Holocaust-period records now available to members of Gesher Galicia #ukraine

tkahane@...
 

Gesher Galicia recently announced the completed indexing and uploading
onto the freely available All Galicia Database of two important sets
of Holocaust-period records:

- Debica-area Holocaust-period death testimonies, held in the Rzeszow
State Archive
These are testimonies, provided by people who survived, of Jews who
died during the Holocaust - all but a handful of them murdered. They
were gathered after the end of the war in Europe.

We should have mentioned earlier that Gesher Galicia is indebted to
Russ Maurer and Mark Jacobson for their valuable work on these
records.

- Doctors' Questionnaires, 1941-1943, >from the Przemysl State Archive
and AGAD, Warsaw
These are detailed, four-page forms (some with face photos) that
Jewish medical and health-care workers were obliged to complete under
the Nazi occupation. The people named included doctors, dentists,
dental technicians, nurses, midwives, radiologists, cosmeticians,
medical students and others.


Gesher Galicia is pleased to be able to announce that we have put both
these sets of records, with their spreadsheets of indexes, into a new
Galician Holocaust Records section of the Member's Portal on the
Gesher Galicia web site. Currently paid-up members of Gesher Galicia
(and only they) will therefore be able to view these documents freely,
for their personal use.

The World Organization of Bukovina Jews delegation visited North Bukovina
Jewish Heritage Sites
in the area of Storozhynetz and Czernowitz on 11-15 July 2016.
In addition to filling the site surveys (I've posted them before) we took
more pictures. In the next few days I'll post them to the group.
Today you can see below the set of visits on 11 and 14 July 2016.

We have covered in this trip 12 site surveys and visited a few more. My
previous post generation some interest/feedback,
but what WE NEED MOST IS VOLUNTEERS!!
Our list has more than 700 sites and obviously our team alone would not be
able to finish it soon....

If you are planning to visit Bukovina or Transnistria and willing to devote
~20 minutes to also capture the site information
with the mobile app (to then put it in our website) - please contact me on
my private email. All can then enjoy it.

seeking WEISZ descendants from Lastomir Slovakia #general

Searching for information identifying descendents of two siblings of
my great-grandmother Zseni WEISZ Feldman (b 1856 in Lasztomir, Hungary,
now Slovakia; died 1929 in Ungvar). According to the 1869 census for
Lasztomir her parents Joseph Weisz (b 1825 in Vilag; d 1873 in
Nagymihaly, Hungary -- now Michalovce, Slovakia) and Hani (b 1836 in
Lasztomir; d - ?) had 6 children besides Zseni all born in Lasztomir
-- Herman, Jacob, Leah, Rachel, Mihaly and Mendel. I've traced
descendents or found youthful deaths of all these Weisz siblings except
for Leah (b.1863, who might have married a Mr. Bulger, according to a
relative) and Rachel (b. 1866). I'm looking forward to discovering
sources to check. Looking forward to seeing folks at the upcoming
Seattle conference. Thanks,

connections between two FELDMAN families #general

bikerick
 

Searching for the link between two FELDMAN families. I have traced my direct
ancestors back through my great-grandfather Aron Feldman (b.c1855 in
Ungcsertesz, Hungary, now in Ukraine - d.1922 in Ungvar) his father Shimon
Tzvi (b ?; died 1884 in Ungvar) and his father Aron (? - ?). Now I also had
a relative Jennie Feldman Cooper (b.1895 in Ung County - d.1976 in New
Jersey); daughter of Aron Feldman (b 1861 in Ungcsertesz) and Lea Goldner (b
1867), along with siblings Sera Feldman (b 1888 in New York); Izrael David
Feldman (b 1890 in Ung County) and Csarna Feldman (b 1893 in Ung Co). Their
Aron Feldman father (a different man than my great-grandfather but of the
same era) in turn was the son of Israel Feldman (b ? in Ungcsertesz,
Hungary) and Eszti Markowitz. Thus, this Israel Feldman and my Shimon Tzvi
Feldman could be siblings or the relationship could go back further. I'm
looking forward to discovering sources to determine a relationship. See you
at the upcoming Seattle conference.

Re: WWI personnel registers #general

Irene Newhouse
 

Nolan Altman recently posted a ViewMate page of WWI personnel register.
It seems that he's gotten a complete translation, but in the past I've
had similar pages for family members that were peppered with
abbreviations I wasn't able to find in German abbreviation webpages. If
you run into a case like that, there is a German email group called
milex.de that is devoted to WWI. They have members who know a great deal
about these abbreviations and can point you to links about information
regarding your family member's unit.

With the kind help of Russ Maurer, I've learned that he married Chaya

to any other children or any descendants who might be living today?
Thank you.

Holocaust-period records now available to members of Gesher Galicia #galicia

Tony Kahane <tkahane@...>
 

Gesher Galicia recently announced the completed indexing and uploading
onto the freely available All Galicia Database of two important sets of
Holocaust-period records:

- Debica-area Holocaust-period death testimonies, held in the Rzeszow
State Archive
These are testimonies, provided by people who survived, of Jews who
died during the Holocaust - all but a handful of them murdered. They were
gathered after the end of the war in Europe.

We should have mentioned earlier that Gesher Galicia is indebted to Russ
Maurer and Mark Jacobson for their valuable work on these records.

- Doctors' Questionnaires, 1941-1943, >from the Przemysl State Archive
and AGAD, Warsaw
These are detailed, four-page forms (some with face photos) that Jewish
medical and health-care workers were obliged to complete under the Nazi
occupation. The people named included doctors, dentists, dental
technicians, nurses, midwives, radiologists, cosmeticians, medical
students and others.

Gesher Galicia is pleased to be able to announce that we have put both
these sets of records, with their spreadsheets of indexes, into a new
Galician Holocaust Records section of the Members' Portal on the Gesher
Galicia web site. Currently paid-up members of Gesher Galicia (and only
they) will therefore be able to view these documents freely, for their
personal use.

Conference Blog on the JewishGen Facebook Page #general

Ann Rabinowitz
 

This summer, I will be attending the IAJGS Conference in Seattle, WA,
August 7-12, 2016 . Usually, you are used to reading my posts on various
topics on the Jewish Genealogy Facebook Pages, the JewishGen Digests or
the JewishGen Blog. Now, you will have the opportunity to see my posts
for the duration of the Conference *only* on the JewishGen Facebook Page
which you should "like" and sign up for.

For those of you who are attendees at the Conference, you may see me at a
session, perhaps in the resource room, at a lab, or a luncheon or a social
event. I'll try and cover a bit of it all. So, if you recognize me, please
do stop and say hello. Tell me what you are doing, what you are learning
and what brick walls you are trying to break down.

If you are unable to attend the Conference, be sure to look at the
JewishGen Facebook Page as I will be posting there once a day. Also,
remember to get "LIVE" to see gavel-to-gavel coverage of the sessions. In
this way, you will be able to keep up with what is happening at the
Conference.

I'm looking forward to interacting with you all and learning a lot at the
Conference. See you soon!!!

Chief Genealogist of MyHeritage to share Israel Genealogy On The
Internet at JGS Cleveland

Daniel Horowitz, the chief genealogist at MyHeritage, is the featured
speaker at the Wednesday, August 3rd meeting of the Jewish Genealogy
Society of Cleveland. Mr. Horowitz will show how to access
genealogical resources and other useful databases available in Israel,
that can be accessed online to find relatives. He will share how
English speakers can overcome the barrier of the language with a basic
lesson of Hebrew and how to translate efficiently to English.

Israel has a growing number of websites and digital resources that can
be searched via the Internet in English and in Hebrew. A fast
introduction to Hebrew, the keywords needed and the translation tools
available will assist with the vast array of places where one can find
information about people that have been born, lived or died in Israel.

Daniel Horowitz was a teacher and the study guide editor of the family
history project, "Searching for My Roots" for over 15 years in
Venezuela. He holds board level positions at the Israel Genealogy
Research Association (IGRA) and at the International Association of
Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS). He has a deep understanding of
the needs of today's family history enthusiasts. Daniel is the Chief
Genealogist of MyHeritage.com where he provides key contributions in
the areas of product development, customer support and public affairs.
Daniel also heads the company's Translation Department, where he has
been instrumental in increasing MyHeritage's global support to 43
languages.

The Jewish Genealogy Society of Cleveland meets on Wednesday evenings
starting at 7:30 PM in the Miller Board Room at Menorah Park, 27100
Cedar Road, Beachwood. Board members are available >from 7:00 to
assist with individual research questions. Guests are welcome. RSVP to
Programming@ClevelandJGS.org.
