Yizkor Book Project, August 2016 #belarus

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

Leipner (Liepner) in South Africa #general

Desiree Bean <desiree@...>
 

Good day
I am trying to do research on the above mentioned family of my
ex-husband for the sake of ancestry for my children.

The only info I have is that my children's grandfather was Henry Alfonso
Liepner who was married to Mavis (got divorced), she was a methodist and
wouldn't convert.

Henry's father was Nicholas Liepner a tailor in Johannesburg and a
member of the Rand Pioneers. Not sure if he still followed the Jewish
faith either.

We have heard conflicting stories that he had a different surname (some
crazy idea), but changed it to Liepner as he worked for a tailor in
Germany named Liepner and as his previous surname was so hard to pronounce
he was battling to get clients. I personally think this is far fetched but
I may be wrong.

I think his establishment was in Jeppe street (not 100% sure).

I have info of a grave in Durban with the name Nicholas but not sure if
this is him.

I have also seen a vault for a Liepner family at Stellewood Cemetery, in
Durban when I was still living in South Africa . Not sure if these were
relatives of Nicholas Liepner.

Any help would be most appreciated.

Best regards
Desiree Bean

Some of the recent postings have been about the grim side of the story the
Yizkor books tell, so for this week, a little something different.
This excerpt (http://bit.ly/2byXQaD) is >from the Yizkor book of Brzezin
(or Brzeziny) in Poland, about 13 miles east of Lodz and about 70 miles
west of Warsaw. The Jewish population numbered almost 4,000 in 1897 when
it was still part of Russia. This chapter by Abe Rosenberg describes
another slice of shtetl life: how Jewish sports came to Brzezin.

Breaking through a brick wall. #ukraine

lubarsky@...
 

My grandparents Wolf (later William) and Esther (nee Finkle) Lubarsky and two of their children came to the US in 1906 >from Odessa. There is a record of a Wolf-Chaim Markusovich Lubarskiy living in Odessa which may very well be him. In Hebrew his name was Chaim Ze'ev. His father was Moshe Tzvi which seems to go with a Moise Yankelovich Luybarsky who was living in Odessa at the same time. However there doesn't seem to be any trace of his family; his wife, his daughter Chaike, or his son Joseph. They lived in Odessa for at least five years, but they were not originally >from Odessa. My grandfather's birthplace is given variously as Bircza on his ship ticket, and 'Bushitz Ukraine' on his naturalization papers, while my grandmother gives 'Deditchoff', Russia as her birthplace. With the government paperwork mangling their birthplaces I don't know where to look further.

I suggest that the town name might be Volodarka, also spelled as

(Wikipedia), (ii) Koritno, Vag-Ujhely, Nyitra. (JewishGen Hungary
Database), or (iii) somewhere else? Are all of these the same place?
And most importantly, where should I look for records on these people.

I would be very grateful for any information you could offer on the
family, the town, and/or the records.

Isidor Gross from Brazil. #latinamerica

Amy B Cohen
 

Hello, I am hoping someone can help me locate information about my
distant cousin Isidor GROSS. He was born in Bingen, Germany in
September, 1873, and he immigrated to Brazil in about 1938. One
unsourced tree on Ancestry says he died in Petropolis, but provides no
date of death.

His wife was Klara Emrich, and they had a son Hans Bernard Gross, who
was born in Bingen in 1903 and, according to the same tree, died in
Rio de Janeiro in 1979. (He was a first cousin to Bernhard Gross, the
well-known physicist who had immigrated to Brazil in 1933.)

I have emailed the AHJB website. Is there anywhere else I should
search? Is there a particular synagogue or cemetery where German
Jewish immigrants might have belonged?

Thank you for any help you can provide.
