HTML volunteers needed for the ShtetLinks Project #galicia

Susana Leistner Bloch
 

When we submitted a previous message, asking for volunteers to help
create ShtetLinks webpages several people responded and we now have
10 dedicated and overworked volunteers.

We have a long waiting list of people who have significant material
about their ancestral town / shtetl and would like to create a
webpage dedicated to the Jewish community that once lived there.
Unfortunately, they do not have the necessary technical skills to
create a webpage.

Our webpages are Cyberspace Yizkor Books. Just as the former
residents and survivors of a shtetl took it upon themselves to
record all they could remember and publish a Yizkor Book in memory
of the Jewish community that once lived there, so we, the next
generation, should make sure that whatever we have, every little bit
of information that sheds light on the lives of our people is
recorded and preserved.

If you have the necessary skills, we urge you to volunteer and help
someone create a webpage dedicated to a shtetl / town and in this
way honour and memorialize the Jewish community that once lived
there and provide a valuable resource for future generations of
their descendants.

The Chevra Kadisha offices at West Park have computerised records of the

Dear group,

I have been using the Jewishgen online burial register with some sucsess
to trace
family members buried in Johannesburg. However, there are three people who
don't
appear online, i assume because they are quite early burials and aren't
buried in
Westpark (I'm assuming they're in Brixton??). The problem is, i do'nt know
exactly
when they died. I was hoping that if i found gravestones, i could then get
dates
of death and then i'd be able to get hold of death notices for further
info.

I am hoping someone has a good idea about how to find this information,
bearing in
mind I'm in the UK and can't get to SA.

The people I'm looking for are David and Leah SHALL (SCHIER) who died
within months
of each other c.1937/8. Not to be confused with Leah Shall who died in
1954 and is
buried in Westpark (she's also a relative). Also, my
great-great-grandmother who's
first name i don't know but her surname was KUPCZYK and she died also
mid-late
1930s and lived her last years in a nursing home.

If anyone recognises these names or has any ideas about how to access the
information, i'd be most grateful.

Best Wishes,

Inbal Livne (Edinburgh)

Rules & Guidelines for posting to the ROM-SIG! #romania

Rosanne Leeson <rdleeson@...>
 

With the New Year here it is time for a reminder of the rules and
guidelines
for posting to this SIG!

The rules that apply to the JewishGen Discussion Group also apply to all
the SIG Discussion Groups as well. Here is a brief refresher.

For complete rules go to:

< www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen/DiscussionGroup.htm>
----------------------------------------------------------
1) All surnames should always be capitalized, and surnames *only*!

2) Subject lines should be explicit (e.g. Romanian patronymics
explained; Seeking family - Botosani ) and not general (e.g. need help or
digest 3/6), or worse (No subject)!

3) Signatures should be complete. By this we mean that you must sign
your full name and location (e.g. Jane Doe, Iasi, Romania or Joe Blow,
Podunk,IA).

A responder to an unsigned message can tell you to go to National
Archives, but if you live in France that is of no help to you!

4) Please do not send messages in MIME or HTML format! The JewishGen
server can only accept Plain Text messages. Please contact your provider
if you do not know how to set your email program.

5) Messages cannot be copied >from one list to another without the
express permission of the owner of the original list. If you wish, you
may abstract the information, or say it in your own words.

6) Please do *not* hit the Reply button to answer a message sent to the
Digest. This drags the entire Digest with it, and causes needlessly
long messages for the Moderators to Edit. Simply indicate the name of
the person to whom you are answering, and give the subject of that message.

7) If you use an "Out of office" responder you must set your email to
NOMAIL * before* turning on your automatic responder. Otherwise every
message sent to the list will be bounced back to the sender. You can
do this by going to: < http://lyris.jewishgen.org/ListManager >
Be considerate of your fellow subscribers!

8) And finally, all messages sent to this list must have to do with the
areas covered by this list, i.e. Romania, Transylvania, Moldova as well
as those areas formerly known as Bukovina, Bessarabia, Banat, etc.
Postings that do not clearly relate to our areas will be rejected.

Thank you for your cooperation.
Your Co-Coordinators,
Rosanne Leeson
Paula Zieselman

In my experience >from Hungarian research it is not uncommon to have
