Re: Surnames on matzevas in Lithuania #lithuania

Very few of the Matzevot have surnames, especially before WWI, though the
situation seems to be better the further west you are in Lithuania (Prussian
influence?). After WWII all the markers include surnames. It is usually very
difficult to identify specific gravestones for genealogical research during
the 19th and early 20th centuries.

2. Surnames on Matzevas in Lithuania

Dear Litvak Researchers,

I am considering a plunge into matzevah research in Lithuania. The other
day I saw a collection of digital images >from the Merkine cemetery
dating >from about 1875-1905 (most >from around 1890) and noticed
something I would like to open up for brief discussion.

In this library of images there are around 234 legible markers. To my
count, only 6 of these (2.5%) included the surname of the deceased.

The other 97.5% were typically like this: "Here rests Shimon son of
Arye. [He passed away] on the 14th of Heshvan, year 5634 (November 4
1873). May his soul rest in Eden."

So my question to those who have some experience with Lithuanian Jewish
cemeteries is this: with regard to surname inclusion, how typical is
this Merkine example of matzevah practices in Lithuania during the 19th
and early 20th centuries?

This is an important question for me to consider because if the absence
of surnames is generally widespread throughout Lithuania over these 100
or so years, that is going to make genealogical identification using
matzevas quite a bit more difficult and may affect the cost-benefit
equation of pursuing such a research strategy.

Thanks in advance for any insight.

Adam:


In the matzeva that you quote, there is no mention of the decedent's age.
If there were an age listed (as well as the year of death), you could
estimate a year of birth.

On the Trakai District Research Group (DRG) site, available to qualifying
contributors to the DRG, there are files of vital records for Merkine, which
usually include the first name, surname and father's name. Given that
information, you could try to cross-check these vital records against the
first name, father's name and estimated birth year if the matzeva includes
the age at death.

Shalom,

In general, I begin my monthly Yizkor Book Project report with writing
how impressed I am over the achievements we've managed to accomplish over
the past month. This time, however, I leave it to you to decide for
yourself about the scale of achievements we've made in both quantity and
quality in June, and I believe you'll come to the same conclusion as
myself.

Once again, I have the wonderful news to convey to you that a further
Yizkor book translation project is now entirely online. This time it is
the Chorzele, Poland Yizkor book - the "Memorial Book of the Community
of Chorzel" which was coordinated and financially supported by Susan
Huntting. We are truly indebted to her for leading the project through
to its successful completion.

As far as new projects go, we have added in three pdf files, kindly
provided by the Yizkor Book in Print Project of books they have published
through their auspices. As with all our online translations and books,
access to these are without charge but, of course, if you interested in
purchasing one of these published books, please see details of how to
obtain them in the YBIP Project page, listed at the end of this report.

We have also been fortunate in June, in receiving access to another
online book by Meir G. Gover - this time on the "Radzyner Rebbe dynasty
1840-2005". We do thank Meir for making this book available and I feel
sure will be of interest to those of you with roots in Radzyn Podlaski,
Poland.

In this past month, a number of Translation Fund projects have been set
up to obtain financial support of people with the same aim - achieving
the English translation of the Yizkor book about the community they hold
dear to their heart. As I so often note, the Yizkor books contain so much
for us in details of the communities and the people in them - details
which are unavailable in any other source.

The translation funds that have recently been setup are for the books on
Turobin, Poland and Svencionys, Lithuania and your support for any of
these funds will greatly assist in achieving the goal of completely
translating these books. I invite you to visit our JewishGen-erosity
page, listed at the end of this report, where all our Translation Funds
appear and welcome your donations, be they large or small, to see the
translations of the books become a reality.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried
out in the Yizkor Book Project in June.

New USHMM collection: Polish WWII Refugees to Mexico #general

Lande
 

In 1943 the United States provided two troop vessels to transport 1,500
Polish refugees, mostly women and children, >from India to Mexico via Los
Angeles. These refugees had fled Poland after the German invasion and had
been held in camps in the Soviet Union and then were transported via Iran to
India. At the end of the war few returned to Poland, and most scattered
around the world, including to relatives in the United States.

The database consists of names, age, profession, if any, and place of
origin in Poland. It can be searched at
https://www.ushmm.org/online/hsv/source_view.php?SourceId=46382 . You can
request a copy of the digitized document linked to each name and instantly

Yizkor Book Project, June 2018 #scandinavia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

In general, I begin my monthly Yizkor Book Project report with writing
how impressed I am over the achievements we've managed to accomplish over
the past month. This time, however, I leave it to you to decide for
yourself about the scale of achievements we've made in both quantity and
quality in June, and I believe you'll come to the same conclusion as
myself.

Once again, I have the wonderful news to convey to you that a further
Yizkor book translation project is now entirely online. This time it is
the Chorzele, Poland Yizkor book - the "Memorial Book of the Community
of Chorzel" which was coordinated and financially supported by Susan
Huntting. We are truly indebted to her for leading the project through
to its successful completion.

As far as new projects go, we have added in three pdf files, kindly
provided by the Yizkor Book in Print Project of books they have published
through their auspices. As with all our online translations and books,
access to these are without charge but, of course, if you interested in
purchasing one of these published books, please see details of how to
obtain them in the YBIP Project page, listed at the end of this report.

We have also been fortunate in June, in receiving access to another
online book by Meir G. Gover - this time on the "Radzyner Rebbe dynasty
1840-2005". We do thank Meir for making this book available and I feel
sure will be of interest to those of you with roots in Radzyn Podlaski,
Poland.

In this past month, a number of Translation Fund projects have been set
up to obtain financial support of people with the same aim - achieving
the English translation of the Yizkor book about the community they hold
dear to their heart. As I so often note, the Yizkor books contain so much
for us in details of the communities and the people in them - details
which are unavailable in any other source.

The translation funds that have recently been setup are for the books on
Turobin, Poland and Svencionys, Lithuania and your support for any of
these funds will greatly assist in achieving the goal of completely
translating these books. I invite you to visit our JewishGen-erosity
page, listed at the end of this report, where all our Translation Funds
appear and welcome your donations, be they large or small, to see the
translations of the books become a reality.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried
out in the Yizkor Book Project in June.

We have added in three new books:

- God's Sabbatical Years (The Story of Alan Weiler)
https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/SabbaticalYears/SabbaticalYears.html

- My Journey to Freedom (Kybartai to Haifa)
https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/JourneyToFreedom/JourneyToFreedom.html

- The Maple Tree Behind the Barbed Wire (A Story of Survival >from the
Czestochowa Ghetto)
https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/MapleTree/MapleTree.html


We have added in 7 new entries:

Shalom,

In general, I begin my monthly Yizkor Book Project report with writing
how impressed I am over the achievements we've managed to accomplish over
the past month. This time, however, I leave it to you to decide for
yourself about the scale of achievements we've made in both quantity and
quality in June, and I believe you'll come to the same conclusion as
myself.

Once again, I have the wonderful news to convey to you that a further
Yizkor book translation project is now entirely online. This time it is
the Chorzele, Poland Yizkor book - the "Memorial Book of the Community
of Chorzel" which was coordinated and financially supported by Susan
Huntting. We are truly indebted to her for leading the project through
to its successful completion.

As far as new projects go, we have added in three pdf files, kindly
provided by the Yizkor Book in Print Project of books they have published
through their auspices. As with all our online translations and books,
access to these are without charge but, of course, if you interested in
purchasing one of these published books, please see details of how to
obtain them in the YBIP Project page, listed at the end of this report.

We have also been fortunate in June, in receiving access to another
online book by Meir G. Gover - this time on the "Radzyner Rebbe dynasty
1840-2005". We do thank Meir for making this book available and I feel
sure will be of interest to those of you with roots in Radzyn Podlaski,
Poland.

In this past month, a number of Translation Fund projects have been set
up to obtain financial support of people with the same aim - achieving
the English translation of the Yizkor book about the community they hold
dear to their heart. As I so often note, the Yizkor books contain so much
for us in details of the communities and the people in them - details
which are unavailable in any other source.

The translation funds that have recently been setup are for the books on
Turobin, Poland and Svencionys, Lithuania and your support for any of
these funds will greatly assist in achieving the goal of completely
translating these books. I invite you to visit our JewishGen-erosity
page, listed at the end of this report, where all our Translation Funds
appear and welcome your donations, be they large or small, to see the
translations of the books become a reality.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried
out in the Yizkor Book Project in June.

We have added in three new books:

Yizkor Books #YizkorBooks Yizkor Book Project, June 2018 #yizkorbooks

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

In general, I begin my monthly Yizkor Book Project report with writing
how impressed I am over the achievements we've managed to accomplish over
the past month. This time, however, I leave it to you to decide for
yourself about the scale of achievements we've made in both quantity and
quality in June, and I believe you'll come to the same conclusion as
myself.

Once again, I have the wonderful news to convey to you that a further
Yizkor book translation project is now entirely online. This time it is
the Chorzele, Poland Yizkor book - the "Memorial Book of the Community
of Chorzel" which was coordinated and financially supported by Susan
Huntting. We are truly indebted to her for leading the project through
to its successful completion.

As far as new projects go, we have added in three pdf files, kindly
provided by the Yizkor Book in Print Project of books they have published
through their auspices. As with all our online translations and books,
access to these are without charge but, of course, if you interested in
purchasing one of these published books, please see details of how to
obtain them in the YBIP Project page, listed at the end of this report.

We have also been fortunate in June, in receiving access to another
online book by Meir G. Gover - this time on the "Radzyner Rebbe dynasty
1840-2005". We do thank Meir for making this book available and I feel
sure will be of interest to those of you with roots in Radzyn Podlaski,
Poland.

In this past month, a number of Translation Fund projects have been set
up to obtain financial support of people with the same aim - achieving
the English translation of the Yizkor book about the community they hold
dear to their heart. As I so often note, the Yizkor books contain so much
for us in details of the communities and the people in them - details
which are unavailable in any other source.

The translation funds that have recently been setup are for the books on
Turobin, Poland and Svencionys, Lithuania and your support for any of
these funds will greatly assist in achieving the goal of completely
translating these books. I invite you to visit our JewishGen-erosity
page, listed at the end of this report, where all our Translation Funds
appear and welcome your donations, be they large or small, to see the
translations of the books become a reality.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried
out in the Yizkor Book Project in June.

To the Sherlock Holmeses of genealogy: can you help? My ggm Chana Korman
sailed with two daughters >from Liverpool to Boston on the Cunard Line's
SS Pavonia, arriving June 10, 1895. I cannot, however, find her incoming
UK entry >from Europe using Ancestry's database. According to the
Liverpool>Boston manifest, her last residence had been Vienna (a fact
that appears nowhere else in my records, and which I am inclined to
doubt since the family was >from Kamenetz-Podolsk and environs, not
Galicia.) If she and her daughters really had been in Vienna, it's
possible that they traveled by rail to some port on the English Channel
and simply took a Channel steamer rather than a longer-haul passenger
vessel >from Hamburg or one of the northerly or Baltic ports. If so,
would there even be a passenger manifest? I'll welcome any research
suggestions.Thanks in advance, and Happy Fourth.
