Roberta Berman
 

My husband has done the FTDNA Y-DNA test at the 111 marker level. His
closest match is a genetic distance of 4.
Is there any reason to do or not to do the Big Y test? What would we learn?
Your guidance will be much appreciated.

Yizkor Book Project, July 2017 #belarus

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I believe that in the realm of completing projects, the Yizkor Book
Project is definitely "on a roll". Again this month, I'm pleased to
inform you that two additional projects are now totally online. They
are:

- Bender, Moldova (Bendery Community Yizkor Book) is a project which
exemplifies how dedication to a goal, yields results. This project was
coordinated over the years by Gloria (Schwartzman) Green and most ably
and voluntarily translated by Ala Gamulka, who apart >from translating
this entire book has prepared numerous translations for the YB Project.
We thank these good people for this notable and wonderful achievement.

- Brody, Ukraine (An Eternal Light: Brody in Memoriam) which was
coordinated by Moshe Kutten, who took on the lofty goal of singly-
handling the translation a large proportion of this book in order to
complete it. He was kindly assisted in the field of editing by
Yocheved Klausner and Rafi Manory, and to them all, we owe our debt
of gratitude.

Another event that took place in July was the publishing of yet
another book by the Yizkor Books in Print Project - "Brichah (Hebrew
for Escape or Flight)" . The book was edited by William Leibner and
he has utilized his research and own personal experience, to present
this book about the struggle of the Holocaust survivors to reach
Palestine before the establishment of the State of Israel, after the
war. We do thank William for sharing with us the many books he has
edited over the years and wish him many years of fruitful activity.

In the realm of new projects, I would also like to note the following:

- Galicia (Jewish Genocide in Galicia) This is not the first entire
book that has been generously donated to the YB Project by Dr. Robin
O'Neil, a former British police major crimes investigator, who used
his special knowledge and experience to investigate Nazi war crimes.
His distinct insight into these tragic events can now be read freely
online and we do thank Dr. O'Neil for his multiple contributions to
the YB Project .

- Kherson, Ukraine (Jewish Farmers in Russia Fields) - This is a
particularly unique book which presents a chapter of life in the
Jewish agricultural settlements in the Kherson region during the
troubled Tsarist period. The settlements were eventually destroyed by
the Nazis but the survivors of them continued their utilized their
knowhow in their participation in farming settlements in Israel. The
insuppressible, Moshe Kutten, has taken on the translation of this
book and we thank him for this welcome initiative and addition.

In regards an existing project, I am both pleased and grateful to Rabbi
Shalom Bronstein for this completion of the extremely informative list
of Jewish partisans that was extracted >from the "Biographical
Dictionary of Jewish Resistance". Those linking into this project will
certainly be amazed by the wealth of personal details available and we
do thank Rabbi Bronstein for the time and effort required to prepare
such an intricate list.

Finally, I would like to note an important collaboration which has
been established between the Holocaust Survivors and Victims Resource
Center in the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and the Yizkor
Book Project. The center has generously offered to index books
published by our Yizkor books in Print Project and has carried out the
initial indexing of names of the first book of this kind - "Blood
Stained Feathers". Please note this book's index and all future indexes
will be available at:

Hello fellow Brest-Litovsk researchers
A while ago I came across a register of people's names, their addresses and
occupations in Brest-Litovsk, which I believe was part of a census prior to
1938 (maybe 1937?). I thought I still had access to that, but the document
and the website has vanished >from my computer. If anyone can help me
re-locate this information I would be most grateful, as I imagine anyone
else on this forum would be too.

Finally, I would like to note an important collaboration which has
been established between the Holocaust Survivors and Victims Resource

Re: The Surname COHEN #lithuania

All I can say on this point is my great grandfather Julius Cohen was
actually Yehuda Abramson, he changed his name in Lithuania, yet
never shows up there with that name.

I have come to a complete dead-end, and I hope someone may be able to help
me. I have been searching for several years for my maternal great-great-
grandfather, Israel Cohen. There is one record of him in the US, along
with his children (Morris and Hyman), listed on the US 1920 census.
His eldest, and my name-sake, Sarah Rachael, was likely already out of
the house at that time. The address listed in the census is the same
as that on an envelope that my family still has, so I am absolutely
certain that this is him.

The census states that he is >from Kovna, but I can't find him anywhere
in JewishGen or on the Litvaksig site. I realize that his name was not
Cohen in the old country and have tried every variation of Kagen, etc..
Still, no luck. I now believe that his previous surname didn't resemble
Cohen at all. I've searched the spread sheets for an Israel with any
last name, birth records for his children with his name linked,
marriage record for him and Chaya Pizer. Any hints you may have or
direction for me would be appreciated.

Thank you!

All I can say on this point is my great grandfather Julius Cohen was
actually Yehuda Abramson, he changed his name in Lithuania, yet
never shows up there with that name.

X-Message-Number: 1

I have come to a complete dead-end, and I hope someone may be able to help
me. I have been searching for several years for my maternal great-great-
grandfather, Israel Cohen. There is one record of him in the US, along
with his children (Morris and Hyman), listed on the US 1920 census.
His eldest, and my name-sake, Sarah Rachael, was likely already out of
the house at that time. The address listed in the census is the same
as that on an envelope that my family still has, so I am absolutely
certain that this is him.

The census states that he is >from Kovna, but I can't find him anywhere
in JewishGen or on the Litvaksig site. I realize that his name was not
Cohen in the old country and have tried every variation of Kagen, etc..
Still, no luck. I now believe that his previous surname didn't resemble
Cohen at all. I've searched the spread sheets for an Israel with any
last name, birth records for his children with his name linked,
marriage record for him and Chaya Pizer. Any hints you may have or
direction for me would be appreciated.

Thank you!

Shalom,

I believe that in the realm of completing projects, the Yizkor Book
Project is definitely "on a roll". Again this month, I'm pleased to
inform you that two additional projects are now totally online. They
are:

- Bender, Moldova (Bendery Community Yizkor Book) is a project which
exemplifies how dedication to a goal, yields results. This project was
coordinated over the years by Gloria (Schwartzman) Green and most ably
and voluntarily translated by Ala Gamulka, who apart >from translating
this entire book has prepared numerous translations for the YB Project.
We thank these good people for this notable and wonderful achievement.

- Brody, Ukraine (An Eternal Light: Brody in Memoriam) which was
coordinated by Moshe Kutten, who took on the lofty goal of singly-
handling the translation a large proportion of this book in order to
complete it. He was kindly assisted in the field of editing by
Yocheved Klausner and Rafi Manory, and to them all, we owe our debt
of gratitude.

Another event that took place in July was the publishing of yet
another book by the Yizkor Books in Print Project - "Brichah (Hebrew
for Escape or Flight)" . The book was edited by William Leibner and
he has utilized his research and own personal experience, to present
this book about the struggle of the Holocaust survivors to reach
Palestine before the establishment of the State of Israel, after the
war. We do thank William for sharing with us the many books he has
edited over the years and wish him many years of fruitful activity.

In the realm of new projects, I would also like to note the following:

- Galicia (Jewish Genocide in Galicia) This is not the first entire
book that has been generously donated to the YB Project by Dr. Robin
O'Neil, a former British police major crimes investigator, who used
his special knowledge and experience to investigate Nazi war crimes.
His distinct insight into these tragic events can now be read freely
online and we do thank Dr. O'Neil for his multiple contributions to
the YB Project .

- Kherson, Ukraine (Jewish Farmers in Russia Fields) - This is a
particularly unique book which presents a chapter of life in the
Jewish agricultural settlements in the Kherson region during the
troubled Tsarist period. The settlements were eventually destroyed by
the Nazis but the survivors of them continued their utilized their
knowhow in their participation in farming settlements in Israel. The
insuppressible, Moshe Kutten, has taken on the translation of this
book and we thank him for this welcome initiative and addition.

In regards an existing project, I am both pleased and grateful to Rabbi
Shalom Bronstein for this completion of the extremely informative list
of Jewish partisans that was extracted >from the "Biographical
Dictionary of Jewish Resistance". Those linking into this project will
certainly be amazed by the wealth of personal details available and we
do thank Rabbi Bronstein for the time and effort required to prepare
such an intricate list.

Finally, I would like to note an important collaboration which has
been established between the Holocaust Survivors and Victims Resource
Center in the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and the Yizkor
Book Project. The center has generously offered to index books
published by our Yizkor books in Print Project and has carried out the
initial indexing of names of the first book of this kind - "Blood
Stained Feathers". Please note this book's index and all future indexes
will be available at:
