Am interested in helping with this project. Let me know what I need to do.
Since I have a personal interest in the Warszwa records I would be very
interested in helping to get them entered for the members to use.

Once again the Douglas E. Goldman Jewish Genealogy Center (DOROT) has
provided the Warsaw Shtetl CO-OP with extract pages >from the LDS
Microfilms. The recent shipment contains Birth, Marriage and Death Records
from 1836, 1840-43 and 1851. Miriam Segali, the volunteer at Dorot, has
translated the records and hand written the information on to large ledger
sheets. Volunteers are needed to enter Miriam's hand written information

work.

Re: Berlin / Bevis Marks Records #general

Vicky Ferraresi <vickyfer@...>
 

I would agree with looking for the Jacob Jacobson publications. The
Family History Library has it, other libraries too. I found my paternal
great grandmother's family QUIATOWSKY here going back two more
generations, giving me two more female lines and towns to search. All
other searches for this name have been negative. Just remember it is a
secondary source. I was able to confirm the information re: my family
in other records. The book lists many names, and cross references sons
with fathers and widowed mothers, and also the marriages of daughters.
There are archived messages in JewishGen and GerSIG re: the books,
including the FHL call numbers.

Thank you for all the responses about my questions about Bevis Marks.

Hebrew translation help needed on ViewMate #general

Bernie Hirsch <bernie06@...>
 

Hi,

I have a picture of my great-great-grandfather's grave from
SCHIRRHOFFEN (Bas-Rhin, France) Cemetary that I need some translation
help with. It is in Hebrew and a little difficult to read because of
the angle of the picture and the sun, but the Hebrew is fully legible.

The picture of the grave is on the ViewMate site at
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/, file VM041. Or you may go
directly to:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/toview15.html#vm041

My great-great-grandfather's name was Lyon HIRSCH (he was also
sometimes called Lippman HIRSCH, and once called Hirsch HIRSCH). The
2nd line of the Hebrew is his name, as it starts off "ben ..." and
following "ben" it looks like "aleph, lamed, yud, zayen, daled(?),
kuf(?)". His father's name was also Leon HIRSCH. I can't imagine
what that name would be. Also, I would love to get the rest of the
grave translated. There is a slightly larger version of the
photograph at:

http://home.sprynet.com/~bernie06/famtree/pics/Leon-Hirsch-Hebrew-Inscription.jpg

My great-great-grandfather's family tree is located at:

http://home.sprynet.com/~bernie06/famtree/g312.html

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!

Kind regards,
Bernie Hirsch Dallas, Texas, USA bernie06@sprynet.com

Who has information about the mass grave in Simferopol? #general

heruts <heruts@...>
 

Dear genners,
My great-grand mother: Batya ROSENBLUM and her daughter: Katya/Chasya
(probably with her own family) were killed by the Nazis in 1942 with 14,000
Simferopol's Jews.
Obviously it is very important for me to know as much what happened there.
Thank you for any information about those dark days.

it is available at the Library of Congress under call # DS135.H9 T4.

Re: The name Ida/Chicki #general

Ellen Zyroff <ezyroff@...>
 

My great aunt Ida was Chaiah/Haiah in Hebrew. She was called by family
"Chaikeh," and even more informally as "Chaikie." Perhaps the English
tranliteratied "Chaikie" was turned into your relative's anglicized name
"Chicki."

Hello everyone,
I read about the name of Ida >from Ida Selavan Schwarcz who said her
Hebrew name was Haya. I sent a copy of her message to my cousin whose
mother, my aunt, was named Ida and then changed it to Idell.
He wrote me back that it was interesting however his mother's name was
Chicki. He was not sure if that was spelled correctly however that is
how it sounded. Has anyone ever heard of a Hebrew name sounding like
Chicki? And giving the girl the name of Ida?
Thanks to all.
