Plans for a database of official name changes in Israel 1949-79 #ukraine

The Israel Genealogical Society is grateful to IAJGS for the awarding
of the 2010 Stern Grant at the 30th IAJGS conference in Los Angeles.
The first project this grant will be used for is the preparation of a
database of name changes publicized in the Yalkut Hapirsumim of the
Israeli Government starting in 1949. As the information is extracted
from each volume, the information will be added to a database on the
IGS website open to the public. IGS believes this new database will be
a helpful in breaking down brick walls in genealogical research in
Israel.

Family NUSSBAUM Germany to USA? #general

Ernest Kallmann
 

In my research for descendants of Jakob MEYER >from Dransfeld I am searching the 3
children of Karl NUSSBAUM (b. 1893 Aachen) and Franziska SCHEYE (b. 1893
Vallendar), both deported to Auschwitz >from Rheydt. The children's given names are
Erwin, Lieselotte and Adolph. In a hand-drawn family tree, probably drawn after
WWII, the mother is named Frances SCHEIL, I assume the children may have emigrated
to an English-speaking country.

Neither the FTJP nor the JGFF have been of any help. Please respond privately.

Ernest Kallmann, suburban Paris, France

Jakob MEYER, 1786-1848, has volunteered in the Westphalian Army and fought in Spain
and in Russia under Napoleon. He has left memoirs, published in 1836, 1837 and 1838
in Gottingen. They reflect how a young Jew sees this period and how the author's
charm and personality help him to survive.

Shalom,

I do hope those who attended the recent IAJGS conference left it with
renewed energy and motivation to continue your genealogical research.
Of course, if your research leads you to the realm of Yizkor Books,
I am here to help and direct you.

Meanwhile, the Yizkor Book Project continues to hold a wealth of
genealogical and historical information and to improve access to this
precious data, we recently initiated something called the Yizkor Book Master
Name Index (YBMNI) Project. The aim of this project is to collect all the
names appearing in the Yizkor Book translations (apart >from necrologies),
to organize them into a database through which researchers can seek out
names and be directed to the online translated pages themselves.

We have been very fortunate in that Osnat Hazan has agreed to be the YBMNI
Project Manager and together with a small group of volunteers, has begun
the enormous task of collecting and organizing this data. The YBMNI is
located at: http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Yizkor/Names/

If you have a good understanding of Excel, are methodical, have time
available and would like to assist in this groundbreaking project,
please contact Osnat via the link appearing on the main YBMNI page.

Montefiore Censuses are now on line #galicia

Billie Stein <billie.stein@...>
 

The Israel Genealogical Society is proud to announce the
launching of the online Beta website of the 19th Century
Montefiore Censuses of the Jewish Population of Eretz Israel,
Alexandria, Beirut and Sidon (Saida). The details recorded
include personal and family particulars, occupations and cities
and countries of origin, many of which are in Galicia. The
censuses are unusually comprehensive as it is estimated that
fewer than 1% of the Jewish inhabitants of Eretz Israel refused
to participate because of religious scruples. Some others may
not be included for personal or political reasons.

The manuscripts belong to the Montefiore Endowment and are
held in its library in London, where they can be seen by
appointment. They are written in Hebrew, in a variety of scripts.
Many of the pages are difficult to read and, lacking any index,
the tracing of individuals is time-consuming.

Beginning in 2008, the Israel Genealogical Society, under the
auspices of the Montefiore Endowment, has been working on
transcribing the censuses into a modern Hebrew font,
transliterate the names, and translate the data into English. This
immense labour is being undertaken by teams of dedicated
volunteers; and the censuses are now in the process of being
published on-line for the first time, together with a search
engine in Hebrew and in English to facilitate the finding of
individual names and families. Extended families are linked
together, and there is a link to the digitized manuscript page.

In all, there are 5 censuses of Eretz Israel (including Beirut and
Sidon), and one of Alexandria. At present, the censuses of
1839, 1840 (Alexandria) and 1855 are on line at
http://www.montefioreendowment.org.uk/census/.
The census of 1849 will follow in the next few months.

Billie Stein
Israel Genealogical Society -
President, Tel Aviv Branch and Montefiore Census Project Coordinator

MODERATOR NOTE: Be sure to go to Advanced Search and
view the drop down list of Places of Birth. It includes at
least 35 Galician towns.

Searching records of Birth, Marriage and Death #poland

In the past I have been successful in finding such records for Przasnysz,
PO. However, my dad came >from Swislowitz/Sislevitz/Swislotz/Grodno Gubernia
Volkyvysk, Russia. This area is now in Belarus. However, I have searched
everywhere I know to search in the databases for records of birth, marriage
and death using the surname LIEBERMAN. My grandfather was Samson/Shimshon
and my grandmother was Alta Neome AIN LIEBERMAN.

My dad, Shmuel Yishaiyah/Samuel Isiah, was born in 1887. His brothers -
Moise/Morris was born in 1891 and Mendel/Max was born in 1893. If I can find
their births, perhaps I can find the births of their 2 sisters who stayed
behind to be with their parents.

Can someone please answer privately and direct me to the proper search
pattern for this information? I would be most grateful.

Catherine, if you search for Copen Hagen Street, Leeds.

? Did I miss the reason to the celebration? Intermarriage? Assimilation ?
As I understand , JewishGen 's vision is : " ensuring Jewish
continuity for present generations and the generations yet to come " .
Will this wedding help Jewish continuity?

Hello,

In response to Catherine >from Vancouver about Copenhagen St, Leeds.
Catherine, if you search for Copen Hagen Street, Leeds.
(with the split like two separate words) you will find it.
My grandfather lived in 50, Copenhagen St before he married in 1890.
He later moved into 37, Back Byron St.

Yizkor Book Project, July 2010 #austria-czech

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I do hope those who attended the recent IAJGS conference left it with
renewed energy and motivation to continue your genealogical research.
Of course, if your research leads you to the realm of Yizkor Books,
I am here to help and direct you.

Meanwhile, the Yizkor Book Project continues to hold a wealth of
genealogical and historical information and to improve access to this
precious data, we recently initiated something called the Yizkor Book Master
Name Index (YBMNI) Project. The aim of this project is to collect all the
names appearing in the Yizkor Book translations (apart >from necrologies),
to organize them into a database through which researchers can seek out
names and be directed to the online translated pages themselves.

We have been very fortunate in that Osnat Hazan has agreed to be the YBMNI
Project Manager and together with a small group of volunteers, has begun
the enormous task of collecting and organizing this data. The YBMNI is
located at: http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Yizkor/Names/

If you have a good understanding of Excel, are methodical, have time
available and would like to assist in this groundbreaking project,
please contact Osnat via the link appearing on the main YBMNI page.
