I wish to correct the notice posted by the moderator. The list that is fo=
und on
the IGs - Israel Genealogy Society site is of requests people have submit=
ted to
find submitters of testimonies to Yad Vashem >from Israel.
The idea behind it was, that maybe someone else might succeed in helping =
the
people find those submitters we have not been successful in finding. Our
success rate has been 25-30 %.
In the 50s Israel was growing by leaps and bounds, and many people have m=
oved
since then. In addition many of the POTs filled out in the 50s, were fill=
ed out
by people in their 40s & 50s. That would mean, if they are alive today, t=
hey
would about 100 years old.

Viski, Latvia #general

Bruce Dumes <brucedumes@...>
 

I'm curious if anyone has any information about Viski (or Vishki), in
the Latgate district of Latvia, which is where my family emigrated >from
between 1903 and 1912. I've already made contact with the Latvian SIG
in JewishGen, and have PDF copies of their quarterly journal that
contained an article about Viski >from a few years back.

I'm also curious of anyone has used or can recommend the services of
Latvian researcher Aleksander Feigmanis. His website,
http://www.balticgen.com/, leads me to believe that he is a very
experienced researcher, though he is very slow to answer email.

Best Regards,
Bruce Dumes

MODERTAOT NOTE: Any comments about the researcher should be sent privately.

Tosfos Yom Tov #general

Susan Edel
 

I am looking for a book called "Sefer Yosher Divrei Emes" a chassidic
mussar sefr, written by Rav Feivel Zavaritch Heller. The first edition
(written about 100 years ago) includes a family tree tracing the lineage
back to the Tosfos Yom Tov. If anyone has this book or knows where I can
see a copy, please contact me.

Many thanks,

Susan EDEL, Petach Tikva, Israel

Success - Seeking PoT submitters Rut PRAG or Rut FEFERBERG in Israel #general

NATALIE LAMB
 

I want to publicly express my appreciation of two extremely kind and
generous JewishGenners in Israel who have helped me.

Within minutes of my posting this query yesterday, I heard >from one
wonderful man who located a phone number for the submitter's home and has
now made contact with her son, who is going to get in touch with me.

I have also heard >from another very helpful person, who has translated into
English the addresses on the PoT's and confirmed that the two submitters
were indeed one and the same.

Radom Books of Residents Project - UPDATE #poland

Carol Isaak
 

I am pleased to share the latest news about the indexing of the
Jewish entries in the Books of Residents for the city of Radom.

The indexing of these volumes is part of the Jewish Records
Indexing - Poland Archives (JRI-Poland) project.

The file now contains 21,000 entries - that's 4,000 more since the
previous announcement one month ago. The final count will be
between 35,000 - 40,000. Each entry includes Name, Surname,
Father Name, Mother Name, Mother Maiden Name, Date and
Place of Birth and Occupation. In some cases, the Date of Death
or other notes are included.

There are now 4,154 distinct surnames or variations of surnames
in the database. That's 500 more since last month. A list of all
surnames appearing 70 or more times is included below.
A surname frequency list is available upon request.

There are now 790 towns (in addition to Radom) listed as birth
location. That's 70 more since last month. A list of all towns
appearing 25 or more times is included below. A town
frequency list is available upon request.

The cost of indexing the Radom Books of Residents is expected
to be approximately $8500 to $9000. Researchers making a
Qualifying Contribution of no less than $150 will be eligible to
obtain a copy of the Excel file with all 35,000 - 40,000 entries.

A file with the currently available 21,000+ entries will be available
immediately to Qualifying Contributors. Previously Qualified

Could you please help me with my search on sugar cane Land Lords in
Pernambuco, Brazil?

Last name (usually together): Affonso de Mello

The former President of Brazil, Fernando Affonso Collor de Mello, is
descendent >from those Land Lords.

Did Manuel Affonso de Mello, Collor de Mello's grandfather, a Land Lord in
the 1800s or late 1700s go to Brazil >from Holland or Portugal?

I've heard Manuel's wife was Dutch.

Any luck for me?

Thank you so much.
