22nd IAJGS International Conference #rabbinic

JGS of Canada (Toronto) <info@...>
 

The Major Event of the Jewish Genealogical Yearly Calendar Has Arrived

http://www.jgstoronto2002.ca/

This is your gateway to the 22nd IAJGS International Conference On
Jewish Genealogy where aficionados >from beginner to expert will
gather to learn, study, meet, and plan. This year, the conference
will be meeting in Toronto, Canada, August 4-9, 2002. No effort is
being spared to build on the successes of past conferences. We are
assembling the most informative and skilled lecturers ever gathered
together to address the accomplishments and challenges of Jewish
genealogical research.

All of this will take place in a comfortable environment conducive
to learning and collaboration. Toronto is a safe, beautiful, clean
city, and the Sheraton Centre Toronto is a wonderful hotel whose
facilities and location are ideal for hosting our programs and
activities. The favourable Canadian exchange rates and travel and
accommodation discounts also make this conference very affordable.

Meticulous thought has been given to the design of the Toronto2002
Conference Web site. Visit it at http://www.jgstoronto2002.ca/
You can learn about the hotel accommodations and the programming,
sample some of what Toronto has to offer genealogists and tourists.
Online registration and downloadable forms will be available
shortly. Effortlessly, find the answers to Frequently Asked
Questions (FAQ). Peruse the vast information on speakers and
programs, which we will be updating continuously.

We urge you to register for your accommodations and make your travel
arrangements as early as possible. Toronto is a very popular summer
destination, and while every effort has been made to ensure the
availability of rooms, those who procrastinate may not be able to
find rooms in the conference hotel. Friday and Saturday may be
especially problematic because of the ending of a major Caribbean
Festival in Toronto. Ideally, we recommend arrival Friday August 2,
2002 to ensure a spot in the conference hotel. For those who arrive
on Saturday, we will be making alternative one-night arrangements if
the Sheraton becomes overbooked.

Please register and book early for special conference rates and free
hotel night and flight specials. For further details see the
Conference Web site.

Please visit http://www.jgstoronto2002.ca/ *now* and learn how to
register for this exciting event. You will not want to miss a
moment of it.

Thank you for your attention and we look forward to seeing you.

Pinskers:

In the course of research the name of the congregation has changed names
between the 1940's and the 1950's while many of the surnames [and some given names]
have remained the same. Previously, it was Dorshei Tov Anshei Pinsk. Later it became
Ezras Achim Bnei Pinsk. Can some knowledgeable Pinskers enlighten us as to this change of name ? The researchers [Mr Zelman and I are not landsmen as our ancestors came >from faraway Dokshitz and Mogilev] would appreciate your input in this matter.
We shall also include a Pinsker Workman's Circle list of names and a
transliteration of duespayers names >from the second decade of the 20th
Century. The names are in beautiful but near-undecipherable cursive Yiddish.
We are using our analysis to get at the names and are even in contact with Mr
Zeliger in Israel for a second opinion.
When our labors are completed we hope to have the lists arranged by Edward
Rosenbaum to be presented on the Belarus website

Re: "Steppin " Poland, (KACHKA) #general

On Mar.18, 2002 Lowell Nigoff asked in part about "Steppin" Poland.

Perhaps this place was "Stepina" (Stempina) which is about 88 kilometers >from
Prezmysl, according to "Where We Once Walked." But I found no entries for
this town in my usual geographical reference books.

On the Internet I found mention of Stempina by Jack Apfelbaum at:

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/frysztak/frysztak.htm

He writes that his father was born in Stempina, about three miles form the
small shtetl of Frysztak.

Re: Matching groups of people in Israel with the villages in Eastern Europe from where they came #general

There is no directory as such, but there are traditions, e.g Kibbutz Sarid
is often called the Czech kibbutz because many of its founders came from
Czechoslovakia; Kibbutz Kfar Blum has many members >from Latvia; Rosh Pina
was originally settled by Jews >from Rumania, etc. etc. There are books
listing places in Israel which will often mention the origins of the
founders.

The word MESCHANE means PETTY BOURGEOUIS.

Irene Kudish
The answer is nor correct. In Russian language, the word <M-E-SHCH-A-N-I-N>
(singular; that's how it should be spelled, if we use the Beider
transliteration table) means <a city dweller> literally.
In their attempt to direct the "workers - peasant class struggle" against a
large number of the populace, that was hostile to the Revolution, the
Russian Communists and V.I. Lenin in the first place, classified MESHCHAN
(plural) as <petty bourgeois> .
