Hello,

Could someone visiting the graves of their relatives at Mount
Hebron Cemetery in N.Y. take photos of mine and email them to
me, please?

I’d be most grateful.

This is the information I have recently found:

Galicia discussion list:

<<My grandfather's application for citizenship in 1914 lists his
place of birth as Holyn, Austria. Does anyone know the current
name of that town and where it is located?>>

According to Where Once We Walked, Revised Edition, Holyn is now
Golyn' and is located in Ukraine, 93km SSE of Lviv. This area was in
the former Austrian Province of Galicia before WWI destroyed the
Austro-Hungarian Empire and would therefore have been correctly
described in 1914 as being in Austria.

Thank you for all of the wonderful responses to my query. The
consensus is that Holyn, Austria is now Golyn, Ukraine and is near
Kalusz and Ivano-Frankivsk in western Ukraine.
You guys/gals are terrific.

Yizkor Book Project, June 2011 #latvia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

As we head out into the long hot summer or the long cold winter, for those
on the other side of the planet, I have to report that June was yet another
"hyperactive" month for the Yizkor Book Project. Happily, quite a large
number of new books and entries were added and notably, a new Translation
project has been added this month for Dej, Romania (Des, Hungary) and we are
looking for financial support of this project in order to allow those of you
with roots there, to read about the people and thriving culture that existed
before the Holocaust. If you feel able to assist in helping to finance this
or any of our currently running translation projects at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
, your help would be much appreciated. The importance of these funds is
clearly illustrated in this month's updates, half of which are projects in
our Translations Funds.

June also saw the addition of a large number of necrologies which not only
immortalize the names of our loved ones but also can provide their family
relationships, professions, dates of birth and more or these people. As
such, these lists are also an invaluable genealogical resource and to assist
in research, the names >from the necrologies are periodically added to the
searchable Yizkor Book Necrology Database at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/ These days, this important but
time-taking work of adding to the database is carried out by Max Heffler,
who also carries out a myriad of other tasks for JewishGen and elsewhere. I
would truly like to spread the heavy load which these days falls heavily on
Max's shoulders alone and am eager to hear >from any of you who have some
time to help in preparing the lists in Excel which are then added to the
database.

Seek Abel GIDES b. Seta (Shat), Lithuania liberated fr Dachau Kaufering #general

Susan Goldsmith
 

Dear All,

I am trying to locate family of Abel GIDES, (hopefully Abel himself),
b. 1920 Seta (Shat), Lithuania, who was liberated >from Dachau Kaufering in
late April 1945. He had lived in Seta and then in the Kovno Ghetto until
transferred to Dachau.

If you know of any Lithuanian-born GIDES family (or similar spelling), I
would also be appreciative. I do not know where Abel might have settled
after the war and would appreciate look ups for GIDES, GITTES, GADIE, GADYE
in Israel. Thank you very much.

Best Regards,

Susan Goldsmith
