Carol Baker Z"L" #lithuania

Davida Handler <davida.handler@...>
 

It is with deep sadness that I say "goodbye" to my dear friend, Carol
Baker, who died on Sunday.

Carol was my inspiration in co-founding LitvakSIG in 1997. At the
1996 IAJGS Conference in Boston, she said "Ed Cohler was able to get
some records >from Lithuania. If I put in $500 to try to get some
more, would you do that too?" and of course I said "yes." It was in
the early days before we began to digitize records. This led to my
co-founding LitvakSIG in 1997 at the Paris IAJGS Conference, and Carol
was with me all the way until my resignation in 2006. She was my
sounding board in good times and bad, and always available with
kindness and practical advice on all aspects of the organization.
We travelled to Lithuania in 2000 with Deena Berton, getting together
with archivists, and visiting our shtetlach with Regina Kopelevich.
We were always together at IAJGS Conferences.

Thank you Carol for all you meant to all of us, and as you said in
your last email to a few of us "We had some good times together and
did some good things. Thanks for the memories."

You were my true friend. I will miss you terribly.

Carol Baker Z''L #lithuania

Deena Berton <deena.berton@...>
 

Dear Fellow LitvakSIG Folks,

I'm very sorry to share the news with you that Carol Baker Z"L
passed away Sunday.

Carol remarked more than once that she fondly remembered the Paris
meeting at the 1997 IAJGS Conference and the founding of LitvakSIG. She
was the Siauliai District Coordinator and then the Coordinator of all
District Coordinators for many years. She and I collaborated together to
create a lot of the early standards LitvakSIG used for tracking and
proofing data. It was the wild west then and lots of fun as the spigots
first opened and information we thought would never be available started
coming through email to us in spreadsheet after spreadsheet.

Carol, Davida Handler and I had a wonderful trip to Lithuania in 2000
where we visited all our family shtetls and both the Kaunas Archives and
the Vilnius Archives where we were warmly welcomed by the archivists who
we were coordinating with then to get records for LitvakSIG. When Carol
stepped down >from LitvakSIG, she entrusted me with her baby - the
Siauliai District Research Group. I was truly honored when she nominated
and helped get me elected to the LitvakSIG Board in 2008.

Her funeral will be in Milwaukee (WI) on Friday and there will be
a memorial service in Wellesley (MA) at Elm Bank on 6/24 at 11am
(pending confirmation).

In her last email to me, Carol said We had some good times together
and did some good things. Thanks for the memories.

She was so right.

Updated KehilaLinks Page for Kosice, Slovakia #austria-czech

Madeleine Isenberg
 

To the three SIGs I subscribe to in Europe,

This is to let you know that I just updated the KehilaLinks page for
Kosice (http://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/kosice/), that I originally
created last September 2014.

People >from Hungary, Galicia, Austria, Moravia, Bohemia and other
places may have at one time or another lived there so I thought you
might want to be informed.

Thanks to those whose contributions were added for this update.

Always looking for additional material in the way of photographs,
documentation, and history to add to the KehilaLinks pages.

Hope you find it interesting and useful and look forward to hearing >from you.

Regards,

Yizkor Book Project, May 2015 #austria-czech

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I won't be making an unheard of fact in saying that if you put in effort,
time and persist to realize a particular goal, in the end there's a good
chance that you'll achieve it. The reason that I bring this up is that in
the past month the Yizkor books in Print (YBIP) Project saw the publishing
of the "Memorial Book of the Molchad (Maytchet) Jewish Community", the
translation of which was coordinated by Myrna Siegel over many years.
Several months ago we saw the completion of the translation through the
effort, time and persistence Myrna put into this project and she must be
admired for seeing the project to its successful culmination and enabling us
to make this book available to all of the people with roots in Molchad
(Maytchet).

Other news this past month is that we were presented with the "The Mahler
Family" book to be placed online with the published version also available
through our YBIP Project - see: http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html .
The book was authored by Dr. Robin O'Neil who is a former police major
crimes investigator. Through his particular background in criminal
investigation, he has extensively researched the Nazi war crimes and we have
been fortunate in that he has generously donated quite a number of his books
to the Yizkor Book Project over the years and which make extremely
enlightening reading.

The Yizkor Book Project continues each month to add in new projects and
build on the projects that have been setup previously and we will continue
to do so as long as we have your support. The Yizkor Book Project exists due
to generous donors and the untiring assistance of many volunteers. If you
feel able to assist in any field related to the project as a volunteer,
please feel free to contact me. We are currently on the lookout for
volunteer editors who are capable of proofreading prepared translations but
doesn't necessitate knowing Hebrew or Yiddish. If you are able to assist in
this field, I'd certainly be pleased to hear >from you.
