JGS of Illinois to hold luncheon meeting Sunday, Dec. 16, 2018 #general

Martin Fischer
 

Amateur genealogist Zalman Usiskin will share "Stories about Things I've Learned
from Doing Genealogy" at the Sunday, Dec. 16, 2018, special luncheon meeting of the
Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois at Temple Beth-El, 3610 Dundee Road,
Northbrook, Ill. His presentation starts at 2 p.m.

To order the $10 kosher lunch, either go to https://jgsi.org/event-3128376, email
info@jgsi.org or call 312-666-0100. Choose >from kosher veggie wrap, or tuna salad
or turkey sandwiches. Lunch orders are due by Wednesday, Dec. 12, at noon.
Participants are welcome to attend the free presentation without joining the group
for lunch. The sandwiches and the JGSI research library and genealogy help desk
will be available starting at 12:30 p.m.

Zalman Usiskin, our luncheon speaker, has been interested in the genealogy of the
various branches of his family since he was a teenager. Over the years, he has
compiled trees on three of his four grandparents with a total of more than 4,800
named relatives. On his paternal great-grandfather's line he has names of more
than 1,000 descendants of Usiskins all over the world but has never been able to
definitively verify that any are blood relatives.

In his presentation, Usiskin will tell a variety of stories that relate to almost
anyone doing Jewish genealogy and he will raise interesting questions. Some (not
all) of the questions: What original documents can be trusted? How might a person
today find cousins >from the Pale of Settlement who survived World War II? Can you
marry your cousin and, if so, where can you do that? Do we really have as many 3rd
and 4th cousins as the DNA companies and their websites suggest? Particularly for
us in Illinois, why did so many of our ancestors come to Chicago? Along the way in
his talk will be interesting and sometimes poignant stories that underscore why so
many of us delve into the genealogy of our families.

Google Translate Website Updated #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

As genealogists researching documents. Letters and more in different languages,
services to aid translation are critically important. Google translate is such a
tool in our quiver. Recently Google translate underwent an upgrade. One of
improvements is the ease to find the feature to upload documents for translation
in .doc, docx, odf, pdf, ppt,.ps, rtf, text, xls or xlsx. Initially, Google
translated only English and Arabic, today it has
grown to translate 103 languages. See: https://translate.google.com/

Google has added labels to each saved translation, so if you speak multiple
languages, you can sort and group your translations with a single click.

It appears to be a more responsive website so it can adjust dynamically for
screen size across all devices: mobile, tablet, or desktop. You can save
and organize translations you regularly utilize or search for.

Google Translate can also convert an entire website into a selected
language. To do this, enter the website address in the box on the left and
select your preferred language in the right box and click on the link that
appears. Note: if you use Chrome as your browser that website, also part of
the Google family, can translate an entire website or documents in a website.

I have no affiliation with Google and am posting this solely for the
information of the reader.

Brad Thayer asked on GerSIG where the burial register for the Jewish

The short answer is that it is in the Central Archives for the History
of the Jewish People in Jerusalem.

Newly translated book on the Holocaust in Hungary #hungary

cia@...
 

I wanted to inform the h-sig group regarding a newly translated (into English) book
â??How It Happenedâ??. Written in 1945 by Erno Munkacsi it details the anguished
decisions made by Jewish leaders during the days leading up to and during the
Holocaust in Hungary. Written (in Hungarian) well before the great scholar of the
Hungarian Holocaust, the recently deceased Randolph Braham published his monumental
works, this richly annotated English translation is published by McGill-Queen's
University Press.


Happy Chanukah to all,
