Steve ZEDECK ---thank you! #general

Dear Fellow Researchers,

When I first joined Jewishgen and Jewish Records Indexing - Poland back
in 1997, Steve ZEDECK was there. When I became the Belchatow Shtetl CO-
OP Coordinator with JRI-Poland, Steve was available to guide me through
producing charts and tables for the internet and quietly fixed all the
flaws before uploading my material. When I was sending almost daily
updates for the Polish Business Directory volunteer table and the JRI-
Poland Inventories, he uploaded the information within hours, sometimes
minutes, of my requests. He answered all technical questions easily and
generously and no question was too basic for him to give it a respectful
answer.

The databases he created were unique and advanced all our personal
genealogical discoveries. He unassuminglly shared his technical expertise
and time, a great deal of time, with so many of us. His behind the
scenes creations were the foundations of so much of our work and will
continue to be the cornerstone for what we do in the future.

Gratitude and all good things to Steve on his retirement as webmaster of
JRI-Poland. Good wishes for all his future endeavors. He will be missed,
but hope he stops by now and then and spends some future time in the
Jewish genealogical world.

Warm regards and gratitude,

Re: Levite status on tombstones #general

Schelly Dardashti <dardasht@...>
 

What appears on a gravestone is what the family has commissioned. The
style of the letters, a personal message, whether it is in Hebrew,
English, Russian, Farsi etc, the design elements (such as pitcher for
Levi) or even a picture of the deceased -- all of this is what the family
has decided to order >from the stonemason and has decided to pay for. It is
a personal, family decision. Any visitor to a Jewish cemetery will find a
remarkable assortment of memorials and items included and how they are
presented, the actual stone, its color, its size.

However, there is a trend in "modern" park-like cemeteries in the US (and
perhaps in other countries) to only allow smallish ground-level plaques,
all of a similar design/shape, etc. which will contribute to the park
grounds atmosphere. In this case, certain limitations/restrictions might
apply.

In Israel, varieties in memorial stones also abound. On a recent visit I
saw the stones for a mother and father (both recently deceased but in
different plots in the cemetery), both ordered by their children, who
are native speakers of both Hebrew and English. While the shape, color and
size of the stones themselves were nearly identical, the inscriptions were
very different, complete with different English spellings of the same
names. Whether this was a mistake by the stonemason or in the order given,
I don't know.

...the Levite (or Cohen) status on many of the gravestones in their
cemeteries (does this happen in Conservative ones too?) is not included.

"Thank you, Steve Zedeck" #poland

RobinnM@...
 

Dear Fellow Poland researchers:

Today is the first day of life on the Jewish Records Indexing - Poland
project without Steve ZEDECK as the webmaster. I wrote Steve a personal
thank you yesterday, but wanted to share with my friends how inspirational
and great it has been to have Steve as a "hand-holding" webmaster all these
years.

Not only was creating the database his original idea, but his accessibility
and responsiveness to all JRI-Poland users has helped build the strong family
of researchers that we now are. People helping people is what this whole
project is about, and Steve should take great pride not only in the great
website, but in the great friendships that we've woven through the project.

With Steve in the designer's seat, we've shared great achievements. I think
my Lublin submissions put us over the 100,000 record mark a good couple of
years ago, and today the JRI-Poland database can boast over 1.5 million
records! It couldn't have been done without a great website and friendly,
responsive communications between volunteers.

So, my hat goes off to Steve for all his help and guidance. He's asked for a
well-deserved rest, but I know that he expects us to continue the work!

So, hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work we go ... but we'll miss him!

According to information gathered Eva's mother's maiden name was Sarah
