My ancestor buried there is Rakhil Itskovaskaya. Is Rakhil a form of Rachel?
Her father's name is given as Ovseyevna. Is there a Hebrew

Dear colleagues!
1. This cemetery in Lviv-Lwow-Lemberg is situated at Janivska
(Yanowska) street which is the beginning of the road in the direction
of the city of Janiv (old Polish name Yanuw-Lwowski, now it is called
Ivano-Frankowe, situated 35 km to the W >from Lviv). That is the reason
of the name of the cemetery - it is called due to the name of the
street, the street is called due to the name of the city.
2. I think Rakhil is a (Bible) form of Rachel.

Igor Holyboroda,

Re: Help Translating Polish marriage record #general

Shalom,

I recently posted a Polish record on ViewMate which needs translating.
This is a marriage record registered in 1827, Jozefow, for Szmul
Thorem and Laja Aychel. It can be viewed here.

I'd be very grateful if anyone can help out.

Re: using Tracing the Past #germany

Ruth & Bruce Lynn <lynn33@...>
 

Hi everyone,

In contrast to Jeffrey Knisbacher's disappointment in Tracing
the Past, I've found new information on more than a dozen family
members by using this new database! This new information includes death
dates and emigration data that is not included in the Yad Vashem Shoah
victims database, nor in the German Jewish Roof Card Collection, nor in
the 1939 census online. Of course I also checked the database for many,
many more family members who did not turn out to be listed there, but
I'm thrilled with all of the new information that I did find.

Thanks so much to the creators of the Tracing the Past project!

A relative sent me a pdf file that is a eulogy for a family member. It
is in Hebrew. It is a pdf file which I cannot convert easily into a
jpeg file to upload to viewmate. Would appreciate it if someone would
translate the eulogy into English for me.

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

According to its Yizkor book, "Stryj on earth was destroyed by the
Nazis in 1943, in the year 5703 of the Jewish era." Eleven years after
the extermination of the Jews in this Ukraine town, Jonah Friedler
recounted the terrible and blood-chilling events that began with the
arrival of the Germans, the establishment of the ghetto, and the
hardships and horrors the people suffered not only >from the Nazis, but
especially the Ukrainians who he called "the axe in the hands of the
Gestapo." Friedler's account can best be summed up in his own words:
"Death is a dreadful thing, but sevenfold more dreadful was the way
that led to it."

Subject: More on Jewish soldiers serving in Franz Yosef's army #galicia

Madeleine Isenberg
 

I subscribe to several discussion groups and earlier this month
responded to a query in Gesher Galicia, posted on October 6, 2018,
namely, "Subject: Jewish soldiers serving in Franz Yosef's army."

I responded back referring to a dual language (German/English) book
I own, published in 1989, by Dr. Erwin A. SCHMIDL, with the English
title, "Jews in the Habsburg Armed Forces, 1788-1918."

Since that posting, I was inundated by interested individuals asking
how they could get a copy (either impossible or very expensive); some
wanting to find out if their family member's name was mentioned; and
some sending me histories of their soldier-relative.

To help them, I copied out the list of names in the book and created a
PDF of it. The problem then became, how do I make this available to
people? Since the initial query was >from Gesher Galicia, and thinking
Poland, I decided to post it at the bottom of this page of my only
Polish KehilaLinks site
(https://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/nowy_targ/Nowy_Targ-Other.html).

I also managed to contact the writer himself, and Dr. Erwin A. SCHMIDL
was very gracious in also providing me with the similar index list for
his newer book entitled, "Habsburgs Juedische Soldaten, 1848-1918."
This book, published in 2014, is entirely in German, but Dr. SCHMIDL
is working on an extended English version that is due out sometime
2019-2010. In the meantime, he sent me the similar list of names and
places in the existing German language book. This list (in PDF format)
has also been added at the end of the same webpage,
https://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/nowy_targ/Nowy_Targ-Other.html

Dr. SCHMIDL (erwin.schmidl@gmail.com) added that he would
welcome receipt of soldier-histories >from those who have them.
