Yizkor Book Project, September 2010 #latinamerica

bounce-2103898-772964@...
 

Shalom,

Well the holidays are over (for now) which seems to hint that we should get
back to work... Still, I don't think that the Yizkor Book Project should be
ashamed of our activity over the last month. I was particularly happy to see
the renewal of a number of long standing projects and I hope this trend
continues.

Note that the YB Project exists through a great number of volunteers who
translate, transliterate, transcribe and edit material which becomes part of
the various translation projects and I send out my deep appreciation for the
very heartwarming dedication and involvement of these many wonderful people
in the YB Project.

Now to figures. During this last month we have added these 4 new projects:

- Bol'shoy Zhelutsk, Ukraine (Memorial Book of the Community of Zoludzk)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/bolshoy_zhelutsk/bolshoy_zhelutsk.html

Stuart Rosenblatt - The Keeper of the Faith #unitedkingdom

louise@...
 

This has been sent to me by RTE - Ireland's National Radio and Television
Service - and may be of interest to members of this discussion group.
Ireland is included in Jewish Communities and Records United Kingdom.

To be broadcast Saturday 9th October at 6.05pm and repeated on Sunday 10th
October at 7pm

RTÉ Radio 1
RTÉ RADIO 1?S DOCUMENTARY ON ONE
Stuart Rosenblatt ? The Keeper of the Faith

This radio documentary maps and explores Jewish Ireland, and our guide is
Dubliner Stuart Rosenblatt.

Enter the world of Jewish Ireland past and present with genealogist Stuart
Rosenblatt as guide. Stuart is the author of the 16-volume Rosenblatt
Series, the most comprehensive collection of genealogical material ever
compiled on an entire Jewish community in any country.

Stuart's database contains details on over 44,000 people and their family
relationships. These and other facts you'd expect, and might even find
elsewhere - but Rosenblatt's work usually takes a step or two further.

Rosenblatt devotes "two weeks out of every one" to this unpaid,
unacknowledged work. His daughter Sonia tells us how family life has
suffered. As a businessman, Stuart is first to admit it's an expensive
hobby.

He got the genealogy bug fifteen years ago with a curiosity about his
mother's family, the Jacksons. We discover the Jackson family had roots in
a village called Ackmene, and this tiny Lithuanian village was the one most
common place of origin for Irish Jews. They did not leave and arrive in
Ireland en masse when their migrations began in the 1880s - no one really
knows why they arrived here but their descendants give us a few clues.

So the story of Jewish Ireland is the story of a global village called
Ackmene. It's a quintessentially Irish story - where everybody knows
everybody else - and there are nothing like six degrees of separation. It's
the story of a fast disappearing world. Rosenblatt estimates the community,
those who come to Shul (Synagogue), at no more than 380 with the majority
from the older generation.
Anyone can access Stuart's work in the National Archive or National Library
through the 16 printed volumes of the Rosenblatt Series, which he has
donated to the nation. And the work continues with Stuart desperately
looking for some missing bits of his jigsaw, such as several volumes of
Alien Registration Files >from the start of the 20th century and details of
Jewish school children in schools records all over Ireland.

Produced by Clare Cronin and funded by the Broadcasting Authority of
Ireland's Sound and Vision funding Scheme.
Broadcast Saturday 9th October at 6.05pm and repeated on Sunday 10th October
at 7pm

Town - Tufecht? Tufesht? #romania

Barbara Sontz
 

Hello, ROM-SIG -

Can someone help me to identify a place name? Two members of the
same family listed their Romanian birth town as Tufecht and Tufesht
on their US WWI draft registration records.

The extended family comes >from Iasi and Codaesti. Some identify
their Romanian residence as Tibana, which I believe is some sort
of political or geographical subdivision of Iasi.

Could the town possibly be Trifesti? I see several locations with
that name in Romania and Moldava. One of them is identified as part
of Iasi county.

Many thanks for any help you can give me.

Updated posting: Searching GOLDFINE, SHOUR families from Britchany & Sokiryany,Bessarabia/Moldova; MAYEROVITCH from Botosani, Romania #romania

srhlsr@...
 

I recently posted a similar message to this one; I just want to update
it with information I found >from notes that I've kept on the family.

I am researching the GOLDFINE, SHOUR families >from Bessarabia/Moldova.
I recently found the town names of Brtchan & Sokiryany. Sorry, I'm not
sure which of the above 2 families came >from which town. I do think
that having the towns' names might still be of help!

I'm also researching the MAYEROVITCH family >from Botosani, Romania.

I don't know very much about my GOLDFINE , SHOUR ancestors; I'll ask
you if the following details are familar:

Sarah nee GOLDFINE, married Moshe SHOUR. They lived in
Bessarabia/Moldova.

Sarah passed away in Sept. 1963 in Canada. Moshe passed away in
Bessarabia/Moldova; sorry, no date is available.

Re names of their parents: I don't know the names of Sarah's parents.
Moshe's parents were: Yitzchak & Devorah (maiden name
unknown.)Apparently, Moshe had a sister Ethel.(Sorry, I know nothing
about her.)

Moshe and Sarah had 7 children: David, Harry (Aaron), Lily (Laika), Sam,
(Shloime), Yitzchok, Eda, Abe (Avrohom Hersh).

Here's the info I have re my MAYEROVITCH ancestors (Hopefully,
readers can help fill in more!):

Anne MAYEROVITCH , married Abraham SHOUR; She was born in
Botosani, Romania, he was born in Bessarabia/Moldova; They both moved
to Montreal, Canada. I don't know if they married in Canada or not.
Both Anne & Abraham passed away in Montreal, Canada.

Anne had the following siblings:

Rosie, Ida, Sam, Minnie, Leah

Their parents were: Isser, Obm, & Faigeh, nee HELLER, Obm.
(Faigeh had a sister Chana.)

Is any of the above familiar? Can anybody "fill in" further info/add
more names, etc.?

Please reply & let me know. Thank you.

extracting the important names (e.g., parents), dates and towns
mentioned in each.

Birth record of great-great grandfather Isaac Greenbaum (1871) from
Konion, Poland
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=16817

Death record of my great-great-great grandfather Nuta Chaskiel
Radoszycki (1883) >from Piotrkow, Poland
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=16819

Birth record of great-great grandmother Beila Newman (1873) >from Lomza,
Poland
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=16820

I also have 6 additional images that are too large for upload to
ViewMate. If you are willing to help, I would be happy to email them
and would be extremely appreciative. Thanks!

KORB->YUDELEVITCH (Salakas) #lithuania

Igor Schein <igorschein@...>
 

I am researching surname KORB >from Salakas.
I came across an 1906 Ellis Island record which has
Mendel YUDELEVICH and Fanny KORB going to Cleveland, OH where
the their brother/uncle Louis YUDELEVICH lived.
On 1887 Salakas family list I see a family of Sholom Shakhna
YUDELEVICH, who had transferred to Salakas >from Dusetos in 1884.
Mendel is one of his sons.

Now I go back to Cleveland records. At least 3 of Shakhna
YUDELEVICH's sons lived in Cleveland area in 1910: Solomon (Zalman?),
Louis(?), and Mendel (later became Max).
Then they drop off the census - only Max is listed in 1930 census. I
am quite sure that the other 2 brothers changed their surname by then,
but I don't know what to.

It looks like YUDELEVICH is a well-researched name (30+ jewishgen
researchers alone). I was wondering if anyone knows the family I am
talking about. My goal is obviously to track down Fanny KORB, but I
couldn't find her in any US records since her arrival. At the very
least, I'd like to understand how exactly she was a niece to the
YUDELEVICH brothers (none of their wives' maiden names was KORB, so
that puzzles me).

I've seen many different spellings in the US records:
YUDELOVICH, YUDELEWITZ, YUDELOWITZ, YUDELEVITZ, YUDELOVITZ etc.
They all point back to the original spelling YUDELEVICH.

Thanks,
Igor Schein

Re: Gyorgy DENES - Hungary to USA #general

Dear Cousins,

Rony Golan asked about Gyorgy DENES, who immigrated >from Hungary to the
U.S.A., and his wife Martha DENES. He knows their probable years and
locations of death.

Keep in mind that if this information is >from the Social Security Death
Index, the location given is not the place of death, but the residence at the
time of their death. Most people nowadays die close to home, especially when
they're very old, but if the monthly benefit was being sent to somebody else,
then even if they died at home, Social Security records may not show that.

With knowledge of the year and location, their death certificates can be
obtained >from the New York City Department of Health and the State of Florida
Department of Health, respectively. Information on how to obtain them >from
those sources is at http://www.nyc.gov/html/doh/html/vr/vrdappl.shtml and
http://www.doh.state.fl.us/planning_eval/vital_statistics/deaths.htm

The names of the cemetery and the informant of the personal information,
quite likely a family member, should be on the death certificates. Note that
the New York City Department of Health does not consider genealogy a valid
reason for requesting a death certificate, although I have obtained them by
stating I am a cousin, want to visit the deceased's grave, and nobody
remembers where it is. Their fee is $15. Florida is much more open about
death certficates - without the medical information, they are available to
anybody for $5.

Re: Naturalization for GIs in WWII #general

At least one of these camps, because of the large number of interned German
Jews, most of whom were highly educated, became almost a university graduate
school. The highly acclaimed Amadeus Quartet was formed there.
