Yizkor Book Project, May 2018 #france

Shalom,

It is always very gratifying to look back and see what accomplishments
we've managed to achieve in the Yizkor Book Project over the previous
month. I would now like to outline some of these accomplishments:

To begin with, in what has become a regular section of our monthly
report, once again, I am pleased to announce the completion of a
further 3 Yizkor Book projects and they are:

- Children Train - An additional book written by the indefatigable,
William Leibner, which was carefully edited by Erica S. Goldman-Brodie
and Toby Bird z”l. We are extremely indebted to receive this further
addition to our project.
- Czestochowa, Poland (The Jews of Czestochowa) - This book has been
the "baby" of Gloria Berkenstat Freund over quite a few years.
Together with the many other translation projects she works on, she
has managed to completely translate this extensive volume. Our deep
appreciation goes out to Gloria for the completion of this project
which joins a number of other books previously translated by her on
the Czestochowa community that we have online.
- Roman, Romania (The Jewish Community of Roman) A book that was
kindly translated by a number of volunteer translators and has been
meticulously edited and translations supplemented by Yocheved
Klausner, allowing us to present the completed volume online.

We now have 150 completely online and if you are "concerned" that we
soon won't have nothing to do, we do have a further 750 Yizkor book
projects that are work in progress, so there are huge challenges still
ahead of us. We are always looking out for volunteer assistance and
financial support in our endeavor to advance these projects and if you
are able to assist in any manner, I would be pleased to hear >from you.
In particular, I would like to hear >from you if you are knowledgeable
in Hebrew or Yiddish and have a background in editing and, most
importantly, are able to volunteer some time to the project, this
would be assistance that would definitely help us go forward.

And on regular sections, again, we have the honor of announcing the
publishing of two new books through the auspices of the Yizkor Books
in Print Project, bringing the total number of books published by this
group to 70 - a humble hats off to them!

- Memorial Book of 13 Shtetls of Galicia - Another book written by
William Leibner (yes, the name is now very familiar) that was
attentively edited by Ingrid Rockberger and covers 13 communities, not
all of which, previously had their own Yizkor book.
- There Was A Shtetl In Lithuania: Dusiat Reflected In Reminiscences -
A quite considerable volume (960 pages) dedicated to the community of
Dusiat (Dusetos) which was laboriously compiled by Sara Weiss-Slep and
further painstakingly edited and produced by Hedva Scop and Olga
Zabludoff.

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

We have added in one new book:

Monor) https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Monor/Monor.html

Is anyone able to direct me on how to find the original poster of this photo?

Thank you - birthplace variations in US Census forms #general

Julie Miller
 

What a helpful group! I want to say thank you to all of those on the list who took
the time to guide me. My posting on May 21 about birthplace variations in US Census
forms resulted in over 12 responses with multiple back-and-forth emails. Through
your emails, you've offered new ways of thinking about the census forms and
provided some follow-on research direction.

Since our daughter was married last weekend, I haven't had the
opportunity to do further research but believe me, I will! Gratefully,
Julie Miller

Researching: MILLER, BERNSTEIN, HURWITZ (and their various spellings)

Multiple Name Changes #dna

David Goldman
 

Hello everybody.
Although my paternal ancestral name in Ukraine was KRASINSKY I have been
unable to find any other Jews other than descendants of my great-grandfather
and his brothers who have or had the name Krasinsky back in Ukraine or even
a name very close to Krasinsky (other than names such as Korsunsky). There
are names I have come across even more unusual than Krasinsky, so this
situation is probably not an anomaly. Anyway, this has led me to wonder
whether in fact the name had previously been something other than Krasinsky,
although I realize that many Ashkenazi Jews didn't have last names before
the 19th century (many of course did, such as my maternal ancestral name of
Shapiro).

Now that I have done the FTDNA test and plugged into the WIRTH project, I
have been informed that my paternal line goes back to one Rabbi Yaakov son
of Yehuda WEIL in the 15th century. Now of course there are people even
today who still carry the name Weil. But I am wondering whether the name
KRASINSKY had in fact been adopted at some point in the 18th or 19th century
by possibly a single man called Weil.

Of course I assume there are many reasons why people were changing names
along the line long before reaching Ellis Island, even among those who *did*
have last names prior to the 19th century. Of course I am simply
hypothesizing, and have no evidence for any of this in relation to the names
Weil and Krasinsky.
I'd enjoy reading anything others may have to add to this enigma and whether
in fact I may be on to something.

Thanks,
David Goldman
