Resource Center at The 31st IAJGS International Conference #yiddish

Don't Pass Up the Resource Center at The Conference!

This year’s Resource Center is a real benefit to researchers, and definitely
should not be overlooked. It's a valuable place to spend time studying maps
for ancestral towns, reviewing computerized surname indexes, and searching
through a wide variety of databases to fill in gaps in your research. It's a
"problem worth having" because it's virtually guaranteed to compete with
your equally strong desire to attend Conference sessions, network, see
Judaic films, visit vendors, etc. (You also will be able to avoid going
outside into the August heat of Washington by conducting your research in
the comfort of the Grand Hyatt, and still be close to other Conference
features you want to catch!)

The Resource Center also will be a lively, "happening" place to be because
virtually EVERY Conference attendee will visit the Resource Center! How can
you pass that up? (And when you do come by, we suggest you bring a listing
of your "research goals," the specific surnames, towns, or dates you’re
researching so that you can spend your time more wisely.)

Where’s what this year's Resource Center consists of:
- Carefully selected reference materials, specialized archival
materials, and maps (laminated and available on long tables) >from the
hosting organization, the Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington
(JGSGW)’s extensive library collection;
- 5 PC computers dedicated to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum
(USHMM) Central Names Index (CNI). That index will help inform attendees'
Holocaust-era research and be a major aid when conducting research at the
Museum itself; and
- 35 additional PCs loaded with links to websites usually
accessible only through subscription or membership.
- Translation Services located in an adjacent room, with a free
20-minute appointment for conference attendees who sign up at the
Conference, its schedule to be posted.

The Resource Center will be open during these days and hours:
Sunday, August 14, >from 1 p.m. - 5 p.m.
Monday, August 15, >from 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Tuesday, August 16, >from 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Wednesday, August 17, >from 7:30 a.m.- 9 p.m.
Thursday, August 18, >from 7:30 a.m.– 5:30 p.m.
Friday, August 19, >from 7:30 a.m. – 11 a.m.

We'll have a large number of links available to both free and subscription
(free at the Conference) genealogy-related websites. These will be on the
Resource Center's 35 computers, and be available for all SIX DAYS of
the Conference.

National Archives of Ireland #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Almost all the records acquired by the Public Record Office of Ireland
before 1922 were destroyed by fire and explosion at the beginning of the
Civil War in June 1922 and as a result, the material now held by the
National Archives of Ireland dates mainly >from the 19th and 20th centuries,
although there are a few surviving court and exchequer rolls dating to the
early 14th century.

The National Archives of Ireland website is:
http://www.nationalarchives.ie/index.html which includes the 1901 and 1911
censuses on line. To find out more about what archives are available go to
http://www.nationalarchives.ie/research/archives.html
On the National Archives website there are links to a number Irish genealogy sites
http://www.nationalarchives.ie/genealogy/links.html

A number of Jews did stop in Ireland en route to North America, some staying
for years...therefore, these archives may be of interest to those who had
ancestors who did stop and or stay in Ireland.

WOLPAW family of Cleveland - Success! #general

Jules Feldman
 

On Friday (2 days ago) I placed the following query:
"My great grandmother who was born Rochel Leah KAMBER or BIRMAN (her brothers
went by different surnames ) had a sister Feiga , born about 1845, who was
married to Azriel WOLPE or WOLPAW. At some stage they moved to Cleveland,
possibly in the late 19th Century. In the 1950s my uncle Tevy COHEN, of
Johannesburg, visited their son in Cleveland."
5 wonderful Jewish Genners sent me information, each adding a piece to the
picture.
A few minutes ago I spoke with a great grandaughter of Azriel (aka Israel)
and Feiga (aka Fanny).
WOLPAW

Many thanks to each and all of you.

Thanks to all those who confirmed that "hdgy" is an abbreviation forÂ
"hadnagy" or Second Lieutenant. My great-aunt's husband Dezso wasÂ
probably very proud of his military service.

I recall finding another relative who was a "hadnagy" on a list ofÂ
Hungarian Jews who were officers during WWI. Does anyone remember
seeing such a list or where I might find such information? All I knowÂ
about MARKUS Dezso was that he married my great-aunt Rosza MOSKOVITSÂ
about 1912 and that they lived in Sepsiszentgyorgy, where theirÂ
daughter Piroska was born in 1913. In 1943, Dezso was living inÂ
Debrecen with his daughter and her family. I assume that Rosza diedÂ
before the war, because she's not listed on the Debrecen memorial or in
the deportation lists, but haven't yet found any record of her death.

Resource Center at The 31st IAJGS International Conference #hungary

bounce-2250616-772961@...
 

Don't Pass Up the Resource Center at The Conference!

This year’s Resource Center is a real benefit to researchers, and definitely
should not be overlooked. It's a valuable place to spend time studying maps
for ancestral towns, reviewing computerized surname indexes, and searching
through a wide variety of databases to fill in gaps in your research. It's a
"problem worth having" because it's virtually guaranteed to compete with
your equally strong desire to attend Conference sessions, network, see
Judaic films, visit vendors, etc. (You also will be able to avoid going
outside into the August heat of Washington by conducting your research in
the comfort of the Grand Hyatt, and still be close to other Conference
features you want to catch!)

The Resource Center also will be a lively, "happening" place to be because
virtually EVERY Conference attendee will visit the Resource Center! How can
you pass that up? (And when you do come by, we suggest you bring a listing
of your "research goals," the specific surnames, towns, or dates you’re
researching so that you can spend your time more wisely.)

Where’s what this year's Resource Center consists of:
- Carefully selected reference materials, specialized archival
materials, and maps (laminated and available on long tables) >from the
hosting organization, the Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington
(JGSGW)’s extensive library collection;
- 5 PC computers dedicated to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum
(USHMM) Central Names Index (CNI). That index will help inform attendees'
Holocaust-era research and be a major aid when conducting research at the
Museum itself; and
- 35 additional PCs loaded with links to websites usually
accessible only through subscription or membership.
- Translation Services located in an adjacent room, with a free
20-minute appointment for conference attendees who sign up at the
Conference, its schedule to be posted.

The Resource Center will be open during these days and hours:
Sunday, August 14, >from 1 p.m. - 5 p.m.
Monday, August 15, >from 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Tuesday, August 16, >from 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Wednesday, August 17, >from 7:30 a.m.- 9 p.m.
Thursday, August 18, >from 7:30 a.m.– 5:30 p.m.
Friday, August 19, >from 7:30 a.m. – 11 a.m.

We'll have a large number of links available to both free and subscription
(free at the Conference) genealogy-related websites. These will be on the
Resource Center's 35 computers, and be available for all SIX DAYS of
the Conference.

Save the Date: ProQuest Databases will only be available on Wednesday,
August 16! On that date, and >from 7:30 am to 9 pm, ProQuest has agreed to
provide free access to their numerous and specialized databases. To be fair
to all users wishing access, we'll need to limit use of the computers with
ProQuest on them to one hour per user. Here is what the ProQuest
databases available that day will include:

ProQuest Sanborn Maps Geo Edition (all content)
Ethnic NewsWatch (includes Jewish Newspapers)
Historic Map Works Library Edition (all content)
HeritageQuest Online (all content)
Gannett Military Newspapers (all content)
Canada's Heritage >from 1844- Globe and Mail (all content)
Canadian Newsstand (all content)
Toronto Star (all content >from inception to current, as available)
ProQuest Dissertation and Theses (all content)
American Periodicals Series Online--1741-1900 (all content)
List of 20 Historical Newspapers (16 U.S.-based and 4 International):
U. S.-Based:
The Arizona Republican—1890-1922
Atlanta Constitution—1868-1945
The Baltimore Sun—1837-1985
The Boston Globe—1872-1979

The Guardian & The Observer—1791-2003
Irish Times & Weekly Irish Times—1859-2009
The Scotsman—1817-1950
The Times of India—1838-2001

As you can see, this year's Resource Center is abundantly filled with
versatile research tools. Please come by the Resource Center: you'll thank
yourself!

Books and archival materials can be checked out for use by turning in a
government-issued picture ID to be left with Resource Center staff. This
ensures that materials are returned. No one will be permitted to leave the
room with library materials.

But you do have to be a Conference registrant to use the maps, books,
archival materials, and computerized databases there. With that in mind,
Conference registration rates are very flexible and include full week or
single day registration, as well as discount rates for spouses/companions,
college and high school students. You also can arrange for Grand Hyatt
Washington hotel lodging through the Conference website.

For further information, please contact info@dc2011.org. The Conference
website is www.dc2011.org.

See you in August!

Resource Center Coordinator

Thanks to all those who confirmed that "hdgy" is an abbreviation forÂ
"hadnagy" or Second Lieutenant. My great-aunt's husband Dezso wasÂ
probably very proud of his military service.

I recall finding another relative who was a "hadnagy" on a list ofÂ
Hungarian Jews who were officers during WWI. Does anyone remember
seeing such a list or where I might find such information? All I knowÂ
about MARKUS Dezso was that he married my great-aunt Rosza MOSKOVITSÂ
about 1912 and that they lived in Sepsiszentgyorgy, where theirÂ
daughter Piroska was born in 1913. In 1943, Dezso was living inÂ
Debrecen with his daughter and her family. I assume that Rosza diedÂ
before the war, because she's not listed on the Debrecen memorial or in
the deportation lists, but haven't yet found any record of her death.

Hungary SIG #Hungary Resource Center at The 31st IAJGS International Conference #hungary

Don't Pass Up the Resource Center at The Conference!

This year’s Resource Center is a real benefit to researchers, and definitely
should not be overlooked. It's a valuable place to spend time studying maps
for ancestral towns, reviewing computerized surname indexes, and searching
through a wide variety of databases to fill in gaps in your research. It's a
"problem worth having" because it's virtually guaranteed to compete with
your equally strong desire to attend Conference sessions, network, see
Judaic films, visit vendors, etc. (You also will be able to avoid going
outside into the August heat of Washington by conducting your research in
the comfort of the Grand Hyatt, and still be close to other Conference
features you want to catch!)

The Resource Center also will be a lively, "happening" place to be because
virtually EVERY Conference attendee will visit the Resource Center! How can
you pass that up? (And when you do come by, we suggest you bring a listing
of your "research goals," the specific surnames, towns, or dates you’re
researching so that you can spend your time more wisely.)

Where’s what this year's Resource Center consists of:
- Carefully selected reference materials, specialized archival
materials, and maps (laminated and available on long tables) >from the
hosting organization, the Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington
(JGSGW)’s extensive library collection;
- 5 PC computers dedicated to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum
(USHMM) Central Names Index (CNI). That index will help inform attendees'
Holocaust-era research and be a major aid when conducting research at the
Museum itself; and
- 35 additional PCs loaded with links to websites usually
accessible only through subscription or membership.
- Translation Services located in an adjacent room, with a free
20-minute appointment for conference attendees who sign up at the
Conference, its schedule to be posted.

The Resource Center will be open during these days and hours:
Sunday, August 14, >from 1 p.m. - 5 p.m.
Monday, August 15, >from 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Tuesday, August 16, >from 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Wednesday, August 17, >from 7:30 a.m.- 9 p.m.
Thursday, August 18, >from 7:30 a.m.– 5:30 p.m.
Friday, August 19, >from 7:30 a.m. – 11 a.m.

We'll have a large number of links available to both free and subscription
(free at the Conference) genealogy-related websites. These will be on the
Resource Center's 35 computers, and be available for all SIX DAYS of
the Conference.

As you can see, this year's Resource Center is abundantly filled with
versatile research tools. Please come by the Resource Center: you'll thank
yourself!

Books and archival materials can be checked out for use by turning in a
government-issued picture ID to be left with Resource Center staff. This
ensures that materials are returned. No one will be permitted to leave the
room with library materials.

But you do have to be a Conference registrant to use the maps, books,
archival materials, and computerized databases there. With that in mind,
Conference registration rates are very flexible and include full week or
single day registration, as well as discount rates for spouses/companions,
college and high school students. You also can arrange for Grand Hyatt
Washington hotel lodging through the Conference website.

For further information, please contact info@dc2011.org. The Conference
website is www.dc2011.org.

See you in August!

PARNES Family of Dubno/Vilna/Lvov #general

Michael Waas
 

Hi SIG,
I am currently reviewing material on the PARNES family of Dubno/Vilna/Lvov.
I have reviewed both direct material such as the forward written by
R' Zalman MARGOLIT in Megilah Emukot, by R' Natan Neta SPIRA, as well as
encyclopedic books like Ir Vilna and Dubno Rabbati. I am at a crossroads
and perhaps some of you may be able to help me.

I have come across three separate paternal line Yichusim of the family. In
general, they all end at the brothers R' Haim Nachman PARNES of Vilna and
R' Itzhak Natan Neta PARNES of Lvov. They are as follows:

a) Their father is Moshe Peretz PARNES. His father is Natan Neta in
Lvov, and they are descendant >from R' Natan Neta SPIRA.

b) Their father is Moshe Peretz PARNES. His father is Menachem Menush
PARNES. His father is Avigdor PARNES. His father is David PARNES. His
father is Moshe PARNES. His father is Abraham PARNES.

c) B is the same up until the father of David PARNES. Instead, David is the
son of Abraham PARNES. His father is Zev Vulf, (I believe son or grandson
of the second Maharashal of Lublin) and also a descendant of the Taz.

Furthermore, I am looking into the likelihood that R' Itzhak Natan Neta
PARNES is the progenitor of my great-grandmother's family, owing to similar
family names that crop up between the PARNES of Dubno/Vilna/Lvov and my
family, who were apparently of some importance as my great-great-great
grandfather Moshe Yaacov PARNES ran a government store in the area of
Zloczow in Bialy Kamien. If anyone knows anything about the descendants of
R' Itzhak Natan Neta PARNES it would be most appreciated.
