Yizkor Book Project, July 2013 #danzig #gdansk #germany #poland

Shalom,

With the Boston IAJGS conference just around the corner, I am quite
certain that this month's Yizkor Book Project report finds many of you
making your final preparations before the big event. Unfortunately, I
am unable to be there but, very fortunately for those that will, once
again Jan Meisels Allen has graciously agreed to the Yizkor Book Birds
of a Feather meeting and this is an open invitation to attend.

During July, a further two books have been published through our Yizkor
Books in Print Project:

- Jaslo, Poland - Yizkor (Memorial) Book of the Jewish Community of
Jaslo, Poland
- Telekhany, Belarus - The Telekhan Yizkor Book

With these new additions, we have now published 18 books and you can see
the full list of these books and read all about the project at
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html We continue to be amazed by the
very positive response to this project which we set up as a public service
to those interested in seeing these translations as something that they
can hold in their hands and share with their family.

I am also pleased to note that during July, we finished placing the
complete and substantial English sections >from the Brzozow and Dobromil
Yizkor books which were kindly typed up by Helen Rosenstein Wolf and Susan
Dressler, respectively. As I always note, there are many aspects of the
Yizkor Book Project in which we gladly welcome volunteer assistance and
typing up is just one of these. So if you would like to become involved in
the YB Project in some way, I would be happy to hear >from you.

Now to facts and figures for July, during this last month we have added
these 3 new projects:

Searching: Hyman ISCOLDSKY from Mir #belarus

Ivor Barnett <ivorb2001@...>
 

I am researching Hyman ISCOLDSKY, who lived in Mir. He died in approximately
1900. He had at least 7 children named: Samuel, Jacob and Simon, who went to
Scotland between 1886 and 1902, Simcha and Yitschak, who went to Israel, one
of whom was a founder member of Kibbutz Ein Harod and 2 others who supposedly
went to the USA, 1 of whom lived in New Jersey.
The spelling of the surname ISCOLDSKY is dubious but should be approximate
as I am in possession of naturalisation papers for Simon where he spells his
name "ISCOLDSKY".
If anybody has any information that they wish to share, it would be very
appreciated.

Ivor Barnett
MODERATOR NOTE: General information may be sent to the list.
Specific family information should be sent privately

Re: Name of a Shtetl #belarus

Orit Lavi
 

Dear friends

Adrienne Lasky asked about a town "Shebib", in close proximity to Iwye.
Possibly, the town is Vselyub. Jews referred to it as Shelub, which
can easily be read as Shebib.

Vselyub is located 15 miles south of Iwye, 8 miles north of Navahrudak
(Nowogrodek).

Good luck

Hart and Moses Phillips #general

Tony Chaplin <linda.chaplin@...>
 

I have recently discovered a 4xgreat grandfather who was a Jewish convict
sent to Tasmania (van Dieman's Land) >from London in 1820. Very exciting -
the first Jewish person and first convict in my very English family tree!!
His name was Moses Phillips and he married another convict soon after his
arrival in Tasmania and went on to produce a large family. I have his death
certificate which lists his parents as Hart and Sarah Phillips. I managed
to find them on the 1841 English Census (he is listed as 'Chort') living in
Whitechapel. In 1851, Hart was living with his daughter Deborah Bendon
(Abendana)and his birthplace is listed as Germany. His year of birth would
be about 1767. H died in 1860. I have found some of his daughter Deborah's
descendants who went to America but little else.

Where could I find more information? Would Hart Phillips also have a German
or Jewish name? Where did he come >from and when? Who was Sarah? Was she
English? Were there other children? Moses Phillips supposedly had a wife
and 5 to 12 children when he was transported - what happened to them?

I would very much appreciate any help or suggestions as I have no idea where
to start looking.

Thank you
