LEMKIN FAMILY RESEARCH #belarus

lixhope@...
 

Hello,

I have just joined this emailing list as I am about to go to Lviv, Ukraine
for a conference on renowned legal scholar Raphael Lemkin who coined the
term genocide. We share the surname but our family connection has never
been known. I'll be arriving in Belarus >from Oct 28th for 10 days before
the conference.
My great grandfather's UK naturalisation papers are being opened on
Monday in the Public Archives but I believe he was born somewhere near
Vitepsk. I would love to have feedback >from anyone who has been to Jewish
Heritage sites in Belarus particularly Slonim or others in Vitepsk region.
How best to get there? Any stories about Lemkin family members in Latvia from
where my great grandfather, Samuel, departed with his wife Sophie Samuels,
to start a new life in England. My grandfather whom I knew was born in
England in 1894.

Many thanks,

Alix Lemkin

JewishGen Education Offers "Writing Short Reports" November 3-27 #warsaw #poland

Nancy Holden
 

New Class >from JewishGen Education

JewishGen once again offers its popular publishing class November
3 - 27. This personal mentoring class will focus on writing short
reports.

There comes a time when you want to write up your research. After you
have worked hard to collect your family data why let it sit in a drawer?

Publishing a book requires an attention to detail, editing, footnotes,
bibliography which often discourages us >from publishing at all.
Sometimes we just want to write it out and share it in a short summary.

Want to share with a relative; or compare with another researcher you
find on JGFF or Ancestry or Geni or Facebook? Need to gather and
organize your data to hire a researcher? Want to self-publish a small
coffee table scrapbook or photobook just for fun?

In this class we will help you organize your data, notes and media
files to create 3 short-standardized reports.

This structured class uses a series of lessons and a forum setting
where you will post your work and interact with the instructor who
will make suggestions as you write your rough draft, edit and finalize
each report.

Requirements: You should have enough data collected or knowledge of
your chosen surname to be able to write their family history. You will
choose one family to work on as you build a template that you can use
for other families and persons of interest.

JewishGen classes are taught in a private forum setting that is
password protected. It is open 24/7. The 3 week class starts November
3 – 27. Tuition is $150.

JGS NY Meeting October 29 #general

Harriet Mayer
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society (NY) meeting
Sunday, October 29th at 2 PM
at the Museum of Jewish Heritage, 36 Battery Place, New York

Co-sponsored by JewishGen.org

The Lucille Gudis Memorial Lecture: Speaker - Emily Garber
"Beyond the Manifest: Applying the Genealogical Proof Standard to Confirm
One's Ancestral Origins"

When several communities in Eastern Europe have similar names and their
names have been changed over the years, it can be difficult to identify
one's family shtetl of origin. Emily Garber will explore various
genealogical sources and techniques, providing tools and methods for
confirming the location of the shtetl. She will discuss the importance
of proceeding with a well-designed research plan and how to apply a high
standard of proof in our research to assure that our findings and
conclusions are correct. Resources will include landsmanshaft burial
data, online archival material and the Shoah Names database.

An archaeologist by training, Emily is a family history researcher,
writer, blogger and speaker. She has been researching her family since
2007 and in 2013 traveled to Ukraine to visit archives and family
villages. She holds a certificate >from the Boston University Genealogical
Research program. She is the Chair of the Phoenix Jewish Genealogy Group
and a member of the board of the Arizona Jewish Historical Society.

All are welcome.

My Waller family relatives searching #hungary

esteban.reti@...
 

My gran gran grandad, Israel Waller (no birth and dead dates) had with
his first wife, a son named Vilmos Waller (1863-1929), my gran
granfather He was born almost the same time as Moshe Avraham Waller,
(1859-1943), son of Burech Chaim Waller (1825-1890) both of them,
relatives to other friend Waller family tree
Vilmos is my direct relative,was born in Ujvaritanya (Baranya) and
dead in Galvacs, Borsod-Abauj-Zemplen and my friend`s Moshe Avraham,
was born in Satoraljaujhely (.Borsod-Abauj-Zemplen).
Borsod Abauj Zemplen is located on the north east of Hungary and
Baranya, in the south of the country. Are two opposite states.
Maybe is hard to think are the same family, unless if they are cousins
of 1rst, 2nd or 3rth grade.
But Vilmos dead in the same state where was born Moshe, I mean,
Galvacs. This makes the searching more interesting, to find, if both
Waller lines, could makes the same Waller family..
