I do not believe they have them all -- Washington is one of the larger
cemeteries in the area with for our five or six fields as I recall. It
is always worth checking all the various online databases including
JewishGen's JOWBR, Find A Gave, etc. to see if the stone or its details
might be in one of these databases. The paid one here has some
incorrect labeling because I found a stone there for someone I was
searching but the cemetery had no record of the person and the photo
showed a wall that was not part of the landscape of the identified
cemetery.

Yizkor Book Project, February 2016 #romania

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

If I do say myself, I think we at the Yizkor Book Project kind of
exaggerated in the over February, leap year or not. As you'll certainly
see by some of the details below, lots and lots happened over this past
month.

For a start, a further two new books were added to the exponentially
growing list of Yizkor Books published by the Yizkor Books in Print
Project and they are:

- Siedlce, Poland "The Jews in Siedlce -- 1850-1945" by Edward Kopowka
- Krosno, Poland "Krosno by the Wislok River" by William Leibner

I would like to send out a warm thank you to all those people involved
in seeing these books become a reality. Please see the link at the end
of this report for details of the purchase of these particular books or
any other of the books we have available.

Another notable addition in February was part of a Polish translation
of the Hebrew section >from the Sokolka, Poland Yizkor book, translated
and donated by Waldemar Daszuta. Our main goal in the YB Project is to
make the important information the Yizkor books contain available to a
wide-as-possible audience and providing the text in Polish is definitely
part of striving for this goal and so we do thank Waldemar for his
voluntary translation of the text.

Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to send a special thank
you to Susan Dressler, Genia Hollander & Helen Rosenstein Wolf. The bulk
of the Yizkor books are written in either Hebrew or Yiddish but, here
and there, they do contain some English sections and these three
dedicated volunteers have done an amazing job of typing up many of these
sections and this allowing us to display them online. For the effort and
time they put into this, they do deserve our deep appreciation.

And now for the changes and additions that were carried out in the Yizkor

Research Podolia #ukraine

Charlie Newman <cnewman@...>
 

Hello all,

I am researching the last name SHATKIN and have traced the name back to
locations in the Province of Podolia in Ukraine. Locations such as
Vinnitsa, Volkovintsy, Komarovtsy. Other family name spellings may include
but are not limited to SCHATKIN or SHADKHIN. I am specifically looking for
relatives of a Louis Shatkin (born about 1800) and what archives in Ukraine
may be searchable to discover that information. I do have extensive data of
his descendants who began arriving in the USA in 1902 via Ellis Island and
settled in Providence, R.I.

Any information will be helpful.

Shalom,

If I do say myself, I think we at the Yizkor Book Project kind of
exaggerated in the over February, leap year or not. As you'll certainly
see by some of the details below, lots and lots happened over this past
month.

For a start, a further two new books were added to the exponentially
growing list of Yizkor Books published by the Yizkor Books in Print
Project and they are:

- Siedlce, Poland "The Jews in Siedlce -- 1850-1945" by Edward Kopowka
- Krosno, Poland "Krosno by the Wislok River" by William Leibner

I would like to send out a warm thank you to all those people involved
in seeing these books become a reality. Please see the link at the end
of this report for details of the purchase of these particular books or
any other of the books we have available.

Another notable addition in February was part of a Polish translation
of the Hebrew section >from the Sokolka, Poland Yizkor book, translated
and donated by Waldemar Daszuta. Our main goal in the YB Project is to
make the important information the Yizkor books contain available to a
wide-as-possible audience and providing the text in Polish is definitely
part of striving for this goal and so we do thank Waldemar for his
voluntary translation of the text.

Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to send a special thank

French Jewish naming patterns for the HALPHEN family of Metz #france

Alison Greengard
 

Hi,
I am hoping someone can tell me about French Jewish naming patterns.
For five generations of my husband's HALPHEN family of Metz,
it appears that sons were named for one of the given names of their
father. They were not born after their father's deaths.
These generations were born >from 1592 to 1710 as follow (oldest to youngest).

Abraham Ephraim Halphen dit le Jeune
Baruch Juda Hatsron Abraham Halphen
Ephraim Gumprich Baruch Halphen
Moise Ephraim Halphen
Salomon Moise dit Isaac Halphen

This naming pattern does not seem to follow any Jewish naming patterns
of which I am aware. The only thing I can think of is that the names
for their fathers were added after the deaths of the fathers.

Thank you.

HALPHEN (Metz, France)
ARON (Phalsbourg, France)

GREENGARD (Virbalis, Lithuania)

GLAZ (Varniai, Lithuania)

Yizkor Book Project, February 2016 #france

Shalom,

If I do say myself, I think we at the Yizkor Book Project kind of
exaggerated in the over February, leap year or not. As you'll certainly
see by some of the details below, lots and lots happened over this past
month.

For a start, a further two new books were added to the exponentially
growing list of Yizkor Books published by the Yizkor Books in Print
Project and they are:

- Siedlce, Poland "The Jews in Siedlce -- 1850-1945" by Edward Kopowka
- Krosno, Poland "Krosno by the Wislok River" by William Leibner

I would like to send out a warm thank you to all those people involved
in seeing these books become a reality. Please see the link at the end
of this report for details of the purchase of these particular books or
any other of the books we have available.

Another notable addition in February was part of a Polish translation
of the Hebrew section >from the Sokolka, Poland Yizkor book, translated
and donated by Waldemar Daszuta. Our main goal in the YB Project is to
make the important information the Yizkor books contain available to a
wide-as-possible audience and providing the text in Polish is definitely
part of striving for this goal and so we do thank Waldemar for his
voluntary translation of the text.

Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to send a special thank
you to Susan Dressler, Genia Hollander & Helen Rosenstein Wolf. The bulk
of the Yizkor books are written in either Hebrew or Yiddish but, here
and there, they do contain some English sections and these three
dedicated volunteers have done an amazing job of typing up many of these
sections and this allowing us to display them online. For the effort and
time they put into this, they do deserve our deep appreciation.

And now for the changes and additions that were carried out in the Yizkor

Searching for KRASCIEWICZ/KOHN #germany

Howard & Sara Adler <hnsadler@...>
 

I had posted a few weeks ago related to my search for the family of
Tobias KRASCIEWICZ / KOHN >from Vallendar. I was able to contact the
Vallendar archives and I am fortunate to have marriage, birth and death
records on the way! The archives there was very cooperative.

There are other locations mentioned in Tobias KRASCIEWICZ / KOHN's CV and
I was wondering if anyone could tell me where I may be able to find
records for Schukin, Province Posen >from 1870 and earlier. Tobias'
CV mentioned he went to live with a childless Uncle here and said his
older brother Isidore was already installed here as Cantor/Teacher. Any
records >from this time period or location would help break down some
brick walls.

other locations mentioned are:
Unter-Deufstetten, district Crailsheim, Wartenberg >from 1874
Elwangen >from 1874-1876
Pflaumloch, district Neresheim >from 1876
Wurzberg birth records.

Thank you so much, I appreciate any leads in the right direction.

Weekly Feature: Yizkor Book Spotlight #ciechanow #poland

Groll, Avraham
 

Dear Friends,

Beginning this Friday, we will resume posting a brief spotlight
from a Yizkor Book that JewishGen has translated. As many of you
know, the Yizkor books contain vivid accounts of topics ranging
from communal daily life, to the struggles faced during the darkest
days of the Holocaust. If you are not familiar with the JewishGen
Yizkor Book Project, please click here:
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/faq.html

The spotlight will be posted weekly on Friday mornings, at 7:00 am
(EST), on our facebook page. You do not need to be a member of
facebook to view this page. The url is: www.facebook.com/JewishGen.org

I would like to thank Mr. Bruce Drake (Silver Spring, MD), for
volunteering his time to do this each week. Mr. Drake has been involved
with JewishGen since 2006. He is currently coordinating the translation
of the Kovel, Poland Yizkor Book (more details here:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/projectdesc/yb_kovel.html)
while also overseeing the Voynilov, Ukraine KehilaLinks site
(http://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/voynilov/voynilov.html).

We hope that these weekly spotlights will provide a greater
understanding about the lives our ancestors led, and grant a more
profound appreciation for the heritage we share as part of the
broader global Jewish community.

If anyone would like to reach Mr. Drake directly, with comments or
suggestions for future spotlights, please email him at:
bdrake100@gmail.com.

Wishing you all the best of luck with your research.

Avraham Groll
