0 2 <doumajk@...>
 

I would like a translation of this marriage record and information
about the list of names at the bottom. Are they witnesses? Any
indication of relationships? It is >from Hrubieszow, 1860, and I called
it Russian, but looking again today, I think perhaps actually Polish?

Thanks for the help,

The results: What can be known about this Hebrew name? #general

Karen Jo Rippens <krippens@...>
 

Thanks so much to everyone who responded to this question. My life is richer
now! I not only know about my grandfather?s name, but also his father?s
name.

The consensus is that the name Leibil Ben Shaye Israel means

Leibil = diminutive of Yiddish Lieb, which means lion
Ben = son of, of course
Shaye = Yeshayahu, or Isaiah
Israel, which of course we know

However, Renee Stirling actually looked at the Ancestry.com record that
contains a snapshot of his headstone. She pointed out that the Hebrew is
translated incorrectly, and the last name is actually Hirshel. As I
understand it, Hirshel means deer.

Thanks everyone. This was wonderful.

Postings that focus on assistance needed #general

Naidia Woolf <rnwoolf@...>
 

I'd like to suggest to other "genners" seeking help with their research
that - in addition to providing a research-specific subject line - their
postings to this newsgroup are as brief and to the point as possible. I
realize that might be difficult (or almost impossible) to do, especially if
it is a complex inquiry, one concerning a number of ancestors or range of
issues pertaining to that person's genealogical research.

The advantage of posting "short and sweet" messages is that other members
will be able to tell right away the nature of the inquiry and the kind of
help needed.

We're all in the same proverbial boat (although not necessarily the
descendants of Jews who disembarked at Ellis Island!) in terms of our
genealogical research, and interested in and willing to help other "genners"
fill in the gaps or break through those brick walls..

Re: BMD records from Berlin - 2011 changes #germany

Jan Bousse <janbousse@...>
 

The matter of obtaining records >from the Berlin registries (Standesaemter)
has been discussed here recently. I had sent a request for records >from
around 1890 to the Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg Standesamt end of December last
year. Having still not received an answer and after the suggestion that
these records were in the process of being transferred to the archives, I
wrote a letter to the Landesarchiv Berlin with the same request. Almost
immediately I received an answer (I had visited the archives a few years ago
and I got a very favourable impression). They declare that the first
transfers >from the Berlin Standesaemter will not occur before the end of
2013. They refer to their website to check the situation. They found that
the records I requested are with the Standesamt Mitte and they are
forwarding my request to them. I hope that they answer just as quickly, I'll
certainly keep the group informed.

#Ciechanow #Poland Yizkor Book Project, February 2011 #ciechanow #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

February, a short month? We at the Yizkor Book Project have laughed in the
face of this short month and are pleased to announce that we have added and
updated a record number projects during it. Also during this month, a number
of new, exciting projects have begun to brew and, hopefully, in my next
report I'll be able to provide more details of them.

This month I would like to send out a sincere salute a wonderful group of
people who are currently volunteering their free time in translating Hebrew
and Yiddish into English. Their uniqueness is that each of them has worked
on quite a number of projects and helped their advance for the benefit of us
all. So my humble thanks go out this month to: Ruthy Erez, Yocheved
Klausner, Sara Mages, Thia Persoff, Pamela Russ, Francine Shapiro & Esther
Snyder.

While we're talking about translations, if any of you out there are
interested in helping to finance the translation of the 47 page section on
Lviv (Lemberg) >from Pinkas Hakehillot Poland (Encyclopedia of Jewish
Communities, Poland), please contact me privately. In general, if you have
interest in financing any of the articles >from these pinkasim
(encyclopedias) I'd be happy to hear >from you and I'll explain how it can be
done.

Shalom,

February, a short month? We at the Yizkor Book Project have laughed in the
face of this short month and are pleased to announce that we have added and
updated a record number projects during it. Also during this month, a number
of new, exciting projects have begun to brew and, hopefully, in my next
report I'll be able to provide more details of them.

This month I would like to send out a sincere salute a wonderful group of
people who are currently volunteering their free time in translating Hebrew
and Yiddish into English. Their uniqueness is that each of them has worked
on quite a number of projects and helped their advance for the benefit of us
all. So my humble thanks go out this month to: Ruthy Erez, Yocheved
Klausner, Sara Mages, Thia Persoff, Pamela Russ, Francine Shapiro & Esther
Snyder.

While we're talking about translations, if any of you out there are
interested in helping to finance the translation of the 47 page section on
Lviv (Lemberg) >from Pinkas Hakehillot Poland (Encyclopedia of Jewish
Communities, Poland), please contact me privately. In general, if you have
interest in financing any of the articles >from these pinkasim
(encyclopedias) I'd be happy to hear >from you and I'll explain how it can be
done.

Rabbinic Genealogy SIG #Rabbinic Yizkor Book Project, February 2011 #rabbinic

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

February, a short month? We at the Yizkor Book Project have laughed in the
face of this short month and are pleased to announce that we have added and
updated a record number projects during it. Also during this month, a number
of new, exciting projects have begun to brew and, hopefully, in my next
report I'll be able to provide more details of them.

This month I would like to send out a sincere salute a wonderful group of
people who are currently volunteering their free time in translating Hebrew
and Yiddish into English. Their uniqueness is that each of them has worked
on quite a number of projects and helped their advance for the benefit of us
all. So my humble thanks go out this month to: Ruthy Erez, Yocheved
Klausner, Sara Mages, Thia Persoff, Pamela Russ, Francine Shapiro & Esther
Snyder.

While we're talking about translations, if any of you out there are
interested in helping to finance the translation of the 47 page section on
Lviv (Lemberg) >from Pinkas Hakehillot Poland (Encyclopedia of Jewish
Communities, Poland), please contact me privately. In general, if you have
interest in financing any of the articles >from these pinkasim
(encyclopedias) I'd be happy to hear >from you and I'll explain how it can be
done.

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

- Kremenets', Ukraine (Voice of Kremenets Emigrants in Israel and the
Diaspora - Booklet 1)
