Viennese Jewish Property Records #austria-czech

Robert Fraser
 

Hi guys -

When ordering records of property declared by Viennese
Jewish families in 1938 >from the
Oesterreichisches Staatsarchiv, is a charge levied? Does one
just write to the Archiv?

I ordered one record several years ago via Avotaynu. My
cheque was never cashed ( I think the company went bust ),
but I received the record anyway.

We are pleased to announce the publication of the latest issue of JewishGen's
SUCCESS! STORIES webzine. You can access these stories >from the "About Us"
button on our homepage or by following this link:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen/Testimonials/ .

Our new issue has two articles that complement each other in interesting ways.
Unlike many of our past stories, in which connections were made using the
JewishGen Family Finder or through queries and letters posted on the discussion
lists, these two tales, by Bill Schechter and Jerry Touger, feature family
reunions that came about through more varied research, but in each case also
using resources found on JewishGen.

We're sure you'll be inspired by these stories and we encourage you to send our
volunteer editors, Meredith Hoffman and Nancy Siegel, your own success stories
for possible future publication. Their email address is:

Yizkor Book Project, July 2011 #hungary

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Whilst the Guinness Book of Records Team are seemingly quite apathetic to
our impressive figure of 73 new books, entries and updated projects during
July 2011, we at the Yizkor Book Project, are more than very pleased with
this achievement.

Indeed, there were a number of milestones that took place this month as we
completed adding in the last set of the 18 Kremenets booklets (details
below), thanks to the dedicated coordination of Ron Doctor, the meticulous
editing by Ellen Garshick and excellent translations by Sara Mages, Thia
Persoff and others. The work on these booklets continues as we speak and we
look forward to seeing further additions to them as time goes on.

This month also saw the culmination of two online Yizkor Books. The first
being the "Memorial Book of the Community of Ostrow-Mazowiecka" book which
was coordinated by Judie Goldstein, who also did the bulk of the
translations in this project and who deserves a heartfelt "yashar koach" for
seeing the project through to its successful completion. I would also like
to thank Stanley Diamond for his important assistance behind the scenes and
particularly, in helping assemble the images >from the book to be placed
online. Quite a team!

The other book that was completely placed online, this month, was "The
destruction of Proskurov", the translation of which, was kindly donated by
Anne M. Brennan.

And speaking of completed books, the Yizkor Book Project recently set up the
Yizkor Books in Print initiative under the guiding wings of Joel Alpert to
prepare hard copies of the books that have completely translated within the
Yizkor Book Project. After sending out a call for volunteers, Joel and I
were thrilled by the messages of support that we received for this
initiative and also the encouraging response >from volunteers who offered
their skills in the myriad tasks required for this project. However, in
spite of the many offers of assistance that we did receive, there are a
still a number of positions that we still need to fill:

- A Publicity Specialist to take care of publicizing these books in as many
directions as possible.
- Document Coordinator to submit applications for Copyrights, Library of
Congress Numbers, ISBN numbers and keeping track of submittals and
responses.

If one of these positions suits your abilities or you would like to learn
more about this new initiative, please look at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html If you do find a task that you
would like to take on, please contact Joel Alpert via the link appearing on
this page.

And on responses, I was also pleased by the incredible response for my cry
for html help and our ranks have now been joined by Jason Hallgarten who has
already shown himself to be an important boost to our little team. There are
a number of others who have shown interest and are trying their hand at
preparing our web pages and we look forward to expanding our team even
further. We also received encouraging response >from a number of volunteers
who are have now begun helping prepare the necrology database files - help
that was sorely needed.

new projects:

being the "Memorial Book of the Community of Ostrow-Mazowiecka" book which
was coordinated by Judie Goldstein, who also did the bulk of the
translations in this project and who deserves a heartfelt "yashar koach" for
seeing the project through to its successful completion. I would also like
to thank Stanley Diamond for his important assistance behind the scenes and
particularly, in helping assemble the images >from the book to be placed
online. Quite a team!

The other book that was completely placed online, this month, was "The
destruction of Proskurov", the translation of which, was kindly donated by
Anne M. Brennan.

And speaking of completed books, the Yizkor Book Project recently set up the
Yizkor Books in Print initiative under the guiding wings of Joel Alpert to
prepare hard copies of the books that have completely translated within the
Yizkor Book Project. After sending out a call for volunteers, Joel and I
were thrilled by the messages of support that we received for this
initiative and also the encouraging response >from volunteers who offered
their skills in the myriad tasks required for this project. However, in
spite of the many offers of assistance that we did receive, there are a
still a number of positions that we still need to fill:

- A Publicity Specialist to take care of publicizing these books in as many
directions as possible.
- Document Coordinator to submit applications for Copyrights, Library of
Congress Numbers, ISBN numbers and keeping track of submittals and
responses.

If one of these positions suits your abilities or you would like to learn
more about this new initiative, please look at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html If you do find a task that you
would like to take on, please contact Joel Alpert via the link appearing on
this page.

And on responses, I was also pleased by the incredible response for my cry
for html help and our ranks have now been joined by Jason Hallgarten who has
already shown himself to be an important boost to our little team. There are
a number of others who have shown interest and are trying their hand at
preparing our web pages and we look forward to expanding our team even
further. We also received encouraging response >from a number of volunteers
who are have now begun helping prepare the necrology database files - help
that was sorely needed.

Re: Mistake or name changed #hungary

My grandfather's name has appeared as Izrael and Izidor on various
documents, and he lived and passed away in the Sub-Carpathian region of
the former Austro-Hungarian empire.

I hope this helps.

Hello

When I began my research in 2005, for my ggfather I only known his name
(SONNENFELD/SONENFELD), first name (IsraÍl), his year of birth (1853)
and where he was born (S� rospatak, Hungary).

After have looked at on JewisGen for the births, I thought to have find
his parents and siblings. But now I ask me if I have not do a mistake.

At this date I read his mother's maiden name : "Czili Czipre". To be
sure and learn more I looked at in a Center to Paris the LDS microfilm,
and there for her maiden name I read something like SZANIRINE
(hungarian name).

The problem for me is that recently I read on my gfather's birth
certificate an other maiden name : Cäcilia LIEBERMANN. I think this
last is the good because Czili and Cäcilia is same first name on
soundex names.

So I ask me if her maiden name was changed or if the translation was
bad ?

It's necessary for me to resolve this point beacuse I found a census
1869 for Cäcilia SONNENFELD, maiden name LIEBERMANN but with other
children and without a son named IsraÍl

Unless my great-great grandmother had made a false statement by
changing the dates of birth and surnames

An other thing : is IsraÍl and Izidor the same first name ?

Can somebody help me ?

Yizkor Book Project, July 2011 #latvia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Whilst the Guinness Book of Records Team are seemingly quite apathetic to
our impressive figure of 73 new books, entries and updated projects during
July 2011, we at the Yizkor Book Project, are more than very pleased with
this achievement.

Indeed, there were a number of milestones that took place this month as we
completed adding in the last set of the 18 Kremenets booklets (details
below), thanks to the dedicated coordination of Ron Doctor, the meticulous
editing by Ellen Garshick and excellent translations by Sara Mages, Thia
Persoff and others. The work on these booklets continues as we speak and we
look forward to seeing further additions to them as time goes on.

This month also saw the culmination of two online Yizkor Books. The first
being the "Memorial Book of the Community of Ostrow-Mazowiecka" book which
was coordinated by Judie Goldstein, who also did the bulk of the
translations in this project and who deserves a heartfelt "yashar koach" for
seeing the project through to its successful completion. I would also like
to thank Stanley Diamond for his important assistance behind the scenes and
particularly, in helping assemble the images >from the book to be placed
online. Quite a team!

The other book that was completely placed online, this month, was "The
destruction of Proskurov", the translation of which, was kindly donated by
Anne M. Brennan.

And speaking of completed books, the Yizkor Book Project recently set up the
Yizkor Books in Print initiative under the guiding wings of Joel Alpert to
prepare hard copies of the books that have completely translated within the
Yizkor Book Project. After sending out a call for volunteers, Joel and I
were thrilled by the messages of support that we received for this
initiative and also the encouraging response >from volunteers who offered
their skills in the myriad tasks required for this project. However, in
spite of the many offers of assistance that we did receive, there are a
still a number of positions that we still need to fill:

- A Publicity Specialist to take care of publicizing these books in as many
directions as possible.
- Document Coordinator to submit applications for Copyrights, Library of
Congress Numbers, ISBN numbers and keeping track of submittals and
responses.

If one of these positions suits your abilities or you would like to learn
more about this new initiative, please look at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html If you do find a task that you
would like to take on, please contact Joel Alpert via the link appearing on
this page.

And on responses, I was also pleased by the incredible response for my cry
for html help and our ranks have now been joined by Jason Hallgarten who has
already shown himself to be an important boost to our little team. There are
a number of others who have shown interest and are trying their hand at
preparing our web pages and we look forward to expanding our team even
further. We also received encouraging response >from a number of volunteers
who are have now begun helping prepare the necrology database files - help
that was sorely needed.

31st IAJGS Conference <dc2011_conference@...>
 

BOOK & AUTHOR SIGNING PROGRAM

Another enriching Conference program feature now is available, about
which you may not have heard much: the Book & Author Signing!

Authors may sell their books, films, etc. immediately after their
presentation at the Book & Author table in the Independence lobby of the
Grand Hyatt Conference Center. We also have arranged to have two group
signings, as follows:

On Monday at 5:30-6:00 pm, in Independence F & G
On Wednesday at 5:30-6:00 pm, in Constitution B.

Due to space and time realities, authors may have no more than one or
two of their titles available. Transactions will be limited to cash and
American bank checks. Credit cards will not be accepted.

A current list of the authors available after their presentations, on

Monday, on Wednesday (or some combination of the three occasions)
appears below, and also can be found at the Conference website. The
