New Year Reminder to Galitzianers -- JRI-Poland / Gesher Galicia Challenge #poland

Mark Halpern
 

Dear Galicia Researchers:

L'Shana Tovah to all.

In late June, Gesher Galicia and JRI-Poland announced an exciting
joint project to help fully fund JRI-Poland Galician PSA indexing
projects at the AGAD and Przemysl Archives and to jump start the
newest projects at the Krakow, Sanok, and Tarnow Archives.

This 2 FOR 1 Matching Initiative will match Contributions from
interested researchers to the remaining 14 AGAD towns and town
indexing projects in the Krakow, Przemysl, and Tarnow PSA
Archives (read on). AGAD projects for Grodek Jagiellonski,
Horodenka, Kolomyja, Rawa Ruska, and Stryj; the Rzeszow project
for Lezajsk; and Sanok projects for Brzozow and Sanok have
already been fully funded through this joint initiative.

For AGAD, there are now only 15 of the original 87 AGAD towns
which have not yet achieved their financial goals, including
Lwow. For those researchers interested in Lwow, the Lwow indexing
projects have another source of matching funds and ALL
contributions to Lwow will continue to be matched dollar for
dollar. Therefore, Lwow is NOT included in this limited matching
grants initiative.

The 14 remaining towns of the AGAD PSA project include Brzezany,
Jaworow, Kosow, Krakowiec, Krzywcze, Mielnica, Mosciska, Olesko,
Rudki, Sokal, Tartakow, Uhnow, Zniesienie, and Zolkiew.

The indexing projects in the Krakow (Bochnia, Krakow, Ksiasz
Wielkie, Miechow, Nowy Wisnicz, Podgorze, and Zablocie), Przemysl
(Radymno), and Tarnow (Dabrowa, Szczucin, Tarnow, Wosnicz, and
Zabno) PSA Archives are not yet fully funded and are included in
this contribution match.

Gesher Galicia and JRI-Poland teamed up to help these towns meet
their financial goals. Both Gesher Galicia and JRI-Poland agreed
to match all contributions up to an overall total of $2,000
received by JRI-Poland. There is now $788 of the $2,000
remaining.

Qualifying contributions are subject to the following. There is a
limit to the dollar amount of contributions to be matched for any
one town, which is 1/3 of the amount needed for that town to
become fully funded or $500, whichever is less. In effect, your
contribution to any one of the Galician PSA projects not fully
funded (except the AGAD-Lwow project) will result in additional
contributions of two times your donation.

For example, the fundraising target for Rudki is $1352 and $150
has already been raised. The balance to fully fund the town is
$1202. If $401 is contributed, Rudki will receive two matching
fund grants of $401 >from Gesher Galicia and JRI-Poland, totaling
$802. Rudki will then be fully funded and those records can be
indexed.

Up-to-date information for the AGAD project can be found at
http://www.jri-poland.org/agad/agadtowns.html. Information on the
funding status and archive coordinators for other projects is
available at http://www.jri-poland.org/psa/status.htm. Select the
archive project, look for an e-mail link to your town, and
contact your archive coordinator for more information. If there
is no archive coordinator, please contact Mark Halpern at
mark@halpern.com.

Information on contributing to the indexing of your Galician
town's records is at http://www.jri-poland.org/visa.htm. Be sure
to communicate for which project(s) your contribution is
intended.

Program, please Contact Pamela Weisberger, Research Coordinator,

Synagogue in Bromhead Street #unitedkingdom

Alan Marks <alley@...>
 

Can anyone clarify for me whether there was more than one synagogue in
Bromhead Street, which I understand came off Commercial Road, Mile End.

My wife, who visited her grandparents living in this street, believes that
there was a synagogue on the western side of the street. Her grandfather
may have been an official of this shul.

I am trying to track down distant relatives who ended up in Wichita, KS. All I
know is that the cousin's name was Marjorie WOLFF and that she died in Wichita in
July, 1973. Could someone tell me the names of likely cemeteries where she might
be buried?

All help appreciated

MARKS Brothers #general

HPOLLINS@...
 

I wonder if anyone has these names on their family trees. I should like to
establish that they were Jews. Two brothers, ALfred MARKS and Lionel MARKS, were
killed in action within three days of each other (on 25 and 28 April 1915) at the
start of the ill-fated Gallipoli campaign, in the First Battle of Krithia. Nether
body was recovered so there are no gravestones and they are instead commemorated
on memorials. Alfred served in the Border Regiment and Lionel was in the
Australian Imperial Force.

Their father was Louis Joseph MARKS of 88 Fenchurch Street, London, EC, and later
of 11 Oxford Circus, Noting HIll, London (but I cannot locate that street.)

I should be very glad to have any information about them or their family.

Then, I would like to request that those of you who are using these mailing

This is an improper use of personal information taken >from our genealogical

1910 Census Question #general

Diane Frankel <dlfrankel@...>
 

On a 1910 census for Bayonne, Hudson Co, New Jersey I wonder if anyone would know
what "M1" means. It's column 8 which asks if the person is single, married,
divorced or widowed. This person was a widow but there is definitely an "M and
what looks like the numeral 1. There are others with the same notation have the
same notation and one even has an "M2". Others have and S for single.

My great grandmother's sister Yenta (Enta) GUTIS (SOHMER)stated on her application
for naturalization that she arrived on the above ship. A search of the ellis
island ship manifest on line could not reveal her name on it. A search on her
name(s) (including KRAMER, which she used for reasons I don't know) also produces
no results. Is there any other way of verifying this statement?
