JewishGen News - Edition #4 #austria-czech

Groll, Avraham
 

Dear JewishGen Family,

A few months ago, we inaugurated the first edition of the "JewishGen
News." Since that time, I hope you have found the periodic editions
to be both inspirational and informative. In this issue, as opposed
to offering a summary of recent progress and accomplishments (of
which there are many), I would like to share some news and
information which speaks to the broader goals and objectives of our
vital organization.

Each day, JewishGen.org provides thousands of people throughout the
world with the opportunity to research their family lineage, ask
questions, exchange information, and learn >from others. I am sure
anyone who engages with JewishGen is awed by the extraordinary and
vital resource it has become. Simply put, JewishGen is now the most
important resource for Jewish genealogy in the world. The breadth,
depth and diversity of its offerings, >from both an archival and
networking perspective, is incredible, and unparalleled.

Most remarkable, all of this has been done with a small staff and a
devoted team of volunteers, who regardless of their location, join
in the pursuit of a common goal - the preservation of Jewish family
history and heritage for future generations.

Since the very beginning of JewishGen's existence, we have valued
free access to information, offering all of our resources at no
charge. These values are fundamental to everything we do. In this
regard, we are grateful that many members of the broader Jewish
community have recognized the importance of our work, and have
financially supported JewishGen's efforts, permitting us to
operate "in the black" for nine consecutive years.

But success is measured with an eye on the future, and in this
regard, I am pleased to announce that we have begun a comprehensive,
system-wide, modernization of JewishGen's technological
infrastructure. We're very excited to be entering a new phase of
JewishGen's growth. Our team has identified Solr and MySQL database
technology as the most suitable platforms to usher in a new era of
innovation, and thus maximize our ability to help Jewish family
researchers. This effort has been underway since this past February,
and we have developed a comprehensive plan with metrics and
benchmarks embedded in the workflow, enabling us to perform
continuous evaluations throughout the duration of the project. As
part of this effort, we will be hiring additional staff at JewishGen
Headquarters, which is based at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New
York City.

The first phase of this effort is scheduled to be completed by early
Spring of 2018. At that point, we will immediately begin the second
phase of the modernization effort, which will focus on efficiency and
the user experience.

In terms of leadership, we are extremely fortunate to have a new
Board of Directors (elected two weeks ago), comprised of outstanding
leaders and innovators who bring experience and expertise navigating
the various complexities which manifest themselves within any non-
profit, and particularly one as broad and diverse as JewishGen.

The JewishGen Board is led by Bruce Ratner, a successful businessman
and philanthropist, and long-time supporter of JewishGen. He is
joined by Michael Glickman, President & CEO of the Museum of Jewish
Heritage; Peter Kalikow, President of H. J. Kalikow & Company, LLC;
and E. Randol Schoenberg, a Los Angeles based attorney who was
recently portrayed in the film "Woman of Gold," and who is well
known to our JewishGen community in his role as the coordinator for
the JewishGen Austria-Czech SIG.

On May 1st, I was fortunate to celebrate nine years working for
JewishGen. I never would have imagined such a long tenure, and I
consider each and every user to be part of our valued JewishGen
family. Together, we have celebrated many success stories, and it is
my deepest wish that each of you will experience the joys which come
from connecting with relatives, and understanding our collective
Jewish history and heritage.

Thank you to everyone who has offered comments and suggestions the
past few months. Your feedback is always welcome, and I encourage
you to contact me anytime via phone (646-437-4326) or email
(agroll@JewishGen.org). With your continued help and support, we look
forward to taking JewishGen to the next level!

Wishing you all the best,

Avraham Groll
Director

Viewmate translation request - Hebrew #austria-czech

airbair@...
 

I've posted a matzevah for which I need a translation of the Hebrew
portion. It is on ViewMate at the following address :
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM56664

The stone is for Lottie KAHNWEILER, who was born in Neustadtl, Bohemia
and died in Mobile Alabama in Nov. 1867. I believe there were two
Bohemian towns named Neustadtl, and would like to know which one is
likely to be the right one.

I'd particularly like to know the Hebrew date(s) on the stone, the
father's name (which I assume is there), and any other information,
including any places mentioned, and the formulaic praise(s) of the
dead.

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.
Thank you very much.

Searching for English vital records #general

krothstein
 

Hello,
I have confirmed through DNA that someone is a 2nd cousin of mine on my
paternal side. His grandfather was Jacob Goldstein (the name was changed
from Redstone). The real name was Rutshtein and they are >from Kovno area of
Lithuania. Jacob married an Esther Littlestein in 1882 in White Chapel,
London. The immigrated to Chicago in the late 1880's. I would like to find
possibly a marriage certificate that might list Jacob's parent's names and
or Esther's real name and parents. They had one son born in England in 1883
by the name of Isadore Redstone. I know that there is a book at the LDS
Library that has abstracts but is there possibly any other records
available. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Please feel free to
respond to me privately.
Thank You,

Carol Hoffman
 

Join LitvakSIG on Wednesday, July 26 for our luncheon with Professor
Elisa New. She will be speaking on her book Jacob's Cane: A Jewish
Family's Journey >from the Four Lands of Lithuania to the Ports of
London and Baltimore

Drawn to an image of her great-grandfather's ornately carved cane,
scholar Elisa New embarked on a journey to discover the origins of her
precious family heirloom. Treading back across the paths of her
ancestors, she travels >from Baltimore to the Baltic to London in order
to find and understand an immigrant world profoundly affected by
modern German culture, >from the Enlightenment through the Holocaust.

Deeply ambitious in its narrative sweep, Jacob's Cane captures the
rich texture of life on several continents as New's family searches to
establish itself in the tobacco trade. A fascinating history of one
family's story of progress, innovation, and struggle, Jacob's Cane
will change the way we think about the Jewish American experience.

We look forward to seeing you!

Viewmate - identification of family picture #general

Paul Silverstone
 

I have posted a photograph of a family in Winnipeg taken in 1894. It is on
ViewMate at the following address ...

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM56700

I have an idea who they are but I have no proof. The picture was in a collection
of a FINKELSTEIN cousin in Winnipeg. There is nothing to indicate what family it
is. I have an idea it might be the family of my great-grandfather's brother Chaim.

So if you know any Finkelsteins >from the 1890s and see one or a resemblance in
the picture please let me know.

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

When I go to the pra.in.ua website it has a few words in Ukrainian which

I also saw the posting that Joanna Shear saw and posted about the database
of Ukrainians 1650-1920 https://pra.in.ua/
mentioned in the  article
http://euromaidanpress.com/2017/06/24/huge-genealogical-database-of-ukrainia
ns-born-in-1650-1920-opens-online/#arvlbdata
When I go to the pra.in.ua website it has a few words in Ukrainian which
Google translates as "to be conducted technically".   Has anyone had any
success in accessing the database? IF so how did you do it?

ViewMate translation request - German #germany

Dear 'Genners,

I'd greatly appreciate the translation of 4 documents I have uploaded to
ViewMate.

They are:

(1) 13 Feb 1885, marriage of Nathan COHN and Erla Auguste MEYER
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM56682

(2) 06 Dec 1885, birth of Gertud COHN
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=56683

(3) 28 Dec 1917, marriage of Nachman Raimond ERGAS and Gertrud COHN
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM56684

(4) 03 Aug 1939, death, Nachman Raimond ERGAS
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM56685

Although I am able to usually pick out the names, there are many words I
do not understand, particularly those placed between the names. I would
also like to know the finer details beyond just names and dates, such as
what are the stamps, what do they represent/mean?

Please respond using the online ViewMate form.

Thank you for any help you are able to offer.
