People always complain how there are no records on JewishGen for their

included some cool old records I found in fixing that issue for my own
family.)

Yizkor Books #YizkorBooks Yizkor Book Project, August 2017 #yizkorbooks

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

As always, in that relatively short period of time called a month,
quite a great deal has transpired in the Yizkor Book Project.

To begin with, a considerable number of new Translations Funds were
recently set up for the following projects:

- Brzesko, Poland (Memorial book of Briegel-Brzesko and vicinity)
- Dubno, Ukraine (Dubno; a Memorial to the Jewish community of Dubno, Wolyn)
- Narach (Kobylnik), Belarus (Memorial Book of Kobylnik)
- Voranava, Belarus (Voronovo: Memorial Book to the Martyrs of Voronovo)
- Wislica, Poland (Memorial book of Wislica; the Wislich yizkor book)
- Zakroczym, Poland (My Zakroczym)

For all these projects, the project coordinators for them have
realized that in order to accomplish the professional translation of
the book, the best idea would be to set up a dedicated fund. The idea
of these funds involves relies on the financial support for the
researchers of these particular communities - who join together to see
the translation of these books available to everyone. If any of the
above are "your" communities and you have yet to donate to the
relevant fund, please go to the JewishGen-erosity page, whose link
appears at the end of this message to carry out the donation.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Avraham Groll,
JewishGen Director, and Rebecca Schaeffer, his assistant, their much
appreciated assistance in taking care of the logistics involved around
these funds, helping us to go forward with the projects in a timely
fashion.

Over and above financial support for the projects, we do have a
dedicated and, frankly, amazing band of volunteers who help the Yizkor
Book Project make significant progress each and every month. Still, we
are always on the lookout for more volunteers able to devote as much
time as they feel comfortable with, to assist in translating and
editing. In particular, we are currently looking for people who can
read Hebrew or Yiddish and have a background in editing to assist us
in this field - if this describes yourself, I would love to hear from
you.

Other than that, our Yizkor Books in Print project continues to
regularly roll out new books, the last being "God's Sabbatical Years"
- the memoirs of Holocaust survivor, Alan Weiler, as related by
author, Peter Harris. Thanks go out to Joel Alpert and his team for
the considerable time, thought and energy which was invested in the
publishing this book and all the other books made available by the
YBIP Project over the last few years.

As the High Holidays are just around the corner, I would like to wish
all of you a Shana Tova U'Metuka - a sweet New Year. Wishing you a
year of happiness and good health and realizations of all your dreams.
At this time, I would also like to wish our dear friends in Houston an
early return to normality so that they can join us in happily
welcoming in this new year.

out in the Yizkor Book Project in August.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Avraham Groll,
JewishGen Director, and Rebecca Schaeffer, his assistant, their much

Over and above financial support for the projects, we do have a
dedicated and, frankly, amazing band of volunteers who help the Yizkor
Book Project make significant progress each and every month. Still, we
are always on the lookout for more volunteers able to devote as much
time as they feel comfortable with, to assist in translating and
editing. In particular, we are currently looking for people who can
read Hebrew or Yiddish and have a background in editing to assist us
in this field - if this describes yourself, I would love to hear from
you.

Other than that, our Yizkor Books in Print project continues to
regularly roll out new books, the last being "God's Sabbatical Years"
- the memoirs of Holocaust survivor, Alan Weiler, as related by
author, Peter Harris. Thanks go out to Joel Alpert and his team for
the considerable time, thought and energy which was invested in the
publishing this book and all the other books made available by the
YBIP Project over the last few years.

As the High Holidays are just around the corner, I would like to wish
all of you a Shana Tova U'Metuka - a sweet New Year. Wishing you a
year of happiness and good health and realizations of all your dreams.
At this time, I would also like to wish our dear friends in Houston an
early return to normality so that they can join us in happily
welcoming in this new year.

Shalom,

As always, in that relatively short period of time called a month,
quite a great deal has transpired in the Yizkor Book Project.

To begin with, a considerable number of new Translations Funds were
recently set up for the following projects:

- Brzesko, Poland (Memorial book of Briegel-Brzesko and vicinity)
- Dubno, Ukraine (Dubno; a Memorial to the Jewish community of Dubno, Wolyn)
- Narach (Kobylnik), Belarus (Memorial Book of Kobylnik)
- Voranava, Belarus (Voronovo: Memorial Book to the Martyrs of Voronovo)
- Wislica, Poland (Memorial book of Wislica; the Wislich yizkor book)
- Zakroczym, Poland (My Zakroczym)

For all these projects, the project coordinators for them have
realized that in order to accomplish the professional translation of
the book, the best idea would be to set up a dedicated fund. The idea
of these funds involves relies on the financial support for the
researchers of these particular communities - who join together to see
the translation of these books available to everyone. If any of the
above are "your" communities and you have yet to donate to the
relevant fund, please go to the JewishGen-erosity page, whose link

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Avraham Groll,

dedicated and, frankly, amazing band of volunteers who help the Yizkor
Book Project make significant progress each and every month. Still, we
are always on the lookout for more volunteers able to devote as much
time as they feel comfortable with, to assist in translating and
editing. In particular, we are currently looking for people who can
read Hebrew or Yiddish and have a background in editing to assist us

author, Peter Harris. Thanks go out to Joel Alpert and his team for
the considerable time, thought and energy which was invested in the
publishing this book and all the other books made available by the

I have not updated my Jekabpils Kehilalink for a number of years. If you
have any family connections to Jekabpils I would love to hear >from you. I
would be happy to put photos of Ancestors on the Ancestors photos page. The
photos should be in jpg format and not of living persons. If you have
travelled to Jekabpils and have photos or information about your trip please
send them to me.

Prior to the 1917 Russian revolution, Kreutzburg (Krustpils), a small
shtetl, was located in the Latvian part of the Pale of Settlement and
Jekabpils, a large town, was outside the Pale. They were separated by the
Daugava River. Jekabpils fell under Courland and Krustspils under Vitebsk.
After 1917, the Pale was done away with and Kreutzburg (Krustpils) became
part of Jekabpils. I am happy to include photos or information relating to
Krustpils on the Jekabpils page.

I have not updated my Jekabpils Kehilalink for a number of years. If you
have any family connections to Jekabpils I would love to hear >from you. I
would be happy to put photos of Ancestors on the Ancestors photos page. The
photos should be in jpg format and not of living persons. If you have
travelled to Jekabpils and have photos or information about your trip please
send them to me.

Prior to the 1917 Russian revolution, Kreutzburg (Krustpils), a small
shtetl, was located in the Latvian part of the Pale of Settlement and
Jekabpils, a large town, was outside the Pale. They were separated by the
Daugava River. Jekabpils fell under Courland and Krustspils under Vitebsk.
After 1917, the Pale was done away with and Kreutzburg (Krustpils) became
part of Jekabpils. I am happy to include photos or information relating to
Krustpils on the Jekabpils page.

Scandinavia SIG #Scandinavia Yizkor Book Project, August 2017 #scandinavia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

As always, in that relatively short period of time called a month,
quite a great deal has transpired in the Yizkor Book Project.

To begin with, a considerable number of new Translations Funds were
recently set up for the following projects:

- Brzesko, Poland (Memorial book of Briegel-Brzesko and vicinity)
- Dubno, Ukraine (Dubno; a Memorial to the Jewish community of Dubno, Wolyn)
- Narach (Kobylnik), Belarus (Memorial Book of Kobylnik)
- Voranava, Belarus (Voronovo: Memorial Book to the Martyrs of Voronovo)
- Wislica, Poland (Memorial book of Wislica; the Wislich yizkor book)
- Zakroczym, Poland (My Zakroczym)

For all these projects, the project coordinators for them have
realized that in order to accomplish the professional translation of
the book, the best idea would be to set up a dedicated fund. The idea
of these funds involves relies on the financial support for the
researchers of these particular communities - who join together to see
the translation of these books available to everyone. If any of the
above are "your" communities and you have yet to donate to the
relevant fund, please go to the JewishGen-erosity page, whose link
appears at the end of this message to carry out the donation.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Avraham Groll,
JewishGen Director, and Rebecca Schaeffer, his assistant, their much
appreciated assistance in taking care of the logistics involved around
these funds, helping us to go forward with the projects in a timely
fashion.

Over and above financial support for the projects, we do have a
dedicated and, frankly, amazing band of volunteers who help the Yizkor
Book Project make significant progress each and every month. Still, we
are always on the lookout for more volunteers able to devote as much
time as they feel comfortable with, to assist in translating and
editing. In particular, we are currently looking for people who can
read Hebrew or Yiddish and have a background in editing to assist us
in this field - if this describes yourself, I would love to hear from
you.

Other than that, our Yizkor Books in Print project continues to
regularly roll out new books, the last being "God's Sabbatical Years"
- the memoirs of Holocaust survivor, Alan Weiler, as related by
author, Peter Harris. Thanks go out to Joel Alpert and his team for
the considerable time, thought and energy which was invested in the
publishing this book and all the other books made available by the
YBIP Project over the last few years.

As the High Holidays are just around the corner, I would like to wish
all of you a Shana Tova U'Metuka - a sweet New Year. Wishing you a
year of happiness and good health and realizations of all your dreams.
At this time, I would also like to wish our dear friends in Houston an
early return to normality so that they can join us in happily
welcoming in this new year.
