Yizkor Book Project, August 2016 #danzig #gdansk #germany #poland

Shalom,

You may or may not be aware, during IAJGS conference in Seattle in August
2016, the JewishGen Yizkor Book Project received the Outstanding Project
Award! This was more than wonderful news and a wide recognition of our
combined achievements in the YB Project. As such, I would like all of you
who have been involved in the Yizkor Book Project in some way or another to
now give yourself a very hearty pat on the back - you certainly do deserve
it and your efforts are greatly appreciated!

So as not to disappoint and endeavor to maintain our project in its
"outstanding" status, during August, we continued to add on and update the
translations available online. There are a number of books that are just a
hairsbreadth distance >from being fully translated and online and do hope to
be able to inform you about the completed projects in my next report, in
perfect timing for Rosh Hashana (New Year).

At the same time, other aspects of the Yizkor Book Project continue to make
headway and pleased to let you know that two books have recently been
published by the "never-standing-still" Yizkor Books in Print Project. The
books are:

- "Remembering Dvinsk" which covers the Jewish community of Daugavpils,
Latvia.
- "Trilogy of Three Romanian Jewish Communities: Bacau, Iasi and Podu
Iloaiei" which is due to be made available within the nearest future.

As always, I salute Joel Alpert and his team who have made nearly 50 books
available since the instigation of this project in April 2011 - an amazing
achievement by any standards.

Still, as I regularly point out to reach a point where you have a fully
translated Yizkor book in hand does require time, patience and, in
particular, quite substantial financial support. Our recommendation to raise
money and pay for the professional translation of a Yizkor book is to set up
a JewishGen Translations Fund into which people interested in seeing their
community book translated, can donate towards this lofty goal. It should be
noted that donations to these funds are tax-exempt for US citizens - a
further important consideration. Just this past month, a number of such
funds have been set up and translation begun and others are presently in the
process of being setup and will join our 70 odd Translations Funds. So if
you are interested in seeing a particular book translated via a Translations
Fund, please contact me and I will explain how it is possible to go forward
with such a project.

And now for all the changes and additions that were carried out in the
Yizkor Book Project over August.

We have added in one new book:

- Vilnius, Lithuania (Scroll of Vilnius)

Yizkor Book Project, August 2016 #courland #latvia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

You may or may not be aware, during IAJGS conference in Seattle in August
2016, the JewishGen Yizkor Book Project received the Outstanding Project
Award! This was more than wonderful news and a wide recognition of our
combined achievements in the YB Project. As such, I would like all of you
who have been involved in the Yizkor Book Project in some way or another to
now give yourself a very hearty pat on the back - you certainly do deserve
it and your efforts are greatly appreciated!

So as not to disappoint and endeavor to maintain our project in its
"outstanding" status, during August, we continued to add on and update the
translations available online. There are a number of books that are just a
hairsbreadth distance >from being fully translated and online and do hope to
be able to inform you about the completed projects in my next report, in
perfect timing for Rosh Hashana (New Year).

At the same time, other aspects of the Yizkor Book Project continue to make
headway and pleased to let you know that two books have recently been
published by the "never-standing-still" Yizkor Books in Print Project. The
books are:

- "Remembering Dvinsk" which covers the Jewish community of Daugavpils,
Latvia.
- "Trilogy of Three Romanian Jewish Communities: Bacau, Iasi and Podu
Iloaiei" which is due to be made available within the nearest future.

As always, I salute Joel Alpert and his team who have made nearly 50 books
available since the instigation of this project in April 2011 - an amazing
achievement by any standards.

Still, as I regularly point out to reach a point where you have a fully
translated Yizkor book in hand does require time, patience and, in
particular, quite substantial financial support. Our recommendation to raise
money and pay for the professional translation of a Yizkor book is to set up
a JewishGen Translations Fund into which people interested in seeing their
community book translated, can donate towards this lofty goal. It should be
noted that donations to these funds are tax-exempt for US citizens - a
further important consideration. Just this past month, a number of such
funds have been set up and translation begun and others are presently in the
process of being setup and will join our 70 odd Translations Funds. So if
you are interested in seeing a particular book translated via a Translations
Fund, please contact me and I will explain how it is possible to go forward
with such a project.

And now for all the changes and additions that were carried out in the
Yizkor Book Project over August.

We have added in one new book:

- Vilnius, Lithuania (Scroll of Vilnius)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Vilnius/Vilnius.html

We have also added in two new entries:

Romania SIG #Romania Yizkor Book Project, August 2016 #romania

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

You may or may not be aware, during IAJGS conference in Seattle in August
2016, the JewishGen Yizkor Book Project received the Outstanding Project
Award! This was more than wonderful news and a wide recognition of our
combined achievements in the YB Project. As such, I would like all of you
who have been involved in the Yizkor Book Project in some way or another to
now give yourself a very hearty pat on the back - you certainly do deserve
it and your efforts are greatly appreciated!

So as not to disappoint and endeavor to maintain our project in its
"outstanding" status, during August, we continued to add on and update the
translations available online. There are a number of books that are just a
hairsbreadth distance >from being fully translated and online and do hope to
be able to inform you about the completed projects in my next report, in
perfect timing for Rosh Hashana (New Year).

At the same time, other aspects of the Yizkor Book Project continue to make
headway and pleased to let you know that two books have recently been
published by the "never-standing-still" Yizkor Books in Print Project. The
books are:

- "Remembering Dvinsk" which covers the Jewish community of Daugavpils,
Latvia.
- "Trilogy of Three Romanian Jewish Communities: Bacau, Iasi and Podu
Iloaiei" which is due to be made available within the nearest future.

As always, I salute Joel Alpert and his team who have made nearly 50 books
available since the instigation of this project in April 2011 - an amazing
achievement by any standards.

Still, as I regularly point out to reach a point where you have a fully
translated Yizkor book in hand does require time, patience and, in
particular, quite substantial financial support. Our recommendation to raise
money and pay for the professional translation of a Yizkor book is to set up
a JewishGen Translations Fund into which people interested in seeing their
community book translated, can donate towards this lofty goal. It should be
noted that donations to these funds are tax-exempt for US citizens - a
further important consideration. Just this past month, a number of such
funds have been set up and translation begun and others are presently in the
process of being setup and will join our 70 odd Translations Funds. So if
you are interested in seeing a particular book translated via a Translations
Fund, please contact me and I will explain how it is possible to go forward
with such a project.

And now for all the changes and additions that were carried out in the
Yizkor Book Project over August.

We have added in one new book:

- Vilnius, Lithuania (Scroll of Vilnius)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Vilnius/Vilnius.html

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Yizkor Book Project, August 2016 #ukraine

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

You may or may not be aware, during IAJGS conference in Seattle in August
2016, the JewishGen Yizkor Book Project received the Outstanding Project
Award! This was more than wonderful news and a wide recognition of our
combined achievements in the YB Project. As such, I would like all of you
who have been involved in the Yizkor Book Project in some way or another to
now give yourself a very hearty pat on the back - you certainly do deserve
it and your efforts are greatly appreciated!

So as not to disappoint and endeavor to maintain our project in its
"outstanding" status, during August, we continued to add on and update the
translations available online. There are a number of books that are just a
hairsbreadth distance >from being fully translated and online and do hope to
be able to inform you about the completed projects in my next report, in
perfect timing for Rosh Hashana (New Year).

At the same time, other aspects of the Yizkor Book Project continue to make
headway and pleased to let you know that two books have recently been
published by the "never-standing-still" Yizkor Books in Print Project. The
books are:

- "Remembering Dvinsk" which covers the Jewish community of Daugavpils,
Latvia.
- "Trilogy of Three Romanian Jewish Communities: Bacau, Iasi and Podu
Iloaiei" which is due to be made available within the nearest future.

As always, I salute Joel Alpert and his team who have made nearly 50 books
available since the instigation of this project in April 2011 - an amazing
achievement by any standards.

Still, as I regularly point out to reach a point where you have a fully
translated Yizkor book in hand does require time, patience and, in
particular, quite substantial financial support. Our recommendation to raise
money and pay for the professional translation of a Yizkor book is to set up
a JewishGen Translations Fund into which people interested in seeing their
community book translated, can donate towards this lofty goal. It should be
noted that donations to these funds are tax-exempt for US citizens - a
further important consideration. Just this past month, a number of such
funds have been set up and translation begun and others are presently in the
process of being setup and will join our 70 odd Translations Funds. So if
you are interested in seeing a particular book translated via a Translations
Fund, please contact me and I will explain how it is possible to go forward
with such a project.

And now for all the changes and additions that were carried out in the
Yizkor Book Project over August.

We have added in one new book:

- Vilnius, Lithuania (Scroll of Vilnius)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Vilnius/Vilnius.html

JGS Conejo Valley and Ventura County September 11 Program: Manifest Destiny - Names at Ellis Island #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County
(JGSCV) will meet on Sunday, 11 September >from 1:30-3:30 pm.Our meeting is
co-sponsored by and held at Temple Adat Elohim 2420 E Hillcrest Drive,
Thousand Oaks, CA 91362.

Topic: Manifest Destiny - Names at Ellis Island

Program: About 70% of immigrants to the U.S. during 1892 through 1924
came through the Ellis Island immigration station. The island's history
including the Wall of Honor, and the changing questions on ship manifest
forms will be shown. The pressures of the "Great Migration" eventually
led to immigration quotas. The persistent myth of name changes at Ellis
Island will be analyzed. About twenty percent of processed immigrants
ended up on detention/special inquiry sheets, and will be shown where
those can be found. Finally, all five (5!) of the ship name indexes will be
introduced.

After this talk the audience should have a clear idea of the process the
immigrants went through, and a greater appreciation of the manifest as a
genealogy research tool. Original material will be displayed.

Speaker: Joel Weintraub is a New Yorker by birth, is an emeritus Professor
at California State University Fullerton and won awards for his science
teaching. He volunteered for nine years at the National Archives and
Records Administration. Joel created search tools for the U.S. and New
York City censuses that are freely available on the Steve Morse "One-Step"
website. He and Steve are currently developing locational tools for the
2022 release of the 1950 federal census. Joel has written and talked
on NYC and Federal census research, immigration and naturalization, Ellis
Island, biographical research, and Jewish genealogy topics.

Traveling Library will have category A and C books. To see which they
are you can check on our website under Library- traveling:
www.jgscv.org.

The Traveling Library will be available starting at 1:00 p.m.

Schmoozing Corner will be facilitated by Werner Frank JGSCV founding
member. The 'corner' starts at 1:10 PM

For directions and other information about JGSCV please see our website
at:
www.JGSCV.org.

There is no charge to attend the meeting. Anyone may join JGSCV.

open to the public.

The Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County
is dedicated to sharing genealogical information, techniques and research
tools with anyone interested in genealogy and family history.

Looking forward to seeing you on 11 September

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Yizkor Book Project, August 2016 #general

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

You may or may not be aware, during IAJGS conference in Seattle in August
2016, the JewishGen Yizkor Book Project received the Outstanding Project
Award! This was more than wonderful news and a wide recognition of our
combined achievements in the YB Project. As such, I would like all of you
who have been involved in the Yizkor Book Project in some way or another to
now give yourself a very hearty pat on the back - you certainly do deserve
it and your efforts are greatly appreciated!

So as not to disappoint and endeavor to maintain our project in its
"outstanding" status, during August, we continued to add on and update the
translations available online. There are a number of books that are just a
hairsbreadth distance >from being fully translated and online and do hope to
be able to inform you about the completed projects in my next report, in
perfect timing for Rosh Hashana (New Year).

At the same time, other aspects of the Yizkor Book Project continue to make
headway and pleased to let you know that two books have recently been
published by the "never-standing-still" Yizkor Books in Print Project. The
books are:

- "Remembering Dvinsk" which covers the Jewish community of Daugavpils,
Latvia.
- "Trilogy of Three Romanian Jewish Communities: Bacau, Iasi and Podu
Iloaiei" which is due to be made available within the nearest future.

As always, I salute Joel Alpert and his team who have made nearly 50 books
available since the instigation of this project in April 2011 - an amazing
achievement by any standards.

Still, as I regularly point out to reach a point where you have a fully
translated Yizkor book in hand does require time, patience and, in
particular, quite substantial financial support. Our recommendation to raise
money and pay for the professional translation of a Yizkor book is to set up
a JewishGen Translations Fund into which people interested in seeing their
community book translated, can donate towards this lofty goal. It should be
noted that donations to these funds are tax-exempt for US citizens - a
further important consideration. Just this past month, a number of such
funds have been set up and translation begun and others are presently in the
process of being setup and will join our 70 odd Translations Funds. So if
you are interested in seeing a particular book translated via a Translations
Fund, please contact me and I will explain how it is possible to go forward
with such a project.

And now for all the changes and additions that were carried out in the
Yizkor Book Project over August.
