Yizkor Book Project, March 2019 #poland #ciechanow

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

Yizkor Book Project, March 2019 #ukraine

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:

We have added in 6 new entries:

request for help to obtain death certificate of non-relative from NYC 1920 #general

Reuven Dressler
 

I am looking for somebody to help guide me as to how to get a death
certificate for a woman that passed away in 1920 in NYC. We have no
proven family connection (at this point), even though I suspect that
there is one. We therefore cannot apply as a next-of-kin/relative.

Is there anyway to get such a death certificate copy under such
conditions? Freedom of Information Act maybe?

Thanks

Marriage and Death Records" is available at
https://www.jewishgen.org/InfoFiles/nycv-lds.html
It includes a link to the NYC site for ordering copies of records. The
form on that site for ordering death records >from before 1949 does not
include any questions about relationship to the deceased person, and
most records can be delivered by email as a PDF file.
