Neumann in Lipnitz, Bohemia #austria-czech

w.e.eckstein@...
 

I'm trying to trace two Neumann children, born in Lipnitz in Bohemia, and
have no idea where it is and where to look at badatelna.
Gabriel NEUMANN and Marie EHRLICH had a son Moritz, born 6 May 1861 in
Lipnitz (and died 16 Aug 1913 in Vienna). His birth certificate was issued
in Pravonin (following his Vienna marriage record).
Gabriel NEUMANN and Marie EHRLICH had a daughter Sofie, born 2 Nov 1865 in
Lipnitz (and died 17 July 1939 in Vienna marr. Gruenhut).

First I checked the Lipnitz / Lipnice nad Sazavou records - no NEUMANN at
all.
Pravonin also don't have them.

An old geographical index has four Lipnitz in Bohemia:
1 in the region of Deutschbrod - this is Lipnice nad Sazavou
2 in the Blowitz region, Pilsen
3 in the Koeniginhof/Elbe region (Dvur Kralove)
4 in the Wittingau (Trebon) region

BTW, 1 has the birth record of Albert/Adalbert/Abraham GGRUENHUT who married
Sofie NEUMANN in Vienna.

Any idea?

New Holocaust-period records on the All Galicia Database #austria-czech

tkahane@...
 

Gesher Galicia is pleased to announce the addition to the All Galicia
Database of two important sets of Holocaust records. This database is
free and available to all, at: http://search.geshergalicia.org


1. Debica-area Holocaust-period death testimonies. Rzeszow State
Archive, Fond 881, Sygn. 1 (791 records)
These are testimonies, provided by people who survived, of Jews who
died during the Holocaust - all but a handful of them murdered. They
were gathered after the end of the war in Europe. The records are in a
single file, divided into =E2=80=9Cvolumes=E2=80=9D with town names, which =
appear to
refer to the places where the testimonies were gathered. The people
named in the records, though, came >from a wide range of localities in
the Debica area. Each testimony is signed by two witnesses.

In indexing these records, we have extracted the following information:
Names of person, names of parents, town of origin, date of testimony
(where given), reported date of death, reported place of death,
reported cause of death, and the names (where the signatures are
legible) of the two people signing the form of testimony.

The reported places of death include:
Bagienica (near Dabrowa), Baranowa, Belzec, Biala Podlaska, Biecz,
Biesiadka, Bochnia, Borki, Borki Nizinskie, Borowa, Brzezany,

Jewish medical and health-care workers were obliged to complete under
the Nazi occupation., sometimes in duplicate or triplicate. The people
named include doctors, dentists, dental technicians, nurses, midwives,
radiologists, cosmeticians, medical students and others.

All these forms were completed in eastern Galician towns. Yad Vashem
holds a set of 2,001 questionnaires of the same type, also from
eastern Galicia, which were indexed for JewishGen some ten years ago
and are described and can be searched on JewishGen=E2=80=99s web site:
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/holocaust/0132_polish_medical_questionna=
ires.html

The records Gesher Galicia has now transcribed consist of 121
questionnaires held in the Przemysl State Archive (Fond 154, IGW102,
Sygn. 31-33) and 12 questionnaires >from AGAD, Warsaw (Fond 424, Sygn.
9, 13, 17, 64, 97 and 179).

Gesher Galicia has fully indexed these records, extracting the
following information:
Names of person, date and place of birth, place of residence and
street address, marital status, occupation, institution and town of
practice, spouse=E2=80=99s name and date of birth, children=E2=80=99s names=
and
ages/dates of birth, names of grandparents [not the parents], date of

Has anyone heard of the Isaakovskaya or Isakovsky Colony before? #poland

Daniel Eig <dtolman@...>
 

With the new release of records >from Bialystok, several volunteers
on Viewmate (who have my eternal gratitude) found that my
Bialystoker ancestors (Epstein/Eckstein and possibly Rogal/Topilski)
apparently came originally >from the Isaakovskaya/Isaovsky Colony
of the Sokolka district sometime before 1890.

Sokolka is a county outside of Bialystok - so presumably it was
located near there - but I can't find any reference to this
"colony" anywhere online.

Does anyone have any idea what this could be referring to?

If anyone could point me to a map of the Sokolka district in
the late 1800s, it would also be appreciated! I'm not clear on
what its borders consisted of back then...

thanks
Daniel Eig

Israel Consul General to attend film screening at IAJGS conference #lodz #poland

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

There are so many exciting things happening at this summer's conference.
We are thrilled to announce that Israel's consul general Ravit Baer
will present the August 11 screening of the acclaimed Israeli movie "The
Dove Flyer." Ms. Baer, a career diplomat in the Israeli foreign
service, served in Europe and Africa before becoming Israel's Consul
General to the Pacific Northwest.

"The Dove Flyer" will be shown as part of a Jewish film festival
that has been curated for the conference by leading Jewish film scholar
and teacher of cinema Dr. Eric Goldman. The film is based on Eli Amir's
blockbuster novel of the same name, brings to life the fragile, doomed
world of the Baghdad Jewish community in 1950.

It is one of many films in the festival of 33 motion pictures that
celebrate Sephardic Jewry, a major track of this summer's conference.
Other highlights of the Seattle conference include the opening night
keynote address by Dr. Devin Naar and the banquet address by Judy
Russell, a Certified Genealogist and Certified Genealogical Lecturer.

In addition, as at previous conferences, key lectures and presentations
will be made available through LIVE! a real-time video streaming service
after up to 90 days after the conference. It's not too late to register
