New Procedures to Search the JGFF #latvia

Susan E. King <susan.king@...>
 

Dear JewishGen'rs,

Within the next few days, you will notice a change when you visit the
JewishGen Family Finder (JGFF). We are now implementing a registration
screen similar to that which has been in use for searching the Family
Tree of the Jewish People (FTJP) for the last few weeks.

This change is part of a major project which has been under development
for nearly a year called "CURE" -- the Central User Registration
Environment. The intent is to cure many of the ongoing challenges
JewishGen has faced due to the phenemonal growth we continue to
experience. These challenges include forgotten passwords, lost
researchers, and duplicate registrations. Most critical is the
increasing need for tightened security which will result in greater
protection for the data you provide.

CURE will integrate all the separate registration processes for the
JGFF, the FTJP, all Lyris Mailing Lists, ViewMate, ShtetlSchleppers,
JewishGen-erosity, the JewishGen Mall, the Guest Book, and the
interactive databases. CURE will also serve to integrate the systems
used for JewishGen's administrative functions. Over the coming months,
all of these interfaces will be replaced with a single central logon and
registration point -- CURE.

Here's how it works. When accessing the JGFF to perform a search, you
will now be asked to logon using either your e-mail address or your
JewishGen ID Number (JGID, formerly called the "JGFF Researcher Code"),
and your Password. If you have forgotten either, they can now be
retrieved automatically by using <
http://www.jewishgen.org/CURE/password.html >.

What CURE will do for JewishGen is enable us to better manage all of our
programs, assist in our planning process and provide the information we
need to better serve our constituents.

In addition to greater security for your contact information, your
benefits will include not having to worry about updating your contact
information individually in each program or mailing list, but to update
it in one place and one place only -- CURE. We expect this "one stop
update" to be a great convenience and believe it will also result in far
fewer "lost researchers" who forget to change their e-mail address in
each and every place it is listed on JewishGen.

The new CURE logon screen will apply to the JewishGen Family
Finder(JGFF) within the next few days. For complete information about
the JGFF, see the "JGFF FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions about the JGFF"
at < http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/jgff-faq.html >.

In the coming weeks, this logon screen will also be implemented across
other JewishGen programs and databases and we will be posting notices
accordingly in each of our mailing lists.

We welcome your feedback and comments on the new system so that we can
continue to make this process easier!

The ketubah is the property of the bride. It never becomes
part of the community's records; all you'll find in the
records is a listing of the date, place and names of the wedding.

The ketubah may be passed on to a daughter, and may today be in the
possession of a descendant, but is more likely to have been discarded
along the way.

Re: birlad #romania

my gm's family came >from birlad. i never see any references to birlad on
this sig. is that because it had a small jewish community.

i was lucky in that a researcher was able to provide my gm's birth
certificate as well as those of several siblings. apparently the family
moved to birlad after the older children were born and i will probably
never know where they were originally from.

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Dear Brethren,

On May 30, 10 o'clock local time, a Memorial Service will be held at the Kosice Jewish Cemetery, marking the 60th anniversary of the deportations which left Kosice between May 15 and June 2, 1944.

This announcement is done as a tribute to the everlasting memory of my aunt Flora Stark and my uncle Miklos Stark who were deported to Auschwitz together with other
8,000 martyrs. May their souls rest in peace.

Searching for DAVIS from Pittsburgh #general

Robert Mandelbaum
 

I am searching for the descendants of Libby SILVERBERG and Harry DAVIS,
from Pittsburgh.  They had three daughters, Rose (born about 1897),
Isabelle (born about 1903), and Edna (born about 1904). 
I don't believe that Rose ever married, but I think that Edna did
and had children.  I'm not sure about Isabelle.  In any event,
I don't know their married names.  Does any of this ring a bell?

Thanks very much.

I am searching for the descendants of my cousin, Dorothy BROAD SILVERSTEIN
(also known as "Dottie").  She and her husband Isaac ("Izzy")
SILVERSTEIN had two daughters, Merrill and Janet.  Although
I do not know their married names, I believe that Merrill's
husband is a rabbi and that she works in his synagogue. 
As far as I know, Janet is an AIDS program administrator and
her husband is a political scientist.  I assume that they all live
in the New York or New Jersey area (at least they used to). 
Is this familiar to anyone?

Thanks very much.

US Army online database - new? #general

Dear group,
Somone in another group I subscribe to found a wonderful new database at
NARA. It's part of the ADD - Access to Archival Databases System. This
particular database is the "Electronic Army Serial Number Merged File, ca.
1938 - 1946". It has records for close to 9 million enlistees in the U.S.
Army for WWII. You can search for individual names or by state and county,
or a combination. Wildcards are permitted, too.

To search by state and county, start at
http://www.archives.gov/aad/index.html. Click on SEARCH, then select ALL
SERIES, the Army file is the sixth entry down.

>from there it's pretty self-explanatory. Be sure to select the state and
county codes >from the code lists - don't type the place names in.

There are other databases in the ADD - check it out!
