Dear JGS Members & Friends,
We're just winding up for our Opening Meeting on September 23rd. This is
the time we encourage each of you to bring along a new member, & to make

So much was accomplished at the 2002 IAJGS Conference in Toronto; those of
us who attended have a lot of news to share. In addition, I had a wonderful
time looking through the sales kiosks, & there will be some excellent new
books on hand for you to look through for the first time.

Roz Shuler will be making arrangements for a comfortable venue for this
meeting, & you will be given all the details when they are final.

==Thanks for letting us know. I hope this is "good news." I know the
Archives have been working under great stress with limited busget and
limited facilities. Probably anything that will help them move out of that
cramped basement space will be welcomed by all--the administration and
staff of the Archives above all.

I hope the new location will offer the opportunity to store the rare
archival material and that the new facilities--archive retrieval, copies,
microfilm readers etc--will measure up to the hopes that the Archives have
been expressing all these years.

Is this a new building or will the archives share space with another
organization? How far is this >from King George Street? We'll miss the
proximity of the library and other collections, of course (not to mention
the student cafeteria), but I'm sure the new location will offer many
advantages for all.

In any event, Behatzlacha to the Archives on their move, and may it be a
blessing for everyone.

Regarding Yarzheit Observance #general

Dream Builder <dreambuilder@...>
 

I am trying to figure out what day my grandfather died. According to the
Social Security Administration he died in November 1986. According to
Goldsteins' Rosenberg's Raphael Sacks Inc. his yarzheit observance date was
November 29, 2000 or Kislev 2. Kislev 2 in 1986 was December 4th. Would his
yarzheit be observed on his burial date rather than his death date?

My grandmother who lived in the Bronx is buried in Riverside Cemetery in
Rochelle Park, NJ
The Jewishgen website has a section which lists all the cemeteries in
the NY area including NJ. I believe phone numbers are included.

Re: Chicago Trib, Tues., 08/20/02: Re-Discovering Forgotten Cemeteries #general

Al Yellon <ayellon@...>
 

I read an article in the Tuesday, Chicago Tribune, 08/20/02, about an
extraordinary sixteen year old teenager who began a dedicated plight to
re-discover forgotten cemeteries with a school project. So far, this
person has identified fifty (50) cemeteries "and counting," and brings a
grass mower on each journey. Regretfully, I do not have a copy of this
article. This person may have a list of the information indicated on the
tombstones, and if so, the information may be pertinent to this research
aims of this group.
This article is available online at:

http://www.chicagotribune.com/features/chi-0208200222aug20.story

The online Tribune requires registration, but it is free. I read this
article too and it is well worth your time.
