Susan Steeble
 

Speaker: Stephen Morse
Title: "One-Step Webpages: A Potpourri of Genealogical Search Tools"
Date and Time: Sunday, September 22, 2019, 1:30 p.m.
Location: Pikesville Library's meeting room, 1301 Reisterstown Rd,
Pikesville, MD

Please join us on Sunday, September 22, 2019, at 1:30 p.m. at the
Pikesville Library's meeting room, 1301 Reisterstown Road, Pikesville,
when Stephen P. Morse presents our next program: "One-Step Webpages: A
Potpourri of Genealogical Search Tools."

The One-Step website started out as an aid for finding passengers in
the Ellis Island database. Shortly afterward, it was expanded to help
with searching in the 1930 census. Over the years, it has continued to
evolve and today includes about 300 web-based tools divided into 16
separate categories, ranging >from genealogical searches to
astronomical calculations to last-minute bidding on eBay. This
presentation will describe the range of tools available and give the
highlights of each one.

Stephen Morse is the creator of the One-Step Website, for which he has
received both the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Outstanding
Contribution Award >from the International Association of Jewish
Genealogical Societies, Award of Merit >from the National Genealogical
Society, first-ever Excellence Award >from the Association of
Professional Genealogists, and two awards that he cannot pronounce
from Polish genealogical societies.
In his other life, Morse is a computer professional with a doctorate
degree in electrical engineering. He has held various research,
development, and teaching positions, authored numerous technical
papers, written four textbooks, and holds four patents. He is best
known as the architect of the Intel 8086 (the granddaddy of today's
Pentium processor), which sparked the PC revolution nearly 40 years
ago.

The program is free for paid members and $5 for non-members (applied
to membership fee when a visitor joins JGSMD) after their first
meeting. Please check our web site at www.jgsmd.org for late updates
and for the time, location, and program of future meetings.

Our memories of Phyllis Kramer z"l #warsaw #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

The JRI-Poland family is saddened in learning of the passing of Phyllis Kramer z"l, a long-time friend of and volunteer for our organization.

Others have rightly lauded her devotion to Jewish family history and genealogy, and her efforts to help on many levels. Phyllis truly set a high mark and left a legacy that we might all try to emulate in one way or another, to the best of our ability.

On a personal level, I have been a witness to Phyllis' passion, intelligence and bottomless commitment for and to the Jewish genealogical world, serving with her on an advisory board, working on a few of her educational projects and, of course, as a JRI-Poland town leader. I will miss the sparkle in her eyes and those warm hugs at the annual conferences.

May the memory of Phyllis be for a blessing.

GRUNBAUM/GRYNBAUM, Abram 1924-1945, Sosnowiec, Poland/Buchenwald #general

H Michael McTeer <mcteer@...>
 

Not quite sure how to do this. Tried searching the message files just to
make sure I had not posted previously but could not get through.

Sometime ago >from the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, I received a file
for above individual in my search for GRYNBAUM/LENCZNER relatives. Could
not make a connection with this individual. It did contain one page that
included my cousin who survived the war and came to the US. My cousin
and Abram were of the same age. I checked the Yad Vashem site to see if
he was included in their db but could find no entry.

So I post now in case someone is looking for this individual. According
to the records, Abram GRUNBAUM was born 12.5.24 (12 May 1924),
Sososnowiec, Poland. The only parental data I could find were a couple
of documents giving his 'vater' as Berek G. I could find no listing of a
mother. He lived on Marktstr ##, Sosnowiec. He had two prisoner numbers:
AU 177269 and BU 124907. Could not read (understand) all the documents
but apparently he had just been transferred to Buchenwald where he died
at "9 30" 22.3.1945 (22 Mar 1945) of "Pneumonic".

Abram GRUNBAUM did live. Abram GRUNBAUM died in a Nazi concentration
camp. Abram GRUNBAUM was a victim of the Nazis.

If this is someone you have been looking for, please contact me
privately. Not sure if I should provide the documentation or the
applicable reference numbers for the US Holocaust Memorial Museum.

I am researching a very large family PUDLIN. On several of the records of
the original immigrants, they have place of origin listed as Moscow, Russia.
This led to some skepticism on my part. However, others give place of origin
as Belioff - with various spellings.

I have found a town called Belev, in "Where Once We Walked" and the
Jewishgen Communities Database, which is located 146 miles SSW of Moscow and
133 km NE of Bryansk.

Is this place within the Pale of Settlement? If not, how likely was it to
have Jewish occupants?
Belev is located in Tula region.

According to Russian Jewish Encyclopedia town's Jewish population was as
follows:

Year 1863 - 46 Jewish residents
1910 - 87
1923 - 203 (1.9%)
1926 - 238 (1.8%)
1939 - 154

In 1910 town had synagogue and Jewish cemetery

There were several families in Tarnobrzeg with the surname STEINHARDT.
There was a tradition that all belonged to the same family. I would like to
try to contact all people whose ancestors were Steinhardt >from Tarnobrzeg,
in order ro compare our family trees and/or DNA, to verify if this is true.

Thank you
