JewishGen Staffing Update - New Senior Level Position #belarus

Avraham Groll
 

Dear JewishGen Community,

I'm pleased to announce another staffing shift as we continue to
develop JewishGen's internal structure to make the best use of our
resources.

As of last week, Warren Blatt has assumed the new position of Senior
Genealogist for JewishGen.

In this newly created senior level position, Warren will ensure that
the JewishGen website remains reflective of genealogical standards and
that the archival transcriptions are as accurate as possible. He will
accomplish this by providing strategic direction and support to the
Senior Research Team, while also serving as the primary liaison with
technical staff for database projects.

As Senior Genealogist, Warren will also play a larger role in
representing JewishGen at various speaking engagements, and responding
to media requests for comments on Jewish genealogical issues.

Warren's technical background and genealogical expertise make him
particularly suited for this position. A software engineer before
joining the JewishGen staff in 2003, he has worked in various roles,
most recently in the position of Managing Director. Previously, as
JewishGen's Editor-in-Chief, he authored the JewishGen FAQ
("Frequently Asked Questions About Jewish Genealogy"), and dozens of
JewishGen InfoFiles. He is the author of Resources for Jewish
Genealogy in the Boston Area (Boston: JGSGB, 1996), and co-author of
Getting Started in Jewish Genealogy (Avotaynu, 1999), and other works.

Widely recognized for his contributions to Jewish genealogy, in 2004
he was awarded the International Association of Jewish Genealogical
Societies (IAJGS) Lifetime Achievement Award in Jerusalem.

Please join me in congratulating Warren on his new position.

Finding Aid to Online Danzig Civil Records updated with name indexes #danzig #gdansk #germany #poland

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

Thanks to the ongoing efforts of Rodney Eisfelder and new
contributions >from Joyaa Antares, Logan Kleinwaks, and Dan Ruby, there
has been a significant update to the Finding Aid to Online Danzig
Civil Records, 1874-1914 at
https://www.jewishgen.org/danzig/findingaidcivil.php

That web page now includes a partial index of marriages where either
the bride or groom's religion is stated to be Jewish (i.e., including
mixed marriages) for 1875-1901. Eventually, the partial index will
extend to 1914 and this information plus additional details >from the
records will be fully searchable in the Danzig Database that is part
of the JewishGen All-Germany and All-Poland Databases (both now
searchable via the JewishGen Unified Database Search).

Also, the description in the yellow box has been updated with
information about searchable partial indexes to civil birth, marriage,
and death records on the website of the West Pomeranian Genealogical
Society (https://serwer1735115.home.pl/wyszukiwarka/). These indexes
are based on offline indexes available in the Gdansk Archives and
prepared many years ago by Marianna Stanke, which previously were
(supposedly) not allowed to be put online. They are very helpful, but
be advised they are not 100% accurate and do not always indicate
religion, so always look at any corresponding record scans that might
be of interest.

Please read the yellow box carefully as it describes strategies for
finding civil records even though they are not yet fully indexed.

I'd like to especially thank Rodney for his rigorous approach to
creating the marriage index. Each civil record (Jewish or not) was
independently examined by two people and any differences in the
information they extracted >from the Jewish records were then resolved
by further examination. I am confident that the data produced by
Rodney's team will have the highest accuracy we can hope for.

If you would like to help transcribe the civil marriage records
(written in German Kurrent-style script) or other records we are
working on, please contact me.

Dear all,

Have you encountered a first name Bigel (Bet-Yud-Gimmel-Lamed)?

I have searched all different sources (e.g. Beider's books, Yad
Vashem database etc.), but did not come across any mention for this
name.

I am looking for this *exact* name, and not any similar names such as
"Feigil".

Kind regards,

Eilja Borstein, b. 17 Aug 1902 in Vilna (violin)
Joak Borstein, b. 9 Sept 1904 in Vilna ( trumpet) all three reportedly
went to NYC
B. Weinrab ( trombone)
Melech Granat (drums)
E. Ziskowitc ( double bass)
Jerzy or Georg Richter ( voice)
Luba Kupritc ( vocalist >from Kovno)
Rafael Wolfberg ( clarinet)
If anyone can locate any information on any of these orchestra
members, I would be most grateful.
Thanks....Walter S. Elias, St. Louis Park, Minnesota

research LEVIN-PERLBACH #danzig #gdansk #germany #poland

My name is Ron Peeters and I live in Ulvenhout (The Netherlands). When
researching the background of the Jewish side of my family in Cape
Town I found a very interesting link to my ancestors of which I hope
to find out more.

One of my ancestors, Meyer LEWIN (in England recorded as LEVIN) left
Danzig before 1814 when other members of his family adopted the family
name 'PERLBACH'. His brother Hirsh Lewin PERLBACH became an important
amber dealer and Meyer became his agent in London.

On line consulting the CAHJP files in Jerusalem I found there the
Hirsch Levin Perlbachse Familienstiftung and in it there are two
files which I assume contain information I am interested in:

566 Korrespondentz Enth.: Geburts- und Sterbeurkuden der
Perlebachschen Verwandtschaft 1875-1890;

1650a Handakte des Rechtsanwalts Gall (1815-1823) Enth.: Stambaum der
Familie Perlbach Intus: Mitgeliederlist der Altschotlaender Gemeinde,
1819, 1887-1892.

Since the CAHJP does not offer a copy serice I wonder if you can help
me directly or indirectely through a contact in Jerusalem.

Thanks in advance and kind regards,
