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

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 drawing 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 drawing; 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 drawing 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 Russell, 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!

Krakow Original yichus briefs #rabbinic

Yaron Pedhazur
 

Dear fellow researchers,

As part of my own family research, I am digging into Krakow early
families histories.

One of the main challenges is moving >from the "records period"
(early 19 century and on), to families in earlier generations, that
are only partially documented in the literature.

AND -- one phenomena strikes me. Even in the literature of the
early 20th century, there is very limited info on tracing, even the
most prominent families (e.g. HOROWITZ, LANDAU, SPIRA), to their
respective ancestries. Presumably, It should come as no surprise.
However, point to notice is that these families lived in Krakow for
generations, and were usually proud of their "yichus". So how is it
that nobody knew/knows ?

There are a few alternate explanations:

1. the families had no clue by the late-19/early 20 centuries ...

2. The families knew, but have not been asked, or have not cooperated
with the authors.

I would like to pursue the second option, hence my question:

If anyone is aware or possess original yichus breifs, tracing
krakowian family/ies to its roots, and into the 18 century -- I
would like very much to make contact and learn about it, share info
and pursue the "lead".

For an example of such family history quest, the HOROWITZ family in
Krakow, you are most welcome to visit my blog and review the following post:

Mordechai WEITZ of Kalish and his writings #rabbinic

Yaron Pedhazur
 

Dear fellow researchers,

Rabbi Mordechai WEITZ of Kalish (Kalisz) was one of the most
important genealogists before the holocaust.

However, only one of his books was published -- Ateret Paz (1937),
while other manuscripts have been presumably lost in the war.

These manuscripts are of major genealogical importance, e.g. Matteh
Horowitz (on the Horowitz family), Paz Na'eh (on Pozanan's rabbis),
Toledot Rabeinu Ba'al Tosefoth Yom Tov, another book on the
ETTINGA-LANDAU-MARGULIES families, and possibly more.

I would be interested to know if someone has information on writings
that have "survived" the war, and/or any copies made by others, of
the whole books or any parts thereof.

Searching for HOLSTEIN family records #scandinavia

Ronald Killian <ronskillian@...>
 

I have been researching my families and my wife Carol HOLSTEIN's families
most actively since the 1990s. My HOLSTEIN research has included written
and photographic family documents, taped oral histories, and a hired
researcher in Warsaw, Poland. We have managed to identify 3 and possibly
4 branches of the family that have immigrated >from Warsaw to the United
States, primarily in the 1880s-1890s, with many settling in Syracuse, New
York and in Connecticut. Family stories tell of a HOLSTEIN (presumably a
variant of this spelling) moving to Warsaw >from Schleswig-Holstein after
being hired to work on City of Warsaw parks, possibly in landscaping or
landscape design. I just joined the Scandanavia SIG to try finding
evidence of the family and its history in Schleswig-Holstein.

We have managed to work through some Warsaw vital records back to
Feywel/Faiwel HOLSTEIN and wife Ruchla (Rachel) [unknown maiden name].
They are identified in the 1833 Warsaw marriage civil record of one of
their sons, Samuel Joseph HOLSTEIN. An older son, Abraham Faywlowicz
HOLSTEIN (Carol's g-g-g-grandfather), was born 1799-1800 in Warsaw, and
married Chana Abrahamov BALOW, born 1802-03.

One scenario we are exploring is that Feywel and Ruchla moved to Warsaw in
the late 1790s for employment purposes and then gave birth to their first
son Abraham in 1799-1800. Another scenario is that Feywel's parents were
the first HOLSTEINs to move to Warsaw sometime earlier in the 1700s. I
would appreciate any assistance or recommendations on how I can research
this family in Schleswig-Holstein.

entries, and those who register during the month of April will get one
entry. Prizes for the drawing 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 Russell, 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!

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

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 drawing 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 drawing; 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 drawing will be announced shortly.
