Yizkor Book Monthly Report for May 2006 #france

Joyce Field
 

May 2006 has been a very busy one for the Yizkor Book Project. We
have one new online "book" (really, a collection of original essays),
four new books started, seven new entries, and 12 updates. All
yizkor book material is available at the Index page at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html. If you are not
familiar with this site, notice at the top of the page, just under
the JewishGen logo, is a list of sites you can access directly by
clicking on the name--for example, Database, Necrology Index, or
Infofiles. There is a wealth of information directly accessible >from
this one page with just a click. Also note that the yizkor material
is listed under four different categories. New material is flagged
for easy identification.

This month we have begun a new online collection, called "The
Terrible Choice: Some Contemporary Jewish Responses to the
Holocaust," at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/terrible_choice/terrible_choice.html
. Melvyn Conroy, the author, writes: "This collection of brief
essays is an attempt to portray the character and personality of a
number of the prominent Jews of occupied Europe, and the manner in
which they responded to the unique circumstances of the Shoah."
Thus far, we have eight essays online.

New books:

-Biecz, Poland
-Indura, Belarus
-Klobuck, Poland
-Transylvania, Hungary:

Frequently I remind our readers that a number of yizkor books are
being translated by professional translators. The list is at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23.
You can make a needed donation to these books and to JewishGen at
this site. Remember that JewishGen provides all the infrastructure
to make the Yizkor Book Project available to everyone at no cost, but
there is a cost to providing this material online and we hope that
our readers will generously support JewishGen, making their
appreciation known in this way.

At this time i want to thank once again our wonderful "international"
Yizkor Book Project volunteers who so efficiently get the
translations online: Lance Ackerfeld (Israel), Max Heffler (U.S.),
and Osnat Ramaty (Germany). They are a remarkable team. And to all
the people who donate their translations week after week, month after
month, we send our appreciation for their generosity and talent.

Re: Question about Bride Index #general

Joy Rich <joyrichny@...>
 

An online New York City bride index that covers Brooklyn 1871-1910 and 1931-1937,
Bronx 1899-1937, and Queens 1905-1937 is on Steve Morse's website. At
http://www.stevemorse.org. it is listed under "Births, Deaths, and other Vital
Records." The search will take you to the Italian Genealogical Group's and German
Genealogy Group's websites. Steve's search screen offers more fields to search by
than the IGG and GGG sites do.

The index is just for Department of Health records, not City Clerk's records. For
an explanation of the difference between the two sets of records, see the entries
for City Clerk's Office, Marriage License Bureau (All Boroughs) and New York City
Department of Records and Information Services, Municipal Archives at
http://www.jgsny2006.org/research.cfm.

Indexes for New York State aren't online. They're at the New York State
Department of Health (http://www.health.state.ny.us/vital_records/death.htm)
and the National Archives regional facility in Manhattan.

Is there a bride index? For NYC and NYS. the person is about 69 years

Seeking All Information On Jennie & Joseph David Frankel-2519 North Stanly Street-PA #general

sacredsisters3@aol.com <sacredsisters3@...>
 

Hello All

I am seeking any and all information on this family. I am mostly
interested in finding out the wife's maiden name. I am hoping it is
Fajkes/Faikes. I believe she might be related to my Faikes side of the
family. She might have been a sibling. She was born about 1895 most
likely in Poland and died in July of 1966 along with her husband
according to the SSDI.

My great-aunt Rose Faikes/Fajkes came over in 1922 off the ship SS
Lapland. On the manifest it stated she was going to a brother-in-law
Joseph D. Frankel 2519 North Stanley Street, Philadelphia-PA. So I am
assuming that since it was her brother-in-law, then the Jennie had to
be a sibling and her maiden name Fajkes/Faikes.

So, If anyone out there has any information I would greatly appreciate
it. If there are descendants out there I can speak with that would be
even better. I am trying to find out about my Faikes side of the
family. My grandfather is Milton Faikes/Fajkes. His wife was
Ruth(rakoff)Faikes who past in February of 2006. My grandfather is in
his 90's and does not recall much, and there is no one else I can ask.
I do not know how many siblings were in his family, but I know there
were a few. There are two brothers a David & Marco Faikes/Fajkes buried
in Argentina and I am trying to get information on that as well but am
having a hard time finding someone to do the research for me.

Any and All help is Appreciated.

For the past three years I have been searching
for my husband's great-grandmother. Her burial
site is now known to us. With the help of three
"Genners" >from Connecticut, we have completed a
missing link.

A special thank you to Donald Garber and Leo

Re: Death Certificates in New York Archives #general

Joy Rich <joyrichny@...>
 

If a resident of New York City died outside of the city, the town in which the
person died was supposed to notify the New York City Department of Health. The
person's name and date of death would be listed in the death index, but in place
of a certificate number there would be a letter of the alphabet. The key to the
letters indicates if the death occurred in the state of New York (town not named)
another state (state named), or another country (country not named).

Deaths that occurred in the state of New York outside of New York City are listed
in indexes held by the New York State Department of Health
(http://www.health.state.ny.us/vital_records/death.htm) and the National Archives
regional facility in Manhattan.

If a resident of New York City died outside of the city, the town in which the
person died was supposed to notify the New York City Department of Health. The
person's name and date of death would be listed in the death index, but in place
of a certificate number there would be a letter of the alphabet. The key to the
letters indicates if the death occurred in the state of New York (town not named)
another state (state named), or another country (country not named).

Deaths that occurred in the state of New York outside of New York City are listed
in indexes held by the New York State Department of Health
(http://www.health.state.ny.us/vital_records/death.htm) and the National Archives
regional facility in Manhattan.

that's for sure.

All their personal possessions to start a new life in South America, went
down with them--including a Sefer Torah that they had ordered written.
