A search via bookfinder.com using the word Yizkor throws up many (about
70) Yizkor books for sale by various dealers. Prices are in the $75-$150
range ( generally). No Israeli dealers are featured. I am not posting
the full list but if anyone wants it ( unformatted) please email me
privately.

Re: suwalki records - eeek #poland

BARBARU@...
 

Regarding transliterating the birth, death and marriage records, there are
several pages on the <Jewish Records Indexing-Poland: transliter... > site
that have Polish and Russian characters that can be printed out. When I was
doing this for some of the Siedlce records, I used this chart to try to
decipher the printed, written and Roman characters for the Polish, some
pre-1917 orthography, and also some German written in Roman, Fraktur and
written styles. I'm sorry, but the exact web page address did not show up on
the printout, but I hope that this will help anyway.

The Frazin site is fantastic. Would it be presumptious to ask for
similar renditions of German Gothic print records?

Yizkor Books #YizkorBooks Possible Book Sources #yizkorbooks

Susannah R. Juni <sjuni@...>
 

I have not tried searching for Yizkor books at the sources listed below,
but if anyone has any luck, please let me know. If either of them works,
I'll add a link to the Yizkor Book Project's Retail List. The following
info was sent to me by Amazon.com in response to a query I'd sent them. It
could be a great source. Has anyone tried EBay.com for Yizkor books yet?
(Don't laugh.) I know people who have found other rare foreign language
books there.

If anyone has a moment to try these sources, please let us know if thye work.

Thanks.

Susannah Juni

I would recommend searching for this title on Bibliofind
(http://www.bibliofind.com). Bibliofind lists 10 million used,
antiquarian and rare books offered for sale by thousands of book
sellers around the world, so it's quite possible that you'll find the
book listed there. Their listings are updated frequently, so I
encourage you to check back periodically if you don't find the book
you're seeking right away.

You might also try browsing the book categories on Amazon.com Auctions
(http://auctions.amazon.com) to see if anyone is selling a copy of
this book there.

Is this the same as Cluj, or Kalishvar, which is in Hungary ?

If so, I have one Yizkor book, I could look up something for you.

Rabbi Berliner- fact or fiction? #general

Allan C. Page <apage@...>
 

I am doing geneology of my family and I get stuck with a family story.
The story goes that my great grandfather was a Rabbi in Illinois and
that he left his family, ran off and met my great grandmother 15 years
his younger, changed his name to Page (LePage County/)

My grandfather Henry B. Page, born in NY states that his father was
Ephraim Berliner, hence the name change.

Any ideas where I can look in Illinois?? I am hopeful that you will
have all the answers. Thanks in advance.

Sincerely,

Allan Page

MODERTATOR'S NOTE: You should check Cyndi's List <www.cyndislist.com> for an index of Illinois Geenalogical resources. also, I've had good luck by writing to the Reference Librarians in the County Seats of several small midwestern counties.

The new Version 7 of Family Tree Maker had added a burial field to the

make a suggestion for a standard. My suggestion is that we use the
burial field for Holocaust information.

Hello Jewishgeners!
There already is a "standard" for indicating victims of persecution. After the individual's name we add "HaShem yinkom et dammo/dammah", which means "May G-d avenge his/her blood". I add the Hebrew abbreviation "heh yud dalled" after the names of Holocaust victims in my family charts.

Re: Brody and Russian emmigrants #galicia

Rafi Guber
 

I wish I had time to mention all the places Brody appears as the major rail
center bringing Russian Jews to ports of embarkation. As primary source
narratives about the Jewish refugee problem in Brody, I would recommend the
records of the HIAS and the earlier HEAS. In many cases first person
accounts especially during WWI and the Russian Revolution contain the names
of actual families. I would be happy to come up with additional sources
when I return [>from a trip] next week.
