USA - New York
many, many PARNES and related families - several listed as b. Austria -
but while browsing I noticed one was >from BK and another was >from
Galicia. I did NOT read through all of the matches.

There was also a Harry KATZ (Tzvi Hirsch b. Asher Anschil HaCohen;

Also in the database: Esther, Rose, and Celia PARNES, the first two
buried at Mt. Hebron and the third at Mt. Zion.

Also: Bertha SAFTLAS (Beila b. Pinchas) and Sarah KRIM (Sarah b.
Pinchas), sisters, whose mother was Taube FUCHS and whose maiden names
were both PARNES.


Links to more data on these people is available using above URLs. There
are tons of PARNES burials around the world, and I have only a slight
PARNES link in my personal tree (and not to any of the above people, as
far as I can tell). I don't have any information on the above people
but what's in this message. Hope this helps someone!

Re: What does a "Privatbeamter" do? #austria-czech

Hans Peter Grab <hpgrab@...>
 

Dear Celia,

Czech an Slovak language is very similar. The Slovak "sukromny uradnik" is
the Czech "soukromy urednik". The term "soukromy urednik" was in the Czech
lands used until 1948 (the communist coup d'etat) and not only for Jewish
persons, but for Christians too. The "soukromy urednik" was the same like
"Privatbeamter", "statni urednik" the same like "Beamter" and "urednik" (a
person which worked in an office) roughly the same like "Angestellter" (a
clerk without "Beamtenprivilegien") . The word "urednik" described the kind
of work, the words "soukromy = privat" and "statni = government" the social
position.

The same person (lived in Bohemia) which was named in a German birth book
(birth of his first child) "Privatbeamter", was named in a Czech birth book
(birth of his third child) "soukromy urednik".

The reason why Vladimir Bohinc mean the term "Privatbeamter" in Slovakia was
only used by Jewish people is probably the fact, that in German und
Slovakian population of Slovakia the "white collar" professions were in the
19th century very rare and the Hungarian people don't used "Beamter" or
"uradnik" but the corresponding hungarian word. Anyway, in the Austrian part
of the monarchy the term "Privatbeamter" or "soukromy urednik" was not a
kind of a "Rabbinical language" but an element of the absolute normal
language.

Hopefully, one day, our message archive will be used

as our roots in Vienna, Austria at large,
Bohemia-Moravia and the huge Habsburg Empire slip
further and further into the dim, distant past.

Pinkassim: Lancut, Przeworsk, Kanczuga and Rzeszow #galicia

Suzan & Ron Wynne <srwynne@...>
 

A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that the late Isaac Lewin had written
about having or examining community record books for the above-named
communities. I finally connected with Mr. Lewin's son who has possession of
his father's library and papers. It now appears that Mr. Lewin most likely
wasn't given the books to keep but only to study and examine. Unfortunately,
he did not say in his book, The Jewish Community in Poland, where the books
were at the time.

Isaac Lewin's son, Naftali, has given me some very good suggestions about
where the material might be in London, Israel and Poland. I will be seeing
Yale Reisner in Las Vegas and will solicit his help in exploring whether the
Pinkassim are at the Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw but I need
volunteers in London and Israel to contact libraries there. I will be
writing to Rabbi Meir Wunder as well.

If you would like to help with this, please contact me privately.

Galicia Kehilot and missing records - LWOW, Part 3, Missing Records #galicia

Alexander Sharon
 

BELZ
(District Sokal)
The most famous of all the shtetls, the home of 2,104 Jewish souls
No separate Jewish records found in Polish or Lwow Archives.
JRI-P AGAD database lists 242 entries for Belz, mostly under Sokal, Mosty
Wielkie, Rawa Ruska, and Lwow. It appears that Sokal as the Belz' district
town was probably the main depository.

BRZOZDOWCE,
(District Bobrka), Shtetl of 440 Jews (out of 2,420 residents).
Jewish records for Brzozdowce are not listed in Polish Archives.
Logically, records should be within the Bobrka district documentation but
they are not shown there in JRI-P AGAD database. On the other hand, current
JRI-Poland AGAD Project database lists 66 entries of Jews >from Brzozdowce
mostly in Boryslaw and Drohobycz.

CHYROW,
(Distirct Stary Sambor), shtetl of 991 Jews (out of 2,654).
No Jewish records are listed in Poland Archives,
Again, logically, records should be within Stary Sambor, but JRI-P database
lists 482 entries for Chyrow Jews in Lwow, Sambor, Przemysl, Boryslaw and
Drohobycz. No Chyrow records are listed in Stary Sambor.

CIESZANOW
(District Lubaczow), shtetl of 939 Jews (out of 2,282 residents)
Town is now located in Poland.
Records should be within Lubaczow, but the location of Lubaczow records are
not identified either (see entry for Lubaczow).
Jewish records are not listed in Polish Archives. JRI-P lists 178 entries
for Cieszanow Jews mostly in Lwow, some in Rawa Ruska and in Sieniawa

JANOW
(District Grodek Jagiellonski), shtetl of 490 Jews (out of 1,808)
Beside the death records already released to AGAD Project, there are also
birth record for Janow in Warsaw Archives for years 1898-1942 and the death
records for years till 1939 but since they are mixed up in the registry
books with a newer records, they will be not released to AGAD. Archived
marriage records for Janow are all post WWI

There are 27 entries under Lwow records and 60 entries under Kamionka
Strumilowa (Tarnopol Province) in AGAD Project database

KRUKIENICE - records are not lost
(District Mosciska), shtetl of 264 Jews (out of the total 1,689 resident)

District Sokal), shtetl of 2,086 Jewish souls (74% of total residents)
533 entries for Krystonopol are listed in AGAD Project database, mostly
within Lwow, Sokal, Rawa Ruska and Mosty Wielkie.
A bit strange spread - all the birth records for Krystonopol were registered
in Mosty Wielkie and Rawa Ruska but marriages and death are all in Sokal.

No Jewish records are confirmed to be listed in Przemysl Archives in Poland.
JRI-P lists 232 records of Cieszanow Jews registered mostly in Lwow, some in
Rawa Ruska and Sieniawa.
Missing Lubaczow records will also effect search for the records of the
other 57 localities including such Jewish shtetls as:

Several record shown in Polish Archives are referring to Nowe Miasto in

There are no entries for the shtetl in AGAD Project database. Since Nowe
miasto was located in Dobromil district, I assume that NM records are kept
with Dobromil records in Rzeszow Archives. Please refer to our previous

group archives.

My great grandfather Franz GINSBERG arrived in South
Africa >from Germany in 1880, and by 1892 was serving
as a Borough Councillor in King Williamstown.

What qualifications would have been required in the
1880s - 1890s to be eligible for election as a Borough
Councillor? Would a candidate have to have been
naturalised, and /or granted
Burghership?

JRI-Poland Success Stories-"The Galitzianer" Summer Issue #general

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

In honor of Jewish Records Indexing Poland's 10th anniversary, "The Galitzianer,"
the quarterly publication of Gesher Galicia, is devoting a major portion of our
summer issue to "success stories" involving JRI-Poland, which specifically relate
to "Galician" research.

If you've used their remarkable indexes make inroads in your family trees or towns
of origin...ordered records >from Polish archives, or used these indexes to locate
missing ancestors in Family History Center microfilms...please send us your
stories!

Try to keep these anecdotes short...a few paragraphs will be fine unless its a
very involved story. Include as much detail as possible, with a beginning, middle
and end. If you want to send a JPEG image of the record(s) that lead you to your
success...or an old photograph or map that ties into your story, please do.

Take your time to produce the finished product, as we won't be able to rewrite it
for you. Even a sentence or two of your successes...the road you traveled to
knock down a brick wall....what this enormous undertaking by Stan Diamond &
company has meant to you...will help make this tribute as successful as your
stories.

Please send your copy, if possible, in a Word document, directly to:

pweisberger@...

Due date: July 13th (but sooner will be better) And remember--only Galician
research, please!

Thank you!

Canadian Parliament Passes the Canadian Census Act S-18 #general

jan meisels allen <janmallen@...>
 

This morning (June 28) the Canadian House of Commons unanimously passed S-18, The
Act to amend the Canadian Census. S-18 had already passed the Senate's several
months ago. What is needed to happen now is Royal Assent and as this was a
government sponsored bill it is expected to be given in the very near future.

Enactment of S-18, once Royal Assent is granted, will in effect release for public
review the long-overdue release of the 1911 Canadian census. It is believed
that the Library and Archives of Canada has already scanned images of the 1911
National Census of Canada and they should be available on line almost immediately.
S-18 removes a legal ambiguity for census records made between 1910 and 2005. It
allows unrestricted access to those records 92 years after the census was taken
(their privacy requirement). Starting in 2006 an "opt-in" provision is mandated,
requiring that each Canadian must agree to have their information released to the
public- after 92 years. This "opt-in" provision was opposed by IAJGS but after 7
years of a hard-fought battle many in the census debate thought this was the only
way they could get the censuses released starting with the long-overdue 1911
census. There is a provision in S-18 that requires Parliamentary review of this
opt-in provision and organizations in Canada will start education campaigns to
have encourage Canadians agree to "opt-in".
