I am seeking any information about my grandfather's sister. She arrived in NY in
1900 >from Kamenets-Podolski, Ukraine as Pesse BARR, aged 17, with her father Itsig
(Isidore) and younger brothers Chone (Jacob) and Welwel (William). The family
originally came >from Moghilev-Podolski.

I have information that she later went by the name Fannie and had daughters
Florence and Ann, but I don't know her married name or where she lived. I have not
been able to find any marriage record in NYC or New Jersey. Her father and all her
siblings remained in NYC and Newark. Her older brothers were Isaac, Morris and
Joseph.

If you have any information about her please respond privately.

Thanks,
Deborah Barr

Shalom,

After a prolonged period in which our Yizkor Books Main Name Index (YBMNI)
has been left "orphaned", Linda Richman has kindly taken the helm as
project coordinator and I'm pleased to inform you that last month quite a
few thousand entries were added to this index which now includes more than
90,000 records. For those of you unfamiliar with the YBNMNI, it was set up
as a researchers to find where particular family names appear in the various
Yizkor books. As you can imagine, a great deal of painstaking work is
required to extract the names >from the translations, setup them up in lists
and pass them on to be uploaded to the YBMNI database. If you would be
interested in joining the team carrying this out, I would be very glad to
hear >from you. In the meantime, you can check the index out for yourself at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Yizkor/Names/

Apart >from this index, I would like to remind you that we also have the
necrology index which contains the names appearing in the various Yizkor
book necrologies - another invaluable research tool. This particular project
is led by the indefatigable Max Heffler and contains more than 345,000
entries, is regularly updated and can be found at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/

In both these projects, the hard and finicky work of volunteers is what
allows us to make these indexes available. Over the years there have been
around 600 volunteers involved in these projects and in the Yizkor Book
Project, in general, and we do like to recognize their contribution by
listing them in our list of volunteers:

http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/

We have made every effort to make sure all the volunteers are listed and if,
for some unknown reason, you have volunteered but you aren't listed, please
let me know. In the meantime, dear volunteers - thank you for all you do!

And now for all the changes and additions that were carried out in the
Yizkor Book Project over May.

Recommendations for genealogists/tour guides Hungary, Romania, Western Ukraine #general

John Hoenig
 

Hi all. It's getting to the point where a road trip is in order. I'd like to go to
Budapest, travel northeast into Romania (area around Cluj Napoca), then perhaps to
Radauti and finally into western Ukraine (area around Ivano-Frankivsk).

I'd like to enlist the services of a genealogist or genealogists to do research in
preparation for the trip. Hopefully, that or those person(s) can also show us
around when we visit. Any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated. Please reply
to my email address. Thank you.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen SIMON from Schwindratzheim to Algeria #general

Linda Berkowitz
 

I am searching for the descendants of Isaac SIMON, born 1827 in Schwindratzheim and
died 1869 in Mustapha, Algeria.

He married Julie WEILL in Constantine, Algeria in 1858. Julie was born in 1830 in
Muttersholtz; her parents were Jacques WEIL and Madeleine DREYFUS. Isaac SIMON
and Julie WEIL SIMON had a daughter Amelia, born 1861 in Algeria. Amelia married
Louis Marie Charles DECREPT in Phillipeville, Algeria in 1885; she died in Algeria
in 1923.

Any information on the SIMON descendants in Algeria would be greatly appreciated.

Scranton, PA Cemetery on Providence Road #general

Steve Stein <steinsteve@...>
 

There are two Jewish cemeteries in the immediate Scranton, PA area - the
large one in Dalton several miles out of the city, with several thousand
burials and currently in use; and a much smaller and older one on Providence
Road inside the city, with fewer than a thousand burials, the latest of
which appears to have been in the early 1950s. Many years ago, the Amos Bnai
Brith Lodge in Scranton did a restoration project, which they documented
online, including a "complete" list of burials and a number of photographs
(but I know of two infant burials not on the list). In addition, some of the
burials have sketchy information recorded on the website, e.g. missing
surnames and other key information.

Alas, the website and the organization appear to have gone missing a few
years ago, although I can retrieve the website pages via the Wayback Machine
(a.k.a. the Internet Archive). I contacted BB National and the contact they
gave me did not respond. It would be great if the burials could be
transferred to JOWBR, but I would want to contact the organization that did
the restoration to see if they could (1) provide the photos and (2) give the
go-ahead to copy their information. The professional photographer whose
contact information on the defunct website also has not yet responded.

I'm looking for anyone with contacts in the local Bnai Brith chapter, or any
knowledge of this project. Another researcher and I are willing to redo the
JOWBR work, but it would be great to save ourselves the trip and the time if
possible. I have already mined the data into a spreadsheet and I am editing it.

TIA,

New York Jewish Genealogy Course begins June 27 #general

Phyllis Kramer
 

So many of our immigrant ancestors lived in New York City...they started on the
Lower East Side and upgraded to the Bronx, Brooklyn and surrounds.

Sure we have the census >from Ancestry and FamilySearch and vital records >from
ItalianGen, but this class will focus on the more esoteric documents our ancestors
generated ...naturalization, probate, landsmanshaften, voters registration,
newspapers, court cases. This will be useful to those who want to find that missing
branch, visit or contact NY Archives. We will have suggestions on where to
research, where to wander and how to get there..and we'll schedule a field trip
to selected archives.

This is an intermediate/advanced level genealogy course with 8 text
lessons you can download; there are no specific times for the course
as students are international. We feature a unique personal mentoring
program where students select a branch to research and work one-on-one
with the instructor. Students should have 8-10 hours per week to read
the lessons, search online and interact with the instructor.

The tuition is $125. Registration is open. Enrollment is limited.
Please...review the details under the New York course description at
www.jewishgen.org/education; and enroll on the same page.
