Lea LANDAU #poland

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Siggers,

This is probably not an easy one because LANDAU is a huge tribe. My wife's
g-grandfather Isaac Saul APOTHEKER (b. 1831) married sometime at the
beginning of 1850s with Lea LANDAU(b.1831). They lived in Nowy Sacz where
all their children were born. We know a lot about the APOTHEKERs but have
no idea whatsoever about Lea and her parents or siblings.

If anyone has her on his tree we would be delighted to hear about it.

JewishGen Staffing Update - New Senior Level Position #austria-czech

Avraham Groll
 

Dear JewishGen Community,

I'm pleased to announce another staffing shift as we continue to
develop JewishGen's internal structure to make the best use of our
resources.

As of last week, Warren Blatt has assumed the new position of Senior
Genealogist for JewishGen.

In this newly created senior level position, Warren will ensure that
the JewishGen website remains reflective of genealogical standards and
that the archival transcriptions are as accurate as possible. He will
accomplish this by providing strategic direction and support to the
Senior Research Team, while also serving as the primary liaison with
technical staff for database projects.

As Senior Genealogist, Warren will also play a larger role in
representing JewishGen at various speaking engagements, and responding
to media requests for comments on Jewish genealogical issues.

Warren's technical background and genealogical expertise make him
particularly suited for this position. A software engineer before
joining the JewishGen staff in 2003, he has worked in various roles,
most recently in the position of Managing Director. Previously, as
JewishGen's Editor-in-Chief, he authored the JewishGen FAQ
("Frequently Asked Questions About Jewish Genealogy"), and dozens of
JewishGen InfoFiles. He is the author of Resources for Jewish
Genealogy in the Boston Area (Boston: JGSGB, 1996), and co-author of
Getting Started in Jewish Genealogy (Avotaynu, 1999), and other works.

Widely recognized for his contributions to Jewish genealogy, in 2004
he was awarded the International Association of Jewish Genealogical
Societies (IAJGS) Lifetime Achievement Award in Jerusalem.

Please join me in congratulating Warren on his new position.

The June Issue of the Galitzianer #austria-czech

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

Gesher Galicia is delighted to announce the release of the June 2019
issue of our quarterly research journal, the "Galitzianer." This issue
draws readers in, bringing the world of former Jewish Galicia to life
in vibrant and poignant ways.

In this issue, we learn about the Jewish woman who became the first
female physician in Czortkow. We meet the American-born countess
suspected of poisoning her formerly Jewish husband >from Kolomyja. We
relive the experience of Hasidim gathered around the table of their
beloved rebbe in Tarnow. We stroll the main street of Horodenka, with
its Jewish-owned shops, in an interview with a woman raised there
during the interwar period. And, we witness the deteriorating
conditions and harrowing existence suffered by a Jewish physician in
the Lwow Ghetto.

The June issue consists of the following articles:
- "Research Corner: University Records Revisited" by Andrew Zalewski
- "Map Corner: Lwow University on the Move" by Jay Osborn
- "A Secret in the Family: The Story behind the Headlines" by Christina Craig
- "Jewish Life in Tarnow before the Shoah" by Felicia Lederberger-Graber
- "Interview with Tosia Szechter Schneider: Witness to a World That Is No More"
- "Surviving in Lwow: A Jewish Physician's Experience" by Arthur J. Wolak

The "Galitzianer" is a membership benefit of Gesher Galicia, though
anyone is invited to submit articles on Galicia-related topics. For
more details on our submissions policy, please visit

GerSig Volunteer Projects #germany

Renee Klish \(G-Mail\)
 

Hello my Wonderful GerSig members. This is your friendly volunteer
coordinator, once more, searching for prospective indexers of records.
Thank you to all of you who have already offered to volunteer with us.

Projects are underway, ** but do not worry **, we have LOTS more of them.

Just to recap, I am looking for people to index birth, marriage and
death records >from towns in ** what is now ** eastern Germany.
At this time, we are not working on towns which have been incorporated
into Poland or other eastern countries.

** But fear not **, I have TWO other projects that may be of interest
to someone.

The first of these projects is to index resident listings in the
Wuerttemburg area. Some of the towns are as follows: Bad Buchau, Bad
Friedrichshall, Bonfeld, Buttenhausen, Creglingen, Esslingen,
Goeppingen, Haigerloch, Hechingen, Horkheim, Jebenhausen, Laupheim,
and others.

** If you are in any way interested ** please contact me.

The second project requires knowledge of ** French. We need people
to index surname adoption lists >from towns west of the Rhine. Again,
if interested, please contact me.

It is now officially summer, so enjoy it. I hope to see many of you in
Cleveland next month.

Thanks again to our current volunteers and thanks in advance to
prospective ones.

** Remember **, by helping us out in these indexing projects, you are
helping other members of this community. And, who knows what treasures
you may find in the records? They might just be the missing links in
your family tree. All the best,

Renee Klish, GerSIG Volunteer Coordinator museumcurator40@gmail.com

Solomon LATTER Death in Australia Followup and communication between Australia and Scotland #general

Sandra B Landers <SandraLanders@...>
 

First of all I want to thank everyone who responded to my request on
June 10, 2019 in trying to find out how to obtain a Death Certificate of my
Great-uncle Solomon LATTER who died in New South Wales on 28 Nov 1917 and a
photo of his headstone which I now have. I have personally thanked each
and everyone who took the time to search for me.

I especially want to publicly thank Rodney ELSFELDER for searching beyond my
initial request.

He found out that the Australian Government had a 13 page file on Solomon
LATTER online at NAA.Gov.AU, explaining why my great-uncle was in Australia
while his family was back in Glasgow, Scotland. These documents state that
he went to Australia to live for health reasons because the climate in
Scotland was not good for him. In 1915 he was attempting to become a
naturalized citizen of Australia and was denied because he couldn't prove
how he got to England without a passport or visa when he left Russia. He
died two years later and today I received his Death Certificate stating that
he died in the Sydney Hospital >from Pulmonary Tuberculosis and Tuberculous
Meningitis. He was buried the same day he died.

Now, I would like to know how long it took for this devastating news to
reach his family back in Glasgow and by what means of communication was
used at that time?

Thank you in advance for any help you can give.
