ArkivDigital Free Access January 20-21, 2018 #scandinavia

ArkivDigital is offering free access All-in-one this weekend-Saturday,
January 20 and Sunday, January 21-European time. New users and users with
Base subscription get access to everything in their database, All-in-one
during the weekend. Their collections include religious records, estate
inventories, tax registers, military rolls, spy documents, passenger ship
manifests, Swedish American church books in Kansas, Minnesota and Nebraska,
aerial photos and many other historical documents. (You can read more about
their recent addition of tax registers in their blog-in English-- at:
http://blog.arkivdigital.net/). Additionally there are many name searchable
indexes that can make it easier for you to find your Swedish ancestors.

In order to search their indexes you need to install their new software
ArkivDigital2.0-web version. You must also register with them- no credit
card information is required, If you registered previously with ArkivDIgital
it is not necessary to reregister.
To register , download the software and start the program go to:
https://www.arkivdigital.net/products/adonline/try-for-free

After you have registered click on "start the program" -the blue button".
You can select English or Swedish as the language of choice in the upper
right hand corner. They recommend Chrome as your browser for the best
functionality. You will have to insert your email address and password
again. I was able to review a register in "demo" mode only since I tried
this before the start of the free time period. The records are crisp, and I
could enlarge the graphic.

If you think you might not have ancestors >from Sweden, there have been Jews
in Sweden since the early 1700's. albeit a small population. Sweden opened
its doors to Jews during WWII and again in 1956 when Jews were fleeing
Hungary and then again when fleeing Communists in 1968. According to the
Jewish Virtual Library the Jewish population increased tremendously between
1850 and 1920 due to immigration >from Russia and Poland. The population
reached nearly 6,500 in 1920. Small groups of German, Austrian, and Czech
Jews were allowed to immigrate to Sweden during the 1930's. Once the Nazi
brutalities were known Sweden opened its doors to Jews. In 1942, Sweden
allowed the immigration of 900 Norwegian Jews. In October 1943, Sweden gave
asylum to more than 8,000 Danish Jews, the whole Danish Jewish community,
which came to Sweden via small fishing boats. The Jewish population doubled
between 1945-1970.

Remember to wait for the free access time to begin on January 20-21-European
time.

Puzzling discrepancy in two sisters' birth records -- Russian #general

Mr Dmitry Nikelshpur
 

Hi,

I had posted images of two birth records, written in Russian, >from
late 19th century in Siedlce, Poland, at
https://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM63694

The first is Pesia GOLDVERT, and the second is Frimet GOLDVERT. I am
convinced these are my great-grandfather's, Zalman GOLDVERT's, sisters.

Recently I realized that the mother's, Asna Tauba's, maiden name in
both records is different -- in the first record, the maiden name looks
like LEIBMAN, while in the second record it looks like GOLDMAN.

I will be grateful for ideas / advice as to how to go about trying to
resolve this discrepancy? Were there also Hebrew copies of birth records
in Siedlce in late 19th century (I know that there were Russian and
Hebrew copies of records in some other parts of Europe).

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Thank you, and Kind Regards,
Dmitry Nikelshpur

Hello, Jewishgenners. I received a letter >from the archive in the town of
Dabrowa Byalistocka, which is in Poland on the border with Belarus. I was
looking for records for my other ancestral family of OLYAN.
They have informed me that they do not have any metric/vital records for
people of that town and don't know where they would be........So since
records are deemed "destroyed" >from WW2, is there still a possibility that
they exist elsewhere, i.e. Grodno, or Vilnius or even Warsaw?? Any thoughts
on this strange situation?

Meaning of "Servant" in 18th and 19th Century Hungarian Censuses #general

Hilary Osofsky
 

There are two censuses of Hunszdorf (now Huncovce, Slovakia) that contain
unusual references to servitude with respect to my ancestor/s, Marcus
Wolf/f, for which I've been unable to obtain a meaningful explanation --
although perhaps the translation is at the bottom of this.

The census of 1771 describes Marcus Wolff as being "in Hungary since 1729;
servant of the Jewish community."

And according to the census of 1838, Marcus Wolf was "extremely poor,
occupation as a servant to endure."

I would appreciate hearing >from anyone who has any insight into these
comments.

Thank you.

Help Identify a photograph #general

Mr Dmitry Nikelshpur
 

Hi,

I had posted images of front and back of a fairly old photograph at
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM63700

Can someone please help me date and, if feasible, identify this photograph?

Written on the back of the photograph, in Russian:

top: "AMROM" -- which I am assuming is the AMROMIN family. My family
tree has at least a two-fold connection to the AMROMIN family; my
grandfather's brother, Simon NIKELSHPUR was married to Sarah AMROMINA,
and my g-grandfather, Zalman GOLDVERT, was was married to Eva AMROMINA.
However, I do not believe this picture to be of either of the two women.

bottom: "S Smala" -- I am not sure whether this is a name, or has
some other meaning.

There are also two stamps on the back: "Photogropher Bernshteyn, Gomel"
"Member of Russian photography association".

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Kind Regards,
Dmitry Nikelshpur

This site has some graves documented by volunteers and you can make

they are marked on Google Maps for you:

Herskovits/Mayerhoffer Abauj Szina #hungary

pgbakos@...
 

I can't stand the success! Visit to the VIth District offices got me the details of the death of Sarolta Herskovits (my gggrandmother) in Budapest in 1915. She was 98, meaning whe was born about 1817 (There is a record and a burial site at the Synagogue but it provides nothing about parents).

She was the daughter of Mayer Herskovits and Hanna Mayerhoffer >from Abauj-Torna megye

Question: Anybody have any information on this couple?

Thanks

Peter G Bakos, normally in St. Crespin France, but briefly in Budapest searching Herskovits and Mayerhoffer >from Abauj Szina and vicinity.

By the way, you have to watch the clerks. They look in the index, find the wrong person and then say they have no record. When you give the date they simply say, "millions died". It took a lot of looking at different indeces in different ways before he turned to December 6 1915 and there she was. Had he done so at the beginning it would have been done more quickly=
