The Minsk YB Project
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/projectdesc/yb_minsk.html
has stalled because of a lack of funds.
As you can see at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/minsk/minsk.html
only a small fraction of the two-volume Minsk YB has been translated.

There are 2,813 researchers who are researching Minsk according to the JGFF.
With this large number,it is a disgrace that the Minsk YB has not been
completely translated.Please follow my lead and make a donation today
to the Minsk YB project. All you need to do is go to:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat
Scroll down to the Minsk YB and make a generous donation today.

Shalom,
Dave

Requesting Translation of BMD documents #ukraine

Dear Genners:
I have posted Polish and Ukrainian BMD records on Viewmate. I have

complete translation--word by word.
The numbers are 16015, 16017, 16018 and 16019.

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
Meryl Rizzotti

A Guidebook for Russian Document Researchers #ukraine

cmw521@...
 

Working with Russian Archival Documents: A Guide to Modern Handwriting,
Document Forms, Language Patterns, and Other Related Topics.
Olga E. Glagoleva.
(Centre for Russian and East European Studies, University of Toronto,
Toronto, 1998), 114 pp., ill.

This guide book will be of interest to scholars and students of Slavic
studies in a range of disciplines such as history, political science,
sociology, literature, linguistics, etc. who intend to carry out research
in Russian archives. While the study's chronological boundaries primarily
encompass Soviet history, the Stalin era in particular, some
pre-Revolutionary topics make it useful for a broader audience.
The guide is the first to base its approach to the analysis of modern
Russian handwritten documents on combined methods of paleography,
neography, and forensic studies.

The text consists of an introduction, two chapters, an appendix, and
selected bibliography. The introduction underlines the significance of
advance preparation for archival research and the importance of analyzing
both the outward aspects and the textological features of archival
documents. The first chapter presents two methods of reading documents --
graphical and logical. A general survey of the evolution of Russian alphabet
and handwriting is followed by a more elaborate exposition of the graphical
characteristics of modern hands. The logical approach links up the common
principles of producing documents in Russia with data unearthed by auxiliary
historical disciplines such as paleography, chronology, metrology, toponymy,
and sphragistics. The second chapter subjects four sample documents to
detailed analysis to demonstrate how to apply the author's own simple
techniques to deciphering illegible hands. Throughout the book, 85
illustrations present archival documents of various types. The texts are
deciphered and supplied with commentary. These features make this guide
useful both in the classroom and for individual practice in reading Russian
handwritten archival documents.

If you would like to order a copy, please send a cheque or money order for
$15.00 US (addresses within North America) or $20.00 US (addresses outside
North America) to:
SERAP
Centre for European, Russian and Eurasian Studies
Munk Centre for International Studies
University of Toronto
1 Devonshire Place
Toronto, Ontario M5S 3K7
Canada


I have no financial interest in this book.

An additional article by the author on conducting archival research in
Russia and the former Soviet Union countries can be found at
http://pages.interlog.com/~moslon/olga/article.htm.

My thanks to Hilary Henkin for making me aware of it.

Sources of Information on Former German Areas, now Poland. #germany

Lande
 

Regarding my recent posting, Rodney Eisfelder, another GerSig member,
pointed out that the table of contents (not the town or name registers) are
available on the web at

http://www,gbv.de/dms.goettingen/369023536.pdf

(volume 1)

and http://www.gbv.de/dms/goettingen/487642856.pdf (volume 2).

Use of these websites gives the researcher a good idea of the scope of the books,
though access to the books themselves will still be need for detailed research.

ancestry of genealogist Peter Stern BUCKY #germany

Irene Newhouse
 

According to "Genealogical Tables of Jewish Families", chart VI C,
Peter Stern BUCKY's parents are Elen BUCKY and Franz STERN (1890-1964).
This doesn't quite make sense. And it gets even worse, because the
second of only 2 hits on "Peter Stern BUCKY" using a major
search engine is to the Aufbau death notice >from 1945, for
Daisy HIRSCH nee HERRMANN, in which are listed Peter Stern BUCKY &
presumably his parents, Dr. Gerhard and Ellen nee HIRSCH BUCKY,
as PSB is listed immediately below them.
Does anyone have further information?

There is only one reference to him in the JewishGen discussion group
archives, >from 1997, asking for information, and none in the GerSIG archive.
There seems to be nothing in the Leo Baeck Institute (NYC) catalog.

Thanks in advance! Irene Newhouse Kihei HI USA einew137@yahoo.com

Success story - Barry SQUIRE researching GROSSMAN #general

Nancy Goldberg
 

A few days ago, I was looking for a Barry SQUIRE, who had written to me in 1980 about
a GROSSMAN connection. I wrote to him in 1998 but received no reply. Last week I
came across his name as a survivor in the obit of a newly discovered relative. Over
the past few days, some terrific genners helped me find him. I have thanked each one
personally; thanks again to Barbara, Bette, Debbie, Ittai, Linda, Marian, Rodney &
Tina. I now have current contact information. Even if we don't connect, I know how
he's related, so I consider this a success story!
