As we are reaching the home stretch, we are putting the final touches on
the program for the Jewish Genealogy Conference in Jerusalem. We have made
arrangements with the Chevra Kadisha [Burial Society] to enable you to
search for where your relatives might be buried in Jerusalem [only]. We are
posting a downloadable .pdf on our website:
http://www.isragen.org.il/ROS/Form-Jeru-Bur-Soc.pdf
This file should be printed, filled out and returned to us as instructed on
the form. When you arrive at the Conference, the information will be
waiting for you. We will continue this service after the conference as
well, but preference until then will be given to those registered for the
conference.

Yad Vashem has informed us that they have extended their hours for research
during the conference. Their hours for the week of 4 - 9 July will be as
follows:
Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday: 8:30 am-7:00 pm. Storerooms
(containing most of the books and all the archival material) close at 5:00
pm. but the reading room will remain open until 7:00pm.
Monday: 8:30 am-5:00 pm. Storerooms close at 3:30 pm.
Friday: 8:30-12:30. Storerooms close at 11:00.
Note: The names database and computerized indexes are available on the
computers in the reading room, and in extra rooms which will be opened
according to need. The information desk at the entrance to the reading room
will be able to direct you to these overflow rooms.
Our volunteers will be available to help you with foreign languages.

You can always find the latest news of the conference by going to our

Re: Specific meaning of "ploshch" in Yiddish and/or Russian #general

Stan Goodman <SPAM_FOILER@...>
 

On Sun, 6 Jun 2004 20:48:35 UTC, Dick@Plotz.Com opined:

After many years of idle speculation, I am finally closing in on
the exact origins of my family name. The name, which appears on
my great-grandfather's Russian army discharge papers as "PLOTZ or
PLOST", >from Pazelva, now Zelva, near Ukmerge, former Kovno
Guberniya, Lithuania, appears in Beider under PLOST as arising
from "ploshch", meaning, in Yiddish, a "double seam". This seems
reasonable enough to me, although there is no family tradition of
any tailors, and it's easy to see how "ploshch" could be
transcribed as either PLOTZ or PLOST.

I'm trying to determine just what would be meant by the term
"ploshch" in Yiddish or perhaps in Russian, which would seem to be
the likely origin of the Yiddish term. My daughter, a costumer
and fiber artist, is unfamiliar with the term "double seam," and
suggests that it might refer to either a French seam or a flat-
felled seam, which are oversewn for appearance or for strength,
respectively. The difference might give some indication of what
kind of tailor my ancestors were.

For what it's worth: In Russian, "ploshche" means "flatter" (comparative of
"flat").
