To all,

Great suggestion >from Miriam, and thanks to her. (Gravez:
https://gravez.me/en/)

For those who would need help in entering the Hebrew spelling of a
name, I suggest one of Stephen Morse's great applications. This
converts English words, names, etc., into Hebrew. Even if your name
is Ashkenazic, because these burials are in Israel, Sephardic would
probably be a better choice in any case.

Offering New York Cemetery Photo - Hebron, Carmel, Montefiore, etc. #general

A. E. Jordan
 

I am going to try to visit some of the cemeteries to do photos. If anyone is
looking for photos at the cemeteries feel free to contact me.

I appreciate if you identify the graves based on the cemetery's databases,
especially if it is a common name.

I am fairly adept at locating the graves but it helps if you can give me
details and if you can please tell me if it is a child's grave. A lot of the
stones do not survive for children so it helps to know if that is what I am
looking for.

I visit cemeteries including

Mt Hebron
Mt Zion
Mt Judah
My Carmel
Mt Lebanon
Montefiore
New Montefiore

I will do others but they are more difficult because not all of them have
databases.

I appreciate a few dollars in return to help with the expense of offering this
for everyone.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

JGS Oregon meeting - Sunday October 13, 2019 #general

Linda Kelley
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Oregon announces a program on
Researching Jewish Families. Many families had no surnames for many
years. Names were changed when they came to America, and endogamy,
the practice of marriage among "tribal" members, made figuring out
family connections difficult. Janice Sellers, a nationally-known
professional genealogist, will speak to these issues and others, to
help you research your family and build your tree. JGSO programs are
open to the general public. Help Desk will be available >from 10:00 to
10:30.

DATE: Sunday October 13, 2019
WHEN: 10:30 AM
WHERE: Congregation Neveh Shalom

Latvia was part of Russia until about 100 years ago. My guess would
be that most Jews in what is now Latvia were Ashkenazi.

Origin of Latvian Jews #sephardic

Jeff Canin <jeffcanin07@...>
 

Dear Sephardic Group,

I'm trying to determine if my family in Latvia could have originally
come >from Spain or Portugal after the Jewish populations there were
expelled in the 1500s. My grandfather, Joseph Chanin (Hebrew spelling
would be chet nun yud nun) was born in Varaklani around 1872. The
English spelling for his name could be Hanin, Kanin, Khanin or Canin.
Joe always said he was Sephardic and the family originally came >from
Portugal, but I can't find any evidence that Jews >from Portugal made
it to Latvia. His father was Mendel Chanin and grandfather, born
around 1828 was Shmul Ber (Samuel) Chanin.

Are the Latvian Jews generally considered to be Sephardic?

Thank you very much in advance for any help you can give me.

Warm regards,

Jeff Canin
