Yizkor Book Report for December 2008 #warsaw #poland

Joyce Field
 

During the month of December 2008 the Yizkor Book Translation Project
added two new books, two new entries, and six updates. All
additions have been flagged at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html>.

New books:
-Bender, Moldova
-Glinyany, Ukraine, <http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Glinyany2/Glinyany2.html>

New entries:
-Kolki, Ukraine, Pinkas HaKehillot, POLIN, vol. V
-Stod, Czech Republic

Updates:

-Bedzin, Poland
-Czestochowa, Poland
-Czyzew, Poland
-Dabrowa Gornicza, Poland
-Lita
-Nowy Sacz, Poland

This is the last yizkor book monthly report that I will be writing as
I am leaving JewishGen at the end of this month. It is impossible for
me to describe how much I have enjoyed seeing this project grow and
prosper in the past decade. None of this success could have been
possible without the dedication of all the donors,translators, and
project coordinators who have contributed their talents to this
project and without the tireless devotion of the staff of this
project--Lance Ackerfeld, Israel; Osnat Ramaty, Germany; Max Heffler,
U.S. Our stated goal was by translating these books into English to
unlock the valuable information contained in yizkor books so that
genealogists and others can learn more about their heritage. We have,
I believe, succeeded in the past ten years but there is still much to
be done. My best wishes to all for your future successes.

JOWBR update #warsaw #poland

Joyce Field
 

JewishGen is pleased to announce an update to its burial registry,
JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry (JOWBR). Approximately
50,000 burial records and 25,000 new photos of matzevot have been
added. At
<http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm> there
is a complete listing of the 2,033 cemeteries and plots in the
searchable database, comprising 1,074,427 records.

Noteworty additions to the database are:

-Basavilbaso, Argentina: 1,653 records
-Iasi, Romania: 18,000 new records
-Petach Tikvah/Segulah Cemetery, Israel: 2,900 additional records and
6,100 photos
-Toronto, Canada: updates and additions of photos to 60 Toronto cemeteries
-Southwest and Midwest U.S. cemeteries: 4,700 new records and 8,700 photos
-Pennsylvania cemeteries: 4,700 new records
-Alabama and Mississippi cemeteries: 1,500 records >from 13 cemeteries
in these two states
-Indianapolis, Indiana: an additional 2,100 records and 1,800 photos
-Bayside cemeteries, N.Y.: first installment of 1,100 records

The searchable database contains over 432,000 records for the United
States, over 133,000 records for Canada, over 46,000 records for
Romania,over 106,000 records for Israel, over 29,000 records foe
England, and almost 29,000 records for Poland. As can be seen,
donations of many more burial records are needed for JOWBR to reach
the 2 million mark!

Please contact Nolan Altman at <nta@pipeline.com> to find out how you
can help JOWBR grow.

Best wishes for the new year.

searching for Cooper/Kuper clan from Lita #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

<< From: Avigdor Ben-Dov <a.bendov@yahoo.com>
I have run into a blind alley tracking the COOPERS >from Kovno (Kaunus)
region. What to do? Rav Pinchas Karpil Kuper or Cooper (name of record in
USA), my wife's paternal gfather, was born about 1871 and died in Chicago,
IL in 1941. >>

As you stated, COOPER is a very common name in England and the USA but I do
not think it existed in Lithuania. KUPER or some variation is more likely
and that was not a common name in Lithuania. Your problem appears to be you
do not know the exact town or village in the Kaunas region where your KUPER
ancestors originated. Without that information, your search is like
looking for a needle in a haystack.

The ship manifest, or naturalization papers for Pinchas Karpil Kuper may
provide a clue as to where he was born.

The searchable database contains over 432,000 records for the United
States, over 133,000 records for Canada, over 46,000 records for
Romania,over 106,000 records for Israel, over 29,000 records foe
England, and almost 29,000 records for Poland. As can be seen,
donations of many more burial records are needed for JOWBR to reach
the 2 million mark!

can help JOWBR grow.

Best wishes for the new year.

We are pleased to welcome the following webpages to JewishGen

lived in those shtetlach and for providing a valuable resource for
future generations of their descendants.

Some of our shtetlpages were created by people who are no longer able
to maintain them.
We thank them for their past efforts and wish them luck on their
future endeavors.
We are happy to announce that one of these shtetlach were recently "adopted" :

If you wish to follow their example and create a ShtetLinks webpage
for your ancestral shtetl or adopt an exiting "orphaned" shtetlpage
please contact us at: < shtetl-help@jewishgen.org >

GOOD NEWS!! As a result for our appeal for HTML volunteers we now have
a team of dedicated people who will help you create a webpage for
your ancestral home.

but there are discrepancies with ages
There almost always are discrepancies with ages in these records. My
grandparents were >from Lithuania and their ages are all over the map >from
record to record. It was not as important to them as it is to us - no
Social Security or Medicare eligibility at 65 so once someone was past bar/
bas mitzvah they really didn't pay much attention to age. Even here in the
U.S., one woman in my family aged only seven years every 10 year census
cycle :).
