Kudos to Matt Friedman for setting down in print and distributing his
worthwhile ideas. For the past year, I have been privately discussing the
very same sources, namely yearly synagogue memorial books, as well as their
weekly lists and monthly newsletters, as superb sources of Jewish family
names.

I personally have a dozen such items relating to Beth David Congregation in
Miami, Florida, and Temple Beth Am in Los Angeles, California. I hereby
volunteer my services.

Prushim is a group of early Jerusalemites, who came to Israel >from eastern
Europe about 200 years ago. They were primarily followers of the Gr"a, the
Gaon of Vilna,who were ardent non (or anti) chassidim.

One of the major Burial societies in Jerusalem, if not the largest is the
society affiliated with this group. The family which runs the society is
called GELBSTEIN and the phone# is: 5384144 ( >from outside of Israel

The picture says:
Bonvalet
Entree des Salons
that means: Bonvalet - entrance to the halls.

BONVALET is an old French surname that was known already in the 17th
century.
I do not know where these halls were in Paris.

The "Cercle de Genealogie Juive" Website has a part dedicated "questions and

Seeking Feivel WOLF, Holocaust survivor #general

Readers,
I am trying to find a cousin, Feivel WOLF, originally >from Krynki,
Poland, who survived the Holocaust and submitted many (80+) Pages of
Testimony to Yad Vashem in 1957 >from his address, "Tel Aviv, Mikveh
Israel 4, Malon."

Feivel, born in 1920, wrote sections that appear in the Yizkor book,
"Pinkus Krynki," about his life during WWII and his escape >from the
Holocaust. To see a picture of him at that time go to
www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Krynki/kry305.html#Page311

So far: Tracing through the Israeli Ministry of Interior found
nothing. No luck with the Israel phone book.
His name etc was entered with the Israel Genealogical Society -- but so
far, no response.

Any other suggestions would be appreciated. Please write to me at
m.palmer@charter.net

Re: A new project / untapped resource ?? #general

Mark Halpern
 

Not **Completely** untapped.

BIALYGen, the Bialystok Region Jewish Genealogy Group, has developed a
relationship with The Bialystoker Center in New York City. BIALYGen has
borrowed over 5,000 Yahrzeit cards >from the Center and is in the process
of scanning these cards. Using the digital images, volunteers will
create an Excel database, which will be submitted to JewishGen and be
available for everyone to search. Many of these cards have 3 or 4
generations of the family listed including the married names of daughter
and sisters.

Please read about this project at
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/bialygen/YahrzeitCards.htm .

As the moderator stated, anyone can start a project and such projects
could have great genealogical value.

Dear One and All:

There is an untapped resource hanging around out there.

I am talking about memorial plaques hanging on the walls in the
synagogues.
Especially older ones where first and second generation immigrants had a
plaque
made of their loved one who died in Europe.

So what do you think??

All the best,

books. It would indeed be worth while to build a
datebase of this information. The creation of these
datebases would decrease the size of the "haystack"
for researchers who have little more than a name and
city of a relative.
Additional sources for these types of documents
are the American Jewish Archives and the Klau Library
of the Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati. Th
archives hold a wide range of synagogue dosuments and
the library holds a collection of bulletins. While
these holding focus on Reform congregations that are
members of the Union for Reform Judaism (formerly the
Union of American Hebrew Congregations) there is
substantial documentation of other sources as
well.(www.americanjewisgarchives.org)
Finally, it would be worthwhile to build an index
based on birth and death announcements found in local
Jewish and secular newspapers...
Alas as the moderator mentioned in the original
post, all we need are people...but Jewishgen can post
the results. Just an idea.....
