Neamtz County records. #romania

I would like to announce the completion of a new major acquisition
project of the Botosani research group.
Our team has acquired the available civil state records >from the
earliest times to 1914 of the three major cities in the Neamtz county
of Romania - Piatra Neamtz, Roman and Targu Neamtz. About 90 thousands
photos of records have been acquired. That is a lot of indexing work
that needs to be done before we will be able to perform research.
Following this acquisition, we hold records >from 7 of the historical
counties of the old Kingdom of Romania: Botosani, Dorohoi, Suceava
(after 1918 Baia), Vaslui, Falciu, Neamtz and Roman. In Botosani we
have the records >from all of the Jewish locations, in the other
counties it is usually the county seat.

Yizkor Book Project, April 2017 #dna

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

As Israel recently celebrated its 69th year, it's significant to note that
one of the articles added this past month to the Yizkor Book Project was by
David Ben Gurion, Israel's first Prime Minister. The article provides his
youthful recollections of his hometown of Plonsk, Poland and events in this
community relating to the establishment of the Jewish State.

In what has almost become a regular monthly event, once again, I am pleased
to announce the completion of a further two Yizkor Book projects. The first
being the Rokiskis (Lithuania) book "Yizkor book of Rakishok and environs"
which owes its success to the untiring dedication of Tim Baker over many
years. Our grateful thanks go out to him for carrying this important project
through to its successful completion.

The other project that was completed this past month is "Bricha" (Escape)
which is yet another compilation by William Leibner who continues to provide
the Yizkor Book Project with a myriad of his works relating to the Holocaust
and the destroyed Jewish communities. His important contribution to the YB
Project is very much appreciated and I should point out that one of the new
entries added in April comes >from a new compilation of his, which includes
information on a number of communities in the Novyy Yarychiv (Ukraine)
vicinity.

Another new addition this past month comes >from Mike Jackoboice who kindly
donated a report that he prepared on the Jakobowicz name. The report
obviously has particular interest to those of you with connections to this
surname, but also has relevance to the community of Kalisz (Poland) and the
Holocaust in general, and is worth reading.

Finally, we recently set up a Wolomin Translations Fund in order to raise
money for the professional translation of the "Volomin; a memorial to the
Jewish community of Volomin" book. For those of you with roots in this
community, you are invited to support this important project listed on our
JewishGen-erosity Translation Funds page
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23

Yizkor Book Project, April 2017 #belarus

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

As Israel recently celebrated its 69th year, it's significant to note that
one of the articles added this past month to the Yizkor Book Project was by
David Ben Gurion, Israel's first Prime Minister. The article provides his
youthful recollections of his hometown of Plonsk, Poland and events in this
community relating to the establishment of the Jewish State.

In what has almost become a regular monthly event, once again, I am pleased
to announce the completion of a further two Yizkor Book projects. The first
being the Rokiskis (Lithuania) book "Yizkor book of Rakishok and environs"
which owes its success to the untiring dedication of Tim Baker over many
years. Our grateful thanks go out to him for carrying this important project
through to its successful completion.

The other project that was completed this past month is "Bricha" (Escape)
which is yet another compilation by William Leibner who continues to provide
the Yizkor Book Project with a myriad of his works relating to the Holocaust
and the destroyed Jewish communities. His important contribution to the YB
Project is very much appreciated and I should point out that one of the new
entries added in April comes >from a new compilation of his, which includes
information on a number of communities in the Novyy Yarychiv (Ukraine)
vicinity.

Another new addition this past month comes >from Mike Jackoboice who kindly
donated a report that he prepared on the Jakobowicz name. The report
obviously has particular interest to those of you with connections to this
surname, but also has relevance to the community of Kalisz (Poland) and the
Holocaust in general, and is worth reading.

Finally, we recently set up a Wolomin Translations Fund in order to raise
money for the professional translation of the "Volomin; a memorial to the
Jewish community of Volomin" book. For those of you with roots in this
community, you are invited to support this important project listed on our
JewishGen-erosity Translation Funds page

General question about researching male vs. female relatives #belarus

Jonathan D. Sher, OD, FAAO <jdsherod@...>
 

The following question is for those that work with outside researchers.
More specifically, if you are using a researcher in the area where your
relatives once lived,
do you find that it's easier to locate information on male relatives as
opposed to female relatives?
One of my researchers has exhausted all avenues of research on my great
grandfather (Schereshefsky), so I am wondering if it's worth spending
money to try looking for
background on his wife (Predmeska)?
Thanks,
Jonathan D. Sher, OD
Looking for Schereshefsky, Predmeska, Treskov, and Swerdlov

Yizkor Books #YizkorBooks Yizkor Book Project, April 2017 #yizkorbooks

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

As Israel recently celebrated its 69th year, it's significant to note that
one of the articles added this past month to the Yizkor Book Project was by
David Ben Gurion, Israel's first Prime Minister. The article provides his
youthful recollections of his hometown of Plonsk, Poland and events in this
community relating to the establishment of the Jewish State.

In what has almost become a regular monthly event, once again, I am pleased
to announce the completion of a further two Yizkor Book projects. The first
being the Rokiskis (Lithuania) book "Yizkor book of Rakishok and environs"
which owes its success to the untiring dedication of Tim Baker over many
years. Our grateful thanks go out to him for carrying this important project
through to its successful completion.

The other project that was completed this past month is "Bricha" (Escape)
which is yet another compilation by William Leibner who continues to provide
the Yizkor Book Project with a myriad of his works relating to the Holocaust
and the destroyed Jewish communities. His important contribution to the YB
Project is very much appreciated and I should point out that one of the new
entries added in April comes >from a new compilation of his, which includes
information on a number of communities in the Novyy Yarychiv (Ukraine)
vicinity.

Another new addition this past month comes >from Mike Jackoboice who kindly
donated a report that he prepared on the Jakobowicz name. The report
obviously has particular interest to those of you with connections to this
surname, but also has relevance to the community of Kalisz (Poland) and the
Holocaust in general, and is worth reading.

Finally, we recently set up a Wolomin Translations Fund in order to raise
money for the professional translation of the "Volomin; a memorial to the
Jewish community of Volomin" book. For those of you with roots in this
community, you are invited to support this important project listed on our
JewishGen-erosity Translation Funds page
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
where you'll also find around 80 other projects calmly waiting for your
monetary support.

in the Yizkor Book Project in April.

(Netherlands) Amsterdam's Jewish Library Ets Haim--World's' Oldest Functional Library #sephardic

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Ets Haim, in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, is the world's oldest functional
Jewish library. Its origins were >from Sephardic Jews in 1639, many who fled
the Inquisition in Spain and Portugal funded a school and meeting place for
their newfound religious freedom, which today is Ets Haim. In 1675 it moved
to the Portuguese Synagogue and 200 years later the librarian of the time
donated his 20,000 books, manuscripts and illustrations to Ets Haim. During
Nazi occupation the library contents were shipped to Germany, but today they
are back in Amsterdam with approximately 30,000 printed work=s dating back
to 1484 and 500 mansucripts dating back to 1282!

Ets Haim has been digitizing its manuscript for ease of accessibility. Go
to: http://etshaimmanuscripts.nl/manuscripts/ and select a category such as
"Jewish question and Inquisition" or "History" or other categories to view
the manuscript. This is a work in progress so not all 500 manuscripts are
fully digitized.
