Gesher Galicia's All Galicia Database and JewishGen's All-Poland and All-Ukraine Databases start data linking agreement #poland

Asparagirl <asparagirl@...>
 

Gesher Galicia is proud to announce that we have started a new data
sharing initiative with our friends at JewishGen.org!

Now when you search for a person or a place in the All Galicia
Database (freely available at http://search.geshergalicia.org/), at
the bottom of the page of results, you'll see links to matching search
results in relevant databases at JewishGen. And when you do a search
in JewishGen's All-Ukraine Database or All-Poland Database, at the
bottom of their page of results you'll see links to relevant matches
in the All Galicia Database.

This data sharing is accomplished using Gesher Galicia's new API
(Application Programming Interface), which allows our data to stay
solely on our own servers, but still allows other organizations'
computer systems to quickly see if there are any appropriate matches
in our holdings, and generates the appropriate direct links.
Similarly, JewishGen's data holdings remain solely on their own
servers, but they're able to generate deep links to relevant data
sets, where appropriate.

This important data sharing work was first discussed a few years ago,
with the support and cooperation of our late President Pamela
Weisberger z''l, and we are proud to finally be able to bring this
work to fruition in her memory. Her name remains as a co-author on
the data sharing agreement that was signed by the two groups.

Thank you to Warren Blatt and Michael Tobias for all their hard work
at JewishGen to help make this project into a reality.

Gesher Galicia hopes to use this new API to share our data -- which
currently stands at 455,115 records >from 294 different data sources,
and growing every month -- with more non-profit organizations in the
near future. Happy searching!

Vital Records for Various Towns #ukraine

Chuck Weinstein <cmw521@...>
 

All of the Vital Records we have access to are listed on Town pages at Ukraine SIG's home page (www.jewishgen.org/Ukraine). There are a lot of vital records for towns that are held in various archives in Ukraine. Few have been fully cataloged and even fewer have been digitized. The Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People and FamilySearch.org hold most of the latter. We are working with the Central Archives to acquire and index their records, but it takes a Town Leader, first of all, to create a project, and then to coordinate a fund raising project to acquire and translate the records. If the towns you are interested in do not have a Town Leader, records, if they are available, will not be acquired, indexed, and put on line by us.

See your town's page for a list of records we are able to acquire. Contact me about becoming a Town Leader if you want to help us go beyond that point. Thanks!

The vital records of the town Trovitz (Torhovytsia) #ukraine

דוד נ.א.
 

Hello
I am looking for information about vital records of the town Trovitz
(Torhovytsia) in the middle of the 19th century.
[1900s District: Dubno
1900s Province: Volhynia]

Is such records existed?
Where they managed? (I know cases that the town was small,
Records were administered the adjacent large town).
Will they survive?
Where they have been saved?

Thank you

South Jersey Jewish marriage records #general

Steve Pickoltz
 

I've hit a brick wall.

I'm trying to find my great grandparents marriage record. The local governments,
county governments and the New Jersey State Archive records office have no
records of this event. I am thinking that may be they only had a Jewish marriage
license and it was never registered as any kind of a civil marriage.

This marriage took place between 1891 and 1910. The area where it might have
taken place is Salem County New Jersey in and around the numerous Jewish farming
colonies of that time. The couple in question would have been Berisch (Bernard)
PICKHOLTZ and Bluma BERNSTEIN.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Name Shneur Zalman #general

David Goldman
 

I had a great-great-grandfather back in Nova Ushitsa (probably the town of
Kalyus) in southwestern Ukraine named Shneur Zalman KRASINSKY. Not a single
person I ever asked of my relatives knew whether their ancestry or family
customs were Lubavitch, since the first rebbe of Lubavitch was Rabbi Shneur
Zalman of Liadi. Considering how far Nova Ushitsa is >from the centers of
Lubavitch chassidim I have always assumed Shneur Zalman was likely to have
been common among non-Chabad Jews as well.

My great-great-grandfather was probably born in the late 1820s, and Rabbi
Shneur Zalman died in 1813 to the far north in Hadiach, Ukraine, so I guess
it is theoretically possible that my great-great-grandfather was named for
him.

Does anyone have any thoughts about this issue in terms of someone being
named Shneur Zalman despite being far >from the center of the Chabad chassidim?

Thanks!
