Curious about warp-speed research, vanished worlds, and genealogical
tourism? Then join us at the next meeting of the Jewish Genealogical
Society of Los Angeles:

"Genealogical Adventures in Shtetland"

Monday, February 11, 2013 - 7:30 PM
Skirball Cultural Center
2701 N. Sepulveda Boulevard
Los Angeles 90049

Part 1: "To Heller and Back: >from home office to Grandpa's home in
five crazy weeks"

Lauren Farasati had never dabbled in genealogy until last August when
she cleaned a closet and found a treasure. That treasure sparked her
curiosity and launched her into a whirlwind of research, new friends,
new family and the trip beyond her wildest expectations. Within five
weeks of discovering that treasure and the clues it contained, she was
standing in front of her grandfather's ancestral home in the town of
Bukaczowce, Ukraine, formerly Galicia. In her presentation, she'll
share her approach to warp-speed family research, planning a genealogy
trip and enjoying the adventure of a lifetime.

Part 2: "The Originals: A Story of Origins"

Author Randall Babtkis began writing a novel about his father, a Los
Angeles automobile mechanic said to be in possession of an "original"
mind. When an excerpt >from this work won a small prize, he seized the
moment and found himself boarding an airplane after 10 years of
"flight abstinence." He traveled to shtetl villages his ancestors fled
along the endless belt of grassland, which today makes up Ukraine. At
least two strands of his "tribe" vacated that familial realm - what
was then known as Galicia - at the end of the 19th century. One strand
would emerge as Hollywood moguls, the other, esoterics, authentic
Landsmanshaftn of a world gone by.

Plus: Sneak Preview: "The USHMM & the ITS Database at the Skirball"

Can anyone read the handwriting on this 1910 Census Rec? #general

Deborah Scheimer <debscheim@...>
 

Dear Genners,

As usual, JewishGenners are amazing. Thanks to Roxanne and to the
nearly dozen others who took the time to read the virtually illegible
handwriting in this census record. Most read the info as Roxanne did,
that the nationality was "Russian Yiddish" and the occupation was
"Gent's Furnishings Store."

By the way, a funny (to me) story about researching this record (and a
story that only us Genners can love):

I'd never heard of a proprietor of a Gent's Furnishings Store and
wanted to know what it was. Googling in this instance was less than
satisfactory. Then a crazy thought came to me. I recalled that there
are occupation codes handwritten on the right side of the census based
on the occupation listed for each person. I looked at the record again
and the occupation code was listed as 1-3-3-x. I wondered whether
there was some way for me to look up this code. In this case Google
came through: I found a pdf-version of a book listing all the
Occupation codes for the correct census year. This book didn't list
them in numerical sequence, unfortunately, and each code combination
(1-3 and 3-x) can appear multiple times throughout the book (I had to
read many pages of the book's instructions to understand that part).
Oy! But I really wanted to know what "Gent's Furnishings" were and
hoped that I might find the answer here. So, gritting my teeth, I
began skimming through the book, which was almost 300 pages. About a
third of the way through the book I found it: "Haberdashery!" Well,
what's that? Back to Google again: Haberdashery is a Men's Clothing
Store. Success!

I told my husband this success story and he rolled his eyes. Truly, I
wonder if any normal person can understand this crazy desire to
understand our ancestral story!

Now that I think of it, I should probably have just asked my friends
on this JewishGen Listserve! But then, of course, I would have missed
all that fun!

Happy Hunting!

- Deb Scheimer. Pittsburgh, PA
SEARCHING: Rudick, Gundersheimer, Pervin, Isenberg / Ajzenberg /
Eisenberg, Watzman, Sufrin, Segall, Melman, Binstock / Bean, Jacobson,
Finkelstein, Domb / Dombek. All families ended up at some point in
Pittsburgh, PA.
