USHMM Website Access #general

Lande
 

For more than 20 years, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM)
has been developing a massive names database for Holocaust victims and
survivors, Jews and non-Jews. As of now, this database, the Holocaust
Survivors and Victims Database (HSV) has 6,769,691 entries.

This does not mean that this number of individuals have been identified,
since an individual's name will appear each time it is indexed >from a
document, for example, if he/she was sent to several concentration camps.
About half of these name entries may be accessed on the web by going to
https://www.ushmm.org/online/hsv/person_advance_search.php.
(Unfortunately, the remaining names cannot be so accessed due to
restrictions on web access imposed by the organizations which provided the
data, though all names may be accessed by visitors to the Museum)

A new service, which is gradually being introduced, facilitates inquirers
seeking to obtain copies of the document/s where a name appears. Where a
listing, (use Sofi Albert Cohen born 1911 in Bukarest as an example) says
"Media," you may request a copy of the document as instructed in the record.
Please include the personal ID number which appears with each such listing.

This service is designed so that the requestor can obtain copies of
documents quickly, Please be patient if "Media" does not appear with every
name of interest, though this service will continually be expanded. Do not
ask research questions through this link, as this is for copy requests only.

Re: 1820 Iasi Census #romania

Rosanne Leeson
 

In response to a request for further information re the 1820 Iasi
Census, here is what is found on the KehilahLinks Iasi Site:

"Census - 1803-1851 - Jews of Iasi - Language: Old Cyrillic - Iasi
Archives; catagrati; difficult to read, no supplemental finding aids
(indexes), 1808 is published in Volume one of the collection "Documente
istorice privitoare la orasul Iasi" (Historical documents concerning the
town of Iasi), edited by Ioan Caprosu and Mihai-Razvan Ungureanu (Iasi,
1997)."

This is the description of what these records are, and it clearly shows that
the information is scant by our definition of a census. No family
information is included, only the name of male is shown, and there are
no family names. And it is in Old Romanian Cyrillic.

Yizkor Book Project, October 2016 #hungary

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Where do I begin? So much has happened of late. Firstly, I am pleased to
inform you that over October we completed uploading translations >from no
less than five books and they are:

Two books that were prepared by William Liebner and kindly donated to the YB
Project - "Blood Stained Feathers; The Life Story of a Shoah Survivor"
(Nowy Sacz, Poland) and the Zabrze Yizkor Book (Zabrze, Poland)
"The Memorial book: the Ritavas Community; A Tribute to the Memory of our
Town" (Rietavas, Lithuania), permission for which was gratefully received
from Romi Kaplan of the Kaplan-Kushlick Foundation in Capetown.
"Our Shtetl; Vysotsk memorial book" (Vysotsk, Ukraine) which was translated
by Kevin Allen and we do thank he and Sara Allen for this important
contribution to our site.
"Our town, Neishtot" (Zemaiciu Naumiestis, Lithuania) which was translated
and gratefully donated to the YB book by Dr. Benjamin Lesin.

The YB Project now has 123 books fully online and in the coming months, I
foresee further books achieving the completely online status. Some projects,
however, are just at their outset and this past month, a new Translations
Fund was setup for the Zbarazh, Ukraine Yizkor with a view to funding the
translation of this book. We now have over 80 of the Yizkor Book Translation
Funds that have been setup to enable people to financially support the
professional translation of the community books. Please see link to this
list at the end of this report to the list of funds.

Another milestone this past month was the publishing of two more books (now
52 all in all) by the Yizkor Books in Print Project:

"Radzyn Memorial Book" (Radzyn Podlaski, Poland)
"The Unlikely Hero of Sobrance" (Sobrance, Slovakia)

Joel Alpert and team continue to work tirelessly to make these books
available for the benefit of many. Details of the books now available can be
found via the link appearing at the end of this report.

Finally, we added in a number of entries >from the Yad Vashem "Pinkasim"
series (Encyclopedias of Jewish Communities) including quite a few
translations about Latvia communities which were provided by the Latvia SIG
and we do appreciate these very welcome additions to our project. The
"Pinkas" series provides unique information on so many communities that
don't have their own Yizkor book. Although we do have a large number of
translations of community entries >from these volumes available in the YB
site, we are always on the lookout to continue this endeavor.

If you would like to know more about the "Pinkasim" series, the Yizkor Book
Project in general, or would like to become involved in our project, I would
definitely like to hear >from you.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried out

(Nowy Sacz, Poland) and the Zabrze Yizkor Book (Zabrze, Poland)
"The Memorial book: the Ritavas Community; A Tribute to the Memory of our
Town" (Rietavas, Lithuania), permission for which was gratefully received
from Romi Kaplan of the Kaplan-Kushlick Foundation in Capetown.
"Our Shtetl; Vysotsk memorial book" (Vysotsk, Ukraine) which was translated
by Kevin Allen and we do thank he and Sara Allen for this important
contribution to our site.
"Our town, Neishtot" (Zemaiciu Naumiestis, Lithuania) which was translated
and gratefully donated to the YB book by Dr. Benjamin Lesin.

The YB Project now has 123 books fully online and in the coming months, I
foresee further books achieving the completely online status. Some projects,
however, are just at their outset and this past month, a new Translations
Fund was setup for the Zbarazh, Ukraine Yizkor with a view to funding the
translation of this book. We now have over 80 of the Yizkor Book Translation
Funds that have been setup to enable people to financially support the
professional translation of the community books. Please see link to this
list at the end of this report to the list of funds.

Another milestone this past month was the publishing of two more books (now
52 all in all) by the Yizkor Books in Print Project:

"Radzyn Memorial Book" (Radzyn Podlaski, Poland)
"The Unlikely Hero of Sobrance" (Sobrance, Slovakia)

Joel Alpert and team continue to work tirelessly to make these books
available for the benefit of many. Details of the books now available can be
found via the link appearing at the end of this report.

Finally, we added in a number of entries >from the Yad Vashem "Pinkasim"
series (Encyclopedias of Jewish Communities) including quite a few
translations about Latvia communities which were provided by the Latvia SIG
and we do appreciate these very welcome additions to our project. The
"Pinkas" series provides unique information on so many communities that
don't have their own Yizkor book. Although we do have a large number of
translations of community entries >from these volumes available in the YB
site, we are always on the lookout to continue this endeavor.

If you would like to know more about the "Pinkasim" series, the Yizkor Book
Project in general, or would like to become involved in our project, I would
definitely like to hear >from you.

Re: Plipsche? #galicia

Merle,

I have already replied to you query, listed in JG discussion group,
indicating two possible places near Krakow.

Since you have now narrowed your research to Bukovina, perhaps
you should consider the small Jewish town listed in the JG Gazetteer
as Pilipche at 4838 2605. The town is located in the Borszczow
region of Tarnopol Province near Ustye (ex Uscie Biskupie) and
Mielnica Podoska and near border Dniester River, which separated
Galicia >from Bukovina (currently Ternopil and Chernivtsi oblasts).

The Gazetteer indicates that Pilipche was known in the past as
Filipkowce, and you might review names listed in the entry for
Filipkowce in the 1929 Poland Business Directory at:

http://data.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/1929/loadtop.htm?1658

Yiddish town names can be sometimes a bit tricky, one can expect
some slight linguistic deviation of the original (Polish) name, but is
not a rule. Probably the native Ukrainian name was adopted in this
case.

Best,

Alexander Sharon

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.

Bessarabia SIG, Update for October 2016 #general

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,

Looking to contact Pearl NEVIS >from Manhattan, New York, or with her descendants.

Pearl was the daughter of Chaim HOROWITZ, the son of Rabbi Yosef Yozel
from Novahrodok.
Pearl was born about 1915, in 2009 is still alive in Manhattan.

I found the appropriate entry in ancestry.com, but there is no more information,
and I have no way to verify if it really is.

Thank you
