Hello All,

I’ve again reposted this postcard written in Polish, still hoping for as
complete a translation as possible:


http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=28380


The photograph on the other side (which I haven’t yet posted) is of
Roza/Ruchla (born Seligman) Frenkel with her husband Joseph Frankel and
their cousin, my great-aunt Helena (born Grinbaum) Szczecinska/Van Felix.


I am also looking for any other information anyone might have about
these people and/or their descendents. So, in case the names sound
familiar to anybody, I offer a few more family facts: Roza’s mother was
Felicia Fajga (born Fuks) Seligman. Felicia was a sister of my
great-grandmother Balbina/Blime (born Fuks) Grinbaum. Balbina was the
mother of Helena in the photo, of my grandmother Mary/Malka (born
Grinbaum) Van Felix, and several other siblings.

I thank you all in advance for any and all help offered,

Sincerely,

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Re:House Numbers on Lviv Records #ukraine

Igor Holyboroda
 

Dear Ellen!
Lviv as a city has generally servived during the 20th c. with its
houses and streets. Our streets have been renamed for several times
due to the political reasons, but the structure of the streets has
generally survived (standardly we have old street with new name). Now we
have mainly old buildings on the old streets with new names. So, if
the street remained the same and only changed the name, thus the house
numbers should be the same (unless the street has not only changed the
name, but it's length has been changed- two streets were united into
one, old street was separated into two, etc.). So, I think, You should
compare two maps - old and new, and the corresponding streets, if the
street with new name completely corresponds to the street with old
name, as a rule, the house numbers should be the same.

JRI Poland #Poland All Galicia Database: New Records! Brzezany, Grzymalow, Nadworna, Podwoloczyska, Skalat, Zbaraz #poland

Pamela Weisberger
 

On 4 August 2013 Gesher Galicia added eight brand new databases to the
All Galicia Database (AGD), a free search engine for Galician (today
Poland/Ukraine) vital records, school, tax and property records. The
new databases are:

Brzezany Jewish Births (1846-1864);
Brzezany Jewish Marriages (1825-1874)
Grzymalow School Records (1926)
Nadworna Jewish Deaths (1902-1911)
Podwoloczyska Jewish Birth Records (1901-1910);
Podwoloczyska Jewish Marriage Records (1883-1911);
Skalat Jewish Death Records (1934-1940)
Zbaraz Jewish Marriage Records (1904-1910)

We also uploaded several major updates to existing databases including:

Nadworna Jewish Birth Records (1850-1865 and 1903-1908)
Zbaraz Jewish Birth Records (1815-1876; 1897; 1899; 1906-1912)

You can search it at: http://search.geshergalicia.org or >from our
home page: http://www.geshergalicia.org

One of the more interesting data sets are the "Grzymalow School
Records." This list of children by town was created by the "Polish
Ministry of Religious Denominations and Public Education" for Skalat
County and functions as a "census" taken on June 15 - 19, 1926 of
chidren born in the years 1913-1925 who were attending school, or
would be eligible for, school enrollment. Information includes the
child's name, date of birth, address, native language (Polish,
Ruthenian, Byelorussian, German, Russian Lithuanian, Czech, "Jewish or
Hebrew"), religion, and parent/guardian. We are working to obtain
more of these children's lists >from this region. This is just another
example of an unusual record that provides useful genealogical
information to fill in gaps in vital records. Grzymalow is one of the
towns for which few vital records survive.

Thanks go to the All Galicia Database webmaster, Brooke Schreier Ganz,
who uploads the records and keeps the search engine running, to Yoav
Sharon in Israel who coordinated the indexing of the Brzezany metrical
records with his corps of hard-working volunteer indexers and to John
Diener in Ottawa who indexed Grzymalow records.

The AGD search engine currently features 243,166 records >from 87
different data sources, covers everything >from birth, death, marriage
and divorce records to phone-books, school and landowner records from
Galicia, a province of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, most of which are
available nowhere else. If you haven't searched the database
recently, you can access it at: http://search.geshergalicia.org.

Also note that our database contains community records where anyone
doing Polish or Ukrainian research for non-Jewish residents may also
find records. If you have records that you think would be appropriate
for us to index and include in the AGD please contact me privately.

If you make new discoveries using our databases, please let us know.
We love to hear your success stories!

JRI Poland #Poland House Numbers on Lviv Records #poland

Pamela Weisberger
 

Ellen Korpi writes:

"Is there any way to correlate the Lviv house numbers >from the 1800s
with actual locations to see which houses were in the same
neighborhood?"

The answer is yes, but the research involves a variety of sources,
including taking into account the dates of records.

You can do a surname or house number search with the online directory
for Lwow, published in 1871/2 that shows the correspondence between
the old house numbers and the new street addresses. (This revision
took place in 1871 with many old street names updated.)

It's important to note that street names were revised again during
WWII and it is also possible that house/street renumbering might have
taken place if you want to match a current map. Nevertheless, by
finding the street name and approximate location that corresponds to
an older map, you can study the current map to determine the location.

A very thorough analysis of how to research house numbers and street
addresses in Lwow/Lvov/Lemberg/Lviv is provided by Logan Kleinwaks
here:

http://genealogyindexer.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=118

You can look up names and addresses in the 1871/72 Lwow Directory
here: http://genealogyindexer.org/frame/d49/272/d

Or go to the home page of GenealogyIndexer here:
http://www.genealogyindexer.org and search for "Lwow 1871." You
need a specific plug-in to view the directories, details are explained
on the site.

The directory is organized by residents on each street and provides
the "Dawny numer" -- the old house number -- which should be what
appears on metrical records and would correspond to a pre-1871
cadastral map. The directory links the new street name and number to
this old house number. (Note that families in Lwow also had an
"ordinal" or family number assigned to them as part of the Lwow Book
of Residents or Evidence Book (available on LDS Microfilm and in the
archives) and that this number is different >from the house number
indicating their place of residence. The Lviv vital records indexed on
the All Galicia Database, which are in Lviv, will have both of these
numbers listed. The JRI Poland records >from AGAD, do not provide
house or ordinal numbers in the indices, but if you view the online
images or the records or order copies, you should find them.

This directory is quite useful in identifying the location based on
old house numbers found in documents. Keep in mind that the fractions
you also see are not apartment numbers, but refer to the districts in
Lwow at that time: 1/4, 4/4, etc. , which refer to: Srodmiescie,
Halickie, Krakowskie, Zolkiewskie, Lyczakowskie. Today, however,
Lviv today is divided into different districts.

Here is one example >from the 1871 directory:

At #5 Ul. Ormianska (which is the street's new name, the old name was
Ul. Uniwersytecka) we find Bach, Abraham Leib. The old house number
listed was #115. So now you've matched the house number to the old
street name and the new street name.

The Gesher Galicia Map Room has several Lviv street maps, but no
cadastral maps showing house numbers yet:
http://maps.geshergalicia.org.

On the Gesher Galicia website, as part of the Lviv House & Street
Photography Project, we have photographed many of these addresses.
Here is the link to this web page where you can read about the project
and scroll down for an alphabetical listings of streets we have
photographed:

http://www.geshergalicia.org/projects/the-lviv-house-and-street-photography-project/

See the Center for Urban History's website for a selection of maps.
Here is the page for Lviv maps:
http://www.lvivcenter.org/en/umd/location/lviv/

This map pertains to your specific question. It is called: "Plan of
the Royal and Capital City of Lwow with Data on New Names of Streets
and Squares."

http://www.lvivcenter.org/en/umd/map/?ci_mapid=126

The Center for Urban History also has details on certain streets in
the Jewish district of Krakowskie, with explanations like the
following which show you the many layers of the city you need to
examine to link old house numbers with various street addresses
throughout the years:

Sianska Street lies in the Halytskyi rayon (district) of the city,
between Khmelnytskoho Street and Lazneva Street. Up to 1871 the street
was known as Synagogi Street, later as Boznicza Street, and, in
1942-1944, as Trodlergasse. Boznicza Street was the main street of the
Jewish district in the Krakowskie przedmiescie (Krakivske peredmistia,
Cracow outer district). >from 1945 the street was known under the name
of Sianska, >from the name of the river Sian (San in Polish). The
original stone pavement of the street is partly preserved, and was
re-laid in 2008.

Here is a link to the page where this information appears:
http://www.lvivcenter.org/en/lia/description/?ci_objectid=231

To make sense of all of this it is helpful to list all the information
about a person or family in an Excel chart, by year and record, to
compare. Some work is involved, but there are enough directories,
maps, documents and resources to determine the exact location (then
and now) for people and residences in Lviv. You can then pinpoint
each house you are researching on a single map to see which family
members lived near each other.
