I am trying to narrow down towns on shetlseeker >from jewishgen.org.
Here is what I have:
David GUY born in Podolow, Russia on death cert but lists Kamenitz as
birth place on Naturalization papers.

His wife Lena lists her birth as Elizavetgrad, Russia. They came here
from Hamburg in 1904 into NYC listed as married.
I am not sure how to narrow down which towns come up on the search. Any
suggestions or guidelines?

Thanks,

Seeking photos of Orsha and Shklov #belarus

Dara Pearlman <pearlman99@...>
 

Dear Fellow Belarus Researchers ,

I am seeking photos of Orsha and Shklove to include in
a small booklet I am writing about my KALKIN and
KIRSON family that lived in Orsha, and my LAVKER
family that lived in Shklov circa 1910. I am
especially interested in images of the country side,
or of buildings that existed pre-1910. If you have
any photos that you could share, I would be most
grateful. I would of course include a photo credit,
and copyright notice. If you wish, I would also send
you a copy of the final booklet.

Many thanks,

DESFARDIN Society at Mt. Zion #galicia

In searching the new Mt. Zion Cemetery database, I find 101 names listed
with the society as "DESFARDIN". One of them is a Hannah STRICK, who
MAY be my ggrandmother. I've NEVER before heard the name/word
DESFARDIN, and Googling it turns up nothing useful, nor does a search of
the JewishGen web site.

Has anyone heard of this society? Can anyone help give me any info on
DESFARDIN?

Thanks.

Kalman Naves at H-SIG Luncheon #hungary

Vivian Kahn
 

Dear Friends,

I am absolutely thrilled to announce that Elaine Kalman Naves will be
our guest speaker at the Hungarian SIG Luncheon in NYC during the
IAJGS conference. I discovered Elaine's book Journey to Vaja:
Reconstructing the World of a Hungarian-Jewish Family several years
ago and continue to believe that it is one of the best accounts
available of Hungarian Jewish family life and the history of
Hungarian Jews. It is not only a wonderful family story but also a
well-researched account of the socio-economic and historical
conditions and events that shaped the Hungarian Jewish experience.

Elaine will talk about her life-changing journey into her family's
past to write Journey to Vaja and will speak about the experience of
tracing her family's history back to the 18th Century as both a feat
of genealogical research and a study of character across the
generations. We all talk about how important it is to record more
than names, dates, and places. Elaine's superb work exemplifies this
approach to family research.

Elaine was born in Hungary and grew up in Budapest, London, and
Montreal. She was for many years a literary columnist for the
Montreal Gazette, and is the author of five books and more than 400
articles published in a variety of periodicals. Elaine has been the
recipient of numerous literary prizes including the prestigious
Canadian Literary Award in 1998. Her memoir Journey to Vaja:
Reconstructing the World of a Hungarian-Jewish Family was the winner
of the 1998 Elie Wiesel Prize for Holocaust Literature and has been
made into a documentary film called Paradise Lost. We're hoping to
show excerpts >from the film to illustrate her presentation. Plans
are underway to also include the film among the showings at the
conference film festival.

Elaine's most recent book, Shoshanna's Story: A Mother, A Daughter,
and the Shadows of History, won the 2003 Mavis Gallant Prize and a
2005 Canadian Jewish Book Award. It has just been published in the
United States by University of Nebraska Press.

If you haven't yet registered for the H-SIG luncheon there's still
time to do so. This promises to be one of our most memorable
programs ever. Don't miss it!

Vivian Kahn, H-SIG Coordinator.

Hungarian Research Computer Workshop #hungary

Vivian Kahn
 

Dear Ted and All,

It's my understanding that you can register for the Hungarian
research computer workshop on Sunday when you pick up your conference
registration. Appears that's there's no pre-registration for these
sessions. All I can suggest at this point is to get to registration
as early as possible.

I've been told that registration will be limited by the fact that
they have 25 computers available for each workshop. Depending on the
size of the room, they might be able to accommodate folks who just
audit the session but don't have access to one of the 25 computers.
We will also need one or two folks with good computer skills to serve
as monitors. They won't have to pay and won't have access to a
computer but have to walk around and help those who need assistance
with the available PCs. I'm a Mac user myself but expect that the
computers will all be operating on MS platform.

Please contact me off-list if you think you have the skills to serve
as a monitor and are interested in doing so.

I'm very pleased about the interest in the workshop I'm presenting at the

for this session opens on Sunday and will continue until the numbers
exceed available computers. I believe that we can handle 25 students per
session. The session will be on Thursday, August 17, >from 2:45 to 4 pm.

This promises to be an outstanding conference. Click on http://

time for the Hungarian SIG business meeting, which will be held right
before the workshop >from 1:15 PM - 2:30 PM on Thursday, and the Hungarian

arrangements w. our luncheon speaker and hope to have an announcement
