Re: town in poland #general

Bev Rayburn asked: Any ideas what the town name in Poland would be for
this phonetic spelling: Rafalowee

Bev: Yours is not an easy search...so if you have additional information it would
help. i couldnt find any town on the community pages (which are 6500 towns
in eastern europe which had Jewish residents and institutions) so i
looked on the gazetteer which covers all the towns...these are three possiblities:
Rafalow 76.1 miles SSE of Warszawa ..5112/2153 near ciepielow and lipsko
Rafalow 129.0 miles WSW of Warszawa 5136/1809...near grabow
Rafalow 77.4 miles WSW of Warszawa ...5156/1915 near Parzeczew and zgierze

there's also a Rafalov in Belarus today.5145/3010.. the area was Russian-poland in
the past, Minsk Gubernya
There's also a Rafalivka, Ukraine which was in Poland between the world wars.
5122/2552. this town had a Jewish population and there is a communities page for it
...but the jews called it Rafalefke [Yid]...so its less likely

In the JewishGen Poland Database, i queried towns "starting" with rafalo and found
4 records registered in Rafalovka, Lutsk uezd province....also brest-litovsk...Also
found two Kupers applying for emergency passports >from this town

let me suggest that you go to JRI-Poland...on the search page there is a surname
finder...put in your surnames and see where the groupings are...and if any match
one of the four locales above.

you might also search the surnames, using say 25 miles >from the coordinates of the
three towns listed above.

Keep in mind: 1- the year of your clue of Rafalowee...(that poland was not on the
map >from 1770sthru 1918 when it was reconstructed by the allies)...2-that W and V
were changeable over the years, depending on the language..3-that the town names in
yiddish were often different >from the town names that the governments used....
4-that F and B were sometimes confused during transliterations of the name >from one
language to another...these clues might help focus your search.

Thank you kindly. But I’m flabbergasted that Bucharest is not on the list.
It wasn’t an extermination camp, but thousands of young men like my father
were beaten half-to-death in a forced labor camp. Many died.

Visit JewishGen's New Website #galicia

Nancy Siegel
 

JewishGen is pleased to announce our newly designed website at
www.JewishGen.org. We commissioned the creation of a new landing page
to serve as a launching point for the main components of the website. The
site is built on a modern, secure platform, which is beneficial for a number
of reasons, including:

*It has a more intuitive and user-friendly design,
*It is mobile-responsive, and
*It has a more familiar platform, which will make it easier for us to find
qualified consultants, contractors and volunteers to help us in the future.

This is not the final plan. It's a stop-gap redesign that addresses some
of the shortcomings of our website by creating a visually appealing,
mobile-friendly, and easy to navigate homepage that researchers can
utilize to find key components on the JewishGen site. While we attracted
approximately one million unique visitors to the JewishGen site last year,
only a small portion of this group actually registered or became regular
users. We anticipate that an enhanced website will improve these results.

Specifically, we hope the new landing page will help guide researchers to:

*Search the online collection
*Locate ancestral communities
*Explore life in their ancestral communities
*Join our discussion groups
*Volunteer, and
*Donate.

Over the next two months, we will begin crafting a proper technology
strategy, which will include our website and databases. In the meantime,
however, this new landing page will immediately help researchers, while
also demonstrating JewishGen's strategic focus.

Thank you to everyone on our staff and volunteer leadership team for
their suggestions and contributions to making this happen. Special thanks
to Scott Seidenstock, Gary Sandler, and Warren Blatt.

Please enjoy the site and visit www.JewishGen.org now. Feedback and
suggestions will be most welcome!

Re: Trial

Yefim Kogan
 

If we limit language to only English, that in my opinion is a big mistake.  We loose many people from Latin America, Easter Europe.

I think that better for us, English speakers to translate from Spanish or Russian, etc.

I understand Yefim, but by writing in a language other than English it might limit those who can offer help. Whenever I suggest someone write to JG I say, write in short sentences and people aren't put off by mistakes.  Even if you use a translator your best translations are when the sentences are short and not complex and long.

hebrew translation of gravestones #hungary

afriedman21@...
 

hi,

appreciate someone's help. i have six gravestone pictures, and have
rough translations of those. I would appreciate if there was someone
who was willing to review the gravestone pictures and rough
translations to correct them. i would like the wording correct, but
more importantly want to be sure i get all the genealogy information,
like fathers name etc, correct.

i would send them to the h-sig, but it does not allow photo attachments..

thank you
