Yizkor Book Project, November 2010 #latinamerica

Shalom,

Before outlining what has transpired in the month of November in the Yizkor
Book Project, I would like to take time to salute our very (very) small but
extremely dedicated team of volunteer htmlers - Max Heffler & Osnat Ramaty.
These wonderful people have been in the Yizkor Book for many, many years and
their experience, patience and never-say-no attitude is very much
appreciated. Max is also multi-tasking in a great deal of other projects and
he is the man behind the regular updates of our necrology database - an
extra salute to him! The necrology database, by-the-way, can be researched
at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/

And on the subject of research, I am often sent messages asking if a Yizkor
book is available for a particular community. If this is a question you're
been asking yourself, I highly recommend you look at our Yizkor Book
database to see what book(s) are available for the community you're
researching and if we have a Yizkor Book Project already online, you will
note a hot link to the available translation in our site.

http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/database.html

Something new to our projects. We have began adding in hot links (where
appropriate) >from project main pages to the original Yizkor Books that are
available at the NY Public Library site:

http://legacy.www.nypl.org/research/chss/jws/yizkorbookonline.cfm

Since we have hundreds of books, we still have a lot to add but we see this
a great help for those who are able to read the books in their original
languages, and is on our long list of "things-to-do".

As always, the Yizkor Book Project relies on the help of its many volunteers
and if you feel that you have time to assist - knowledge in translation or
editing not a must, I would definitely like to hear >from you.

Now to the November figures. During this last month we have added these 4
new projects:

- Maydan, Ukraine (Majdan, Carpathia: The names of the Jews and their fate
in the Holocaust) http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/maydan/maydan.html

Eger Cemetery Records #hungary

jel@lipmanson.net <jel@...>
 

I have only recently found a Hungarian branch of my family (thanks to
another JewishGen member), and started looking at the Hungarian databases.

My earliest Hungarian ancestor is Pinkasz Klausz, who was born in Russia
(Ostrog or vicinity most likely) in 1879 and emigrated to Eger, Hungary
about 1878. He married Lotti Kriener in Hungary and had 10 children.

So far I have found a listing of Pinkasz' burial (1938) in the JewishGen
JOWBR database, but am unable to find the primary source >from which his
entry was extracted. The database inventory shows no cemetery name, only
that it is one cemetery with 1996 burials. The record indicates the
information came >from "Book 2," which suggests the source is either a
cemetery or synagogue register. Does anyone know the original source of
this burial record?

I am somewhat obsessive about my sources and would like to know
something more definitive than an online database.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Re: Taking wives names/illegitimacy #hungary

dan.haas@...
 

I wish to correct one small error in Madeleine's posting and not to disagree with her
direction of thought.

If you read the original Deceased Wife's Sister's Marriage Act of 1907 (rather than
wikipediea, whose article seems to have been withdrawn) it is apparent that contrary
to Madeleine's suggestion, this act made marriage between a man and his dead wife's
sister entirely legal and legitimate for most civil purposes in Britain.

So this act is wrongly cited as an example of the Austro-Hungarian prohibition.
This British act was intended as a liberalisation, against the prior Christian religious
climate of opinion that such marriage was wrong. The act even provides a way around a
clergyman refusing to conduct such a marriage on moral grounds, by dictating that such
a clergyman must step aside and allow another clergyman to conduct the marriage.

Hope this helps

So this act is wrongly cited as an example of the Austro-Hungarian prohibition.
This British act was intended as a liberalisation, against the prior Christian religious
climate of opinion that such marriage was wrong. The act even provides a way around a
clergyman refusing to conduct such a marriage on moral grounds, by dictating that such
a clergyman must step aside and allow another clergyman to conduct the marriage.

Hope this helps

Migration fm Bohemia-Moravia #hungary

Hi Paul,

You are correct that very few Jews in NE Hungary appear to have come >from Bohemia/Moravia in the eighteenth century. In fact, I have seen none that I can remember. The ones whose origin I remember seeing mainly came >from Galicia, Some also arrived in the Sarospatak area >from Saros and Sepes counties and >from the far NE part of Zemplen. These were all part of Hungary at the time (they are now in Slovakia), but I suspect they were basically a "way station" >from Galicia as well.

JGSLA - "From Shtetl to Tango" & Passages - Sunday, Dec. 12, 2010 #general

Pamela Weisberger
 

Please join the Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles at our next meeting:

Sunday, December 12 >from 1:00PM - 4:00PM

">from Shtetl to Tango: The Story of South America's Jewish White Slave Trade" & a
screening of the documentary "Passages" with filmmaker,Gabriela Bohm.

University Synagogue 11960 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles 90049

1:00PM - 2:30PM - Lecture: ">from Shtetl to Tango" - Using archival photos and
narrative film clips, Gabriela Bohm, will discuss the extraordinary story of Raquel
Lieberman, born in Lodz, Poland one of 30,000 shtetl girls tricked into fake
marriages and sold by their "husbands" into slavery. She was devoured by a
prostitution ring after leaving Europe for a better life in Argentina. This work
in progress chronicles Raquel's passage >from naif to defiled to defiant and tells
the true, sad story of the largest Jewish mafia, the ZwiMigdal (originally known as
the "Warsaw Jewish Mutual Aid Society")which operated more than 3,000 international
brothels >from the 1860s until the 1930s.

2:45PM - 4:00PM - "Passages" - Six-months pregnant, a young Jewish woman who grew
up in Argentina searches for family connections. Traveling to Eastern Europe,
Israel and South America, she unlocks family myths and secrets. She encounters
distant family members, studies old photo albums, and speaks candidly with her
mother, slowly piecing together her family's complicated past. She journies to her
father's hometown in Romania where former neighbors recall the day when his family
was sent to Auschwitz. By exposing the consequences of the Holocaust and other
family traumas, she discovers the legacy she will pass on to her child as they make
a life together in the United States.

Gabriela Bohm is an award-winning producer/director of moving documentary films
that explore cultural identity, inspiring people of all faiths with their stories
of resilience. Her latest full-length documentary, "The Longing: The Forgotten
Jews of South America," won a Telly Award for Religion/Spirituality, Best Latino
Film at the Santa Fe Film Festival, Best Documentary at the Long Island Latino
International Film Festival, and Honorable Mention/Documentary at the Orlando
Hispanic Film Festival. Her previous documentary, Passages, won Best Documentary
at the Woodstock Film Festival and the Jury Award at the Tambay Film Festival. A
native of Argentina, she studied art and photography in Israel, prior to coming to

Tri-cultural, she is a US citizen and speaks fluent English, Spanish and Hebrew.

Museum of Family History Update for December 2010 #general

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

There are now are eighty-one Tomek Wisniewski films available for viewing at the
Museum of Family History. The towns featured in these films include Zolkiew (now
Zhovkva, Ukraine); Zborow (now Zborov, Ukraine); Rymanow, Trzebinia; Stanislawow
(now Ivano-Frankovsk, Ukraine)--These are all former Galician towns. There are also
new films about Zelechow and Staporkow, Poland. You can find links to all these
films at www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/tomek/films.htm .

The three exhibitions featured within the Museum’s World War II and the Holocaust
‘wing’ will be taken offline after January 4, 2010, so please do visit this
interesting set of exhibitions while you still can. The exhibitions include many
examples of postal artifacts, many either originating >from or going to the camps,
ghettos, etc. You can find links to these exhibitions at
www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/mfh-wwII-holocaust-01.htm . You might notice that
the Museum now has a “favicon” which appears in the address bar on your computer
when one of my main web pages appear on your computer. It is a graphic of a family
of three with a Star of David located within the graphic.

The Museum is currently considering a number of new online exhibitions for 2011
(more will be considered in the future), some of which include the following
titles:
--The Lower East Side of New York
--Sophie Tucker: The Last of the Red Hot Mamas (the sixth in the Museum’s series of
great Jewish artists and the first woman featured)
--To Honor and Preserve (different methods that some of us have employed to honor
our parents and grandparents and preserve their memory)
--Yiddish World: An Interview with Seymour Rexsite
--The Orange Wave of East New York, Brooklyn: Thomas Jefferson High School (by the
way, the Museum has added the full June 1937 Jefferson yearbook to its database and
now boasts more than seventy yearbooks online and data on more than 47,000
graduates.) www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/tjhs.htm
--HIAS: The Hebrew Immigration Aid Society (an expansion of the current exhibition)
--After the War: Our Families in the DP Camps (family photos and stories about life
in the DP camps after the war are welcomed at the Museum. Please contact me if you
have some and would allow me to put them online within the framework of this
exhibition.)
More translations of Zambrow, Poland Yizkor Book passages will appear exclusively
within the Museum of Family History within the coming year.

Various genealogical works are being considered for 2011 including the taking of
photography of more landsmanshaftn gravestones found within NYC cemeteries.

Suggestions and materials for future exhibitions are always welcome. Be the first
to hear Museum news by signing up for its blog (see the link below).
