JOWBR Submissions - more info #scandinavia

Nolan Altman
 

Yesterday I posted a message that informed you of the cut-off date for
submissions to the JOWBR database for the June upload. I received a
number of emails regarding questions that I should have addressed in
that email.

If you're not familiar with JOWBR (JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial
Registry), please take a look at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Submit.htm
JOWBR currently has in excess of 1.3 million records >from 45 countries.

The only way we can keep track of what records are in JOWBR and what
records are still needed is to require submissions to include complete
cemetery or cemetery section records. To see which cemeteries and
cemetery sections are already included in JOWBR, please see
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm

For more information on how to submit data and photos, please see
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Submit.htm#JOWBR
or now you can watch screencasts at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Screencasts/

For all those that are interested in submitting burial records and or
photos to the JOWBR database, our next cut off date will be May 31st.
Any data /photos that are submitted by then will be included in the
June update prior to the conference.

If you can't submit records in time, consider planning an indexing project
for the spring/summer season (for our Northern Hemisphere readers) and the
fall/winter season (for our Southern Hemisphere readers).

If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact me at
NAltman@JewishGen.org Sorry for any confusion.

Aubrey Woolf JOEL #southafrica

Jessica Leschnikoff <jessica@...>
 

Dear members,

Having got to several brick walls in recent days, I'm seemingly facing
another one. I am trying to find out the parents of my great uncle Aubrey
Woolf Joel born in 1903 South Africa and died in Jo'burg in 1982. He was
married to my great aunt Barbara Pulvermacher. I have lots of info on
Barbara (who I knew) but hardly anything on Aubrey. >from my other great
aunt's book:

"Aubrey was for many years manager of Harris Hats factory in Johannesburg
(some 40 years, I believe!) until he decided he had had enough, and retired.
He made no use of the fact, but does come >from the well known Joel family;
also his mother was an excellent pianist who studied with Clara Schumann in
her youth."

And that, as they say, is it! Unfortunately, my South African family are
disinclined to help me in my research, and since they live in Cape Town,
they are not in the vicinity of Johannesburg, where Barbara and Aubrey would
have been buried. In fact, I don't even know if they were buried.

I have a strong feeling that the Joel family that my great aunt was
referring to in her book was the Randlord family that included Woolf Joel
and (by marriage) Barney Barnato. I have googled these Joels, but haven't
found a comprehensive family tree for them. The One World Tree on ancestry
does include a few of them but isn't that extensive: I suspect that not all
children >from marriages shown are included.

If anyone could suggest anything, I'd be most grateful. Email me off list
if you would like to contact me directly Jessica@supersoprano.com

Thanks,

Jessica Leschnikoff, Brenchley, UK

Translation Request (Russian) - 1916 Letter from Russia to US #belarus

Hi,
I have a two-page letter (or, possibly, two one-page letters sent
in the same envelope) that I'd like to have translated from
Russian to English. I believe that the letter was sent >from Russia
to my paternal grandmother Rose EINBUND in Pittsburgh in 1916.

My Grandmother's family lived in Parichi (near Shchedrin) in the
Belarus region of Russia. She emigrated to the US in July 1913.

I've posted the pages on Viewmate.

Jewish records for L'viv - since when & until when? #ukraine

HelenieIrit
 

Hello genners,

Am a new comer to this SIG. So, please, bear with me.

I was told, that in the archives there are Jewish records for L'viv [Lvov,
Lwow, Lemberg] >from 1801, and already researched them.
According to the FHLC there are Jewish Congregation records since 1791.

How far can I go back with researching L'viv?
Are there really 1791-1800 Jewish BMD/vital records in the Central State
Historical Archives ?

And for the other end: are there any accessible records for 1939-1942 in
L'viv archives [except those in the USC !]?
I know about the "100 years old" Law.
[I know about what there is at Holicaust Museums].

Thank you,

Irit Shem-Tov

LDS Stuttgart - help pls. #germany

nigel wilson <wilsonettess@...>
 

Dear genners.

I am working with a friend in Stuttgart on a family history of mutual
interest.

I found reference on the LDS site to a great-grandmother b. 1853 in Frankfurt
and death date too. Wanting to either purchase or view these records
we approached the LDS centre in Stuttgart. However the information given
on the site does not give a film number, only a Batch no.
How are we to obtain the records? - here is the response >from the LDS centre
(translated >from the German)

" Unfortunately we are not able to identify the film corresponding to the
batch number, since it has not been indicated. Maybe you can find more
information >from the records on marriage and death about the churches
involved in registration, so that then we could eventually release the
film order via internet through the church book film order"

Can anyone advise us where to go >from here? Thank you in anticipation.
