yizkor book for Ratno, Ukr #general

Joyce Field <jfield@...>
 

The JewishGen Yizkor Book Project has been contacted by a
representative of the Ratno, Urkraine landsmanschaft in Israel who is
interested in getting the yizkor book translated and put online on
the JewishGen Yizkor Book Project site.

The book is: Ratno, Ukraine: Ratne; sipura shel kehila yehudit
she-hushmeda (Ratne; the story of a Jewish community that was
destroyed), Editor: Nahman Tamir, Tel Aviv, Ratno Society in Israel,
1983 (H, 331 pages).

Anyone interested in translating this book or setting up a
translation project, please contact me. The landsmanschaft has no
one to do the translation and, of course, will give JewishGen
permission to put the translation on our web site. I hope that
someone with roots in this town will volunteer to coordinate the
project. Our procedures can be found at
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/donation/.

Is Anyone Familiar with Drohobycz Holocaust Book? #general

Carole Feinberg <feincgs@...>
 

Dear Friends,

Have any Genners used Samuel Rothenberg's 1984 book, "List o zagladzie
Zydow w Drohobyczu", which translates to, "List of the Jews (who were)
victims of the Holocaust in Drohobycz"?

So far, this book has been located in the British Library (in London?)
and in the Toronto University library.

Thanks in advance for anticipated help.

Dear Genners:

Here is the entire text of a recent message:

I attempted to access the listed address. It was rejected. Can anyone
help?
Thank you.
Because this message is typical of several that appeared recently, I want
to repeat an earlier plea: Will posters please, please identify their
subject matter explicitly in the body of their message -- instead of saying
vague things like "the above surname" or "the listed address" -- which
forces the reader into the time-consuming chore of going back up to check
the header. The sender here assumed that everyone actually read headers
before reading the message itself. On a list like Jewishgen, I doubt if
that is true for most of us, because it is such a time-waster --
especially if you have to do it for 100 messages or more per day.

For fast readers, it is an enormous time-saver to avoid wading through
headers to locate subject lines. It is far quicker to zip through the
message itself, deleting those of no personal interest and saving only
those one needs. So please, could everyone be sure to state the surname
or other subject matter explicitly in the message and not merely in the
header. Thank you.

Re: First name "Brit" #general

IsraelP <zach4v6@...>
 

Is there such a name "Brit"? I know the word, as most of us do, meaning
"covenant". But is there such a name?
I know someone who called their sixth child (girl) by that name. It is
certainly not a standard. In their case it is not based on an ancestor's
name.

My only reason for citing that story, was just to point out that
although so many years had gone by since our last contact, 95 years after
the fact, my family branch was still carrying on many of the same customs

(my documentation did that for us), it is nonetheless a fun discovery.

Thanks to all of you who have shared the commonality of this "tradition"
with me, & who told me of similar terms.

Re: Missing Pieces of the Puzzle #ukraine

I would be extremely cautious basing family connections
on the names of cold remidies used in the families. My
family used those as well, as I am sure have many
others. Generally speaking, it's akin to saying that
all families that use tylenol while calling it aspirin
are related. Sorry to disillusion you, but it's just
another one of jewish names for something that I am sure
was very commonly used.

Dear Florence,
I was very inspired by your message to keep trying to make those connections with my family. I certainly remember my mother (>from Vakhnovke/Vinnitza) making us that old cold remedy (we pronounced it "gorggle-morggle"), and it really worked.
I have a branch of my father's family who emigrated to Toronto, Canada. So far they have not been too forthcoming with dates, etc. Is there any way to research in the Canadian Archives other than writing directly to them? ...
