Steve Morse and special tours of the Museum of Tolerance's genealogy
exhibit comprise the March 14th meeting of the Jewish Genealogical
Society of Los Angeles (JGSLA).

JGSLA is delighted to invite members and non-members to a jointly-
sponsored meeting with and at the Museum of Tolerance on Sunday,
March 14, 2004. Our speaker is the incomparable Steve Morse talking
on: A Potpourri of Stephen Morse's One-Step Genealogical Research
Tools: Ellis Island, Census, Maps and more! Dr. Morse is scheduled
to speak at 1:00 p.m.

In addition, the Museum of Tolerance is offering *special* tours for
those attending the lecture of their genealogy exhibit: Finding Our
Families, Finding Ourselves (FOFO), narrated by Billy Crystal. This
multimedia exhibit, features the families of Maya Angelou, Billy
Crystal, Carlos Santana, and Joe Torre. The 90-minute tours are
scheduled for 10:30 a.m. and 3:15 p.m. The cost is $8.00 for adults
and $7.00 for seniors, defined as 62 and older. The 3:15 tour will
be conducted by a professional genealogist and FOFO exhibit creator
who will provide a "behind the scenes" insight into the exhibit.

Please send your check, made out to the JGSLA indicating the names
of persons covered by your check AND the time of the tour you wish
to attend to: JGSLA PO Box 55443 Sherman Oaks, CA 91413. The checks
MUST be received by March 4, 2004.

There is no charge to attend the lecture by Dr. Morse. However,
advance registration is required. Please e-mail your reservation with
the names of all the persons in your party to jan@JGSLA.org. or call

names of people in your party. Pre-registration must be done by March
8th. If you are registering for the tour, it is not necessary to also
register to attend Dr. Morse's lecture.

Steve Morse, an amateur genealogist has been researching his Russian-
Jewish origins for the past few years. His websites on searching the
Ellis Island database and the 1930 census have attracted attention
worldwide. In 2003, he received the IAJGS Outstanding Contributions
to Jewish Genealogy award. Dr. Morse is a computer professional with
a Ph.D. in electrical engineering, and he is best known as the
designer of the Intel 8086 microprocessor (grandfather of today's
Pentium processor), which sparked the PC revolution 20 years ago.
Dr. Morse will discuss how to use his one-step programs in helping to
find "lost" ancestors on Ellis Island, the 1910,1920 and 1930 U.S.
Census, and more, including maps and the Social Security Death Index.

The Museum of Tolerance takes security very seriously. Everyone must

Re: Telekhany #belarus

Gene Warech <operawriter@...>
 

A while ago there was some discussion of the town of Telekhany (and the
nearby town of Lahysyn (sometimes called Logoshin), whether they were
the same or whether Telekhany still existed.
Telekhany still exists as a separate town under the name of Celjachany
but at the same location (52 31N, 25 51E). It also appears with a
Polish name which would be transliterated as Telekhany on another map
I found on the internet.

Hello genners,

I would be very grateful for help translating the birth record
of Perla AGRODOWSKA who was born in 1872 in Dabie, Russian
Poland. There is some additional writing inserted to the left of the
text that looks interesting.

The number is VM3626 and can be found at

Please respond directly to me, not to the list.

Thanks in advance.

Recommendation for digital imaging services #general

Mervin Rosenbaum <mervinr2@...>
 

The Greater Houston Jewish Genealogical Society recently had over 50
microfilm reels of the Jewish Herald-Voice, covering the years >from 1908 to
1992, converted to digital images on CD. This was done primarily to make the
data more readily available to volunteers transcribing it into the index of
life cycle events database(now online for the years 1908-1921).

The work was done by a company in Minneapolis. We are quite pleased with the
results. The job was done at relatively low cost and involved working with
many low quality reels. Many times reels had to be rescanned using
different parameters to achieve satisfactory results. If any person or
organization is considering a similar project, I will be pleased to furnish
the name of the company and appropriate contacts.

What would be the Hebrew equivalent of Louis? #germany

levyduffy@...
 

Hello GerSIGers,
The name Louis crops up several times in the families of Ruben LEVY and
Isaack LEVY, whom I believe were brothers.

Ruben's eldest son Levin (b. 1817 in Moisling), died in Hamburg in 1860. In
the death register he is recorded as Louis.

The eldest son of Ruben's fourth son, Siegmund, was named Louis (b. 1854 in
Hamburg).
Isaack's eldest son was Louis (b. 1844 in Segeberg)

Can anyone tell me the likely Hebrew equivalent of Louis, i.e. the name of
the father(s) of Ruben and Isaack? Rgds,
