Hello Genners,

The first is in Russian, and the other four in Polish.
I would appreciate a full translation with all possible details.. names of
parents, bride and groom, ages, occupations, witnesses, dates, towns,

ViewMate translation request (tombstone) - Hebrew #general

Roxanne Richardson
 

I've posted a couple of lines of a tombstone in Hebrew for which I need
a translation. It is on ViewMate at the following address ...


http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/responselist.asp?key=34188

As noted in the description, we need to know only one word (probably the
second name of a double name), as we've figured out the rest.

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Thank you very much.

Actually they only have marriages through 1937. After that is at the
Health Department. (I asked to confirm at the Library today.)

The Library has births and deaths but not marriages beyond the Archives.

WWI casualty lists searchable, high-quality images at Upper Austrian Regional Library #hungary

Logan Kleinwaks
 

Very clear images of World War I casualty lists for Austria-Hungary
are viewable and full-text searchable on the website of the Upper
Austrian Regional Library. To search the casualty lists, enter your
search term (e.g., surname, surname and given name, surname and town)
at http://digi.landesbibliothek.at/viewer/browse/periodika.verlustliste*/-/1/CURRENTNOSORT/-/.
In the list of search results, click on a thumbnail image to show a
medium-size image with the matching text highlighted. Even larger
images can then be viewed by 1) clicking the full-screen button above
the medium-size image and then using the zoom slider at the top, or 2)
moving the grey slider above the medium-size image to the right to
zoom in. When zoomed in, an image can be clicked-and-dragged to
change the section that is visible.

The search results for these images (generated via OCR) seem to be
(much?) more accurate than those for the same lists at other sites
(e.g., Austrian National Library at
http://anno.onb.ac.at/anno-suche/#searchMode=complex&title=Verlustliste+&resultMode=list&from=1&sort=date+asc
or Kramerius Digital Library at
http://kramerius.nkp.cz/kramerius/handle/ABA001/24665809). This might
be because of the superior quality of their images.

The Upper Austrian Regional Library has not yet posted all its lists
online. They have so far posted about 40% of known lists, and are
digitizing more each day, essentially in chronological order from
earliest to latest. It remains to be seen how much their online
collection will ultimately overlap with the others in scope.

Latest Publications from Yizkor Books in Print #hungary

Donald & Sandra Hirschhorn <sdh2381@...>
 

Recently, two new titles joined the ranks of hard cover books published by
the Yizkor Books in Print Project part of Yizkor Books Project of JewishGen,
Inc.

The first is: "Brest-Litovsk - Volume II Encyclopedia of the Jewish
Diaspora" a translation of Brisk de-Lita: Encyclopedia Shel Galuyot. The
original Yiddish volume was edited by Elieser Steinman and published in
Jerusalem in 1958. The name of the town, Brest-Litovsk, indicates its link
with Lithuania. Although founded by the Slavs in 1017 and invaded by the
Mongols in 1241, it became part of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania in 1319, and
in 1569 it became the capital of the unified Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.

The town is also known as "Brisk," in Yiddish to the Jews who lived and
thrived there for six centuries. Jewish "Brisk" had an illustrious history;
the famous Brisker Yeshivah attracted scholars >from all over Europe. The
list of Rabbis of Brest includes Solomon Luria and Joel Sirkes, in earlier
periods, the Katzenellenbogens, and three generations of the Soloveitchik
dynasty in more recent times. Brest also produced Jacob Epstein the great
Talmudist at the Hebrew University, Menachem Begin, and many other major
religious, literary and political leaders. In 1923, Jews made up 60% of
Brest's population of 60,000. Brest, Belarus is located 203 mi SW of Minsk.

Written by Brest survivors and former residents >from many countries who
contributed their memories of their hometown as a record for future
generations, and as testament and loving tribute to the innocent Victims of
the Shoah, it is a must read for researchers of the town and descendants of
"Briskers."

The list price is $56.95. Available at Amazon for around $41. Also available
at Barnes & Noble and check the JewishGen website
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip/YBIP_Brest.html for further
information and non-U.S. sources.

The second title is "Grayewo Memorial (Yizkor) Book" It is a translation of
Grayeve yisker-bukh (Grayewo Memorial Book) Editor: Dr. George Gorin, New
York. Originally Published by: United Grayever Relief Committee, 1950.
Grajewo is located 114 mi NNE of Warsaw in Poland. Alternate names for the
town are: Grajewo [Polish], Grayavah [Yiddish], Graevo [Russian], Grayeve,
Grayevo.

Jews have been living in Grajewo, in the province of Bialystok, Poland since
the late 17th century. The 1765 census counted 83 Jewish people and by 1857,
the number had grown to 1,457 comprising 76% of the town's population. By
1921, the percentage of Jews had decreased to 39%.

During the Soviet occupation, between September 1939 and June 1941, Jewish
businesses were nationalized. The Nazi invasion of Grajewo on 22 June 1941
marked the beginning of the devastation and horrors thrust upon the Jewish
population. Within a few months, 1,600 to 2,000 Jews had been sent to the
transit camp at Bogosza and on to the extermination camps at Treblinka and
Auschwitz.

The list price is $49.95, available on Amazon for around $36. Again, see
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip/YBIP_Grajewo.html for further
information and non-U.S. sources.
