Piatek Surname List On Line #general

Sheila Salo <ssalo@...>
 

Dear researchers of Piatek and vicinity:

A database for the Russian-language vital records of Piatek has now been
completed. It includes births, marriages, and deaths for which index pages
were created by the original clerks. At present, the database indexes 2353
births, marriages, and deaths for the years 1868 through 1899.


A Piatek Surname List, extracted >from these indices, has just been added
to the Jewish Records Indexing - Poland web site. JRI - Poland Surname
Lists are compilations of family names appearing one or more times in the
vital records of the town. Transliterations of all variations in the
spellings, as they were written by the town registrar in the civil
records, have been included in each surname list. As additional indexes
are added for a town (other years or types of records), surnames not
previously in the list will be added.

This feature of JRI - Poland is provided as an aid to researchers who may
not recall initially nor search for all the names in their various family
branches, but whose memories may be sparked by scanning the list.

Already I see names on the list common to families in Zychlin, Kutno,
Bielawy, and other towns in the Piatek vicinity. Be sure to check for your
surnames. You may have had ancestors in Piatek and not yet know it!

To access the surname list, go to the JRI - Poland web site at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI- PL>, click on "Polish State Archives,"
then click on "Status Reports: PSA Projects underway," scroll down to
Leczyca Branch, and click on the town name, "Piatek."

Indexing of the births, marriages and deaths recorded 1842 through 1867
will soon be under way.

Stay tuned to learn when this database and the indexing of the
Polish-language years, soon to be under way, will be added to the JRI -
Poland database.

Grand Opening of The JewishGenMall #general

Susan E. King <susan.king@...>
 

Just in time for the holidays! WHEW!!!

After dedicating nearly a year to construct our newest offering,
JewishGen's persistent team of Mall managers is very pleased to announce
the grand opening of The JewishGen Mall on Monday Dec 4th, 2000.

We believe we have created a user friendly place for your holiday shopping.
Our mall managers have found books, software and videos of genealogical
interest to tempt you. In the new year we will constantly be adding new
products, so be certain to keep looking in.

We invite all of you to come on in and see the huge collection of the
very books, videos (under construction) and software some of you have
been asking about. The URL is:

http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgenmall

To avoid any misunderstandings, it will be helpful to know that the concept
behind launching the JewishGenMall is similar to that of any Museum Shop
you have visited. The intent is simply to generate additional revenue to
continue support of JewishGen projects and services that rely on our
operational budget.

The JewishGenMall will not compete with online "discounters" or other
publishers, or be competitive with the pricing of other e-tailers. We are
presenting another avenue for you to acquire products that will not only
benefit your research, but at the same time provide additional financial
resources for JewishGen.

Over the last few months, you have seen messages >from our Vice President of
Business and Corporate Development indicating that our operational budget
sometimes falls short of our projected needs. You'll also recall that the
operational budget supports all the mailing lists, websites and server
needs that carry the many databases. The JewishGenMall will be an
enjoyable way for you to continue to support JewishGen today and well into
the future..

Today you will find no less than 500 products -- >from books to software to
videos -- that cover almost every area of research. And this is just the
beginning!

In honor of the launch, we are offering at special introductory prices on
some special items and Gift Certificates for the holidays. Make sure you
click on the 'Specials' button today... and look for similar specials each
time you log on to The JewishGen Mall in the future.

There are many exciting new developments on the drawing board for The
JewishGenMall in the future.

Our challenge to you today is simply this. If everyone of the 90,000 unique
visitors to our website, the 45,000 submitters to the JGFF and the 15,000
subscribers to the mailing lists made at least one small purchase every six
months >from The JewishGenMall, you will be making a significant
contribution to helping JewishGen help you in your research!

Help us make it happen! Go now to http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgenmall/.
Please join with us today to celebrate the Grand Opening of The
JewishGenMall and say thanks to the extraordinary volunteer effort of Sandy
and Don Hirschhorn, John Berman and Carol Skydell.

I read your e-mail to the Group with interest. I found the name of an
Ancestor also on Nasz Przeglad and her name was ROZA BERLINER WECHSLER, from
Warsaw, Poland but died in Buenos Aires, in 1937.. I was wondering
whether your surname was BERLINER or just BERLINE. My name was BERLINER and
I have been researching my Family for years.

Diana, I have some BERLINERs in my family tree, although I do not have a lot of
information on that branch presently. David BERLINER (b. 29 SEP 1910, d. JUN
1986) was married to my mother's cousin Sylvia WILLIAMS (b. 1916). I would
guess that they were married in or around Chicago, Illinois, USA. They had two
sons, Jordan and Burton (b. unknown).

This obviously isn't very much to go on, but if Diana or anybody else
recognizes my David BERLINER, please drop me a line!

Debrecen deportation list #hungary

Louis Schonfeld <Lmagyar@...>
 

The Szombathely deportation list has a team leader, a full complement of
volunteers and will begin their work shortly.
The Debrecen project still needs a team leader, and at least two more
volunteers to input the data.
Please come forward. Once Jewsihgen and Yad Vashem have determined that we
are willing and capable of doing the work they will provide us additional
deportation lists. These lists have much genealogical data and their
availability on line will be a boon to all Hungarian Jewish genealogists.
Please help out.

After the previous reminder of the annual voluntary dues, we received about
20 more responses. Nearly 100 of you have come forward to demonstrate in a
tangible and meaningful way that you support what we are doing. In case you
need another reminder please consider this the one you have been waiting
for. We still have not reached the "magic" 500 subscriber goal. At last
count their were 487 subscribers on the H-sig list. It doesn't seem
unreasonable for, at least, another 100 of you to send in $10 per year to
H-sig /POB 34152 / Cleveland, OH 44134. Thank you to those of you who have
responded already.
