"Avraham Y. Kahana"<avreimale@...> asked on Tue, 6 Aug 2019:
Besides exhausting all search options (all online major databases,
ship manifests, etc), are there any specific steps one should perform
after locating potential relatives in the Warsaw Jews Who Survived
WWII, 1948 archive?
MODERATOR NOTE: Information about this JewishGen database may be found
at
https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Holocaust/0203_Warsaw_survivors.html
Search the Yad Vashem Pages of Testimony (POTs) for names of those who
submitted POTs of Warsaw people. Many of these could be survivors and those
who submitted and are still alive might have first hand knowledge.

(Use online telephone directories if contact details on POT is likely to be

Re: 20 Romanian cities -Survivors #romania

rhodamoore@...
 

Please note that in the book published in Jewish Gen about Bacau, chapter
entitled "Demographic Evolution if Jewish Population in Bacau,"
it is stated that in 1742 the ruler of Moldavia ordered the sheriff of
Bacau to assist the Jews Avram and Boroh in establishing themselves in Bacau.
So the list herein that says that Alba Iulia was the only town where Jews were
permitted to live prior to 1857 is incorrect.

Kahanofsky, Karnofsky or Kaganovich #ukraine

Barbara Saperstone <bsaperstone@...>
 

I am looking for my Grandmother's family. She says she came >from a small town outside of Kiev - a small town called Mahalkah or Malin, Kiev in the Ukraine. I believe her parents lived in Dymer (Kimmer) in the Ukraine. May also have been near the Dneiper River. The family name is Mordecai (Motel) Kahanofsky, Karnofsky or Kaganovich. Any help would be appreciated.

INTRO - researching my mostly German family #germany

Gerald Stern <gerald@...>
 

Hello GerSig,

I just joined the group following my attendance at the IAJGS conference
in Cleveland, OH. As requested, here is my introductory email.

I have been doing genealogy research foraround 15 years.  Having taken
most of my ancestral lines back as far as archival records go, I
consider myself to be reasonably advanced in doing German Jewish
Genealogy research. However, there are always little gaps or bits of
family history I would like to add.

I live in England between Newcastle upon Tyne and greater London. My
father came to England in March 1939 thanks to the Kindertransport - his
immediate family were all murdered in KZ. My mother was born in
Amsterdam, grew up in Geneva, but her family were all German. My wife's
family are also all German refugees escaping before WW2.

My native language is English and I also know some French and a
smattering of German.

I am fairly adept with a computer and particularly in graphics.  I am
competent at using the internet and host a website with my genealogical
database: www.sternmail.co.uk/sld

I have traced almost every ancestral line in my family back to the 1700s
and a few earlier.

I have a current goal to try and link my fifth great grandfather, Baruch
WEIL (born about 1744 place unknown - died 21/31 Jan 1846 in Altdorf
near Ettenheim (buried in the Schmieheim Cemetery) where he was the
Juedische Vohrsteher and Mohel - his father was Schmuel WEIL) to one of
the famous Weil/WEILL family descendant trees. Any help would be amazing!

My JGFF Researcher ID number is 326936.

I have entered several family names and ancestral towns in
the JGFF (JewishGen Family Finder). Some are shown below.
These are some of the very many families and towns I am researching:

[Moderator Note: The complete list is too long to include here.
It is very extensive. Write to Mr. Stern <gerald@...>
or check his website to see the entire list.]

ALTSCHUL (of Ingenheim), BARUCH (of Kroiterchine, Fracquemont/ Valkenburg),
BLUMENTHAL (of Weyer), CAHN (of Meudt, Langendernbach, Herborn, Montabaur
and other towns in the Westerwald area), COHN(of Deutsch Eylau),
FISCHER (of Bischofswerder, Deutsch Eylau), GOLDSCHMIDT (of Runkel),
GOMBERICH (of Weyer), GRUENBAUM (of Seelbach, Hahnstaetten)
HAAS (of Ingenheim), HECHT(of Holzhausen auf der Haide, Rennerod), FULD
(of Langendernbach, Brandoberndorf), HEILBERG (of Quirnbach), and
(of Meudt, Langendernbach, Herborn, Montabaur and other towns in the
Westerwald area),

2019 JewishGen conference in Cleveland (1) #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Hello everybody,

The conference in Cleveland is now a history, and I want to update you
with our Bessarabia region participation.

==ShareFair (Sunday): we had our Bessarabia SIG table filled with
booklets, maps, articles and broshures. This year there was a big
intrested in our table. Many people just stopped, asked where is this
region, and some had ancestors >from their or close by areas of Ukraine
or Romania. In addition to Inna Vayner and myself we had two more
volunteers at the table: Alan Levine, Carol Shkolnik. Many thanks to
them.

==Bessarabia SIG Luncheon (Tuesday): in addition to meeting our members
(about 30 people), we had a presentation by Sheli Fain "Eliyahu Meitus
poet of Love, Desperation and Joy". It was a terrific story about a
poet and translator >from Bessarabia. We heard poetry, family stories
and more. I believe that this should be part of our genealogy research,
and I am glad that Sheli shared with us this story. Here is a recording
of Sheli's presentation:
https://www.facebook.com/100012320651242/videos/719816548439027/

==Bessarabia SIG Meeting (Tuesday): this year we decided to ask
questions to participants and listen to them. Here is a list of 7
questions. We asked to answer questions they fill comfortable with:

1. Please introduce yourself (name and place of residence)
2. Share information about your ancestors >from Bessarabia/Moldova:
surnames and towns
3. Did you subscribe to Bessarabia SIG Discussion group and are you a
member of the Facebook Bessarabia / Moldovan Jewish Roots Group
4. What sources of information did you use to advance your research?
Have you worked with Romania (Bessarabia) database, Bessarabia SIG
website, other resources?
5. What features and what information do you find the most useful and
beneficial for research when it comes to JewishGen.org and Bessarabia
SIG website and which ones don’t present benefit in your view?
6. Suggest new projects for Bessarabia SIG
7. Share your Success story

The session was also recorded at Facebook, and you can hear it at
https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=bessarabian%20%2F%20moldavian%20jewish%20roots&epa=SEARCH_BOX
and I also suggest, if you were not at the conference, please answer

Visit JewishGen's New Website #bessarabia

bounce-3716063-887197@...
 

JewishGen is pleased to announce our newly designed website at
www.JewishGen.org. We commissioned the creation of a new landing page
to serve as a launching point for the main components of the website.
The site is built on a modern, secure platform, which is beneficial
for a number of reasons, including:

*It has a more intuitive and user-friendly design,
*It is mobile-responsive, and
*It has a more familiar platform, which will make it easier for us to
find qualified consultants, contractors and volunteers to help us in
the future.

This is not the final plan. It's a stop-gap redesign that addresses
some of the shortcomings of our website by creating a visually
appealing, mobile-friendly, and easy to navigate homepage that
researchers can utilize to find key components on the JewishGen site.
While we attracted approximately one million unique visitors to the
JewishGen site last year, only a small portion of this group actually
registered or became regular users. We anticipate that an enhanced
website will improve these results.

Specifically, we hope the new landing page will help guide researchers to:

*Search the online collection
*Locate ancestral communities
*Explore life in their ancestral communities
*Join our discussion groups
*Volunteer, and
*Donate.

Over the next two months, we will begin crafting a proper technology
strategy, which will include our website and databases. In the
meantime, however, this new landing page will immediately help
researchers, while also demonstrating JewishGen's strategic focus.

Thank you to everyone on our staff and volunteer leadership team for
their suggestions and contributions to making this happen. Special
thanks to Scott Seidenstock, Gary Sandler, and Warren Blatt.

Please enjoy the site and visit www.JewishGen.org now. Feedback and
suggestions will be most welcome!

Bessarabia SIG #Bessarabia Visit JewishGen's New Website #bessarabia

JewishGen is pleased to announce our newly designed website at
www.JewishGen.org. We commissioned the creation of a new landing page
to serve as a launching point for the main components of the website.
The site is built on a modern, secure platform, which is beneficial
for a number of reasons, including:

*It has a more intuitive and user-friendly design,
*It is mobile-responsive, and
*It has a more familiar platform, which will make it easier for us to
find qualified consultants, contractors and volunteers to help us in
the future.

This is not the final plan. It's a stop-gap redesign that addresses
some of the shortcomings of our website by creating a visually
appealing, mobile-friendly, and easy to navigate homepage that
researchers can utilize to find key components on the JewishGen site.
While we attracted approximately one million unique visitors to the
JewishGen site last year, only a small portion of this group actually
registered or became regular users. We anticipate that an enhanced
website will improve these results.

Specifically, we hope the new landing page will help guide researchers to:

*Search the online collection
*Locate ancestral communities
*Explore life in their ancestral communities
*Join our discussion groups
*Volunteer, and
*Donate.

Over the next two months, we will begin crafting a proper technology
strategy, which will include our website and databases. In the
meantime, however, this new landing page will immediately help
researchers, while also demonstrating JewishGen's strategic focus.

Thank you to everyone on our staff and volunteer leadership team for
their suggestions and contributions to making this happen. Special
thanks to Scott Seidenstock, Gary Sandler, and Warren Blatt.

Please enjoy the site and visit www.JewishGen.org now. Feedback and
suggestions will be most welcome!

Re: Testing the #Hashtags Function

Rachel Kolokoff Hopper <r-hopper@...>
 

A little bit more on hashtags. To see how they function for this group, log in on line and go to "Messages". All of the messages that have been posted to the group appear here. Above all of the messages you will see a blue # Hashtags box.

 

Click on the blue box and you will see all of the hashtags that have been created to sort messages by subject.



Click on the #test hashtag and now you will see a screen that shows the number of messages with the hashtag "test". Look for the little black circle with the number in it to see how many messages there are related to this subject. In this case there are 6 messages with the hashtag "test." 



Click on the subject (test) and now you will see all of the messages related to this topic. 

Subscribers can create hashtags as they post, and moderators can create hashtags after the message is already posted. 

One way to sort messages into subjects that you are interested in.

Hashtags apply to social media postings and make subjects searchable. This is something I work with a whole lot, but haven't done much with it genealogy-wise.  Will take a look on the jewishgen link and see...
 
So far I a finding this beta a bit awkward.
