New York Genealogy Class will begin June 1 #poland #ciechanow

Phyllis Kramer
 

So many of our immigrant ancestors lived in New York City -- they
started on the Lower East Side and upgraded to the Bronx and Brooklyn;
their children moved to Queens, Westchester, Long Island and New Jersey.

Sure we have the census >from Ancestry and vital records from
ItalianGen but this class will focus on the more esoteric documents
our ancestors generated -- naturalization, probate, landsmanshaften,
voters registration, newspapers, court cases -- and we will note which
documents will only be found on-site at various archives.We include
suggestions on where to research, where to wander and how to get
there. Students will have the opportunity to select a branch to
research and receive suggestions >from the instructor.

This 4 week Intermediate level genealogy course has 7 text lessons you
can download; there are no specific times for the course; students
interact with the instructor though a 24/7 FORUM, in a query and
answer format. To see a short video on how our courses work, go to
www.jewishgen.org/education and view the video at the very bottom of
the page. Note: these are intermediate genealogy topics and if you
wish to pursue another U.S. city, the instructor will be happy to work
with you.

Requirements: Students must feel comfortable browsing the web and
downloading files, have 5-10 hours available each week and should
select a family where census and vital records are already documented.
Tuition is $100 (there are no waivers for this course); registration
is open; go to www.JewishGen.org/education and click on the enrollment
link. For questions, please email JewishGen-Education@...

SZAPIRO or SHAPIRO - Esperanto - Bialystok #general

Jules Feldman
 

Saul SZAPIRO born Bialystok 1909, lived in Belgium until 1948 , died Cape
Town 1980.
Son of Zvi Hirsh Leib SZAPIRO (born Bialystok 1878 died Holocaust) and
Mirjam SHAPIRA (b. Pinsk 1881 d. Holocaust.

Saul left in his papers a guidebook to Bialystok written in Esperanto. In
the guide appears the name of Jakub SZAPIRO, who may have written the book.
We are trying to determine whether Jakub was related to Saul and how.
So far we have found the following details about Jakub SZAPIRO:
Born and lived in Bialystok 1897-1941, journalist,
he lived in Lipowa Street, 33 in Bialystok.
He had a sister Betty SZAPIRO -RASZKIN who survived together with her
daughter Felicja RASZKIN-NOWAK.
The only indication that he was a relative is that Saul SZAPIRO kept the
guide all the years.
Will be grateful if any of this forum can add information about Jakub and
family or connect us to his sister's family.

Orah was born in Israel. My mother was a cousin to Moshe Kopelovich.
My name is Varda Eisikovich. My e-mail addrress is: varda105@...
Orah might of remembered that I and my family left Israel and migrated to
Australia in 1951. =

Dear Genners,

As Publicity Specialist for Yizkor-Books-in-Print, part of the Yizkor
Books Project of JewishGen, I am pleased to announce that we now have
several new volumes available for you. All are in hard cover and have
a similar format and size (approximately 7" x 10"). All of our books
are available through Amazon and other distributors at discounted prices.

Our latest memorial titles include works about the following towns:
Rozniatow, Ukraine, Ostro Mazowiecka, Poland, Yampol, Ukraine, Polhajce,
Ukraine, Novogrudok, Belarus and a memoir, The Maple Tree Behind the
Barbed Wire - A Story of Survival >from the Czestochowa Ghetto.

These Yizkor books, almost all originally written in Yiddish and Hebrew
by former residents, have been beautifully translated by volunteers. We
are very grateful to all of them for their work, initiated, supervised,
and often prepared by Joel Alpert our amazing Project Coordinator.

Watch for word on the arrival of three other titles: Jaslo, Poland,
Telekhan, Belarus and Ciechanow, Poland all coming shortly.

For further information on all the books published through our project
please go to our web site:
