Your skepticism is well justified. There were no post-mortems. As a matter
of actual fact: even the dates listed are not always accurate. The reporting
inmates [building elder, room elder, barracks elder] often had the corpse
removed but did not list the death accurately in order to collect the food
rations of the deceased fellow inmate for themselves.

In Kamelhar's biography of the Nodah Biyehuda (if my memory serves
me well) it is explained that when the Duchy of Galicia was absorbed

Eventually, due to the feuding about this issue, the plan was
dropped. Perhaps this was in fact the same Rabbi BERNSTEIN.
Prompted by the contribution sent in by R' A. Marmorstein, I would
like to correct and amplify an earlier posting of mine about this
18th Century Galician Rabbi Aryeh Leib BERNSTEIN.

Firstly a brief historical note. When, in 1772, Galicia came under
Austrian rule the Empress Maria Theresa decided that the Province
should have a chief Rabbi. There were several contenders including
R' Yechezkel Landau of Prague. The appointee, in 1776 was the above
R' BERNSTEIN. He was the first and last Chief Rabbi of Galicia,
having retained his position until 1786, when the whole arrangement
folded.

Who was Rabbi BERNSTEIN? Besides his eminence in Torah, he had very
eminent forbears and descendants. He possessed great wealth and his
life was not untroubled.

His father, Yissochor Berish was a grandson (via his mother) of
R' Yitzchok BABAD, the last being a grandson of the R' Heschel of
Krakow. This connection gave him a cousinship to the LANDAUs.

He was born around 1690 and grew up in Brody. There was a great
scandal about his wife, who was suspected of adultery with more than
one lover. This cause celebre led to rumpus and a long responsum in
the Noda Beyehuda, regarding which even the Baal Shem Tov was
involved.

Details of his marriage and (some) of his descendants can be found
in Neil Rosenstein's "Unbroken Chain" (2nd Ed. pp.983/4).

More details of his turbulent life (his divorce), his ancestry and
family can be found in the following Hebrew works:
(1) Galician Ency by Meir Wunder Vol. 1
(2) Kisvei Geonim by Horowitz
(3) Toldos Brody by Gelber
(4) Bio. of the Noda Beyehuda (above R' LANDAU) by Kammelhar.

Meir Wunder also gives a reference to an article in the periodical
Sinai, which I do not possess.

There is a lot more to write but this is a Genealogical not a
biographical forum.

In a note today Anne Hart has asked for information as to when the Jews
migrated to Romania. I have answered her privately, but thought that a
reminder to the List was not amiss.

For general historical background about the Jews in any country or area
do not overlook the obvious. The Encylopedia Judaica, for example is an
excellent source. In addition, there is the older Jewish Encyclopedia
online at: http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/index.jsp Enter the
search term of Rumania (older spelling), for historical background
information about the arrival and history of the Jews in Romania.

Ordering Records from Polish State Archives -- Expansion of JRI-Poland's New System #general

Mark Halpern <willie46@...>
 

Jewish Records Indexing - Poland is very pleased to announce that
agreement has been reached with the Polish State Archives (PSA)
to extend the new online order processing system - the "Shopping
Basket System" - to thirteen additional Archives and their
branches effective on November 4, 2003.

Since late last year, the JRI-Poland Order Processing Center has
worked with the State Archives in Bialystok and its Lomza branch
testing a Shopping Basket system for ordering copies of vital
records indexed by JRI-Poland/PSA Projects. This pilot project
has been very successful and the system will now be expanded to
the following Archives and their branches.

AGAD - Central Archive of Historical Records
Bialystok
Lomza Branch
Czestochowa
Kalisz
Krakow
Lublin
Lodz
Poznan
Przemysl
Rzeszow
Siedlce
Suwalki
Warsaw
Grodzisk Mazowiecki Branch
Gora Kalwaria Branch
Lowicz Branch
Mlawa Branch
Pultusk Branch
Zamosc

We expect that the remaining Archives and branches, not part of
the Shopping Basket system as of November 4, 2003, will be added
in early 2004. This includes Kielce and its Pinczow, Sandomierz
and Starachowice branches, Piotrkow Trybunalski and its Tomaszow
Mazowiecki branch, Plock and its Leczycz branch, Radom, and Torun
and its Wloclawek branch.

The system allows researchers to create a "Shopping Basket" for
copies of records to order by clicking on index entries in the
results webpage of a JRI-Poland database search. Orders can be
saved and subsequently amended, modified, or deleted. When a
researcher is ready to order, payment can be made by credit card
(Visa or MasterCard) or US Dollar check or money order. There is
absolutely no danger that an order can be mistakenly placed while
online. At this time, researchers must mail in their order and
payment for the order to become official.

A Step-by-Step Tutorial of the system can be found at
http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/psa/psabasketinst.htm.

Each record ordered will cost the researcher $10. However, there
is a minimum charge per branch of $15. (Therefore, if you order
one record >from Lodz and one >from Pultusk, the total charge will
be $30.) JRI-Poland will receive researcher payments and arrange
for periodic bank transfers in Polish currency to each Polish
Archive branch.

Here are a few of the major features of the Shopping Basket
system:

* Records of interest are selected online, creating an order. You
simply point and click on the desired record index and it is
added to your shopping basket. This only applies to records
indexed as part of a PSA project. Records indexed >from LDS
microfilms will not be clickable and cannot be ordered using this
system.

* Your shopping basket can include orders >from more than one PSA
Archive or branch. Separate orders are automatically created for
each branch.

* Researchers print and snail mail orders and payment to the
JRI-Poland PSA Order Processing Center in Merion Station,
Pennsylvania, USA. A printable form for credit card payment can
be accessed by clicking a link on the Order Form.

* The Order Processing Center electronically transmits the
order(s) to the Archive(s). Within 30 days each Archive will send
copies by registered or priority airmail directly to the
researcher.

If you previously ordered records >from the AGAD Archives through
the JRI-Poland AGAD Order Center, you will now be using the
Shopping Basket System. All AGAD orders sent to the AGAD Order
Center and postmarked November 3, 2003 or before will be
processed by the AGAD Order Center. Orders postmarked November 4,
2003 or later will be returned to the researcher for submission
to the JRI-Poland PSA Order Processing Center using the Shopping
Basket system.

The current "Request for Quotation" system will be eliminated as
of November 4, 2003. Actually, we suggest that researchers cease
use of the Request for Quotation system immediately. The
objective of JRI-Poland and PSA is to have only one ordering
system that works efficiently for researchers. However, some of
the Archives and branches are not ready to join the shopping
basket system on November 4, 2003. These Archives and branches
will be added to the shopping basket system as soon as practical.
Please be patient and hold your orders for these Archives and
branches until you see the announcement in this forum pertaining
to that branch.

We at JRI-Poland are excited to introduce this user-friendly
system and we thank the management of the Polish State Archives
and their branches for their cooperation and their enthusiastic
role in the development of this system.

Our appreciation is also extended to our many volunteers who have
helped make the JRI-Poland / PSA project a success and to all the
researchers whose generosity has made possible the remarkable
growth of our database.

All of us at JRI-Poland wish you continued success in your
research. We hope the use of the Shopping Basket system will lead
to many exciting discoveries in the future.

Mark Halpern
Director, PSA Order Processing Center


List of Jewish families in Brzesko,Galicia #general

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Genners and Galicianers,
I decided to compose a list of all the Jewish surnames

in Brzesko(Briegel),Galicia.Though I do not have the
exact matrix required by the diffrent JG research
groups I believe the task of just listing them is a
simple one and later on, someone better computer savvy
than myself, will be able to put it in the proper
form.
The Jewish population of Brzesko until 1939 was around
2,500-3,000 people.Considering that an average family
was composed of around 7 members(parents +5
children)we may assume that there were about 500-600
Jewish households.Since each of the parents came more
or less >from the same size of family(one of 5-6
sibblings) we may assume again that we have a stock of
about 100 surnames.I know that it looks like a
shoemaker's account but I'll give it a try.
I intend to extract the information >from the 1929
Polish Business Directory,the 1891 Galicia Business
Directory,EIDB,JGFF, Yad Vashem,Auschwitz listings
,Brzesko's survivors and personal knowledge.
Please email me privately surnames which you know
beyond those in the Business directories,EIDB,JGFF.

Goldberg/Garbarski -N.Y -needle in a haystack! #general

maurgold <maurgold@...>
 

In twenty two years searching these elusive GOLDBERG/GARBARSKI's do not fit
into into any research group in operation today. This will be my last
attempt before giving it away.

I have a GOLDBERG who was either Myer Isaac, Jacob Isaac or plain old Isaac.
Along with his wife Reva/Rachel settled in Brooklyn between 1899? and 1906
from Sheffield, Yorkshire. He went first but no trace of him in the E.I.R.
They had 7 children - Isaac, Anna/Annie, Sarah, Solomon/Sols, Diana, Philip
and Lena. The last six born in Sheffield between 1882 and 1896.

Jacob/Isaac etc. had a brother Philip who migrated to Melbourne in 1899 and
a sister Riva/Rachel Leah who married an Isaac/Isador Feitelberg whoes
family migrated to Cape Town, S.Africa around the same time - also from
Sheffield.

Dear Group,

Tom Weiss asked if any had gotten the Schalom database to work.

I used the link that Tom posted and had no problems with it. There is one
"hitch" though. In order to use the database one has to 'register' for the
forum----various message boards. Well, I registered, clicked on
database.......and then got a screen that told me it was not available at
this time. It was probably down for maintenance.

There are links to several cemetaries with photos.

Initially, anyone accessing the database can make 10 free inquiries. After
that there are various levels of accessibility, but I could not find this area.

There is a "Link" section with many, many related links that looked
interesting.

I'll give the database another try in a couple of days. In the meantime, I
had no problems navigating the site.
