Yizkor Book Project, December 2018 #general

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I seem to have surprised myself by what we managed to achieve over
December in the Yizkor Book Project and the long list of new entries
and updates at the end of this report does bear witness to this.

I am pleased to say that, once again, we completely uploaded another
Yizkor book and this time for Monor, Hungary. Judith Lipmanson was
behind this project becoming a reality and we do thank her sincerely
for this. In addition, we were able to complete the online version of
the "Preserving Our Litvak Heritage" book which is also available as a
hard copy via the Yizkor Books in Print Project.

And regarding this project, it also provided some additional welcome
surprises for us - over the last month, no less than three new published
books became available. They are:

- The "Yekaterinoslav-Dnepropetrovsk Memorial Book" on the Dnipropetrovsk
(Dnipro), Ukraine community
- The "The Zbaraz Memorial Book" on the Zbarazh, Ukraine community
- The "Resistance and Death in the Czenstochower Ghetto" on the
Czestochowa, Poland community

I'm really in awe of this remarkable achievement by Joel Alpert's
dedicated team and wish them "yeshar koach" and, at the same time, thank
them for the wonderful books that they continue to publish on a regular
basis. By-the-way, purchase details of these and all the other published
books can be found on YBIP page, the link for which appears at the end of
this report.

Being that it is the end of 2018, it seems appropriate to note a few
facts and figures about our project. Within the Yizkor Book Project,
there are now:

- over 900 translation projects of which 154 are complete projects with
many others heading towards completion.
- 2,255 entries - which are complete articles covering particular
communities. Notably, many of these come >from the Pinkasei Hakehillot
(Encyclopaedias of Jewish Communities) volumes translated >from the
original Hebrew.
- 78 published books by the YBIP Project.

I don't wish to overwhelm you with too many facts & figures but at the
same time, do want you to appreciate the extent of the YB Project that we
volunteers and professional translators continue to make progress with,
month in and month out.

And now for the additions and updates are what we've carried out during
December:

We have added in one new book:

- Torchin, Ukraine (Torchin, our lost but not forgotten town)
www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Torchin/Torchin.html

We have added in 10 new entries:

- Akmene, Lithuania (Preserving Our Litvak Heritage)

MUSZKAT in Svolen, Poland #general

Dina Hill
 

Happy New Year!

I am trying to find information on my maternal great-grandfather Mejor
and my great-grandmother Fajga nee Helfman MUSZKAT. My maternal
grandmother told me that her dad was born in Svolen. I think my
grandmother Slawa was born there too. Their other children were Dina,
Sooraleh, Shmiel, Hanna and Ellie. I'm guessing Sooraleh was Sura. My
grandmother Slawa was born in 1907.

This has been my brick wall for years. They were all killed in the
Holocaust, but they were married and had children. Some survived the
Holocaust but most didn't.

Any help or advice would be so appreciated. I'm not an amateur
genealogist. In fact, I'm a Professional but I specialize in American
genealogy. This is my family though and it's the most difficult.

Sincerely,
Dina Aptekar Hill

Genealogical DNA tests and halocho #dna

Benjamin First
 

Hello ,

I was wondering if anyone could tell me what contemporary halachic
authoraties say about recreational DNA tests. There are lots of
discussions/shiurim online about the use of DNA testing in halocho in
serious cases eg 911 however I haven't found anyone who discusses what
contemporary halachic authoraties have to say about taking a DNA test
for recreational genealogical purposes. I understand that the
jewishgen discussion group is not for halachic discussions however if
someone can point me in the right direction it would be appreciated.

Kind Regards

hard copy via the Yizkor Books in Print Project.

And regarding this project, it also provided some additional welcome
surprises for us - over the last month, no less than three new published
books became available. They are:

- The "Yekaterinoslav-Dnepropetrovsk Memorial Book" on the Dnipropetrovsk
(Dnipro), Ukraine community
- The "The Zbaraz Memorial Book" on the Zbarazh, Ukraine community
- The "Resistance and Death in the Czenstochower Ghetto" on the
Czestochowa, Poland community

I'm really in awe of this remarkable achievement by Joel Alpert's
dedicated team and wish them "yeshar koach" and, at the same time, thank
them for the wonderful books that they continue to publish on a regular
basis. By-the-way, purchase details of these and all the other published
books can be found on YBIP page, the link for which appears at the end of
this report.

Being that it is the end of 2018, it seems appropriate to note a few
facts and figures about our project. Within the Yizkor Book Project,
there are now:

- over 900 translation projects of which 154 are complete projects with
many others heading towards completion.
- 2,255 entries - which are complete articles covering particular
communities. Notably, many of these come >from the Pinkasei Hakehillot
(Encyclopaedias of Jewish Communities) volumes translated >from the
original Hebrew.
- 78 published books by the YBIP Project.

I don't wish to overwhelm you with too many facts & figures but at the
same time, do want you to appreciate the extent of the YB Project that we
volunteers and professional translators continue to make progress with,
month in and month out.

And now for the additions and updates are what we've carried out during
December:

We have added in one new book:

- Torchin, Ukraine (Torchin, our lost but not forgotten town)
www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Torchin/Torchin.html

Shalom,

I seem to have surprised myself by what we managed to achieve over

Romania SIG #Romania Yizkor Book Project, December 2018 #romania

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I seem to have surprised myself by what we managed to achieve over
December in the Yizkor Book Project and the long list of new entries
and updates at the end of this report does bear witness to this.

I am pleased to say that, once again, we completely uploaded another
Yizkor book and this time for Monor, Hungary. Judith Lipmanson was
behind this project becoming a reality and we do thank her sincerely
for this. In addition, we were able to complete the online version of
the "Preserving Our Litvak Heritage" book which is also available as a
hard copy via the Yizkor Books in Print Project.

And regarding this project, it also provided some additional welcome
surprises for us - over the last month, no less than three new published
books became available. They are:

- The "Yekaterinoslav-Dnepropetrovsk Memorial Book" on the Dnipropetrovsk
(Dnipro), Ukraine community
- The "The Zbaraz Memorial Book" on the Zbarazh, Ukraine community
- The "Resistance and Death in the Czenstochower Ghetto" on the
Czestochowa, Poland community

I'm really in awe of this remarkable achievement by Joel Alpert's
dedicated team and wish them "yeshar koach" and, at the same time, thank
them for the wonderful books that they continue to publish on a regular
basis. By-the-way, purchase details of these and all the other published
books can be found on YBIP page, the link for which appears at the end of
this report.

Being that it is the end of 2018, it seems appropriate to note a few
facts and figures about our project. Within the Yizkor Book Project,
there are now:

- over 900 translation projects of which 154 are complete projects with
many others heading towards completion.
- 2,255 entries - which are complete articles covering particular
communities. Notably, many of these come >from the Pinkasei Hakehillot
(Encyclopaedias of Jewish Communities) volumes translated >from the
original Hebrew.
- 78 published books by the YBIP Project.

I don't wish to overwhelm you with too many facts & figures but at the
same time, do want you to appreciate the extent of the YB Project that we
volunteers and professional translators continue to make progress with,
month in and month out.

And now for the additions and updates are what we've carried out during
December:

We have added in one new book:

- Torchin, Ukraine (Torchin, our lost but not forgotten town)
www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Torchin/Torchin.html

We have added in 10 new entries:

Searching for gravestone-Isaac GARFINKEL #general

Milton Koch
 

I am searching for a gravestone for Isaac Garfinkel, who died in 1952. His wife
was Rose Kavenoff.

He was buried in Beth-El cemetery. I believe he might have been living in Queens,
NYC at the time of death. However, I do not know where the cemetery is located.
I would like to know where this is located in order to obtain a photograph of a
possible gravestone, and/or other details.

Thank you.

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Yizkor Book Project, December 2018 #ukraine

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I seem to have surprised myself by what we managed to achieve over
December in the Yizkor Book Project and the long list of new entries
and updates at the end of this report does bear witness to this.

I am pleased to say that, once again, we completely uploaded another
Yizkor book and this time for Monor, Hungary. Judith Lipmanson was
behind this project becoming a reality and we do thank her sincerely
for this. In addition, we were able to complete the online version of
the "Preserving Our Litvak Heritage" book which is also available as a
hard copy via the Yizkor Books in Print Project.

And regarding this project, it also provided some additional welcome
surprises for us - over the last month, no less than three new published
books became available. They are:

- The "Yekaterinoslav-Dnepropetrovsk Memorial Book" on the Dnipropetrovsk
(Dnipro), Ukraine community
- The "The Zbaraz Memorial Book" on the Zbarazh, Ukraine community
- The "Resistance and Death in the Czenstochower Ghetto" on the
Czestochowa, Poland community

I'm really in awe of this remarkable achievement by Joel Alpert's
dedicated team and wish them "yeshar koach" and, at the same time, thank
them for the wonderful books that they continue to publish on a regular
basis. By-the-way, purchase details of these and all the other published
books can be found on YBIP page, the link for which appears at the end of
this report.

Being that it is the end of 2018, it seems appropriate to note a few
facts and figures about our project. Within the Yizkor Book Project,
there are now:

- over 900 translation projects of which 154 are complete projects with
many others heading towards completion.
- 2,255 entries - which are complete articles covering particular
communities. Notably, many of these come >from the Pinkasei Hakehillot
(Encyclopaedias of Jewish Communities) volumes translated >from the
original Hebrew.
- 78 published books by the YBIP Project.

I don't wish to overwhelm you with too many facts & figures but at the
same time, do want you to appreciate the extent of the YB Project that we
volunteers and professional translators continue to make progress with,
month in and month out.

And now for the additions and updates are what we've carried out during
December:

We have added in one new book:

- Torchin, Ukraine (Torchin, our lost but not forgotten town)
