Alaska Cruise Opportunities with IAJGS Conference Announced #rabbinic

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!

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!

together the cemetery report as we did for many cemeteries in
Bessarabia/Moldova.

- Camenka Cemetery - first reading is done - need a Hebrew and Russian
translator (or 2 people) to do the second reading!

- Ungheni Cemetery - first reading is done - need a Russian translator to do
the second reading!

- Rashkov - we have only partial set of photos - 50 - need a Russian
translator to do this work, and to send our photographer to do all photos -
we need to collect about $250...

- Bessarabka - we got all photos, and now need someone to do all steps of
the project.

- Ataki - our photographer is now in Ataki and probably next week we will
have the photos - need a Project Leader to take care of all aspects of the
project!

I am looking forward to hear >from you.

All the best,

Dear researchers,

Here are a number of cemetery projects waiting for volunteers to step
forward and do the work:

PROJECT LEADER to take care of first reading, second reading, also put
together the cemetery report as we did for many cemeteries in
Bessarabia/Moldova.

- Camenka Cemetery - first reading is done - need a Hebrew and Russian
translator (or 2 people) to do the second reading!

- Ungheni Cemetery - first reading is done - need a Russian translator to do

1790-1792 census records for 200+ places in Krakow Voivodeship #galicia

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

A very important collection of Jewish census records >from 1790-1792
for about 240 towns and villages in what was then Krakow Voivodeship
(Province) is now viewable (but not searchable) online, as scans on
szukajwarchiwach.pl. The format and details vary somewhat by place,
but generally list entire households, with given names, patronymic of
head of household, relationships between members, and ages.

Genealogists able to link this information with post-surname sources
might learn the name of an ancestor born in the early 18th or late 17th
century. And the information could potentially help link families whose
most recent common ancestor lived before surname adoption. However,
for many researchers there might be a gap in the availability of later
sources making it difficult to connect to these people.

The scans are presented as small thumbnail images, medium-size
images that are sometimes legible, and full-size images that are usually
legible. To begin using the collection, view the nearly 1000
thumbnail images at:

http://www.szukajwarchiwach.pl/29/30/0/3/52/str/1/1/1000#tabSkany

To check if your town or village of interest is included, you can consult
the fifth-seventh images at the beginning, an alphabetical list of places.
(I do not know whether it is accurate.) After that, the images are generally
alphabetical by place name. So, if you are interested in Zagorze, scroll to
the bottom. Click on a thumbnail image where you think it might
approximately appear based on the alphabetization. (This step could be
improved if a linked index were created.)

The medium-size image will pop up on your screen, which might be
sufficiently large for you to read the place name, which is usually near the
top left in pencil. If you do not see a place name, click on the right or left
side of the image (an arrow icon will appear under your cursor) to go to
the next or previous image. Once you see a place name, click outside of
the image or on the "x" on the top right to close the medium-size image,
and then click on a different thumbnail image that should be closer
alphabetically to your place of interest, repeating until you find your place.

Once you have found your place, or if you cannot read a place name on a
medium-size image, you are ready to view the full-size image. In the
bottom right of the medium-size image's pop-up are two icons in white
on black circular backgrounds -- one a rectangle with marks at the
corners and the other a "z." To view the full-size image, click the
rectangle icon. Another window should pop up, probably without any
image initially. Wait, and the full-size image should appear within a
minute. The image will probably be too big to be displayed all at once, in
which case you can move your cursor over the image, click with your
mouse, and, while holding your mouse button down, drag the image
around so other parts are visible. Below the image, centered, is a
download link. (You might have to use the window's scrollbar to see the
link.)

An example of a typical full-size image is the following >from Radwanowice:

The purpose of this message is to notify you of this newly available
resource, but I regret I am not able to provide individual assistance with
look-ups for your family or town. If you have questions about the
resource, please ask on the mailing list.

These scans were provided by the National Archives in Krakow. What a
tremendous gift they have given us by putting them online.

Wooden Synagogues #galicia

Marcia Indianer Meyers <marciarthur@...>
 

Greetings,

My father was >from Chodorow, Galicia. I would like to buy the DVD
"The Lost Wooden Synagogues of Eastern Europe," which shows and talks
about the famous synagogue in Chodorow. I only see it on video but I
know it is on DVD.

Any suggestions?
