additional candidates for election as directors of the corporation
by submitting to the secretary of the corporation, in writing or by

of the meeting of members at which directors are to be elected,
a statement setting forth the name, address and qualifications of
each proposed candidate, accompanied by a written consent of
each proposed candidate to be named as a candidate and to serve
as a director if elected.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
In order for self-nominations to be available in time for review on
the website and on the ballot, they must be received by the Election
Committee prior to emailing of the ballots to members and the
beginning of the voting.

Would it be conceivable that IAJGS organise one such
international conference in Europe, or aren't there enough
European members to justify it?

Hello,

This is our first posting to this site, but In the future, it would be a
good practice for anyone else to provide the name/email address of the original
poster, date, and what the question is you are answering.

In the mean time can someone fill us in on this information, as the archives are
not up to date. Possibly we might have something to offer.

Information regarding Claims Conference Records #hungary

ajsmith98@...
 

Hi Everyone,

I recently returned to New York >from another fruitful trip to
Israel. I made one interesting research
discovery that I think will be of interest to the group.

I would like to provide new information on the database
collection called the ?Claims Conference, Hungary?. This searchable database is
included in the All Hungarian Database. I discovered that the names listed in the
Claims Conference database appears to have originated >from individual files that
still exist at the Central Zionist Archive.
These lists were compiled by the Jewish Agency of people requesting to
make aliyah. The majority of these requests were made in 1944 and they appear to
be last ditch efforts to evacuate loved ones >from Europe. Titles >from the lists
include ?Special Cases? or Emergency Cases?. It is likely that
the large majority of these individuals were sent to concentration camps and did
not succeed in making aliyah.

I will provide two examples >from my own family. I had one cousin who was living in Mandate
Palestine in 1939. Her mother and siblings stayed in Europe. In July 1944, she
made a request to the Jewish Agency to bring her mother to Palestine. I located
the original file for her aliyah request which included a number of details about
the person trying to make aliyah. In another instance, I had a relative who was
part of the Beitar Movement in Budapest. He had no known close relatives in Israel
. His name also appeared on more than one list for aliyah. When I obtained his file, there was a single page form with his name on it without any
additional information. In this case, his file did not provide any new information about my relative in question.

These files can best be searched in person in Israel but can also be accessed by
email request through the Central Zionist Archives.

Take care,

Adam Smith

Re: Hungarian Treasures #hungary

I have read with delight that not one but two entries have been found on Herzl
technically at the same time. I understand that his birth record is on its way to be
posted on JewishGen. As for the marriage data that David Laufer found, I wonder if
that could be included anywhere, - it would be nice if it was. :)

In case there is a way to make that entry somehow part of our database, please,
note that his Hungarian name is actually Tivadar, Hungarian for Theodor.

Earlier this year I sent a message to this discussion group about my
discovery in the archives of the Holocaust Museum in Washington of a
1944 list of Jews >from Mosonmagyarovar. Shortly thereafter someone
contacted me and informed me that he also had this list and was
planning to construct a database >from it. Unfortunately I lost the
address of this person. So, if anyone knows about this matter please
contact me privately.

To clarify, the Adar leap year is 7 times in 19 years, not anything as
regular as once in four years (that's the English calendar).

One should remember that Adar Alef and Adar Bet occur only once in 4
years.
So if you know the YEAR you can find if that was a "leap year" or not.
Maybe the whole question will be solved if you find that the specific
year was NOT a leap year,
and there is one one Adar month in that year.

Last week the Jewish Museum Munich opened its new exhibition "Places of Exile
03: Munich and Washington Heights". The third exhibition in the series
"Places of Exile" provides an insight into the New York neighbourhood of
Washington Heights, which during the 1930s became a center of German Jewish
Immigration.

Here, immigrants >from southern Germany, together with Rabbi Dr. Leo Baerwald,
last rabbi of Munich's main synagogue destroyed in 1938, founded congregation
"Beth Hillel".

The exhibition "Munich and Washington Heights" presents this New York
