Town of "Korlomp" #general

Isabel Cymerman
 

Dear All,
I obtained the SS#5 for an individual born in 1877 who was known to be
Polish. She gives her place of birth as "Korlomp Poland". The town that
sounds most like this comes up as "Kralupy nad Vltavou" but this is near
Prague, Czech Republic. Kralupy seems never to have been in Poland.

Can anyone unravel this discrepancy? BTW, I am assisting a friend with
non-Jewish ancestors.

Thank you! TIA

Dear Genners, I have posted 4 pages >from my great Aunt Gussie
Steigman's autograph album. All dated 1914 when she graduated from
school in New York. They are all in yiddish accept >from VM 49673 which
I mistakenly said was polish. It is instead, GERMAN.

VM 49670 is written by my greatgrandmother Jennie Steigman. I have but
a few photos of her and this is the only example of her writing that I
have. Maybe they are all just good luck wishes, but I am curious!
Any help you can give me will be appreciated. Have a wonderful day,

Yizkor Book Project, July 2016 #belarus

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

The Yizkor Book Project in July was characterized by a great deal of updates
as you will see below. It is always encouraging to see the projects make
progress - step by step - till the final goal is reached and the complete
Yizkor book is translated. This amazing progress is due to the untiring
determination of the coordinators leading these projects and they certainly
deserve our salute for all that they do.

In the individual Yizkor book projects, the blue links appearing in the
table of contents of each project lead to the articles that have been
translated. I'm quite often asked about why articles that don't have blue
links can't be read and if a paid subscription is required to see the
"hidden" articles. No, there is no charge for reading the articles that have
been translated and, on the contrary, and our basic aim is to allow free,
global access to everyone for the translated Yizkor book material. So if the
article isn't available and you are interested in reading it, the next
logical step would be to assist with financial support in the translation of
the article. For this it is worthwhile looking at and donating to the
specific Translations Fund project if it is listed on the JewishGen-erosity
page (link at the end) or by contacting myself so that I can provide you
with an estimate of the cost of translation and you can decide if it's
something you are able to take on.

For those of you who would like to know more about the Yizkor Book Project
and will be at the upcoming IAJGS Conference in Seattle, I warmly recommend
you taking part in our Yizkor Book Birds of a Feather meeting. This year it
is being led by Max Heffler who is and has been an integral partner in our
Yizkor Book team and has a great deal of knowledge and experience regarding
the project.

For those of you who are going to the conference, I do wish you an excellent
and rewarding time whilst you're there.

And now for all the changes and additions that were carried out in the
Yizkor Book Project over July.

Updated inventories and other pages on Gesher Galicia website #galicia

Tony Kahane <tkahane@...>
 

Gesher Galicia is pleased to announce the significant revision of the
Inventories section, as well as many other pages, of our website.

AGAD, the Central Archive of Historical Records in Warsaw
The page on our website describing Jewish records at AGAD has been
freshly written, at: http://www.geshergalicia.org/agad_fond_300/

- Fond 300 is the major collection of Jewish records at AGAD, with
currently 3,219 books of vital records >from former Galicia - all but
three of them >from the eastern part. The inventory of Fond 300 is now
available as links >from this page in two versions - sorted by town,
sorted by file number within the fond. The inventory itself has been
much updated >from an earlier version, with recent new additions to the
fond included and with the format of the display improved.
Importantly, web links to the page images of the record books of Fond
300 - as scanned by AGAD and put onto their website - are included in
our own inventory, where available. At present page images for 2,953
of the books in this fond are available.

- Fond 424 is the smaller set of Jewish records at AGAD, with 191
files of loose material, in the form of vital record certificates and
various community records. We will be uploading an inventory of this
fond onto the website in September.


The State Archives of Ukraine
Gesher Galicia has also significantly updated its description of
Jewish records in the Ukrainian state archives. The description and
the accompanying revised inventory - again in two forms, by town and
by fond and volume number - can be found at:
http://www.geshergalicia.org/lviv-archives-jewish-records/

The majority of the material in this inventory is >from Fond 701 in the
State Historical Archives of Ukraine in Lviv (TsDIAL), and consists of
both registers of Jewish vital records (all but one >from the eastern
part of Galicia) and Jewish community records (largely >from the town
of Lwow). Also included are a set of books of Jewish vital records
(Fond 631) held in the State Archive of Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast
(DAIFO). We have indicated with shading all the files in this
inventory that we have already indexed and uploaded onto our All
Galicia Database.


Other inventories of Jewish records
Gesher Galicia is working on the full inventories of Jewish records
held in the Przemysl and Rzeszow states archives. We will be uploading
these onto the website in the fall.

Other improvements to our web pages
Over the past few months we have made major revisions to the content,
and in some cases the design, of our most frequently consulted web
pages (with the home page at: http://www.geshergalicia.org/ ). These
include the sections relating to membership and donations; projects;
the Galitzianer research journal; members' towns in Galicia; the
structure of Gesher Galicia; and parts of some other sections of the
site.


We hope these revisions to the website will make it easier for people
to find the information they are looking for. We will continue to
improve other parts of the site over the coming months.

pages (with the home page at: http://www.geshergalicia.org/ ). These
include the sections relating to membership and donations; projects;
the Galitzianer research journal; members' towns in Galicia; the
structure of Gesher Galicia; and parts of some other sections of the
site.


We hope these revisions to the website will make it easier for people
to find the information they are looking for. We will continue to
improve other parts of the site over the coming months.

Updated inventories and other pages on Gesher Galicia website #general

Tony Kahane <tkahane@...>
 

Gesher Galicia is pleased to announce the significant revision of the
Inventories section, as well as many other pages, of our website.

AGAD, the Central Archive of Historical Records in Warsaw
The page on our website describing Jewish records at AGAD has been
freshly written, at: http://www.geshergalicia.org/agad_fond_300/

- Fond 300 is the major collection of Jewish records at AGAD, with
currently 3,219 books of vital records >from former Galicia - all but
three of them >from the eastern part. The inventory of Fond 300 is now
available as links >from this page in two versions - sorted by town,
sorted by file number within the fond. The inventory itself has been
much updated >from an earlier version, with recent new additions to the
fond included and with the format of the display improved.
Importantly, web links to the page images of the record books of Fond
300 - as scanned by AGAD and put onto their website - are included in
our own inventory, where available. At present page images for 2,953
of the books in this fond are available.

- Fond 424 is the smaller set of Jewish records at AGAD, with 191
files of loose material, in the form of vital record certificates and
various community records. We will be uploading an inventory of this
fond onto the website in September.

The State Archives of Ukraine
Gesher Galicia has also significantly updated its description of
Jewish records in the Ukrainian state archives. The description and
the accompanying revised inventory - again in two forms, by town and
by fond and volume number - can be found at:
http://www.geshergalicia.org/lviv-archives-jewish-records/

The majority of the material in this inventory is >from Fond 701 in the
State Historical Archives of Ukraine in Lviv (TsDIAL), and consists of
both registers of Jewish vital records (all but three >from the eastern
part of Galicia) and Jewish community records (largely >from the town
of Lwow). Also included are a set of books of Jewish vital records
(Fond 631) held in the State Archive of Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast
(DAIFO). We have indicated with shading all the files in this
inventory that we have already indexed and uploaded onto our All
Galicia Database.

Other inventories of Jewish records
Gesher Galicia is working on the full inventories of Jewish records
held in the Przemysl and Rzeszow states archives. We will be uploading
these onto the website in the fall.

Other improvements to our web pages
Over the past few months we have made major revisions to the content,
and in some cases the design, of our most frequently consulted web

Looking For Death Records and Refugee Information ~1919 Ukraine/Romania #general

Shawn Weil
 

Jewish Genners-

My grandmother's family (BROITMAN) survived the pogroms of Savran,
Ukraine and fled 400 miles away to Bucharest, Romania c. 1919. In the
few years they lived there, family history has it that three of my
grandmother's siblings (Moshe, Lisa, Chamiel, all born between 1908 &
1918) died of "water poisoning." It is not clear to me if they died in
Becharest or somewhere in between. The family immigrated to Toronto,
Canada in Nov 1924 and to the US (Philadelphia then Brooklyn) in 1927.
I've found contemporary accounts of the pogroms in that region (link
below), but would like to know more about their lives as refugees and
more details about the deaths of her siblings.

Can anyone suggest sources I might use to find more information and/or
more context?

Iasi trip planned #romania

Carol Chaykin <cchaykin@...>
 

Hello Rom-SIg,

My mother's mother arrived in America with her brother and her stepmother in 1900, and joined
my great-grandfather, who had arrived in NYC (also, I believe, in 1900).

With the aid of JewishGen, I have located the index records for the graves in the Iasi cemetery of
my grandmother's birth mother, and for my grandmother's baby brother.

I plan to visit Romania in August, arriving in Bucharest on August 28, 2016.
I would appreciate any advice you can offer me regarding doing research in Iasi and/or Bucharest.

Thank you very much!
