Trebic Cemetery Write-up #austria-czech

For those connected or caught-up in the recent Trebic (Moravia) exchange, I
draw your attention to an article on the Trebic cemetery in Judaica Bohemiae
27/1, pp. 82-91. Don't know in which language it is written.

Abraham STERN of Trebon b. 1747 #austria-czech

susiestree@...
 

Because of the kindness of many, I received a document in the mail today that
documented my family back to Trebon circa 1745--one generation further back
then I had previously been. I learned that my great great grandmother's name
was Johanna STERN and her father was an Abraham STERN of Trebon b. 1747. This
document was sent to me >from a Tom in Sweden. I also learned that even without
my tree computerized by me--the FTJP has me there and in great detail. For
this another Tom needs to be thanked. Tonight I am very grateful to both of the
Tom's on my family tree and Jewishgen!

Hi,

It is on the corner of 48th Street and 16th Avenue in Boro Park
(Brooklyn) on the second floor. I do not have a phone number or
actual address. There is a big sign on the side of the building.

I am sorry, but I have no first-hand information. I am surprised it
took this long for the question to surface on this forum.

You'll never know how wonderful this past week or so has been. I've learned more
and felt more connected to my dear departed father who was born and grew up on
Woolmore St in the Tower Hamlets of Mile End than ever before. Thanks to all
of you who made it possible for me to print maps of the location of the
places where he lived and census information as late as 1901.
Sure there is more to do, but I feel like I'm afloat with thanks to all of you!

Helen Nussbaum Reiss <helen@...>
 

Dear Genners:

I am looking for my great-grandmother, Hawa BORENSZTAJN and
great-grandfather, Zelman LITWAK who lived in the Radom area of Poland.

They had many children, Mortka Litwak, David Litwak, Beryl Litwak, Malka
Litwak to name a few.

Any of these names look familiar.

Reference to Soviet office in Yizkor memoire #general

Avigdor&Laia <lbendov@...>
 

Can someone please explain the Russian acronym found in a Yizkor memoire:
RAIFO? In Russian it is
Raionnyi Finansovyi Otdel (Raion Finance Department), but even in English
the word "Raion" is untranslated. There were branch offices in Minsk and
elsewhere where survivors >from Poland went for papers or authorizations
after the War, but it is not clear to me what this office did. Perhaps they
kept lists of names of people of interest to genealogists?
Is this still a functioning office?

Time: 1:30 PM
Place: The Newman Building at Gratz College
Old York Road (Route 611) and Melrose Avenue
Melrose Park, PA

***
Speaker: Sallyann Amdur Sack, Ph.D.
Topic: Jewish Genealogy is Going Academic: the International Institute for
Jewish Genealogy

The past 25 years has seen the amazing growth and development of the whole
field of Jewish genealogy-built entirely by volunteers and people devoted to a
hobby. For many reasons, Jewish genealogy is important to the Jewish
people-and should be. The question is where we go >from here.

A group of Jewish genealogists and academics >from around the world believe
that the time has come to transform our passion into a recognized academic
discipline and subspecialty within the world of Jewish studies. Last year we
academics created a Founding Committe for the International Institute for Jewish
Genealogy, a non-profit academic institute in Jerusalem, associated with the
Jewish National and University Library to conduct scholarly research into
Jewish genealogy and family history throughout the Jewish world.

As chair of the Founding Committe, Dr. Sack will describe the Institute's
rationale, its planned programs and projects, how it will interface with the
existing world of Jewish genealogy and its current status.

***
Come to the meeting 30 minutes early for a Question and Answer session
preceding the general meeting.

For all who are researching Philadelphia roots and need information
on local resources; cemeteries, funeral directors, repositories (and
much more) please visit the JGSGP website:
