"HaShomer HaTzair Members in Galicia, 1919-1920."

The Israel Genealogy Research Association (IGRA) has just released new
and updated databases on its website. There are now over 1 million
records available in our databases. We want to thank the participating
archives and the many volunteers who have prepared these databases.
With each release we provide a variety of records to our collection.

A preview of the databases is available at

https://www.slideshare.net/igra3/igra-release-august-2017

Updated Databases

Voters' List - Knesset Israel, 1936 1,145 listings

This list comes >from the Central Zionist Archives. The people mentioned
here were eligible (considered adults) to vote in the Assembly of
Representatives (of the Jewish community in British controlled Palestine).
The information includes the name of the father and the locality and is in
Hebrew. (No images are available.)

Palestine Marriage/Divorce Certificates 5,006 listings

This addition is part of our ongoing project with the Israel State Archives.
Each certificate provides many details regarding the husband and wife,
their parents and -- in some instances -- the witnesses. The certificates
are primarily in Hebrew, but in some cases the names are in English as
well. It is possible to see the transcription of the information on the
spouse by doing a second search once you have the name >from the
certificate. (Images available.)

New Databases

HaShomer HaTzair Members in Galicia, 1919-1920 657 listings

This information comes >from the Archives at Givat Haviva. It is a

confined over 53,000 Jewish refugees not permitted to enter Palestine,
many of whom were Holocaust survivors, in detention camps on Cyprus.
These weekly lists document babies born to residents of the camps
during the period August 1948-February 1949. The lists record more
than 500 births and include date of birth, sex, mother's name, and camp
number. A link is provided on the detail page to the record on the JDC

Let me take this opportunity to thank everybody who answered my

another eight or ten people wrote to me directly. This is the first

I've posted a vital record in Russian for which I need a (partial) translation.

It is on ViewMate at the following address:

I'm trying to determine whether the Pinkus ROZENBERG in the Akta
(>from 1892, Warsaw) is my 3rd GG (there are many people of that
name in Poland, at that approximate time-frame). I'm hoping to
find any other family names that may be mentioned in the Akta,

translated.

Publication of the English Translation of the Memorial book of Rokiskis, Lithuania #general

Joel Alpert <joel.alpert@...>
 

The Yizkor-Books-In-Print Project of JewishGen is proud to announce the
publication of its 62th title, "Memorial Book of Rokiskis (Rokiskis,
Lithuania), Translation of Yisker-bukh fun Rakishok un umgegnt" in hard
cover.

Original Yizkor Book Edited by: M. Bakalczuk-Felin,
Originally Published in Johannesburg, 1952 (Yiddish 626 pages)
Translation Project Coordinators: Tim Baker assisted by David Sandler
Additional New Material: Phil and Aldona Shapiro
Hard Cover, 11" by 8.5", 866 pages with all illustrations and an appendix
of new material.
List Price: $72.95 Available on Amazon for around $53

Translation of the Memorial (Yizkor) Book of the town of Rokiskis,
Lithuania, originally written in 1952 in Yiddish in Johannesburg by the
former residents and survivors of the town.

Jews began settling in Rokiskis in the late 17th century. During the 19th
century, the town's importance as a regional commercial center increased
with the completion of a railway line that connected it to the Baltic ports
of Riga and Libau / Liepaja and to the interior of the Russian Empire. By
1897, the Jewish population had grown to 2,067, 75% of the town's
population. There was a strong Chasidic presence in the Rokiskis area,
which was unique to Lithuania.

Prior to the Holocaust, about 3,500 Jews lived in Rokiskis. By the end of
August 1941 nearly all were murdered. In 1952, Jews >from the area who had
emigrated to South Africa before the war published a collection of
Yiddish-language articles and related images under the title Yisker-bukh
fun Rakishok un umgegnt (Memorial Book for Rokiskis and Environs).
Countless hours of volunteer effort have been devoted to translating that
work into English and recently to gathering additional materials that
were not available when the original book was published. Together, these
translations, images, and new material provide English-speaking readers a
composite picture of the history, culture, institutions, and daily lives
of the Jews of the Rokiskis area and will be a lasting memorial to them.

Rokiskis, Lithuania is located at 55 58 North Latitude and 25 35 East
Longitude

Researchers and descendants of this and nearby towns will want to have
this book.
