City plan or maps of Kovno and Slobodka? #lithuania

adamleofeldman@...
 

Hello fellow researchers,

In the Rosenbaum Bank Passage Books, I found an entry (no 23864)
noting the moment when my great aunt's husband paid for my great
grandmother's passage >from Lithuania to Philadelphia. My great
grandmother's (Chasse Pitun) address is listed as what I read as:
Kowno Sossena Ulica 3. Though it could be Sostena or Sosiena or
perhaps some other variation. See the handwritten entry no. 23864 on
this page to see for yourself:

https://digital.library.temple.edu/digital/collection/p16002coll16/id/6445/rec/22

from Google Maps I see Lithuania has a car dealership chain called
Sostena, but I can find no close cognates for a street in Kaunas or
Vilijampole. I'm also having trouble finding city plans or maps from
the early Lithuanian Republic so I can look in the contemporaneous
city. My ultimate goal is to find where Sossena Ulica 3 might be in
modern Kaunas. Can anyone help? Does anyone have any suggestions? Does
the name Sossena/Sostena/Sosiene mean something? Google Translate
tells me Sosiene resembles a Lithuanian world for thief. If true, what
a name for a street: Gonif gas!?!

Cheers,
Adam Feldman

Anszels and Kirsztejns #poland #warsaw

sandralawson@...
 

I recently made a breakthrough when I found the marriage (in Kolo in 1886) between Icek Anszel and Maryia Kirsztejn. The record states that he came >from Krosnowice and she was >from Dombrowice. Both towns have been given as the homes for various Angels, the name used for the Anszel family in England. She adopted the name Miriam here and whereas there are various spellings for her surname, the name adopted both in England, and in South Africa by family members was Kirsch. Although I have been researching the Anszels for many years, I've been hampered by the lack of town records for the family. Unfortunately Miriam was murdered in 1887, and her younger sister Jane, came to London to marry Isaac. The other siblings were Isidore and Louis (who both emigrated to South Africa), Esther and Anne (who made their homes in London, and for whom I have a fair amount of information), and Bernard, who is believed to have remained in Poland.

Mark Halpern receives IAJGS Lifetime Achievement Award #poland #warsaw

Stanley Diamond
 

On behalf of the Executive Committee and Board of Jewish
Records Indexing - Poland and all JRI-Poland volunteers, it is
with sincere pleasure we extend heartiest congratulations to
our colleague and friend, Mark Halpern on receiving the 2018
Lifetime Achievement Award of the International Association
of Jewish Genealogical Societies.

Mark has been been an integral part of JRI-Poland leadership
for almost twenty years as a member of the JRI-Poland executive
committee and board. He has played in indispensable role as
Coordinator of the AGAD and Bialystok Archives Projects and
the JRI-Poland online order system.

In addition, Mark was president of the JGS of Philadelphia from
2003 to 2007, following which he became editor of Chronicles,
the JGS of Philadelphia journal. In 2009, Mark was Co-Chair of
the IAJGS conference in Philadelphia and Program Chair of the 2013
conference in Boston. He has filled every role with dedication,
wisdom and tireless effort.

It is certainly fitting that Mark was presented with the award in
Warsaw given his decades long leadership and contributions to
the indexing of the Jewish records of Poland as part of the
JRI-Poland team.

In recognizing and honoring Mark's lifetime of achievement, the
IAJGS has selected a most deserving member of the Jewish
genealogical community. We are beyond proud of Mark.

Stanley Diamond,
Executive Director
On behalf of the board of JRI-Poland


Yizkor Book Project, August 2018 #warsaw #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

With the High Holidays just around the corner, this is an apt opportunity
to wish you, dear readers and families, a very sweet, healthy and
particularly happy New Year.

In the meantime, I would like to update you about quite a deal of progress
that was made in the Yizkor Book Project over the last month.

For one, we saw the complete translation of yet another Yizkor book go
online. This time for Dieveniskis, Lithuania which was energetically and
tirelessly coordinated by Adam Cherson and I do salute him for his
dedication in this project and the others he leads. The progress made in
all the translation projects we run is undoubtedly due to the dedication
and time that our volunteer coordinators place into them, and we do owe
them a great deal of thanks for this.

Another addition to the YB Project last month is a pamphlet called
"Leaving Rischard" which is a family drama originating in Brzeziny and
Lodz unraveled by Swedish Television. This pamphlet, written and kindly
donated to us by Mark Ejlenberg and he informed me that the movie will
be aired on September 25th on Swedish Television.

This month, an exciting new addition was added to our library of books
published by our Yizkor Books in Print Project: "An Eternal Light: Brody,
in Memoriam". If you would like to receive more details of where this or
any of the many other books that are now available, please see the link
at the end of this report. Please note that the books we have published
are either those that were completely translated within the YB Project
framework or were donated to us in their entirety. It is clear (at least
to me) that we are only able to publish complete books and those projects
that are still work in progress, will need to wait to we complete them.
So if there is a book you are interested in seeing on your bookshelf and
has yet to be fully translated, we would welcome your financial support
to help us fulfill the task of completing its translation and publishing
it. The JewishGen-erosity page has a list of projects that are need of
such support and there is a link to this list at the end of this report.

Finally and by-the-way, if one of your New Year resolutions is to become
involved in our project in any sort of way, I would be very pleased to
hear >from you.

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


We have added in one new book:

Yizkor Book Project, September 2018 #warsaw #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Without a doubt, September was definitely a record month for the Yizkor
Book Project. An important element behind this notable accomplishment,
is the people who prepare the web pages - Max Heffler and Jason
Hallgarten, who after their normal work day and other life activities
regularly manage to find some spare time to prepare and update a
multitude of pages each month. For their persistence and dedication, we
are truly indebted.

And if we are talking about dedication, I wish to note Lukasz Biedka's
coordination of the Przemysl Yizkor book over many years, which in this
past month bore fruit - the complete translation of this Yizkor book. I
send out my grateful thanks to Lukasz, who with the close collaboration
with professional translator, Jerrold Landau, together brought about
this lofty achievement.

At last count, we had 152 books that have been completely translated
within the Yizkor Book Project or include English books that were
generously donated to our project. Each month, the number in this list
continues to grow and I am certain that coming months will see more and
more of these projects completed. As always, if you are able to
financially support any of our ongoing translation projects to help us
realize our goals, bringing benefit to many, please see the link to our
JewishGen-erosity page at the end of this report.

Last month, we also saw the addition of another book published through
the auspices of the Yizkor Books in Print Project. The book I am
referring to is the "Memorial Book of Radzivilov" which is a translation
of the Yizkor book for the community of Radyvyliv, Ukraine. The talented
people in this project continue to devote time, after their usual life
commitments, to thoughtfully and carefully prepare the hard copy
versions of books that we have completely translated into English and we
do owe them our grateful thanks. For information about the books
available for purchase, please see the link at the end of this report.

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

We have added in one new book:

Warszawa Research Group #Warsaw #Poland Mark Halpern receives IAJGS Lifetime Achievement Award #warsaw #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

On behalf of the Executive Committee and Board of Jewish
Records Indexing - Poland and all JRI-Poland volunteers, it is
with sincere pleasure we extend heartiest congratulations to
our colleague and friend, Mark Halpern on receiving the 2018
Lifetime Achievement Award of the International Association
of Jewish Genealogical Societies.

Mark has been been an integral part of JRI-Poland leadership
for almost twenty years as a member of the JRI-Poland executive
committee and board. He has played in indispensable role as
Coordinator of the AGAD and Bialystok Archives Projects and
the JRI-Poland online order system.

In addition, Mark was president of the JGS of Philadelphia from
2003 to 2007, following which he became editor of Chronicles,
the JGS of Philadelphia journal. In 2009, Mark was Co-Chair of
the IAJGS conference in Philadelphia and Program Chair of the 2013
conference in Boston. He has filled every role with dedication,
wisdom and tireless effort.

It is certainly fitting that Mark was presented with the award in
Warsaw given his decades long leadership and contributions to
the indexing of the Jewish records of Poland as part of the
JRI-Poland team.

In recognizing and honoring Mark's lifetime of achievement, the
IAJGS has selected a most deserving member of the Jewish
genealogical community. We are beyond proud of Mark.

Stanley Diamond,
Executive Director
On behalf of the board of JRI-Poland


Warszawa Research Group #Warsaw #Poland Yizkor Book Project, August 2018 #warsaw #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

With the High Holidays just around the corner, this is an apt opportunity
to wish you, dear readers and families, a very sweet, healthy and
particularly happy New Year.

In the meantime, I would like to update you about quite a deal of progress
that was made in the Yizkor Book Project over the last month.

For one, we saw the complete translation of yet another Yizkor book go
online. This time for Dieveniskis, Lithuania which was energetically and
tirelessly coordinated by Adam Cherson and I do salute him for his
dedication in this project and the others he leads. The progress made in
all the translation projects we run is undoubtedly due to the dedication
and time that our volunteer coordinators place into them, and we do owe
them a great deal of thanks for this.

Another addition to the YB Project last month is a pamphlet called
"Leaving Rischard" which is a family drama originating in Brzeziny and
Lodz unraveled by Swedish Television. This pamphlet, written and kindly
donated to us by Mark Ejlenberg and he informed me that the movie will
be aired on September 25th on Swedish Television.

This month, an exciting new addition was added to our library of books
published by our Yizkor Books in Print Project: "An Eternal Light: Brody,
in Memoriam". If you would like to receive more details of where this or
any of the many other books that are now available, please see the link
at the end of this report. Please note that the books we have published
are either those that were completely translated within the YB Project
framework or were donated to us in their entirety. It is clear (at least
to me) that we are only able to publish complete books and those projects
that are still work in progress, will need to wait to we complete them.
So if there is a book you are interested in seeing on your bookshelf and
has yet to be fully translated, we would welcome your financial support
to help us fulfill the task of completing its translation and publishing
it. The JewishGen-erosity page has a list of projects that are need of
such support and there is a link to this list at the end of this report.

Finally and by-the-way, if one of your New Year resolutions is to become
involved in our project in any sort of way, I would be very pleased to
hear >from you.
