I recently found a reference to an ancestor having lived in Rostov. I found
a couple of Rostovs in Russia but did not believe they were thre place. >from
the ShtetlSeeker hyperlink on the Jewish Gen page I found a Rostov in
Belarus, 100.9 miles SSE >from Minsk. However when I access the ShtetlFinder
from the Belarus SIG site, no such Rostov can be found. How can that be?
I also would like to add my thanks to Dave, Elsebeth, and
Edward for the all their incredible efforts on our behalf.

Svir Cemetery #belarus

Hello Folks,
I was wondering if anyone knows whether there is a Jewish cemetery
still in existence in Svir, Belarus? >from some documentation I've received
from the Lithuaian archives, it seems that my husband's great-grandfather
died and was buried in Svir in 1908. I remember looking the IAJGS
International Jewish Cemetery Project
a while back but I can't recall. I checked today but the page is undergoing
construction.
If anyone knows, I'd appreciate a response.

Perhaps I'm a bit thick, but how is it that to copy and I assume
redistribute-for-profit Yizkor Books, the NYBC "only" needs permission from
one of the many libraries in the world who hold copies of these books, but
we need specific permission >from specific copyright holders to translate the
books as a public service? Am I / are we missing something?

Last week NYBC signed a historic agreement with the New York Public
Library to digitize its collection of yizkor books. By the end of
2001, Aaron estimates, the reprints will be released.

There is no indication of the cost of a reprinted volume. However,
the easy availability of very scarce titles will be a boon to
translators.

Announcing ShtetlSchleppers 2001 Schedules #yizkorbooks

Paul W. Ginsburg <pginsburg@...>
 

Can you remember what you did when you first discovered the name of your
ancestral shtetl? Did you try to find it on a map, or did you know to go
right to JewishGen's Shtetlseeker where lo and behold, there it was with a
star marking the exact location. You may have looked at that spot over and
over and began to dream about going there yourself someday. If that has been
your dream, it can become reality. JewishGen ShtetlSchleppers can take you
there.

Let 2001 be the year when you will actually visit that shtetl of your
ancestry, walk in the footsteps of your parents, your grandparents, your
great grand parents . As the Talmudic saying goes..."if not now, when? Let
this be the year that "when" becomes "now".

Explore the itineraries which take you to a hub city, provide the best in
touring sites of Jewish interest, introduce you to local leaders and then,
with your own private guide/driver/translator, really **live** the dream.
visit the place where your family originated. To get a better idea of making
this work for you..
<http://www.jewishgen.org/shtetlschleppers/>. And what about London2001,
the International Summer Seminar?

Whether your plans include visiting before or after, but definitely 'in
conjunction with' London2001, the International Jewish Genealogy Summer
Seminar, be sure to sign up early . You will not only be sure of reserving
space, but most importantly you'll allow plenty of time for productive
pre-research.

The plans and schedules for London2001 are now online and linked >from the
JewishGen home page. It's a tremendous program with more than enough to meet
every interest. Have you looked, have you made your conference or hotel
reservation? Before you make your airline reservations, come and take a look
at
http://www.jewishgen.org/London2001/travel.htm

With advance planning and some smooth scheduling on the part of Joanna
Fletcher, JewishGen's ShtetlSchlepper Travel Manager it may be possible to
include London in the flight package for a pre- or post- conference
ShtetlSchlepper package enabling savings on airfares.

Finally, to accommodate those who have either already visited their
ancestral origins or have not yet reached that point in their research to
take that step, ShtetlSchleppers has created two or three-country cultural
tours
where you can visit Prague & Vienna, or Prague, Vienna & Budapest, all three
known for their breathtaking architecture and rich in Jewish history. It's
all online awaiting your visit.
-scheduled group departures,
-customized independent travel,
-two or three country cultural tours, and finally
- favorable air fares >from most cities to London2001

So whatever your dreams, whatever your travel interests may be in
conjunction with the London conference, Let JewishGen ShtetlSchleppers take
you there!

Re: Suggest JewishGenDatabase of active Landsmanschaften #galicia

I have a booklet >from the Opoler Society in New York, dated 1912-1929. I'm
not even sure exactly what it is since it is mostly in Hebrew, except for
some of the ads and the list of members. I would be happy to copy it and
send it to someone who could translate it and then post it on JewishGen and
/or the appropriate SIG lists. There are pictures of all the members and
their addresses at the time (I think it was printed in 1929). There are
photos of all the members, as well as the banquet arrangement committee, so
perhaps it is a journal that was published in conjunction with a charity
event because there are personal and business ads (most of which are in
English).

Please let me know if anyone is interested in translating this document.
There are 45 pages, but some contain photos and ads in English.

My husband's grandfather, Hyman Penner, was a member of this Opoler Society,
and he was >from Galicia, but if there is someone else who would be interested
in this information, or some other part of JewishGen, please forward this
message to them.
