Re: New York Public Library advice #general

Bob Fitterman
 

They have death indexes for the entire city, year by year except for
one year in the 1960's. This can be very useful for locating dates of
death and therefore possibly death certificates. After about 1930
these include records for stillbirths, although they are segregated in
a separate section of the publication. The older volumes are on
microfilm, but print editions after about 1960. It ends some time in
the 1980's or 90's.

It's a great resource for locating deaths that are not covered by the
Social Security death index and occurred in New York City. I've never
seen this information anywhere else. It's a shame no one has digitized
this resource.

Yizkor Book Project, October 2015 #ciechanow #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

As always, there is quite a lot to tell you about the activities of the
Yizkor Book Project over the past month. To begin with, no less than three
books were published by our very own Yizkor Books in Print (YBIP) Project
and they are:

- "Memorial Book of Bolekhov " (Bolekhiv, Ukraine)
- "Rokitno-Wolyn and Surroundings; Memorial Book and Testimony" (Rokytne,
Ukraine)
- "The 51st Brigade; The History of the Jewish Partisan Group >from the
Slonim Ghetto (Slonim, Belarus)

To say that this is a remarkable achievement is a definite understatement
and I do sincerely thank Joel Alpert and his dedicated volunteer team for
preparing these and a grand total of 42 books that have already been brought
to print. Please be aware that apart >from these books being printed as hard
copies, the books themselves are still freely available in the Yizkor Book
site, including English books that were presented to us to be published. For
instance, the "51st Brigade" book noted above is also listed and available
in the Yizkor Book Index: http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html

More and more are people realizing that to facilitate the translation of a
particular Yizkor Book, the recommended way is to set up a JewishGen
Translations Fund to pay for the professional translation of the book. The
fund enables those people interested in the book >from a particular
community to donate towards the common goal of having it translated and for
US citizens, the donations to JewishGen are tax deductible.

During October, a further new Translations Fund was set up for the Biala
Podlaska (Poland) Yizkor Book and I do invite people with connections to
this community or any of the other community book listed in our
JewishGen-erosity
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
to help support these important projects financially for the benefit of
many, now and for generations to come.

And now for the changes and additions that were carried out in the Yizkor
Book Project over October.

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

- Davyd-Haradok, Belarus (David Horodoker Memorial book)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Davyd-Haradok/Davyd-Haradok.html

- Pure Soldiers or Sinister Legion
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Pure_Soldiers/Pure_Soldiers.html

- Slonim, Belarus (The 51st Brigade: The History of the Jewish Partisan
Group >from the Slonim Ghetto)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Slonim1/Slonim1.html

We have continued to updated 26 of our existing projects:

- Biala Podlaska, Poland (Book of Biala Podlaska)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Biala_Podlaska/Biala_Podlaska.html

- Busk, Ukraine (An Eternal Light: Brody in Memoriam)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/busk/busk.html

- Capresti, Moldova (Kapresht, our village; memorial book for the Jewish
community of Kapresht, Bessarabia)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Capresti/Capresti.html

- Czestochowa, Poland (The Jews of Czestochowa)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Czestochowa1/Czestochowa1.html

- Golshany (Olshan), Belarus (The Life and Destruction of Olshan)
