IGRA Meeting December 12th Givatayim, Israel - Discover Your Roots at the Click of a Mouse #poland

Hinda Solomon
 

For those of you who will be in Israel and would like to attend a meeting
of the Israel Genealogy Research Association (IGRA), "Discover Your Roots
at the Click of a Mouse", on December 12th in Givatayim. This lecture is
in Hebrew.

After years of wandering among the archives of Lodz in Poland and repeated
visits to Yad Vashem's Pages of Testimony project, Rachel Vered had almost
given up on finding her mother's family history in Poland. A random
encounter with the journalist Tzach Oryan led to a surprising ending,
achieved by using his home computer.

Through the story of this unique case, Oryan presents various aspects of
the study of family roots and reveals the genealogical treasures hidden
in cyberspace, especially with regard to the genealogy of the Jews of
Poland and Eastern Europe. The introductory presentation,"Discover Your
Roots at the Click of a Mouse" reveals first steps for genealogy
enthusiasts, including its main components and sources of information.
It offers a glimpse into the search world of lost relatives, the
construction of family trees, the naming process among Jews, and more.

Tzach Oryan-Oracz, a journalist and content consultant >from Tel Aviv, has
been active in the genealogical scene in Israel for several years and among
other things he headed the branch of the Ass. for the Study of Family
Roots at Beit Ariela in Tel Aviv and initiated the genealogical consulting
service. He was an assistant to Major General Uzi Narkiss, the chairman of
the Information Department of the Jewish Agency and the World Zionist
Organization, he was a correspondent for the local newspapers of the
"Yedioth Tikshoret" network, and has edited the weekend edition on the
HOT cable TV channel. He has a BA in Social Sciences (Hebrew University)
and an MA in law (Bar-Ilan University) and is currently working at the
"Global City and Tourism" department of the Tel Aviv municipality.

Location: Shazar Community Center, 30 Yavne'eli Street, Givatayim

Time: Gathering and light refreshments at 7:30 PM.
Lecture begins at 8:00 PM.

Entrance fee NIS 20. IGRA members free. (an NIS is a New Israeli Shekel)

We would be happy to have you answer the questions if you ever visited
Lviv for short stays, or share the links via social media and for your
friends who visited Lviv as tourists.

The survey is anonymous. All the data will be used in a generalized
format for the scientific analysis. The survey findings will be

My mother, born 1898, lived in Lysanka and nearby Zvenigorodka, southeast of Kiev. She spoke of her life in Zvenigorodka and how she came to Philadelphia >from there in early 1914. Her father was a miller. She had two sisters and a brother who was killed at the front in WWI. One sister came to the U.S.with her. The other sister remained in Zvenigorodka, moved to Kharkov, married there, and had two daughters. She survived WWII. One of the daughters and husband were murdered by the Nazis in the holocaust. The other daughter survived the war and married a man named Shvartsman and moved to Kharkov. My mother's family name was Podkaminsky.

Is there a memory book concerning Zvenigorodka and environs? Are there census lists or other sources of information that would tell about the life of this family? Please contact me as below. I am 90 years old and hope to get some information before it is too late.
