Ovsey Discussion #general

Elynn Boss <bossgen@...>
 

My great-great grandfather was Ovsey DANOVITCH, and his Hebrew name was
Yehoshua. When he arrived in the US and became a citizen, he did so
using the name Sam. However, since his older brother also took the name
Sam, my gr-gr-grandfather changed his name to Joshua. My late cousin
told me that she always called him Uncle Gesua.

English names weren't that important to people back then, because what
was important was what their families called them. My great grandfather
on another side was Baruch, but on the death certificates of his sons he
was Bernard, Barry, and Benny. My own grandmother was Vitel, Violet,
Viv, and Vicky, and she came here when she was 5 years old.

Re: Given name "Owsey" #general

ROBERT WEISS
 

Regarding the name Owsey:

In my collection of documents relating to possible WOLPERT ancestors >from
Kedainiai I came across three persons with that given name. Various
Lithuanian documents call out the following variations of the name "Owsey":

Person #1, born ca 1830: Ovsey, Govsha, Hoshua;

Person #2, born 1739: Govshey, Ovsey;

Person #3, born 1829: Ovsey, Govsha, Gosel, Yehoshua-Nechemia.

Romania SIG #Romania CATZ/KATZ 'Village of the Iron Bridge'- Bacau. #romania

Nigel Wilson <wilsonettes@...>
 

Dear Genners,

After many years of research and finally printing out my family tree and
sending it off around the world, I have just received information as to the
exact area in Romania where part of my family lived.

A cousin is going to visit in July and would like to have as much
information at his fingertips so as not to lose precious time.

Family CATZ/KATZ – apparently lived in ‘The village of the Iron Bridge’
Podul de Pher? In the suburb of Letia Veche in the district of Siret in the
county of Bacau.

Is there anyone who can advise where exactly this village is, where the
nearest cemetery would be, could birth/death certificates be found for this
area?. We are talking about 1900-1920.

The Katz family originally came >from Piatra Neamt, but the eldest son Baruch
settled in Bacau where he had 14 children.

This new information could possibly lead me further with investigation into
Baruch’s parents, siblings/cousins etc. so if anyone has information no
matter how small, please get back to me off line.

I thank you in anticipation.

Patricia Wilson (Israel)

MODERATOR NOTE: ShtetlSeeker (www.jewishgen.org/shtetlseeker)will give you
coordinates and MapQuest maps.

DC 2003 Conference Update - Deadline for online registration July 8 #belarus

David M. Fox <davefox73@...>
 

The DC 2003 Conference is less then a month away. If you have been sitting
on the fence, now is the time to register. Besides the excellent program and
research archives in DC, this Conference is a wonderful opportunity to
network with fellow researchers and experts in the field of Jewish
genealogy. Don't forget to let us know you have registered to attend the
Conference by going to http://www.jewishgen.org/belarus/dc2003.htm.

Look for an extract >from the Conference Day Planner with sessions of
particular interest to Belarus researchers. Edward will be putting up a
webpage with this information in the next day or two.

I share with you the following message >from Elias Savada, DC 2003 Conference
Co-Chair:

As promised, the latest version ("D") of the Day Planner (a.k.a. the
schedule) for the 23rd IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy
was posted to our website last Sunday. You can view it online and/or
download a version readable in Word. For the first time this includes the
room names where the presentations/events will be held. The Conference
website is at http://www.jewishgen.org/dc2003

The Film Fest portion of the program (which, unfortunately, is limited to a
smaller venue on the mezzanine level) is proud to announce that on Tuesday,
July 22nd, we will be offering a day filled with the films of Yale Strom,
noted director, author, and musician. Among the films to be presented are
L'Chayim, Comrade Stalin; The Last Klezmer; Carpati: 50 Miles, 50 Years; and
his newest, Klezmer on Fish Street. Yale will be available to introduce his
films and sign copies of his new volume, The Book of Klezmer." Additional
screenings may be scheduled.

Dr. Martin Stiglio, director of the Istituto Italiano di Cultura, will be
introducing The Righteous Enemy, the first filmed account of the Italian
resistance to the 'Final Solution.'

And local filmmaker Esther McBride and staff >from the Jewish Historical
Society of Greater Washington will present a series of short films about
Jewish life in Washington.

For those of you who have read the rave reviews of the new Anne Frank
exhibit at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
(http://ushmm.org/museum/exhibit/index.utp?content=exhibit/right.htm%23anne)
, you will have exclusive access to this exhibit during the private
tour/reception on Monday night at the conference. Tickets are only $10 and
can be ordered during registration. Otherwise, you will need timed tickets
in conjunction with the two free museum ducats (given to every registrant),
for use outside of the private reception.

The Library of Congress staff are finalizing their schedule of introductions
(exclusive to conference participants) to various Reading Rooms. While the
time/dates have not been finalized, details will appear in the next version
of the day planner. The following Reading Rooms will offer these on-site
sessions: Newspapers and Current Periodicals, European, Local History and
Genealogy, Maps, and Hebraic Section.

Now, some ***very important news*** for those of you who are planning on
attending but have procrastinated to this point (shame on you). Online
registration will close at 9AM on July 8, as our registration company needs
to prepare all the tickets, badges, etc. to be included in each registration
packet. Registration will resume at the hotel sometime during the weekend
before the official Conference launch Sunday morning. However, the CD-ROM
needs to be sent for replication 3 weeks before the conference begins, so we
will be cutting off the Family Finder portion of the registration (at least
as included in the syllabus and CD-ROM) before the end of June. The Family
Finder is a key ingredient of the program and by waiting much longer you
risk being left out.

In just over a month I hope to be seeing many of you here in Washington!
