SHALOM Shtetl CO-OP PLOCK! #poland

Ada Holtzman <ada01@...>
 

Shalom,

With great pleasure I announce that the Shtetl CO-OP Plock, (Poland)
now has been completed! I waited a long time to this moment...
It is not Krakow, Bialystok or Lodz - but still, quite a venture for
very busy people...

It is now on-line in JRI database: http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/

PLOCK PL WA 18139

1733679
1733680/1

18139 (!) records which have been added to JRI growing database. This
was a process which took one year and a half to complete, hundreds (!)
of emails,
many volunteers >from all continents who transcribed the data and
two volunteers who xeroxed the microfilms for this project and others
who donated the money needed to the translation of the Russian records.
I thank them all!
Without their help, dedication to the cause, this could not have been
achieved!

In the name of all present Plock and area's researchers, now and in
the future to come, I thank my dear volunteers and contributors:
John Holcenberg, Joan Krotenberg, Rita (Heller) Benchimol, Harriet
Brown Eisner, Richard, Lichenstein Simon >from USA, Anthony Stern from
Qatar, Gideon Carmi, Gabi Lana, Willy Zalmon, >from Israel, Harvey Kaplan

from Scotland, Kirsten and Morris Gradel >from Denemark.
I also send my special thanks to all the JRI team, among them: Stanley
Diamond, Michael Tobias, Sheila Salo and the tireless Hadassah Lipsius
who run back and forth to her FHC center in order to check many
microfilms, as I had no access to the original ones and eventually you
need such access for a project such as this.

It is amazing how this work was done by this international team, united
with one aim: preserve the traces of the Jews of Plock.

An elderly lady >from Plock, now in her mid eighties, Holocaust
survivor, when she viewed the material and found the records of
her grandparents and great-grandparents, told me crying,
"you cannot understand what it means to me see these indices,
proof of my family's existence in this ancient town, a town from
which I was so cruelly expelled..."

Plock was among the oldest Jewish communities of Poland, with rich
history going back to 1237!
Shtetl Co-op Plock was just one project out of many, part of
my "P.R.I.": Plock Remembrance Initiative, web site:
http://www.geocities.com/Paris/Rue/4017/INDPLOCK.HTM

For the last time I say now: SHALOM Shtetl CO-OP PLOCK!
and we shall meet again, in another town.

1) In Chelmno, first death camp, a notebook with the horrible testimonies
of
the last prisoners found and kept in the Russian archives until it was

Re: KOLOZSVAR-pre-Trianon Hungary #hungary

Tomer Brunner <tomerbr@...>
 

Dear H-siggers,

A very good book about the Kolozsvar jewish community is:
"The Cluj-Kolozsvar memorbook" (NOT sure about the English title!)
The book was edited by Dr. Moshe Karmeli-Weinberger / New-York 1970.
It's written Hebrew, English and Hungarian.

Another nice (but only Hebrew) book is:" ZICHRON NETZACH LAKEHILA
HAKDOSHA KOLOZSVAR-KLAUZENBURG ASHER NECHREVA BASHOA "/ Shlomo
Zimroni and Yehuda Schwartz/ Israel, 1968.
It was published as a project of school children to commemorate
this great jewish community.

(IsraelWire-2/17) The South African Friends of Beth Hatefutsoth have created
a new Web site, providing information about their Country Communities
Research Project launched in 1992.

The Jews of South Africa have had a vibrant and rich relationship with the
country communities. Migration has changed the Jewish landscape; Jewish
presence in many of the smaller communities has been radically reduced or
non-existent.

Under the auspices of the South African Friends of Beth Hatefutsoth,
researchers and experts are compiling data >from 975 towns in South Africa
with some Jewish presence.

The documenting of the Jewish Communities of South Africa is being
researched for Beth Hatefutsoth. The information will be incorporated into a

KHRAPUN-A name and a shetel #general

I know that the original name of my father's family in Lithuania was
Khrapun and that family members were still using it in 1895. According
to the Dictionary of Russian names its derivation was >from Belarus.
I have just discovered that there was a shetel in Belarus by the same
name. Does anyone have any suggestions as how to proceed >from here.
I've contacted 2 people on the JGFF. Any other ideas would be greatly
appreciated.

Lots of addresses/lots of envelopes; Software help? #general

Michael Horowitz <mhorowit@...>
 

Folks -

As much as I prefer a more precise approach, I'm considering
mailing all 91 Rudinskys I've found in the telephone CD. They will
dump all the Rudinskys to a floppy for me, but it is up to me to
get those addresses (and my return address) on an envelope. I'd
prefer not using labels as (at least for me) labels are a visual
clue that I'm getting advertisement.

Can anyone recommend a software program which will use a file
of names and addresses as input and will print my return address
and the addressees name/address on an envelope?

I have no interest in this product. I just got this book out of the
library and it is loaded with good information on Prague, Warsaw, Cracow
and Budapest including some Rabbinic family history, notable Jewish
community members, Synagogue information, cemetary details for notable
residents, tour and traveler information and extensive history of the Jews
for each city. I highly recommend it to travelers or researchers with
connections to any of these cities. It is an excellent book.
