Volunteers needed to work with Regina Kopilevich #lithuania

Litvaks@...
 

We've already had a lot of excitement following the announcement of Regina
Kopilevich's visit. Now its time to hear >from anyone who may be interested
in helping out during the Conference in SLC. Regina will be spending some
(not all) of her time at the FHL, helping people recognize their family names and shtetlach >from the Cyrillic. Where possible, she will also translate individual records copied and brought to her on the spot.

It's a great opportunity. We need some volunteers to sit with her during her time in the library, to ensure that as many people as possible can consult with her, and that no one takes up an excessive amount of her time. If you are willing to give the SIG a block of your time - be it one, two or three hours - please respond to <litvaks@...>

Thanks in advance -

Necrologies #yizkorbooks

Susannah R. Juni <sjuni@...>
 

The dictionary definition of NECROLOGY is a register of deaths. In
a yizkor book it is the memorial section which lists the persons
from that town who were murdered in the Holocaust.
A bit more clarification: A necrology is a list of only the names that the
authors of the book thought of at the time that they put the book to
publication. It is not an official or complete registry. Virtually all of
these lists are far >from complete for any given town, so one should not
jump to any research conclusions based on the lack of a name in a necrology
for a town.

Not all Yizkor Books contain a necrology list per se. When they do, the
names are often listed alone, or sometimes with just the names and
relationships of the immediate family members (again, if remembered or
known by the authors of the book) who perished with them.

They are of genealogical value, but often mostly as a mere clue or as
corroborating evidence that a person lived in a town.

Re: Ruzhany #yizkorbooks

KGillespie <kgillespie@...>
 

Is this the same shettl as Pruzhany?

My family left that village in 1902, their name was Siegel (Abraham).

MODERATOR NOTE: I believe these are two different shtetlach, both in
Belarus. The Yizkor Book Project database lists them separately, with
different Yizkor books.

Le Havre, no passenger records #general

Micheline GUTMANN <MichelineGUTMANN@...>
 

from time to times, I receive the question of Le Havre records.
So, a few years ago, I wrote to the genealogical association
of le Havre and Seine maritime.

I received a definitive answer.

They were only doing a list of members of the French Navy
before the Revolution. They said that they have years of work
and they did not plan to do this work for all the passengers.

If such a source should be available, of course , I would have
written it on the Infofiles for French sources on Jewish Genealogy,

Re: SPEILGLASS #general

Colin Plen
 

Are you aware that Speil could also mean a mirror?
Colin Plen

From: Alfred A. Goldberg < alfran@... >
Subject: SPEILGLASS
For a cousin, I am seeking any info about a SPEILGLASS family. She
thinks that the family originated in Romania, with the name of SPEIL
(since his occupation pertained to glass, they believe that glass was
attached to his name) They then migrated to France. This must have
been in the very late 1800's. They then came to the USA in the very
early 1900's. The ones who stayed in France supposedly owned a rather
large Department Store.

Miriam (Minnie) Speilglass married Hyam or Chaim ORNSTEIN, and they had
7 children. The children's names were Sigmund, Sam, Harry, Anna, Lena,
Rose, and Jack. We know that Harry was born in America.

The first Cohain, Aaron, was a Levite.
If you know your tribe can you continue your research >from before
surnames?
I suppose it would help to a certain extent. It would be most helpful for
Cohanim.
