The saga of another JRI-Poland used laptop! #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

Dear friends:

Last August, I posted a message about the travels of donated
laptops to Poland for JRI-Poland indexing projects. I don't recall
ever receiving as much private mail in response to any previous
post. On top of that, the post led to the donation of a few more
laptops <grin>.

I would like share the saga of another laptop with you. This one
gives me great pleasure because - although the laptop will have
moved about 7000 miles in a number of legs - the cost of getting
it to Poland was $0.

Here's the story:

* It was donated by a man in Palo Alto, CA
* Delivered by him to my daughter in Alameda, CA
* Carried by my daughter to Durham, NH (where our entire family
was celebrating another daughter's graduation >from the
University of New Hampshire.
* Transported back to Montreal.
* Overhauled and needed software added in Montreal.
* Handed to a Montreal Jewish woman of Polish origin who
makes 1 to 2 trips each year to Poland.
* Picked up by the JRI-Poland representative in Warsaw.

And this all happened in about three weeks!

The lesson
~~~~~~~~~
When you donate a used laptop to JRI-Poland, we will find a way
to ship it to Poland where it will be put to good use.

The minimum specs
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Pentium 1
4 GB hard drive
CD Rom drive
Windows 98 (2000 or XP would be wonderful)
The necessary software will be added by JRI-Poland.
External mouse (if available)
Carrying case appreciated, if available.

In accordance with US IRS regulations and JRI-Poland's 501(c)(3)
status, the donation of such equipment is tax deductible at the current
market value.

Yizkor Book Monthly Report for May 2006 #yizkorbooks

Joyce Field
 

May 2006 has been a very busy one for the Yizkor Book Project. We
have one new online "book" (really, a collection of original essays),
four new books started, seven new entries, and 12 updates. All
yizkor book material is available at the Index page at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html. If you are not
familiar with this site, notice at the top of the page, just under
the JewishGen logo, is a list of sites you can access directly by
clicking on the name--for example, Database, Necrology Index, or
Infofiles. There is a wealth of information directly accessible >from
this one page with just a click. Also note that the yizkor material
is listed under four different categories. New material is flagged
for easy identification.

This month we have begun a new online collection, called "The
Terrible Choice: Some Contemporary Jewish Responses to the
Holocaust," at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/terrible_choice/terrible_choice.html
. Melvyn Conroy, the author, writes: "This collection of brief
essays is an attempt to portray the character and personality of a
number of the prominent Jews of occupied Europe, and the manner in
which they responded to the unique circumstances of the Shoah."
Thus far, we have eight essays online.

New books:

-Biecz, Poland
-Indura, Belarus
-Klobuck, Poland
-Transylvania, Hungary:
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Transylvania/Transylvania.html.
Listed under Regions

New entries: Pinkas HaKehillot

-Druskininkai, Lith: Poland, vol. VIII
-Gdansk, Poland: Poland, vol. VI
-Krosno, Poland: Poland, vol. III
-Novogrudok, Belarus: Poland, vol. VIII
-Nowy Zmigrod, Poland: Poland, vol. III
-Ostrog, Ukraine: Poland, vol. V
-Polanka, Poland: Poland, vol. VIII

Updates:

-Braslaw, Belarus
-Dabrowa, Poland
-Dembitz, Poland (Polish translation)
-Gabin, Poland
-Kalusz, Ukraine
-Kolbuszowa, Poland
-Lanovtsy, Ukraine
-Nowy Sacz, Poland
-Nowy Targ, Poland
-Shumskoye, Ukraine
-Stepan, Ukraine
-Zloczew, Poland

Frequently I remind our readers that a number of yizkor books are
being translated by professional translators. The list is at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23.
You can make a needed donation to these books and to JewishGen at
this site. Remember that JewishGen provides all the infrastructure
to make the Yizkor Book Project available to everyone at no cost, but
there is a cost to providing this material online and we hope that
our readers will generously support JewishGen, making their
appreciation known in this way.

At this time i want to thank once again our wonderful "international"
Yizkor Book Project volunteers who so efficiently get the
translations online: Lance Ackerfeld (Israel), Max Heffler (U.S.),
and Osnat Ramaty (Germany). They are a remarkable team. And to all
the people who donate their translations week after week, month after
month, we send our appreciation for their generosity and talent.

Nationwide Gedenkbuch Research #germany

Yes I was wondering if anyone new if there was a central online repository
for Gedenkbuch information or maybe online resources I could employ?

I have been trying to find my Great-Grandfather's birthplace in Germany for years.
This has been extremely difficult to do so since even his draft card
and naturalization papers left that information blank. Thanks in advance all,
