Lithuania SIG #Lithuania IAJGS CONFERENCE GALA: FUN, FESTIVE AND AFFORDABLE #lithuania

31st IAJGS Conference <dc2011_conference@...>
 

The “value-filled” Gala event, one of the major highlights of the 31st
IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy, is being held on
Thursday night, August 18, in the beautiful Grand Hyatt Ballroom. This
event, formerly known as “The Conference Banquet,” has been transformed
into one with a lower-key yet greater networking potential. Bowing to
comments, we’ve also scaled down the cost to a more realistic $65 per
person. This should make the event more affordable, and likely that more
Conference attendees and their spouses or companions (registered or not
for the full Conference) to attend.

What will attending the Gala get you? An attractively printed Gala
Journal will list the evening’s quality agenda, which thus far includes
these high points:

- Excellent-tasting kosher food, delicious hors d’oeuvres, and more
substantial, scrumptious fare at a variety of buffet stations, and cash bars

- A casual atmosphere that will allow you to meet, mix, mingle, and
above all, to network and share your fabulous genealogical finds during
the week

- Plenty of seating for chatting and relaxing: so much seating, in fact,
that you’ll be able to easily change seats >from food course to food
course, and mingle that much more readily! (We’ve done away with
predetermined, reserved seating, so that mingling-- an important goal of
attending IAJGS conferences-- would be more possible.)

- The pleasure of honoring and applauding our outstanding IAJGS
Achievement Awardees of the year, being given awards for major and
lifetime Jewish genealogical achievements

- And for your listening pleasure: the world-renowned Robyn Helzner Trio
will captivate us with their charming wit and evocative melodies sung in
Hebrew, Yiddish, Ladino, Russian and English >from Jewish communities in
five corners of the world. [Read more about them at their website:
http://www.helzner.com/trio.php]

- And as if all of these highlights weren’t enough, it’s possible that a
special, high-level guest might attend (arrangements are still pending,
we’ll let you know).

However, remember--- You can’t attend this wonderful, value-filled event
until you register for it AND the Conference. Early Bird discount prices
only run until April 30th, and will increase after that date, so
register NOW at www.dc2011.org <http://www.dc2011.org/>! (The Gala fee
for attending will remain at $65 per person.)

Look for information about other “value-filled” Conference features as
they’re finalized! See you at the Conference! For any questions, reach

Marjorie Rosenfeld <marjorierosenfeld@...>
 

I hope I haven't missed thanking anyone who sent me the answer to my
question about where the stress should fall when pronouncing "Volozhin."
The 100% opinion seems to be that it falls on the 2nd
syllable--Vol-O-zhin--whether pronouncing this in Russian, Hebrew, or
Yiddish. I knew I could count on this group to set me right!

JRI Poland #Poland HEUBERBER ? from Krakow #poland

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

My late mother Sarah Rebecca ROSNER nee KOENIGSBUCH (1920-1999)was born in
Krakow. She was gifted with a very good memory and in 1985 my cousin Bob
KINGSBOOK sat with her and drew in her presence the family tree of all
her 4 aunts all of whom,including her mother, perished in the Holocaust.

She listed their names,the names of their spouses and their children.
The married names of all the sisters >from FLANK family are: Sima
KOENIGSBUCH(our grandmother),Estera HOCHBERG,Chaja Sarah NOWOTNY,Anna
LANDESDORFER and Paulina HEUBERBER (HEUBERBER).

Paulina was born in 1908 and her husband was Cheskiel HEUBEBER. The FLANK
family originated >from Brzesko/Slotwina but I gather that the daughters
lived after marriage in Krakow and its environs.

I have trouble locating the HEUBERBER surname in Galicia. I tried
HEUBERBERG and variants.Yad Vashem lists only 1 HUBERBERG.

I tried the Pages of Testimony advanced search for a male "Cheskiel"
born in Krakow around 1905 (+/-5 years) and surprisingly it gave me
Chaskel GOLDSCHNEIDER who perished in Auschwitz in 1942 and who was
married to Paulina( I did not enter her name in my query). I found
another PoT on him by another relative filed in 2003 in Zurich which
contains less details. But I think that moving >from HEUBERBER to
GOLDSCHNEIDER might be too much.

Any suggestions and guesses will be more than welcome.

Ted Kotzin <tkotzin4713@...>
 

I am looking for the BOAZ (or BOAS) family of Schwerin and Frankfurt.
Otillia BOAZ was born in about 1850. She married David NEUMANN
(NEWMAN in America) in London in 1875 and came to America about 1881,
probably through Baltimore, ending up in Edenton NC. Herman BOAZ,
probably her brother, born in Schwerin in 1854, also came to North Carolina;
his son Daniel, born in NC in 1886, became an optometrist in Atlanta and had
a large family. I especially am looking for Otellia's parents and siblings.
