Does anyone know the correct spelling/name for the above location? I
couldn't find anything in Jewishgen's town finder or Gazetter.
My maternal great grandparents were buried in Brooklyn NY's Washington
Cemetery: Congregation Ahava Achim Anshei Tamashauer Petrokow
(Piotrkow Trybunalski) plots. I am trying to figure out exactly which
town they came from. My grandmother said "Warsaw", which is about 80
miles >from P/T, according to the Gazetter.
Thank you,

My grandfather, Rachmiel FELMAN, travelled >from Kamenets-Podolsk,

Does anyone have experience of finding/using Holland-America Line

Yizkor Book Project, February 2018 #france

Shalom,

I am quite excited to let you know about the highlights of the Yizkor
Book Project during February 2018.

So why am I excited? Well, to begin we uploaded the final translations
of no less than three projects:

- Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine (Yekaterinoslav-Dnepropetrovsk Memorial Book).
This project was coordinated by Marilyn Levinson and an enormous amount
of thanks goes out to volunteers, Sara Mages and Yocheved Klausner, who
were responsible for translating the bulk of this book.
- Lenin, Belarus (The community of Lenin; memorial book). Sadly, the
coordinator of this project, Sanford A. Kaplan z"l, is no longer with us.
Over the years, both professional and volunteer translators contributed
to this project that he initiated and once again, Sara and Yocheved
played an integral role in seeing it through to its successful completion.
- Vishnevets, Ukraine (Memorial book to the martyrs of Vishnevets who
perished in the Nazi Holocaust) This project was coordinated by the
remarkable duo of Ellen Garshick and Ronald D. Doctor of the Kremenets
District Research Group. They already have a number of other completed
projects under their belt and we salute them for their dedication in
seeing yet another complete book become available online.

Last month, I would like to mention a number of new entries that have
been added in. Some of the entries concern the agricultural communities
that existed in the Ukraine at the beginning of the 19th century which
make for interesting and enlightening reading. In addition, I would also
like to point out an entry that was added about the Cluj District >from
the "Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Romania". This entry, in
particular, is of significance in that it covers quite a few small
communities >from that area, information about which is often difficult
to find.

I should also note the welcome contribution of Esther Weinschelbaum who
has voluntarily translated into Hebrew, the Yiddish sections >from the
Yizkor book of Wojslawice, Poland. This enables our Hebrew readers to
glean the information and the stories >from the parts of the book that
they would otherwise be unable to read and we thank Esther for the many
such translations she has provided for us.

Again, this past month, a new book was published by the Yizkor Book in
Print Project and they are deserving of our grateful thanks. The book,
"Memorial Book of Nowy-Dwor", is a translation of the Yizkor book of
Nowy Dwor Mazowiecki, Poland. The number of published books continues to
grow and as we complete projects, as we have done in the past month, they
join as possible candidates for publishing. We do see a growing interest
in having and holding these unique books and they are even a unique gift
idea for the coming Pesach/Passover holiday. If you are interested in
seeing what books are available for purchase, please see the link at the
end of this report.

Which reminds me, if we don't "speak" before then, I do wish you and your
families a very memorable, warm and significant Pesach/Passover holiday.

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

Shalom,

I am quite excited to let you know about the highlights of the Yizkor
Book Project during February 2018.

So why am I excited? Well, to begin we uploaded the final translations
of no less than three projects:

- Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine (Yekaterinoslav-Dnepropetrovsk Memorial Book).
This project was coordinated by Marilyn Levinson and an enormous amount
of thanks goes out to volunteers, Sara Mages and Yocheved Klausner, who
were responsible for translating the bulk of this book.
- Lenin, Belarus (The community of Lenin; memorial book). Sadly, the
coordinator of this project, Sanford A. Kaplan z"l, is no longer with us.
Over the years, both professional and volunteer translators contributed
to this project that he initiated and once again, Sara and Yocheved
played an integral role in seeing it through to its successful completion.
- Vishnevets, Ukraine (Memorial book to the martyrs of Vishnevets who
perished in the Nazi Holocaust) This project was coordinated by the
remarkable duo of Ellen Garshick and Ronald D. Doctor of the Kremenets
District Research Group. They already have a number of other completed
projects under their belt and we salute them for their dedication in
seeing yet another complete book become available online.

Last month, I would like to mention a number of new entries that have
been added in. Some of the entries concern the agricultural communities
that existed in the Ukraine at the beginning of the 19th century which
make for interesting and enlightening reading. In addition, I would also
like to point out an entry that was added about the Cluj District >from
the "Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Romania". This entry, in
particular, is of significance in that it covers quite a few small
communities >from that area, information about which is often difficult
to find.

I should also note the welcome contribution of Esther Weinschelbaum who
has voluntarily translated into Hebrew, the Yiddish sections >from the
Yizkor book of Wojslawice, Poland. This enables our Hebrew readers to
glean the information and the stories >from the parts of the book that
they would otherwise be unable to read and we thank Esther for the many
such translations she has provided for us.

Again, this past month, a new book was published by the Yizkor Book in

Gesher Galicia SIG #Galicia Yizkor Book Project, February 2018 #galicia

MODERATOR NOTE: Please see especially the references below to two towns
that were in Galicia -- Ozerna (Jezierna) and Tovste (Tluste), Ukraine.

===

Shalom,

I am quite excited to let you know about the highlights of the Yizkor
Book Project during February 2018.

So why am I excited? Well, to begin we uploaded the final
translations of no less than three projects:

- Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine (Yekaterinoslav-Dnepropetrovsk Memorial Book).
This project was coordinated by Marilyn Levinson and an enormous amount
of thanks goes out to volunteers, Sara Mages and Yocheved Klausner, who
were responsible for translating the bulk of this book.

- Lenin, Belarus (The community of Lenin; memorial book).
Sadly, the coordinator of this project, Sanford A. Kaplan z"l, is no
longer with us. Over the years, both professional and volunteer
translators contributed to this project that he initiated and once
again, Sara and Yocheved played an integral role in seeing it through
to its successful completion.

- Vishnevets, Ukraine (Memorial book to the martyrs of Vishnevets
who perished in the Nazi Holocaust)
This project was coordinated by the remarkable duo of Ellen Garshick
and Ronald D. Doctor of the Kremenets District Research Group. They
already have a number of other completed projects under their belt
and we salute them for their dedication in seeing yet another
complete book become available online.

Last month, I would like to mention a number of new entries that have
been added in. Some of the entries concern the agricultural
communities that existed in the Ukraine at the beginning of the 19th
century which make for interesting and enlightening reading. In
addition, I would also like to point out an entry that was added about
the Cluj District >from the "Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in
Romania". This entry, in particular, is of significance in that it covers
quite a few small communities >from that area, information about
which is often difficult to find.

I should also note the welcome contribution of Esther Weinschelbaum
who has voluntarily translated into Hebrew, the Yiddish sections >from
the Yizkor book of Wojslawice, Poland. This enables our Hebrew
readers to glean the information and the stories >from the parts of the
book that they would otherwise be unable to read and we thank
Esther for the many such translations she has provided for us.

Again, this past month, a new book was published by the Yizkor Book
in Print Project and they are deserving of our grateful thanks. The
book, "Memorial Book of Nowy-Dwor", is a translation of the Yizkor
book of Nowy Dwor Mazowiecki, Poland. The number of published
books continues to grow and as we complete projects, as we have
done in the past month, they join as possible candidates for
publishing. We do see a growing interest in having and holding these
unique books and they are even a unique gift idea for the coming
Pesach/Passover holiday. If you are interested in seeing what books
are available for purchase, please see the link at the end of this
report.

Which reminds me, if we don't "speak" before then, I do wish you and
your families a very memorable, warm and significant
Pesach/Passover holiday.

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

Rebbe Mendel of Rymanow #rabbinic

Raphael Thurm
 

Shalom,

My family has an oral tradition that we are descended >from the
Chassidic leader Rebbe Menachem Mendel of Rymanow (1745-1815). The
Rebbe's family surname was Turim (also Torem), which is how we spell
our surname in Hebrew and Yiddish. I have been researching all the
known children and descendants of Rebbe Mendel in order to find my
family's missing link. Is anyone doing research on him?

Thank you in advance,
