Do you have burial data and photos of the tombstones of an entire
cemetery lying around which you can't submit to JewishGen's Online
Worldwide Burial Registry (JOWBR) because you can't translate the
inscriptions? Never fear, help is near.

Neil Rosenstein has organized a superb team of translators ready and
eager to translate/transliterate the inscriptions on the tombstones
which meet the criteria of JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial
Registry (JOWBR). The team can work with digital photos according
to the following criteria. You must have photos of all the stones in
a small cemetery, all the stones in an individual landsmanschaft
plot, or all the stones in specific sections of extremely large
cemeteries. We regret that we cannot accept individual family burial
data. To repeat, we can only accept data >from an entire cemetery or
an entire landsmanschaft or otherwise specific plot in a large
cemetery. Obviously, if the inscriptions are not legible, the team
cannot translate them.

Please send the jpeg images on a CD-ROM disk to Neil Rosenstein,
clearly indicating the name and location of the cemetery.
Simultaneously, send two copies of a signed donor agreement to
Harriet Brown so that she can enter your submission in our tracking
system. When Neil's group completes its translation and enters the
data on our Excel template, he will submit the completed spreadsheet
to Ernie Fine,Technical Coordinator for JOWBR, and notify Harriet
Brown, Administrative Coordinator for JOWBR. If you have any
questions now about this procedure, please contact Harriet Brown at
hnbrown@gdinet.com or me at jfield@jewishgen.org.

All the instructions and agreements are at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/cemetery/. Email and postal
addresses of JOWBR staff are also available at the site.

The team is waiting for your data!

Re: Sara or Selma #general

laurphil@...
 

My paternal grandmother's first name was Selma. She was born in Smyrna
(Izmir, Turkey) in 1904. Her Hebrew first name was Simha and not Sara.

I think that this first name was beard in Turkey and I heard that it was
beard too in Russia but I am not sure.

I agree with Michael Bernett : it's not a Jewish first name.

Sincerely,

I have a little problem. On every record about this person there's the name
Sara, but her sister who's still alive says that she only heard Selma and
not Sara. How can that be? Both of them are jewish names.
Thank you,

Alexis Feldman <alexis_feldman@...>
 

I'm currently searching for any information or genealogical data on the
surname GELZER, originally >from Odessa, Warsaw, and other surrounding towns
in Poland & Ukraine (Russia).

Having searched all the Jewish genealogical
sites, I have found very little about the name.

The following are known
GELZERS who came to the US and lived in New York and Florida:
Alexander GELZER (b- 1890 odessa) married Elizabeth GERICHTER, son of Mendel
GELZER (b 1867 dubnow) and Chana FRIEDMAN. Some of the many siblings of
Alexander to immigrate to the US are: Srul, Jolel, Nechawke, and David
GELZER. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
