Yizkor book - Thank You #general

molly gordy <mgordy@...>
 

I would like to thank all the Yizkor Book Project volunteers for the
tremendous mitzvah they are creating. I never knew such things existed
until I joined the discussion group. Earlier, JGenner Joan Rosen of
Pennsylvania mailed me the memorial pages >from my grandfather's shtetl,
Novograd-Volinsk, and I was able to determine that his immediate family was
not among the long list of Holocaust victims. Then I went to the NY Public
Library Dorot Jewish Division, where a very helpful librarian translated a
whole section about my great-great grandfather! Thanks to you, I now know
that the family descended >from the Baal Shem Tov, and that the reason we are
all so short is that my great-great grandma was a dwarf! I am going to
purchase the book, and if there are any Hebrew speakers in the NYC area
who'd like to volunteer time to translate portions of it, I'd be delighted
to make it available.

BACHRACH, KAZNELENBOGEN, etc. #general

AIChernoff@...
 

In attempting to translate a book about the haLevi Eppstein family tree, I
have come across names such as Bachrach, Kaznelenbogen, Feibush, Mainz and
others which are detailed in portions of this book. These relate,
apparently, to families marrying into offspring of the haLevi Eppstein men or
women. The finding of a Kaznelenbogen >from Venice may be of interest in the
light of a recent e-mail on this net. As these genealogies have not been
directly related to my own search, I have not tried to unravel them. If
someone is interested in having copies of the Hebrew text to translate, please
contact me directly at aichernoff@... I would only ask in return.for a
translation of the text sent.
Regards,
Amoz Chernoff

BERKOVSKY= BERKOVICH? #general

Irene Newhouse <newhoir@...>
 

One of my relatives, who changed his name to BERG in the US, noted in an
affidavit for sponsoring my family that he'd changed it >from BERKOVSKY.
Looking at the necrology for our home Shtetl, there are lots of
BERKOVICH/BERKOWITZ-es, but no BERKOVSKYs. A family post card >from 1941
has it spelled BIRKOWSKI. The region changed hands >from Russia to Poland,
to USSR. Since the 2 different endings mean the same in Polish & Russian,
I'm beginning to wonder if some of the family didn't change the name
depending on who was in charge. Has anyone run into something similar?

Hebrew Translation Required #general

Stephen Mednick <smednick@...>
 

As part of my efforts to trace my MEDNICK family I wrote to a number of
addresses in Israel. This morning I received in the mail an aerogram from
one of the Israeli MEDNICKs but unfortunately it's written in Hebrew. It's
only a short one-page letter and I was wondering if there is someone out
there who I could fax a copy to who would be kind enough to translate it for
me.
