Yizkor Book Project, June 2014 #warsaw #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

from time to time, I ponder the enormity of the project we are involved in -
the Yizkor Book Project, which involves the translation of hundreds of
Yizkor books with their scores of pages, >from their original languages
(usually Hebrew and Yiddish) into English and other languages. It is a huge
undertaking but I am encouraged to see that month by month, section by
section, paragraph by paragraph, more and more of the secrets hidden in
these books are revealed. What we find in them are stories of lives and
lifestyles that no longer exist and, on a darker side, unfathomable stories
of man's inhumanity to man. There is certainly so much to do but my
encouragement comes >from the large number of people who dedicate so much of
their time to the project and am heartened to see that others continue to
join our ranks. For those who have yet to join us, I welcome your
participation in any way you are able and welcome you to contact me so that
I can explain in more detail what is involved.

This past month, yet another book in the Yizkor Book Project has been
completely translated - "In memory of the life and destruction of the Jewish
community of Goniadz" (Goniadz, Poland) which is coordinated by Suzanne
Scheraga. My heartfelt thanks go out to Suzanne for this achievement for her
many years of involvement in another Goniadz Yizkor book which we also hope
to see completed in the very near future.

If I have managed to raise your curiosity about the Yizkor Book Project and
you will be attending the IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy
at the end of this month, I warmly invite you to the Yizkor Books Birds of a
Feather meeting which, as in previous years, will be led by Jan Meisels
Allen. This is a golden opportunity to learn and ask questions about the
project >from Jan who has extensive experience in translation coordination
within the Yizkor Book Project and also has wide knowledge in the
genealogical field, in general. For those of you who are attending the
conference, I wish you an enlightening and enjoyable time and, of course,
pleasant get-togethers with your fellow researchers.

Has anyone had luck in obtaining NYC vital records later than those in the
Municipal archives (e.g., birth records later than 1909). If so, could
you share your strategy. As far as I know these are only available to
closely related family members.

Bessarabian / Moldavian Jewish Roots Facebook group digest #bessarabia

Inna Vayner <innanes@...>
 

Nearly 200 members have joined our Bessarabian / Moldavian Jewish
Roots Facebook group since it's creation a month ago. We have been
exchanging surnames and towns and created an excel file that contains
last names, towns and contact information of the researchers.

Sophia Kulich is the group member who brought a book >from her trip to
Moldova with a list of Orhei cemetery graves. Sophia kindly agreed to
look up names in the book for those who are researching in Orhei. Her
email info@....

For those who is interested in Tiraspol records: Kherson archive
confirmed that they have 1795 and 1858 revision lists. There might be
a good chance that Kherson archive keeps Dubossary and Grigoriopol
lists as well.

One of the members recently shared a success story with us. By
following the link to the US Holocaust Memorial Museum published in
the group, she was able to find interviews with her great aunts about
her great grand parents evacuation experience as well as some family
pictures. Here is the link to the Visual History Archive Online (VHA
Online) http://vhaonline.usc.edu/login.aspx

Please consider joining the group if you haven't done this yet.
