In sending information to your readers and going over all my records I found
that the LDS records have all the 1881 students as being born in Liverpool.
This is incorrect. They came >from all over the place and can be viewed on
the Census Ref RG11/872. Parish of Milton

The 1891 records are Ref. RG12/646 Parish of Milton
The name Berkowitz will find all residents.

Re: Naming Baby Girl #general

Nick <tulse04-news@...>
 

A baby boy might be named after his deceased father if he died before he was
born.

This occurs in the Talmud or other rabbinic literature and the conclusion is
that the rabbi was an orphan whose father died before he was born.

Yizkor Book Project November 2005 update #lodz #poland

Joyce Field
 

We are again approaching the end of a year, which has been busy and
successful for the Yizkor Book Project, but we are not sitting idly
by. We continually add new translations, thanks to our dedicated
donors and project coordinators and our remarkable volunteer staff.

In November we put online 8 updates and 5 new entries, which are all
accessible >from http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html.
New translations are flagged for a month to make it easy for you to
identify them. If you are looking for a translation, the place to
check is the alphabetical listing at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html.

We received an encouraging response >from last month's appeal for more
translations >from the Pinkas HaKehillot series, and we repeat that
request this month. Each volume covers a specific geographical area:
Germany, Greece, Hungary, Latvia & Estonia, Libya, Lithuania,
Netherlands, Poland (7 volumes), Romania (2 volumes), Slovakia,
Yugoslavia. There is a separate "chapter" for each town. We are
desirous of getting the translated tables of contents for the
following Pinkasim online: Netherlands, Libya, and Germany. Contact
me privately if you have any questions or if you can translate >from
these Hebrew volumes, which are very important as they contain
information on many communities too small to have an entire yizkor
book devoted to them.

New entries:

-Alytus, Lithuania: Lite, volume 1
-Kedainiai, Lithuania: Lite, volume 1
-Krekanava, Lithuania: Yahadut Lita
-Obeliai ("Abel"), Lithuania: Pinkas HaKehillot Lita
-Saukotas, Lithuania: Pinkas HaKehillot Lita

Updates:

-Bedzin, Poland
-Brest, Poland
-Chelm, Poland
-Czestochowa, Poland
-Dabrowa, Poland
-Holocaust in Belarus
-Krynki, Poland
-Novogrudok, Belarus

Please consider making a donation to the yizkor book translation
projects listed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
and include a generous contribution to JewishGen, which provides the
infrastructure to make this project possible. Your contribution will
help pay for the translation of these books, making their information
available to all researchers.

NY Times article about origins of Yiddish - 1996 #ukraine

For those interested, I believe the article Al Rosenfield mentioned
may be the following, which can be found in an anthology of Times
articles called _The Science Times Book on Language and Linguistics_
edited by Nicholas Wade (2000, The Lyons Press).

"Scholars Debate Roots of Yiddish, Migration of Jews." George
Johnson, October 1996.

Important Addition to GerSIG website - Holocaust research by Peter Lande #germany

GerSig@...
 

Holocaust expert Peter Lande has created a new research guide for researching
both victims and survivors. The paper has been added to the GerSIG website
under Holocaust Resources. The direct link is:

http://www.jewishgen.org/GerSIG/majorsources.htm

Peter Lande is a winner of the IAJGS Lifetime Achievement Award.
He is a retired US State Department Foreign Service Officer
and is active at the The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM)
in Washington, D.C.

The first paragraph of Mr. Lande's paper follows:

Major Sources of Information on German/Austrian Holocaust Survivors and
Victims - by Peter Lande
While probably the overwhelming majority of German/Austrian Jewish Holocaust
victims were deported directly >from these countries, many had fled to
neighboring countries in the vain hope that these would prove to be safe havens.
Relatively few perished in their country of origin. Researchers should, therefore,
examine non-German/Austrian sources of information. The following is an
attempt to pull together the major sources of such information, as well as
information on concentration camps, and, finally, survivors.

If more genealogy adherents participated, we would probably get closer to
discovering the answer about where the Jews in Ukraine moved from. Chances
are that we'll find multiple answers to this difficult question.

There are a number of large scale genetic projects underway to move the
learning in this field along. The "Genographic Project" is an effort to map
how humankind populated the earth. It is a five-year research partnership
between National Geographic and IBM with support >from the Waitt Family
Foundation. One way to participate in the project is through
www.familytreedna.com. There are other reputable organizations involved as
well. Participation is not expensive but I recommend you do some research
beforehand.
