Dear researchers,

Sorry, but I missed one part to navigate to the inventory of all
cemeteries...

I wrote:
- go to www.jewishgen.org, and under Databases click on Burial Registry
(JOWBR) - this is where the inventory of all cemeteries worked on.

In fact after you clicked on JOWBR, you need to click on "Contents of the
Database", it is about 1/3 of the page >from the top on the left side.

Subject: Bessarabian Cemeteries... where is the list?

Dear researchers,

I realized recently that many of our members do not know where at
JewishGen.org to find a list of all Cemeteries indexed or/and photographed.
I received a number of messages asking if we did any work at a such and such
cemetery.

So, let's find out where is a list of all cemeteries:

- go to www.jewishgen.org, and under Databases click on Burial Registry
(JOWBR) - this is where the inventory of all cemeteries worked on.
- The inventory is created by CURRENT countries (you will not find a country
Bessarabia there!).

- Our region as you may know was divided in 20c and now located in TWO
countries: Moldova and Ukraine.

- Country: Moldova (17 cemeteries, 31364 burials). Under Moldova you will
see 2 Regions: Bessarabia (15 cemeteries) and Kherson (2 cemeteries).
- Country: Ukraine, click on Region: Bessarabia (5 cemeteries, 3584
burials) (Actually there are 4 cemeteries: Kilia and Kiliya - the same
town, it is a duplication).

Also keep in mind that JewishGen / JOWBR updates the website two times a
year, the FOUR cemeteries we completed in August and September will appear
in JOWBR and on that list in the beginning of 2016. For these cemeteries
you can see Cemetery reports, also Unknown Graves at Bessarabia SIG website.

I suggest to read Bessarabia SIG Monthly updates, other postings where you
may find new information about cemetery projects in progress.

There are total of about 70 cemeteries where Jews were buried in
Bessarabia/Moldova, and with your help we will index and photograph ALL of
them in a near future!

Here are also 2 rules we developed:
1) If you want to get a full LIST of burials in a cemetery we completed, for
a donation of $100, you will get it, and also if you find your ancestors, we
will send you photos, sometimes we may have 2-3 photos of a gravestone, and
JOWBR will display of course only one. We can send you this even before the
index/photos appear at JOWBR.
I should say that many people made donations and received the complete list
and photos.

2) If your cemetery IS NOT yet completed and the work is not in progress,
you can INITIATE a new cemetery project by collecting among people you may
know or related to that town, about 30% of approximate cost (we are paying
for photos).
I should say that majority of cemetery projects started in 2014-2015 are
done this way.

Of course if you cemetery is in work, please make a donation. You can find
Bessarabia-Moldova Cemetery project at the donation list, and also there are
several other cemetery projects on that list.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Shalom to all Genners,
I've posted a vital record in German, for which I need a translation.
Actually, I don't need a full translation, Google is very helpful in
it. But I do need a transliteration to printed German. This is a vital
record >from Desden, 1902, and the handwriting is so calligraphied and
gothic, that I cannot read it. I posted one page although I got some
ten pages. But I guess, I hope, that if you help me with one page,
I"ll manage easier with the other pages.

Thank you, Lisa!

I'm amazed. I searched for the Jewish cemetery, Cali, but in
English. I wonder if the younger brother, Rolf Joseph, is still
living. he would be about 90 yrs old. And I wonder if either
brother left descendants.

More hunting. thanks again.

Re: Making copies of Forverts articles etc at the NYPL #general

A. E. Jordan
 

For anyone wanting to do research at the NYPL with the Forward (or
anything else), here a few tips to add to Steve's message:

Dorot Division is in the back of Room 111 -- you need to walk through
another reading room to get there and they do not like large bags,
purses, etc. in the room -- most of the collection is actually on the
stacks and takes 30 to 60 minutes to retrieve but you can advance order
off the web site -- if you go for the Forward microfilms there are two
reader printers in Room 111 or else you are permitted to take the films
to Room 100 the Microforms reading room -- the machines in the Dorot
room charge 25 cents a page and need copy cards which you can buy
onsite -- bring lots of Dollar bills

Microforms Room 100 is the main source for microfilms and they now have
four scanner printers that you have generally to reserve when you get
there and can use for one hour intervals -- these machines are free as
long as you remember to bring a USB stick along -- if you paper print it
is still 25 cents a page but scans to drives are free -- here they have
the newspapers both >from New York and other areas but again they are
mostly on the stacks and take up to 1 hour to retrieve unless you
advance reserve -- here they also have phone books on microfilm and
address directories >from New York City

The other main place for genealogy research is the Milstein collections
room 119 and 123 -- the opposite of building -- it is a lot of walking.
This has the genealogy microfilms for vital records, census, etc. plus
the reference room which has computers with most of the major databases
and research assistance -- I have not yet asked if they permit you to
take films to Room 100 to scan -- all they have in Room 119 so far are
the paper printers for microfilms again at 25 cents a page

Depending on what type of research you are doing it is more than likely
now that you will need a library card. Anything retrieved >from the
stacks or to reserve one of the scanner readers requires a card -- you
can get a guest card but read up on their website to save time onsite

I am aware of several, different entries as well as distinct

There are several entries in fond 993 and fond 994.
There is also an entry in fond 1004.
Why were there so many entries, with dates of 1905, 1906 and 1909?
In addition, where can I get copies of these records.

Thank you.
