Bukovina business directory, 1907-1913 #romania


Logan Kleinwaks
 

I am pleased to announce that Bukovina is included in a business
directory (with Galicia) dated 1907-1913 that is now searchable and
viewable at http://genealogyindexer.org. This is volume 19b of the
10th edition of Leuchs' "Adressbuch aller Laender der Erde der
Kaufleute, Fabrikanten, Gewerbtreibenden, Gutsbesitzer, ..." The
directory is included in all searches by default. You can restrict
searches to it, excluding other directories, by appending {d667} to
your search term (e.g., Lichtbach {d667}).

The directory is organized mostly by town. To find a town's section
(rather than searching by surname), you can use the town index
beginning at http://genealogyindexer.org/view/190713Leuchs19b/681.
The numbers next to the town names are the printed page numbers, to
which you should add 20 to get approximately the corresponding image
number in the online presentation. You can jump to image number X with
the URL http://genealogyindexer.org/view/190713Leuchs19b/X. If you do
not see your town, go forward or backward using the numerical "Image"
links in the top middle of the page. Alternatively, you can often
find a town's section by using the town's name as your search term
(with {d667}).

Please note that the date 1907-1913 printed on the title page might
refer to the range of publication dates across all volumes of this
edition, and not the time period in which information was collected
for this particular volume. If you know more precisely the date of
publication or compilation of this volume, please contact me. It is
not apparent to me >from the directory itself, unlike some other
editions. Possibly, this is clarified in the first volume, which is
not online.

This directory is available only because an anonymous donor paid for
its digitization by the Moravian Library in Brno through the eBooks on
Demand program (http://books2ebooks.eu), and then provided me with the
images. While the donor does not wish to be publicly acknowledged, I
am sure that many of us will be grateful for this generous gift.
