Klepper burials in Iasi #romania

Michael Moritz
 

Dear Klepper researchers,

I have taken the time to go through the JOWBR database and compile all
the burials of Kleppers (and all variants [Klapper, Cleper, etc]) in
Iasi listed in the database. There are 71 people, with dates of death
from 1883-1969. I have included all the material shown in the JOWBR
database and have put this into a neatly organized excel file, which I
would gladly send to anyone interested in the material. If so, please
contact me directly. Thanks.

[USA] Update on California SB 71 #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

I recently posted to this listserve about CA SB 71 which would amend the
California Public Records Act to make complying with requests for records
voluntary on the part of the local government agency. The bill without any
public hearings or input passed both houses of the legislature over the
weekend. You might finds of interest this article >from the Sacramento Bee
which gives some background to the bill-to save the state money and not have
to pay the local agency for producing the records:

http://www.sacbee.com/2013/06/17/5503764/bill-would-let-calif-cities-decide.html.


( MOD: http://tinyurl.com/kworxg9 )

While the California League of Cities states they will continue to
provide records the California State Association of Counties is not
mentioned and most vital records are obtained >from the county registrars
offices. This bill not only affect vital records but other agencies with
public record such as fire, health, water and more.

Headstone Repair in Vienna #general

Palekaiko
 

I have many family members buried at the Zentralfriedhof in Vienna.
The years of neglect have taken their toll on most of the headstones.
Some should be replaced and other need some attention. Of those who
will read this, if there are recommendations as to who I might contact
regarding the repairs/replacements I mentioned above, please contact
me via privately.

Thank you,

Announcing Schedule for Linking Lublin PSA Images to JRI-Poland Index #general

RobinnM@...
 

JRI-Poland is pleased to announce the schedule for the posting
of digital images of Jewish vital records online >from the holdings
of the Lublin branch of the Polish State Archives.

The Lublin branch holds the registers for the most towns with Jewish
records in Poland. It was the first to acquire sophisticated digitizing
equipment in 2005 and has been steadily scanning its holdings ever
since. We are most indebted to Director Piotr Dymmel and the staff
of the Lublin branch for this significant achievement.

End of June 2013: 48 towns (Annopol to Lubartow, not including Lublin)
Oct. 2013: 36 towns (Lukow to Zolkiewka)
Dec. 2013: City of Lublin

As JRI-Poland previously announced:

Over the next 4 to 5 years, the Polish State Archives will digitize
all vital records (Jewish and non-Jewish) and make them available
on the PSA National Digital Archives (NDA) or Regional
Archive website. There will be no charge for directly accessing
actual records of your ancestors and family.

Linking JRI-Poland search results to digital images.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
When the JRI-Poland search results have been linked to the
record images it will be possible for researchers to click on
the image icon associated with the record and immediately
view the actual record for his/her ancestors.

But...there are more than 300,000 record entries to be linked
to digital images so there is much work to be done first.

Researchers with an interest in this project are invited to join
the JRI-Poland Lublin Archives "linking team." You do not
need to be able to read Polish or Russian. The only experience
needed is a familiarity with Excel along with a desire to
contribute your efforts to this important task.

To volunteer, please contact Robinn Magid at RobinnM@aol.com

The 1888 Disna District Family List #belarus

Howard Margol
 

The 1888 Disna District Family List has just been translated by Litvak SIG
and it consists of 4,097 records. Many towns and villages in the Disna
District are included as well as many tiny villages and estates where only a
few Jewish families lived. The majority of the places listed are in today's
Belarus

Many of the records include not only where they lived but where they were
registered as well as information about family members.

Many researchers may discover that their ancestors lived in a tiny shtetl
outside of a large town or village rather than in the town itself.

If you are interested in this list, please contact me personally and not
to the Digest.

The Disna District Research Group (DRG) is presently lacking a
Coordinator.
If you are willing to be the Disna District Volunteer Coordinator, please
let me know that as well.

Need help translating Russian documents #lodz #poland

Apollo Israel <apollo@...>
 

I have posted five Russian documents on Viewmate and would be grateful for
any help in translating some details in them. Four of them are deaths,
apparently of children, and I am particularly interested in the ages of the
deceased, their dates and places of death, and if any cause of death is
stated. The fifth is a birth registration in which both the child's name and
the mother's seem to be Chana, which is highly unusual for a Jewish family,
and I am wondering why this might occur (no, the mother did not die in
childbirth -- she went on to have other children later). The names in the
documents are BULWAR, PELTZMAN, BENDKOWSKA and KRYSKA, and the towns
involved are Lodz, Rawa Mazowiecka and maybe Sieradz.

A new book: SELECTED LECTURES ON GENEALOGY: AN INTRODUCTION TO SCIENTIFIC TOOLS, Ed. Daniel Wagner #poland

Ami Elyasaf
 

We are happy to have on our shelf a new book entitled: SELECTED
LECTURES ON GENEALOGY: AN INTRODUCTION TO SCIENTIFIC TOOLS, edited by
Professor Daniel Wagner >from the Weizmann Institute of Science
(Rehovot, Israel).

Prof. Wagner is a member of the INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE for JEWISH
GENEALOGY and PAUL JACOBI CENTER (IIJG).

This book is primarily designed as a introductory guide in the form of
a collection of basic articles, and can be used as a reference to find
scientific methods suitable to a genealogical pursuit. The aim of the
book, which should be appropriate for self-teaching, is to prepare the
student genealogist for a basic understanding of the scientific
operations relevant to genealogical problems, and to enable him/her to
communicate successfully with scientists in case help is needed. In
this respect, this book is the first of its kind.

It seems inevitable today that selected scientific tools belonging to
the "hard" sciences should be part of a future curriculum in the
teaching of genealogy. Research in modern genealogy will not progress
and develop without them. Many more topics exist beyond the set of
papers presented in this booklet, which could have been included and
may appear in a future update.
