SITE CITE - Re: name adoption list in Groningen [and Jewish Genealogy research in Holland] #germany

Gerhard Buck <gbuckidstein22@...>
 

Genealogical research in the Netherlands is easy, because it is well
organized. The first address is;
www.nljewgen.org the website of the Nederlandse Kring voor
Joodse Genealogie / Netherlands Society of Jewish Genealogy.
There you find information for all parts of the Netherlands.

Direct access to a person in all the archives of the country offers
https://www.wiewaswie.nl (who was who) with a version in English. If
you are lucky, the final stage of a long way is a digitized document.
This website is very useful for information about persons who fled
from Germany around 1940 and of whom you only know their names.
However, patience is required until one has understood, how the system
works. In the present case, the name Levie Jacob Meyer/Meijer has too
many spelling variations for rapid findings.

For research in Groningen I recommend the website of the city archive
www.groningerarchieven.nl or the e-mail address
info@groningerarchieven.nl

Does anyone know of a good source for old Hungarian Jewish books?

There are two books of interest to my family which were lost in the Shoah. =
One is a book on education written by my great-grandfather, Mor Gondos; it =
is possible the book was published under his previous name, Mor Goldmann. =
We do not know the name or year of publication. It would be before 1931. =
The other is a yearbook of the Makkabea (sp?), the Zionist student organiza=

Stopersteine in Ahrweiler Germany #germany

On a recent visit to Ahrweiler in Germany we stayed at the Am Weissen
Turm hotel. Opposite the hotel is the old Jewish synagogue with is
now used for events.

Nothing strange in that you may say. But what was strange was that in
the hotel room along with the usual literature was a brochure listing
all the stolpersteine to be found in Ahrweiler and its twin town,
Bad Neuenahr. Maps indicated the position of the stones and a page
of text and photos was included.

In Bad Neuenahr, 12 families are listed while Ahrweiler has 8 families.

Heinrich Wallach #general

ronald Wallace
 

I am trying to trace a Heinrich Wallach who was born in Bad Suelze in
Mecklenburg in December of 1857. He was Adopted by the Heymanson Family (His
Mother's family) of Luebeck after his Father died in 1870.

He came to the United States and arrived, I believe, on August 16th 1890

I have been unable to find any trace of him after that. It is likely that he
changed his name to Henry Wallach or Henry Wallace or something like that.

If anyone has any information about him, I would be most grateful.

to our website. You can access these accounts >from the "About Us"
button on the website or by following this link:
http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgen/testimonials/

** Gary Koeppel only knew that the young girl in the photos had been
transported >from Prague to England around 1939, her name was
Alexandra, she was the daughter of his paternal grandfather's sister,
and she had been placed in the home of a British family. He then began
his long search.

** Michael Diamant was searching for any living relatives on his
father's maternal side of the family. The search had gone cold when he
received an email >from a man in Poland who had read his family
description in the JewishGen Discussion Group and recognized the name
Norbert Aleksandrowicz.

** Sherry Levy-Reiner tries to unravel the mystery of her
great-grandfather's death on a voyage to Palestine in the 1920s. The
only fact was that there were no facts: no dates, no documents, no
clues. We repost this moving story >from our Archives.

JewishGen volunteers (Editor - Nancy Siegel and Webmaster - Colin

New York Genealogy Course begins June 25 #poland #ciechanow

Phyllis Kramer
 

Our mentored courses are very special...you select one branch, set
your goals, read and research and the instructor will personally
assist you. New York Research focuses on immigrant ancestors and
their immediate families in the U.S. We assume you've gathered some
census and vital records, perhaps found a manifest; we will guide you
to organize what you've done and plan your next steps. The course
features 8 online text lessons which you can read/download at your own
pace and a unique conversational FORUM for Q&A. Our forum is open
24/7; there are no set times because our students are international.

Yizkor Book Project, May 2018 #ciechanow #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

It is always very gratifying to look back and see what accomplishments
we've managed to achieve in the Yizkor Book Project over the previous
month. I would now like to outline some of these accomplishments:

To begin with, in what has become a regular section of our monthly
report, once again, I am pleased to announce the completion of a
further 3 Yizkor Book projects and they are:

- Children Train - An additional book written by the indefatigable,
William Leibner, which was carefully edited by Erica S. Goldman-Brodie
and Toby Bird z”l. We are extremely indebted to receive this further
addition to our project.
- Czestochowa, Poland (The Jews of Czestochowa) - This book has been
the "baby" of Gloria Berkenstat Freund over quite a few years.
Together with the many other translation projects she works on, she
has managed to completely translate this extensive volume. Our deep
appreciation goes out to Gloria for the completion of this project
which joins a number of other books previously translated by her on
the Czestochowa community that we have online.
- Roman, Romania (The Jewish Community of Roman) A book that was
kindly translated by a number of volunteer translators and has been
meticulously edited and translations supplemented by Yocheved
Klausner, allowing us to present the completed volume online.

We now have 150 completely online and if you are "concerned" that we
soon won't have nothing to do, we do have a further 750 Yizkor book
projects that are work in progress, so there are huge challenges still
ahead of us. We are always looking out for volunteer assistance and
financial support in our endeavor to advance these projects and if you
are able to assist in any manner, I would be pleased to hear >from you.
In particular, I would like to hear >from you if you are knowledgeable
in Hebrew or Yiddish and have a background in editing and, most
importantly, are able to volunteer some time to the project, this
would be assistance that would definitely help us go forward.

And on regular sections, again, we have the honor of announcing the
publishing of two new books through the auspices of the Yizkor Books
in Print Project, bringing the total number of books published by this
group to 70 - a humble hats off to them!

- Memorial Book of 13 Shtetls of Galicia - Another book written by
William Leibner (yes, the name is now very familiar) that was
attentively edited by Ingrid Rockberger and covers 13 communities, not
all of which, previously had their own Yizkor book.
- There Was A Shtetl In Lithuania: Dusiat Reflected In Reminiscences -
A quite considerable volume (960 pages) dedicated to the community of
Dusiat (Dusetos) which was laboriously compiled by Sara Weiss-Slep and
further painstakingly edited and produced by Hedva Scop and Olga
Zabludoff.

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

We have added in one new book:

- Monor, Hungary (Bound by Fate: In Memory of the Jewish Community of
Monor) https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Monor/Monor.html

JOWBR Update - JOWBR Grows to Over 3.3 Million Records! #poland #ciechanow

Nolan Altman
 

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2018 pre-Conference update to the JOWBR
(JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial Registry) database. The JOWBR database
can be accessed at www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/ If you're a new
JOWBR user, we recommend that you visit our screencast page at
www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Screencasts/ and take a look at the
first two explanatory screencasts.

This update, adds approximately 100,000 new records and 34,000 new photos.
The database is adding and/or updating 510 cemeteries. This update brings
JOWBR's holdings to 3.33 million records and 594,000 photos from
approximately 7,750 cemeteries / cemetery sections representing 128
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.

Significant new and updated sets to the database include collections from
Belarus, Czech Republic, Moldova, France, Germany, England, Poland, Sweden,
Russia, Ukraine, United States and Zimbabwe. We've also added a large
number of Montreal, Canada headstone photos. For a complete listing please
see www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm for of all
cemeteries in JOWBR.

I want to particularly thank Eric Feinstein who has been helping me to find
and gain permission to add many non-US records >from Germany, France and
under-represented countries. Eric's group of volunteers includes Sandra
Bennett, Lineke Bos, Malka Chosnek, George Goldschmied, Ann Meddin Hellman,
Maurice Kessler, Harriet Mayer, Hans Nord, Cori Plucer, Deborah Ross,
Marylin Shalks, and Suzanne Tarica. In addition, a big thank you to our
volunteer transliterators, led by Gilberto Jugend, without whom we would not
be able to add the information >from some very difficult to read photos.

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.

Memorial Plaques Update - Database Grows to More Than 177,500 Records. Please help us grow! #ciechanow #poland

Nolan Altman
 

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2018 pre-Conference update for the
Memorial Plaques Database (MPD). The MPD database can be accessed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/ The MPD database includes the
data >from plaques and Yizkor lists >from synagogue and other organizations.
Many of these sources include patronymic information.

This update added approximately 8,400 records and 6,900 photos. This update
brings the Memorial Plaques holdings to 177,500 records and 124,000 photos
from 263 synagogues / institutions representing 11 countries.
We believe that the MPD is a good example of how users of JewishGen's
databases can "give back". If you are a member of a synagogue or other
organization with memorial plaques or Yizkor lists, please consider helping
us to grow this database. You can find more information on submitting data
at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/Submit.htm If you have
additional questions, please contact me directly.

For a complete listing of the institutions currently in the database, please

** Gary Koeppel only knew that the young girl in the photos had been
transported >from Prague to England around 1939, her name was
Alexandra, she was the daughter of his paternal grandfather's sister,
and she had been placed in the home of a British family. He then began
his long search.

** Michael Diamant was searching for any living relatives on his
father's maternal side of the family. The search had gone cold when he
received an email >from a man in Poland who had read his family
description in the JewishGen Discussion Group and recognized the name
Norbert Aleksandrowicz.

** Sherry Levy-Reiner tries to unravel the mystery of her
great-grandfather's death on a voyage to Palestine in the 1920s. The
only fact was that there were no facts: no dates, no documents, no
clues. We repost this moving story >from our Archives.
