JewishGen.org and The Museum of the Jewish People Announce A Strategic Partnership #bessarabia

Groll, Avraham
 

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL / NEW YORK, NY -- JewishGen.org and The Museum of the
Jewish People at Beit Hatfutsot announced a strategic partnership today,
bringing together two of the Jewish world's most iconic names for
innovation in advancing online genealogy and identity exploration.

The partnership envisions that the family tree collections held by
both parties, accounting for nearly 20,000 trees in total, will be
completely accessible to visitors of both JewishGen.org and The Museum
of the Jewish People. Beginning in the late Fall 2018, researchers will
be provided with unprecedented access to vital Jewish family history
information that is available in no other facility. This new search
platform will dramatically increase the likelihood that researchers will
find information they are seeking.

Avraham Groll, Director of JewishGen.org, stated, "JewishGen is committed
to doing everything we can to provide the highest quality of access to
records, information, and tools that researchers can utilize in their
quest to connect with relatives, discover their unique family history,
and understand what it means to be part of the Jewish people. Our new
partnership with The Museum of the Jewish People will help us achieve
this goal, by eliminating the need to spend time or financial resources
searching multiple facilities. For JewishGen, connecting with the Museum
of the Jewish People comes during a stage of significant growth >from both
an archival and technological perspective, and as we set ambitious
strategic priorities for the years to come, I believe that this new
relationship will herald continued opportunities for our organizations to
collaborate on behalf of the entirety of the Jewish people."

"Too often we see organizations cajoling for space and prominence, when
they should be aligning. The treasures that JewishGen and the Museum of
the Jewish People have each built up over the decades are invaluable and
irreplaceable, and it’s a privilege to be able to re-make that
connection, through technology and partnership building," said Dan Tadmor,
CEO of The Museum of the Jewish People at Beit Hatfutsot.

For the Museum, connecting its Douglas E. Goldman Jewish Genealogy Center
with JewishGen comes during the final development stages of its new "Open
Databases Project," due for launch later this year. The system will
integrate each of the Museum’s five separate databases together with
outside archives >from partners such as JewishGen, allowing users to
curate their own personalized library of Jewish life, drawing on
genealogy, community, photography, music and film.

What's more, through an open API and an enhanced data upload function,
both developers and personal users can further enrich the archives at any
point, by uploading their own institutional, personal and family content,
creating a shared, online repository for centuries of Jewish life and
culture.

Significant amount of Ukraine records freely available online #ukraine

Previous posts have mentioned the work of Alex Krakovsky in Ukraine
making available to the public archival records. I don=E2=80=99t believe,
though, that a previous post on these message boards has drawn
attention to the fact that Mr. Krakovsky has already been putting
online all of the records he has scanned, freely accessible and in
very orderly fashion.

The overwhelming majority of records that have been placed online so
far are >from Kiev oblast, but there are many others >from various
additional Ukrainian archives as well (except those of former
Galicia). For instance, I was able to view scores of original records
(metrical books, revision lists, etc) >from various locations,
including my family=E2=80=99s ancestral town of Pyatigory, in a manner that
previously cost hundreds of dollars to have someone else research on
the ground in Ukraine.

It appears that more records continue to be added as they are scanned.

Subj: ViewMate translation request - POLISH

I've posted a vital record in Polish for which I need a translation. It is on ViewMate at the following address ...
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM66329

This is a newly released card >from the Stutthof Concentration Camp. I'm interested in knowing what the
following words mean. They are: Stand; Wehnort; durch and in KL. Also, I would appreciate a translation
of what is written after Wehnort, Religion, and durch. Knowing a small bit of German I was able to figure
out some of the more obvious. Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Thank you very much.
Channah

Yeshayahu Drucker devoted a good part of his life to rescuing Jewish
children >from non-Jewish homes. Many parents had given their children
to Polish neighbors for safekeeping during the war. Unfortunately most
of the parents did not survive the Shoah. At the end of the war, there
was no one to claim the children and they remained with the "adopted"
Polish families. Following his discharge >from the Polish army,
Yeshayahu Drucker devoted himself to rescuing Jewish children from
these homes and restoring them to their Jewish families or placing
them in Jewish orphanages. He was a one-man operation but saved
hundreds of Jewish children. This is the amazing story of one man's
mission to save Jewish children and return them to their people.
