Re: The town of "Shalat" Austria #general

Alexander Sharon <a.sharon@...>
 

Pamela,

I believe that town in question is Skalat, currently located in the
western part of Ukraine. Town was indeed part of the Tarnopol region of
the Galicia Crown Territory located within the Austro-Hungarian Empire
till 1918.

If you would like to learn more about the town Jewish history you should
visit Suchostav Region Research Group (SRRG), website hosted by the
JewishGen.

Dear Genners:

I just received the 1919 NYC marriage certificate of my grandparents in
which my grandfather, Samuel Greenhaut, lists his town/country of birth
as: "Shalat, Austria."


Success and failure #general

Stephen G. Esrati <steve@...>
 

The thread about Lauritz Melchior (which I did not initiate) brought
success. I found a cousin in Israel, one I did not even know existed.
That's the success story.
But then came the failure. He sent me a gedcom file about our family
and I was unable to open it. He said the same thing had also happened
with a new cousin in South America.
He uses Ilanot, a Jewish genealogy program. Apparently he has been
able to post his gedcom on the Family Tree of the Jewish People. But
I am totally stymied. How do I convert an Ilanot gedcom file into a
form recognizable by my Reunion 7 program?

Pamela:

Alexander Sharon and Naomi Fatouros have already identified your town as
Skalat, which was in the Galician province of the Austrian Empire prior to
WWI. My father was >from the area and always told me he was born in Austria.

Israel Pickholtz is the "Town Leader" for Skalat and the web page for
Skalat is at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/ShtetLinks/Suchostav/Skalat/Skalat.html>.

Jewish Records Indexing - Poland has embarked on a project to index all
the vital records housed at the AGAD Archives in Warsaw for 82 towns in
the Eastern part of Galicia, including Skalat. Skalat is one of first
thirteen towns to have their records indexed. This project will be a great
resource to all Skalat researchers. You will be able to search the
Archives >from your home and order the actual records >from the AGAD
Archives. The Archives houses Skalat birth, marriage, and death records
covering a period of 1859-1899. For more information on this project,
please see the webpage at <http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/agad/>.
Researchers should also know that the Skalat vital records include those
for smaller towns and villages near Skalat.

For news on this project, keep tuned to this forum. If you are interested
in helping with the project, please contact me.

Announcing: Lodz Street Names Project! #general

Seflaum@...
 

Announcing: Lodz Street Names Project
A New JewishGen Research Division Project!

Before World War II, the city of Lodz had the second largest Jewish
population of any city in Europe - over 200,000 - and the Lodz ghetto
was the second largest Polish ghetto in existence. Many of us with roots
in Lodz, or with family incarcerated in the Lodz ghetto >from many
surrounding areas, are now able to trace the addresses where our ancestors
once lived. This has been made possible through the extensive business
directories or ghetto records now available, or perhaps through your own
family records. Over the past century, many of the street names in Lodz
have changed at least once, if not up to five times. We now have the
opportunity to purchase an index of all the street name changes in Lodz
over the past 86 years!

o What is the Lodz Street Name Index?

The Lodz Street Name Index was created by a noted professional researcher
living in Lodz. The index includes more than 550 Lodz streets and the
changes in their names at six points in time: 1913, 1925, 1933, 1939
(including the Lodz ghetto), 1945 and 1989 (after the fall of Communism).

For example, perhaps you found your family's business address on
"Aleksandrowska Street" in 1929. The index will tell you that street is
known today as "Limanowskiego Street." If you are tracing someone who
lived in the Lodz ghetto on "Baluter Ring," the index will tell you that
street is now known as "Rynek Balucki." See a sample of the street name
index at:
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Lodz/street.htm

The Lodz Street Name Index will be available online at the JewishGen web
site once funding for this project is completed.

o How do I contribute?

The budget for this important project is US $800. This is a bargain,
considering the amount of information that will become available. If you
would like to see this index become available to you and other
researchers, please consider a donation today. To make a donation, please
access:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/Research.html

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Re: Rabbi Chaim Yehuda Leib Tiktinski - Mir #general

NFatouros@...
 

In part of her 01-25-01 message Louise Glasspoole asked whether there
was a link between the name "Novogrusky" and the name "Tiktinski." One
answer is that they are both toponyms (place names).

"Novogrudsky" would the toponym for someone >from Novogrod which is north-
east of Warsaw. "Tiktinsky" would be the toponym for someone >from Tiktin
(Tykocin) which is north-west of Bialystok.

In her 01-25-01 message Pamela Weissberger said her grandparents' 1919
NYC marriage certificate showed her grandfather's place of birth as
"Shalat." Perhaps this was a miswriting or misreading for the town of
Skalat in the area of Tarnopol. There are two memorial (yizkor) books for
this town. Also, Jewishgenner Israel Pickholtz has an interest in Skalat
and if I remember rightly he has a link to a Skalat list at his website.

For more information about Skalat, Ms. Weisberger should scroll down

in "Skalat" in the search box that will appear.
