Yiddish Theatre and Vadeville #YiddishTheatre IMPORTANT REQUEST TO OUR DEAR JEWISHGEN FAMILY #yiddish

bounce-3064492-772983@...
 

This week we ask you to help JewishGen. 

We are a small, independent organization (with only 3 staff members)
that relies completely on the support of those who utilize our
services. We are not publicly funded and have more than 1,000
volunteers throughout the world. 

We're sustained by donations averaging about $75-$100. Only a small
percentage of the thousands of our users are in a position to
contribute funds financially. If everyone reading this right now made
a donation of $75-$100, our fundraiser would be done by the end of
the day. 

Investing in JewishGen allows us to continue our important work. >from
the JGFF (Family Finder), to our InfoFiles, Yizkor Book translations,
KehilaLinks and Databases, we are continually focused on improving
and expanding our offerings. It's because of our users support that we
added more than 1 million records this year, for a total of more than
22 million overall.

If JewishGen is useful to you, please take one minute and support our
important work. Everything we offer at JewishGen is at no cost. We
believe strongly that everyone should have access to free information
about their Jewish family history and information, and we need your help. 

Please support our important work, by visiting:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=64

Thank you in advance, we can't do this without you.

Year End Update - JOWBR Grows to Over 2.77 Million Records! #latinamerica

bounce-3062424-772964@...
 

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2015 year end update to the JOWBR
(JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial Registry) database. The JOWBR database
can be accessed at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/ If you're
a new JOWBR user, we recommend that you visit our screencast page at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Screencasts/ and take a look at
the first two explanatory screencasts.

This update, our largest ever, adds approximately 335,000 new records
and 15,800 new photos. The database is adding and/or updating 691
cemeteries. This update brings JOWBR's holdings to 2.774 million records
from almost 6,000 cemeteries / cemetery sections representing 121 countries!
(Explanatory files, maps and description files are in the process of being
added.)

Once again, donors for this update include a mix of individuals, Jewish
genealogical societies, historical societies and museums. We appreciate all
our donor's submissions and the transliteration work done by a faithful
group of JewishGen volunteers.

The most significant addition to JOWBR comes >from the Association of
Jewish Genealogy of Argentina (AJGA). Due to their efforts, we have been
able to add approximately 225,000 >from Argentina and an additional 25,000
records >from other South American countries. Thank you AJGA!

Along with the sets >from Argentina, Chile and Uruguay, other
significant additions to the database include collections >from Slutsk
(Belarus), France, Germany, Moldova, Serbia and the United States. Please
check the cemetery inventory at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm for a complete
listing.

JOWBR continues to add thousands of records of Jewish veteran burials
in military cemeteries predominantly >from World War I in France, Italy and
Belgium and other cemeteries around the world.

This update also includes our first records >from 6 new countries, some
are for veteran burials; Chile, Iran, Macedonia, New Guinea, Nigeria, and
Zambia.

Visit http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm for
a complete listing of cemeteries currently in the JOWBR database.

I want to particularly thank Eric Feinstein who has been helping me to
find and gain permission to add many of the German towns in addition to
records >from under-represented countries. Eric's group of volunteers
includes Sandra Bennett, Julie Bolton, Sharon Duckman, Aaron Goldberg, Henry
Graupner, Ann Meddin Hellman, Maurice Kessler, Harriet Mayer, Hans Nord,
Irina Roskin, Adina Schwartz, Suzanne Tarica, and Sari Tuomioja. In
addition, without our volunteer transliterators, led by Gilberto Jugend, we
would not be able to add the information >from some very difficult to read
photos.

We appreciate all the work our donors have done and encourage you to
make additional submissions. Whether you work on a cemetery / cemetery
section individually or consider a group project for your local Society,
temple or other group, it's your submissions that help grow the JOWBR
database and make it possible for researchers and family members to find
answers they otherwise might not. Please also consider other organizations
you may be affiliated with that may already have done cemetery indexing that
would consider having their records included in the JOWBR database.

cemeteries. This update brings JOWBR's holdings to 2.774 million records
from almost 6,000 cemeteries / cemetery sections representing 121 countries!
(Explanatory files, maps and description files are in the process of being
added.)

Once again, donors for this update include a mix of individuals, Jewish
genealogical societies, historical societies and museums. We appreciate all
our donor's submissions and the transliteration work done by a faithful
group of JewishGen volunteers.

The most significant addition to JOWBR comes >from the Association of
Jewish Genealogy of Argentina (AJGA). Due to their efforts, we have been
able to add approximately 225,000 >from Argentina and an additional 25,000
records >from other South American countries. Thank you AJGA!

Along with the sets >from Argentina, Chile and Uruguay, other
significant additions to the database include collections >from Slutsk
(Belarus), France, Germany, Moldova, Serbia and the United States. Please
check the cemetery inventory at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm for a complete
listing.

JOWBR continues to add thousands of records of Jewish veteran burials
in military cemeteries predominantly >from World War I in France, Italy and
Belgium and other cemeteries around the world.

This update also includes our first records >from 6 new countries, some
are for veteran burials; Chile, Iran, Macedonia, New Guinea, Nigeria, and
Zambia.

Visit http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm for
a complete listing of cemeteries currently in the JOWBR database.

I want to particularly thank Eric Feinstein who has been helping me to
find and gain permission to add many of the German towns in addition to
records >from under-represented countries. Eric's group of volunteers
includes Sandra Bennett, Julie Bolton, Sharon Duckman, Aaron Goldberg, Henry
Graupner, Ann Meddin Hellman, Maurice Kessler, Harriet Mayer, Hans Nord,
Irina Roskin, Adina Schwartz, Suzanne Tarica, and Sari Tuomioja. In
addition, without our volunteer transliterators, led by Gilberto Jugend, we
would not be able to add the information >from some very difficult to read
photos.

We appreciate all the work our donors have done and encourage you to
make additional submissions. Whether you work on a cemetery / cemetery
section individually or consider a group project for your local Society,
temple or other group, it's your submissions that help grow the JOWBR
database and make it possible for researchers and family members to find
answers they otherwise might not. Please also consider other organizations
you may be affiliated with that may already have done cemetery indexing that
would consider having their records included in the JOWBR database.

Nolan Altman
 

JewishGen is proud to announce its year-end 2015 Update for the Memorial
Plaques Database (MPD). The MPD database can be accessed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/ The MPD database includes the
data >from plaques and Yizkor lists >from synagogue and other organizations.
Many of these sources include patronymic information.

This update added approximately 23,000 records and 15,500 photos >from Canada
and the US. These records come >from 40 different synagogues and other
institutions. (Explanatory files, maps and description files are in the
process of being added.)

We believe that the MPD is a good example of how users of JewishGen's
databases can "give back". If you are a member of a synagogue or other
organization with memorial plaques or Yizkor lists, please consider helping
us to grow this database. You can find more information on submitting data
at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/Submit.htm If you have
additional questions, please contact me directly.

Records for Calmatui and Sarata-Razesi #bessarabia

Steve Herberman
 

I just learned that I had HERBERMAN ancestors that lived in Calmatui in the Cahul district and also
Sarata-Razesi in the Leova area of Moldova between 1852-1880. I obtained this information >from an
1880 marriage record in Dranceni, Romania. Does anyone have suggestions as to where I can look to
locate possible civil records >from these towns? On the Moldova National Archives website it specifies
that the archives will not do research for individuals and that a researcher can be hired or a visit be
made in-person.

Is their a recommended researcher in that area that someone could suggest? There is also an archives
called the Archives of Ancient Acts that may be another possibility. But perhaps the records of these
towns did not survive. I'm just beginning researching this, besides Jewish Gen and Routes to Roots there
is very little info on these towns as far as records or a jewish population that lived there.

In the Bessarabia Business Directory of 1924 their are two listings for a GUBERMAN family in Calmatui
that were merchants. On the 1880 HERBERMAN marriage record >from Dranceni they are listed as
merchants. These names sound very similar to me so perhaps there is a connection.

Thanks in advance for any help or ideas.

Best Regards,
