Doctorates in the 1860s #austria-czech

My great grandfather, Jacques Israel SCHRAMEK (1843-1903), who was born in
Lipnik nad Becvou (Leipnik), received his doctorate >from the University of
Freiburg on 14 December 1867. His thesis was on the "science of aesthetics".
Was this early for a Moravian Jew and does anyone know of any books or
articles that discuss Moravian Jews gaining doctorates in Germany and
Austria in the mid 19th century?

Please share your WWI Stories whether or not you are an IAJGS Conference registrant #warsaw #poland

Hal Bookbinder
 

Hi,

We received an enthusiastic response to our announcement that the
IAJGS Conference was collecting family stories and related pictures of
the World War I era. Some with great stories to share asked that we
open this to non-conference registrants. We have completed the updates
to the conference website to permit this!

While we want everyone to come to Salt Lake City for the largest
annual conference on Jewish genealogy, we welcome your WWI Family
stories, even if you cannot join us in SLC or LIVE! on the Internet.
To share your story and pictures, go to www.iajgs2014.org and select
the "WWI Stories" tab. It will provide you with answers to questions
you might have and with the ability to upload your story, whether or
not you are a conference registrant.

Thank you in advance for sharing your stories and so enriching our
overall understanding of that era exactly one century ago.

Hal Bookbinder, lead co-chair
34th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy

Yizkor Book Project, February 2014 #warsaw #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Although February is a notoriously short month, I was pleased to see great
progress made in a number of aspects of the Yizkor Book Project.

To begin with, I am pleased to inform you that during the last month, a
further project joined the ranks of fully completed translations. This time
we saw the culmination of the Grajewo project and I would like to thank the
coordinators, Shelly Levin and Evelyn Fine, for their caring and dedication
in leading this project through its successful completion. On the horizon,
there are a number of other projects that are close to the end and suggest
you follow coming reports for similar announcements.

February also saw the addition of 3 new Translation Funds which have been
set up to allow people interested in financially supporting the professional
translation of the following Yizkor books.

- Ostrów Mazowiecka, Poland
- Sosnove (Ludvipol), Ukraine
- Telsiai (Telz), Lithuania

If you are able to support any of these projects or any of the 75 listed
Translation funds listed here:

http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23

you would be doing something very practical and important to allow us to
make these books and the treasures they contain, available to researchers
worldwide and keep the memories of these communities alive.

Lastly, I would like to note our Yizkor Book in Print Project which recently
added a further volume to its continually growing library of English
translations of our Yizkor book projects.

- Shards of Memory: Messages >from the Lost Shtetl of Antopol, Belarus -
Translation of the Yizkor (Memorial) Book of the Jewish Community of Antopol

In addition, the following book will be available for purchase in the
nearest future:

- Yizkor (Memorial) Book of Lyubcha and Delyatichi - Translation of Lubtch
ve-Delatitch; Sefer Zikaron

As I've noted before, I quite often receive queries regarding available
books and for those of you who are interested, a full list of the published
books appears at: http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html

Now to facts and figures for February.

Re: Searching for a first name Eliokim #general

Elyakim is not the same as Eliyahu. Elyakim was the name of several
Biblical figures, including a king of Judea - see Kings II chapters
18-19; Isaiah chs. 36-37; Chronicles ch.32. (I happen to have a son
named Elyakim, as well.)

Oleshna #general

Jeff Curtis <jeff@...>
 

I am trying to discover the birth town of my great grandfather in 1859. A UK
census of 1911 records it (in smudged writing) as Oleshna (I think),
Austria. All further census records refer just to Austria. The closest I
have come is Oleschna/Dittel in the Volga Germany and Olesna, Czech listed
in Gundacker List as P244. The town would have had a Jewish population, so
that might rule out Oleschna/Dittel and I am not sure if Olesna was in
Austria at the time. If the latter, is there a state archive I can contact?
Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Jeff Curtis

National Capitol (DC) Hebrew Cemetery records #general

sjbennis@...
 

I am trying to locate the headstone, or cemetery records of my
grandmother's sister, Jennie MINK. She is buried in the National
Capitol Hebrew Cemetery. As far as I can tell, the records are kept by
several organizations.

I have already spoken to Howard Katz & Phil Berman. I was told Leonard
Goodman is knowledgeable,but he is ill. I am hoping to find the
cemetery records for my great aunt and that they might tell me if she
had a headstone and where in the cemetery it is located. I could then
hire someone to go and take a photo, so I could have it transcribed and
hopefully learn the name of her parents.

My aunt's information is
Name: Jennie MINK
Maiden name: BABUSCHKIN (or some variation)
Date of death: August 15, 1919
Age: 35
Burial: National Capitol Hebrew Cemetery
4708 Fable St.
Capitol Hts.MD 20743
Home address of Jenny Mink: 1201 6th St. SW, Washington D.C.

I have also emailed or called:
Carol Velore >from Ohev Shalom
Carole Klein >from Adas Israel
D. Goldman >from Workmen's Circle (old)
Office of Young Israel Shomre Emunah
Paul Kress >from Elisvetgrad Cemetery Assoc

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated. I live in Ohio and it
is a very large cemetery so browsing through it is not practical. I'm
at my wits end.
Thank you

Sue Bennis
