DISNA DISTRICT RESEARCH GROUP #belarus

ELGOLD1@...
 

A new research group for Disna Uezd (or Disna District) is in formation. Disna
District was located in Vilna Gubernia and is today part of Belarus. Because
it was historically located in the Lithuanian province of Vilna, the revision
lists are held by the Lithuanian archives. The project is being organized as
part of the LitvakSIG's effort to copy revision lists for the 14 districts of
Vilna and Kovno gubernia, but because the area is now part of Belarus we are
hoping that it may be of interest to some members of the Belarus SIG.

The towns in Disna district include:
Disna (Dzisna), Druya, Germanovce (Germanovichi, Hermanovicy), Glubokie
(Glubokoye), Golubicy (Golubichi), Leonopol, Luzhek (Luzki), Plisa (Plisse),
Postavy, and Sharkovshchina (Sarkauscyna).

If you have an interest in any of these towns and want to partcipate, please
contact me for further information.

Best,
Eric L. Goldstein

Shalom Khaverim: <italic>CZENSTOCHOV: Our Legacy </italic>is available
from the Judaica Collections at the Florida Atlantic University
Library. We have numerous brand new copies of this Yizkor Bukh which
was edited, translated to English, and published in 1993, by Harry
Klein. This Yizkor Bukh contains a 360 page English section and a 117
page Yiddush section. Co-Editor was Ruth Klein Tatner and Consulting
Editor was Prof.: Menachem Rotstein.

"Czenstochova is located approximately 125 miles southwest of Warsaw;
the shrine of Jasna Gora Madonna in Czenstochova was celebrated as a
center of Catholic pilgrimage. Seventy-five Jewish residents were
recorded in Czenstochova in 1765 and 495 in 1808, when an organized
community was established. Although Jewish residence was prohibited in
certain districts, the Jewish population grew.... and in 1863, with the
abolition of the Jewish quarter, to 3,360 [37.3%]. By 1900, it numbered
11, 764....and in 1939, 28,486."

" The German Army entered the city on 3 September 1939. The next day,
later called 'Bloody Monday", a pogrom was organized in which a few
hundred Jews were murdered." ".... When a greater number of Jews from
other parts of western Poland came in 1940-41, the city's population
grew by several thousands. On 9 April 1941, a ghetto was
established.... On 23 September a large-scale 'aktion' began. By 5
October, about 39,000 people had been deported to Treblinka and
exterminated [sic], while 2,000 were executed on the spot."

JewishGen College Re-opens #yizkorbooks

Carol Skydell <skydell@...>
 

Yizkor Project Mailing List

We are very pleased to announce the reactivation
of the JewishGen College beginning the week of
Oct.5th with "Creating a Webpage"

Our instructor Mark Heckman is a lecturer and
researcher in the computer science department
at the University of California, Davis, where he has
taught classes in web page design for computer
novices. Mark is the webmaster for several
JewishGen-hosted webpages (Sacramento JGS;
Gesher Galicia and ROM-SIG; Volhynia, Gorodenka,
and Kovel ShtetLinks pages),

Because the envisioned outcome is a coterie of trained folks who
will volunteer to create both Yizkor Book as
well as ShtetLinks pages for JewishGen, this course has certain
prerequisites:

1.) Participants must have a working familiarity with Windows or
MacIntosh, knowing how to open and close windows, how to use a
mouse, and other basic computer skills.

2.) They must also be familiar with using a word processing
program, such as Microsoft Word or WordPerfect, and be
comfortable with cutting and pasting text, with using multiple
fonts in a document, and with other word processing features.

3.) The class will use a free program, called "Netscape
Composer," to create and edit web pages. Netscape Composer is
part of the Netscape Communicator
package. You can obtain Netscape Communicator
from the following page:
< http://www.netscape.com/download/selectplatform
_1_1.html>

Be aware that Netscape Communicator is quite large
and will take a while to download.

Click on your operating system and follow the links to download
and install Communicator on your system.
The latest version is 4.06. If you already have Netscape
Communicator version 4.0 or later you do not need to download it
again.

Netscape Communicator is also widely available >from different
internet service providers, and on CD-ROM.

Netscape Composer is a type of program called an
"HTML editor." We will use Netscape Composer for
three reasons:

a.) Netscape runs on a wide variety of computers and operating
systems so probably no student will be
unable to use it;
b.) Netscape is widely used and therefore many of you
may already have it installed on your systems; and
c.) it's free.

There are many other HTML editors available, and most have very
similar user interfaces. If you have another HTML editor, you
can use that in the class but the commands will be different
from those in Composer
and you might get confused. We expect many students
in this class, so there probably won't be time to answer
questions about HTML editors other than Netscape Composer.

4.) The final prerequisite is the reason we're offering this
course. JewishGen is desperately in need of volunteers
who know how to create webpages for the Yizkor
Book and the ShtetLinks Projects. We have more
material waiting to be put online than our current
volunteers and managers can handle. Since both these projects
are extremely important to researchers, we can only turn to you,
the users of JewishGen to help us out here. We're offering this
course to provide you with
a skill that you in turn will use to help us all. With that
said, the final prerequisite is your promise that once trained,
you will volunteer to help JewishGen get more
and more material online.

So, if you feel you meet all the prerequisites for this
course, here's how to enroll:

Send an email to listserve@...
and say

subscribe webpage <firstname> <lastname>

enrollment will close on Sunday October 4th
and class will start on Monday Oct. 5th

The "lectures" will come to you just the way
messages do >from any of our mailing lists.

We expect a hefty crowd of enrollees and some
very well trained volunteers to help JewishGen
bring more and more information to us all!

visit to hungary - 2 report #hungary

Leah Kraus <kraus@...>
 

Dear all,
- continuation -
The day later we traveled to Edeleny, 25 km. north to Mishkoltz, the
village-town where my father grew, since he was 3 years old. My fortune
was that a relative, who also lived there, is with good connection with
the mayor and he noticed that we're coming. They welcome us so nicely
and warmly. We found the old house, the castle, the river and it was so
good to locate the stories we heard in their locations. The The train
station still there with the long long railway lines which no doubt
carried the community to Awshvitz. The cemetery "Israelite Temeto" is
surrounded with fence and the entrance is through locked gate. The young
man, >from the municipality, who took us there told us to be prepared not
to find many grave stones because the gypsies steal those are made of
marble. fortunately my grand grand mother's, after whom i'm called, is
of regular stone and high. it is still clear and readable. now i can
look for her past, knowing she was born in 1848 in Hollohous. There are
no trees here nut heavy and high weed. we could see only 10 grave
stones (>from among 200 graves) those which are close to the entrance.
In the municipality, after asking if I can get information about my
family, I received birth cards of my father's brothers and sisters
(>from his dear step mother) who were born in Edeleny (1914 - 1924). I'll
report later how it works.
I know there will be (iy"h) another visit to get more pieces of
information.
My conclusion was that the best way to get information is to notice the
office that you come, and to stay more than a day in one place. This
area (Borshod, Zemplen in the north) is now making much efforts to
integrate in the 'national park' and the near Ageltek cave, which push
them to be more cooperative with tourists and visitors.
