Re: Two Children, Same Name - also Sara KAHN from Buttenhausen #germany

David Bernheim
 

A similar question about my family >from Buttenhausen. Wuerttemberg has
been puzzling me, so D. Sage's question of 26 Jan comes at a good time:

Why would the two girls have been given the same names, separated
by such slight spelling and pronunciation differences? Is that a custom
twins (in case they were twins)? Any other explanation?
Gerstle KAHN (1754-1848) and Ehster/Ester KAHN (1768-1834) had 8 children,
born apparently in Buttenhausen..

- 5th child, daughter Sara/Sarah (1803-1881) married Maier BERNHEIMER
and moved to Ulm. Their son Lehmann dedicated the Bernheimersche
Realschule in Buttenhausen to them.
- 8th child, daughter Saerchen/Sara (1807-1884) married Salomon LANDAUER.
They are my ancestors. As Saerchen is the younger I can understand her
being called "little Sarah", but would have expected "big Sarah" to be
a cousin or other relative.

Two sources for the above information largely match: a tree - date
unknown - passed down through my family, and Geni. These do not
include exactly the same information. I would like to get copies
of the original registers - how could I do this?

In conclusion, the two daughters Sara and Saerchen seem to have -
in some places - the same name. Why might this be?

Jaroslaw Marriages & Deaths up to 1934 now online on JRI-Poland #general

David Fielker <fielker@...>
 

Dear Friends:
I am delighted to announce that extracts of Jaroslaw Marriage and Death
records up to 1934 are now searchable online in the Jewish Records
Indexing Poland database at www.jri-poland.org

Jaroslaw researchers will be aware that until now, only surviving Births,
Marriages and Deaths >from 1877 to 1908 were available for searching. However, on
March 1, 2015, Polish laws protecting Personal Data were amended to allow full
access to Marriage and Death records more than 80-years old. Because of the past
generosity of researchers with an interest in Jaroslaw, JRI-Poland was able to
move quickly to include the additional years of Marriage and Death records.

If you have questions regarding Jaroslaw data or nearby towns of Radymno and
Pruchnik for which I am also Town Leader, please contact me for more information.

Trying to Decipher a Town from a ship manifest #general

Eric Ellman <eellman@...>
 

Friends:

Thank you to those that helped me earlier this week trying to locate what may have
been a town in Ukraine.

I seek assistance once again. I am trying to decipher a town on a manifest. The
person of interest is Chann Baer Presser on the S.S. Haverford, arriving in New
York on Dec. 27, 1901 >from Antwerp. The manifest suggests Chann was >from the town
of Rudzanso, but it is hard to decipher. It appears his nationality is Galician.
I am looking at Ellis Island image no. 114, manifest stamp possible page 170. In
the 1905 NYS census he is listed as >from Austria.

Seek family stories for new Byerazino KehilaLink #general

Carola Murray-Seegert
 

I am creating a new KehilaLink for Byerazino (Igumen District before
WWI). In Yiddish, the name was Berezin. This was a market town and port
on the River Berezina, downstream >from Borisov, located about halfway
between Minsk and Mogilev. Jewish woodsmen logged the surrounding
forests and shipped timber, turpentine and tar >from Byerazino to distant
markets.The KehilaLink will also include information on the tiny shtetl
of Pahost, 6 miles to the East, since according to my own research, the
two communities were closely linked.

If you have family memories of Byerazino (or Pahost) or if you have photos to
share, I would be very pleased to give them a proper place on the site. I'm
especially eager to spotlight the involvement of the Jewish community in forestry
work - do you have any lumberjacks in your family?

I am also collecting stories about interactions with the house of Potocki (a Polish
noble family that owned the land around Byerazino and had a manor house in the
town). I already have accounts >from two families who leased woodland resources from
Count Potocki (and one that successfully sued the Count for breach of promise) but
I am interested in learning more.

All help warmly appreciated!

New Project to Map German Jewish Soldier Graves #general

E Feinstein
 

The JOWBR of JewishGen has embarked on a new project to comprehensively document
the final resting places of German Jewish soldiers >from the Great War of 1914-1918.
We are using the list of the Reichsbund discher Frontsoldaten as the basis of our
research. This has been combined with different burial lists >from the volksbund
(the German War Graves Commission) as well as a variety of other resources
including photographs in actual cemeteries and names on WWI town memorials.

Up to now we have mapped the graves of approximately 4000 of the 12,000 Jews who
died during WWI. Now we wanted to reach out to all to see who has additional
information on specific ancestors or relatives.
Please contact me here.
All the best

I have come across a May 18, 1945 list of 800 Czechoslovakian Jewish survivors at
Mauthausen. This list was presented to the Holocaust Museum in 1988, and before
doing anything with it, i.e. preparing a database, I want to make sure that it has
not previously been processed. If you have seen this list elsewhere please advise.

ordering LDS microfilms in Israel #general

Hello to all
In the past it was possible to order lots of LDS microfilms of the Beit Hatfutsot
Museum in Tel Aviv. Now they have stopped this service. Does anyone know why? And
what is the easiest way to obtain copies of microfilm now?

I wrote them but got another explanation, only that the service has
been stopped and should contact myself with archives in Poland.

2016 Conference Registration in Full Swing and Filled with Exciting Opportunities #latinamerica

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

If you have not already done so, early registration is now open through
April 30, on the Conference website, www.iajgs2016.org . Early
registration offers a $55 discount on the Conference. You may now
register for the Conference and reserve your hotel room upon finishing
Conference registration. Rooms at the Seattle Downtown Sheraton are
available at the Conference rate of $219 per night, plus tax, but only
through the Conference Registration page. Room reservations made
through other means will be at a substantially higher rate.

We hope to add SIG lunches, the Gala Banquet, and side tours to the
registration process in the next couple of weeks. You will have the
ability to go back in and add additional items at any time between now
and two weeks before the Conference, depending upon availability.

Registering early has a special perk -- a raffle will be held in early
May, after the closure of early registration. If you register in the
month of January, you will have 4 entries in the raffle; entering in
February will get you three entries. March registrants will receive two
entries, and those who register during the month of April will get one
entry. Prizes for the raffle will be announced shortly.

Preparations are ongoing for the Conference and we can promise you an
exciting experience. >from our Keynote Speaker, Dr. Devin Naar, through
our Banquet Speaker, "Legal Genealogist" Judy Russel, some of the best
and brightest in the genealogy and Jewish genealogy fields are expected
to present on a variety of topics. The Conference theme is "The
Wandering Jew" and main tracks include The Sephardic Experience in the
United States, European Migrations, South American, Australian and South
African Branches, Westward Ho! Jews in the Western US, and Coming Home
to Israel.

A special and separate session will be held on Sunday morning, August 7.
This is designed for Jewish Educators and Educators >from all over the
world are invited to hear presentations revolving around teaching Jewish
genealogy to the youth of the world. Registration for these sessions is
also found on the Registration page, and registration includes a kosher
breakfast and lunch. If you are registering for both this session and
the Conference, a special rate is now available.

A number of presentations will be live streamed for those who either
can't attend, or have a tough time choosing between sessions they wish
to attend. You can get a discounted rate by registering now for LIVE!
on the Conference registration page, whether or not you are able to
attend. These presentations will be archived for at least three months
after the Conference. In addition, an early advance price for DVDs of
the audio and presentation slides of many of the presentations can also
be found there.

Finally, we still have a few cabins left for the Alaska cruises before
and after the Conference. For instructions on booking a cabin for
cruises to beautiful Alaska, see the blog on our website.
Unfortunately, due to Dept. of Homeland Security regulations, you can
only book cabins through our Travel Agent if you are a US citizen or
legal resident. All others can book directly with the cruise lines, but
you will not get a lower price, nor will they provide the help our
Travel Agent is offering to help you determine which side trips to take.
Each cruise has a number of options.

Your Co-chairs are excited about making this both an educational and fun
Conference. We are looking forward to seeing you August 7-12 in Seattle!
