1952. Lester died in 1997.
Had two sons Jeffrey and Scott. At one time lived on Yellowstone Blvd in
Queens and perhaps Forest Hills. Gladys had a younger brother.........given

After suggesting that your aunt had called herself and was known as
'Jenny', I would like to add that she may well have had in mind the
bird's name of 'Jenny Wren' shortened as a suitable substitute for
'Zipporah'.

There is no such thing as a translation of a name. People may choose
names that sound similar, or have the same initial, but there is no
absolute rule that Jewish and secular names must "match" in any way.

Phyllis is no more Tziporrah than Jennie. and Tamas has no real
connection to Shlomo, but those are my given names. (and some people
have non-matching biblical names, too.)

Tzpa sounds to me like a misreading (or miswriting) of tzippa. some
rabbis advise against nicknames or yiddish on headstones, but the
family often does put the name by which they were known.

"tanta" is yiddish, so her jewish name was likely tzippa (tziporah),
as on the hebrew inscription of her stone, and her english name was
jennie.

Is this a Yiddish translation? I know that I am Feigel in Yiddish
and Tzipporah in Hebrew but have never heard of it being translated
to Jennie. As far as I knew, Jennie was Sheindel.

Only one APPEL in the barrel. Need more #general

Les Simon <lsimon@...>
 

The story told around my grandmother's dinner table was that she and
the great Jewish philosopher Martin BUBER were cousins and had played
together as children. I am more interested in digging back into that
part of my family history than I am in claiming a famous relative.
However, research on him has provided a clue. He is the same age as my
grandmother Lilian (Regina in Jordanov) NATOWITZ and lived for a time in
Lemberg (Lvov, Lviv) lived for a time with his grandfather.

My grandmother talked about visits to see her grandparents and being
looked after on the train trip by her Uncle Emanuel. After her parents'
marriage and until the family moved to the Chicago (with a brief stop in
New York), they lived in Jordanow. Her mother's maiden name was Fannie
(Feigel) APPEL. Her father was Jakob APPEL (or APFEL) The first mention
of him is in the Weinstein family tree (Krakow Families) at the time of
his wedding to Reizel Beila WEINSTEIN in Krakow. Jordanow is 186 miles
from Lemberg, a relatively short trip. My grandmother frequently wrote
about visiting her relatives in NYC, but I have not found a connection.

So, on a whim, I tried looking in JewishGen for APPEL in Lemberg, and lo
and behold! I struck a goldmine. I even found an Emmanuel Appel.
However, it's more like finding a batch of old pictures with no identifiers.
Where do I go >from here? Can anyone fill in the blanks or help direct me
to the next step?

Record of Aliens Held for Special Inquiry #general

Eliana Aizim
 

I found a "Record of Aliens Held for Special Inquiry" related to my great
-uncle Leon AVERBACH, dated July 29, 1927. In the column "Cause of
Detention" it's written "LPC Dept Bond". I know what LPC means, but not
the rest. In the column "Departmental & Executive Orders / Date / Record No."
it's written "Bond (6)". As to the "Deportation" column, nothing was written.
In the Ship Manifest, his "Health Condition" was "good". I would like to know
what does "Dept Bond" and "Bond (6)" mean? I didn't find this in JGen
InfoFiles.

He lived in Kishinev, Romania, and I know that the reason why he went to
United States was not to live there, but to collect money in the
community and take it to Kishinev in order to buy land for a cemetery there.
He stayed 6 months in USA.

Re: Boston Mass. Burial Records - update #general

Barbara Zimmer
 

Dear Genners,
Here is another reason to say: Don't believe everything in "the records"!

I was trying to help Harold find the burial site for his Waxman
family in East Boston and called the Jewish Cemetery Association of
Massachusetts. They had nothing in their data base on the pertinent
people >from the 1800s.

After Jonathan posted a link to FamilySearch.org's compilation of
Massachusetts deaths, I saw that Nathan Waxman was buried in the
Ohabei Shalom Cemetery in 1913.

So I called back to the JMAC and the very nice lady looked in the
**old version of the records. There were the missing people with
information on where they were buried. I was able to tell her the
dates of death for Nathan, Hannah and Esther.

Now Harold's cousin has the information she wanted.

Lauterbach and Grebenau mentioned in Yizkor Book Project Report, May 2012 #germany

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

So, another month has passed and, as usual, quite a lot to report with quite
a few new books started.

Now, >from time to time, I receive emails asking why such and such Yizkor
Book only has a small amount of translated material. As I explain, each
time, the translations in the Yizkor Book Project are online through the
help of a great deal of volunteers who have either supported the
translations financially or have carried out the translations themselves.
There are around 700 books in the project and, unfortunately, not all the
books have coordinators and many books are still waiting for volunteers to
step forward to take on their translation coordination. If you are
interested in knowing what is involved in coordinating such a project, I'm
here to answer any questions you may have in this regard.

As noted above and in most of my reports, volunteers are the essence of the
Yizkor Book Project and although I try to mention and thank as many as I can
each time, I don't always get to everyone to credit or thank them. For this
reason, it was decided to put up an online list of the all the volunteers
who have worked/are working on some aspect of the Yizkor Book Project so
that in a central location they would receive some sort of recognition for
their participation in the project. The list now appears at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ and whilst the list already includes around
200 names, it is clear that this is still a drop in the ocean of the names
of volunteers involved in the project. With time, we hope to add in all the
names of people who have also been there to help out so don't be
disheartened if you don't yet appear there.

Another aspect of the Yizkor Book Project supported by volunteers is the
YBIP Project (Yizkor Books in Print) and I am pleased to inform you that
this project is definitely on a roll and last week Joel Alpert, YBIP
Coordinator, noted that 115 books had already been sold since the project's
instigation some months back. You may see what books are now available for
purchase at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html and also what books
are being prepared for publishing and also how it's possible to get involved
yourself in this initiative.

The Yizkor Book Project is also greatly assisted by donations to one of the
Translation Funds that have been set up to pay for the professional
translation of these books. This past month, a further such project was
added to the growing list - this time for Dumbraveni (Dombroven), Moldova
and if you are able to help financially to this or any other of the 58
funds, please go to
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
to see receive details of the translation projects are involved and their
proposal details.

As far as the May figures go, during this last month we have added these 8

German SIG #Germany Lauterbach and Grebenau mentioned in Yizkor Book Project Report, May 2012 #germany

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

So, another month has passed and, as usual, quite a lot to report with quite
a few new books started.

Now, >from time to time, I receive emails asking why such and such Yizkor
Book only has a small amount of translated material. As I explain, each
time, the translations in the Yizkor Book Project are online through the
help of a great deal of volunteers who have either supported the
translations financially or have carried out the translations themselves.
There are around 700 books in the project and, unfortunately, not all the
books have coordinators and many books are still waiting for volunteers to
step forward to take on their translation coordination. If you are
interested in knowing what is involved in coordinating such a project, I'm
here to answer any questions you may have in this regard.

As noted above and in most of my reports, volunteers are the essence of the
Yizkor Book Project and although I try to mention and thank as many as I can
each time, I don't always get to everyone to credit or thank them. For this
reason, it was decided to put up an online list of the all the volunteers
who have worked/are working on some aspect of the Yizkor Book Project so
that in a central location they would receive some sort of recognition for
their participation in the project. The list now appears at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ and whilst the list already includes around
200 names, it is clear that this is still a drop in the ocean of the names
of volunteers involved in the project. With time, we hope to add in all the
names of people who have also been there to help out so don't be
disheartened if you don't yet appear there.

Another aspect of the Yizkor Book Project supported by volunteers is the
YBIP Project (Yizkor Books in Print) and I am pleased to inform you that
this project is definitely on a roll and last week Joel Alpert, YBIP
Coordinator, noted that 115 books had already been sold since the project's
instigation some months back. You may see what books are now available for
purchase at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html and also what books
are being prepared for publishing and also how it's possible to get involved
yourself in this initiative.

The Yizkor Book Project is also greatly assisted by donations to one of the
Translation Funds that have been set up to pay for the professional
translation of these books. This past month, a further such project was
added to the growing list - this time for Dumbraveni (Dombroven), Moldova
and if you are able to help financially to this or any other of the 58
funds, please go to
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
to see receive details of the translation projects are involved and their
proposal details.
