Award for Outstanding Contribution to Jewish Genealogy via the Internet #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

Dear fellow researchers:

At the International Conference on Jewish Genealogy earlier this month,
Jewish Records Indexing - Poland was presented with the 2014 IAJGS
(International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies) "Award for
Outstanding Contribution to Jewish Genealogy via the Internet."

The Board of JRI-Poland wishes to express its gratitude to the IAJGS
for presenting us the award and to the hundreds of JRI-Poland
volunteers who have contributed to our organization's success.

The certificate accompanying the award states:

JRI-Poland is recognized for providing since 1995 searchable
on-line indices of Jewish records >from current and former
territories of Poland and for its recent ground-breaking multi-year
agreement with the Polish State Archives (PSA) in a massive
effort to digitize all vital records in more than 30 regional
archives. This initiative will dramatically expand access to
records for family historians tracing their Jewish roots to
Poland and make them freely available online.

The award and certificate appear on the JRI-Poland home page at
www.jri-poland.org

This award is of singular pride for everyone associated with
JRI-Poland; it is the first time the IAJGS has given this award a
second time to the same organization. JRI-Poland previously
received the award in 1999 when there were just a half million
entries in the database

The executive committee and board of Jewish Records Indexing - Poland
acknowledges the remarkable efforts of its many hundreds of volunteers
and the generosity of researchers around the world. Our success is due
to the boundless energy of those volunteers together with the support of
contributors with a common interest.

Hello,

I am searching for any relatives of one Felix GOLDSZTAJN/GOLDSTEIN,
born in Kutno, Poland to Abram Icchak GOLDSZTAJN and Itte GOLDSZTAJN
nee ZERYKER in 1909. Felix survived the holocaust and apparently
reached Israel and settled in Lod in the 50's (at the very least
lived there in 1957).

Thank you

Rabbi Benjamin Wolf Low of Verbo #hungary

Amit N
 

Hello,

One of the good men in here has revealed to me the fact that one of my
ancestors, Rabbi Baruch Bernat Lichtenstein of Nagy-Kosztolan (modern
dat Velke Kostolany, Slovakia, b.1812 d. 1890), was the son-in-law of
the aforementioned Rabbi Benjamin Wolf Low >from Verbo, the author of
"Shaare Torah".
I would like to try and locate the family tree of Rabbi Low, and
understand which daughter was it that married Rabbi Lichtenstein. What
was her name? When was she born? Who were her siblings? etc.
I thought it wouldn't be very difficult, due to the importance of
descendence in Hassidic/Orthodox society, but unfortunately all of my
internet searching was futile. Therefore, I would be glad if any of
you genners have any information about Rabbi Low and his family, and
specifically about the wife of R' Lichtenstein. If anyone could direct
me to records of the Lichtenstein family it would also be amazing, and
all kinds of general information about the Rabbi, which I have failed
to find. And not to be confused with the more famous Lichtenstein
Rabbis, Bernat and Hillel.

Thank you on advance,

Sierpc Yizkor Book Translation Complete #general

Sandra Krisch
 

Dear friends,

I am delighted to share wonderful news about the Yizkor Book for
Sierpc, Poland. Translation of this 600-plus page volume is now
complete and it is online in its entirety at
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Sierpc/Sierpc.html.

I am indebted to Dorothy Lipsky, who shared with me the project
coordination and editing of this extraordinary volume. We had the
benefit of the masterful translations of Alex Weingarten (Hebrew
sections) and Jerrold Landau (Yiddish sections), each a joy to work
with. We are deeply indebted to Perry Rosenstein and the Puffin
Foundation (Teaneck, NJ) for financial support. And of course we
acknowledge the incomparable support of Lance Ackerfeld and his
team in making our work available to all. If you have ancestral
roots in Sierpc or nearby communities (e.g., Zuromin, Rypin, Raciaz,
Plock) I encourage you to access the translation. The amount of
detail and the quality of the writing are superb. Much of it is
heartbreaking, but all is illuminating.

Variations for names #galicia

Robin Thomas <robin3509@...>
 

Hello,

I have a few questions about my great uncle Morris Siegel:

1) On his death certificate, his father's name is written as Schlerma.
My grandmother's (his sister) father is known as either Shlomo or
Solomon. Has anyone seen Schlerma or similar used for Shlomo?

2) His 1911 ship manifest has his last residence as Brody, Austria.
His wife and daughter arrive in 1914 and their manifest states
they're >from what looks like Brodulski, Brodulnki or Broduliki.
Would any of those names have been used for Brody?

3) Morris' ship manifest states he was born in Topow. My
grandmother (his sister) was born in Toporow. Was Toporow
sometimes abbreviated as Topow?

I'm guessing the answer is Yes for all of the above, but wanted
to get confirmation.

Thank you,
Robin Thomas
