JewishGen course: Complex Jewish Genealogy in the United States #austria-czech

Phyllis Kramer
 

Times change and family genealogists are becoming more genealogically
experienced, more sophisticated at researching major web sites; yet
organization and good research habits are necessary. Your best value
may be one of our personally mentored, one-on-one, JewishGen courses.

April brings our Intermediate Course, Complex Genealogical Research
in the United States.If, despite basic online research (census, vital
records), you have not yet found the Hebrew names, approximate birth
year and/or former European town(s) for your U.S. immigrant ancestors,
consider this course as it covers more complex U.S. topics such as
naturalization, manifests, death records, military and governmental
records (passports, visas, bankruptcy), and local archival research
(course begins April 3).

This 4 week genealogy course features our personal mentoring program
and our online FORUM. Students are encouraged to post an ancestral
branch, set goals for their research, and work one on one with the
instructor. We are proud of our unique, individualized format and
downloadable lessons.

Students should have 8-10 hours per week to read the lessons, search
online and interact with the instructor. Courses are open 24/7 to meet
the needs of international students. *Please* read the course
descriptions, instructor's credentials and requirements on
www.jewishgen.org/education. Course Registration is opens, tuition is
$150.

If, after reviewing the education page, you have some questions,
please email JewishGen-Education@lyris.JewishGen.org.

Isac Ignacz PICK from Pecek or Golsch-Jenikau? #austria-czech

garybinetter@...
 

I am trying to reconcile my gg-grandfather's place of birth. I
would be grateful for your input.

An obituary for him in the Prager Tagblatt newspaper shows him being
from Pecek ('aus Pecek' - now possibly Pecky, Czechia).
His tombstone at Vienna Cemetery shows him being >from Golsch-Jenikau
('aus Golsch-Jenikau (today Golcuv Jenikov, Czechia).
Pecky is 53km (33 miles) >from Golcuv Jenikov.

Do I assume he was born in Pecky (on 22 APR 1849) and then lived in
Golcuv Jenikov?
What do you think?

Yizkor Book Project, February 2017 #austria-czech

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

If asked to describe the Yizkor Book Project in one word, I would describe
it as the "one-that-never-stands-still-for-a moment" project. Not one word,
you say? You're right, but there isn't really one word to describe our
project as it is multi-faceted and is kept running by a multitude of
dedicated people, >from all corners of the globe, around the clock. I would
now like to relate what these same people have helped us accomplish during
the last month.

For a start, in February two books were added online. The first, which is
completely online is called "Holocaust in Rovno: The Massacre at Sosenki
Forest, November 1941" and was donated by Jeffrey Burds. Clearly this is an
important addition to those of you wishing to learn more about the events
that took place in Rovno (Rivne) during the Holocaust and thank Jeffrey for
this generous and significant donation.

The second book, >from which we have been kindly donated several sections,
comes >from Rasia Moroz of the Jewish Family and Children's Services of
Southern Arizona. The book is called "To Tell Our Stories: Holocaust
Survivors of Southern Arizona" and is particularly interesting as it
includes stories by Holocaust survivors >from the former-Soviet Union, and
their arduous journey east >from Ukraine, Belarus, and Russia, and the
subsequent harshness of life in Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, and Siberia.

In recent times, I have been approached by people interested in seeing the
"A Memorial to the Jewish community of Dubno, Wolyn" book translated into
English. I suggested, as I usually do, that the best way to see this happen
was by setting up a specific Dubno Translation Fund to support the
professional translation of the book. With their agreement this has, in
fact, now been carried out and we now turn to those of you who are Dubno
researchers, to assist us in the lofty goal of making the unique treasures
this book contains available to a wide as possible public. If you are able
to assist financially to any extent, to this particular fund or any of the
other 85 odd project funds we have running, please see the JewishGen-erosity
link at the end of this report. Clearly, every donation is meaningful.

The Yizkor Book in Print Project is another facet of the YB Project that is
always on the move. This last month the "A City and the Dead; Zablotow Alive
and Destroyed - Memorial Book of Zabolotov" became available for purchase -
details may be found via the YBIP link at the end of this report.
By-the-way, Joel Alpert, the YBIP Project Manager, recently informed me that
just in 2016, 1259 books published by this project were sold. For me this is
clear indication of the importance of this particular project and the
"thirst for knowledge" that exists for people looking to learn more about
the communities and people destroyed in the Holocaust.

Other than that, in keeping with our being a never-standing still project,
this past month we received an encouraging number of additions to be added
to our existing projects. These additions come >from our Translation Fund
projects, >from a number of tireless volunteer translators and also from
other good people who have had sections of Yizkor book translated and have
thoughtfully and generously, passed the translations on to us to be added in
online. That's how we keep moving.

Sending money to Bessarabia from U.S. and Canada, pre 1912 #bessarabia

Alan Levitt
 

Many of us had families where one member left Bessarabia for the U.S.
or Canada or other countries, got a job, and saved funds to pay for other
family members to join them. What were common mechanisms to transfer
those funds back to Bessarabia to purchase tickets, etc.? If
families had to travel to Hamburg by train or other means to catch a
ship to the U.S. or Canada, they passed through various countries en
route. How did they pay for food and other needs along the way and
overcome language barriers? How did they obtain assistance if they
needed it? Any links to articles or your own ideas are appreciated.

Re: New York City research questions 1912-1925 #general

How does one obtain the incorporation papers for a burial society?

I've been researching the Gottzolowai Benevolent Association at Mt.
Zion the past few days, trying to figure out which town it was
associated with, by picking names at random and looking for where
they came from. Didn't find much, but what I did find did not seem
to lead to one place.

What I did see was that in 1905-1910 just about everyone in the
Association was living in the East 40s between 1st and 2nd Avenues,
an ethnically diverse neighborhood of slaughterhouses and one that
was completely new to me. Almost everyone in the association had
someone working at a slaughterhouse. In several cases I found
households living in the same building - as many as four in one
case, including the relative I was researching. Among those not
working at a slaughterhouse were a few shopkeepers and a physician,
but all living within a few blocks of each other.

I definitely see some family connections among the people I looked at,
but it seems to me that what these people have in common is probably
the neighborhood or possibly the slaughterhouses themselves.

I'd appreciate anything anyone can add. In addition to being interested
in the Association, I would love to find any photos of what the now
massively-transformed district looked like at the time.
