Viewmate German translation requested #austria-czech

rickglaser@...
 

I have posted 5 Birth records >from various STEIN's >from Dereisen (Zderaz) CZ. I would
appreciate a transcription and translation.

I am assuming that all or most of these various STEIN's are related, since Dereisen had a
very small Jewish population.

I have posted two pages listing heirs of an estate, claims against an
estate, or monies due to the deceased. My German isn't good enough to
translate the common text. The names and currency amounts are easy, but the
meaning would be useful. Any help in translation would be appreciated. The
pages are on ViewMate at the following addresses:

JewishGen Offers Writing Short Reports in November #austria-czech

Nancy Holden
 

Writing Short Reports November 4-November 27

JewishGen will again offer a class in publishing your research. This
class concentrates on short reports. Time to get your data out of
the shoebox and arrange it in a summary report? A quick, short report
is great to send to relatives or other researchers and to remind you
just where your last project left off.

In this class we will practice writing 3 styles of reports: a list
style, a lineage style report and a longer Genealogical Summary Report.
The instructor will offer directions for using your genealogical
software "publishing features," organizing your files and folders,
citing your sources and making decisions about media snips and images.

Requirements: Students must have done enough research to be ready to
write. Students should have access to a genealogical software program.

Students must have 8-10 hours per week to study the assignments, write
their reports and interact with the instructor. To meet the needs of
international students this course is open 24/7.

Tuition is $125 for this 3 week class and includes editing suggestions
upon request. Enrollment is limited to 10 students.

Address questions to Nancy Holden
JewishGen-Education@lyris.JewishGen.org

If you have questions, I will be glad to review your project before you
enroll.

BURIED TREASURE ALERT #poland

Roger Lustig
 

For those of us researching East Prussia, there is a large trove of
records lurking in the ancestry.com databases.

Specifically, the Jewish vital-records cards for Koenigsberg (now
Kaliningrad, Russia) have been put on line and indexed, BUT...

...they're in a collection called "Germany, Lutheran Baptisms,
Marriages, and Burials, 1519-1969".

These records cover well over a century, ending in 1874.

JGS NY Meeting October 30 #general

Harriet Mayer
 

Jewish Genealogical Society (NY) Meeting
Sunday October 30 at 2 PM
at the Center for Jewish History, 15 West 16th St. New York

Our program: "Long Island's Jewish History"
Our speaker: Rhoda Salowe Miller, Ed.D, Certified Genealogist

The recent publication of "Jewish Community of Long Island," the story of
Long Island's Jewish heritage, has brought earlier histories of Long Island's
Jewry into a new perspective through a photographic journey.

Jewish life on Long Island reflects the transition >from an agricultural region
to the suburban dream. The research reflects the roles of peddlers, local
businesses, synagogues, social organizations, individuals and families. Social
history is an important part of genealogical research and much of this book was
researched and written >from a genealogical perspective. "Jewish Community of
Long Island" shows how genealogical research can augment historical data to
create a richer narrative. With JGSLI, Rhoda is co-author of this new book.

Rhoda Miller is a Past President of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island
(JGSLI), and continues her leadership as a board member. She has presented at
many conferences and other venues. Under Litvak SIG, Rhoda volunteers as
Co-coordinator of the Svencionys District Research Group, administers a
Svencionys DNA group, and is webmaster of the JewishGen Kehilalinks Orlya,
Belarus website. At Dowling College, Rhoda taught genealogy and Holocaust
courses.

A book signing will follow Rhoda's talk.

Free for members; guests welcome, $5 at the door.
