Bessarabia SIG Updates for the month of May, 2015 #general

Yefim Kogan
 

Dear researchers,

Shavua Tov!

Here is an update for the month of May 2015 for Bessarabia SIG.
See the details at the "What's New" section of our site.

Bessarabian Databases. New additions:
The data for the new database "Jews involved in public life in Bessarabia"
was send to JewishGen and will be available at regular search at JewishGen /
Romania(Bessarabia) databases. You will be able to find Jews involved in
public life in Bessarabia; who held government position or was part of large
Jewish organizations, like Jewish hospitals, Jewish schools. It will also
include crown rabbis at the synagogues for many Bessarabian towns.
For now, you can see that data at the Bessarabia SIG website / Bessarabian
Databases section.

Genealogical Conferences.
There was a change in a schedule for Bessarabian presentations:

Please see the schedule of all Bessarabian sessions with abstracts for each
session.

At the Bessarabia SIG Luncheon Anastasia Moscaliuk could not attend the
conference, and the Bessarabian Board suggested to have a following
presentation: "Kishinev, my native town: Can we now visit Kishinev and find
help in our genealogical research?" by Yefim Kogan. You can see an
abstract of that presentation at the conference website or at Bessarabia SIG
website.

There is a very good progress in several Cemetery projects. The update for
Cemetery projects will follow.

Send your comments, suggestions, critique, new ideas, proposals of how to
make our Bessarabia group better.

HARSUNAN? #general

I am really stumped! My pgg's name was Miriam Harsunan who married a Louis
Rilen (not likely his "real" surname). They lived in Gomel (Homel??). I have
looked up Harsunan and I'm finding it in the "Hausa" language. I think it's
African in origin. This doesn't sound right-or does it? I would appreciate
anyone's imput on this.

Yizkor Book Project, May 2015 #romania

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I won't be making an unheard of fact in saying that if you put in effort,
time and persist to realize a particular goal, in the end there's a good
chance that you'll achieve it. The reason that I bring this up is that in
the past month the Yizkor books in Print (YBIP) Project saw the publishing
of the "Memorial Book of the Molchad (Maytchet) Jewish Community", the
translation of which was coordinated by Myrna Siegel over many years.
Several months ago we saw the completion of the translation through the
effort, time and persistence Myrna put into this project and she must be
admired for seeing the project to its successful culmination and enabling us
to make this book available to all of the people with roots in Molchad
(Maytchet).

Other news this past month is that we were presented with the "The Mahler
Family" book to be placed online with the published version also available
through our YBIP Project - see: http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html .
The book was authored by Dr. Robin O'Neil who is a former police major
crimes investigator. Through his particular background in criminal
investigation, he has extensively researched the Nazi war crimes and we have
been fortunate in that he has generously donated quite a number of his books
to the Yizkor Book Project over the years and which make extremely
enlightening reading.

The Yizkor Book Project continues each month to add in new projects and
build on the projects that have been setup previously and we will continue
to do so as long as we have your support. The Yizkor Book Project exists due
to generous donors and the untiring assistance of many volunteers. If you
feel able to assist in any field related to the project as a volunteer,
please feel free to contact me. We are currently on the lookout for
volunteer editors who are capable of proofreading prepared translations but
doesn't necessitate knowing Hebrew or Yiddish. If you are able to assist in
this field, I'd certainly be pleased to hear >from you.

Shalom,

I won't be making an unheard of fact in saying that if you put in effort,
time and persist to realize a particular goal, in the end there's a good
chance that you'll achieve it. The reason that I bring this up is that in
the past month the Yizkor books in Print (YBIP) Project saw the publishing
of the "Memorial Book of the Molchad (Maytchet) Jewish Community", the
translation of which was coordinated by Myrna Siegel over many years.
Several months ago we saw the completion of the translation through the
effort, time and persistence Myrna put into this project and she must be
admired for seeing the project to its successful culmination and enabling us
to make this book available to all of the people with roots in Molchad
(Maytchet).

Other news this past month is that we were presented with the "The Mahler
Family" book to be placed online with the published version also available
through our YBIP Project - see: http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html .
The book was authored by Dr. Robin O'Neil who is a former police major
crimes investigator. Through his particular background in criminal
investigation, he has extensively researched the Nazi war crimes and we have
been fortunate in that he has generously donated quite a number of his books
to the Yizkor Book Project over the years and which make extremely
enlightening reading.

The Yizkor Book Project continues each month to add in new projects and
build on the projects that have been setup previously and we will continue
to do so as long as we have your support. The Yizkor Book Project exists due
to generous donors and the untiring assistance of many volunteers. If you
feel able to assist in any field related to the project as a volunteer,
please feel free to contact me. We are currently on the lookout for
volunteer editors who are capable of proofreading prepared translations but
doesn't necessitate knowing Hebrew or Yiddish. If you are able to assist in
this field, I'd certainly be pleased to hear >from you.

Yizkor Book Project, May 2015 #lithuania

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I won't be stating an unheard of fact in saying that if you put in effort,
time and persist to realize a particular goal, in the end there's a good
chance that you'll achieve it. The reason that I bring this up is that in
the past month the Yizkor books in Print (YBIP) Project saw the publishing
of the "Memorial Book of the Molchad (Maytchet) Jewish Community", the
translation of which was coordinated by Myrna Siegel over many years.
Several months ago we saw the completion of the translation through the
effort, time and persistence Myrna put into this project and she must be
admired for seeing the project to its successful culmination and enabling us
to make this book available to all of the people with roots in Molchad
(Maytchet).

Other news this past month is that we were presented with the "The Mahler
Family" book to be placed online with the published version also available
through our YBIP Project - see: http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html .
The book was authored by Dr. Robin O'Neil who is a former police major
crimes investigator. Through his particular background in criminal
investigation, he has extensively researched the Nazi war crimes and we have
been fortunate in that he has generously donated quite a number of his books
to the Yizkor Book Project over the years and which make extremely
enlightening reading.

The Yizkor Book Project continues each month to add in new projects and
build on the projects that have been setup previously and we will continue
to do so as long as we have your support. The Yizkor Book Project exists due
to generous donors and the untiring assistance of many volunteers. If you
feel able to assist in any field related to the project as a volunteer,
please feel free to contact me. We are currently on the lookout for
volunteer editors who are capable of proofreading prepared translations but
doesn't necessitate knowing Hebrew or Yiddish. If you are able to assist in
this field, I'd certainly be pleased to hear >from you.

Now to facts and figures for May.

During this last month we have added in 5 new projects:

- Bacau, Romania (The community of Bacau)
