Renee Steinig <rsteinig@...>
 

Two mavens have pointed out an error in my post yesterday, referring to
"Bayside (aka Mokom Sholom) Cemetery" in Ozone Park, Queens, New York.

Bayside and Mokom Sholom are two separate, though adjacent cemeteries, with
different addresses, ownership, and records.

Yizkor Book Project November 2005 update #ukraine

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.

Re: Where are our Ukrainian ancestors previously from? #ukraine

Hilary Henkin <hilary@...>
 

Dear Roy,
As for the history of Yiddish, I read an excellent book on the
history of Yiddish (>from the earliest days to the last few years)
from my synagogue library, but I don't offhand recall the name. I
can check next time I go.

However, I did find a website which offers a somewhat brief history
of the language: <http://www.jewish-languages.org/yiddish.html> This
website is worth checking out - there are several links to related
topics at the bottom of the page.

I have no commercial interest in this website.

KOENIGSBUCH in Michalovce,Slovakia #galicia

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Genners and Siggers,
I reported in the past that I located at the Auschwitz
Museum website a certain Hermann KOENIGSBUCH (1912-142) >from Michalovce.
I had no idea that the KOENIGSBUCHs who hail from
Brzesko, Galicia had an extension in Slovakia. The
Michalovce Yizkor book does mention a KENIGSBUCH
family(father,mother+3 children without given names).
Today I was informed by the Rabbi of KOSICE
that in Michalovce there is a grave of Chayah
Koenigsbuch, daughter of Isser and wife of Joseph Koenigsbuch who died in
Purim 1934.
Since it is winter there at the moment it is difficult to get a photo of the
tombstone and try to get more details.
If Chaya bat Isser >from Michalovce rings a bell I'll be glad to hear >from you.
Regards >from Jerusalem,
Jacob Rosen
