JewishGen offers New Class: Jewish Genealogy in East Prussia and the Baltic States #poland

Nancy Holden
 

JewishGen offers New Class: Jewish Genealogy in East Prussia and the
Baltic States August 3 - August 26.

For the first time, JewishGen is offering a research class with focus
on Jewish Genealogical research in East Prussia and the Baltic States.

This course will focus on the modern countries of Lithuania (Kaunas),
Latvia, Estonia and the western part of East Prussia that borders the
Baltic Sea.

This region was once inhabited by the Baltic Prussians and Jews where
German language and culture dominated. Regional wars, famine, trade and
treaties influenced Jews who were permitted to live there. The ports and
the rivers that ran into the Baltic determined Jewish life.

If your ancestral roots were in East Prussia, Northern Poland, Western
Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia this class may help you break stumbling
blocks in your research. We will work at records still in existence for
these areas. Where records are sparse we will concentrate on finding
alternate sources.

JewishGen education classes are private, open for your posts 24/7.
You post your family information and the instructor will help you set
objectives to find the solutions for finding missing data.

Tuition for this class is $125. for three weeks of instruction.

If you are interested in this class, we encourage you to send the
instructor a brief summary of your research information and your
questions to see if your research project fits within the scope of
this class. More information

Using 19th century Vienna databases to identify Moritz STEINER #germany

David Dubin <davidmdubin@...>
 

Hi all,

An ancestor Moriz/Moritz STEINER reportedly lived in Vienna in 1861.
(His son's marriage record states that the groom's parents, Moriz &
Maria, were in Vienna at the time.) Using the Vienna cemetery
database, I found six people by that name whose dates fit.

How can I find the inscriptions on the stones? I would like to see the
Hebrew names and other pertinent information that may lead to my
identifying one of them as my ancestor.

Is there a register of deaths that might have spouses' names, parents'
names or other identifiers?

I am new to Vienna genealogy and any help would be appreciated.

Thank you, David Dubin, Teaneck, NJ davidmdubin@gmail.com

Yizkor Book Project, June 2018 #ciechanow #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

In general, I begin my monthly Yizkor Book Project report with writing
how impressed I am over the achievements we've managed to accomplish over
the past month. This time, however, I leave it to you to decide for
yourself about the scale of achievements we've made in both quantity and
quality in June, and I believe you'll come to the same conclusion as
myself.

Once again, I have the wonderful news to convey to you that a further
Yizkor book translation project is now entirely online. This time it is
the Chorzele, Poland Yizkor book - the "Memorial Book of the Community
of Chorzel" which was coordinated and financially supported by Susan
Huntting. We are truly indebted to her for leading the project through
to its successful completion.

As far as new projects go, we have added in three pdf files, kindly
provided by the Yizkor Book in Print Project of books they have published
through their auspices. As with all our online translations and books,
access to these are without charge but, of course, if you interested in
purchasing one of these published books, please see details of how to
obtain them in the YBIP Project page, listed at the end of this report.

We have also been fortunate in June, in receiving access to another
online book by Meir G. Gover - this time on the "Radzyner Rebbe dynasty
1840-2005". We do thank Meir for making this book available and I feel
sure will be of interest to those of you with roots in Radzyn Podlaski,
Poland.

In this past month, a number of Translation Fund projects have been set
up to obtain financial support of people with the same aim - achieving
the English translation of the Yizkor book about the community they hold
dear to their heart. As I so often note, the Yizkor books contain so much
for us in details of the communities and the people in them - details
which are unavailable in any other source.

The translation funds that have recently been setup are for the books on
Turobin, Poland and Svencionys, Lithuania and your support for any of
these funds will greatly assist in achieving the goal of completely
translating these books. I invite you to visit our JewishGen-erosity
page, listed at the end of this report, where all our Translation Funds
appear and welcome your donations, be they large or small, to see the
translations of the books become a reality.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried
out in the Yizkor Book Project in June.

We have added in three new books:

- God's Sabbatical Years (The Story of Alan Weiler)
https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/SabbaticalYears/SabbaticalYears.html

- My Journey to Freedom (Kybartai to Haifa)

- The Maple Tree Behind the Barbed Wire (A Story of Survival >from the
