Re: this new group

Hi Fay,
This is a replacement of the old system which only allowed for posting in plain text, no accented characters, no images, etc.
We are hoping this new system will help us appeal to new audiences and to new users who were previously dissuaded from posting.
Thanks for your help!

Re: What symbols are used in Jewish family history reports in place of the words birth, marriage and death? #germany

Joachim Mugdan
 

Hansmartin Unger asked about the use of the symbols *, oo and + for birth,
marriage and death. All of them have Christian associations, which is why
many avoid them in Jewish genealogy.

In English descendant reports etc., the abbreviations "b.", "m." and "d."
are standard and don't take up much space, but Hansmartin may have been
thinking of a report in German, where one-letter abbreviations are not
available. As far as I know, there is no generally accepted alternative, but
I don't see any need for abbreviations or symbols.

Date of birth and date of death: A hyphen or dash between them is
sufficient. If one of the dates is unknown, "1921-" and "-1937" are still
unambiguous. I prefer "1921-?" and "?-1937", because this leaves the format
"1921-" for a person who is still alive.

Spouse: In a descendant report, I place spouses on a separate line, preceded
by an equals sign =. (I don't recall whether I've seen this elsewhere or
whether I based this on the double lines some people use for marriages in
tree diagrams.) Even that is not needed if you use the Henry numbering
system and append "a" for the spouse (or "b" etc. for subsequent marriages).

Date of marriage: One can either add this in parentheses after the equals
sign (if used) or append it at the end of the entry, together with other
important dates (e.g. university degree, immigration etc.). In this case one
would have to add "Heirat" ('marriage'); although this is longer than a
symbol, that shouldn't be much of a problem.

Logging in / replying

Alan Shuchat
 

I think I can post a question or comment to the group by sending an email to JewishGen@groups.io without logging in. But when i get a digest, I think I must log in before replying to a post. Is that correct?

Is there a way to set a signature block such as the one below, writing from my email client (Apple Mail on a Mac) that I can use when replying to a post? When I reply I’m not in the email client anymore. I don’t see this explicitly in the Profile settings, e.g., under Identity or Preferences.

Re: Group -- the Luddite position

I agree with Dick. I won't open attachments from unknown sources. I'm sure you have gotten emails from people you know, when their computer has a virus, so the email makes no sense; well if you open an attachment, it can do terrible things to your computer. I have good virus protection, but I won't open attachments.

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2019 pre-Conference update for the
Memorial Plaques Database (MPD). The MPD database can be accessed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/ The MPD database includes the
data >from plaques and Yizkor lists >from synagogue and other organizations.
Many of these sources include patronymic information.

This update added approximately 12,600 records and 11,200 photos >from 93
organizations and war memorials worldwide. This update brings the Memorial
Plaques holdings to 190,100 records and 135,300 photos >from 356 synagogues,
institutions and memorials representing 37 countries.

Of particular note in this update is a collection of approximately 1,400
records for UK related war memorials >from 29 countries. Other large
collections come >from Colorado, Indiana and Louisiana.

We believe that the MPD is a good example of how users of JewishGen's
databases can "give back". If you are a member of a synagogue or other
organization with memorial plaques or Yizkor lists, please consider helping
us to grow this database. You can find more information on submitting data
