Re: Searching the 1891 Galicia Business Directory #general

Phyllis Kramer
 

Chani Bonn asked: How does one search the directory itself?

The 1891 Galician Business Directory is part of JewishGen's Poland
Country Database. It is basically a "yellow pages" of names and
occupations by town.

Go to the Poland Country Database at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Poland/. This database is composed
of 15 sub-databases which can be searched with one query.

You can search for any surname or town.
When you get the response screen, just scroll down and you will see
the "hits" by each of the sub-databases. Click on the 1891 Galician
Business Directory to see the "hits" in that directory.

You cannot search a sub-database directly.
but still...Isnt JewishGen wonderful !?!

Hello genners
I am looking for descendants of Jakob-Mendel STASZEWSKI (1876-1933) and Chana
Rajzla STASZEWSKI (b. 1870). They were cousins.

Jakob Mendel is buried in Lodz cemetery. They had 5 children: Frymeta, Hersz,
Laja, Chil-Berek (1896-1941) and Alter-David (b. 1905).

Chil-Berek STASZEWSKI was married to Sara GRYNWALD (b. 1896 in Zarnow). They
had two children: Ester (b. 1918) and Jakob-Leib (b.1920).

Alter-David STASZEWSKI was married to Sara BORENSZTAJN (b. 1899 in Wloszczowa)
and they had 4 children: Icyk (b. 1926), Leib (b. 1929), Zlata (b. 1930),
Mordechai-Ruven (b. 1931).

Any information about these people will be greatly acknowledged.

Re: A question about an 1897 birth record entry recorded in the 1930s. #galicia

Mark Halpern
 

Any answer to this question is definitely not a universal truth. The
recording of the surnames for anyone that was born illegitimate
(whose parents were not married in a ceremony by a Rabbi not
authorized by the Austrian Crown to perform civil marriages) was
inconsistent >from town to town and within towns >from registrar to
registrar. It is conceivable that the registrar in 1930s knew or
surmised that the mother of the child was illegitimate and legally
carried her mother's maiden name. It may also be true that this
mother was recorded by her father's surname in other records that
were registered by a different registrar.

I have only one example that I have seen where a Tarnopol 1890
Census entry shows the entire family of my great grandmother with
a surname that I assume was her mother's maiden name.

The recording of surnames on Galician records and their lack of
consistency is one of the great difficulties in the ability to
accurately trace your Galician ancestry.

Hi - Has anybody found a birth record for someone, under the surname
of the maternal grandmother's maiden name? Not simply the mother's
maiden name. I realize that this happens a lot. But I couldn't find
anything about my question, in this group's discussion archive.

The ViewMate request that I recently posted (see below), is a 1897
birth record in Lviv, that was added at the back of the book, during
the 1930s. The mother's name there, is listed as Jente Dwore
FRIEDMANN. No other surname is listed. The child is listed simply
with their first name, Chaim. Someone told me that Polish writing,
states that the child was illegitimate.

A woman that is on my family tree, is named Debora Jente. Her maiden
name was ZIPPER, and her mother's maiden name was FRIEDMAN. She had 5
children listed under her husband's name, starting in 1900. If Chaim
was her child, he would have been her first born. The combination of
first names of Jente and Devorah is fairly unique in the Lviv records.
Thus,
someone has suggested to me that Chaim was also her son. But why would
he have been listed under his grandmother's maiden name? Could it be
due to the fact that he might have really been illegitimate? And why
would it have been added later?

Thanks for any input.

Hi - Has anybody found a birth record for someone, under the surname
of the maternal grandmother's maiden name? Not simply the mother's
maiden name. I realize that this happens a lot. But I couldn't find
anything about my question, in this group's discussion archive.

The ViewMate request that I recently posted (see below), is a 1897
birth record in Lviv, that was added at the back of the book, during
the 1930s. The mother's name there, is listed as Jente Dwore
FRIEDMANN. No other surname is listed. The child is listed simply
with their first name, Chaim. Someone told me that Polish writing,
states that the child was illegitimate.

A woman that is on my family tree, is named Debora Jente. Her maiden
name was ZIPPER, and her mother's maiden name was FRIEDMAN. She had 5
children listed under her husband's name, starting in 1900. If Chaim
was her child, he would have been her first born. The combination of
first names of Jente and Devorah is fairly unique in the Lviv records.
Thus,
someone has suggested to me that Chaim was also her son. But why would
he have been listed under his grandmother's maiden name? Could it be
due to the fact that he might have really been illegitimate? And why
would it have been added later?

Thanks for any input.

Help seeking MEISTER line #general

Scott Ehrlich <scott@...>
 

Hello to all:

The ship manifest for my mom's great grandmother, Sarah (MEISTER)
Newman and Sarah's daughter, my mom's mom, Lena NEWMAN (Liba NEIMAN on
the manifest) notes they were on the Caledonia sailing >from Glasgow on
the 24th of March 1906, arriving at Port of New York 1906.

Last Residence is noted as Schitomor but a google search reveals this
is really Zhytomyr, Ukraine.

I tried a JewishGen and JRI-Poland search of NEIMAN and MEISTER (fuzzy
searching) in Zhytomer, but nothing.

I'd really like to learn where the Meister line comes >from and what
siblings, etc, Sarah had. Was Zhytomer just a location they last
departed from, but lived somewhere else?

Sarah and husband Harry remained aliens in the US, but Lena did
naturalize and I have her paperwork, but nothing specific other than
Vilna is noted as where she was from.

Thanks for any help/leads.

Dear Friends,

As it is nearing Erev Rosh Hashanah I must send you all greetings and my
heartfelt wishes for a Happy, Healthy and Blessed New Year. May your lives
be filled with love, contentment and peace.

Thank you one and all for all your help these past 10 months. This is how
long I have been doing my research on the IR / TUGENDER / EDELMAN / EKSZTEJN
families in Biala Podlaska, MEYERSDORF family in Warsaw and the JEKEL /
LANDMAN family in the Ukraine. So many of you helped with suggestions,
ideas, explanation, history, culture all of which made the research so much
easier, but too many Geners to list. These last 10 months I have identified
hundreds of people who easily clung into one of the these family trees. To
all Geners who diligently help with translation, you are wonderful and
without you, there would be huge holes in our hearts.

But I do want to signal out two very important people who were so instrumental
in my creating the family trees, they truly deserve their own branch. They are
David Price in Canada and Alexis Piletski, in Israel. Week after week you help
me learn more about my family through your wonderful menschlechkite of
translating the documents. I never would have imagined that I could take my
family back to the mid 1700?s. Through your translation I have been able to
create a personality to so many members of my family. To all, úåãä øáä, , Toda Raba,
may we all continue to help each other identify and create, and keep our
families alive through these pages, translations, photographs, stories and
love.

Shana Tova, may you all go >from strength to strength.

Cadastral Map for Strzylki 1853 added to the Gesher Galicia Map Room #general

Pamela Weisberger
 

A new map has been added to Gesher Galicia's Map Room:

Strzylki Cadastral Map 1853

A full-color lithographed cadastral map of the village of Strzylki
(Strilky, Strelki, Strzylki), with the hamlet of Mlyny. By the time of
this survey, Strzylki was already a populated village stretching along
the Dniester River, with a large road connecting Stary Sambor to
Turka on the opposite shore - much as it is today. The map shows
only a single masonry building and no distinct town center, but a
large number of wooden buildings including a church at one end of
the residential area, plus a small nearby Catholic cemetery.
Buildings and land parcels are all clearly numbered; redline revisions
to building and parcel outlines indicate extensive changes in town
after the 1853 survey.
