Yizkor Book Project, November 2011 #germany

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

The activity during November was characterized by the addition of a large
number of new entries. As you'll see by the alphabetically ordered names of
the communities, we are rapidly approaching the last communities appearing
in the "Pinkas Lita" [Encyclopedia of Jewish communities, Lithuania] book,
and this month's list adds to the very long list of communities that this
book contains. It is so incomprehensible that the Lithuanian communities
appearing in this list were all decimated during the Holocaust and, of
course, Lithuania is "only" a part of the whole enormous Jewish tragedy.
I see the placing the translations of these communities online as one the
major aims of the Yizkor Book Project in its endeavor to ensure that the
memories of these communities and the people that lived in them are not
forgotten.

As far as existing projects go, I am pleased to report that during November,
the online translation of three books was completed, and we now have no less
than 75 projects online which are the entire translations of the original
Yizkor books. As such, I would like to send out my deep appreciation to the
coordinators and translators of these completed projects which are:

- Lyubcha, Belarus (Lubtch and Delatich; in memory of the Jewish community),
which is coordinated and translated by Ann Belinsky and Harvey Spitzer.
- Skuodas, Lithuania (Testimony on the murder of the Jews of Shkud,
Lithuania), which is coordinated by Rachel Mines and was initiated by
Aviva Tirosh.
- Svir, Belarus (Our Townlet Swir), which is coordinated by Lee Harrison.

I would also like to note the addition of a new Translation Fund added in
this month for the Stowbtsy, Belarus Yizkor Book, and am looking forward
to seeing this project take shape. Note that a very positive way of helping
to see translations placed online is by supporting this project or 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.

As always, we are always looking for volunteers to take on various tasks
within the Yizkor Book Project so that we can continue and expand on the
work done so far. So, if you have some time and would like to help out in
our continuously growing project, I would very much like to hear >from you.

As far as the November figures go, during this last month we have added
these 4 new projects:

New Death Record Microfilms at New Jersey State Archives #general

Ada Green
 

For many years, at least for as long as I have been doing genealogy, the New Jersey
State Archives in Trenton has held microfilms of death records only up through
1940. Yesterday I went down there to work with them when I discovered to my very
great and wonderful surprise that within the past year their microfilm holdings of
death records has been expanded up through 1955. If only I had known in advance, I
would have brought further names with me to research. Indeed on the spot, with the
particular kind of excitement known only to those us genealogists, I temporarily
interrupted the specific research I had gone down there to do so that I could go
online into findagrave.com to get the names of the individual New Jersey cemetery
burials that I have added over the years. I then looked up the death record for
all my New Jersey findagrave entries who passed away between 1941 and 1955 whose
death did not occur in New York City. Only then did I go back and complete my
originally intended research involving pre-1941 deaths.

New Jersey death records >from 1904 through 1948 are arranged in more or less
alphabetical order on the microfilms and can be searched directly, which is quite
easy. For years prior to 1904 and after 1948 it is a two-step process: one first
has to look up the name in a separate microfilm index that is arranged
alphabetically within each year to get the death certificate number and then one
looks up the actual record on separate microfilms, where the death records are
arranged in chronological order by certificate number. Anyone who is familiar
with looking up death records at the New York City Municipal Archives prior to the
onset of the online New York City death index on ItalianGen will be quite at home
with the two-step process at the New Jersey State Archives.

The microfilms are in drawers arranged in chronlogical order by microfilm number
and access is self-service. I had a very productive day yesterday. It's
reassuring to know that in an age when the ever-increasing trend is for states and
municipalities to restrict access to vital records, that New Jersey has just made
15 new years of death records accessible to the general public. Microfilms for the
years 1941-1946 were added last January and the remaining years (up through 1955)
were added over the summer.

Note that microfilm holdings for New Jersy birth and marriage records have not
been expanded.

Seeking obituary for Lillian (nee LIPSCHITZ) KAFLOWITZ #general

babycat3@...
 

I have been unable to find an obituary for the above named person who died on
8/22/09. Her last residence was reported to be Oakdale, Suffolk County, New York.
She was born in Manhattan on 11/30/29. spent hours searching through online
databases at cemeteries in New York, and various obituary sites with no luck. My
connection would be on the KAFLOWITZ side, but no one in the family has any idea of
a KAFLOWITZ family member being married to a Lillian.

Census report for 1930 does not show her with her parents, she would have been an
infant at that time.

I seem to recall there may be/have been a site where volunteers would look up
obituaries in their local areas for those in need. Since she passed away a little
over 2 years ago, perhaps this would be a quick find.

Any thoughts, suggestions, etc. would be appreciated. I suppose one of the only
stones left unturned would be for me to contact Jewish funeral homes in the Suffolk
County area, assuming she did die, or have services held for her there.

Any and all suggestions welcomed, and please respond privately.

Thank you,
Barbara Klein Meyers

The contents of GenAmi 58:
1- On March 11th 2012, GenAmi will celebrate its 15th anniversary There will be a
big party at the House of Mary WALEWSKA with a buffet and attractions, mainly
classical music and Klezmer There will be a stall with books (because we do not
have any more room in our library) and past issues of GenAmi. Our friends and
correspondents >from all over are welcome.
2- Let us come to genealogy. A study was carried out for several months for
Alsatian descent of Dominique STRAUSS-KAHN. Following the events that we know, it
has not yet been published. But this entirely new work was hard to establish and it
would be a shame to leave it in the drawers. We realized that he is a cousin of the
poet Claude VIGEE, and a descendant of Alexander HAUSER of Durmenach (mentioned in
last issue of Avotaynu)
3- A specialist of Wissembourg and surroundings sent us the story of a branch of
AUSCHER family of Lauterbourg, business relation of the Le Bel of Pechelbronn
4- The CERF family >from Nancy who went to Bouxwiller then New Orleans One of the
sons, Henry CERF, has been a banker at Wissembourg
5- An original study: >from the opera-glasses of Alice... to her genealogy One of
our members discovered in her family a collector of glasses: Alice SCHLOSS had well
known ancestors such as Hartwig WESSELY.
6- "My family exists, I met them!" Another member shows his enthusiasm when he
discovered His DRIBIN family in America that he believed completely destroyed.
7- News new studies of families >from Mackenheim
Abstracts : Elie Fabius et le monde de l'art Descendants of Joseph Lion FABIUS.
All range, first book of a young talented writer
8 - Reviews of genealogy
9 - Questions asked on GenAmi forum
10 - Place des Vosges in Paris

I think that, even written in French, this issue will interest many people.

Yizkor Book Project, November 2011 #southafrica

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

The activity during November was characterized by the addition of a large
number of new entries. As you'll see by the alphabetically ordered names of
the communities, we are rapidly approaching the last communities appearing
in the "Pinkas Lita" [Encyclopedia of Jewish communities, Lithuania] book,
and this month's list adds to the very long list of communities that this
book contains. It is so incomprehensible that the Lithuanian communities
appearing in this list were all decimated during the Holocaust and, of
course, Lithuania is "only" a part of the whole enormous Jewish tragedy.
I see the placing the translations of these communities online as one the
major aims of the Yizkor Book Project in its endeavor to ensure that the
memories of these communities and the people that lived in them are not
forgotten.

As far as existing projects go, I am pleased to report that during November,
the online translation of three books was completed, and we now have no less
than 75 projects online which are the entire translations of the original
Yizkor books. As such, I would like to send out my deep appreciation to the
coordinators and translators of these completed projects which are:

- Lyubcha, Belarus (Lubtch and Delatich; in memory of the Jewish community),
which is coordinated and translated by Ann Belinsky and Harvey Spitzer.
- Skuodas, Lithuania (Testimony on the murder of the Jews of Shkud,
Lithuania), which is coordinated by Rachel Mines and was initiated by
Aviva Tirosh.
- Svir, Belarus (Our Townlet Swir), which is coordinated by Lee Harrison.

I would also like to note the addition of a new Translation Fund added in
this month for the Stowbtsy, Belarus Yizkor Book, and am looking forward
to seeing this project take shape. Note that a very positive way of helping
to see translations placed online is by supporting this project or 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.

As always, we are always looking for volunteers to take on various tasks
within the Yizkor Book Project so that we can continue and expand on the
work done so far. So, if you have some time and would like to help out in
our continuously growing project, I would very much like to hear >from you.

As far as the November figures go, during this last month we have added
these 4 new projects:

- Biala Podlaska, Poland (Book of Biala Podlaska)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/biala_podlaska/biala_podlaska.html

South Africa SIG #SouthAfrica Yizkor Book Project, November 2011 #southafrica

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

The activity during November was characterized by the addition of a large
number of new entries. As you'll see by the alphabetically ordered names of
the communities, we are rapidly approaching the last communities appearing
in the "Pinkas Lita" [Encyclopedia of Jewish communities, Lithuania] book,
and this month's list adds to the very long list of communities that this
book contains. It is so incomprehensible that the Lithuanian communities
appearing in this list were all decimated during the Holocaust and, of
course, Lithuania is "only" a part of the whole enormous Jewish tragedy.
I see the placing the translations of these communities online as one the
major aims of the Yizkor Book Project in its endeavor to ensure that the
memories of these communities and the people that lived in them are not
forgotten.

As far as existing projects go, I am pleased to report that during November,
the online translation of three books was completed, and we now have no less
than 75 projects online which are the entire translations of the original
Yizkor books. As such, I would like to send out my deep appreciation to the
coordinators and translators of these completed projects which are:

- Lyubcha, Belarus (Lubtch and Delatich; in memory of the Jewish community),
which is coordinated and translated by Ann Belinsky and Harvey Spitzer.
- Skuodas, Lithuania (Testimony on the murder of the Jews of Shkud,
Lithuania), which is coordinated by Rachel Mines and was initiated by
Aviva Tirosh.
- Svir, Belarus (Our Townlet Swir), which is coordinated by Lee Harrison.

I would also like to note the addition of a new Translation Fund added in
this month for the Stowbtsy, Belarus Yizkor Book, and am looking forward
to seeing this project take shape. Note that a very positive way of helping
to see translations placed online is by supporting this project or 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.

As always, we are always looking for volunteers to take on various tasks
within the Yizkor Book Project so that we can continue and expand on the
work done so far. So, if you have some time and would like to help out in
our continuously growing project, I would very much like to hear >from you.

As far as the November figures go, during this last month we have added
these 4 new projects:

- Biala Podlaska, Poland (Book of Biala Podlaska)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/biala_podlaska/biala_podlaska.html

Holocaust sites, meetings with Jewish leaders, sight-seeing,
guide/interpreters, and two days to visit and spend time in your
shtetl, or shtetlach of interest. All meals are included (except for
one dinner and two lunches), the finest hotels (new & modern), modern
buses, and much more.

Howard and I are very familiar with the Archives, the archivists,
Lithuania and the main places of Jewish interest. Our previous trip
participants can be contacted if references are desired.
