Looking for more volunteers to Index books for Yizkor Books In Print Project #poland

Joel Alpert
 

The Yizkor-Books-In-Print project is embarking on a initiative to
index the books we publish. If you have MS WORD and want to help at
least one hour a week, we need your help. We will teach you how to
use the indexing function of MS WORD and ask you to help with
indexing. This effort will make these books even more valuable with
indices to locate your relatives and ancestors in these books. If
think it's time to "Give Back", then here is an opportunity.

These are translations of Memorial or Yizkor books of the destroyed
Jewish communities of Europe and represents our heritage.

Kriwicz to Chelm #poland

Our Jewish Family History Research
 

Hello all:

I have searched on JRI-Poland for the following:

"Searching for Town (phonetically like) "KRIWICZ" in all regions"
The results were:

142 records >from Lublin Gubernia(all >from Chelm, Lublin Gubernia)
1 record >from Siedlce Gubernia
8 records >from Stanislawow Wojewodztwo
2 records >from Tarnopol Wojewodztwo"

One of our family branches lived in Chelm, originally >from Kriwicz.

Where would I locate the information explaining why Jewish families
relocated specifically >from Kriwicz to Chelm?
Where would I find the records for Kriwicz?

Many thanks in advance.

Correction: (Canada) 1926 Prairie Provinces Census Online at Library of Canada and FamilySearch #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

It appears that the link to the LAC is no longer working- which it was at
the time of the posting. Please try this link instead for Library and
Archives Canada: http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/census/1926/Pages/default.aspx
I apologize for any inconvenience.

On February 26 I posted to the JewishGen Discussion Group about Library and
Archives Canada (LAC) and FamilySearch working collaboratively published
the index to the 1926 Canadian census of the Prairie Provinces: Manitoba,
Saskatchewan, and Alberta. While Canada usually conducts a census every ten
years since four years after the Confederation in 1871, due to the rapidly
expanding population of the Prairie provinces a more frequent census was
undertaken in 1906-in between the Canada-wide censuses- and every ten years
thereafter.

While the indexes are up on FamilySearch at:
https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/3005862, they were not
available on LAC until March. The url then included has changed.

Thank you to IAJGS Records Access Alert reader, Harvey Zimberg for letting
me know the original url was no longer functioning.

New material, including Ataki, and Balta district residents, Podolia #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Dear Bessarabers,

We talked recently about new records for town of Soroki: Vital records,
etc.... and I asked for volunteers. One person is working on now on that
project, but we definitely need more people. Only Vital records we had
about 220 pages! Also there are synagogue lists, educational records, etc.
Please come forward to work on one of these projects.

Next important town we have a lot of new records is Ataki (Otaki, Atach),
Bessarabia (Moldova). The copies of originals are also >from Miriam Weiner's
Archival material.

Here is what already done and will be available soon:
- a page with three melameds - teachers at Kheders with total of 26
students;
- a set of records of out-of-town Jews living in towns and villages in Balta
uezd, Podolia guberbia - this is why I sent this message to Ukraine SIG
too. What is interesting about this set - it was located in Moldova Archive
in Kishinev, and that almost all of people were registered in towns in
Bessarabia, including Khotin, Brichany, Kishinev, Ataki, etc. Also that was
a full set, not just an excerpt of records.

Here is what not done yet:

- a set of signatures I found among Revision List, 1854. It looks that
there was a meeting of all Head of Households and everybody who remained in
Ataki signed the Revision. It includes meeting minutes and decisions, and
for each person handwritten surname and fist name in Russian and the
signature of that person in Hebrew/Yiddish (14 images)
- a second set is a correspondence on voting in the Ataki synagogue for the
Rabiner of the synagogue ("starosta") >from 1876-1880 >from Miriam Weiner's
collection. It also includes letters, decisions, and list of names in
Russian and signatures in Hebrew/Yiddish. In this list there were a number
of people illiterate, who did not sign the document
I think this is a very interesting information for people whose relatives
lived in Ataki.

I wish that someone with Russian will come forward to help translating all
this documents.

Actually, I really surprised that no one come forward to lead a project to
Translate Ataki Yiskor book (two volumes). It is incredible material with
a lot of photos >from different period, family stories, and more. For that
we need a person who can translate >from Hebrew. If you can translate just
1-2 chapters, that would be great already.

Please let me know if you have any questions, suggestions.

All the best,
Yefim Kogan
