Russian Duma Voter List 1906-1907 #general

Jon Jaroker <jewishgen@...>
 

Hello,

Would anyone know where I may obtain images of the original "Russia Duma
Voter Lists 1906-1907" records?

Ancestry and jewishgen only show the transcribed information, not the
original document. I would like to see the original document in the hopes
that it may contain additional, handwritten information about the voters.

Thank you,
Jon

Yizkor- The Fate of Family Left Behind #rabbinic

Norbert Weinberg <norofra@...>
 

This chapter of "Courage of the Spirit" examines the fate of the other
family members of the Weinberg brothers while they escaped >from Austria,
Czechoslovakia, Poland, and on to Central Asia. It concludes with an excerpt
from an essay by my father , Rabbi William Weinberg, written in the 1960's,
for the Bnai Brith "National Jewish Monthly" looking at what were the root
causes of anti-Semitism in his time .

***
Yizkor--The Fate of the Family Members Left Behind

What was it that the brothers had escaped?
Raoul Hilberg, noted historian of the Holocaust, the first one to apply
detailed statistical accounting to the Destruction of the European Jews ,as
he titled his sweeping research of the political, economic, and military
resources brought to bear on the Jews. While it is important to note that
Nazism's victims numbered in many millions, it was the Jews that were
singled out as the prime enemy of the Third Reich and the prime target of
the largest manhunt in history. It was the culmination of a historic trend,
as he described: "The missionaries of Christianity said: You have no right
to live among us as Jews. The secular rulers who followed had proclaimed:
You have no right to live among us. The Nazis at last decreed: You have no
right to live." Hilberg delineated the systematic processes of destruction:
the rollback of civil and human rights by a thousand years; the
expropriation of Jewish property; the deportation and concentration of Jews;
the killing process, first through mobile killing units and then through
killing centers.
My father had been through the loss of his civil rights, had lost his source
of income ( as the family had lost much of their finances), and had been
deported, luckily, to escape the ultimate bitterness of concentration and
destruction.

Thanks Re: Unusual name #general

Snillop47@...
 

I asked about a name I had come across, which was new to me. Several
people were kind enough to respond. I gather that it is a known name - one or
two said that it was in their family. Some suggested possible meanings for
the name. Interesting, but all speculative. Many thanks to all.

Honoring JewishGen's Volunteers #ciechanow #poland

Warren Blatt <wblatt@...>
 

Dear Friends,

On June 2, we will be honoring Karen Franklin, Gary Mokotoff, and
Lance Ackerfeld, for their leadership and dedication to JewishGen.

After working with each of these individuals for years, it gives
me great pleasure to see that they will get just a small measure
of the recognition they deserve.

Please join me in honoring them and participate in JewishGen's
Spring Brunch, which be held in New York on June 2. We will
also publish a tribute journal, and I invite you to place an ad.

You can register for the brunch and/or place an ad by calling
646-437-4326, or by visiting http://www.JewishGen.org/Event

Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Warren Blatt
Managing Director, JewishGen


Yizkor Book Project, April 2013 #ciechanow #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Simply amazing! These are the words that come to mind in regards the Yizkor
Book in Print Project coordinated by Joel Alpert which is presently
celebrating its second year of existence. There are now, no less than 14
books available to be purchased and in the very near future, a further two
new books will be added:

- Memorial (Yizkor) Book of the destroyed Jewish Community of Podhajce,
Ukraine
- Yampol Memorial Book

My sincere thanks go out to Joel and his team for this incredible
achievement in this project thus far and look forward to seeing their next
masterpieces.

So popular is this project that we receive requests for books that have yet
to be translated which is, you'll agree, "slightly" problematic. <g> So, if
the community book you are interested in seeing printed has yet to be fully
translated, we welcome your involvement in helping to see this goal reached
and if you are interested, please feel free to contact me. We presently have
over 70 books fully translated but we also have a further 600+ book projects
in various stages of progress, so that we do have our work set out for us.

I would also like to note in this report, the great contribution of Osnat
Hazan and her team in preparing data for our Yizkor Book Main Index
database. The idea behind this database is the establishment of a searchable
database of all the people appearing in the various Yizkor Books. As you can
imagine, preparing such a database requires a great deal of dedication and
patience to go through the translations and index the proper names within
them. I understand the database will presently hold a total of 85,000
records which is a very commendable achievement and, of course, the work to
add more and more names goes on.

In general, I would like personally shake hands and thank all those many
people involved in the Yizkor Book Project whose contributions are so
important. Since I don't think I'll be able to visit you to shake all your
hands, I have continued to update the long credit list of over 400
volunteers who make the YB Project what is. This list is viewable at
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/

Elona Steinfeld, Research Co-ordinator, SA Friends of Beth Hatefutsoth is
looking for information about Manus/Moses/Isaac Levin/e and his son Woolf/Wulf
Robert Levin/e. They both fought in the Anglo-Boer War on the side of the Boers
and were imprisoned in Ceylon. They were early settlers in Greylingstad, but
the information she has is scanty. There is conflicting information in Rabbi
Rabinowitz's Boerejode files and in the National Archives.
