Lipcani Cemetery project #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Dear researchers,

As you all know we completed the Lipcani Cemetery project. It was a very hard work to finish it, and
thanks to many volunteers who helped. The cemetery has on its grounds graves >from 18 century,
which are very rare in Bessarabia. Some of the stones have beautiful ornamentation.

We have total of 1879 burial sites we identified (at least one of the names). We also submitted to
JOWBR 1806 photos of graves, and 567 photos of Unknown graves.

The 1879 records with photos are going to be uploaded to JewishGen in the summer of this year
(JOWBR updates the database twice a year!) The Lipcani Cemetery report as well as a set of
Unknown graves are available at Bessarabia SIG website, Cemetery section now.

For those of you who donated $100+ for the project, I am sending the whole registry to you.
I have already sent to 6 of our donors. It is possible that you donated for Lipcani Cemetery
project, but I do not know about it. Please let me know.

Also if you donate now to Bessarabia-Moldova Cemetery project $100, I will send you the
Lipcani Cemetery registry.

Please let me know if you have questions,

All the best,

JewishGen course: Complex Jewish Genealogy in the United States #france

Phyllis Kramer
 

Times change and family genealogists are becoming more genealogically
experienced, more sophisticated at researching major web sites; yet
organization and good research habits are necessary. Your best value
may be one of our personally mentored, one-on-one, JewishGen courses.

April brings our Intermediate Course, Complex Genealogical Research
in the United States.If, despite basic online research (census, vital
records), you have not yet found the Hebrew names, approximate birth
year and/or former European town(s) for your U.S. immigrant ancestors,
consider this course as it covers more complex U.S. topics such as
naturalization, manifests, death records, military and governmental
records (passports, visas, bankruptcy), and local archival research
(course begins April 3).

This 4 week genealogy course features our personal mentoring program
and our online FORUM. Students are encouraged to post an ancestral
branch, set goals for their research, and work one on one with the
instructor. We are proud of our unique, individualized format and
downloadable lessons.

Students should have 8-10 hours per week to read the lessons, search
online and interact with the instructor. Courses are open 24/7 to meet
the needs of international students. *Please* read the course
descriptions, instructor's credentials and requirements on
www.jewishgen.org/education. Course Registration is opens, tuition is
$150.

If, after reviewing the education page, you have some questions,
please email JewishGen-Education@lyris.JewishGen.org.

(Poland) Polish Press Photojournalist Henryk Ross Documented Lodz Ghetto Photographs On Exhibit in Boston #poland #lodz

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Polish press photojournalist, Henryk Ross (1910-1991) was forced to work by
the Nazi's as a photographer for the Jewish Administration, one of 160,000
prisoners was held in the Lodz Ghetto. His work depicts an extraordinary
insight to life in the Lodz Ghetto for its four years 1940-1944. He buried
his negatives in 1944 to preserve the historical record of what happened in
Lodz. He was one of 877 ghetto survivors. Returning to the ghetto after
Lodz's liberations, he discovered more than half of his 6,000 original
negatives remained intact.

"Memory Unearthed" is an exhibit organized by the Art gallery of Ontario,
Canada. It will be at Boston's Museum of Fine Arts March 25-July 30 with
over 200 of the photographs. The photographs depict the four years of the
ghetto where over 25 percent of the prisoners died >from starvation. To read

Scott,

This type of arrangement may be possible on the ground in Belarus. If
you're able to get to Beniakoni or Voronovo you may be able to hire a
taxi and guide there for Konvelishki. Do the authorities permit travel
to Beniakoni or Voronovo?

If you haven't already, try posting this same inquiry to the BelarusSIG
also.
