[Myslowitz, Prussian Silesia, now Myslowice, Poland, mentioned in] Yizkor Book Project, September 2018 #germany

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Without a doubt, September was definitely a record month for the Yizkor
Book Project. An important element behind this notable accomplishment,
is the people who prepare the web pages - Max Heffler and Jason
Hallgarten, who after their normal work day and other life activities
regularly manage to find some spare time to prepare and update a
multitude of pages each month. For their persistence and dedication, we
are truly indebted.

And if we are talking about dedication, I wish to note Lukasz Biedka's
coordination of the Przemysl Yizkor book over many years, which in this
past month bore fruit - the complete translation of this Yizkor book. I
send out my grateful thanks to Lukasz, who with the close collaboration
with professional translator, Jerrold Landau, together brought about
this lofty achievement.

At last count, we had 152 books that have been completely translated
within the Yizkor Book Project or include English books that were
generously donated to our project. Each month, the number in this list
continues to grow and I am certain that coming months will see more and
more of these projects completed. As always, if you are able to
financially support any of our ongoing translation projects to help us
realize our goals, bringing benefit to many, please see the link to our
JewishGen-erosity page at the end of this report.

Last month, we also saw the addition of another book published through
the auspices of the Yizkor Books in Print Project. The book I am
referring to is the "Memorial Book of Radzivilov" which is a translation
of the Yizkor book for the community of Radyvyliv, Ukraine. The talented
people in this project continue to devote time, after their usual life
commitments, to thoughtfully and carefully prepare the hard copy
versions of books that we have completely translated into English and we
do owe them our grateful thanks. For information about the books
available for purchase, please see the link at the end of this report.

And now for the additions and updates are what we've carried out during
September:

We have added in one new book:

- Dubiecko, Poland (Dubyetsko)

- Otaci, Moldova (Memorial for Ataky: A Memorial Book for a Jewish
Community in Bessarabia - Supplements)
www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Otaci1/Otaci1.html

We have added in 3 new entries:

***- Myslowice, Poland (Sosnowiec and the Surrounding Region in Zaglembie)

***Myslowice, Poland, was part of Prussian Silesia as Myslowitz until
1922 and hence part of GerSIG's area of interest. (Thanks Rodney Eisfelder.)

Offering NYC Cemetery visits - Zion, Hebron, Montefiore, Lebanon, more #general

A. E. Jordan
 

I am going to be doing a new round of cemetery visits and I am happy to take
photos for anyone who knows a particular grave they want to have a picture.

I am definitely going to be doing Mt. Lebanon in Queens as well as Mount Hebron,
Mount Zion and Old Monetifore. All in Queens, New York. Since I will be in
what is known as the cemetery belt I will consider others as well such as Mt.
Carmel and Mt. Judah.

What I ask is that you have the details of the grave. Some of the cemeteries
have online databases where you can locate the specific grave. Otherwise I
need and name and dates specifically enough to be able to identify the correct
grave.

Please don't send a request for Moshe Cohen who died sometime in the 1930s and
I think he might be in Hebron or .... You can understand there are going to
be a lot of people who fit a vague description like that.

I am happy to photograph family plots and often if when I get to the grave I
find more people with the same family name I photograph them just in case.
Easier t take al lthe photos then having to make two trips.

I do appreciate a few dollars in return to help off set the expense of doing
this and making it possible for me to keep helping everyone.

Email me off list and I am happy to discuss what I can do. Feel free to ask
about any of the NYC area cemeteries including Long Island. I am happy to do
just about any of them when there are enough requests ... I don't however do
Bayside in Queens because of the safety and security issues. Some day I hope
that changes.

Offering NYC Municipal Archives Lookups #general

A. E. Jordan
 

If anyone needs assistance at the NYC Municipal Archives I am getting ready to
do my next research trip. It is likely to be Tuesday this week or the
following week depending on a few issues on my schedule.

What I can do is retrieve or read and transcribe vital records that you have
identified. The Archives holds:

NYC births through 1909
NYC Deaths through 1948
NYC marriages both Health Department and City Clerk through 1949

They also hold some other records such as the 1890 Police Census (no index
though)

Generally what I do is retrieve the files you have identified but can not
access on your own. I can buy copies $11 each or take notes and email you.
Also if you have a "maybe" file I can look at it and compare it against your
information, example to see if the parent's names are what you expected. so
save buying something only to find it it is the wrong person.

I do appreciate a few dollars to help offset my expenses when I do this plus
any printing costs

Email me off list if you are interested and we can discuss what I can do.
Always happy to offer advice or comments about NYC area research and the
tricks of the trade.
