The March 2019 Issue of the "Galitzianer" #general

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

As the new editor of Gesher Galicia's quarterly research journal, the
"Galitzianer," I am delighted to announce the release of the March 2019 issue of
the journal.

This issue covers a wide range of towns, topics and time periods--as well as
answers to some interesting questions, like why did the funeral procession for a
renowned physician and academic include many of Krakow's "ladies of the night"? Why
was a surgeon who served honorably for decades in the Austro-Hungarian army denied
the bulk of his pension? How did the development of the railway system
make it possible for Galician Jews to emigrate--and also difficult for
them not to? In addition to answering these and other questions, this
issue also contains important information for research on eastern
Galician records >from the Ukrainian archives, a discussion of
tombstone inscriptions >from the Jewish cemetery in Kalush, a family
history of a distinguished line of academics and physicians, two
different perspectives on Galician emigration, and a synopsis of
detailed diary entries >from behind the front lines during World War I.

The articles comprising the March issue are:
- "Research Corner: Vital Records of Eastern Galicia" by Tony Kahane
- "A Journey through Generations: The Rosner Family Story" by Anna M.
Rosner, PhD
- ">from Krakow to Manchester: Jewish Migration in the Mid-Nineteenth
Century" by Geoffrey M. Weisgard
- "An Immigration Chain: >from Rohatyn to the US" by Alexander Feller
- "House of Eternity: The Jewish Cemetery in Kalush" by Deborah Schultz
- "Map Corner: Discovering Old Jewish Cemeteries in Galicia" by Jay Osborn
- "The War and Beyond: Bernhard Bardach's Diaries" by Peter C.
Appelbaum and Helmut Konrad

The "Galitzianer" is a membership benefit of Gesher Galicia, though
anyone is invited to submit articles on Galicia-related themes. For
more details on our submissions policy, please visit

New online 1930s population records for Rzeszow, Poland. #general

Viv Bayer
 

For anyone researching family in Rzeszow in the late 1930s, new records are
available in the online Polish archives.
The translation for these record sets is 'People movement control files'. They
contain information such as name, date & place of birth, parents, spouse (also dob,
place & parents) & children (if living at home), occupation & religion. On the
second page of each record is their Rzeszow address plus addresses & dates for when
they arrived in Rzeszow or were living in other towns. The records seem to cover
from the mid 1930s until at least 1940. If someone has died or moved away during
the period, it is marked in red.
The records are sorted alphabetically by surname. Please note, each record is 2
pages.

They can be found here starting on tab 258.
https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/59/1/0/str/258/15?ps3DTrue#tabJednostki

I only know some basic words in Polish so if there are any Polish speakers who are
able to translate the various section headings, that would be appreciated.
regards,
Viv Bayer

Regina RENAUD (nee STERN)- UK, Canada #general

Rony Golan
 

I am seeking your help in trying to establish the whereabouts of Regina RENAULD
(nee STERN).

Regina STERN (b. circa. 1914-1918) married in 1940 in the UK (Dr.) Reginals RENAUD.

We know they moved to Canada and lived in Toronto. We traced them in several lists
until about 2006. I assume Regina may have died at that year.

However, I am unable to trace their death records nor graves in any database or
cemetery.

I will be happy with any help you may offer.

Please reply privately, unless the reply is of interest to the entire group.

Thank you,

Rony Golan

Seeking descendants of Anna/Annie KORN #general

Sharon Korn <s.r.korn@...>
 

I am seeking information about and descendants of Anna or Annie KORN. Her parents
were Louis and Hannah. She was born in or near Pilzno, Austria, now Poland, in
about 1870 and immigrated to the U.S. with her parents and siblings in about 1875.
So far as is known , she always claimed to have been born in New York. Siblings
were Elizabeth/Lizzie, Peter, Ida, Rose, Pauline, and Mildred.

Annie was probably married young, possibly to a man with the surname REILLY. She
was either widowed or divorced. The family believes she probably had no children,
but we don't know for a fact. She loved to travel and could have died in Latin
America.

I would appreciate any information. Please answer privately.
