Help from the Israel Genealogical Society #austria-czech

Austria-Czech Coordinator <bohmor@...>
 

Shalom friends! We in the Israel Genealogical Society [IGS] have
noticed that the vast majority of letters to Jewishgen of late regard
help with finding Israeli submitters of Pages of Testimony. We would
like to help you and are setting up a process whereby you can send us
your queries and we will field them for you. They will stay on our
website where everyone similarly wanting to find submitters of pages
of testimony or their descendants will post their queries. We will
then publicize the site around Israel so that people can check in
from time to time to see if they know anyone or can help you in your
search.

If you will go to http://www.isragen.org.ilhttp://www.isragen.org.il
and look under "Projects" on the side bar, you will see a category called
"Searching for Submitters of Pages of Testimony in Israel"

Send us ALL the following information to:
Rose Feldman rosef@post.tau.ac.il

Testimony regarding: [Last name, First name]
Country of origin or pre-war residence
Name of submitter of Testimony
Relationship to deceased
Year of submission to YVS
Address and telephone number of Pof Tsubmitter
Your name
Your email and phone number
Date of posting your enquiry

Legal Name Change - Palestine [1921-1948] #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

One of the many problems genealogists have to contend
with is that of "name change". Many family names
were/are changed by immigrants to Palestine/Israel and
are thus not easily recognisable. 

During the British Mandate in Palestine [1921-1948],
people who legally changed their name had their
details officially posted in the "Palestine Gazette".
Approx. 28,000 cases were published [to include old
and new name & sometimes country of origin]. Remember
however, that not everyone changed their names
legally, so your family link may not be listed.
 
Jean-Pierre Stroweis [President of the Jerusalem
Branch of the Israel Genealogical Society] gave me
permission to reproduce his recent posting to Jri-pl:

The Projects CD-ROM prepared for the Jerusalem 2004
Conference includes the searchable database for the
changes of names during the British Mandate over
Palestine [1921-1948].

It is still available >from the Israel Genealogical
Society. For details, see
http://www.isragen.org.il/NROS/forms/infForms.html

You can also refer to:
http://www.isragen.org.il/ROS/index.html

which lists all the databases in this CD and offers a
brief introduction to each particular database. For
example, on this database, the introduction is at:

Would someone be kind enough to give me a web address for Ellis Island so
that i can look for Pursor's lists around turn of the century.
I'm researching the family tree of the late Al Jolson.
Thanks for any help

Bukovina's relavance #romania

s_wiener@...
 

Dear Romanian Researchers,

When this group speaks of Romania - how much of the
time is the crown state of Bukovina included?

My family hails >from Czernowitz, Kosow, Vizhnitsa,
Kotsman, Miliye, Putila, Gura Humorului, and Dorna
Vatra. I have NO family >from the Bucharest, Cluj, Dej
areas except for a few who were relocated by the
Romanians after the war - and who made aliyah as soon
as possible. Some relatives drifted north towards the
area of Kolomyya, Galicia [Autro-Hungarian Empire]
during the years 1870-1910.

I read the e-mails faithfully every day there is a
posting, but I seldom see any references to this
sub-Galician area. Was the Jewish population from
this region very small compared to the rest of
Romania? Are there few members interested in this
region? I had the impression that Czernowitz was
considered a "Little Vienna" and that Vizhnitsa was
the center of Chasidism.

Yad Vashem list many, many Bukovinians in the Pages of
Testimony. For just three of my surnames of interest,
[RUBINGER, FESSLER and WEIGEL] there were some 600
entries. OF course, some were duplicate enties and
some were relatives who had moved to Vien & Berlin but
still..

Fellow SIG members - your thoughts please.

Many thanks,
Shellie Wiener

Boston Ship Arrival - 1903 #general
