Yizkor Book Project, February 2012 #poland #danzig #gdansk #germany

Shalom,

To begin with, I am very excited to inform you that no less than 5 new
Translation Project funds were initiated over this last month:

- Briceni, Moldova
- Jadow, Poland
- Sierpc, Poland
- Smarhon (Smorgon), Belarus
- Sokyryany (Sekiryani, Bessarabia), Ukraine

Now, for those aren't familiar with the concept, the Translation Funds are
set up to collect donations for the professional translation of the Yizkor
Books. Since finding a skilled volunteer translators capable of taking on
the translation of a whole book is usually not realistic, our recommendation
is to set up a fund, within JewishGen, into which all of those people
interested in a particular community book can help support its translation
and for which donations are tax-exempt for US citizens. So if there is a
book you would like to see translated, please contact me and I'll explain
the ins and outs of how these fund work. Note that you'll find a full list
of our ongoing projects at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
and any financial support you are able to offer would be gratefully
received.

Other good news this last month was the kind donation to the Yizkor Book
Project of the Kielce, Poland book "The Martyrdom and Extermination of the
Jews in Kielce During World War II" by Prof. Krzysztof Urbanski, the first
sections of which have already been added. Please note that in recent times
we have received a number of complete books which are, slowly but surely,
being added into our Yizkor Book projects.

And on completed books, the first books to roll out of our Yizkor Books in
Print Project will very shortly be available. If you wish to know further
about this project, please go to http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html
which has all you would like to know about this steadily growing project.

Before detailing last month's statistics, I would personally like to wish
you all a joyful Purim and suggest that if you have a chance, read some of
the many recollections of this holiday in our online Yizkor Books. In some
small way, we are keeping up the fond memories of this vibrant Jewish
holiday in those multitudes of communities that no longer exist.

Birth or Death record of child #general

Natalie & Ernie Hartz
 

I am searching for some record: birth, death, burial, etc. of my paternal uncle who
died sometime around 1912 to 1914 as a child. I have searched JOWBR, Steve Morse's
One Step, the commercial site we all know, and the cemetery site where he is
possibly buried (his parents are buried there).

My father, Edward Berkowsky, was born in 1911 in NY and another son Joseph was born
in 1918 in NY, so I am assuming that this child was too. My father told me that
there was a brother born between he and Joe, named Milton, who died at a young age.
I have a photo of a very young Edward and Joseph with their mother so this seems to
be correct. (unless the picture is actually Edward and Milton).

Both my paternal grandparents are buried in Mt Zion Cemetery in Queens NY and the
burial society for my grandparents and my parents was the Delaticher Society. I can
find no record of birth, death, or burial for this child. Does anyone have any idea
where to search with this skimpy information about Milton Berkowsky? If this
information would generally benefit others in their personal searches, then please
reply publicly, if the information is specific to my search, please respond
privately.

DNA Research #DNA Yizkor Book Project, February 2012 #dna

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

To begin with, I am very excited to inform you that no less than 5 new
Translation Project funds were initiated over this last month:

- Briceni, Moldova
- Jadow, Poland
- Sierpc, Poland
- Smarhon (Smorgon), Belarus
- Sokyryany (Sekiryani, Bessarabia), Ukraine

Now, for those aren't familiar with the concept, the Translation Funds are
set up to collect donations for the professional translation of the Yizkor
Books. Since finding a skilled volunteer translators capable of taking on
the translation of a whole book is usually not realistic, our recommendation
is to set up a fund, within JewishGen, into which all of those people
interested in a particular community book can help support its translation
and for which donations are tax-exempt for US citizens. So if there is a
book you would like to see translated, please contact me and I'll explain
the ins and outs of how these fund work. Note that you'll find a full list
of our ongoing projects at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
and any financial support you are able to offer would be gratefully
received.

Other good news this last month was the kind donation to the Yizkor Book
Project of the Kielce, Poland book "The Martyrdom and Extermination of the
Jews in Kielce During World War II" by Prof. Krzysztof Urbanski, the first
sections of which have already been added. Please note that in recent times
we have received a number of complete books which are, slowly but surely,
being added into our Yizkor Book projects.

And on completed books, the first books to roll out of our Yizkor Books in
Print Project will very shortly be available. If you wish to know further
about this project, please go to http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html
which has all you would like to know about this steadily growing project.

Before detailing last month's statistics, I would personally like to wish
you all a joyful Purim and suggest that if you have a chance, read some of
the many recollections of this holiday in our online Yizkor Books. In some
small way, we are keeping up the fond memories of this vibrant Jewish
holiday in those multitudes of communities that no longer exist.

As far as the February figures go, during this last month we have added
these 6 new projects:

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Birth or Death record of child #general

Natalie & Ernie Hartz
 

I am searching for some record: birth, death, burial, etc. of my paternal uncle who
died sometime around 1912 to 1914 as a child. I have searched JOWBR, Steve Morse's
One Step, the commercial site we all know, and the cemetery site where he is
possibly buried (his parents are buried there).

My father, Edward Berkowsky, was born in 1911 in NY and another son Joseph was born
in 1918 in NY, so I am assuming that this child was too. My father told me that
there was a brother born between he and Joe, named Milton, who died at a young age.
I have a photo of a very young Edward and Joseph with their mother so this seems to
be correct. (unless the picture is actually Edward and Milton).

Both my paternal grandparents are buried in Mt Zion Cemetery in Queens NY and the
burial society for my grandparents and my parents was the Delaticher Society. I can
find no record of birth, death, or burial for this child. Does anyone have any idea
where to search with this skimpy information about Milton Berkowsky? If this
information would generally benefit others in their personal searches, then please
reply publicly, if the information is specific to my search, please respond
privately.

N. American Jewish Community Books #general

Joseph Fibel
 

Dear Gen Friends,

from time to time when posters ask about books about Jewish communities I have to
send a reminder about a very good source.

At the 2000 Conference on Jewish Genealogy in Salt Lake City Joan Rimnon & Hal
Bookbinder made up a listing of over 800 books about Jewish life in North American
communities. This listing is indexed first by State, then by city. Some cities
have many different books. Titles, authors and publishers and dates are given.

A couple of years later the authors added additional books and arranged to have
this listing posted to the IAJGS site (iajgs.org)where it resides even to this day.
If your local public library doesn't have the books (and it probably doesn't) they
can always be obtained by your reference librarian on inter-library loan.

You can always scan or copy the pages which refer to your family.

Of course Google Books is also a great source.

So sad to hear of Stephanie Weiner's passing. She helped many adoptees find their
biological families. I have asked for her help a number of times when an adoptee
joined one of my DNA projects, and Stephanie was always there with support and
helpful suggestions. May she rest in peace.

MODERATOR NOTE: Stephanie touched many people in many different ways. I'm sure
there are dozens of people who could write about all Stephanie did for them, but

Dubossary project updates, Rybnitsa Jewish community #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

You may remember couple of weeks ago I told you about connections with an
existing Jewish Community in Dubossary, Moldova and an article about their
Holocaust Memorial. I have proposed several new projects to the group, and
here is the progress:

a new project added:
21. Translation/transcribing of Dubossary Mass Grave Records for almost 3000
Jews killed in 1941. The records will be published at Holocaust database and
at Bessarabia SIG website. Translator and the coordinator - Janet Furba,
Germany. Thank you to Janet for doing this. Records will be displayed at
Bessarabia SIG website and added to Holocaust Database of JewishGen.

Also a new KehilaLinks website for Dubossaray started - thanks to Alexander
Ozias, resident of Dubossary who will develop for JewishGen the website.

relatively good condition, about 300 grave stones were reconstructed. There
are a number of memorials for victims of Holocaust (photo of one you can

Bessarabia SIG #Bessarabia Dubossary project updates, Rybnitsa Jewish community #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

You may remember couple of weeks ago I told you about connections with an
existing Jewish Community in Dubossary, Moldova and an article about their
Holocaust Memorial. I have proposed several new projects to the group, and
here is the progress:

a new project added:
21. Translation/transcribing of Dubossary Mass Grave Records for almost 3000
Jews killed in 1941. The records will be published at Holocaust database and
at Bessarabia SIG website. Translator and the coordinator - Janet Furba,
Germany. Thank you to Janet for doing this. Records will be displayed at
Bessarabia SIG website and added to Holocaust Database of JewishGen.

Also a new KehilaLinks website for Dubossaray started - thanks to Alexander
Ozias, resident of Dubossary who will develop for JewishGen the website.

Yizkor Book Project, February 2012 #lodz #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

To begin with, I am very excited to inform you that no less than 5 new
Translation Project funds were initiated over this last month:

- Briceni, Moldova
- Jadow, Poland
- Sierpc, Poland
- Smarhon (Smorgon), Belarus
- Sokyryany (Sekiryani, Bessarabia), Ukraine

Now, for those aren't familiar with the concept, the Translation Funds are
set up to collect donations for the professional translation of the Yizkor
Books. Since finding a skilled volunteer translators capable of taking on
the translation of a whole book is usually not realistic, our recommendation
is to set up a fund, within JewishGen, into which all of those people
interested in a particular community book can help support its translation
and for which donations are tax-exempt for US citizens. So if there is a
book you would like to see translated, please contact me and I'll explain
the ins and outs of how these fund work. Note that you'll find a full list
of our ongoing projects at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
and any financial support you are able to offer would be gratefully
received.

Other good news this last month was the kind donation to the Yizkor Book
Project of the Kielce, Poland book "The Martyrdom and Extermination of the
Jews in Kielce During World War II" by Prof. Krzysztof Urbanski, the first
sections of which have already been added. Please note that in recent times
we have received a number of complete books which are, slowly but surely,
being added into our Yizkor Book projects.

And on completed books, the first books to roll out of our Yizkor Books in
Print Project will very shortly be available. If you wish to know further
about this project, please go to http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html
which has all you would like to know about this steadily growing project.

Before detailing last month's statistics, I would personally like to wish
you all a joyful Purim and suggest that if you have a chance, read some of
the many recollections of this holiday in our online Yizkor Books. In some
small way, we are keeping up the fond memories of this vibrant Jewish
holiday in those multitudes of communities that no longer exist.

Stephanie Weiner z"l #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

It is with sadness that I announce the death of Stephanie Weiner z"l , member of
the IAJGS Public Records Access Monitoring Committee (PRAMC). Stephanie succumbed
to pancreatic cancer early this morning, March 1.

Some of you may not have known Stephanie. She lived in San Diego County, was a
retired librarian, member of the Willamette Valley (Oregon) JGS, former member of
the San Diego JGS, and avid genealogist and attended many of the IAJGS
International Conferences on Jewish Genealogy. She is survived by many friends and
cousins. Stephanie will be buried in New Jersey, Sunday March 4, with a gravesite
ceremony at 1:00 PM at Beth Israel Cemetery US Highway 1 Woodbridge, NJ

Stephanie served on the IAJGS PRAMC since 2006. Her research and wordsmithing
skills made the IAJGS statements on pending legislation for the past 6 years
excellent representations on our behalf. Her most recent contribution was the
final wordsmithing on the IAJGS statement to the House Ways and Means Subcommittee
on Social Security regarding keeping the SSDI access open to the public--that was
only 2 weeks ago. Stephanie's outspokenness and willing to "fight the fight" on
behalf of records access will be greatly missed.

Jan Meisels Allen
IAJGS Vice President
Chairperson, IAJGS Public Records Access Monitoring Committee


MODERATOR NOTE: The JewishGen Discussion Group moderating team wishes to express
their condolences to Stephanie's family. May her memory serve as an inspiration to
us all.

International Conferences on Jewish Genealogy. She is survived by many friends and
cousins. Stephanie will be buried in New Jersey, Sunday March 4, with a gravesite
ceremony at 1:00 PM at Beth Israel Cemetery US Highway 1 Woodbridge, NJ

Stephanie served on the IAJGS PRAMC since 2006. Her research and wordsmithing
skills made the IAJGS statements on pending legislation for the past 6 years
excellent representations on our behalf. Her most recent contribution was the
final wordsmithing on the IAJGS statement to the House Ways and Means Subcommittee
on Social Security regarding keeping the SSDI access open to the public--that was
only 2 weeks ago. Stephanie's outspokenness and willing to "fight the fight" on
behalf of records access will be greatly missed.

MODERATOR NOTE: The JewishGen Discussion Group moderating team wishes to express

us all.
