Yizkor Book Project, August 2015 #subcarpathia

Shalom,

Here I am again letting you know a little of what has gone on in the Yizkor
Book Project over the past month. As always, new books and entries have been
added in and existing projects stride forward with many additional
translations accumulated during the past month.

To begin with, during August two projects were completed online:

Krosno, Poland (Krosno by the Wislok River) and for that we would like to
thank Bill Liebner for his donation of this compilation and to Jane W.
Aronson & Toby Bird for their careful editing of this project.
Strzyzow, Poland (The book of Strzyzow and vicinity) and this came out
thanks to the massive typing up of the book carried out by Genia Hollander &
Helen Rosenstein Wolf which allowed us to place the book online.

At the same time, the Yizkor Book in Print (YBIP) Project continues to
regularly bring out new books and this past month, the book " Pure Soldiers
or Sinister Legion" by Sol Littman has been added to the ever growing list
of published books. For more details of this book and the YBIP Project,
please see the link noted at the end of this message.

As you know, the bulk of the work within the Yizkor Book Project is carried
out by volunteers - translating, editing, typing, indexing, htmling,
scanning and more. The success of our project is definitely to their credit
and I do endeavor to note all of those who take in the Yizkor Book Project
in the volunteer list appearing at: http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ - just
one way of making sure that their contribution and our heartfelt
appreciation of their work is made known to the wider public. The list is
impressive with nearly 600 names, this does emphasize how many people do
make up the YB Project.

Before outlining the details of what was carried out during August, I would
like to take this opportunity wish all of you and your families a Shana Tova
with a hope that the new year will bring happier and more optimistic times
for ourselves and for humanity as a whole.

Re: INTRO - Researching WEIL family of Steinheim #germany

Ekkehard Huebschmann, AGfjG <info@...>
 

Dear Lucy,
there are several hints that the Steinheim of your ancestors is
Steinheim, Hoexter, Westfalen
and not Steinheim am Main, Offenbach a.M. Co., Hessen, since 1974 part
of the city of Hanau.
In the census of May 1939 I found 7 WEILs, 3 HIRSCHLAND and 1 HERZFELD
born in Steinheim, Westphelia.
For the Hessian Steinheim I couldn't find any WEIL or HIRSCHLAND.

If I were you I would start with the vital records on microfilm in a
family history center. The familysearch catalogue says the Jews of the
Westphalian Steinheim were registered by the catholics of Saint Mary,
call number 375861 (Kirchenbuch, 1621-1926, Katholische Kirche Sankt
Marien Steinheim (Kr. Hoexter)). Good luck!

Yizkor Book Project, August 2015 #romania

Shalom,

Here I am again letting you know a little of what has gone on in the Yizkor
Book Project over the past month. As always, new books and entries have been
added in and existing projects stride forward with many additional
translations accumulated during the past month.

To begin with, during August two projects were completed online:

Krosno, Poland (Krosno by the Wislok River) and for that we would like to
thank Bill Liebner for his donation of this compilation and to Jane W.
Aronson & Toby Bird for their careful editing of this project.
Strzyzow, Poland (The book of Strzyzow and vicinity) and this came out
thanks to the massive typing up of the book carried out by Genia Hollander &
Helen Rosenstein Wolf which allowed us to place the book online.

At the same time, the Yizkor Book in Print (YBIP) Project continues to
regularly bring out new books and this past month, the book " Pure Soldiers
or Sinister Legion" by Sol Littman has been added to the ever growing list
of published books. For more details of this book and the YBIP Project,
please see the link noted at the end of this message.

As you know, the bulk of the work within the Yizkor Book Project is carried
out by volunteers - translating, editing, typing, indexing, htmling,
scanning and more. The success of our project is definitely to their credit
and I do endeavor to note all of those who take in the Yizkor Book Project
in the volunteer list appearing at: http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ - just
one way of making sure that their contribution and our heartfelt
appreciation of their work is made known to the wider public. The list is
impressive with nearly 600 names, this does emphasize how many people do
make up the YB Project.

Before outlining the details of what was carried out during August, I would
like to take this opportunity wish all of you and your families a Shana Tova
with a hope that the new year will bring happier and more optimistic times
for ourselves and for humanity as a whole.

During this last month we have added in 3 new projects:

REINWASSER family in Canada #general

Aubrey Jacobus <aubrey@...>
 

I have been trying to trace the family of Deborah Reinwasser born c
1851 in Belarus ? she died in UK in 1901 .She had no relatives in Uk
and married abroard.
The name is very unusual and in 25 years only succeeded in tracing
exhaustively one large REINWASSER family in USA who originated >from
SEJNY . I have been unable to link them to Deborah.
However thanks to Ancestry access I found a brother and sister Elke and
Ruben Reinwasser who arrived together aged 21 and 18 respectively
according to ships manifest 13 Sep 1911 - Quebec, >from Antwerp.
If some genealogy sleuth more able than me can trace a descendant of
Elke and Ruben Reinwasser or their brother who preceded them to Canada I
would be eternally grateful.

Re: MALKES/MARCUS- Cleveland, Chesed Shel Emeth, The Jewish World, JD Deutsch Funeral Home #general

Mark Shapiro
 

On 3 Sep 2015, Roberta Solit asked, "Is there is an archive
for old issues of The Jewish World", a newspaper in Cleveland to
find the obituary of her grandfather, who died in 1917-1918. The
New York Public Library has issues of Idishe Velt, published in
Cleveland, for those years. It is in Yiddish.

Film from Marriage of Miss Rose Carmel and Mr Solly Gershcowit #general

Roy Star
 

It has recently come to my attention of this 'home movie' that was
shown a few weeks ago at the British Film Institute and is available
for anyone to see on Youtube. It is the marriage of my great-uncle
Solly GERSHCOWIT to Rosie CARMEL in 1925.

It starts off with the bride & groom leaving their home which was
above the family Ironmongers store at 50 Brick Lane, London,E1.
Many members of the family can be seen dancing in a garden. My mother
Sylvia STAR should be there (age 5) but I cannot see her. Also my
grandparents should be there too, but cannot be identified! The film
has been available on YouTube channel since 2009 and has received
almost 10,000 views to date -- here is the link if you want to see
the film :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_X8NtbSsOns .
The text will be updated to reflect the information on the family
that I recently gave to the BFI.

It's a lovely film and they are planning to add it to the BFI Player,
initially as part of their big Britain on Film project
(http://player.bfi.org.uk/britain-on-film/), but it will also feature
in a new Jewish Britain collection planned for 2017.
If anyone would like to give me any further information on the party
guests or comments you can contact me privately on :

Helpful research advice from the New York Public Library #general

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

One of my particular pursuits in my family research is tracking
down photos that throw light on where my ancestors lived. No
doubt, someone has may have posted this before since it's >from
July 14 but this article on "How to Find Historical Photos of
New York City" bears seeing for those who may have missed it:
http://on.nypl.org/1PPVThZ

Coming across this also reminded me how valuable - and enjoyable -
NYPL as a source of information. Their terrific map
(http://www.oldnyc.org/) shows you a street grid layout of the
city with red dots at intersections where the NYPL has historic
photos, which you can click on and see immediately. NYPL is also
the repository of digitized Yizkor books, one of which I have been
using for my translation of the Kovel Yizkor book.

So, a shout-out to NYPL. And one day I'll find that needle-in-a-
haystack: a photo that shows the storefront of 10 Delancey Street
on the Lower East Side between 1913-1919 when my grandfather had a
restaurant there.
