If you're considering a visit to your ancestral town this spring, summer or
fall, and will also be visiting the local cemetery, please consider taking
photos of the remaining headstones for submission to JewishGen's JOWBR
database. As you know, JewishGen's goal is to preserve genealogical
information for future generations and virtually preserving headstones,
especially if they include Hebrew patronymic names, is incredibly valuable
to researchers.

Please check our current Cemetery Inventory at
https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/ to see if we already have any
data or photos for a particular cemetery and the date the last update was
done.no point duplicating work. Information on making submissions can be
found at https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Submit.htm
We request that submissions include complete, or near complete cemeteries,
not just family stones.

Yizkor Book Project, April 2018 #ciechanow #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I am always impressed and encouraged to see progress being made in our
various translation projects. Some of the progress is small and some
is more significant but all bring these projects closer and closer to
their ultimate aim of completely translating the Yizkor Books and
placing the translations online for the benefit of many.

We are so fortunate to have a number of dedicated people who do all
the work behind the scenes of the Yizkor Book Project. Be it
encouraging funding, being in contact with our professional
translators or seeking out the assistance of volunteer translators to
help advance the projects. Without these wonderful people, I would
have nothing to report and believe me, the activities of last month do
provide me with a great deal to report.

Something important to report, for instance, were a number of new
books have been published last month through the auspices of the
Yizkor Books in Print Project. The books that came out in April were
firstly, for Karelichy, Belarus - "Korelitz: The Life and Destruction
of a Jewish Community" and, secondly, "Pan Kapitan of Jordanow",
dealing with the rescue of Jewish children during the Holocaust period
by Yeshayahu Drucker, AKA "Pan Kapitan". A link leading to the details
of these and the other published books may be found at the end of this
report.

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

We have added in 11 new entries:

photos of the remaining headstones for submission to JewishGen's JOWBR
database. As you know, JewishGen's goal is to preserve genealogical
information for future generations and virtually preserving headstones,
especially if they include Hebrew patronymic names, is incredibly valuable
to researchers.

Please check our current Cemetery Inventory at
https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/ to see if we already have any
data or photos for a particular cemetery and the date the last update was
done.no point duplicating work. Information on making submissions can be
found at https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Submit.htm
We request that submissions include complete, or near complete cemeteries,
not just family stones.

If you have any questions, please contact me at mailto:NAltman@jewishgen.org
