Dear Ms. Messik,

Thank you for you wonderful work on this database. I have found two of my
BLOOM grand uncles there. One had an address in London that I had not seen
for the family before. It also has the latest date yet showing the family
still living in London before they moved back to Poland.

Best regards,

For the past twelve months I have been transcribing the entry registers
of the Jews' Free School, Spitalfields. The permission for this project
was granted most enthusiastically both by the school and the London
Metropolitan Archives who house the JFS archive.

20,000 records have been added to the database search
www.jewishgen.org/databases/UK.

These records are entries >from c.1856 to c.1907 and contain name of
both pupil and parent or guardian, address, date of entry, previous
school (where noted), date of birth, date of leaving and reason for
leaving school. There is an accompanying page to be found at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/UK/JFS/index.html.

I do hope that many researchers will benefit >from my project.

ViewMate translation request - Polish #general

David Ellis
 

I've been researching my ancestors in Mlawa, Poland with surnames
LICHTENSZTEJN, SZPYRA, LUBELSKI and WYSZYNSKI. The WYSZYNSKI clan living
there was quite large, and I've explored two branches of this family in my
tree, but I haven't been able to connect them. Both my gg-gf Chaskel Nusen
LICHTENSZTEJN and his first cousin Yedith LICHTENSZTEJN married into the
WYSZYNSKI family. I know their spouses were related to each other, but it's
been a mystery to find out exactly how.

Recently I obtained a record for the birth of my g-gm's second cousin Chaim
Lajzer WYSZYNSKI. The image is posted on ViewMate:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM38858

A translation >from the original handwritten Polish would be very much
appreciated. Please feel free to send your responses directly to my e-mail
address, below.

Thank you very much!

Ongoing Priluki Scanning Project #general

Lisa P. Wanderman
 

A huge trove of Priluki historical information is an active, ongoing project
for Ukraine SIG!

As reported both on the Jewishgen/UkraineSIG Priluki Town Page:
http://www.jewishgen.org/Ukraine/GEO_town.asp?id=407, and on the UkraineSIG
discussion group, the project to scan and translate and index the nine LDS
microfilms of Priluki records >from the years 1855-1917 began in 2013.

What are these "Vital Records?" They are record books handwritten by rabbis
in cursive Russian and Hebrew documenting all births, deaths, marriages and
divorces of the Priluki community. Each microfilm records approximately 4-30
of these books. The records, especially >from the early years, can be
extremely damaged and very difficult to read. Most records, even >from 1855,
give family names and not just patronymics. The amount of information is
enormous. There are, however, some gaps in the records, as a few books have
evidently not survived: 1880 Births, for instance, is missing.

In addition to LDS archives in Salt Lake City, all nine microfilms (listed
below) are now in the collection of the Center for Jewish History in
Manhattan.

This huge, multistep project includes the volunteer work of multiple people.
Volunteers to digitally scan the microfilms, to label each file, to upload
the files to the online database, to translate the high resolution digital
files and place the information on specific format spread sheets, to proof
the spreadsheets and process them for eventual upload to the Jewishgen.org
database. It is hundreds and hundreds, if not thousands of hours of work. It
literally takes a village to tackle and complete this project. We need your
help and request your patience.

The status of this project as of March, 2015:

Film-1 2192583 (1855-1863) 19 Books. Scanned and about 95% translated.
Film-2 2192584 (1864-1874) 23 Books. Scanned and about 60% translated.
Film-3 2423892 (1860-1875) 4 Books. Scanned
Film-4 2423895 (1875-1883) 26 Books. Scanned
Film-5 2423896 (1883-1891) 27 Books. Scanned
Film-6 2423897 (1891-1898) 21 Books. Scanned
Film-7 2423898 (1898-1906) 21 Books. Scanned
Film-8 2423899 (1906-1912) 21 Books. Scanning in progress.
Film-9 2446161 (1912-1917) 20 Books. Waiting to be scanned.

Volunteers to do the scanning have been organized by Harvey Kabaker. Judy
Weinstein and I have done the scanning to date and Peter Cohen will start
scanning Film-9 shortly. Hopefully, all scanning will be completed by July
or August, 2015. Janette Silverman, the UkraineSIG Coordinator, has been
supervising the project and managing the complex flow of digital files,
proofreading, and indexing the information.

The translations have been done by Alex Kopelberg, a wonderful, generous
volunteer but the work is arduous, and understandably going slowly. If you
are able to translate old-style cursive Russian and Hebrew, are familiar
with Excel spreadsheets and would be willing to volunteer, we would love to
hear >from you!

It has been suggested that the project is large enough and there is enough
enthusiasm among the members of the UkraineSIG and Jewishgen.org that a fund
raising campaign be organized to hire professional translators to speed the
program along. If you think this is a good idea and you would like to
participate/contribute please let me (lisa.wanderman@gmail.com) know. We do
not want money now, just want to know the level of interest in this project,
should it be created.

We will continue to update the status of this project each month.

Lisa P. Wanderman
 

A huge trove of Priluki historical information is an active, ongoing project
for Ukraine SIG!

As reported both on the Jewishgen/UkraineSIG Priluki Town Page:
http://www.jewishgen.org/Ukraine/GEO_town.asp?id=407, and on the UkraineSIG
discussion group, the project to scan and translate and index the nine LDS
microfilms of Priluki records >from the years 1855-1917 began in 2013.

What are these "Vital Records?" They are record books handwritten by rabbis
in cursive Russian and Hebrew documenting all births, deaths, marriages and
divorces of the Priluki community. Each microfilm records approximately 4-30
of these books. The records, especially >from the early years, can be
extremely damaged and very difficult to read. Most records, even >from 1855,
give family names and not just patronymics. The amount of information is
enormous. There are, however, some gaps in the records, as a few books have
evidently not survived: 1880 Births, for instance, is missing.

In addition to LDS archives in Salt Lake City, all nine microfilms (listed
below) are now in the collection of the Center for Jewish History in
Manhattan.

This huge, multistep project includes the volunteer work of multiple people.
Volunteers to digitally scan the microfilms, to label each file, to upload
the files to the online database, to translate the high resolution digital
files and place the information on specific format spread sheets, to proof
the spreadsheets and process them for eventual upload to the Jewishgen.org
database. It is hundreds and hundreds, if not thousands of hours of work. It
literally takes a village to tackle and complete this project. We need your
help and request your patience.

The status of this project as of March, 2015:

Film-1 2192583 (1855-1863) 19 Books. Scanned and about 95% translated.
Film-2 2192584 (1864-1874) 23 Books. Scanned and about 60% translated.
Film-3 2423892 (1860-1875) 4 Books. Scanned
Film-4 2423895 (1875-1883) 26 Books. Scanned
Film-5 2423896 (1883-1891) 27 Books. Scanned
Film-6 2423897 (1891-1898) 21 Books. Scanned
Film-7 2423898 (1898-1906) 21 Books. Scanned
Film-8 2423899 (1906-1912) 21 Books. Scanning in progress.
Film-9 2446161 (1912-1917) 20 Books. Waiting to be scanned.

Volunteers to do the scanning have been organized by Harvey Kabaker. Judy
Weinstein and I have done the scanning to date and Peter Cohen will start
scanning Film-9 shortly. Hopefully, all scanning will be completed by July
or August, 2015. Janette Silverman, the UkraineSIG Coordinator, has been
supervising the project and managing the complex flow of digital files,
proofreading, and indexing the information.

The translations have been done by Alex Kopelberg, a wonderful, generous
volunteer but the work is arduous, and understandably going slowly. If you
are able to translate old-style cursive Russian and Hebrew, are familiar
with Excel spreadsheets and would be willing to volunteer, we would love to
hear >from you!

It has been suggested that the project is large enough and there is enough
enthusiasm among the members of the UkraineSIG and Jewishgen.org that a fund
raising campaign be organized to hire professional translators to speed the
program along. If you think this is a good idea and you would like to
participate/contribute please let me (lisa.wanderman@gmail.com) know. We do
not want money now, just want to know the level of interest in this project,
should it be created.

We will continue to update the status of this project each month.

Advice sought re possible Russian family - SCHNEER and DALBY #general

Lynne Davis
 

I am researching the family of my mother-in-law, known as Marianne DE HOWEN.
We know a lot about her father, Baron Nicholas von der Howen (of
Russian/Baltic noble origin).

Marianne's mother died when she was only 7 years old, and her father a
few years later (in France). The Baron's family were hostile towards
her mother and told Marianne almost nothing about her.

So, I am asking for some advice on where to start. I have done lots of
searches on name databases already, but the clues I have are a little
confusing.

Here's what we know:
Marianne's mother was Dora SCHNEER, born 1890. Dora married Nicholas
in Nice in France in 1920. Marianne was born in 1921. Dora died in
1928. Dora's parents were Norman SCHNEER and Micheline DALBY. We
believe they were >from Latvia, but could have been living in Russia.
We know they owned a fur factory, but not where. Dora met Nicholas in
France, after the Revolution, while she was studying medicine at the
Sorbonne. Marianne can remember her mother receiving parcels of furs
from her parents through the 1920s.
Apart >from Schneer, the names don't even sound very Eastern European.
Dalby can be English or Scandinavian, and Micheline sounds French.
Norman sounds English, but could have been anglicised >from Nachman.
My next step is to order a copy of Dora's death certificate to see if
that provides anything further.

Any advice would be most gratefully received,
