Yizkor Book Project, September 2015 #rabbinic

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

September 2015 found most of the Jewish world involved in the High Holydays
and Sukkot, however, this part of the Jewish world - the Yizkor Book Project
did manage to find the time between these holidays, to squeeze out our
normal number of new projects and additions.

Notable amongst the additions over the last month were the placement online
of the final English translations >from the Yiddish section of the "Przemysl
memorial book". Thank you Lukasz Biedka for your coordination of this book
over many years and managing to achieve this enviable milestone. Hoping it
won't be too long now before the whole of this project is completed.

A further noteworthy addition to the YB Project was the setting up of a
Miechow Translations Fund for the "Miechov Memorial Book". This fund and the
many others listed in our "Yizkor Book JewishGen-erosity" page enable those
wishing to be able to read translations of a Yizkor book for a particular
community, to financially support this goal. JewishGen uses these funds to
pay professional translators to carry out this important work and allows us
to place these translations online for the benefit of many. You'll see the
link at the end of this report and if you are able to support any of the
projects listed there, you will be definitely be doing your piece in
allowing this generation and those who will come after us, to learn about
the people and communities that were annihilated in the Holocaust. The
Yizkor books contain a realm of information about the people and the
lifestyles of these communities but so much of it is hidden away for those
unable to read the Yiddish and Hebrew pages that they were written in. The
English and other language translations we place online enable a much wider
audience to access to these formerly concealed treasures that these books
contain.

Amongst the new projects that were added last month, were books on Hoechst,
Germany and Krakow, Poland - both of which have considerable listings of
names that include relationship details, places of birth and death and so
on. Particular examples of the information that can be gleaned >from the
Yizkor books and there is so much more!

Finally, apart >from the professional translators, the bulk of the work
within our project is carried out by volunteers and we are currently on the
lookout for volunteer editors who are capable of proofreading prepared
translations but don't necessarily need to know Hebrew or Yiddish. If you
are able to assist in this field, or any other voluntary work for that
matter, I'd certainly be pleased to hear >from you.

And now for the changes and additions that were carried out in the Yizkor

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

September 2015 found most of the Jewish world involved in the High Holydays
and Sukkot, however, this part of the Jewish world - the Yizkor Book Project
did manage to find the time between these holidays, to squeeze out our
normal number of new projects and additions.

Notable amongst the additions over the last month were the placement online
of the final English translations >from the Yiddish section of the "Przemysl
memorial book". Thank you Lukasz Biedka for your coordination of this book
over many years and managing to achieve this enviable milestone. Hoping it
won't be too long now before the whole of this project is completed.

A further noteworthy addition to the YB Project was the setting up of a
Miechow Translations Fund for the "Miechov Memorial Book". This fund and the
many others listed in our "Yizkor Book JewishGen-erosity" page enable those
wishing to be able to read translations of a Yizkor book for a particular
community, to financially support this goal. JewishGen uses these funds to
pay professional translators to carry out this important work and allows us
to place these translations online for the benefit of many. You'll see the
link at the end of this report and if you are able to support any of the
projects listed there, you will be definitely be doing your piece in
allowing this generation and those who will come after us, to learn about
the people and communities that were annihilated in the Holocaust. The
Yizkor books contain a realm of information about the people and the
lifestyles of these communities but so much of it is hidden away for those
unable to read the Yiddish and Hebrew pages that they were written in. The
English and other language translations we place online enable a much wider
audience to access to these formerly concealed treasures that these books
contain.

Amongst the new projects that were added last month, were books on Hoechst,
Germany and Krakow, Poland - both of which have considerable listings of
names that include relationship details, places of birth and death and so
on. Particular examples of the information that can be gleaned >from the
Yizkor books and there is so much more!

Finally, apart >from the professional translators, the bulk of the work
within our project is carried out by volunteers and we are currently on the
lookout for volunteer editors who are capable of proofreading prepared
translations but don't necessarily need to know Hebrew or Yiddish. If you
are able to assist in this field, or any other voluntary work for that
matter, I'd certainly be pleased to hear >from you.

And now for the changes and additions that were carried out in the Yizkor
Book Project over September.

During this last month we have added in 4 new projects:

Latvia SIG #Latvia Yizkor Book Project, September 2015 #latvia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

September 2015 found most of the Jewish world involved in the High Holydays
and Sukkot, however, this part of the Jewish world - the Yizkor Book Project
did manage to find the time between these holidays, to squeeze out our
normal number of new projects and additions.

Notable amongst the additions over the last month were the placement online
of the final English translations >from the Yiddish section of the "Przemysl
memorial book". Thank you Lukasz Biedka for your coordination of this book
over many years and managing to achieve this enviable milestone. Hoping it
won't be too long now before the whole of this project is completed.

A further noteworthy addition to the YB Project was the setting up of a
Miechow Translations Fund for the "Miechov Memorial Book". This fund and the
many others listed in our "Yizkor Book JewishGen-erosity" page enable those
wishing to be able to read translations of a Yizkor book for a particular
community, to financially support this goal. JewishGen uses these funds to
pay professional translators to carry out this important work and allows us
to place these translations online for the benefit of many. You'll see the
link at the end of this report and if you are able to support any of the
projects listed there, you will be definitely be doing your piece in
allowing this generation and those who will come after us, to learn about
the people and communities that were annihilated in the Holocaust. The
Yizkor books contain a realm of information about the people and the
lifestyles of these communities but so much of it is hidden away for those
unable to read the Yiddish and Hebrew pages that they were written in. The
English and other language translations we place online enable a much wider
audience to access to these formerly concealed treasures that these books
contain.

Amongst the new projects that were added last month, were books on Hoechst,
Germany and Krakow, Poland - both of which have considerable listings of
names that include relationship details, places of birth and death and so
on. Particular examples of the information that can be gleaned >from the
Yizkor books and there is so much more!

Finally, apart >from the professional translators, the bulk of the work
within our project is carried out by volunteers and we are currently on the
lookout for volunteer editors who are capable of proofreading prepared
translations but don't necessarily need to know Hebrew or Yiddish. If you
are able to assist in this field, or any other voluntary work for that
matter, I'd certainly be pleased to hear >from you.

And now for the changes and additions that were carried out in the Yizkor
Book Project over September.

During this last month we have added in 4 new projects:

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

September 2015 found most of the Jewish world involved in the High Holydays
and Sukkot, however, this part of the Jewish world - the Yizkor Book Project
did manage to find the time between these holidays, to squeeze out our
normal number of new projects and additions.

Notable amongst the additions over the last month were the placement online
of the final English translations >from the Yiddish section of the "Przemysl
memorial book". Thank you Lukasz Biedka for your coordination of this book
over many years and managing to achieve this enviable milestone. Hoping it
won't be too long now before the whole of this project is completed.

A further noteworthy addition to the YB Project was the setting up of a
Miechow Translations Fund for the "Miechov Memorial Book". This fund and the
many others listed in our "Yizkor Book JewishGen-erosity" page enable those
wishing to be able to read translations of a Yizkor book for a particular
community, to financially support this goal. JewishGen uses these funds to
pay professional translators to carry out this important work and allows us
to place these translations online for the benefit of many. You'll see the
link at the end of this report and if you are able to support any of the
projects listed there, you will be definitely be doing your piece in
allowing this generation and those who will come after us, to learn about
the people and communities that were annihilated in the Holocaust. The
Yizkor books contain a realm of information about the people and the
lifestyles of these communities but so much of it is hidden away for those
unable to read the Yiddish and Hebrew pages that they were written in. The
English and other language translations we place online enable a much wider
audience to access to these formerly concealed treasures that these books
contain.

Amongst the new projects that were added last month, were books on Hoechst,
Germany and Krakow, Poland - both of which have considerable listings of
names that include relationship details, places of birth and death and so
on. Particular examples of the information that can be gleaned >from the
Yizkor books and there is so much more!

Finally, apart >from the professional translators, the bulk of the work
within our project is carried out by volunteers and we are currently on the
lookout for volunteer editors who are capable of proofreading prepared
translations but don't necessarily need to know Hebrew or Yiddish. If you
are able to assist in this field, or any other voluntary work for that

A Personal Tribute to the Indomitable Pamela Weisberger, z"l #galicia

Fishbein Associates, Inc.
 

A Personal Tribute to the Indomitable Pamela Weisberger, z"l

Rand H. Fishbein, Ph.D., Vice-Chair, JewishGen Board of Governors

The unexpected of the passing of Pamela Weisberger has hit the world of
Jewish genealogy with the force of a California earthquake. And while
Pamela may have lived in Los Angeles, this particular earthquake has
spanned the globe. For wherever you are, if you swim in the waters of
Jewish family history, then you surely have been touched by the energy,
the innovation and the brilliance of Pamela Weisberger. To so many, she
was a force of nature, a driven personality, whose vision has helped to
lift the field of Jewish genealogy to a new plateau.

You did not have to be a close friend of Pamela Weisberger to know of
the legend. The imprint of her good works were, and are, everywhere to
be found. She always was on the move. Getting her attention at a
genealogy conference often was like asking a humming bird to hold still
for a photograph in the middle of a field of flowers. She was on
everyone's contact list. Life for Pamela was never dull. There always was
another project to start, an ancestral town to visit, a presentation to
deliver or a new search tool to add to Gesher Galicia's award-winning
web site.

Viewed through her eyes, the world was an endless range of research
challenges, and she was determined to conquer each one of them.
Whether the task was turning the Gesher Galicia Special Interest Group
into a pacesetter among the SIGs, building L.A.'s Jewish Genealogy
Society into one of the premier societies in the world, or initiating the
extraordinary Cadastral Map Project, Pamela always was on the cutting
edge.

If Pamela were able to read the accolades written about her in the days
since her untimely passing, she would have blushed with pride. For
while she was both an indomitable spirit and never one to rest on her
laurels, she also appreciated that her work had meaning beyond our
time. She drew strength, I believe, >from the fact that so many people
benefited >from her research. Being a leader is rarely easy, but Pamela
made the task of organizing Jews (and Jewish genealogists can be a
finicky lot) seem effortless. She knew how to marshal talent, fund
projects, and conceive of new initiatives that would not only have
scholarly value, but would seize the public's imagination. Pamela did this
over and over again. It was, in every sense, a reflection of not only her
love for the craft, but most of all her love of the Jewish People.

The Jewish genealogical community is made up of many dedicated
individuals, driven and inspired to reclaim a piece of a distant past. The
work of document discovery, recovery and indexing is a righteous
endeavor, and those who undertake this often selfless task do so out of a
sense of personal devotion. This is Pamela's legacy. Much like a painting
heavily damaged by war and neglect, Pamela painstakingly brought
history back to life, returning color, texture and meaning to the lives of
the long departed.

In the world of Jewish family history Pamela was a rock star. Blessed with
an unusual talent for sleuthing, she also had a natural ability to
communicate her findings to an amateur audience with uncommon
enthusiasm and warmth. We will miss Pamela. Her inspiration touched us
all. Her good works, like her unquenchable spirit, will continue to burn
brightly in the hearts and minds of those who knew and admired her.
May she find eternal peace among the ancestors she rescued >from
obscurity. I have no doubt that beyond the mountaintops she surveyed,
they have welcomed her with open arms and with the same love she
bestowed on their memories.

With deepest sorrow,

Rand H. Fishbein, Ph.D.

Krakow, and Przemysl, Poland, and Busk, Kolomyya, Stryy, Uhniv and
Yavoriv, Ukraine -- all communities that were once in Galicia.]

Shalom,

September 2015 found most of the Jewish world involved in the High
Holydays and Sukkot, however, this part of the Jewish world - the Yizkor
Book Project did manage to find the time between these holidays, to
squeeze out our normal number of new projects and additions.

Notable amongst the additions over the last month were the placement
online of the final English translations >from the Yiddish section of the
"Przemysl memorial book". Thank you Lukasz Biedka for your coordination
of this book over many years and managing to achieve this enviable
milestone. Hoping it won't be too long now before the whole of this
project is completed.

A further noteworthy addition to the YB Project was the setting up of a
Miechow Translations Fund for the "Miechov Memorial Book". This fund
and the many others listed in our "Yizkor Book JewishGen-erosity" page
enable those wishing to be able to read translations of a Yizkor book for a
particular community, to financially support this goal. JewishGen uses
these funds to pay professional translators to carry out this important work
and allows us to place these translations online for the benefit of many.
You'll see the link at the end of this report and if you are able to support
any of the projects listed there, you will be definitely be doing your piece
in allowing this generation and those who will come after us, to learn
about the people and communities that were annihilated in the Holocaust.
The Yizkor books contain a realm of information about the people and the
lifestyles of these communities but so much of it is hidden away for those
unable to read the Yiddish and Hebrew pages that they were written in.
The English and other language translations we place online enable a
much wider audience to access to these formerly concealed treasures that
these books contain.

Amongst the new projects that were added last month, were books on
Hoechst, Germany, and Krakow, Poland - both of which have considerable
listings of names that include relationship details, places of birth and
death and so on. Particular examples of the information that can be
gleaned >from the Yizkor books and there is so much more!

Finally, apart >from the professional translators, the bulk of the work
within our project is carried out by volunteers and we are currently on the
lookout for volunteer editors who are capable of proofreading prepared
translations but don't necessarily need to know Hebrew or Yiddish. If you
are able to assist in this field, or any other voluntary work for that matter,
I'd certainly be pleased to hear >from you.

Gesher Galicia SIG #Galicia A Personal Tribute to the Indomitable Pamela Weisberger, z"l #galicia

Fishbein Associates, Inc.
 

A Personal Tribute to the Indomitable Pamela Weisberger, z"l

Rand H. Fishbein, Ph.D., Vice-Chair, JewishGen Board of Governors

The unexpected of the passing of Pamela Weisberger has hit the world of
Jewish genealogy with the force of a California earthquake. And while
Pamela may have lived in Los Angeles, this particular earthquake has
spanned the globe. For wherever you are, if you swim in the waters of
Jewish family history, then you surely have been touched by the energy,
the innovation and the brilliance of Pamela Weisberger. To so many, she
was a force of nature, a driven personality, whose vision has helped to
lift the field of Jewish genealogy to a new plateau.

You did not have to be a close friend of Pamela Weisberger to know of
the legend. The imprint of her good works were, and are, everywhere to
be found. She always was on the move. Getting her attention at a
genealogy conference often was like asking a humming bird to hold still
for a photograph in the middle of a field of flowers. She was on
everyone's contact list. Life for Pamela was never dull. There always was
another project to start, an ancestral town to visit, a presentation to
deliver or a new search tool to add to Gesher Galicia's award-winning
web site.

Viewed through her eyes, the world was an endless range of research
challenges, and she was determined to conquer each one of them.
Whether the task was turning the Gesher Galicia Special Interest Group
into a pacesetter among the SIGs, building L.A.'s Jewish Genealogy
Society into one of the premier societies in the world, or initiating the
extraordinary Cadastral Map Project, Pamela always was on the cutting
edge.

If Pamela were able to read the accolades written about her in the days
since her untimely passing, she would have blushed with pride. For
while she was both an indomitable spirit and never one to rest on her
laurels, she also appreciated that her work had meaning beyond our
time. She drew strength, I believe, >from the fact that so many people
benefited >from her research. Being a leader is rarely easy, but Pamela
made the task of organizing Jews (and Jewish genealogists can be a
finicky lot) seem effortless. She knew how to marshal talent, fund
projects, and conceive of new initiatives that would not only have
scholarly value, but would seize the public's imagination. Pamela did this
over and over again. It was, in every sense, a reflection of not only her
love for the craft, but most of all her love of the Jewish People.

The Jewish genealogical community is made up of many dedicated
individuals, driven and inspired to reclaim a piece of a distant past. The
work of document discovery, recovery and indexing is a righteous
endeavor, and those who undertake this often selfless task do so out of a
sense of personal devotion. This is Pamela's legacy. Much like a painting
heavily damaged by war and neglect, Pamela painstakingly brought
history back to life, returning color, texture and meaning to the lives of
the long departed.

In the world of Jewish family history Pamela was a rock star. Blessed with
an unusual talent for sleuthing, she also had a natural ability to
communicate her findings to an amateur audience with uncommon
enthusiasm and warmth. We will miss Pamela. Her inspiration touched us
all. Her good works, like her unquenchable spirit, will continue to burn
brightly in the hearts and minds of those who knew and admired her.
May she find eternal peace among the ancestors she rescued >from
obscurity. I have no doubt that beyond the mountaintops she surveyed,
they have welcomed her with open arms and with the same love she
bestowed on their memories.

With deepest sorrow,

Gesher Galicia SIG #Galicia Yizkor Book Project, September 2015 #galicia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

[MODERATOR NOTE: See especially the listings below of Biecz, Gorlice,
Krakow, and Przemysl, Poland, and Busk, Kolomyya, Stryy, Uhniv and
Yavoriv, Ukraine -- all communities that were once in Galicia.]

Shalom,

September 2015 found most of the Jewish world involved in the High
Holydays and Sukkot, however, this part of the Jewish world - the Yizkor
Book Project did manage to find the time between these holidays, to
squeeze out our normal number of new projects and additions.

Notable amongst the additions over the last month were the placement
online of the final English translations >from the Yiddish section of the
"Przemysl memorial book". Thank you Lukasz Biedka for your coordination
of this book over many years and managing to achieve this enviable
milestone. Hoping it won't be too long now before the whole of this
project is completed.

A further noteworthy addition to the YB Project was the setting up of a
Miechow Translations Fund for the "Miechov Memorial Book". This fund
and the many others listed in our "Yizkor Book JewishGen-erosity" page
enable those wishing to be able to read translations of a Yizkor book for a
particular community, to financially support this goal. JewishGen uses
these funds to pay professional translators to carry out this important work
and allows us to place these translations online for the benefit of many.
You'll see the link at the end of this report and if you are able to support
any of the projects listed there, you will be definitely be doing your piece
in allowing this generation and those who will come after us, to learn
about the people and communities that were annihilated in the Holocaust.
The Yizkor books contain a realm of information about the people and the
lifestyles of these communities but so much of it is hidden away for those
unable to read the Yiddish and Hebrew pages that they were written in.
The English and other language translations we place online enable a
much wider audience to access to these formerly concealed treasures that
these books contain.

Amongst the new projects that were added last month, were books on
Hoechst, Germany, and Krakow, Poland - both of which have considerable
listings of names that include relationship details, places of birth and
death and so on. Particular examples of the information that can be
gleaned >from the Yizkor books and there is so much more!

Finally, apart >from the professional translators, the bulk of the work
within our project is carried out by volunteers and we are currently on the
lookout for volunteer editors who are capable of proofreading prepared
translations but don't necessarily need to know Hebrew or Yiddish. If you
are able to assist in this field, or any other voluntary work for that matter,
I'd certainly be pleased to hear >from you.

And now for the changes and additions that were carried out in the Yizkor
Book Project over September.
