Sander GOLDBERG Naturalization papers NOT MINE #general

Barbara Hershey <barbara.hershey@...>
 

I have a xeroxed copy of a Petition for Naturalization >from 1910 or so (some
conflicting dates) for a Sander GOLDBERG who was living at 111 East 113 St in
NYC at the time, He was born in what looks like Podolsk in the Russian Empire.
I'm not sure specifically what place it is. His wife was Minnie (with a maiden
name I can't quite read) and 5 children, Jennie, Rosie, Isador, Anna and one
more.

If you think this could be of interest to you, I'd be happy to scan or send it.
I have a ggrandfather with that name but not with that family configuration.

ViewMate translation request Final Line of matzeva in current day Slovakia from Hebrew #general

Barbara Hershey <barbara.hershey@...>
 

I have posted a photo of a matzeva on ViewMate,
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM66616

I understand all of the lines except the final line. I'd like your help in
understanding what the last line means. I haven't found it in usual lists of
phrases.

This photo of a matzeva is >from what is now Slovakia, formerly Hungary. It
marks the grave of my third great grandfather. My camera info tells me this is
from Velky Hores. Amazingly, there is a last name included, CZUKOR. Not only
am I interested in a translation of that final line, but also any
interpretations of the significance of that last line or anything else about
the stone.

I read the lines as follows:
Here lies
(I once knew this but don't remember now, but it starts "the man")
Avraham Tzvi
Son of Aaron Czukor
4 Sh'vat 1884, Thursday, 31 January 1884
He was 73 years old
May his soul be bound in the bond of life
???

Researching the Jewish Kehila of Nagymegyer (Velki Meder), 1938 to 1944. #hungary

Shalom,
I am currently researching the history of the Jewish Kehila in
Nagymegyer (Velki Meder), under the Hungarian rule during 1938 to
1944.
I would greatly appreciate any relevant material - Single or
collections of letters, photos, official papers, personal diaries,
references to privately published memories or letters and so on.
I read Hungarian, so no need for translations. I would gladly
translate such documents if their owner so wishes.

Yizkor Book Project, April 2018 #hungary

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I am always impressed and encouraged to see progress being made in our
various translation projects. Some of the progress is small and some
is more significant but all bring these projects closer and closer to
their ultimate aim of completely translating the Yizkor Books and
placing the translations online for the benefit of many.

We are so fortunate to have a number of dedicated people who do all
the work behind the scenes of the Yizkor Book Project. Be it
encouraging funding, being in contact with our professional
translators or seeking out the assistance of volunteer translators to
help advance the projects. Without these wonderful people, I would
have nothing to report and believe me, the activities of last month do
provide me with a great deal to report.

Something important to report, for instance, were a number of new
books have been published last month through the auspices of the
Yizkor Books in Print Project. The books that came out in April were
firstly, for Karelichy, Belarus - "Korelitz: The Life and Destruction
of a Jewish Community" and, secondly, "Pan Kapitan of Jordanow",
dealing with the rescue of Jewish children during the Holocaust period
by Yeshayahu Drucker, AKA "Pan Kapitan". A link leading to the details
of these and the other published books may be found at the end of this
report.

X-Message-Number: 1

Shalom,

I'm happy to announce that our almost year long project is near its
end. The goal was to digitize and transcribe voluminous 1857 Census
from Abauj Torna county.
Thanks to your contributions we were able to collect almost 12000
names, very often with full birth dates, occupations, family relations
and other details.

For more information on what is covered, please go to
http://hsig.absolon.eu and click on "1857 Hungarian Census -
Abauj-Torna". The tracking table shows now 98% progress and we
estimate the rest could be done within next two-three weeks, so
hopefully the whole work will be published on JewishGen Hungary
Database before IAJGS. This all couldn't be achieved without hard work
of transcribers and validators, mainly Eric M. Bloch and Peter G.
Bakos. Thanks guys!

In that project we collected info >from enumeration sheets >from 234
towns and villages and 7 districts of city of Kosice/Kassa. In
addition, we found online and transcribed 6 towns >from Zemplen county,
which will be also uploaded together with Abauj-Torna.

Since the 1857 Census contains lots of valuable information, we
decided to continue with another county, Saros megye. On the page
mentioned above there is already section with progress tracking for
Saros (highlighted yellow).

As the acquisition of the records isn't free, I would like to ask you
to consider a donation to this project here:
https://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat

New and Updated Databases on IGRA's Website #general

Elena Bazes
 

The Israel Genealogy Research Association (IGRA) has just released new
and updated databases on its website. As always, we are most grateful
to all of our volunteers.

Please check the preview for additional details about these databases.

https://www.slideshare.net/igra3/apr-2018-igrarelease

Updated Databases

Montefiore Census Records 1839-1875 60,157 Listings

IGRA is very proud of its participation in the process of digitizing
and indexing the Montefiore Census records. Mathilde Tagger (z'l),
Rose Feldman and Billie Stein spearheaded the efforts which began at
the IGS and concluded at IGRA. They were joined by a group of
volunteers who spent countless hours deciphering (a variety of script
writing is found in the originals), transcribing, translating,
researching (for instance occupations were mentioned that no longer
exist or are now called by a different name) and finalizing the
documents. The results are available on the website of The Montefiore
Endowment searchable in both Hebrew and English.

http://www.montefiorecensuses.org/

In addition, the index can be searched on the IGRA All Israel Database
search engine as well. This allows you to take advantage of our
special soundex giving you spelling variations for each surname
without having to input each variation on your own. The detail page
(available to paid IGRA members) will give you the item number,
locality and notes - and a link taking you directly to that item on
the Montefiore Endowment website. Those who are registered on the IGRA

Shalom,

I am always impressed and encouraged to see progress being made in our
various translation projects. Some of the progress is small and some
is more significant but all bring these projects closer and closer to
their ultimate aim of completely translating the Yizkor Books and
placing the translations online for the benefit of many.

We are so fortunate to have a number of dedicated people who do all
the work behind the scenes of the Yizkor Book Project. Be it
encouraging funding, being in contact with our professional
translators or seeking out the assistance of volunteer translators to
help advance the projects. Without these wonderful people, I would
have nothing to report and believe me, the activities of last month do
provide me with a great deal to report.

Something important to report, for instance, were a number of new
books have been published last month through the auspices of the
Yizkor Books in Print Project. The books that came out in April were
firstly, for Karelichy, Belarus - "Korelitz: The Life and Destruction
of a Jewish Community" and, secondly, "Pan Kapitan of Jordanow",
dealing with the rescue of Jewish children during the Holocaust period
by Yeshayahu Drucker, AKA "Pan Kapitan". A link leading to the details
of these and the other published books may be found at the end of this
report.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried
out in the Yizkor Book Project in April.
