Re: questions concerning several acts #warsaw #poland

Olivier asked a number of questions about several archives and not just
questions on the records for the city of Warszawa, which was the original
purpose for this Research Group.

The addresses for all of the individual archives can be found on the Polish
State Archives Website. Here is the link
http://www.archiwa.gov.pl/en/state-archives/381-list-of-archives.html You
can email the individual archives to obtain copies.

Many of the Warszawa City Fond 200 records are available online.
JRI-Poland has begun to link the images to the JRI-Poland results and with
the soon to be announced database update which will occur at the time of the
IAJGS Conference in Jerusalem, many additional Warszawa City results will
be linked to images on the National Digital Archives website. In the
meanwhile Fond 200 images can be located at

er&wynik=42&rpp=15&page=3#tabZespol


When you search the database (either Jewishgen's All Poland database or
JRI-Poland) and get a result for Nasz Przeglad, if you scroll to the bottom
you will get a link to the information on that database. It can be found
at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Poland/NaszPrzeglad.htm On this
website, it contains information on Libraries which have copies of the
Journal. There are some digital copies on http://polona.pl I have not

JOWBR Pre-Conference Update #latinamerica

Nolan Altman
 

JOWBR Grows to Over 2.4 Million Records!

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2015 pre-Conference update to the JOWBR
(JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial Registry) database. The JOWBR database
can be accessed at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/ If you're
a new JOWBR user, we recommend that you take a look at the first two
explanatory screencasts at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Screencasts/

This update adds approximately 70,000 new records and 21,000 new photos.
The database is adding and/or updating 570 cemeteries. This update brings
JOWBR's holdings to 2.4 million records >from more than 5,400 cemeteries /
cemetery sections representing 115 countries!

Once again, donors for this update include a mix of individuals, Jewish
genealogical societies, historical societies and museums. We appreciate all
our donor's submissions and the transliteration work done by a faithful
group of JewishGen volunteers.

I want to particularly thank Eric Feinstein who has been instrumental in the
growth of foreign veteran and foreign country burials. Eric works with a
team of data entry volunteers; Alla Aizenberg, Sandra Bennett, Julie Bolton,
Sharon Duckman, Helen Furnell, Henry Graupner, Guy Haber, Ann Meddin
Hoffmann, Maurice Kessler, Harriet Mayer, Hans Nord, Renee Payne, Amit
Pinsler, Yael Polat, Irina Roskin, Rebecca Stern, Suzanne Tarica, Nicholas
Trokiner, Sari Tuomioja, and Paula Zieselman. In addition, without our
volunteer transliterators, led by Gilberto Jugend, we would not be able to
add the information >from some very difficult to read photos.

Significant additions to the database include collections >from Austria, the
Czech Republic, France, Germany, Poland, Romania, Scotland, Ukraine and the
United States. Please check our online cemetery inventory at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm for a complete
listing.

We appreciate all the work our donors have done and encourage you to make
additional submissions. Whether you work on a cemetery / cemetery section
individually or consider a group project for your local Society, temple or
other group, it's your submissions that help grow the JOWBR database and
make it possible for researchers and family members to find answers they
otherwise might not. Please also consider other organizations you may be
affiliated with that may already have done cemetery indexing that would
consider having their records included in the JOWBR database.

Yizkor Book Project, May 2015 #latinamerica

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.

Now to facts and figures for May.

- Bacau, Romania (The community of Bacau)

this field, I'd certainly be pleased to hear >from you.
