objects or photos bringing back memories of former Jewish life in Lviv
(Lwow, Lemberg) or for particular stories or memories they would like
to share. Any such items should kindly be sent, with descriptions, to
Natalia Yeromenko at <n.yeromenko@lvivcenter.org>.

- objects that recall family >from Lwow;
- trips to Lwow and places there connected with family members;
- images of descendants of Jewish families >from Galicia.

Emigration records, pre WW II #unitedkingdom

jberlowitz331@...
 

Dear SIGgers,

My distant cousin, Clara PHILIPSBORN (b. Kiel, Germany, 1890),
reportedly visited her nephew, Gunther BERENDT, in London late in
1938. Gunther had narrowly escaped deportation >from Berlin iin 1937
and he and his family received assistance in the UK and abroad from
their relatives >from the MOND and MATHIAS families. Other members of
the family had contacted these relatives in England for assistance,
with varying success. Gunther reported that Clara had returned to
Spain, where she had been volunteering with the International Brigades
as a nurse and translator. He did not hear >from her again and assumed
that she had been killed in Spain. Her nieces, however, reported that
Clara had reached Lima, Peru and died there of natural causes.
Unfortunately, the nieces are no longer living and their children were
not told anything. I'm wondering if perhaps Clara was able to
emigrate directly >from England to South America and I'd like to know
if there are searchable sources for emigration of stateless
German-born nationals >from 1938-1939.

new data available #ukraine

Janette Silverman
 

Thank you all who responded to my request for donations for the last
batch of data (about 10,000 images) we have the opportunity to acquire-
I am happy to report that the costs to acquire those images was about
$2200 not $2800 as I originally estimated and thanks to everyone's
generosity, we have received $1500 towards that goal.

Today, I woke up to an email >from the CAHJP telling me that more
documents have been acquired >from GAKO - the Kiev archives:

--1850-51 census of Jews which includes the following shtetls in the
Kiev Gubernia: Byshev, Dymer, Borodianka, Motyzhin, Rokitno


--and new materials >from the 1897 All-Russian census for Berdichev

All together, these are an addition 3336 pages of documents. It will
cost us a little over $800 to acquire these, bringing my original
estimate of $2800 close to target - between these two batches of data,
we need to raise $3000 - we are halfway there.

I would love, at the upcoming IAJGS conference to be able to announce
that we have received enough contributions to acquire the 13,000 new
pages. The data I previously announced came from


Vital records >from Zhitomir Archives (GAZhO) - Leschchin - births
1863-1882, Ianushpol - births 1865-1874, Zhitomir births 1896-1907 and
marriages 1895-191


Revision lists >from the Kiev Archives (GAKO):
1795: Radomsyl, Brailov, Brusilov, Korotyshev, Malin, Khodorkov, Rozhev,
Chernobyl, Khabno, Radmyclskii, Ivankov, Gornostaipol and Steblev

1816: Vasilkov, Belaia Tserkov, Fastov, Rokitna

1818:Kiev, Borodianka, Dymer, Rzhishchev, Romno, Iasnogorodka, Byshev,
Ignatovka, Makarov

1834: Makhnovka

1850: Berdichev, Gostoml Ignatovka, Iasnogorodka, Vasilkov, Krasnoe

1850-1852: Belaia Tserkov

1851-1858:Vasilkov

1851-1854: Berdichev

1851: Priluki

To donate, please choose the "Donate" button on the Ukraine SIG page,
then "donate" then Digital Documents Acquistion and Transcription
Project. If by some chance we get more in donations than the $3,000
needed to acquire all of these documents (13,336 images) then we will
put the additional donations towards transcription/translation. For that
second part, if we have to pay translators, it will cost at least
$50,000 - my hope is that we will be able to use a combination of
volunteers and translators.

More Posts from site surveys in Bukovina 12 July 2016 - Budinetz, Chudey, Berehomet #ukraine

baruch@...
 

Dear Czernowitzers,

The World Organization of Bukovina Jews delegation visited North Bukovina
Jewish Heritage Sites
in the area of Storozhynetz and Czernowitz on 11-15 July 2016.
In addition to filling the site surveys (I've posted them before) we took
more pictures. In the next few days I'll post them to the group.
Today you can see below the set of visits on 12 July 2016.

Budinetz Memorial:
http://www.eylonconsulting.com/bukovina/blog/?p=1566

Chudey: Jewish Cemetery and Memorial:
http://www.eylonconsulting.com/bukovina/blog/?p=1575

Berehomet: A factory was built on the Jewish Cemetery and no graves
remained. Only a memory room exists now in the factory yard.
http://www.eylonconsulting.com/bukovina/blog/?p=1600

We have covered in this trip 12 site surveys and visited a few more. My
previous post generation some interest/feedback,
but what WE NEED MOST IS VOLUNTEERS!!
Our list has more than 700 sites and obviously our team alone would not be
able to finish it soon....

If you are planning to visit Bukovina or Transnistria and willing to devote
~20 minutes to also capture the site information
with the mobile app (to then put it in our website) - please contact me on
my private email. All can then enjoy it.

Best regards and thanks in advance on behalf of our Project Committee,

This summer, I will be attending the IAJGS Conference in Seattle, WA, August
7-12, 2016 . Usually, you are used to reading my posts on various topics
on the Jewish Genealogy Facebook Pages, the JewishGen digests or the JewishGen
Blog. Now, you will have the opportunity to see my posts for the duration
of the Conference ONLY on the JewishGen Facebook Page which you should
"LIKE" and sign up for.

For those of you who are attendees at the Conference, you may see me at a
session, perhaps in the resource room, at a lab, or a luncheon or a social
event. I'll try and cover a bit of it all. So, if you recognize me,
please do stop and say hello. Tell me what you are doing and what you are
learning and what brick walls you are trying to break down.

If you are unable to attend the Conference, be sure to look at the JewishGen
Facebook Page as I will be posting there once a day. Also, remember to
get "LIVE"to see gavel-to-gavel coverage of the sessions.
In this way, you will be able to keep up with what is happening at the
Conference.

I'm looking forward to interacting with you all and learning a lot
at the Conference. See you soon!!!
