Yizkor Book Project, May 2010 #lithuania

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Happily the month of May saw a continued hubbub of activity in the
Yizkor Book project. So many out there are contributing to the
success of the project and at every opportunity I send out my thanks
to the coordinators, volunteers and translators for the incredible
work they are doing in keeping the flame of our lost families and
communities alive. If there is a Yizkor Book that has yet to appear
in our index and it is close to your heart, please contact me and I
will assist, as much as possible in helping you to see translations
of this book online.

searching for info on great grandfather Israel (Isadore) MOJSEZON and family #warsaw #poland

leahpi@...
 

Hi all,

My name is Leah and I've relatively new to the group.
I'm researching two branches of my family that I believe came >from near Warsaw
in the 1880s.

My great grandfather Israel (Isadore) MOJSEZON was born in 1882 in Poland.
I think he is >from or near Warsaw but have no proof. I'm trying to find
any records of where he was from.
He had two brothers that I know of, Nathan (Natan) and David.
Both brothers moved to the UK and changed the family name to Morrison.
Isadore immigrated to the US in 1910 with his wife Celia MILBERG
and their first two children.
They changed the family name to Benson for immigration reasons.

Celia MILBERG, my great grandmother came >from Wegrow,
Poland outside of Warsaw. Other family names married into the family
are SEPIURKA and BURSZTYN. If anyone is connected to any of these families,
please be in touch.

Any help greatly appreciated!

Shalom,

Happily the month of May saw a continued hubbub of activity in the
Yizkor Book project. So many out there are contributing to the
success of the project and at every opportunity I send out my thanks
to the coordinators, volunteers and translators for the incredible
work they are doing in keeping the flame of our lost families and
communities alive. If there is a Yizkor Book that has yet to appear
in our index and it is close to your heart, please contact me and I
will assist, as much as possible in helping you to see translations
of this book online.

Yizkor Book Project, May 2010 #galicia

Shalom,

Happily the month of May saw a continued hubbub of activity in
the Yizkor Book project. So many out there are contributing to the
success of the project and at every opportunity I send out my
thanks to the coordinators, volunteers and translators for the
incredible work they are doing in keeping the flame of our lost
families and communities alive. If there is a Yizkor Book that has
yet to appear in our index and it is close to your heart, please
contact me and I will assist, as much as possible in helping you to
see translations of this book online.

Church Records in Galicia Villages #galicia

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

Noam Silberberg writes:

"My great grandmother was born in 1883 in Jasienow Polny, a very
small village near Horodenka. There were probably a few Jewish
families in the village. The LDS have microfilms of the Greek
Catholic Church for that village. Is it possible that the church
records in such a small village (a population of only a few
hundreds) would include the village's Jewish families?"

It can't hurt to look through these church records, but it is
extremely doubtful that you would find any Jewish events among
them. In fact, to date, I know of no one who has ever found Jewish
metrical events recorded in church records. The only exception
would be marriages or births in which a Jew had converted to
Catholicism or another non-Jewish denomination. In that case the
details of the conversion of the Jewish person and the names of
their children (who also might have converted) would be listed.

An example of this is a document called "Judische Familien In
Galizien" (Jewish Families in Galicia), >from researcher Manfred
Daum a specialist in "Galizien German Descendants" -- a group
devoted to family history research of the German descendants >from
the Austrian province of Galicia.
(http://www.galiziengermandescendants.org/)

This document is a compilation of Jewish men, women and entire
families, either born in or residing in Galicia, who converted to
Christianity: Greek or Roman Catholic, Lutheran,
Evangelical/Evangelical Reformed. In some cases these conversions
were a results of "mixed marriages" but in others, entire Jewish
families converted. There are many interrelated families. Mr.
Daum's sources were primarily church records >from which he
extracted this information, using parish registers, christening
documents, church marriage and death records, and some
personal family notes. The dates of these events run >from the late
1700s until 1941, and include a few people who were murdered in
the concentration camps. Several years ago Mr. Daum was
generous enough to share this document for the benefit of Jewish
Galician researchers.

But...for births, deaths and marriages involving strictly Jewish
events, those were recorded by Jewish authorities. Rumors have
abounded about Jewish events being recorded among church
records, and inquiries have been made about this possibility with
officials in the Lviv archive, but as stated above, to date no
examples of these have ever been found. On the other hand, it is
true that in (Russian) Polish records -- not Galician Polish records
-- there were Jewish events recorded in Catholic church civil
records >from 1808-1825.

Shalom,

Happily the month of May saw a continued hubbub of activity in the
Yizkor Book project. So many out there are contributing to the
success of the project and at every opportunity I send out my thanks
to the coordinators, volunteers and translators for the incredible
work they are doing in keeping the flame of our lost families and
communities alive. If there is a Yizkor Book that has yet to appear
in our index and it is close to your heart, please contact me and I
will assist, as much as possible in helping you to see translations
of this book online.

During this last month we also added two new Translation Fund Projects:
Divenishok (Dieveniskes), Lithuania and Koidonov (Dzyarzhynsk, Belarus).
These were begun in order to engage professional translators who will help
facilitate dreams of seeing the whole translation of these books online.

If you are able to assist financially to these particular books them or any
of those appearing at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
your donation would be very much appreciated.

Please remember that all this month's additions and updates have been
flagged at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html to make it
easy to find them.

Wishing you all the best,
Lance Ackerfeld
Yizkor Book Project Manager
