Re: Is Additional Information Found in Archives That's Not Found in Tarnow PSA Records? #galicia

Dear Linda:

Although I am not familiar with the Tarnow records, I am familiar with
Galician vital records >from many other towns.

First you need to split these records into two categories -- those before
1877 and those starting in 1877. Before 1877, there were no government
regulations that standardized what was to be captured on Jewish vital
records. In 1877 and thereafter, the fields required in vital records were
standardized. JRI-Poland provides some examples of the column headings at
http://www.jri-poland.org/galicia/GalicianVitalRecords_Titles_Nov2002.pdf

Before 1877, there was no consistency, but we know there was less
information than in later records. For births, most records included the
father's full name and the mother's given name. Sometimes records also
included the given name of the father's father and/or mother's father. For
marriages, the parents of the bride and groom are usually shown although not
the mother's maiden name. For death's, only for children was a parent's name
usually recorded.

Starting in 1877, birth records included the names of the mother's parents,
but not the father's parents. Marriages recorded the parents of both the
bride and groom, including the maiden name of the mother. And deaths again
did not record parent's names except for the death of children.

Since there was no consistency in recording of names, obtaining examples
from other researchers for the type of record and the year of your interest
is the best way to find out exactly what was recorded. All the examples I
provide are the usual content based on my years of experience with Galician
records as an Archive Coordinator for JRI-Poland.

Most of these specific records found in JRI Poland do not list the
names of parents (I am looking specifically for HANDGRIFF). Does that
mean that the parent's names are not included with the original
records as well, or does it mean that I would need to send to the
Archive to get that information? I am asking because in a few cases
the parent's names are mentioned.

Re: Is Additional Information Found in Archives That's Not Found in Tarnow PSA Records? #galicia

Howard Fink <HowGen@...>
 

The data we have for Tarnow is >from three main sources:

1) LDS microfilms of vital records, approx 1808 - 1860, transcribed by
our volunteer group,
2) PSA indices of vital records, mostly 1870's - 1905,
3) PSA indices of School records, various years.

The specific record set you are referencing is the second group. For
this set the parents' names are usually available in the actual records.
The indices for these records were created by the Polish State Archives
(PSA) for JRI-Poland using the contributions we received >from many
donations:

http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/psa/status.htm#Tarnow

Since we did not have direct access to the actual records I cannot say
that all records have this additional information, but I can tell you
that the PSA did not enter any of this extra information in the indices
they generated for us for any of the years prior to 1900, but they did
enter it >from that year forward. This was the case for Births, Deaths &
Marriages. For those years, out of almost 2200 Births there are only 3
without the mother's name. Records that I have personally ordered always
contained parents' information. These records are all in tabular form -
there are no long paragraph style entries, so it is not difficult to
read them.

We would, of course, like to add the extra information to the indices of
the years before 1900. When the mother's maiden name is present it
results in more connections being found in your search results for a
specific surname. Future contributions may allow us to add this
information.

Re: Rabbi Joel HALPERN (1887-?1954) #rabbinic

It appears the inquiry was regarding R. Joel Halpern who was the son of
R. Abraham Zorach Judah Ari Halpern and is mentioned in The Unbroken
Chain. He was an uncle of both of the R. Joel Halperns mentioned in Joe
Slater's post. As I replied directly to Steven Bloom, one of his
granddaughters or great-granddaughters apparently once had a post on

Research Group (DRG) web sites.

If you are interested in a particular list, but are not a member

Hello,

I have found 2 entries for members of my family under the above database. I
have tried to find out by actively searching the Latvia SIG FAQs and other
links what information ordering these records would give me, over and above
the information already shown on the database. Could someone point me to
the right area of the SIG website, or respond to me privately if anyone knows
what getting copies of these records might show? Thank you.

Hello,

I have found 2 entries for members of my family under the above database. I
have tried to find out by actively searching the Latvia SIG FAQs and other
links what information ordering these records would give me, over and above
the information already shown on the database. Could someone point me to
the right area of the SIG website, or respond to me privately if anyone knows
what getting copies of these records might show? Thank you.

THE DISNA DISTRICT RESEARCH GROUP #lithuania

Josie Barnett
 

The Disna District Research Group of LitvakSig is a very small research
group. Through the gallant past support of our members we have made a
significant contribution to the translation of records >from the area.

We have had a period of inactivity due to lack of funds, but our
financial position is improving and it is now possible to start
thinking about continuing the translation of the 1834 Revision List.

Germanovichi, Golubicy and Glubokoye have been completed so far.
Disna, Druya, Leonpol, Luzhek, Plisa, Postavy, and Sharkovschinna
are waiting for translation.

To join us or learn more go to our direct link on the Litvaksig website

List of Jews in Lithuanian Brigade #lithuania

Does anyone know if there is a list of the Jews who fought in the
Lithuanian Brigade of the Red Army in World War II?

If such a list exists does it also show the home town of the soldier?
