Yizkor Book Report for August 2008 #latinamerica

Joyce Field
 

In August 2008 the Yizkor Book Project added one new book, two new
entries, and updates to nine books. All additions have been flagged
at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html to make it easy
for researchers to find them. At this site translations are also
listed in four categories: regions, communities, miscellaneous, and
other languages.

New book:

-Lublin, Poland: necrology submitted by Yad Vashem

New entries:

-Kleczew, Poland: Pinkas HaKehillot, Polin, vol. I
-Spisskie Podhradie, Slovakia: Pinkas HaKehillot, Slovakia

Updates:

-Bedzin, Poland
-Belchatow, Poland
-Czestochowa, Poland,
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Czestochowa2/Czestochowa2.html
-Dabrowa Gornicza, Poland
-Dusetos, Lithuania
-Kalarash, Moldova
-Kaluszyn, Poland
-Radzyn Podlaskie, Poland
-Sanok, Poland

Also remember to check the Yizkor Book Database at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/database.html, a master bibliographic
database of most published yizkor books and other books written about
particular towns or areas. Another valuable resource is the necrology
index at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/, an index of the
names of persons in the necrologies--the lists of Holocaust
martyrs--published in our translated yizkor books. The necrologies
are also searchable at the Holocaust Database at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Holocaust/.

Please contact me if you are interested in starting a new yizkor book
translation project. Check the Yizkor Book Database to see if a book
has been written about your ancestral town and also check the
listings of articles in the Pinkas HaKehillot to see if there is an
article about your town. These books are listed under "Regions."

Shana tova to all the JewishGen family.

Chateau de Fremont internment camp in France #general

Manuela Wyler <m.wyler@...>
 

Between May and August 1940, 254 foreigner Jews were interned in
France in the Allier department in Vallon en Sully; some of them were
arrested after escaping >from Belgium.

We have updated our database with their names and data. I would
like to hear about anyone who was there or whose relatives were in
that small camp.
The internment database can be searched at :
http://www.jewishtraces.org/search or by using Steven Morse page at
http://www.stevemorse.org

Please contact me privately for further inquiries.

Bukachevtsy- GG Cadastral Map Project #galicia

Linda Cantor <lincan@...>
 

Exciting news if your family came >from Bukachevtsy (Bukaczowce),
Ukraine!! There's a good chance that we can get more information
about where our families lived and worked in Bukachevtsy!!! I'm
hoping that at least a few of you will be interested in the
Cadastral Map project as we need to contribute at least $250 to the
effort by Sept. 10 in order for this to get off the ground.

Please take a look at
http://www.jewishgen.org/galicia/CadastralMapProject.html for
details. Cadastral maps provide information about who lived in town
and the property they owned and should prove quite interesting.

I have been told by someone who is interested in Czerniow, rather
near Bukachevtsy, that maps exist for Bukachevtsy. We won't know
until we raise the funds to pay a researcher to do the primary work
of looking for the map. Seems to me it's worthwhile.

So please consider making this contribution via Gesher Galicia.
Directions are at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/galicia/CadastralMapProject.html>
Scroll down toward the bottom of the page. Note that you can make
the contribution via PayPal or by check.

Please let me know privately if you are able to take part in this
project. We don't have much time to get all this together and I want
to be sure that it gets off the ground.

information [reliability of birth, marriage and death records] #galicia

Ervin Spinner <espinner@...>
 

Questions for the expert genealogists:

1) In looking at the JewishGen data as well as some LDL films, I
noticed that some of the indicated marriage dates are clearly wrong
based on other information I possess. Specifically, I looked at
Horodenka as well as Czernowitz. What is the general reason for
that? Should I assume that some of the indicated birth records are
also wrong?

2) If a person is listed in the JewishGen spreadsheets as having
died in a particular year, is this date reliable? Does it also mean
that he is actually buried in the town in which he is listed?

I am researching the following.

Polish Translation Requested #general

Greg Tuckman
 

Hello group,

ViewMate is still down, so I am asking for some personal help.

I have a delayed birth registration >from Lublin, Poland. Normally one would
see three births recorded on one page. This particular birth is two solid
pages! It appears it might be a court situation trying to discover the
brides true age??

I would appreciate some help in discovering the actual birth date of the
individual but also the gist of what was going on way back in 1844.
I can send the document to you in four pages.

Thank you so much for your help. You can respond privately,
unless you think this is of interest to the group.

Genpals Cemetery Project (UK) update #general

Gaby Laws <gabylaws@...>
 

Hi
We have made the following additions to our cemetery project website
www.genpals.com

London - Bancroft Road - Old Maiden Lane Synagogue Cemetery. This
cemetery is in a sad state of decay. Many of the remaining stones are
severely damaged and frequently offer scant clues as to whom they
commemorate.

Yorkshire - Bradford Scholemoor Cemetery & Hartlepool Jewish Cemetery

Kent - Halfway (Queensborough). There are two sets of photos. The
most recent taken this summer. The previous set was photographed in
January 2007 eagle-eyed researchers will notice a (plastic) flower has
been placed in front of each grave. Since the date was a few days
after Holocaust Memorial Day, it was thought this might be the reason
but extensive local research has failed to find the mystery visitor
or the significance of the flowers.

Hope Street Old Burial Ground

Wales: (these are still incomplete but it's a start)
Glamorgan: Merthyr Tydfil Cefn Coed, Swansea, Gwent: Brynmawr,
Newport. Additional pictures for these and other Welsh Cemeteries will
be very welcome.

Devon - Plymouth Hoe Old Burial Ground & Exeter (more to be added in
the next few days). Additional pictures for these cemeteries will be
very welcome

Hampshire - Aldershot. This cemetery has now been fully recorded*. The
photographs were taken not long before the cemetery was shockingly
desecrated and many of the stones were irreparably damaged (*This does
not include stones that do not come within our remit - ie: they are
post 1927 - and which certainly featured heavily among those that were
vandalised. Transcriptions of these stones may be provided to
descendants on request.

Our thanks to all those who have contributed photographs and to all
those who have taken the time to add their comments via our on-line
contact facility. We value your support and welcome your input.

MODERATOR NOTE: The JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry (JOWBR) at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/cemetery/> has as its aim the indexing
of Jewish gravestones everywhere. As this is a cooperative project, data
included in JOWBR may also be retained and used by the contributor. Gaby
