Shalom,

Whilst you munch on your matzo, I will provide you with something to read
about what happened in the Yizkor Book Project during March.

For a start, as I predicted in previous reports, there were a number of
projects that were completed this month.

- Dotnuva, Lithuania (Letters >from Dotnuva)
- Kremenets, Ukraine (Memorial book of Krzemieniec)
- Szczuczyn, Poland (>from the Inferno Back to Life)

The completion of the Kremenets book, in particular, comes after many years
of dedicated coordination by Ron Doctor and Ellen Garshick and quite a few
volunteers who deserve a deal of thanks for their splendid translations. The
result of all this team's efforts has now been rewarded by the placement of
the whole book online but they certainly aren't resting on their laurels and
the translations of other Kremenets Yizkor Books continues on with great
earnest.

It is also important for me to note the completion of the Szczuczyn project
which is a personal memoir belong to Itzhak Wertman z"l, who sadly passed
away quite recently. I had the honor of being in contact this fine gentleman
over many years and, as with many of the Holocaust survivors, he saw the
great importance of making the Yizkor Book material readily available to the
present generation and those to come. We are deeply indebted to him for his
participation with the YB Project.

Now in order for our project to continue and expand, we are always on the
lookout for volunteers to help out in the wide scope of activities the
Yizkor Book Project involves. So, if you are able to translate >from Hebrew
or Yiddish, edit translated material or help type up English pages, your
assistance in these fields would be most welcome and I would be very pleased
to hear >from you.

Now to facts and figures for March, during this last month we have added
these 2 new projects:

Dunaszerdahely)

Latin America #LatinAmerica Yizkor Book Project, March 2013 #latinamerica

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Whilst you munch on your matzo, I will provide you with something to read
about what happened in the Yizkor Book Project during March.

For a start, as I predicted in previous reports, there were a number of
projects that were completed this month.

- Dotnuva, Lithuania (Letters >from Dotnuva)
- Kremenets, Ukraine (Memorial book of Krzemieniec)
- Szczuczyn, Poland (>from the Inferno Back to Life)

The completion of the Kremenets book, in particular, comes after many years
of dedicated coordination by Ron Doctor and Ellen Garshick and quite a few
volunteers who deserve a deal of thanks for their splendid translations. The
result of all this team's efforts has now been rewarded by the placement of
the whole book online but they certainly aren't resting on their laurels and
the translations of other Kremenets Yizkor Books continues on with great
earnest.

It is also important for me to note the completion of the Szczuczyn project
which is a personal memoir belong to Itzhak Wertman z"l, who sadly passed
away quite recently. I had the honor of being in contact this fine gentleman
over many years and, as with many of the Holocaust survivors, he saw the
great importance of making the Yizkor Book material readily available to the
present generation and those to come. We are deeply indebted to him for his
participation with the YB Project.

Now in order for our project to continue and expand, we are always on the
lookout for volunteers to help out in the wide scope of activities the
Yizkor Book Project involves. So, if you are able to translate >from Hebrew
or Yiddish, edit translated material or help type up English pages, your
assistance in these fields would be most welcome and I would be very pleased
to hear >from you.

Now to facts and figures for March, during this last month we have added
these 2 new projects:

Dunaszerdahely)

German. I am first generation American born. My mom and dad both came
to America with their parents in late 1938 /early 1939. My mom can read
German but not if the handwriting is sloppy.

I already had the names/birth and dates dates of my grandparents and
some of my great-grandparents. I now have the death dates of all my
grandparents..... <snip> With help >from distant family members
(and Rolf Hofmann) I have the dates of birth and death of most of my
great-great grandparents........ <snip>

My JGFF Researcher ID number is 501905. The family names and ancestral towns
that I have entered in the JewishGen family finder are:

REINHEIMER-Beerfelden, Hessen - I am looking for where my
great-grandmother got married and where her parents were born
and married. I'm looking for where they were before.
All my great-grandparents ' children were born in Beerfelden, but
the Standesamt told me the parents were not born or married there.
HERZ family >from Markt Berolzheim, Bavaria & Numbrecht/Geseke, Westphalia

The National Library (NLI) and the Central Archives (CAHJP) have merged #ukraine

rosef@...
 

This message just came out. I am sure it will of interest to many of you.

The National Library (NLI) and the Central Archives (CAHJP) have merged

The National Library of Israel (NLI) and the Central Archives for the
History of the Jewish People (CAHJP) are happy to announce a recent
merger between both institutions. For over 120 years, the National
Library of Israel has been collecting, preserving and making
accessible one of the world’s most significant collections of Hebraica
and Judaica. The merger with the CAHJP will strengthen both
institutions and eventually provide improved accessibility to the
overwhelming collections which have been collected by the CAHJP. The
CAHJP was founded over 70 years ago in Jerusalem by a group of
historians and public figures who sought to preserve the historical
heritage of the Jewish people. Over the years the CAHJP managed to
collect the archives of thousands of communities, organizations,
families and Jewish personalities >from 64 countries. Its current
holdings consist of more than 60 million pages of original material,
spanning >from the 14th century up until the 20th century, with an
additional 18 million frames of microfilm.

Although the National Library of Israel (NLI) was founded in 1892,
only in 2007 was the National Library Act passed in the Knesset,
establishing its status as the National Library of the Jewish people
and the State of Israel. The mission of the National Library of Israel
(NLI) is to collect, preserve, cultivate and endow treasures of
knowledge, heritage and culture, with an emphasis on the State of
Israel and pre-state history, and the Jewish people. By incorporating
current and evolving technologies, at the nexus of Israel's national
and cultural center in Jerusalem, the NLI will forge the rich past
with the intellectual and cultural productivity of generations to
come. The NLI plays a transformative role, opening its physical and
virtual gates to people of all nations and religions, committed to
serving a broad and diversified population of users, both in Israel
and globally. As part of its renewal, the NLI has updated its
collection strategy, deciding to strengthen its archival collections
by merging with the most important archive for the history of the
Jewish people. The merging process will last several years, eventually
transferring the collections of the CAHJP to the National Library of
Israel's new building.

Bucharest marriages ~1890s #romania

Sorin Goldenberg <soring0412@...>
 

The marriage record usually says if the groom or bride were single. If
not it might say which marriage out it was, and the reason.
This is true for civil marriages, as this type of marriage was the
only one recognized by the Romanian authorities since 1865.
The exact content of the record fluctuates between places.
