Correction in information about The Dove Flyer #austria-czech

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

In our previous message, we incorrectly identified Deputy Consul General
Ravit Baer as Consul General. As previously announced, Ms. Baer, a
career diplomat in the Israeli foreign service, served
in Europe and Africa before becoming Israel's Deputy Consul General to
the Pacific Northwest. We are honored to have her present the August 11
screening of the acclaimed Israeli movie "The Dove
Flyer," and apologize for incorrectly identifying her.

"The Dove Flyer" will be shown as part of a Jewish film festival that
has been curated for the conference by leading Jewish film scholar and
teacher of cinema Dr. Eric Goldman. The film is based on Eli Amir's
blockbuster novel of the same name, brings to life the fragile, doomed
world of the Baghdad Jewish community in 1950.

In addition, as at previous conferences, key lectures and presentations will
be made available through LIVE! a real-time video streaming service after up
to 90 days after the conference. It's not too late to register for the
conference or to purchase LIVE! Visit the conference website,
www.iajgs2016.org , for more information about all aspects of the
conference.

We're looking forward to seeing so many of you in Seattle August 7-12.

of JewishGen's Success! Stories. These stories take us to Argentina,
Germany, Austria, Poland, and the Netherlands. You can access these
stories >from the "About Us" button on our website or by following this

Suzanne Reisman finds two old photos of an unknown baby after her
grandmother passes away. Silvia Rodriguez translates letters >from the
late 1930s for her friend Leda Altura -- letters written in German,
containing desperate pleas for help in emigrating >from Vienna to
Argentina. Peter Vanlaw inherits old letters and photos >from his
mother, giving him the urge to find out more about his Rehfisch
family, and to identify all the nameless faces that appeared in those
photos.

This issue was prepared by JewishGen volunteers -- Nancy Siegel, Editor

How to attend the IAJGS conference when you can't get to Seattle #austria-czech

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

My Co-Chairs and I know >from the emails we get, that there are so many
people who want to attend the upcoming conference in Seattle, Aug 7-12,
but who just can't fit the conference into their calendar or their
budget. Although virtually attending the conference isn't as fabulous
as being there, it does provide access to about 90% of all of the
conference sessions. We also know that many of the attendees are
frustrated at not being to attend every session, and since there are
over 235 sessions, that's obviously physically impossible, so we have
solutions for you.

There are two ways to hear/see what's happening at the conference, and
they work well together. I'll briefly describe each of them, since
their titles may not be descriptive enough. The first is LIVE! This
provides live streaming of sessions by some of our most popular
speakers. This means that if you have the time, you can watch (and
hear) the sessions as they are being presented, as if you were there!
The conference is in Seattle, Washington, so the time of each session is
listed in Pacific Daylight Time (UTC/GMT -7 hours). If you don't have
time to tune in while the session is streaming, no worries. After the
conference is over, you 90 days to access the session "on demand".

The other way to hear the sessions is to purchase the audio/slides
recording. Almost all of the sessions at the conference are being
recording (voice only) with the slides the presenter is using. Some
presenters do not have their slides being recorded, in which case, the
recording of that session is only audio. If you purchase this, you will
receive the whole package a few weeks after the conference is over and
be able to listen to the presentation and see the slides as your
leisure. Not all presentations that are on LIVE! are having audio
recordings made.

To purchase LIVE! and/or the audio and slides, go to the IAJGS 2016
website (http://www.iajgs2016.org/) then, under the registration tab,
Select New Registration;
Click "Go to Registration Form (for starting out)" near the bottom;
Click the gray New Registration button;
Enter your personal information and click Continue;
Select 5. Full LIVE! only (not attending in Seattle) or
7. Full LIVE! & Full Audio/slides (not attending in Seattle) and
continue to the end.

Of course, if you are attending the conference and want to purchase the
packages, there are options on the menu above to do that as well.

Looking forward to seeing many of you in Seattle!

event (concert?) in Vilna 1922 #general

Paula Eisenstein Baker
 

I'd be grateful for help with an event described in a newspaper
advertisement that I've posted to Viewmate. The ad appeared in a Vilna
newspaper in 1922.

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM49413

I think I can determine what musical works were performed, but I don't
understand whether or not the evening was principally one of ballet,
and a complete translation would be a great help!

Private replies, I think; this is probably *not* of interest to the
entire group.

SCHARF, Max - USA #general

Rony Golan
 

Dear All,

I am looking for information regarding Max SCHARF, who was born on
April 12, 1894 in Kolomiyya (then: Austria) who came to the USin 1911.

I found his entry to the US and his naturalization papers in New York.

In his naturalization papers he stated that he was married with Lena
b. 15.9.1898. I also found his WWI and WWII draft cards.

from all material I gathered we know that in 1921 he was single and
lived in 21 East 104th St. NYC.

In 1928 he was married with Lena and lived at 1643 Madison Av. NYC

In 1942 they lived at 3028 W 23rd St., Kings county, NYC

I could not find Max & Lena together on the 1940 cencus, nor I was
able to find any children, although I was told that Max had a
daughter.

I could not find a marriage record for them nor a probate file when
Max died on JAnuary 1, 1966, nor an obituary.

I will appreciate ideas of what else can be done.

Thank you,

new vital records from Zabno #general

Howard Fink
 

I am very pleased to announce that JRI-Poland has just acquired more
vital records >from the town of Zabno. This is another town whose records
are held at the Tarnow branch of the Polish State Archives.

We are fortunate that the Director of that branch has been very proactive
in moving records >from the Civil Records Offices into the Archives in
order to comply with the change in privacy laws last year. For those who
were not aware, the change made Marriage and Death records public
after 80 years rather than 100 years, as was previously the case. So this
year, for all towns in Poland these records suddenly became accessible
from 1915-1935. The reasons you have not seen announcements for
very many towns yet are:
1) The new law states that records offices may take up to 10 years to
comply with this change, and
2) once the records arrive at a branch of the Archives they still have to
be indexed, and JRI-Poland has to pay for that work.

We have just added:
Marriages: 1914, 1918, 1920-1935
Deaths: 1920-1935

Until JRI-Poland recovers the cost we have spent to acquire these
records this new data will not be available online. However, those who
make qualified contributions will get access to this data right away.

The Qualifying Contribution required to access the data before it has
been fully funded (and becomes available online) is $40.

You can see our project status online:
http://jri-poland.org/town/zabno.htm
Note that our previous project for this town covering the years 1906-1913
is still not completely funded either.

Information about various ways of contributing can be found at:
http://jri-poland.org/support.htm
Please indicate the allocation of your contribution as "Zabno PSA".

Please contact me if you would like to know if a (short) list of your
specific family members are present in this new data.

Passenger list for Aron Rosett #general

Walter Rosett
 

I have many records related to my great uncle Adolphe Rosette aka Arnold
Rosett b 1868 (abt) except a passenger list or naturalization record.
Supposedly he arrived and was married in 1888 (>from 1900 Census). I suspect
that he lived in NY until 1895 then moved to Baltimore. He died in
Baltimore in 1916. Later his widow Sophie Woloseff stated she was
naturalized by marriage 1 Jun 1890. Sophie was a cousin and her mother was
a Rosett. I could find no marriage record in NY. It is possible that he
married before leaving the old country. Needless to say all names and dates
may not be accurate.

The only record I could find that might be related to his arrival was a
Hamburg passenger list for Aron Rosett b 1868 departing 8 Sept 1889 >from
Hamburg to NY by way of Glasgow on the ship, Coblenz (record on
Ancestry.com). He was >from "Wittebsk, Russland" which matches the origin of
his brother Joshua who arrived in 1891 in NY >from Vitebsk through Hamburg.
No other record matches my relative this closely. Unfortunately I cannot
find any record of US arrival at any port, or ship >from Glasgow or Canada.
The ship did not sink since it was in use for years after. I wonder if
someone has more knowledge, luck or ability to help out. In addition, in
the 1900 census he was listed as naturalized and although I can find an
index card with minimal information in Maryland and one in NY that could
possibly related I can find no actual record. The one service said it
would be in Philadelphia and Philadelphia said it would be in Maryland. The
pages of other records and newspaper articles about him offer no useful
information in this regard.
