Litvak SIG Records Acquisition for April, May, June, 2014 #general

Howard Margol
 

Following is a list of records, in the Lithuanian Archives, that were
translated by Litvak SIG during the months of April, May, and June,
2014.It will be 18 months before these records will be added to the
JewishGen Lithuania and the Litvak SIG ALD databases.

The records are available now on the appropriate Litvak SIG District
website. District members are able to see the records, copy them if
they wish, sort alphabetically, etc.

To become a member of a district, and gain access to the records, a $100
contribution to Litvak SIG is required. That is per district.
In other words, if you are interested in two districts, a $200 contribution
is required. That is an extremely low cost to obtain thousands of records.

To contribute, go to www.litvaksig.org/contribute
Scroll down to District Research and select the district of your choice.

The only exception to the list of records is the Vilnius vital records.

The marriage, divorce, and death records for 1919-1940 have been
translated but will not be added to the Vilnius web site until the
Vilnius DRG can pay for the records. Unfortunately, the Vilnius
research group does not have the necessary funds to do this.You can help
by making a contribution specified for the Vilnius District. As the
contributions are received, vital records will be released and added
to the Vilnius District web site.

Vilnius Internal Passport Project web site.
https://vilniusinternalpassports19191940.shutterfly.com/

This is an entirely different project >from the Vilnius DRG and requires
a separate $100 contribution to Litvak SIG. So far, 13,554 records have
been translated and are available on the web site. It is estimated that
30,000 internal passport records remain to be translated and contributions
are sorely needed in order to get this done.

A large percentage of those listed as having a Lithuanian internal
passport originally came to Vilnius >from Belarus or Poland. If you
have any indication that your ancestors went to Vilnius, it may pay off
for you to become a member of the Vilnius internal passport project.

Please do your part and send your contribution today.

Badatelna website #austria-czech

holijoli@...
 

The new format for postings on the badatelna.eu website is NOT an improvement.
1. The page listings on the left interfere with the rest of the text
2. The pages (strana) are not numbered, making it almost impossible
to find again easily. This also makes referencing difficult.
3. The only way to print an entry is to use "Print Screen". On my
computer it only works by printing to Dropbox, in the Cloud.
4. The arrow for proceeding to the next page does not work.

I hope that if others of you are having the same problems, you let
Lenka Matusikova know.

Dear Stephen,

regarding your question I reply to the list as well:

*** ? ***

I have found this information which looks somewhat like the URL you had
for the sample image in your e-mail:

http://web.nacr.cz/pomucky/zoomify/NAD0029/MZA-Brno/NAD0314/289-291/026/TileGroup0/0-0-0.jpg

But I do not know how to modify this to match the format of your example.

*** /? ***

Just cut the part when the „TileGroup“ starts, your new URL (to page 26 of
this document, it is only page-per-page) would be

http://toolserver.org/~kolossos/image/zoomify.php?zoom=4&path=http://web.nacr.cz/pomucky/zoomify/NAD0029/MZA-Brno/NAD0314/289-291/026/

(note: this specific request needs a "zoom level" to be set to 4 [the
highest resolution] before the path to the tile; this is only the case
with some of the documents)

Is there any explanation on what is in the Familianten Records and how

years?

Re: Russian "selo" and "derevnya" both translate as village. What is the difference? #bessarabia

info@...
 

Dear Barry,
"selo" is village with church, "derevnia" is village without church (usually
smaller).
There is also "khutor" which means even more smaller than "derevnia" village.

The distinction has nothing to do with nationality of population (Ukrainian
vs Russian). It has been strictly used in Russian Empire to describe
settlements, as for example in the 1897 census.

Hope that helps

My great-grandfather's city of origin according to the ship manifest we have
is given as just "Zaslav" in English.
This was in 1912, so at that time, the Russian Empire included what is
today Belarus and Ukraine.
If I recall correctly, according to what I've seen on JewishGen,
Zaslav could be the Yiddish pronunciation of both Zaslavl, Belarus and
Izyaslav, Ukraine.

Have any of you out there had this confusion?
Suggestions on how to determine which is the more likely town in my case?

The ship left >from Bremen. They came to Philadelphia, FWIW.
Subject name: Yitzchok / Isak (Isadore) Leibson, wife Eva nee Gorsky,
and children.

(Thanks to Y.b.S. for giving me the idea to post this.)

Thanks very much in advance for your time.
