Yizkor Book Translation Coordinators Needed #bessarabia

R Jaffer
 

Dear Fellow Bessarabia Researchers,

Most of us were not able to ask our immigrant ancestors about the
towns in which they lived in Bessarabia, and few of our immigrant
ancestors willingly spoke of their past with their children. The best
way to get a flavor of what life was like for them, is to read a
Yizkor Book if one had been written for your town after the Holocaust.
Unfortunately, these books are not accessible to us unless we are able
to fluently read Yiddish or Hebrew. Lance Ackerfield is the Yizkor
Book Project Manager to translate these books into English.

As the last translation coordinator for the Briceni book, I have
experience working with a Yiddish translator, soliciting funds for
professional translations, and bringing the book to print. While not
finding my relatives mentioned in this book, I learned a great deal
about the community, and I can now visualize the layout of the town
and daily life.

On behalf of the Bessarabia Sig, I am now seeking new translation
coordinators for the books listed below. You do not Hebrew or Yiddish
language skills to be a coordinator. You will be given a list of paid
professional translators, or you may ask for volunteer translators for
specific sections. Please contact me privately to learn more about
this rewarding position. Since the book for Briceva is nearly
translated, the person taking on that responsibility will be primarily
working with Joel Alpert to ready the book for printing.

Thank you for considering these positions,

Roberta Jaffer
JewishGen Bessarabia SIG Yizkor Books Translation Project Manager


Briceva - Memorial Book of Brichevo Nova Sulita (Nearly done)

Calarasi - The Book of Kalarash in Memory of the Town's Jews, Which
Was Destroyed in the Holocaust

colony in Bessarabia

And

- There once was a town - a descriptive monograph of the town of Dombroven

Edinet - Yad l'Yedinitz; memorial book for the Jewish community of
Yedintzi, Bessarabia, Moldova

Khotin - The book of the community of Khotin (Bessarabia)

Lipcani - The community of Lipkany; memorial book

Marculesti - Markuleshty; Memorial to a Jewish Colony in Bessarabia

View Mate Russian Translation #poland

Rowena Zylali
 

I have posted a birth record in Russian for which I need a translation
including as many details as possible about places, routes, dates, and
trades of the family as possible. I already know the names of the
parents and child.

There are five birth records recorded on the same day, for five children
born in different years, and I'm trying to understand why that would
happen in a town where they were not born. A sister is the first record,
my Great Grandfather is the second half of the page. Were they both born
in Chavusy? Does it say how long they were in this town? What is the name
of this town in Suwalki where this record was documented?

Any details you can provide would be tremendously appreciated.

https://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/responselist.asp?key=71446

Please respond via the form provided on the ViewMate image page.

Thank you very much.
