Ludvipol (Wolyn) Yizkor Project Needs Donations #ukraine

jana@...
 

Dear SIG Members,

A trip to Israel last summer led me down a fascinating path to
discovering my lost relatives and the stories of those relatives who died,
and those who survived WW2.

My Great Grandma Anna Eizenman Babchick's entire extended family lived in
Ludvipol, Volynhia, Ukraine. The town was burned to the ground and the
townfolks were marched into the Kostopol Forest and murdered in August of
1942. Two brothers, Yosef and Avraham, my long lost cousins, escaped this
massacre, and today live in Israel. I photographed and recorded their
stories and now have taken on the project management of the Yizkor Book
translation at Jewishgen.org.

Yosef's section of the Yizkor book I have already had translated and will
post shortly. When we raise enough money, with your help, the entire 336
page book will be translated and available.

The community of Ludvipol, and neighboring Berezyna, were towns in the
Wolyn/Rovno Oblast, Ukraine, located at around 50°50'N 27°0'E. The town of
Ludvipol was founded in 1708 after the town of Hubków, which lies 4 km to
the east of current day Sosnove. Ludvipol consisted of villages, colonies,
and hutors. Between World War I and World War II Ludvipol was a capital of
the Ludvipol gmina in the historic region of Volhynia, and its population
was mostly Jewish. Before 1945, Ludvipol was a Polish village in Kostopol
County, Wolyn Voivodship and gmina.

Please donate to the Yizkor book project so we can all continue to learn
about Ludvipol and its people.

To donate go to:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=3D2=

There you will see all the different Yizkor book projects. Scroll down to
Ludvipol, and donate anything you can $10, $25, $100 or more. Anything
helps.

Thank you!

Bolechow Cadastral Map 1850/1878 - Gesher Galicia Map room #poland

Pamela Weisberger
 

Announcing the latest addition to the Gesher Galicia Map Room:

The Bolechow Cadastral Map 1850/1878

Direct link to the map:
http://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/bolechow-bolekhiv-1878/

This is a black-and-white cadastral map of Bolechow (Bolekhiv) survey
edition (Feldskizzen) of 1850, reambulation of 1878, which includes
the communities of Bolechow Ruski, Dolszka, and Salamonowa Gora.

There are only 12 of original 18 sheets, which cover all of the
densely-populated town areas. This update includes extensive redline
and black pencil revisions to property boundaries, houses, and
property numbering, with many property owners' names. The town center
includes a church and a likely synagogue, a Jewish community building,
and the market; elsewhere, a Jewish cemetery is shown south of the
town center, among several suburban communities and intricate
waterways. (To find the cemetery, looks between the words "Zidowiec"
and "Dzika" for the open space marked with gravestone and triangle
images.

On the page overview, make sure to note the separate "town center"
(downtown Bolechow) map on the lower right hand side. You can zoom in
on both maps and make out most of the names. Some of the Jewish names
that were easily readable in the smaller map are:

Berl Taup
Bronja Langer
Cuder Gross
David Vioral
Feige Leiberman
Hersch Granbart (or Graubart)
Hersch Schindler
Jakob Reifeisen
Jossel Berger
Laisor Ziering
Mechel Halpern
Mechel Kleinberg
Moses Fruchter
Moses Hersch Gross
Moses Kaufman
Moses Lichtstein
Moses Schmidt
Munisch Fruchter
Salamon Chaim Rubin
Salamon Groll
Samuel Halper
Simon Reifeisen
Yankiel Tepper
Zach Bernsweig
(no first name, but surname) Handel

This map is a higher resolution scan of the same Bolechow map that was
stitched by Joan Adler and Fred Fogelson in 2010 >from paper copies.
We thank them again for volunteering their time and skills to create a
large scale, laminated map to bring to conferences, and we are
grateful to Gesher Galicia map room coordinator, Jay Osborn, for
tackling the difficult stitching of a map with many missing pages. GG
has a landowner records book for Bolechow that we are in the process
of indexing, with the results to be posted to the All Galicia Database
soon.

There are many Galitzianers with ties to Bolechow (the town that
Daniel Mendelsohn wrote about in "The Lost: A Search for Six of Six
Million,") and there is a very active birds-of-a-feather/non-profit
organization, the Bolechow Jewish Heritage Society, whose members are
working on restoring the cemetery and creating a museum in the town.

Society click here: http://www.bolechow.org/

To learn more about Daniel Mendelsohn's experience in researching and
traveling to the town, click here:

You can access all of the maps in the GG map room by going to:
http://maps.geshergalicia.org and scrolling down to the alphabetical
listings of cadastral maps. Gesher Galicia hopes this iteration of
the Bolechow map will help many people discover relatives on these

Translation of 19th century occupation in the military requested #poland

RuthNW <ruthnw@...>
 

Among some marriage records I just came across the words
(presumably abbreviations) indicating the occupation of the groom:

sanit wojsk

Does that mean that while he was in military service he worked in
sanitation?

How do you answer the question "How Are You" from a newly found cousin #general

A. E. Jordan
 

I am sure others have had this challenge. You find a new distant
cousin and reach out to them and they respond but say before I share
info with you, how do I know you and know this is real?

I understand the trepidation in the age of ID theft and wonder how
others overcome this hurdle?

Sharing details about the family and how you are related? People seem
to get concerned and want to know how you know so much about them when
they do not know you.

I tried telling them where the info is found.

I suggested I could put them in touch with a mutual cousin but they
don't know those other cousins.

One other thing that I suggested is Google me with the phrase Jewish
Genealogy. That shows posting to this group, articles I have written,
and links to the presentation at last summer's conference.

How do you answer this question? What works to get a new cousin
comfortable to share their branch of the tree?

I will be in Suceava and Ostropol via Bucharest, Chernovitz and Lviv
for the first few weeks in April. My goal is to try and document the
more obscure cemeteries in Southern Bukovia, (see the listing bukovina
Kehalink) and to see if we can preserve the one in Ostropol since the
caretaker Polonsky died last year. I have been to both places
previously. If you are going to be there, or have any thoughts, let

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Bolechow Cadastral Map 1850/1878 - Gesher Galicia Map room #ukraine

Pamela Weisberger
 

Announcing the latest addition to the Gesher Galicia Map Room:

The Bolechow Cadastral Map 1850/1878

Direct link to the map:
http://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/bolechow-bolekhiv-1878/

This is a black-and-white cadastral map of Bolechow (Bolekhiv) survey
edition (Feldskizzen) of 1850, reambulation of 1878, which includes
the communities of Bolechow Ruski, DoÅ?szka, and Salamonowa Gora.

There are only 12 of original 18 sheets, which cover all of the
densely-populated town areas. This update includes extensive redline
and black pencil revisions to property boundaries, houses, and
property numbering, with many property owners' names. The town center
includes a church and a likely synagogue, a Jewish community building,
and the market; elsewhere, a Jewish cemetery is shown south of the
town center, among several suburban communities and intricate
waterways. (To find the cemetery, looks between the words "Zidowiec"
and "Dzika" for the open space marked with gravestone and triangle
images.

On the page overview, make sure to note the separate "town center"
(downtown Bolechow) map on the lower right hand side. You can zoom in
on both maps and make out most of the names. Some of the Jewish names
that were easily readable in the smaller map are:

Berl Taup
Bronja Langer
Cuder Gross
David Vioral
Feige Leiberman
Hersch Granbart
Hersch Schindler
Jakob Reifeisen
Jossel Berger
Laisor Ziering
Mechel Halpern
Mechel Kleinberg
Moses Fruchter
Moses Hersch Gross
Moses Kaufman
Moses Lichtstein
Moses Schmidt
Munisch Fruchter
Salamon Chaim Rubin
Salamon Groll
Samuel Halper
Simon Reifeisen
Yankiel Tepper
Zach Bernsweig
(no first name, but surname) Handel

This map is a higher resolution scan of the same Bolechow map that was
stitched by Joan Adler and Fred Fogelson in 2010 >from paper copies.
We thank them again for volunteering their time and skills to create a
large scale, laminated map to bring to conferences, and we are
grateful to Gesher Galicia map room coordinator, Jay Osborn, for
tackling the difficult stitching of a map with many missing pages. GG
has a landowner records book for Bolechow that we are in the process
of indexing, with the results to be posted to the All Galicia Database
soon.

There are many Galitzianers with ties to Bolechow (the town that
Daniel Mendelsohn wrote about in "The Lost: A Search for Six of Six
Million,") and there is a very active birds-of-a-feather/non-profit
organization, the Bolechow Jewish Heritage Society, whose members are
working on restoring the cemetery and creating a museum in the town.

Society click here: http://www.bolechow.org/

To learn more about Daniel Mendelsohn's experience in researching and
traveling to the town, click here:

You can access all of the maps in the GG map room by going to:
http://maps.geshergalicia.org and scrolling down to the alphabetical
listings of cadastral maps. Gesher Galicia hopes this iteration of
the Bolechow map will help many people discover relatives on these
pages and to get a true sense of the scope of Bolechow and its
history.
