Gesher Galicia SIG
 

Please join me for a four-part online program hosted by Gratz College and open to participants from around the world. For beginners and seasoned family-history researchers, this adult continuing education course will explore the social and cultural transformation of Galician Jewry, drawing on unique material.

DATES: July 5, 7, 12, 14, 2022
1:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m. US ET*
* All classes are recorded. A link will be sent out to the registered participants to view the class if you missed it live.

https://tinyurl.com/9hp5jav2

Class size is limited, so register early! The Gratz College general tuition: $135. Gesher Galicia members can use the tuition discount.

SYNOPSIS: Dr. Andrew Zalewski, author of two books on Galicia, brings history to life while answering questions like: What drove Jews to have a voice in modern society? How did they respond to new ideas from inside and outside their community? Which laws misfired on the Jews’ path to civil integration?

We explore these and other questions with a focus on Galicia, but also move beyond its borders—to Austria, Germany, Italy, Poland, and Russia—to consider Jewish identity and experience more broadly. The course is illustrated by unique records, maps, and newly discovered documents.

Re: Help interpreting info from all Galicia gatabase #galicia

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

A correction to a sentence I wrote in my earlier message on this thread. I had written:
"Of course, even without this update, the scans of the index book are available on the All Galicia Database, for Gesher Galicia members who are logged into the site to view."
The scans of the book (the Żurawno marriage index book 1901-1936) are not on the All Galicia Database, but instead are available - for Gesher Galicia members only - as link from our online inventory, which is at: www.geshergalicia.org/inventory/ .

A food history of Manhattan’s Lower East Side #usa

Bruce Drake
 

I thought this article would be of interest here, because so many ancestors of Jews who came to the city lived on the Lower East Side and food — what they ate and the names of places they ate at — would ring a bell with many and provide context for the lives they lived. I gleaned a few leads for my own family.

Matzeva for a plot in Lodz cemetery #lodz

rosibal
 

I was wondering how to go about ordering and installing a matzeva in the Lodz Jewish Cemetery. I'm asking on behalf of a relative whose grandmother is buried there and for which no marker exists (died January 1939). I already know the plot location.

Any suggestions will be welcome. Maybe some of you had done this.

Thank you in advance,

Re: Hebrew Reformatory, Plainview NY Early 1900's #usa

There was the Hawthorne School of the Jewish Protectory and Aid Society was formally opened yesterday in the assembly hall of the school at Hawthorne, Westchester County. The school will be used as a reformatory for the Jewish boys who have been sentenced in the Children's Court.  It was located in Pleasantville.  It opened in 1907.

I found a relative there in the 1940 census.
This might be what you are looking for.

ViewMate Translation Request -- German #translation

jedbrickner@...
 

A have a  challenging question. Pasted below is a Viewmate link to  two birth deeds written, I am told, in Alsatian German. I am hopeful that one of them is the record of the birth of my 3x great grandfather who was known in 1805 as Simon (and in 1808 as Simon Meyer). The date of his birth was 15 Frimaire XIV (6 December 1805). If you can easily tell me that *neither* of these is correct, that would be helpful. If one of them is correct than a translation of as much as possible would be very much appreciated. Thank you!

Hi Caroline,

 

Thank you very much for providing these links.

 

I have used the reading aid you shared and found the following file https://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C11047859

 

I see that the file is closed until 2097. Is there a way to change this and make it available earlier?

 

Given there is a naturalization application (the document above) why can I not locate a certificate for this person?

 

I have found records proving that this person died in England on 12-Feb-1978 (included in the UK death index for Q1/1978 & probate calendar of 1980)

 

Thank you,

Re: Tordobis #ukraine

I am not sure if this helps, but there is reference to Tordobis, Russia online at https://murderpedia.org/male.B/b/bolbermorris1.htm
As it appears Russia and Ukraine keep changing ownership of realestate, this might be a reference to the town you are looking for.
Best of luck to you.

Re: Hebrew Reformatory, Plainview NY Early 1900's #usa

Sherri Bobish
 

Hi Robin,

You might try looking at old city directories for Plainview, Long Island.  The local library may have old copies on microfilm. 
https://poblib.org/index.php?option=com_dropfiles&task=onedrive.onedrivesync
I haven't found one on-line  (including Ancestry.)  Maybe one is online and I just couldn't locate it.  If someone knows of one on-line can they please post a link?

Old city directories usually have listings by type of business.  Reformatories were sometimes called "training schools."

I am assuming that they lived in Manhattan.  NYC Municipal Records has:
https://www.familysearch.org/en/wiki/New_York_City_Department_of_Records
"The criminal justice records 1684-1966 are the largest and most comprehensive collection of their type in the English-speaking world."

There may be a card regarding his arrest / trial.  Many years ago I found there my uncle's Sing Sing admission card from the 1910's.

The 1908 American Jewish Yearbook may list the reformatory or training school name, if it was a Jewish run institution.
http://www.ajcarchives.org/main.php?GroupingId=10040

If he was still residing at the reformatory in 1910 than you should find him listed in the 1910 Federal Census as an inmate.  Try searching his name.
https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/1727033

You can search his name in old digitized newspapers at this free site:
https://fultonhistory.com/Fulton.html
This site has a large collection of newspapers, and many from NYC and also small towns all across the state.  You might find a notice of his arrest or trial.
