Yizkor Book Project, July 2016 #danzig #gdansk #germany #poland

Shalom,

The Yizkor Book Project in July was characterized by a great deal of updates
as you will see below. It is always encouraging to see the projects make
progress - step by step - till the final goal is reached and the complete
Yizkor book is translated. This amazing progress is due to the untiring
determination of the coordinators leading these projects and they certainly
deserve our salute for all that they do.

In the individual Yizkor book projects, the blue links appearing in the
table of contents of each project lead to the articles that have been
translated. I'm quite often asked about why articles that don't have blue
links can't be read and if a paid subscription is required to see the
"hidden" articles. No, there is no charge for reading the articles that have
been translated and, on the contrary, and our basic aim is to allow free,
global access to everyone for the translated Yizkor book material. So if the
article isn't available and you are interested in reading it, the next
logical step would be to assist with financial support in the translation of
the article. For this it is worthwhile looking at and donating to the
specific Translations Fund project if it is listed on the JewishGen-erosity
page (link at the end) or by contacting myself so that I can provide you
with an estimate of the cost of translation and you can decide if it's
something you are able to take on.

For those of you who would like to know more about the Yizkor Book Project
and will be at the upcoming IAJGS Conference in Seattle, I warmly recommend
you taking part in our Yizkor Book Birds of a Feather meeting. This year it
is being led by Max Heffler who is and has been an integral partner in our
Yizkor Book team and has a great deal of knowledge and experience regarding
the project.

For those of you who are going to the conference, I do wish you an excellent
and rewarding time whilst you're there.

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

We have also added in one new entry:

- Berestechko, Ukraine (There was a town...memorial book of Beresteczko,
Boremel and vicinity)

Internet Archive Russian Language Resources #general

Joel Ratner
 

1407 books have been put up on the Internet Archive which pertain to
Russia. Although many of these resources are available on other sites,
access via the Internet Archive is fast and the concerns over virus
laden Russian websites where some originated is nil.

The books you will find include the following:

The Memorial Books of Vilna Province
The Memorial Books of Kovno Province
The Memorial Books of Suwalki Province
The Memorial Books of Grodno Province
The Memorial Books of Mogilev Province
The Memorial Books of Vitebsk Province
The Memorial Books of Minsk Province
The Memorial Books of Livonia Province
The Memorial Books of Kiev Province
The Memorial Books of Radom Province
The Memorial Books of Lublin Province
The Memorial Books of Lomzha Province
The Memorial Books of Kielce Province
The Memorial Books of Kalisz Province
The Memorial Books of the Plock Province
The Memorial Books of Warsaw Province
The Memorial Books of Siedlce Province
Vilna Provincial Gazette
Russian WWI Casualties
Russian Medical Lists
Real Estate Liens in the Russian Empire Since 1825
Saint Petersburg Merchants Lists
Moscow Merchants Lists
Statistics of the 1897 All Russia Census

In process of being uploaded this weekend (already in progress) are
455 volumes as follows:

Certificates of Conviction -- 455 volumes 1870 - 1929

The certificates of conviction collection is nowhere near complete
however, the data presented may still be of interest. Among the 455
volumes, there are some index volumes which only state the names of
those convicted of infractions. Most volumes contain detailed
information, albeit with the use of many abbreviations. The
information in the detailed records generally follows this pattern:

Surname, Given Nane, Patronymic
Place of birth
Year of birth
Age
Description of Infraction
Sentence
Date of sentence/jailterm

There are approximately 12 volumes for each year. Records are sorted
in alphabetical order by surname regardless of location within the
Empire. This makes searching for names "genealogically friendly".
Excluding the volumes containing only indexes of names, a count of
the names yields just over 3.5 million names. A quick check of several
hundred names in one volume containing surnames beginning with the
letter "A" yielded approximately 5% Jewish names. A similar check
later in the alphabet, say, using surnames beginning with P, R, or S,
might have a larger number of Jewish records (not necessarily by
percentage).

The 455 volumes of Certificates of Conviction are in the process of
being uploaded. I expect the upload to complete by this Sunday 8/7.
In the meantime, one should be able to view those volumes already
uploaded (over 240 volumes). An index to some of the abbreviations
used will be made available at a later date as well as a detailed
listing of the record year and volume number against the Russian
library book number.

All the resources mentioned above, including the Certificates of
Conviction collection, may be accessed at the Internet Archive at
https://archive.org . Search for the term "joelrat1" which will take
you to these books mentioned at the top of this posting.

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on JewishGen's Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

This week's selection is >from the Yizkor book of Sierpc, a town in
Poland about 77 miles northwest of Warsaw and 23 miles north of Plock.
In 1897, when it was still part of the Russian Empire, it had just under
3,000 Jews. This excerpt, "A Pious Jew >from the Older Generation,"
(http://bit.ly/2amG3Pb) is a remarkable story of a couple who lost their
own child and then took the child of a poor fisherman widow into their
household. The account, written by Elisheva Rabinowich, based on her
grandfather's memoirs, takes a surprising turn and has a sad and stern
ending dictated by the pious old Jew's strong beliefs.

Yizkor Book Project, July 2016 #france

Shalom,

The Yizkor Book Project in July was characterized by a great deal of updates
as you will see below. It is always encouraging to see the projects make
progress - step by step - till the final goal is reached and the complete
Yizkor book is translated. This amazing progress is due to the untiring
determination of the coordinators leading these projects and they certainly
deserve our salute for all that they do.

In the individual Yizkor book projects, the blue links appearing in the
table of contents of each project lead to the articles that have been
translated. I'm quite often asked about why articles that don't have blue
links can't be read and if a paid subscription is required to see the
"hidden" articles. No, there is no charge for reading the articles that have
been translated and, on the contrary, and our basic aim is to allow free,
global access to everyone for the translated Yizkor book material. So if the
article isn't available and you are interested in reading it, the next
logical step would be to assist with financial support in the translation of
the article. For this it is worthwhile looking at and donating to the
specific Translations Fund project if it is listed on the JewishGen-erosity
page (link at the end) or by contacting myself so that I can provide you
with an estimate of the cost of translation and you can decide if it's
something you are able to take on.

For those of you who would like to know more about the Yizkor Book Project
and will be at the upcoming IAJGS Conference in Seattle, I warmly recommend
you taking part in our Yizkor Book Birds of a Feather meeting. This year it
is being led by Max Heffler who is and has been an integral partner in our
Yizkor Book team and has a great deal of knowledge and experience regarding
the project.

For those of you who are going to the conference, I do wish you an excellent
and rewarding time whilst you're there.

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

French SIG #France Yizkor Book Project, July 2016 #france

Shalom,

The Yizkor Book Project in July was characterized by a great deal of updates
as you will see below. It is always encouraging to see the projects make
progress - step by step - till the final goal is reached and the complete
Yizkor book is translated. This amazing progress is due to the untiring
determination of the coordinators leading these projects and they certainly
deserve our salute for all that they do.

In the individual Yizkor book projects, the blue links appearing in the
table of contents of each project lead to the articles that have been
translated. I'm quite often asked about why articles that don't have blue
links can't be read and if a paid subscription is required to see the
"hidden" articles. No, there is no charge for reading the articles that have
been translated and, on the contrary, and our basic aim is to allow free,
global access to everyone for the translated Yizkor book material. So if the
article isn't available and you are interested in reading it, the next
logical step would be to assist with financial support in the translation of
the article. For this it is worthwhile looking at and donating to the
specific Translations Fund project if it is listed on the JewishGen-erosity
page (link at the end) or by contacting myself so that I can provide you
with an estimate of the cost of translation and you can decide if it's
something you are able to take on.

For those of you who would like to know more about the Yizkor Book Project
and will be at the upcoming IAJGS Conference in Seattle, I warmly recommend
you taking part in our Yizkor Book Birds of a Feather meeting. This year it
is being led by Max Heffler who is and has been an integral partner in our
Yizkor Book team and has a great deal of knowledge and experience regarding
the project.

For those of you who are going to the conference, I do wish you an excellent
and rewarding time whilst you're there.

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

We have also added in one new entry:u

Boremel and vicinity)

In the individual Yizkor book projects, the blue links appearing in the
table of contents of each project lead to the articles that have been
translated. I'm quite often asked about why articles that don't have blue
links can't be read and if a paid subscription is required to see the
"hidden" articles. No, there is no charge for reading the articles that have
been translated and, on the contrary, and our basic aim is to allow free,
global access to everyone for the translated Yizkor book material. So if the
article isn't available and you are interested in reading it, the next
logical step would be to assist with financial support in the translation of
the article. For this it is worthwhile looking at and donating to the
specific Translations Fund project if it is listed on the JewishGen-erosity
page (link at the end) or by contacting myself so that I can provide you
with an estimate of the cost of translation and you can decide if it's
something you are able to take on.

For those of you who would like to know more about the Yizkor Book Project
and will be at the upcoming IAJGS Conference in Seattle, I warmly recommend
you taking part in our Yizkor Book Birds of a Feather meeting. This year it
is being led by Max Heffler who is and has been an integral partner in our
Yizkor Book team and has a great deal of knowledge and experience regarding
the project.

For those of you who are going to the conference, I do wish you an excellent
and rewarding time whilst you're there.

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

Yizkor Book Project, July 2016 #southafrica

Shalom,

The Yizkor Book Project in July was characterized by a great deal of updates
as you will see below. It is always encouraging to see the projects make
progress - step by step - till the final goal is reached and the complete
Yizkor book is translated. This amazing progress is due to the untiring
determination of the coordinators leading these projects and they certainly
deserve our salute for all that they do.

In the individual Yizkor book projects, the blue links appearing in the
table of contents of each project lead to the articles that have been
translated. I'm quite often asked about why articles that don't have blue
links can't be read and if a paid subscription is required to see the
"hidden" articles. No, there is no charge for reading the articles that have
been translated and, on the contrary, and our basic aim is to allow free,
global access to everyone for the translated Yizkor book material. So if the
article isn't available and you are interested in reading it, the next
logical step would be to assist with financial support in the translation of
