New Book from YIVO/Yale #general

Sandra and Donald Hirschhorn <donsandyh@...>
 

"The Last Days of Jerusalem of Lithuania: Chronicles >from the Vilna Ghetto
and the Camps, 1939-1944" is now listed on The JewishGen Mall for
pre-publication sale. This is the long-awaited English translation of the
Yiddish diaries of Herman Kruk, a Bundist activist >from Warsaw, who fled to
Vilna at the beginning of World War II.

Kruk, who organized and oversaw the library of the Vilna Ghetto, also played
an active role in several of the ghetto's social welfare and cultural
organizations. Kruk, along with poet Abraham Sutzkever and others, secretly
worked to rescue and hide many rare books and artifacts >from the Nazis.
Like Emanuel Ringelblum in the Warsaw Ghetto, Kruk was a resolute chronicler
of day-to-day life under the Nazis with full awareness that he might not
live until the war's end. Thankfully, his diary has survived to reveal the
horrors of that time to future generations.

This new English-language edition, published jointly by YIVO and Yale
University Press with assistance >from the Nusach Vilne Society, has been
edited by Professor Benjamin Harshav, Blaustein Professor of Hebrew and
Comparative Literature at Yale, and translated by Barbara Harshav.

According to the publisher, the book will become available next month.
However, you can place your order now at the very special pre-publication
price of $32.95 by visiting the JewishGen Mall at
http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgenmall, clicking on 'Browse Mall Now,' then
on 'Books' and 'Holocaust and Resistance.'

Help to support the important work of Jewishgen.org while shopping in the
comfort of your home.

Thank you.

Re: Looking up something in the census #general

Rick Spears <rspears@...>
 

Marie, You may be able to go to your main library in your town and look it
up. Start with the 1920 Census. Have the librarian help you find the soundex
spelling of the name which will look something like: K-122 etc. Then look in
the census book for the correct microfilm for that particular soundex. The
microfilm will be an alphabetical index of each soundex name. Find the
correct soundex on the film, there may be many on one film and search for
the last name you are looking for and then the first name. If you are lucky
to find the correct name, THEN you can go seach the actual census using the
information on the index to find the exact microfilm that has his census.

Its not as hard as it sounds...

How do I go about looking up an address in the US census? I want to
check on an address in both 1910 and 1920. I would also like to look up
2 surnames in those years. The address is in Brooklyn.
Thanks to everyone for the help of late, I am fortunate to have found
this group, and am incredibly lucky that there are so many knowledgeable
and helpful members!

Rhode Island Cemetery Help #general

I have a death certificate indicating an ancestor's burial in the "Jewish
Cemetery" in Rhode Island, probably in or near Providence, in 1905. I can find
no current listing for this cemetery. Can anyone in Rhode Island help me out?
Please reply privately.

Re: Jewish Roots traced to Tes, Veszprem, Hungary? #general

Charles Vitez <vitez@...>
 

I cannot help, except to point out that Magashegyi is the exact Hungarian
equivalent of Hochberger. The use of the "i" at the end indicates a Jew
hungarianising his name. However, 1860 is a little early for that generally.
