Yizkor Book Project, July 2012 #rabbinic

Shalom,

I would like to hope that those of you who attended the IAJGS International
Conference returned home with their genealogy "tank" refilled and eager to
become involved in one of the JewishGen projects - for instance, let's say
the Yizkor Book Project <g> I'm quite sure that those of you who attended
the Yizkor Book Birds of a Feather meeting under the leadership of Jan
Meisels Allen are particularly inspired by her to become involved in our
project. Anyway, if you were or weren't at the conference and would like to
take some part in the Yizkor Book Project in some fashion - translating,
transliterating, coordinating, editing or... I would certainly like hear
from you and discuss what part of the project calls out to you.
Once again, I am pleased to let you know that a further book is now
completely online - "Rabka Four - Instruments of Genocide and Grand Larceny"
that was written by Robin O'Neil, who researches the Holocaust with insights
and skills he acquired in his years as police major crimes investigator at
Scotland Yard. Robin has generously donated a number of his manuscripts and
for those who are yet to be familiar with this unique research, I'm sure you
will find them a real eye-opener.

We are very fortunate to have a long-standing arrangement with Yad Vashem,
Jerusalem, which enables us to receive Excel files of necrologies extracted
from a wide range of Yizkor books. On our side, a team of conscientious
volunteers transliterate these lists into English and allow us to make them
available to the general public. This month, in particular, we've added in a
number of necrologies which come >from books that are not widely available
and are particularly important for researchers and, at the same time, allow
us to immortalize the names of our people who met their death during the
Holocaust. Later on, yet another team of conscientious volunteers led by Max
Heffler, convert these lists into a format which can be uploaded to our
necrology database and the help of all these volunteers is very much
appreciated and allow us this wide range of research options.

Now to facts and figures - as far as the July figures go, during this last
month we have added these 5 new projects:

Migration from France to Lwow #rabbinic

isak@bm.technion.ac.il
 

Dear Genners
During the middle ages there was a prosperous Jewish community in
Joigny-Sur-Yonne in France. In Hebrew this place was called Yona
or Yoni, and people coming >from this place "MeYona" or "MeYoni".
from the end of the 16-century one can find in Lwow (now Lviv,
Ukraine) a family of Jewish Rabbis and medical doctors with the
surname "MeYona". Does anybody have info concerning a possible
connection between the Medieval Jewish community in Joigny-Sur-
Yonne and the family in Lwow? Where can I find precise copies of
the grave stone inscriptions >from the old Lwow cemetery. I know
well the books "Anshei Shem" (by R' Shlomo Buber) and "Matzevet
Kodesh" (R' Gavriel Suchestow).
Thank you
Isak Gath, Haifa

Rashi grandson - Jechiel "The Posek" Ashkenazi Treves #rabbinic

Moishe Miller
 

Dear Group.

I have a question stimulated by some items I have seen on GENI.

Two of Rashi's daughters were Miriam and Yocheved.

1. Jechiel "The Posek" Ashkenazi Treves, as Curated by: Ofir Friedman,
is shown to be a g-g-g-g-grandson of Rashi via Miriam, thru Jechiel's
father, R' Matityahu Hagadol Treves (Jechiel -> Matityahu -> Moshe ->
Yehuda -> YomTov -> Miriam -> Rashi).

2. Furthermore, Jechiel, this time as Curated by: Yigal Burstein, is
also shown to be a g-g-grandson of Rashi via Yocheved, thru Jechiel's
mother, a daughter of RYbM (Jechiel -> girl -> Yitzchok (RYbM) ->
Yocheved -> Rashi). For illustration purposes I will refer to Jechiel's
mother as "Mrs Matityahu haGadol TREVES".

3. Jechiel "The Posek" Ashkenazi Treves, as Curated by: Ofir Friedman,
is also shown to be a g-grandson-in-law of Rashi, by being married to a
daughter of RYbM (Jechiel + girl -> Yitzchok (RYbM) -> Yocheved ->
Rashi). For illustration purposes I will refer to Jechiel's wife as "Mrs
Jechiel".

This would imply that two sisters, Mrs Jechiel and Mrs Matityahu haGadol
TREVES, both daughters of RYbM, married a father and son. In other
words, Jechiel married his mother's sister, an act prohibited by
Biblical law.

So, can anyone shed light or insight (aside >from stating GENI is not
recognized source material) on the ancestry of the wife, father and
mother of Jechiel "The Posek" Ashkenazi Treves?

Israel Genealogy Research Association announces a new version of its Beta Search Engine #scandinavia

Martha Lev-Zion <martha@...>
 

The Israel Genealogy Research Association (IGRA)
http://www.genealogy.org.il announces a new version of its Beta
Search Engine for the All Israel Database (AID)
http://genealogy.org.il/aidsearch/ allowing you to search names in
Hebrew or Latin letters. All databases include the transliteration of
the names. Double names are split into separate fields. The search
engine checks all fields that are names. First and last names and the
name of the Database appear in both Hebrew and English. The rest of
the information is in the language of the database. The accompanying
scans of the documents are not attached yet to the records.
While we are in this time of transition (our new search engine is
currently being developed) we have added five new databases and have
had to temporarily remove access to three others.
The new databases:
Rehavia Address Book June 1935 - This address book was found in the
collection of the Goldstein-Goren Diaspora Center. It was published by
the "Rehavia" Mutual Benefit Society Committee and was sold for 25
Eretz Israel mil. It includes people's names, addresses and
occupations.
Members in Agricultural Organizations in Petah Tikvah 1931-1936 - A
list of 1,802 members in agricultural organizations during the years
1931-6. The collection of documents is >from the Oded Yarkoni Petah

A list of 1,282 candidates for the 1st Knesset published in Yalkut
HaPirsumim (the official publication of the government of Israel) on
January 19, 1949.
Practical Nurses 1951-52 - A list of 169 pratical nurses, where they
studied and when they passed their exam. The list is a composite of a
number of lists published in Yalkut HaPirsumim.
List of Persons Authorized to Act as Lawyers in Civil Courts in 1956 -
A list of 1,544 authorized lawyers for the civil courts published in
Yalkut HaPirsumim on various dates in 1956.
You can now search through 41,000 entries. Many more databases will
be added in the coming weeks. Still others are being prepared.
IGRA welcomes all who can help with them.

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Israel Genealogy Research Association announces a new version of its Beta Search Engine #ukraine

Hinda Solomon
 

The Israel Genealogy Research Association (IGRA) http://www.genealogy.org.il 
 announces a new version of its Beta Search Engine for the All Israel Database (AID) http://geneaology.org.il/aidsearch/ allowing you to search names in
Hebrew or Latin letters.  All databases include the transliteration of
the names.  Double names are split into separate fields.  The search
engine checks all fields that are names. First and last names and the
name of the Database appear in both Hebrew and English.  The rest of
the information is in the language of the database.  The accompanying
scans of the documents are not attached yet to the records.
While we are in this time of transition (our new search engine is
currently being developed) we have added five new databases and have
had to temporarily remove access to three others.

The new databases:

Rehavia Address Book June 1935 - This address book was found in the
collection of the Goldstein-Goren Diaspora Center. It was published by
the “Rehavia” Mutual Benefit Society Committee and was sold for 25
Eretz Israel mil. It includes people’s names, addresses and
occupations.

Members in Agricultural Organizations in Petah Tikvah 1931-1936 - A
list of 1,802 members in agricultural organizations during the years
1931-6. The collection of documents is >from the Oded Yarkoni Petah
Tikva History Archive .

List of Candidates for the First Knesset (Constituent Assembly) 1949 -
A list of 1,282 candidates for the 1st  Knesset published in Yalkut
HaPirsumim (the official publication of the government of Israel) on
January 19, 1949.

Practical Nurses 1951-52 - A list of 169 pratical nurses, where they
studied and when they passed their exam. The list is a composite of a
number of lists published in Yalkut HaPirsumim.

List of Persons Authorized to Act as Lawyers in Civil Courts in 1956 -
A list of 1,544 authorized lawyers for the civil courts published in
Yalkut HaPirsumim on various dates in 1956.
You can now search through 41,000 entries.  Many more databases will
be added in the coming weeks. Still others are being prepared.
