Chaim Fleishd

Is anyone familiar with these people?

The actual document is in Russian and was translated into English by Morris
Asofsky, Notary Public. It reads:

We, the undersigned residents of the Town of Butrimanzi, Proksk City,
Vilensk Government, do hereby certify, that due to fair memory, that by the

Forward from Susan King #latvia

Arlene Beare <arl@...>
 

From: Susan E. King <susan.king@jewishgen.org
Subject: JewishGen's 2001 Odyssey - A Look Forward into the New
Millennium!-Second Edition <grin>
Because of an error the following message did not appear in its
entirety when it went out last night, nor did it appear in the index or
digest versions of the JewishGen Mailing List. Here's how it should have
looked to everyone! <grin>


The numbers are in... and by the looks of it... the year 2000 has
been another banner year for JewishGen, once again, no exception.
- Over 42,000 submitters in the JGFF and over 3.3 million
searches performed in 2000
- Over 1457 submitters to the Family Tree of the Jewish People
representing nearly 2,000,000 names
- Over 32,000 messages posted to JewishGen and the SIG and
Research Group mailing lists in the year 2000
- Over 36 million hits this past year to the JewishGen site with
an additional 5 million searches executed on nearly 5 million
records all powered by JewishGen's servers
- 255 Yizkor Book Translations Online up >from 155 this time last
year for a total of 100 new translations
- 422 ShtetLinks pages (up >from 319 last year) with nearly 1193
localities spoken for
Truely, an impressive set of statistics!
One has only to look at the accomplishments of this organization
over the last year to realize what can really happen when diverse
people >from all corners of this earth--numbering in the
thousands-- come together with a common mission and purpose,
participating and sharing in what we believe is one of the
largest grass roots efforts ever undertaken to preserve our
history for future generations.
And what's in store for 2001? Here are some highlights...
Data collection and indexing:
1) Through our ongoing partnerships with Yad Vashem and the
United States Holocaust Memorial Museum there are over 55 million
records awaiting us all.
2) Through JewishGen's OWBR Project, effort is well underway to
index and record millions of burials in Jewish cemeteries
throughout the world.
3) JewishGen is busily engaged in establishing and solidifying
contacts and partnerships with other organizations, institutions,
museums and with our counterparts currently living in the Eastern
European Jewish communities.
4) JewishGen has developed a plan for our database infrastructure
(All Country, All Topic, All Holocaust) which is going to take an
effort far beyond the capabilities of our current database team's
volunteer time. This means the pressing need for both full time
professional technical staff and volunteers with technical
skills.
5) JewishGen will be continuing to pursue avenues and costs for
implementing a document management and retrieval system to link
to our award winning website.
Education:
1) JewishGen has been recognized throughout the world for the
educational value of so many of our projects, including the
Yizkor Book Translation Project, ShtetLinks, ShtetlSchleppers, to
name a few. These projects are being expanded as we speak and we
look forward to everyone's participation.
2) We are developing a host of Youth Projects to educate the
younger generation and bring them into our grass roots efforts.
You'll be hearing a lot more on this throughout the new year.
3.) JewishGen has software to offer real time Chat Rooms where we
can hold ongoing lectures and classroom instruction on a host of
topics of interest to us all.
Fundraising:
1) JewishGen is in final preparations of both a strategic plan
and fundraising outline to present to funding organizations all
over the world.
2) JewishGen has just launched the JewishGenMall and is
continuing to expand the products and resource materials
available.
3) JewishGen must increase the number of financial supporters
among the tens of thousands who use our services. We improved
this year and are now up to 2,146 contributors which is progress,
but still represents only a very tiny fraction of those who use
JewishGen daily.
We do want to thank all of you who have come forward this past
year in sharing your knowledge, your skills and your financial
resources.
To insure this is a 2001 Odyssey for all of us, we can only lay the
groundwork to achieve the project goals and to just maintain the
current level of usage. We must all begin to ask some very
serious questions of ourselves:
Where can I best get involved?
What skills can I bring to this table?
What project is most interesting to me so that I can feel a
part of this worthy effort?
How can I help, individually and through contacts, to assist
JewishGen reach the financial level it must to properly staff and
manage all these projects for me and my family, today and into
the future?
Please let us know your interests by reading and answering the
requests we will be making for volunteers in the near future.
Please share your ideas and your skills so we can find a place
for you on this team. And please, help us get a jump start into
the new millennium with a tax deductible contribution so we can
all begin to concentrate on these invaluable projects rather than
on "Imagining the World..."! <grin>
So, despite the continuing growth and despite the day to day
challenges of the year 2000, here we go! We are off into 2001,
into a new millennium...sharing all the thrills and joys of
connecting and re-connecting family...of educating and bringing
new meaning to our Jewish heritage, one we hope you will share
with us... in peace, in health and with a new prosperity.
Below you will find a message that came into JewishGen's Yizkor
Book Project which verbalizes some of the meaning of the work
everyone is doing to preserve our history for future generations.
Perhaps, after the first reading it will give us all better
insight into why JewishGen is engaged in the projects we hold so
dear to our hearts. Knowledge of our history can indeed
bridge gaps towards better understanding and mutual respect...
and these qualities are indeed a precursor for PEACE! Please take
a few moments to read it, to feel it and to look beyond the words
to perhaps a new meaning and dimension to what we are all doing
together in one of the greatest grass roots effort ever!
>from all of us at JewishGen, we wish you and your families a very
happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!

forward re shtetlinks #latvia

Arlene Beare <arl@...>
 

From: cweinstein@jewishgen.org (Chuck Weinstein)
Well, the year 2000 is gone, but it has been quite a year Shtetlinks!
All of you who are reading this and who have contributed in one way or
another to ShtetLinks can take pride in our accomplishments this year.
The number of ShtetLinks sites hosted on JewishGen's servers has grown
from 126 in January, 2000 to 164 as of last evening. There are three
more sites awaiting final approval, which should be up shortly. We are
now receiving some 250,000 hits per month on the JewishGen hosted
sites. This represents a 50% increase >from April, when those statistics
first began being collected. Since January, 2000, we have more than
doubled the number of actual pages on our server and the size of this
project has grown >from 109 Mb to 745 Mb.
None of these things happen in a vacuum. Our dedicated group of site
checkers, led by webmaster John Berman, have worked hard, bringing all
of this to you. Over the past couple of months, all of our hosted sites
have been checked by our hard working Quality Assurance team, and those
of you with problems have been notified. We are currently working on a
project to migrate our linked pages on to JewishGen's servers. A survey
is now being conducted to move that project along.
All of this is done with the help of dedicated volunteers. None of us
is paid for this hard work. However, we all benefit >from your
JewishGen-erosity. If you have received any benefit >from this project
at all, or see the potential benefit, I ask you to strongly consider a
donation to further our work. All that computer space comes with a
price tag. You can make a credit card donation or send a check.
Instructions can be found at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/>.
Happy New Year to all of you and may 2001 bring you all you seek in your
family trees.

Cuba--Spanish help needed! #general

Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

Last week, I wrote a message regarding contacting a leader in the
Jewish community in Cuba. Several helpful people wrote with a
name and a telephone number. But now I have other problems:
First, I think my Spanish is not good enough for such a call.
(Counting to ten in Spainsh is a challenge for me!)

I decided to try calling anyway, but found (over the space of
several days) that the call wouldn't work. The operator informed
me (correctly?) that calls >from the U.S. to Cuba might be blocked.

Is there someone outside of the U.S. who is fluent in Spanish and
would be willing to make the call for me? I would be glad to pay
for the call or provide any help or phone calls that would be
helpful here in the U.S. or elsewhere.

Daniel Kazez

P.S. The call to Cuba is quite simple. It involves one
surname (ALHADEFF)--for two brothers who I know went to Cuba.

Read the file, "Jewish Given Names - Slide Presentation."
The section on Hebrew -> English Adaptations should be helpful
in this case, but the presentation as a whole gives a much
better understanding of Jewish naming practices.

Also in the InfoFiles is a "Bibliography on Jewish Given Names,"
which lists some helpful resources that may be available in your

Good background knowledge is one of the best gifts one can give

MODERATOR NOTE:
This was a tough one!
It could be considered off-topic.
-- on the other hand as some of us might have (yet unknown!?)
relatives in the Jewish Community there, it could also be
considered topical....
So I ask those you concur with the first opinion:
Please bear over with me.

Belarus SIG #Belarus Re: Mogilev and the Chernobyl Disaster #belarus

Adarelanab@...
 

The current issue of Jerusalem Report (dated Januray 1, 2001) has
an article entitled ILL WINDS on page 34, about the effects of the
Chernobyl nuclear disaster on Mogilev, Belarus, and particularly
on the small Jewish community left in Mogilev. It also mentions
Gomel where more than 1/3 of children aged 4 or younger at the
time of the blast are likely to develop thyroid cancer.
