I am writing in response to Diane Sophrin's posting of Thurs. Aug 15,
2013 because her family probably had a similar history to mine. First
of all, there are no records in existence >from Zagare before 1922.>>

With all due respect to J. Goldwater, she is sending out incorrect
information. The Litvak SIG Siauliai District Research Group web site
includes translated records for Zagare going back to 1795.

Re: "Old Jewish Cemetery" in Frankfurt a.M - SITE CITE - IAJGS Cemetery database #germany

Arline and Sidney Sachs
 

I haven't checked on-line resources, but the records of the [Frankfurt a.M.] rat-beil strasse
cemetery (old Jewish cemetery) are complete. Since I think the office
there is now closed I think the records are in the Chrisitian and/or new
Jewish cemetery right next door (about 1/2 block to the left when facing
the cemetery). These records will explain where to find the burial. For
the most part these are still quite legible. I believe the cemetery was
used until 1924. At one time I had posted a map of the cemetery on the [website of the
IAJGS] cemetery project, but I don't know if it is still there.

Donation of Slonim Yizkor Books #yizkorbooks

Ray Stone <rstone@...>
 

I would like to donate my complete set of Slonim Yizkor books (4
volumes) to a library or institute that can make good use of them.
The main requirement is that they have a collection of Yizkor books,
but not those of Slonim. Preferably, it should be somewhere in the US.

Please reply privately any suggestions.

Thank you.

Souvenir / family book for bar mitzvas #hungary

Ruben Weiser
 

I want to share with all of you the new family book I made for my second son
bar mitzvah and
gave it as a souvenir to the attendants. I think it can give new ideas to
others
that have the same idea on mind.

For many years I wanted to write a book about my family genealogy research
but who
in the family will be interested in dates and names like we (genealogist)
are?.
Some time ago I had the idea to write for my sons bar mitzvah a small book
with 13
stories with a nice teaching of 13 of his ancestors with an introduction to
each
story with information about that ancestor. And in each story i added a
picture of
the ancestor or the town where he or she lived and or the headstone picture
etc.
Most of the people liked the book and started to be somehow interested in
genealogy.

Anybody interested to see the book ,just send me an email and I will be
happy to
send it by email in pdf format. rubweiser@gmail.com
This is the index of the book:
introduction
1)Rab Abraham Aaron Teitelbaum of Kolbuszowa (le shem shamaim honor)
2)Bolisa Levy of Aleppo (sacrifice for your neighbors in need)
3)Eliahu Reich of Rzeszow (give what god has entrusted us with)
4)Biniamin Jonatan Schwartz of Piricse (if its isint me, who then)
5)Moshe Gelberman of Rohod (achnasat orchim)
6)Rab Naftali Tzvi Horowitz of Ropshitz (everything should be properly
balanced)
7)Rab Itzjak Meshulam Zalman Reinmann of Narol (And if it's not exactly what
we wanted)
8)Rabi Menachem Mendel Rubin of Lezko (what is the use of anger)
9)Nissim Juejati of Aleppo (everything is for the best)
10)Rab Shimshon Wertheimer of Wien (kidush ashem)
11)Leib Shamash of Eisenstadt (depending on gods will)
12)Rab Moshe Teitelbaum of Satoraljaujhely (waiting for the mashiach every
single day)
13)Simja Alegre kassin of Aleppo (le shem shamaim arguments)
14)Josef Weisz of Balassagyarmat (kidush ashem)
15)Haprenumerantn

Hope it helps others to write their family histories.

Dear Friends,

As many of you know, the IAJGS recognized the KehilaLinks project
for its "outstanding contribution to Jewish Genealogy" at the just
completed conference in Boston. We are incredibly pleased that the
project has been acknowledged, as we have considered it to be an
incredibly useful resource since its inception in 1996.

But we must also take a moment to formally acknowledge Susana
Leistner Bloch and Barbara Ellman, the leaders of the KehilaLinks
project.

It is safe to say that the KehilaLinks project would be
unrecognizable in its current form, without the countless hours of
hard work, planning, brainstorming, and simple devotion that Susana
and Barbara display on a constant basis.

As anyone who has worked with them knows, they are constantly
available to answer questions, and will do their best to help people
be successful in their Jewish genealogical research. For this reason,
we view this award not only as a "JewishGen award" but as a well
deserved honor for two of our most important volunteers, Susana and
Barbara.

Please join us in congratulating Susana and Barbara by leaving your
congratulatory comments on our facebook page by visiting:
http://tinyurl.com/ktrqsu8 .

Your comments will surely be appreciated.

Mazal Tov!

Avraham Groll, Director of Business Operations
