Guide for Lodz Cemetery #lodz #poland

nicki <gould156@...>
 

I will be traveling to Lodz in May and I am looking for a
knowledgeable guide for the new Lodz Jewish cemetery.

I am trying to find where my grandparents are buried in the cemetery.
They both died in the Lodz ghetto in 1942. My grandfather is not
listed at the cemetery web site http://www.jewishlodzcemetery.org
There is one woman listed with the same name as my grandmother. There
is no information as to date of birth, death to confirm this is my
grandmother.

I understand the long-standing former caretakers and guides were
released >from their duties not too long ago. I did contact Agnieszka
and Krzystof several ways - directly and through researchers in
Poland. Agnieszka and Krzystof never responded so I can assume they
are no longer researching and guiding.

I know there are many burial cards and burial registers that have not
been indexed, scanned and/or recorded and therefore not on the web
site http://www.jewishlodzcemetery.org. Unfortunately these records
are languishing and deteriorating and all this priceless information
will be lost.

I contacted the Lodz Kehila, Borys Weininger and the Foundation
Monumentum Iudaicum Lodzense. I have not received a reply
to these emails

I'd greatly appreciate any suggestions regarding a knowledgeable
guide. Please contact me privately.

polish archives #poland

Deborah Wiener
 

Regarding the enquiry re Polish archives, it is possible to do it yourself
but it may take more time. You need to know some basic words such as birth
death etc etc otherwise you get lost, but with those you can figure out a
lot. Many of the archives are not indexed so you need to trawl through
boxes of records. Knowing family names is a big advantage as in the old
days the names followed down through the generations. This is not always
picked up by a researcher.

Yizkor Book Project, February 2019 #austria-czech

bounce-3654169-772950@...
 

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.

ViewMate translation request - German #austria-czech

omri@...
 

Dear Group,

I've posted a document in German for which I need a translation. It is on ViewMate at the following address:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM72120

In the image on the right side you can see the name (signature?) of Peter Reinitz with the date and the place Canischa (Nagykanizsa). This is most probably my GGGGF and part of a long and detailed description of a transaction of a house in Hranice. it seems that at the time Peter was living in Bonyhad and his family in Nagykanizsa. Please translate any details relating to Peter and his life circumstances in this page. this will be very much appreciated.
Please respond via the form provided on the ViewMate image page.
Thank you very much.
