If you're considering a visit to your ancestral town this spring, summer or
fall, and will also be visiting the local cemetery, please consider taking
photos of the remaining headstones for submission to JewishGen's JOWBR
database. As you know, JewishGen's goal is to preserve genealogical
information for future generations and virtually preserving headstones,
especially if they include Hebrew patronymic names, is incredibly valuable
to researchers.

Please check our current Cemetery Inventory at

data or photos for a particular cemetery and the date the last update was
done.no point duplicating work. Information on making submissions can be

Yizkor Book Project, April 2018 #ciechanow #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I am always impressed and encouraged to see progress being made in our
various translation projects. Some of the progress is small and some
is more significant but all bring these projects closer and closer to
their ultimate aim of completely translating the Yizkor Books and
placing the translations online for the benefit of many.

We are so fortunate to have a number of dedicated people who do all
the work behind the scenes of the Yizkor Book Project. Be it
encouraging funding, being in contact with our professional
translators or seeking out the assistance of volunteer translators to
help advance the projects. Without these wonderful people, I would
have nothing to report and believe me, the activities of last month do
provide me with a great deal to report.

Something important to report, for instance, were a number of new
books have been published last month through the auspices of the
Yizkor Books in Print Project. The books that came out in April were
firstly, for Karelichy, Belarus - "Korelitz: The Life and Destruction
of a Jewish Community" and, secondly, "Pan Kapitan of Jordanow",
dealing with the rescue of Jewish children during the Holocaust period
by Yeshayahu Drucker, AKA "Pan Kapitan". A link leading to the details
of these and the other published books may be found at the end of this
report.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried
out in the Yizkor Book Project in April.

We have added in 11 new entries:

New additions to the JRI-Poland online database #galicia

Howard Fink
 

I am very pleased to announce that JRI-Poland has just added two new
collections in the Tarnow and Nowy Wisnicz region to our free online
searchable database:

* Gorlice School Records
* Nowy Wisnicz 1880 Census

Both of these collections include a clickable link with each search result
that will bring up a high resolution image of the original page containing
the record.

While neither of these collections is what we normally consider a vital
record collection, they do include birthdate information as well as
family member data. This kind of data helps round out our knowledge
of our ancestors.

The Gorlice School Records are the same ones that Russ Maurer had
previously transcribed and announced as a downloadable Excel file. He
graciously allowed us to include it in our database so that anyone
searching JRI-Poland will now have those results displayed. This is a
bonus for two reasons:

* Those who did not know of, or to look at, the Gorlice School records
will now discover matches there, and

* Researchers can now search this collection using the power of the
various sound-matching capabilities of the JRI-Poland search engine.

You can read more details about this project here:

databases. To see them in the All Galicia Database, go to
https://search.geshergalicia.org/. You can search there by name or
browse the entire list of almost 3,000 names. To browse, click these
parameters in the left-hand column: Record Type - School, Prime
Location - Gorlice, Poland. The most common surnames in the records:

Shmuel Lewin of Johannesburg, SA #general

Linda Levine <lindalevine64@...>
 

I'm looking for information on Shmuel Lewin (or Levin) of Johannesburg,
South Africa. I have an old undated letter >from him, written in Yiddish
to his Uncle Max Levine in the Bronx, New York. It may have been written
in the late 1940s as Max died in 1951.

Max and my grandfather Sam Levine were brothers >from Novogrudak, Belarus.
Other siblings in the US were Mary (Mirke Dushke) Lubin, Nathan and Joseph
Levine. There were five other brothers and sisters in my grandfather's
generation, but they did not come to the US.

Shmuel's address was 114 North Ave, Bez Valley North, Johannesburg.
Also mentioned in the letter was Cyla and her children.

If anyone can shed any light on this Shmuel please contact me privately.

Any advise about how to obtain any birth records for my grandfather in
1901 is appreciated.


I do not know Pennsylvania/Philadelphia records but in New York we have
special or delayed birth records. Even though you grandfather was born 5
years before they started keeping records it is very possible later in life
he needed a birth certificate.

I would check with Philadelphia to see how they would have handled such a
request and if they have a separate file of certificates that were issued
years later.

In New York you find some that seem to correlate to when the child would
have started school or even 50 years later. If he ever filed for a passport
for example he would have needed proof of citizenship which is most often
his birth certificate.

In New York they estimate that up to a quarter of all births went unreported
because children were born at home with a midwife. It was her responsibility
to file the certificates but often they were local immigrants too with the
same language issues, fear of authorities, etc. as the immigrants themselves.
