Memorial pages - Dabrowa Gornicza #general

Lance Ackerfeld <ackerfeld@...>
 

Dear Dabrowa Gornicza Researchers,

I am honored to be able to announce that the 85 pages of memorial pages from
the Dabrowa Gornicza Yizkor Book are now online in the JewishGen Yizkor Book
Project. These pages include a myriad of photographs and names that
immortalize members of families who died in the Holocaust whilst also
providing important details for the researcher about these same families.

This project took quite a time before it saw the light of day and most of
the credit for these impressive pages must be given to Osnat Ramaty who
burned large quantities of midnight oil in keeping the format of these pages
as close as possible to the original. My thanks also go out to Ricky Benhart
who graciously volunteered to help translate the Yiddish dedications within
this section.

The index for these pages can be found at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Dabrowa/Dabnec.html

And the main page for the Dabrowa Gornicza Yizkor Book at:

Yours,
Lance Ackerfeld
Project Coordinator

Visiting Cemeteries #general

Joseph Fibel <JFibel@...>
 

Dear Genners:

I have a couple of additional comments on visiting
family cemeteries that may not have been visited in a long time.

Ask the cemetery office on the phone before visiting if there is perpetual
care on the graves you are researching. If not, you should be prepared to
rescue the grave(s) >from extensive overgrowth. Therefore, bring with you
also a pair of clippers (if there are two of you bring two pair). Wear long
sleeve shirts and long pants not shorts. Also bring several large garbage
bags for the debris >from clearing up the plot. Of course, bring a camera
(and extra batteries,) a clipboard with extra paper and several pens and
paper. Hopefully, you won't need all of this but you might. (I have)

Record everything on the grave stones as well as taking pictures and look
around for relatives.

If you find well tended graves ask the office who is taking care of the
graves. It probably will be a cousin.

Take pictures of the plot gates, and of course, look for relatives' graves.

If there are still burials taking place, ask the office the name, address,
and phone number of the person giving permission to open graves. That
organization might have info not available elsewhere.

Take down the names, addresses and phone #'s of the nearby headstone
suppliers because they might have information for you.

The cemetery also probably has the number of the death certificate and may
even still retain a copy. Always politely ask for a copy of the plot map or
even a cemetery map if available.

There are two additional things you might want to plan to do at the same
time during your visit. The first is to visit the local library looking for
a copy of an obit and secondly to go to the local court house looking for
the Surrogates Court (or its local equivalent) and try to get get a copy of
the will(s)

re re How to recruit JewishGenners in Russia, Poland or Ukraine #general

Alice Josephs
 

As Dorota has said, language is probably the major barrier. How many of
us understand messages on or could attempt to write a message to a
Slavic language discussion group? Yet the ability to converse in these
languages could well also open up our research and take it into fresh
directions.

Also surely some of the same problems which exist in all countries must
arise? The student population is probably the sector with most
opportunity to access the internet. But how many students of Jewish
descent just on the cusp of their working lives and living the student
life feel the need to do genealogy? While a few may do, many may only
come to genealogy later on in their lives.

Also apart >from professionals who have daily access to the internet,
how many of the older generation have access to the internet?

Perhaps it is also worth asking how do we make an English/American
language centric group more accessible to those who have no or little
English. Jewishgen, I think, has a already made efforts to translate
some of its resources into other languages and probably would be happy
for volunteers to come forward to help further with this? Perhaps we
could widen this discussion to discover what is being done for those
without or with little English and throw this open to suggestions which
are do-able for a mostly volunteer organization?

I apologize.

Prayers for safety #general

Rachelle <rlberliner@...>
 

Perhaps this post is an abstract relationship to Jewish genealogy. I was
able to locate a newly-found cousin who was a resident of New Orleans
through another member of his family and my thoughts went to all the Jewish
families who may not have been able to locate theirs. Thus, it is
my thought that today's Jewishgenners are the descendants of those we search
for so diligently >from our pasts, trying to obtain original locations,
names, and information about our ascendants. Some of our own genners, as
well as their ascendants could possibly be missing or lost during the
tragedy of hurricane Katrina.

With that thought in mind, I would like to direct this message to our
Jewishgenners >from New Orleans, other locations in LA, and Mississippi,
"We pray you were able to get to a safe place and that your lives can soon
be restored to normal."

We send you love and best wishes for overcoming this unforseen devastation.

Sincerely,
Rachelle & Sam Berliner
