Dear RAV-SIG:

Lainey Melnick inquired about "her" MEISELS >from Vilna which :"nudged:ne to
post about "my"MEISELS as I too, hav not posted in along time on RAV-SIG

My MEISELS family immigrated >from Brody in 1889--2nd Great grandfather was
Yehuda Levish Meisels married to Leah Segal- my great grandfather ( who
immigrated to US) was Meier Meisels (born 1848) married to Eidel Lieberman
(born 1948). I have never been able to find any of "my" Meisels records in
Brody- have found the Lieberman's records. My grandfather- Alexander
Siskind Meisels born abt 1872 and siblings: Mina, Maria, Rafael,
Henrietta/Anne all per ship's manifest >from Brody. Do any of these names
sound familiar. Family lore is that we are related to Rabbi Dov Ber Meisels
but I don't have the connection documented..Yehuda Levish Meisels - could be
Zvi Areyeh Yehudah Yaakov Meisels, son of Dov Ber Meisels. Someone named
Areyeh Yehudah may be known as Yehudah Levish -but I don't have anything to
"prove this" or the name of father of my second great grandfather- Yehuda
Levish which I have off the metzevah of Meier .

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

New One Step Tutorial/Quiz on 1940 Census Searching Tools #general

Joel Weintraub
 

In less than 10 months the 1940 US Population Schedules will become public.
It will not be name indexed, so it will be necessary to do an address search
in order to find families. Address searching involves knowing the ED
(enumeration district) in which the address is located.. The National
Archives (NARA) earlier this year indicated they had plans to make
available in 2011 the 1940 ED maps of cities and counties, and ED
descriptions, but their recent move to consider having a 3rd party host all
the images may have appreciably set back this timetable.

The only website that currently has location tools for the 1940 census is
the Steve Morse One Step site (http://stevemorse.org). There are several
such tools there, and it could be overwhelming to figure out which tool to
use when. There is a tutorial that attempts to clarify it
(http://stevemorse.org/census/intro.html) and an extensive FAQ
(http://stevemorse.org/census/faq.htm).

We are announcing the opening of another educational utility to help people
learn about the different 1940 locational search tools on the One Step
site, and information about the 1940 census itself. It is in the form of a
quiz, and should help many, many genealogists quickly learn how to search an
unindexed census by location. The new utility is at:
http://stevemorse.org/census/quiz.php and is called "How to Access the 1940
Census in One Step". Not only is it informative, we hope it is
entertaining.

Thanks

In response to my query to Canadian Jewish Congress Charities

I received information that they are constrained by the privacy
protection laws of Canada and Quebec. Only the immigration agency
clients named in the files, or, if they are no longer living, their
direct descendants, are allowed access to the complete contents of a
personal file that is less than 100 years old.
They further state that they realize and regret that adhering to
these rules creates obstacles to genealogical and
family tracing research.

Re: Soundex (Daitch-Mokotoff) #general

Sarah L Meyer
 

Genners,

Just a clarification for the Newbies to Jewish genealogy. Standard soundex
does keep the same first letter, however we normally use Daitch-Mokotoff
soundex where the first letter is also coded. When doing a lookup in
Jewishgen, if you want to keep the first letter constant, it needs to be put
in brackets. With three alphabets (Cyrillic, Hebrew and Latin) it is very
easy for a name such as Edelberg to have been used by another family member
in a different country as Adelberg. When you get a lot of "weird results",
such as when I did Bigos and ended up with Fox, it is better to search on
either exact spelling or at least [B]igos. This comes >from using soundex
on the first letter and having only three consonants.

Sarah L Meyer Christiansen

Soundex always uses the first letter of the name as the initial letter of
the result, so that letter would remain a "C" and never convert to an "S."

DC2011: Family panel Jewish genetic diseases at Genealogy conference #warsaw #poland

bounce-2248040-772981@...
 

Th-409 "Genzyme Panel: Our Heritage and Our Health"
Thursday, August 18, 2011 >from 2:15 PM - 5:00 PM

1 in 5 Ashkenazi Jews is a carrier of a gene mutation for at least one of 19
preventable diseases for which screening is available. These diseases occur
with greater frequency in the AJ population. Some are life-threatening and
may lead to death in childhood. The most well-known Jewish genetic disease
is Tay-Sachs disease. Since screening for Tay-Sachs was introduced in the
1970's the number of babies with Tay-Sachs born in the Jewish community has
dropped by 90%. Most babies born today with Tay-Sachs disease do not have
Ashekanzi Jewish ancestry.

The panel of family members at the Genealogy conference will introduce you
to some of the other diseases for which we need to raise awareness in the
Jewish community and ensure that all young adults are screened for prior to
starting a family. Since a carrier is healthy and has no outward signs of
being a carrier , a blood test is essential to find out of one is a carrier.
The only other way to find out is after the birth of an affected child.

This panel aims to provide a personal perspective about what some of the
diseases are, how they affect the individual and the impact on the family.
Our panel members are Susan Stillman, the mother of a 13 year old son with
familial dysautonomia; Joy Paul whose niece, Allison, passed away from
Canavan disease. Dana Doheny is the mother of a 30 year old young man with
cystic fibrosis who recently had a lung transplant and Cyndi Frank has
Gaucher disease and will talk to you about living with Gaucher disease and
how it is managed and the impact on her life. Each person will tell their
story and there will be time for a discussion with the panel who will be
happy to answer the questions >from the audience. Faciliators of this panel
will be Gary Frohlich, MS, CGC and Adele Schneider, MD, FACMG.

This program is made possible by an educational grant >from Genzyme
Corporation.

31st IAJGS Conference - The Family Finder #poland #warsaw

bounce-2247588-772981@...
 

The "Family Finder" is one of the treasures that attendees at the 31st IAJGS
International Conference on Jewish Genealogy will receive. It is an 8 1/2" x
11" book that contains the compiled listing of attendees at the conference
and the surnames and places that the attendees are researching. The last day
for submitting Family Finder data is this Thursday, June 30. Only a few days
remain!

You must register for the conference to submit data for the "Family Finder."
If you have already registered, you can go back into your registration to
add or correct the information that is there.

Is your Family Finder data complete in our records? When you registered, did
you plan to return later and enter your family research information? Have
you done so? Each attendee may enter up to 10 names and places in the
"Family Finder." The first 5 entries will be printed on the conference badge
in large letters for conference attendees to see and read. All 10 entries
will appear in the book. A new feature of the "Family Finder" is a listing
of conference attendees by DNA information/group.

Important! Please observe a few easy rules for entering data. Following
these rules will help make everyone's data uniform for ease of comparison.
For details, please review guidelines in the Family Finder article
<http://dc2011.org/index.php/register/family-finder> on the DC2011 Internet
site.

Although online registration for the conference will continue until July 31
and you can even show up and register at the conference, if you do not
complete your "Family Finder" entries by the Thursday deadline, the
information will not be in the printed book and you will miss the great
opportunity to share your information with everyone attending the
conference.

If you haven't registered yet, be sure to do so before Friday, July 1, to
enter your Family research surnames. Start on the DC2011 Registration info
page <http://dc2011.org/index.php/register>.

See you in August!
