ViewMate translation request - Russian and Yiddish #general

Nicolas Grossfeld
 

Dear Genners,

I've posted a document in Russian for which I need a complete translation.
It seems to be linked to my Grand mother Sonya Alexandrovna KRICHEVSKI and
contains names and addresses at the end.
Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM27848

I've also posted the backs of 2 pictures with texts in
Russian and in Yiddish on the second one. I would like to have those 2 texts
translated (no problem with the French comments)
Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM27849

We also have found letters written by Sonya's sisters, mother, brothers. All
are in Russian (written before and after the orthographic simplification) and
we would like to have those letters translated. So if someone is interested,
please contact me privatly and I'll forward them. Any discussion possible.
Thank you very much for your help.

Re: Research in Israel: Sabina SCHORR of Ramat Gan: now recently deceased #general

Funerals in Israel are usually done by the local Hevra Kadisha, in
this case Ramat Gan, which is part of the Tel Aviv area.

There is a very good JewishGen Infofile about locating burial records
in Israel at
http://www.jewishgen.org/infofiles/il-burial_records.htm , however,
the link at the bottom, for contact informations, is broken. :-(

Instead, the Israel Genealogical Society has a web page at
http://www.isragen.org.il/siteFiles/1/618/4661.asp , information
about burials in Israel, has a link to the Tel Aviv Hevra Kadisha web
site http://www.kadisha.biz . Note that there's an "English" button
near the top of the page. (but the search field seems to require
Hebrew input, and the search results are returned in Hebrew.)

... Can you help in one of the following ways:

1. Sabina is buried at Kiryat Shaul Cemetery (location 50-48-3). Her funeral
would have been last month, May, so presumably someone will have organised a
funeral service and people will have attended to pay respects. Who were the
funeral directors? Will the cemetery know? Can someone telephone on my behalf?
Somebody involved in the process will surely have known Sabina.

Re: Reclaiming Austrian Citizenship #austria-czech

Michael,

Your parents would have the right to obtain Austrian citizenship if they are still alive.
See http://www.wien.gv.at/english/administration/civilstatus/citizenship/declaretion.html
However, I doubt that that right would extend to you, unless you were born
in Austria.

If you have been waiting to sign up for the special events at the IAJGS
2013 Boston conference, time is running out.

The tours (sign up at www.tours.iajgs2013.org ) are very popular -- filling
up fast and selling out. In response to the high demand, we are pleased to
announce that we are offering a second walking tour of Boston's Old South
End, but we do not have that capability for any of the other tours.

The two bus tours are also filling up. Visit the Touro Synagogue
(www.tourosynagogue.org), America's oldest synagogue and a national
historic site, as it celebrates its 250th anniversary this year. The
curator and archivist of the synagogue's visitor center, David Kleiman,
will travel on the bus with the group to provide background and then will
lead the tour. The Colonial Jewish Burial Ground
(http://www.loebtouro.org/jll_cem.shtml), generally closed to the public,
will be opened especially for our group. Tour Date & Destination: Sunday,
August 4, Newport, Rhode Island.

Visit the Yiddish Book Center (www.yiddishbookcenter.org) which rescued
over a million Yiddish books >from dumpsters around the world as the older
generation of Yiddish speakers passed on and their children could not read
the language of their parents and ancestors. This ongoing campaign has
saved Yiddish literature for future generations and made the widespread
university-level study of Yiddish language and literature possible. It
earned Aaron Lansky, the Center's founder and director, a "Genius Grant"
from the MacArthur Foundation and an invitation to be the keynote speaker
at our opening session. Tour Date & Destination: Friday, August 9,
Amherst, Massachusetts.

The special events involving meals (sign up at www.meals.iajgs2013.org) --
Breakfasts with Experts, SIG Luncheons, and the Gala Banquet -- have
limited space and a sign-up deadline of July 24. Genzyme is offering a
symposium on Ashkenazi Jewish genetic diseases, with a specially priced
breakfast on Thursday. The banquet on Thursday night features the
outstanding Zamir Chorale (www.zamir.org) of Boston.

The 19 computer workshops (sign up at www.workshops.iajgs2013.org) -- four
using Mac computers -- have very limited space. Subjects range >from Steve
Morse's popular "One-Step Search" tools to Reunion(R) and Family Tree
Maker(R) genealogy software. The hands-on workshops can teach you new
skills in doing research in Bessarabia, Hungary, Latvia, or Poland or how
better to use the Internet, social media, or JewishGen.

Hello,

A friend is looking for two sisters who entered the US through the port
of Boston. She only knows their Yiddish names, Sheindl and Guizi
Sherman. I've been unable to find them in census or ship records.
Could anyone suggest some English translations for "Sheindl" and
"Guizi"?

Thanks very much.

2013 Boston conference, time is running out.

The tours (sign up at www.tours.iajgs2013.org ) are very popular -- filling
up fast and selling out. In response to the high demand, we are pleased to
announce that we are offering a second walking tour of Boston's Old South
End, but we do not have that capability for any of the other tours.

The two bus tours are also filling up. Visit the Touro Synagogue
(www.tourosynagogue.org), America's oldest synagogue and a national
historic site, as it celebrates its 250th anniversary this year. The
curator and archivist of the synagogue's visitor center, David Kleiman,
will travel on the bus with the group to provide background and then will
lead the tour. The Colonial Jewish Burial Ground
(http://www.loebtouro.org/jll_cem.shtml), generally closed to the public,
will be opened especially for our group. Tour Date & Destination: Sunday,
August 4, Newport, Rhode Island.

Visit the Yiddish Book Center (www.yiddishbookcenter.org) which rescued
over a million Yiddish books >from dumpsters around the world as the older
generation of Yiddish speakers passed on and their children could not read
the language of their parents and ancestors. This ongoing campaign has
saved Yiddish literature for future generations and made the widespread
university-level study of Yiddish language and literature possible. It
earned Aaron Lansky, the Center's founder and director, a "Genius Grant"
from the MacArthur Foundation and an invitation to be the keynote speaker
at our opening session. Tour Date & Destination: Friday, August 9,
Amherst, Massachusetts.

The special events involving meals (sign up at www.meals.iajgs2013.org) --
Breakfasts with Experts, SIG Luncheons, and the Gala Banquet -- have
limited space and a sign-up deadline of July 24. Genzyme is offering a
symposium on Ashkenazi Jewish genetic diseases, with a specially priced
breakfast on Thursday. The banquet on Thursday night features the
outstanding Zamir Chorale (www.zamir.org) of Boston.

The 19 computer workshops (sign up at www.workshops.iajgs2013.org) -- four
using Mac computers -- have very limited space. Subjects range >from Steve
Morse's popular "One-Step Search" tools to Reunion(R) and Family Tree
Maker(R) genealogy software. The hands-on workshops can teach you new
skills in doing research in Bessarabia, Hungary, Lithuania, or Poland or how
better to use the Internet, social media, or JewishGen.
