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

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!

new vital records from Zabno #galicia

Howard Fink
 

I am very pleased to announce that JRI-Poland has just acquired more
vital records >from the town of Zabno. This is another town whose
records are held at the Tarnow branch of the Polish State Archives.

We are fortunate that the Director of that branch has been very
proactive in moving records >from the Civil Records Offices into the
Archives in order to comply with the change in privacy laws last year.
For those who were not aware, the change made Marriage and Death
records public after 80 years rather than 100 years, as was previously
the case. So this year, for all towns in Poland these records suddenly
became accessible >from 1915-1935. The reasons you have not seen
announcements for very many towns yet are:
1) The new law states that records offices may take up to 10 years to
comply with this change, and
2) once the records arrive at a branch of the Archives they still have to
be indexed, and JRI-Poland has to pay for that work.

We have just added:
Marriages: 1914, 1918, 1920-1935
Deaths: 1920-1935

Until JRI-Poland recovers the cost we have spent to acquire these
records this new data will not be available online. However, those who
make qualified contributions will get access to this data right away.

The Qualifying Contribution required to access the data before it has
been fully funded (and becomes available online) is $40.

You can see our project status online:
http://jri-poland.org/town/zabno.htm
Note that our previous project for this town covering the years
1906-1913 is still not completely funded either.

Information about various ways of contributing can be found at:
http://jri-poland.org/support.htm
Please indicate the allocation of your contribution as "Zabno PSA".

Please contact me if you would like to know if a (short) list of your
specific family members are present in this new data.

JGS of Maryland July 24 program #general

Susan Steeble
 

Speaker: Israel Pickholtz
Title: “Beyond a Reasonable Doubt: What We Know vs. What We Can Prove”
Date and Time: Sunday, July 24, 2016, 1:30 p.m.
Location: Hadassah meeting room, 3723 Old Court Rd (Dumbarton Offices entrance),
Pikesville, MD

Please join us on Sunday, July 24, 2016, for our next program, “Beyond a Reasonable
Doubt: What We Know vs. What We Can Prove,” presented by Israel Pickholtz.

What do you do when the hard proofs just aren’t there, but you are as
sure as you can be of what they would show if you could find them? If
you fold your hands and wait, you may never get anywhere with your
research, but if you accept your suppositions as fact, they may never
be questioned again—not by you, and certainly not by your research
heirs. This presentation will use examples >from the east Galician single-surname
Pikholz Project to consider when you need to determine whether what you know
is beyond a reasonable doubt and if that is, indeed, good enough.

Israel Pickholtz, a native of Pittsburgh, made aliyah in 1973 from
Chicago and now lives in Jerusalem. He has done serious family
research for nearly 20 years. His flagship work is the Pikholz
Project, a single-surname project to identify and reconnect all
Pikholz descendants. Alongside his work as a professional genealogist,
taking clients in Israel and abroad, he became heavily involved in
genetic genealogy in 2013. He manages test kits of more than 80 family
members, at last count. Last summer, he published a book, ENDOGAMY:
One Family, One People (available at www.endogamy-one-family.com). He
blogs at http://allmyforeparents.blogspot.com.

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. Refreshments
will be available. Please check our web site at www.jgsmd.org for
late updates and for the time, location, and program of future meetings.

First Pamela Weisberger Memorial Lecture at the 36th IAJGS International Conference-Samuel Kassow, Ph.D. Speaker #poland

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles (JGSLA) is reminding
the JRI-PL subscriber conference attendees about the first JGSLA Pamela
Weisberger Memorial Lecture to be given at the 36th IAJGS International
Conference on Jewish Genealogy on Monday 8 August at 8:30 PM
(www.IAJGS2016.org). The speaker is the distinguished Samuel Kassow,
Ph.D.
The title of the lecture is: History and Catastrophe: The Secret
Warsaw Ghetto Archive of Emanuel Ringelblum.

During World War II Jews resisted not only with guns but also with pen
and paper. Even in the face of death they left "time capsules" full of
documents that they buried under the rubble of ghettos and death camps.
The Ringelblum Archive in the Warsaw Ghetto buried thousands of
documents. But of the 60 people who worked on this national mission,
only three survived. This will be their story.

Professor Kassow is the Charles Northam Professor of History at Trinity
College and the Jacob Kronhill Visiting Scholar in Eastern European
Jewish History at YIVO. He received his Ph.D. >from Princeton University
and is the author of several books, including Who Will Write Our History?
which was a finalist for the National Jewish Book Award and which has been
translated into 7 languages. Roberta Grossman and Nancy Spielberg are
currently making a documentary film based on this book. Professor Kassow
was involved with the development of the POLIN Museum of Jewish History
in Warsaw, Poland and continues to be involved with the Museum. A child
of Holocaust survivors, Professor Kassow was born in a Displaced Persons
camp in Germany.

This is the first in a planned series of lectures to honor the memory of
Pamela Weisberger who passed away 25 September 2015 following a brief
illness. Pamela had a major impact on the lives of many in the global
Jewish genealogical community. She dedicated herself to numerous
genealogical pursuits including the important work of promoting and
producing exceptional programs for JGSLA, and to the service of its
members by assuming a leadership role in the society >from 2003-2015.

While acting as JGSLA's Vice- President, Programming, for over a decade,
she was also the president of Gesher Galicia for eight years. Pamela's
energy was boundless and she gave fully to both organizations.
A dynamic speaker with contagious enthusiasm, she also lectured
extensively at genealogical conferences and to societies in different
parts of the world. She was a superstar in the world of genealogy;
her passion for genealogy was an inspiration to many of us. Pamela's
creativity and flair for programming for JGSLA is commemorated
with the JGSLA Pamela Weisberger Memorial Lecture (PWML).

The PWML hopes to be able to sponsor a series of distinguished lectures
of Jewish genealogical interest at future genealogical conferences. For
more information, see www.jgsla.org.

We hope to see you at the JGSLA-PWML on 8 August.

Hi All,

I have submitted 4 images into Viewmate that are all part of the same original

understand that this is some work and thank whomever helps out with this greatly.

Images 49368, 49369, 49370 & 49371, are all >from the same original image but had to
broken up as per size limit. I believe this image is in reference to the Marriage
