Austria-Czech SIG #Austria-Czech Yizkor Book Project for April 2005 #austria-czech

Joyce Field

Because of the Pesach holiday, April 2005 was a "short" month and our production
reflects that. One new book and 14 updated books went online. All translations
can be accessed at
and the current additions have been flagged to make the search easier.

I would like to remind all new researchers that you can find whether a yizkor
book has been written about a particular town at the Yizkor Book Database, You can search the Necrology
Index at
Our index to this database says the following:

"The JewishGen Yizkor Book Necrology Database indexes the names of persons in
the necrologies -- the lists of Holocaust martyrs -- published in the Yizkor
Books appearing on the JewishGen Yizkor Book Translation Project. This database
is only an index of names; it directs researchers back to the Yizkor Book itself,
where more complete information may be available.

This database allows the surnames to be searched via soundex. Because most of
these names were transliterated >from Hebrew and Yiddish, the spellings of the
surnames may not be as you are used to seeing them in Latin-alphabet sources."

This database currently contains over 165,000 entries >from the necrologies of
177 different yizkor books. Remember that not all yizkor books have necrologies.

New book:

"With a rifle in my hand and Eretz Israel in my heart" by Dov Levin,

Updated books:

-Belchatow, Poland,
-Belchatow, Poland,
-Bolekhov, Ukraine

As always, we wish to thank all the donors of material and the project
coordinators for their donations of translations and their precious time.
Nothing can be accomplished without your interest in the Yizkor Book Project.
We are always interested in new material and look forward to hearing >from
researchers wanting to start a new translation project.
