Yizkor Book Project, July 2016 #ukraine

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

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:

Boremel and vicinity)

Yizkor Book Project, July 2016 #southafrica

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

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.

Courland SIG #Courland #Latvia Yizkor Book Project, July 2016 #courland #latvia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

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)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Berestechko/Berestechkoh.html [Hebrew]

Mount Carmel Cemetery, Glendale, NY #general

Jeremy Schuman
 

Is anyone planning to visit the Mount Carmel Cemetery, Glendale, Queens,
NY in the near future?

If so, I would be very grateful if they could photograph my great-uncle
Philip SUVAL's gravestone for me. I am very keen to know what his Hebrew
name was, as there is conflicting information >from other sources. Details
of the burial location are as follows:

Section: 2
Block: 1
Map: 3
Lot: 47E
Grave: 2
Society: Beth Emeth of Flatbush

Many thanks,

Jeremy Schuman,

How America's Immigration Has Changed: Pew Research Study #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Curious where your immigrant ancestors lived once they arrived in the United
States? The Pew Research Study recently released a study comparing where
each state's largest immigration population was born 1850 to 2013 (with maps
showing the changes by decade within that range of years):

The US is the top worldwide destination for those moving >from one country to
another with 50 million immigrants having arrived in the United States since
1965. Last century the immigrants predominately hailed >from Europe, and
Germany dominated >from 1890-1919. However, at that time, after Germany, the
largest share of immigrants came >from Russia.

Congress passed legislation in 1965 opening the nation's borders and since
then the largest number of immigrants come >from Latin America and Asia. In
2013 five times as many are >from Mexico than China-but where they live
varies by state.
