Yizkor Book Project, February 2019 #usa

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

There seems to be some unwritten law that despite its shortness,
February always seems to be one of the busiest times in the Yizkor
Book Project and this last one, didn't disappoint.

To begin with, I am more than very pleased to let you know that we
have just completely translated and placed online, another Yizkor
book. This time it is the "Czyzewo Memorial Book" covering the
Czyzew-Osada, Poland community and considering that it entails 1190
columns of text (around 585 pages), this is definitely no mean feat.
Our grateful thanks go out Jennifer Mohr who, >from the outset, has
coordinated the translation of this book with great energy and
dedication. Although the book is now completely translated, Jen is
now arranging for an index to be prepared for the book which is always
an invaluable additional tool that researchers can be good use of.

Continuing on with the good news, I am pleased to let you know that
the 80th book published by the Yizkor Books in Print Project has
recently hit the shelves. The book, "The Jews of Kishinev" covering
the lost Jewish community of Chisinau, Moldova has become a reality
through the enthusiastic coordination of Yefim Kogan and the wonderful
translations of volunteer, Sheli Fain, and of course, the YBIP team
led by Joel Alpert. Our grateful thanks goes out to all those involved
in the translation and publication of this book and for those
interested in learning more about the other 79 books that have been
published, please see the link to the YBIP project at the end of this
report.

Other good news. The New York Public Library has done wonders over
the years to allow us ready online access to an enormous number of
Yizkor books. It has now gone an extra step further and provided the
public with a very useful guide for viewing the online books and also
has provided useful links to other online sites, including our very
own Yizkor Book Project. In my humble opinion, a worthwhile site to
bookmark: https://libguides.nypl.org/yizkorbooks

As Purim is just around the corner, I would like to wish you dear
readers and your families, a very enjoyable time over this upbeat
holiday and wish you a Happy Purim and/or a Purim Sameach.

Breslau address Book 1920 [STEINFELD,Caecilie born SCHLESINGER] #germany

Evelyn Wilson <kd184d@...>
 

Dear Gersig members,

I am researching my GrGM, STEINFELD,Caecilie born SCHLESINGER in
Proskau/Proszkow,Silesia about 1850 and living in Oberglogau/Glogowek
1869-1900. She is known to have lived in Breslau /Wroclaw from
1900-1920.

Her last known Breslau address as listed in the Germany and Surrounding
Area, Address Books, 1815-1974 was 1920 and 1921 Address listing :
XIII Sadowastr. 30III.
The street today is known as ul.Swobodna in Wroclaw. A current map
shows the street is located in a commercial area near the train station,
shopping mall and not far >from City Hall.

My goal is to locate her death certificate. There are 8 directories of
Birth, Marriage, Deaths in Breslau for the years that I am researching.

My Question: Based on the last known address : XIII Sadowastr. 30III is
there a source to determine in which directory (1-8) her death record
would most likely be included.? I do not know if the Breslau directories
are divided into districts based on the address? Thank you,

Evelyn L. Wilson, Reston, VA JGID # 471110 kd184d@gmail.com

Nolan Altman has received a copy of a Hungarian cemetery map >from
Oroshaza, Bekes megye, that has handwritten entries for pre-WW II
burials. He is looking for a volunteer interested in using the map to
try to extract as many of the names and dates as possible and enter them
into a spreadsheet that the donor started but was unable to complete.
I've seen the map and several of the sections, which are relatively
easy to read with higher resolution. If you are willing and
able to help, please contact me at < vkahn@kmort.com > of Nolan at
< naltman@jewishgen.org > and we can send a pdf of the cemetery map,
template, etc.

Thanks in advance!
