Hi,

I am trying to determine if you have finished uploading ALL Beltsy cemetery records to the JOWBR
database. I have the grave number from  Miriam Weiner site, but cannot find it in JOWBR 

Thank you.

MODERATOR NOTE - Please remember to sign your name and the town and country where you live.
Also, it is recommended that you list the last names of family members you are researching (IN ALL
CAPS) along with the towns or countries where they may have lived.

Question on Married Womens Surnames (and Childrens) #galicia

Linda Chism <chism.linda@...>
 

Hello, a question on surnames of Jewish married women in 1900 era. In
the Galicia Jewish communities, it seems many women in the Records did
not take their husbands surname. In the families I am researching,
Feldhorn and Margulies, (Tarnopol and Lwow) in one family some of the
sons were Feldhorn and some Margulies in the various Records, but all
had the same two parents.

I can understand the split between religious and civil marriage
causing different legal surnames in the parents, but I would welcome
help to understand the custom of children's surnames, and also to
understand the custom of married women's surnames and how they
referred to themselves in daily life. Thank you!

Records in Belarus Gone....... #general

David Goldman
 

Greetings, everyone. Further to my last posting about the Shapiro research
my certainty that the family identified by the archives is my Shapiro family
has now fallen substantially. The names and namesakes and dates of death and
birth and mention just don't add up.

To make matters worse, more than one source has indicated to me that
metric/vital records >from the eastern region of Belarus today bordering on
Russia and the bordering Russian areas simply no longer exist in Minsk or
anywhere else, and were "destroyed" during World War II.

Does anyone far more expert on events during World War II than I know why
that region should have faced that kind of documentary destruction as
compared to archival resources in Poland and even throughout Ukraine??

It has essentially made it next to impossible to confirm or clarify family
history beyond the odd census record for ancestry in that part of the Old
Country.

Thanks,
David Goldman

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

The story of Tuvia Bielski was well known even before the 2008 film "Defiance"
that told the story of the refuge for Jews he created in Belarus' Naliboki
forest and his campaign of armed resistance to kill German collaborators and
undermine Nazi missions. His efforts are also recounted in detail in "The
Partisans of Tuvia Belski," a long chapter in the Yizkor book of Navahrudak.
The chapter chronicles that beginnings of his "otriad" (brigade), his emphasis
on "on absorbing all Jewish escapees," a detailed description of the camp and
life in it, and the health problems endured by people in the camp. What
follows here is an excerpt that brings the story to a close by telling what
happened after the liberation and what the people of the otriad found when
they were able to return home. The "Commander" in the excerpt is, of course,
Bielski.

Re: Jewish birth, marriage and death records recorded in church archives #germany

Hess, Jonathan M <JMHESS@...>
 

Particularly in small towns in Germany it was not unheard of for Jewish
birth records to be housed in the local church. Through Ancestry,
I've found similar records for my ancestors and family members
in Gundelsheim (Wuerttemberg), which Ancestry mistakenly wants
to integrate into my family tree as baptisms.

Hope this helps.

Re: [Possibly Jewish records found in] Baden Lutheran Kirchenbuecher? #germany

Do not be alarmed by the church book reference. You can go directly
to the Baden-Wuerttenberg archives at the following site:

http://www.landesarchiv-bw.de/web/47245

This site is organized by regions and cities, and the books/volumes
are a compilation of Katholisches (Catholic), Evangelische (Luthern),
Reformierte (Reformed/Calvinist), and ISRAELITEN (JEWISH) records
organized by year.

It takes a bit of digging, but you may find the information for which
you are looking under the Israeliten sections.

I have had good luck with these records getting back to the early 1800's.
