The other main document resource for Ukraine SIG #ukraine

Janette Silverman
 

When I posted messages abut our document acquisitions earlier this week,
I was only focused on the material we get directly >from European
archives. We have another main source of digital documents and that has
been through the amazing scanning project that's been going on under the
direction of Harvey Kabaker for the last several years. During that
time we have acquired 10s of 1000s of images >from the microfilm
collections at the Family History Library which our volunteers have
scanned. Most of these have not yet been translated or transcribed,
although we have some very dedicated and hard working volunteers who
have been working on those translations and transcriptions, and town
leaders and others who have undertaken fund raising projects to hire
translators.

Currently we are having discussions with the Family History Library
which we hope will result in them sharing the digital versions of the
documents >from towns in Ukraine SIG which they have been converting from
their microfilms of those records. Any documents we acquire whether
through our own scanning efforts or through direct agreements with the
FHL cannot be circulated. With the exception of the translators
themselves, the only way to have access to those documents is to go to a
Family History Center and, using their microfilm readers, look at the
document on their premises.

Remember, no matter how we acquire documents, in order to find what you
are looking for, the documents need to be translated and transcribed in
order to be indexed so they can be searched through the JewishGen
databases.

Yizkor Book Project, June 2016 #ukraine

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

So what can I tell you about the Yizkor Book Project in June? For a start,
there were quite a few new books and entries added over the past month,
which is always great to see. The past month saw, as usual, updates to many
of our existing projects and many of these are getting that much closer to
completion. Hopefully, I'll be able inform you about finalized projects in
the very near future.

Last month I let you know about the necrology database, which is ably led by
Max Heffler, and I am pleased to inform you that around 5,000 new entries
were added to this database over June. This particular database is an
important research tool for finding information about families and
individuals killed in the Holocaust. Yet another piece of the puzzle to help
us learn about our past. For more information, please see:

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/

In my last report I noted the YBMNI (Yizkor Book Main Names Index) and this
too, continues to plough ahead and more entries will be added soon. We are
still in need of volunteers to help us move this project along and if you
would like to help out, have some free time and are proficient with Excel,
I'd like to hear >from you.

Apart >from volunteering, another important way of supporting the work we do,
is by donating to any of our Translation Funds. We have set up these funds
to facilitate the translation of the Yizkor Books by professional
translators and your donation will certainly help to make this happen and
for those of you who are US citizens, donations to the funds are tax exempt.
Please see the link at the end of this report for the JewishGen-erosity page
with details of the various funds.

And now for all the changes and additions that were carried out in the

Interpretation help on surname of Shunalovetts #general

Helen Timmins <helen_timmins@...>
 

Trying to find more information on the family of Ruth Carrie Shunalovetts
(obviously spell incorrectly) who married Isaac Moses Davis in Germany/Russia.

Their son, David Moses married Clara Drielsma in St. George in the East in the
UK in 1880.

He later divorced Clara in Australia under the name of Moses Davis in 1889.
In 1890, Moses Davis married Rose Ann Taylor in Kempsey, NSW Australia. On
this marriage transcription his parents are listed as Isaac Moses and Ruth
Carrie Shunalovetts.

It appears they may have travelled back to the UK as on the 1891 census there
is a Mose and Rose Davis, Mose >from Germany and Rose >from Australia.
Possibly with his three daughters >from previous marriage to Clara; Caroline,
Born UK 1881; Miriam, born UK 1884 and Emily, born Australia 1885.

Any help would be appreciated,

Hi,

First, re the word for deaf in current Hungarian. It is suket (with the tw=

be siket. My big Hungarian-English dictionary form the 1970's does not even=
have the word siket in it. And most online dictionaries also give you suke=
t first except in the deaf and dumb combination siketnema. However in check=
ing more about it, it seems that deaf people in Hungary today use the word =
siket for themselves because they feel that suket in Hungarian has a negati=
ve connotation meaning people who won't listen or who are a bit stupid. =
=20

from the earlier usage the word siket has remained in the name of the "nati=
onal association of deaf and hard of hearing" which in Hungarian is Sikete=
k es Nagyothallok Orszagos Szovetsege: http://sinosz.hu/ (there is an Engli=
sh page on the site). This organization was established in 1907 and has kep=
t the word "siket" in their name since the founding. Perhaps one can write =
to them for information about the Jewish institute of earlier times.

Secondly, re Jewish deaf and dumb institute in Budapest: I don't have enoug=
h time to research this but there were several institutes established in th=
e 19th century already in Budapest and it's quite possible that the Jewish =
community of Budapest was well ahead of others in looking after deaf and bl=
ind students and in establishing institutes for them. So there was an Isra=
elite deaf and dumb institute established in Budapest in its own specially =
designed and erected building in 1878 at Mexikoi ut 60. This institute to=
ok in non-Jews as well. Here is a photo of the building:

Jewish records of Eisenstadt - Edel Regina #hungary

Dear Genners,

Researching in the Index of Jewish records of Burgenland, Austria, between
1832 and 1895 in GenTeam, I came across EDEL Regina a widow who died in
Eisenstadt in December 24th 1860 at the age of 83.
My GGGGM was regina EDEL who married my GGGGF Peter Jozsef Reinitz. They
lived in Nagykanizsa but in 1822 Regina lived in Kismarton/Eisestadt and
afterwards in Vienna.

I could not find records of the residents of Kismarton in 1822. Can anyone
help?

Thank you,

Yizkor Book Project, June 2016 #hungary

bounce-3174440-772961@...
 

Shalom,

So what can I tell you about the Yizkor Book Project in June? For a start,
there were quite a few new books and entries added over the past month,
which is always great to see. The past month saw, as usual, updates to many
of our existing projects and many of these are getting that much closer to
completion. Hopefully, I'll be able inform you about finalized projects in
the very near future.

Last month I let you know about the necrology database, which is ably led by
Max Heffler, and I am pleased to inform you that around 5,000 new entries
were added to this database over June. This particular database is an
important research tool for finding information about families and
individuals killed in the Holocaust. Yet another piece of the puzzle to help
us learn about our past. For more information, please see:

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/

In my last report I noted the YBMNI (Yizkor Book Main Names Index) and this
too, continues to plough ahead and more entries will be added soon. We are
still in need of volunteers to help us move this project along and if you
would like to help out, have some free time and are proficient with Excel,
I'd like to hear >from you.

Apart >from volunteering, another important way of supporting the work we do,
is by donating to any of our Translation Funds. We have set up these funds
to facilitate the translation of the Yizkor Books by professional
translators and your donation will certainly help to make this happen and
for those of you who are US citizens, donations to the funds are tax exempt.
Please see the link at the end of this report for the JewishGen-erosity page
with details of the various funds.

And now for all the changes and additions that were carried out in the
Yizkor Book Project over June.

Manhattan State Hospital, Wards Island, NYC in 1930 U.S. Census #general

Errol Schneegurt
 

Searching the 1930 Federal Census I came across the portion related to the
Manhattan State Hospital, Wards Island NYC, Enumeration District 31-842. I
found that the list had only male inmates. Is there separate sheets for the
female population of the Hospital?

Does it seem logical that there would only be one sheet for the male
population and none for females?

WWI fighting around Dlugosiodlo/Kamienczyk, Poland area? #general

David W. Perle
 

Hi, all. I thought I'd see if I could track down some information corroborating
a story about my grandfather when he was a child in the Dlugosiodlo/Kamiencyzk
area during WWI.

The story goes that he and others at one particular time were hiding in a
foxhole during fighting when it collapsed on them/him and the others
frightfully tried to dig him out before he'd suffocate or get crushed. (Spoiler
alert--he survived.)

Hi, all. I thought I'd see if I could track down some information corroborating
a story about my grandfather when he was a child in the Dlugosiodlo/Kamiencyzk
area during WWI.

The story goes that he and others at one particular time were hiding in a
foxhole during fighting when it collapsed on them/him and the others
frightfully tried to dig him out before he'd suffocate or get crushed. (Spoiler
alert--he survived.)

I Googled to see if I could find any references to battles/fighting around
there but didn't notice anything. Any leads?

Finding Seltzer Merchants #general

Hello fellow genners,

I am researching my GOLDBERG family ancestry. Every male is listed as working
in the seltzer industry in New York City in the early to mid-1900s. I have
"googled" the history of and records related to seltzer and found 1 article
about the history.

Does anyone know if companies kept records of their employees? Where would I
find them?

I would appreciate any tips on how to further this research,.

Thank you
