#Ciechanow #Poland Yizkor Book Project, March 2012 #ciechanow #Poland

bounce-2398274-772951@...
 

Shalom,

Numerically wise and on the surface, the Yizkor book activities during March
seem a little quieter than usual, however volume-wise, this month saw
considerable amounts of material being added to various projects. As a
result, I would like to send out a number of thank-yous to the people behind
some of the March additions.

- This month no fewer than five necrologies were added - Capresti, Moldova;
Csenger, Hungary; Jadow, Poland; Korets, Ukraine; Luninyets, Belarus; and I
would like to thank Shalom Bronstein, Haim Sidor and Yefim Kogan for the
painstaking efforts they put into preparing them as accurately as possible.
- I would also like to thank Yefim Kogan, the Bessarabia SIG Coordinator,
for his encouragement and assistance in pushing forward the translation of
Yizkor books >from the Bessarabian region which contain so much un-tapped
information about the communities there
- This month saw the addition of the Vishnevets, Ukraine book which has been
translated and will be completely uploaded to the Yizkor Book Project over
the coming months. My sincere thanks go out to the people behind this
remarkable effort - Ron Doctor, Ellen Garshick and Sara Mages and for Ron
and Ellen's involvement in organization of the translation of other
Ukrainian Yizkor books.
- A grateful thank you goes out to Debby Applegate for the numerous
translations that she kindly donated to the Ivanava, Belarus (Yanow near
Pinsk) Yizkor book.
- A special thank you goes out to Joyce Field, former Yizkor Book Project
Manager, for compiling a very readable history of the Yizkor Book Project
which is now online and there for your enlightenment at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/YB_History.html

Other than that, some great news - Joel Alpert, the coordinator of the
Yizkor Books in Print Project has informed me that there are now five
English Yizkor books that are available for purchase at "Amazon" and a
further three will be available shortly. Details of these books, where they
can be purchased and other information on this project can be found at:

To begin with, I am very excited to inform you that no less than 5 new
Translation Project funds were initiated over this last month:

- Briceni, Moldova
- Jadow, Poland
- Sierpc, Poland
- Smarhon (Smorgon), Belarus
- Sokyryany (Sekiryani, Bessarabia), Ukraine

Now, for those aren't familiar with the concept, the Translation Funds are
set up to collect donations for the professional translation of the Yizkor
Books. Since finding a skilled volunteer translators capable of taking on
the translation of a whole book is usually not realistic, our recommendation
is to set up a fund, within JewishGen, into which all of those people
interested in a particular community book can help support its translation
and for which donations are tax-exempt for US citizens. So if there is a
book you would like to see translated, please contact me and I'll explain
the ins and outs of how these fund work. Note that you'll find a full list
of our ongoing projects at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
and any financial support you are able to offer would be gratefully
received.

Other good news this last month was the kind donation to the Yizkor Book
Project of the Kielce, Poland book "The Martyrdom and Extermination of the
Jews in Kielce During World War II" by Prof. Krzysztof Urbanski, the first
sections of which have already been added. Please note that in recent times
we have received a number of complete books which are, slowly but surely,
being added into our Yizkor Book projects.

And on completed books, the first books to roll out of our Yizkor Books in
Print Project will very shortly be available. If you wish to know further
about this project, please go to http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html
which has all you would like to know about this steadily growing project.

Before detailing last month's statistics, I would personally like to wish
you all a joyful Purim and suggest that if you have a chance, read some of
the many recollections of this holiday in our online Yizkor Books. In some
small way, we are keeping up the fond memories of this vibrant Jewish
holiday in those multitudes of communities that no longer exist.

Harvey-

JRI-Poland lists dozens of ZYLBER/SILBER records, some going back to
the 1830's (I see one death record >from that time. If its for an
older man, then your family could be traced well back into the 1700's).

If you haven't used this resource yet, you will want to try.

Also, don't limit yourself to Ciechanow. Many families moved around a
lot in that era, due to marriages, search for work, etc.

My own families >from Ciechanow were ANTKES, SZTERDYNER ,
BURSZTEJN and they married into the LAKRYC, ROTSZTEJN, MAKOWSKI and
other families of the region.

Hello all,

I am researching my paternal grandfathers family and have traced
them back to Ciechanow.

My family name is SILVER/SILBER/ZYLBER. Moishe/Morris,[my gfather],
came to England in 1901. His brother, Noson/Nathan went to USA via
Canada in 1900. My ggparents, Yitzchok & Golda had a small apple
orchard. I have no information of uncles, aunts or cousins etc.

My name is Harvey Silver. I live in Bedfordshire, England.

Dear Harvey,

Although my father and his family came >from Ciechanow, their name was
Goldstein (Goldszein/Goljtein), so I can't help you on this occasion. I
hope you have more luck >from other members of the Ciechanow group. I have
visited Ciechanow and there are many family records in the Town Hall - staff
are very willing to help personal callers but you would need someone to help
with the language. If you decide to visit Poland and want information
about a Jewish/Polish organisation based in Warsaw who help visitors in this
regard, please let me know.

Best wishes, Brenda Soskin (I live in Essex!!)

#Ciechanow #Poland Yizkor Books In Print Project volunteers with graphic skills #ciechanow #Poland

Lance Ackerfeld
 

Shalom,

The "Yizkor Books In Print Project" is looking for about 5 volunteers to
help process images for new books to be published. The volunteers should
have Photoshop or similar software to be able to open PDF files with images,
copy and crop the images of photographs, illustrations, maps and create JPEG
files of the individual images, so that they can be inserted into the text
files by our layout volunteers. If you can devote a minimum of an hour or
two a week to help with this project, please contact Joel Alpert,
Coordinator of the Yizkor Books in Print Project whose address can be found
at http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html

Background: We are fortunate to have just reached an agreement with the
National Yiddish Book Center in Holyoke, MA and the New York Public Library,
for use of their PDF files of high resolution scanned images of photos and
maps and illustrations of their huge collection of Yizkor Books. This will
insure high quality reproduction of the images >from the original Yizkor
Books.

All the best,
Lance Ackerfeld
Yizkor Book Project Manager

#Ciechanow #Poland Yizkor Book Project, January 2012 #ciechanow #Poland

bounce-2363721-772951@...
 

Shalom,

Here we are again, at the end of the month, the activity in which can be
categorized with some endings and also some new beginnings in our Yizkor
Book Project.

As far as endings go, this last month we completely uploaded all the entries
received >from the "Litvak Heritage" series that were generously donated by
Joel Alpert and Josef Rosin. Together with the existing online entries, I
believe we now have a remarkable amount of information on a myriad of
Lithuanian communities but we certainly aren't stopping here and even more
translations are going on for these and other communities, as we "speak".

Amongst the new beginnings that took place this month was the grateful
receipt of the complete translation of two books and, hopefully, they will
be totally online within the next few weeks. The first donation is for the
Csenger, Hungary Yizkor Book which was kindly donated by Stanley and Renee
Fishkind. The second book, in English and Polish, is for a book on Lopuszno,
Poland and was kindly donated by its editors - Marek Maciagowski and Yaacov
Kotlicki.

Apart >from these, a number of new projects were begun and if you would like
to get involved in any one of the projects listed below or if there is a
project that has been something you have been considering and you don't know
how to begin, please contact me and I'll assist you, however I can.

Another new exciting beginning is the first Yizkor Book translation to come
out as a hard copy through our Yizkor Books in Print Project which is being
led by the untiring and resourceful Joel Alpert and the many volunteers
working with him. The first book is the 'Destruction of Czenstochow' Yizkor
book for Czestochowa, Poland and as soon as it's made available, we will let
you know where it may be purchased.

In the meantime, if you are a coordinator who has a completely translated
Yizkor book, we invite you to contact Joel whose contact information can be
found at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html Of course, if you would
like to be involved in this project in any way, he would also like to hear
from you and you can see what tasks are required on this same page.
The final new beginnings were the addition of the Halmeu, Romania Yizkor
book to our list of Translation Funds and in the near future it will be
joined by the Serock, Poland and Sarny, Ukraine Yizkor Book Projects. Note
that a very positive way of helping to see translations placed online is by
supporting this project or one of the many Translation Funds which have been
set up to bring about the professional translation of the Yizkor books. If
you feel able to support this effort, please go to the Yizkor Book
JewishGen-erosity page:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
to learn about the Translation Funds currently underway.

Dear friends,

Our program is expanding. Every day we receive new exciting proposals. At
least 200 hours of lectures and meetings are already scheduled. No time to
be bored whatever your area of interest or your language : every hour you
will find at least a lecture, a workshop, a film or a SIG meeting concerning
this area. And if you really do not find any, why not visit the resource
room, the vendor's room or one of our exhibitions?

Make sure to be there on Sunday morning and not to leave until Wednesday
evening because our program will start at top speed and the latest lecture
on Wednesday night will be no less exciting than the first ones or the ones
proposed on Monday or Tuesday.
