JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Bessarabia / Moldova Cemetery projects #general

Dear researchers,

I would like to let you know what is going on with our multiple (24!)
Cemetery projects:

- Rybnitsa New Jewish Cemetery - completed - you can read about it at the
Bessarabia SIG website / Jewish Cemeteries section
- Tiraspol Dalnee Cemetery - completed, see information at Bessarabia SIG
website / Jewish Cemeteries section

- Brichani Jewish Cemetery. Finally we have a very good Hebrew translator,
who knows well the tombstone writings, and will finish first reading in
November, 15, and in parallel a second reading is checking his work.
Hopefully the project will be done by the end of the year.
-Lipkani Jewish Cemetery. As Bricheni inscriptions, it is very hard to
translate the writings. Person who is going to finish Brichani will work
after that on this project.

- Chinisheutsy, very small Jewish Cemetery, will be ready in September, 2015
- Skuleni, there is a large monument build not long time ago for the father
of Skulyaner Rebbe who was buried at that cemetery, and also several other
family members. Also a number of fragments of monuments were built in
foundation of the large monument. Will be submitted to JOWBR in the fall of
2015

- Rybnitsa Old Jewish Cemetery, half of the photos are received (about 460).
Need someone to translate or better to take the whole project (2 readings,
prepare for JOWBR).

- Soroki Jewish Cemetery, New Section, hopefully finish this project in
September, 2015
- Soroki Jewish Cemetery, Old Section. Photos are done, and it will be
worked after the Soroki New Cemetery is completed.

- Kishinev Jewish Cemetery, project started, more photos will come in late
fall, probably all photos will be done in the spring of 2016

-Leovo Jewish Cemetery. Half of the photos are done. The rest be done in
late fall. A person organizes a group of people to do translation.
- Camenca (Kamenca) - the photos are done, and the first reading is done.
Need someone with good Russian and Hebrew to check every record.

- Dubossary Jewish Cemetery, Old Section - there are only about 30 photos...
cannot get the rest done yet.
- Rashkov Jewish Cemetery (Transnistria) - small part of the cemetery
photographed. We need some money to do the whole cemetery. If anyone is
interested, please email me.

- Rezina New Jewish Cemetery - first reading is done. Need someone to do
the "second" reading.
- Rezina Old Jewish Cemetery - in a process of translation.

- Ungheni Jewish Cemetery. The photos were received, and now waiting for
someone index them.

- Grigoriopol Jewish Cemetery. In process of translation.

- Izmail Jewish Cemetery. Second reading is in progress, hopefully complete
this in a months.

-Bessarabeska Jewish Cemetery. Photos will be in taken in September.

- Markuleshti Jewish Cemetery. Photos should be taken this fall...

- Faleshti Jewish Cemetery. Photos should be taken this fall.

- Hincheshti (Gancheshti) Jewish Cemetery. Photograph will be in taken this
fall.

- Ataki Jewish Cemetery. Photographer will go this fall to photograph the
tombstones.

I want to thank all people who are translating the inscriptions of the
tombstones. This is our duty to do these projects as best as we can and
also as quick as we can... the cemeteries are disappearing.

Also many thanks to an army of JewishGenners who are responding on my
requests at ViewMate! You are terrific. All of you who helped to decipher
these writings are included into the Cemetery Reports - you can see many of
them at the Bessarabia SIG Website. I will continue to add inscriptions to
ViewMate.

If you know Russian and Hebrew or even one of the languages and would like
to participate in one of these projects please let me know.

Also, if anyone wants the whole set of records for a cemetery, that can be
arranged for a donation of $100 to Bessarabia-Moldova Cemetery project.

Finally, if you know of a cemetery and it is not yet on our list yet, and
you know that the cemetery exists, we would need about 30% of total cost
collected before starting the project. Of course the cost depends on the
number of tombstones, distance, etc. This way were organized many of the
cemetery projects above!! Let me know if interested.

All the best,

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen FSI Updated Jewish Vital Records Index Published! #general

Vivian Kahn
 

I am very excited to announce that close to 15,000 additional vital
records have been added to the Hungarian Jewish Vital Records at
FamilySearch.org. This increases the total number of records in this
collection by almost 15,000 to a total of 26,447. You can access the
database at https://familysearch.org/search/collection/1787825

The records have been indexed by JewishGen H-SIG volunteers >from films
at the Hungarian State Archives in Budapest and county archives. The
latest batch includes additional records >from Pest-Pilis and Szabolcs,
many of which are not yet included in the JewishGen Hungary Database.
It's taking some effort to reformat the FSI spreadsheets but
once this is completed, the new records will be added to the JewishGen
Hungary database as well.

This effort wouldn't have been possible without the
participation of a number of H-SIGrs as well as some folks who learned
about our project on the FamilySearch website. In particular, I want to
single out Judy Peterson, Henry Wellisch, Pat Shaw, Imre Grosz, and
Julie Lockwood for special thanks and recognition.

This project wouldn't exist at all without the efforts and
inspiration of Sam Schleman, the former H-SIG Vital Records Coordinator,
who we sadly lost earlier this year. Sam started the project, which was
the first and, I believe, still the only Jewish partner project with
FamilySearch as a way to continue the indexing of records in the Family
Research Library collection. Instead of having to obtain images for use
at the Family Research Library, FSI sends images to volunteers who use
special software to enter information that is submitted as each batch of
records is completed. Although the process is different >from the one
that most JewishGen volunteers have used, I and others have found the
format relatively easy to use.

Please contact me off-list if you'd like to learn more about how
this works.

progress.

If you have an ***urgent*** search need that cannot be resolved any other
way, please use our "Contact Us" link and we will attempt to resolve your

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen GALLER surname originally from Pomerania area in Poland #general

Angelina Bowen <angiebowen0423@...>
 

Hello, I am currently in Warsaw, Poland. I am driving to
Darlowo and Gdansk in the next few days. I am trying to find
relatives. My father's great great grandfather was Daniel
Gottlieb GALLER. His father was Hermann Galler. Daniel
married Wilhelmina. We recently discovered that we have
Jewish ancestry. We always thought we were Germans, but now
know that we are German Jews. Some of our relatives died at
Auschwitz. I would very much like to connect with family here
in Poland. I am also going to Potsdam in Germany, but I
believe my true relatives live in the area of Pomerania. At
least they did in the 1800's before coming to the U.S. Please
help me if you have any information. Thank you.

Private document translation - German #general

Sharon Gill
 

My great aunt, who was Czech, married a non-jewish Austrian.
Her husband died in 1936.

In 1938 she registered to comply with the Verordnung über die
Anmeldung des Vermögens von Juden. I have the file but really
need to ask if anyone can translate the hand written parts -
8 or 9 lines

I would prefer this document not to be published via Viewmate
as I do not know what is written and feel it may be quite
personal. Could anybody please help? I have the document
scanned ready to send

Please contact me on sharon_gill@... if you can assist

Many thanks in advance
