Judi Wagner
 

We have finally got the new updated Khotyn Kehila links website up and operational. With great
thanks to Simon Schoihet for creating the original web pages. And, we have just been alerted to
the fact that a new project, the Khotyn legacy project is getting underway in Israel, with thanks to
Daniel Hoffman, of the Facebook Khotyn pages for telling us about this. Please let me know if
any of you have any materials that you would like us to include on the Kehila link, we are always
searching for additional information to improve our knowledge and understanding of this town.
Please go take a look and let us know what you think. We even found a fun you tube link >from a
festival held at the fort.

Maps added to the Gesher Galicia Map Room: Jagielnica & Sliwnica (Sanok) and Sliwnica (Sambor) #galicia

Pamela Weisberger
 

Three new maps have been added to Gesher Galicia's Cadastral Map Room:
one for Jagielnica and one each for two different towns with the same
name of Sliwnica:

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/jagielnica-yahilnytsya-1861/

Jagielnica Cadastral Map 1861

Full-color cadastral map of the village of Jagielnica (Yahilnytsya,
Yagelnitsa, Yagelnitza) near Czortkow, originally surveyed in 1827, then
updated and lithographed in 1861. Land parcels and houses are all clearly
numbered. Details included in the map are a well-developed market
square, Roman Catholic and Greek Catholic churches, a large Catholic
cemetery, and an unusual number of small Catholic road and way markers.
At the time this map was made, the village Jewish community had four
parcels listed in the property registers, including two adjacent plots
perhaps intended for a cemetery.

Sliwnica Cadastral Map 1852 (Sanok Kreis)

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/sliwnica-1852/

A complete, full-color cadastral map of the entire village of Sliwnica
(Sliwnica) near Nienadowa at the border of three Galician kreise, surveyed
and lithographed in 1852. All buildings and land parcels are clearly
numbered. Extensive redline manuscript revisions show changes intended
for a later update. The village has no marked center; the map shows the
development of farmlands and orchards along several small and large
waterways, plus two large granaries (one with a mill), and an inn placed
strategically at the three-way administrative border.

Sliwnica Cadastral Map 1853 (Sambor Kreis)

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/sliwnica-slyvnytsya-1853/

A complete, full-color cadastral map of the entire small village of Sliwnica
(Slyvnytsya, Sliwnica) near Chyrow, surveyed and lithographed in 1853. All
buildings and land parcels are clearly numbered. Less than 50 small
houses and farm structures, all wooden, dot the landscape among fruit
and vegetable gardens on both sides of the large town creek, and other
smaller brooks feed farmlands and pastures further out.

It's important to note that many Galician towns had identical or similar
names which often changed over time. To make sure you know your
correct ancestral shtetl or village, you should always confirm the kreis,
administrative district (if you know what these were during the years your
relatives lived there) or note the neighboring areas or villages (even better,
the exact coordinates) so you don't end up researching the incorrect place.

Consulting Gesher Galicia's Galician Town Locator here:
http://www.geshergalicia.org/galician-town-locator/
will help you see other towns with similar names and make the correct
distinction as can reviewing gazetteers for Galicia and JewishGen's Jewish
Communities Database.

Thanks are due to our digital cartography coordinator, Jay Osborn, for his
continuing excellent work on our map collection!

If our maps have helped your research, or simply entertained and
enlightened you, consider supporting our map room with a targeted
donation! We are planning an overhaul and re-design this summer as our
content keeps growing and contributions are much appreciated! Direct
donation link here: http://www.geshergalicia.org/donate and you can put
"Map Room" in the notes section or on your check.

Dear All,

Does anyone have any information about a secondary school in pre-WWII
Warsaw: Gizycki Gymnazjum?

It would have had non-Jewish as well as Jewish students. It definitely
had a fencing team.

Thank you!

The last page of the ship's manifest shows a list of first initials,

Does anyone know why this ship would have carry cattlemen as well
as immigrants?

Anyone care to translate some Hebrew/Yiddish #lithuania

Greetings to all

I have 4 documents regarding the emigration of Gutman Schacht
from Lithuania to Eretz Israel. A bit too complicated to upload
them as a batch to viewmate on Jewishgen. Any volunteers who might
like to help, I would be happy to send the documents directly to you.
I will send to all volunteers. I have learned in the past, sometimes,
there can be varying translations when two or more people are
translating. But this is a good thing. Please contact me directly.

And thank you in advance

One family is headed by Natan Hirsch and Julianna Rapaport and the other
is headed by Moric Hirsch and Johanna Weiler. These people were born in
the 1820s.
