Completion of Lviv Vital Records Transcription Project #poland

Eric M. Bloch
 

The Lviv vital records transcription project, in process for almost 9
years, has now been completed. The information covers births:
1805-1872; deaths: 1805-1880; and marriages: 1801-1866. During the
course of the project, updates have been added to the online, searchable
All Galicia Database (AGD) appearing on the Gesher Galicia website:
http://search.geshergalicia.org/. The final update has already been sent
to our volunteer transcription team and will be added to the AGD in
about six months. Images of the original records can be found on the
various LDS microfilms cited as sources for each record found in the AGD.

We've had a total of 40 volunteers >from 7 different countries who
completed anywhere >from one to 240 assignments.A total of 149,957
records were transcribed. In alphabetical order, our team members were:

Shaul Berger, Lukasz Biedka, Eric Bloch, Arieh Bolyos, Eli Brand, Fay
Bussgang, Helene Celnick, Stephen Denker, Shosh Eizenshtein, Linda
Epstein, Ria Eulau, Rita Falbel, Rebecca Fenning, Howard Fink, Roger
Fleischman, Ann Harris, Debbie Jurblum, Ronald I. Kaplan, Ellen Korpi,
Ramona Leff, Jay Lenefsky, Helen Nash May, Judy Petersen, John Philipp,
Toni Platus, Judith Ritter, Eva Robotnick, Melvin Rogow, Sergio
Rosarios, Morton Rumberg, Errol Schneegurt, Dr. Sari Silver, Suzi
Silver, Philip Spain, Talila Stan, Uriah Yaniv, Philippe Volvovic, Dr.
Joanna Zimmerman, Odeda Zlotnick, and one who wished to remain anonymous.

Kudos go out to all our volunteers for a job well done. Our top
producer, Errol Schneegurt, completed a whopping 240 assignments! Two
others exceeding the century mark include Judith Ritter and Mort
Rumberg. A special thank you to Dr. Sari Silver and Toni Platus for
their meticulous attention to detail in validating all of the records.
They not only reviewed all the transcriptions, but each completed well
over 100 of their own transcriptions. Their amazing talents have allowed
us to create what we believe to be a highly accurate database. Thanks
also to Gesher Galicia for hosting this valuable database and making it
available to the public at large.

We hope anyone with Lviv roots will have great success using the
database. Happy hunting!

Register Today! 37th Annual IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy July 23-28, 2017 #poland

Adam Brown
 

Registration is now open for the 37th Annual IAJGS International
Conference on Jewish Genealogy, July 23-28, 2017, at the Swan Resort
on the grounds of Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Save money with
early registration and guarantee a room by visiting the conference Web
site now at http://www.iajgs2017.org.

The schedule includes more than 200 presentations on just about all
areas of Jewish genealogy by the best-known lecturers in their fields.
A major emphasis of these presentations will be to teach the strategies
that the attendees -- both advanced and beginner -- will need to take
their family history research to the next level. Space has been set
aside for the presenters to coach attendees outside the lecture hall,
and a resource room will include free access to numerous fee-based
genealogy databases.

More than 50 affinity groups including Special Interest Groups, Birds
of a Feather, and Facebook groups are planning lecture series,
workshops, breakfasts, lunches and meetings.

Beginners especially are invited to this conference where they will be
initiated into all the joys of getting started in Jewish genealogy with
a track of their own.

DNA testing is the cutting edge of Jewish genealogical research, but it
remains a puzzling mystery to many. This conference will include a
weeklong series of talks on every relevant aspect of this valuable
research tool.

Given that this is the first IAJGS conference ever held in the southern
United States, special attention will be given to the history of the
Jews of the South and the Caribbean basin. Experts on Florida,
Martinique, Curacao, Cuba, Panama, Mexico and other places that were
destinations for Jews and conversos fleeing the inquisition will make
presentations at the conference, and a special track will be devoted to
helping individuals with converso family history explore whether classic
genealogical resources and tools can help them link themselves >from the
present day back to the Spain's Golden Age.

Harvard Professor Henry Louis (Skip) Gates, host of the popular PBS
television show "Finding Your Roots", will address the Thursday evening
annual awards banquet with a talk on "Genealogy and Genetics in America."
On Sunday evening, Professor Robert Watson will talk about our Nevis-born
U.S. founding father entitled "Alexander Hamilton, the Jews, and the
American Revolution." On Tuesday evening, Professor Hasia Diner will
deliver the Pamela Weisberg Memorial Lecture commemorating the centennial
of America’s entry into WWI in her talk entitled "1917: A Turning Point
in American Jewish History".

All week long, the acclaimed IAJGS Film Festival will return with a full
schedule of offerings on Jewish cultural and historical topics.

The conference is co-sponsored by the International Association of
Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) and the Jewish Genealogy Society
of Greater Orlando.

Discounted hotel rooms are available >from July 17 through August 1 so
bring your family and come early and/or stay late and enjoy Orlando's
extensive outlet shopping and theme parks.

For further information about the conference, visit the conference
website at http://www.iajgs2017.org and contact the conference
organizers at info@iajgs2017.org

INDIANER Khodorov (Chodorow) #poland

 

Dear Marcia,

How strange. I assume you are aware that there are quite a lot of surviving
records >from Khodorov, albeit scattered across a number of different
archives? Miriam Weiner's Routes to Roots website helpfully indexes them
here: http://www.rtrfoundation.org/results.php?townName=KHODOROV&;testing=.
Have you also been in touch with Mark Halpern and Patrick Atlas who are
coordinating the AGAD archives project for Khodorov?
http://jri-poland.org/town/chodorow.htm I notice that on the Gesher Galicia
All Galicia Database there is mention of a Leib and a Selig INDIANER on the
1883 Homeowners List for Khodorov.

Hope this is helpful and not too basic.

Best wishes,

Naomi Leon

Greetings,

I've been searching for many years and still can't find any INDIANER
documents birth, marriage, death for my father, uncles, aunts, grandfather
all born in Khodorov (Chodorow), all born before 1900.
One uncle's marriage showed up. yes INDIANER is not a common name and I
found others, not family in other cities in Galicia.
INDIANER is mentioned in Beider's book.

Where are these records?

Marcia, I know you have been at this for years so I needn't mention
looking in other locations. But if you are still coming up empty,
you should consider that the name was something other than INDIANER
- maybe similar, maybe not.

If I were you, I'd Look for patterns of given names and approximate
dates in and around Chodorow that might fit your family and go >from
there.
