Yizkor Books #YizkorBooks Yizkor Book Project, December 2010 #yizkorbooks

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

The JewishGen "elders" tell me that there has never been such a record month
in the Yizkor Book Project with a total of 57 new entries, new books and
updates during December. The year 2010, in fact, was an all-round record
year compared to previous years. More than four times as many new entries
added, twice as many new books added and almost twice as many updates were
carried out in comparison with 2009!

Now, as I always stress, there are many, many people behind these figures
and this month I would like to salute a small group of such people. They are
the remarkable volunteer team of Shaul Yannai, Shimon Joffe & Barry Mann who
are working their way through Pinkas Lita (Encyclopedia of Jewish
Communities in Lithuania) to translate all the community entries appearing
there. Just this month, we put up translations 28 of the entries about the
Lithuanian communities that were devastated in the Holocaust and the final
goal of this team is to completely translate all the entries within it. This
is clearly a mammoth task and I salute this team's dedication and
persistence. It should also be noted that they are also working closely
with the original editors of this encyclopedia, Dov Levin and Josef Rosin,
to assure that the translations and the information they contain, are as
true as possible to the original - awarding them a further salute.

I would like to inform you about something else new that was added this past
month to the Yizkor Book Project. Thanks to the diligent and time consuming
research work of one volunteer, Paul Levit, a new feature has been added to
the Yizkor Book database at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/database.html
A hyperlink has been added to each Yizkor Book's entry which points to the
OCLC (Online Computer Library Center) website at www.worldcat.org. Since the
WorldCat website contains full bibliographic information for each book,
along with links to thousands of libraries catalogs worldwide. This linkage
will supplement the database's current "Libraries" table, thus allowing
JewishGen users to locate Yizkor Books more easily, wherever they may be.
My thanks go out to Warren Blatt for the concept behind this and to
Michael Tobias for implementing this feature in the database.

December also has seen the quarterly update of our necrology database with
4,330 new entries >from 10 books. The entries are painstakingly prepared by
Max Heffler and Michael Tobias is behind the uploading of the data to the
database. Thanks to both these gentlemen for allowing researchers access to
this invaluable data source at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/

Note that the following community necrologies were added this quarter to the
database:

- Ratno, Ukraine 168
- Frampol, Poland 373
- Kossovo, Belarus 163
- Stolin, Belarus 601

- Sandomierz, Poland 433

Yizkor Book Project, December 2010 #yizkorbooks

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

The JewishGen "elders" tell me that there has never been such a record month
in the Yizkor Book Project with a total of 57 new entries, new books and
updates during December. The year 2010, in fact, was an all-round record
year compared to previous years. More than four times as many new entries
added, twice as many new books added and almost twice as many updates were
carried out in comparison with 2009!

Now, as I always stress, there are many, many people behind these figures
and this month I would like to salute a small group of such people. They are
the remarkable volunteer team of Shaul Yannai, Shimon Joffe & Barry Mann who
are working their way through Pinkas Lita (Encyclopedia of Jewish
Communities in Lithuania) to translate all the community entries appearing
there. Just this month, we put up translations 28 of the entries about the
Lithuanian communities that were devastated in the Holocaust and the final
goal of this team is to completely translate all the entries within it. This
is clearly a mammoth task and I salute this team's dedication and
persistence. It should also be noted that they are also working closely
with the original editors of this encyclopedia, Dov Levin and Josef Rosin,
to assure that the translations and the information they contain, are as
true as possible to the original - awarding them a further salute.

I would like to inform you about something else new that was added this past
month to the Yizkor Book Project. Thanks to the diligent and time consuming
research work of one volunteer, Paul Levit, a new feature has been added to
the Yizkor Book database at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/database.html
A hyperlink has been added to each Yizkor Book's entry which points to the
OCLC (Online Computer Library Center) website at www.worldcat.org. Since the
WorldCat website contains full bibliographic information for each book,
along with links to thousands of libraries catalogs worldwide. This linkage
will supplement the database's current "Libraries" table, thus allowing
JewishGen users to locate Yizkor Books more easily, wherever they may be.
My thanks go out to Warren Blatt for the concept behind this and to
Michael Tobias for implementing this feature in the database.

December also has seen the quarterly update of our necrology database with
4,330 new entries >from 10 books. The entries are painstakingly prepared by
Max Heffler and Michael Tobias is behind the uploading of the data to the
database. Thanks to both these gentlemen for allowing researchers access to
this invaluable data source at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/

Note that the following community necrologies were added this quarter to the
database:

- Ratno, Ukraine 168
- Frampol, Poland 373
- Kossovo, Belarus 163
- Stolin, Belarus 601
- Bol'shoy Zhëlutsk, Ukraine 81
- Sandomierz, Poland 433
- Novoseltsy, Ukraine 1426
- Melnitsa, Ukraine 781
- Pogost-Zagorodskiy, Belarus 235

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

The JewishGen "elders" tell me that there has never been such a record month
in the Yizkor Book Project with a total of 57 new entries, new books and
updates during December. The year 2010, in fact, was an all-round record
year compared to previous years. More than four times as many new entries
added, twice as many new books added and almost twice as many updates were
carried out in comparison with 2009!

Now, as I always stress, there are many, many people behind these figures
and this month I would like to salute a small group of such people. They are
the remarkable volunteer team of Shaul Yannai, Shimon Joffe & Barry Mann who
are working their way through Pinkas Lita (Encyclopedia of Jewish
Communities in Lithuania) to translate all the community entries appearing
there. Just this month, we put up translations 28 of the entries about the
Lithuanian communities that were devastated in the Holocaust and the final
goal of this team is to completely translate all the entries within it. This
is clearly a mammoth task and I salute this team's dedication and
persistence. It should also be noted that they are also working closely
with the original editors of this encyclopedia, Dov Levin and Josef Rosin,
to assure that the translations and the information they contain, are as
true as possible to the original - awarding them a further salute.

I would like to inform you about something else new that was added this past
month to the Yizkor Book Project. Thanks to the diligent and time consuming
research work of one volunteer, Paul Levit, a new feature has been added to
the Yizkor Book database at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/database.html A
hyperlink has been added to each Yizkor Book's entry which points to the
OCLC (Online Computer Library Center) website at www.worldcat.org. Since the
WorldCat website contains full bibliographic information for each book,
along with links to thousands of libraries catalogs worldwide. This linkage
will supplement the database's current "Libraries" table, thus allowing
JewishGen users to locate Yizkor Books more easily, wherever they may be. My
thanks also go out to Warren Blatt for the concept behind this and to
Michael Tobias for implementing this feature in the database.

December also has seen the quarterly update of our necrology database with
4,330 new entries >from 10 books. The entries are painstakingly prepared by
Max Heffler and Michael Tobias is behind the uploading of the data to the
database. Thanks to both these gentlemen for allowing researchers access to
this invaluable data source at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/

Note that the following community necrologies were added this quarter to the
database:

- Ratno, Ukraine 168
- Frampol, Poland 373
- Kossovo, Belarus 163
- Stolin, Belarus 601
- Bol'shoy Zhëlutsk, Ukraine 81
- Sandomierz, Poland 433

updates during December. The year 2010, in fact, was an all-round record
year compared to previous years. More than four times as many new entries
added, twice as many new books added and almost twice as many updates were
carried out in comparison with 2009!

Now, as I always stress, there are many, many people behind these figures
and this month I would like to salute a small group of such people. They are
the remarkable volunteer team of Shaul Yannai, Shimon Joffe & Barry Mann who
are working their way through Pinkas Lita (Encyclopedia of Jewish
Communities in Lithuania) to translate all the community entries appearing
there. Just this month, we put up translations 28 of the entries about the
Lithuanian communities that were devastated in the Holocaust and the final
goal of this team is to completely translate all the entries within it. This
is clearly a mammoth task and I salute this team's dedication and
persistence. It should also be noted that they are also working closely
with the original editors of this encyclopedia, Dov Levin and Josef Rosin,
to assure that the translations and the information they contain, are as
true as possible to the original - awarding them a further salute.

I would like to inform you about something else new that was added this past
month to the Yizkor Book Project. Thanks to the diligent and time consuming
research work of one volunteer, Paul Levit, a new feature has been added to
the Yizkor Book database at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/database.html A
hyperlink has been added to each Yizkor Book's entry which points to the
OCLC (Online Computer Library Center) website at www.worldcat.org. Since the
WorldCat website contains full bibliographic information for each book,
along with links to thousands of libraries catalogs worldwide. This linkage
will supplement the database's current "Libraries" table, thus allowing
JewishGen users to locate Yizkor Books more easily, wherever they may be. My
thanks also go out to Warren Blatt for the concept behind this and to
Michael Tobias for implementing this feature in the database.

December also has seen the quarterly update of our necrology database with
4,330 new entries >from 10 books. The entries are painstakingly prepared by
Max Heffler and Michael Tobias is behind the uploading of the data to the
database. Thanks to both these gentlemen for allowing researchers access to
this invaluable data source at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/

Note that the following community necrologies were added this quarter to the
database:

- Ratno, Ukraine 168
- Frampol, Poland 373
- Kossovo, Belarus 163
- Stolin, Belarus 601

DNA Research #DNA Yizkor Book Project, December 2010 #dna

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

The JewishGen "elders" tell me that there has never been such a record month
in the Yizkor Book Project with a total of 57 new entries, new books and
updates during December. The year 2010, in fact, was an all-round record
year compared to previous years. More than four times as many new entries
added, twice as many new books added and almost twice as many updates were
carried out in comparison with 2009!

Now, as I always stress, there are many, many people behind these figures
and this month I would like to salute a small group of such people. They are
the remarkable volunteer team of Shaul Yannai, Shimon Joffe & Barry Mann who
are working their way through Pinkas Lita (Encyclopedia of Jewish
Communities in Lithuania) to translate all the community entries appearing
there. Just this month, we put up translations 28 of the entries about the
Lithuanian communities that were devastated in the Holocaust and the final
goal of this team is to completely translate all the entries within it. This
is clearly a mammoth task and I salute this team's dedication and
persistence. It should also be noted that they are also working closely
with the original editors of this encyclopedia, Dov Levin and Josef Rosin,
to assure that the translations and the information they contain, are as
true as possible to the original - awarding them a further salute.

I would like to inform you about something else new that was added this past
month to the Yizkor Book Project. Thanks to the diligent and time consuming
research work of one volunteer, Paul Levit, a new feature has been added to
the Yizkor Book database at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/database.html A
hyperlink has been added to each Yizkor Book's entry which points to the
OCLC (Online Computer Library Center) website at www.worldcat.org. Since the
WorldCat website contains full bibliographic information for each book,
along with links to thousands of libraries catalogs worldwide. This linkage
will supplement the database's current "Libraries" table, thus allowing
JewishGen users to locate Yizkor Books more easily, wherever they may be. My
thanks also go out to Warren Blatt for the concept behind this and to
Michael Tobias for implementing this feature in the database.

December also has seen the quarterly update of our necrology database with
4,330 new entries >from 10 books. The entries are painstakingly prepared by
Max Heffler and Michael Tobias is behind the uploading of the data to the
database. Thanks to both these gentlemen for allowing researchers access to
this invaluable data source at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/

Note that the following community necrologies were added this quarter to the
database:

- Ratno, Ukraine 168
- Frampol, Poland 373
- Kossovo, Belarus 163
- Stolin, Belarus 601
- Bol'shoy Zhëlutsk, Ukraine 81
- Sandomierz, Poland 433
- Novoseltsy, Ukraine 1426
- Melnitsa, Ukraine 781
- Pogost-Zagorodskiy, Belarus 235
- Majdan, Ukraine 69

Now to the December figures. During this last month we have added these 5
new projects:

- Gusyatin, Ukraine (Two communities: Husiatyn and Kopyczynce)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Gusyatin1/Gusyatin1.html

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Viewmate deciphering names on passenger lists #general

Jane Pearson <doumajk@...>
 

I have three images of parts of passenger lists naming family left behind
or going to join that are difficult for me to read and would appreciate any
suggestions of the names of these Schnapp family members.
(One image seems not to have been posted yet.)

Identifying a photo from Karlsbad (26 September 1928) #general

lehrer
 

Dear fellow genealogists,

I did find an old photo postcards in my grandmother's album on which
my paternal grandfather Bruno/Berish Lehrer can be seen together with
his family (he is the boy holding the cup on the right side of the
photo). The lady with her right hand on his shoulder is possibly my
grandfather's paternal grandmother Etti Lehrer- Kalech.

I did perform a search on Google and there are two Karlsbad's, one in
Germany and the other in the Czech-Republic. (My grandfather lived at
that time in Dresden, the Karlsbad in the Czech-Republic is closer
then the German Karlsbad.)

The date on the photo states 26 September 1928 which was 12 Tishrei (2
days after yom kippur and shortly before Sukkos).

Some questions I do have are:
* Can someone help me identify the place? Was the photo taken in front
of a shul? It definitely looks to be in a Jewish area.
* Can someone tell me more about the photographer? His name apparently
was Jos. Meisl.
* Can someone tell me why we can see quite a few people on the photo
holding a cup?
* Is there someone who can identify other people on the photo besides
my grandfather and his grandmother?

The photo is on viewmate:
http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/viewmateview.asp?key=17627

Hopefully someone can help me to shed a light on the photo.

Warm Regards,

interested if parents are named and residence. Thanks very much.

Bob shares a very interesting link to newspapers.

The link Bob provided is a great entry point to bookmark -- you can also go
to main Google page click news, type your search and then when the results
come up on the left you will find a link for "Archives." You can also use
the menu on the left to specify a date or date range.

A few other words of caution/lessons I have learned working on this site
for months now. The search function is very weak on this site. Unfortunately
Google wrapped the Archives into their overall news section a while back. In
doing so they dramatically reduced the effectiveness of the search --
something I have been writing them about and gotten assurances they will
improve. Searching individual newspapers does not always work and a lot of
newspaper they have in the collection do not come up in the search results.
For example they have a Syndey, Australia newspaper which I was getting
1940s articles before they reworked the Archives and now I don't always get
them in a search.

Unfortunately the wild card search and using "not" does not seem to work.

The site incorporates Proquest and other paid per view newspapers. I have
found the Google site works as an index and then you can take that
information to other sites to get the articles out of these pay per view
newspapers. For example many public libraries provide their patrons access to
Proquest and its historical newspapers.

For the non-USA readers of this list -- your local Google's also have
newspaper links the same as the USA version. This might be a tip for searching
the Australian newspapers for example.

I have also found a lot of articles by simply going to the newspaper I
want, selecting the dates and paging through on screen. Its a slow method but
I have been rewarded with a lot of things that do not show in the searches.

Another big problem for historians/researchers is Google did not provide a
print function. I have been getting around this by using the print screen
function on my computer which lets you capture a screen image and paste it
into another program like a word processor or image program. You then need
to do cropping, etc. but I find it works if you want to keep a record or
to print the articles. (I would love to hear a better printing solution if
someone knows one.)

Finally it is not newspapers but also on Google they have a link called
"books" which incorporates hundreds of magazines. Most are only citations
but you can switch between the newspapers and books by using the drop down
menu at the top of the page and use the same search for both.

Happy researching!

Researching Polish genealogy? #lithuania

Jules Levin
 

The Kaunas records have yielded many individuals with the family name I
am researching: Beregovski, going back to the end of the 18th C. The
variant Bregovski seems to be older, and in a few cases is actually
mentioned as an alternate spelling for the same individual. Since this
is a rare Jewish surname, I have been googling the Polish Brzegowski,
and I found several Americans on Facebook, as well as 60 individuals in
Poland with that name, none of whom are presumably Jewish. It then
occurred to me that the Jews with this surname could have lived/worked
on an estate in Congress Poland whose owner had this name. But the
Polish page I found for Brzegowski shows only a map of modern Poland,
with this name only in central and especially southern Poland. My
question is: are there Polish genealogical lists that would have info
on 18C. Polish estates and their names? How else can I research the
(obviously) non-Jewish origins of this name? And are there estate
records that list the Jews employed there?
