Does any one know where I can find immigration records for Argentina in the
early 1900's? I may have found a relative who was born in the Ukraine and
emigrated to Argentina in the early 1900's, but I need more information

1:30 PM -- Evaluating Conflicting Evidence to Find "the Truth"

Using their work on the story of Rabbi Hirsh Frankel (a German Rabbi
who was convicted of being a magician in 1712 and imprisoned for 2
years), Arline and Daniel Sachs will explain how to find the truth
when presented with conflicting evidence. While knowing only prayer
book Hebrew, Daniel translated a distant cousin's book about their
common ancestor Rabbi Frankel >from Hebrew to English using the
Internet. That book helped them correct long-accepted information that
had been often quoted in other publications. Using other more recent
examples of conflicting evidence, Arline will show that if you don't
critically evaluate evidence, you will never find what you need for
your genealogical quest.

Daniel Sachs

Father, attorney, and part-time religious school educator, Daniel was
nagged by his Harry Potter loving daughters to take an online profile
test to determine into which magical house he would be sorted. Daniel
refused, claiming that he was a "muggle" and wouldn't be sorted. It
occurred to him that as the direct descendant of a man convicted of
practicing witchcraft, he wasn't a "muggle" but a "squib." This
realization prompted him to find out more about 18th-century witch
trials (Practical Kabbalah) and led him to his distant cousin's book.
With no English version of the book available, Daniel used his minimal
understanding of prayer Hebrew and the internet to translate the book.

Arline Sachs

Former President of JGSGW and former board member of the International
Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies, Arline also was the
co-host of the television show "Tracing Your Family Roots" for 20
years (available online at tracingroots.nova.org).and has authored
articles for Avoytanu, The International Review of Jewish Genealogy.

JGSGW Guest Attendance Policy:
Meetings and most events are free to JGSGW members. Non-members may
attend for a fee of $5. If they decide to join JGSGW at the meeting or

Yosef Bialik #lithuania

Andris V. <andris.vizbaras@...>
 

Seeking information about Yosef Bialik, born 1898 in Odessa, married
and resided in Klaipeda, emigrated to New York City, in particular to
contact descendants in his extended family if possible. My maternal
grandfather saved his daughter Riva >from the Kaunas ghetto in 1943.

My family has corresponded with the extended family of Riva on her
mother's side and they have provided information about the rescue
from their perspective. In contrast we have had no contact at all
with the extended family of Yosef, if any survive. We do not even
know whether Yosef had any siblings or cousins.

Both Riva and her father emigrated to America, separately, and not
long after the war apparently both died, separately.

Riva traveled >from Kaunas to Munich to Bremen and then to New York
City, arriving on December 26, 1946. We believe she attended school
in America for the 1947-1948 school year.

After the school year Riva apparently left the care of her father and
moved to Norwich, Connecticut, perhaps under the care of relatives of
her late mother, Frieda Simon. We seek to contact descendants of her
caregivers in Norwich.

At some point Riva became ill. She entered William Backus Hospital
and died there on November 30, 1948 of chronic nephritis and
hypertension.

We believe Yosef died not long after Riva died, although (after a
diligent search of U.S. records) we have no details.

Selected documents are posted to ViewMate:
