Dear SIGgers,
If anyone has access to Weissensee records, I would like information
from burial cards for five members of my PHILIPSBORN family. Please
let me know privately if you can get this information and I'll provide
details. I'd like especially to know the names of the people who
submitted the information and the causes of death if possible.

Progress on Bessarabia Cemetery projects #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Dear Researchers,

You may see the list of Jewish cemeteries in Bessarabia/Moldova at the
Bessarabia SIG Website, Cemetery section:
www.jewishgen.org/Bessarabia/Cemetery.html

The JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry (JOWBR) has now index or/and
photos for 38 cemeteries in our region with total of more than 42,086
burials (records). The total number of cemeteries is 73.

Here is our progress for the last month:

We have completed in September indexing/photographing of two cemeteries:
*Leovo Jewish Cemetery, Moldova;
*Dubossary Jewish Cemetery, Moldova; Old Section.

Among 38 cemeteries there are several which are done by sections, like we
are still working on Beltsy, Rashkov cemeteries.


You can already find Cemetery reports >from these cemeteries and also list of
Unknown graves. The records with photos were sent to JOWBR and will be
available at the next JOWBR update.

Here is where we are with many other cemeteries:

-Ataki - the work started, but we need someone good in Hebrew who can help
translating inscriptions >from the photos.
- Bricheva - in progress, be done soon.
-Beltsy - next portion will be finished soon.
-Bessarabka - Old section - need someone with Hebrew to translate
inscriptions >from the photos.

-Lipkani - be completed in 2016. Finally we have a person who will start
working on the project.
-Rezina Old - in progress.
-Rybnitsa Old - the translation is in progress.
-Strasheni - photographed, but there are very few remaining graves.
-Belgorod-Dnestrovskiy (Akkerman), received donation of 115 photos, and more
will come soon, I hope.

-Faleshty - Old cemetery - in progress.
-Floreshty - in progress.
-Alexandreni - received some images.
- Kishinev Jewish Cemetery - the photos are coming very slowly. Promised to
have some sections done in November of this year.

There is a plan to go south part of Bessarabia, into towns of Artcyz,
Bolgrad, Bayramcha, Tatar Bunar, Reni (not sure if there is a cemetery...).
After that the next trip is going to be to several towns in Transnistria...

For all these new trips we need to collect donations!

As I pointed many times, the cemetery projects are very important and
urgent. The monuments disappear, the inscriptions became less readable as
we speak, most of the cemeteries do not have any caretakers. If we will not
at least preserve the tombstones in the photographs, in 20 years, there will
not much to see, visit and put stones on.

We need your donations to pay for photos.
We need your help in translation >from Russian and Hebrew.
We need your help in organizing a new cemetery project.
If you know about a cemetery, which is NOT on our list (see above the link),
please let us know about it.

If the cemetery you are interested was not yet photographed or/and indexed,
you can initiate a new project by collecting about 30% of the cost. Email me
if you are interested. If you would like to get a whole list of people
buried in a cemetery - for donation of $100 to Bessarabia-Moldova Cemetery
Project, we will send you the whole list when it is done , before the list
is available at JOWBR. If you find your relatives buried there, we will also
send you photos if available.

Let me know if you have any questions.

** About the Burton **
The Burton Historical Collection (BHC) of the Detroit Public Library
began as the private library of Clarence Monroe Burton. In addition to
being a prominent attorney, Mr. Burton was a Detroit historiographer
and the founder of the C. M. Burton Abstract Co. Mr. Burton's original
intention was to assemble a collection on the history of Detroit.
Realizing that Detroit's history was inextricably connected to that of
Michigan and the Old Northwest and those histories to that of Canada
and New France, he assembled a collection that was one of the most
important private historical collections in the country.

Over the course of 40 years, Mr. Burton systematically collected
original documents and personal papers of prominent citizens of
Detroit and Michigan. By 1914 the library contained 30,000 volumes,
40,000 pamphlets and 500,000 unpublished papers. Mr. Burton donated
his collection, including the building it was housed in, to the
Detroit Public Library in 1915. The collection was moved to the new
main library in 1921.

Assistant Director Romie Minor will give us a tour at 6PM, and time
after that can be used for individual research.

** About Romie Minor, Supervising Archivist **
Romie Minor is currently the Assistant Manager for the Special
Collections Department and the Curator of the E. Azalia Hackley
Collection of African-Americans in the Performing Arts at the Detroit
Public Library. He holds a B.A. in History, Master's Degree in Library
and Information Science and Graduate Certificate in Archival
Administration >from Wayne State University.

New Record Registers Now Available for Indexing by JRI-Poland at AGAD Archive #galicia

Mark Halpern
 

Dear Fellow Galitzianers:

JRI-Poland and Galician researchers have been waiting all year for vital
record registers to be transferred >from the Warsaw USC (civil records

Before providing the entire list, there are two surprises -- towns where
no records are now found in the JRI-Poland database. These are
Gwozdziec, where the register containing 1879-1915 marriages are
now available for indexing, and Sadowa Wisznia, where 1901-1905
births are now available for indexing.

Other records are:
Boryslaw 1914-1915 BMD
Bobrka 1900-1915 B
Drohobycz 1915 BMD
Jaryczow Nowy 1915 BD
Kamionka Strumilowa 1910-1915 M; 1908-1915 D

If you have any questions, please write me directly at

When you are researching your Galician roots, please be sure to

very little overlap.

Langsam from Lesko #galicia

Moishe Miller
 

Hi,

I am researching the family of Hirsch Langsam, wife Elka (Manaster) &
sons Mandel, Leib, Yitzchok, Avraham, Yosef & Yehoshua. The children
were born in the 1890's.

Most of the family perished in the Holocaust but Mandel did go to
Illinois (to his mother's brother) around 1921 and stayed in the USA.
Leib also came, in 1910, but no other detail is known about him. As he
is not in the Lesko yizkor book, he may have stayed somewhere in the
USA.

Hi,

I am researching the family of Hirsch Langsam, wife Elka (Manaster) &
sons Mandel, Leib, Yitzchok, Avraham, Yosef & Yehoshua. The children
were born in the 1890's.

Most of the family perished in the Holocaust but Mandel did go to
Illinois (to his mother's brother) around 1921 and stayed in the USA.
Leib also came, in 1910, but no other detail is known about him. As he
is not in the Lesko yizkor book, he may have stayed somewhere in the
USA.
