Prague digitalised archive : saving images. #austria-czech

Peter.Lowe@...
 

Jan Hellmann wrote how software such as Gadwin Printscreen can
facilitate the process of making screenshots >from the Prague City
Archives Prague "Census". For example such software allows one to define
the area to be captured, rather than the whole window as when using the
ALT+PrtScn combination. I have been using ABBYY Screenshot Reader for
this purpose.

However this does not address the question as to whether it is possible
to download the digitized image in its original resolution.

The problem with the printscreen/screenshot-type approach is that one
has to enlarge the image on the screen in order to "see" the original
resolution. This means that one has to create several screenshots for
each image. These then need to be "stitched" together. Again there is
software available, but it is time-consuming to get it done perfectly.

Yizkor Book Project, June 2011 #austria-czech

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

As we head out into the long hot summer or the long cold winter, for those
on the other side of the planet, I have to report that June was yet another
"hyperactive" month for the Yizkor Book Project. Happily, quite a large
number of new books and entries were added and notably, a new Translation
project has been added this month for Dej, Romania (Des, Hungary) and we are
looking for financial support of this project in order to allow those of you
with roots there, to read about the people and thriving culture that existed
before the Holocaust. If you feel able to assist in helping to finance this
or any of our currently running translation projects at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
, your help would be much appreciated. The importance of these funds is
clearly illustrated in this month's updates, half of which are projects in
our Translations Funds.

June also saw the addition of a large number of necrologies which not only
immortalize the names of our loved ones but also can provide their family
relationships, professions, dates of birth and more or these people. As
such, these lists are also an invaluable genealogical resource and to assist
in research, the names >from the necrologies are periodically added to the
searchable Yizkor Book Necrology Database at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/ These days, this important but
time-taking work of adding to the database is carried out by Max Heffler,
who also carries out a myriad of other tasks for JewishGen and elsewhere. I
would truly like to spread the heavy load which these days falls heavily on
Max's shoulders alone and am eager to hear >from any of you who have some
time to help in preparing the lists in Excel which are then added to the
database.

Religious Part of Interview #general

Yisroel Shapiro
 

I am looking for help in phrasing questions during an interview in order to
find a hint of religious affiliation amongst those that are predominantly
secular. There may be some customs that are practiced or artifacts that are
still being used. Or they remember customs that once was.

Specially I plan on visiting a elder cousin of my father who whose heart is
Jewish despite the fact he married a gentile. He is my one link to anything
Jewish of yesteryear. His grandparents were religious and was sent on
missions to bring care packages to relatives in different part of NYC. His
memories or >from before college .....

His sister likes talking but not about herself down.... she has pictures
which I am planning to see. I planning either to tell them I am going or
show up at there door to a preserve what ever I can .. I am going bonkers
because I look at my questions and I not satisfied enough.

My grandfather and family was the black sheep of his siblings. There might
have been some kind of feud. Not to butt in -butt to understand while I
am there I would like to find out >from these cousins their take on the
situation and how they would react now with there life experience. I would

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Religious Part of Interview #general

Yisroel Shapiro
 

I am looking for help in phrasing questions during an interview in order to
find a hint of religious affiliation amongst those that are predominantly
secular. There may be some customs that are practiced or artifacts that are
still being used. Or they remember customs that once was.

Specially I plan on visiting a elder cousin of my father who whose heart is
Jewish despite the fact he married a gentile. He is my one link to anything
Jewish of yesteryear. His grandparents were religious and was sent on
missions to bring care packages to relatives in different part of NYC. His
memories or >from before college .....

His sister likes talking but not about herself down.... she has pictures
which I am planning to see. I planning either to tell them I am going or
show up at there door to a preserve what ever I can .. I am going bonkers
because I look at my questions and I not satisfied enough.

My grandfather and family was the black sheep of his siblings. There might
have been some kind of feud. Not to butt in -butt to understand while I
am there I would like to find out >from these cousins their take on the
situation and how they would react now with there life experience. I would
like comments I this point.

Any other tips -in general is welcome.

Newark gravestone photos wanted. #general

Mark London <mrl@...>
 

Hi - I'm looking for a kind person to take some photos of my wife's
relatives, the Hoffmans (and the Backers) at the Jewish Educational
Center Cemetery on McClellan Street in Newark:

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=rapList&rapMode=cemetery&rapCemeteryId=1116678
[Shortened URL: http://goo.gl/B0EoK ]

The request has been on findagrave.com for a while, but I suspect no one on
that web site has any interest invisiting downtown Newark. I'll pay a fee,
if necessary. Thanks!

Family EMANUEL in New York #general

Steven Emanuel <steven.emanuel@...>
 

Dear All

With the enormous amount of assistance given by readers of this list I was
able to trace much of the lives of three Great Uncles who emigrated to New
York >from Obrigheim in Germany. However I have had little success in finding
their descendants. The brief details of each family are:

Simon EMANUEL. Arrived firstly in 1884 (San Francisco), later returned
home, studied, married Eugenia and went to New York in 1905. There were two
children:
1. Paul (aka Edward P),born 1906, a lawyer & Immigration Judge who married
Dorothy Silverman in later life. He died in 1997. Was there an earlier
marriage and children?
2. Helen born 1919 - no definitive further trace found.

Adolf EMANUEL. Arrived New York in 1940 with wife Johanna. Adolf seems to
have died within a few months and Johanna in 1978. They had one son:
Erich, born 1903 and arrived in New York in 1938 with wife Trude. He died
1964 and she in 2001. The name was changed to EDEN. Their son:
Hans (aka John), born 1933, became an Opthalmologist. I understand that his
partner was male but there may have been adopted children.

Eugen EMANUEL. Arrived in New York in 1935, with wife Flora and their two
children following in 1936. I have not traced either of them further. The
two sons are:
1. Werner (aka Donald), born 1921, also no further trace.
2. Cola (aka Nick C) born 1924. He died in WW2 in "The Rheims Accident" of
1945. So possibly no wife or children.

Does anyone know of these families? If so I would be delighted to hear >from
them!

Re: SCHONFELD & RABINOWICZ families, London #rabbinic

Hello Neil Rosenstein,

I'm sorrie to say I do not have additional information. I do however
have a question;
I'm trying to find out the names of descendants of rabbi Zeev von
Zbaraz. His father Michael von Zlotshov (1726-1781) seems to have as
last name Rabinowitz. Since the name means son of the rabbi, searching
this name is like looking for water in the sea.

Did rav Elimelech Yakov Isaac Rabinowitz have Ze'ev von Zbaraz as anscestor?

Kind regards,

Mathilde muPe
