Re: GRABER of Sanok, Galicia #galicia

Joseph Walder asked for "suggestions for archival research about my
GRABER/GRAEBER ancestors of Sanok
First, i would do a single-surname search for GREBERs in the Sanok
area...try to connect the families >from the various sources. Those
family trees will almost certainly be tied to yours eventually, and
you may find connections with living descendants with the same
genealogical interests. Once found, DNA autosomal testing is another
way to corroborate the descendant connections.

Next, try the JRI-Pl database, as they have online: Polish State Archives
Location Years Available Indexed Years Online Type Status
Archive 60 Fond 421 1890 - 1906 M
Archive 60 Fond 424 1864 1864 B
Archive 60 Fond 424 1867 1867 B
Archive 60 Fond 424 1869 - 1913 1869 - 1905 B
...although JRI=PL doesnt seem to have the later birth records.

next, Joseph, try the Sanok Archives in the Polish National Digital Archives.
For research in the Polish National Digital Archives (NDA) for Western
Galicia. I would suggest that it is easier to research these archives
directly with four tools:
...Howard Fink's NDA Guide for JRI-Poland , which can be downloaded
from http://jri-poland.org/help/NDA_Guide.pdf. It gives step by step
instructions.
...JRI-PL's galician vital record titles
translated...http://jri-poland.org/galicia/GalicianVitalRecords_Titles_Nov2002.pdf,
...Google translate for translating data within the records, and
...Chrome for translating web pages, titles, search commands.
I usually begin by going directly to the NDA at
https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/ and key in a town name and a polish word
for Jewish Records (Hebrajski or Hebrew, Israel or izraelickie, Jewish
or Juden, Mojzesz or Zydow); each record collection uses different
titles. You can use asterisks as wildcards at the end of any term.
Then i click scans only, to reduce the number of results, then i use
Chrome to translate the titles of the results.

Within the NDA i did see this item for GREBER but it was not
scanned...outline of the woodshedery of mojzesz Greber >from 1878
I did see this file of scanned documents: Book of Births of Sanok
1906-1913...these are 140 scanned pages in polish.Next is the really
hard part...slogging thru the unindexed records...but wow if you find
something!

Hi,

On certain records for an ancestor it says Gessel or Hessel (sometimes
with only one 's'). But then we encountered records that say Kushel.

Could these three options be the same name/person?

Thanks in advance

Henry Marcus the 19th C travel entrepreneur #general

Jonathan Myers <jmyers31@...>
 

I am doing research into the role of Jewish people in the development
of the railways, particularly in the mid 19th C, though not
exclusively. I have come across a man by the name of Henry Marcus, now
a little known individual but at the time well known for the
excursions he ran. He was a rival of the now well-known Thomas Cook
(who founded the travel business still in existence).

The name Marcus suggests he might have been Jewish and I would like to
determine if this is so. He was running excursions around England,
coming to major prominence in the 1850s. He was based in Liverpool.

Genealogy is not my field so I would appreciate any information about
this man concerning his Jewish identity, if it is there. Or pointing
me in the right direction to find this out.

Sincerely

Dr Jonathan Myers

This is a document relating to a Synagogue seat in Hranice relating to the

there are several names. I am particularly interested to know what is the
relationship between them. Is Sigmund related to Jakob Israel (My G5F)? how?
Are there any detailed about the people mentioned? also if possible who are

between them.

Please respond via the form provided on the ViewMate image page.

I am searching for any relatives or researchers of the family headed
by Mor (Moritz) WEISZ who married Ernesztine SPITZER in Szeged. They
and their children probably changed their names later to VERMES.
Ernesztine SPITZER was the sister of my great great grandfather, which

If anyone has some information regarding them, or contacts of their
