Yizkor Book Project, June 2016 #scandinavia

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

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

Yizkor Book Project, June 2016 #dna

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
Yizkor Book Project over June.

During this last month we have added in 3 new books:

- Bochnia, Poland (Scroll of Bochnia)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Bochnia/Bochnia.html

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.

During this last month we have added in 3 new books:

Bialystok City Vital Records #poland

Rolando Gail <rolandogail@...>
 

Hi, Mark, or whoever is able to answer this:
First of all, I'm grateful for the great service the Archives
are doing for Us, the genealogists. But...
Can any of you tell me why the index pages of each year
(when available) are not being scanned, or at least, published?
These would be a great help for all of Us.
Warmest regards >from Argentina
Rolando Gail

Subject: Bialystok City Vital Records
From: Mark Gordon <urbana44@...>
Date: Thu, 7 Jul 2016 21:19:07 -0400
X-Message-Number: 1

During the past week, the Archiwum Panstwowe w Bialymstoku has
added significantly more digital images to its online collection of
Jewish birth, marriage, divorce and death records for the City of
Bialystok. This Archives had previously digitized City records up
to 1886 sourced directly >from Mormon Church microfilms. The new
images, comprised of high resolution color scans, cover years 1887-
1910. While most of these records had been previously indexed in
a joint project involving the Archives staff and Jewish Records
Indexing - Poland (JRI-PL), now the original images are newly
available online.

Many of these new scans are exclusively in Russian Cyrillic script
since they do not include the Hebrew columns noted in some earlier
years.
Shown below is a link to this file:
http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/4/264/0/str/1/100?ps=3DTrue&tabJednostki

An alternate way to access this file is to initiate an indexing search
through JRI-PL and then click on the archival link at the top of the
results.

Hi, Mark, or whoever is able to answer this:
First of all, I'm grateful for the great service the Archives
are doing for Us, the genealogists. But...
Can any of you tell me why the index pages of each year
(when available) are not being scanned, or at least, published?
These would be a great help for all of Us.
Warmest regards >from Argentina

Subject: Bialystok City Vital Records
From: Mark Gordon <urbana44@...>

X-Message-Number: 1

During the past week, the Archiwum Panstwowe w Bialymstoku has
added significantly more digital images to its online collection of
Jewish birth, marriage, divorce and death records for the City of
Bialystok. This Archives had previously digitized City records up
to 1886 sourced directly >from Mormon Church microfilms. The new
images, comprised of high resolution color scans, cover years 1887-
1910. While most of these records had been previously indexed in
a joint project involving the Archives staff and Jewish Records
Indexing - Poland (JRI-PL), now the original images are newly
available online.

Many of these new scans are exclusively in Russian Cyrillic script
since they do not include the Hebrew columns noted in some earlier
years.
Shown below is a link to this file:

An alternate way to access this file is to initiate an indexing search
through JRI-PL and then click on the archival link at the top of the
results.

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.
