Announcing a Newly-Formed JGS in California #general

jan meisels allen <janmallen@...>
 

Dear Jewish Genners:

A new JGS has been formed in the Conejo Valley and Ventura County (and
surrounding areas) located in California- known as the Jewish Genealogical
Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County -JGSCV- for short. For
those not familiar with the area, it has one of the largest-growing and
flourishing Jewish populations in the west, estimated at over 10,000 Jews
residing here. The Conejo Valley starts just west of the boundary line of
the City of Los Angeles and extends into the eastern part of Ventura County;
and all of Ventura County, which is the California County between Los
Angeles and Santa Barbara Counties.

An organizing committee of local, accomplished, Jewish genealogists has been
meeting since May and has organized, and founded the new JGS. We welcome
anyone interested in Jewish genealogy to attend our meetings and to join the
new society.

Four exciting programs are planned for the remainder of the year. The first
program meeting is scheduled for September 25 >from 2-4 pm- watch for the
announcement posted on the JewishGen Discussion Group shortly! All four
meetings are being held at Temple Adat Elohim in Thousand Oaks, CA which is
generously co-sponsoring our initial four programs to help launch this new
organization. While there is no fee to attend the meetings, membership dues
are $25 single, $30 for a family of two residing in the same household,
enabling us to present programs and develop a library of books, maps and
journals related to Jewish genealogy. Those joining the JGS now, will have
their membership dues apply through the end of 2006.

Anyone interested in learning more about the JGSCV and to be placed on the
e-mail list for future meeting information, please contact Jan Meisels
Allen, at janmallen@....

ViewMate translation from German requested (VM6729) #austria-czech

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

I would be grateful for a translation >from German of the abused,
deteriorating postcard I have posted to ViewMate

(http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/toview.html) as file VM6729.

The direct link to this file is:

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6729.

The front of the postcard is a portrait of a young man in a WWI uniform, who
is almost certainly a relative of mine, though his relation to my family was
not known even two generations ago. I hope the translation, address stamp
Taborstrasse 53, and studio (Atelier "Stella," Wien XX Wallensteinstrasse
23) will facilitate his identification. Please respond privately.

Thanks very much and best regards,

Dear Members,

I have just come across this site - it carries some excellent
information, including short biographies. Many of the names are
Jewish. Importantly, it also has excellent links.

I hope it proves helpful to some.

Unpublished phone number #general

mhlcswc2@...
 

If this problem occurred in Baltimore, my home town, I would recommend
putting an advertisement in the Detroit Jewish weekly, or whatever their
publication is called and simultaneously contacting a Jewish funeral
parlor to see if an organization exists such as one does in Baltimore
for former German immigrants or Holocaust survivors. Doing that would
probably give them access to your request and they would be free to act
upon it if they were desirous of doing so.

Good luck in your research.

Ira Leviton
 

Dear Cousins,

Howie Axelrod asked: Can anyone tell me what the term "do" in the
family name column of the EI manifest means. It appears to indicate a
reference to the name above it.>>>

I answer: It's short for "ditto" (meaning the same).
