JRI-Poland comes to the New York Conference #poland

Hadassah Lipsius <kesher@...>
 

There will be several lectures and events at the 26th Annual IAJGS
Conference that will be of interest to the friends of JRI-Poland.

On Sunday there will be a JRI-Poland Volunteers meeting which will be
at 9:30 AM in the Soho Room on the 7th Floor. This meeting is for all
Archive Coordinators, Project Coordinators, Town leaders and Shtetl
CO-OP leaders.

Then we will be kicked out of the room so they can set up for the
JRI-Poland luncheon which will be held at 12 Noon in the Soho Complex.
There are already over 100 people who have signed up for the luncheon.
The guest speakers will be Yale Reisner and Ania Przybyszewska Drozd of
the Ronald S.Lauder Foundation Genealogy Project (at the Jewish Historical
Institute, Warsaw). Yale and Ania provide a unique resource for
genealogists seeking information in Warsaw, Jewish visitors to Poland of
all backgrounds and Poles seeking their Jewish roots.

Monday will be a jam packed day at the conference starting with
JRI-Poland Executive Director, Stanley Diamond, who will be speaking at
8 AM on What's New in JRI-Poland. Stanley's lecture will be followed at
9:30 with a lecture given by JRI-Poland Board Members, Mark Halpern and
Judy Baston, who will be talking on how to Make the Most of Your Polish
Research - A Tour of the JRI-Poland Website.

Then at 1:45 on Monday, JRI-Poland Shtetl CO-OP Coordinator for the
towns of Golymin, Karniewo, Krzynowloga Mala and Krzynowloga Wielka,
Marty Meyers, will be speaking on "Uncovering Surnames in Patrynomic
and Early JRI-Poland Records"

To end the Monday JRI-Poland festival, board member Robinn Magid will
be presenting a Computer Workshop at 4:45 on how to search the JRI-Poland
database.

On Tuesday, at 4:45 PM, JRI-Poland Shtetl CO-OP Coordinator for Chorzow,
Czekanow, Gliwice, Olesno, Rybnik will be speaking on "Vital Records in
Prussian Poland: Getting the Whole Picture."

On Wednesday, at 1:45 PM in Salon 4, JRI-Poland Board Member, Mark
Halpern will be speaking on "Strategies for Galician Research and More:
Using the JRI-Poland Database." Actually, if you are researching your
Galicia and/orPoland ancestors it is best to stay in Salon 4 all day
Wednesday since there are several other lecturers in that room that will
be helpful to your research.

There are many other lectures that are of interest to Polish researchers
and I am sure that the conference will be an excellent learning experience
for all. The full schedule is posted on the conference website. The only
thing I suggest is that you get plenty of sleep beforehand.

Have you registered yet for the 26th Annual IAJGS Conference in New
York? Well, what are you waiting for? There are only 7 Days to the Early
Registration Deadline of May 15. Go to http://www.jgsny2006.org

Intro and Searching SCHWARZ Burial in Berlin #germany

Ed Zwieback <ezwieback@...>
 

Hello GerSig,
I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for many years
and have discovered much about my father's extended family, in Hungary,
Croatia and Austria, But I consider myself to be a novice in doing German Jewish
Genealogy research.

see my family at: http://ezwieback.com/ZPK-p/index.htm

I consider myself expert in using a computer. My experience in using
the Internet is extensive . Also, I have access to the Mormon FHL films
here in Los Angeles and do plan to be at the New York Public Library in late May.

I am searching for more info about a cousin Artur SCHWARZ who died in
Berlin in 1929. Arthur was born 14 Apr 1902 in Vienna and according to info
(meldezettal) >from MA8 Archives, Vienna, Artur died in Berlin on 25 Oct 1929.

In the last few years in response to my requests, I have received copies of
complete Death Records >from MA8 Archives,Vienna, which were very useful.
These death records include info on surviving family, which is how I
discovered this cousin. I hope to find the Death Record for Artur in
Berlin. But first, I think I have to locate his burial location.

So, I am searching for the burial (cemetery) info for Artur SCHWARZ in Berlin.
I hope there is a database for Jewish burials in Berlin similar to that in
Vienna; http://friedhof.ikg-wien.at/search.asp?lang=en

I appreciate any help in locating info about Artur SCHWARZ in Berlin.
