1858 Jubarkas Revision List #lithuania

elani.joseph@...
 

Hi all,
I am trying to prove a connection between my 3rd great grandmother Leah Sundelowitz (1836-1917) and the Zundelevich's/ Zundel's of Jubarkas/Yurburg. In her husband's siddur her first two sons were born in Gorgenburg which is the German equivalent of the town also since her husband was from Sakiai I am assuming this was her home town as the groom usually married in the bride's town in those days. She moved to the united states in 1869 and moved to Rushville, Indiana where her son Will/William was born. Back in Jubarkas there was a Zalkind Zev Zundel (died 1848) who may have been her father as Zev can mean Wolf which can mean Will in English. The only way I can confirm this is probably through the 1858 revision list which is currently not online for Jubarkas. Does anyone know if it is being translated or was it destroyed? 

Thank you for your time, Elani Joseph

Re: Heimatschein from Vienna #austria-czech

Eva Lawrence
 

As Martin Tompa explained, the Heimatschein is a certificate giving the bearer the right ot reside in a community. An electoral register is something different. Its existence implies that the community is governed as an elected body,  and further that the person listed is empowered to  chose the members of that body.  In modern terms that's what citizenship means, and the criteris for voting vary from country to country. .  Austria became a republic after 1918,  but I am pretty certain that a 17-year-old wouldn't have been entitled to vote. .

Cemetery Photographing - Mt. Golda, Huntington, Long Island, NY, USA - Sunday October 18th #announcements #events #usa

Bonnie Birns
 

On October 18, 2020, JGSLI will be participating in a project to photograph all the headstones at Mt. Golda and the Huntington Jewish Center Cemeteries in Huntington Station, Long Island. The plan is to meet at the Mt. Golda cemetery at 11 AM. The cemetery is neatly laid out by burial societies, so volunteers would walk the rows, taking pictures of every stone. There are approximately 10,000 headstones at the two cemeteries, so if we can get at least 30 volunteers, we hope to be able to finish the project in one day.

Your packing list should include: drinking water, sunscreen, hat and gloves, bug spray, hand wipes, camera, garden shears, comfortable shoes and socks.

Once we have photographed all the headstones, we will record all the burials into a database and contribute it to JewishGen’s JOWBR (JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry) project. For more information, please contact us at cemetery_project@.... Rain date is November 15.

Looking for Vselyub Cemetery, Michael Lozman, David Rosen #belarus

kdomeshek@...
 

The Jewish cemetery in Vselyub (Wsielub, near Nowogrudek, cemetery ID: BEL-03452), along with the synagogue, still stands.  In 2006, US Catholic students paid their own way to Belarus and did a wonderful mitzvah...they restored the cemetery and made rubbings of the headstones.  On behalf of two and possibly three families whose ancestors rest in that cemetery, I am trying to contact whomever has the headstone rubbings and photographs.  Vselyub does not have a Kehila website.  However, there is reference on JGen that Michael Lozman and David Rosen have some of the cemetery records.  Does anyone know how to reach these researchers? 

Chag Sameach.

Dear Risa,

It’s great to hear from you after all this time.  I’ll write to you privately to catch up with events of the last two decades.  In the meantime, to respond to your question: I am not directly involved with Jewish Tour but I will pass on your question to the owner, Natalie Bermont, and suggest a revision to the firm’s website.  The site as, it is, does, however, provide a lot of useful information about Jewish heritage in Belarus. I was brought into connexion with Jewish tour by the Israeli Ambassador to Belarus.

Thanks again for writing.

Best regards from Galina and me,

 

Frank Swartz

Re: 1812 German Citizenship Papers #records #germany

Gerald and Margaret
 

I'm so pleased I noticed this conversation. - I found 3 of my ancestors on that  " Official Journal of the Royal Court of Breslau", which you say is granting citizenship to some of its Jewish population. 

Moses Bernard SCHLESINGER (Number 3089) lived in Langendorf !

The other two are:-  1128 Philipp GRAUPNER of BEUTHEN and 1542Jacob Israel HIRSCHMANN of  ?-efrendberg , plus 1543Ruben Israel HIRSCHMANN , , presumably a son or brother.  

Can anyone tell me more about granting citizenship to Jews at that time?

Yizkor Book Report for September 2020 #yizkorbooks #JewishGenUpdates

lackerfeld@...
 

Shalom,

During September, in the periods between the High Holidays, we saw a great deal of intensive activity within the Yizkor Book Project. Still, please understand that I am far from complaining, as the high interest and willingness to be involved in the YB Project is the “fuel” that keeps us going.

 

Looking over recently updated translation projects, I saw that quite a few of them are just a hair's breadth away from being completed and I’m quite certain that next month’s report will bear witness to this.

 

This time, for instance, I’m pleased to inform you that the Rivne, Ukraine book Rowno; a memorial to the Jewish community of Rowno, Volin  is now completely translated. This project was, over the years, dedicatedly led by Ann Goldberg and it recently received some additional support from Anita Gabbay who assisted in seeing its successful completion. We owe a debt of gratitude to Ann and Anita for the time and  efforts they placed into achieving this worthy goal.

Quite frequently, and especially after my monthly reports go out, I receive messages from people wishing to see the English translation of a particular Yizkor book. Often, upon checking, I find that we do have a project set up for the book but, unfortunately, no one has ever stepped forward to take on this translation project.

From my experience and the feedback I receive from coordinators, a great deal of satisfaction is achieved from taking on such a translations project, seeing it take shape and, of course, the greatest satisfaction is when the project is successfully completed. So the moral of the story is that if you find that the Yizkor book with connections to your family doesn’t have an active coordinator, please be in contact with me and I’ll go through with you what is involved in taking such a project and it’s something that may only involve a couple of hours a month.

It is clear that the translation of the Yizkor books provides us with an insight into the families and communities that have been lost forever. It is also a legacy that we can pass on down to future generations, so these memories will not be lost.

Anyway, let’s look at what we have accomplished over September 2020.


New book

Whilst the Yizkor Project already includes around 1,000 translation projects, from time to time, we are fortunate to receive the opportunity to set up a project for a book that has yet to be added to our collection.

So, this past month we setup a project for:

Rypin, Poland (Rypin; a memorial to the Jewish Community of Rypin-Poland)

 

Initially, we have placed the English section online but we do have plans to expand the project further.

What we would like is someone to take on this project and coordinate the translation of this book. If your family came from this community and you are out for a challenge, as explained above, please be in contact with
me.

 

 

New Translation Fund

The translation of a Yizkor Book generally involves a considerable monetary outlay and we set up these Translation Funds so that all those people interested in seeing a particular book translated, can contribute as much as they are comfortable with in a combined effort to see the book translated. Note that for US citizens, donations to these funds are tax deductible.


This past month, one such fund was set up:

 

  • Wysokie-Mazowieckie, Poland The “Wysokie-Mazowieckie; Memorial Book” was coordinated in the past by  Ada Holtzman z”l and  Sandy Levin  has arranged for the fund to be setup to enable further translations of this book to be carried out. If you have interest in this community, your financial support to this project would be very welcome.

 

New entries


The following are the new entries that have been placed online during September 2020.
