As a sign of our times, there was a conspicuous presence of security people
at the Jewish conference in Toronto. Garry Stein of the hosting society told
me the conference was the largest Jewish conference to be held in Canada so
far this year. The conference area was in a sub-basement of the Sheraton
Centre Hotel making it easier to isolate the events. People wanting access
to the area had to pass security guards, not of the type you see at exits to
department stores, but more like ex-Royal Canadian Mounted Police. There
were two security men there that were obviously Israelis. The extra security
had no impact on the conference attendees. For example, there were no metal
detector screenings or searches of personal belongings--you just knew the
security people were there.

Audio tapes are available ...Order forms for the Jewish
conference can be gotten by e-mailing Metro Media, vkirton@sympatico.ca.
Include your mailing address. Cost per tape is CDN$10.00 plus shipping. All
U.S. national conferences and some past Jewish conferences are taped by
Audiotapes.com. For example, there are 51 tapes of my past lectures--some
repeat topics as I tend to give updated versions of the same topic at the
various annual conferences. Price is $8.50 plus shipping. The genealogy
portion of their Web site is at

Future conferences for IAJGS are:
Washington, DC - July 20-25, 2003

The place's original name was NAGYMEGYER in Komarom county,
Csalloko:zi district. Today this village is in Slovakia and called
VELKY MED'ER, about 20 miles northwest of Komarno (Komarom).

"mea culpa" on the Toronto meeting notes.

I'm supposed to type up a summary and submit it to our coordinator.

Please bear with me-I'm just trying to catch my breath as my 3 kids
return to school this week.

Will try not to delay much longer.

Nocher, Nochem #general

Joan Parker <housemom@...>
 

Dear Genners;

I have personally thanked all who took the time to reply about Nocher.
Everyone who has written has said the same thing basically: Nochem, which
make sense. I went back and looked and the last letter is definitely an
R, but possibly the writer misunderstood the name. So I am going to
make a correction in my Family Tree Maker notes.

This is such a wonderful, caring group of people!

I know what nochus means in Yiddish, but recently I found information

Am Steinhof Mental Hospital - Wien #general

Yaacov Slizak <yslizak@...>
 

Dear Genners,

Is there any available information on patients records for the *Am
Steinhof* mental hospital in Wien, Austria?

The person I am researching was supposedly admitted to this institution
around 1928, and probably transported to Poland between 1938 and 1942.

Please respond privately.

Thanks,

Czaple, near Lviv? #general

Yaacov Slizak <yslizak@...>
 

Dear Genners,

Is there any place called *Czaple* near Lviv?

I was told by two different sources, in relation to a centain person I'm
researching:

- Was born in a place called Czaple, in the Galitzia area, Poland.
- Was born in a town close to Lviv, Ukraine.

The closest Czaple I found is not even close to Ukraine.

Can someone shed some light on this puzzle?

Thanks,
