Yizkor Book Project, May 2019 #unitedkingdom

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I will start off by noting that this will probably be my last Yizkor
Book monthly report. I will be shortly stepping down as Yizkor Book
Project Manager and my place will be taken over by Binny Lewis. Having
being involved in this project >from around 1999 and leading it >from
2009, it would seem the time is ripe for me to allow someone with new
ideas and energy to take on the project. In the meantime, I will still
be around to help Binny acclimatize to the tasks involved.

I would sincerely like to thank each and every person who has
contributed in some way to the continued success of the Yizkor Book
Project. I am perpetually in awe of the willingness of people to devote
their time and energy to help out in some way to move the various
projects along. I am quite sure that Binny will continue to receive
the same level of support and dedication which will enable the project
to further grow and develop.

As a parting "gift", I am pleased to let you know that the complete
translation of the Wyzkow, Poland Yizkor book is now online. Our
grateful thanks go out to Howard Orenstein who has led this project
from its outset and has untiringly followed through with this project
to its ultimate goal.

Other than that, I would like to note that a number of new Translation
Projects have recently been setup for the books of the following
communities:

- Augustow, Poland
- Skalat, Ukaine
- Zinkiv, Ukraine

The support we need to see these books translated is, naturally,
financial and if you are able to assist in that direction with any
amount, please make your donation on our JewishGen-erosity page (link
below) to the project you wish to support.

Now, before letting you know about the updates and additions, I do wish
you and your families a Shavuot Sameach or a Happy Shavuot.

Shavuot Sameach/Happy Shavuot,

Yizkor Book Project, May 2019 #southafrica

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I will start off by noting that this will probably be my last Yizkor
Book monthly report. I will be shortly stepping down as Yizkor Book
Project Manager and my place will be taken over by Binny Lewis. Having
being involved in this project >from around 1999 and leading it >from
2009, it would seem the time is ripe for me to allow someone with new
ideas and energy to take on the project. In the meantime, I will still
be around to help Binny acclimatize to the tasks involved.

I would sincerely like to thank each and every person who has
contributed in some way to the continued success of the Yizkor Book
Project. I am perpetually in awe of the willingness of people to devote
their time and energy to help out in some way to move the various
projects along. I am quite sure that Binny will continue to receive
the same level of support and dedication which will enable the project
to further grow and develop.

As a parting "gift", I am pleased to let you know that the complete
translation of the Wyzkow, Poland Yizkor book is now online. Our
grateful thanks go out to Howard Orenstein who has led this project
from its outset and has untiringly followed through with this project
to its ultimate goal.

Other than that, I would like to note that a number of new Translation
Projects have recently been setup for the books of the following
communities:

- Augustow, Poland
- Skalat, Ukaine
- Zinkiv, Ukraine

The support we need to see these books translated is, naturally,
financial and if you are able to assist in that direction with any
amount, please make your donation on our JewishGen-erosity page (link
below) to the project you wish to support.

Now, before letting you know about the updates and additions, I do wish
you and your families a Shavuot Sameach or a Happy Shavuot.

Yizkor Book Project, May 2019 #general

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I will start off by noting that this will probably be my last Yizkor
Book monthly report. I will be shortly stepping down as Yizkor Book
Project Manager and my place will be taken over by Binny Lewis. Having
being involved in this project >from around 1999 and leading it >from
2009, it would seem the time is ripe for me to allow someone with new
ideas and energy to take on the project. In the meantime, I will still
be around to help Binny acclimatize to the tasks involved.

I would sincerely like to thank each and every person who has
contributed in some way to the continued success of the Yizkor Book
Project. I am perpetually in awe of the willingness of people to devote
their time and energy to help out in some way to move the various
projects along. I am quite sure that Binny will continue to receive
the same level of support and dedication which will enable the project
to further grow and develop.

As a parting "gift", I am pleased to let you know that the complete
translation of the Wyzkow, Poland Yizkor book is now online. Our
grateful thanks go out to Howard Orenstein who has led this project
from its outset and has untiringly followed through with this project
to its ultimate goal.

Other than that, I would like to note that a number of new Translation
Projects have recently been setup for the books of the following
communities:

- Augustow, Poland
- Skalat, Ukaine
- Zinkiv, Ukraine

The support we need to see these books translated is, naturally,
financial and if you are able to assist in that direction with any
amount, please make your donation on our JewishGen-erosity page (link
below) to the project you wish to support.

Now, before letting you know about the updates and additions, I do wish
you and your families a Shavuot Sameach or a Happy Shavuot.

Looking for members of the Shapiro Family from Vinnitsa, Chmielnik, and Kiev #ukraine

Monroe Ginsburg <monroegdmd@...>
 

I am looking for members of the SHAPIRO family. The family name may have been originally pronounced SHAPIRA, SHAPIFKA OR SHAPELFKA. David and Rivka Dziakowski (Rebecca) SHAPIRO were originally >from Chmielnik, Ukraine, then moved to Vinnitsa. Their daughter Chaike (Ida) immigrated to Chicago, Illinois, USA about 1913 and married Isaac Andelman. David and Rivka followed Chaike to Chicago in the 1930's. The children of David and Rivka were: Chaike, Pinchas, Chayim, and Fredolph. Other relatives that may be their children or other immediate family members were: Simcha, Frau Sura, Gaviant, Eheehu, and Ephraim. Chaike visited her family in the Ukraine (possibly in Kiev) in the 1970â??s, but no record of the address or town she traveled to presently exists. One of Chaike's brothers lived in Israel and another brother may have been a physician. Another brother was a general in the Soviet Army.

Here are two links for photos of the Shapiro family.
