Tombstone Inscription--Herman DENN #general

Sheldon Dan <sheldan1955@...>
 

I have found something puzzling about a great-great-uncle's son's tombstone.
These are the details >from Ancestry:
Name: Herman Denn (Chaim ben Sholom)
Born: 1904
Died: September 9, 1941
Cemetery: Waldheim Cemetery, 1400 Des Plaines Ave., Chicago (Kovner Verein,
Gate 4J)
Under "Comments," the entry reads, "Beloved husband and father, brother of
Tillie BIZAR (?)."

Solomon Den, Herman's father, was married three times. He had three children
by his first marriage, Rebecca (Beckie) Den LEIBOWITZ (1878-1944), Lena Den
HORWITZ (1882-1903), and David Melech DEAN (1884-1954). Herman was one son of
Solomon's second marriage. The only other child I can be sure of was Allen
Royal DENN (1909-1985). There does not seem to be anyone named Tillie, nor
does the surname Bizar sound familiar.

I think I would like to ask a favor of someone in the Chicago area. Would they
be willing to go to Waldheim Cemetery and take a picture of the gravestone?
Maybe if I see what it actually says, this may clear up this mystery. Herman's
wife was Dorothy Cohen DENN (1902-1999), and his two children were Robert
Phillip DENN (1927-2006) and Gloria Denn KAMISH (1930-1969).

Kremenets district, Ukraine: Translated Records from Russian Revision Lists #general

Ellen Garshick
 

The Kremenets Shtetl CO-OP/Kremenets District Research Group is pleased
to announce that an updated Revizskie Skazki (Russian Revision List, or
census) translation spreadsheet is available on the KDRG Contributors'
Site (https://sites.google.com/site/kdrgcontributors/ ).

With records completed previously, we now have available translated and
proofed Revision List records for 16,657 Kremenets-district households
(76,462 people) in the towns of Annopol, Belozirka, Berezhets, Goshcha,
Katerburg, Kilikiev, Kremenets, Kunev, Lakhovtsy, Lanovtsy, Mizhirich,
Oleksinets, Ostrog, Pochayev, Podberezhets, Radzivilov, Rokhmanov,
Shumsk, Vishnevets, Vyshgorodok, and Yampol. The years of these records
vary for the towns; they range >from 1816 through 1850.

The proofed records comprise about half of our inventory of translated
records. Still to be proofed are about 8,084 data files including 8,936
households (62,052 people).

Thanks to Kremenets Shtetl CO-OP Co-Coordinator Ron Doctor, who
persevered in this enormous task. And we thank those of you whose
contributions allowed us to acquire and translate this rich source of
information on Kremenets-district ancestors. To continue to support us,
please see the donation information below.

Volunteer Opportunities

Names and associated towns >from the newly proofed records will soon be
added to the Indexed Concordance of Personal Names & Town Names
(https://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/Kremenets/web-pages/database/krem_search_frm.html ),
[MOD. NOTE: shortened URL - https://goo.gl/i36GTh ]
but other tasks remain. We need your help in completing this project - and
some of the tasks don't require the ability to read the Cyrillic alphabet.
The tasks are as follows:

--Format the proofed records for posting to the JRI-Poland site, where
they will be publicly available. This requires manipulating the columns
and rows of an Excel file into JRI-Poland's prescribed format.
--Format the proofed records for posting to Ukraine SIG's Master Name
Index. This also requires manipulating the columns and rows of an Excel
file.
--If you do read the Cyrillic alphabet, we'd welcome your help in
proofing additional Revision List records.

If you can help with any of these, please contact Ron Doctor (rddpdx@... ).

Sander Goldberg Naturalization papers NOT MINE #poland

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.

Yizkor Book Project, April 2018 #warsaw #poland

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.

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

Jewish Cemetery of Frysztak #galicia

Shalom,

I am researching the family of Rabbi Menachem Mendel of Rimanov
(1845-1815), who lived for many years in Frysztak. There is an oral
tradition that he had a daughter, Gittel, who lived in Frysztak and was
buried in an Ohel in the local Jewish cemetery. Does anyone know if
there's any available resources that might corroborate this?

Thank you in advance,
Raphael Thurm

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.

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.

We have added in 11 new entries:
