Upcoming IAJGS conference advertising and accommodations #usa

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

Time is running out if you wish to advertise for the conference. We
still have ad space in the Conference Syllabus, the Family Finder, The
Conference App, and the Conference Banquet Journal. Your ad must be in
to the Conference prior to June 15 in a pdf or other format that allows
us to publish it as is. All of the printed ads will be in black and
white, and online ads can be in color. We also still have the option to
put an insert into the Conference bag which will be given to all full
attendees of the Conference. Those will have to be printed and 1,000
copies must be delivered to the hotel to the attention of the Conference
not later than August 4. For more information on advertising and to
send in your reservation, see the Advertising tab on our website,
http://www.iajgs2016.org/how-to-advertise/

Conference Planning has entered the final stages. The Sheraton has
reported to us they are no longer able to accommodate base room
reservations for the entire week of the Conference. There are some
upgraded rooms available and some individual night rooms, as well.
There are few other rooms available in downtown Seattle. You need to
search for rooms if you have not made your room reservations for the
Conference. The University of Washington and Capitol Hill neighborhoods
offer quick access by the new light rail system to the Sheraton.
Pioneer Square is also a short distance >from downtown. The Westlake
Light Rail station is less than two blocks >from the Sheraton. There may
also be few rooms left at the Hyatt Olive 8 hotel, three blocks from
the Conference at
https://aws.passkey.com/event/15080205/owner/69782/home . They have been
gracious to offer a small block of rooms at a special rate for the
Conference. If you have already reserved rooms that you will not need,
we would appreciate it if you could release your unneeded room nights so
there is room for others.

We are looking forward to greeting you in Seattle. This will be one of
the better attended conferences in the past ten years. In addition to
the great programming lineup and entertainment, it is a great
opportunity to meet friends you may only know through online sources.
Seattle will be an exciting place to be >from August 7-12! See you then.

New York Jewish Genealogy Course begins June 27 #usa

Phyllis Kramer
 

So many of our immigrant ancestors lived in New York City...they
started on the Lower East Side and upgraded to the Bronx, Brooklyn
and surrounds.

Sure we have the census >from Ancestry and FamilySearch and vital
records >from ItalianGen, but this class will focus on the more
esoteric documents our ancestors generated ...naturalization, probate,
landsmanshaften, voters registration, newspapers, court cases. This
will be useful to those who want to find that missing branch, visit or
contact NY Archives. We will have suggestions on where to research,
where to wander and how to get there..and we'll schedule a field trip
to selected archives.

This is an intermediate/advanced level genealogy course with 8 text
lessons you can download; there are no specific times for the course
as students are international. We feature a unique personal mentoring
program where students select a branch to research and work one-on-one
with the instructor. Students should have 8-10 hours per week to read
the lessons, search online and interact with the instructor.

The tuition is $125. Registration is open. Enrollment is limited.
Please...review the details under the New York course description at

Hello,

I am born in Germany Berlin and my father in Osnabrueck.
I do live in Australia for over 30 years and contacted
about 12 years ago a person with my family name Mense
in Melbourne Australia.
When we met he was very disappointed because I am tall,

This man was a jew.
My grandson has done some searching with the Internet
and found some Mense of jewish descend but there is
no way to follow this up.
When I am using your family search and my father's town
of birth, Osnabrueck, no results come up.
Can anyone help?

Kosten cemetery list #germany

Judith Elam
 

I ran across this gravestone list for Kosten (Koscian). It appears it was
compiled in the early 1940s. It gives names, dates of birth and dates of
death, where known or legible, I assume. I am hoping that these links can
be put on JOWBR. The same information can also be found on Ancestry.com
under All Global, Find A Grave Index for Burials at Sea and other Select
Burial Locations, 1300s-Current results for Koscian.

http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/53/801/0/9.4/70/skan/full/9-yA-Q5H5oP0bHTCAUWx9A

There are several pages of typed (Nazi) correspondence both before and after
the list, and I would be very grateful if someone could give me an idea as
to what this is all about.

Would Anna Maria have a daughter Marie Anna? #germany

Eva Lawrence
 

I've been revising the tree of my GIMBEL family >from Biedesheim bei
Goellheim in the Pfalz. The marriage of Jakob GIMBEL and Anna Maria SALOME
has been recorded on a letter to my genealogist great-uncle as long ago as
1925, but that letter (>from the Biedesheim archivist ) only to deals with
their son, my ancestor David GIMBEL, b.1792 and his descendants. A more
recent 2010 tree >from the Stadtarchiv Kaiserslautern, has 5 more children
for Jakob, born between 1788 (Adam, no 1) and 1810 (the youngest,
Jeannette, no. 6) . My problem is that sibling number 3 is Marie Anna, b.
1796. Would she have been given this name while her mother was still alive,
in view of Jewish naming patterns? The two sources have the names in a
different order, so that difference can't be too significant.

On this newer tree, there is comment that Marie Anna SALOME is sometimes
called Marie Anna Veilchen Meyer. That doesn't feature in the older letter
and I can't see any connection between the two names, so I'm wondering if
in fact there are two women, and that Jacob married twice. I'm wondering
whether his first wife, Marie Anne Salomon (aka Anna Maria SALOME) died in
1796 or earlier, in childbirth, and that most of the siblings are children
of Veilchen Meyer. Jakob GIMBEL apparently died in 1841, but I don't have
records of the death of his wife (or wives).
The tree was made by a respected genealogist, but I do have serious
reservations about another item on it, too.
What do Genners think? Has anyone else researched this family?

There are reverse directories which permit you to see who was living at addresses
in Manhattan and also City Directories. Problem is there are only specific moments
in time and people moved around a lot in those years.

As for official records the closest is the 1890 Police Census (New York City had
the police do a census in the fall of 1890 because they were sure the Federal
Census undercounted residents) and that survives but is not really on line.

The next Census for Manhattan is not till 1900.
