Jeffrey,

The letter "G"in Cyrillic is pronounced somewhere between a /g/ and an
/h/ sound. I have seen many names in 19th century vital records that are
written with a leading /G/ on the Russian language side of the ledger
and with aleading/H/ (heh) on the Hebrewledger page.I also have seen
many names that sometimes are written with a leading /G/ in Cyrillic and
other times written with a leading /H/, even in the same family.

I have posted pieces of my Grandfathers brother's passport, and a
Russian document belonging to my Grandfather. I am not sure what the
document belonging to my Grandfather is. I can read the date 1914,
but my Grandfather emigrated in 1913. I can also read 1882. I am not
sure when he was born. The document stating that he was born in 1892
make more sense.

My Grandfather is Morris Estis. Perhaps the document is not for him.

I would like a full translation. I will be posting more parts of my
Grandfather's brothers passport.

I've printed out Roger's useful detailed explanation for future reference.
It's information clearly amassed through hours of study. But not all my
German ancestors lived in Prussia. Many came >from Baden, Wurttenberg, and
various smaller states, where I believe the protocol was different; for
instance I've just come across the term Kammerknecht - see my previous post.
I think Kammer translates as exchequer. Has anyone made an equally detailed
study of systems elsewhere in 18th/19th century German-speaking states?
Personally I could cope with a German language version, and would be
prepared to pass the information on.

Hungary SIG #Hungary Yizkor Book Project, October 2012 #hungary

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

At the outset of this report, I would like to say that my thoughts, like
many, are with the people have just undergone a tormentful time though
Sandy's onslaught on cities in the United States and Canada. I can only hope
that for all those affected by this storm, that life for them soon returns
to being very normal and very tranquil.

About the Yizkor Book Project - we continue to plug on. I believe that
October can be characterized by a large number of updates to existing
projects, some of which are drawing close to completion. For some of our
updates, we've been working on the addition of tables of contents for
existing projects that, up until now have been without. Immeasurable help
in carrying out these translations is being provided by the Yocheved
Klausner and Sara Mages. Our aim is to continue add in table of contents to
projects without, in order to indicate to you, the readers, of the "gems"
that these Yizkor Books contain. As we translate an article, a blue
hyperlink will be added to the contents and for those main pages that don't
have blue links, it's probably because no one has stepped forward to
coordinate the translation of the particular Yizkor Book. So what are you
waiting for? <g>

Our project, as I'm sure you're aware, relies on the help of a great many
volunteers in the fields translating, transliterating, editing, picture
scanning and typing and we never have too many people involved in our aim of
seeing these books completely translated into English. I'm pleased to note
that apart >from English, we have a small but growing contingent of books
being translated into other languages. For instance, this past month has
seen the addition of Polish translations >from the Staszow book, which has
already translations in English and Hebrew. The addition of these
translations means that more and more people with no knowledge of Hebrew or
Yiddish (the main languages of the Yizkor Books) can now freely access the
important information these books contain in a language that is convenient
for them to read in.

Now to facts and figures - as far as the October figures go, during this
last month we have added these 3 new projects:

projects without, in order to indicate to you, the readers, of the "gems"
that these Yizkor Books contain. As we translate an article, a blue
hyperlink will be added to the contents and for those main pages that don't
have blue links, it's probably because no one has stepped forward to
coordinate the translation of the particular Yizkor Book. So what are you
waiting for? <g>

Our project, as I'm sure you're aware, relies on the help of a great many
volunteers in the fields translating, transliterating, editing, picture
scanning and typing and we never have too many people involved in our aim of
seeing these books completely translated into English. I'm pleased to note
that apart >from English, we have a small but growing contingent of books
being translated into other languages. For instance, this past month has
seen the addition of Polish translations >from the Staszow book, which has
already translations in English and Hebrew. The addition of these
translations means that more and more people with no knowledge of Hebrew or
Yiddish (the main languages of the Yizkor Books) can now freely access the
important information these books contain in a language that is convenient
for them to read in.
