Yizkor Book Project, November 2010 #austria-czech

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

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:

My greatgreat aunt nee Esther FRANKEL/FRANKLIN/FRANKELIEN b 1859 d.
29-Mar-1933 (Jo'berg) married Louis Abraham KAHN in London Dec 1887
before immigrating to S Africa where her second son Albert E Kahn was born.
Louis Kahn (a watchmaker) died and his son Albert Kahn died 14-Oct-1952
buried Westpark Cemetery Jo'berg. Her first son Harold Kahn died 1 Aug 1961
Jo'berg. The sons were stockbrokers.
The only hope I now have of finding Esther Frankel/Franklin/Frankelien
birthplace is if she or Louis Abraham Kahn obtained British citizenship in
Johannesberg.

Where may I find the archives of applications for British citizenship in
Johannesberg 1894 - 1933 ?

Dear Siggers

Further to my recent posting re. my American family, I must thank everyone
who got in touch (I believe I have thanked all personally too).
Especial thanks go to Janet Isenberg who has comprehensively researched and
uncovered a large amount of new data.

I am now left with several dead ends which I hope someone out there can
assist with.

EMANUEL Hans b. 1933 Mannheim. He changed his name to John Eden, became a
noted Opthalmologist, and died in Sagaponack, NY in 2004.
Did he marry, have children?

EMANUEL Paul (Edward) b. 01/10/06 NY, d. 07/01/97 Jamaica, Queens, NY.
Again did he marry etc.

EMANUEL Eugen (aka Eugene), wife Flora, sons Werner (aka Donald) & Cola (aka
Nick). They arrived in 1935, can be traced through Naturalisation/ Military
Draft 1943. After this all trace of the family disappears.

SHUCHMANN Lottie (nee Muller) b. Koln 1926, d. NY 1995; husband Abe, b.
Russia 1919, d. NY 1978. They had two daughters Julie & Lisa born NY.
Has anyone come across them?

Any light that anyone can throw on these cousins of mine would be much
appreciated.

Dear Genners,

It almost embarrasses me to join the ranks of those who stand here
and say what a wonderful bunch of people you are. Within hours of my
posting I was getting much support, tips and in one instance, >from
Barbara Zimmer of Virginia, an almost perfect fit - Mosek Jacow
Frenkel married Tyla Witwornik in 1890 in Plock, Poland. Now I need
to order the LDS microfilms to read the actual records and see what
they say.

So, many thanks to Barbara Zimmer - and the JRI-Poland records, and
the wonderful JewishGen community.

And yes, I WILL be making a donation to show my appreciation to this
group and for (hopefully) locating the European origin of my Frankel
family.

history?"

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/console/p00c74k5/Heart_And_Soul_The_Holocaust_Deniers_Episode_2

This is very well researched and edited. there is a lot of information
on the current Jewish community.

Many of the people interviewed are familiar to those who have visited
Lithuania, such as Rachel Kostanian.

If you cant get the actual podcast in the USA or listen live on a

I'd like to say that it was an honor for me to be able to photograph the
burial books >from Eger, and along with my sister, transcribe them, post
the information on our personal family web site, and donate the effort
to the JOWBR back in 2003.

If anyone would like to discuss the topic with me, or obtain a copy of

I'd like to say that it was an honor for me to be able to photograph the
burial books >from Eger, and along with my sister, transcribe them, post
the information on our personal family web site, and donate the effort
to the JOWBR back in 2003.

If anyone would like to discuss the topic with me, or obtain a copy of
the photos, feel free to contact me offline.

I want to remind New York State (and Northeast US) researchers of the
wonderful resource here: http://www.fultonhistory.com/Fulton.html
containing digitized copies of New York State newspapers, including
the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, where I found references to this BRODACH
family.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen question about Emergency Passport Application - beyond the Index? #general

31st IAJGS Conference <dc2011_conference@...>
 

Dear Allen:

I assume that the index that you are referring to is the one created by the
Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington more than 12 years ago. This
was compiled by volunteers >from our society who went through the actual
paperwork for the Emergency Passports at Archives II in College Park,
Maryland. The people working there will not know anything about the index as
the index is not an official document. The researchers compiling the list
pulled out only what they assumed were 'Jewish names.' That is why the
valet's name is not likely to be in the index.

I checked my copy of the index and you should also know that the location of
the file is 36/04. You will need this in addition to the information that
you have. You might try contact the Archives through their website
http://archives.gov/research/ to see if you can order copies of Moses and
Sara Frank's information. The information for both is in one file.

Another alternative is to join us >from August 14-19, 2011 at the 31st IAJGS
International Conference on Jewish Genealogy. We will have representatives
from the Archives at the conference who can guide you regarding the
Emergency Passports, also known as RG 84 and while in Washington, DC you can
go out to nearby College Park, MD to actually see the documents in the
Index.

Dear Brian,

while working on an index of the list of names who were supposed to be
exempted >from the September 1942 deportations >from the Lodz Ghetto to
Chelmno, I came across the name Arnold ZYLBERSZAC, born 21-Feb-1936
(there spelled SILBERCZAC). Many more listings in many more spelling
variations can be found in the JewishGen website

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

Perhaps this helps,

with kind regards
