Steve Morse will speak at the Mercer County JGS at Beth El Synagogue (NJ) #general

Stephen Cohen
 

The Mercer County Jewish Genealogical Society at Beth El Synagogue (East Windsor,
New Jersey) presents

"The Jewish Calendar Demystified" a talk by Dr. Stephen Morse

The Jewish calendar is important to historians and genealogists because Jewish
vital records use the Jewish dates. This includes not only birth, marriage, and
death certificates, but tombstone inscriptions as well. This talk presents the
Jewish calendar in an easy-to-understand and sometimes tongue-in-cheek fashion as
seen through the eyes of Adam and Eve. But in spite of the levity, the details
presented are factual. The aim is not to make you an expert in calculating Jewish
dates (we have programs to do that) but rather to give you an appreciation for what
is involved in such calculations.

Dr. Stephen Morse is the creator of the One-Step popular and highly useful Website
www.stevemorse.org for which he has received both the Lifetime Achievement Award
and the Outstanding Contribution Award >from the International Association of Jewish
Genealogical Societies, Award of Merit >from the National Genealogical Society,
first-ever Excellence Award >from the Association of Professional Genealogists, and
two awards that he cannot pronounce >from Polish genealogical societies. In his
other life Morse is a computer professional with a doctorate degree in electrical
engineering. He has held various research, development, and teaching positions,
authored numerous technical papers, written four textbooks, and holds four patents.
He is best known as the architect of the Intel 8086 (the granddaddy of today's
Pentium processor), which sparked the PC revolution 35 years ago.

Hello Raphael and fellow researchers,

This seems to be quite a quest: There is a "Wiedergutmachungsakte"
in Berlin - a request for restitution. Within you may find a CV
in which the various "steps" in his life are written down, yet I
do not know whether you have to do research on-site and how
cooperative the team is.

http://wga-datenbank.de/search.php?s=1

In those days not many scholars could afford a university-education - he
may also have achieved his repution without having went to university.
But for one of the Berlin-Universities (Humboldt-Universitaet) you will
find the Matriculation numbers ( Matrikelnummer) online via:

http://wiki-de.genealogy.net/Humboldt-Universit%C3%A4t_zu_Berlin/Matrikel

For fellow researchers: other (not all) German universities can be found
via:

http://genwiki.genealogy.net/Universit%C3%A4tsmatrikel#

By the way: this website is a wonderful research possibility for all
researchers on German genealogy: the Compgen society has set up
comprehensive databases on German genealogy (yet unfortunately all in
German) - with the help of many volunteers. The databases are accessible
without registration and use is free of charge:

http://wiki-de.genealogy.net/Portal:Datenbanken

Wish you luck with your further research!

Re: Death certificate Toronto, Ontario #general

Hilary Henkin
 

Ontario has a 70-year restriction on death records. They're very good that
annually, they send one year's records to be digitized, so they keep current on
releasing records.

Here's some information >from the Archives of Ontario:
http://www.archives.gov.on.ca/en/tracing/the_records.aspx

If there's a way to get records released early, they'd be the ones to talk to. When
I've called them for various questions over the years, they've been very pleasant
and helpful.

(Germany) Interactive Map About Jewish Life in Germany #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

A new collaborative website, Jewish Places, consolidates Jewish Life in
Germany in one interactive map. A prototype was developed for March
20150-May 2016 and the launch of the official website is set for September
13, 2018, I have been able to access at the time of posting this. The
website is being developed with the Jewish Museum of Berlin, the German
Federal Agency for Civic Education, and the F.C. Flick Foundation against
Xenophobia, Racism, and Intolerance.
See: https://www.jewish-places.de/ The site is in German but if you open it
in the Chrome browser it will be translated. Or use a translation service
such as https://translate.google.com/.

The map opens to four areas: places, facilities, people and walks. Some of
the places have photographs which will be stated on the icon. You can find
places of Jewish life, learn more about the project and participate by
sharing photographs and texts. To learn how you can participate see:
https://www.jewish-places.de/de/join. You will have to register with your
email address and username and password.
For more information read their FAQs at: https://www.jewish-places.de/de/faq

If you register, with username, password and email address an email will be
sent. I found my email in the spam box, and I needed to activate by clicking
on the link. The email is in German but using a translation service such as
mentioned above made it easy to understand and click where necessary. Note
if you approve the site to know your location it will take you to where you
are and it remembers! Just click again on walks, people, places or
facilities and it will take you back to Germany.

The Jewish Museum of Berlin is one of the participants in the project and
they also have a website located at:
https://www.jmberlin.de/en/jewish-places

This is an interesting project which is not complete-more information is
requested-that is how you can help. It can help you find Jewish communities,
synagogues and more for your research.

Thank you to Jewish Heritage Europe for informing us about this new website.

I have no affiliation with this project or its sponsors and am posting this
solely for the information of the reader.
