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.

Translation of Khotin Yizkor Book #bessarabia

Judi Wagner
 

We are spearheading the translation project for the city of Khotin, Ukraine, the home of our
grandfather, Charles (Kalman) WEINSTEIN. Please consider donating to this project to bring the
words of the Khotin community to our children and grandchildren. This book was originally written
in Yiddish and Hebrew, is over 300 pages, and will be translated into English.

A page has been set up on JewishGen in the Yizkor Book Translation section for Khotin. On the
website main page, the donate button is in the upper right, and also on the right is the Active
JewishGen Projects, the last one on the list is Yizkor Book Translations, and scroll down until
you find Khotin.

Khotin is a city in Chernivtsi Oblast of western Ukraine. It is south-west of Kamianets-Podilskyi.
Khotin, is first chronicled in 1001, and is located on the right (southwestern) bank of the Dniester
River, and is part of the historical region of Bessarabia. An important architectural landmark
within the city is the Khotin Fortress, constructed in he 13-15th centuries. During some of it's
history, the city was part of the principality of Moldavia.

Jewish merchants traveling >from Constantinople to Lvov in the 15th and 16th centuries used to pass
through Khotin, then an important customs station on the Polish-Moldavian border on the commercial
route between Turkey and Poland. Jewish merchants >from Poland used to visit Khotin for the fairs held
there, evidence which dates >from 1541. The residence of Jews in Khotin is first mentioned in
documents in 1741. There were 340 Jewish families in 1808. After this time the community
grew as a result of the large Jewish immigration into the region. In 1897 the community totaled
9227 which was over 50% of the population. A Jewish government school was established in
1847, and a private school for girls was opened in 1857. In the first half of the 19th century, Isaiah
Schorr, one of the most important rabbis in Bessarabia, officiated in Khotin. Later, Grand Rabbi
Israel Twersky served the community of Khotin.

Our grateful thanks go out Jennifer Mohr who, >from the outset, has

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

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

holiday and wish you a Happy Purim and/or a Purim Sameach.

MyHeritage Announces New Technology at RootsTech: "Theory of Family Relativity" and AutoClusters #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

This week is RootsTech in Salt Lake City, Utah. Unfortunately I was not able
to attend-yet major announcements are made at each RootsTech conference. The
following about MyHeritage's new features are gleaned their blog
announcements.

The MyHeritage new technology, Theory of Family Relativity takes family
trees >from both MyHeritage and the World Family Tree on Geni, and the
single family tree of FamilySearch (under license to MyHeritage) 10 billion
historical records, other databases and DNA tests on their site to help
explain DNA connections. Their Theory of Family Relativity is based on a big
data graph connecting billions of data points >from the thousands of
databases on MyHeritage. The connections between people and records are
established by MyHeritage's matching technologies. This new technology
constructs the most plausible theories explaining how pairs of people linked
by a DNA Match on MyHeritage are related, using family trees and historical
records.

To use this new technology one must have a DNA test on MyHeritage. The
Theory of Family RelativityT feature is included for free with subscriptions
on MyHeritage. Individuals who upload their raw DNA data >from other testing
services to MyHeritage who do not have a subscription can pay a one-time fee
of $29 per DNA kit to unlock the Theory of Family RelativityT and the full
range of advanced DNA features offered by MyHeritage.

To read the press release see: https://tinyurl.com/y5cut28b
Original url:
https://blog.myheritage.com/2019/02/introducing-the-theory-of-family-relativity-a-genealogy-game-changer/

A second new technology by MyHeritage is "AutoClusters" . It groups together
DNA Matches that likely descend >from common ancestors in a visual chart.
AutoClusters organizes your MyHeritage DNA Matches into shared match
clusters that likely descended >from common ancestors. By reviewing family
trees of clustered matches, users can piece together the entire branch.
Clusters are color-coded for convenience and are presented in a visual
chart, as well as in list format. Each of the colored cells in a cluster
represents an intersection between two of your matches, meaning that both
individuals match each other (in addition to matching you).

To read more about AutoClusters see the MyHeritage blog at:
https://blog.myheritage.com/2019/02/introducing-autoclusters-for-dna-matches

On Friday at 1:30PM Mountain Time MyHeritage will have a RootsTech live
stream on Getting The Most out of Billions of Records on MyHeritage (Super
Search) where their new technology will probably be discussed. The live
stream is free and may be accessed at: https://www.rootstech.org/ Click on
the arrow in the center of the page you will be prompted to fill in your
name, email address and zipcode and then just watch.

I have no affiliation with MyHeritage and am posting this solely for the
information of the reader.

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.

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

report.

Ooops I forgot to include the link for the video

The link is: https://mamaligablues.vhx.tv/

Mamaliga Blues in English is a documentary about a Jewish family which
goes on a journey >from Brazil to Moldova in search of distant relatives
and a lost grave. The trip takes them on an exploration of Eastern
Europe Jewish history and the Holocaust.

It runs 54 minutes. It is available for rental online for only a few
weeks. According to the producer, Cassio Tolpolar, many people wanted
to watch the film but were not able to go to any public screenings or
purchase its institutional DVD.

I have no affiliation with the film and am sharing the information
solely for the information of the reader. I have not yet viewed
the video.
