Anita Bonita <abonita@...>
 

I've posted a page >from the Ostrowiec Yizkor
Book, in Hebrew, for which I would like a translation, please.

It is on ViewMate at the following address ...
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM64712

I know it's a lot of copy -- but it's about my
great-grandfather, Avrum Leibush Steinhart (Abram

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Thank you very much.

Yizkor Book Project, February 2018 #austria-czech

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I am quite excited to let you know about the highlights of the Yizkor
Book Project during February 2018.

So why am I excited? Well, to begin we uploaded the final translations
of no less than three projects:

- Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine (Yekaterinoslav-Dnepropetrovsk Memorial Book).
This project was coordinated by Marilyn Levinson and an enormous amount
of thanks goes out to volunteers, Sara Mages and Yocheved Klausner, who
were responsible for translating the bulk of this book.
- Lenin, Belarus (The community of Lenin; memorial book). Sadly, the
coordinator of this project, Sanford A. Kaplan z"l, is no longer with us.
Over the years, both professional and volunteer translators contributed
to this project that he initiated and once again, Sara and Yocheved
played an integral role in seeing it through to its successful completion.
- Vishnevets, Ukraine (Memorial book to the martyrs of Vishnevets who
perished in the Nazi Holocaust) This project was coordinated by the
remarkable duo of Ellen Garshick and Ronald D. Doctor of the Kremenets
District Research Group. They already have a number of other completed
projects under their belt and we salute them for their dedication in
seeing yet another complete book become available online.

Last month, I would like to mention a number of new entries that have
been added in. Some of the entries concern the agricultural communities
that existed in the Ukraine at the beginning of the 19th century which
make for interesting and enlightening reading. In addition, I would also
like to point out an entry that was added about the Cluj District >from
the "Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Romania". This entry, in
particular, is of significance in that it covers quite a few small
communities >from that area, information about which is often difficult
to find.

I should also note the welcome contribution of Esther Weinschelbaum who
has voluntarily translated into Hebrew, the Yiddish sections >from the
Yizkor book of Wojslawice, Poland. This enables our Hebrew readers to
glean the information and the stories >from the parts of the book that
they would otherwise be unable to read and we thank Esther for the many
such translations she has provided for us.

Again, this past month, a new book was published by the Yizkor Book in
Print Project and they are deserving of our grateful thanks. The book,
"Memorial Book of Nowy-Dwor", is a translation of the Yizkor book of
Nowy Dwor Mazowiecki, Poland. The number of published books continues to
grow and as we complete projects, as we have done in the past month, they
join as possible candidates for publishing. We do see a growing interest
in having and holding these unique books and they are even a unique gift
idea for the coming Pesach/Passover holiday. If you are interested in
seeing what books are available for purchase, please see the link at the
end of this report.

Which reminds me, if we don't "speak" before then, I do wish you and your
families a very memorable, warm and significant Pesach/Passover holiday.

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

The Jewish Museum Eisenstadt updated their Souvenirs/Mitbringsel:

The Jewish cemetery of Abbazia / Opatija: Many Jewish families >from Hungary
or Austria lived or took a cure at the Austrian Riviera. And as with
Fiume, there are lots of names which we also know >from Budapest, Burgenland
and Vienna: Antonie BREINER and her Deutschkreutz-born husband Sigmund, who
ran two kosher hotels; Sigmund KURZ, the president of Abbazia's Jewish
community, married in Vienna and died in Abbazia at age 90; or the large
NADAS / NATHAN family: Bernard Nathan initiated the Holocaust memorial which
was inaugurated in 1955.
We have brought with us 44 photos of gravestones of Jewish families from
Abbazia and got to know their stories. And again, the Shoa is omnipresent:
In the index of persons there are 64 names of Jews who died in Abbazia and
the names of 52 Shoa victims (Livia LOEWY was only 4 years old, Berta
POLITZER was 88 years old).

Helena who married Gustav Schick.

I am searching for the marriage of Gustav and Helena...possibly in Kolin where her father

Researching Joseph GREGAR of Czechia and Upstate New York #rabbinic

Karen Schneider <kgschneider@...>
 

Hello Everyone,

I am researching my great grandfather Joseph GREGAR (Greger, Groger
with the umlaut o). Would love to learn more about Joseph and whether
he might have been self-taught, formally educated or if he was possibly
part of a rabbinical family line. I lack knowledge in this area and
hope to learn more.

I believe Joseph Gregar was born ca. 1834 in Horepnik, Czechia. Several
records say he was of Austrian descent. Joseph's father (Israel Groger)
and his grandfather (Abraham Groger) were both born in Horepnik. At
least one U.S. Census says Joseph's wife, Charlotte "Lottie" Popper was
born in Vienna, Austria although records indicate her father (Marcus
Popper) was born in Teresov, Czechia and her grandfather (Josef Popper)
in Lhota, Czechia.

Joseph and Lottie and their first 4 sons came to the U.S. in 1866 and
settled in Schenectady, New York. Joseph is listed in an 1868 directory
as an umbrella maker. A few years later he and his family relocated to
Amsterdam, NY where, according to Joseph's obituary, he "organized a
Hebrew Temple Society for which he was rabbi for a number of years".

A 1991 Amsterdam, NY newspaper article, giving the history of the Temple
of Israel of that city, says Joseph served as its first permanent rabbi
in May 1875 through 1887. This also mentioned in the online version of
the 1906 Jewish Encyclopedia.

The 1977 dedication book for Congregation Sons of Israel in Amsterdam,
NY, states that Joseph Gregar was engaged as their first spiritual
leader in 1887.

Joseph died 22 Apr 1897 and is buried in the Temple of Israel Cemetery
in Cranesville, NY. His gravestone translated >from Hebrew reads in part,
"Joseph Greger, here rests my father an upright and just man, neb Yossi
Greger, who died the 20th Nissan and was buried the 23rd Nissan..."

One of Joseph's sisters, Lena, also lived in Amsterdam and died in 1888.
Her gravestone translation reads: "Here rests a virtuous woman and
teacher, Mrs. Lea Greger, born in the sacred community of Hartzievnik..."
Another sister Mary Greger Popper married and remained in Prague. I have
never found a record of any brothers for Joseph Gregar.

Thank you in advance for any information or suggestions for further
research. Joseph's life certainly seems to have been one of faith and
service and I hope to someday learn more about him and how that came to be.

Langsam, Miller & Spira Family from Galicia #galicia

Dear GG Group,

I have been exploring my Miller line for a couple of decades. My
paternal family originates with Pesach Langsam (born in the middle
1700's) of Jawornik Polski. Please see my website at
www.langsam.com for more detail on Pesach and his progeny.

Several cousins (some of whom are GG members) have been working
on Pesach Langsam and his ancestry for even longer than me. To
date, no one can conclusively take his ancestry back any further.

I would like to encourage any men with paternal Langsam, Spira or
Miller ancestry to consider testing their Y-DNA. In this way, you and I
can try to go back further in time.

Thank you,
