Old Vine festival

Old Vine festival | Slovenian Genealogy Research | Scoop.it

The Old Vine Festival is a top tourist culinary-wine-cultural festival in Maribor, the biggest tourist event in autumn. Over 500 participants were recorded this September. The next event will take place on 13 September 2013.

The Old Vine Festival is the main happening in the cycle of events From Vine to Wine, from pruning to St Martin’s Day celebrations, which in Maribor we prepare in the honour of the Old Vine, the oldest vine in the world. It was planted more than 400 years ago infront of a house on Vojašniška street in Maribor. The vine is documented by two pictures dated 1657 and 1681 (kept in museum in Graz, Austria).

The Old Vine is Maribor’s greatest ethnographic sight, which symbolises the rich wine culture of Maribor and Štajerska and is at the same time a starting point and finishing point wine roads, which intertwine the hilly town wine growing district.

Zbogom orožje - dobrodošli spomini | Goodbye to Weapon - Welcome Memories

Zbogom orožje - dobrodošli spomini | Goodbye to Weapon - Welcome Memories | Slovenian Genealogy Research | Scoop.it

Rodoslovje (Genealogy). One of the new opportunities brought by new technologies is digitalization. More and more of life becomes digital and virtual. That is happening also to the past. Genealogists bring back memories of their ancestors and relatives. Genealogical work can be regarded also as a kind of transfer of archival material to modern media. In doing this voluntary genealogical work is complementary to official projects of archives, libraries and other entities.

 

Europeana is one of those. Europeana enables people to explore the digital resources of Europe's museums, libraries, archives and audio-visual collections. It promotes discovery and networking opportunities in a multilingual space where users can engage, share in and be inspired by the rich diversity of Europe's cultural and scientific heritage.

 

Genealogy societies are invited to participate in its project dedicated to the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War: Europeana 1914-1918: Remembering the First World War – a digital collection of outstanding sources from European national libraries (http://www.europeana-collections-1914-1918.eu/del/D4_1_Awareness_and_Dissemination_Plan.pdf).

 

Europeana is organizing some working days also in Slovenia to digitalize photos, postcards, diaries and other documents kept in private archives. Slovenian Genealogy Society and its president Peter Hawlina are actively participating in these activities. Private collections could be scanned or photographed in Nova Gorica (Library of France Bevk, 28 March 2012) in Maribor (War museum, 19 April 2012) or in Celje (main library, 23 May 2012).
