Program: ">from the Steppes to the Pampas: The Migration of Eastern
European Jews to South America."

Speaker: Victor Armony

Victor Armony will speak about Jewish immigration to South America and, in particular, to Argentina, home of the

Eastern European Jews in Buenos Aires at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century, the remarkable
story of the Jewish "cowboys" in the rural colonies of the Pampas, the different patterns of Jewish migration in
the surrounding Spanish-language countries (Chile, Bolivia, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay), and efforts to uncover and
preserve records >from Jewish cemeteries all over that region during the 1990s and early 2000s.

In addition, he will talk about available resources and databases in South America, and share some memories and experiences in his own
quest to connect his Jewish-Polish ancestry, his personal Hispanic cultural background, and his children's
French Canadian identity.

A sociology professor at the University of Quebec in Montreal, Dr. Armony was born in Argentina. He has been
researching his family roots since he was a teenager. His late father, Paul Armony, was the founding president
of Argentina's Jewish Genealogical Association.

No charge for members; guests are welcome - $5 at the door.

Placing a Sobibor Memorial Stone #general

P. S. Wyant
 

Hello,

Among other Vernichtungslagern, I was at Sobibor two years ago and saw the
row of stones along each side of the "Himmelstrasse" leading to the site of
the gas chambers, each placed in memoriam by a relative of someone murdered
at that camp. Each stone had an inscription of the names and dates of those
being remembered. Many of these names were >from the Netherlands.

I wish to do the same. Has anyone had experience in placing a memorial stone
at Sobibor and could advise on the process that was followed?

Please reply privately.

Thank you.

Advice on a program that can do a specific task #general

Moishe Miller
 

Dear Group,

I am still running (and love) my FTM version 10. It does everything
I need, until today.

I am working on a biblical tree and am trying to create and print a
small piece of it. Can anyone recommend an easy program that will
do the following:

print an NGS Quarterly Report with a variety of Alternate names
(that is what FTM calls it when you have more than one name) and
nicknames - including both English and Hebrew characters

Thanks,

Moishe Miller

MODERATOR: Please respond to Moishe privately.
