ZUNINO Family From Northern Italy #sephardic

Dear Genners and Siggers,

I am trying to help a friend who starts to discover his Jewish
origins. He wrote to me that:

"Zunino, coming originally >from Liguria province in Northern Italy.
They came to France in the 1920s".

I have checked JGFF with a last entry >from 2004 and one entry on
https://www.farhi.org/genealogy/index.html (les Fleurs l'Orient)
with no further details. It is also not mentioned in "Urban, Zazzu
The Jews of Genoa 1682-1799"

My only hope is that some of this list has them on his DB.

Regards >from Jerusalem

I would like to find any information about the Bard family of Spain.

Discussion Group readers:

The moderators of this group have asked that I send some reminders
to our members regarding the JewishGen requirements for sending a
message for posting to the list.

1. When responding to a post, particularly one you have received
in the Digest, do not use your Reply key to respond. This drags
the entire Digest with it and creates a difficult situation for
the Moderator. Rather, please start an entirely new message.
Include a brief reference to the message to which you are responding
so the prior message is identifiable.

2. Do not use any diacritical marks or accents. The server can not
decipher them and renders the message unreadable. If this happens,
the moderators will delete your message and ask you to resend it
without the marks. This creates extra work and delays the delivery
of your message.

3. Always sign your messages with your full name and your complete
place of residence - i.e. city, state/province and country.

4. Remember also that the message must be sent in plain text.

Thank you.

Dear Group,

In the course of my family roots research, I'm reaching out with a
kind request for information on Jewish cemeteries for the locations
of

(1) Kopychintsi
(2) Husiatyn
(3) Obertyn

Have those cemeteries been in any way preserved? destroyed?
Any descriptive information available somewhere?

Thank you

1916-1921 Lodz Registration Card Project is now complete. 230,000 entries added to JRI-Poland. #poland #lodz

Margalit Ashira Ir
 

Dear fellow researchers:

More than three years ago we embarked on a project to extract and
create a database of the Jewish entries in the huge collection of Lodz
Registration Cards >from 1916 to 1921.
https://jri-poland.org/psa/lodz-registration-card-scans.htm

Like any large initiative, it was difficult to initially grasp the
depth of this project and the time it might take to complete. But we
soon learned that there are more than 262 thousand cards to be
reviewed and, of course, knew that a large percentage would be for
Jewish families. It was clear that to carry out this project would
require many years of engaging with and retaining volunteers.

We soon were able to assemble what turned out to be a dedicated team
of our fellow genealogists who took this project to heart. They
realized that the information in these cards would open vital research
opportunities with the potential for dramatic breakthroughs.

Our volunteers reviewed each card to identify the Jewish families and
then extract the key genealogical information - surnames, given names,
parents' names, towns of birth, birth date, occupation, marital
status, date of arrival in Lodz, and in some cases, dates of death.

While we had a core group who drove the project forward, along the way
we were joined by dozens of other volunteers doing their share. It
was truly an international group representing the U.S. Israel, Canada,
Spain, France, Belgium, Russia and Argentina. We also had a
Kenya-based company, Digital Divide, volunteer the time of one of
their expert employees.

Some volunteers were with us >from beginning to end, others offered
their help in between business hours, care giving or simply involved
in their families' day-to-day lives. Each day I could visualize
their activity on this project, the hours at their computers, diligently
reading through and documenting the names of our Jewish brethren.
Their devotion was a heartwarming example of the power of a united
force carrying out a unique mission. In this case ensuring that all
Jewish names in this collection became new stars in the heavens, their
memory forever ingrained on the web for future generations of their
families to find and treasure.

In fact, I have heard >from countless researchers who have found family
members, often learning about cousins and even entire branches they
never knew existed.

I would also like to extend a special and heartfelt thanks to
JRI-Poland super volunteer Howard Fink who has played such a vital
role in processing the data and preparing it to be uploaded to the
JRI-Poland database.

The Lodz Registration Card Project is now complete and the data is
online. Along the way, we reviewed 262,000 cards and identified more
than 230,000 Jewish individuals. They are now forever part of the
database of Jewish Records of Poland, available for all to find.

As the leader of the Lodz Registration Card 1916-1921 Extraction
Project, I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to bring this
mission to fruition and once again express my heartfelt thanks to the
volunteers who made this long journey a success. Yasher Koach to each
and every one of the volunteers.
