Yizkor Book Project, August 2016 #yizkorbooks

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

You may or may not be aware, during IAJGS conference in Seattle in August
2016, the JewishGen Yizkor Book Project received the Outstanding Project
Award! This was more than wonderful news and a wide recognition of our
combined achievements in the YB Project. As such, I would like all of you
who have been involved in the Yizkor Book Project in some way or another to
now give yourself a very hearty pat on the back - you certainly do deserve
it and your efforts are greatly appreciated!

So as not to disappoint and endeavor to maintain our project in its
"outstanding" status, during August, we continued to add on and update the
translations available online. There are a number of books that are just a
hairsbreadth distance >from being fully translated and online and do hope to
be able to inform you about the completed projects in my next report, in
perfect timing for Rosh Hashana (New Year).

At the same time, other aspects of the Yizkor Book Project continue to make
headway and pleased to let you know that two books have recently been
published by the "never-standing-still" Yizkor Books in Print Project. The
books are:

- "Remembering Dvinsk" which covers the Jewish community of Daugavpils,
Latvia.
- "Trilogy of Three Romanian Jewish Communities: Bacau, Iasi and Podu
Iloaiei" which is due to be made available within the nearest future.

As always, I salute Joel Alpert and his team who have made nearly 50 books
available since the instigation of this project in April 2011 - an amazing
achievement by any standards.

Still, as I regularly point out to reach a point where you have a fully
translated Yizkor book in hand does require time, patience and, in
particular, quite substantial financial support. Our recommendation to raise
money and pay for the professional translation of a Yizkor book is to set up
a JewishGen Translations Fund into which people interested in seeing their
community book translated, can donate towards this lofty goal. It should be
noted that donations to these funds are tax-exempt for US citizens - a
further important consideration. Just this past month, a number of such
funds have been set up and translation begun and others are presently in the
process of being setup and will join our 70 odd Translations Funds. So if
you are interested in seeing a particular book translated via a Translations
Fund, please contact me and I will explain how it is possible to go forward
with such a project.

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

We have added in one new book:

- Vilnius, Lithuania (Scroll of Vilnius)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Vilnius/Vilnius.html

How to Read an Amsterdam Synagogue Membership Record? #sephardic

DARAncestry <darancestry@...>
 

Hello everyone,

I am an armchair genealogist and recently discovered that my 4th great
grandparents >from Puerto Rico were born Jewish. My 4th great
grandfather, Juan de Lima, also known as Abraham de Isaac Aletrino y
Lima, was born in Amsterdam in 1802. My 4th great grandmother Ruperta
Lobato, also known as Ribca de Isaac Cohen Lobato y Saruco, was born
in Suriname in 1806. They were married in synagogue in Paramaribo,
Suriname in 1827.

I have been tracking the family lines backwards to Amsterdam, and many
ancestors were members of the Portuguese Jewish synagogue in
Amsterdam. I found the member register for the synagogue on
Familysearch.org here:

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QS7-8994-C9HW?i=517&cat=256540

I wondered if you might understand how the membership records work?
The relevant record is the one on the bottom right which reads as follows:

"No. 54. David de Lima p elle seu f° Jahacob de Lima A° 5422 p elle
Selomoh de Lima A° 5484 - David de Selomoh de Lima a° 5522, p elle
Jeudit de Simson de Lima mulher de Jb de Ik Ferares A° 5628 . . . ."

I was not sure what "p elle" means. Perhaps that the latter family
member is nominated for membership by the former family member? I
know that "seu f°" means "his son". I assume that "A°" means admitido
or admitted. I understand the references to the dates.

Does the synagogue membership transfer >from Father to Son/Daughter?

Thank you in advance for your thoughts.

Kind regards, David Rivera

Yizkor Book Project, August 2016 #sephardic

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

You may or may not be aware, during IAJGS conference in Seattle in August
2016, the JewishGen Yizkor Book Project received the Outstanding Project
Award! This was more than wonderful news and a wide recognition of our
combined achievements in the YB Project. As such, I would like all of you
who have been involved in the Yizkor Book Project in some way or another to
now give yourself a very hearty pat on the back - you certainly do deserve
it and your efforts are greatly appreciated!

So as not to disappoint and endeavor to maintain our project in its
"outstanding" status, during August, we continued to add on and update the
translations available online. There are a number of books that are just a
hairsbreadth distance >from being fully translated and online and do hope to
be able to inform you about the completed projects in my next report, in
perfect timing for Rosh Hashana (New Year).

At the same time, other aspects of the Yizkor Book Project continue to make
headway and pleased to let you know that two books have recently been
published by the "never-standing-still" Yizkor Books in Print Project. The
books are:

- "Remembering Dvinsk" which covers the Jewish community of Daugavpils,
Latvia.
- "Trilogy of Three Romanian Jewish Communities: Bacau, Iasi and Podu
Iloaiei" which is due to be made available within the nearest future.

As always, I salute Joel Alpert and his team who have made nearly 50 books
available since the instigation of this project in April 2011 - an amazing
achievement by any standards.

Still, as I regularly point out to reach a point where you have a fully
translated Yizkor book in hand does require time, patience and, in
particular, quite substantial financial support. Our recommendation to raise
money and pay for the professional translation of a Yizkor book is to set up
a JewishGen Translations Fund into which people interested in seeing their
community book translated, can donate towards this lofty goal. It should be
noted that donations to these funds are tax-exempt for US citizens - a
further important consideration. Just this past month, a number of such
funds have been set up and translation begun and others are presently in the
process of being setup and will join our 70 odd Translations Funds. So if
you are interested in seeing a particular book translated via a Translations
Fund, please contact me and I will explain how it is possible to go forward
with such a project.

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

We have added in one new book:

- Vilnius, Lithuania (Scroll of Vilnius)

Scandinavia SIG #Scandinavia Yizkor Book Project, August 2016 #scandinavia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

You may or may not be aware, during IAJGS conference in Seattle in August
2016, the JewishGen Yizkor Book Project received the Outstanding Project
Award! This was more than wonderful news and a wide recognition of our
combined achievements in the YB Project. As such, I would like all of you
who have been involved in the Yizkor Book Project in some way or another to
now give yourself a very hearty pat on the back - you certainly do deserve
it and your efforts are greatly appreciated!

So as not to disappoint and endeavor to maintain our project in its
"outstanding" status, during August, we continued to add on and update the
translations available online. There are a number of books that are just a
hairsbreadth distance >from being fully translated and online and do hope to
be able to inform you about the completed projects in my next report, in
perfect timing for Rosh Hashana (New Year).

At the same time, other aspects of the Yizkor Book Project continue to make
headway and pleased to let you know that two books have recently been
published by the "never-standing-still" Yizkor Books in Print Project. The
books are:

- "Remembering Dvinsk" which covers the Jewish community of Daugavpils,
Latvia.
- "Trilogy of Three Romanian Jewish Communities: Bacau, Iasi and Podu
Iloaiei" which is due to be made available within the nearest future.

As always, I salute Joel Alpert and his team who have made nearly 50 books
available since the instigation of this project in April 2011 - an amazing
achievement by any standards.

Still, as I regularly point out to reach a point where you have a fully
translated Yizkor book in hand does require time, patience and, in
particular, quite substantial financial support. Our recommendation to raise
money and pay for the professional translation of a Yizkor book is to set up
a JewishGen Translations Fund into which people interested in seeing their
community book translated, can donate towards this lofty goal. It should be
noted that donations to these funds are tax-exempt for US citizens - a
further important consideration. Just this past month, a number of such
funds have been set up and translation begun and others are presently in the
process of being setup and will join our 70 odd Translations Funds. So if
you are interested in seeing a particular book translated via a Translations
Fund, please contact me and I will explain how it is possible to go forward
with such a project.

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

We have added in one new book:

- Vilnius, Lithuania (Scroll of Vilnius)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Vilnius/Vilnius.html

Re: X-Match help #dna

sbloom@...
 

Alison-

from what you've written, it could be that Stuart and Beth *only*
relate along the line of Stuart's paternal grandmother's maternal
line (x match).

It depends on which lines precisely the common surnames belong to, and
whether or not the surname match is coincidental (it happens often
enough, even when dealing with the same small town of origin). More
than one line of relatedness *could be possible*, but isn't demanded
by the information you've given.

Since one way (but necessarily all the ways) Stuart and Tim relate are
through the direct maternal line (for both of them), then, yes, at least
partially, Tom and Stuart relate in a different way than Stuart and Beth.
They could partly be related in the same way though, or at least partly
similar ancestry.

---
Tim, Stuart, and Beth all show as 3rd to 5th cousins to each other.

Stuart and Beth share two surnames (Stuart's male line) in common, as
well as the Ukraine for place of origin. Beth is an x-match to
Stuart's paternal grandmother, but not an x-match to Stuart. So is
she related to Stuart in more than one way?

Tim is an x-match to Stuart but not to Stuart's paternal grandmother.
So is Tim related to Stuart differently than Beth is? Or since she
might be related to Stuart in more than one way, Tim could be related
to Beth in one of the ways?

The chromosome browser shows Tim and Stuart overlapping, and Beth and
Stuart overlapping, with a few very small overlaps between all three.

Thank you,

through the direct maternal line (for both of them), then, yes, at least
partially, Tom and Stuart relate in a different way than Stuart and Beth.
They could partly be related in the same way though, or at least partly
similar ancestry.

---
Tim, Stuart, and Beth all show as 3rd to 5th cousins to each other.

Stuart and Beth share two surnames (Stuart's male line) in common, as
well as the Ukraine for place of origin. Beth is an x-match to
Stuart's paternal grandmother, but not an x-match to Stuart. So is
she related to Stuart in more than one way?

Tim is an x-match to Stuart but not to Stuart's paternal grandmother.
So is Tim related to Stuart differently than Beth is? Or since she
might be related to Stuart in more than one way, Tim could be related
to Beth in one of the ways?

The chromosome browser shows Tim and Stuart overlapping, and Beth and
Stuart overlapping, with a few very small overlaps between all three.

Shalom,

You may or may not be aware, during IAJGS conference in Seattle in August
2016, the JewishGen Yizkor Book Project received the Outstanding Project
Award! This was more than wonderful news and a wide recognition of our
combined achievements in the YB Project. As such, I would like all of you
who have been involved in the Yizkor Book Project in some way or another to
now give yourself a very hearty pat on the back - you certainly do deserve
it and your efforts are greatly appreciated!

So as not to disappoint and endeavor to maintain our project in its
"outstanding" status, during August, we continued to add on and update the
translations available online. There are a number of books that are just a
hairsbreadth distance >from being fully translated and online and do hope to
be able to inform you about the completed projects in my next report, in
perfect timing for Rosh Hashana (New Year).

At the same time, other aspects of the Yizkor Book Project continue to make
headway and pleased to let you know that two books have recently been
published by the "never-standing-still" Yizkor Books in Print Project. The
books are:

- "Remembering Dvinsk" which covers the Jewish community of Daugavpils,
Latvia.
- "Trilogy of Three Romanian Jewish Communities: Bacau, Iasi and Podu
Iloaiei" which is due to be made available within the nearest future.

As always, I salute Joel Alpert and his team who have made nearly 50 books
available since the instigation of this project in April 2011 - an amazing
achievement by any standards.

Still, as I regularly point out to reach a point where you have a fully
translated Yizkor book in hand does require time, patience and, in
particular, quite substantial financial support. Our recommendation to raise
money and pay for the professional translation of a Yizkor book is to set up
a JewishGen Translations Fund into which people interested in seeing their
community book translated, can donate towards this lofty goal. It should be
noted that donations to these funds are tax-exempt for US citizens - a
further important consideration. Just this past month, a number of such
funds have been set up and translation begun and others are presently in the
process of being setup and will join our 70 odd Translations Funds. So if
you are interested in seeing a particular book translated via a Translations
Fund, please contact me and I will explain how it is possible to go forward
with such a project.

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

We have added in one new book:

- Vilnius, Lithuania (Scroll of Vilnius)

Yizkor Book Project, August 2016 #southafrica

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

You may or may not be aware, during IAJGS conference in Seattle in August
2016, the JewishGen Yizkor Book Project received the Outstanding Project
Award! This was more than wonderful news and a wide recognition of our
combined achievements in the YB Project. As such, I would like all of you
who have been involved in the Yizkor Book Project in some way or another to
now give yourself a very hearty pat on the back - you certainly do deserve
it and your efforts are greatly appreciated!

So as not to disappoint and endeavor to maintain our project in its
"outstanding" status, during August, we continued to add on and update the
translations available online. There are a number of books that are just a
hairsbreadth distance >from being fully translated and online and do hope to
be able to inform you about the completed projects in my next report, in
perfect timing for Rosh Hashana (New Year).

At the same time, other aspects of the Yizkor Book Project continue to make
headway and pleased to let you know that two books have recently been
published by the "never-standing-still" Yizkor Books in Print Project. The
books are:

- "Remembering Dvinsk" which covers the Jewish community of Daugavpils,
Latvia.
- "Trilogy of Three Romanian Jewish Communities: Bacau, Iasi and Podu
Iloaiei" which is due to be made available within the nearest future.

As always, I salute Joel Alpert and his team who have made nearly 50 books
available since the instigation of this project in April 2011 - an amazing
achievement by any standards.

Still, as I regularly point out to reach a point where you have a fully
translated Yizkor book in hand does require time, patience and, in
particular, quite substantial financial support. Our recommendation to raise
money and pay for the professional translation of a Yizkor book is to set up
a JewishGen Translations Fund into which people interested in seeing their
community book translated, can donate towards this lofty goal. It should be
noted that donations to these funds are tax-exempt for US citizens - a
further important consideration. Just this past month, a number of such
funds have been set up and translation begun and others are presently in the
process of being setup and will join our 70 odd Translations Funds. So if
you are interested in seeing a particular book translated via a Translations
Fund, please contact me and I will explain how it is possible to go forward
with such a project.

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

We have added in one new book:

- Vilnius, Lithuania (Scroll of Vilnius)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Vilnius/Vilnius.html

We have also added in two new entries:

- Artsyz, Ukraine (Akkerman and the towns of its district; memorial book)
