JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Assist Finding SCHNEIDERMAN,PECKER,STEVELMAN graves in MA #general

Susan Goldsmith
 

In response to Stephen Field's request for assistance in finding the
graves of members of his SCHNEIDERMAN, PECKER, and STEVELMAN families in
Roxbury, MA near Boston:

Dear Stephen,

The first place to look is on Jewish Gen at the JOWBR (Jewish Gen Online
Worldwide Burial Registry) database. Scroll down the list of Jewish Gen
offerings until you come to JOWBR, and click on it. It will then be
necessary to enter your researcher code and password. If you do not yet
have a code and password the site explains how to proceed.

You are in luck. A quick search for your families results in 16
SCHNEIDERMAN plus 3 SHNEYDERMAN, 8 PECKER family members, (many more
if you search by DM soundex rather than exact spelling), and 5
Stevelman as well as 2 Stievelman. Each result contains additional
details about the person.

You may want to also contact the Jewish Cemetery Association of
Massachuseets, JCAM, directly. JCAM gave the information to JOWBR, but
may have additional information on your families, not yet entered into
JOWBR or not appropriate for the database. The JCAM website
is www.jcam.org.

I wish you a speedy recovery and if you need any assistance with the
search please feel free to contact me privately.

Zai Gezundt!

JRI Poland #Poland Sharing LDS microfilms #poland

Nicolas Trokiner <trokiner@...>
 

Getting LDS microfilms in France takes a month and they must be ordered
one per one. Because it is certainly also difficult to get them in other
countries, what about "sharing" these microfilms?

For example, on next
thursday evening, I'll go to view the film # 588.934 >from Staszow, Poland
If anyone needs a record >from this film, I can print it. Of course, I
will not search for family names but only for a given act(type, year,
number).

If you think this idea is good and if you can print for other pe
ople, start a thread, mentionning the film number and the place.

Nicolas Trokiner

MODERATOR'S NOTE: If a researcher will be working with a town's
microfilms at an LDS Family History Center and wishes to make a
similar offer to copy specific records >from those films, such an
offer may be sent to this list, requesting private replies.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen French to English translation help needed #general

Shana Egan <segan@...>
 

I have a letter that is handwritten (both sides of the page) in French.
I have tried to type the letter into a French to English computer
translation program but I am having difficulty deciphering the handwriting.
Since I don't know any French, I can't guess at what different words are.
Is there someone out there who might be able to translate this letter for me?

I have not put the letter on viewmate since it is a personal letter
and I am not sure what is relayed in it.

This letter is important because it is >from a relative who is
the daughter of a Holocaust survivor who feels all alone and
without family.

I promise when I respond to the letter, I will ask her to
type future letters so I can use the computer to translate them.

Please reply privately to:

Dear Jewishgenners,

I discovered a great resource for Vizhnitsa researchers:
Ippen's Provinz-Adressbuch. Bezirk Wiznitz, 1895
It is written in German and has hundreds of Jewish names for
Vizhnitsa (Wiznitz) and environs >from 1895. Here is the URL (it is long;
you may have to copy and paste it into your browser):

http://alo.uibk.ac.at/webinterface/library/ALO-BOOK_V01?objid=12048&zoom=6

This link may also be of use as it provides the translations of
many German words for professions:

A photo of my paternal grandmother has just been posted as ViewMate image

The direct address is
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=5304


The photo probably was taken in Poland, possibly in Augustow. Can you
tell me anything about the style and construction of the buildings, the
lone tree, the dress, the tools and artifacts on the porch, etc. that
would shed some light on my grandmother's life?

Please send responses to me directly, at RWeissJGS@..., and not to the

Thank you in advance.

There is an excellent book, Elef Margaliot (A Thousand Pearls)

JRI Poland #Poland four great-grandparents for Uncle Harry, thanks to JRI-Poland #poland

Renee Steinig <rsteinig@...>
 

For the past couple of years, I've been researching the family of my
husband's elderly uncle by marriage. You've probably all heard variations of
this story: Uncle Harry was less than six years old when his mother died and
he spent much of his youth in foster homes. He had limited contact with his
father, who died 12 years later. Life in the present was a struggle and
there was been little conversation about the past. Until two years ago, when
I looked up some of his family documents as part of a 90th birthday present,
he didn't even know his grandparents' names or where his parents were born.

Fast forward to Stanley Diamond's Dec. 31 announcement of new records on
JRI-Poland. The list included many towns in the Tarnopol region, so I went
looking for Harry's mishpacha. And they were there! It was Jan. 1, Harry's
92nd birthday, and there on my computer screen were the names of four of his
eight great-grandparents. Thank you, JRI-Poland, for the joy of introducing
Uncle Harry to Mendel, Ruchel, Hersch, and Ratze!
