Yizkor Book Project, November 2017 #poland

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 #lithuania

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 YBIP project has published 64 books in the 5 years since its inception

record sales month for this project, indicating to me the growing interest

What forced people in 1880 Poland/Russia to register births? #general

rcbernstein
 

Hi everyone,

I'd like to try to understand what the forces involved were regarding
registering births in Biala Podlaska and the surrounding area (Miedzericz,
Lomazy, Losice, Lukow, Siedlce, etc) around the years 1870 - 1890. I
assume that there were repercussions for boys that there weren't for girls
due to army service later in life.

What were the penalties for non-registration or late registration? Were
there penalties for false information?

I'd appreciate any and all detailed information.

TIA,
Ruvane Bernstein


The Montefiore Endowment has updated its website and includes new materials #poland

Rose Feldman <rosef@...>
 

Newly released material shows tens of thousands of Jews living in
Israel long before the Balfour Declaration

Newly digitised and translated archives reveal that many tens of
thousands of Jews lived in the land that was eventually to become the
modern state of Israel as far back as the 1830s, nearly a century
before the Balfour Declaration.

For the first time ever, documentary evidence has become readily
available in English of a substantial Jewish presence in the Holy
Land. Censuses taken by the Victorian philanthropist, Sir Moses
Montefiore, contain personal and family particulars, occupations and
countries of origin of 25,535 Jewish families, together with details
of 968 of their agricultural, religious, educational and welfare
institutions.

Taken together with other Montefiore papers, the Censuses provide
eloquent testimony of the tenacity with which Jews clung to this
neglected, poverty-stricken province of the Ottoman Empire.
Accompanying the Censuses are other manuscripts showing how they had
to contend with the hostility of their immediate neighbours, the
depredations of marauding Bedouin tribes, devastating earthquakes,
repeated outbreaks of plague and the attention of aggressive Christian
missionaries. Yet, despite all hardship, they steadily increased in
number.

The manuscripts, which constitute a unique sociological and
genealogical record of Jewish life in the area during the 19th century
are written in a variety of scripts. Many pages are difficult to read
and, lacking an index, the tracing of individuals can be frustrating -
especially as the names and the spellings of families, towns and even
countries often changed over the period.

The Montefiore Endowment, which owns the manuscripts, has just
announced that after nine years of work, complete scans of the
Censuses themselves with full English translations, are now available
on its website together with sophisticated search-engines in English
and in Hebrew to facilitate further use.

Lucien Gubbay, Chairman of the Montefiore Endowment, said "The
Endowment takes great pride in having made these valuable manuscripts
easily accessible to English-speaking and Hebrew-speaking scholars and
members of the public for the first time. The many volunteers involved
in nine years of painstaking work are to be congratulated for a
significant research achievement."

JRI Poland #Poland Yizkor Book Project, November 2017 #poland

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.

The Montefiore Endowment has updated its website and includes new materials #general

Rose Feldman <rosef@...>
 

Newly released material shows tens of thousands of Jews living in
Israel long before the Balfour Declaration

Newly digitised and translated archives reveal that many tens of
thousands of Jews lived in the land that was eventually to become the
modern state of Israel as far back as the 1830s, nearly a century
before the Balfour Declaration.

For the first time ever, documentary evidence has become readily
available in English of a substantial Jewish presence in the Holy
Land. Censuses taken by the Victorian philanthropist, Sir Moses
Montefiore, contain personal and family particulars, occupations and
countries of origin of 25,535 Jewish families, together with details
of 968 of their agricultural, religious, educational and welfare
institutions.

Taken together with other Montefiore papers, the Censuses provide
eloquent testimony of the tenacity with which Jews clung to this
neglected, poverty-stricken province of the Ottoman Empire.
Accompanying the Censuses are other manuscripts showing how they had
to contend with the hostility of their immediate neighbours, the
depredations of marauding Bedouin tribes, devastating earthquakes,
repeated outbreaks of plague and the attention of aggressive Christian
missionaries. Yet, despite all hardship, they steadily increased in
number.

The manuscripts, which constitute a unique sociological and
genealogical record of Jewish life in the area during the 19th century
are written in a variety of scripts. Many pages are difficult to read
and, lacking an index, the tracing of individuals can be frustrating -
especially as the names and the spellings of families, towns and even
countries often changed over the period.

The Montefiore Endowment, which owns the manuscripts, has just
announced that after nine years of work, complete scans of the
Censuses themselves with full English translations, are now available
on its website together with sophisticated search-engines in English
and in Hebrew to facilitate further use.

Lucien Gubbay, Chairman of the Montefiore Endowment, said "The
Endowment takes great pride in having made these valuable manuscripts
easily accessible to English-speaking and Hebrew-speaking scholars and
members of the public for the first time. The many volunteers involved
in nine years of painstaking work are to be congratulated for a
significant research achievement."
