Bukacowce, Bukazowera and Buhazoweza #galicia

Karol Swanson
 

Hi

Can someone help me please? I have found several references on
family documents to towns with different spellings: Bukacowce,
Bukazowera and Buhazoweza. Are these the same place but with
wrong spelling? Can anyone offer me any clue as to what town(s)
I should be focussing on?

Many thanks,

GeoCities Closing October 29th - Let JewishGen Host Old GeoCities Pages #usa

Groll, Avraham
 

Yahoo's GeoCities will be closing on October 29th this year. There are
hundreds, if not thousands, of websites hosted on GeoCities that contain
crucially important information for people researching their Jewish
ancestry.

JewishGen is eager to assume full responsibility - at no cost - for any
GeoCities site that contains information valuable to people researching
their Jewish roots. This information should not be lost, and JewishGen
will ensure that the data and information will remain accessible for
generations to come.

If you have such a GeoCities website, (or know of others that exist),
please email us at info@JewishGen.org and one of our representatives
will contact you quickly to make the easy transfer.

Please forward this message to anyone whom you feel can help in this
effort.

Best regards,

Yizkor Book Project, August 2009 #usa

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Yes, another very productive month, and this is due to a continued effort by
a very diligent team of volunteers and professional translators who work
behind the scenes. I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank
the volunteers who have been carefully and patiently transliterating
necrologies and also the editors who have carefully gone over these same
necrologies and texts to ensure that the material placed in the Yizkor Book
site is as precise as we can possibly make it.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Max Heffler, who is a
very integral part of the Yizkor Book html team (and many other teams!), and
also takes care of the huge task of regularly placing the online Yizkor Book
necrologies into the Yizkor Book necrology database which serves as a very
helpful tool for finding where information is located on families killed in
the Holocaust .

Statistics -- During this month we carried out 15 updates for:

-Bielsk-Podlaski, Poland
-Chelm, Poland
-Czyzew, Poland
-Dabrowa Gornicza, Poland
-Dusetos, Lithuania
-Jewish Music in Poland between the World Wars
-Kaluszyn, Poland
-Katowice, Poland
-Kolo, Poland
-Kutno, Poland
-Lithuania (lita.html)
-Miedzyrzec Podlaski, Poland
-Strzemieszyce Wielkie, Poland
-Svencionys, Lithuania
-Tighina, Moldova (Bendery)

We also added in 8 new books:

-Baranów Sandomierski, Poland
-Byten, Belarus
-Chorzele, Poland
-Dobromil, Ukraine
-Golub-Dobrzy&#324;, Poland
-Komárno, Slovakia
-Lakhva, Belarus
-Sierpc, Poland

With the addition of these new books I am happy to announce that we have
now more than 500 books online (506, at last count!) together with almost
900 entries, that is to say pages for Jewish communities that don't
necessarily have their own Yizkor book. The bulk of these entries come from
the Encyclopedias of Jewish Communities (Pinkasei Hakehillot) which have
historical information all the Jewish communities, no matter how large or
how small. And regarding these entries -- I would like to suggest to those
of you whose family came >from communities that don't appear in any Yizkor
book to consider preparing a translation of the entry >from the respective
encyclopedia, or engaging a professional translator to do so.

If you require assistance regarding this or about any facet of the Yizkor
Book Project, I would be glad to hear >from you. Please remember that all
this month's additions and updates have been flagged at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html to make it easy to find
them.

All the best,

Cemetery desecration and JOWBR #usa

Nolan Altman
 

Saul Issroff's recent South Africa SIG post regarding the desecration at the
Muizenberg Cemetery, South Africa, reminds us of the importance of indexing and
photographing headstones >from Jewish cemeteries around the world. This will
create a permanent virtual record of the memorials to our ancestors.

With currently over 1.2 million burial records, JewishGen's international
burial registry, JOWBR - JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial Registry--
encourages individuals, local JGS groups, synagogue groups, and other
community or genealogical associations to index and photograph headstones in
their areas and add these records to the JOWBR database. We are happy to
add acknowledgements to volunteers and donors or add links to websites in
our Cemetery Description field when requested.

Alsatian relative Lost track after 1870 USA arrival #usa

ROBERT TEITELBAUM <bobtbaum@...>
 

I am most interested in family experiences and stories. My primary research
goals now are to find out:
1. To find out what happened to my great grandfather's sister, Sara,
who came to New York with him then "disappears" >from the records.
2. If there are any surviving BLOCHs directly related to my great
grandfather's family surviving in Europe.

My JGFF Researcher ID number is 8341 The family names and ancestral towns
that I have entered in the JGFF (JewishGenFamily Finder)
are my four grandparental families (listed below) and their spouses and
direct desendants.

Presently I am pursuing a missing decade of my Alsatian, BLOCH,family
in New York City. Does anyone have an idea where Alsatian Jews who came
to New York City around 1870 might have gathered or gone to religious
services (what synagogue)or been a part of any kind of group?

Would there have been a neighborhood or living accomodation where
people spoke the familiar languages of Alsace and had a similar history?

In addition to the BLOCH family of Valff, Bas Rhin, Alsace to New York
am researching: TEITELBAUM: Tarnopol, Galicia to Western Pennsylvania
1871 then to Brooklyn, New York 1890; FELLEMAN: Marken, Amsterdam, Holland
to Philadelphia 1832, then to New York and Brooklyn, NY circa 1841
GOLDSCHMIDT (GOLDSMITH): Sprendlingen, Hessen, Germany to Brooklyn, NY 1855

INTRO - researching BARUCH and GERBUR families from Prussian Poland #germany

Ann Chiswell <annchiswell@...>
 

Hallo, GerSig,
I have just joined the group. I am a beginner for researching German
Jewish genealogy, although I have been doing English research for many years.

I live in Plymouth, England, and I really only read and speak English,
though I did French at school and know a little holiday German.

I can trace my ancestors back to Herman BARUCH [Zvi bar Yithak] born
1824 and his wife Henrietta/Yetta ABRAHAM. 1822, both born in Prussian Poland.

Their son Abraham BARNETT married Catherine, daughter of Simon
GERBUR/GARBER. Simon was born 1830 in Poland, and his wife Amelia
was born 1831 in London, daughter of Hyman ABRAHAMS.

My primary goals are to find out anything about these two sets of ancestors
before they came to England.

KORACH, CORAK, MARINOVITZ....England, U.S, Australia & NZ #general

a1steve's rubbish removals <a1steve@...>
 

Dear All

Yoszef KORACH, also known as Joseph KORRIG/KORIGY,
naturalised in June, 1905. According to the London Gazette,
he came >from Austria/Hungary and he lived at 165 London Rd,
Leicester. Not yet applied for his file >from the UK Archives.

There is also another family, not sure if they are related to
Joseph.

Simon CORAK born c.1840, son of Abraham and Helen MOSKIVITZ,
married to Nettie nee MARINOVITZ. Simon went to the
US in the mid 1870s, with two of their sons born in England,
on some records, and London on others.
Joseph born c.1870 and Myer/Michael Morris born c. 1866/7.
Not sure if Nettie went to the US as well. I've not been able to
find an accurate match for the births nor what happened to Nettie.

If anybody is connected to this surname which can also be
spelt as CORAK, CORACK, KOREK, KORECK, KORRICK etc, please
contact me on a1steve@bigpond.com There are also families
with these names in Australia and New Zealand.
