Re: SITE CITE - [Partial] list of Jewish cemeteries in Germany #germany

Yvonne:

Thanks for the link. Each page is mainly a republication of the German
Wikipedia article for the town where a cemetery is located. I doubt they
update the pages very often either.

Moreover, you have to know to look in the references to find the *real*
page for most of those cemeteries, i.e.,
http://www.alemannia-judaica.de/juedische_friedhoefe.htm, assuming the
Wiki article references it at all. Dr Hahn, who runs that site, keeps it
up-to-date and is always glad to receive more information.

Mind you, there's nothing wrong with doing what this site is doing,
because Wikipedia explicitly grants everyone the right to copy their
information. But it's not very helpful.

Re: Need help looking in JRI Poland #general

Alberto Guido Chester
 

Thanks to the nice genners that sent me good ideas on better
reasearching this and other databases. I have thanked them privately.

Let me thank specially Stanley Diamond and Mark Halpern for their
input. I have known these two persons through email for a couple of
decades (yes, this discussion group is old) and both have been helpful
and kind in every occasion.

By the way, my mail's title might lead to confusion. I have noticed
that JRI-Poland is a totally independent non-profit organization with
separate volunteers and fundraising >from Jewishgen.

While JRI-Poland allows its data to be displayed on JewishGen, that
data originates with JRI-Poland.

The records for my late father Uri SCHECHTER or his young siblings
have not been unearthed yet.

I will be writing their names in the tag lines in the hope info
appears in the future.

Re: Need help looking in JRI Poland #general

Mark Halpern
 

Alberto mentioned both JewishGen and JRI-Poland in the first sentence of
his message. Some of the readers of this discussion forum might think
that these two genealogical organizations are the same or affiliated
organizations. JRI-Poland is not affiliated with JewishGen. JRI-Poland
is a totally independent non-profit organization with separate
volunteers and fundraising. While JRI-Poland allows its data to be
displayed on JewishGen, that data clearly originates with JRI-Poland.

The records that Alberto mentions have all been indexed by JRI-Poland
with the support of many volunteers and contributors.

The JRI-Poland online database includes index entries of vital records
for Brzezany including four children of Moses Dawid SCHECHTER and Sara
SCHORR born between 1896 and 1902. The Brzezany records after 1902 do
not record any more births for this couple.

As Alberto mentions, his father's family also lived in Brzozdowce.
Unfortunately the Jewish vital records of Brzozdowce have not survived.
I think this explains why Alberto has not been able to find the birth
record of his father.

Dear Genners

I have been on Jewishgen for many years and made good use of the
magnificent JRI Poland database many times.

However, I have never been able to find my own father's birth
information.

I have looked it up using as many tricks as I can imagine, but
without luck.

Maybe someone is smarter?

Surname Schechter / Schachter / Shechter

Place of birth Brzozdowce, Galizia (where the family lived for a while)

registered)

Date of birth Oct. 1st, 1906

(Ireland) Findmypast Free Access to All Ireland Records #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Findmypast announced on 15 September online publication of more than 3
million historic Irish records released in association with the National
Archives of Ireland and Family Search International. The record collection
includes original wills, land valuation records, merchant navy crew lists,
passenger lists, and vital records such as births, marriages and deaths.

The fully indexed records span over 220 years of history >from collections
from the National Archives of Ireland, including Original Will Registers
1858-1920; Qualification and Convert Rolls 1701-1845; Valuation Office Books
1824-1856; and Merchant Navy Crew Lists 1857- 1922.

Findmypast states the collection will be free forever to search online.

Go to: http://www.findmypast.com/irish-ancestors You will need to register
with name, email address and password. When you access the site make certain
to click on Ireland as other collections are not free to search.

I have searched with "Jewish sounding names" and found on birth records
transcribed records and on ships manifests the actual record image and more.

Findmypast also has a free Irish Family History Guide . The Guide may be
found at:

While the Jewish population of Ireland has historically been small, there
has been a history of Jews in Ireland for nearly a thousand years. In the
20th century many Eastern European Jews, particularly >from Lithuania,
emigrated to Ireland due to the pogroms. Therefore, don't assume some of
your ancestors may not have lived in Ireland -even for a short period time--
before they emigrated elsewhere. It's worth searching the database. For
more information on the Jews of Ireland see:
