Date   

The Conference Hotel is Almost Fully Booked #romania

Chuck Weinstein <cmw521@...>
 

The Seattle Sheraton Hotel has booked all of the available rooms for the
Conference and has only a handful of deluxe rooms left. They are pricing
the deluxe rooms at $239 for Conference attendees. These rooms are
available at other times for $379 per night. Once these rooms are booked,
there will be no more room at the Conference Hotel.

We have made arrangements with the Hyatt Olive 8 hotel, about 4 blocks from
the Sheraton, for a limited number of rooms at $289 per night. Given that
the Conference coincides with the height of the tourism season, and there
are no other major hotels downtown with rooms available, this was the best
we could do. The Hyatt will give that rate to Conference attendees who use
the following link: https://aws.passkey.com/event/15080205/owner/69782/home.
The website is being updated to reflect that information.

As you can tell, Seattle is the place to be, August 7-12. Make your plans
to attend the Conference and reserve your space if you have not already done
so. And if you have not reserved your meals or banquet tickets, you should
do so soon before they sell out. Most of our computer labs have been
waitlisted, and we are arranging to add additional labs. We will not be
able to do that with the meals.

See you in Seattle!

Who knows about Kobylnica Ruska? #galicia

Rose Katz <rjtalents@...>
 

Does anyone know anything about what happened to the Jews during World
War 2 in this small Galician town? My father was born there and lost all his
family without any information.

The city of Wielkie Oczy is near Kobylnica Ruska and they also used to go to
Lwow (Lemberg at the time of the Austrian occupation).

Thank you in advance.

A special request to our LitvakSIG members - can you provide some ideas for contacts in support of our Continuity Fund? #lithuania

Barry Halpern
 

As you all know, we launched our LitvakSIG Research and Translation
Continuity Fund early in 2016, and your response has been fantastic!

This message isn't intended to ask again for your financial support
(though that is always welcome), but rather to ask for your help and
advice. Do you have any suggestions or contacts for any Jewish
foundations or donors, preferably with Litvak roots, whom we might
approach to support the Continuity Fund? Our common Lithuanian
heritage links so many of us, >from Jascha Heifetz to Al Jolson to Don
Rickles to Bob Dylan! Our work, and consequently your work, is a
vital celebration of past generations as well as an important
contribution to our future generations.

So, we're asking that if you have any ideas, or specific contacts
(particularly email addresses, mailing addresses, telephone numbers),
we would love to hear >from you! We have a long way to go to fulfill
our goals, and therefore are very willing to follow up on any leads or
suggestions you might have.

Please feel free to get in touch with either of us!

Re: "lektorizatsye" #ukraine

Igor Holyboroda
 

Your idea about elektrizatsija may have sense, at the same time:
1. To make some final conclusions it is better to know the broad
context - i.e. the whole text >from which the word in question was
taken from;
2. Every language obtains at least several hundreds of neologisms
every year reflecting newnotion and phenomena of sci, technology,
social life, etc. Some newly coined words appear to be the key terms
of the language in few years (say, computer), some of them (esp having
a very narrow sphere of usage) disappear without the traces (when
corresponding notions and phenomena disappear, change or loose their
significance).

HAYUM and STERNFELD Dorstfeld (Dortmund) #germany

Mike Redel <redel.mike@...>
 

Dear Gersig,

There is a tombstone on the cemetery Dortmund Dorstfeld which has the
following inscription:

Flora Hayum born Sternfeld 18.01.1866 - 13.10.1940 Joseph Hayum
06.11.1863 - 17.04.1951.

I know that Joseph HAYUM was born in Dortmund and survived Theresienstadt -
nothing more.

Could anyone help with more information? - maybe his parents and so on.

Regards Mike Redel - Unna - Germany redel.mike@gmail.com

The 3x5 cards (or the next size larger)

Each card with one named person the last name highlighted for sorting
it in alphabetic order

Each card with the information collected for that person:
date of BMD, burial, education, prizes, occupation, residences,
etc..and the references on where you got the information

Each card with the following four entries:
Previous name of grand parents
With name of spouse(s) and sibling(s)
Next name of offspring(s)

Other names of friends, nanies, co-workers etc and other people
important to this person's life

Obviously if you use a computer you will not have to repeat a lot of
info, but that is what you will need

All the information to be legible so that others may be able to read
it - no personal short cuts

Hi Genners,

I hope someone can help me find a way to trace my grandparents' original place
of embarkation to Glasgow. David and Lena OSTROFSKY left for NYC >from Glasgow
on the Columbia in June 1906, landed on June 6 and were detained (my grandmother
was very pregnant with my aunt, who was born in NYC about a week after they
arrived). They were released on June 8th,1906.

On my grandfather's naturalization document, his last place of residence is
given as Fastov. The family believes they were >from Odessa. Is it possible the
clerk misunderstood Glasgow for Fastov?

Is there a database that lists embarkation sites?

Thanking you in advance for any insights you may be able to share.
