This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake <bruce.drake@...>
 

Some of the saddest and most poignant accounts in Yizkor books are from
people who returned to their towns after the war in the late 1940s and the
1950s to see what had become of the destroyed Jewish communities. That is
the story of Lippe Fischer who left Jezierna (Ozerna) in western Ukraine,
just west of Ternopil, days before the German approach. She joined refugees
fleeing to the South Caucasus and was arrested when she fell into the trap
of Turkmen, in league with the Soviet NKVD, who promised to smuggle her and
others across the border to Persia for a few hundred rubles. Fischer spent
10 years in a Soviet prison camp. On her release, she was determined to
return home. This is an excerpt >from a much longer chapter that you can find

Re: Naming a child after deceased relative #general

Yoni Ben-Ari in "Naming a child after deceased relative" (January 19, 2017)
suggests, or perhaps warns, that naming a child after a relative who died at
an early age is an ill-taken choice.

The 1930-1945 NYC Marriage Index images are now online, and more to come soon #general

Asparagirl <asparagirl@...>
 

Did your family get hitched in New York City?

Reclaim The Records has started uploading the newly-scanned images of
the 110 microfilms that we won in our 2016 court settlement with the
New York City Clerk's Office. These images are of handwritten index
ledgers of marriage license applications for all five boroughs of New
York City for 1930-1972. They're broken down by borough/county and by
year, and then alphabetical by surname.

There are 176,136 brand new images in total, so this is going to take
quite a while to upload. So far, we've uploaded the images for
1930-1945 to the Internet Archive (archive.org), and the other years
will be going online bit by bit over the next few months.

Direct links to each of these 1930-1945(ish) files for each
borough/county are in our latest e-mail newsletter:
http://us11.campaign-archive1.com/?u=5f700fdc65a51d3813e67dab2&id=c75a965179
[ TinyURL: https://tinyurl.com/zc9b8p4 ]

If you find a name of interest, you can write away for a copy of that
person's marriage license/application/affidavit >from either the NYC
Municipal Archives (1949 and earlier) or the New York City Clerk's
Office (1950 and later). These marriage license files are open to the
public if they're more than fifty years old, and they have a wealth of
information.

These are *not* the same records as the two-page NYC Health Department
marriage certificates that have been microfilmed by FamilySearch;
those only go up through 1937 and they don't have quite as much
information.

Note that some people who got married in New York City may have
applied for their license in a nearby county, like Westchester or
Nassau, and so those people wouldn't be in this data set; this data
only covers *applications* filed in New York City, not *marriages
conducted in* New York City.

Enjoy!

Is it possible to unseal a birth record in NYC? #general

boris
 

A distant relative who, I always thought, was born in the US, reveled
recently that she was adopted by a stepfather because her birth father
never made it out of the Soviet Union. The time period is 1945-1947.

I've been told that it is possible to unseal a birth record if there
is a court order.

Has anybody obtained a sealed record before?

Thank you!

Hi All,

A big thank you to all who took the trouble to help me and solve the
mystery, with the location of the town listed on the document as
Mazarowka.

Several people sent me the same information, a consensus.

It is located within a few miles of the area where most of that side of

JewishGen Success! Stories - January edition #warsaw #poland

Phyllis Kramer
 

We bring you three success stories that are sure to inspire. These
accounts bring us to Australia, South Africa, Israel, Poland, Germany,
Scotland, Belarus, Czech Republic, Austria, France, and more. You can
access these stories >from the "About Us" button on our website or by
following this link: http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen/Testimonials/

Eli Rabinowitz was named after his great-uncle who had tragically died
in an accident when he was a young man. That was all Eli knew, until a
connection made through JewishGen's Family Finder and an old 1920
school photo >from Poland given to him by his aunt prompted his journey
to solve the mystery of Moshe Rabinowitz.

Martin Tompa and Siva German connected via JewishGen's AustriaCzech
SIG mailing list when they discovered they were both researching the
Schueck family. By working together, they uncovered their common
great-great-grandparents and found the birth records of their
great-grandparents.

from our Archives, we bring you, again, a very moving story by Michael
Tobias, with Meredith Hoffman, about the reunion of cousins Moniek
Garber of Glasgow, Scotland, and Moshe Porat-Perelman of Kfar Saba,
Israel, who had last seen one another in the early spring of 1940.
They were joyously reunited, thanks to JewishGen, sixty-seven years
later, in 2007.

This issue was prepared by JewishGen volunteers -- Nancy Siegel, Editor
and our new Success! Stories Webmaster, Colin Mathias Justin. We hope
that you, too, will have success in your research using the abundant
resources of JewishGen and we encourage you to submit your own success
stories to us at: success@lyris.jewishgen.org

Yizkor Book Project, December 2016 #warsaw #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

If I do say, the past month and, in fact, the last year was a remarkable one
for the Yizkor Book Project and I would like to outline just a little of our
"remarkableness":

To begin with, we completed no fewer than three translation projects just in
this past month and they were:

- Briceni, Moldova (Brichany: its Jewry in the first half of our century)
which was enthusiastically coordinated in recent times by Roberta Jaffer and
in the past by Carol Monosson Edan and Carla Brauer-Lalezari. I do send out
my appreciation to them all for seeing this project through to its
successful completion.

- Golub-Dobrzyn, Poland (In Memory of the Communities Dobrzyn-Gollob) which
was for the most part, translated by the coordinator himself - Allen
Flusberg - and he does deserve our appreciation for his untiring dedication
to seeing this completely translated.

- Ostrow-Mazowiecka, Poland (Ostrow Mazowiecka) which is the second
completed project we have of this community. In this case, it was ably
coordinated by Michael Richman who was driving force behind this outstanding
project.

So, we now have 126 projects online but we certainly aren't sitting on our
laurels and in coming reports, I do anticipate that I will be able to
announce further such successes.

The complete translation of a book allows us, where appropriate, to go on to
the next stage of passing the translation on to the Yizkor Book in Print
Project. They, in turn, carry out their magic and the publish it as a
hard-cover book. So, I am pleased to announce that last month a further
translated Yizkor Book has hit the presses - "The Life and Destruction of
Olshan" which is a complete translation of the Gol'shany, Belarus Yizkor
book. This now makes 53 titles that have been published by the YBIP Project
and made available to the public - a most commendable effort, I must say.

A further piece of encouraging news that I have to report is that in
December additional records were added to our Yizkor Book Main Name Index -
a database whose goal is to list the names appearing in the various Yizkor
books and serves as a very useful research tool. It is no easy task to
prepare such a database and I was grateful to Linda Richman for taking on
the coordination of this project which had been "orphaned" over a period.
With her enthusiasm and help >from her small team, she has allowed us to add
in 20,000 names into the database during 2016 and I do send out my sincere
thanks to Linda and her team for their commendable effort.

Finally, I must thank Max Heffler and his Necrology Database team for adding
in an additional 5,000+ plus names during 2016. This database includes the
names of the victims appearing in the various Yizkor book necrologies and,
once again, provides a useful and unique tool for researchers and as such,
we do appreciate the efforts that go into preparing this database.


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

We have added in 2 new books:

- Ostrow-Mazowiecka, Poland (Ostrow Mazowiecka)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ostrow1/ostrow1.html

- Ozarow, Poland (Memories of Ozarow)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Ozarow/Ozarow.html


We have also added in 8 new entries:

- Bol'shoy Zhelutsk, Ukraine (Memorial book for the towns of Old Rafalowka,
New Rafalowka, Olizarka, Zoludzk and vicinity)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Rafalovka/raf287.html

- Charsznica, Poland (Miechov Memorial Book, Charsznica and Ksiaz)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Miechow/Mie223.html

- Dolny Kubin, Slovakia (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Slovakia)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/pinkas_slovakia/slo138.html

- Luninyets, Belarus (Memorial book of Luniniec / Kozhanhorodok)

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

If I do say, the past month and, in fact, the last year was a remarkable one
for the Yizkor Book Project and I would like to outline just a little of our
"remarkableness":

To begin with, we completed no fewer than three translation projects just in
this past month and they were:

- Briceni, Moldova (Brichany: its Jewry in the first half of our century)
which was enthusiastically coordinated in recent times by Roberta Jaffer and
in the past by Carol Monosson Edan and Carla Brauer-Lalezari. I do send out
my appreciation to them all for seeing this project through to its
successful completion.

- Golub-Dobrzyn, Poland (In Memory of the Communities Dobrzyn-Gollob) which
was for the most part, translated by the coordinator himself - Allen
Flusberg - and he does deserve our appreciation for his untiring dedication
to seeing this completely translated.

- Ostrow-Mazowiecka, Poland (Ostrow Mazowiecka) which is the second
completed project we have of this community. In this case, it was ably
coordinated by Michael Richman who was driving force behind this outstanding
project.

So, we now have 126 projects online but we certainly aren't sitting on our
laurels and in coming reports, I do anticipate that I will be able to
announce further such successes.

The complete translation of a book allows us, where appropriate, to go on to
the next stage of passing the translation on to the Yizkor Book in Print
Project. They, in turn, carry out their magic and the publish it as a
hard-cover book. So, I am pleased to announce that last month a further
translated Yizkor Book has hit the presses - "The Life and Destruction of
Olshan" which is a complete translation of the Gol'shany, Belarus Yizkor
book. This now makes 53 titles that have been published by the YBIP Project
and made available to the public - a most commendable effort, I must say.

A further piece of encouraging news that I have to report is that in
December additional records were added to our Yizkor Book Main Name Index -
a database whose goal is to list the names appearing in the various Yizkor
books and serves as a very useful research tool. It is no easy task to
prepare such a database and I was grateful to Linda Richman for taking on
the coordination of this project which had been "orphaned" over a period.
With her enthusiasm and help >from her small team, she has allowed us to add
in 20,000 names into the database during 2016 and I do send out my sincere
thanks to Linda and her team for their commendable effort.

Finally, I must thank Max Heffler and his Necrology Database team for adding
in an additional 5,000+ plus names during 2016. This database includes the
names of the victims appearing in the various Yizkor book necrologies and,
once again, provides a useful and unique tool for researchers and as such,
we do appreciate the efforts that go into preparing this database.


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