Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Internal Passports added to database #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

4,038 internal passport records, 1919-1940, have been added to the
the Litvak SIG All Lithuania Database (ALD) and the JewishGen Lithuania
database. Both databases can be searched by name or by town name. The
names of large towns, like Vilnius and Kaunas, will not bring any
results so search small towns and villages only.

The added records are for internal passports that were applied for in
Vilnius, Klaipeda, and the Siauliai District. However, many more towns are
included as the place of birth is included. In most cases, additional
documents are included in the individual files and copies can be obtained
from the archive.
If your family left Lithuania prior to 1919, do not make the mistake of
thinking these records would be of no value to you. Your immediate family
may have left but others remained - siblings, uncles, aunts, cousins, etc.

To learn about the internal passports, see examples of various documents
in the individual files, and to see an index of translated records for
various towns, go to
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Lithuania/InternalPassports.htm

On that site, you can see the instructions on contacting the archives if
you would like to obtain copies of documents and also how you can support
the project.

The major need at the present time are contributions to support the
translation of the Vilnius internal passports. For a $100 contribution to
Litvak SIG, you will receive all of the Vilnius internal passport records
that are translated. Go to www.litvaksig.org/contribute Scroll down to
Special Projects, choose internal passports, and in the NOTES block key
in Vilnius.

JRI Poland #Poland Translation help #poland

Chloe2000@...
 

Hi. I am looking for some assistance with a translation of two
documents that I have posted on viewmate. The first is the birth record
of Dwora Weklser in Klobuck, Poland, 1819 Viewmate item VM27036. I am
hoping to get as close to a direct translation as possible of that part
of the document that pertains to Dwora Weksler and am particularly
interest in dates, names, occupations, etc.
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM27036

The second is the death record of Brandla Weksler in Klobick, Poland in
1829 at Viewmate item # VM27037. I am interested in as close to a
direct translation as possible of that part of the document that
pertains to Brandla Weksler and for a generally understanding of the
entire document.

Re: Need a new search direction: FISHMAN Family of Bobruisk #belarus

Marilyn Robinson
 

In the last few days someone posted the name FISHMAN and said he/she was
having difficulty finding records. I can't remember which SIG the post was
on since I belong to several. But, in the RGIA (Russian State Historical
Archives, F. 1284, Op. 224, sheet 237-239) archives there was a FISHERMAN
Abram Leibovich >from Druya (a tradesman/merchant).

The name Fisherman translated >from RYBAK. Perhaps Fishman/Fisherman are
from the same root, and maybe records can be found for the "Fishman" family
under the name "Rybak" and its alternative spellings.

JRI Poland #Poland Gesher Galicia Launches New Website! #poland

Pamela Weisberger
 

Gesher Galicia is very proud to announce the launch of our new website at:

http://www.GesherGalicia.org/

The site has been restructured and redesigned >from the ground up,
including the addition of a new membership portal. Here you'll find a
pathway to all things Galician (including many resources for Polish
and Ukrainian researchers) with an easy and intuitive interface.
Sections of the website have been reorganized for ease of use,
including our "Research Projects" section -- with a full explanation
of our new "Galician Archival Records Project" -- a listing of all
Gesher Galicia regional programs and IAJGS conference programs from
the past decade, and updated informational pages about historical
Galicia. Two of our major sub-sites, the Map Room
(maps.geshergalicia.org) and the All Galicia Database (AGD -
search.geshergalicia.org) remain full of information, and they will be
undergoing some renovations in the near future to make their look
realign with the new main site layout.

We've just added nine new databases to the AGD including the Bobrka
Homeowners List (1845); the Chodorow Homeowners List (1883); the
Rozdol Homeowners List (1850); the Rohatyn area donations to Kollel
Galicia in Jerusalem (1925-1939); Stary Sambor Jewish Deaths
(1896-1907); Stary Sambor Jewish Marriages (1877-1907); Zloczow Jewish
Births (1825-1855; 1894); and Zloczow Jewish Deaths (1825-1855).

The ninth new database is the Brody Jewish Cemetery (19th and 20th
centuries), whose contents were completely photographed and
transcribed. This database represents the first cemetery information,
the first photographs to be directly linked to our records, and the
first Hebrew text to be displayed in our search engine.

There are also updates to existing databases: we just uploaded a huge
number of Jewish birth, marriage, and death records >from Lviv, adding
over 16,000 new records to these datasets. Even more Lviv record
updates will be added throughout 2013.

Other highlights of the new site include:

* Town pages: *

"Galician Town" pages have been created for over 420 towns and cities
that were formerly in Galicia. Get an easy overview of current and
past geographic information about your town of interest, including
former Administrative, Judicial, and Jewish Kehilla district
information; Google Maps of the town; modern photos of the town
automatically pulled in >from the photo service Flickr; videos about
the town automatically pulled in >from YouTube; and more.

Links are automatically generated to the relevant town pages on
JewishGen, JRI-Poland, Miriam Weiner's Routes to Roots database, the
New York Public Library's Yizkor Book database, and other genealogy
websites to make the page a one-stop shop for anyone researching that
town. Links to town Wikipedia pages and KehillaLink websites are
coming soon. Any relevant archival items we know about in the Gesher
Galicia inventory, such as landowner records or town cadastral maps,
are also pulled into the page, so you can see what surviving records
are currently known to exist in our inventory database.

Logged in members of Gesher Galicia will also see a list of all other
Gesher Galicia members who are researching the town, their surnames of
interest, and their contact information, including an easy way to
e-mail everyone at once without having to do a lot of cutting and
pasting. More Galician towns will be added in the near future.

*Family pages: *

We've also created almost 2,800 new Galician Family pages, based on
the surnames our members have indicated that they are researching.
These pages are similar to the Town pages in that they are a one-stop
compendium of links and information about the family name.
Abbreviated search results >from the All Galicia Database (AGD) are
displayed for each surname, with links to the full results.

*Inventory*

Our inventory pages have also been refreshed, to make it easier to
keep track of what records are known to exist for which towns, and
whether or not they've been acquired or transcribed yet. Our main
inventory page now has almost 1700 cadastral maps, landowner, voter,
tax, and school records, as well as Polish magnate documents, from
archives in Ukraine, Poland, and Austria. More additions to the
inventory >from the past few months of research are coming soon. We
also have an inventory of the LDS films of the Jewish vital records
from the Central State Historical Archives of Ukraine in Lviv, created
in cooperation with JRI-Poland. We have also posted a new inventory
of Tabula registers held in the State Historical Archives in Lviv
(TsDIal), created by Alexander Dunai, originally published in "The
Galitzianer."

*The Galitzianer:*

We've put online for the first time 93 articles (so far) >from twenty
years of back issues of our quarterly newsletter "The Galitzianer".
These articles are online in text format, often with their original
images and photos too, and the full text is fully searchable with our
search box. However, most of these articles are only fully available
to logged in Gesher Galicia members after the first two or three
paragraphs. Articles have all been tagged by category or categories
-- fourteen of them, >from Book Reviews to Military Research to Tips
and HowTo's -- and also by volume and issue number. Also available to
logged in Gesher Galicia members are the downloadable full original
PDF files of each issue. Tables of contents for each issue remain
freely available to everyone.

The new website has -- literally -- been years in the making....and a
huge thanks goes to GG vice-president, Brooke Schreier Ganz, for her
design, coding and creation of the site. Gary Liston created our new
logo. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to our former GG webmaster, the
musical Max Heffler, who is probably thrilled now to have more time
now to devote to his genealogical pursuits. Also a special shout out
to Jay Osborn for keeping the Map Room growing and gorgeous. Special
thanks to Yoav Sharon in Israel for being the moving force behind the
Zloczow databases just added to the AGD.

If you spot any bugs in the system, please feel free to email Brooke
at: webmaster@.... Constructive criticism is always
appreciated. Thanks for your support of Gesher Galicia over all these
years. The best is yet to come!

JRI Poland #Poland Ostroleka vs Kamenetz Litvosk #poland

Hi All,

My great-grandfather, Morris Cohen, is buried in the Ostrolenka section
of Mt. Zion Cemetery (NY). Naturalization papers that I have for
Harris/Morris Cohen have the individual listed as coming >from Kamenetz
Lit (possibly Litvosk).

Was it common to bury people in plots owned by a particular burial
society, if that person was >from elsewhere? His wife and her first
husband are both buried in the Ostrolenka section, as well. The first
husband died many years earlier.

Also, is Kamenetz Litvosk far >from Ostrolenka--I was unable to find the
distance.

Thank you,
