Re: Jewish Given Names Questions #bessarabia

Gary Mokotoff
 

As to Hebrew and English name equivalents of Eastern European given names,
first realize that when a person had two given names (Example:
Froim-Menashe) the second name was his everyday name (name by which he was
known) and the first name was his religious name (shem kodesh).

So Froim_Menashe was known in life as Menashe and would have chosen as his
English name some "M" name such as Max.

Other names:
Manil (some "M" name)
Mordko (Mordechai, or other "M' name such as Max, Morris)
Jos (Joe, Joseph)
Shmul (Sam, Samuel)
Pinkhas (Paul, Peter, etc.)
Gersh-Leyb (Louis)
Feyge (Fanny)
Zislya (not sure)
Mariem (Miriam)
Rukhlya (Rachel)
Aria-Leyb (Louis)

Dear SIGgers,
Does anyone know if there are records of emigration >from Germany in
1930? My relative, Clara PHILIPSBORN, who lived on
Prinzregentenstrasse in Berlin in the 1920's, is documented as living
in Madrid and working as a laboratory assistant at the University from
September, 1930. I'd like to know more about the circumstances of her
emigration.

How to attend the IAJGS conference when you can't get to Seattle #courland #latvia

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!

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!

Janette Silverman, Chuck Weinstein and Phyllis Grossman
Conference Co-Chairs
