Yizkor Book Project, May 2017 #belarus

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

As is my custom, at the beginning of each month I endeavor to let you know
some of the goings-on and highlights relating to the Yizkor Book Project
over the previous month.

For a start, once again, I am pleased to inform you that two additional
translation projects were completed during this past month and the projects
I am referring to are:

- Czestochowa, Poland (Resistance and Destruction in Ghetto Czestochowa)
which Gloria Berkenstat Freund has single-handedly translated >from beginning
to end - quite a remarkable accomplishment. It should be noted here that
this is the second book which she has completely translated and kindly
presented to the Yizkor Book Project. The complete translation of yet
another Yizkor book about this community is on the horizon and Gloria does
deserve our utmost appreciation for these translations and all the work she
does for the YB Project.
- Jonava, Lithuania (Jonava On the Banks of the Vylia; In memory of the
destroyed Jewish community of Jonava) has been deftly coordinated over many
years by Susan Goldsmith and it is purely through her dedication to this
project, that the full translation of this book has become a reality. We
thank Susan sincerely for seeing this considerable project through to its
successful completion.

from time to time, we add in transliterations of the necrologies appearing
in the various the Yizkor books, as these important lists do provide us with
unique information on the people >from the particular communities who were
killed in the Holocaust. These necrologies were compiled by the survivors of
these communities and whilst these lists don't always include all those
killed, they are considerable in length and include important facts and at
the same time, do remind us the unfathomable, enormity of the Holocaust.
The necrologies added last month, for instance, were for the communities of
Kamen Kashirskiy and Kuty in the Ukraine and include several thousand names.

Over the years, we have transliterated a great deal of the necrologies and
our intention is to continue transliterating these lists till all are
available online. In parallel, Max Heffler and his team have been suiting
the lists that have been prepared so that they can be uploaded to the Yizkor
Book necrology database, providing ready access to the names and relevant
data >from the books existing in the Yizkor Book Project.

Finally, I would like to note that we recently received the first
translation into Polish of an article >from the Nowy Dwor Mazowiecki Yizkor
book and more will be added >from time to time. The YB Project is about
making the material >from the Yizkor Books as widely exposed as possible and
translating the text into Polish allows ready access to readers of this
language to material concerning the thriving communities that existed in
Poland before the Holocaust, material which is quite often unavailable
anywhere else.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried out
in the Yizkor Book Project in May.

We have added in 10 new entries:

Question about occupation "teacher" #belarus

Jonathan D. Sher, OD, FAAO <jdsherod@...>
 

I've been receiving information >from my researcher in Vitebsk about the
Swerdlov's
from the Polotsk region listed in the 1863 homeowners census. Lots of
tailors, merchants, carpenters, etc.,
but also some listed as "teacher". The family lore is that there are
Rabbis on that side of the family and
I am wondering if teacher would be translated to mean Rabbi. I could
upload the page in Russian
if that would help.
Any opinions >from the experts on this?
Thanks,
Jonathan D. Sher

'The Danube Exodus' is a 60 minutes long film by Hungarian film maker
Peter Forgacs. It tells the story pf several hundred Slovak Jewish
refugees sailing down the Danube, >from Bratislava to the Black Sea on
a couple of river boats, July 1st to August 31, 1939 . The film is
partly based on 8mm films taken by the captain of 'Queen Elizabeth',
one of those boats.
My grandmother and three of her children (an aunt and two uncles of
mine) sailed on the 'Czar Dushan', the second of those boats. My aunt,
21 years old at the time, described the whole trip in a personal
diary, a copy of which I have (in Hungarian, translated by me into
Hebrew).
I would like very much to view this film, but could not find a usable
copy. Can anybody help ?

Yizkor Book Project, May 2017 #unitedkingdom

bounce-3332542-785714@...
 

Shalom,

As is my custom, at the beginning of each month I endeavor to let you know
some of the goings-on and highlights relating to the Yizkor Book Project
over the previous month.

For a start, once again, I am pleased to inform you that two additional
translation projects were completed during this past month and the projects
I am referring to are:

- Czestochowa, Poland (Resistance and Destruction in Ghetto Czestochowa)
which Gloria Berkenstat Freund has single-handedly translated >from beginning
to end - quite a remarkable accomplishment. It should be noted here that
this is the second book which she has completely translated and kindly
presented to the Yizkor Book Project. The complete translation of yet
another Yizkor book about this community is on the horizon and Gloria does
deserve our utmost appreciation for these translations and all the work she
does for the YB Project.
- Jonava, Lithuania (Jonava On the Banks of the Vylia; In memory of the
destroyed Jewish community of Jonava) has been deftly coordinated over many
years by Susan Goldsmith and it is purely through her dedication to this
project, that the full translation of this book has become a reality. We
thank Susan sincerely for seeing this considerable project through to its
successful completion.

from time to time, we add in transliterations of the necrologies appearing
in the various the Yizkor books, as these important lists do provide us with
unique information on the people >from the particular communities who were
killed in the Holocaust. These necrologies were compiled by the survivors of
these communities and whilst these lists don't always include all those
killed, they are considerable in length and include important facts and at
the same time, do remind us the unfathomable, enormity of the Holocaust.
The necrologies added last month, for instance, were for the communities of
Kamen Kashirskiy and Kuty in the Ukraine and include several thousand names.

Over the years, we have transliterated a great deal of the necrologies and
our intention is to continue transliterating these lists till all are
available online. In parallel, Max Heffler and his team have been suiting
the lists that have been prepared so that they can be uploaded to the Yizkor
Book necrology database, providing ready access to the names and relevant
data >from the books existing in the Yizkor Book Project.

Finally, I would like to note that we recently received the first
translation into Polish of an article >from the Nowy Dwor Mazowiecki Yizkor
book and more will be added >from time to time. The YB Project is about
making the material >from the Yizkor Books as widely exposed as possible and
translating the text into Polish allows ready access to readers of this

some of the goings-on and highlights relating to the Yizkor Book Project
over the previous month.

For a start, once again, I am pleased to inform you that two additional
translation projects were completed during this past month and the projects
I am referring to are:

- Czestochowa, Poland (Resistance and Destruction in Ghetto Czestochowa)
which Gloria Berkenstat Freund has single-handedly translated >from beginning
to end - quite a remarkable accomplishment. It should be noted here that
this is the second book which she has completely translated and kindly
presented to the Yizkor Book Project. The complete translation of yet
another Yizkor book about this community is on the horizon and Gloria does
deserve our utmost appreciation for these translations and all the work she
does for the YB Project.
- Jonava, Lithuania (Jonava On the Banks of the Vylia; In memory of the
destroyed Jewish community of Jonava) has been deftly coordinated over many
years by Susan Goldsmith and it is purely through her dedication to this
project, that the full translation of this book has become a reality. We
thank Susan sincerely for seeing this considerable project through to its
successful completion.

from time to time, we add in transliterations of the necrologies appearing
in the various the Yizkor books, as these important lists do provide us with
unique information on the people >from the particular communities who were
killed in the Holocaust. These necrologies were compiled by the survivors of
these communities and whilst these lists don't always include all those
killed, they are considerable in length and include important facts and at
the same time, do remind us the unfathomable, enormity of the Holocaust.
The necrologies added last month, for instance, were for the communities of
Kamen Kashirskiy and Kuty in the Ukraine and include several thousand names.

Over the years, we have transliterated a great deal of the necrologies and
our intention is to continue transliterating these lists till all are
available online. In parallel, Max Heffler and his team have been suiting
the lists that have been prepared so that they can be uploaded to the Yizkor
Book necrology database, providing ready access to the names and relevant
data >from the books existing in the Yizkor Book Project.

Finally, I would like to note that we recently received the first
translation into Polish of an article >from the Nowy Dwor Mazowiecki Yizkor
book and more will be added >from time to time. The YB Project is about
making the material >from the Yizkor Books as widely exposed as possible and
translating the text into Polish allows ready access to readers of this
language to material concerning the thriving communities that existed in
Poland before the Holocaust, material which is quite often unavailable
anywhere else.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried out
in the Yizkor Book Project in May.

We have added in 10 new entries:

Reclaim The Records wins the first-ever digital copy of the New York State Death Index, 1880-1956! #general

Asparagirl
 

Reclaim The Records is a not-for-profit activist group of
genealogists, historians, researchers, and journalists. We work to
identify important genealogical record sets that are not online
anywhere and not broadly available to the public. We then use state
Freedom of Information laws to force government agencies and archives
to hand over copies of these records to the public, which we then
digitize and put online for free use. Other organizations and
companies are then free to make transcriptions and searchable
databases of our images and data, if they wish.

After seventeen months of work, we have now forced the New York State
Department of Health to concede that the New York State death index
data is, and should be, available to the public under open records
laws. This data was previously only available on scratchy old
microfiche copies at a small number of libraries in upstate New York,
plus the Manhattan branch of NARA. Not a single website, whether
for-profit or non-profit, had copies, not even FamilySearch microfilms.

We secured the first ever public and digital copies of this important
state death index, which the Department of Health has scanned for us
directly >from the original vault copies. They are high-resolution
greyscale images, with the entire set comprising about 3/4 of a
terabyte of data on a portable hard drive. (That's a lot of dead people.)

We're uploading all these files, year by year, to the Internet Archive
(archive.org). Other websites, as well as individual researchers, are
welcome to use, download, and even host the files on their own
websites, and create transcription projects if they wish. The files
are entirely in the public domain, free to use without any restrictions.

This death index covers 1880-1956, which is seventy-seven years! Here
are some things to keep in mind:

- 1880 and 1881 have very limited data, as the state law requiring
reporting deaths to the state didn't have great compliance at first.

- 1943 is, unfortunately, extremely hard to read, and we don't know if
any better copy exists. If there is, we'll go after it with a new FOIL
request and scan it.

- New York City deaths are, for the most part, *NOT* included in this
statewide death index. That's because New York City and New York State
are completely different vital records jurisdictions. However, some
deaths that were in neighborhoods that are part of modern-day New York
City -- such as Flushing (Queens) or Canarsie (Brooklyn) -- do show up
in the pre-1897/1898 statewide death index! That's because they
weren't incorporated as part of the city yet at the time they were recorded.

- Three major cities are not included in this statewide death index
until 1914 or 1915: Yonkers, Buffalo, and Albany. Reclaim The Records
will be making three new and separate FOIL requests to those city
clerks for the first-ever public copies of their 1880-1914 death
indices, in order to complete the missing data.

- Finally, there is some disagreement over whether people who died at
state-run mental institutions or developmental disability institutions
were correctly included in the statewide death index. If you know of
someone who died in one of those facilities, could you please check to
see if they were in fact recorded in this index, and report back?

The full details, and links to the individual years' images, are in
our latest free newsletter, which you can read online here:

Yizkor Book Project, May 2017 #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

As is my custom, at the beginning of each month I endeavor to let you know
some of the goings-on and highlights relating to the Yizkor Book Project
over the previous month.

For a start, once again, I am pleased to inform you that two additional
translation projects were completed during this past month and the projects
I am referring to are:

- Czestochowa, Poland (Resistance and Destruction in Ghetto Czestochowa)
which Gloria Berkenstat Freund has single-handedly translated >from beginning
to end - quite a remarkable accomplishment. It should be noted here that
this is the second book which she has completely translated and kindly
presented to the Yizkor Book Project. The complete translation of yet
another Yizkor book about this community is on the horizon and Gloria does
deserve our utmost appreciation for these translations and all the work she
does for the YB Project.
- Jonava, Lithuania (Jonava On the Banks of the Vylia; In memory of the
destroyed Jewish community of Jonava) has been deftly coordinated over many
years by Susan Goldsmith and it is purely through her dedication to this
project, that the full translation of this book has become a reality. We
thank Susan sincerely for seeing this considerable project through to its
successful completion.

from time to time, we add in transliterations of the necrologies appearing
in the various the Yizkor books, as these important lists do provide us with
unique information on the people >from the particular communities who were
killed in the Holocaust. These necrologies were compiled by the survivors of
these communities and whilst these lists don't always include all those
killed, they are considerable in length and include important facts and at
the same time, do remind us the unfathomable, enormity of the Holocaust.
The necrologies added last month, for instance, were for the communities of
Kamen Kashirskiy and Kuty in the Ukraine and include several thousand names.

Over the years, we have transliterated a great deal of the necrologies and
our intention is to continue transliterating these lists till all are
available online. In parallel, Max Heffler and his team have been suiting
the lists that have been prepared so that they can be uploaded to the Yizkor
Book necrology database, providing ready access to the names and relevant
data >from the books existing in the Yizkor Book Project.

Finally, I would like to note that we recently received the first
translation into Polish of an article >from the Nowy Dwor Mazowiecki Yizkor
book and more will be added >from time to time. The YB Project is about
making the material >from the Yizkor Books as widely exposed as possible and
translating the text into Polish allows ready access to readers of this
language to material concerning the thriving communities that existed in
Poland before the Holocaust, material which is quite often unavailable
anywhere else.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried out
in the Yizkor Book Project in May.

We have added in 10 new entries:
