Thanking all that helped me, and sent me photos of a
friends tombstone.
Now I am looking for the E mail address of the

She is in the Knights of Pythias Section, that maybe

Spring Valley, New york 10977-2040

There is no mention of how to obtain the book on the above page, Bernard.

Neither in the speech here:

The publication being by "Das Bunderarchiv" [federal archive] as seen
here of the 1986 version:

will undoubtedly mean the 2006 edition is also by them.

Jewish Genealogy Conference Early-Bird Registration ends May 15 #poland

Roni S. Liebowitz
 

The clock is ticking. Only a couple of days left to receive the early
registration rate for the 26th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish
Genealogy to be held August 13-18, 2006 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel
in New York City.

Early registrations must be made (or postmarked) on or before May 15.
No time to fill in the complete on-line registration form now? No problem.
You can respond to the basic questions to save a spot and up-date
your registration when you have more time to think about your ancestral
name tag, select the special events you want to attend, etc. Go to
http://www.jgsny2006.org. On the menu bar, click Registration. Read that
introduction and then proceed to register.

Questions? Check out the Frequently Asked Questions which also has a link on
the menu bar.

This year, for the first time, the host society is sponsoring its own
special experiential, evocative, and educational exhibit. You'll see it,
learn >from it, and even be part of it.

Another first at the conference, is our own version of the "Antiques Road
Show," where experts help identify the Jewish treasures you bring to them.
"The Jewish Chochka and Ephemera Road Show" -- will be held Friday, August
19th. Remember to check the attics, closets, and basements and learn more
about those items and photos you've saved through generations or just
acquired. Find out where and when they originated. Perhaps your chochka
is a recognized treasure of more than sentimental value.

The "meat and potatoes" of the conference includes more than 250 sessions,
SIG luncheons, Birds-of-a-Feather meetings, cemetery visits, computer
workshops, tours to Ellis Island and the Lower East Side, a gala banquet,
videos, resource room, repository fair, vendor room, musical entertainment,

You still have some time. Go to the website and get that special rate. We
really look forward to seeing all of you in New York this summer.

Danzig surname adoption list, 1814 - NALDEX #germany

A & B Algaze <Algaze@...>
 

I seem to remember around last July that James Bauer of Garden City, New
York posted a request for information regarding name change lists. At the
time I sent him a copy of the Danzig surname adoption list of 1814 however it was
copied >from a Family History Center microfilm and was VERY difficult to read.

In the meantime, Logan J. Kleinwaks and Roger Lustig of the Danzig SIG have
translated the list and put it on line. You can find the "list of surnames
adopted by Jewish citizens in Danzig in 1814", when Prussia reoccupied the
city, online in the Articles section of the Danzig/Gdansk SIG website in the upper
left hand corner, under "News: 12 May 2006" at www.jewishgen.org/danzig

Or directly at: http://www.jewishgen.org/danzig/1814.php

It can be found on Microfilm #1,184,410 and is entitled:
"General-Verzeichniss saemmtlicher in dem Departement der
koenigl. Regierung von Westpreussen vorhandenen Juden welchen
das Staatsbuerger-Recht erheilet worden. Marienwerder: 1814."

In English:
General listing of all the jews available in the Department

what do these Hebrew abbreviations mean? #general

In the notes section of the Gdansk chapter of Yad Vashem's Pinkas HaKehillot
Polin, the Hebrew abbreviations aleph-mem-khet-"-yud and aleph-tsadi-"-mem
are found, the meanings of which I do not know. I suspect they refer to
archives or libraries. If you know what they stand for, please contact me

York City. Early registrations must be made (or postmarked) on or before
May 15. No time to fill in the complete on-line registration form now? No

http://www.jgsny2006.org. On the menu bar, click Registration. Read that
introduction and then proceed to register.
Questions? Check out the Frequently Asked Questions which also has a link on

This year, for the first time, the host society is sponsoring its own

Another first at the conference, is our own version of the "Antiques Road
Show," where experts help identify the Jewish treasures you bring to them.

19th. Remember to check the attics, closets, and basements and learn more
about those items and photos you've saved through generations or just

is a recognized treasure of more than sentimental value.

The "meat and potatoes" of the conference includes more than 250 sessions,
