Nagy Kapos #hungary

Hello Joel,

I believe the 1869 census is available online at by FamilySearch.

My area of interest in Slovakia is Saros county and everything was
scanned and av available online, >from BMD records to the 1869 census. As
an example, see:

My grandfather, Benjamin Samuel Weber (sometimes known as Bert Weber)
arrived in the Scranton, PA area around 1900 as did nine of his
siblings. His parents were Nehemiah and Esther Weber nee Friedman. He
told some relatives that he came >from Nagy Kapos (now Velky Kapusany in
Slovakia) and on some U.S. documents he listed his birthplace as Ungvar
(now Uzhhorod) which is 11 miles to the east and now in the Ukraine. I
do not know if his ancestors resided in Nagy Kapos or elsewhere, but I
have recently learned >from another JewishGen researcher the in 1820
Reisel Weber, daughter of Joseph and Leah Weber married Rabbi Lazar
Samovicz in Nagy Kapos.

According to the Velky Kapusany chapter >from The Encyclopedia of Jewish
Communities, Slovakia there were 34 Jews in the community during 1828,
81 in 1840 and 268 in 1869. Is there a reasonably straightforward way of
getting a list of the names of the 268 Jews listed in the 1869 census?

Jewish Rural Life in Hesse - SITE CITE #germany

John Paul Lowens <jplowens@...>
 

Address any comments to: Carola Murray-Seegert <cmseegert@icloud.com>

I was interested to read Stephen Denker's post of November 8th, reminding
readers that these days mark the anniversary of Kristallnacht and describing
his new book about the events in the countryside of Hessen. I am an American,
married to a German, and I live in a village near Frankfurt in the state of
Hesse, about 20 minutes drive >from the Hessenpark, the open-air museum that
houses the reconstructed synagogue Stephen describes.

JewishGen members might be interested to know that the Hessenpark opened
a new exhibit in May 2016 called:

"Sie Waren Hier : Juedisches Landleben in Suedhessen"
(They Were Here : Jewish Rural Life in Southern Hesse).

The new exhibit, created in cooperation with the Jewish Museum of Frankfurt,
is housed in the former synagogue >from Gross-Umstadt - the second of two
synagogues reconstructed in the park.

The state of Hessen is unusual for Germany in that an exceptionally
large percentage of Jews lived outside the large cities.

The new exhibit is extensive, containing detailed biographies of
Jewish families >from Oberursel, Gross-Umstadt,
Michelstadt and Fraenkisch-Crumbach, as well as many original documents
addressing broader themes, such as professional life, social integration
and the need for highly-mobile matchmakers (given that the pool of
potential spouses was so widely dispersed).

Unfortunately, the exhibit is very text-dense and - surprisingly
(considering the fact that the Hessenpark often publishes materials in
English) - everything is in German. Still, for anyone connected to a Jewish
family that lived in rural Hessen, it would be worth a visit.

[ Oberursel - 50 012' N 8 035' E 11.7 KM Northwest of Frankfurt a/M ]
[ Michelstadt-49 40' N 9 000' E 54.3 KM South southeast of Frankfurt ]

with photos of the Gross-Umstadt synagogue

Yizkor Book Project, October 2016 #latinamerica

bounce-3230895-772964@...
 

Shalom,

Where do I begin? So much has happened of late. Firstly, I am pleased to
inform you that over October we completed uploading translations >from no
less than five books and they are:

Two books that were prepared by William Liebner and kindly donated to the YB
Project - "Blood Stained Feathers; The Life Story of a Shoah Survivor"
(Nowy Sacz, Poland) and the Zabrze Yizkor Book (Zabrze, Poland)
"The Memorial book: the Ritavas Community; A Tribute to the Memory of our
Town" (Rietavas, Lithuania), permission for which was gratefully received
from Romi Kaplan of the Kaplan-Kushlick Foundation in Capetown.
"Our Shtetl; Vysotsk memorial book" (Vysotsk, Ukraine) which was translated
by Kevin Allen and we do thank he and Sara Allen for this important
contribution to our site.
"Our town, Neishtot" (Zemaiciu Naumiestis, Lithuania) which was translated
and gratefully donated to the YB book by Dr. Benjamin Lesin.

The YB Project now has 123 books fully online and in the coming months, I
foresee further books achieving the completely online status. Some projects,
however, are just at their outset and this past month, a new Translations
Fund was setup for the Zbarazh, Ukraine Yizkor with a view to funding the
translation of this book. We now have over 80 of the Yizkor Book Translation
Funds that have been setup to enable people to financially support the
professional translation of the community books. Please see link to this
list at the end of this report to the list of funds.

Another milestone this past month was the publishing of two more books (now
52 all in all) by the Yizkor Books in Print Project:

"Radzyn Memorial Book" (Radzyn Podlaski, Poland)
"The Unlikely Hero of Sobrance" (Sobrance, Slovakia)

Joel Alpert and team continue to work tirelessly to make these books
available for the benefit of many. Details of the books now available can be
found via the link appearing at the end of this report.

Finally, we added in a number of entries >from the Yad Vashem "Pinkasim"
series (Encyclopedias of Jewish Communities) including quite a few
translations about Latvia communities which were provided by the Latvia SIG
and we do appreciate these very welcome additions to our project. The
"Pinkas" series provides unique information on so many communities that
don't have their own Yizkor book. Although we do have a large number of
translations of community entries >from these volumes available in the YB
site, we are always on the lookout to continue this endeavor.

If you would like to know more about the "Pinkasim" series, the Yizkor Book
Project in general, or would like to become involved in our project, I would
definitely like to hear >from you.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried out
in the Yizkor Book Project over October.

We have added in two new books:

דוד נ.א.

Thank you

Latin America #LatinAmerica Yizkor Book Project, October 2016 #latinamerica

bounce-3230895-772964@...
 

Shalom,

Where do I begin? So much has happened of late. Firstly, I am pleased to
inform you that over October we completed uploading translations >from no
less than five books and they are:

Two books that were prepared by William Liebner and kindly donated to the YB
Project - "Blood Stained Feathers; The Life Story of a Shoah Survivor"
(Nowy Sacz, Poland) and the Zabrze Yizkor Book (Zabrze, Poland)
"The Memorial book: the Ritavas Community; A Tribute to the Memory of our
Town" (Rietavas, Lithuania), permission for which was gratefully received
from Romi Kaplan of the Kaplan-Kushlick Foundation in Capetown.
"Our Shtetl; Vysotsk memorial book" (Vysotsk, Ukraine) which was translated
by Kevin Allen and we do thank he and Sara Allen for this important
contribution to our site.
"Our town, Neishtot" (Zemaiciu Naumiestis, Lithuania) which was translated
and gratefully donated to the YB book by Dr. Benjamin Lesin.

The YB Project now has 123 books fully online and in the coming months, I
foresee further books achieving the completely online status. Some projects,
however, are just at their outset and this past month, a new Translations
Fund was setup for the Zbarazh, Ukraine Yizkor with a view to funding the
translation of this book. We now have over 80 of the Yizkor Book Translation
Funds that have been setup to enable people to financially support the
professional translation of the community books. Please see link to this
list at the end of this report to the list of funds.

Another milestone this past month was the publishing of two more books (now
52 all in all) by the Yizkor Books in Print Project:

"Radzyn Memorial Book" (Radzyn Podlaski, Poland)
"The Unlikely Hero of Sobrance" (Sobrance, Slovakia)

Joel Alpert and team continue to work tirelessly to make these books
available for the benefit of many. Details of the books now available can be
found via the link appearing at the end of this report.

Finally, we added in a number of entries >from the Yad Vashem "Pinkasim"
series (Encyclopedias of Jewish Communities) including quite a few
translations about Latvia communities which were provided by the Latvia SIG
and we do appreciate these very welcome additions to our project. The
"Pinkas" series provides unique information on so many communities that
don't have their own Yizkor book. Although we do have a large number of
translations of community entries >from these volumes available in the YB
site, we are always on the lookout to continue this endeavor.

If you would like to know more about the "Pinkasim" series, the Yizkor Book
Project in general, or would like to become involved in our project, I would
definitely like to hear >from you.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried out
