Research Recommendations #warsaw #poland

admin@...
 

I am planning a genealogical research trip to New York and
Philadelphia. I am most interested in late 18th and early 19th
century Warszawa records listing individuals in the Jewish community.
e.g., school lists, organizations, etc. Can anyone make
recommendations as to which libraries are most likely to have these
types of materials. Thank you

rescue Yiddish literature earned him a MacArthur Foundation Genius Grant
in 1985.

The remaining four and a half days will feature 250 programs on a rich and
varied range of topics. The program Committee is putting the final touches
on these and will announce them shortly.

Looking for ROSENBERG in Israel #warsaw #poland

rosies@...
 

Hello
I am looking for the descendants of YISRAEL ROSENBERG, son of Avraham Chaim
Rosenberg and Lea Khana. He was born late 1880's or 1890's, came to Israel
possibly before WW2 and lived at 31 Pines Street, Tel Aviv in 1952
Also looking for descendants of ESTHER HERSHFINGER / ROSENBERG who I think
was Yisrael's sister, born around the same time a she was, and lived at 63
Herzl Street, Tel Aviv in 1956.
I believe these people were the only survivors of their immediate family and
would have been my great uncle and great aunt. Any help would be gratefully
accepted.

Yizkor Book Project, March 2013 #rabbinic

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Whilst you munch on your matzo, I will provide you with something to read
about what happened in the Yizkor Book Project during March.

For a start, as I predicted in previous reports, there were a number of
projects that were completed this month.

- Dotnuva, Lithuania (Letters >from Dotnuva)
- Kremenets, Ukraine (Memorial book of Krzemieniec)
- Szczuczyn, Poland (>from the Inferno Back to Life)

The completion of the Kremenets book, in particular, comes after many years
of dedicated coordination by Ron Doctor and Ellen Garshick and quite a few
volunteers who deserve a deal of thanks for their splendid translations. The
result of all this team's efforts has now been rewarded by the placement of
the whole book online but they certainly aren't resting on their laurels and
the translations of other Kremenets Yizkor Books continues on with great
earnest.

It is also important for me to note the completion of the Szczuczyn project
which is a personal memoir belong to Itzhak Wertman z"l, who sadly passed
away quite recently. I had the honor of being in contact this fine gentleman
over many years and, as with many of the Holocaust survivors, he saw the
great importance of making the Yizkor Book material readily available to the
present generation and those to come. We are deeply indebted to him for his
participation with the YB Project.

Now in order for our project to continue and expand, we are always on the
lookout for volunteers to help out in the wide scope of activities the
Yizkor Book Project involves. So, if you are able to translate >from Hebrew
or Yiddish, edit translated material or help type up English pages, your
assistance in these fields would be most welcome and I would be very pleased
to hear >from you.

Now to facts and figures for March, during this last month we have added
these 2 new projects:

- Dunajska Streda, Slovakia (A Memorial to the Jewish Community of
Dunaszerdahely)
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Dunajska_Streda/Dunajska_Streda.html

- Gniewoszow, Poland (Memorial Book Gniewashow)
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Gniewoszow/Gniewoszow.html

Added in 11 new entries:

- Cimpulung la Tisa, Romania (The Marmaros Book; In Memory of 160 Jewish
Communities) http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/maramures/mar067.html

- Desesti, Romania (The Marmaros Book; In Memory of 160 Jewish Communities)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/maramures/mar069.html

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Whilst you munch on your matzo, I will provide you with something to read
about what happened in the Yizkor Book Project during March.

For a start, as I predicted in previous reports, there were a number of
projects that were completed this month.

- Dotnuva, Lithuania (Letters >from Dotnuva)
- Kremenets, Ukraine (Memorial book of Krzemieniec)
- Szczuczyn, Poland (>from the Inferno Back to Life)

The completion of the Kremenets book, in particular, comes after many years
of dedicated coordination by Ron Doctor and Ellen Garshick and quite a few
volunteers who deserve a deal of thanks for their splendid translations. The
result of all this team's efforts has now been rewarded by the placement of
the whole book online but they certainly aren't resting on their laurels and
the translations of other Kremenets Yizkor Books continues on with great
earnest.

It is also important for me to note the completion of the Szczuczyn project
which is a personal memoir belong to Itzhak Wertman z"l, who sadly passed
away quite recently. I had the honor of being in contact this fine gentleman
over many years and, as with many of the Holocaust survivors, he saw the
great importance of making the Yizkor Book material readily available to the
present generation and those to come. We are deeply indebted to him for his
participation with the YB Project.

Now in order for our project to continue and expand, we are always on the
lookout for volunteers to help out in the wide scope of activities the
Yizkor Book Project involves. So, if you are able to translate >from Hebrew
or Yiddish, edit translated material or help type up English pages, your
assistance in these fields would be most welcome and I would be very pleased
to hear >from you.

Now to facts and figures for March, during this last month we have added
these 2 new projects:

- Dunajska Streda, Slovakia (A Memorial to the Jewish Community of
Dunaszerdahely)

Yizkor Book Project, March 2013 #sephardic

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Whilst you munch on your matzo, I will provide you with something to read
about what happened in the Yizkor Book Project during March.

For a start, as I predicted in previous reports, there were a number of
projects that were completed this month.

- Dotnuva, Lithuania (Letters >from Dotnuva)
- Kremenets, Ukraine (Memorial book of Krzemieniec)
- Szczuczyn, Poland (>from the Inferno Back to Life)

The completion of the Kremenets book, in particular, comes after many years
of dedicated coordination by Ron Doctor and Ellen Garshick and quite a few
volunteers who deserve a deal of thanks for their splendid translations. The
result of all this team's efforts has now been rewarded by the placement of
the whole book online but they certainly aren't resting on their laurels and
the translations of other Kremenets Yizkor Books continues on with great
earnest.

It is also important for me to note the completion of the Szczuczyn project
which is a personal memoir belong to Itzhak Wertman z"l, who sadly passed
away quite recently. I had the honor of being in contact this fine gentleman
over many years and, as with many of the Holocaust survivors, he saw the
great importance of making the Yizkor Book material readily available to the
present generation and those to come. We are deeply indebted to him for his
participation with the YB Project.

Now in order for our project to continue and expand, we are always on the
lookout for volunteers to help out in the wide scope of activities the
Yizkor Book Project involves. So, if you are able to translate >from Hebrew
or Yiddish, edit translated material or help type up English pages, your
assistance in these fields would be most welcome and I would be very pleased
to hear >from you.

Now to facts and figures for March, during this last month we have added
these 2 new projects:

Dunaszerdahely)

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Whilst you munch on your matzo, I will provide you with something to read
about what happened in the Yizkor Book Project during March.

For a start, as I predicted in previous reports, there were a number of
projects that were completed this month.

- Dotnuva, Lithuania (Letters >from Dotnuva)
- Kremenets, Ukraine (Memorial book of Krzemieniec)
- Szczuczyn, Poland (>from the Inferno Back to Life)

The completion of the Kremenets book, in particular, comes after many years
of dedicated coordination by Ron Doctor and Ellen Garshick and quite a few
volunteers who deserve a deal of thanks for their splendid translations. The
result of all this team's efforts has now been rewarded by the placement of
the whole book online but they certainly aren't resting on their laurels and
the translations of other Kremenets Yizkor Books continues on with great
earnest.

It is also important for me to note the completion of the Szczuczyn project
which is a personal memoir belong to Itzhak Wertman z"l, who sadly passed
away quite recently. I had the honor of being in contact this fine gentleman
over many years and, as with many of the Holocaust survivors, he saw the
great importance of making the Yizkor Book material readily available to the
present generation and those to come. We are deeply indebted to him for his
participation with the YB Project.

Now in order for our project to continue and expand, we are always on the
lookout for volunteers to help out in the wide scope of activities the
Yizkor Book Project involves. So, if you are able to translate >from Hebrew
or Yiddish, edit translated material or help type up English pages, your
assistance in these fields would be most welcome and I would be very pleased
to hear >from you.

Now to facts and figures for March, during this last month we have added
these 2 new projects:

Dunaszerdahely)
