Now Available: Getting Started in Jewish Genealogy: 2016 - Edition #general

Gary Mokotoff
 

The 2016-2017 version of "Getting Started in Jewish Genealogy" is now in
print. The book is normally updated annually since 2010 because of the
dynamic growth of Jewish genealogy research. But, as the author, I concluded
that prior to now, there wasn't sufficient new material to create an updated
edition.

All sections have been reevaluated to confirm they are current. Significant
additions include Avotaynu Online, Jewish Genealogy Portal on Facebook and
the Encyclopedia of Jewish Genealogy website. The My Heritage description
has been updated to reflect the additional functionality of the site.

The book is not a beginner's guide, but a primer to demonstrate that there
is a world of records and resources to trace your Jewish family history. The
book is only 104 pages, making it quick reading, yet it holds is a wealth of
information.

Additional information, including the Table of Contents, is available at
http://www.avotaynu.com/books/GettingStarted.htm. Avotaynu offers the book
to Jewish genealogical societies at half price when at least 20 copies are
ordered. Some societies distribute the book at no charge to new members who
are starting to research their Jewish roots. Others use it as part of
beginners' workshops.

ViewMate Translation request-Russian or Polish #lithuania

J Weisman
 

Greetings Friends, and Happy New Year!

I've posted to ViewMate an image in Russian or Polish for which I need a
translation. It is the back of a photograph of my gg grandmother, Dyna
BERLIN-KRYKSZTANSKY, >from Seirijai. I'm guessing that she sat for the
photo between 1910 and 1920, but likely it was earlier.

I would be grateful for a translation of the few words in handwriting,
as well as the photographer and address.

It is on ViewMate at the following address:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM50432

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Many thanks,

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The (UK) National Archives is holding a free webinar on 11 October
18:00-19:00 BT. (Check http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/ to find out
the time in your area. Yes, for those in the UK, and other parts of the
world it will be held at the time Yom Kippur has started.but some other
parts of world it will be on before the holiday begins.)

Upon the outbreak of war, in September 1939, the lives of some 70,000
Germans and Austrians residing in the UK changed overnight as they were
classified as enemy aliens, and any individual suspected of spying or
considered to be a potential threat to Britain were subject to civilian
internment. The webinar looks at tribunal official papers, individual
internees and the camps they were placed.
