a great software tool (i wish we had) #general

Marty Meyers <meyers01@...>
 

Hi,

Working with census images that are not indexed by name or even soundex can
be very time consuming, as any who have tried it will attest.

Would it be nice if someone could build a tool
that did the following?

A hypothetical procedure for find an enumeration district, given an address:

A: I take the address and enter it to get a map, with a star for the
location I'm searching for
(note: this exists today with various mapping web sites)

B: I have a definition for a particular enumeration district for a given
year, for example:
City of Chicago, First Ward; 5th Precinct. Bounded by Madison, Dearborn,
Van Buren, South Clark.

C: I enter the names of the four streets (madison, dearborn, van buren and
south clark) and the
software draws 4 lines corresponding to those streets, the intersection of
which defines the
enumeration district.

D: If the ED encloses the point in part A, I'm done!

Do any of our computer gurus out there think this is feasible?

Even better yet: What if I could click on (or cut/paste) the description
of an enumeration district and
have the ED mapped out?

Any of our computer gurus out there want to comment on feasibility?

Cheers,

Marty Meyers

Susan:

Yetta is often short for Henrietta.
Hendel is often short for Hanna or Johanna.

In Silesia and other German-speaking places in the 18th-19th centuries
the names of women were often registered in diminutive form. In fact,
they often appear that way on tombstones. These are two examples.
Others include:

Lene/Loene for Helene
Nanny for Johanna
Rosel for Rosalie
Dorel for Dorothea/Doris
Sorel for Sara
Rieke for Friederike
Pine for Philippine

I have located the convoy on which my grandmother was deported. It was
Convoy #75. Can someone tell me where I may find more info about that
particular convoy. She was arrested in St. Etienne, France, then went onto
Drancy and deported May 30, 1944 to Auschwitz.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Searching For HARRISON and CASH #unitedkingdom

I am searching for relatives by the names of HARRISON and CASH that came
to the United States >from Manchester, England sometime in the second
half of the 19th Century.

Jacob HARRISON ( - 1906) was married to Leah CASH (1827-1907). They had
eight children, Annie HARRISON (1878-1933), Israel HARRISON, Marks
HARRISON (1869-1923), Harris HARRISON, Levi HARRISON, Isaac HARRISON,
Louis HARRISON and Morris HARRISON.

Annie HARRISON married Louis (Dan) COHEN (1873-1933); Israel HARRISON
married Jenny and had two children, Alan and Hilda; Marks HARRISON
married Sarah MATHIAS (1868-1957) and had three children, Alan, Daniel
and David; Harris HARRISON married Rebecca and had three children, Mark,
Henrietta and Jeanette; the wives and children of the other siblings of
Jacob and Leah are unknown. I believe the family settled first in New
York with at least one child, Annie, moving with her husband to
Philadelphia and then to Waynesburg, PA. I am eager to learn where I
might find the vital records on these individuals in Manchester and
information on their dispersion in the United States. I would be
exceedingly grateful for any leads.

I am searching for relatives by the names of HARRISON and CASH that came
to the United States >from Manchester, England sometime in the second
half of the 19th Century.

Jacob HARRISON ( - 1906) was married to Leah CASH (1827-1907). They had
eight children, Annie HARRISON (1878-1933), Israel HARRISON, Marks
HARRISON (1869-1923), Harris HARRISON, Levi HARRISON, Isaac HARRISON,
Louis HARRISON and Morris HARRISON.

Annie HARRISON married Louis (Dan) COHEN (1873-1933); Israel HARRISON
married Jenny and had two children, Alan and Hilda; Marks HARRISON
married Sarah MATHIAS (1868-1957) and had three children, Alan, Daniel
and David; Harris HARRISON married Rebecca and had three children, Mark,
Henrietta and Jeanette; the wives and children of the other siblings of
Jacob and Leah are unknown. I believe the family settled first in New
York with at least one child, Annie, moving with her husband to
Philadelphia and then to Waynesburg, PA. I am eager to learn where I
might find the vital records on these individuals in Manchester and
information on their dispersion in the United States. I would be

Re: Jewish community around Oxford #unitedkingdom

Ellen

As far as I'm aware the first Jewish Community was established around 1842.
Today as you as you probably there are 2 active congregations:

Oxford Jewish Congregations

Oxford Jewish Congregation (Progressive Group)

The Bodlean Library in oxford (http://www.bodley.ox.ac.uk/)does hold Jewish
Marriage Records >from 1850

I welcome this new SIG. Hello to everyone.

My great grandfather, according to family legend, left Prussia to go to
England and study at Oxford. I know that Jews were not allowed to
matriculate at Oxford in the 1850's, so it comes as no surprise that I can't
document his being there.

But I am curious. Was there a Jewish community in the vicinity of Oxford in
the 1850's? I'd appreciate learning more about this, if you have some
knowledge about this to share.

Ukraine SIG Conference Update #ukraine

Flo Elman
 

For those of you who will be attending the 2002 Conference in Toronto, this
is a reminder that our Ukraine SIG General Meeting will be held on Monday,
August 5th, at 3:30 - 4:45pm. At that time, you'll have the opportunity to
meet members of our Steering Committee, and learn about our current
projects. Your own ideas for future research will be most welcomed.

Olga Muzychuk, head of the Historical Archives of the Ukraine, will be our
guest and speaker at the Ukraine SIG luncheon on Wednesday, August 7th,
2002. Olga will not give a formal presentation then, as her Monday lecture
will cover what she has to say. However, she will be happy to informally
answer questions relating to the Central State Historical Archive of Ukraine
in Kiev. This is a wonderful chance for you to get an inside picture on how
the archives function.

I look forward to meeting you in August!

Don't Miss the JEWISH GENEALOGICAL EVENT OF THE YEAR #ukraine

JGS of Canada (Toronto) <info@...>
 

Only a month to go until the 22nd IAJGS International Conference on Jewish
Genealogy. If you haven’t registered yet here are a few things to consider.

1. The Event
Look at the Conference Programme at www.jgstoronto2002.ca. There has never
been as comprehensive a programme. It features some of our old standby
speakers plus a whole new range of exciting experts to entertain, enthral
and educate. As some recent news article have said, the heroes of Jewish
Genealogy are congregating in Toronto!

2. The Venue
Toronto is a great city and very safe. The Hotel setting for the Conference
is unbelievable with over 35,000 sq. ft. dedicated to our Conference on a
fully secure floor accessible only to Conference attendees. Over 14 Vendors
will congregate in our Exhibition area with booths to sell books, maps,
equipment, software, and more. As always, Avotaynu and JewishGen will be
there to show you their newest items.

3. Research
The combined Resource and Computer Rooms will be the biggest ever. This
week we expect to be able to announce several new major acquisitions which
have never been available together before and will provide a major resource
for immigration research. Sample the latest software >from Family Tree
Maker, Ancestry.com and DorotTree. The Computer Room sponsor, Ancestry.com,
will provide complementary access to their incredible databases. Check your
email.

4. Galleries
This year for the first time, the Conference will delight with several
exhibitions of art and photography with a genealogical orientation. See the
family tree displays by local Jewish schools. See Jewish tapestries from
the Pomegranate Society! See genealogically inspired art >from invited
artists. See a portion of the incredible internationally renowned
photographic exhibition of life in Poland: And I Can Still See Their Faces.
Images of Polish Jews (see
http://motlc.wiesenthal.org/exhibits/faces/index.html).

5. Conference Extras
Tired after a long day? On Tuesday and Wednesday nights, you can attend the
Toronto Jewish Genealogic Film Festival. Assembled with the help of The
Toronto Jewish Film Festival, you can relax with a wide range of
documentaries, to be announced shortly. Want to get away? How about a trip
to Niagara Falls (or send your spouse who thinks genealogy is nuts!). Take
trips to archives or tour old Jewish Toronto.

6. Breakfasts and Luncheons
Join Breakfasts with the Experts Monday through Thursday. Over a
continental breakfast sit and chat with some of the top experts in a wide
range of fields. The guest experts change every day so check the Conference
programme and attend as many as you want. Also on Monday through Wednesday,
there will be two Sponsored Luncheons. Join Avotaynu to hear Gary Mokotoff’
s views on The Future of Jewish Genealogy or be entertained by German expert
Emily C. Rose with The New Berlitz Story: Uncovering the Legend. Join
JewishGen’s luncheon on Tuesday to hear Warren Blatt and Michael Tobias talk
about how to use JewishGen databases or hear Mike Getz talk about
Latvia-Lithuania-Belarus: Common Interests and Jewish Communities. On
Wednesday Go to the Ukrainian SIG luncheon and here Olga Muzychuk, director
of the Central State Historical Archives of Ukraine in Kyiv, or at the
Bohemian/Moravian (BOHMOR) SIG Luncheon, hear Peter Landé, holocaust expert
and an IAJGS Lifetime Achievement Award for his work in identifying sources
of information on Holocaust victims and survivors. LUNCHES MUST BE BOOKED
SOON SO SIGN UP NOW FOR THESE EXCITING VENUES!

7. Closing Banquet
This year’s Closing Banquet will be the best ever. A pre-banquet reception
and a full course kosher meal will tantalize your palate. Live
entertainment will delight your soul. An exciting, dynamic surprise
internationally famous speaker will challenge your mind and inspire your
devotion to Jewish genealogy! This is the culmination of the Conference and
an event not to be missed. If you haven’t registered for the banquet, go to
the Conference website and do so NOW!

8. Camaraderie and Networking
Maybe the best part of the Conference experience is the chance to meet your
fellow enthusiasts. Many a long-standing problem in research has been
solved in discussions at the many tables available to sit and schmoose.
Many a new friend has been made. All of this in the safe secure environment
of the largest Conference venue ever.

9. Easy to Get To.
Toronto is less than a day’s drive >from a huge percentage of the US
population. If you live in the northeaster or Midwest US, you have no
excuse not to attend. If you live in other parts of the US or the world, we
have fast safe connections >from all major airports. If you live in Europe,
we speak French and should be here. The English should support the
colonies. The Israeli’s should come and meet their Counsel General who will
attend. Canadians can meet some of their leaders, who will be here and help
us welcome the world.

TIME IS SHORT! If you haven’t registered for the Conference or the various
events DO SO NOW!

GENEALOGICAL WORLD AT ITS BIGGEST EVENT EVER - the 22nd IAJGS International
Conference on Jewish Genealogy!

NAEH/ASHCANASI of Yerushalayim #rabbinic

Jomarie <jomarie41@...>
 

BSD"

I have been looking into my own family and neglected my husband's
side. Rabbi Avraham C. NAEH >from what my husband has told me, was the
Rav of the Bucharian Jews and an author of quite a few s'forim on the
halachik measurements in many areas. I was told that he traces his
roots to the daughters of one of the Tzemach Tzedek.

Anyone out there familiar with the family history? There are quite a
few cousins in Israel. I do know that I had read and was told that he
was a friend and worked with Rav Yosef Chayim Sonnenfeld. I would like
to know any stories or information having to do with him other than
the ones in the book "The Heavenly City."

I would also like to know why and when he used the last name
ASHCANASIE (probably not the correct spelling.)

A very distantly related person met us and told us that the family was
traced to either Portugal or Spain. How they did that I would love to
know and >from further up they could trace to the House of Dovid- thrue
the Tzemach Tzedek . Anyone ???

know and >from further up they could trace to the House of Dovid- thrue
the Tzemach Tzedek . Anyone ???

22nd IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy #galicia

JGS of Canada (Toronto) <info@...>
 

<<Important Reminders and Deadlines>>


1. The gala banquet of Thursday night will feature an incredible speaker,
live entertainment and a couple of special surprises. The entire banquet
will be strictly kosher and all reservations must be made well in advance of
the conference itself.

2. At breakfast and lunch there will be a unique opportunity to meet and
exchange views and insights with some of the heroes of Jewish genealogy.
Listen and learn as you enjoy a continental breakfast or catered lunch.
Visit the Conference web site program page at
www.jgstoronto2002.ca/Programme.html and use the links for each day of
Conference to review the details. (Strictly Kosher meals available on
request}

3. You will not want to miss the advice and guidance available at the
conference JRI-Poland help desk, or the detailed presentation of all the
services and information available at the JewishGen web site.

4. Those of you with roots in Eastern Canada will be able to search through
the Jewish vital records of Quebec via the indexes of the Drouin collection
complied by the Jewish Genealogical Society of Montreal. Indexing the
1841-1942 Jewish vital records of Quebec in the Drouin collection was a
four-year project of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Montreal, completed
in early 2002.
