Yizkor Book Project, May 2017 #ciechanow #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

As is my custom, at the beginning of each month I endeavor to let you know
some of the goings-on and highlights relating to the Yizkor Book Project
over the previous month.

For a start, once again, I am pleased to inform you that two additional
translation projects were completed during this past month and the projects
I am referring to are:

- Czestochowa, Poland (Resistance and Destruction in Ghetto Czestochowa)
which Gloria Berkenstat Freund has single-handedly translated >from beginning
to end - quite a remarkable accomplishment. It should be noted here that
this is the second book which she has completely translated and kindly
presented to the Yizkor Book Project. The complete translation of yet
another Yizkor book about this community is on the horizon and Gloria does
deserve our utmost appreciation for these translations and all the work she
does for the YB Project.
- Jonava, Lithuania (Jonava On the Banks of the Vylia; In memory of the
destroyed Jewish community of Jonava) has been deftly coordinated over many
years by Susan Goldsmith and it is purely through her dedication to this
project, that the full translation of this book has become a reality. We
thank Susan sincerely for seeing this considerable project through to its
successful completion.

from time to time, we add in transliterations of the necrologies appearing
in the various the Yizkor books, as these important lists do provide us with
unique information on the people >from the particular communities who were
killed in the Holocaust. These necrologies were compiled by the survivors of
these communities and whilst these lists don't always include all those
killed, they are considerable in length and include important facts and at
the same time, do remind us the unfathomable, enormity of the Holocaust.
The necrologies added last month, for instance, were for the communities of
Kamen Kashirskiy and Kuty in the Ukraine and include several thousand names.

Over the years, we have transliterated a great deal of the necrologies and
our intention is to continue transliterating these lists till all are
available online. In parallel, Max Heffler and his team have been suiting
the lists that have been prepared so that they can be uploaded to the Yizkor
Book necrology database, providing ready access to the names and relevant
data >from the books existing in the Yizkor Book Project.

Finally, I would like to note that we recently received the first
translation into Polish of an article >from the Nowy Dwor Mazowiecki Yizkor
book and more will be added >from time to time. The YB Project is about
making the material >from the Yizkor Books as widely exposed as possible and
translating the text into Polish allows ready access to readers of this
language to material concerning the thriving communities that existed in
Poland before the Holocaust, material which is quite often unavailable
anywhere else.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried out
in the Yizkor Book Project in May.

We have added in 10 new entries:

- Bernartice nad Odrou, Czech Republic (The Jews and Jewish Communities of

JOWBR Grows to Over 3.1 Million Records! #ciechanow #poland

bounce-3333466-772951@...
 

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2017 pre-Conference update to the
JOWBR (JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial Registry) database. The JOWBR
database can be accessed at www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/ If you're
a new JOWBR user, we recommend that you visit our screencast page at
www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Screencasts/ and take a look at the
first two explanatory screencasts.

This update, adds approximately 80,000 new records and 14,000 new
photos. The database is adding and/or updating 265 cemeteries. This update
brings JOWBR's holdings to 3.13 million records and 535,000 photos from
approximately 7,100 cemeteries / cemetery sections representing 125
countries!

Once again, donors for this update include a mix of individuals, Jewish
genealogical societies, historical societies and museums. We appreciate all
our donor's submissions and the transliteration work done by a faithful
group of JewishGen volunteers.

Significant additions to the database include collections >from Belarus
(courtesy of our new partnership with Chesed Shel Emet), Moldova (Bessarabia
SIG), additional French and German cemetery sets, and United States new and
updated sets (Veterans Administration records, Home of Eternity Cemetery
(Oakland, CA) United Hebrew Bretheren Cemetery (Richfield, MN), various MA
cemeteries (JGSGB). for a complete listing of all cemeteries in JOWBR,
please see www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm

I want to particularly thank Eric Feinstein who has been helping me to
find and gain permission to add many non-US records >from Germany, France and
under-represented countries. Eric's group of volunteers includes Sandra
Bennett, Lineke Bos, Malka Chosnek, George Goldschmied, Ann Meddin Hellman,
Maurice Kessler, Harriet Mayer, Hans Nord, Deborah Ross, Marylin Shalks, and
Suzanne Tarica. In addition, a big thank you to our volunteer
transliterators, led by Gilberto Jugend, without whom we would not be able
to add the information >from some very difficult to read photos.

We appreciate all the work our donors have done and encourage you to
make additional submissions. Whether you work on a cemetery / cemetery
section individually or consider a group project for your local Society,
temple or other group, it's your submissions that help grow the JOWBR
database and make it possible for researchers and family members to find
answers they otherwise might not. Please also consider other organizations
you may be affiliated with that may already have done cemetery indexing that
would consider having their records included in the JOWBR database.

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2017 pre-Conference update for the
Memorial Plaques Database (MPD). The MPD database can be accessed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/ The MPD database includes the
data >from plaques and Yizkor lists >from synagogue and other organizations.
Many of these sources include patronymic information.

This update added approximately 21,000 records and 20,000 photos >from 22
synagogues in the United States and Canada. This update brings the Memorial
Plaques holdings to 157,000 records and 115,000 photos >from approximately

We believe that the MPD is a good example of how users of JewishGen's
databases can "give back". If you are a member of a synagogue or other
organization with memorial plaques or Yizkor lists, please consider helping
us to grow this database. You can find more information on submitting data
at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/Submit.htm If you have

Dear friends,

I am looking for the EIDELMAN family of Zhitomir:

Chayim EIDELMAN (son of Yakov-Mordechai) married Beila KOSTIN
(daughter of Zalman).

They had at least three children: Chana, Sara, Zalman.

I haven't been able to find anything on them (or the KOSTIN family) in
any of the online databases.

If you have any information on this family, please contact me privately.

Many thanks,

I am looking for the EIDELMAN family of Zhitomir:

Chayim EIDELMAN (son of Yakov-Mordechai) married Beila KOSTIN
(daughter of Zalman).

They had at least three children: Chana, Sara, Zalman.

I haven't been able to find anything on them (or the KOSTIN family) in
any of the online databases.

If you have any information on this family, please contact me privately.

Many thanks,

Rony Golan
Israel


JOWBR Grows to Over 3.1 Million Records! #belarus

Nolan Altman
 

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2017 pre-Conference update to the
JOWBR (JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial Registry) database. The JOWBR
database can be accessed at www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/ If you're
a new JOWBR user, we recommend that you visit our screencast page at
www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Screencasts/ and take a look at the
first two explanatory screencasts.

This update, adds approximately 80,000 new records and 14,000 new
photos. The database is adding and/or updating 265 cemeteries. This update
brings JOWBR's holdings to 3.13 million records and 535,000 photos from
approximately 7,100 cemeteries / cemetery sections representing 125
countries!

Once again, donors for this update include a mix of individuals, Jewish
genealogical societies, historical societies and museums. We appreciate all
our donor's submissions and the transliteration work done by a faithful
group of JewishGen volunteers.

Significant additions to the database include collections >from Belarus
(courtesy of our new partnership with Chesed Shel Emet), Moldova (Bessarabia
SIG), additional French and German cemetery sets, and United States new and
updated sets (Veterans Administration records, Home of Eternity Cemetery
(Oakland, CA) United Hebrew Bretheren Cemetery (Richfield, MN), various MA
cemeteries (JGSGB). for a complete listing of all cemeteries in JOWBR,
please see www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm

I want to particularly thank Eric Feinstein who has been helping me to
find and gain permission to add many non-US records >from Germany, France and
under-represented countries. Eric's group of volunteers includes Sandra
Bennett, Lineke Bos, Malka Chosnek, George Goldschmied, Ann Meddin Hellman,
Maurice Kessler, Harriet Mayer, Hans Nord, Deborah Ross, Marylin Shalks, and
Suzanne Tarica. In addition, a big thank you to our volunteer
transliterators, led by Gilberto Jugend, without whom we would not be able
to add the information >from some very difficult to read photos.

We appreciate all the work our donors have done and encourage you to
make additional submissions. Whether you work on a cemetery / cemetery
section individually or consider a group project for your local Society,
temple or other group, it's your submissions that help grow the JOWBR
database and make it possible for researchers and family members to find
answers they otherwise might not. Please also consider other organizations
you may be affiliated with that may already have done cemetery indexing that
would consider having their records included in the JOWBR database.

Nolan Altman
 

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2017 pre-Conference update for the
Memorial Plaques Database (MPD). The MPD database can be accessed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/ The MPD database includes the
data >from plaques and Yizkor lists >from synagogue and other organizations.
Many of these sources include patronymic information.

This update added approximately 21,000 records and 20,000 photos >from 22
synagogues in the United States and Canada. This update brings the Memorial
Plaques holdings to 157,000 records and 115,000 photos >from approximately
250 synagogues / institutions representing 9 countries.

We believe that the MPD is a good example of how users of JewishGen's
databases can "give back". If you are a member of a synagogue or other
organization with memorial plaques or Yizkor lists, please consider helping
us to grow this database. You can find more information on submitting data
at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/Submit.htm If you have
additional questions, please contact me directly.

For a complete listing of the institutions currently in the database, please

Thank you, Meyer, for sharing this heartwarming story. It's sad, but also
"fortunate" that the old group photo had survived!

Dear Fellow JewishGenners,

Last Friday, I posted a request on this digest for assistance in locating
a missing person to reconnect her with some family. Now, I
am at liberty to share the back story and how this puzzle was miraculously
solved after 75 years. First, get a box of tissues.
