Dear Genners,

As Publicity Specialist for Yizkor-Books-in-Print, part of the Yizkor
Books Project of JewishGen, I am pleased to announce that we now have
several new volumes available for you. All are in hard cover and have
a similar format and size (approximately 7" x 10"). All of our books
are available through Amazon and other distributors at discounted prices.

Our latest memorial titles include works about the following towns:
Rozniatow, Ukraine, Ostrow Mazowiecka, Poland, Yampol, Ukraine, Polhajce,
Ukraine, Novogrudok, Belarus and a memoir, The Maple Tree Behind the
Barbed Wire - A Story of Survival >from the Czestochowa Ghetto.

These Yizkor books, almost all originally written in Yiddish and Hebrew
by former residents, have been beautifully translated by volunteers. We
are very grateful to all of them for their work, initiated, supervised,
and often prepared by Joel Alpert our amazing Project Coordinator.

Watch for word on the arrival of three other titles: Jaslo, Poland,
Telekhan, Belarus and Ciechanow, Poland all coming shortly.

For further information on all the books published through our project

Look up in a Building in Petach Tikva #general

M. Ronn
 

I recently found out that in 1926 a plaque honoring my great-grandparents
was put up in an old building in the center of Petach Tikva. I wanted to
know if anyone would be so kind as to go there to see if it is still
standing and take a photograph of it.

Database of German Jewish Businesses in Berlin 1930-1945 and Historian's Book on This Issue. #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

In the May 20th issue of the Tablet Magazine there is a story on the pre
WWII Jewish businesses in Berlin. According to the article there were once
50,000 Jewish businesses. Researcher and educator at the House of the
Wannsee Conference, historian Christoph Kreutzmuller wrote a book (in
German), Final Sale: The End of Jewish Owned Businesses in Nazi Berlin,
There is also an online database of thousands of companies that used to
exist in Berlin between 1930-1945.

The database may be accessed at:
http://www2.hu-berlin.de/djgb/www/find
It is searchable, free and written in German.

New York Genealogy Class will begin June 1 #lithuania

Phyllis Kramer
 

So many of our immigrant ancestors lived in New York City -- they
started on the Lower East Side and upgraded to the Bronx and Brooklyn;
their children moved to Queens, Westchester, Long Island and New Jersey.

Sure we have the census >from Ancestry and vital records from
ItalianGen but this class will focus on the more esoteric documents
our ancestors generated -- naturalization, probate, landsmanshaften,
voters registration, newspapers, court cases -- and we will note which
documents will only be found on-site at various archives. We include
suggestions on where to research, where to wander and how to get
there. Students will have the opportunity to select a branch to
research and receive suggestions >from the instructor.

This 4 week Intermediate level genealogy course has 7 text lessons you
can download; there are no specific times for the course; students
interact with the instructor though a 24/7 FORUM, in a query and
answer format. To see a short video on how our courses work, go to
www.jewishgen.org/education and view the video at the very bottom of
the page. Note: these are intermediate genealogy topics and if you
wish to pursue another U.S. city, the instructor will be happy to work
with you.

Requirements: Students must feel comfortable browsing the web and
downloading files, have 5-10 hours available each week and should
select a family where census and vital records are already documented.
Tuition is $100 (there are no waivers for this course); registration
is open; go to www.JewishGen.org/education and click on the enrollment
link. For questions, please email JewishGen-Education@lyris.JewishGen.org

ViewMate photograph - Family portrait, Zagare late 1920s #lithuania

Segal, Aron <Aron.Segal@...>
 

I have posted in ViewMate a photograph taken in Zagare, Lithuania in the
mid-late 1920s.

My aunt, Malka SEGAL (1905-1984)is in the back row, second >from left.

She was the daughter of Moisey SEGAL and Leya (nee ZUSMAN) and the elder
sister of Aiyzik and my father, Hirsh (Girsh) SEGAL.

I do not know any of the other people in the photograph but I am assuming
that they are family members but not her parents or her two brothers.

Does anyone recognise anyone else in the photograph?

It's located on ViewMate at the following address:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM27420

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Warm regards,
