(see formats below) for the 35th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish
Genealogy, in cooperation with MyHeritage, to be held in Jerusalem, at the

seek proposals relevant to the interests of all genealogists researching
Jewish ancestors. If you have a proposal that does not specifically fit
one of the listed categories please feel free to submit that proposal as

As the conference will take place a few weeks before celebrating the 70th

the War on the Jewish people and their lives across the world;
WWII-related topics include, for example:
* Jewish life in Europe and beyond
* Jewish soldiers in the military
* Resources for military documentation
* The Holocaust
* Emigration and Immigration
* Unique archival repositories

Other unique focus areas include, but are not limited to:
* Resources for researching in Israel (including in pre-State Israel aka
Palestine)
* Technology, tools and techniques
* Academic studies which might assist the Jewish genealogy community
* Jewish genealogy for the younger generation

In addition, we welcome proposals for such Jewish genealogy topics as:
* Resources for researching Sephardic genealogy
* Researching Rabbinic lineages
* Jewish genealogy for beginners
* Country and region-specific research
* Onomastics

Proposal formats:
* Lectures - 45 minutes, including time for questions;
* Workshops - 105 minutes each in the computer lab. Workshops will be
opened upon a minimum number of registrants.
* Panel discussions - 105 minutes. The panel, focusing on a high-level,
broad subject, will include up to five speakers on a given topic, will be
led by a chairperson and will be summarized by a facilitator (all
participants should be named in the proposal). A typical panel will
include time for each speaker, a few minutes for the facilitator, and 20
minutes for an open discussion.

Any one prospective speaker may submit up to five proposals in either
English or Hebrew. A maximum of three proposals per speaker will be
accepted. Individual speakers with at least one accepted proposal receive

Yizkor Book Project, October 2014 #unitedkingdom

bounce-2864800-785714@...
 

Shalom,

As with quite a few of my recent Yizkor Book Project reports, once again, I
am able to announce the very gratifying news that yet another Yizkor Book
has now been completely translated and appears online. This time the project
which has reached this lofty goal is: Klobuck, Poland (The Book of
Klobucko; in memory of a martyred community which was destroyed) which was
adeptly coordinated by Allan Mantel and the riveting translations it
contains were prepared by Asher Szmulewicz and Gloria Berkenstat Freund.
Kudos to you all!

I was going to categorize what happened in the Yizkor Book Project during
October as the "Ukrainian Invasion" but realized that the term has already
been used... The reason I wanted to emphasize Ukraine is because I wanted to
point out the very large number of updates made relating to Ukrainian
communities during this past month. In particular ten new entries were added
from the Pinkas Hakehillot Poland (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in
Poland) for Ukrainian communities and I wish to thank Ron Doctor, Ellen
Garshick and the Kremenets District Research Group for being the driving
forces behind this welcome initiative.

For those of you who aren't familiar, the Yad Vashem museum in Israel
published a very large series of Pinkas Hakehillot (community
encyclopedias) presenting details of a huge number of communities which had
a large or small Jewish presence within them before the Holocaust. As such,
these volumes do present us with unique information on communities that
might not have been covered in any Yizkor book and hence, their importance
to us. I have pleased to see that more and more people are taking interest
in these volumes and if you are contemplating in sponsoring or translating
any of the articles >from these encyclopedias, please contact me and I will
assist in facilitating their translation.

Now to facts and figures for October.

During this last month we have added in 2 new projects:

Jewish Watchmakers and the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers in London #unitedkingdom

Tim Homewood
 

Greetings SIG members, a number of my ancestors were watchmakers who
migrated to London in the 19th Century >from Poland and Germany.

I was considering looking through the records of the Worshipful Company
of Clockmakers for more information but I've read that Jewish tradesmen
were not able to join the guilds as they were required to take a
Christian oath. Is this correct and does this mean there's no point
looking through the records?

They all seemed to have their places of business in the East End.

Some of my watchmakers are:
* Solomon HENRY (aka Henry SOLOMONS) born Germany about 1787
* Angel/Asher Levy CASPER possibly born in Holland about 1762
* Lewis LEVY/CASPER born London about 1778
* Nathan LEVY/CASPER born London about 1783
* Ellis/Elias CASPER (transported to Australia for the Gold Dust
Robbery) born London 1784
* Philip Nathan CASPER born London about 1827

Thanks for any help,

Tim Homewood

Re: Russian Draft in 1911; Jewish Digest 04 November 2014

David Laskin asks: "My paternal grandfather had his trigger finger
amputated in order to avoid the Russian draft in 1911... I'm wondering
how long the term of service was?...whether Jewish conscripts were
still treated harshly?..."

-The basic length of service in 1911 was 5 years, with 13 in the Reserves
(changed in 1888 >from the 1874 regulation of 6 years and 9 years in the
Reserves).
-Life in the Russian army was harsh for everybody.
-The obviousness of amputating a trigger finger is unlikely to have
succeeded in avoiding conscription; rather the reverse. The 1874 Regulations,
Clause 217 was very explicit: "The same punishment (namely, being
automatically compelled to serve in the Active Army without even the
chance of not being lottery-picked, plus solitary confinement for 4 1/2 to
6 months) will be inflicted on persons who either by themselves or
by the aid of third parties, become mutilated with a view to escaping active
service."
-Net, it would probably have been statistically wiser to risk the
approximately 80% chance that one's name would not actually be drawn in
the lottery.
