31st IAJGS Conference - The Family Finder #usa

31st IAJGS Conference <dc2011_conference@...>
 

The "Family Finder" is one of the treasures that attendees at the 31st IAJGS
International Conference on Jewish Genealogy will receive. It is an 8 1/2" x
11" book that contains the compiled listing of attendees at the conference
and the surnames and places that the attendees are researching. The last day
for submitting Family Finder data is this Thursday, June 30. Only a few days
remain!

You must register for the conference to submit data for the "Family Finder."
If you have already registered, you can go back into your registration to
add or correct the information that is there.

Is your Family Finder data complete in our records? When you registered, did
you plan to return later and enter your family research information? Have
you done so? Each attendee may enter up to 10 names and places in the
"Family Finder." The first 5 entries will be printed on the conference badge
in large letters for conference attendees to see and read. All 10 entries
will appear in the book. A new feature of the "Family Finder" is a listing
of conference attendees by DNA information/group.

Important! Please observe a few easy rules for entering data. Following
these rules will help make everyone's data uniform for ease of comparison.
For details, please review guidelines in the Family Finder article
<http://dc2011.org/index.php/register/family-finder> on the DC2011 Internet site.

Although online registration for the conference will continue until July 31
and you can even show up and register at the conference, if you do not
complete your "Family Finder" entries by the Thursday deadline, the
information will not be in the printed book and you will miss the great
opportunity to share your information with everyone attending the
conference.

If you haven't registered yet, be sure to do so before Friday, July 1, to
enter your Family research surnames. Start on the DC2011 Registration info
page <http://dc2011.org/index.php/register>.

See you in August!

HTML volunteers needed for the ShtetLinks Project #usa

Susana Leistner Bloch
 

Dear Friends,

When we submitted a previous message, asking for volunteers to help
create ShtetLinks webpages several people responded and we now have a
wonderful team of dedicated and overworked volunteers. However,
there are not enough of them and prospective webpage owners have to
wait for months to get technical help.

Our webpages are "Cyberspace Yizkor Books". Just as former residents
took it upon themselves to record all they could remember and publish
a Yizkor Book in memory of their Jewish community , so we, the next
generation, should make sure that whatever we have, every little bit
of information that sheds light on the lives of our Jewish
communities is recorded and preserved. The people who published
Yizkor Books usually were in contact with others living in the same
town or country. Contact with their landsmen in other countries was
difficult. To us, in the 21st century, there are no limitations.
Cyberspace has opened up the world to us.

If you have the necessary skills we urge you to volunteer and help
someone create a webpage dedicated to a Kehilla / Shtetl / Town /
Immigrant Neighbourhood, and in this way honour and memorialize the
Jewish community that once lived there and also provide a valuable
resource for their descendants.

What is "hold for one sailing" #general

Dalya Dektor
 

I have had the passenger manifest for my great-grandfather and his family
for many years. Recently, I again looked at it online to determine the
destination person and address.

I found a "Record of Aliens Held for Special Inquiry" page. And of course
the reminder posted here before - always look at the end of the passenger
manifest for more information comes to mind.

What I found on this page was my ggf listed with cause of detention - son in
hospital Under column departmental/executive orders is written "hold for one
sailing."

Twelve lines below him, my gf is listed with cause of detention - discharged
fr ???(perhaps hosp) Jan ?/04 11:50 am.
Under column departmental/executive orders is written "hold for one sailing."

Another entry on the page is a family member listed with cause of detention
" (ditto marks under the word died on lines above. Under the column
departmental/executive orders is written "hold for one sailing."

These 3 entries have me and the experts I have asked in a quandrey. At this
point I cannot enter a viewmate picture, but the ship is the UMBRIA arriving
NY Jan 11, 1904 >from Liverpool-Record of Aliens Held for Special Inquiry page.
The names of interest are line 8 (ggf-Gechtar, Salmen) line 20 (gf-Gechtar
Moische) and line 18 (Kras,Jdel)

If you can shed some light on these lines and the meaning hold for one
sailing, I would appreciate your help.

Could "Samuel" Have Been "Schiel"? #general

BJ Rudman <bjrudman@...>
 

I am trying to determine whether my Great Uncle, who called himself Samuel
once he immigrated to the United States, could have been identified as
"Schiel" when he got on the boat in Hamburg. Is there usually a tie between
these two names?

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Masonic Lodge details #unitedkingdom

carob52@...
 

Can anyone give me suggestions on where I can go to find some historical
background on the Masonic Leadenhall Lodge. I've come across quite a
few online references to different Lodges names and the Ledenhall street
address but nothing has given me the exact matching Lodge name and
number, so perhaps they renamed themselves later in the 20th century
I'm after details >from the early 1920s when I know that my
grandfatherwas the "Worshipful Master" in 1924.

Thank you

Information/Picture of Leiser SALZ from Jawrow and Krakow #general

Brian Blitz
 

On behalf of my 93 year old grandmother, I have been trying to locate any
documentation that might have a picture of her father Leiser SALZ.

Leiser SALZ (on some documents, Leiser HAUSELBERG) was born in October 1887
in Jaworow (now Yavoriv, Ukraine). He married Scheindel ZIMMERMAN z. WEBER
in Jaworow in 1911, was wounded in World War One and moved to Krakow, Poland.

In Krakow, the family lived on Mostowa Street. Leisor operated a brush
factor with his brothers Israel SALZ and Nuchem SALZ. The family operated a
brush factory in the Krakow Ghetto and later in the Plaszow Concentration
Camp. Lesor was murdered in Buchenwald at the end of 1944. I should note
that on Holocaust-era documents I've received, he listed his birth year as
1897, rather than 1887.

With the help of some very generous people, I have managed to get copies of
the Krakow Ghetto Registrations / Kennkarten for my grandmother's mother
(Scheindel) and a few other family members. I have looked through the
databases on Jewishgen and shoreshim.org and have written to the ITS and the
USHMM, but have not had any luck on getting any documents with Leiser's
picture.

I would greatly appreciate the help of anyone who might have some ideas of
where else I can look. As you might imagine, we have no pictures of my
great-grandfather and my grandmother would like very much to have one.
