Yizkor Books in Print #hungary

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I am extremely excited to announce the "kick off" of a new Yizkor Book
Project initiative called "Yizkor Books in Print". The idea behind this
project is to make hard copies of books that have been completely translated
in the Yizkor Book Project and make these books be available for purchase by
the descendants of these communities, university and synagogue libraries and
museums.

This project could not have come into existence had it not been for Joel
Alpert who has kindly agreed to be the Project Advisor for this enterprise.
The next stage is to look for people to fill the tasks required in this
project. If you have a background in the editing and graphics fields and,
especially, if you have had previous experience in preparing books for
publishing, we'd be very pleased to hear >from you.

If you are interested in receiving further details of the people needed for
the project, please click on this link
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html and if you feel able to assist,
contact Joel using the link appearing on this page.

Yours,
One very excited Yizkor Book Project Manager,

Rumanian descent #romania

Carol Cohen
 

Dear Genners:

After almost 30 years of geneological research, and only a little over
20 years on the Internet, I have just discovered that my Grandfather,
who grew up in Wolica a shtetl suburb of Podjace, was actually born in
Rumania. I have no clue as to where.
I was checking all of the US censuses >from 1910 on, and most said
Austria Hungary.
Only one said Rumania. My grandmother called him her Rumanische. So
now I know why. I know he was of Rabbinical descent, but even though
I have the names for 5 generations back, I cannot find a match, and
while his mother's maiden name was Konrad, I do not know his any of
his grandmothers' maiden names.

His name was Avram Abba Waldmann. He dropped the second "n" in the US
and many called him Abe. I have searched all the data bases I can
think of. I know he was born in the 1870's. He died in Dallas, TX
in 1948. His father was Shmuel Waldman and I think he died in
Wolica, however I cannot find a death or birth record either there or
in Podjace. His mother was Nanette (?) Konrad Waldman, nor can I find
her either. Her brother was Hersh Konrad and his descendents live in
Israel. They do not know any thing about the Waldman family.
Shmuel's parents were Rachel and Zelig Waldman. I do not find them in
Wolica-Podjace.

Any ideas.

I would be very grateful for your help.

Thank you,

Carol Waldman Cohen

Lodz, Poland Cemetery databases #poland

Roni S. Liebowitz
 

I would like to expand on the information previously posted by Nolan
Altman, JOWBR Coordinator, on the updated Lodz Cemtery Database. The
JRI-Poland/JewishGen joint project indexing the burial registers
obtained >from the "Organization of Former Residents of Lodz in Israel"
has been completed. Approximately 70,500 records were indexed and added
to both the JRI-Poland database and JOWBR. This data is for the New
Lodz Cemetery

For those researching their roots in Lodz, there are several
overlapping Lodz New Cemetery databases and it is recommended that all
be searched as part of your research.


1. The database complied by the Lodz Jews Heritage Foundation which
can be found at
http://www.jewishlodzcemetery.org/EN/CemeteryPlan/Default.aspx
It is recommended that you use Steven Morse's "One Step" search site
for ease of use.
http://www.stevemorse.org/lodz/lodz.html

2. The Tahara Boards database >from the Lodz Cemetery Purification room
can be searched at
http://www.zchor.org/lodz/boards.htm
and on JOWBR at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/

3. The Lodz Ghetto Cemetery Burial List which was compiled by
Yad LeZahava is searchable on JOWBR and on the Museum of Family History
http://www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/

JRI-Poland has a searchable database >from the Old Cemetery Chevra
Kadisha List. http://www.jri-poland.org

Burials in the Old Cemetery began in 1811 and while the cemetery closed
in 1892, burials continued until 1922. This cemetery was destroyed.
The New Cemetery on Bracka Street was established in 1892 and contains
over 160,000 burials.

Good luck with your research!
