Translation needed on ViewMate - German #france

yael polat
 

Shalom to all Genners,

I've posted a vital record in German, for which I need a translation.
Actually, I don't need a full translation, Google is very helpful in
it. But I do need a transliteration to printed German. This is a vital
record >from Dresden, 1902, and the handwriting is so calligraphied and
gothic, that I cannot read it. I posted one page although I got some
ten pages. But I guess, I hope, that if you help me with one page,
I"ll manage easier with the other pages.

It is on ViewMate at the following address ...

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.
Thank you very much,

Alaska Cruise Opportunities with IAJGS Conference Announced #romania

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!

Thanks Re: Where is Petrisorul #general

Werner Hirsch
 

Dear Genners,

My sincere thanks to all those who responded to my question about
Petrisorul, all of your comments were very helpful.

Some referred me to the JewishGen Gazetteer (which of course I
should have consulted first), which said the Petrisorul is now
Lunca Petrisorului. Other Internet sources equated Petrisorul
with present day Petrisoru. Actually, these two villages are less
than two miles apart.

Thanks again to you all.

Hi Fay, hi everybody,

I want to mention a few things about transportation in Bessarabia/Moldova.
According to history of Moldova, first trains appear in Kishinev in 1871, it was a line
Tiraspol - Kishinev. 4 years later the line was expanded to Ungheni, which is on the border
with Romania. Ungheni was connected via the bridge on Prut river to Yassy, and I believe at
that time Yassy was already connected via Railroads to the rest of Europe.

The other way go to European ports is by water, especially if you live in Kiliya, which was not
far >from Odessa, and >from Odessa you could go to any ports in Europe.

How a particular family went to ports depended on their wealth... >from very luxury voyages
to the cheapest.

You remember that Jews in Russian Empire were put in one of 3 Estates / Classes: Merchants
(the highest class of factory owners, big business owners, etc.), Farmers and Middle Class
(majority of Jews were part of it). It included small shops owners, small merchants, peddlers, etc.

Of course two families living in a same small town like Kiliya >from different Estates, used
different transportation to the ports in Europe.

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

INTRO - Researching DANIEL and the RAPPAPORT Family from Katowice / Berlin #germany

Miriam Rotman
 

Hello GerSig,

I just joined the group.  I have been doing genealogy research for about 2
years.  I consider myself to be a beginner in doing German Jewish Genealogy
research. I consider myself advanced in using a computer. My experience in
using the Internet is extensive.. My JGFF Researcher ID number is 508600.
I currently live in northern CA but was born and grew up in Israel.
My native languages are Hebrew and English.

I have identified the names and birth and death dates of my maternal and
paternal grandparents, and of some of my great grandparents and great great
grandparents. I have been unable to identify most of the members of the
family of my g.great grandmother.

I am doing this research in part because most of my family was lost
in the holocaust and I feel that by connecting them to my family
tree they will not be forgotten!

My primary research goals now are to find out:

RAPPAPORT family - >from Gliwice/ Katowice, Poland and then Berlin - seeking
information about all siblings of Charlotte RAPPAPORT (born  SCHWEITZER in
1834  >from Schwientochlowitz), and her daughter Gertrude DANIEL nee ?
RAPPAPORT born 1872 . There were 12 siblings and I have not been able to
identify them and their families.
The RAPPAPORT family was originally >from Gleiwitz, Poland, in 1812. It seems
that most members of the family moved to Berlin by 1880-1890.

DANIEL family - >from Culm Prussia and Berlin. Many members of the DANIEL
family emigrated to Philadelphia. My g.granfather Leo was one of 10 siblings
from the third wife of Meyer DANIEL. There were another 3 step-siblings from
the first wife who all left for the US.

BRAZINSKI >from Kremenchuk, Ukraine and later Glasgow, Scotland or USA.
Abraham Brazinski left Ukraine for USA in 1892 to meet with his sibling who
left a couple of years before him and was residing in the US. Abraham landed
in Scotland and never made it?. Would like to find out about the sibling ?
cannot find any mention of the BRAZINSKI name in later US documents.

Kronisch ? >from Zborov and then Berlin.

I have uploaded my family tree to JewGen ? you are invited to take a look.
Thank you all for this community,

Warsaw 1808-1825 birth, marriage, death records online #general

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

Warsaw civil (Jewish and non-Jewish) birth, marriage, and death
records for 1808-1825 are viewable (not searchable) online as
thousands of scans on szukajwarchiwach.pl. The records are organized
by district (cyrkul). You might be able to learn the district where
your relatives lived >from other sources, such as later vital records
searchable at JRI-Poland or the homeowners' lists searchable in
JewishGen's All Poland Database or at genealogyindexer.org.

Links to the images begin at:

District I: http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/72/183/0/str/1/100?ps=True#tabJednostki

District II: http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/72/184/0/str/1/100?ps=True#tabJednostki

District III: http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/72/185/0/str/1/100?ps=True#tabJednostki

District IV: http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/72/186/0/str/1/100?ps=True#tabJednostki

District V: http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/72/187/0/str/1/100?ps=True#tabJednostki

District VI: http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/72/188/0/str/1/100?ps=True#tabJednostki

District VII: http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/72/189/0/str/1/100?ps=True#tabJednostki

District VIII: http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/72/190/0/str/1/100?ps=True#tabJednostki

After selecting one of the above, click on a link of interest for
which the number in the rightmost column is not 0 (which indicates
there are no scans for that group of records). Then click the
"Digital copies" or "Skany" tab at the top to see thumbnail images.
At this point, you can browse through all the images or try to find
names of interest in the handwritten indices that are usually on the
last few images. Either way, when you find a thumbnail that you want
to enlarge, click the thumbnail to see a medium-size version. While
viewing a medium-size image, you can click on the right or left side
of the image (an arrow icon will appear under your cursor) to display
the next or previous medium-size image. Click the rectangle icon in
the bottom right of a medium-size image to see the full-size version
(which might not fit entirely on your screen, so click and drag the
full-size images with your mouse to reveal off-screen sections).
While viewing a full-size image, you can click the links just above
the image, on the right or left, to display the next or previous
full-size image.

Here is an example of a full-size image containing a Jewish record:

Thanks very much to the State Archives in Warsaw for making these
