Zombor, Senta, Novi Sad #hungary

pgbakos@...
 

Hi,

There is (or was) a very active Jewish Community in Novi Sad. They were helpful. They spoke English. The Synagogue is quite nice, and I understand, has had some work done. The Jewish Cemetery is in a part of the main cemetery. I found the graves of some of my family there but they were horribly overgrown so the stones were illegible. The wife of the attendant and her little son helped me to clear away the overgrowth. This is the problem of all Jewish cemeteries in communities with few Jews left in them; there is nobody to care for stuff and not enough to support them financially.

I paid a researcher to find something for me in the Novi Sad Archives a few years ago when I could not return there myself. He was good, and he was reasonable, and as much as I hate to pay for something I can do myself, I cannot just drop everything and go running off to Novi Sad, or Kamchatka for that matter. I think he was recommended by Beth Long. I will try to find the name, if you are interested, and I will send it privately.

The Archives in Zombor were in the city hall. Somebody helped me and I recall no language problem. Younger Serbians tend to be multilingual. Voivodina is a friendly place, but then my father was born there, his father was a teacher in Bela Crkva. (Fehertemplom/Weisskirchen)

Serbia has a lot of archival stuff; they don't know all that they have. One supposes that every year they uncover some more.

Senta and Ilok #hungary

Moishe Miller
 

Hello,

Senta was not a large town. WOWW gives the population at 1457. I too had
family there.

My great-grandmother, Raizel Stern (married to Moshe Weinstock of
Tokaj, Hungary in 1892) was born August 10, 1873 in Ilok, Croatia to
Tzvi Stern (1845 - 1933) and Rochel Steiner (18? - 1907).

Raizel and Moshe Weinstock lived in Senta, Serbia for a time, but then
moved to Paks, Hungary. They had 17 children, 13 of whom lived to
adulthood. The older children were all born in Senta. My grandmother was
#9, born 1907 when they were already living in Paks.

Does anyone know of these families?

Dear Abraham and Peter:

About ten years ago, I made a trip to Europe researching my ancestors.
My
great grandmother Ernestine Steinfeld had family in Senta, and my
grandfather Herman Schacherl and all his siblings were born there.

I visited Senta and searched the municipal records as well as the
archives
in Belgrade and Szeged. In all three places there were records of births
and deaths in Senta, but none included my relatives.

Senta's records consisted of a shoebox of hand-written notes. I was told
there that the Germans confiscated many Jewish civil records during the
war.

Some of the more formal paper records I found in the Szeged archives had
been damaged and were now declared missing including the years I was
searching for. Here's the online link to the Szeged archives, but I'm
not
sure anyone there
speaks English: csml@csml.hu. In person, they were very friendly, but I
could only communicate with one of the staff and her English was very
limited. Of course this may have changed.

The Belgrade archives were all electronic. After my return, I hired a
Serbian speaking researcher to check out the Novi Sad records, but
again,
nothing was found. Of course, that doesn't mean your family's records
aren't
there. I'm afraid I also
don't know if what these archives have is any different >from the LDS
records.

Peter, do you have a contact for the Zombor archives, and if so, do you
know
if they are able to communicate in English and are willing to help with
research?

I can certainly recommend a visit to Senta. A lovely town with friendly,
helpful residents.

Best regards,

Elena Schacherl,

Weirdly enough I have been in Zombor/Sombor (the one in Serbia, not
Slovakia) where I used the archives (they were very friendly) and
discovered
they also had information about Zenta, which is where some of my
Podwinec
family lived. This is not logical, as one would expect that records
would
be in Subotica, which is the local center or government, or in Novi Sad
which is the regional capital for the Vojvodina.

Novi Sad has a huge archive which is underfunded, so they don't know the
full extent of their holdings. But that too is worth a visit in the
chance
that they hold records as well.

It would be delightful to discover that they have, hidden away, 1857 or
1867
Census sheets.

Don't know about LDS records, but Zombor is worth the visit.
Picturesque,
lovely old town, not too horribly renovated or restored, or at least as
of
2005 or so. Easy border crossing >from Baja in Hungary, if it hasn't been
closed by certain politicians.

Holocaust documentary, Talsi book question #latvia

bgephart@...
 

I just finished watching a documentary forwarded to me by a cousin in Israel
about the Holocaust in Latvia. It's quite good and I'd like to recommend it
here - https://youtu.be/KBANKlgBaoE
One of the people interviewed has apparently written a book in Latvian about
the Jews of Talsi. It's called "Talsi Jews" (or "Talsu ebreji"), by Antra
Grube. Has anyone seen this book? I looked online to try to find it and
it's only listed in two academic libraries on WorldCat, and I think
available for purchase via a Latvian website, but I'm not confident in the
translation of the website. Of course, it's in Latvian, so would need to be
translated for the rest of us. Just curious if anyone had heard of it or
seen it.

Hi everybody,

Jewish Community of Moldova and town of Cahul need our help. They are building a Monument for
Victims of Cahul Ghetto.

Please donate $10, $20, $50!
Go to https://www.tkfgen.org/cahul.html

You can see at that site the monument which is going to be built.

How we can sit idle and not helping Jews around the world, and especially in the region we have
our ancestors from.

I understand that most of you do not know even where small town of Cahul is. That may change... do
you know that if you go to www.google.com and write for example Cahul Jewish, you will get large
number of articles, history sites, also our Bessarabia SIG work on the Cahul cemetery, and more.
Please explore internet and find where is Cahul on the Google map.

Cahul is located near the border with Romania and in about 100 miles >from Kishinev, and only 45 miles
to large Romanian town of Galatz.

Please donate today!
On May 1 we are going to close this effort and send collected money.

Rosensweig Family #ukraine

mar13no40@...
 

I'm searching information about ROSENSWEIG.

Frank (Ephraim)  ROSENSWEIG was born about 1864 in Mariupol, Ukraine,
Russia .
He was married with Ana Clara Marmer and the family (six children born
at Mariupol ) moved to Odessa and arrived at USA in 1905. .
His parents were Itzac Schmuel  Rosensweig (born about 1834 Marupal,
Ukraine) and Rose Rosensweig (born about 1844).

Charna and Rivka (Rebeca ) Rosensweig were cousins or perhaps one
or both were sisters of Frank,  they remained in Ucrania.

Charna was married with Srul Jaim KOTIK and Rivka with Aaron PASTEL.

Any help with my research would be much appreciated.

Gesher Galicia’s Research Projects #austria-czech

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

Gesher Galicia has an ambitious research program for 2018 comprising
seven projects. [For their list, see: <https://tinyurl.com/y7daagtz>.]
We continue actively on our ongoing Vital Records project and
Josephine & Franciscan Cadastral Surveys (J&F) project. In 2017,
Gesher Galicia indexed over 45,000 Jewish vital records and a very
similar number of J&F records.

I want to let readers know of four further projects - apart >from our
regular and long-running Maps Project - that we are pursuing.

1. The Holocaust Project
- Coordinator: Michal Majewski.
Holocaust-period records >from Galician towns available in state and
other archives in Poland and Ukraine tend to be either vital records,
or else Jewish community records or municipal records that shed light
on life in the occupied towns.

In the project for 2018, we are transcribing a number of books of
vital records, or index books of vital records, >from six western
Galician towns. Other than that, we are focusing on =E2=80=9Clife in the
occupied towns=E2=80=9D in (mainly) western Galicia. These records include
lists of Jewish town or ghetto residents, registration cards, detailed
records >from two towns of forced labor, recipients of food ration
coupons, and other special or unusual records >from the Holocaust
period. For more information, see: <https://tinyurl.com/ybv648te>.

2. The Galician Medical Students/Doctors Project
- Coordinator: Andrew Zalewski.
from an early period, Jewish medical practitioners moved across
societal and geographical borders. In this genealogical project, a
database of Galician medical students and graduates (1784=E2=80=931918) is
being created, including information about parents, occupations, and
home towns. This will be supplemented with annotations from
non-academic records (relating, for instance, to the town and type of
medical practice, and military service).

The first stage of the project is concentrating on the universities in
Krakow (Jagiellonian) and Lemberg/Lwow, as well as Pest and Prague
universities outside Galicia, and the Galician Jews who attended them.
These university records will provide data on some 2,000-3,000 Jews
from Galicia. The first sets of indexes (for the period 1802-1918)
from the Jagiellonian University have very recently been added to our
database. After the 2018 stage is complete, the database will be
extended to the universities in Vienna and elsewhere in the Habsburg
realm. For more information, see: <https://tinyurl.com/y8jn62dw>.

3. The Fond 424 Project
- Coordinator: Laura Zaki.
Fond 424 is a collection of almost 200 files of Jewish materials held
at AGAD in Warsaw, most of them >from eastern Galicia. It contains
vital records (like the much larger Fond 300), but in loose,
certificate form, as well as sets of non-vital records of the Jewish
community, such as financial accounts.

In this project for 2018, Gesher Galicia is scanning some two thirds
of the files in Fond 424, including all those considered useful for
genealogical research. None of the files in Fond 424 have previously
been microfilmed or digitized. We will also upload to the All Galicia
Database all the files already indexed in this fond (some of them
recently updated), as well as some 20 further files that will be
indexed. For more information, see: <https://tinyurl.com/ydcv6bvv>.

4. Jewish Taxpayers records
- Coordinator: Mark Jacobson.
We have lists of Jewish taxpayers >from the 1930s, >from eight towns in
the Stanislawow region, including Kolomyja, Solotwina, Tlumacz, and
Zablotow. These are currently being worked on and some will be ready
for upload to our database very soon.

There are also Jewish taxpayer records, >from the same period, >from a
larger number of towns in the Tarnopol region, and the aim is to index
these later in the year. The Tarnopol-region towns include: Borszczow,
Brzezany, Grzymalow, Mielnica, Mikulince, Skala, Tarnopol, Tluste,
Trembowla, Zbaraz, and Zloczow. For more information, see:
<https://tinyurl.com/ycxwhcr3>.


We would welcome the support of interested researchers to ensure that
these projects will be successfully completed.

For any questions on our projects, or for further information, please
contact: <info@geshergalicia.org>.

from Galicia and those >from Russian Poland.
Later this year, the indexes >from Pest University (Budapest) and
Lemberg/Lwow University, with the names of Jewish students from
Galicia, will be added to the All Galicia Database. Indexes >from other
Habsburg universities attended by the Galician Jews will follow.

Austria-Czech SIG #Austria-Czech Gesher Galicia’s Research Projects #austria-czech

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

Gesher Galicia has an ambitious research program for 2018 comprising
seven projects. [For their list, see: <https://tinyurl.com/y7daagtz>.]
We continue actively on our ongoing Vital Records project and
Josephine & Franciscan Cadastral Surveys (J&F) project. In 2017,
Gesher Galicia indexed over 45,000 Jewish vital records and a very
similar number of J&F records.

I want to let readers know of four further projects - apart >from our
regular and long-running Maps Project - that we are pursuing.

1. The Holocaust Project
- Coordinator: Michal Majewski.
Holocaust-period records >from Galician towns available in state and
other archives in Poland and Ukraine tend to be either vital records,
or else Jewish community records or municipal records that shed light
on life in the occupied towns.

In the project for 2018, we are transcribing a number of books of
vital records, or index books of vital records, >from six western
Galician towns. Other than that, we are focusing on =E2=80=9Clife in the
occupied towns=E2=80=9D in (mainly) western Galicia. These records include
lists of Jewish town or ghetto residents, registration cards, detailed
records >from two towns of forced labor, recipients of food ration
coupons, and other special or unusual records >from the Holocaust
period. For more information, see: <https://tinyurl.com/ybv648te>.

2. The Galician Medical Students/Doctors Project
- Coordinator: Andrew Zalewski.
from an early period, Jewish medical practitioners moved across
societal and geographical borders. In this genealogical project, a
database of Galician medical students and graduates (1784=E2=80=931918) is
being created, including information about parents, occupations, and
home towns. This will be supplemented with annotations from
non-academic records (relating, for instance, to the town and type of
medical practice, and military service).

The first stage of the project is concentrating on the universities in
Krakow (Jagiellonian) and Lemberg/Lwow, as well as Pest and Prague
universities outside Galicia, and the Galician Jews who attended them.
These university records will provide data on some 2,000-3,000 Jews
from Galicia. The first sets of indexes (for the period 1802-1918)
from the Jagiellonian University have very recently been added to our
database. After the 2018 stage is complete, the database will be
extended to the universities in Vienna and elsewhere in the Habsburg
realm. For more information, see: <https://tinyurl.com/y8jn62dw>.

3. The Fond 424 Project
- Coordinator: Laura Zaki.
Fond 424 is a collection of almost 200 files of Jewish materials held
at AGAD in Warsaw, most of them >from eastern Galicia. It contains
vital records (like the much larger Fond 300), but in loose,
certificate form, as well as sets of non-vital records of the Jewish
community, such as financial accounts.

In this project for 2018, Gesher Galicia is scanning some two thirds
of the files in Fond 424, including all those considered useful for
genealogical research. None of the files in Fond 424 have previously
been microfilmed or digitized. We will also upload to the All Galicia
Database all the files already indexed in this fond (some of them
recently updated), as well as some 20 further files that will be
indexed. For more information, see: <https://tinyurl.com/ydcv6bvv>.

4. Jewish Taxpayers records
- Coordinator: Mark Jacobson.
We have lists of Jewish taxpayers >from the 1930s, >from eight towns in
the Stanislawow region, including Kolomyja, Solotwina, Tlumacz, and
Zablotow. These are currently being worked on and some will be ready
for upload to our database very soon.

There are also Jewish taxpayer records, >from the same period, >from a
larger number of towns in the Tarnopol region, and the aim is to index
these later in the year. The Tarnopol-region towns include: Borszczow,
Brzezany, Grzymalow, Mielnica, Mikulince, Skala, Tarnopol, Tluste,
Trembowla, Zbaraz, and Zloczow. For more information, see:
<https://tinyurl.com/ycxwhcr3>.


We would welcome the support of interested researchers to ensure that
these projects will be successfully completed.

This communication refers to the Medical Students/Doctors Project. To
learn about this initiative, please follow the link:
https://www.geshergalicia.org/projects/galician-medical-students-doctors-project/.

The following indexes have been added to the searchable database (AGD):

-- Jagiellonian University: Jewish medical students and graduates (1802-1850)
-- Jagiellonian University: Jewish medical students and graduates (1851-1918)
-- Jagiellonian University: Jewish midwifery students (1802-1850)

Members of Gesher Galicia can also view supplemental information from
the university records and other sources (e.g., regarding parental
information, studies, places and the type of clinical practice, etc.).
Supplemental data are accessible via the Members Portal after login:
https://www.geshergalicia.org/login/ and can be found in the Members'
Records archive. Of note, Jagiellonian indexes include Jewish students
from Galicia and those >from Russian Poland.
