Article touts Surname Distribution Mapper's Progressive Mode #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

In the few weeks since the "Surname Distribution Mapper"
went live, feedback has confirmed our anticipation that this
new tool would be a great boon for researchers who utilize
this addition to JRI-Poland search options.

In his article for the Canadian Jewish News, journalist and
long-time genealogist, Bill Gladstone, emphasizes the
importance of the "progressive mode" that displays the
march, via a sort of still-frame animated movie, of the
tree icons across the map in 10-year intervals.

Gladstone also quotes Gary Mokotoff, publisher of Avotaynu,
the International Review of Jewish Genealogy, who
observed, "The Surname Distribution Mapper offers a
magnificent pictorial representation" of where one's
ancestral relatives lived in Poland.

As one researcher excitedly commented, "I found family
where I never expected." We hope you will too!

Re: The Use of "Jr." by Jews #general

Martin Fischer
 

Meron Lavie asked: "What is the likelihood that a Jew (born and living for
his first 8 years of life in a shtetl), would call his son, born in NYC
by the same name?"

My grand-aunt Caroline Fischer Slupsky and her husband Abraham Slupsky
of St. Louis, Missouri, USA, named one of their sons Abraham Slupsky Jr.
Caroline was born in St. Louis in 1874, and her husband was born in London,
England in the early 1860s but reportedly spent part of his early childhood
in Kempen, Posen, Prussia.

Abe Jr. was born in 1902. In the 1910 U.S. Census he was erroneously
identified as Abraham J. but in the 1920 census he was listed as Abe Jr.
In 1930, he was just Abe.

His father was a minor Republican Party politician in the Jewish neighborhood
north of downtown St. Louis who was often mentioned in newspapers around
the U.S.

While being interviewed by a news reporter at home in St. Louis for a July
4, 1904 article in the New York Sun, his then-youngest son, who was about 2
years-old at the time, entered the room: 'Now I'll show you something that you
won't find anywhere in Missouri', he told the Sun's reporter. 'You may not know
that the Jews all name their children after the dead. This is the only Jew in
the State of Missouri who is named after his [still living] father. This is
Abe Slupsky Jr. and if you can find anywhere in the State of Missouri another
Jew child that is named after his father, I'll give $100 to any charity
that you name.'

Yizkor Book Project, March 2012 #subcarpathia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Numerically wise and on the surface, the Yizkor book activities during March
seem a little quieter than usual, however volume-wise, this month saw
considerable amounts of material being added to various projects. As a
result, I would like to send out a number of thank-yous to the people behind
some of the March additions.

- This month no fewer than five necrologies were added - Capresti, Moldova;
Csenger, Hungary; Jadow, Poland; Korets, Ukraine; Luninyets, Belarus; and I
would like to thank Shalom Bronstein, Haim Sidor and Yefim Kogan for the
painstaking efforts they put into preparing them as accurately as possible.
- I would also like to thank Yefim Kogan, the Bessarabia SIG Coordinator,
for his encouragement and assistance in pushing forward the translation of
Yizkor books >from the Bessarabian region which contain so much un-tapped
information about the communities there
- This month saw the addition of the Vishnevets, Ukraine book which has been
translated and will be completely uploaded to the Yizkor Book Project over
the coming months. My sincere thanks go out to the people behind this
remarkable effort - Ron Doctor, Ellen Garshick and Sara Mages and for Ron
and Ellen's involvement in organization of the translation of other
Ukrainian Yizkor books.
- A grateful thank you goes out to Debby Applegate for the numerous
translations that she kindly donated to the Ivanava, Belarus (Yanow near
Pinsk) Yizkor book.
- A special thank you goes out to Joyce Field, former Yizkor Book Project
Manager, for compiling a very readable history of the Yizkor Book Project
which is now online and there for your enlightenment at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/YB_History.html

Other than that, some great news - Joel Alpert, the coordinator of the
Yizkor Books in Print Project has informed me that there are now five
