Yizkor Book Project, April 2012 [no references to Germany] #germany

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Once again, during the last month, the Yizkor Book Project grew in all sorts
of directions. This growth includes the completion of the "The Martyrdom and
Extermination of the Jews in Kielce During World War II" project and the
addition of the whole of the Hebrew section >from the Vishnevets, Ukraine
Yizkor Book, plus substantial additions to many of our other projects
currently in progress.

You will see that a number of new books >from the Bessarabian region have
been added and we are now looking for people to take on the coordination of
these important projects. In general, if you would like to become involved
in these or any of our other projects, I would definitely like to hear from
you. No defined time commitments required - you are the one to generously
volunteer some of your free time and you can decide how much time you are
able to devote to these endeavors.

Once again, this past month, a number of necrologies have been placed online
from a wide range of communities - >from Estonia, Satu Mare, Romania, Mlyniv,
Ukraine and Thessaloniki, Greece. These necrologies are not only a token way
of immortalizing the names of Jews killed in the Holocaust, they also can
provide other important genealogical details like dates, family
relationships, professions and so on and for these reasons, we do place
great efforts into preparing these substantial lists.

I am happy to note that the Yizkor Books in Print Project is well under way
and awareness and sales are growing steadily. If you are interested in
knowing more about the project, what books are available and where they may
be purchased, especially in locations outside the US, you will find all this
information at: http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html

Yizkor Book Project, April 2012 #ciechanow #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Once again, during the last month, the Yizkor Book Project grew in all sorts
of directions. This growth includes the completion of the "The Martyrdom and
Extermination of the Jews in Kielce During World War II" project and the
addition of the whole of the Hebrew section >from the Vishnevets, Ukraine
Yizkor Book, plus substantial additions to many of our other projects
currently in progress.

You will see that a number of new books >from the Bessarabian region have
been added and we are now looking for people to take on the coordination of
these important projects. In general, if you would like to become involved
in these or any of our other projects, I would definitely like to hear from
you. No defined time commitments required - you are the one to generously
volunteer some of your free time and you can decide how much time you are
able to devote to these endeavors.

Once again, this past month, a number of necrologies have been placed online
from a wide range of communities - >from Estonia, Satu Mare, Romania, Mlyniv,
Ukraine and Thessaloniki, Greece. These necrologies are not only a token way
of immortalizing the names of Jews killed in the Holocaust, they also can
provide other important genealogical details like dates, family
relationships, professions and so on and for these reasons, we do place
great efforts into preparing these substantial lists.

I am happy to note that the Yizkor Books in Print Project is well under way
and awareness and sales are growing steadily. If you are interested in
knowing more about the project, what books are available and where they may
be purchased, especially in locations outside the US, you will find all this

Cemetery Galagonyas #hungary

j.kovacs@...
 

According to my reading of the German language death certificate of the
grandfather, he is buried in Galagonyas, Hungary (Ungarn). The location
Galagonyas no longer appears in the current small Hungarian atlas, but probably
could be found in a 1910-14 map. To get more information you may want to check
with military war archives either in Vienna or possibly the Hungarian military
archives in Budapest. But since you have the death certificate it's questionable
if they would have more information.

Re: Jewish Surnames in Banat #hungary

tom
 

just a few guesses:

1773, i think, is before hereditary surnames were required. MILANKOV
sounds like a patronymic meaning son of milan (?), so there's no real
"surname before", as such.

"kumane" sounds very similar to hummene.

and GAIN is indeed unusual, and so is KAIN, whereas i think KAHN (and
KLEIN) are quite common. so you might try to check the spelling in
the original document, if you can, for possible transcription errors.

My ancestor David MILANKOV (also appears as Damjan, 1773-1842)

current Vojvodina, then the military frontier (known as Banat Krajina)

Sara, Juliana, Pelagia and Isaak. Does anyone have any clue as to what
Jewish surname MILANKOV might correspond to, what it might have been

On another line, my ancestor Ivan GAIN (b.1768) also appears in
Nagykikinda/Grosskikinda/Chichinda Mare records (not sure where he

the name KAHN-KAIN-CAIN-KAJIN becoming GAIN? I have found quite a few

Yizkor Book Project, April 2012 #hungary

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Once again, during the last month, the Yizkor Book Project grew in all sorts
of directions. This growth includes the completion of the "The Martyrdom and
Extermination of the Jews in Kielce During World War II" project and the
addition of the whole of the Hebrew section >from the Vishnevets, Ukraine
Yizkor Book, plus substantial additions to many of our other projects
currently in progress.

You will see that a number of new books >from the Bessarabian region have
been added and we are now looking for people to take on the coordination of
these important projects. In general, if you would like to become involved
in these or any of our other projects, I would definitely like to hear from
you. No defined time commitments required - you are the one to generously
volunteer some of your free time and you can decide how much time you are
able to devote to these endeavors.

Once again, this past month, a number of necrologies have been placed online
from a wide range of communities - >from Estonia, Satu Mare, Romania, Mlyniv,
Ukraine and Thessaloniki, Greece. These necrologies are not only a token way
of immortalizing the names of Jews killed in the Holocaust, they also can
provide other important genealogical details like dates, family
relationships, professions and so on and for these reasons, we do place
great efforts into preparing these substantial lists.

I am happy to note that the Yizkor Books in Print Project is well under way
and awareness and sales are growing steadily. If you are interested in
knowing more about the project, what books are available and where they may
be purchased, especially in locations outside the US, you will find all this

Hungary SIG #Hungary Cemetery Galagonyas #hungary

j.kovacs@...
 

According to my reading of the German language death certificate of the
grandfather, he is buried in Galagonyas, Hungary (Ungarn). The location
Galagonyas no longer appears in the current small Hungarian atlas, but probably
could be found in a 1910-14 map. To get more information you may want to check
with military war archives either in Vienna or possibly the Hungarian military
archives in Budapest. But since you have the death certificate it's questionable
if they would have more information.

Hungary SIG #Hungary Re: Jewish Surnames in Banat #hungary

tom
 

just a few guesses:

1773, i think, is before hereditary surnames were required. MILANKOV
sounds like a patronymic meaning son of milan (?), so there's no real
"surname before", as such.

"kumane" sounds very similar to hummene.

and GAIN is indeed unusual, and so is KAIN, whereas i think KAHN (and
KLEIN) are quite common. so you might try to check the spelling in
the original document, if you can, for possible transcription errors.

On another line, my ancestor Ivan GAIN (b.1768) also appears in
Nagykikinda/Grosskikinda/Chichinda Mare records (not sure where he

the name KAHN-KAIN-CAIN-KAJIN becoming GAIN? I have found quite a few

Re: World War 1 cemetery, Galagonyas #hungary

mhollosi@...
 

The fact that your grandfather died in battle should help narrow down the location. It looks certain to be Galagonyas (=Serbian Glogonj = German Glogau). This town was part of Austria-Hungary before 1918, in the district of Pancsova (now Pancevo), in the county of Torontál, so it is normal for the place of death within the monarchy to have been documented with the Hungarian name. This place is very near the old border between Hungary and Serbia. You may want to follow up on the details of war activities in this area during WW I.

The other reference you found to a similar place name near the village of Szomolya (about 33 km SW of Miskolc in the present-day Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplen county) does not qualify as a settlement. Besides, there were no WW I hostilities in this area in 1915.

Hope that helps
