Shalom,

After a prolonged period in which our Yizkor Books Main Name Index (YBMNI)
has been left "orphaned", Linda Richman has kindly taken the helm as
project coordinator and I'm pleased to inform you that last month quite a
few thousand entries were added to this index which now includes more than
90,000 records. For those of you unfamiliar with the YBNMNI, it was set up
as a researchers to find where particular family names appear in the various
Yizkor books. As you can imagine, a great deal of painstaking work is
required to extract the names >from the translations, setup them up in lists
and pass them on to be uploaded to the YBMNI database. If you would be
interested in joining the team carrying this out, I would be very glad to
hear >from you. In the meantime, you can check the index out for yourself at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Yizkor/Names/

Apart >from this index, I would like to remind you that we also have the
necrology index which contains the names appearing in the various Yizkor
book necrologies - another invaluable research tool. This particular project
is led by the indefatigable Max Heffler and contains more than 345,000
entries, is regularly updated and can be found at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/

In both these projects, the hard and finicky work of volunteers is what
allows us to make these indexes available. Over the years there have been
around 600 volunteers involved in these projects and in the Yizkor Book
Project, in general, and we do like to recognize their contribution by
listing them in our list of volunteers:

http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/

We have made every effort to make sure all the volunteers are listed and if,
for some unknown reason, you have volunteered but you aren't listed, please
let me know. In the meantime, dear volunteers - thank you for all you do!

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

During this last month we have added in 2 new books:

So many of our immigrant ancestors lived in New York City...they
started on the Lower East Side and upgraded to the Bronx, Brooklyn
and surrounds.

Sure we have the census >from Ancestry and FamilySearch and vital
records >from ItalianGen, but this class will focus on the more
esoteric documents our ancestors generated ...naturalization, probate,
landsmanshaften, voters registration, newspapers, court cases. This
will be useful to those who want to find that missing branch, visit or
contact NY Archives. We will have suggestions on where to research,
where to wander and how to get there..and we'll schedule a field trip
to selected archives.

This is an intermediate/advanced level genealogy course with 8 text
lessons you can download; there are no specific times for the course
as students are international. We feature a unique personal mentoring
program where students select a branch to research and work one-on-one
with the instructor. Students should have 8-10 hours per week to read
the lessons, search online and interact with the instructor.

The tuition is $125. Registration is open. Enrollment is limited.
Please...review the details under the New York course description at

has been left "orphaned", Linda Richman has kindly taken the helm as
project coordinator and I'm pleased to inform you that last month quite a
few thousand entries were added to this index which now includes more than
90,000 records. For those of you unfamiliar with the YBNMNI, it was set up
as a researchers to find where particular family names appear in the various
Yizkor books. As you can imagine, a great deal of painstaking work is
required to extract the names >from the translations, setup them up in lists
and pass them on to be uploaded to the YBMNI database. If you would be
interested in joining the team carrying this out, I would be very glad to
hear >from you. In the meantime, you can check the index out for yourself at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Yizkor/Names/

Apart >from this index, I would like to remind you that we also have the
necrology index which contains the names appearing in the various Yizkor
book necrologies - another invaluable research tool. This particular project
is led by the indefatigable Max Heffler and contains more than 345,000
entries, is regularly updated and can be found at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/

In both these projects, the hard and finicky work of volunteers is what
allows us to make these indexes available. Over the years there have been
around 600 volunteers involved in these projects and in the Yizkor Book
Project, in general, and we do like to recognize their contribution by
listing them in our list of volunteers:

http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/

We have made every effort to make sure all the volunteers are listed and if,
for some unknown reason, you have volunteered but you aren't listed, please
let me know. In the meantime, dear volunteers - thank you for all you do!

New York Jewish Genealogy Course begins June 27 #ukraine

Phyllis Kramer
 

So many of our immigrant ancestors lived in New York City...they
started on the Lower East Side and upgraded to the Bronx, Brooklyn
and surrounds.

Sure we have the census >from Ancestry and FamilySearch and vital
records >from ItalianGen, but this class will focus on the more
esoteric documents our ancestors generated ...naturalization, probate,
landsmanshaften, voters registration, newspapers, court cases. This
will be useful to those who want to find that missing branch, visit or
contact NY Archives. We will have suggestions on where to research,
where to wander and how to get there..and we'll schedule a field trip
to selected archives.

This is an intermediate/advanced level genealogy course with 8 text
lessons you can download; there are no specific times for the course
as students are international. We feature a unique personal mentoring
program where students select a branch to research and work one-on-one
with the instructor. Students should have 8-10 hours per week to read
the lessons, search online and interact with the instructor.

The tuition is $125. Registration is open. Enrollment is limited.
Please...review the details under the New York course description at
www.jewishgen.org/education; and enroll on the same page.

Request for transliteration/translation in French of just a few words #france

Jeff Lewy <airbair@...>
 

I have posted a marriage certificate >from Greunstadt, Rheinland for
1807, written in French during the Napoleonic period. I need help
only for a few words, as the writing is quite clear.

It is image #47885, at the following address:
<http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=47885>


1. At the first yellow highlight, I believe the word is "nous," as
"nous ayante ete signifie" despite the upward stroke in the word. Is
this correct?

2. I cannot decipher the occupation of Michel Salomon, in the
descriptions of the witnesses to the marriage.

3. In the third to last line of the section of those being married,
to the left of the seal, I think the mother of the bride is shown as
Sprinz Lesemann Schaya. Is the name "Schaya" the best choice?

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Thank you very much / merci beaucoup.

Re: town name Vnikov #general

John Berkeley posted: A 1946 application for a Czech passport/traveldocuments gives
birthplace (rodiste)as Vnikov. None of the usual sources I've tried recognises this
place name. Can anyone please help?

As we all are familiar with, the map of eastern europe changed radically in the
19th and 20th centuries. Another interesting tidbit is that kov means metal in
Czech, and many towns include it, as the area is still known for its steel.

so i looked on the gazetteer and community pages and found:

Vitkovice, now in the Czech Republic at 4949/1816...
170 mi E of Praha (prague) which I think is the most likely candidate...it had a
Jewish population even when it was part of Moravia and Austria before WWI...

Happy Hunting!

John Berkeley posted: A 1946 application for a Czech passport/traveldocuments gives
birthplace (rodiste)as Vnikov. None of the usual sources I've tried recognises this
place name. Can anyone please help?

As we all are familiar with, the map of eastern europe changed radically in the
19th and 20th centuries. Another interesting tidbit is that kov means metal in
Czech, and many towns include it, as the area is still known for its steel.

Finding a relative in Israel #general

Zena Hitz
 

My grandmother was in touch with her cousin Hanna Spivak, who lived in the Beit Avot
in Ramat-Effal until her death in 1993. I am trying to reach her daughter Keren /
Karen, but I don't know her last name. I have tried calling the Beit Avot to no
avail, and I believe that I can't have access to the death certificate unless I am a
member of her immediate family. I would be grateful for advice in how
to find my relative, either >from Israel or >from the US.
