Shalom,

It seems fair to warn you that this report is rather long, 93 projects long
in fact, so that if you are in the middle of something you might want to
come back to this later <g>

Yes, it is quite clear that a lot went on in October in the Yizkor Book
Project and, for instance, I was excited to see that for several projects,
we are getting closer and closer to seeing the translation of whole books
online. Clearly, such a feat doesn't come about overnight and without a
dedicated team effort which usually takes months and even years but, believe
me, it is definitely worth the effort providing the researchers of today and
tomorrow, a wealth of information on our communities which were destroyed in
the Holocaust. To give you an idea of how of the number of communities
involved, at this stage in time, the Yizkor Book Project now contains
information on around 1500 communities and 650 books and we continue to
press on to cover communities, yet to be reached.

I must point out that our html team is integrally behind this month's
extraordinary achievement and so, my heartfelt thanks go out to Osnat
Ramaty, Max Heffler and Jason Hallgarten for their continued efforts, never
saying no and for maintaining such high standards of work.

Please note that the translations that are online can be reached by clicking
on blue links in the indexes and tables of contents, so that if you find
that the article you're looking for has no link, it means that it hasn't
been translated yet. If this is the case, I suggest you contact the
coordinator of the particular book you're interested in or if there is no
coordinator, please contact me and I'll see what can be done to facilitate
the translation.

Note that a very positive way of helping to see translations placed online
is by supporting one of the many Translation Funds which have been set up to
bring about the professional translation of the Yizkor Books. If you feel
able to support this effort, please go to the Yizkor Book JewishGen-erosity
page:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
to learn about the Translation Funds currently underway.

And further about translations; in recent times, I have received messages
from Hebrew speakers who would like to read the Yizkor Books but are unable
to read Yiddish sections and are not fluent enough in English to read our
online translations. For this reason, we have begun to add in Hebrew
translations - for instance, for Staszow, Poland and I would be pleased to
hear >from volunteers who are able to translate >from Yiddish to Hebrew, or
from the English into Hebrew to help make progress on this initiative for
other Yizkor books.

The New York Public Library has a great collection of City photographs but I am
not sure how easy it would be to isolate a specific address.

The New York City Municipal Archives has the 1930s tax photos which were a picture
of each individual building in the City. I know it is not the exact time frame
you are looking for but it might give you something. The pictures can be ordered
via the mail (they are not inexpensive) or if you go to the Archives you can see
microfilmed copies of the pictures and you can print out a photocopy for a minimal
charge. They are not as good as original photos but the copies off the laser
printer sometimes come out fairly good depending on the quality of the original
photo.

Its a bit of an involved process to look up the building. You need the exact
address and the cross streets to start with. They you have to look that up on a
reference map which gives you the plot and then you go to the microfilm and search
out the specific picture. I have done this for people but I do ask for a fee to
cover the cost of my travel, etc.

Stuart Ungar,

For pictures of what those locations looked liked then: Between 1939 and 1941
(and, again in the mid-1980s), NYC photographed every house and building in each
of the five boroughs:

I hope this information is useful or, at least, interesting.

Searching WULKAN, Bernhard(t). I only have sketchy information:
Born 1849 in Oswiecim. At some point he emigrated/moved to Vienna/St.
Polten.

Sons Ludwig and Feodor born in 1880, 1882 in St. Polten. He owned a
store in St. Polten--Bernhard and Sohne. Died in 1932 per obit notice
in the Neue Freie Presse.

So far I have searched the JRI-Poland databases and conducted a
comprehensive internet search. I have found no birth records or
records relating to his family.

I'm seeking information regarding Bernhardt's parents, siblings, and
family to trace family tree. Any help, clues, pointers are greatly
appreciated. Replies may be sent to me at:

Where in Lithuania did my grandfather marry? #lithuania

Mglevinson07@...
 

Dear Siggers:

I have a faint-ish photocopy of the second marriage of my paternal
grandfather, Simon/Shimel LEJZENZOHN/LEVENSON/LEVINSON in Spring
1904 to an Ayda Gittel, who was divorcee and who may have converted
to Judaism (at a previous date, it is believed). The marriage took
place in a place named Hay, Nun, Lamed, Lamed. Can anyone please
have a guess or let me know if they think they can work out where
the marriage took place? I say in Lithuania because the Ketubah
says "Ketubah" and that it was printed in Vilna (in Cyrillic script
underneath the Hebrew wording).

Many thanks for all or any help.
