Judy Baston receives IAJGS Lifetime Achievement Award #general

Stanley Diamond
 

On behalf of the Executive Committee and Board of Jewish
Records Indexing - Poland and all JRI-Poland volunteers, it is
my sincere pleasure to extend heartiest congratulations to our
colleague and friend, Judy Baston on receiving the IAJGS
Lifetime Achievement Award.

Judy has been been an integral part of JRI-Poland leadership
from its infancy twenty years ago providing her unique level of
wisdom, experience and insight. As the JRI-Poland mailing list
moderator and a member of the JRI-Poland Executive Committee,
Judy has been the conscience of our organization, exemplifying
the qualities that set a standard for all of us.

In recognizing and honoring Judy's lifetime of achievement, the
IAJGS has selected a most deserving member of the Jewish
genealogical community. Although she has made significant
contributions to other organizations and projects over the years,
we are proud to call her "our Judy."

I am very happy to let you know that Judy Baston won this year's IAJGS
Lifetime Achievement Award. The award was announced and bestowed at the
Banquet in Jerusalem on Thursday evening, July 9.

Judy is very involved in numerous genealogy organizations besides
LitvakSIG.
The inscription on the award reads: "In recognition of Judy's tireless
work as: a LitvakSIG board member; moderator of the LitvakSIG
Discussion Group; membership of the JRI-Poland Board; Lomza Archive
Coordinator; and moderator of the Lodz Area Research Group and
BialyGen discussion groups. Judy was also involved in editing/
proofreading Yizkor Book translations for Ciechanowiec, Eisiskes and
Ostrow Mazowiecka, and is a sought after speaker."
Judy is also District Coordinator of the Lida and Oshmiany District
Research Groups of LitvakSIG and the moderator of the JRI-Poland
discussion Group. I probably missed something, so I apologize in advance.

In her "spare" time back home in California, Judy is very involved
with the Jewish Community Library of San Francisco where she
volunteers and helps conduct monthly genealogy workshops.

I am very proud to call Judy my friend and to say Mazel Tov!

Konin and Kalisz vital records now online #general

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

Scans of Jewish vital records >from Konin and Kalisz were recently
added to http://szukajwarchiwach.pl . Konin: BMD for 1826-1912,
excluding 1849, 1854, 1857, 1861, 1864, 1867-1868, 1872, 1875-1877,
and 1890 (and excluding 1902 for births). Kalisz: BMD for 1875-1892
and (recently added) 1906-1911. Extracts of some, but not all, of
these records are available at http://jri-poland.org .

To view the scans:

1) Visit the overview list of records at (Konin)
http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/54/840/0/str/1/100#tabJednostki
or (Kalisz)
http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/11/693/0/str/1/100#tabJednostki .

2) Identify a group of records of interest by looking at the title in
the second column >from the left, the date or date range in the third
column >from the left, and the number of scans currently online in the
last column on the right. If the last column is a 0, there are no
scans online for that group.

3) Click on the title of the group of interest.

4) On the new page that is displayed, click on the tab called "Skany,"
"Scans," or "Digital copies," which should be to the right of the red
tab.

5) You should now see thumbnail images of several scans. There is a
dropdown menu just above the thumbnails that determines how many
thumbnails are displayed per page, defaulting to 15. You might want
to change this to the maximum, 100.

6) To enlarge a thumbnail so you can read what is in the image, click
on the thumbnail and a larger -- but not yet full-size -- image will
pop up. This is sometimes sufficient for you to determine whether the
image is of interest, e.g., when browsing through images looking for a
specific surname or record number, or when trying to find records from
around a specific date.

7) In the bottom right of the larger image's pop-up are two icons in
white on black circular backgrounds -- one a rectangle with marks at
the corners and the other a "z." To view the full-size image, click
the rectangle icon. Another window should pop up, probably without
any image initially. Wait, and the full-size image should appear
within about a minute. The image might be too big to be displayed all
at once, in which case you can move your cursor over the image, click
with your mouse, and, while holding your mouse button down, drag the
image around so other parts are visible. Below the image, centered,
is a download link (you might have to use the window's scrollbar to
see the the link).

To view the scans:

1) Visit the overview list of records at the above link for your town.

2) Identify a group of records of interest by looking at the title in
the second column >from the left, the date or date range in the third
column >from the left, and the number of scans currently online in the
last column on the right. If the last column is a 0, there are no
scans online for that group. The date ranges above are for groups
with scans online.

3) Click on the title of the group of interest.

4) On the new page that is displayed, click on the tab called "Skany,"
"Scans," or "Digital copies," which should be to the right of the red
tab.

5) You should now see thumbnail images of several scans. There is a
dropdown menu just above the thumbnails that determines how many
thumbnails are displayed per page, defaulting to 15. You might want
to change this to the maximum, 100.

6) To enlarge a thumbnail so you can read what is in the image, click
on the thumbnail and a larger -- but not yet full-size -- image will
pop up. This is sometimes sufficient for you to determine whether the
image is of interest, e.g., when browsing through images looking for a
specific surname or record number, or when trying to find records from
around a specific date.

7) In the bottom right of the larger image's pop-up are two icons in
white on black circular backgrounds -- one a rectangle with marks at
the corners and the other a "z." To view the full-size image, click
the rectangle icon. Another window should pop up, probably without
any image initially. Wait, and the full-size image should appear
within about a minute. The image might be too big to be displayed all
at once, in which case you can move your cursor over the image, click
with your mouse, and, while holding your mouse button down, drag the
image around so other parts are visible. Below the image, centered,
is a download link (you might have to use the window's scrollbar to
see the the link).

Hello:

Is anyone here looking for relatives >from Pungesti? Over 41% of the
population was Jewish in the 1880s, so I don't understand why there's so
little interest. (Full disclosure: Yes, I'm trying to stir up some
interest.)

Re: Searching 'LISAHL/LIZEL/LISEL' surname and family in Imperial Russia. #ukraine

Jono Trotter <thejono95@...>
 

To Whom it may Concern,

My name is Jonathan Trotter and I am currently conducting some family
history research on my ancestress, Johanna Catherine Elisabeth LISAHL.

Although I have been investigating this particular area of my ancestry
for some years now, I have continuously been unable to uncover
any information on my 'LISAHL' ancestors back in Europe. The surname
'LISAHL' is an anglicization, constructed by the death registrar upon
Johanna's death in 1889 here in New Zealand, the original spelling
of the surname I do not know, which is proving to be my biggest
problem. She also is documented by my family to have never
talked about her life back in Europe, rather, being more content
to change the subject and talk about her husband Heinrich's
parentage even after he had abandoned her in 1870.

I have been in contact with both the Hamburg Evangelical Lutheran
Church and the local Genealogical Society, but both have told
me that no Lutheran records exist for a surname even remotely
close to 'LISAHL'. However, there has always been speculation
that Johanna was a Jew >from the Russian Empire, who had fled
to Hamburg, Germany with her first husband, to save their son,
Johann, >from being captured by the 'knappers' and thrown in
the Czarist Military. Additionally, it has also been said that
her father was a tailor, a detail that has been documented
as being responsible for Johanna's and her two daughter's
unique style as well as interest in spinning/sewing.

Because of this speculation concerning Johanna's
possible 'hidden' Russian Jewish ancestry, I felt
that it would be appropriate if I registered myself
on this website and looked through their records. Funnily
enough, I found two registration's for people with
the last name 'LIZEL/LISEL' in the 1895 Vsia Rossiia Business
Directory and the 1906 Kiev Gubernia Duma Voters Lists. Both
of these sources listed these individuals as living in the
area of the Ukraine known formally known as the Kiev
Governorate, which (along with the Volhynian and Podolia
Governorates) is in the region of the Pale of Settlement
where I felt that it was most plausible that Johanna's
family were from.

Nonetheless, I was just posting this message to
see if anybody could help me investigate this
possibility of Russian Jewish ancestry within
my family. Like I have said I have exhausted
the larger part of my resources in Hamburg, and
after finding these similar-sounding/written surnames
on the JewishGen Ukraine database, I am
heavily interested in finding out a little bit
more about the possible existence of the
'LISAHL/LIZEL/LISEL' name in Imperial Russia.
The time period in question is roughly 1790 to 1840,
however, I would welcome any records from
any time period that could document the
existence of a surname like 'LISAHL' during the
late Imperial Russian era (1790-1917).

Yours truly,

Jonathan Gary Trotter
