Yizkor Book Project, March 2017 #romania

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Each month, I like to bring you up-to-date with all the news and activities
carried out by the Yizkor Book Project over the previous month. This time,
the first piece (or pieces) of good news is that an additional three books
are now completely online:

- Bransk, Poland (Brainsk; Book of Memories) which was completely translated
and kindly donated by Rubin Roy Cobb.
- Gostynin, Poland (Book of Gostynin) which was coordinated by Jessie Klein.
I thank Jessie for her tireless dedication and support which led to the
successful completion of this translation project.
- Nowy Dwor Mazowiecki, Poland (Memorial book of Nowy-Dwor) which was
coordinated by Debra Michlewitz. I thank Debra for her dedication and drive
which allowed us to see the translation of this book completely online.

The other pieces of good news come >from the Yizkor Books in Print Project in
which two new titles were added to our ever-growing list.

- Memorial Book of Brichany, Moldova: It's Jewry in the First Half of Our
Century
- Blood Stained Feathers; My Life Story

For more details of these books and all the other books now available,
please see the link at the end of this message.

I think I need to point out that when we set out upon this publishing
project - the Yizkor Books in Print Project, our thought was that the books
would be sold at the lowest possible price - just sufficient to cover our
printing outlays. Together with the publishing costs, as there are no
royalties associated with these books, this assists us in maintaining a
relatively low price for these unique, hard-cover books which provide access
to information and stories of the communities destroyed in the Holocaust.

As I regularly point out, volunteers are an integral part of our project and
from time to time, we do look for more assistance in specific parts of the
project. For instance, we are presently in search of a volunteer who is
fluent in Hebrew and English, has experience in editing and as willing to
help out in this field. If you meet this description and have some time
available, I would very glad to hear >from you.

Before, providing details of our activities in March, I would like to take
this opportunity to wish you and your families a particularly enjoyable and
memorable Pesach/Passover.

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

Subcarpathia SIG #Subcarpathia Yizkor Book Project, March 2017 #subcarpathia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Each month, I like to bring you up-to-date with all the news and activities
carried out by the Yizkor Book Project over the previous month. This time,
the first piece (or pieces) of good news is that an additional three books
are now completely online:

- Bransk, Poland (Brainsk; Book of Memories) which was completely translated
and kindly donated by Rubin Roy Cobb.
- Gostynin, Poland (Book of Gostynin) which was coordinated by Jessie Klein.
I thank Jessie for her tireless dedication and support which led to the
successful completion of this translation project.
- Nowy Dwor Mazowiecki, Poland (Memorial book of Nowy-Dwor) which was
coordinated by Debra Michlewitz. I thank Debra for her dedication and drive
which allowed us to see the translation of this book completely online.

The other pieces of good news come >from the Yizkor Books in Print Project in
which two new titles were added to our ever-growing list.

- Memorial Book of Brichany, Moldova: It's Jewry in the First Half of Our
Century
- Blood Stained Feathers; My Life Story

For more details of these books and all the other books now available,
please see the link at the end of this message.

I think I need to point out that when we set out upon this publishing
project - the Yizkor Books in Print Project, our thought was that the books
would be sold at the lowest possible price - just sufficient to cover our
printing outlays. Together with the publishing costs, as there are no
royalties associated with these books, this assists us in maintaining a
relatively low price for these unique, hard-cover books which provide access
to information and stories of the communities destroyed in the Holocaust.

As I regularly point out, volunteers are an integral part of our project and
from time to time, we do look for more assistance in specific parts of the
project. For instance, we are presently in search of a volunteer who is
fluent in Hebrew and English, has experience in editing and as willing to
help out in this field. If you meet this description and have some time
available, I would very glad to hear >from you.

Before, providing details of our activities in March, I would like to take
this opportunity to wish you and your families a particularly enjoyable and
memorable Pesach/Passover.

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

WEINER family of Zenta #hungary

Georges Graner
 

Hello,

I am looking for details on a WEINER family living in Zenta (now Senta
in Serbia). I found very few details in Familysearch and in the
HSig-database. Can you advice me for other sources ?

The people I am looking for are the children of WEINER Adolf and
SCHLESINGER Julia. They had 11 children but 3 died early. I guess that
all were born in Zenta. Several of them died in Zenta but others were
deported.

Their names are

WEINER Lipot (1873-1944), Etel (1875-1944), Antal (1878-1955), Imre
(1880-1937), Szeren (1882- ), Emma (1884-1944), Mariska (1886-1944),
Erzsebet (1895- ).

I would appreciate any details on these people and their offsprings.

Re: index of Alsace marriages #france

Pierre HAHN
 

Thanks Jean-Pierre,

I was only the helper in the Alsatian marriages the thanks should go
to my cousin Jean-Christophe Leveque (formely Levy), who plowed
through all the indeces of the Haut and Bas Rhin.

We think that there are at least another few thousand marriages to be
added especially >from the Republisan calendar years as the hand
writing is barely legible in many records.

If you find other marriages that are missing, or errors, please send
them to my address, and in time they will be added and fixed.

We, Jean-Christophe and I, hope this marriage database will help
somone to move their knowledge of their family tree another
generation.

In the future we plan to add marriages >from other departments.

Re: Gestapo files #germany

A month ago I submitted a request for any ideas how to access Gestapo
records on my grandparents who lived in Nurnberg and Furth, Bavaria. I had
a wonderful response with many recommendations and I have thanked
individuals privately. But I thought it might be helpful to others if I
summarised the suggestions received. At this stage I cannot report on any
outcome for me as I am still ploughing my way through these ideas, listed in
no particular order:
