Bug River.

Pre 19th Century Jewish Related Records in Poland's Archives #general

Martin Davis <dawidowicz@...>
 

I was recently reading an old volume of the Polin - the publication of the
Institute for Polish Jewish Studies - when I came across the following
footnote to a reference "We find the following entry in the census of the
Jewish population in Dzialoszyn (Wielun region)" and then the footnote give
the Polish State Archive [AGAD] catalogue location - Wielunskie varia,
number 6, folio 80. On further investigation I discovered that in fact the
census is a fairly detailed survey of 1765 - a very early date - which seems
to have been commissioned for the Dzialoszyn Kahal and which is in three
parts:

1. List of Jewish houses and their inhabitants in Dzialoszyn
2. List the Jewish houses and their inhabitants of Kepno
3. Lists of Jewish inhabitants (name and patronymic surname) in the whole
Wielun district, separately for each parish

This is a revelation to me as I have been digging away for information on
these communities for some time and had never realised that such a precise
early record existed.

So I am now left wondering - and this is my question to Genners - if there
is some accessible data base that exists which identifies pre 19th century
Jewish records and would be of help to those Genners researching Poland or
the old Polish/Lithuanian Commonwealth?

Re: Family KIWI from Samter / Golub-Dobzryn #general

Ira Leviton
 

Dear Cousins,

Gunther Roth mentioned that his grandmother was born in Golub-Dobrzyn
in 1862, and Roger Lustig commented that these towns were not combined
at that time.

Roger is correct - the two were not joined together until 1951. Golub
was more industrial, and Dobrzyn had many more Jewish residents. There
is also a town Dobrzyn nad Wisla, but this is a distinct town located
not too far away >from the present Golub-Dobrzyn.

The landsmanshaft for Dobrzyn is still around, having merged with the
one >from nearby Rypin in 1977. I have many of the old records and have
visited the cemetery plots, but the surname KIWI, or others like it, is
not in our records. It's possible that her family was >from Dobrzyn but
didn't join the landsmanshaft, or that they were >from Golub.

There is one entry for KIEWE >from Golub-Dobrzryn in the Jewish Gen
Family Finder.

1795 Ostroh Census Translation #general

Mel Werbach
 

We are now in the process of translating the entire 1795 census
of the Jewish residents of Ostroh. While just enough money has
been contributed to fund the translation of the listings, we need
additional funds to be able to fund the translation of the
remaining text which apparently provides some explanation of the
listings and of the census procedure.

Contributors will not only receive a copy of the actual sortable
Excel spreadsheet of all the census listings well before it is
released to the public with much more limited sorting on JewishGen,
but they will also receive a copy of this additional material.
(Since this census was taken before surnames, sorting is
particularly helpful for identifying family members.)

In order to make a contribution, go to the Ukraine SIG Fundraising
page
(http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=22).
Fill in the box to the right of the line labeled "Ostroh (Ostrog)
Document Acquisition and Translation Projects" with the amount you
wish to donate and press "Donate," then follow the instructions that
come up.

Thank you for whatever help you can provide to make this full
translation possible. You should be getting your copy of the translated
materials within the next few weeks!

Looking for Irena SOKOTOUSKA Targowa 15/46 Warschau #poland

Charles Mahler
 

Hello Everybody,

During the war Karol BUSCHEL, born in Kolomeyya and an importer-exporter
ofeggs in Lemberg, was in Poland as he was mobilised as an officer in
the Polish army. His wife, Ella MAHLER, my aunt, was living with her two
children Liliane and Armand, in the house of my grand-parents MAHLER in
Antwerp Belgium. I recently discovered some correspondence between them
from 1940 to July 1944. This letters were written and addressed to
non-Jewish intermediaries: a Madeleine DURT in Antwerp and Irena
SOKOTOUSKA living in Warschau Targowa 15/46. Irena's mother's given name
was Wlada.

Is there any possibility to discover some information about this brave
woman in Warschau?

Best regards
Charles Mahler

Birzai District Internal Passport files #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

Over 10,000 Panevezys District internal passport records, 1919-1940, have
been translated. However, some towns are not included even though they were
in the Panevezys District prior to World War I.

Many towns in the Panevezys district were in the Birzai District during
the 1919-1940 period. We have discovered a separate Birzai District internal
passport file in the Central Archive in Vilnius. Work has just started on
translating those files.

Towns in Birzai District in 1919-1940 - Birzai - Joniskelis - Kirkilai -
Kvetkai - Nemunelio Radviliskis - Papilys - Pasvalys - Pumpenai - Pusalotas
- Salociai - Vabalninkas - Vaskai.

I cannot guarantee that internal passports were applied for in every one
of those towns but there is a good chance that all of them are represented.
If you would like to receive all of the Birzai District internal passport
records, as they are translated, please contribute $100 to
www.litvaksig.org/contribute/ designated for internal passport project
and, in the NOTES Block, key in Birzai District. You can use your credit
card as the site is secure.

Even though your family may have left Lithuania before 1914, everyone did
not leave. Siblings, Uncles, Aunts, cousins, etc, remained. Many
researchers have found relatives in the 1919-1940 files even though their
immediate family members left before then.

If you do decide to contribute, please let me know so I can send you the
records as soon as they are translated.

Warszawa Research Group #Warsaw #Poland New Genealogy Society Formed in Israel #warsaw #poland

Daniel Hanoch Wagner
 

New Genealogy Society Formed in Israel

Some of the top genealogists in Israel have formed a new genealogical society
called the Israel Genealogy Research Association (IGRA). They include:
* Esther Ramon, founding president of the Israel Genealogical Society
* Mathilde Tagger, winner of the Lifetime Achievement Award of the International
Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS), member of Founding
Committee of International Institute for Jewish Genealogy, author and lecturer
on Sephardic genealogy.
* Martha Lev-Zion, past member of the IAJGS Board of Directors, founder and
president of the Negev Genealogical Society and past president of the Latvia
SIG of JewishGen.
* Jean-Pierre Stroweis, past president of the Israel Genealogical Society,
member of the academic committee of the International Institute for Jewish
Genealogy, and co-chair of the 2004 IAJGS conference held in Jerusalem.
* Daniel Horowitz, chief genealogist of MyHeritage.com and member of the
IAJGS Board of Directors.
* H. Daniel Wagner, co-chair of the 2004 IAJGS conference held in Jerusalem,
member of Academic Committee of International Institute for Jewish Genealogy.
* Rose Lerer Cohen, professional family history researcher and co-author of
The Holocaust in Lithuania 1941-1945: A Book of Remembrance.
* Rose Feldman, past webmistress of the Israel Genealogical Society for nine
years. She has lectured at a number of IAJGS conferences, annual seminars
of the Israel Genealogical Society and their branch meetings. She will be
responsible for developing databases for the new society.

The center of the organization will be a website located at http://www.genealogy.org.il.
The website is presented in English,but the home page provides the option to display
the pages in French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Polish, Russian Spanish and Yiddish.
The site will host videos, webinars, articles on genealogy, research guides,
and the calendar of events for the society. There are already three research
guides: Latin America by Daniel Horowitz, Poland by Jean-Pierre Stroweis
and United Kingdom by Rosemary Eshel. Guides for Latvia,South Africa and
Sephardic research will be available in the near future.

Lectures are planned throughout Israel. The new society has already given four
lectures and three planned for the near future are noted on their homepage.

The website states the society is "dedicated to being completely open to all
groups within Israel and outside of Israel. We welcome everyone interested in
genealogy, no matter what country they were born in or what language they speak."
