Searching: SMILOVITZ/SMILOVITCH from Polatsk #belarus

Anne SCOTTE <anne.scotte@...>
 

Our grandfather Isaac SMILOVITZ (SMIILOVITCH ?) was born in Polotsk
(Polatsk, Polock) Belarus in december 1888. He emigrated >from Russia
to Paris France in August 1912. We don't know if this was a first step
before going to America but he married with our grandmother a few
months later in Paris and they stayed in France until their deportation
in 1942.
We were told that Isaac lost his mother Slata BAGARIEL and one of his
sisters (firstname unknown) during the great famine. Another version
said they died during a pogrom. We don't know anything about the
father.(Simon SMILOVITZ).
Isaac had one brother and three sisters who emigrated to America.
Chaim (born about 1885). He was a butcher in Saint-Louis.
Bela Rivet (?) born about 1881 spouse Mayeur (?) in Saint-Louis.
Chaya (born about 1892) and Simone (born about 1890) dressmaker.
For Chaya and Simone, we just know the destination America and nothing else.

We never had any contact with this family and would be very very
grateful if anybody could help us. The descendants of Isaac are now
all French.
Thank you very much for your help.

Radun 1874 Residents' List has been translated #lithuania

Jrbaston
 

I've just uploaded to the LitvakSIG Lida District Research Group
site the translation of the 1874 Residents' List >from the town
of Radun. There are 935 separate listings.

Because this is a Residents' List, it is different >from the Revision
n and Family Lists we have seen. While everyone in the list is living
in Radun at the time of enumeration, many of those listed are >from
other places, such as Lida, Eishishki, Voronovo and nearby villages.
This list includes ages, occupation, and, in many cases, house
numbers.

This is the first of a group of new Lida District translations -
several others are in the pipeline and I will be making them
available in the coming weeks.

While this list is currently accessible only to participants
in the LitvakSIG Lida District Research Group (DRG), after at
least 18 months it will be publicly searchable in the All Lithuania
Database (ALD) and JewishGen Belarus Database. A qualifying
contribution of $100 US will guarantee you access to the Lida DRG
site for five years. This will offer you not only new translations
such as this one, but files containing all translations of records
from the Lida District made in the last 20 years!
To contribute, go to:

USCIS Fee Increases--More

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Hi

 

It is vitally important to have an avalanche of comments opposing the obscene proposed fees by the United States Citizenship and Information Services (USCIS). There have been previous postings on this forum. It is still not to late to go to the coalition website:

https://www.recordsnotrevenue.com/  to read about it and send in your comments to the USCIS portal online “under make your voice heard”.  The deadline is December 16! Please share with your members to also go to the portal and send in a message. Many comment opposing this is necessary if we have a chance of defeating this.

 

The Washington Post had an article on this today, see: https://www.washingtonpost.com/history/2019/12/05/genealogy-boom-has-hit-roadblock-trump-administration-plans-huge-fee-hikes-immigration-records/

I had better luck reading it on Chrome than Firefox browsers.

Hello,
This is certainly disappointing.

Let me answer please as a French women active on Gersig with half of my
ancestors being German and the other one Alsatian
1. First going to San Diego is very far >from France
2. I suppose that many of the French speaking people are not so good at
English and do not imagine going to a conference fully in English
3. it is true that I never saw an interesting message on this forum.
Because we use other routes probably such as the French Jewish genealogical
societies or because French genealogy is so much easier than in Germany
because all is digitalized ?

But perhaps you were targeting the American audience potentially interested
in their French roots (not so frequent I would say in my modest opinion)

Have a great day,

Abraham Blum <abraham.blum@...>
 

Dear Rosanne and Pierre,

First of all, thousand thanks for the dedicated work you two have put into
the French SIG for years and years!

I was thinking what could have contributed to the decline in the once so
active SIG. Knowing Pierre's age (like mine), one reason could be the
retirement of older hobby-genealogists and the lack of young people
joining our community.

Furthermore: I assume that many, perhaps most, French SIGgers are not
living in the USA and therefore not so able to attend IAJGS Conferences. I
remember the times, when more people were asking for help and were also
given advice. It would be a pity to let the French SIG die "due to natural
causes". Is this ageing process occurring also in other SIGs?
Unable to help, I can only hope you will find after all members able and
ready to take up responsibilities.

Abraham Blum, Israel

Dear FrenchSIG members,

The time is growing closer for any possible papers, thoughts for
meetings,=C2=A0 >from FrenchSIG members at this coming year's IAJGS Conferen=
ce
in San Diego CA.

We have close to 1000 members, and it is very discouraging to your
Coordinators to have no responses >from anyone on our list! How many of
you are considering attending?=C2=A0 Is there any reason for us to even
schedule a Meeting, Luncheon? We would love to have some of you
willing to step up to learn the ropes for taking over as Coordinators,
Moderators! We have not had a Webmaster in a few years, because no one
is volunteering.

If interest in French research is so low perhaps we should just let this
SIG die.=C2=A0 Is that what you would all like?

Please let us know your thoughts on these matters?=C2=A0 Is there anything
that you would like the SIG to do or participate in please let us know
ASAP! Pierre has been very busy adding new database material.

We are still hoping to hear >from some of you, so that we can make
Conference arrangements before it is too late!

French SIG #France RE: frenchsig digest: December 01, 2019 #france

Abraham Blum <abraham.blum@...>
 

Dear Rosanne and Pierre,

First of all, thousand thanks for the dedicated work you two have put into
the French SIG for years and years!

I was thinking what could have contributed to the decline in the once so
active SIG. Knowing Pierre's age (like mine), one reason could be the
retirement of older hobby-genealogists and the lack of young people
joining our community.

Furthermore: I assume that many, perhaps most, French SIGgers are not
living in the USA and therefore not so able to attend IAJGS Conferences. I
remember the times, when more people were asking for help and were also
given advice. It would be a pity to let the French SIG die "due to natural
causes". Is this ageing process occurring also in other SIGs?
Unable to help, I can only hope you will find after all members able and
ready to take up responsibilities.

Abraham Blum, Israel

1. 2020 IAJGS Conference

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Subject: 2020 IAJGS Conference
From: Rosanne Leeson <rdleeson@...>
Date: Sat, 30 Nov 2019 14:18:38 -0800
X-Message-Number: 1

Dear FrenchSIG members,

The time is growing closer for any possible papers, thoughts for
meetings,=C2=A0 >from FrenchSIG members at this coming year's IAJGS Conferen=
ce
in San Diego CA.

We have close to 1000 members, and it is very discouraging to your
Coordinators to have no responses >from anyone on our list! How many of
you are considering attending?=C2=A0 Is there any reason for us to even
schedule a Meeting, Luncheon? We would love to have some of you
willing to step up to learn the ropes for taking over as Coordinators,
Moderators! We have not had a Webmaster in a few years, because no one
is volunteering.

If interest in French research is so low perhaps we should just let this
SIG die.=C2=A0 Is that what you would all like?

Please let us know your thoughts on these matters?=C2=A0 Is there anything
that you would like the SIG to do or participate in please let us know
ASAP! Pierre has been very busy adding new database material.

We are still hoping to hear >from some of you, so that we can make
Conference arrangements before it is too late!

Rosanne Leeson
Pierre Hahn
Co-Coordinators French SIG

San Diego #france

Cher Rosanne et Pierre,

So sorry that I didn't reply. I thought your request was just for
people submitting papers. Yes, I look forward to a meeting, possibly a
luncheon, etc. It's always nice to meet other researchers with
ancestors in France. Whilst I was in France earlier this year, I met a
distant cousin who I found through JewishGen when she submitted a query
and I recognized the names of people in whom she was interested. We
walked around a part of Paris, had a good chat and some delicious food. 
It was great to meet her.

I'm looking forward to being at the conference, although I'm not
offering to be a Coordinator or Moderator and certainly not a
Webmaster!!  Too old for any of that!!  I just like to be there.

All the best. See you in San Diego. 
Myra Waddell

Rosanne,

Unfortunately we will be on a family vacation in Montreal during the beginning
of the conference. Hopefully some young blood will surface to take over the group.

Re: What is a "personal marriage certificate"? #galicia

A "personal marriage certificate" might refer to the ketubah, the Jewish
marriage contract that most Jewish couples sign at their weddings.
