In relation to an earlier inquiry, the best book which describes the
operations of Nazi-era German prisons is "Hitler's Prisons, Legal Terror in
Nazi Germany" by Nikolaus Wachsmann, Yale University Press 2004.

Among others, it describes the operations of the Brandenburg and Ploetzensee
prisons.

DC2011 - Last Chance to Register for All Meals and Tours #general

31st IAJGS Conference <dc2011_conference@...>
 

Today -- Sunday, July 31, 2011 is the last chance to register for all meals
and Embassy Experiences for the 31st IAJGS International Conference on
Jewish Genealogy to take place in Washington, DC >from August 14-19.

If you have been putting off registering for the conference, you should be
aware that you may register on-site at the conference hotel, but the entire
6-day experience will cost you $30 more than if you register today. Why
wait?

If you could not make up your mind about which SIG meal you want to attend,
you had better make the decision, because if you do not, you will not be
able to attend these stimulating events. We have to turn in numbers to the
hotel caterer on Monday. There can be no exceptions.

If you have been deliberating about attending a Breakfast with the Experts,
you should know that we have limited these sessions to 35 participants. You
will enjoy a sumptuous buffet and then join the experts as they answer
questions. A great way to get top-notch guidance on brick-walls and other
issues.

And the GALA......a wonderful evening with a a variety of delicious foods
served at "stations." The guest speaker for the evening will be the 10th
Archivist of the U.S., David Ferriero. His comments will be followed by
IAJGS awards presentations. The evening will conclude with a the
internationally known performers, the Robyn Helzner Trio. This even is $65
per person and represents a significant reduction in the cost over previous
years.

So, act without hesitation and register for the conference if you have not
already done so. And by all means, register for the special meal events.

See you at the Grand Hyatt in Washington, DC >from August 14-19.

Yizkor Book Project, July 2011 #general

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.

Update on the All Galicia Database #general

Pamela Weisberger
 

Gesher Galicia recently announced the launch of our new search engine,
The All Galicia Database (AGD), and already people are making discoveries
which are taking their research in entirely new directions.

The database is at: http://www.search.geshergalicia.org and features
172,954 records >from 41 different data sources, covering everything
from birth, death, marriage and divorce records to phone books, school
and landowner records, all >from the former Austro-Hungarian province
of Galicia.

A few additions and clarifications are in order:

I neglected to thank one very important member of our team. Tony Kahane
of London, England, coordinated the extraordinary indexing work for
Zbaraz, Ukraine which is still continuing. Kudos to Tony and also to Brooke
Schreier Ganz for the creation of the search engine.

Surnames in birth records--why are some missing?

When searching birth records, you'll notice many results with "No
Surname" listed. Many Galician marriages were religious ones, not
civil, and therefore not recognized by the Austrian government.
Consequently, the child would be registered as illegitimate and no
surname noted in the record. By looking at the parents surnames, you
can deduce the child's, but sometimes the father is missing >from the
record, and only the mother -- and mother's surname -- is listed, so
be sure to also search based on the maiden name. Also keep in mind
that many Galician children ended up keeping the mother's maiden name,
adding to the confusion.

Can I search/sort by town field? Can I limit my searches to certain years?

There is no search button by town or year, but after searching by
surname, when the results come up, look at the left-hand column.
Under "Record Sources" it will display the databases that have those
names and the number of results. By clicking on the town or database
of interest, the results will then be sorted by town. Under the
left-hand "Year" heading you can choose to view records for a specific
year. And don't forget to click on the + plus sign to view the
drop-down details on each record. The icon to the far right of each
record tells you quickly the record type.

Coming soon will be the following completed indexes:

Birth records for Zbarazh -- 1897 and 1899
Cadastral (Property) Records for Rohatyn -- 1846
Land records for Buczacz -- 1879
Land records for Grzymalow -- 19th Century
Land records for Krystynopol -- 1784
Residents of apartment buildings in the Jewish Quarter of Lviv -- late
19th and early 20th Centuries
School records for Zbarazh -- 1911-12; 1912-13; 1913-14; 1927-28

We are in the process of indexing data >from property, voter and land
records already obtained by Gesher Galicia, along with the remainder
of the still-being-transcribed birth, marriage, and death records from
Lviv...and more!

Why should you check the All Galicia Database and be curious about
Galician records if your family came >from Russia, Congress Poland,
Lithuania, Bukovina, Hungary, Bohemia or Romania?

The Jewish population moved around a lot, even in the 19th century.
Historically there was always a relationship between Hungary and
Galicia. Families >from Czernovitz routinely traveled to places like
Lviv (Lwow, Lemberg) or Brody. Bohemia and Moravia were part of the
same Austro-Hungarian Empire as Galicia and people traversed the land
surprisingly often for trade, match-making, and business. LItvaks might
have had issue with Galitzianers, but the famous stories of ill-fated
marriage pairings abound. Train travel was relatively easy then and
sometimes en route to America or England families left their place of
birth for a temporary way-station in other cities.

Sally Bruckheimer just wrote, after searching the AGD that there are
usually no "clear answers in genealogy." She believed that her LINDER
family had been >from Odessa and Berdichev, but found many people with
that surname living in Lviv, 350 miles away, so now she has new paths
to explore. Check out your surnames on the All Galicia Database, and
see where it might lead you too!

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Yizkor Book Project, July 2011 #general

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.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Update on the All Galicia Database #general

Pamela Weisberger
 

Gesher Galicia recently announced the launch of our new search engine,
The All Galicia Database (AGD), and already people are making discoveries
which are taking their research in entirely new directions.

The database is at: http://www.search.geshergalicia.org and features
172,954 records >from 41 different data sources, covering everything
from birth, death, marriage and divorce records to phone books, school
and landowner records, all >from the former Austro-Hungarian province
of Galicia.

A few additions and clarifications are in order:

Yizkor Book Project, July 2011 #poland

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.

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.

Yizkor Book Project, July 2011 #poland #lodz

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.

As far as the July figures go, during this last month we have added these 9
new projects:
