Yizkor Book Project, September 2016 #poland

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

An old friend sightseeing in Holland sent me photos of a magnificent
LOWENSTEIN mansion in Groningen, The Netherlands.

My Internet search for information on that un-related Lowenstein
family took me to the beautiful website of Akevoth - Jewish
Genealogical research in the Netherlands.

http://www.dutchjewry.org/

The site is in English and is extremely rich in information and easy
to navigate. Akevoth is an IAJGS member society.

Ada Holtzman #general

Joyce Field
 

Ada Holtzman's death is a severe loss to Jewish genealogy. We have lost a
dedicated genealogist who shared all the results of her prodigious
research with the world in general and with JewishGen in particular. Many
projects would not be online if if were not for her efforts. Ada and I
collaborated on the Pinkas HaNitzolim project and against all odds got the
database online. I wonder if anyone can imagine how much work, time,
devotion, and dedication she put into this project. We took on the Jewish
Agency and managed to get approval >from the top echelons to get this
material online with the additional assistance of Yad Vashem. This is only
one example of her legacy to the world. See her Introductions to this
database at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Holocaust/0064_PinkasNitzolimI.html and
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Holocaust/0058_PinkasNitzolimII.html .

Ada and I became friends and spoke and wrote frequently. She scoured used
bookstores in Israel to find me a copy of the two-volume Pinkas
NaNitzolim, which today sits on a bookshelf next to my computer. Whenever
I look to my left, I see those books, and think of Ada, my dear friend. I
will miss her.

Belarus SIG #Belarus Yizkor Book Project, September 2016 #belarus

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)

Yizkor Book Project, September 2016 #galicia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

[MOD. NOTE: See especially the listings below for these Galician towns:
Gorlice, Nowy Sacz and Nowy Targ, Poland, and Ozerna, Ukraine.]

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

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
