Yizkor Book Project mid-month report #general

JoyceField <jfield@...>
 

Dear JewishGenners,

The Yizkor Book Project is on the move again. We had too much great news to
wait until the end of the month.

Despite a mind-boggling backlog, we have miraculously managed to put six
(6) new files on our web site at <
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html> since the beginning of
this month. There are now 38 files on our site. Considering that the
first document appeared about a year ago, we have made tremendous strides
in one year.

Please check out these wonderful additions:

1) Babruysk, Belarus, presented by Don Mopsick and the Bobruisk SIG:
translation of the Historical Monograph and other chapters

2) Gorodenka, Ukraine: 2 entries are included: the table of contents and
necrology, donated by Mark Heckman and Norman Berman, and a List of
Victims >from documents of the Russian Commission, transliterated by
Alexander Dunai.

3) Kybartai, Lithuania: The Book of Remembrance of the Jewish Community of
Kybart, a special translation into English by the author of the book,
Joseph Rosin, for the Internet edition.

4) Obertin, Ukraine: List of Victims >from documents of the Russian
Commission, transliterated by Alexander Dunai.

5) Siemiatycze, Poland: The Scroll of My Life, written in Yiddish and
translated, edited, and contributed by Leonard Prager, editor of Mendele.

Thanks to Martin Kessel and the wonderful technical staff who have worked
so tirelessly to assist us with our tasks.

In a day or two we will also we making an announcement of our new process
for donating funds to the Translation Project.

Locating Ships Passenger Lists #general

Carole/Phil Silverman
 

My grandfather emigrated to the US by ship via Antwerp Belgium to New
York in 1905 in the month of October. I have found the four ships that
came to New York >from Antwerp in October and their dates of arrival. I
was able to view microfilm containing several of the ships passenger
lists at the LDS Family History Center. However, the microfilm that
should have had the ship, Kroonland, arriving in New York on October 10,
1905, in fact did not have that ship listed. Can someone direct me to
another source where that information can be located?

Thank you.
Phil Silverman

MODERATOR NOTE: An additional source of info might be FAQ #10
- Passenger Lists on our web site.

Searching: Howard ? ORENSTEIN, Chicago ? #general

Jackye Sullins <jackye@...>
 

I am trying to locate a Howard ORENSTEIN (I think that's his first name)
whose mother was Elsie (real name Fanny) HARRIS. They lived in Chicago
but I don't know where Elsie's son lives now. Elsie had two brothers
named Philip and Leon. He is a cousin but I don't know how.

I hope someone recognizes the name.

Is anyone out there connected to a BURDINE family? Is the department store
family Jewish? The thought of Elvis being connected to a department store
boggles the mind....
There was a family named BOWDINE in Tennessee, and I know that Jethro BOWDINE
was Jewish. They were related to the CLAMPETTS...BTW, Elvis is spotted in malls
everyday across America -- what's so mind boggling? (TIC)

The next step is to check the book indexes for the BURDINE family (assuming
your research results so far are adequately reliable). If you know an
approximate date and location, you can look through some books or CD ROMS for
the Nancy BURDINE family at any good genealogical library (eg the New England
Historical Genealogical Society).

National Archives Search Exchange #general

Howard M. Relles <rellesh@...>
 

I would be happy to look up a Ship's Record or a 1900 or 1920 U.S.
Census Record for someone during my next trip to the National Archives
branch in Pittsfield, MA (I get there once or twice every week) in
exchange for that person going to the Probate Court at 2 Johnson Ave. in
Brooklyn, NY and obtaining a copy of a will for me. Finding a person in
their index and getting the copy of his or her will is free if done in
person but costs $70 if a staff member of the Court does it. Is anyone
interested in this genealogical effort exchange?
Sincerely,
