JFRA Petah Tikva Thursday, Oct. 17 #belarus

Schelly Dardashti <dardasht@...>
 

JFRA Petah Tikva will begin its year's activities at 8 pm Thursday,
October 17.

Micha Reisel will present
"The Changing Borders of Europe"

We can better understand the environment in which our ancestors lived,
the events which led to their migration, the languages of official
records, and where these records may be kept, if we recognize which
government was in control at different historical periods.
Your ancestral home may well have been subject to the rule of a number
of
countries when your family lived there.
For just one example, take the towns in Galicia.
On one document the town may be written as being in Austria.
On another document, it is in Poland.
And, on more recent documents, the town is in the Ukraine.

The meeting will be held at Susan Edel's home in Petah Tikva,
Reservations are strongly recommended.
For the address and directions, contact Gilda Kurtzman
<gildak@...>

Best wishes

Hurricane Lili may shut down JewishGen & GerSig #germany

GerSig@...
 

from JewishGen:
There is a distinct possibility that Hurricane Lili will hit the Houston
Texas area within the next day or so. Even while we are watching the
storm's progress, we have been preparing should we be hit.

Everything possible is being done to ensure that JewishGen looses no data
and all our records are safe, but we may be off line, depending on how
severely the area is affected.

You may follow up on weather forecasts here.

Marilyn Feingold questioned how could Shtetl Seeker show the same town in
Moldova with six different latitude/longitudes. Answer: It is not the same
town with six different latitude/longitudes, but six towns in Moldova with
the same name.

Is Homler the same as Gomel ? Landsmanshaften research #general

Jerome Seligsohn <jselig1315@...>
 

Genners:
Because I have hit a mother lode of names circa 1950
and 1970 of the Homler Brothers Society I wish to
check out with the membership whether Gomel and Homler
is one and the same. Where Once We Walked establishes
the connection but so many of the names do not appear
on JGFF that I want some feedback as I have difficulty
typing up these lists. Incidentally the lists come
replete with street addresses which may not appear on
the web page for reasons of privacy. The materials
come >from the 50th and 72nd anniversary celebrations.

Could someone please tell me if it was common for familes >from Lithuania
to establish themselves in the city of Kagalnik, Russia in the 1870's?
The family I am researching was >from Lithuania, but I have found a branch
living in this Northern Caucus area in the 1870's. I am aware that Jews
have lived in the Caucus area for some time, but am curious about the
migration of Ashkenazi Jews into this territory.
