Jewish Genealogical Society- Hamilton & Area
Wednesday, March 22, 2006
7:30 PM to 10:00 PM

215 Cline Avenue North, Hamilton, ON

We are pleased to welcome Audrie Schell whose topic will be "Preserving Your
Documents".
Ms. Schell is the Book and Paper Conservator at Hamilton's McMaster
University. She has held that position at McMaster for the past 8 years. Ms

trained in-house. Over a 3 year period she apprenticed with Hubert Leurs, a
Master Binder >from Belgium, who now works in Montreal. Ms Schell holds an
Arts BA >from Laurentian University (Sudbury) and a Diploma in Museum Studies

All genealogists gather documents, pictures, newspaper clippings, etc. over
time. These documents are precious to us because they tell the stories of
our families and usually can't be replaced. In order to safeguard our
documents we need to know what conditions or other factors might cause them
harm so that we can them make decisions as to how they can be safely stored.
Ms. Schell will explain how to protect our precious documents >from damage
which could come >from light, humidity and temperature as well as giving us
guidance for safely storing these treasured items.

Please join us for a presentation which should be mandatory for all
genealogists.

The Jewish Genealogical Society - Hamilton & Area (JGS - H&A) is a

METCHICK #belarus

alex berman <bermanalex@...>
 

Hi. I'm trying to trace my maternal great grandmother who lived in
Hrodna/Grodno in Belarus. I've only just started this process and this
email is my first enquiry. Her name was Ettie Metchick and I believe
she would have come to England with her parents, by boat, in around
1890/1900. Does anybody out there know of her or her family? Or have
any advice on how I might persue this research?

Thanks

Renee Steinig <rsteinig@...>
 

It's the time of year when thoughts turn to Passover -- and to
IAJGS Achievement Awards. So I pose these "Four Questions" to all
of you:

1) What coveted award have Warren Blatt, Stanley Diamond, Susan
King, and Miriam Weiner all received?

2) For what achievement have Yad Vashem, Alexander Beider,
Stephen Morse, and the JewishGen Yizkor Book Project been
recognized?

3) Why and when have kudoes gone to David Fox and to the JGSs of
Los Angeles, Montreal, and Ottawa.

4) The JGSs of Greater Philadelphia, New York, Palm Beach County,
and Los Angeles have been honored for excellence in what area?

For answers, see the lists of distinquished winners of IAJGS's

question: "Who else belongs here?" If you have benefited >from
a wonderful project, internet resource, publication, or
programming that isn't listed, let your JGS know and propose a
nomination -- this year if you and they can hurry, or for 2007.

o Societies are welcomed -- in fact, urged -- to nominate their
own publications, projects, and projects. Don't be shy!

Hello to you all

On September last year I made an inquiry about SUTZKEVER >from Smorgon
to the Lithuanian State Historical Archives asking them to assist me
to built the family tree.
The LVIA informed me they " keep the vital records of the Lithuanian
Jewish communities dating up to 1940 if the documents were not
destroyed during wars and fires.
In Tsarist period (till 1918) Smorgon was a place in the Oszmiany
district of
former Vilno gubernia (Vilnius province). Now it is a place in Grodno
province, Belarus.Our archive has not received any vital records of
Smorgon Jewish Community for keeping." Smorgon was destroyed in 1915.
"The archive keeps the Revision lists and some other lists for the
different years of the first part of the 19 Th century for families
registered in Smorgon Jewish Community" I ordered those. It will take
at least a year and half.

Avraham SUTZKEVER a partisan, a well known Yiddish poet and the younger
brother of my father Moshe SAVIR SUCKEVER z"l lives in Tel Aviv.We are
all part of this family what ever spelling is used.

Without any first name, it may be difficult to find your relatives.
According to our usual sources of information, there were about 175
births of MAZURKIEWICZ in France between 1891 and 1990, and about
1400 MAZUR during the same period.
There are currently about 50 persons named MAZURKIEWICZ in the French
telephone directory.
The index of French naturalizations shows 18 persons, most of them
born in Poland, several born in France. There are also 2 CEDERBAUM,
one born in Warsaw, the other one being in France (probably his wife).

King, and Miriam Weiner all received?

2) For what achievement have Yad Vashem, Alexander Beider,

3) Why and when have kudoes gone to David Fox and to the JGSs of
Los Angeles, Montreal, and Ottawa.

4) The JGSs of Greater Philadelphia, New York, Palm Beach County,
and Los Angeles have been honored for excellence in what area?

Since 1998, the Jewish genealogy community has acknowledged
important contributions by individuals and groups with IAJGS
Achievement Awards, presented annually by the International
Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies. Thank you to all
who have already submitted nominations for the 2006 awards. For
those who haven't completed their nominations yet, here are some
reminders:

o Awards are given in four categories:

Lifetime Achievement Award

Outstanding Contribution to Jewish Genealogy via the
Internet, Print or Electronic Product

Outstanding Programming or Project that Advances the
Objectives of Jewish Genealogy

Outstanding Publication by a Member Organization of IAJGS

o The Call for Nominations appears at
www.iajgs.org/awards_files/awardnomincall.html
Please be sure to click on each award category for criteria
for that award.

o Although nominations must come to the Awards Committee >from
an IAJGS member organization (www.iajgs.org/Member-Index.htm),
we encourage JewishGenners to be part of the process. Please
look at the lists of past recipients and ask yourself a fifth
question: "Who else belongs here?" If you have benefited >from
a wonderful project, internet resource, publication, or
programming that isn't listed, let your JGS know and propose a
nomination -- this year if you and they can hurry, or for 2007.

o Societies are welcomed -- in fact, urged -- to nominate their
own publications, projects, and projects. Don't be shy!

o Nominations for the 2006 IAJGS Achievement Awards should be
submitted by April 1, 2006. We encourage you to get your 2006
nominations in and to start thinking about next year's awards
as well.

o Awards will be announced and presented on Thursday, August 17,
at the 26th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy
in New York City.
