If you are searching your Lithuanian roots and are attending the IAJGS
2016 conference in Seattle, come to the lecture "Researching Your
Litvak Roots -- with LitvakSIG and More" by Judy Baston on Thursday
afternoon at 3pm in room Willow B. Judy is an expert and will guide
you to success. This is a wonderful opportunity for all Litvaks.

Searching for answers in the Vilna Ghetto #lithuania

Warren
 

I just found the Vilna Ghetto listing for my aunt, Doctor Devorah
Marczsalkowicz, who was shot by the SS on they day they abandoned her
concentration camp (she was doctor to some SS officers and knew too
much about them).

The Ghetto list shows 2 children sharing her surname and address in
the Vilna Ghetto. We know that she had no children, and were not aware
of any cousins with the Marczsalkowicz name.


Vilnius Ghetto: Lists of Prisoners Page 142 May 1942:

MARSCHALKOWITSCH, Boris b. 1928 Address: Ligonines 9 - 5a

MARSCHALKOWITSCH, Rachela b. 1938 Address: Ligonines 9 - 5a

MARSCHALKOWITSCH, Debora b. 1905 Address: Ligonines 9 - 5a


Does anyone have any experience of this type of situation, and what
the possible scenarios might be, or how we might try to search
further?

the table is "official" - somehow it feels as if it is!

Prague death registers at Jewish Theological Seminary #austria-czech

IAJGS Report #austria-czech

E. Randol Schoenberg
 

We had a terrific turnout in Seattle for the Austria-Czech day at the IAJGS Jewish genealogy
conference. The day began with our guest speaker Vaclav (Fred) Chvatal speaking about
early migration to small Bohemian villages. Then we had a large SIG meeting where everyone
introduced themselves. It was great to see one of our early SIG founders, Barry Spinak, who
may have accidentally volunteered to take over the webmaster position again, so our web
pages can be updated. :-) We talked about our need to index all of the town records on
Badatelna, following the example set by Art Spira, who recently added over 9,000 records
from Trebic to JewishGen. Our luncheon speaker Thomas Fuerth regaled us once again with
a fabulous walk through the crowded old Jewish town in Prague, following a family through
several generations, showing where they lived with old photos and paintings of the town.
After lunch I presented my annual "What's New in Austrian and Czech Genealogy"
presentation. The powerpoint can be downloaded at http://tinyurl.com/jeeny66. In the late
afternoon Vivian Kahn spoke about migration to Hungary and Burgenland >from Bohemia and
Moravia. We had a lively discussion afterwards. In the evening Tony Kahane spoke about
members of the Viennese Schifferes family who were sent to Dachau, Drancy and Auschwitz.

After it was all done, Alex Calzareth told me about some amazing Prague death registers that
he found online at the Jewish Theological Seminary

1680 - 1857: http://garfield.jtsa.edu:1801/webclient/DeliveryManager?pid=143974&custom_att_2=direct
1857 - 1868: http://garfield.jtsa.edu:1801/webclient/DeliveryManager?pid=141338&custom_att_2=direct
1870 - 1890: http://garfield.jtsa.edu:1801/webclient/DeliveryManager?pid=41125&custom_att_2=direct

These kept me up very late as I pushed back my Prague family another generation and
discovered two new family names (MISLAP and RAUSNITZ)!

Thanks everyone who attended, and especially to our conference coordinator Vera Finberg,
who worked so hard to make everything such a success. We are already talking about next year
in Orlando, Florida.

The conference last until Friday, and I have another talk today on Collaborative Genealogy on
Geni.com (powerpoint at tinyurl.com/grotgdm). With so many of us working together, and the
availability of so many records, it's obvious that we have the best SIG in all of Jewish
genealogy!
