Aufbau Index -- Operating? #germany

I recall that volunteers were indexing all the personal notices in the
AUFBAU. Did this ever become a searchable database on the web?

If not, who keeps the DB, even if incomplete?

Re: Information from Hannover 1837 #germany

Gunther Steinberg <beagun27@...>
 

I suggest that you go to or contact your nearest LDS Family History
Library and request:

Geburten 1828-1838 FHL INTL Film 492822 which is for Births in Hannover
between 1828-38.
It will have an alphabetical index: look for Isaac KAHN.
If found, the microfilm will have the document and you can make a copy on
a microfilm reader.

If there is no FHL handy, write to Salt lake City for a search of that
film and a copy of the document. It may cost you $5 to 20 .

Dear Mark and others,

Do you know if there are plans to put any more Bialystok data, of any kind,
on JRI-Poland or Jewish Gen, or if Bialystok indexing is considered
"complete"?

It's been a great source of info!

Welcome New Members #poland

Many Bialystok and area researchers have joined this forum in the
last week in response to a message sent to researchers whose
surnames and towns are listed in the JewishGen Family Finder (JGFF).

I hope you all have had a chance to read about BIALYGen. The
JewishGen Infofile at
http://www.jewishgen.org/InfoFiles/BialystokRRG.htm explains much
about this group and this discussion forum. Only the name of the
Group is incorrect. We will be called BIALYGen and our official
name is Bialystok Region Jewish Genealogy Group.

Let me bring everyone up-to-date.

This forum is open to anyone wishing to discuss the Jewish
history of the Bialystok area and matters related to the search
for your family history in this region. However, this forum was
initiated as a communication mechanism for a Bialystok regional
research group. This Group has the following objectives: sharing
research and experiences, commemorating our Ancestors and their
lives, and cooperating on projects of value to all researchers.

Two projects have already been initiated and volunteers have
started work on them.

1. An index of names in The Bialystoker Yizkor Book published in
New York in 1982 is being completed. The original work that
indexed 90% of the names in the book was contributed by David
Rosen.

2. A Yiddish language index of names in the Bialystok Photo Album
published in 1951 is being transliterated and entered into an
Excel spreadsheet.

Both of these lists will be placed on the JewishGen Yizkor Book
site and added to the All Poland Database.

We have two volunteers who have agreed to serve as webmasters for
BIALYGen.

Many researchers for towns in the area covered by this group have
been concerned about the lack of genealogical data available.
This is why the group was formed. The success of BIALYGen
depends on the resources brought to bear by its participants.
This is just another way to say we need volunteers.

We need volunteers to coordinate research projects. The number
one research goal of this group is to gain access to Jewish
records at the Grodno, Belarus State Archives. The Belarus SIG
has agreed to work with us to meet this goal. They already have
good contacts in Belarus. However, we cannot start the process
without volunteers to coordinate this work.

We need volunteers to coordinate translation projects. There are
so many documents out there in Hebrew, Yiddish, Russian, and
Polish that could be invaluable sources for our research. Again,
volunteers are needed to coordinate these activities.

There are many towns in the area covered by our group. Only those
with a vested interest in their towns can make sure that our
website and our research represent your town adequately.
Volunteers willing to coordinate activities for their town are
needed.

Anyone wishing to volunteer, please contact me privately.

The photographs and poem readings did not work for me. But those
who have read the poem may wonder what "Cefn Cilsanws" is. In
fact, it's the mountain slope on which the Jewish cemetery is
laid out. It means the cell of Sanws, one of the daughters of
Brychan, the local king. Her sister Tydfil was martyred in about
480CE by Picts, and gave her name to Merthyr (originally
Martyrium in Latin) Tydfil. All the sons and daughters were
regarded as Christian saints, hence the "cell".

Our webmaster, John Berman, has created a wonderful innovation at

written in Welsh by Grahame Davies and translated by the author.
The Welsh and English words appear side by side. However, you
can also hear Grahame read his poem both in Welsh and English and
during the reading photographs of the cemetery appear and change
every 20 seconds.
