Dear Jewish Genealogy Enthusiasts,

With the guidance of Robinn Magid, 2018 International Association of
Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) Warsaw Conference Co-Chair, I am
pleased to announce the opening of two moderated "closed" Facebook
groups to keep you informed and up-to-date about the 2018 IAJGS Warsaw
Conference (August 5-10, 2018). A "closed" group means that the
content of postings is only accessible to group members. Please join
these groups on Facebook as members in order to benefit and share
information to plan your conference/summer experience.

The Facebook groups are:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/IAJGS/
2018 IAJGS Warsaw Conference - the online meeting place to share
conference announcements and bulletin board for genealogists to share
information and questions about the upcoming IAJGS conference in
Warsaw.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/KosherSIG/
Kosher SIG - the online meeting place to share information and ask
questions regarding Kosher food and minyanim opportunities at IAJGS
conferences.

Leora Tec and I will moderate the Warsaw Conference Facebook group,
and Lara Diamond will be moderate the Kosher SIG Facebook group.

I will be submitting occasional IAJGS conference-related announcements
to this listserv for informational purposes only. Please direct all
your questions and discussion pertinent to these topics to the new
Facebook groups.

JewishGen resources played an important role in these three
inspirational stories. You can access these accounts >from the "About
Us" button on our website or by following this link:
http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgen/testimonials/

**Meyer Denn reminds us that time is running out for parents and
children and brothers and sisters who were torn apart by the Holocaust
to be reunited. He tells the story of a little girl who was placed in
an orphanage in Russia in 1941, the father who never stopped searching
for her, and the cousins who reunited the family after 75 years.

**Paul Howard had successfully researched the family history for his
adoptive family, the only family he knew. When he learns that adoption
records were being made available to adoptees in Ontario, he sets off
on a quest to learn about his biological roots.

**Peter Vanlaw knew little about his actress cousin Eva Baruch.
Through his research, Peter learns about Eva's fascinating life,
including her narrow escapes >from Germany to Shanghai in 1938, from
Shanghai to Australia in 1941 only days before the Japanese closed off
the city, and >from East Berlin to the West just before the East
Germans erected the wall.

JewishGen volunteers (Editor - Nancy Siegel and Webmaster - Colin
Mathias Justin) collect and post these stories. We encourage you to
submit your own success stories to us at success@lyris.jewishgen.org .

Yizkor Book Project, September 2017 #ciechanow #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

During the period of the High Holidays, many of us were quite busy in
many other directions and still are, as it happens, as we enter the
first days of Sukkot. I believe that as these holidays are frequently
family occasions, our thoughts often return to our roots, thinking
about the families >from our past, contemplating about how these holidays
were celebrated a generation or so ago.

This, in my opinion, is where the Yizkor books come in, providing us
with an unparalleled insight into how, in the past, these holidays were
celebrated in the various communities. The Yizkor books, in addition,
provide us with unique information about all aspects of these
communities. The problem? The stories and the information in these books
are in languages not all of us know to read - mainly, Yiddish and Hebrew.
It is here that the Yizkor Book Project comes into play, unravelling the
text by translating it into English. Of course, we also translate into
other languages to also allow non-English readers access to this
material. This past month, for instance, we added in translations into
Hebrew of the Yiddish articles >from the Przytyk Yizkor book, kindly
presented to us by Esther Weinschelbaum.

It should be noted that all the material in the Yizkor Book site is
made freely available worldwide but in order to undertake the
translations in the first place, we do need the financial support to
pay for their professional translation. We are continually looking for
such support in order to continue our mission and if you are able to
assist, to any degree, to one of Translation funds, a link is provided
at the end of this report to the list of projects. Your donation will
not only benefit you and your family but also so many others with roots
in the same communities.

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

We have added in a two new books:

Tarnow Jewish Cemetery restoration and transcription projects #galicia

Howard Fink
 

Now that the long-awaited Tarnow Jewish Cemetery restoration project is
about to formally start I would like to provide details that have not been
made public while agreements were being finalized by the project
consortium.

There are several parts to this major project, overseen by Adam Bartosz,
the long-time Chairman of The Committee for Protection of Jewish
Heritage in Tarnow. Work on the restoration of the cemetery grounds is
already taking place under his direction, and a sample number of
gravestones were photographed and indexed last year by Professor
Leszek Hondo of Jagiellonian University and the Antyschematy
Foundation. Funding is >from a combination of public donations and a
European Community Grant.

I am pleased to announce that the photographing and transcription of the
thousands of gravestones will be carried out by the prestigious
Foundation for Documentation of Jewish Cemeteries (FDJC), a key
partner in the Tarnow Cemetery project. JRI-Poland has been keeping up
with the development of this project through our close cooperation with
the FDJC co-founder, Witold Wrzosinski. For Mr. Wrzosinski's remarks on
the importance of our collaboration, please see:
http://cemetery.jewish.org.pl/page/p_sponsors

The FDJC will index and photograph every legible grave marker in the
cemetery, including those already included in the sample project. The EU
grant requires that a single organization perform this work on the entire
site in a consistent manner.

JRI-Poland has collaborated with The Foundation since 2014 to make
their data available to the widest audience as well as to utilize the
multi-faceted JRI-Poland search engine options to dramatically increase
the potential for finding gravestones of interest to researchers. The
personal details in the JRI-Poland search results will include a link
directly to The Foundation's high quality images, which will include GPS
location information.

The data >from the Tarnow Cemetery will be added to both The
Foundation's and JRI-Poland's databases in late 2018.

You can read more details about earlier projects of the FDJC on our
website:

Dear Jewish Genealogy Enthusiasts,

With the guidance of Robinn Magid, 2018 International Association of
Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) Warsaw Conference Co-Chair, I
am pleased to announce the opening of two moderated "closed"
Facebook groups to keep you informed and up-to-date about the 2018
IAJGS Warsaw Conference (August 5-10, 2018). A "closed" group
means that the content of postings is only accessible to group
members. Please join these groups on Facebook as members in order
to benefit and share information to plan your conference/summer
experience.

The Facebook groups are:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/IAJGS/
2018 IAJGS Warsaw Conference - the online meeting place to share
conference announcements and bulletin board for genealogists to
share information and questions about the upcoming IAJGS
conference in Warsaw.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/KosherSIG/
Kosher SIG - the online meeting place to share information and ask
questions regarding Kosher food and minyanim opportunities at IAJGS
conferences.

Leora Tec and I will moderate the Warsaw Conference Facebook group,
and Lara Diamond will be moderate the Kosher SIG Facebook group.

I will be submitting occasional IAJGS conference-related
announcements to this listserv for informational purposes only. Please
direct all your questions and discussion pertinent to these topics to
the new Facebook groups.

Do widzenia; l'hitraot; see you later, in Warsaw!
