Yizkor Book Project, March 2016 #latinamerica

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Yet another month has whooshed past and it's the time to let you know what
has been accomplished in the Yizkor Book Project over the last 31 days. I
would like to point out some particularly notable projects that were added
or updated in March:

The first was the completion of the online placement of the translation of
the Golshany, Belarus Yizkor Book, which was generously donated to our
project by Jack Leibman and we are most thankful for this significant
donation.

Another notable addition was the addition of the "Biographical Dictionary of
Jewish Resistance" book which was provided to us by Yad Vashem. The list of
the names appearing in it was painstakingly translated for us by Shalom
Bronstein and it contains an enormous amount of information on a large
number of Jewish Partisans and is definitely worth your perusal.

I am also pleased to note that Esther Weinschelbaum has kindly sent us a
Hebrew translation of the Kamen Kashirskiy Book which joins the ever growing
Hebrew translations about former Jewish communities in the Ukraine and
Esther is well-deserving of our grateful thanks.

Finally, as I've noted before, the Yizkor Books in Print Project doesn't
stop for a minute and just this last month, we are happy to announce that
the publishing of "The Book of Dembitz". This and the many other books
already published by the YBIP Project are in high demand. Of course, there
are still many books waiting to be published and the work goes on as we
"speak".

And now for all the changes and additions that were carried out in the

Greetings...here in JewishGen land we are dedicated to making the
search easier by promoting better organization ( (want to find the
items quickly?) and research methodology (need to remember where you
got that piece of data?). Our classes are detailed on
www.jewishgen.org/education

Organize & Research Online (starting April 21st) is for advanced
beginners who have used Ancestry and other online databases and still
have questions or want to really organize information. It focuses on
your immigrant ancestors and their immediate families in the United
States. See the full description of the lessons etc on
http://www.jewishgen.org/education/description.asp?course=40046
Highlights: Lessons are read/downloaded at your own pace; this is a
one on one personal mentoring program where students post an ancestral
branch, set goals for their research, and work with the instructor
24/7

We also offer one of our Basic courses, Lets Get Organized in May.
This text based course with daily exercises is part of the Value-Added
Services program, and we waive the tuition for those who have
contributed $100 to our general fund within the last 12 months....And
we're planning a May Value Added Class for the new Belarus Website!

Notes: The sedar can be a wonderful opportunity to exchange
information and encourage family interest. Also, consider the 5 minute
videos on navigating JewishGen and its key databases on the bottom of

Immigration record for Max/Mordechai and Sarah PORTNER betw 1885 - 1887 #general

Ron Kaminker <ron@...>
 

Looking for immigration record for Max/Mordechai PORTNER b. 1857 and
wife Sara (nee WASSERKRUG) b. 1860

Came over with two children - Bertha b. 1882 and Annie b 1885 (I
assume had Yiddish names at time of Arrival)

Census record says came over in 1885, but unlikely since Annie was
born in Europe in Dec 1885.

Latest they could have come over was Nov 1887 since they had a child
in St Louis then.

Tried all of the wildcards - but no luck. All census records here
have them with the exact spelling of PORTNER

Thank you in advance - everybody has been so generous with their
time and assistance on previous posts.

However, please contact me *before* you start, to make sure someone
else has not already provided the solution.

Thanks again
Ron Kaminker

Kleinberg buried in Metz cemetery #general

My PGGF, Benjamin Kleinberg, was buried in Esch cemetery. The grave
site is DD1-14. I am interested in knowing if there is a gravestone.
If so, can I have a picture taken? Also, I would be very interested
in obtaining pictures, as well as any other documents available, of
the other Kleinbergs that are buried there. In addition, it would be
of interest to me regarding information of who was involved with his
burial payment, etc.
Thank you.
