Bessarabia SIG, Update for October 2016 #ukraine

Yefim Kogan
 

Hi everybody,

Please see the What's New Section for the details of what we did new in the month of October.

1) We have completed indexing and sent to JOWBR information on TWO more Jewish cemeteries in Bessarabia/Moldova:

- Jewish Cemetery of Bricevo. 128 records with 128 photographs are sent to JewishGen/JOWBR. Also there are 255 photos of unknown graves available at the Bessarabia SIG website and >from Bricheva Cemetery report.
There is a section at the cemetery, which was not accessable, and it most likely has about 150-300 graves. We will need to do a restoration and cleaning of this cemetery in order to get to them. Also if you did not donate yet for that cemetery, please do so. It will help to cover all the costs.


- Cemetery of Straseni. According to the information I got at the end of 1990s that cemetery had about 150 Jewish graves, but in September of this year only 12 graves were found. It is possible that there is a cemetery on another location, but very unlikely. It is not that you can find a Jewish cemetery in the phone town book. So far 12 Jewish graves were found at the town cemetery. If anyone has knowledge about this or any other cemetery were Jews are buried, pleace call me.

2) An update was made for the Revision List records which are going to be uploaded to JewishGen in December of 2016. Two large sets were completed, for Kishinev and for Telneshty. You can get the complete table of these records for a donation of $100 to Bessarabia SIG General fund. If you will find records of your ancestors, we will also send you the copies of the original Revisions.

3) A chapter of Kishinev Yizkor Book (Jews of Kishinev) was translated: "Hasidism and Enlightment" and now available at JewishGen / Yizkor books. Thanks a lot to Sheli Fain for her work.

Thanks also to all volunteers who worked on thanslating Revision Records, grave inscriptions, and more.

Please let us know if you have any questions, ideas of how to make our Bessarabia SIG and the website better.

All the best,

JGS of Long Island meeting - Sunday, November 20, 2016 #general

Jackie Wasserstein
 

The next meeting of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island will be
held on Sunday, November 20.

Time: 2:00 PM
Place: Mid-Island Y JCC, 45 Manetto Hill Road Plainview, New York
http://www.miyjcc.org

Topic: "Galician Portraits, In Search of Jewish Roots"

Guest Speaker: Dr. Andrew Zalewski

Dr. Zalewski will be discussing his second book about his Galician roots.

In large cities, small towns, and tiny villages of Austrian Galicia, the
region that >from 1772 to 1918 spanned parts of today's Poland and Ukraine, the
book reflects on centuries of Jewish history in the region, on the interaction
between its ethnic groups, and on the debates and tensions within the diverse
Jewish community. Despite the challenges to tracing Jewish heritage anywhere
in Europe, especially in the years of the Holocaust, Dr. Zalewski has
discovered many voices that had long been forgotten as well as surprising
details about his own family.

His talk will be illustrated by genealogical findings, archival pictures
and old maps of Galicia.

Admission is free and all are welcome.

Our "Mavens" will be available at 1:30 PM to take your genealogy questions.

Plipsche? #galicia

Merle Kastner <merlebk18@...>
 

Can anyone tell me what this town would be - "Plipsche", Galicia?

This is obviously the Yiddish pronunciation, but I have not been able
to find anything, not even close, in the long list of towns on the site.

Furthermore, in another place, this person is listed as coming >from
"Austria", which is probably Bukovina.

Sure hope someone can help.

With thanks,

Re: Advice on finding a passenger list #germany

Dear Ellen:

Ship manifests for Ellis Island are only available >from 1892 to 1957
Before then, ships arriving in New York arrived at Castle Garden (1855 to
1890).

Check out the website of Steven Morse at www.StevenMorse.org. He does not
have the data on his website. His website is basically a search engine that
searches all the websites where the information might be listed. On this
website, you can search for arrivals into a variety of ports around the
country.

If that does not work, do a search on www.Ancestry.com (available for free
at an LDS Family History Library or at your local library) for the name of
the ship, the port of departure, and the date of arrival. You can then go
through the entire microfilm, page by page, to see if you can locate your
ancestor. I hope this is helpful.

The organization of Piotrkow survivors and descendants have published the
latest edition of their magazine Hedim/Voice, November 2016. The 54 page
journal includes an article about the gravestones in the Piotrkow
Trybunalski cemetery that explains how JRI-Poland has already identified 300
tombstones that previously only had patronymics. The article can be seen
at:
www.jri-poland.org/downloads/Piotrkow-Tryb-Hedim-Voice-Bulletin-Cemetery-Article.pdf


To download the full journal and see previously published editions of
Hedim/Voice, go to:
www.piotrkow-jc.com/en/voice.html

A full list of the more than 1700 gravestones can be viewed on the Piotrkow
Trybunalski Cemetery website at: http://cemetery.jewish.org.pl/list/c_84

This list will eventually be modified to include all newly identified
tombstones. In the meantime, if you would like to know if you have an
ancestor buried in the cemetery, please send me the surnames in which you
are interested.

Please also contact me for information on Piotrkow Trybunalski vital records
