Yizkor Book Project, November 2017 #sephardic

Shalom,

To say that great progress was made in the Yizkor Book Project over 2017,
is probably an understatement. To begin with, we are pleased to inform
you that we added in the final pages of two of our projects. The
completion of our Yizkor Book projects is always exciting and it is
heartwarming to see the result of the combined efforts of many good
people, bearing fruit. We now have 141 complete projects online and I
foresee that coming months will see further additions to this steadily
growing number. The projects finished this past month were:

- Kosava, Belarus (Memorial Book of Kosow Poleski), the translation of
which was generously presented to us by Bob Fitterman.
- Pan Kapitan of Jordanow - yet another book compiled and donated to us
by Bill Leibner. I have definitely lost count of the number of books he
has presented and translations he's prepared and we are most thankful for
all his work.

Following my previous monthly report, I was approached by a number of
people interested in supporting some further translations >from entries in
the Yad Vashem Pinkasim (Encyclopedias of the Jewish communities), some of
which will be seen listed below. If you also are interested in a
particular community that is listed in one of these encyclopedias, I will
gladly assist you in seeing the relevant entry translated.

Another significant new addition in November was of the book "We want to
live", tracing the arduous journey of Jewish martyrs across Lithuania,
Latvia, Byelorussia, Poland & Germany. It was kindly presented to us by
author's son, Joshua H. Rassen, and for which we are most grateful.

Further activities this past month, included the setting up of two
Translations Funds for the following books:

- Brzesko, Poland Yizkor book - "Memorial book of Briegel-Brzesko and
vicinity"
- Kaunas (Kovno), Lithuania - " A Palace That Sank...", the Schwabe
Gymnasion Kovno Lithuania Yizkor Book

If you are interested in one of these communities and are able to support
the lofty endeavor of having its Yizkor book translated into English,
you'll find a link to our Translation Fund page listed at the end of this
report. Other than these, there are also around 85 Translation Funds
eagerly waiting your financial support.

The final piece of news on progress comes >from our Yizkor Books in Print
Project, which published no less than three books over the past month:

- Dokshytsy, Belarus - "Dokshitz-Parafianov Memorial (Yizkor) Book"
- Bender, Moldova - "Yizkor Book of Our Birth Place: Bendery"
- Jonava, Lithuania - "Jonava On the Banks of the Vylia"

The YBIP project has published 64 books in the 5 years since its inception
and our hats go off to Joel Alpert and his truly dedicated team for this
remarkable achievement. Joel also has informed us that November was a
record sales month for this project, indicating to me the growing interest

Yizkor Book Project, November 2017 #unitedkingdom

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

To say that great progress was made in the Yizkor Book Project over 2017,
is probably an understatement. To begin with, we are pleased to inform
you that we added in the final pages of two of our projects. The
completion of our Yizkor Book projects is always exciting and it is
heartwarming to see the result of the combined efforts of many good
people, bearing fruit. We now have 141 complete projects online and I
foresee that coming months will see further additions to this steadily
growing number. The projects finished this past month were:

- Kosava, Belarus (Memorial Book of Kosow Poleski), the translation of
which was generously presented to us by Bob Fitterman.
- Pan Kapitan of Jordanow - yet another book compiled and donated to us
by Bill Leibner. I have definitely lost count of the number of books he
has presented and translations he's prepared and we are most thankful for
all his work.

Following my previous monthly report, I was approached by a number of
people interested in supporting some further translations >from entries in
the Yad Vashem Pinkasim (Encyclopedias of the Jewish communities), some of
which will be seen listed below. If you also are interested in a
particular community that is listed in one of these encyclopedias, I will
gladly assist you in seeing the relevant entry translated.

Another significant new addition in November was of the book "We want to
live", tracing the arduous journey of Jewish martyrs across Lithuania,
Latvia, Byelorussia, Poland & Germany. It was kindly presented to us by
author's son, Joshua H. Rassen, and for which we are most grateful.

Further activities this past month, included the setting up of two
Translations Funds for the following books:

- Brzesko, Poland Yizkor book - "Memorial book of Briegel-Brzesko and
vicinity"
- Kaunas (Kovno), Lithuania - " A Palace That Sank...", the Schwabe
Gymnasion Kovno Lithuania Yizkor Book

If you are interested in one of these communities and are able to support
the lofty endeavor of having its Yizkor book translated into English,
you'll find a link to our Translation Fund page listed at the end of this
report. Other than these, there are also around 85 Translation Funds
eagerly waiting your financial support.

The final piece of news on progress comes >from our Yizkor Books in Print
Project, which published no less than three books over the past month:

- Dokshytsy, Belarus - "Dokshitz-Parafianov Memorial (Yizkor) Book"
- Bender, Moldova - "Yizkor Book of Our Birth Place: Bendery"
- Jonava, Lithuania - "Jonava On the Banks of the Vylia"

The YBIP project has published 64 books in the 5 years since its inception
and our hats go off to Joel Alpert and his truly dedicated team for this
remarkable achievement. Joel also has informed us that November was a
record sales month for this project, indicating to me the growing interest
and importance of these books. Details of what is available and where they
may be purchased appears at the end of this report.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried out

Rav. Mordechai of Karlin-mid 19th century #rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

My gguncle R' Chaim Dov KANTOR refers to a relative of his mother who
served in Karlin as "Rava"d" usually considered the senior Jewish
authority of the community. I believe he wrote that this Mordechai
came >from Ruzhin.

Checking the sources as to which Mordechais served in Karlin during
this period my guess is that he was referring to R' Mordechai
ZACKHEIM. Another cousin who is more into geneaology than I doesn't
agree.

I've posted in the that I checked "The Scattered Seeds" and other
sources but haven't found a connection to our family.

Does anyone have other suggestions who the above could be or what was
the connection between the above Chaim Dov KANTOR and Mordecha
ZACKHEIM.

the Yad Vashem Pinkasim (Encyclopedias of the Jewish communities), some of
which will be seen listed below. If you also are interested in a
particular community that is listed in one of these encyclopedias, I will
gladly assist you in seeing the relevant entry translated.

Another significant new addition in November was of the book "We want to
live", tracing the arduous journey of Jewish martyrs across Lithuania,
Latvia, Byelorussia, Poland & Germany. It was kindly presented to us by
author's son, Joshua H. Rassen, and for which we are most grateful.

Further activities this past month, included the setting up of two
Translations Funds for the following books:

- Brzesko, Poland Yizkor book - "Memorial book of Briegel-Brzesko and
vicinity"

the lofty endeavor of having its Yizkor book translated into English,

report. Other than these, there are also around 85 Translation Funds
eagerly waiting your financial support.

The E-L117 Y-DNA Haplogroup #dna

Martin Davis (com)
 

Amos Israel Zezmer wrote: My 2nd cousin's Y-DNA Haplogroup is E-L117. I
have not had much success in discovering any information on this
haplogroup. Perhaps I am not looking in the right place. Family Tree
DNA's Migration Map shows this group pretty much all over Africa....

A current problem for anyone researching YDNA is that the nomenclature
regularly changes and evolves. In that context, the YDNA haplogroup E-L117
(if that has not also changed) has undergone several name changes, and is
still often referred to as 'E1b1b1' or even 'E-3b'. Google those 'E codes'
and all becomes clear, as there are numerous references to the Jewish link
to the haplogroup including
http://e1b1b1-m35.blogspot.co.uk/2011/02/e1b1b1-jewish-haplogroup.html .
In a nutshell, the group's origins had previously been assumed to have
arose in East Africa and the haplogroup was often incorrectly described as
African, leaving a misimpression regarding the origin and complex history
of this haplogroup. According to the International Society of Genetic
Genealogy (ISOGG) and National Geographic's Genographic Project, E1b1b1
may have arisen instead in the Near East or the Middle East, and then
expanded into the Mediterranean with the spread of agriculture. The FTDNA
project for the group is at
https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/e-3b/about/background
and if you go to that link you will see the wide distribution of origins of

Yizkor Book Project, November 2017 #dna

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

To say that great progress was made in the Yizkor Book Project over 2017,
is probably an understatement. To begin with, we are pleased to inform
you that we added in the final pages of two of our projects. The
completion of our Yizkor Book projects is always exciting and it is
heartwarming to see the result of the combined efforts of many good
people, bearing fruit. We now have 141 complete projects online and I
foresee that coming months will see further additions to this steadily
growing number. The projects finished this past month were:

- Kosava, Belarus (Memorial Book of Kosow Poleski), the translation of
which was generously presented to us by Bob Fitterman.
- Pan Kapitan of Jordanow - yet another book compiled and donated to us
by Bill Leibner. I have definitely lost count of the number of books he
has presented and translations he's prepared and we are most thankful for
all his work.

Following my previous monthly report, I was approached by a number of
people interested in supporting some further translations >from entries in
the Yad Vashem Pinkasim (Encyclopedias of the Jewish communities), some of
which will be seen listed below. If you also are interested in a
particular community that is listed in one of these encyclopedias, I will
gladly assist you in seeing the relevant entry translated.

Another significant new addition in November was of the book "We want to
live", tracing the arduous journey of Jewish martyrs across Lithuania,
Latvia, Byelorussia, Poland & Germany. It was kindly presented to us by
author's son, Joshua H. Rassen, and for which we are most grateful.

Further activities this past month, included the setting up of two
Translations Funds for the following books:

- Brzesko, Poland Yizkor book - "Memorial book of Briegel-Brzesko and
vicinity"
- Kaunas (Kovno), Lithuania - " A Palace That Sank...", the Schwabe
Gymnasion Kovno Lithuania Yizkor Book

If you are interested in one of these communities and are able to support
the lofty endeavor of having its Yizkor book translated into English,
you'll find a link to our Translation Fund page listed at the end of this
report. Other than these, there are also around 85 Translation Funds
eagerly waiting your financial support.

The final piece of news on progress comes >from our Yizkor Books in Print
Project, which published no less than three books over the past month:

- Dokshytsy, Belarus - "Dokshitz-Parafianov Memorial (Yizkor) Book"
- Bender, Moldova - "Yizkor Book of Our Birth Place: Bendery"
- Jonava, Lithuania - "Jonava On the Banks of the Vylia"

The YBIP project has published 64 books in the 5 years since its inception
and our hats go off to Joel Alpert and his truly dedicated team for this
remarkable achievement. Joel also has informed us that November was a
record sales month for this project, indicating to me the growing interest

may be purchased appears at the end of this report.

Hello!
I am interested in ordering records >from a few different archives in Poland.
Mainly I am looking for records which don't appear anywhere online,meaning I
want to sent a request for just a surname and obtain all the records of that
town with that surname.

Also I am inerested in early records which are sometimes in the same collection
as non jewish records.

Can anyone explain how to go about this?

Thank you!
