various repositories throughout Hungary. Go to
https://wiki.familysearch.org/en/Hungary_Civil_Registration_(FamilySearch_Historical_Records)

Yizkor Book Project, July 2011 #latinamerica

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Whilst the Guinness Book of Records Team are seemingly quite apathetic to
our impressive figure of 73 new books, entries and updated projects during
July 2011, we at the Yizkor Book Project, are more than very pleased with
this achievement.

Indeed, there were a number of milestones that took place this month as we
completed adding in the last set of the 18 Kremenets booklets (details
below), thanks to the dedicated coordination of Ron Doctor, the meticulous
editing by Ellen Garshick and excellent translations by Sara Mages, Thia
Persoff and others. The work on these booklets continues as we speak and we
look forward to seeing further additions to them as time goes on.

This month also saw the culmination of two online Yizkor Books. The first
being the "Memorial Book of the Community of Ostrow-Mazowiecka" book which
was coordinated by Judie Goldstein, who also did the bulk of the
translations in this project and who deserves a heartfelt "yashar koach" for
seeing the project through to its successful completion. I would also like
to thank Stanley Diamond for his important assistance behind the scenes and
particularly, in helping assemble the images >from the book to be placed
online. Quite a team!

The other book that was completely placed online, this month, was "The
destruction of Proskurov", the translation of which, was kindly donated by
Anne M. Brennan.

And speaking of completed books, the Yizkor Book Project recently set up the
Yizkor Books in Print initiative under the guiding wings of Joel Alpert to
prepare hard copies of the books that have completely translated within the
Yizkor Book Project. After sending out a call for volunteers, Joel and I
were thrilled by the messages of support that we received for this
initiative and also the encouraging response >from volunteers who offered
their skills in the myriad tasks required for this project. However, in
spite of the many offers of assistance that we did receive, there are a
still a number of positions that we still need to fill:

- A Publicity Specialist to take care of publicizing these books in as many
directions as possible.
- Document Coordinator to submit applications for Copyrights, Library of
Congress Numbers, ISBN numbers and keeping track of submittals and
responses.

If one of these positions suits your abilities or you would like to learn
more about this new initiative, please look at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html If you do find a task that you
would like to take on, please contact Joel Alpert via the link appearing on
this page.

And on responses, I was also pleased by the incredible response for my cry
for html help and our ranks have now been joined by Jason Hallgarten who has
already shown himself to be an important boost to our little team. There are
a number of others who have shown interest and are trying their hand at
preparing our web pages and we look forward to expanding our team even
further. We also received encouraging response >from a number of volunteers
who are have now begun helping prepare the necrology database files - help
that was sorely needed.

New Edition of SUCCESS! STORIES #latinamerica

Phyllis Kramer
 

We are pleased to announce the publication of the latest issue of JewishGen's
SUCCESS! STORIES webzine. You can access these stories >from the "About Us"
button on our homepage or by following this link:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen/Testimonials/ .

Our new issue has two articles that complement each other in interesting ways.
Unlike many of our past stories, in which connections were made using the
JewishGen Family Finder or through queries and letters posted on the discussion
lists, these two tales, by Bill Schechter and Jerry Touger, feature family
reunions that came about through more varied research, but in each case also
using resources found on JewishGen.

We're sure you'll be inspired by these stories and we encourage you to send our
volunteer editors, Meredith Hoffman and Nancy Siegel, your own success stories
for possible future publication. Their email address is:
success@lyris.jewishgen.org.

Latin America #LatinAmerica New Edition of SUCCESS! STORIES #latinamerica

Phyllis Kramer
 

We are pleased to announce the publication of the latest issue of JewishGen's
SUCCESS! STORIES webzine. You can access these stories >from the "About Us"
button on our homepage or by following this link:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen/Testimonials/ .

Our new issue has two articles that complement each other in interesting ways.
Unlike many of our past stories, in which connections were made using the
JewishGen Family Finder or through queries and letters posted on the discussion
lists, these two tales, by Bill Schechter and Jerry Touger, feature family
reunions that came about through more varied research, but in each case also
using resources found on JewishGen.

We're sure you'll be inspired by these stories and we encourage you to send our
volunteer editors, Meredith Hoffman and Nancy Siegel, your own success stories
for possible future publication. Their email address is:
success@lyris.jewishgen.org.

Baruch Menchel Stern of Lima, Peru #latinamerica

meretz
 

I search for information on my late uncle Baruch Menchel/Menczel Stern.
Baruch Menchel Stern was born 1906 in Uscie Biskupie, Galicia, then under
Austrian rule, later Poland and now Ukraine. My father Jacob Menchel Stern,
1908-1938, was his younger brother.
Baruch Menchel Stern immigrated to Palestine during the 1920s, moved after a
few years to the US and later went to live in Latin America. My father died
very young and many members of our family died in Poland during the
Holocaust. Contact with Baruch Menchel was lost completely. Just recently
was I lucky to find in Jewishgen a website with an index of the Jewish
cemetery in Lima, including photos of many gravestones. Among them I found,
to my great surprise, the grave of Baruch Menchel Stern, 1906-1970. I am
positive that this is the grave of my father's lost brother. I am very much
interested to find more details of my late uncle's life and family and
certainly getting in touch with his wife, if she is still alive as well as
with possible descendants. I will be most grateful for any information or
assistance to further my research. I have already tried to contact several
Jewish institutions in Lima, but these have not been responsive.
Thanking you in advance for any help,
Nurith Meretz, Israel

Conference Recording Announcement #latinamerica

31st IAJGS Conference <dc2011_conference@...>
 

We've arranged with the well-regarded, experienced digital media company
Conference Resource LLC to record at least 121 conference sessions and sell
those recordings during and after the conference. The recordings will be in
the versatile MP3 format (that runs on PCs, Macs, and any MP3 audio device
with a USB port). They will be issued in a plastic case with a custom
printed label. There are two ways to purchase the sessions that have been
approved for recording:

- Individual Sessions: in CD format at $9.95 each if purchased during
the conference, or $11.95 plus shipping and handling (S&H) after the
conference

- Full Set of Sessions: in Flash Drive format at $134 each if purchased
prior to the conference, $149 at the conference, or the same price plus S&H
after the conference.

Why buy such recordings? By having them, you can benefit even more >from the
conference and advance your family history research, as follows:

If you're attending the full conference – you can take part in other
conference events and still have access to sessions that occurred on the
day(s) or hours that you did other things (such as researching your roots at
the Resource Center, attending SIG or BOF meetings, networking, visiting
vendors, or enjoying film screenings and discussions with directors of
award-winning films). What a great way to flexibly plan your conference
week!

If you're attending part of the conference -- you can purchase individual
sessions that matter to you and were held on the day(s) you couldn't attend,
and listen to them at your own convenience.

If you weren't able to attend any part of the conference -- you can purchase
and listen at your own convenience to the session(s) that matter most to
you, or to the entire set of recorded conference sessions.

And all these options share three other key benefits --
1. You'll have ALL the spoken text of the speaker(s) at the sessions you've
chosen to purchase. That way, if you attended a session that was recorded,
and the notes you took during the session weren't clear or if you missed
something -- you can just listen to the session again, and verify or fill-in
those facts!

2. Another plus is that you'll also be able to listen to a session and a
given speaker more than once, if a concept you've heard isn't somehow clear
but is very important to you.

3. You'll also have these sessions and/or the full set of recorded sessions
as a reference tool in advancing your research, whenever it becomes helpful
to do so.

This conference's organizers didn't create the concept of selling recorded
sessions -- this has been a favorite purchase of conference attendees for
quite a few years, it's considered so valuable!

Contact conference Resource LLC at www.myconferenceresource.com, or look for
their sales table at the conference.

Remember - Online registration ends on July 31. Last chance to sign up for
all meal events and Embassy visits!

Save $$$ over on-site registration.
