Definitely "Sholem", since his name was Shalom.Before US, the shortened
version Sol didn't exist in Poland/Lithuania/Russia/Belarus..
Sol is a pure americanized name of Solomon/Shlomo/Zalman/Salman and of
italian name Salvatore(Sol or Sal)

Any idea how Szolin would be pronounced, and how it might have derived
from Sol/Shalom?
Thanks for your input,

MODERATOR'S NOTE: Vilnius was considered part of inter-war Poland, so
in 1922 names would have been spelled with Polish conventions, and
the letters "Sz" were pronounced "Sh".

Translation Help Please #austria-czech

Re my request for help - I sent two requests as I hadn't seen my first
posting, or, in fact, any Austria-CzechSIG digests for nearly a week and
thought my first request had disappeared into the ether somehow. Many
apologies for sending the repeat request.

Many thanks to Jackie, Omer and Eva for their kind attempts to interpret
and work out what happened to Margarethe Ehrlich Friedmann. However, it
seems that the information >from Magistrat der Stadt Wien is possibly
ambiguous and so I have not been able to find out what happened to her.

Again, many thanks to everyone

Yizkor Book Project, June 2012 #austria-czech

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

As our ultimate aim in the Yizkor Book Project is to see complete
translations of books online, it's particularly gratifying when we do reach
this goal and, in this past month, we managed to achieve it twice. The first
project was the Csenger, Hungary Yizkor book (Memorial Book of the Martyrs
of Csenger, Porcsalma and Vicinity) whose translation was gratefully donated
by Renee and Stan Fishkind, and the second was the Gorodets, Belarus Yizkor
book (Horodetz; history of a town, 1142-1942) which was translated in its
entirety by Hannah Kadmon and Eugene Sucov and my high praise goes out to
all these people for seeing these projects to their successful completion.

This means that we now have just over 80 projects that are complete books
and there are many others now that are close to completion, with yet many
others for which the road ahead to reach this goal is long and winding. Of
course, reaching this goal requires many, many hours of volunteer and
professional work but actually achieving this is very, very gratifying and
will provide a fountain of knowledge to so many. These days we are also
offering the option to print hardcopies of the completed translations,
something which has proven to be very popular and we're very encouraged by
the positive response received, so far, to these carefully prepared and
presented volumes. If you wish to learn more about the YBIP (Yizkor Books in
Print) Project, you are welcome to visit
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html

Over the last month or so, a number of new Translation Fund projects have
been set up to enable people to help some of the Yizkor Book projects along
financially. The projects recently added were for the following books:

- Dumbraveni, Moldova (There once was a town - a descriptive monograph of
the town of Dombroven)
- Glinyany, Ukraine (In the Diaspora and in the Homeland)
- Nowy Dwor Mazowiecki, Poland (Memorial book of Nowy-Dwor)

If you would like to know more about these projects or any of the others
that are currently running, you are invited to visit the JewishGen-erosity
page at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23

Finally, I would assume that this report finds many of you preparing for
their trip to the 32nd IAJGS International Conference. Unfortunately, I will
not be there but Jan Meisels Allen has kindly agreed to lead the Yizkor Book
Birds of a Feather meeting and hope as many of you will take part and be
enriched by Jan's wide knowledge in this field. Other than that, I do wish
all of the participants in the conference a very fruitful and rewarding
experience.

Now to facts and figures As far as the June figures go, during this last
month we have added these 4 new projects:

Isidor WINTER #austria-czech

I am still researching my great grandfather Isidor WINTER born Kopcany near
Holic in Slovakia in 1839. I would like to find out the names of his parents
and his siblings if possible.
In a letter I received some years ago in 2008 the Slovak National Archives
wrote me that "the entire records for the years 1824 to 1845 (for the
registry records of Holic) do not state the names of mothers".
I wonder if anyone else has had this problem and if anyone can shed light on
why this may have been the case? I realise patriarchy was alive and well at
that time and in that place but it seems very strange to me and I am
curious.

are updates to births, marriages and deaths >from Beltsy (now Bal=C5=A3i,
Moldova), Soroki (now Soroka, Moldova), Izmail (now Izmail, Ukraine)
or Novoselitsa (now Novoseltsy, Ukraine). There are now more than 711,
400 records in the JewishGen Romania Database for Romania and Moldova,
from a variety of sources, including: voter lists, census records,
business directories, vital records, diplomatic records, yizkor books,
and others.

The database can be accessed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Romania/ or through the Ukraine
database at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Ukraine/ .

We are still working on more records >from Bendery area, Kishinev and
Novoseltsy in what was Bessarabia.

We are also excited to announce another new project. We are in the
process of obtaining birth, marriage and death records >from the
following towns in Iasi Judet (County). If you have roots in any of
these places now is your opportunity to help yourself, as well as many
others in the ROM-SIG, now and in the future!

Bivolari --- Births, marriages and deaths - unknown at this time as no
index available

Harlau --- Births, marriages and deaths 1867-1908

Iasi --- Births, marriages and deaths 1865-1910

Lespezi --- Births, marriages and deaths 1870 and other years

will be unable to do this project. If you are researching family from
any of these towns please join in and help!

Please donate to the Iasi County Records Project at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=
=3D20

Because there is up to a two month delay before we get the financial
report and we want to get the records as soon as possible please tell
us what you
donated at http://tinyurl.com/report-donation.

We need Volunteers to transcribe these records. Records are in
handwritten Romanian. Other translators are also needed for German and

Shalom,

As our ultimate aim in the Yizkor Book Project is to see complete
translations of books online, it's particularly gratifying when we do reach
this goal and, in this past month, we managed to achieve it twice. The first
project was the Csenger, Hungary Yizkor book (Memorial Book of the Martyrs
of Csenger, Porcsalma and Vicinity) whose translation was gratefully donated
by Renee and Stan Fishkind, and the second was the Gorodets, Belarus Yizkor
book (Horodetz; history of a town, 1142-1942) which was translated in its
entirety by Hannah Kadmon and Eugene Sucov and my high praise goes out to
all these people for seeing these projects to their successful completion.

This means that we now have just over 80 projects that are complete books
and there are many others now that are close to completion, with yet many
others for which the road ahead to reach this goal is long and winding. Of
course, reaching this goal requires many, many hours of volunteer and
professional work but actually achieving this is very, very gratifying and
will provide a fountain of knowledge to so many. These days we are also
offering the option to print hardcopies of the completed translations,
something which has proven to be very popular and we're very encouraged by
the positive response received, so far, to these carefully prepared and
presented volumes. If you wish to learn more about the YBIP (Yizkor Books in
Print) Project, you are welcome to visit
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html

Over the last month or so, a number of new Translation Fund projects have
been set up to enable people to help some of the Yizkor Book projects along
financially. The projects recently added were for the following books:

- Dumbraveni, Moldova (There once was a town - a descriptive monograph of
the town of Dombroven)
- Glinyany, Ukraine (In the Diaspora and in the Homeland)
- Nowy Dwor Mazowiecki, Poland (Memorial book of Nowy-Dwor)

If you would like to know more about these projects or any of the others
that are currently running, you are invited to visit the JewishGen-erosity
page at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23

Finally, I would assume that this report finds many of you preparing for
their trip to the 32nd IAJGS International Conference. Unfortunately, I will
not be there but Jan Meisels Allen has kindly agreed to lead the Yizkor Book
Birds of a Feather meeting and hope as many of you will take part and be
enriched by Jan's wide knowledge in this field. Other than that, I do wish
all of the participants in the conference a very fruitful and rewarding
experience.

Now to facts and figures As far as the June figures go, during this last

Yizkor Book Project, June 2012 #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

As our ultimate aim in the Yizkor Book Project is to see complete
translations of books online, it's particularly gratifying when we do reach
this goal and, in this past month, we managed to achieve it twice. The first
project was the Csenger, Hungary Yizkor book (Memorial Book of the Martyrs
of Csenger, Porcsalma and Vicinity) whose translation was gratefully donated
by Renee and Stan Fishkind, and the second was the Gorodets, Belarus Yizkor
book (Horodetz; history of a town, 1142-1942) which was translated in its
entirety by Hannah Kadmon and Eugene Sucov and my high praise goes out to
all these people for seeing these projects to their successful completion.

This means that we now have just over 80 projects that are complete books
and there are many others now that are close to completion, with yet many
others for which the road ahead to reach this goal is long and winding. Of
course, reaching this goal requires many, many hours of volunteer and
professional work but actually achieving this is very, very gratifying and
will provide a fountain of knowledge to so many. These days we are also
offering the option to print hardcopies of the completed translations,
something which has proven to be very popular and we're very encouraged by
the positive response received, so far, to these carefully prepared and
presented volumes. If you wish to learn more about the YBIP (Yizkor Books in
Print) Project, you are welcome to visit
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html

Over the last month or so, a number of new Translation Fund projects have
been set up to enable people to help some of the Yizkor Book projects along
financially. The projects recently added were for the following books:

- Dumbraveni, Moldova (There once was a town - a descriptive monograph of
the town of Dombroven)
- Glinyany, Ukraine (In the Diaspora and in the Homeland)
- Nowy Dwor Mazowiecki, Poland (Memorial book of Nowy-Dwor)

If you would like to know more about these projects or any of the others
that are currently running, you are invited to visit the JewishGen-erosity
page at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23

Finally, I would assume that this report finds many of you preparing for
their trip to the 32nd IAJGS International Conference. Unfortunately, I will
not be there but Jan Meisels Allen has kindly agreed to lead the Yizkor Book
Birds of a Feather meeting and hope as many of you will take part and be
enriched by Jan's wide knowledge in this field. Other than that, I do wish
all of the participants in the conference a very fruitful and rewarding
experience.
