Yes Joyce... there was a cholera epidemic in the area....
On my kehilalinks page for Rymanow
(www.kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/krosno/krosnorym.hem) you will see
the list of cholera epidemic victims. The lists indicates their towns,
names, ages, occupations, the date when they contracted cholera, and
date of death. The death date was left blank, unless the person
succumbed to cholera.

At one time there were many of these pages on Google, but alas, no
longer. But if you google Cholera and Poland, you'll find lots of
information on the topic.

Happy hunting!

GORDON, MESSIE, ENDLIN, MELER #lithuania

Joan Kramer
 

Hello,

I have been trying for many years to unravel one of my genealogical
mysteries.

One of my cousins, Shifra ABRAMOVITCH TATZ, who emigrated from
Memel/Telsiai, Lithuania to Palestine in 1937, corresponded with her
cousin, Shifra/Sophia GORDON ENDLIN, who had emigrated >from Seda,
Lithuania to Witbank, South Africa. Their correspondence apparently
continued throughout their lives. Unfortunately, none of those letters
seems to still exist.

I am trying to learn how Shifra and Sophia were cousins. Here's what I
do know:

Shifra ABRAMOVITCH TATZ was born about 1907, the daughter of Chaya
MELER/MILER ABRAMOVITCH, bat Shloima Haim, and Yakov ABRAMOVITCH, ben
David.

Shifra/Sophia GORDON ENDLIN, was the youngest of 16 children of Nehemia
GORDON, ben Tuviya, and Dvora-Gita MESSIE bat Nahum.

One of the eldest of those 16 GORDON siblings Was Cherna GORDON, who
married Mendel/Menachem ENDLIN.
Among their children was Nathan Endlin, who was born about the same
time as his aunt, Sophia...about 1906-8.
When the two of them emigrated to South Africa, they married in
Mozambique, never telling their families that they had married.

I also know that Shifra ABRAMOVITCH TATZ (wife of Eliezer TATZ) was
named after her grandmother, Shifra Ela (maiden Name unknown) MELER.
And that Shifra/Sophia GORDON ENDLIN was also named after the same
person.

That person was my great great grandmother. I believe that the
cousin-ship between Shifra and Sophia stems >from Shifra Ela's side of
the family. That leads me to believe that her maiden name was either
GORDON, MESSIE or ENDLIN.

Does anyone have any knowledge of these families? If so, please contact
me directly.

Best wishes,
Joan Kramer

Yizkor Book Project, April 2013 #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/

A success story - thanks to JRI-Poland #poland

Martin Davis <dawidowicz@...>
 

Through the little success story below, I would like to belatedly record
my family's gratitude to JRI-Poland for both their indexing of the vital
records of Jewish Poland and their general work. Simply put, if it had
not been for the records indexed by them, and available to us all, I would
never have got any further in family history research than the scant verbal
information I had used to develop a suggested family tree.

In early research, my late aunt had said to me what I understood to be,
"Your father was born in Pabjanice but we come >from Sterzev" - I
finally concluded it must be Staszow in central Poland but could find
no link to my family! In fact I spent 30 something years looking for the
real 'Sterzev', until one morning I woke up and thought that I would simply
interrogate the JRI-Poland database using my grandmother's slightly
different first name (Machla) and family name JAKUBOWICZ. Up popped a
series of locations and in those was a village with the indexed records
related to my grandparents and great grandparents etc. I discovered that
the shtetl was in fact the village of Szczercow in central Poland
(correctly Stertzev in Yiddish) and so my little clan's home village
was pinpointed and a verifiable family tree could begin to be built built.

Things have moved on a long way since those heady days of discovery, but
I think it important to finally record my thanks to JRI-Poland for
its/your superb service.

Yizkor Book Project, April 2013 #france

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/

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
