Trudy Barch asked:
"1) Sometimes the last benefit paid location was different than the last
known residence (of the deceased. How come? Why not the same location?
2) Last known residence (of the deceased) said HC What does that stand for?"

The last paid location may differ >from the last known residence if someone
was acting as conservator for the recipient. For example, my brother handled our
father's accounts after Dad hit 91, so all bills and income went to my brother's
address.

I can't answer the second question.

Ancestry.de (Germany) Offering Access Month October to Celebrate 25 years of German Unification #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

To celebrate 25 years of German reunification, Ancestry.de (German Ancestry.com) is
offering throughout the month of October free access to their databases-which
includes the worldwide databases-- 16 billion historic documents and pictures,
including 220 million German documents and images. When documents are >from another
country, for example the United States or Canada, those records are available in
their original language of English for example :" New York, Passegiertlisten,
1820-1957 (auf Englisch)".

If the records are >from Germany they are in German as are the instructions
on the website. I found using Google translate
<https://translate.google.com> https://translate.google.com a great help in
translating the instructions and the names of some of the records.


To access the site go to: <http://www.ancestry.de/cs/unityday>
http://www.ancestry.de/cs/unityday and when you put in a name and place of
the person you are researching it will take you to a window with the
results. Once you click on the results, a window opens giving you the
instructions to register with your name, and email address and if you have
an Ancestry password >from previous trials use that otherwise you will be
sent a password. You will also be asked to check the box that you understand
the terms and conditions. Once you are signed in the first page asks you
about setting up your family tree. On the right hand side about half way
down the page is a graphic with hands of two people walking in front of the
Brandenburg Gate in Berlin about the 25 year reunification celebration.
Click on "jetzt suchen" (Start now) which opens another window where you
fill in the information on the person you are searching and first name, last
name, city/state where they were born and date of birth if you have it and
click on "klostenlos suchen" (search now) and the next window will display
what records they have and the option to provide more information to enhance
the search. For those who do not speak or read German I recognize this may
take extra translation steps, but it is worth the effort to try this during
the month of October for access to Ancestry's worldwide database at no charge.

I have no affiliation with Ancestry.com or Ancestry.de and am sharing this
solely for the reader's information.

IAJGS 2016 Seattle conference update and a request #poland #warsaw

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

Plans are moving ahead as we prepare for the 36th Annual IAJGS
Conference on Jewish Genealogy, August 7-12, 2016, at the Sheraton
Downtown in Seattle.

One option we are exploring is a seven day Alaska cruise either before
or after the conference. This would not be a conference event, per se,
but it would be a great opportunity for a different type of adventure
for those who are coming to the Great Northwest next August. These
cruises leave >from the Seattle Cruise Terminal, a short cab ride from
the hotel, and go up the Inside Passage along the southeastern coast of
Alaska. Typically, they offer spectacular views of glaciers that meet
the ocean, views of the forests and wildlife of southeastern Alaska, and
all the amenities of a family oriented cruise. Prices start around $900
per person, double occupancy for an inside cabin, including cabin and
meals, and a variety of accommodations are available on board these
fully equipped cruise ships.

Stops would include possibly Ketchikan, Juneau, Glacier Bay National
Park, Skagway, and either Vancouver or Victoria on the return trip. If
we get a sufficient number of people booking together, the price will be
discounted.

We expect there will be options for those who keep kosher, either
pre-packaged kosher meals or vegetarian meals.

One cruise option we are looking at would depart Seattle either July 28
or 29th, (Thursday or Friday), returning to Seattle on August 4 or 5
(Thursday or Friday). The other option would be a cruise departing
either August 15 or 16 (Monday or Tuesday), returning August 22 or 23.

We would like some input >from those who are interested in taking one of
these cruises. Please let us know if you would be interested in a
cruise, your preference either before or after the conference, and how
many would be in your party. We also need to have an idea how many of
you would require a kosher option. These are family oriented cruises,
and we are informed that there are a lot of things to do on the boat for
all ages of children, as well as the rest of us older folks. If there
is sufficient interest expressed before October 5, we will proceed with
our plans and let you know when we have finalized arrangements. If not,
it was a great idea. The Alaskan cruises are extremely popular and
would be a great way to see a beautiful part of the country that
relatively few people get to see.

If you are interested, please respond to Chuck Weinstein directly at
chuck@iajgs2016.org, and let us know what you think. Again, this will
not be an organized conference event, but it will be a great opportunity
to turn your conference experience into a wonderful vacation to remember

15 minutes reserved for questions and answers. There is also an option,
this year, for shorter presentations of 45 or 60 minutes, including 15

Call for Proposals IAJGS 2016 Conference #ciechanow #poland

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

The International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies announces
an invitation to submit lecture, workshop, and panel proposals for the
36th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy, locally hosted
by the Jewish Genealogical Society of Washington State. The conference
will be held at the Sheraton Seattle Hotel in Seattle, Washington from
August 7 to 12, 2016.

We seek proposals relevant to the interests of all genealogists
researching Jewish ancestors. In addition to proposals for lectures,
proposals for workshops or panel discussions are also welcome. New
presentations are encouraged, as are presentations and workshops that
provide practical research methodologies that will help conference
participants in their research. Highly original topics that will attract
participants will also be given special consideration.

The major focus of the Conference will be on Jewish migration, with a
general theme of "Westward Ho." General topics for presentations will
include European Jewry, migrations to the United States, migration of
American Jewry across America, and Jews in the Western United States. A
special geographic focus will be programming based on our branches in
Australia, South America, and South Africa.

Other focus areas are technology in support of genealogical research and
ethical considerations in genealogy. A special focus at this Conference
will be the Sephardic experience in America, in all of its varied aspects.

Presentations and panel discussions will be 75 minutes, which includes
15 minutes reserved for questions and answers. There is also an option,
this year, for shorter presentations of 45 or 60 minutes, including 15
minutes for questions and answers.

All proposals must be submitted using the Conference website
(www.iajgs2016.org), under the Program tab. In addition to basic
demographic and biographic information about the speaker(s), proposals
must include the presentation title, a brief description of the
presentation and target audience level,

The deadline form submission of proposals is December 15, 2015!
Submitters of proposals will be notified by email no later than February
15, 2016 as to whether or not their proposal has been accepted. You may
contact the Program Committee at program@iajgs2016.org with any
questions or comments.

We look forward to receiving your proposals and thank you for your
interest in our Conference.

#Ciechanow #Poland IAJGS 2016 Seattle conference update and a request #ciechanow #poland

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

Plans are moving ahead as we prepare for the 36th Annual IAJGS
Conference on Jewish Genealogy, August 7-12, 2016, at the Sheraton
Downtown in Seattle.

One option we are exploring is a seven day Alaska cruise either before
or after the conference. This would not be a conference event, per se,
but it would be a great opportunity for a different type of adventure
for those who are coming to the Great Northwest next August. These
cruises leave >from the Seattle Cruise Terminal, a short cab ride from
the hotel, and go up the Inside Passage along the southeastern coast of
Alaska. Typically, they offer spectacular views of glaciers that meet
the ocean, views of the forests and wildlife of southeastern Alaska, and
all the amenities of a family oriented cruise. Prices start around $900
per person, double occupancy for an inside cabin, including cabin and
meals, and a variety of accommodations are available on board these
fully equipped cruise ships.

Stops would include possibly Ketchikan, Juneau, Glacier Bay National
Park, Skagway, and either Vancouver or Victoria on the return trip. If
we get a sufficient number of people booking together, the price will be
discounted.

We expect there will be options for those who keep kosher, either
pre-packaged kosher meals or vegetarian meals.

One cruise option we are looking at would depart Seattle either July 28
or 29th, (Thursday or Friday), returning to Seattle on August 4 or 5
(Thursday or Friday). The other option would be a cruise departing
either August 15 or 16 (Monday or Tuesday), returning August 22 or 23.

We would like some input >from those who are interested in taking one of
these cruises. Please let us know if you would be interested in a
cruise, your preference either before or after the conference, and how
many would be in your party. We also need to have an idea how many of
you would require a kosher option. These are family oriented cruises,
and we are informed that there are a lot of things to do on the boat for
all ages of children, as well as the rest of us older folks. If there
is sufficient interest expressed before October 5, we will proceed with
our plans and let you know when we have finalized arrangements. If not,
it was a great idea. The Alaskan cruises are extremely popular and
would be a great way to see a beautiful part of the country that
relatively few people get to see.

If you are interested, please respond to Chuck Weinstein directly at
chuck@iajgs2016.org, and let us know what you think. Again, this will
not be an organized conference event, but it will be a great opportunity
to turn your conference experience into a wonderful vacation to remember
and cherish for years to come.
