Nancy Siegel
 

JewishGen.org is proud to announce its JewishGen Future Scholars Fellowship.

This immersive program, created in partnership with The Matzevah
Foundation, Inc., will provide an experiential opportunity for younger
audiences to appreciate the application and impact JewishGen, and
Jewish genealogy can have in everyday life.

Specifically, it will focus on the role of Jewish cemeteries today in
preserving the memory and legacy of former Jewish communities. Our six
highly qualified Fellows will learn about symbols on tombstones, the
state of Jewish cemeteries in Poland after Holocaust, efforts to
preserve them, and what lessons can be gleaned to inform our own life
choices today.

Throughout the 10-day experience, >from June 12-June 20, Fellows will
have an opportunity to visit many Jewish heritage sites including
Warsaw and Lublin, spend an inspirational Shabbat in Krakow, and visit
Auschwitz/Birkenau. The group will then spend time in Krzepice,
Poland, where they will participate in the clean-up and preservation
of the Jewish cemetery in partnership with the local high school.
(Krzepice is about 25 kilometers west of Czestochowa.)

The trip will be led by highly experienced staff (including Avraham
Groll, Dan Oren, and Steven D. Reece), and participants will have an
opportunity to learn >from rabbis, scholars, dignitaries, and community
leaders, who will offer first-hand insights regarding the imperative
(and challenges) of cleaning-up cemeteries in accordance with Jewish
law. They will address how local Polish communities view Jewish
cemeteries in their towns, the need to preserve Jewish memory, and
more.

Upon returning home, each Fellow will write an essay reflecting on his
or her experience. These essays will be made available on the
JewishGen website.

Please be sure to follow our JewishGen Fellows, and check our Facebook

(UK) Forces War Records Launched a New Update to Their Records Page #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Forces War Records has launched a new update to their records page. When a
record is viewed, if details can be cross-matched with other records within
their unique database that they believe to be the same person, additional
records with the highest probably matches will appear at the top of the
page. These can then be "clicked" on to view each individual record and you
can then scroll through each of them using the arrows on the page, or close
to revert back to the original record. They have 22 million Commonwealth
military service records on their website.

One can place a name in the search engine and receive a list of records that
they have available-this is free. However, if you want to see the record
that requires a paid membership.

To access the website go to: https://www.forces-war-records.co.uk/

I have no affiliation with Forces War Records and am posting this solely for
the information of the reader.

Offering Photos / Research at Mount Hebron Cemetery, Flushing, Queens, New York #general

A. E. Jordan
 

I think my next cemetery visit / research will be the at Mount Hebron in Flushing,
Queens, New York. A number of people have been asking about locating/photographing
graves at this cemetery

I am happy to look for graves and take photos provided you can ID the appropriate
person. Mount Hebron has a database where you can start with your research.

I am pretty good at finding my way around in Mount Hebron and most o the cemetery
is in very good condition

Infants, babies and children are the most difficult because a lot of times they did
not have as significant stones and they do not survive the years. If you are
looking for a child's grave please tell me in advance.

Please be specific in your requests because I can not help you if you write
with a common name and say can you find for example Harry Cohen.... you can guess
how many there are in this cemetery. Mount Hebron has more than 200,000 burials
starting in 1909.

I do appreciate but do not demand a few dollars in return to help offset the cost
of doing these search for everyone and to make it possible for me to continue to
offer this as a service to the community. As you can understand the costs of these
repeated searches add up on me.

I am also happy to offer advice online if you email me.

Allan Jordan

MODERATOR: Private responses only, please.

1. 18th Century Tombstones in Jewish Cemeteries in Hungary

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Subject: 18th Century Tombstones in Jewish Cemeteries in Hungary
From: cia@interlog.com
Date: Mon, 10 Jun 2019 14:32:44 -0400
X-Message-Number: 1

I came across a fascinating document on the website OR-ZSE.hu: the 339 page
doctoral dissertation on the above-noted topic by Balogh Istvan defended
summa cum laude on March 2019. This will be of interest only to those
researching forebears before the end of the 1700s, able to read Hungarian at
a fairly sophisticated level. The research is grouped into some geographic
areas of Hungary (it does not include the South East (the Great Plains) on
which area the author wrote an earlier book.

The cemeteries of some of the towns covered in the thesis are: Nagykanizsa,
Paks, Acs, Lovasbereny, Baja, Balassagyarmat, Miskolc, Mad, Mako,
Bodrogkeresztur and Obuda. For each cemetery there is a detailed, scholarly
analysis of the matzevot with names, design style and other detail. For this
part of the document, which is likely to be of most interest to
genealogists, a knowledge of Hebrew might suffice as the Hebrew writing
(along with the Hungarian) is included. There are photos of many of the
cemeteries along with memorial plaques (no names).

If the author's name sounds familiar it is because about ten years ago in
his early twenties he wrote a book in Hungarian Bekes Beketlenseg about the
Jewish communities of Bekes County. Dr Balogh is remarkable individual who
teaches various aspects of Judaism, the Holocaust and is active in the
preservation of Jewish heritage sites in Hungary. An English summary of his
dissertation might be forthcoming.

1. 18th Century Tombstones in Jewish Cemeteries in Hungary

Subject: 18th Century Tombstones in Jewish Cemeteries in Hungary

I came across a fascinating document on the website OR-ZSE.hu: the 339 page
doctoral dissertation on the above-noted topic by Balogh Istvan defended
summa cum laude on March 2019. This will be of interest only to those
researching forebears before the end of the 1700s, able to read Hungarian at
a fairly sophisticated level. The research is grouped into some geographic
areas of Hungary (it does not include the South East (the Great Plains) on
which area the author wrote an earlier book.

The cemeteries of some of the towns covered in the thesis are: Nagykanizsa,
Paks, Acs, Lovasbereny, Baja, Balassagyarmat, Miskolc, Mad, Mako,
Bodrogkeresztur and Obuda. For each cemetery there is a detailed, scholarly
analysis of the matzevot with names, design style and other detail. For this
part of the document, which is likely to be of most interest to
genealogists, a knowledge of Hebrew might suffice as the Hebrew writing
(along with the Hungarian) is included. There are photos of many of the
cemeteries along with memorial plaques (no names).

If the author's name sounds familiar it is because about ten years ago in
his early twenties he wrote a book in Hungarian Bekes Beketlenseg about the
Jewish communities of Bekes County. Dr Balogh is remarkable individual who
teaches various aspects of Judaism, the Holocaust and is active in the
preservation of Jewish heritage sites in Hungary. An English summary of his
dissertation might be forthcoming.
