Kruche or Krutzy (Russia) #general

aamiel@...
 

My friend's grandfather lists his town as "Krutzy, Russia". On another document
it is written "Konze, Russia". The family always pronounced it as Kruche.

I'm having trouble finding it on the usual sources. Does anyone know where it
might be?

1945 Queens burial #general

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

I am searching for the grave of a relative who died in Queens in about 1945.
I do not know the exact date of death or even the exact name she was buried
under (her children used several different surnames). I called every Jewish
cemetery in Queens I could find, but none found a record of her. Does
anyone have suggestions, other than asking NY to do a wide-ranging search,
or manually searching countless obituaries?

Thanks very much.

Re: Zaleshchiki records from the State Archive of Ternopol Oblast #galicia

Mark Halpern
 

Moshe:

There are currently no formal indexing projects being conducted
by JRI-Poland or any other organization in any Archives in
Ukraine that houses records for the former Austrian province of
Galicia. The only indexing project for this area (eastern
Galicia) is for the Jewish vital records housed at the AGAD
Archives in Warsaw.

To access records at the State Archive of Tarnopol Oblast, the
State Archive in Lviv, or other Archives in Ukraine, you can
contact the Archive directly, hire a professional researcher, or
visit yourself.

Indexing of valuable collections of Jewish vital records would
surely find a home. Each organization -- e.g. JRI-Poland,
JewishGen, Gesher Galicia -- has guidelines for
acceptance/inclusion of indexing projects. You should contact
these organizations privately to determine if such a project is
viable. Gesher Galicia has a Research Grant Program and recently
awarded a grant to the Stanislawow 1939 Census Database Project.

Hello All,

Today I looked at Miriam Weiner's website (
http://www.rtrfoundation.org/ )
and searchedfor records for the town of Zaleshchiki, (Galicia,
then Poland,
now Ukraine, 48°38´ 25°44).

The website describes the records as follows:

-1924-1937 Kehal/Jewish Com

-1927-1928 School Records

-1871-1879; 1882-1902; 1939 Notary Records
.
-1937 Local Government

and indicates that they are all located at the "State Archive
of Ternopol
Oblast".

Does anyone know how I might access these records?

Would indexing of these records qualify for inclusion in any
existing
projects, formal or informal?


All the best,

Good evening

My name is Leonard Fertleman, a member of the Central [Synagogue, London].

I am currently restoring a memorial candelabra which was made in 1920 to
commemorate the 19 members of our shul who lost their lives in the Great War
1914/1918. It has 19 candles, is 5 ft high and has a brass 3ft diameter rim
supporting the candles with the names of the soldiers engraved in it. It
will be lit in the main Synagogue this Kol Nidre; the first time for fifty
years.

I am trying to trace members of [the following] families to gain more
information on the deceased and or their children / grandchildren. Can you
help?

Thanks Leonard Fertleman

The WUDL family #hungary

Alexander Woodle <awoodle@...>
 

Hello H-SIG,

I have been a subscriber to this group for quite some time, but I have never
introduced myself. Some of you may know me >from the Bohemia-Moravia SIG in
which you can find some of my contributions. I have been pretty successful
in finding my Wudl ancestors back to 17th century West Bohemia.

More recently, however, thanks to the All Hungarian database, two Vudls have
surfaced (Latin not having the letter W substituted V) in the 1828 land tax
census. I am sure that all Wudls are related and that these gentlemen
emigrated to the lower reaches of the Austrio-Hungarian Empire to flee the
marriage restrictions. I have since found numerous Wudls in subsequent
generations who lived in what is now northwestern Romania. I have not found
the "smoking gun" linkage between these first emigrants, but I have
conducted a 12 marker DNA test with a Wudl family in California that are
Jewish and whose origins are Hungarian. They fled >from Vienna in 1930's to
Bolivia before emigrating to US in 1958. We matched perfectly. I am still
researching to connect all the dots to conclusively prove our relationship.

Recently, perusing an online Romanian phone directory, I found another Wudl
living today in the same area of Romania. I contacted him and he responded
with surprise thinking there were no other Wudls anywhere. His family came
from the very same village as the family mentioned above! We sent him a
DNA kit, but for some reason our contact has been lost and the kit never
mailed in.

In a future message I will mention the villages I am interested in to see if
some of you may be familar or have visited them. In the meantime, if any of
you can shed any more light on Bohemian emigration to these regions or if
any have any knowledge of this family or any suggestions for further
research, I would certainly be grateful.

Sincerely,

they weren't in a camp, but on the march. the army set up a field hospital, for those too sick to march 4 kilometers a day, promising to provide them with mechanized transport. they burnt the hospital 2 days later. burning the hospital wouldn't have done much to stop the spread of the disease, since almost everybody already had it - it was just plain murder of a group of sick, unarmed slave labourers.
