Dear friends of JRI-Poland:

On December 6st, we asked you - our users and supporters - to remember
JRI-Poland in your year-end giving plans.

You have responded generously and we thank you for your continued
support to enable us to expand our database with additional record
entries for your town(s). Many of you have given us the option of
earmarking your donation to "where it is needed most" and we appreciate
the flexibility that provides.

At the same time, many of you have written privately to let us know how
important JRI-Poland has been to your research and for some of you, how
the JRI-Poland database has resulted in life-changing discoveries. No
matter how often we receive such notes of appreciation, I know I speak
for the entire JRI-Poland leadership when I say we are always touched
to know that we have made a difference.

To all of you who have generously supported our activity this month
and in the past, we thank you again. To researchers who have not yet
made a donation to JRI-Poland, please take a moment to consider doing
so before the year end. No donation is too small.

The JRI-Poland online donations page can be found at:
www.jri-poland.org/support.htm

Note: Jewish Records Indexing - Poland is an independent non-profit
organization with its own administration, volunteers and fundraising.
Because JRI-Poland's database, discussion group and website are hosted
by JewishGen, as a courtesy to researchers, JRI-Poland enables its
data search results to be displayed on JewishGen's All Poland Database.

Best wishes for 2019 to all our friends. May it be a year of health
and continued success.

WALTER ELIAS
 

Sunday, January 27, 2019 at 1:00 pm Program of the MN Jewish Genealogical Society
Beth El Learning Center 5225 Barry St.W, St. Louis Park, MN 55416

We are pleased to announce our upcoming talk through MNJGS:
About the Talk: Susan Weinberg will be presenting, Immigration Through a 3-D Lens,
a perspective on immigration through the lens of laws, documents and family story.
With a focus on the 1900s, Susan will examine the immigration laws that affected
entry, the immigration documents that were created out of changes in the laws and
the stories of the Jews who came to America in the 1900s.

Susan has gathered stories >from Jewish elders who grew up in early immigrant
communities, Holocaust survivors who came in the 1940s-50s and immigrants >from the
former Soviet Union who came in the 1970s-90s. Using video clips >from those
interviews, she will tell a lively story of Jewish immigration to the United States
and the life of an immigrant juxtaposed with the documents and laws that framed
that experience.

This timely topic offers a perspective on immigration through the lens of family
story while providing attendees with tools to explore their own family's story.
Please register through the MNJGS.org website.
About Susan: Susan is an artist, author and genealogist who focuses her work on
family, cultural and community history. As a genealogist, Susan does research for
clients around the world. Her research has taken her to the Holocaust records in
Germany,archives of Poland and Lithuania, and her ancestral towns in Belarus,
Poland and the Ukraine. Susan created and maintains websites on ancestral towns for
Jewishgen.org. She is a frequent public speaker both locally and nationally. She
serves on the board of the Minnesota Jewish Genealogical Society and the Jewish
Historical Society of the Upper Midwest.

As an artist Susan has created artwork related to family history and the Holocaust.
She exhibits locally, nationally and internationally. Her work includes the Jewish
Identity and Legacy Project, an oral history series with Jewish elders. After
interviewing Jewish elders,Susan developed artwork based on their story, combining
story and art in the book We Spoke Jewish: A Legacy in Story.

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

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

">from Chasidic Synagogue to Revolutionary Activity" >from the newly-updated
Yizkor book of Jadow, Poland is a different kind of story than many of those
which I have posted here. Max (Moshe) Goodman was the son of a Chasid, but
despite his father's hopes for him to grow up as a religious Jew, but he
found "yoke of Torah was too heavy" and ultimately his father, saying "one
can be a religious Jew and also be a worker" agreed he should learn a trade
that would "befit our family." Goodman went to Warsaw to apprentice as an
engraver. It was the time of the first Russian revolution in 1904-1905 and
he was exposed to the "great revolutionary events and general strikes in all
parts of Russia... and social movements of workers, students and scientists."
It was also a time of fierce pogroms, and Goodman would carry a weapon
with him to defend himself and fellow Jews. His association with the Zionist
movement and other political activities finally landed him in prison and
exile. But he did one day make his way back to Jadow, and by 1910, had settled
in America. His detailed account provides a unique portrait of the times.

Identifying Students in 1902 Yeshiva Photo #galicia

Madeleine Isenberg
 

To All,

I've posted a photograph of a group of rabbinical students in the
Pressburg Yeshiva, in 1902. Pressburg is now Bratislava, Slovakia.

The same photo was posted last year (ID 62812) by another person
whose ancestor was a FRANKL. This time, I believe I recognized my
own grandfather, Leopold GOLDSTEIN, circled, as the person next to
one in 62812.

Does anyone know of other rabbinical students who might have been
there at the same time and are possibly in this photo?

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM70779

Please respond via the form provided on the ViewMate image page.

Thank you very much.

MODERATOR'S NOTE: Generally we'd consider an inquiry related to
Slovakia to be off topic. However we're posting this one because a
prominent yeshiva is likely to have drawn students >from a wide

Help with HAUSMAN ancestry #galicia

David Ellis
 

I'm looking for assistance with a brick wall in Galicia. My g-gf David
HAUSMAN (1866-1945) was said to have come >from Stryy, but I
find no records for him before the birth in Rozdol in 1892 of his first
child, my gm Etel. Nor can I find any records for David's father
Hersh HAUSMAN.

I did find the 1886 death record for a Nuchim HAUSMAN, son of
Hersz and Nechuma, stating that he was 90 years old. My theory is
that my gg-gf Hersh was a son of Nuchim, named after Nuchim's
father, but I have no evidence to support the theory.

There are other HAUSMAN families >from the area, descended >from
at least five documented children of Nuchim and his wife Czarna.
One of these children is a different David HAUSMAN (1857-1929),
presumably named after the same ancestor as my g-gf. I've
exchanged info with living descendants of this David's brothers
Leib and Aron but can't connect my family tree to theirs, at least
not yet.

Help will be very much appreciated! Please respond privately to the
e-mail address below.

(US-NYC) Department of Health and Mental Hygiene Rule on Accessing Birth and Death Records #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

New York City Rules Updates published the following reminder that the
amendment to the General Vital Statistics Provisions of the NYC Health Code
Article 207 becomes effective on January 1, 2019.

The rule addresses when birth and death records are to be transferred >from the New
York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYCDoHMH) to the Department of
Records and Information Services (DORIS). The embargo dates are 125 years after
birth and 75 years after death. As a result of the over 5,000 comments in response
to the then proposed rule with these embargo dates, the NYCDoHMH further proposed
and adopted an additional rule expanding the family members who could access the
records >from the NYCDoHMH during the embargo period.

The new rule expands those who can access a death record to great-great
grandchildren, nephews, nieces, aunts, uncles, grandnephews, and grandnieces.
Existing code already permitted the following family members: the spouse, domestic
partner, parent, child, sibling, grandparent or grandchild. The rule also expands
those family members who can access birth records of a deceased individual to:
spouses, domestic partners, parents of children over the age of 18, children,
siblings, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, grandchildren, great grandchildren,
grandnieces, and grandnephews.

While requests were to expand those to additional family members and professional
researchers with no family connection to the people's histories they are
researching should have broad access to birth and death records, both of these
requests were declined by the Department.

To read the notice see:
hhttps://rules.cityofnewyork.us/content/amendment-general-vital-statistics-provisions-article-207-nyc-health-code
Marriage records are under the purview of the City Clerk's Office, not of
the NYCDoHMH and therefore, are not covered by this rule.

To read previous articles on NYCDoHMH rule on access to birth and death
records, see the IAJGS Records Access Alert archives at:
