(Galicia-Poland) Jewish Cemeteries Being Cleaned by Southern Baptist Minister #poland

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Steven Reece is an ordained Southern Baptist Minister >from Texas who cleans
Jewish cemeteries and erects memorial plaques in Poland and Ukraine-the
former Europe Jewish heartland. He says as a Christian, it is his way of
honoring Holocaust victims while supporting the surviving Jewish
communities. He says he is troubled by the failure of European Christians
who mainly stood by passively as the Nazis persecuted and killed their
Jewish neighbors. He sees the Jewish cemetery as a way to bring Jew an
Christian together and work together. His organization, the Matzevah
Foundation, has carried out 28 projects in 14 different countries with
1,000 volunteers including Americans, Israelis and Poles.

He has cleaned cemeteries in Poland including in Oswiecim. He works with
diaspora Jews to work in Polish towns to continue the maintenance work. His
foundation brings volunteers to Europe >from the Brentwood Baptist Church in
Tennessee and partners them with Jewish descendants to care for their
ancestral cemeteries. He wants to help maintain the 1,000 Jewish cemeteries
across Poland

He is now working in the Ukraine and the recent work in Rohatyn was
organized by Marla Raucher Osborn, who serves on the Gesher Galicia Advisory
Board, and the Jewish Rohatyn Heritage.

I'm hoping someone can help me by translating this marriage record. The record is
for Lejbka KAWKIEWICZ and Leja LEWTOW. I don't know if this is the third marriage
for Lejbka. If it is it will contradict all the information I have gathered for
him to date. Or it could be another brother that I didn't know about. I need to
know location, date, names of parents and if possible occupations. Any help you
can give me will be greatly appreciated.
I've posted a vital record in Russian which I need a translation. It is on ViewMate

Rabbi Jacob Avraham DOLGINAS #rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

We have a picture of my late father-in-law, Rabbi Moshe YERUSHALMY,
with a "Hebrew class", in which , we presume he was the teacher and an
older gentleman. On the back of the pix there is in handwriting
something that looks like DOLGINOS. The venue and date are unknown
but it was probably taken somewhere between 1930-1940.

Researching the name DOLGINOS I did come across the name of Rabbi
Jacob Avraham D. who had been in NYC during the early part of the 20th
cent. I don't know if there is any connection between this Rabbi and
Rabbi DOLGIN who was a Rabbi for many years in Los Angeles before
immigrating to Jerusalem.

If anyone can send me a biography of the above Rabbi Jacob DOLGINOS so
we can try to identify the picture and possibly send copies to
descendants of the students in the class.

DNA Company Updates: Ancestry and MyHeritage #dna

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Both Ancestry and MyHeritage have announced some changes with their DNA
programs.

Ancestry
Ancestry recently updated their ethnicity estimates. They did this because
they have more people in their own research studies and they say they are
better able to tell regions apart because they have 16,000 reference samples
assigned to 380 possible regions rather than the previous 3,000 reference
samples >from 353 regions in the world. The advancements in DNA science
allowed them to divide the world into more regions which permitted more
"nuanced" estimates. The change only affects percentages not matches. Just
about everyone tested will some changes.

[or https://tinyurl.com/y9ul5krr --Mod.]

MyHeritage
MyHeritage announced they now support the upload of 23andMe v5 and Living
DNA data files, in addition to supporting data uploads >from all major DNA
testing services, including Ancestry, 23andMe (prior to V5) and Family Tree
DNA (Family Finder). Since 2016, MyHeritage has allowed users who have
already tested their DNA to upload their DNA data >from Ancestry, 23andMe and
Family Tree DNA. They receive DNA Matches and ethnicity estimates on
MyHeritage for free. For users that upload now, they offer full access to
DNA Matching, Ethnicity Estimates, and their chromosome browser for free.
You can upload your results by going to:
https://www.myheritage.com/dna/upload . As of December 1, 2018, MyHeritage's
policy regarding DNA uploads will change: DNA Matching will remain free for
uploaded DNA data, but unlocking additional DNA features (for example,
ethnicity estimate, chromosome browser, and some others) will require an
extra payment for DNA files uploaded after this date. MyHeritage will
announce more closer to the December 1 date.

More on Sokolow Maloposki vital records #galicia

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

Following Gesher Galicia's announcement that we would shortly be
uploading to the All Galicia Database indexes >from the Sokolow
Malopolski death records for 1932-1941, Eden Joachim has mentioned a
source where there is possible data >from the town >from the 20th century.
Gesher Galicia seeks to make available on our online database - for all
interested researchers and free of charge - all relevant vital records >from
the former Galicia that are not otherwise publicly available.

As Dr Wojciech Wozniak, director of the Polish State Archives, observed
when opening the recent AGAD-Gesher Galicia Symposium in Warsaw,
"information wants to be free."

Just to clarify a statement in Eden Joachim's post, JRI-Poland's
searchable records for Sokolow Malopolski on their database go no
further than 1912. The marriage banns of 1895-1934 are not searchable
there beyond 1909.

Gesher Galicia wishes all our supporters a very good New Year.

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page: Yom Kippur and the Days of Awe #general

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

Rosh Hashanah is upon us, so what better time to bring you "The First Day of Rosh
Hashanah, and the Observance of Tashlich" >from the Yizkor book of Podhajce
(Pidhaytsi) in the Ukraine. The holiday was seen as both "a festival and a Day of
Judgment simultaneously" and in the packed synagogue "no joyous smile was seen on
the face of the worshipers, who conducted themselves with more seriousness and
somberness than usual." Later, the crowds of worshippers went to the river to
"cast to the depths of the sea all of their sins" and, even when they were done,
"remained standing at the banks of the river without moving. The last rays of
sunlight lit up their faces."

Slovak Archives Records Project #hungary

Peter Absolon
 

Dear all readers,

first of all, Shana Tova - I wish you all the best, healthy and
prosperous New Year!

As a New Year's gift, I'd like to give you transcribed 1857 Census
from Saros County. Well, not exactly today, but hopefully in near
future.:-) In fact, 5800+ records have been transcribed >from the
acquired images >from Saros county and they are pending quality checks
prior to their inclusion in JewishGen databases.

While I'm still looking for skilled validators to check through my
transcriptions (and I'm already grateful for work that Eric M. Bloch
and Peter G. Bakos are doing), I have recently found gentleman who has
all required skills (German, Hungarian, Slovak, local geography,
Kurrentschrift, old German handwriting etc.), who is willing to take
his part in the difficult job going through sheets record by record
and correcting the possible errors I could made.

I want to express my gratitude to all of you who contributed to this
project and allowed JewishGen to acquire new records that haven't been
filmed or published yet. This project can run thanks to your
donations. only

Even though the 1857 Saros census has been finished (and I even
haven't mentioned Zemplen towns that are included, too - see
http://hsig.absolon.eu for more info) there are still hundreds and
hundreds of civil BMD records that would like to be scanned and made
available to you.

Please take the upcoming days of repentance as opportunity to do the
mitzvah and consider contributing to this project. I'd also love to
hear >from you what towns >from Eastern Slovakia (civil BMDs 1895-1906)
you'd like to see included.

Thank you all for reading this long e-mail.

Shabbat Shalom,

Peter Absolon

1857 Census description as clicking on the title leads to "page not

FISCHER - STERN #hungary

I am searching for information on a great-great aunt, born Janka

grandmother always said her family was >from Hungary, possibly
Budapest. However, I have information that her father, Eleazar FISCHER

Janka married Jonas STERN, and the only information I have on him is
that he was >from Csernadurnajci, Poland, a place I cannot locate

In any event, Janka and Jonas had a son, Bela Somogyi STERN, who was
born 17 Sep 1912 in Budapest and died 14 Nov 2002 in Flushing, Queens,
