descendants of Grigory/Gregorio (Hirsch) Rabinovich from Russia in Argentina #latinamerica

Nathalie Ried <nathalieried@...>
 

Shalom to all,
I'm a new member of this Sig so please forgive my lack of
knowledge/experience in Latin American Jewish genealogy.
I'm looking for some information about the descendants of Grigory /Gregorio
/Hirsch ben Shimon ben Girsh Berko RABINOVICH, who was my grandmother's
half-brother : her mother Rozalia Bat Yakov DAICHES married Shimon
RABINOVICH in Riga in 1888 and Grigory was born in Vilnius on Dec 20th 1892.

My mother has always told me that her mother Alice Amalia bat Benyamin Boris
WITKIND had a half-brother who had emigrated to Argentina. Unfortunately I
have no idea of the exact year of his departure, probably around 1912 or
possibly later.
Rozalia 's other children were my grandmother (Alice) Amalia (born in
Vilnius in 1897), Vera, and Tamara (born in St Petersburg in 1907.)

Apparently there are many Rabinoviches in Buenos Aires only, and the problem
is that I can understand Spanish a little but I don't speak it.

That's all I know, I hope to find some descendants or at least traces of
Grigory's trip to and life in Argentina, so I'm trying my luck here, many
thanks in advance for any tips or information,
Happy Chanukah,

Nathalie Ried (Marseille, FRANCE)

Holocaust Database Update Announcement #latinamerica

bounce-2344348-772964@...
 

JewishGen is pleased to present the 2011 recap of
JewishGen's Holocaust Database. The database can be accessed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Holocaust/

Since our last announcement, JewishGen's Holocaust Database has added
36 databases, accounting for more than 200,000 records. Ten databases
were added during 2011, comprising more than 120,000 records.
JewishGen's Holocaust Database now includes more than 2.4 million
records, >from more than 190 component databases. Some of the component
datasets added in 2011 are listed below.

When you perform your searches at the address above, you automatically
search all of the component databases. A listing of the component
databases with a description and link to each databases introduction
can be found by scrolling down the main search page address listed above.

The database continues to grow, thanks in large part to partnerships
with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and Yad Vashem.
In addition to these two institutions, we have begun to receive
interesting original research by JewishGen users and academics.
We believe JewishGen is an ideal location for the 'publishing' of
these pieces.

All component databases have a project introduction. The introduction
will give you further information about the historical background of
the data, location of the original source document, fields used in the
database, translation aides where applicable, and acknowledgements to
those that helped with data entry, validation and online preparation
of the list.

Among the additions this year are the following component databases:

* Assorted Romanian Lists. >from hundreds of source documents, these
lists range >from under ten handwritten names to pages of typed lists
for various Romanian towns during the Holocaust period. The project
introduction will explain how to find original source documents >from
the US Holocaust Memorial Museum -- approximately 73,000 records.

* Dutch Lists. A compilation of over 40 different source documents.
The lists include victims and survivors who were either Dutch by
nationality or were relocated to Holland after the war. The lists
were originally prepared by the Jewish Historical Museum in Amsterdam
-- more than 24,000 records.

* Miskolc, Hungary (and surrounding towns) Victims. John J. Kovacs
(a Miskolc survivor) undertook a project to commemorate the victims from
Miskolc and the surrounding area by creating this data set. The source
for this data set is the Jewish Community of Miskolc, which supplied the
lists to John. John's introduction includes the names of all the towns
included, information about Miskolc and a photo of his 4th grade class!
-- approximately 11,000 records.

* Piotrkow Trybunalski Ghetto Tax List. Larry Freund compiled the
data of almost 11,000 records representing those who paid taxes >from
1940 through early 1942. A copy of the lists were donated to the YIVO
Institute for Jewish Research by Ben Giladi, who received copies >from
the Piotrkow Trybunalski branch of the Polish National Archives --
approximately 11,000 records.

* Various Other Data Sets. Other 2011 data sets include Joel Waters'
work compiling victims >from Leova and the Cahul Camp, Kupiskis victims
primarily documented in 1946 by the midwife >from the Jewish Maternity
Hospital in Ponevezh, and Paul Silverstone's latest maritime data set
of Czech subjects interned in Mauritius.

--
More to come! In addition to these sets, we already have in
for review more than 29,000 records >from the Bergen-Belsen Book of
Remembrance, and close to 5,000 records for two Lublin, Poland
databases compiled by Robinn Magid. These sets should be processed
and go live after the first of the year.

To see all the added material, please see JewishGen's Holocaust
Database home page at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Holocaust/

We would also like to extend our thanks to all of the volunteers
who have assisted in making this data available to you. Their
names are listed in the individual project introductions. If
you are interested in assisting with data entry, or have a
database you think would be appropriate for JewishGen's Holocaust
Database, please contact me directly at naltman@jewishgen.org

Yizkor Book Project, December 2011 #latinamerica

Shalom,

With 2011 having flown past and 2012 on our doorstep, it's time to look back
at what we have achieved over the past year and look forward to even better
in the coming year. Apart >from the continued satisfaction I receive in
seeing the translations appear online, I am particularly moved by the teams
of people, literally >from all corners of the planet, who are behind these
translations and make these projects a reality. I would like to thank the
many, many volunteers who have made this all happen and hope to be in
contact with them in 2012 and see more or more people join our ranks.

During December, the last translations to be prepared for the Pinkas Lita
[Encyclopedia of Jewish communities, Lithuania] book went online and, once
again, I salute the amazing Shaul Yannai and Shimon Joffe for the mammoth
amount of work that went into all their hundreds of translations >from this
book. There are a number of articles of communities that weren't translated
and these will be added in the near future as expanded articles >from the
"Litvak Heritage" series that were kindly donated by Joel Alpert and Josef
Rosin.

I would like note the very generous contribution of Robin O'Neil, who in
addition to other research documents appearing in the Yizkor Book Project,
has submitted the entire, mind-provoking, "Rabka Four - Instruments of
Genocide and Grand Larceny" document, the first sections of which were added
online in December and will appear in its entirety within the next few
months.

This month the Zawiercie, Poland Yizkor Book was set up as a Translations
Fund and we're looking forward to seeing this project grow as funds come in.
Note that a very positive way of helping to see translations placed online
is by supporting this project or one of the many Translation Funds which
have been set up to bring about the professional translation of the Yizkor
books. If you feel able to support this effort, please go to the Yizkor
Book JewishGen-erosity page:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
to learn about the Translation Funds currently underway.

The Yizkor-Books-In-Print Project continues to gain momentum and is now
looking to compile a list volunteers who have access to libraries with
Yizkor book collections and are willing borrow a specific Yizkor book and
scan images for inclusion in the printed translation of these books. If you
have access to a library with Yizkor books and are willing to help out here,
please contact Joel Alpert whose contact information can be found at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html

JewishGen is pleased to present the 2011 recap of
JewishGen's Holocaust Database. The database can be accessed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Holocaust/

Since our last announcement, JewishGen's Holocaust Database has added
36 databases, accounting for more than 200,000 records. Ten databases
were added during 2011, comprising more than 120,000 records.
JewishGen's Holocaust Database now includes more than 2.4 million
records, >from more than 190 component databases. Some of the component
datasets added in 2011 are listed below.

When you perform your searches at the address above, you automatically
search all of the component databases. A listing of the component
databases with a description and link to each databases introduction
can be found by scrolling down the main search page address listed above.

The database continues to grow, thanks in large part to partnerships

were originally prepared by the Jewish Historical Museum in Amsterdam
-- more than 24,000 records.

* Miskolc, Hungary (and surrounding towns) Victims. John J. Kovacs
(a Miskolc survivor) undertook a project to commemorate the victims from
Miskolc and the surrounding area by creating this data set. The source
for this data set is the Jewish Community of Miskolc, which supplied the
lists to John. John's introduction includes the names of all the towns
included, information about Miskolc and a photo of his 4th grade class!
-- approximately 11,000 records.

* Piotrkow Trybunalski Ghetto Tax List. Larry Freund compiled the
data of almost 11,000 records representing those who paid taxes >from
1940 through early 1942. A copy of the lists were donated to the YIVO

More to come! In addition to these sets, we already have in

With 2011 having flown past and 2012 on our doorstep, it's time to look back
at what we have achieved over the past year and look forward to even better
in the coming year. Apart >from the continued satisfaction I receive in
seeing the translations appear online, I am particularly moved by the teams
of people, literally >from all corners of the planet, who are behind these
translations and make these projects a reality. I would like to thank the
many, many volunteers who have made this all happen and hope to be in
contact with them in 2012 and see more or more people join our ranks.

During December, the last translations to be prepared for the Pinkas Lita
[Encyclopedia of Jewish communities, Lithuania] book went online and, once
again, I salute the amazing Shaul Yannai and Shimon Joffe for the mammoth
amount of work that went into all their hundreds of translations >from this
book. There are a number of articles of communities that weren't translated
and these will be added in the near future as expanded articles >from the
"Litvak Heritage" series that were kindly donated by Joel Alpert and Josef
Rosin.

I would like note the very generous contribution of Robin O'Neil, who in
addition to other research documents appearing in the Yizkor Book Project,
has submitted the entire, mind-provoking, "Rabka Four - Instruments of
Genocide and Grand Larceny" document, the first sections of which were added
online in December and will appear in its entirety within the next few
months.

This month the Zawiercie, Poland Yizkor Book was set up as a Translations
Fund and we're looking forward to seeing this project grow as funds come in.
Note that a very positive way of helping to see translations placed online
is by supporting this project or one of the many Translation Funds which
have been set up to bring about the professional translation of the Yizkor
books. If you feel able to support this effort, please go to the Yizkor
Book JewishGen-erosity page:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
to learn about the Translation Funds currently underway.

The Yizkor-Books-In-Print Project continues to gain momentum and is now
looking to compile a list volunteers who have access to libraries with
Yizkor book collections and are willing borrow a specific Yizkor book and
scan images for inclusion in the printed translation of these books. If you
have access to a library with Yizkor books and are willing to help out here,
please contact Joel Alpert whose contact information can be found at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html

BREAKING THROUGH BRICK WALLS

Jewish Genealogical Society of Tampa Bay Sunday, January 8, 2012

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Tampa Bay will meet at Gulf Coast Jewish Family
Services, 14041 Icot Blvd., Clearwater, Florida on Sunday January 8, 2012 at 2:00
PM for a genealogy problem solving session – what to do when you bump into a
“brick wall”.

The problem-solving panel will include Debbe Hagner & Emil Isaacson, our resident
experts. Ms. Hagner is a professionally accredited genealogist who has a
Certificate in Family History Research & North American Research >from Brigham Young

his ancestral roots back seven generations to the late 1700’s in Europe. He
conducts an annual 2-day seminar in Jewish Genealogy for the JGSTB. Other
experienced genealogists will be available to assist as needed.

In this working session a panel of experienced resident genealogists will assist
those who have come up against a dead end in their family research and don't know
what to do next. The solutions presented should be of value to anyone doing family
research.

Those who present a “brick wall” problem by E-mail to <jgstb@tampabay.rr.com> prior
to the meeting will be given priority by the panel. Time permitting; problems
presented >from the floor will also be addressed.

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Tampa Bay’s library and research resources are
available to all meeting attendees and can be loaned out to members. Anyone
interested in learning how to do Jewish genealogy research is invited to
participate. Beginners as well as experienced researchers are welcome.

Shalom,

With 2011 having flown past and 2012 on our doorstep, it's time to look back
at what we have achieved over the past year and look forward to even better
in the coming year. Apart >from the continued satisfaction I receive in
seeing the translations appear online, I am particularly moved by the teams
of people, literally >from all corners of the planet, who are behind these
translations and make these projects a reality. I would like to thank the
many, many volunteers who have made this all happen and hope to be in
contact with them in 2012 and see more or more people join our ranks.

During December, the last translations to be prepared for the Pinkas Lita
[Encyclopedia of Jewish communities, Lithuania] book went online and, once
again, I salute the amazing Shaul Yannai and Shimon Joffe for the mammoth
amount of work that went into all their hundreds of translations >from this
book. There are a number of articles of communities that weren't translated
and these will be added in the near future as expanded articles >from the
"Litvak Heritage" series that were kindly donated by Joel Alpert and Josef
Rosin.

I would like note the very generous contribution of Robin O'Neil, who in
addition to other research documents appearing in the Yizkor Book Project,
has submitted the entire, mind-provoking, "Rabka Four - Instruments of
Genocide and Grand Larceny" document, the first sections of which were added
online in December and will appear in its entirety within the next few
months.

This month the Zawiercie, Poland Yizkor Book was set up as a Translations
Fund and we're looking forward to seeing this project grow as funds come in.
Note that a very positive way of helping to see translations placed online
is by supporting this project or one of the many Translation Funds which
have been set up to bring about the professional translation of the Yizkor
books. If you feel able to support this effort, please go to the Yizkor
Book JewishGen-erosity page:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
to learn about the Translation Funds currently underway.

The Yizkor-Books-In-Print Project continues to gain momentum and is now
looking to compile a list volunteers who have access to libraries with
Yizkor book collections and are willing borrow a specific Yizkor book and
scan images for inclusion in the printed translation of these books. If you
have access to a library with Yizkor books and are willing to help out here,
please contact Joel Alpert whose contact information can be found at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html

January's Wednesday library date - a correction. #unitedkingdom

Raymond Montanjees
 

Dear members,

Apologies. Please amend a small detail in yesterday's notice regarding
this month's Wednesday library session - I mis-typed the date ! It is
actually Wednesday the 11th and not the 10th.

Mid week, mid month visits to 33, are always on a Wednesday. (10.30 -
3pm) whilst the Sunday session (3 - 6 pm) is set for the last one of each
month. Should you not be able to come along on either of the programmed days,
then you will be very welcome to use the facility when there is a Special
Interest Group meeting without having to attend said group.

Regards

Raymond Montanjees.
