Looking for descendants of Celia Klein and Bernard Goodman #hungary

richaroth@...
 

Hi Everyone,
Trying to find any descendants of Celia Klein Goodman and Bernard (Barnett)
Goodman of NYC. Celia Klein was born about 1870 in I believe Ungvar, Hungary (now
Uzghorrod, Ukraine) to Abraham and Kati Markowitz Klein, emigrated to NY about 1890, married Bernard Goodman and had at least 5 children, Herman (who was a famous dermatologist) b. 1894, Martin b. 1897, George, Sadie and Morris. She died in 1948 in NYC and is buried in Mt Hebron Cemetery. I am related to Celia Goodman's sister-in-law, Esther Roth Klein.
Thanks for any leads to such descendants.

Yizkor Book Project, March 2018 #subcarpathia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

It wouldn't surprise me to find you munching on matzot while reading
this month's Yizkor Book report. If you are or are not, I do hope this
finds you having a very enjoyable Passover/Pesach holiday.

And on Pesach, I hope that this report will be somewhat shorter than
the "Hagadah", although there is quite a lot to report. However, just
like in the seder, you are allowed a meal break in the middle of
reading this, if you need...

To begin with, we have added in the complete translation of yet
another Yizkor book. This time it is the Zakroczym, Poland book which
was ably coordinated by Mitchell Eisenberg. The whole translation is
indeed now online, however, we still require some financial assistance
in meeting the costs of this translation. If you are able to assist in
this matter, please look for the Zakroczym listing in the Translations
Funds link at the end of this report.

And on Translations Funds, I'm pleased to report that over the past
month, two such additional funds were set up. One for the Dynow,
Poland Yizkor book and another for the Jezierzany (Ozeryany) Yizkor
book. We are endeavoring to advance the translations of these books
and have set up these funds in an effort to achieve this goal. Once
again, if you are able to financially assist in any way to these
projects or any other for that matter, listed amongst our 80 odd
funds, please go to the link at the end of the report.

This month, we gratefully received a number of entries >from the
"Preserving Our Litvak Heritage - Volume II" and , in the near future,
all of this book will be online. For those who are interested, this
book is also available in print and purchase details can be found via
the Yizkor Books in Print Project link at the end of this report.

A further addition last month to the Yizkor Book projects was a free
download link kindly provided by Meir G, Gover to his book
"Thessaloniki Lost Jewish Cemetery". The book contains a 1,230 surname
necrology which provide basis for most all modern day Sephardic
surnames. The necrology in the last part of the book is also a
skeleton surname list for the 50,000 Thessaloniki Shoah victims. You
will find the link to this book in our Translations Index under
Thessalonaki, Greece.

I often note that the bulk of the activities that are carried out in
the Yizkor Book site are carried out by a myriad of volunteers. As
some token of appreciation, we try to note their significant
contribution by listing them in our ever-growing list of volunteers on
the main Yizkor Book Project page: https://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/

I was recently and rightly prompted that the list hadn't been updated
for a while and, as such, I have now added some more volunteers to the
over 600 names already appearing there. If I've missed adding any
volunteer who has worked on our project, please let me know and I will
right the wrong.

One volunteer who did assist us greatly in the Yizkor Book Project was
Toby Bird z"l and, I was recently informed that sadly, she had passed
away. Her tireless, ever readiness to assist will not be forgotten and
her memory blessed.

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

White passport #lithuania

Julian & Sharon Peerutin
 

Hi,

I recently found a reference for a family member that states ' On May 3,
1910, got a white passport valid for one year. Signature, intercessor was
her father, Fayvish Levin.'

Can anyone explain what a white passport is?

Thanks
