Arlene Beare
 

I have updated my Guide to Jewish genealogy in Latvia and Estonia and it
is now in ebook format. I must stress that this will be of use to
researchers not only >from Latvia and Estonia but elsewhere in Eastern Europe. =
There is a brief chapter on Sources in the UK and with one click you can
go to the National Archives. I have a brief Introduction to Genetic
Genealogy and one on Social Media with links to sites with a more detailed
explanation.
This is the first ebook published by JGSGB (Jewish Genealogical Society
Great Britain), who will benefit >from the sales. There are a few copies
in print format but we wanted it to be mainly published as an ebook.
The second edition of my Book was in 2006 and many telephone numbers and
addresses of Archives have changed as well as Internet sites and email
addresses which means that the second edition is now out of date.
These have all been updated. There is information on Passports both
Internal and External.
The book contains the excellent chapter written by Nick Evans on Emigration
detailing how our Ancestors got to other Countries >from Latvia always
remembering that many Lithuanians may also have sailed >from Libau now
Liepaja.

THE URL is

Israel Consul General to attend film screening at IAJGS conference #ciechanow #poland

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

There are so many exciting things happening at this summer's conference.
We are thrilled to announce that Israel's consul general Ravit Baer
will present the August 11 screening of the acclaimed Israeli movie "The
Dove Flyer." Ms. Baer, a career diplomat in the Israeli foreign
service, served in Europe and Africa before becoming Israel's Consul
General to the Pacific Northwest.

"The Dove Flyer" will be shown as part of a Jewish film festival
that has been curated for the conference by leading Jewish film scholar
and teacher of cinema Dr. Eric Goldman. The film is based on Eli Amir's
blockbuster novel of the same name, brings to life the fragile, doomed
world of the Baghdad Jewish community in 1950.

It is one of many films in the festival of 33 motion pictures that
celebrate Sephardic Jewry, a major track of this summer's conference.
Other highlights of the Seattle conference include the opening night
keynote address by Dr. Devin Naar and the banquet address by Judy
Russell, a Certified Genealogist and Certified Genealogical Lecturer.

In addition, as at previous conferences, key lectures and presentations
will be made available through LIVE! a real-time video streaming service
after up to 90 days after the conference. It's not too late to register
for the conference or to purchase LIVE! Visit the conference website,
www.iajgs2016.org , for more information about all aspects of the
conference.

We're looking forward to seeing so many of you in Seattle August 7-12.

Correction in information about The Dove Flyer #ciechanow #poland

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

In our previous message, we incorrectly identified Deputy Consul General
Ravit Baer as Consul General. As previously announced, Ms. Baer, a
career diplomat in the Israeli foreign service, served
in Europe and Africa before becoming Israel's Deputy Consul General to
the Pacific Northwest. We are honored to have her present the August 11
screening of the acclaimed Israeli movie "The Dove
Flyer," and apologize for incorrectly identifying her.

"The Dove Flyer" will be shown as part of a Jewish film festival that
has been curated for the conference by leading Jewish film scholar and
teacher of cinema Dr. Eric Goldman. The film is based on Eli Amir's
blockbuster novel of the same name, brings to life the fragile, doomed
world of the Baghdad Jewish community in 1950.

If you can't get to the IAJGS Conference #ciechanow #poland

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

We have two great opportunities for you. Both of these are available
through the conference website under "New Registration." Yes, even if
you can't get to the conference, the only way to purchase anything is
through registration. We have to know who you are and we have to be able
to make sure we can contact you if we need to.

1) You can still purchase LIVE! (and you will be able to throughout the
conference and afterwards. the advantage to purchasing now is that you
can view the sessions as they are happening through LIVE! streaming.
Can't arrange your schedule to fit our sessions? No worries - LIVE! for
those who purchase it, is available after the conference is over, on
demand for 90 days - that means you can pick the sessions yo want to
hear (maybe all of the ones on LIVE!) and listen to them as many time as
you want for 90 days.

Check out the conference program to see which sessions are LIVE! from
the conference website. LIVE! is sponsored by Family Search.

2) If you are in Seattle and can't make the conference, why don't you
join us for the opening session on Sunday evening, August 7, and stay
for a fantastic dessert reception. The keynote speaker, Dr. Devin Naar
is sponsored by MyHeritage, and the dessert reception fllowing is
sponsored by Ancestry.com

Both LIVE! and the Keynote/dessert reception are available through the
conference registration. Go to the conference website at
http://www.iajgs2016.org/ . Choose programs to check out what wil be
LIVE! Go to registration and choose "new registration to purchase LIVE!
and tickets to the keynote and dessert reception.

Contact the conference chairs (if you need to) through the website.
Better idea - figure out which department you really need information
from under "About" and then "contacts" and contact the person you need
information >from directly.

See you in Seattle

Yizkor Book Project, July 2016 #poland #ciechanow

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

The Yizkor Book Project in July was characterized by a great deal of updates
as you will see below. It is always encouraging to see the projects make
progress - step by step - till the final goal is reached and the complete
Yizkor book is translated. This amazing progress is due to the untiring
determination of the coordinators leading these projects and they certainly
deserve our salute for all that they do.

In the individual Yizkor book projects, the blue links appearing in the
table of contents of each project lead to the articles that have been
translated. I'm quite often asked about why articles that don't have blue
links can't be read and if a paid subscription is required to see the
"hidden" articles. No, there is no charge for reading the articles that have
been translated and, on the contrary, and our basic aim is to allow free,
global access to everyone for the translated Yizkor book material. So if the
article isn't available and you are interested in reading it, the next
logical step would be to assist with financial support in the translation of
the article. For this it is worthwhile looking at and donating to the
specific Translations Fund project if it is listed on the JewishGen-erosity
page (link at the end) or by contacting myself so that I can provide you
with an estimate of the cost of translation and you can decide if it's
something you are able to take on.

For those of you who would like to know more about the Yizkor Book Project
and will be at the upcoming IAJGS Conference in Seattle, I warmly recommend
you taking part in our Yizkor Book Birds of a Feather meeting. This year it
is being led by Max Heffler who is and has been an integral partner in our
Yizkor Book team and has a great deal of knowledge and experience regarding
the project.

For those of you who are going to the conference, I do wish you an excellent
and rewarding time whilst you're there.

And now for all the changes and additions that were carried out in the
Yizkor Book Project over July.

We have also added in one new entry:

#Ciechanow #Poland Correction in information about The Dove Flyer #ciechanow #poland

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

In our previous message, we incorrectly identified Deputy Consul General
Ravit Baer as Consul General. As previously announced, Ms. Baer, a
career diplomat in the Israeli foreign service, served
in Europe and Africa before becoming Israel's Deputy Consul General to
the Pacific Northwest. We are honored to have her present the August 11
screening of the acclaimed Israeli movie "The Dove
Flyer," and apologize for incorrectly identifying her.

"The Dove Flyer" will be shown as part of a Jewish film festival that
has been curated for the conference by leading Jewish film scholar and
teacher of cinema Dr. Eric Goldman. The film is based on Eli Amir's
blockbuster novel of the same name, brings to life the fragile, doomed
world of the Baghdad Jewish community in 1950.

In addition, as at previous conferences, key lectures and presentations will
be made available through LIVE! a real-time video streaming service after up
to 90 days after the conference. It's not too late to register for the
conference or to purchase LIVE! Visit the conference website,
www.iajgs2016.org , for more information about all aspects of the
conference.

We're looking forward to seeing so many of you in Seattle August 7-12.

We have two great opportunities for you. Both of these are available
through the conference website under "New Registration." Yes, even if
you can't get to the conference, the only way to purchase anything is
through registration. We have to know who you are and we have to be able
to make sure we can contact you if we need to.

1) You can still purchase LIVE! (and you will be able to throughout the
conference and afterwards. the advantage to purchasing now is that you
can view the sessions as they are happening through LIVE! streaming.
Can't arrange your schedule to fit our sessions? No worries - LIVE! for
those who purchase it, is available after the conference is over, on
demand for 90 days - that means you can pick the sessions yo want to
hear (maybe all of the ones on LIVE!) and listen to them as many time as
you want for 90 days.

Check out the conference program to see which sessions are LIVE! from
the conference website. LIVE! is sponsored by Family Search.

2) If you are in Seattle and can't make the conference, why don't you
join us for the opening session on Sunday evening, August 7, and stay
for a fantastic dessert reception. The keynote speaker, Dr. Devin Naar
is sponsored by MyHeritage, and the dessert reception fllowing is
sponsored by Ancestry.com

Both LIVE! and the Keynote/dessert reception are available through the
conference registration. Go to the conference website at
http://www.iajgs2016.org/ . Choose programs to check out what wil be
LIVE! Go to registration and choose "new registration to purchase LIVE!
and tickets to the keynote and dessert reception.

Contact the conference chairs (if you need to) through the website.
Better idea - figure out which department you really need information
from under "About" and then "contacts" and contact the person you need
information >from directly.

See you in Seattle
