Yizkor Book Project, June 2011 #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

As we head out into the long hot summer or the long cold winter, for those
on the other side of the planet, I have to report that June was yet another
"hyperactive" month for the Yizkor Book Project. Happily, quite a large
number of new books and entries were added and notably, a new Translation
project has been added this month for Dej, Romania (Des, Hungary) and we are
looking for financial support of this project in order to allow those of you
with roots there, to read about the people and thriving culture that existed
before the Holocaust. If you feel able to assist in helping to finance this
or any of our currently running translation projects at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
, your help would be much appreciated. The importance of these funds is
clearly illustrated in this month's updates, half of which are projects in
our Translations Funds.

June also saw the addition of a large number of necrologies which not only
immortalize the names of our loved ones but also can provide their family
relationships, professions, dates of birth and more or these people. As
such, these lists are also an invaluable genealogical resource and to assist
in research, the names >from the necrologies are periodically added to the
searchable Yizkor Book Necrology Database at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/ These days, this important but
time-taking work of adding to the database is carried out by Max Heffler,
who also carries out a myriad of other tasks for JewishGen and elsewhere. I
would truly like to spread the heavy load which these days falls heavily on
Max's shoulders alone and am eager to hear >from any of you who have some
time to help in preparing the lists in Excel which are then added to the
database.

update of Historical Jewish Press #poland

Rose Feldman <rosef@...>
 

I would like to bring to your attention a number of papers that have
been added in the last month to this website here in Israel. Although
the papers are in Hebrew, they are searchable and maybe important
genealogically for those with roots in Austria, eastern Europe and
Eretz Israel.

Hed Ha-Mizrach published in Jerusalem during the years 1942-1944 and
again in 1949-1951. This digital edition contains 2,669 pages. Hed
Ha-Mizrach stood out among the ethnic, community-based journals
published during the Mandate period and the first years after the
establishment of the State of Israel. The driving force behind the
paper was Eliyahu Elyashar (1899-1991), the most prominent Sephardi
politician of the period, who adopted a policy of opposition to the
Ashkenazi establishment - not only on the question of the attitude
towards Mizrahi and Sephardi Jews, but also in other matters like the
Arab-Zionist conflict. The paper's renewed, digital circulation on
the internet is therefore of particular significance.
http://jpress.nli.org.il/publications/Heid_Ha-Mizrach-en.asp

Ha-Po'eel Ha-Tsa'air
The paper served as the main journal for the Zionist Labor Movement in
Palestine, >from its inception in 1907 up until the first appearance of
the daily Davar in 1925; even after it was overtaken by Davar, it
continued to be published until 1970. The website's collection
includes only the years 1907-1925.

Ivri Anochi
The newspaper was published between the years 1865 and 1890 and was
one of the most important Haskalah papers, which did not undergo a
nationalist transformation during the Hibbat Tsiyyon period. The
electronic edition contains 9,331 pages.

Holyn, which was in the Austro-Hungarian province of "Galicia," was
located near Kalusz, in the Dolina and Kalusz districts (time
dependent) and in the Stanislawow Province. Today it is in Ukraine.

Here is a link to the JewishGen page with information about the town
covering pre-WWI through today:

Yizkor Book Project, June 2011 #latinamerica

Shalom,

As we head out into the long hot summer or the long cold winter, for those
on the other side of the planet, I have to report that June was yet another
"hyperactive" month for the Yizkor Book Project. Happily, quite a large
number of new books and entries were added and notably, a new Translation
project has been added this month for Dej, Romania (Des, Hungary) and we are
looking for financial support of this project in order to allow those of you
with roots there, to read about the people and thriving culture that existed
before the Holocaust. If you feel able to assist in helping to finance this
or any of our currently running translation projects at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
, your help would be much appreciated. The importance of these funds is
clearly illustrated in this month's updates, half of which are projects in
our Translations Funds.

June also saw the addition of a large number of necrologies which not only
immortalize the names of our loved ones but also can provide their family
relationships, professions, dates of birth and more or these people. As
such, these lists are also an invaluable genealogical resource and to assist
in research, the names >from the necrologies are periodically added to the
searchable Yizkor Book Necrology Database at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/ These days, this important but
time-taking work of adding to the database is carried out by Max Heffler,
who also carries out a myriad of other tasks for JewishGen and elsewhere. I
would truly like to spread the heavy load which these days falls heavily on
Max's shoulders alone and am eager to hear >from any of you who have some
time to help in preparing the lists in Excel which are then added to the
database.

seeking family in Buenos Aires #latinamerica

apollo@...
 

Hello all,

I have been trying for a long time to find some trace of my grandmother's
cousin, who migrated >from Poland (Lodz) to Buenos Aires before World War II.
The cousin's name was Ester JACUBOWICZ nee SZLAMKOWICZ and she and my
grandmother (who migrated to Australia after the war) used to write to each
other, but contact was lost decades ago. Thanks to the JewishGen discussion
group, and to Yehudah Ben Shlomo in particular, I learned about the AMIA and
CEMLA websites, and I believe I have found her gravesite, and possibly that
of her husband, in the Tablada cemetery in Buenos Aires.

I would now desperately like to find out what is written on her
gravestone -- especially the names of children and/or grandchildren -- or if
there is any information in Jewish community records in Buenos Aires that
could help me find her family. Is there anyone already in or planning to
visit Buenos Aires who is going to the Tablada cemetery and could help out?
I read in other postings that apparently photographing graves is legally
prohibited in Buenos Aires -- I don't know if that's true, but all I want is
for someone to note down whatever is written on the matzeva. I would be most
grateful for this.

According to the AMIA website, Esther JACUBOWICZ nee SZLAMKOWICZ died in
1986 and is buried in the Tablada cemetery, manzana 258, tablon 786,
sepultura 14. There is a Miguel Enrique JACUBOWICZ buried in the same
gravesite, who I guess must have been her husband.

A while ago I posted a photo that my grandmother had of the family from
Argentina on Viewmate. It's now in the Viewmate archives:

http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/memberadmin/submissionsview.asp?ID=16027

If anyone recognizes the names above or the people in the photo I would
dearly love to hear >from you!

Thanking you,
Miriam Bulwar David-Hay,
Ra'anana, Israel.

Yizkor Book Project, June 2011 #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

As we head out into the long hot summer or the long cold winter, for those
on the other side of the planet, I have to report that June was yet another
"hyperactive" month for the Yizkor Book Project. Happily, quite a large
number of new books and entries were added and notably, a new Translation
project has been added this month for Dej, Romania (Des, Hungary) and we are
looking for financial support of this project in order to allow those of you
with roots there, to read about the people and thriving culture that existed
before the Holocaust. If you feel able to assist in helping to finance this
or any of our currently running translation projects at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
, your help would be much appreciated. The importance of these funds is
clearly illustrated in this month's updates, half of which are projects in
our Translations Funds.

June also saw the addition of a large number of necrologies which not only
immortalize the names of our loved ones but also can provide their family
relationships, professions, dates of birth and more or these people. As
such, these lists are also an invaluable genealogical resource and to assist
in research, the names >from the necrologies are periodically added to the
searchable Yizkor Book Necrology Database at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/ These days, this important but
time-taking work of adding to the database is carried out by Max Heffler,
who also carries out a myriad of other tasks for JewishGen and elsewhere. I
would truly like to spread the heavy load which these days falls heavily on
Max's shoulders alone and am eager to hear >from any of you who have some
time to help in preparing the lists in Excel which are then added to the
database.

DC2011: Family panel Jewish genetic diseases at Genealogy conference #latinamerica

bounce-2248040-772964@...
 

Th-409 "Genzyme Panel: Our Heritage and Our Health"
Thursday, August 18, 2011 >from 2:15 PM - 5:00 PM

1 in 5 Ashkenazi Jews is a carrier of a gene mutation for at least one of 19
preventable diseases for which screening is available. These diseases occur
with greater frequency in the AJ population. Some are life-threatening and
may lead to death in childhood. The most well-known Jewish genetic disease
is Tay-Sachs disease. Since screening for Tay-Sachs was introduced in the
1970's the number of babies with Tay-Sachs born in the Jewish community has
dropped by 90%. Most babies born today with Tay-Sachs disease do not have
Ashekanzi Jewish ancestry.

The panel of family members at the Genealogy conference will introduce you
to some of the other diseases for which we need to raise awareness in the
Jewish community and ensure that all young adults are screened for prior to
starting a family. Since a carrier is healthy and has no outward signs of
being a carrier , a blood test is essential to find out of one is a carrier.
The only other way to find out is after the birth of an affected child.

This panel aims to provide a personal perspective about what some of the
diseases are, how they affect the individual and the impact on the family.
Our panel members are Susan Stillman, the mother of a 13 year old son with
familial dysautonomia; Joy Paul whose niece, Allison, passed away from
Canavan disease. Dana Doheny is the mother of a 30 year old young man with
cystic fibrosis who recently had a lung transplant and Cyndi Frank has
Gaucher disease and will talk to you about living with Gaucher disease and
how it is managed and the impact on her life. Each person will tell their
story and there will be time for a discussion with the panel who will be
happy to answer the questions >from the audience. Faciliators of this panel
will be Gary Frohlich, MS, CGC and Adele Schneider, MD, FACMG.

This program is made possible by an educational grant >from Genzyme
Corporation.

Latin America #LatinAmerica DC2011: Family panel Jewish genetic diseases at Genealogy conference #latinamerica

bounce-2248040-772964@...
 

Th-409 "Genzyme Panel: Our Heritage and Our Health"
Thursday, August 18, 2011 >from 2:15 PM - 5:00 PM

1 in 5 Ashkenazi Jews is a carrier of a gene mutation for at least one of 19
preventable diseases for which screening is available. These diseases occur
with greater frequency in the AJ population. Some are life-threatening and
may lead to death in childhood. The most well-known Jewish genetic disease
is Tay-Sachs disease. Since screening for Tay-Sachs was introduced in the
1970's the number of babies with Tay-Sachs born in the Jewish community has
dropped by 90%. Most babies born today with Tay-Sachs disease do not have
Ashekanzi Jewish ancestry.

The panel of family members at the Genealogy conference will introduce you
to some of the other diseases for which we need to raise awareness in the
Jewish community and ensure that all young adults are screened for prior to
starting a family. Since a carrier is healthy and has no outward signs of
being a carrier , a blood test is essential to find out of one is a carrier.
The only other way to find out is after the birth of an affected child.

This panel aims to provide a personal perspective about what some of the
diseases are, how they affect the individual and the impact on the family.
Our panel members are Susan Stillman, the mother of a 13 year old son with
familial dysautonomia; Joy Paul whose niece, Allison, passed away from
Canavan disease. Dana Doheny is the mother of a 30 year old young man with
cystic fibrosis who recently had a lung transplant and Cyndi Frank has
Gaucher disease and will talk to you about living with Gaucher disease and
how it is managed and the impact on her life. Each person will tell their
story and there will be time for a discussion with the panel who will be
happy to answer the questions >from the audience. Faciliators of this panel
will be Gary Frohlich, MS, CGC and Adele Schneider, MD, FACMG.

This program is made possible by an educational grant >from Genzyme
Corporation.

Yizkor Book Project, June 2011 #lodz #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

As we head out into the long hot summer or the long cold winter, for those
on the other side of the planet, I have to report that June was yet another
"hyperactive" month for the Yizkor Book Project. Happily, quite a large
number of new books and entries were added and notably, a new Translation
project has been added this month for Dej, Romania (Des, Hungary) and we are
looking for financial support of this project in order to allow those of you
with roots there, to read about the people and thriving culture that existed
before the Holocaust. If you feel able to assist in helping to finance this
or any of our currently running translation projects at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
, your help would be much appreciated. The importance of these funds is
clearly illustrated in this month's updates, half of which are projects in
our Translations Funds.

June also saw the addition of a large number of necrologies which not only
immortalize the names of our loved ones but also can provide their family
relationships, professions, dates of birth and more or these people. As
such, these lists are also an invaluable genealogical resource and to assist
in research, the names >from the necrologies are periodically added to the
searchable Yizkor Book Necrology Database at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/ These days, this important but
time-taking work of adding to the database is carried out by Max Heffler,
who also carries out a myriad of other tasks for JewishGen and elsewhere. I
would truly like to spread the heavy load which these days falls heavily on
Max's shoulders alone and am eager to hear >from any of you who have some
time to help in preparing the lists in Excel which are then added to the
database.
