With Joe Cahn, Denver Public Library Reference Librarian

Tuesday, May 16, 2006

Cahn will cover local sources (at DPL and the National Archives) for
directories in print and on film, along with digitized directories >from the
US, UK, Poland, Germany, Russia, Hungary, Romania, and more. Come learn more
about this valuable tool and how it can jumpstart your family history.

Joe Cahn has been a reference librarian at Denver Public Library's Central
Reference Department since 1996. A native of New Jersey, he has been
researching his own family history for more than 15 years. Areas of special
personal interest include New York City, London, Belarus, Ukraine, Poland,
and Russia, as well as Cohanim genetic markers.

Street. Synagogue is located between first and second. Enter through Forest

Early registration fee for Conference ends May 15 #ukraine

Before you book that return plane ticket, or plan to hop on the train to
your summer home or to take off for the beach, please look at the
Conference's Friday morning schedule. We have some very exciting talks and
events planned that morning that you won't want to miss.

We have been blessed with over 260 presentations. Rather than keeping
everyone awake until midnight every night to attend them, we opted to
schedule a full morning of sessions on Friday, Aug. 18, >from 8:00 a.m. to
12:15 p.m.

If you're interested in Jews >from Lithuania, Ukraine, Hungary, Greece,
Transcarpathia, Scotland -- or New York...

If you'd like to gain exposure on the Internet, unearth deep dark secrets
about the criminals in your family's past, or find other "Jews in the
news"...

If you need advice on getting organized, publishing your research, or
conserving your photos and documents...

If you're searching for living relatives or trying to learn more about Shoah
victims or survivors...

If you hope to understand your "chochka" (or how a word comes to be spelled
that way)...

If you want to hear the story of a genealogist who became "suddenly
Jewish"...

...Friday has something for you. I suggest that you read about Friday's
sessions on the Conference web site

www.jgsny2006.org/conference_program.cfm

One of these programs requires some preparation. For "The Jewish Chochka and
Ephemera Road Show" (Session 408), Rafi Guber requests that registrants
bring family items, documents, photos, and ephemera to the conference. He
and a panel will help determine when and >from where the items originated and
any other secrets they may reveal about your family. Please remember to
bring along items for this exciting session.

Stay through the 18th and leave on a chai!

EARLY REGISTRATION MUST BE SUBMITTED BY MAY 15, 2006 !!!

Seeking SCHEWEZINSKYs from Pereyaslav #ukraine

Mark and Tamara Shofron
 

Genners:

I recently discovered through immigration records and
passenger manifests (1906) that my SCHIFF relations
were actually named SCHEWEZINSKY. They were from
Pereyaslav. Does anyone recognise the name or know of
databases that may be of help?

Thanks,

Hebrew Translation on Viewmate #ukraine

Shelly Crane
 

Hello,

I posted a Page of Testimony >from the Yad Vashem web site and am hoping
someone will kindly translate the Hebrew into English.
The link is
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=7793

The submitter was Zinaida FISHLER for my cousin, Mendel LEFFELMAN son of
Velvl and Shifre, >from Pryluki, Ukraine. While I'm not certain, Velvl and
Shifre may be my gr-gr grandparents.

Zinaida submitted PoT's for several other people that I believe may all be
related to Shifre. I'm hoping something in the PoT holds more clues.

The names in the Yad Vashem database that she submitted in the 1950's are as
follows:
Chaim BUGAS son of Ester,
Motel BUGAS son of Ester
Meilech ROISMAN son of Yitzkhak
Avram LITVAK son of Betzalel and Brakha.
Sarah PARCHOMOVSKY (nee LITVAK) daughter of Batzelel and Brakha
Noach PARCHOMOVSKY son of Yitzkak and Brakha

Zinaida's parents were Sarah and Noach listed above.

Please email me privately if you recognize these names or can offer help
with translation. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you!

Conference's Friday morning schedule. We have some very exciting talks and
events planned that morning that you won't want to miss.

We have been blessed with over 260 presentations. Rather than keeping
everyone awake until midnight every night to attend them, we opted to
schedule a full morning of sessions on Friday, Aug. 18, >from 8:00 a.m. to
12:15 p.m.

If you're interested in Jews >from Lithuania, Ukraine, Hungary, Greece,
Transcarpathia, Scotland -- or New York...

If you'd like to gain exposure on the Internet, unearth deep dark secrets
about the criminals in your family's past, or find other "Jews in the

If you need advice on getting organized, publishing your research, or
conserving your photos and documents...

If you're searching for living relatives or trying to learn more about Shoah
victims or survivors...

If you hope to understand your "chochka" (or how a word comes to be spelled
