Zagare Tora and Gemora Learners - 1803-1875 #lithuania

DNHIowa@...
 

We have just received a generous gift of the list of Tora and Gemora Learners
of the Zagare Chadash, circa 1803-1875. These records will be a wonderful
supplement to the 1858 Revision Lists >from Zagare, and will help to give an
even more complete picture of our ancestors in this area.

The lists are in Hebrew.

If this project intrigues you, please contact me regarding translation and/or
database input.

Never heard of Rokiskis, but if you don't have Zagare to work on I'll
volunteer to work on Rokiskis. Let me know. = = = Frank E. Schochet

I could probably do it, though my knowledge and fluency in Russian is
stale. Perhaps someone could draft it in English (assuming we're talking
about a form letter) then I could translate it to Russian.

FYI - I am new to the genealogy effort and have lots to learn.

It would be particularly helpful if someone with Russian/Lithuanian
language skills could post a form of the letter in a fill-in-the-blank
type format to facilitate the preparation of individual letters for the
many of us who would need language assistance to prepare such letters.

Is there a Russian Language form letter we can download?

Israel Pickholtz

MODERATOR'S NOTE: Perhaps one of our Russian speaking members can help us.
If someone is able to do a form letter, we can put it on the Belarus SIG
website so members can find it when they need it.
