Dear Discussion Group Subscribers,

The messages in the Discussion Groups might be short, but the time and
effort that goes into editing, moderating, and sending them out is not.
The Discussion Group messages provide people with encouragement,
helpful hints and information to researchers worldwide. If you are
receiving this message, you are a beneficiary of the dedication of
thousands of JewishGen volunteers. And what better way to show
appreciation for those efforts than to contribute to JewishGen's
Spring Brunch - which will be honoring three worthy volunteers:
Lance Ackerfeld, Karen Franklin, and Gary Mokotoff.

The money raised through this event is vital to the functioning of
JewishGen. Please help ensure the continued role of JewishGen as a
center of Jewish genealogical research on the web.

Please visit http://www.JewishGen.org/event for more information,
or to place an tribute ad or donate today.
You can also telephone (646) 437-4326.

Sincerely,
Warren Blatt
Managing Director, JewishGen

Re: sections of Tarnow #galicia

Howard Fink <HowGen@...>
 

The eastern part of the original walled city center (Miasto) was
Jewish, as well as the sections immediately to the east (Grabowka)
and the area to the north (Zawale). The Jewish Cemetery is near
where these north and east sections intersect, but I believe it is
properly in the northeast corner of Zawale.

Strusina is a section to the west and Zablocie is to the south.

Pog is the abbreviation for Pogwizdow, an area just north-northeast
beyond Zawale.

I'm sorry, but I cannot identify the other names.

Keep in mind that the house numbers were not sequential along a
street as we are used to now. I do not know of a map that identifies
old style house numbers in Tarnow, but I would be happy to learn
of one.

Also keep in mind that the house number is usually the address
where the event occurred and that this may not be where the family
lived, although often births and deaths did occur at home.
Sometimes it is the address of a doctor or hospital. The hospital in
Tarnow was also near the intersection of Grabowka and Zawale, but
closer to the city center than the cemetery.

sections or, perhaps, actual street names. They are Grudina, Kokosra,
Pog and Vorstadt. The years these names are referenced are between
1838 and 1905.

Also, I found my most distant ancestors lived at house #1 Grabowka
(1887) and house #2 Grabowka (1878). They were all stonecutters.
Would these houses have been near the cemetery? Could anyone be
more specific as to where house #1 and house #2 would have been
located?

Meldungsbuch. As far as I know this would be an attendance book, I
guess to prove that your father attended the necessary lectures before
being allowed to graduate.

Exhibition on Jews in Greece During Holocaust #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The New York Times published an article earlier this week on an exhibition
on Jews in Greece during the holocaust which is on display at the Holocaust
Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County (NY, USA)
[ https://www.holocaust-nassau.org/index.php] . The exhibit is called:
"Portraits of Our Past: The Sephardic Communities of Greece and the
Holocaust," is on view through Aug. 15. In Greece, 87 percent of the Jewish
population perished during the holocaust representing about 67,000 people.
The exhibition, emphasizes not only Greece during the holocaust, but also
the long history of Jews in Greece and the large number of Greek Christians
who risked their lives to save some of them. The exhibit also has a central
section which focuses on the Sephardic Jews who came to Greece >from Spain
and Portugal in the 15th century and continued to speak Ladino. Another
section focuses on the Romaniote Jews, who arrived in Greece more than 2,000
years ago - the oldest Jewish community in Europe - and had different
customs >from the larger Sephardic population. Altogether, some 60
photographs and 14 artifacts are on display. To read the New York Times
article on the exhibit go to: http://tinyurl.com/nglru92

New York Genealogy Class will begin June 1 #warsaw #poland

bounce-2611665-772981@...
 

So many of our immigrant ancestors lived in New York City -- they
started on the Lower East Side and upgraded to the Bronx and Brooklyn;
their children moved to Queens, Westchester, Long Island and New Jersey.

Sure we have the census >from Ancestry and vital records from
ItalianGen but this class will focus on the more esoteric documents
our ancestors generated -- naturalization, probate, landsmanshaften,
voters registration, newspapers, court cases -- and we will note which
documents will only be found on-site at various archives.We include
suggestions on where to research, where to wander and how to get
there. Students will have the opportunity to select a branch to
research and receive suggestions >from the instructor.

This 4 week Intermediate level genealogy course has 7 text lessons you
can download; there are no specific times for the course; students
interact with the instructor though a 24/7 FORUM, in a query and
answer format. To see a short video on how our courses work, go to
www.jewishgen.org/education and view the video at the very bottom of
the page. Note: these are intermediate genealogy topics and if you
wish to pursue another U.S. city, the instructor will be happy to work
with you.

Requirements: Students must feel comfortable browsing the web and
downloading files, have 5-10 hours available each week and should
select a family where census and vital records are already documented.
Tuition is $100 (there are no waivers for this course); registration
is open; go to www.JewishGen.org/education and click on the enrollment
link. For questions, please email JewishGen-Education@lyris.JewishGen.org

Dear Genners,

As Publicity Specialist for Yizkor-Books-in-Print, part of the Yizkor
Books Project of JewishGen, I am pleased to announce that we now have
several new volumes available for you. All are in hard cover and have
a similar format and size (approximately 7" x 10"). All of our books
are available through Amazon and other distributors at discounted prices.

Our latest memorial titles include works about the following towns:
Rozniatow, Ukraine, Ostro Mazowiecka, Poland, Yampol, Ukraine, Polhajce,
Ukraine, Novogrudok, Belarus and a memoir, The Maple Tree Behind the
Barbed Wire - A Story of Survival >from the Czestochowa Ghetto.

These Yizkor books, almost all originally written in Yiddish and Hebrew
by former residents, have been beautifully translated by volunteers. We
are very grateful to all of them for their work, initiated, supervised,
and often prepared by Joel Alpert our amazing Project Coordinator.

Watch for word on the arrival of three other titles: Jaslo, Poland,
Telekhan, Belarus and Ciechanow, Poland all coming shortly.

For further information on all the books published through our project
please go to our web site:
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html
where descriptions and cover photos are available.
