JewishGen Education has updated its classes and its formats 2020

We are delighted to offer a new range of courses in 2020.

1. 3 week Mentored Classes with personal instruction based on helping a
student progress with research projects.
2. Home Study classes which are delivered electronically
3. Workbook courses which are Free. Tuition is waived for Value Added
members of JewishGen who have donated $100 to the General Fund in the
last 12 months.

The three week classes are taught in a unique FORUM, a personal
mentoring experience, where students have the opportunity to share their
story and work one step at a time with the instructor. Students are
encouraged to post one branch, set goals for their research and work
interactively. Instructors are familiar with a wide range of resources
and offer text lessons to accompany the research process.

Home Study consists of PDF lessons. Consider the beginning course for
organization and basic research skills (census, vital records, manifests)
then move on to the Complex U.S. course which covers naturalization,
military, governmental records, and local archival research.

Workbook Basic Courses are self-paced text based PDFs with exercises
covering genealogical tools to enhance research skills. Tuition is waived
for Value Added members of JewishGen who have donated $100 to the General
Fund in the last 12 months.

We strongly encourage researchers to look at the course details,
instructor's credentials and student requirements (time, fee,
prerequisites) on the updated education web page:
www.jewishgen.org/education . Course Registration opens two weeks before
the course start date. If, after reviewing the education page, you have
some questions, please email

Re: New Belarus Data #belarus

I was very excited to see these new additions to the Belarus database, and
thank everyone who helped make this possible.

My immediate interest was Novogrudok, where I found records I had previously
seen >from 1858, but I did not see any >from 1850. Am I doing something
wrong, or is the date below in error?

Thank you,

Re: Help Stop USCIS Genealogy Program Fee Hikes

400% is of course outrageous.  But it seems a bit ironic that an organization that charges $100 to see SIG information is complaining about high costs.

Re: Zivia (Sveya, Sophie) KLAFF FAMILANT #latvia

Scott Familant <familant@...>
 

Hello

I'm trying to do research on my great-grandmother, but have hit a dead
end using JewishGen. She was born some time in the 1860-70's and was
in Philadelphia by 1896 and lived in Pocomoke, MD for a while before
returning to Philadelphia and then ultimately settling in Newport News,
where she died in 1962. Her parents were (Abraham?) Eliezer and Zelda
(Tamara?) KLAFF. She had a number of siblings including Moses Mendel,
Schmuel Zalman, Beneisch, Chana Riva Kirschner, Zlata Shapire, Ida
Butler, Pesach Ornoff, and Hannach, to name a few. Some stayed back
while others also settled in the Mid Atlantic states around the turn of
the century. I understand that Eliezer came >from a family of chazans.
Indeed, Schmuel Zalman ultimately served as a reverend in South Africa
and a relative >from another branch, Moses Claff, served as one in
England. Shavl is consistently identified as the home region for
Zivia's parents and siblings. However, her death certificate says she
was born in Latvia. I don't know if that's a mistake or true. I know
one of Zivia's sisters (Minna Weinberg) apparently lived in Riga and I
understand that Schmuel may have been trained as a cantor in Riga. So
perhaps Latvia isn't so far far-fetched. Plus, Zivia seems to be among
the youngest of her siblings by perhaps a decade or more. So maybe her
parents moved later in life?

If anyone has any thought or leads as to how I can try to solve the
mystery of Zivia's birthplace, I'd be very appreciative.

Help with Headstone Translation

Meyer Denn
 

Hello All,

I am having great difficulty deciphering the date on this headstone. Can someone here enhance this photo so that the date (day, month and year) can be ascertained? 

I can make out the name Shraga Feivel ben Yisrael, and I can even make out the month of Sivan, but I can't get anymore.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I’m following the life of Bettina WORMSER, d/o Joseph WORMSER and Sadie ANDERSON.

Bettina, b 1902, NYC wed Joseph David WORMSER in 1923. She divorced him in Feb 1936 in Reno, Nevada.
,
They had two sons: Benjamin (named for his paternal GF) b 1924. and James b about 1930.

The last mention I can find of these two boys is on the 1940 census.They are living with their mother at the home of their maternal GP.

The transcription lists them as Bettina BORZIR, Benjamin and James BORZIMER.

Does anyone know anything about them?

Trip to Lvov (Lviv) UKRAINE on April 2020 #ukraine

Hi all,

I am planning a trip to Lvov (Lviv) on next April 2020 for the first
time, and would like to hear any suggestions and comments about the
city.
I have some addresses >from ancestors that lived in the area, but I
also would like to visit the archive to do some research, go to the
cemetery looking for records or burials, visit synagogues and Jewish
areas (if they are) and of course do a bit of regular tourism with my
wife, mom and 2 kids (17 & 11).

Any suggestions, comments or tips would be appreciated. If you have
recommendations of locals that can help, much better.
Feel free to answer me directly.

Best regards
Daniel Horowitz

Reichsvereinigung der Juden in Deutschland: Letter T #germany

Lande
 

501 names of persons whose family names began with the letter T have been
added to the Reichsvereinigung database available at Steve Morse's website
under the heading Jewish Roof Organization. This information will also be
added to Jewishgen's Holocaust database.

This brings the total of Reichvereinigung names to 28,548. All of the names
may be viewed on the Bad Arolsen website, though my database includes
information and corrections >from other sources.

While all the persons whose names appear in this collection resided in
Germany at some point between 1933 and 1942, many of them were born
elsewhere, particularly in East Europe.
