Yizkor Book Project, May 2019 #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I will start off by noting that this will probably be my last Yizkor
Book monthly report. I will be shortly stepping down as Yizkor Book
Project Manager and my place will be taken over by Binny Lewis. Having
being involved in this project >from around 1999 and leading it >from
2009, it would seem the time is ripe for me to allow someone with new
ideas and energy to take on the project. In the meantime, I will still
be around to help Binny acclimatize to the tasks involved.

I would sincerely like to thank each and every person who has
contributed in some way to the continued success of the Yizkor Book
Project. I am perpetually in awe of the willingness of people to devote
their time and energy to help out in some way to move the various
projects along. I am quite sure that Binny will continue to receive
the same level of support and dedication which will enable the project
to further grow and develop.

As a parting "gift", I am pleased to let you know that the complete
translation of the Wyzkow, Poland Yizkor book is now online. Our
grateful thanks go out to Howard Orenstein who has led this project
from its outset and has untiringly followed through with this project
to its ultimate goal.

Other than that, I would like to note that a number of new Translation
Projects have recently been setup for the books of the following
communities:

- Augustow, Poland
- Skalat, Ukaine
- Zinkiv, Ukraine

The support we need to see these books translated is, naturally,
financial and if you are able to assist in that direction with any
amount, please make your donation on our JewishGen-erosity page (link
below) to the project you wish to support.

Now, before letting you know about the updates and additions, I do wish
you and your families a Shavuot Sameach or a Happy Shavuot.

LDS scans of PSA records again viewable in Family History Centers #germany

Nicole Heymans
 

Following a recent spot check on FamilySearch, I noticed the "camera
and key" icon has reappeared for a number of LDS films of vital
records held in the Polish State Archives. This icon means the scans
can again be viewed in LDS Family History Centers and Affiliated
libraries; since last November, these films were viewable only in Salt
Lake City or in a few libraries who happened to have kept the film
rolls.

I did not check availability systematically, and only for a few
communities in Posen Province; all checks were positive. I strongly
suggest checking your favourite film's status before setting off for
your nearest FHC.

mysterious siblings #germany

Lin Herz
 

Hi GerSIG Friends,

I have recently found evidence proving there were 3 heretofore
unknown siblings of my grandfather who were born in Markt Berolzheim,
Bavaria, in the late 1800s.

I am trying to find the birth and death certificates of one of the
children, Sofi LEVI, born probably around 1890 to Mathilde LEVI geb.
HERZ and Leopold LEVI, and the death certificate of her brother, Isidor
LEVI, who was born in 1893. They and another previously known sibling,
Leo LEVI born in 1898 were never mentioned to my mother, born in 1925 by
her father or any of his siblings.


Isidor and Sofi appear on a list of Levi children >from Markt
Berolzheim sent to the Jewish orphanage in Fuerth in 1901 when their
mother, my great grandmother, died. Leo and Sofi also appear in a list
my grandfather made in 1926 of family members buried in the nearby
Jewish cemetery in Treuchtlingen. However, Sofi's birth and death
certificates are not in the registry office in Meinheim where the
volunteer archivist of Markt Berolzheim found Leo's birth and death
certificates for me recently.

The children could have died while living at the orphanage in Fuerth.
It's just strange they were never spoken of. And if two died at
the orphanage, it would seem that would have been a topic of discussion.
I'm not sure how long my grandfather was at the orphanage. My
mom was under the impression that they chose that one because of the
excellent Jewish school in the area. (My grandfather rejoined his family
but I'm not sure in what year, and came home for visits. )

Sincerely, Lin Herz Palm Bay, Florida

JewishGen's NY Genealogy Course starts June 14 #belarus

Nancy Siegel
 

So many of our immigrant ancestors lived in New York City -- they
started on the Lower East Side and upgraded to the Bronx and Brooklyn;
their children moved to Queens, Westchester, Long Island and New
Jersey.

We have census reports >from Ancestry and vital records from
ItalianGen, but this class will focus on the more esoteric documents
our ancestors generated, including probate, landsmanshaften, voter
registration, newspapers, and court case records.

This is an intermediate level genealogy course with eight text lessons
you can download; there are no specific times for the course as
students are international. Students will select a branch to research
and receive daily advice and suggestions >from the instructor through a
24/7 Forum, in a query and answer format. Students must feel
comfortable browsing the web and downloading files, have 8-10 hours
available each week, and should select one NYC family where census and
vital records are already documented.

Tuition is $150; registration is open at:
https://www.jewishgen.org/education/description.asp?course=40135

For questions, please email the instructor: Phyllis Kramer,
JewishGen's VP of Education, born and bred in NYC; she will lead you
through it.

Yizkor Book Project, May 2019 #galicia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I will start off by noting that this will probably be my last Yizkor
Book monthly report. I will be shortly stepping down as Yizkor Book
Project Manager and my place will be taken over by Binny Lewis.
Having being involved in this project >from around 1999 and leading
it >from 2009, it would seem the time is ripe for me to allow someone
with new ideas and energy to take on the project. In the meantime,
I will still be around to help Binny acclimatize to the tasks involved.

I would sincerely like to thank each and every person who has
contributed in some way to the continued success of the Yizkor
Book Project. I am perpetually in awe of the willingness of people to
devote their time and energy to help out in some way to move the
various projects along. I am quite sure that Binny will continue to
receive the same level of support and dedication which will enable
the project to further grow and develop.

As a parting "gift", I am pleased to let you know that the complete
translation of the Wyzkow, Poland Yizkor book is now online. Our
grateful thanks go out to Howard Orenstein who has led this project
from its outset and has untiringly followed through with this project
to its ultimate goal.

Other than that, I would like to note that a number of new
Translation Projects have recently been setup for the books of the
following communities:

- Augustow, Poland
- Skalat, Ukraine
- Zinkiv, Ukraine

The support we need to see these books translated is, naturally,
financial and if you are able to assist in that direction with any
amount, please make your donation on our JewishGen-erosity page
(link below) to the project you wish to support.

Now, before letting you know about the updates and additions, I do
wish you and your families a Shavuot Sameach or a Happy Shavuot.
