Yizkor Book Project, November 2012 #dna

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

November saw quite a few new projects being added. One of the books that was
added "Out of the Depths" is not a Yizkor book but it does contain a
detailed listings of Lithuanian rabbis and yeshiva students killed in the
Holocaust and, as such, provides us with unique information. We are very
fortunate that the volunteers in Yad Vashem extracted this list of names
which we are able to share as we do with the many other necrologies
generously received >from this institution.

If you are asking out loud "How can I participate in the marvelously
interesting Yizkor Book Project?" and people around you are looking at you
puzzedly, I will reply. There is a myriad of ways that you take part - if
you can translate, transliterate, type or edit we have something in our
project for you. If you would like to organize a translation of your
ancestral community, all you need is some organizational skills and
motivation to get the project going. In short, if you would like to become
involved, there is certainly some way you can take part and I will be happy
to hear >from you.

DNA project for area of Czestochowa and Radomsko, Poland #dna

jeffwexler@...
 

The Czestochowa-Radomsko Area Research Group (www.crarg.com) has started a
Y-DNA, mtDNA, and autosomal DNA geographical project for people who have done
DNA testing through Family Tree DNA or any other testing company (such as
23andme) and who trace their direct paternal or maternal lines to Jews >from
(not surprisingly) Czestochowa, Radomsko, and other towns within a radius of
about 30 miles. (A map of CRARG's core towns is posted at
http://www.crarg.org/core-towns-map.php.)

For further information and to join, please visit the JewishCRARG project
website (http://www.familytreedna.com/public/jewishcrarg/). If you have tested
with a company other than Family Tree DNA, you can e-mail your results to Doron
Yacobi (03pawn@...), who will add these results to the project's data.

For further information, you are welcome to contact Doron at the above e-mail
address or me at jeffwexler@....

Joint JRI-Poland and JHI Projects #general

Howard Fink <howgen@...>
 

I am pleased to announce that the various web pages describing the many joint
projects between JRI-Poland and the Jewish Historical Institute, Warsaw (JHI)have
recently been updated. In Polish the Institute is known as Zydowski Instytut
Historyczny (ZIH). Most of these projects have been around for some time, but all
the web pages have been updated with a new style (thanks to JRI-Poland Design
Coordinator Bryan Langer) as well as better sample images, surname and town lists,
and most importantly new order forms.

The current projects are:

 Kraksw Marriage & Banns Registers, 1877 - 1939
 Wyszkow Banns, 1890 - 1910
 Zniesienie (4 km NE of Lwsw) Death Records, 1914
 Dzialoszyce Birth, Death, & Marriage Supplements, 1829/1846
 Wroclaw Matzevah/Gravestone Files, ca 1900 - 1939
 Kaskada (District of Warszawa) Birth, Marriage, & Death Records, 1915
 Biala Podlaska, Jewish Census, 1939
 Warsaw Cemetery Records and Photographs
 Polish Aliyah Passports
 Warsaw Ghetto Death Cards
 Zareby Koscielne Jewish Vital Records
 Kutno Jewish Community Death Records 1830 - 1840

In addition to the traditional information found in Birth, Marriage or Death
records the data includes other nuggets of family connections that can make
family history more interesting.

Support for many of these projects has been provided by the Jewish Genealogical
Society, Inc. (New York).

Please take a fresh look at these projects, either >from the link on our home
page, http://www.jri-poland.org/, or directly >from this link:
http://www.jri-poland.org/jri-jhi.htm

Please note that the JHI is currently updating their own web site and many of
the links are broken. As soon as the JHI web site has been updated we will
correct any JRI-Poland links to these new pages.

Re: variations of the given name Liebmann in old German documents #germany

Hansmartin Unger <hansmartin.unger@...>
 

in old documents will be found a several versions for the same name.

For example: Lippmann for Liebmann or Helene-Henriette-Hünle-Mina-Päsle
or Sara/Sofie.

Hello,
I'm going through German records >from the early 19th century.
And I'm looking for a particular family, Liebmann DURLACHER, with a
wife named Haffele and looking for their children
I'm finding several records that fit perfectly, except at times the name
is written Lippman, very clearly.
Same wives first and fathers name.
I'm wondering if the name Liebmann, could be heard and written as Lippmann,
Similar to the way a "D" could be confused with a "T".
Or are these two different people with the same wife's name?
Thank you for any explanation offered, Take care,

Shalom,

This month my thoughts go out to the people in the communities of southern
Israel who were indiscriminately fired at by the terrorists in Gaza in
mid-November. Although the Holocaust is something of the past, hatred for
Jews is sadly still with us.

November saw quite a few new projects being added. One of the books that was
added "Out of the Depths" is not a Yizkor book but it does contain a
detailed listings of Lithuanian rabbis and yeshiva students killed in the
Holocaust and, as such, provides us with unique information. We are very
fortunate that the volunteers in Yad Vashem extracted this list of names
which we are able to share as we do with the many other necrologies
generously received >from this institution.

If you are asking out loud "How can I participate in the marvelously
interesting Yizkor Book Project?" and people around you are looking at you
puzzedly, I will reply. There is a myriad of ways that you take part - if
you can translate, transliterate, type or edit we have something in our
project for you. If you would like to organize a translation of your
ancestral community, all you need is some organizational skills and
motivation to get the project going. In short, if you would like to become
involved, there is certainly some way you can take part and I will be happy
to hear >from you.

Now to facts and figures - as far as the November figures go, during this
last month we have added these 7 new projects:

Dear Brian,
I'd assume they're the same.

I've been working with records that have spellings such as Dafit LEFI
until the next scribe comes along and spells it David LEVI. Rifka can be
spelled Riwke or any number of other ways, and don't get me started on
vowels...
