Alaska Cruise Opportunities with IAJGS Conference Announced #austria-czech

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

Please read the entire message before responding. If you wish to book one
of our cruises, the booking information and additional information on the
cruises is on the conference blog at http://www.iajgs2016.org/blog/ . Due
to limited availability, our travel agent will have to take deposits on a
first-come first-served basis. First of all, we want to thank all of you
who indicated to us that you were interested in taking an Alaska cruise
either before or after the Conference in Seattle, next summer. When we sent
out the message, we hoped we might get 20 or 25 responses, enough to put
together a group of about 40-50. We received over 60 responses, indicating
an interest >from a total of over 130 people, including spouses and families
(and, in at least one case, neighbors) Due to the timing of cruises
available, many of the cruises we looked at were already close to or
completely sold out. We determined that by booking through Sharon Furlong,
a travel agent who is very experienced with Alaska cruises, we could offer
each cruiser a personalized experience based on their interests. There is
no additional charge for this service, and she will make you aware of
discounts available, which may include retired military, AARP, former
cruisers, etc. In addition, depending on the size of each group, the cruise
lines involved will make a contribution to the Conference as a sponsor.
Instructions for booking follow the descriptions of the cruises. All
cruises depart >from the Seattle Ship Terminal Pier 91, which is a convenient
10 minute cab ride >from the Conference hotel. As noted, some of these
cruises have specials for people who book quickly.

In order to make the cruises available to the most people possible, we have
decided to offer three choices:

Pre-Conference Cruise

A Pre-Conference Cruise departs Seattle, Friday afternoon, July 29, 2016 at
5:00 PM, returning to Seattle on Friday morning, August 5, 2016 at 8 AM
onboard the Celebrity Solstice.

Two Post-Conference Cruise Choices

We have elected to offer two post-conference cruises, both departing Seattle
on Sunday, August 14 at 4 in the afternoon and returning Sunday, August 21
in the morning. Boarding begins at 1:00 PM and you must be aboard by 3:30
PM. Both ships appeal to slightly different clientele, so you may wish to
consider this.

The Ruby Princess offers a variety of opportunities for a family oriented
cruiser

The Holland America Lines' MS Amsterdam departs Seattle and offers a more
adult-oriented cruise.

IMMERSE YOURSELF IN THE BEAUTY AND GRANDEUR OF ALASKA. >from THE EPIC
LANDSCAPES AND THE INCREDIBLE WILDLIFE TO THE HISTORIC AND COLORFUL CULTURE,
THE GREAT LAND IS A DESTINATION THAT WILL INSPIRE, AWE, AND LEAVE YOU WITH
MEMORIES YOU WILL NEVER FORGET.

Booking Your Cruise

We have made exclusive arrangements with Sharon Furlong , a Travel Agent who
has over 30 years of experience with Sharon's Travelers, an affiliate of
Incentive Connection Travel, to book cruises on behalf of the Conference
attendees. She has already reserved a limited number of cabins for each
cruise for conference attendees and their families and friends. You may
contact Sharon Furlong by Email at sharonstravelers@hotmail.com, mentioning
IAJGS Cruise in the subject line, or contact Sharon directly at (631)
357-7947 for voice or for text messages. Please do not call her between the
hours of 6 PM to 9 AM, Eastern Time (GMT-4), as this is her cell number.
Sharon is the owner and she will personally handle your booking. Please do
not contact the Conference chairs or IAJGS, as Sharon has all the
information available on these cruises. Sharon and the cruise lines will be
donating a portion of all fees for the cruises to help underwrite the
conference.

Additional information, including the itineraries of all three cruises is
now on the conference blog at http://www.iajgs2016.org/blog/. When these
cruises are sold out, we will not be able to accommodate anyone else, so do
not delay!

Thank you for your interest. We look forward to seeing you in Seattle and
enjoy a lovely cruise! Bon voyage!

Viewmate help requested German #austria-czech

bjansen201@...
 

I have uploaded two pages of a birth record for Markus SOMMER to
Viewmate--42651 and 42652.

What is in columns 4,6,7,and 8 of 42651? I suspect column four is the
circumcision record.

42652 column one I believe says that Markus is the illegitimate son of Sara
Sommer, daughter of Moses but there is something else there. The third
column I believe are witnesses and I need help on the fourth column.

If I need to make a larger image for translation, please let me know.
Thanks in advance.

ELSE GRUN nee LINDNER #austria-czech

Roy Star
 

It has been a while since I have asked this question.
I am still seeking answers if anyone can help me.
Have you come across the name Else GRUN nee LINDNER. (1888-1943) ?

She married a Mr GRUN.
I don't know where she originally came >from (possibly Tarnopol area, Galicia), but lived in VIENNA around late 1930-1940.
Her address was :
15/15 Liechtenstein Str., Vienna 9. With or without her husband!
She was well known to my late father when she was living in North London
towards the end of her life.
I cannot find any immigration records, or Census records.
I found her grave in North London which has no Hebrew, and does not
show her fathers name.
It shows her married name GRUN and her maiden name LINDNER.
Her UK death certificate does not give her husbands first name.
Only her addresses in London and Vienna.
My paternal great-grandmother was Ruchel GRUN. It could be that Else was
married to one of her brothers!
I cannot trace her parents either, so she 'stands alone' just outside
my family tree!

Please send any information you might have to : roystar20@gmail.com

USSR 1926 Census #belarus

Orit Lavi
 

Dear friends

In 1926 the USSR conducted a general census. Among others, it included
personal forms, and family forms.
I have seen many publications relating to statistical findings of this
census. And I wonder: were the family forms and personal forms also
kept? And if so, where they are likely to be found?

Many thanks,

Orit Lavi

JGS of Montreal - Quebec Notary Records - Tuesday, November 03, 2015 #general

Merle Kastner <merlek@...>
 

The JGS of Montreal, in association with the
Jewish Public Library, is pleased to announce
as our guest speaker: Sharon Callaghan,
who will talk to us on "The What, Where and
How of a Genealogical Treasure Trove"

This lecture addresses Quebec's unique notary
system, which has existed since the beginning of
New France. The speaker will explain why these
records can be so valuable in family history research,
notaries having played a comprehensive role in
ancestors' day-to-day lives.

Also covered will be various methods of accessing
their records, which can potentially open a gateway
to an abundance of genealogical data.

The meeting will be held on
Tuesday, November 03, 2015 at 7:30 pm
Gelber Conference Centre
5151 Cote Ste-Catherine/1 Carré Cummings

For all information on our upcoming meetings &
Sunday Morning Family Tree Workshops -

Re: Austrian data bank #general

Joachim Mugdan
 

Barbara Mannlein asked about the Austrian database www.genteam.at (the URL
given by the moderator was slightly misspelled).

I looked to verify a death.

Detail View
No. 336313
Year 1935
Numerative 815 [omitted in the message]
Code 3
Volume Wien
...

As one can see in the search results, this comes >from the "Index of Jewish
records". The information was taken >from an entry in the Vienna (Wien) death
register (code 3) for 1935, entry number ("Numerative") 815.

The second result is >from the database "Jewish Cemeteries":

Detail View
No. 38416
...
Date of Birth 47
Date of Death 1935.3.31
Place of Death 1180, Isr. Sp
...
Cemetery ZF Tor 4
...

It gives the date of death in the format YEAR.MONTH.DAY, the age (indexed as
"date of birth"), the place of death (where 1180 is the post code of
district Waehring and "Isr. Sp." means Jewish hospital), and the exact
location of the grave: Vienna Central Cemetery ("ZF"), Gate 4 (Tor 4, new
Jewish section), etc.

In the case of the BMD records of the Jewish Community of Vienna, GenTeam
provides just an index with scant information, but many of the actual
records are available online at
https://familysearch.org/search/collection/2028320. After selecting "Browse
through ... images", you can choose between record books for a single
district (Bezirk), record books for all of Vienna (Wien, alle Bezirke), the
cemetery (Zentralfriedhof), etc. Here's a selection of what they have:

1. Bezirk (inner city): marriages (Trauungsbuecher) 1825-1909
2. Bezirk (Leopoldstadt, heavily Jewish): marriages 1858-1907 (without
1872-78)
Wien (alle Bezirke): births (Geburtsbuecher) 1784-1849, 1904-11; marriages
1785-1848, 1892-1903; deaths (Sterbebuecher) 1784-1848, 1866-74, 1883-96
Zentralfriedhof: burials (Graeberprotokolle) 1879-1908

Once you've found the right book, you can browse through it and locate the
desired entry by trial and error - it is not possible to go directly to a
given entry number or date, and a name search on
https://familysearch.org/search won't help either.

If a record has been indexed by GenTeam but is not available on the
FamilySearch website (as in Barbara's case), you can turn to the records
office (Matrikenamt) of the Jewish Community of Vienna. If you go there in
person, you can browse the digitized images for all years (not just those on
FamilySearch) on their computer, but they also answer enquiries by e-mail -
see http://www.ikg-wien.at/?page_id=799&lang=en for further information. BMD
records contain many details that do not appear in the GenTeam index so that
it is worthwhile to order a copy. The index to the cemetery records does not
seem to omit anything of interest; the JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial
Registry (JOWBR) and the database of the Jewish Community of Vienna
(http://friedhof.ikg-wien.at/search.asp?lang=en) won't tell you more.
Photographs of some gravestones (less than 5 percent so far) can be found at
http://www.grave-pictures.at/gallery/index.php. If you want to visit the
Jewish cemeteries in Vienna, http://www.ikg-wien.at/?page_id=1150&lang=en
gives some practical information.

Hope this helps,

Entrance tourism to Israel during the British Mandate #general

The Israel Genealogy Research Association is working closely with the
Central Zionist Archives to build databases built on their files. As
of yet, we have not seen lists of tourists entering Palestine. Taking
a wild guest, you should try writing to the Israel State Archives, who
have most of the files >from the British Mandate Government. You can
try our collection, your grandfather may appear in one of the many
other databases we have built, such as the voters' lists, both
national and local.

LABOWITCH - Dorohoi, Romania #general

Ilan Leibowitz
 

Dear Genners,

Seeking information on descendants of my great-grandfather's brother
Aizic Isaac/Yitzhak LABOWITCH.

My great-grandfather Wolf LABOWITCH >from Dorohoi son of Reuven Leib, son
of Itzic was born in 1853 - mother's name Mariem - married in 1872
Rifka (Rebecca) Crashmariu.

They had several children and moved to London in the late 1800s where
they had more children, - have a full family tree.

Wolf is known to have had at least one brother called Aizic
(I am confident there were other siblings) whose wife was Rachel and
children Chaia and Nechama (there may have had more) It appears they did not
go to the UK nor remain in Dorohoi after 1900.

If your LABOWITCH (variant spellings) family tree has the above
mentioned persons please contact me privately.

Thank you for your time.

(Australia) Sydney Morning Herald Indexes Death Notices From 1831-2015 #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Sydney Morning Herald has completed indexing every death notice since
1831-2015 (I tried several searches and found examples in 2015. This
represents 1,861,095 notices. It took The Sydney Morning Herald 17 years
doing 2,000 death notices per week. In addition over 200,000 funeral notices
are included-some in addition to a death notice, many as a substitute for a
death notice.

The indexes are included in the Ryerson Index which may be accessed at :
http://www.ryersonindex.org/

On the right side is a tab that says "Search Ryerson". When this new window
opens, click on the drop down box for newspapers and click on Sydney
Morning Herald and at least fill in the surname you are searching. The
search results will list the type of notice-i.e. death, with the person's
given and surnames, date of occurrence notice, age of the person, other
details, publication and published date.

Ryerson is a free service.

Thank you to Helen Gardner for informing us of this helpful tool for those
researching Australian family.

Re: Zelik TANKHUM #general

One place to look for given names is the Jewishgen given names database,
<http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/GivenNames>. Also, keep in mind
that Zelik/Zelig was sometimes associated with Asher and Yehoshua.

The Jewishgen family finder, <http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/>, is the
best place to find others searching the same surname or town.
And be sure to register your names and places, so others can find you as well.

given and surnames, date of occurrence notice, age of the person, other
details, publication and published date.

Ryerson is a free service.

Thank you to Helen Gardner for informing us of this helpful tool for those
researching Australian family.

One place to look for given names is the Jewishgen given names database,
<http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/GivenNames>. Also, keep in mind
that Zelik/Zelig was sometimes associated with Asher and Yehoshua.

The Jewishgen family finder, <http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/>, is the
best place to find others searching the same surname or town.
And be sure to register your names and places, so others can find you as well.
