Mark Halpern receives IAJGS Lifetime Achievement Award #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

On behalf of the Executive Committee and Board of Jewish
Records Indexing - Poland and all JRI-Poland volunteers, it is
with sincere pleasure we extend heartiest congratulations to
our colleague and friend, Mark Halpern on receiving the 2018
Lifetime Achievement Award of the International Association
of Jewish Genealogical Societies.

Mark has been been an integral part of JRI-Poland leadership
for almost twenty years as a member of the JRI-Poland executive
committee and board. He has played in indispensable role as
Coordinator of the AGAD and Bialystok Archives Projects and
the JRI-Poland online order system.

In addition, Mark was president of the JGS of Philadelphia from
2003 to 2007, following which he became editor of Chronicles,
the JGS of Philadelphia journal. In 2009, Mark was Co-Chair of
the IAJGS conference in Philadelphia and Program Chair of the 2013
conference in Boston. He has filled every role with dedication,
wisdom and tireless effort.

It is certainly fitting that Mark was presented with the award in
Warsaw given his decades long leadership and contributions to
the indexing of the Jewish records of Poland as part of the
JRI-Poland team.

In recognizing and honoring Mark's lifetime of achievement, the
IAJGS has selected a most deserving member of the Jewish
genealogical community. We are beyond proud of Mark.

Polish Business Directory - Bondanowicz #poland

Sylvia Caras
 

My grandfather's immigration records have a last name: Badanovitz
He changed the name to Bond.

The last two line on the Nowogrodek 1929 Business Directory have
the spelling Bondanowicz. That's the first time I have seen that
spelling (I have so far a list of 15 variations). Now I'm wondering
if that could actually be family! People who did not emigrate.

Town: Wasiliszki
District: Lida
Name: Bondanowicz, Marja
Notes: Sasowszczyzna 140
Name: Bondanowicz, Joz.
Notes: Hlinkowszczyzna 55

What do the listings in the Notes column mean? Sasowszczyzna 140 and
Hlinkowszczyzna 55

I'd like to have a link to the original record. I am unable to post a
link to the record transcription. If one uses the new universal
search the record appears.

Re: Town in Ukraine - Karloveke? #general

Thanks to everyone who responded to my query about a town named Karlovke in
Ukraine. The first respondent, Vladimir Oksman, suggested that I do a Google
search in Russian, which brought me the results that I needed.

Does anyone know the origin of the Yiddish name "Tzesha" for a woman ?
What would be the meaning to this name? Its Hebrew equivalent?

Request for Translation of Tombstone from Bendery Jewish Cemetery #bessarabia

Pete Tanner <peterdt@...>
 

Hello,

I am hoping to gain a full translation of the Russian on this
tombstone >from the Bendery Jewish Cemetery. I have recently gained
information that leads me to believe that those mentioned on this
tombstone (apparently more than one person) are part of my family from
this town. Any help with the translation would be appreciated.
