Dear Logan,
Are you volunteering?

As it happens, someone else has volunteered to make a quick index of the
surname lists on Reel 2--and may actually be on the job even now.

Dear everyone else:
There have been many suggestions regarding indexing and other projects
in this group. I hope to be able to make some announcements and ask
some general questions of GerSIGgers within the next month or so.

Thanks for your patience,

Roger Lustig Princeton, NJ USA Research coordinator, GerSIG

Judenlandtage Billigheim, Neudenau, Klein Wallstadt #germany

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

I stumbled upon Judenlandtage lists >from Billigheim, Neudenau, and
Klein Wallstadt for 1784, 1789, and 1793 in the Leo Baeck Institute's
Berthold Rosenthal Collection:

Billigheim
http://www.archive.org/stream/lbi_brc_mf484_reel04#page/n374/mode/1up

Neudenau
http://www.archive.org/stream/lbi_brc_mf484_reel04#page/n376/mode/1up

Klein Wallstadt
http://www.archive.org/stream/lbi_brc_mf484_reel04#page/n378/mode/1up

Amazingly, the Billigheim list includes detailed notes about three
out-of-town marriages, two involving relatives of mine and correlating
with tax lists and name adoption lists >from the towns where the
marriages occurred, also in this collection. It's unclear to me why
the marriages were included, or how common this is. One of the grooms
was >from Billigheim, as were the brides of the other two marriages.
Their fathers are all included in the list as attending the
Judenlandtage.

These lists do not seem to be identified in the finding aid for the
collection.

Perhaps, a town index linked to images of all the tax lists,
name adoption lists, etc. in the collection would be very helpful.

Announcing the Obermayer German Jewish History Awards for 2014 #germany

Arthur Obermayer <obermayer@...>
 

The German Jewish Community History Council, GerSIG and the Berlin
Parliament are pleased to announce their Call for Nominations for the
annual Obermayer German Jewish History Awards to be given to non-Jewish
Germans who have made extraordinary contributions to preserving
vestiges of former Jewish life in their local communities, including
historical records, cultural material, cemeteries and synagogues.

The *** call for nominations *** can be obtained at:
http://www.obermayer.us/award/nominate.htm
and the deadline for submission is September 23, 2013.

Thousands of Germans have carried out such activities as volunteers
because they feel it is the right thing to do. The preservation of
Jewish material is one of the few ways in which they can respond
constructively to their country's horrible past.

This award provides Jews throughout the world with the opportunity to
recognize and honor German individuals who, in many cases, have devoted
their lifetimes to such important endeavors. As Jewish genealogists, we
have been the recipients of their good work.

Many of you previously submitted worthy nominations. Those nominees who
have already received Certificates of Commendation are prime candidates
for this year's awards. They will only require updating of the prior
submissions.

This will be the 14th year for such awards, which will be given January
2014 in Berlin. Each awardee and his/her spouse will be invited on an
all expenses paid trip to Berlin to receive the award at the elegant
Plenary Chamber of the Abgeordnetenhaus, the home of the Berlin
Parliament. Successful nominators are also invited to attend all of the
award ceremony events in Berlin, where they will meet with the award
recipients they have chosen to honor.

The honorees will receive a framed certificate and an honorarium to be
used for the furtherance of their work. Awardees' contributions will be
described to attendees and to the local, national and international news
media. These awards have in the past received extensive worldwide media
coverage. See: http://www.obermayer.us/award/news.htm

If you know someone who may be appropriate for nomination, further
information -- including the Call for Nominations and profiles of
previous award winners and the jury -- can be obtained at:

http://www.obermayer.us/award

You may obtain a hard copy of the Call for Nominations by sending an
email to: germanaward@...

or a letter to the:

German Jewish Community History Council
239 Chestnut Street
West Newton, MA 02465 USA

Remember that the deadline for submission of nominations is September
23, 2013.

JRI Poland #Poland Viewmate Translation Request (Polish) - Nusym Kiper death certificate #poland

Genealogykid20 <genealogykid20@...>
 

Good Evening,

I have an ancestor >from Krylow, Poland named Nusym Kiper. There are two
different records for a Nusym (Nuchym) Kiper who died in Krylow. Here
they are:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM26106

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM26107

If you could help me figure out his age, I could probably determine
which of these relates to my ancestor. Of course, knowing his wife,
children, or parents names would also be helpful. I believe his
occupation related to the local shul in Krylow (synagogue servant).

Thank you for your help.

Sincerely,
Aaron Biterman
