Yizkor Book Project, March 2016 #courland #latvia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Yet another month has whooshed past and it's the time to let you know what
has been accomplished in the Yizkor Book Project over the last 31 days. I
would like to point out some particularly notable projects that were added
or updated in March:

The first was the completion of the online placement of the translation of
the Golshany, Belarus Yizkor Book, which was generously donated to our
project by Jack Leibman and we are most thankful for this significant
donation.

Another notable addition was the addition of the "Biographical Dictionary of
Jewish Resistance" book which was provided to us by Yad Vashem. The list of
the names appearing in it was painstakingly translated for us by Shalom
Bronstein and it contains an enormous amount of information on a large
number of Jewish Partisans and is definitely worth your perusal.

I am also pleased to note that Esther Weinschelbaum has kindly sent us a
Hebrew translation of the Kamen Kashirskiy Book which joins the ever growing
Hebrew translations about former Jewish communities in the Ukraine and
Esther is well-deserving of our grateful thanks.

Finally, as I've noted before, the Yizkor Books in Print Project doesn't
stop for a minute and just this last month, we are happy to announce that
the publishing of "The Book of Dembitz". This and the many other books
already published by the YBIP Project are in high demand. Of course, there
are still many books waiting to be published and the work goes on as we
"speak".

And now for all the changes and additions that were carried out in the
Yizkor Book Project over March.

Thanks! Rebecca died in 1958 approx. age 72.. Never thought of inquiring about her father, because we were not 100% sure of her maiden name! She came to America in about 1906 and was about 14-16 years of age!

The Rebecca about whom you've written to me and others in the past
(wife of Israel Feld) was born closer to 1890! If this is the same
grandmother Rebecca, please send a correction to the Ukraine SIG and
to any other lists you've written to, so no one goes on a wild goose
chase on your behalf.

Or do you mean that Mordechai was born in 1850? Either way, you need
to clarify.

Karen Zale
 

Dear Genners:

The JewishGen Belarus SIG has just completed a set of records >from the
Pruzhany district. These records are a list of males >from 1853 based on
the 1850 revision list records. I gave the donation and received the
list of names. I believe I found our family name, ZALEFSKY.

Now I do not know how to figure out how these men fit in our family.
I think it is the correct family since some of the given names are
the same that we have in our family. Where do I go >from here?

Information I know:

gubernia, Russian Empire D. 1952, Brooklyn, New York

Daughter: Sara Esther b. 1882 Shereshov, Pruzhany uyezd, Grodno
gubernia, Russian Empire D. 1945, Brooklyn, New York

from the Pruzhany 1850 Males spreadsheet:
Surname: Zalesky Given name: Leizer Father: Velvel Relationship to
Head of Household: Head Age: 47
Surname: Zalesky Given name: Shepsel Relationship to Head of
Household: Son Age: 16
Surname: Zalesky Given name: Shmuilo Father: Itsko Relationship to

Re: STEPHAN family name from Lampertheim, Hesse #general

Roger Lustig
 

Judith:

The surname STEFAN/STEPHAN/etc. is essentially unknown among German
Jews. Not least, it was the name of a Christian martyr, and very few
Jews selected such names as surnames.

If the family came >from Lampertheim and was Jewish at one point, they
would have to have converted -- something that may well have been recorded
in the church records. But the surname (if any) prior to that event
would have been different.
