Yizkor Book Project, September 2016 #sephardic

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

My monthly Yizkor Book report to you is in perfect timing to wish you all a
Shana Tova Umetuka or, in other words, a Sweet New Year!

This month I am extremely proud to announce the completion of two books. The
first is the Radzyn Podlaski, Poland Yizkor book which was translated by
Nachman, Temy and Yaakov Goldwasser and includes some additional
translations kindly donated through the auspices of Monica Westrick. The
completion of this book is a wonderful achievement and is the result of many
years of labor of love. The second book is the Radyvyliv, Ukraine Yizkor
book which was coordinated by Ron Doctor and Ellen Garshick. Ellen
coordinated the translation prepared by a dedicated band of translators and
all those involved in this project are definitely deserving of our grateful
appreciation for this successful end result.

Another contribution to the Yizkor Book Project over this past month was an
article kindly donated to us by Myrna Brodsky Siegel in which she describes
how she became involved in the translation of the Maychet (Molchadz) Yizkor
book. This book is yet another that has been completely translated and also
one that has been published by the Yizkor Books in Print Project. The
success of this project only came about because of Myrna's unending
dedication to seeing it through. For those of you involved in the
coordination or translation of a Yizkor book, this is a worthwhile read and
may be found at our Yizkor Book Insights page:
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybinsights.html

And in regards to the Yizkor Books in Print Project, this past month it
published, can you believe it, its 50th book: "Memorial Book of Goniadz
Poland". I have run out of superlatives to thank Joel Alpert and his team
and just look forward to seeing the next 50 books go to print. Details of
where this book and the other 49 books now available can be seen at
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html

On a much sadder note, we learnt this week about the untimely passing of Ada
Holtzman z"l whose name you may be familiar with because it does widely
throughout the Yizkor Book Project. Over the years, Ada contributed numerous
translations and was ever willing to assist where she could in helping out
in the YB Project. She was above all, a true "mensch", and my saying that
she will be sorely missed is definitely an understatement.

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

We have added in three new books:

- Khomsk, Belarus (Scroll of Khomsk)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Khomsk/Khomsk.html

Shalom,

My monthly Yizkor Book report to you is in perfect timing to wish you all a
Shana Tova Umetuka or, in other words, a Sweet New Year!

This month I am extremely proud to announce the completion of two books. The
first is the Radzyn Podlaski, Poland Yizkor book which was translated by
Nachman, Temy and Yaakov Goldwasser and includes some additional
translations kindly donated through the auspices of Monica Westrick. The
completion of this book is a wonderful achievement and is the result of many
years of labor of love. The second book is the Radyvyliv, Ukraine Yizkor
book which was coordinated by Ron Doctor and Ellen Garshick. Ellen
coordinated the translation prepared by a dedicated band of translators and
all those involved in this project are definitely deserving of our grateful
appreciation for this successful end result.

Another contribution to the Yizkor Book Project over this past month was an
article kindly donated to us by Myrna Brodsky Siegel in which she describes
how she became involved in the translation of the Maychet (Molchadz) Yizkor
book. This book is yet another that has been completely translated and also
one that has been published by the Yizkor Books in Print Project. The
success of this project only came about because of Myrna's unending
dedication to seeing it through. For those of you involved in the
coordination or translation of a Yizkor book, this is a worthwhile read and
may be found at our Yizkor Book Insights page:
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybinsights.html

And in regards to the Yizkor Books in Print Project, this past month it
published, can you believe it, its 50th book: "Memorial Book of Goniadz
Poland". I have run out of superlatives to thank Joel Alpert and his team
and just look forward to seeing the next 50 books go to print. Details of
where this book and the other 49 books now available can be seen at
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html

On a much sadder note, we learnt this week about the untimely passing of Ada
Holtzman z"l whose name you may be familiar with because it does widely
throughout the Yizkor Book Project. Over the years, Ada contributed numerous
translations and was ever willing to assist where she could in helping out
in the YB Project. She was above all, a true "mensch", and my saying that
she will be sorely missed is definitely an understatement.

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

We have added in three new books:

- Khomsk, Belarus (Scroll of Khomsk)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Khomsk/Khomsk.html

Another contribution to the Yizkor Book Project over this past month was an
article kindly donated to us by Myrna Brodsky Siegel in which she describes
how she became involved in the translation of the Maychet (Molchadz) Yizkor
book. This book is yet another that has been completely translated and also
one that has been published by the Yizkor Books in Print Project. The
success of this project only came about because of Myrna's unending
dedication to seeing it through. For those of you involved in the
coordination or translation of a Yizkor book, this is a worthwhile read and
may be found at our Yizkor Book Insights page:
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybinsights.html

And in regards to the Yizkor Books in Print Project, this past month it
published, can you believe it, its 50th book: "Memorial Book of Goniadz
Poland". I have run out of superlatives to thank Joel Alpert and his team
and just look forward to seeing the next 50 books go to print. Details of
where this book and the other 49 books now available can be seen at
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html

On a much sadder note, we learnt this week about the untimely passing of Ada
Holtzman z"l whose name you may be familiar with because it does widely
throughout the Yizkor Book Project. Over the years, Ada contributed numerous
translations and was ever willing to assist where she could in helping out
in the YB Project. She was above all, a true "mensch", and my saying that
she will be sorely missed is definitely an understatement.

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

We have added in three new books:

- Khomsk, Belarus (Scroll of Khomsk)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Khomsk/Khomsk.html

Shalom,

My monthly Yizkor Book report to you is in perfect timing to wish you all a
Shana Tova Umetuka or, in other words, a Sweet New Year!

This month I am extremely proud to announce the completion of two books. The
first is the Radzyn Podlaski, Poland Yizkor book which was translated by
Nachman, Temy and Yaakov Goldwasser and includes some additional
translations kindly donated through the auspices of Monica Westrick. The
completion of this book is a wonderful achievement and is the result of many
years of labor of love. The second book is the Radyvyliv, Ukraine Yizkor
book which was coordinated by Ron Doctor and Ellen Garshick. Ellen
coordinated the translation prepared by a dedicated band of translators and
all those involved in this project are definitely deserving of our grateful
appreciation for this successful end result.

And in regards to the Yizkor Books in Print Project, this past month it
published, can you believe it, its 50th book: "Memorial Book of Goniadz

and just look forward to seeing the next 50 books go to print. Details of
where this book and the other 49 books now available can be seen at
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html

On a much sadder note, we learnt this week about the untimely passing of Ada
Holtzman z"l whose name you may be familiar with because it does widely
throughout the Yizkor Book Project. Over the years, Ada contributed numerous
translations and was ever willing to assist where she could in helping out
in the YB Project. She was above all, a true "mensch", and my saying that
she will be sorely missed is definitely an understatement.

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

Yizkor Book Project, September 2016 #yizkorbooks

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

My monthly Yizkor Book report to you is in perfect timing to wish you all a
Shana Tova Umetuka or, in other words, a Sweet New Year!

This month I am extremely proud to announce the completion of two books. The
first is the Radzyn Podlaski, Poland Yizkor book which was translated by
Nachman, Temy and Yaakov Goldwasser and includes some additional
translations kindly donated through the auspices of Monica Westrick. The
completion of this book is a wonderful achievement and is the result of many
years of labor of love. The second book is the Radyvyliv, Ukraine Yizkor
book which was coordinated by Ron Doctor and Ellen Garshick. Ellen
coordinated the translation prepared by a dedicated band of translators and
all those involved in this project are definitely deserving of our grateful
appreciation for this successful end result.

Another contribution to the Yizkor Book Project over this past month was an
article kindly donated to us by Myrna Brodsky Siegel in which she describes
how she became involved in the translation of the Maychet (Molchadz) Yizkor
book. This book is yet another that has been completely translated and also
one that has been published by the Yizkor Books in Print Project. The
success of this project only came about because of Myrna's unending
dedication to seeing it through. For those of you involved in the
coordination or translation of a Yizkor book, this is a worthwhile read and
may be found at our Yizkor Book Insights page:
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybinsights.html

And in regards to the Yizkor Books in Print Project, this past month it
published, can you believe it, its 50th book: "Memorial Book of Goniadz
Poland". I have run out of superlatives to thank Joel Alpert and his team
and just look forward to seeing the next 50 books go to print. Details of
where this book and the other 49 books now available can be seen at
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html

On a much sadder note, we learnt this week about the untimely passing of Ada
Holtzman z"l whose name you may be familiar with because it does widely
throughout the Yizkor Book Project. Over the years, Ada contributed numerous
translations and was ever willing to assist where she could in helping out
in the YB Project. She was above all, a true "mensch", and my saying that
she will be sorely missed is definitely an understatement.

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

We have added in three new books:

- Khomsk, Belarus (Scroll of Khomsk)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Khomsk/Khomsk.html

perished in the Nazi Holocaust)

Yizkor Books #YizkorBooks Yizkor Book Project, September 2016 #yizkorbooks

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

My monthly Yizkor Book report to you is in perfect timing to wish you all a
Shana Tova Umetuka or, in other words, a Sweet New Year!

This month I am extremely proud to announce the completion of two books. The
first is the Radzyn Podlaski, Poland Yizkor book which was translated by
Nachman, Temy and Yaakov Goldwasser and includes some additional
translations kindly donated through the auspices of Monica Westrick. The
completion of this book is a wonderful achievement and is the result of many
years of labor of love. The second book is the Radyvyliv, Ukraine Yizkor
book which was coordinated by Ron Doctor and Ellen Garshick. Ellen
coordinated the translation prepared by a dedicated band of translators and
all those involved in this project are definitely deserving of our grateful
appreciation for this successful end result.

Another contribution to the Yizkor Book Project over this past month was an
article kindly donated to us by Myrna Brodsky Siegel in which she describes
how she became involved in the translation of the Maychet (Molchadz) Yizkor
book. This book is yet another that has been completely translated and also
one that has been published by the Yizkor Books in Print Project. The
success of this project only came about because of Myrna's unending
dedication to seeing it through. For those of you involved in the
coordination or translation of a Yizkor book, this is a worthwhile read and
may be found at our Yizkor Book Insights page:
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybinsights.html

And in regards to the Yizkor Books in Print Project, this past month it
published, can you believe it, its 50th book: "Memorial Book of Goniadz
Poland". I have run out of superlatives to thank Joel Alpert and his team
and just look forward to seeing the next 50 books go to print. Details of
where this book and the other 49 books now available can be seen at
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html

On a much sadder note, we learnt this week about the untimely passing of Ada
Holtzman z"l whose name you may be familiar with because it does widely
throughout the Yizkor Book Project. Over the years, Ada contributed numerous
translations and was ever willing to assist where she could in helping out
in the YB Project. She was above all, a true "mensch", and my saying that
she will be sorely missed is definitely an understatement.

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

We have added in three new books:

- Khomsk, Belarus (Scroll of Khomsk)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Khomsk/Khomsk.html

Re: Lithuanian Business Records #lithuania

Ann Rabinowitz
 

The inquiry made by Sarah Fuerst brings up a number of questions about
her great grandfather and family that need to be answered before a proper
answer can be made.


Why do you think Rosenbloom is not his ancestral surname?

Were their other relatives that came to America?

Do you know his wife's maiden name and when and where they married?

Do you know his parent's names and did they come to America?

When did he come to America and do you have his manifest?

Why do you think he was >from Kretinga or Plunge?

Do you think he was a blacksmith in Lithuania? Is that the business
you are looking for? How do you know that he practiced that craft
in Lithuania?


Unless you know the answers to the above questions how will you know
what name is the correct original one in Lithuania when you find
records? It is easier to answer these questions and then look in
the LitvakSIG Kretinga and Plunge or District Records those cities are
located in for what you want. The JewishGen Yizkor Book site and other
areas might also mention someone in those towns who was, for instance,
a blacksmith.

The reason I say this is that I used these same questions to find
information on my grandfather whose ancestral name was BDIL and who
changed it to RABINOWITZ in America in the 1890's. I did not use
"business records".

To locate "business records", I am afraid you would have to hire a
Lithuanian researcher as for the most part nothing is online for
the period you are looking for.

There are probably notarial records in Lithuania for the time period
you are looking for as there were in Galicia/Poland. These would be
for business/private transactions. Marriage records often have the
occupation of the bridegroom. There might be information in government
gazettes, but that would be in Russian for the period you are looking
for. I have found Income Tax records for businesses and their employees
such as hospitals, but that was in the 1900's. Directories were usually
found in the 1900's too.

Good luck!
