Bucharest Cemetery project! #romania

Rosanne Leeson
 

Dear All,

This is to inform you that we have made contact with a person in
Bucharest who is willing to photograph, and document the cemeteries in
Bucharest. This will be a long project, probably done in small
segments, as weather and funding permits. Right now winter storms have
buried Bucharest in snow, but our volunteer will get to the cemetery as
soon as he can. There are three Jewish cemeteries in the Bucharest area,
and so, many thousands of graves. In order to make this happen we have
set up on JewishGen-erosity Fund on JewishGen .

Please go to the JewishGen-erosity site at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=20

and choose the top of the list item, Bucharest Cemetery Project, if you
would like to donate, to help us bring this very important information
to the JOWBR website of JewishGen. We very much need your help to make
this important project a reality at last!

Thank you for all you do for the ROM-SIG and its members!

Subject: (USA) Genealogists Not Invited To Testify on SSDI at House Ways and
Means Subcommittee Hearing

Why is it so important to include the actual SS# with the record? I have
always wondered why Ancestry and Family Search were including them in the
first place. The issue of identity theft is valid, having once worked in a
business where this was rampant. Maybe I am missing something here, but the
SS# has not been of any use to me whatsoever, as a genealogist.

Can they simply continue to update the database and just exclude the SS#, or
just put the last 4 digits?

Announcing H-SIG Miskolc Jewish Cemetery Project #hungary

viviankahn@...
 

H-SIG is starting a new project that will bring to life the names of those buried in the in the Miskolc cemetery. The objective is to photograph 18th and 19th Century headstones and 20th century cemetery books and create records that will be searchable >from JewishGen's Hungary and JOWBR databases at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Hungary and http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/cemetery/

Miskolc is the third largest city in Hungary. In the 1940s it was reported to have a Jewish population of about 14,000 out of a total population of 100,000. The cemetery was started about 1792 and its size is reported to be 6 1/2 hectares or 65,000 m2. We estimate that there are approximately 16,000 18th and 19th century headstones, which will be documented by taking 10,000-12,000 photographs. The 18th and 19th century written records were lost in the Holocaust but there are about 600 pages of the 20th century cemetery records that will be photographed. A picture of the cemetery?s surface and geographic location in Miskolc can be accessed at http://binged.it/qZXHa8.
In order for this project to be a success, we need contributions to pay for the images and volunteers to transcribe the inscriptions and burial locations using the JOWBR template. A list of 600 names of 20th century deaths and cemetery locations was recently received >from Miskolc and is now available for transcription.

To make a contribution to the project go to http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/ click on Hungarian SIG in the list of Special JewishGen Projects and then make your donation by filling in the box next to Miskolc Jewish Cemetery - Burial Records and Photography. The total cost of the project is estimated at $11,000-$13,000 based on a unit cost of $1.00 for each photographic image.

To volunteer to transcribe and proofread the first batch of 600 records and then the photographs of gravestones, please contact Nolan Altman, JOWBR Coordinator at naltman@jewishgen.org or John Kovacs at j.kovacs@sbcglobal.net

Your support will be greatly appreciated.

Zet (son-in-law) #romania

soring0412@...
 

Those of you who have roots in Romania, are probably familiar with
"sin" meaning son of , used also as child of (for daughters).
Additional usages can also be found.
Browsing through records, I've found people named as zet someone, i.e
the son in law of someone.
I want to reflect on the reason to use zet (his father's in law name)
instead of using sin (his father's name).
I would rule out the case of someone who's father's identity is not known.
One option would be the case where the father's in law status was much
higher than of his father.
Another option was a person who lived with his parents before his
marriage in another town, and moved to live to his wife and her
father's town after marriage.
That option would be interesting, because it might hint that someone
who is named zet xxx , his origins are outside the town where he might
have lived for the rest of his adult life.

I welcome comments and additional inputs.

Best regards,

Sorin Goldenberg
