For now, the registration form does not have all of the meals. Those items

Yizkor Book Project, January 2019 #latinamerica

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I am continually touched and heartened by the number of people
dedicating their time to advance the Yizkor Book Project. As an
example, I recently received a number of messages >from people
interested in taking on the coordination of some of our
"coordinator-less" Yizkor Book projects, to help move them forward. If
you would like to know more about the coordination of a particular
Yizkor book, please feel free to contact me and I will explain what is
involved,

Last month saw several more projects being completed online and they were:

- "Memories >from Nowy-Dwor" relating to the community of Nowy Dwor
Mazowiecki, Poland which was ably coordinated by Debra Michlewitz.
- "We Want To Live" which is a book describing the arduous journey of
Jewish martyrs across Europe during World War Two. It was kindly
donated to us by the author's son - Joshua Rassen.

On a further welcome note, once again, the Yizkor Books in Print
Project have published another book: "Memorial Book of the Community
of Chorzel" on the community of Chorzele, Poland. The remarkable work
of the YBIP Project team continues ever onward, month by month.

I am also pleased to note that Meir Gover has generously allowed us
access to a 520 page Yizkor book he has prepared on the communities of
Dlugosiodlo and Poreba Koceby. We have added links in the listings of
these communities and, hence this book, in our Translations Index.

And now for the additions and updates are what we've carried out during
January:

Looking for research help #latinamerica

Ruth Kraut <ruthkraut@...>
 

Hello,

My grandfather went via Vilna-->Allenstein German-->Cuba-->Mexico-->U.S.

He was in Mexico >from around 1920 to 1930. I have a record of him
crossing into the U.S. in El Paso at the end of 1930, but he is not in
the 1930 Mexico census.

Anyway, he told us that he landed in Veracruz and (I believe) spent
some time there but spent most of his time in the Chihuahua region,
working for the national railroad and also on elevators in the mines.
(He was a mechanic.)

If you have had success doing research in the Chihuahua/Veracruz area,
and/or if you have a researcher to recommend who could help me, I
would love to hear >from you.

General tips for doing research in Mexico, feel free to reply all.
Specific information, and researcher recommendations, please reply privately.

Thank you!

Dear JewishGen Community,

As you know, JewishGen is a signature program of the Museum of Jewish
Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust. It is my privilege to
share with you the announcement of an important new exhibition that
will open at the Museum on May 8, 2019.

"Auschwitz. Not long ago. Not far away." offers an unprecedented
opportunity to consider Auschwitz and its role in Holocaust history,
and to explore the personal experiences of Jewish families who lived
through this dark chapter of history.

You can read more about the exhibition here
(https://mjhnyc.org/exhibitions/auschwitz/), and in The New York Times
(https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/23/arts/design/auschwitz-museum-of-jewish-heritage.html).
or (https://tinyurl.com/y8hf3t3m)

We look forward to welcoming you to the Museum.

Re: Y-DNA Research Studies of Rabbinical Lineages and Their Importance to Jewish Genealogy #rabbinic

Jeffrey Mark Paull
 

For a little over ten years now, my research team and I, have been conducting Y-DNA research studies which utilize both traditional genealogy and current DNA methods and technology to identify the unique Y-DNA genetic signature and ethnic origin of some of the world's most esteemed and historically significant rabbinical lineages and dynasties. These include the Katzenellenbogen, Lurie, Polonsky, Rappaport-Cohen, and Shapiro rabbinical lineages, and the Twersky and Wertheim-Giterman (Savran-Bendery) Chassidic dynasties, as well as the lineages descending >from the Baal Shem Tov, Rabbi Levi Yitzchak of Berdichev, Rabbi Naftula Cohen of Belaya Tzerkov, Rabbi Raphael of Bershad, Rabbi Yechiel Michel of Zlatchov, Rabbi Yehuda Heller Kahana of Sighet, and the Shpoler Zeida.

I am pleased to announce the posting of a research article in which I explain the importance of rabbinical heritage research studies to the practice of Jewish genealogy, and present an overview and summary of some interesting findings and observations drawn >from our Y-DNA research studies of the thirteen rabbinical lineages and dynasties mentioned above, including the defining haplogroup and subclade that is associated with the Y-DNA genetic signature for each of these lineages. The title of the article is: "Y-DNA Research Studies of Rabbinical Lineages and Their Importance to Jewish Genealogy," and you will find it posted at: https://independent.academia.edu/JeffreyMarkPaull.

Some questions about Polish research #poland

Barry Mann
 

from Stanley Diamond's article:
Obtaining permission to carry out this work is complicated,
however, because birth, marriage and death records are
typically all in the same Duplikat register book. (Original
individual registers of births, marriages or deaths, known as
Unikats, span a number of years and were retained by the
synagogues. Duplikats, also known as metrical registers,
were created for the civil authorities and include births,
marriages and deaths in one book.)

Have any of the Unikats been scanned and digitized ?
Were any of the Duplicate register books,  duplicated themselves.
ie. Is there more than one copy of some of the Duplikat register books.
I found that in one of the Duplikat register books , one or more pages
were missing. (Torn out).

Do the towns leaders have the latest information for their towns
including Phase 2 and Phase 3 records?
And are all these records included in the Excel files that the leaders
have for their towns.

How can I find out for a particular town: What records and for which
years the town leader has, but have
not yet been added to the JRI-Poland datebase yet?

Thanks,
Barry Mann

Information about VENNITSKY (Vinnitski) from Vilna #general

I am looking for information about the VENNITSKY (Vinnitski, Vennit)

According to the 1920 Brooklyn US Census my great grandfather, Menasha
Vennitsky, was born in 1864 in Vilna. His wife, Fannie Schosid
Vennitsky, was also born in Vilna in 1875. Their children were Dora,
Max, Charlie, Esther (Joy) and Sam. They arrived at Ellis Island in
about 1900.
Any help in learning something about the Vennitsky family would be
greatly appreciated.
