Yizkor Book Project, December, 2014 #lithuania

Shalom,

It would seem appropriate at this time of the year to look back
and somehow summarize the activities of the Yizkor Book Project
during 2014 . In a few words, then, I would like to note that at
the end of the past there were:

- Over 800 projects online, of which, 40 which were added this
past year.
- Nearly 2,000 entries online, of which, 32 which were added this
past year. Entries, by-the-way, refer to chapters on particular
communities that have been added. For instance, any article on a
community appearing in the Pinkas Hakehillot (Encyclopedia of
Jewish Communities) that is added, is counted as an "entry".
- We now have just over a 100 books that now appear online in
their entirety, quite a number of which were completed in 2014.
- 9 new printed translations published over the past year by Joel
Alpert and his dedicated team. In the past month, "The Memorial
Book of Serock" was added to the available list of books and rumor
has it that a number of other books will soon be added - more next
report.

Whilst I do think these figures are impressive, it's clear that a
lot of work is still ahead of us. As such, we do appreciate any
assistance to the projects that you can give financially-wise or
in volunteer work. As always, I would like to point out that these
translations shed a great deal of light on the communities and
people annihilated in the Holocaust and are to the benefit of so
many of us around the world.

Now to facts and figures for December.

ViewMate translation request - Polish SZUMACHER and ARMLAND #poland

Scott Fischthal <fischthal1@...>
 

I've posted two vital records in Polish for which I need a translation.
They are on ViewMate at the following addresses:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM37336
Marriage record for Hersz Szumacher and Ruchel Armland, recorded in 1890
in Przasnysz. I'd like the parents' (and any other relatives') names, the
precise full date, and any pertinent information about the marriage and
the bride and groom (e.g., ages, occupation)

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM37339
Birth record for Hersz Chaim Szumacher recorded in 1870. I believe
this confirms the parents' names are Noach Szumacher and Frieda Siegel,
but I'd like to be sure of that, whether there are grandparents' names, and
the precise full date of birth.

In both cases, a complete translation would be appreciated if at all
possible. These are both newly posted images >from the December
JRI-Poland update. A huge thank you to all the volunteers who made this
update possible. I'm used to the form-style images linked in the Czortkow
files, so this is new territory for me and overwhelms my extremely limited
Polish and German vocabulary.

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.
Thank you so very much for your help!

Yizkor Book Project, November 2014 #bessarabia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

It would seem appropriate at this time of the year to look back
and somehow summarize the activities of the Yizkor Book Project
during 2014 . In a few words, then, I would like to note that at
the end of the past there were:

- Over 800 projects online, of which, 40 which were added this
past year.
- Nearly 2,000 entries online, of which, 32 which were added this
past year. Entries, by-the-way, refer to chapters on particular
communities that have been added. For instance, any article on a
community appearing in the Pinkas Hakehillot (Encyclopedia of
Jewish Communities) that is added, is counted as an "entry".
- We now have just over a 100 books that now appear online in
their entirety, quite a number of which were completed in 2014.
- 9 new printed translations published over the past year by Joel
Alpert and his dedicated team. In the past month, "The Memorial
Book of Serock" was added to the available list of books and rumor
has it that a number of other books will soon be added - more next
report.

Whilst I do think these figures are impressive, it's clear that a
lot of work is still ahead of us. As such, we do appreciate any
assistance to the projects that you can give financially-wise or
in volunteer work. As always, I would like to point out that these
translations shed a great deal of light on the communities and
people annihilated in the Holocaust and are to the benefit of so
many of us around the world.

Now to facts and figures for December.

During this last month we have added in a new project:

- Gyongyos, Hungary
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Gyongyos/Gyongyos.html

Added a new entry:

- Levice, Slovakia (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Slovakia)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/pinkas_slovakia/slo293.html

We have continued to update 27 of our existing projects:

- Belki, Ukraine (The Bilker Memorial Book)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/belki/belki.html

- Czestochowa, Poland (The Jews of Czestochowa)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Czestochowa1/Czestochowa1.html

Shalom,

It would seem appropriate at this time of the year to look back
and somehow summarize the activities of the Yizkor Book Project
during 2014 . In a few words, then, I would like to note that at
the end of the past there were:

- Over 800 projects online, of which, 40 which were added this
past year.
- Nearly 2,000 entries online, of which, 32 which were added this
past year. Entries, by-the-way, refer to chapters on particular
communities that have been added. For instance, any article on a
community appearing in the Pinkas Hakehillot (Encyclopedia of
Jewish Communities) that is added, is counted as an "entry".
- We now have just over a 100 books that now appear online in
their entirety, quite a number of which were completed in 2014.
- 9 new printed translations published over the past year by Joel
Alpert and his dedicated team. In the past month, "The Memorial
Book of Serock" was added to the available list of books and rumor
has it that a number of other books will soon be added - more next
report.

Whilst I do think these figures are impressive, it's clear that a
lot of work is still ahead of us. As such, we do appreciate any
assistance to the projects that you can give financially-wise or
in volunteer work. As always, I would like to point out that these
translations shed a great deal of light on the communities and
people annihilated in the Holocaust and are to the benefit of so
many of us around the world.

Now to facts and figures for December.

During this last month we have added in a new project:

- Gyongyos, Hungary

(Slovakia) Rabbi Gottshall's Family Found! Possessions Found in Family Attic 70 Years After Deportation #hungary

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Several days ago I posted about trying to find the family of Rabbi Samuel
GOTTSHALL whose family photographs, and letters were found in an attic 70
years after the family was deported. The items were given to the city's
Museum of Jewish Culture with the hope the family could be identified and
relatives located. I am delighted to inform you that through the efforts
of Robyn Dryen, president of the Australian Jewish Genealogy Society
(Sydney) the grandson of Rabbi Samuel Gottshall, son of Rabbi Benjamin
Gottshall, has been contacted! I want to thank not only Robyn, but the
others who contacted me with "leads" that Rabbi Gottshall's son did indeed
immigrate to Australia after surviving the camps. I received emails from
Israel, Australia, Indonesia and the United States.all with information
about Rabbi Benjamin Gottshall. What happens to the materials is now the
decision of the family- Rabbi Gottshall's son and daughter.

The success of finding the descendants of Rabbi Samuel Gottshall 70 years
after the holocaust and about 10,000 miles (16000 km) away is due to the
unique attributes of and as Robyn is a president of a JGS, to the IAJGS
Leadership Forum and their worldwide reach. JewishGen and IAJGS Leadership
Forum were instrumental in getting the word out and deserves some of the
credit in the "find". and its worldwide reach. JewishGen was instrumental
in getting the word out and deserves some of the credit in the "find". I
have donated my annual contribution to JewishGen have you? They deserve our
support for all that they do and for providing us with this fantastic
worldwide forum to post such inquiries.

Thank you again to Robyn for the outreach in Sydney, and all the others who
contacted me.

Cemetery in Poland. They are in Hebrew. The names are Yaakov
SCHULKLEINET, Aron SZULKLAJNOT, Szmul SZULKLEJNOT, and Miraim
