With great excitement we've been waiting for 1 April. For on that day all the genealogists were informed around the world who had submitted a proposed topic if her lecture topic will be accepted.
And no, it's no April Fool's joke. My submitted presentation design was adopted and I to 39th International Conference on Jewish Geneaolgie to Cleveland, Ohio, from 28 July to 02 August 2019 invited! :-)
I'm really happy about this invitation, both for myself and for "my" museum'm very grateful and consider it a true honor to speak in front of hundreds of Jewish genealogists from all over the world.
Title of my presentation:
Help! I can not Hebrew, but I need Hebrew sources for my genealogy research.
Even without (thorough) knowledge of Hebrew, it is usually possible to pick out the most important biographical information from Hebrew sources.
It should here not be betrayed all too much, but the direction is quite clear: Many genealogists can not Hebrew, and are therefore unable approximately in a Jewish cemetery with Hebrew grave inscriptions the "right" to find (ie looking) grave. Or find them in the parish registers its "Ignaz Kohn" who is registered with his Hebrew name in Hebrew; And why this Hebrew first name for genealogical research is often very important ...
Of course, we will report on the conference in text and picture!
