Hebrew OCR program #general

Paul Silverstone
 

When I was in Israel last I visited the Haganah Archives and copied
several hundred pages into JPG copies. My plan was to convert the JPGs
into text files in order to translate them digitally.
However I have so far been unable to find a program which will do this.
The copied pages are almost all typewritten Hebrew. There are OCR
programs that translate English JPG into text. Can anyone suggest a
similar program for Hebrew?

Which archive holds the records of Romanian National Archive - Baia Mareb branch #subcarpathia

elran dvir <elran.dvir@...>
 

Hi all,

As I wrote here in a previous post, I am looking for records of the
town Dubove (https://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/community.php?.
usbgn=-1038279), now in Ukraine, of the years 1870-1910. Hopefully,
the records haven't been destroyed during the WWII.
I found a few of the records related to my family >from the years 1874
and 1878 in jewishGen. The source of the records as indicated in
JewishGen is "Romanian National Archive - Baia Mareb branch".

I heard that nowadays Ukraine hold these records? Is it true? Is it
true regarding the records of Dubove?
If not, and the records are in the Romanian Archive, does anyone know
their email address? I sent them an email message to one of the
address I had found in their website, but with no response so far.

Thank you.

Moderator’s note: These records are indeed held in Romania, not
Ukraine. The Maramaros Project run by H-SIG helped to index these,
so you may want to contact them.


Yizkor Book Project, July 2018 #subcarpathia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Last month, the Yizkor Book Project, saw important additions to many
of our ongoing projects, some of which have been on a "low flame" for
quite some time. For myself, this is a very encouraging sign and am
hopeful that this trend will continue in months to come.

In what has become a regular part of my monthly reports, I am pleased,
once again, to let you know that a further Yizkor Book has been
completely translated. The book this time, is the Tovste, Ukraine book
- the "Memorial book of Tluste" which has been deftly coordinated by
Douglas Hykle and who, with the assistance a number of skilled
volunteer and professional translators, succeeded in achieving this
lofty goal. Many thanks to Doug and all those involved in this effort.

The timely completion of this translation comes just before the IAJGS
conference in Warsaw and I do wish all the participants a very
memorable, and enlightening time there. As always, we have a Yizkor
Book Birds of a Feather meeting which will be lead this year by Max
Heffler who has been very active in our project for numerous years. I
join with Max in inviting you to this meeting where you can learn more
about what we're doing and meet those already active in the YB
project.

Another very timely addition to the Yizkor Book Project, to be exact
to the Yizkor Books in Print Project, is the publishing of the "We
Remember Lest the World Forget" book, containing unique and moving
personal testimonies of Minsk Ghetto survivors. Thanks, as always, to
Joel Alpert and his dedicated and amazing team of volunteers for all
the work they do in this project. Joel has also informed me that the
translation into English of the Brody, Ukraine Yizkor book will be
made available to the public in the very near future, which is also
great news. For details of the 70 odd books that are already
available, please see the link to this project at the end of this
report.

The Yizkor Book Project is only able to achieve what it does through
the tireless assistance of a great number of volunteers who have a
special place in their hearts, like myself, for this endeavor.
Although we have many volunteers, we are still "greedy" for more to
help advance the myriad of projects we have running. For instance, we
are always on the lookout for editing help, especially people with
knowledge of Hebrew and/or Yiddish.

We are also currently looking for a volunteer who can transcribe
Cyrillic into English so that we can make a list of martyrs from
Vitebsk, Belarus available in the YB project. If the above fields of
expertise suit you to a tee and you are able to dedicate some time to
our project, I would be pleased to hear >from you.

As one of the aims of the Yizkor Book Project is to make the material
they contain freely available to a wide as possible audience, I was
pleased to receive the complete translation into Polish of the Sierpc,
Poland Yizkor Book which was kindly presented to us by Avraham Nanes.
This translation, together with the many others we have online in
languages other than English, is linked in the "Other Languages"
section in our Translations Index page - the link to which, is
provided at the end of this report.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried

Early American SIG #USA Yizkor Book Project, July 2018 #usa

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Last month, the Yizkor Book Project, saw important additions to many
of our ongoing projects, some of which have been on a "low flame" for
quite some time. For myself, this is a very encouraging sign and am
hopeful that this trend will continue in months to come.

In what has become a regular part of my monthly reports, I am pleased,
once again, to let you know that a further Yizkor Book has been
completely translated. The book this time, is the Tovste, Ukraine book
- the "Memorial book of Tluste" which has been deftly coordinated by
Douglas Hykle and who, with the assistance a number of skilled
volunteer and professional translators, succeeded in achieving this
lofty goal. Many thanks to Doug and all those involved in this effort.

The timely completion of this translation comes just before the IAJGS
conference in Warsaw and I do wish all the participants a very
memorable, and enlightening time there. As always, we have a Yizkor
Book Birds of a Feather meeting which will be lead this year by Max
Heffler who has been very active in our project for numerous years. I
join with Max in inviting you to this meeting where you can learn more
about what we're doing and meet those already active in the YB
project.

Another very timely addition to the Yizkor Book Project, to be exact
to the Yizkor Books in Print Project, is the publishing of the "We
Remember Lest the World Forget" book, containing unique and moving
personal testimonies of Minsk Ghetto survivors. Thanks, as always, to
Joel Alpert and his dedicated and amazing team of volunteers for all
the work they do in this project. Joel has also informed me that the
translation into English of the Brody, Ukraine Yizkor book will be
made available to the public in the very near future, which is also
great news. For details of the 70 odd books that are already
available, please see the link to this project at the end of this
report.

The Yizkor Book Project is only able to achieve what it does through
the tireless assistance of a great number of volunteers who have a
special place in their hearts, like myself, for this endeavor.
Although we have many volunteers, we are still "greedy" for more to
help advance the myriad of projects we have running. For instance, we
are always on the lookout for editing help, especially people with
knowledge of Hebrew and/or Yiddish.

We are also currently looking for a volunteer who can transcribe
Cyrillic into English so that we can make a list of martyrs from
Vitebsk, Belarus available in the YB project. If the above fields of
expertise suit you to a tee and you are able to dedicate some time to
our project, I would be pleased to hear >from you.

As one of the aims of the Yizkor Book Project is to make the material
they contain freely available to a wide as possible audience, I was
pleased to receive the complete translation into Polish of the Sierpc,
Poland Yizkor Book which was kindly presented to us by Avraham Nanes.
This translation, together with the many others we have online in
languages other than English, is linked in the "Other Languages"
section in our Translations Index page - the link to which, is
provided at the end of this report.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried
out in the Yizkor Book Project in July.

We have added in one new book:

FRANK in San Antonio, Texas #usa

Neil Kominsky
 

Any early Texas mayvins out there? I am trying to find information on
L. FRANK (never anything but first initial in records I have found),
who was the proprietor of L. Frank Saddlery and an ancestor of the
prominent Straus family. I am looking for a possible connection to
A.B.(Abraham) FRANK, who established a dry good business in San
Antonio in 1879 and later went into cattle ranching as well.
A.B. Frank was born in Altenschoenbach, Lower Franconia in 1847, and
remained in business in San Antonio until his death in 1907 in New York.

Thanks in advance for any help.
