Yizkor Book Project, October 2015 #latinamerica

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

As always, there is quite a lot to tell you about the activities of the
Yizkor Book Project over the past month. To begin with, no less than three
books were published by our very own Yizkor Books in Print (YBIP) Project
and they are:

- "Memorial Book of Bolekhov " (Bolekhiv, Ukraine)
- "Rokitno-Wolyn and Surroundings; Memorial Book and Testimony" (Rokytne,
Ukraine)
- "The 51st Brigade; The History of the Jewish Partisan Group >from the
Slonim Ghetto (Slonim, Belarus)

To say that this is a remarkable achievement is a definite understatement
and I do sincerely thank Joel Alpert and his dedicated volunteer team for
preparing these and a grand total of 42 books that have already been brought
to print. Please be aware that apart >from these books being printed as hard
copies, the books themselves are still freely available in the Yizkor Book
site, including English books that were presented to us to be published. For
instance, the "51st Brigade" book noted above is also listed and available
in the Yizkor Book Index: http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html

More and more are people realizing that to facilitate the translation of a
particular Yizkor Book, the recommended way is to set up a JewishGen
Translations Fund to pay for the professional translation of the book. The
fund enables those people interested in the book >from a particular
community to donate towards the common goal of having it translated and for
US citizens, the donations to JewishGen are tax deductible.

During October, a further new Translations Fund was set up for the Biala
Podlaska (Poland) Yizkor Book and I do invite people with connections to
this community or any of the other community book listed in our
JewishGen-erosity
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
to help support these important projects financially for the benefit of
many, now and for generations to come.

And now for the changes and additions that were carried out in the Yizkor
Book Project over October.

During this last month we have added in 3 new projects:

Names changes have me stymied: Hacohen, Hestrin, Gestrin , Katz #ukraine

Judith Comfort <judithcomfort@...>
 

Hello friends,

My mother's paternal name was HESTRIN (variations GESTRIN and GUESTRIN). Some family members were named HACOHEN - HESTRIN but the story passed down is that the original name was KATZ. I am wondering if anyone knows anything about these names, >from Lithuania originally and Poltava Gubernia in the Ukraine. They were Kohanim. Any clues would be gratefully accepted by me!

Re: Tolkachev #belarus

Linda Kelley
 

There were Tolkachev and Tolkotchev/Tolkatcher in Bobruisk, Belarus
who immigrated to the US and used Tolkoff and Tulkoff.

Some of the Bobruisk Tolkachevs were Itzak, Moshe and Abraham.

There were Tolkaziers >from Ukraine who also used Tolkoff in the US.
Some Ukrainian Tolcachirs went to Argentina in 1894.

It is possible they all lived in Ukraine, and acquired this Russian
surname there. Tolkachev is not a Jewish surname; they may have gotten
it >from a Gentile employer in Ukraine. That's the theory of a
95-year-old Tolkachev who lived in Bobruisk; she said it means "smart"
in Russian.

Does anyone know if these are all variants of the same Russian surname?

Thank you!

Re: Israeli records? #general

Daniel Horowitz <daniel@...>
 

There are a few websites you can try, depending on how old the records are.

1.- Must say first: MyHeritage search engine, focused on Israel
https://www.myheritage.com/research/category-Israel/israel
Here you can find not only records but family trees matching your
search of this family. The search is performed with transliteration
technology, so an English search may bring you Hebrew results.
There are actually 2 possible headstones and an interesting
phone book if Akiva had a Hotel.

2.- Israel Genealogy research Association (IGRA)
http://genealogy.org.il/AID/index.php
639,107 records >from different periods of the life in Israel, 100%
dual language.

3.- Avelim (Obituaries)
http://www.avelim.co.il/
Yes, I know you want to find living relatives, but some times they died ;-(
Another bad news ... search only in Hebrew, so ask Steve Morse for
help http://www.stevemorse.org

4.- Israel Genealogy Society (IGS)
http://www.isragen.org.il/siteFiles/1/153/7898.asp
Dual language search engine, unknown number of records and most of
them closed only for members

More links can be found at http://genealogy.org.il/resources/israel-resources/
