I found the note about the Gymnasium in Warsaw by George Mason very
interesting. My husband's father Jack {Icchock} Mizne would have also
attended it. He was born 1911 in Warsaw. Thank you for the information. Do
you know anything about the gymnasium for the women? His mother Sara
Breiterman would have attended that also.
Thanks. Ramona Mizne

Subject: JRI-Poland makes searchable a massive collection of new/updated
data.
From: SMSDIAMOND@aol.com
Date: Sun, 27 Nov 2016 16:28:59 -0500
X-Message-Number: 1

Thanks to the JRI-Poland leadership team, our many volunteers and
generous supporters, 2016 continues to be an extremely significant year
in the growth of the jri-poland.org database.

It would be unfair of me to single out the many volunteers who have
contributed to this latest batch. But many will be posting announcements
about the newly indexed and extracted records, the updated and expanded
index files for many towns, and the linking of JRI-Poland search results
to digital images on the Polish State Archives "National Digital Archive"
website.

This is the third large batch of data uploaded and made searchable this
year.
The new and updated entries are >from 36 towns and include 64,000 totally
new records and more than 50,000 updated records

In addition to these new/updated record entries that are now searchable
in the JRI-Poland database, professionals have data entered tens of
thousands of records that are not yet searchable online. These include
record entries for which there were previously only basic indices but now
are fully extracted. These individual data sets will be searchable online
when the cost for each town is fully covered.

Researchers interested in the latest status for their town(s) are invited
to write to [TownName]@jri-poland.org.

Reminder: the JRI-Poland search system has many features and
options that are exclusive to JRI-Poland. (While JRI-Poland indices
are displayed on and form the major component of the JewishGen
All-Poland Database, these additional features for searching are only
available as a standard option when you use the JRI-Poland search
page. So, bookmark the JRI-Poland search page the next time
you use it.)

JRI-Poland invites and encourages your support for the work on your
town. We are particularly hopeful that researchers using our database
who have not contributed in the past, will join with their family members
and landslayt to support further work on their town's records. Please
remember that JRI-Poland is an independent organization with its own
administration and fundraising, and that donations to JewishGen do not
cover the cost of indexing records >from Poland.

To donate to projects for the extraction of records for your town project,
please go to _www.jri-poland.org/support.htm_
(http://www.jri-poland.org/support.htm) . No donation is too small.

Hello Isabel,
My father attended what he referred to as "The Warsaw Gymnasium" >from 1922
to 1930. Back in those days, public education only went as far as the 7th
grade. If parents had the means, they would send their children to private
schools known as Gymnasiums, which then gave them an education that prepared
them to go to University. I eventually learned that what my father referred
to as "The Warsaw Gymnasium" was actually known as the "First Boy's High
School of the Trade Union of Teachers of Polish High Schools in Warsaw"
[1-sze Gimnazjum Meskie Zwiasku Zawodowego Nauczycielstwa Polskich Szkol
Srednich w Warszawie]. This school later became known as The Men's Private
High School Collegium and a monograph about the history of the school,
written by former pupils, was published titled, "Gimnazjum Collegium w
Warszawie", edited by Witold Janusz Foeller in 1997. A copy of this
monograph can be found at the library of the Pedagogical College in Warsaw
[ Address: Wyzasza Szkola Pedagogiczna w Warszawie, ul. Smulikowksiego 6/8,
00-389 Warszawa. Possible email address: zsz@znp.edu.pl]. I have never been
able to identify where The Warsaw Gymnasium was located in the 1920s. If
anyone has that information, I would be grateful to receive it. I hope this
information is of some help to you, Isabel. Good luck in your research.

Warsaw property restitution - new resource #warsaw #poland

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

Warsaw Researchers,

There is a new resource to help the former owners of thousands of
Warsaw properties, or their heirs, seek restitution. For details,
please see the World Jewish Restitution Organization's website at
http://wjro.org.il/our-work/property-restitution-in-warsaw. This is
time sensitive. According to a new Polish law, there will be a
certain period of just six months for claimants to come forward.

These properties were the subject of claims filed after 1945. The
City of Warsaw has not released the original claimants' names, only
the properties' addresses, so I used Warsaw Homeowners Directories
from 1939/1940 and 1930 to identify former owners (who might or might
not be the claimants or their relatives). I also provided a guide for
further online research (e.g., using other directories, maps) at
http://wjro.org.il/cms/assets/uploads/2016/12/LoganGuide-v3.pdf, which
might be useful in supporting claims. You might also find supporting
information in the government publication Monitor Polski, which
announced many post-War inheritance proceedings. To search Monitor
Polski by a homeowners's surname or a property's mortgage number, go
to http://www.monitorpolski.gov.pl/Wyszukiwanie.aspx. At the bottom
of that page, enter a search term next to "Tre=C5=9B=C4=87" (e.g., Klajtman=
or
3190) and then press the "Szukaj" button on the right to search. Some
of this material has been indexed by http://warszawa.getto.pl/, but I
do not know how much.

Please note that I am unable to give advice about the claims process,
but, if you find a match using WJRO's database and have questions
about further directory-based research, please feel free to contact me
privately.

Warszawa Research Group #Warsaw #Poland Warsaw property restitution - new resource #warsaw #poland

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

Warsaw Researchers,

There is a new resource to help the former owners of thousands of
Warsaw properties, or their heirs, seek restitution. For details,
please see the World Jewish Restitution Organization's website at
http://wjro.org.il/our-work/property-restitution-in-warsaw. This is
time sensitive. According to a new Polish law, there will be a
certain period of just six months for claimants to come forward.

These properties were the subject of claims filed after 1945. The
City of Warsaw has not released the original claimants' names, only
the properties' addresses, so I used Warsaw Homeowners Directories
from 1939/1940 and 1930 to identify former owners (who might or might
not be the claimants or their relatives). I also provided a guide for
further online research (e.g., using other directories, maps) at
http://wjro.org.il/cms/assets/uploads/2016/12/LoganGuide-v3.pdf, which
might be useful in supporting claims. You might also find supporting
information in the government publication Monitor Polski, which
announced many post-War inheritance proceedings. To search Monitor
Polski by a homeowners's surname or a property's mortgage number, go
to http://www.monitorpolski.gov.pl/Wyszukiwanie.aspx. At the bottom
of that page, enter a search term next to "Tre=C5=9B=C4=87" (e.g., Klajtman=
or
3190) and then press the "Szukaj" button on the right to search. Some
of this material has been indexed by http://warszawa.getto.pl/, but I
do not know how much.

Please note that I am unable to give advice about the claims process,
but, if you find a match using WJRO's database and have questions
about further directory-based research, please feel free to contact me
privately.

(Poland) Property Claims Restoration for City of Warsaw -Time Limitation Due to New Legislation #poland

Jan Meisels Allen
 

On 17 September 2016 a new law took effect in Poland that results in
limiting the rights of claimants to those who have filed under the
Warsaw Decree. The new law terminates many private property claims
in the City of Warsaw after 1945 (Warsaw Law) - unless the heirs
come forward to reactivate the claim. Please note the new law does
NOT permit for new claims to be filed, but rather only permits claims
already filed with the City of Warsaw under the Warsaw Decree.

The original Decree issued in 1945 transferred ownership of all
properties within the prewar boundaries of Warsaw back to the city
of Warsaw. This only pertains to the City of Warsaw as prescribed
in the Warsaw Decree and no other parts of Poland.

Claimants must be able to prove their rights to the property or they
will lose their rights to the property and the property will be
transferred to the state treasury or the City of Warsaw. When Poland
was under the Communist regime, the regime seized much of the pre-war
property of all Poles, and therefore the claims languished for decades.

The law permits only 6 months beginning >from the date of publication
on the new law and it became effective in mid-September time is of
the essence.

The World Jewish Restitution Organization (WJRO) has created a webpage
with a searchable database to help you identify whether you or your
relative may have filed a claim under the Warsaw law. For background
information on the new Warsaw property legislation see:

Original url:
http://wjro.org.il/cms/assets/uploads/2016/11/Backgrounder-
Warsawlaw29-11-v5PDF.pdf

What WJRO did was match the street addresses which the City of Warsaw
published -- see below-- with the property owners found in the 1939/1940
Warsaw Homeowners Directory. Go to: http://warsawproperty.org/ after
reading the aforementioned website on WJRO. Thank you to Jewish
genealogist, Logan Kleinwaks (genealogyindexer.org) for his assistance
in digitizing and using the Polish directories and other aids to help
WJRO accomplish this feat.

Not all homes listed are necessarily those previously owned by Jews.
However, there was a large Jewish population in pre-war Warsaw.

In June 2016 the City of Warsaw published over 2600 street addresses
with open claims without publishing the names of the claimants or
owners. See: http://tinyurl.com/hxhewqt

Hi, all. I'm hoping to find out about birth/marriage/death records
for Kamienczyk, Poland. It's not listed as a town in JRI-Poland's
database (though a relatively small number of results come up if you
query just for the town--not records filed in the town but otherwise
referred to in records >from other cities), and I've not been able to
find information on JewishGen. Any leads? Thanks!
