and these are now available online in the "Miscellaneous" of our

ViewMate interpretation request - Polish and Gothic German #poland

Howard Fink <HowGen@...>
 

I have posted two death records >from the town of Tarnow in 1829. I need
help interpreting the names of the two individuals in the right hand

the characters are Latin and some are Gothic German, and I am having
difficulty recognizing some of the characters in these names.

It is on ViewMate at the following address:

Isaac/Yitzchak #poland

David Ellis
 

Here's a tip if you're trying to find a record in JRI-Poland for a relative
with the given name Isaac or Yitzchak.

There are multiple spellings in the records. The corresponding name in
Polish is often spelled Icek or Iciek, but sometimes it is rendered Jciek.
The D-M "sounds like" searches yield different results when you look for
records with given names sounding like Iciek and Jciek. You'll want to
search for both!

Yizkor Book Project, November 2013 #lithuania

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

So what would you like to hear about first in regards the Yizkor Book
Project in November - the good news or the good news? <g>

Well, the first piece of good (excellent) news is that during November the
Yizkor Books in Print Project sold its one thousandth book! This is
definitely a remarkable achievement and my warmest congratulations go out to
Joel Alpert and his merry band of volunteers who have made this milestone
possible.

Apart >from the encouraging sales and feedback we continue to receive
regarding this project, new titles are constantly being added and just
today, the Josef Rosin memoir "My Journey to Freedom: Kybartai to Haifa" has
now been made available for purchase. Details of this and the other books
and this project, in general, can be found at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html

Next piece of good news is that the complete translation of the Molchad,
Belarus Yizkor book (Molchadz, In Memory of the Jewish Community) is now
online. This could have never come about but for the never-ending diligence
and determination of Myrna Siegel who has been and continues to be the
guiding light behind this project.

Whilst I could keep going on endlessly about these pieces of good news, I
would just like to note just another two. During this last month we greatly
received a set of two very interesting memoirs presented by Renate Krakauer
and these are now available online in the "Miscellaneous" of our
Translations Index at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html The
other piece of good news was provided by Judy Petersen who has painstakingly
transliterated the most useful family name index for the Pinkas Hungary
(Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Hungary) volume and this, as well, is
now available online.

Now to facts and figures for November, during this last month we have added
3 new projects:

- Karczew, Poland (Memorial book of Otvotsk and Kartshev)

Abrams vs Abramovich #lithuania

Nicole Martin <nmartin81@...>
 

Hi All, I hope everyone is having a Happy Chanukah! I had a wonderful
breakthrough in my family tree and found the descendants of some
relatives that we thought never made it over. I am cross checking their
family rumors with mine and hoping to find answers and then going to the
records at litvaksig and seeing what I can find.

My family had told me that our name had been "something with Abram
like Abramson or Abramovich maybe?". The family members I have recently
found were told "It was Abrams" (much more definitively). My question
is: Would it be possible when going through archives that an Abrams
household is related to an Abramovich or Abramson household? Or are
those 2 separate and distinct surnames that would not be simply
translated differently? And if it is useful they lived in Tavrig.

Thanks in advance for any help!

[Please see especially the references below to Dynow and Lesko,
Poland, and Rudky and Yavoriv, Ukraine -- towns once in Galicia.
Also, please note that the Melnitsa book that Lance mentions is for
the once Russian town at coordinates 5109 2506, not the Galician
town with the same name.]

Shalom,

So what would you like to hear about first in regards the Yizkor Book
Project in November - the good news or the good news?<g>

Well, the first piece of good (excellent) news is that during November
the Yizkor Books in Print Project sold it it's one thousandth book!
This is definitely a remarkable achievement and my warmest
congratulations go out to Joel Alpert and his merry band of
volunteers who have made this milestone possible. Apart >from the
encouraging sales and feedback we continue to receive regarding
this project, new titles are constantly being added and just today, the
Josef Rosin memoir "My Journey to Freedom: Kybartai to Haifa" has
now been made available for purchase. Details of this and the other
books and this project, in general, can be found at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html

Next piece of good news is that the complete translation of the
Molchad, Belarus Yizkor book (Molchadz, In Memory of the Jewish
Community) is now online. This could have never come about but for
the never-ending diligence and determination of Myrna Siegel who
has been and continues to be the guiding light behind this project.

Whilst I could keep going on endlessly about these pieces of good
news, I would just like to note just another two. During this last
month we greatly received a set of two very interesting memoirs
presented by Renate Krakauer and these are now available online in
the "Miscellaneous" of our Translations Index at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html The other piece
of good news was provided by Judy Petersen who has painstakingly
transliterated the most useful family name index for the Pinkas
Hungary (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Hungary) volume
and this, as well, is now available online.

Now to facts and figures for November, during this last month we
have added 3 new projects:
