IAJGS 2016 Seattle conference update and a request #latinamerica

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.

Kishinev to Canada - more complicated #bessarabia

Merle Kastner <merlek@...>
 

My g-g-grandfather brought his Kushner/Kussner family >from
Bendery and Kishinev to Philadelphia in 1890.
My g-grandparents married there in 1892.
In 1909, the entire family and a portion of their extended
family (Miller) came to live in Montreal, as there was a city-wide
strike in Philadelphia, which greatly affected their incomes.

Many immigrants to Canada arrived in US ports, making
their way across the US-Canada border. And many
of those who arrived in Canada, eventually ended up
in the US.

However, other branches of my own family and other families
arrived at similar times (and later, too) by landing in
Sydney, Nova Scotia, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Saint John,
New Brunswick, Quebec City, Quebec, and even in
Montreal (weather permitting).

(US) Pew Center Study On Immigration Since 50 Years After Landmark Legislation #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Virtually all of us in the United States are descendants of
immigrants - predominately >from Europe. Immigration is one aspect of
genealogy that encourages us to study the who, where, what and why about our
ancestors. It is 50 years since the Immigration and Nationality Act was
passed by Congress in 1965. The Act ended the system of country quotas and
changed the priorities on bringing in family members of American citizens
and others living in the United States and people with desirable work
skills. Today, there are 45 million immigrants living in the US versus just
under 10 million in 1965. In 1965 most immigrants came >from Europe, that
has changed, where half of all immigrants now come >from Latin American and
Mexico sending about 16 percent over the past 5 decades. Today, European
immigrants make up about 10 percent of new foreign-born residents. However,
since 2011 people >from Asia, predominately India and China, are surpassing
the number of Latin American immigrants. To read the Pew Research Center

ViewMate: Interpretation of Holocaust Transport #general

Genealogy BLW
 

Dear Genners,

Some of you may remember that I have been seeking the fate of a family
presumed to have been on one of the ships turned away >from Cuba in
1938-39. Of those ships, three were forced to return to Europe with all
but a few of their passengers.

My cousins thought their grandmother, aunt, and uncle were on the S.S.
St. Louis which was easy to disprove. I then found a passenger manifest
for her sister ship, the S.S. Orinoco. My relatives were not on that
ship either. The third ship was smaller and embarked >from France, the
S.S Flandres. I found several tantalizing mentions about the ship and
her passengers, but little solid information.

Since the Flandres' passengers disembarked in St. Nazaire and were
supposedly interned in France, I decided to check French sources,
specifically the French Memorial de la Shoah website.

I found the family members on my first search, in a deportation list to
Auschwitz, with just enough information to start back on the trail which
I assume ended not long after.

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=42428

This is the first time I've looked at such a list that has family
members' names on it so I'm a bit rattled.

I believe they were at the Rivesaltes Camp. Can anyone confirm that? I
would like to know everything that this paper says, and whatever it
doesn't say. What assumptions can be made, given the train station >from
which they started their journey and their final destination at
Auschwitz? Does the date of transport matter in terms of their possible
survival, if only for a short time?

The surname of interest is GORECKI / GORECKA. The mother and two
children, all >from Opole Lubelskie, are in the middle of the page.

Thank you very much for your help and insights!
