Irene Weissengrun - from Rudki #galicia

Barbara Ras Wechsler
 

Hi

I am trying to trace the origins of Irene Wechsler. Her maiden name was
Weissengrun and was buried in Trieste in the Jewish Cemetery. She
was 85 years of age at the time of death.

There are no further traces of the Weissengrun family in Trieste. She
probably came to Italy together with her husband (and children?). She
shares her grave with Rosa Wechsler, who died 10 years prior at the age
of 74 years and was probably unmarried.

I don't know the first name of Irene's husband, all I have is her death
date and approximate birthdate:
- born about 1845
- died December 20th, 1930

Dates of Rosa Wechsler
- born about 1846
- died September 14th, 1920

The only Weissengruns I found are >from Rudki, L'viv, Ukraine and
proximity. So at present, I'm assuming she came to Italy >from the
Lemberg / Lviv area with her husband.

Maybe somebody is researching the Weissengrun family and can help
me out.

RE: Info on Korostyshev burial society

I would suggest sending e-mail to Waldheim - office@waldheimcemetery.com .

According to a map of Waldheim, that cemetery is gate 251 and is under
the control of Waldheim (not Silverman and Weiss). I assume that their
records might have the names of the officers of the verein. And, if
Mr. Starr is deceased, he would be buried there, and Waldheim would
have his name in the records.

Shalom,

I believe I surprised even myself with the quantity and volume of new and
updated materials added into the Yizkor Book Project during that ever so
short month, February.

We are certainly blessed with a great number of extremely conscientious
volunteers who provide these translations and I would like to point three
very particularly extensive entries added now which involved many hours of
work by the volunteers who prepared them. They are:

II)

Bohemia in the past and present)

Apart >from new entries and projects, we regularly receive additional updates
for existing projects and, as I pointed last time, some of these projects
are very close to completion - a very gratifying feeling for all those
involved. We do have more than 700 hundred projects currently running and
there are many that need assistance to go forward. If you see a project with
only the table of contents translated, this is a fairly sure sign that it's
waiting patiently for someone to take on. If you'd like to know what's
involved in coordinating such a project, please feel free to write to me.

Re: Book Cite: Czechs, Germans, Jews? #austria-czech

jonora@...
 

Those of us who (after surviving Terezin and Auschwitz) returned home to
the Czech lands in May 1945 were terrified when the question of who was Czech,
German or Jewish in the 1930 general census was raised. The 1930 census (the year that
I was born) became public. The threat of deportation to Germany after the
war became a possibility (for those declaring themselves German in the 1930
census).
I do not believe that any Holocaust survivors were actually deported (as
were 3million Germans) but the fear was there.
Most younger Jews declared as Czech, but many declared as Germans in the
"secret" 1930 census.

Yohanan
 

Dear researchers,

I appreciate help in translating 3 lines’ record in hard-to-decipher old
German.
It is about Marcus NATAN >from Holics, Slovakia (then Austro-Hungary).
The record, >from 1851, can be viewed on Familysearch website, Holics
1851-1884 Birth (C-919), Page (image) 3,
See:
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-1-159391-433896-4?cc=1554443&;wc=M99C-W5V:n1726521428

Or Tiny URL: http://tiny.cc/vy36sw

This record, the first on the page, has a different setting to the other
three birth records on that image,
so I wonder if it is a birth record; Or, is it about my Great-Great
grandfather,
Marcus NATAN >from Radosovce / Holics, Slovakia (born 1801, death unknown,
could be 1851).

Hungary SIG #Hungary Old_German_translation_help_Marcus_NATAN_record #hungary

Yohanan
 

Dear researchers,

I appreciate help in translating 3 lines’ record in hard-to-decipher old
German.
It is about Marcus NATAN >from Holics, Slovakia (then Austro-Hungary).
The record, >from 1851, can be viewed on Familysearch website, Holics
1851-1884 Birth (C-919), Page (image) 3,
See:
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-1-159391-433896-4?cc=1554443&;wc=M99C-W5V:n1726521428

Or Tiny URL: http://tiny.cc/vy36sw

This record, the first on the page, has a different setting to the other
three birth records on that image,
so I wonder if it is a birth record; Or, is it about my Great-Great
grandfather,
Marcus NATAN >from Radosovce / Holics, Slovakia (born 1801, death unknown,
could be 1851).

Hungary SIG #Hungary Yizkor Book Project, February 2013 #hungary

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I believe I surprised even myself with the quantity and volume of new and
updated materials added into the Yizkor Book Project during that ever so
short month, February.

We are certainly blessed with a great number of extremely conscientious
volunteers who provide these translations and I would like to point three
very particularly extensive entries added now which involved many hours of
work by the volunteers who prepared them. They are:

- Chisinau, Moldova (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Romania, Volume
II)
- Liberec (Reichenberg), Czech Republic (The Jews and Jewish Communities of
Bohemia in the past and present)
- Vilnius, Lithuania (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Poland, Volume
VIII)

Apart >from new entries and projects, we regularly receive additional updates
for existing projects and, as I pointed last time, some of these projects
are very close to completion - a very gratifying feeling for all those
involved. We do have more than 700 hundred projects currently running and
there are many that need assistance to go forward. If you see a project with
only the table of contents translated, this is a fairly sure sign that it's
waiting patiently for someone to take on. If you'd like to know what's
involved in coordinating such a project, please feel free to write to me.

Now to facts and figures for February, during this last month we have added
these 6 new projects:

- Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine (Yekaterinoslav-Dnepropetrovsk Memorial Book)
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Ekaterinoslav/Ekaterinoslav.html

- Mosonmagyarovar, Hungary (Memories and Recollections of Moson Jewry)

JewishGen 2012 Review #hungary

Groll, Avraham
 

Dear Friends,

1 million records. More than 41,000 new users. Nearly 8,000 donors.

These figures demonstrate tremendous accomplishment by JewishGen in
2012. As we wrote a few months ago, we are actively growing our
databases to meet the demand of our constantly expanding user base.
Second, our users continue to appreciate the free service provided
by JewishGen, and are willing to financially support its mission.

There is still so much more to do.

We added more than 1 million records last year (surpassing 21
million records in total!), hundreds of Yizkor Book translations and
many other important items of interest to Jewish genealogists - but
there remain millions of records throughout the world that have yet
to be digitized, indexed, and made searchable on JewishGen. Some
for-profit companies seek to obtain these records, and then charge
to access them. It is our belief that Jewish family research should
be freely accessible, and we are doing everything we can to keep it
that way.

With this in mind, we are proud to publish our "2012 Review,"
highlighting JewishGen's accomplishments over the course of the
previous year. As you may have noticed, many of our most popular
features (such as the Family Finder and Burial Registry) now have
distinctively branded logos, making it easier to identify the
information you are viewing. A project that has generated
particular enthusiasm is our "Memorial Plaques" project, whereby
volunteers throughout the world are indexing the names appearing on
Memorial (Yizkor) plaques in their synagogues.

As always, major and significant improvements (with the rapid
advance of technology, these improvements are always significant)
have continued to be made "behind the scenes" to help ensure an
easy, powerful, and secure web experience.

This past July, JewishGen's ViewMate project won the "Outstanding
Program or Project Award" at the IAJGS conference in Paris. We'd
like to congratulate the team of JewishGen volunteers who created
and maintain ViewMate: Sam Eneman, Administrator; Gary Sandler,
Programmer; and Bernard Kouchel, who envisioned the original
concept.

Finally, and most importantly, our loyal users continued to
provide us with a strong base of financial support - we received
nearly 8,000 donations last year - allowing us to operate within
our budget for the third year in a row despite global economic
uncertainty.

Running more than 40 pages, the 2012 Review covers these, and
other topics as well. Last year's report was viewed more than
20,000 times, and we are confident that this year's report will
reach an even wider audience.

The 2012 Review can be accessed here:

Regardless of your level of financial support, we are glad that
you are part of the global JewishGen community - the JewishGen
family - and we hope you will enjoy reading about our
accomplishments in 2012, along with our plans for what we hope
will be an even better 2013.
