This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

Excommunication is a term most frequently heard in the context of
Catholic excommunication, but it also exists in Jewish tradition,
known in the Torah as "herem," This week's excerpt is a short one
from the Yizkor book of Wyzszkow, a town about 30 miles northeast
of Warsaw. (In 1897, it had a Jewish population of 3,200 in 1897
and in 1921, shortly before the event described in this excerpt,
about 4,400). In his account titled "The Excommunication (der
kheyrem)", Borukh Yismakh/Ismaj describes such an event and how it
shook and divided the community.

Harvey Krueger, Z"L #ciechanow #poland

Groll, Avraham
 

The JewishGen family expresses its deepest sorrow over the passing
of Harvey Krueger, Z"l.

While achieving great personal and professional accomplishment, Mr.
Krueger devoted himself to supporting the broader Jewish community,
and he was a particularly loyal and generous friend to JewishGen.

In addition to his consistent financial support, it was due to his
direction that JewishGen became affiliated with the Museum of Jewish
Heritage in the early 2000's - a move that literally saved JewishGen
at the time. He would then go on to serve as the Chairman of the
JewishGen Board of Governors and continually made himself available
to be of help in a myriad of ways.

We extend heartfelt condolences to his children, siblings, and
extended family. May they be comforted among the mourners of Zion and
Jerusalem.

Upcoming Ukraine SIG Document acquisitions part 2 of 3 #general

Janette Silverman
 

Ukraine SIG has the opportunity to acquire copies of 41,057 pages of
documents >from various archives in Ukraine for the purpose of
translation and indexing. In order to do this, we need to raise $8,300.
If you would like to make a donation lease do to to the Ukraine SIG
digital documents acquisition and translation project - you can get
there through the JewishGen or Ukraine SIG websites, under the donate
tab. What follows is a list of the towns and types of documents we will
be acquiring. Because the list is so long, I am sending this in 3 parts
over 3 days. This is the second part, E-O.

Once we obtain the documents they will still need to be translated and
indexed. Once that is done, the information will be searchable through
the JewishGen databases. Based on our agreements with the resources
from whom we acquire the copies, Ukraine SIG only makes the copies
available to the translators. Anyone wanting a copy of the record will
need to get it >from the archive that holds the originals.

The list that follows includes the towns, years covered and the types of
documents.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Upcoming Ukraine SIG Document acquisitions part 2 of 3 #general

Janette Silverman
 

Ukraine SIG has the opportunity to acquire copies of 41,057 pages of
documents >from various archives in Ukraine for the purpose of
translation and indexing. In order to do this, we need to raise $8,300.
If you would like to make a donation lease do to to the Ukraine SIG
digital documents acquisition and translation project - you can get
there through the JewishGen or Ukraine SIG websites, under the donate
tab. What follows is a list of the towns and types of documents we will
be acquiring. Because the list is so long, I am sending this in 3 parts
over 3 days. This is the second part, E-O.

Once we obtain the documents they will still need to be translated and
indexed. Once that is done, the information will be searchable through
the JewishGen databases. Based on our agreements with the resources
from whom we acquire the copies, Ukraine SIG only makes the copies
available to the translators. Anyone wanting a copy of the record will
need to get it >from the archive that holds the originals.

The list that follows includes the towns, years covered and the types of
documents.

The BRANSPIZ surname - Records #galicia

Gavriel Yadgarov <gabi.rule@...>
 

Hello!

I'm in search after any records of: Yakov Branspiz, Adolf Branspiz and
Yuri Branspiz.

It's unknown when and where Yakov Branspiz was born. The
assumptions are the German speaking part of Galician Ukraine, Austria
or Germany.

His son, Adolf Branspiz, was born in 1915, probably in Galician Ukraine,
although I'm not sure, since Adolf is a German/Austrian first name which
isn't very popular in Ukraine. Adolf was a physician (he studied in an
Odessa medical school), and he fought against the Nazis in WW2 in
Ukraine and even participated in Berlin occupation at the end of the
war. He eventually died a natural death in Ukraine in the early 80s.
He was a very well known veteran in Ukraine at the time, especially
among other Jews, and I even found once a biography paragraph (in
a WW2 Jewish-veteran book of Ukraine) about him, that stated that
he was born in Ukraine in a city called Lugansk. Still, no records
were found, and his place of born is still a mystery. He could easily
have changed the country of his birth, for example in order to enter
the army (he was a patriot), to escape political stigmas, etc.

Adolf's son, Yuri Branspiz, was born in the 50s, also probably in
Lugansk, Ukraine. He died several years ago a natural death in the
same city. He was a well known Physics researcher, and held a
professor position in several universities across Ukraine. He also
wasn't sure about his origins and his place of birth, throughout his
life. He has never found his birth certificate (he tried), and never met
his biological mother.

All of them spoke, wrote and read fluently Yiddish *and* German as
their first (mother-tongue) languages until the last days of their lives.
Also, they looked very German (as opposed to the local Ukrainians).
They all were Ashkenazi Jews.

How can we find any records about them? Specifically birth
certificates, passports, driving licenses, military records or other
records?

JewishGen's and GesherGalicia's databases haven't shown any
relevant records. I literally searched *every* country (including *all*
the records >from jri-poland, Litvaksig, etc.) in websites' databases,
and I found nothing. I used "sounds like", "phonetically like" and so
on, and screened through a very large number of results.

Also, Lugansk (the Ukrainian city in which Adolf and Yuri probably
were born), which is where the corresponding archives are located,
has been a war zone for several years now - so searching physically
the archives isn't even possible (I hope the archives aren't damaged
by now due to all the bombings).

If all the databases in GesherGalicia and JewishGen websites
(including jri-poland, litvaksig, etc.) don't have matching records for
these people, is there any other practical way of finding any type of
records through the internet about these people? Or are these
websites the last stop?

P.S. I also noticed that this family name is *extremely rare*.
Specifically the Branspiz spelling is rare, even in terms of the number
of results in the databases. "Sounds like" and "Phonetically like"
searches usually bring other spellings that are more common, for
example Bratspiz, Bratspis, etc. But Branspiz is a family name on its
own and I'm sure it's spelled this way in other languages too,
because I have some documents written in Russian (mainly
biographies written by these people about themselves) and they
spelled it like that (not once).

Thanks for your time!

Best Regards to everyone,

I was wondering if anyone was in touch with Leo Finegold of San Diego.
He put up the site http://www.germanjewishsoldiers.com/introduction.php

I wanted to see if he can be contacted to remedy it.
