Yahrzeit tablet-Hebrew translation #lithuania

J Weisman
 

Dear Siggers,

I am unfamiliar with Yahrzeit tablets, and wonder if it is at all
possible that they reveal details such as village, synagogue, cemetery,
etc. I have a working translation of the person in this tablet, believed
to be my gg grandmother Ita KACYZNSKI (married name DOGOVSKI) who lived
in Seirijai Lithuania. Is there nothing to indicate her or her father's
surname? And is there any way to translate 10th AdarII 1908 into a
Gregorian date?

This is the full tablet:

This is a closeup of the inset:

Thanks very much,

1927 Cadastral Maps of Tarnow in the Gesher Galicia Map Room #poland

Jay Osborn <jay.osborn@...>
 

A coordinated effort by Gesher Galicia volunteers and contractors has
helped bring you two versions of a 1927 cadastral map of Tarnow,
posted today on the Gesher Galicia Map Room:

https://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/tarnow-tarnau-tarna-1927-1/
https://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/tarnow-tarnau-tarna-1927-2/

Cadastral maps for the important Galician city of Tarnow (Tarnau,
Tarna, Torne) have eluded our archive searches since the beginning of
the Map Room; this has been near the top of our 'wanted' list for
years, and last year we expanded our search outside the southeast
Polish state archives to other map holdings, with no luck. Then in
early January, Maciej Orzechowski (GG research associate in SE Poland)
conducted another phone search and found maps at the Municipal Office
in Tarnow, in their geodesic documentation center. In April, GG board
chair Tony Kahane visited that office with our Warsaw representative
Piotr Gumola, and together they arranged for clear digital scans of
the two maps by the cartography department, along with map descriptive
info.

Although worn and incomplete, the maps are clearly numbered and
labeled, and represent a valuable record of the city during the
interwar period. The maps are based on an 1848 Austrian survey, but
updated in 1927 to reflect changes and adding street names. Key
pre-WWII city features of the entire downtown are shown, including two
synagogues and the Jewish hospital.

Anyone with an interest in historic Tarnow will enjoy browsing these
maps and comparing them to the modern city. We are grateful to find
these maps cared for (and still in use) by the Municipal Office:

JOWBR Grows to Over 3.1 Million Records! #unitedkingdom

bounce-3333466-785714@...
 

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2017 pre-Conference update to the
JOWBR (JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial Registry) database. The JOWBR
database can be accessed at www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/ If you're
a new JOWBR user, we recommend that you visit our screencast page at
www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Screencasts/ and take a look at the
first two explanatory screencasts.

This update, adds approximately 80,000 new records and 14,000 new
photos. The database is adding and/or updating 265 cemeteries. This update
brings JOWBR's holdings to 3.13 million records and 535,000 photos from
approximately 7,100 cemeteries / cemetery sections representing 125
countries!

Once again, donors for this update include a mix of individuals, Jewish
genealogical societies, historical societies and museums. We appreciate all
our donor's submissions and the transliteration work done by a faithful
group of JewishGen volunteers.

Significant additions to the database include collections >from Belarus
(courtesy of our new partnership with Chesed Shel Emet), Moldova (Bessarabia
SIG), additional French and German cemetery sets, and United States new and
updated sets (Veterans Administration records, Home of Eternity Cemetery
(Oakland, CA) United Hebrew Bretheren Cemetery (Richfield, MN), various MA
cemeteries (JGSGB). for a complete listing of all cemeteries in JOWBR,
please see www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm

I want to particularly thank Eric Feinstein who has been helping me to
find and gain permission to add many non-US records >from Germany, France and
under-represented countries. Eric's group of volunteers includes Sandra
Bennett, Lineke Bos, Malka Chosnek, George Goldschmied, Ann Meddin Hellman,
Maurice Kessler, Harriet Mayer, Hans Nord, Deborah Ross, Marylin Shalks, and
Suzanne Tarica. In addition, a big thank you to our volunteer
transliterators, led by Gilberto Jugend, without whom we would not be able
to add the information >from some very difficult to read photos.

We appreciate all the work our donors have done and encourage you to
make additional submissions. Whether you work on a cemetery / cemetery
section individually or consider a group project for your local Society,
temple or other group, it's your submissions that help grow the JOWBR
database and make it possible for researchers and family members to find
answers they otherwise might not. Please also consider other organizations
you may be affiliated with that may already have done cemetery indexing that
would consider having their records included in the JOWBR database.

We believe that the MPD is a good example of how users of JewishGen's
