I visited this cemetery in 2000 and to my recollection, the cemetery is on
the outskirts of town and was fenced but not locked.

Recently, a family member visited Nusfalau but found the cemetery to be
locked, she could not get in. It appeared that the fence had been built up
since 2000. I am wondering if anyone is familiar with the area, and can
offer suggestions on whom to contact to gain entry. Another relative is
planning to visit in a few months. In particular, we are looking to get a
better photo of GGGF's stone. Thanks.

This could be a good project for JOWBR. Please contact me off-list if you would be
interested in working on such an effort.

Viewmate interpretation Cursive "G" #france

bernerfolk
 

I've posted a section of a passenger list for a Holland America ship
sailing >from Boulogne-Sur-Mer in 1898. Line 2 clearly looks like the
Grimberg or Grienberg family. Line 20 (not shown) also has a surname
starting with the same letter, however, lines lines 8 and 10 have an
upper case "G" but it's a completely different form.

I'm wondering whether in France (embarkation) or Holland (ship line)
they used two different forms of the "G" to indicate a different sound,
whether line 2 is not a 'G' at all, or whether it's just a steward who
went back and forth on how he made his "G".

Lessons in Jewish DNA at JGS Cleveland #general

"Lessons in Jewish DNA - One Man's Journey and What He Learned on the Journey."
at JGS Cleveland

Genetic genealogist Israel Pickholtz is the featured speaker at the
Sunday, February 5th meeting of the Jewish Genealogy Society of
Cleveland. Pickholtz will discuss how he enjoyed significant
successes using DNA to sort out relationships in his family, despite
the complexities of Jewish marital connections. The lessons he will
discuss are relevant to both Jewish and general genealogy.

Israel Pickholtz has lived in Israel since 1973 and now resides in
Jerusalem. He has done serious family research for nearly twenty
years. His flagship work is the Pikholz Project, a single-surname
project to identify and reconnect all Pikholz descendants.

Alongside his work as a professional genealogist, taking clients in
Israel and abroad, Pickholtz became heavily involved in genetic
genealogy in 2013. He manages test kits of over ninety family members
at last count. In August 2015 he published a book "ENDOGAMY: One
Family, One People," available at www.endogamy-one-family.com . He
blogs at http://allmyforeparents.blogspot.com and receives mail at
IsraelP@pikholz.org.

The Jewish Genealogy Society of Cleveland meets on the first Sunday
afternoon of the month in the winter, starting at 1:30 PM in the Men's
Club Board Room at Park Synagogue East, 27500 Shaker Blvd, Pepper
Pike. Board members are available at a Help Desk >from 1:00 PM to
assist with individual research questions. Guests are welcome. RSVP

JGSCT Program February 2017 #general

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Connecticut presents Jewish Genealogical
Research in Ukraine on Sunday, February 19, 2017 at 1:30 pm at Temple Sinai, 41
West Hartford Road, Newington, CT 06111. This program is free and open to the
public.

Ms. Diamond discusses various strategies used to get documents from
Ukraine: hiring private researchers, crowdsourcing research for
specific towns, and utilizing the Family History Library's resources.
Many of these strategies also apply to much of Eastern Europe. The
talk includes demonstrations of the wide variety of document types
available for different parts of Ukraine (including those parts
formerly in the Russian Empire, Austro-Hungarian Empire and Poland),
allowing you to both trace your family back generations and to gain
an understanding of the people they were.

Responding to Jenny Rappaort's post:

For what it's worth: According to family stories, my grandfather
Berek CYMERMAN, served in the Tsar's Army in 1905. He was a horse groom.

While I know the names of the horses (Blackie and Neil!), I've been told
that one has to know the recruit's rank, brigade and all those other
unknowns in order to obtain any records. Needless to say I don't have
those. I, too, hope to hear another way to find those records.

Russian Vital Records Translation Please #poland

Nomi Waksberg <nwaksberg@...>
 

Hello,

I've posted a vital record for which I need a translation.

This is a birth record of 1898, I believe it is in Russian.

I would like to know :
1. the full name of each parent (given, sur and maiden),
2. verification of town name,
3. verification of date of birth (Month/ Day/Year), as I've learned
that often the recorded birthdate and actual birthdate year are
not the same.

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

If viewing is too difficult, please let me know and I can send a
higher resolution image to you directly.

Thank you.

Cemetery in Nusfalau, Romania #romania

Steve Stein
 

There is a Jewish cemetery in Nusfalau (a.k.a. Szilagynagyfalu), in Salaj
County in Transylvania. It is not in great condition but has several good
quality, legible headstones, among them that of my great-great-grandfather.
I visited this cemetery in 2000 and to my recollection, the cemetery is on
the outskirts of town and was fenced but not locked.

Recently, a family member visited Nusfalau but found the cemetery to be
locked, she could not get in. It appeared that the fence had been built up
since 2000. I am wondering if anyone is familiar with the area, and can
offer suggestions on whom to contact to gain entry. Another relative is
planning to visit in a few months. In particular, we are looking to get a
better photo of GGGF's stone. Thanks.

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

This week's selection is more light-hearted than some of the Yizkor book excerpts
we've recently posted. In the Yizkor book of Dzialoszyce, Poland, a town about 27
miles northeast of Krakow, Dov Bejski writes of some of the folklore that had also
been lost in the Holocaust, or as he says, "songs, legends and stories, proverbs
and riddles, and comedy and jokes that were created over time." This chapter offers
the bonus of 32 "clever sayings" in Yiddish. Sources vary on the Jewish population
of Dzialoszyce just before the German occupation. The Yizkor book itself said, "Of
the 10,000 Jewish residents of the town, 4,000 were shot and murdered, and the rest
were sent to extermination camps." You can find the full JewishGen translation here
(http://bit.ly/2jIPZZO). This translation is also available in print
(http://bit.ly/2jI3jgF).
