"I don't believe my eyes!..this is unbelievable...I am moved beyond words." #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

Dear friends of JRI-Poland:

On December 7th, we asked you - our researchers and supporters -
to remember JRI-Poland in your year-end giving plans.

The response has been very generous and we thank you for your
continued support to enable JRI-Poland to expand its database
with additional record entries for your town(s).

Many of you have also supported our General Funds request as
well as our Next Generation website and data management
development project. Thank you for that vital support as well.

But, my expression of appreciation does not really reflect the
content of the subject line of this post, words we have heard
so many times, in one form or another.

In the last weeks, we have received many notes of appreciation
from our fellow genealogists mentioning how JRI-Poland's
database and tireless volunteers have helped them in their
research. Those messages are certainly not unusual.

But sometimes, these emails and phone calls are so powerful that
you can almost see the tears between the lines and most
certainly hear the sobs on the other end of the line. All
because of the unknown that was uncovered, the details of family
who perished - hidden by the researcher's survivor parents
come to light and with it the understanding of why their parents
thought it better that they never learn the truth.

Then there are the screams of joy of finding a close relative
when they heard all their lives that everyone had perished.

I would like to mention just two of the emotional messages we
have received this month. Please share our nachas.

A few weeks ago, I received this email >from DR in Ontario:

"I awoke at 4 am unable to stop the images in my head.
That's when I found your new message (with the specific details).

Once again, I'm moved beyond words.

from thinking myself a solitary leaf fluttering in the wind,
I'm now picturing roots.

Thank you >from the bottom of my heart."

And then days later, as more was revealed, she added:

"Oh, my G/d, this is beyond my wildest expectation.
I'm in an emotional tailspin. Do you know how I feel
going >from nothing to discovering that I can actually
be rooted to a living tree? This is earthshaking for me."

Five days ago, AF >from Massachusetts wrote:

'I simply cannot thank you enough for making this
unbelievable treasure trove of information available
to me and my family.

To add to these meaningful messages, in the last few weeks when
making their year-end donations, many of you have sent separate
emails to let us know how important JRI-Poland has been to your
research and for some, reminding us as to how in the past
JRI-Poland has resulted in life-changing discoveries.

As I wrote at the very end of last year, "no matter how often we
receive such notes of appreciation, I know I speak for the entire
JRI-Poland leadership when I say we are always touched to know
that we have made a difference."

To all of you who have generously supported us this month and
in the past, we thank you again. To researchers who have not yet
made a donation to JRI-Poland, please take a moment to consider
doing so before the year end. No donation is too small.

The JRI-Poland online donations page can be found at:
www.jri-poland.org/support.htm

Please note: Jewish Records Indexing - Poland is an independent
non-profit organization with its own administration, volunteers
and fundraising. As a courtesy to researchers, JRI-Poland allows
its data search results to be displayed on JewishGen's All=20
Poland Database.

Best wishes for 2020 to all our friends. May it be a year of
health for you and your families and continued success in
all your endeavors.

Year-end Report on Chernigov Gubernia Document Translation Project #ukraine

Beth Galleto
 

Dear fellow researchers of the Chernigov gubernia,

The Chernigov Gubernia Document Translation Project, which was started a year ago, has now translated and indexed information >from 421 pages in the original books of family lists (also called tax poll censuses) >from the area of the former Chernigov gubernia. Those translated so far are >from the Glukhov, Starodub, and Konotop uezds (districts), all in 1882.

The translations include 313 families in the Glukhov uezd, 484 in the Starodub uezd, and 419 in the Konotop uezd. I have made alphabetized lists of the surnames found in each of these. Please email me if you want to check any of these alphabetized lists.

Our wonderful translator is continuing her work, and she is currently more than half-way finished with the 1882 family lists >from the Mglin uezd.

The books containing the family lists were microfilmed by the LDS church, and images of the pages can now be seen online on the FamilySearch website. Altogether the films include records for the Jewish communities of the Borzna, Chernigov, Glukhov, Gorodnya, Konotop, Kozolets, Krolevets, Mglin, Nezhin, Novgorod-Seversk, Novozybkov, Oster, Sosnitsa, Starodub and Surazh uezds, including not just the named towns but also other towns within these districts. Most of the lists were made in 1882 and 1888, with a few >from later years.

Donations are needed to continue this work and can be made through the Ukraine SIG on the JewishGen website through the following link:

https://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=22


Such donations are tax deductible for U.S. citizens. The spreadsheets will ultimately be posted on the JewishGen website. Donors of $100 or more are eligible to view them before they are posted online.

Happy Chanukah and a good 2020 to all.

Re: Des Moines question

Judith Singer
 

"Jewish Glendale Cemetery" refers to one area of the Glendale Cemetery, which is maintained by the City of Des Moines and is ecumenical. Other areas of Glendale are devoted to Masons, veterans, infants, etc. There's a map of Glendale Cemetery with the sections outlines at https://maps.dsm.city/docs/maps/Glendale_Cemetery.pdf.  

Jews are also buried at Woodland Cemetery in Des Moines, plus Temple B'nai Jeshurun maintains a closed inactive cemetery on the East Side of Des Moines (where Eastern European Jews originally settled in Des Moines). The City of Des Moines also maintains three smaller cemeteries in addition to Glendale and Woodland but I am not aware of any Jews buried in those other three (that doesn't mean there aren't any, just that I'm not aware of them). The Iowa Jewish Historical Society might be able to provide more information about those other three.  

Happy holidays - Judith Singer

 


(United Kingdom) Royal Air Force Museum New Website Casualty Forms For WW l

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

 

 

The Royal Air Force Museum launched a new website: Casualty Forms that enables visitors to explore the casualty forms of officers of the Royal Flying Corps and Royal Air Force who served on the Western Front and in the Middle East during the First World War.  To visit the site go to:  https://www.casualtyforms.org/  Enter a surname on the search field. If the name you are searching is in their database then a list of casualties with that surname will appear. Click on the one you wish to review under “view full record”. You can download the forms to your computer. There is also a printed page of the record data, such as names, date of birth, rank and regiment.

 

The forms include information on casualty details, postings, periods of leave, promotions and decorations. Some may also have information on place of burial and name of the officiant. Much of the information on the forms may NOT be recorded in the personnel files held at the (UK) National Archives.

 

To mark the centenary of the First World War and the 100th anniversary of the formation of the Royal Air Force in 2018, the RAF Museum decided to undertake a project which would enable greater access to the records.  There are about 25,000 forms. The collection is not unique to the UK,  and includes information on Canadians as well as Australians.

 

The RAF Museum also holds digitized First World war Casualty Cares at the RAF Museum Story vault at:

http://www.rafmuseumstoryvault.org.uk/

 

Thank you to Gail Dever for sharing this information on her blog, Genealogy à la carte.

At Chanukah...an appeal from Stanley Diamond, Executive Director of JRI-Poland #warsaw #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

Dear friends of JRI-Poland:

As the festival of Chanukah is around the corner and we approach the end of=
the secular year, JRI-Poland reflects on the researchers who have recogniz=
ed the invaluable role we play and in so doing, have generously supported o=
ur programs and initiatives.

This year -- more than ever -- we need the support of each and every resear=
cher who utilizes the JRI-Poland website and database...sometimes making li=
fe-changing discoveries along the way.=20

And so, when making your year-end contributions, we ask you to recognize ho=
w we have made a difference for you, your family and countless others and g=
ive serious consideration to the three ways in which your support can be so=
vital to helping JRI-Poland build our database, enhance our initiatives an=
d make our efforts to benefit you even more meaningful.=20

Here is how you can make a difference.

1) Contribute to a Town Project

There is more to do for almost every town in our database, including adding=
more years and supplementing existing indices with additional information.=
Donations of every size are needed to keep each town project moving forwar=
d. Please contact the Town Leaders or Archive Coordinators for your towns t=
o find out what additional indexing or records extraction needs to be done =
or write to questions@jri-poland.org. Please give generously to these worth=
while projects.

2) Give a Gift to our Next Generation Project

JRI-Poland=E2=80=99s ambitious Next Generation project will make our databa=
se even more valuable for researchers in the future. It will also ensure th=
at future leadership will have the tools to best help the research communit=
y. The 'Next Gen' Project requires significant donations. It entails the fi=
rst overhaul haul of our database and website in 25 years. It is our commit=
ment to bring you the optimum ways to access and analyze the information yo=
u need to build your family tree and retrieve the names of your previously =
unknown ancestors and lost relatives.

For more information about Next Gen, please write to nextgen@jri-poland.org=
. Read more at: http://www.jri-poland.org/NextGeneration.pdf

3) Help Strengthen our General Fund

Those of you who know me and my colleagues are surely aware how we have lab=
ored tirelessly to make JRI-Poland what it is, the home of the =E2=80=98lar=
gest collection of Jewish vital records online.=E2=80=99 But, we volunteer=
s can only accomplish so much. As JRI-Poland has grown over the years, we'=
ve experienced increasing Technical and Accounting & Auditing needs that re=
quire professional resources, and since we are a completely independent org=
anization that has never/never charged a membership fee, we need to strengt=
hen our General Fund that supports our underlying structure

No donation is too small and every donation is greatly appreciated! You can=
donate online at: www.jri-poland.org/support.htm

When donating by credit card, under "Town Name' please write in which town =
you wish to support, or under Allocation of Your Contribution, choose 'Next=
Generation Project' or "General Fund" depending on your intention.

Remember, we now also provide a facility to make recurring donations. Small=
donations >from you each month add up and can make a large difference to us=
.

Finally, JRI-Poland has been the recipient of a number of bequests >from res=
earchers remembering our organization in their estate planning. These beque=
sts have given us the flexibility in the past to invest in new indexing/ext=
ractions projects. We hope that those of you who are in position to do so w=
ill consider supporting the JRI-Poland legacy with a bequest of your own.

Note: JRI-Poland is an independent non-profit organization, a registered 50=
1(c)(3) in the United States, with its own administration, volunteers and f=
undraising. As a courtesy to researchers, JRI-Poland enables its data searc=
h results to be displayed on JewishGen's All Poland Database.

Please forward my message to the "page" about the brickyard in Budapest, 1944. I am UNABLE TO REPLY and hope you can tell me how to do it.  Susan Gordon, JG member.

"A story in the book, Young People Speak: Surviving the Holocaust in Hungary, 1993, Franklin Watts & Co. was written by Peter Barta and is called "The Brickyard." Book should be easy to find in public libraries; that's how I found mine. Good Luck!

Re: help with Budapest addresses

Judi Gyory Missel
 

I think the factory you were sent was definitely dependent on where the family lived. The community of Pesterzsebet, which is now District XX of Budapest, was taken to the Óbuda Brick Factory. Included in this round up were my mother, my aunt, and all my grandparents. They arrived in Auschwitz on 1 Jul 1944.

Here is more information about the various brick factories used in Jewish Budapest: Monuments, Rites, History By Kinga Frojimovics found on Google Books:

Hello everyone.

I am collecting pictures from the Munkacs Rabbi The Minchas Elazar, Rabbi Chaim Eluzer Spira and trying to identify people seen in then and places where the pictures were photographed. 

If you have any pictures or information about then and are willing to share and participate in my research it would be greatly appreciated.  Please contact me via email: makava1@.... 

Thank you in advance.

Re: ViewMate Translation Request - Yiddish

fredelfruhman
 

I would take Google Translate's rendering of German into English with a large grain of salt.  The result is often at least confusing, if not almost totally misleading.  This is due partly to the major difference in sentence structure between German and English.  I have found that the translation is often the OPPOSITE of what it should be, due to difficulties with properly translating negatives.

Hello,

It’s very difficult to find female members of any family in Budapest during the war years because they all took ( and still do) the name of their husband , so you grandmother would be known as Weiszné Eugenia. Most of the Jewish people lived in the 7th and 8th district , my husband was one of them. Try to find them in My Heritage website. Or Jewish Gen.

Des Moines question

Trudy Barch
 

Happy Chanukah to all my JewishGen friends

 

I have found many cousins buried at the Jewish Glendale Cemetery and one spouse that says just Glendale Cemetery.

Is the Jewish part just a section of the bigger cemetery?

 

Are there other Jewish cemeteries or sections of cemeteries in the Des Moines area?

 

Thank you,   Trudy Barch, FLorida
