Yizkor Book Project, January 2015 #latinamerica

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Last week, the International Holocaust Remembrance Day was commemorated,
marking 70 years since Auschwitz was liberated of by the Allies. As we grow
further and further away >from the events of the Holocaust, so does our need
grow to save every scrap of memory of the communities and the people that
were taken >from us forever. The Yizkor Book Project mission of disseminating
information on the lost communities freely available has continued in the
past month involving the translation of the original Yiddish and Hebrew
books into English, but not only... You will certainly notice below that
some of the additions and updates this past month are in Hebrew and Polish.
On one hand, Yiddish sections of a number of books have been translated into
Hebrew, making this material accessible to those whose mother tongue is
Hebrew and are less comfortable with English and on the other hand,
translations have been prepared in Polish for the people of Poland who
quite often have little information on the events that took place in their
own country during World War Two and are frequently thirsty for such
information.

Other than that, it was a milestone month for the Yizkor Books in Print
Project with no less than three books becoming available during January.
Congratulations to the volunteers behind this remarkable achievement! The
books are:

- Memorial Book of the Community of Turka on the Stryj and Vicinity
- Dubossary Memorial Book
- The Book of Klobucko; In Memory of a Martyred Community

As time progresses, we are seeing more and more correspondence >from people
interested in obtaining hard copies of the Yizkor Book translations. Whilst
the translations continue to be freely available online in the Yizkor Book
Project, there is a growing interest in seeing the translations in a
concrete, "touchable" format on people's bookshelves. The only thing here is
that in order to reach the publishing stage, we obviously need to complete
the translation of the books beforehand. This generally requires quite a
deal of financial report and, as always, if you feel strongly about seeing
the books translated and are able to assist in any way, your donations would
be very much appreciated and perhaps, in the end, would mean you seeing the
book you supported sitting proudly on your bookshelf at home.

If you wish to learn more about the Yizkor Book in Print Project or how you
can support one of the Yizkor Book Translation projects, please see the
links at the end of this message.

Lastly, I would like to point out a new page which has been added to the YB
Project called Yizkor Book Insights at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybinsights.html . The first of the articles
which appear here have been kindly donated by Shalom Bronstein and Dr. Ida
Selavan Schwarcz and I'm sure you'll find their insights into Yizkor books
particularly enlightening. Hopefully, more of these type of articles will be
added with time.

Now to facts and figures for January.

Looking for Adam Katzeff or anyone with knowledge of Swedish Jewish Genealogy #general

Paula Blank
 

I am looking for Adam Katzeff who posted a while back on the Scandanavian SIG
list.

My ancestor, Jacob JACOBSOHN (sp?) was born in Sweden between 1778-1799
He moved (I assume with his parents) to Jelgava, Latvia and had a child there
circa 1816.

I assume his grandfather was also Jacob. The family name stayed Jacobsohn >from
that point on. Jacob's father may have been Simon. Any ideas?

Paula Blank

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Looking for Adam Katzeff or anyone with knowledge of Swedish Jewish Genealogy #general

Paula Blank
 

I am looking for Adam Katzeff who posted a while back on the Scandanavian SIG
list.

My ancestor, Jacob JACOBSOHN (sp?) was born in Sweden between 1778-1799
He moved (I assume with his parents) to Jelgava, Latvia and had a child there
circa 1816.

I assume his grandfather was also Jacob. The family name stayed Jacobsohn >from
that point on. Jacob's father may have been Simon. Any ideas?

Sailing to US Via Hamburg and Liverpool #general

Allan Karan
 

Greetings,

I found Joseph PERSKY age 24 sailing >from Hamburg on 30 March 1889 papers
noting that he is going to America via Liverpool on the SS Sprite and then
on 18 April 1889 Joseph PERSKY arrives in America on the SS Kansas. Since it
is about a 8 day sailing, I assume he left Liverpool on or about the 10 of
April 1889.

Question: When the sailing papers show sailing >from Hamburg to the US via
Liverpool, would they change ships or stay on the same ship?

Subject: BRENNER OR BRENER - What other surname could they have sailed under in 1880-1884 #general

William Rodman
 

David,

You might also want to consider the surname Bronfenbrenner (distiller of
spirits, alcohol, etc. - think philanthropic Bronfman family of Seagram's fame,
who literally made their fortune producing liquor, perhaps with a little help
from Prohibition).
There's also the unfortunate possibility that your relatives could have sailed
under some completely different, unrelated name.

I have Brenner ancestors whom I discovered were formerly Bronfenbrenners.

Based on other arrivals I found, they probably came through Baltimore, but I
have checked all possible ports. Their first cities were in Pennsylvania:
Lancaster, Harrisburg and Reading.

Many sailed under the BRENNER/BRENER surname. Would be surprised if they did
not. Nevertheless, I am looking for other possible surnames they may have used.

Judith,

Surname Uzdinsky is originated >from the word "uzda" which is in Russian and
Polish means a bridle.

Jewish Records Indexing-Poland identifies similar origin names such as
Uzdanski in Bialystok, Zamosc and Warszawa.

Hope this help
