Yizkor Book Project, March 2019 #austria-czech

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

As it is quite likely that this finds you in the midst of preparations
for the Pesach/Passover holiday, I will try not to take up to much of
your time. I would, however, like to let you know about the highlight
activities of the Yizkor Book Project during March.

During last month I was pleasantly surprised and delighted to receive
donations of complete books that we have now placed online. The books are:

- " My Survival" written by Israel Stern z"l, a survivor of the community
of Mielnice, now Melnytsya-Podilska, Ukraine was kindly presented to the
YB Project by his grandson, David Stern.
- " Frampol in the memory of its descendants" is a book in Russian about
the community of Frampol, Ukraine which is now called Kosohirka. It was
written by Mikhail Freyder and Roman Geller in order to preserve the
memory of their ancestor's community of Frampol and has been gratefully
been made available to our project.

I am always pleased to see the addition of material written in languages
other than English as it enables the exposure of this important material
to an even wider audience. The material we do have in other languages
appears in our Translations Index (link below) under the category "Other
languages" and includes material in Hebrew, Spanish, French, Polish,
Russian and even, Lithuanian.

Further good news is that in March we completed uploading the "Preserving
Our Litvak Heritage" book abut various communities in Lithuania, kindly
presented to us by Joel Alpert. For your information, this book is also
available for purchase under the auspices of our Yizkor Books in Print
Project.

And on the YBIP Project, last month yet another new book hit the shelves
- "Memorial book of the Ritavas Community" about the community of
Rietavas, Lithuania. Once again, the wheels of this project continue to
roll and present us with new books on a regular basis and we have Joel
Alpert and his dedicated and talented team of volunteers to thank for that.

Now, all that is left for me before our list of new and updated projects,
is to wish you dear readers and your families a most enjoyable Pesach/
Passover holiday.

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

Viewmate Request - Help Identify Sali Scheier Family #austria-czech

Joyce Eastman
 

I have posted a photo on Viewmate - VM72630 in an effort to obtain
information on the family of Sali Scheier, the younger sister of my maternal
grandmother. Her parents were Toni/Fani Rufeisen and Aron Scheier. I
believe that Sali was born in Sucha, Poland about 1885 or so. In this
family photo taken in Ostrava in 1939, are Sali Scheier (maiden name), with
her husband Jakob and son. I am trying to find the married surname of Sali,
as well as that of her son.

In addition, I know that Sali was living in Bermuda in the 1950's since my
grandmother, Sidonie Fodor (Scheier) used to visit her there.

Please contact me privately with any information you may have.

searching for Egron, or Ebron, Hungary #hungary

Eric Mack
 

My wife's grandmother, Regina FRANK (n=C3=A9e Schwartz) was born in Egron, =
Hungary, according to her USA naturalization papers. Another document=
says her birthplace was Ebron. I can't find a record of the town und=
er either spelling.

Can anyone suggest an accurate name for this town?

FWIW, her naturalization papers say that her husband, Samuel Frank, was bor=
n in Vydran, which we understand is now part of Medzilaborce, in northeaste=
rn Slovakia. However, family lore is that one or both was >from Nyireg=
yhaza, Hungary.

Research Dedications: Week of April 1, 2019 by Laureen Ribons
Waterman, "In honor of my beloved parents Bernard (Rybstajn) and
Rachel (Sczcygielska) Ribons who were both Holocaust survivors.
Regardless of their fate and the death of their families, they
endured, lived life, and were ever loving parents. Forever grateful
for the life lessons and keeping the Jewish faith alive. Today, April
3, would have been their 64th wedding anniversary."
