understanding that in Germany, they have blown up these
miniatures and have more legible records available.
If I am not mistaken, they are located at Detmold, or perhaps that
is the place where they enlarged the miniatures. I am sure someone
else will chime in with the proper details.

So the short answer is that records going very far back in Fuerth
are available, so as recent as 1862 should be as well.
