Yizkor Book Project, February 2019 #poland #ciechanow

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

There seems to be some unwritten law that despite its shortness,
February always seems to be one of the busiest times in the Yizkor
Book Project and this last one, didn't disappoint.

To begin with, I am more than very pleased to let you know that we
have just completely translated and placed online, another Yizkor
book. This time it is the "Czyzewo Memorial Book" covering the
Czyzew-Osada, Poland community and considering that it entails 1190
columns of text (around 585 pages), this is definitely no mean feat.
Our grateful thanks go out Jennifer Mohr who, >from the outset, has
coordinated the translation of this book with great energy and
dedication. Although the book is now completely translated, Jen is
now arranging for an index to be prepared for the book which is always
an invaluable additional tool that researchers can be good use of.

Continuing on with the good news, I am pleased to let you know that
the 80th book published by the Yizkor Books in Print Project has
recently hit the shelves. The book, "The Jews of Kishinev" covering
the lost Jewish community of Chisinau, Moldova has become a reality
through the enthusiastic coordination of Yefim Kogan and the wonderful
translations of volunteer, Sheli Fain, and of course, the YBIP team
led by Joel Alpert. Our grateful thanks goes out to all those involved
in the translation and publication of this book and for those
interested in learning more about the other 79 books that have been
published, please see the link to the YBIP project at the end of this
report.

Other good news. The New York Public Library has done wonders over
the years to allow us ready online access to an enormous number of
Yizkor books. It has now gone an extra step further and provided the
public with a very useful guide for viewing the online books and also
has provided useful links to other online sites, including our very
own Yizkor Book Project. In my humble opinion, a worthwhile site to
bookmark: https://libguides.nypl.org/yizkorbooks

As Purim is just around the corner, I would like to wish you dear
readers and your families, a very enjoyable time over this upbeat
holiday and wish you a Happy Purim and/or a Purim Sameach.

And now for the additions and updates are what we've carried out

School in 19th century Odessa ? #ukraine

nf.berline@...
 

Dear Ukrainsig friends

My great grand father Salomon Elie BERLIN was born in Derechin (now
Belarus) on 23 november 1857.

I posted on Viewmate a photograph taken around 1880. The photo shows
my great grand father Salomon Elie BERLIN (top right) together with
three
colleagues . In the hands of one
of his colleagues is a file showing, in cyrillic characters, SDRR.
Would anyone know what these letters stand for ?

I have been told it could be a school in Odessa around 1830. However,
I have not been able to find such a school using Google. I hope that
some member of the SIG might have a hint.


To see the viewmate photo, you may click on the link

Thank you in advance for your assistance and best regards.

ALBERT FELDMANN born 30-1-1894 #hungary

pheilbrunn@...
 

Hi,

My uncle Albert was born and raised in Vienna and fought for Austria-Hungary in WW1. He survived the war. An Austrian researcher informs me that the Military Archives in Vienna hold no record of his service. This it appears is due to the fact that for conscription purposes, he was registered in Kegye, (the birth place of Albert's father) then a town in the Hungarian empire now in Romania. It has been suggested that I contact the Military archive in Budapest.

Has anyone had experience in tracing WW1 military records in Hungary and or could recommend a researcher.

Regards,

Peter

Galician Course begins April 1 #poland

Phyllis Kramer
 

Did you have ancestors >from Galicia? Would you like to understand the
resources for researching them? This two part course is designed for
those relatively new to Galician research, but know the town of
origin. We begin with online town sources, and continue with surname
research via vital records using four major websites: Routes to Roots,
JRI-Poland, Gesher Galicia and JewishGen; advanced students may
continue by researching directly in the Polish archives websites.

We focus on developing a methodology for foreign research,
including: (1) the Family Document containing all the necessary
information about your family branch, (2) the Research Table of where
you've searched, (3) Your To Do list, (4) contact list of who is
researching your surname or shtetl, and (5) a descriptive paragraph
to connect with fellow researchers and professionals. Please note:
this course does not include research in US or UK records; you need
to know the immigrant's name and town >from prior research.

Course Material will include an online, downloadable textbook.
Galicia II (2020) will cover the historical background, the Polish
Archives, over 50 different source websites (census, military,
directories etc), Holocaust, languages, hiring a researcher and more!

This is a personal mentoring program (unique to JewishGen education)
which features an online FORUM where you'll be encouraged to post one
ancestral branch (one surname), set goals for your research, and work
one-on-one with the instructor to research vital records for your
branch, and ask your questions. Our classes have no scheduled times
as our students are international, enabling everyone to read/view/post
at leisure.

It is imperative that you read the full description at
https://www.jewishgen.org/education/description.asp?course=40144, then
please ask any question. Registration is open to 15 students. Just
scroll down to the course at www.jewishgen.org/education
