need help with translation of great-grandfather's WWI notes 11 pages, typed #germany

Michael Moritz
 

My grandfather just discovered notes >from his father who fought for
Germany in WWI. The notes were transcribed and are typewritten.
It is 11 pages long. I'm hoping someone will be willing to translate
these documents for me, as I'm fascinated to see where my
great-grandfather fought and what his experience was like.
Thanks a lot.

New project - Immigration to South America #ukraine

Yoni Kupchik
 

Dear friends,

I'm happy to announce a new project - Indexing census records and passengers lists of Jews that left Europe with the aid of the Jewish Colonization Association (JCA). Around the beginning of the 20th century the JCA helped thousands of Jews flee >from Europe (including many >from Ukraine) and sent them to agricultural colonies mainly in Argentina, but also in Uruguay, Brazil, Canada, USA, and Palestine. The JCA kept the passengers lists and census records >from those colonies and those records are now stored in the Central Archives of the History of the Jewish People in Jerusalem, Israel.

During the project we will acquire copies of those records and generate a database of all the names. The amount of information in the Archives is enormous, surely consisting of more than 100,000 names. We need your help to make this happen. Help can be offered in three ways:

1) We need volunteers that can go to the archives in Jerusalem with a digital camera and take pictures of the documents. This is the main bottleneck of the project so if you think you might be able to help please contact me.

2) We need donations to cover the expenses of taking the pictures. In order to donate money please go to the JewishGen-erosity page (http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/), choose the Latin America SIG on the right, and then donate money to the first project on the list. Any donation is greatly appreciated!

3) We need transliterators. The records are in classical Latin alphabet and mostly easy to read. No knowledge in Spanish is required.

For more detailed information about the project please go here: http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/projectdesc/LA_Immigrants.html.

Please contact me directly to yonikupchik@....

JGSLA: "My 15 Grandmothers: Rediscovering Spanish Roots from the Inquisition" Thurs, May 15, 7:30PM #general

Join the Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles at our next program:

Thursday, May 15, 2014 At 7:30 PM
My 15 Grandmothers: Rediscovering Spanish Roots >from the Inquisition to the Present
University Synagogue 11960 Sunset Blvd W. Los Angeles 90049

Join author Genie Milgrom on her journey back in time, crossing the planet in
search of her Crypto Jewish or Marrano ancestors. Originally, she was able to find
15 grandmothers in an unbroken maternal lineage going back to the early 1500's and
successfully proved that her family had been Converso Jews >from before the Spanish
Inquisition. This Jewish lineage was traced back to a small village called
Fermoselle, in the province of Zamora, Spain right on the Duero River, across >from
Mogadouro, Portugal. Genie will show her short documentary, In Search of My Roots,
and then discuss how her family story evolved, the research she undertook, and the
writing of her two books.

Cuban-American Genie Milgrom's is a small book but a giant story. She is the poster
child for countless people, particularly in Spain and in the Americas, who would be
able, should they put their minds to it, to trace their ancestry through an
unbroken chain of Jewish mothers. Although the title of the book refers to only 15
grandmothers, by July this year when she attended the Zamora Sephardi conference in
the north of Spain, Milgrom had managed to tack on another seven, grandmothers,
bringing the total to twenty-two.

Genie recently completed a second, methodology-focused book: How I found my 15
Grandmothers. In her first book, My 15 Grandmothers, Genie takes the reader
through the entire journey >from growing up Catholic until she finds her
Crypto-Jewish lineage and embraces the religion of her ancestors. In her new book,
she leads you through all the steps necessary to find your own Jewish lineage
through Catholic and Inquisition records in Spain and Portugal. This is the first
guide of its kind which allows the reader to actually follow in her footsteps. This
method has proven successful for others that have also located their Crypto-Jewish
roots.

Both books will be available for sale at the program and Genie will be available to
sign books. To learn more about the two books go to:
http://geniemilgrom.com/howfound15.php and
http://geniemilgrom.com/my15g.php

Genie Milgrom is president of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Miami, the
executive vice president of the Society of Crypto Judaic Studies based in Colorado
Springs and the president of Tarbut Sefarad Fermoselle in Barcelona, an
organization that disseminates information on cultural findings of Crypto Jewry.

Gesher Galicia in NYC - Sunday, May 18 - "Austria, Poland, Ukraine: 3 Countries, 5 Archives, 12 Wonderful Days of Discovery" #galicia

Pamela Weisberger
 

You are invited to Gesher Galicia's spring regional meeting coming up
in New York City:

Sunday, May 18, 2014

11:00AM - 1:00PM

Center for Jewish History
Forchheimer Auditorium
15 West 16th St.
New York, NY 10011

"Austria Poland, Ukraine:
3 Countries, 5 Archives, 12 Wonderful Days of Discovery"

In addition to highlighting our new research projects and the All
Galicia Database there will be a special presentation.

GG board member, John Diener, >from Ottawa, Canada, and Pamela
Weisberger will talk about our trip in April 2013 to Austria, Poland,
and Ukraine. We timed the trip to attend the opening of the Museum
of the History of Polish Jews building in Warsaw, and over twelve days
we visited archives in Vienna, Warsaw, Przemysl, Lviv and Ternopil. We
toured the new Museum, viewed "Rotem," a powerful documentary on
Warsaw Ghetto fighter Simcha Rotem, heard a "Bund Band" jazz
concert, were treated to an incredible dinner with Piotr Pininski, great
grandson of Count Leonard Pininski, the magnate nobleman who once
owned the Galician town of Grzymalow where John's father and
Pamela's grandfather were born. After a short stop in Krakow, to give
a presentation to the local population trying to discover more about
their Jewish roots, we journeyed to Przemysl and toured the Polish
State Archives there. Later, in Ukraine, escorted by Alex and Natalie
Dunai, we visited Grzymalow, its ruined synagogue, cheder and Jewish
cemetery. Learn about the trip's highlights and get glimpses of the
Museum's core exhibition which will debut this October. We will also
explain the challenges of archival research in different locales (from
white gloves to burnt documents and moldy dust) and discover the
exceptional opportunity to connect past to present through
investigative genealogical research.

Admission is free. No reservations are necessary.

Directions to the Center for Jewish History are here:
http://www.cjh.org/p/9

Speakers:

John Diener is an Ottawa, Canada, businessman who is also the
vice-president of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Ottawa, and is on
the board of directors of Gesher Galicia. John co-sponsored the
filming of all matzevot in Zhvanets, Ukraine; the data on these 1,200
stones was submitted to JOWBR and he has amassed 2,500 names on
his family tree. John is shtetl leader for Grzymalow, Ukraine, and
writes a monthly column, Connecting the Branches, for the Ottawa
Jewish Bulletin. He is the proud owner of Saslove's Meat Market in the
center of Ottawa's historic marketplace, which has been an institution
in the city since 1954.

Pamela Weisberger is president and research coordinator of Gesher
Galicia and 1st V.P./program chair for the Jewish Genealogical Society
of Los Angeles. She is also a professional genealogist and has
conducted research in Polish, German, Israeli, Ukrainian, and Austrian
archives.

I am interested in any background on this name. There are some stray
references on the web to the name being of Polish-Jewish origin but it
has been difficult to piece together a true family history. The family
lore is that it is a Lithuania surname. Our great grandfather changed
the spelling >from Apanowicz to Apanovitch sometime after arriving in
America in the late 19th century. Thanks for any help or insights you
may be to provide!
