Dear Genners

I've recently ordered an Australian marriage certificate which states that
the groom was born in Ratchannee, Poland/Russia 1837. Does anyone know where
this place is located?

advice for searching Ancestry War Diaries (Judeans) #general

Hi Genners

I received an email >from Ancestry this week notifying me the Gallipoli
War Diaries were available to search; my Great Grandfather served in
the 38th Royal Fusiliers (to which the Zion Mule Corps which served at
Gallipoli was the forerunner) and so I thought to search for this
Unit's War Diaries, the search returned lots of results, but nothing
which seemed to specifically relate to the actions they undertook. I
have read several books on the Judeans and featuring them but for a
long time have been interested to see the actual War Diaries kept by
the Unit.

Does anyone know if these are in Ancestry or alternatively where they
might be available to search.

Thanks

Finding what city someone was born in in 1901 and 1886 in Palestine #general

Have you tried the IGRA collection. We have a number of database >from
the Ottoman Empire period. I would also suggest the archive at
Zichron Yaakov which goes back to that period. As to Akko, I
personally have had experience with their archives. Maybe they were
registered with the British consulate in Eretz Israel. If so, they may
be in some of the documents we have indexed. Registration for our

The Children of Nathana Nuty and Feige Aptowitzer #rabbinic

Stanley and Shelda Sandler
 

Dear Genners:

I am searching for the names of the children of Nathana Nuta APTOWITZER and
Feige (maiden name unknown) APTOWITZER. Two of their children were named
Aron Isak (aka "Arnitcha") APTOWITZER and Benzion APTOWITZER. There may
have been seven other siblings whose names are unknown to my generation.

Nathana Nuta and Feige are my 3 x's Great-Grandparents (my
ggg-grandparents). They lived in Galicia, possibly in the town of Zborow
in Tarnopol Gubernia. At the time of their son Benzion's death in 1902,
Nathana Nuta and Feige were deceased.

Benzion Aptowitzer (spelled Abtowitzer on his death record) died in the town
of Zloczow on 26 July 1902. His death record indicates he is >from the town
of Zborow and is the son of deceased parents Nathana Nuty Abtowitzer (sic)
and Feigi Abtowitzer (sic). He was, according to the death record, 74 years
old at the time of his death. He was buried in the town of Zloczow on 28
July 1902. If the information on the death record is accurate, I would
place Benzion's birth during the year of 1828.

I am searching for the names of Benzion's unknown siblings (sons and
daughters of Nathana Nuta and Feige) in order to add the information to my
family history.

I am also trying to determine whether there is any relationship between my
Aptowitzer family and the renowned Rabbi Avigdor (Victor) Aptowitzer, also
from Galicia. A biography about Rabbi Avigdor Aptowitzer may be found in
the book Morei Galicia; however, there is no reference to siblings.

Thank you in advance.

The 35th IAJGS International Conference is just around the corner!
For a significant discount (and a chance to win great prizes in our
drawing), register now. "Early Bird Special" ends on May 6th! Visit
www.iajgs2015.org to register.

Treat yourself to the wonderful pre-Conference Shabbaton on the
Friday-Saturday, July 3-4 weekend preceding the Conference. Enjoy an
adventure in exploring the sights and sounds of Jerusalem via three
unique tour opportunities.

"Exploration Sunday" on July 5 offers you the superior options of
either visiting extraordinary research archives or taking
fascinating tours of Jerusalem and Israel.

Monday's full day of programming sets the pace for a peerless
schedule of sessions, including one that offers how-to's for those
attending their first IAJGS Conference.

SIG luncheons and other SIG meetings will be held each day,
bolstered by valuable sessions on Jewish communities throughout
the world that dot the daily schedules. BOF meetings will be
announced soon, with over 25 BOF groups planning time together
this year!

Guide to the Perplexed: Nearly every day features a valuable
"Breakfast with Experts" for the rare opportunity to sit round
the table with a genealogical wizard and personally ask
questions. The answers you'll hear can spark new directions for
your research. Experts will also be volunteering for one-on-one
"break down brick wall" meetings for those in need.

Our honored Keynote speaker Rabbi Israel Meir Lau will share his
moving plea to continue to tell the story of the Shoah, striving
to document our family's past as an inspiration for the next
generations to come.

The Convention's impressive roster of skilled, informative and
fascinating lecturers >from across the globe will present a
treasure of new ideas, new sources to research, and new tools
for advanced and novice genealogists alike. View the full program
at www.iajgs2015.org

Our closing banquet will be enhanced by the presence of Dick
Eastman, genealogy's renowned blogger.

Come join us in the matchless city of Jerusalem for the momentous,
exciting 35th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy.
Enjoy new and renewed friendships, and a rich appreciation of the
land, its resources and its people. For full Convention details:
