Yizkor Book Project, February 2014 #lodz #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Although February is a notoriously short month, I was pleased to see great
progress made in a number of aspects of the Yizkor Book Project.

To begin with, I am pleased to inform you that during the last month, a
further project joined the ranks of fully completed translations. This time
we saw the culmination of the Grajewo project and I would like to thank the
coordinators, Shelly Levin and Evelyn Fine, for their caring and dedication
in leading this project through its successful completion. On the horizon,
there are a number of other projects that are close to the end and suggest
you follow coming reports for similar announcements.

February also saw the addition of new Translation Funds which have been
set up to allow people interested in financially supporting the professional
translation of the following Yizkor books.

- Sosnove (Ludvipol), Ukraine
- Telsiai (Telz), Lithuania

If you are able to support any of these projects or any of the 75 listed
Translation funds listed here:

http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23

you would be doing something very practical and important to allow us to
make these books and the treasures they contain, available to researchers
worldwide and keep the memories of these communities alive.

Lastly, I would like to note our Yizkor Book in Print Project which recently
added a further volume to its continually growing library of English
translations of our Yizkor book projects.

- Shards of Memory: Messages >from the Lost Shtetl of Antopol, Belarus -
Translation of the Yizkor (Memorial) Book of the Jewish Community of Antopol

In addition, the following book will be available for purchase in the
nearest future:

- Yizkor (Memorial) Book of Lyubcha and Delyatichi - Translation of Lubtch
ve-Delatitch; Sefer Zikaron

As I've noted before, I quite often receive queries regarding available
books and for those of you who are interested, a full list of the published
books appears at: http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html

Now to facts and figures for February.

http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23

you would be doing something very practical and important to allow us to
make these books and the treasures they contain, available to researchers
worldwide and keep the memories of these communities alive.

Lastly, I would like to note our Yizkor Book in Print Project which recently
added a further volume to its continually growing library of English
translations of our Yizkor book projects.

- Shards of Memory: Messages >from the Lost Shtetl of Antopol, Belarus -
Translation of the Yizkor (Memorial) Book of the Jewish Community of Antopol

In addition, the following book will be available for purchase in the
nearest future:

- Yizkor (Memorial) Book of Lyubcha and Delyatichi - Translation of Lubtch
ve-Delatitch; Sefer Zikaron

As I've noted before, I quite often receive queries regarding available
books and for those of you who are interested, a full list of the published
books appears at: http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Although February is a notoriously short month, I was pleased to see great
progress made in a number of aspects of the Yizkor Book Project.

To begin with, I am pleased to inform you that during the last month, a
further project joined the ranks of fully completed translations. This time
we saw the culmination of the Grajewo project and I would like to thank the
coordinators, Shelly Levin and Evelyn Fine, for their caring and dedication
in leading this project through its successful completion. On the horizon,
there are a number of other projects that are close to the end and suggest
you follow coming reports for similar announcements.

February also saw the addition of new Translation Funds which have been
set up to allow people interested in financially supporting the professional
translation of the following Yizkor books.

- Sosnove (Ludvipol), Ukraine
- Telsiai (Telz), Lithuania

If you are able to support any of these projects or any of the 75 listed
Translation funds listed here:

Re: Vanished Town in Poland? #poland

Sounds like Buchach in East Galicia to me.
from the Middle Ages until 1772, it was in Poland.
from 1772 to 1918 it was in Galicia in the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
Between the wars it was in Poland.
from 1945 to 1991 it was in the USSR, and now it is in Ukraine - but
maybe not for much longer...
During WWI and WWII, without going into too much detail, it was fought over.

New Features on Ukraine SIG Town Pages #ukraine

Chuck Weinstein <cmw521@...>
 

Working with Anna Royzner in Ukraine, and our talented team at Ukraine SIG,
we have added audio files of the pronunciation in both Ukrainian and Russian
for each town covered by Ukraine SIG. In addition, thanks to some hard work
on the part of Ella Mintsys, in Ivano-Frankivsk, Ukraine, we have also
added the Russian and Ukrainian spellings of each town, as well. Special
thanks to our webmaster extraordinaire, Ariel Parkansky, who added the
material, and to Cindy Potter Taylor who suggested the idea. If there is
anyone out there who can help us with Yiddish pronunciation and spelling, we
would be delighted to speak with you.

If you have not taken a moment to look at your Town's page at Ukraine SIG
recently, please do so. We have a number of projects that are "shovel
ready", needing only volunteers to help us get more records into our Ukraine
SIG JewishGen database. If you have said in the past, "why are there so few
records on Ukraine SIG?", here is your opportunity to help us rectify it.
We never have too many volunteers. In addition, please check out our
projects that are currently in the fundraising stage at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat".
Your JewishGen-erosity can help us acquire more records and translations
to help all of us research our family histories.

Thanks to all of you who have already been so generous!

MODERATOR NOTE:
Please note especially the references in Lance's message to Kolomyya,
Ozerna, Stryy, and Tlumach, Ukraine -- towns that were once in Galicia.

Shalom,

Although February is a notoriously short month, I was pleased to see
great progress made in a number of aspects of the Yizkor Book Project.

To begin with, I am pleased to inform you that during the last month,
a further project joined the ranks of fully completed translations. This
time we saw the culmination of the Grajewo project and I would like to
thank the coordinators, Shelly Levin and Evelyn Fine, for their caring
and dedication in leading this project through its successful completion.
On the horizon, there are a number of other projects that are close to
the end and suggest you follow coming reports for similar
announcements.

February also saw the addition of 3 new Translation Funds which have
been set up to allow people interested in financially supporting the
professional translation of the following Yizkor books.

- Ostrów Mazowiecka, Poland
- Sosnove (Ludvipol), Ukraine
- Telsiai (Telz), Lithuania

If you are able to support any of these projects or any of the 75 listed
Translation funds listed here:

http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23

you would be doing something very practical and important to allow us
to make these books and the treasures they contain, available to
researchers worldwide and keep the memories of these communities
alive.

Lastly, I would like to note our Yizkor Book in Print Project which
recently added a further volume to its continually growing library of
English translations of our Yizkor book projects.

- Shards of Memory: Messages >from the Lost Shtetl of Antopol,
Belarus -Translation of the Yizkor (Memorial) Book of the Jewish
Community of Antopol

In addition, the following book will be available for purchase in the
nearest future:

- Yizkor (Memorial) Book of Lyubcha and Delyatichi - Translation of
Lubtch ve-Delatitch; Sefer Zikaron

As I've noted before, I quite often receive queries regarding available
books and for those of you who are interested, a full list of the
published books appears at:

Now to facts and figures for February.

Shalom,

Although February is a notoriously short month, I was pleased to see great
progress made in a number of aspects of the Yizkor Book Project.

To begin with, I am pleased to inform you that during the last month, a
further project joined the ranks of fully completed translations. This time
we saw the culmination of the Grajewo project and I would like to thank the
coordinators, Shelly Levin and Evelyn Fine, for their caring and dedication
in leading this project through its successful completion. On the horizon,
there are a number of other projects that are close to the end and suggest
you follow coming reports for similar announcements.

February also saw the addition of 3 new Translation Funds which have been
set up to allow people interested in financially supporting the professional
translation of the following Yizkor books.

- Ostrów Mazowiecka, Poland
- Sosnove (Ludvipol), Ukraine
- Telsiai (Telz), Lithuania

If you are able to support any of these projects or any of the 75 listed
Translation funds listed here:

http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23

you would be doing something very practical and important to allow us to
make these books and the treasures they contain, available to researchers
worldwide and keep the memories of these communities alive.

Lastly, I would like to note our Yizkor Book in Print Project which recently
added a further volume to its continually growing library of English
translations of our Yizkor book projects.

- Shards of Memory: Messages >from the Lost Shtetl of Antopol, Belarus -
Translation of the Yizkor (Memorial) Book of the Jewish Community of Antopol

In addition, the following book will be available for purchase in the
nearest future:

- Yizkor (Memorial) Book of Lyubcha and Delyatichi - Translation of Lubtch
ve-Delatitch; Sefer Zikaron

As I've noted before, I quite often receive queries regarding available
books and for those of you who are interested, a full list of the published
books appears at: http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html
