Dear Ellen:

Ship manifests for Ellis Island are only available >from 1892 to 1957
Before then, ships arriving in New York arrived at Castle Garden (1855 to
1890).

Check out the website of Steven Morse at www.StevenMorse.org. He does not
have the data on his website. His website is basically a search engine that
searches all the websites where the information might be listed. On this
website, you can search for arrivals into a variety of ports around the
country.

If that does not work, do a search on www.Ancestry.com (available for free
at an LDS Family History Library or at your local library) for the name of
the ship, the port of departure, and the date of arrival. You can then go
through the entire microfilm, page by page, to see if you can locate your
ancestor. I hope this is helpful.

Bessarabia SIG, Update for October 2016 #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Hi everybody,

Please see the What's New Section for the details of what we did new in the month of October.

1) We have completed indexing and sent to JOWBR information on TWO more Jewish cemeteries in
Bessarabia/Moldova:

- Jewish Cemetery of Bricevo. 128 records with 128 photographs are sent to JewishGen/JOWBR. Also
there are 255 photos of unknown graves available at the Bessarabia SIG website and >from Bricheva
Cemetery report.
There is a section at the cemetery, which was not accessable, and it most likely has about 150-300
graves. We will need to do a restoration and cleaning of this cemetery in order to get to them. Also
if you did not donate yet for that cemetery, please do so. It will help to cover all the costs.


- Cemetery of Straseni. According to the information I got at the end of 1990s that cemetery had
about 150 Jewish graves, but in September of this year only 12 graves were found. It is possible that
there is a cemetery on another location, but very unlikely. It is not that you can find a Jewish cemetery
in the phone town book. So far 12 Jewish graves were found at the town cemetery. If anyone has
knowledge about this or any other cemetery were Jews are buried, pleace call me.

2) An update was made for the Revision List records which are going to be uploaded to JewishGen
in December of 2016. Two large sets were completed, for Kishinev and for Telneshty. You can get the
complete table of these records for a donation of $100 to Bessarabia SIG General fund. If you will
find records of your ancestors, we will also send you the copies of the original Revisions.

3) A chapter of Kishinev Yizkor Book (Jews of Kishinev) was translated: "Hasidism and Enlightment"
and now available at JewishGen / Yizkor books. Thanks a lot to Sheli Fain for her work.

Thanks also to all volunteers who worked on thanslating Revision Records, grave inscriptions, and more.

Please let us know if you have any questions, ideas of how to make our Bessarabia SIG and the
website better.

All the best,

**New Records**: The List of Registered Voters for New York City for 1924 #general

Asparagirl <asparagirl@...>
 

And now for some election-related news that, for once, everyone will like!

Reclaim The Records has acquired and posted the List of Registered
Voters for New York City for 1924! It's hundreds of thousands of
names, perhaps over a million -- we don't know the exact number yet.

This list was first available in paper format ninety-two years ago,
published in a city government newsletter, then stored in shrinkwrap
and locked away in the New York City Board of Elections warehouse for
years. But now thanks to Reclaim The Records, the New York City
Municipal Archives, and our first-ever joint project with an
individual genealogist -- JewishGen's very own VP Phyllis Kramer! --
they're finally online! (Phyllis really deserves the credit for this
one, as it was her idea to try to get voter materials in the first
place.)

This list is broken up by the five boroughs (counties), then by
Assembly District (A.D.) within the borough:

- Bronx - https://archive.org/details/votersList1924NYCBronx
- Brooklyn - https://archive.org/details/votersList1924NYCBrooklyn
- Manhattan - https://archive.org/details/votersList1924NYCManhattan
- Queens - https://archive.org/details/votersList1924NYCQueens
- Staten Island - https://archive.org/details/votersList1924NYCStatenIsland

The list was originally typeset instead of handwritten, so it's very
easy to read, and the new digital photographs are excellent. And all
the images were OCR'ed -- meaning automatic image-to-text -- by the
Internet Archive when we uploaded them. That means you can do a
(slightly buggy) **Text Search** of the records right away, right now,
even though there hasn't been a formal indexing project yet.

Most importantly, if you see a relative's name on this list, you can
request a copy of their original voter registration file! Those
one-page original voter registration files have tons of genealogical
goodies in them. For naturalized citizens, that also means you'll
finally find out in what exact court and on what exact date they were
naturalized -- because that information had to be provided on their
form in order to prove they were a citizen and had the right to vote.

Was your grandma a registered Republican, Democrat, Socialist, or
Other? In what exact court and on what exact date was your grandpa
naturalized? Now you can find out!

Read our full newsletter here, with all the details and the links to
the records:

As always, the records we post are in the public domain and totally
free, no logins or paywalls or usage restrictions. You can also
download the list as PDF's for offline use, if you prefer. Happy
searching!

Yizkor Book Project, October 2016 #ukraine

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Where do I begin? So much has happened of late. Firstly, I am pleased to
inform you that over October we completed uploading translations >from no
less than five books and they are:

Two books that were prepared by William Liebner and kindly donated to the YB
Project - "Blood Stained Feathers; The Life Story of a Shoah Survivor"
(Nowy Sacz, Poland) and the Zabrze Yizkor Book (Zabrze, Poland)
"The Memorial book: the Ritavas Community; A Tribute to the Memory of our
Town" (Rietavas, Lithuania), permission for which was gratefully received
from Romi Kaplan of the Kaplan-Kushlick Foundation in Capetown.
"Our Shtetl; Vysotsk memorial book" (Vysotsk, Ukraine) which was translated
by Kevin Allen and we do thank he and Sara Allen for this important
contribution to our site.
"Our town, Neishtot" (Zemaiciu Naumiestis, Lithuania) which was translated
and gratefully donated to the YB book by Dr. Benjamin Lesin.

The YB Project now has 123 books fully online and in the coming months, I
foresee further books achieving the completely online status. Some projects,
however, are just at their outset and this past month, a new Translations
Fund was setup for the Zbarazh, Ukraine Yizkor with a view to funding the
translation of this book. We now have over 80 of the Yizkor Book Translation
Funds that have been setup to enable people to financially support the
professional translation of the community books. Please see link to this
list at the end of this report to the list of funds.

Another milestone this past month was the publishing of two more books (now
52 all in all) by the Yizkor Books in Print Project:

"Radzyn Memorial Book" (Radzyn Podlaski, Poland)
"The Unlikely Hero of Sobrance" (Sobrance, Slovakia)

Joel Alpert and team continue to work tirelessly to make these books
available for the benefit of many. Details of the books now available can be
found via the link appearing at the end of this report.

Finally, we added in a number of entries >from the Yad Vashem "Pinkasim"
series (Encyclopedias of Jewish Communities) including quite a few
translations about Latvia communities which were provided by the Latvia SIG
and we do appreciate these very welcome additions to our project. The
"Pinkas" series provides unique information on so many communities that
don't have their own Yizkor book. Although we do have a large number of
translations of community entries >from these volumes available in the YB
site, we are always on the lookout to continue this endeavor.

If you would like to know more about the "Pinkasim" series, the Yizkor Book
Project in general, or would like to become involved in our project, I would
definitely like to hear >from you.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried out
in the Yizkor Book Project over October.

We have added in two new books:

Kolozsvar-Klausenburg, which perished in the Holocaust)

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Yizkor Book Project, October 2016 #ukraine

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Where do I begin? So much has happened of late. Firstly, I am pleased to
inform you that over October we completed uploading translations >from no
less than five books and they are:

Two books that were prepared by William Liebner and kindly donated to the YB
Project - "Blood Stained Feathers; The Life Story of a Shoah Survivor"
(Nowy Sacz, Poland) and the Zabrze Yizkor Book (Zabrze, Poland)
"The Memorial book: the Ritavas Community; A Tribute to the Memory of our
Town" (Rietavas, Lithuania), permission for which was gratefully received
from Romi Kaplan of the Kaplan-Kushlick Foundation in Capetown.
"Our Shtetl; Vysotsk memorial book" (Vysotsk, Ukraine) which was translated
by Kevin Allen and we do thank he and Sara Allen for this important
contribution to our site.
"Our town, Neishtot" (Zemaiciu Naumiestis, Lithuania) which was translated
and gratefully donated to the YB book by Dr. Benjamin Lesin.

The YB Project now has 123 books fully online and in the coming months, I
foresee further books achieving the completely online status. Some projects,
however, are just at their outset and this past month, a new Translations
Fund was setup for the Zbarazh, Ukraine Yizkor with a view to funding the
translation of this book. We now have over 80 of the Yizkor Book Translation
Funds that have been setup to enable people to financially support the
professional translation of the community books. Please see link to this
list at the end of this report to the list of funds.

Another milestone this past month was the publishing of two more books (now
52 all in all) by the Yizkor Books in Print Project:

"Radzyn Memorial Book" (Radzyn Podlaski, Poland)
"The Unlikely Hero of Sobrance" (Sobrance, Slovakia)

Joel Alpert and team continue to work tirelessly to make these books
available for the benefit of many. Details of the books now available can be
found via the link appearing at the end of this report.

Finally, we added in a number of entries >from the Yad Vashem "Pinkasim"
series (Encyclopedias of Jewish Communities) including quite a few
translations about Latvia communities which were provided by the Latvia SIG
and we do appreciate these very welcome additions to our project. The
"Pinkas" series provides unique information on so many communities that
don't have their own Yizkor book. Although we do have a large number of
translations of community entries >from these volumes available in the YB
site, we are always on the lookout to continue this endeavor.

If you would like to know more about the "Pinkasim" series, the Yizkor Book
Project in general, or would like to become involved in our project, I would
definitely like to hear >from you.

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