Update to KehilaLinks site for Nowy Targ, Malopolska, Poland #hungary

Madeleine Isenberg
 

To SIGgers,

This is to advise you that I have updated the KehilaLinks site for
Nowy Targ, Malopolska,
Poland(https://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/nowy_targ/).

While Nowy Targ is in Galicia, Poland, many of these families also
migrated slightly southward across the Tatra Mountains into Slovakia
and Czech Republic, as well as those who eventually emigrated to the
USA. So names in one of those areas may be connected or descended
from people who once lived in Nowy Targ.
I am always looking for more information copies of photos or documents
that tell us more about who once lived in that part of the world, so I
welcome people to contact me.

Re: Given Name Kisiel in Galicia #general

Alexander Sharon
 

Meron,

Kisiel as a first name was actually quite popular.

As always, Jewish Records Indexing - Poland (JRI-P) database is very handy
in assisting in resolution of those unique queries.

Per JRI-P for data already published, name Kisiel (exact spelling) is listed
933 times.

The most popular provinces bearing name Kisiel are Lwow (292 named Kisiel)
and Tarnopol (141) in Eastern Galicia.

In the historical Russian Poland two Kisiel named leading guberniyas were
Siedlce (168 Kisiels) and Lublin (141 Kisiels).

Name is an Yiddish variations of Hebrew Yekutiel (Yekuthiel) one of the
Moses names which means "God will feed".

BTW, "Kisiel", literally means in Polish a jelly, well deserved desert for
those who managed to eat borscht and kasha without extra complains.

Sidney.

I found a Kisiel SIEGMAN in the Gesher Galicia DB, in the property owner
registry. I of course cannot prove or disprove that he was "my" Kisiel
SIEGMAN. However, based on how common the name is, I would like to be able
to estimate the chances that it is he.

I would appreciate it if anyone could give me an idea how common Kisiel is
as a given name. I personally had never encountered it before.

Reichsvereinigung der Juden Database #germany

Lande
 

A year or two ago the International Tracing Service in Bad Arolsen posted
three of its collections on the webs---go online to Archives ITS Arolsen and
then Digital Collections. The most important of these are some thousands of
Reichsvereinigung der Juden in Deutschland registration cards, which are
provided in alphabetical order. All Jews still resident in Germany 1938-41
were required to register, though only about 30,000 of these cards remain
available.

For some time, using a variety of other sources of information, I have
been indexing and supplementing the information on these cards. So far I
have completed names beginning with the letters A-L, 17,396 cards and I hope
to complete the alphabet before my 119th birthday. My database is available
at www.stevemorse.org/jewishroof. Unlike the ITS version, which can only be
searched by family name, this database can be searched by other factors such
as maiden name, place of birth and, even, destination, in the case of
emigrees. For example, 166 persons emigrated to Argentina and 949 emigrated
to the United States. Where a registrant was known by more than one name I
have entered both and linked them.

Please do not ask me for copies of any cards, since these are available on
the ITS website, but, if there are other questions I will try to help.

Re: Archives of Dabrowa Bialystocka (now Poland) #general

Alexander Sharon
 

David,

First of all, there appears to be confusion as to the town's past name.

Polish language version of the website for Dabrowa Bialostocka (Bialystok's
Dabrowa) says that name Dabrowa Bialostocka has been established on March
10. 1961. Previously place was known as Dabrowa Grodzienska (eg Grodno's
Dabrowa).
Please refer to: https://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/D%C4%85browa_Bia%C5%82ostocka

But while searching available interwar period sources, one can see that town
under the name of Dabrowa Grodzienska or Dabrowa Bialostocka doesn't show
up.

Town was actually known as Dabrowa, district Sokolka, Bialystok Province or
post office Dabrowa near Grodno. In 1929 Poland Business Directory on page
114 for Dabrowa, you will see two entries for your family members:
F. Oljan (check under header "Piwiarnie"- Beer breweries), and
M.Oljan, (Check under header "Artykuly spozywcze" - Food store)

http://data.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/1929/loadtop.htm?0114

There is a an Yzkor Book for town "Dubrova" excellently written by Michael
Nevins.

https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Dabrowa_Bialostocka/Dabrowa_Bialostocka.html

There are also 58 entries in JGFF database for Dabrowa Bialostocka, and
there is no your name as researcher or researched by you family name Olyan
are listed.

Re: Galacia and Dolgicion #poland

Hi Andrew:

My guess is the town of Dlugoszyn at coordinates 5015, 1915 about 31
miles WNW of Krakow. This town was in Galicia before WWI going back to
the early 19th Century. Galicia was a province of the Austrian Empire.
Jewish vital records for Dlugoszyn were registered in nearby Chrzanow.
See http://www.jri-poland.org/town/chrzanow.htm for information about
those records and the volunteers who coordinate the indexing of those
records.
