Yizkor Book Project, December 2011 #dna

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

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

Yizkor Book Project, December 2011 #poland #danzig #gdansk #germany

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

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

Wiltz = Dvinsk #general

Marc&Carine Ryszfeld <marcrys@...>
 

Dear all,
After confronting multiple sources, I have reasons to believe that the city of
Wiltz (Vidz) that appear in French civil documents for my CHAYETTE/CHAIT family is
actually the city of Dvinsk. I had never come across this pronunciation/spelling
before. So 1st, would anyone have come across such spelling for Dvinsk? And 2nd
would it make sense to have it added to the various spellings of Dvinsk in
JewihsgGen' ShtetlSeeker for future researchers looking for Wiltz (although the
mere presence of this message in the SIG archive is enough for that matter)
Happy Healthy and fruitful New Year.

Yizkor Book Project, December 2011 #germany

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

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

Happy 2012, Lance Ackerfeld Yizkor Book Project Manager lance.ackerfeld@gmail.com


German SIG #Germany Yizkor Book Project, December 2011 #germany

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

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

As far as the November figures go, during this last month we have added
these 4 new projects:

Synagogue-Communities of Dillingen and Nalbach)

ViewMate reading and translation request - German? #germany

Jeanette R Rosenberg OBE
 

Dear GerSiggers

I've posted two extracts >from a handwritten German civil marriage
certificate which I would like transcribed and translated for me. The
two extracts are on ViewMate at the following addresses

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=21187
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=21188

The two extracts are both part of the marriage certificate for my
Great Great Grandparents David SCHUBACH (1841-1891) and Clementine
SUSMANN (1848-1912). They were married on August 15, 1871 and the
certificate reference is Weissenthurm No 32 for the community of
Muelheim bei Koblenz.

I would be extremely grateful if someone could read the handwritten
script for me. I can read some of it and I have read the rest of the
certificate without any problem, but I want to make sure I understand
this part of the certificate fully.

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Many thanks and kind regards, Jeanette

Lithuania. I presume the writing is Yiddish and I would be very grateful for a
translation. I think the writer's name is Faige Raiize.

Many thanks and a Happy New Year,

Judy Wolkovitch

In september 2011, I was sent the following link concerning the GAVRONSKY family
from Zagare in Lithuania: http://blanke.net/Moshe.pdf In this family tree, I
found one of my ancestor, A. B. Gavronsky and his wife Liba Wissotzky and one of
his brothers, Rabinowitch. Unfortunately, this link is now broken and I didn't
download the tree. Did somebody keep a copy of this tree and could send it to me?

Thank you
