Indexing vital records from the Lviv archives, and appeal for support #galicia

Tony Kahane <tkahane@...>
 

Gesher Galicia continues to move forward with the indexing of Jewish
vital records, with a focus on those held in Fond 701 in the Central
State Historical Archives in Lviv. Recently completed transcriptions
from this fond include Jewish vital records >from Kudrynce, Lwow,
Narajow and Stary Sambor, all of which will be announced shortly.

As mentioned in an earlier posting, there are 63 towns (all but three
of them >from eastern Galicia) represented in the sets of Jewish vital
records held in the Lviv archives. Gesher Galicia has now completed
the entire vital record sets >from 26 of these towns, and has partially
indexed the records >from another dozen towns. In addition, over 90% of
the very large batch of records >from Lwow has been completed, with the
generous contribution of Eric Bloch and his indexing team.

Gesher Galicia has some 14 towns in its indexing project for the
present period. For some of these places, some of the existing record
books have already been indexed. Work is currently proceeding on vital
records >from Jezierna and Narajow, as well as the project, in memory
of Pamela Weisberger, to index all the Grzymalow vital records in the
Lviv archives, will shortly be completed.

For some towns in the current program, we already have sufficient
funds to carry out all the indexing, thanks to generous donations from
members and supporters. For others, including some larger sets of
records, we have some funds, but not enough to complete the work.
Donations towards any of these projects, would enable us to carry them
out fully, and would be much appreciated.

The following are some of the immediate projects for which we are
hoping to obtain further funding to complete a town=E2=80=99s indexing.

- Stryj: We recently completed the indexing of Jewish death records
from this town for 1864-1876. These indexes have been uploaded to the
All Galicia Database and announced. To complete the remaining Stryj
records in the Lviv archives (D 1847-1863; B 1846-1858; and M
1855-1876), another $2,500 is needed.

- Narajow: We are currently working on, and have almost completed, the
indexing of books with Jewish birth, marriage and death records for
various years between 1905 and 1936. To complete the remaining Narajow
records in the Lviv archives (birth, marriage and death records for
various years between 1839 and 1904), another $750 is needed.

- Jezierna: Indexing will be starting shortly on Jewish birth records
from 1876 to 1882. However, to complete all the records for this town
(births 1883-1893 and 1898-1922) in the Lviv archives, another $1,200
is needed.

- Zolkiew: For the remaining book of Jewish vital records for this
town in the Lviv archives, births >from 1828-1840, $450 is needed.

- Turka: For the remaining book of Jewish vital records for this town
in the Lviv archives, marriages and deaths 1920-1922 and a birth index
book >from 1926, $800 is needed.

- Rozdol: For the single book of Jewish vital records for this town in
the Lviv archives, births >from 1832-1868, $500 is needed.

Support for any of these projects, in any amount, no matter how small,
will be much appreciated to help us complete this work. The resulting
indexes will become part of the All Galicia Database, which is freely
available to all researchers. However, to receive access to a towns'
original images, once these are uploaded to the Galician Archival
Records Project (GARP) "Donors Only" area on the Gesher Galicia
website, a $100 donation per town is required.

Donations by credit card or PayPal may be made online, through the
"Donate" button at the top right-hand corner of the Gesher Galicia
home page, or directly to <http://www.geshergalicia.org/donate/>. If
making a payment in this way, please enter the amount being donated
and the name of the town in the boxes provided.

You may also pay by check, again indicating the town name and your
email address. Checks must be in US dollars, drawn on a US bank, made
payable to Gesher Galicia, Inc., and mailed to:

correct?

It is on ViewMate at the following address:

Regarding Helen Nobler's posting about Skvira records & her BRONSTEIN family:

Last year I posted four blogs about Skvira, based on the 1897 Russian Census--
Kiev Provincial Committee of the 1st National Census in 1897
"Skvira County Census Committee"
F. 384
inv. 10, 1-42

While surnames only were available, she could contact the State Archive of the Kiev Region (I don't have the address or contact name) using the above information.

On my list #1 I see that a BRONSHTEYN was listed (last names only were available)

Dear researchers,

Here is an update for the month of June 2016 for Bessarabia SIG. This month we have completed and uploaded to JewishGen a large set of Revision Lists.

17383 Revision List records were translated >from towns of Tuzora/Kalarash; Akkerman; Khotin; Skulyany; Gancheshty; Kishinev; Ataki; Kapreshty; Dombroveny; Orgeev; Rezina and Teleneshty. The largest set was for Kishinev, about 11,000 records.

If anyone wants to get a full set of a records for a town, that is possible with a donation of $100 to Bessarabia SIG General fund. There are new sets of records found among revision records: petitions, certificates, guarantor letters, etc. I also need to ask you, if you have already donate $100 to get a set >from this upload, and I did not send the records yet, please re-send your request ( I have lost many of my emails...) and I will send you the set you wanted.

We are going to start working for the next set of records, which we plan to upload in December of 2016. It will include three sets we could not complete this time: Rashkov 1848, Teleneshti and Ataki 1854. It also be a large set for Kishinev, Belti records and more.

Dear researchers,

Here is an update for the month of June 2016 for Bessarabia SIG. This month we have completed and
uploaded to JewishGen a large set of Revision Lists.

17383 Revision List records were translated >from towns of Tuzora/Kalarash; Akkerman; Khotin;
Skulyany; Gancheshty; Kishinev; Ataki; Kapreshty; Dombroveny; Orgeev; Rezina and Teleneshty.
The largest set was for Kishinev, about 11,000 records.

If anyone wants to get a full set of a records for a town, that is possible with a donation of $100 to
Bessarabia SIG General fund. There are new sets of records found among revision records: petitions,
certificates, guarantor letters, etc. I also need to ask you, if you have already donate $100 to get a
set >from this upload, and I did not send the records yet, please re-send your request ( I have lost
many of my emails...) and I will send you the set you wanted.

We are going to start working for the next set of records, which we plan to upload in December of
2016. It will include three sets we could not complete this time: Rashkov 1848, Teleneshti and Ataki

Dear Friends:
Again, thank you for your generosity. Since I am working >from the
oldest revision lists to the newest in these messages, the question
arose about what use the oldest ones which only have patronymics may be.
It's been my experience when doing research with records such as these,
that the place to begin is with the most recent revision lists and then
tracking the family, continue backwards in time. By carefully doing
this, it's possible to track a family >from surnames to patronymics and
have a high degree of certainty that you are tracking the correct family.

The rest of the data we can get is also >from GAKO, the Kiev archive, and
are all revision lists >from different years. The towns and dates are as
follows:

1816:
Vasilkov, Belaia Tserkov, Fastov, Rokitna

1818:
Kiev, Borodianka, Dymer, Rzhishchev, Romno, Iasnogorodka, Byshev,
Ignatovka, Makarov

1834: Makhnovka

1850:
Berdichev, Gostoml Ignatovka, Iasnogorodka, Vasilkov, Krasnoe

1850-1852: Belaia Tserkov

1851-1858:Vasilkov

1851-1854: Berdichev

1851: Priluki

To donate, please choose the "Donate" button on the Ukraine SIG page,
then "donate" then DIgital Documents Acquistion and Transcription
Project. If by some chance we get more in donations than the $2,800
needed to acquire all of these documents (nearly 10,000 images) then we
will put the additional donations towards transcription/translation.
For that second part, if we have to pay translators, it will cost at
least $50,000 - my hope is that we will be able to use a combination of
volunteers and translators.
