Church Records in Galicia Villages #galicia

Noam Silberberg <noam.silberberg@...>
 

Dear All,

My great grandmother was born in 1883 in Jasienow Polny, a very
small village near Horodenka. There were probably a few Jewish
families in the village. One of them was my great grandmothers
family - HECHT, and another was her mother's family - FEUER.

The LDS have microfilms of the Greek Catholic Church for that
village. Is it possible that the church records in such a small village
(a population of only a few hundreds) would include the village's
Jewish families?

Thanks,

Noam Silberberg

Shalom,

Happily the month of May saw a continued hubbub of activity in the
Yizkor Book project. So many out there are contributing to the
success of the project and at every opportunity I send out my thanks
to the coordinators, volunteers and translators for the incredible
work they are doing in keeping the flame of our lost families and
communities alive. If there is a Yizkor Book that has yet to appear
in our index and it is close to your heart, please contact me and I
will assist, as much as possible in helping you to see translations
of this book online.

More synagogue photos from pre-WWII or today's Poland #poland

steve725@...
 

I have just added even more photos of synagogues that once stood in today's
Poland, or in the Poland that existed before World War II.

Now in the Ukraine, but before WWII in Poland (listed according to the
Ukrainian name, with the pre-WWII Polish name in parentheses) When part of
Galicia around the turn of the 20th century, it is so indicated:

Ostroh (Ostrog)
Podgaytsy (Podhajce) Galicia
Rivne (Rowne)
Sokal (Sokal) Galicia
Ivano-Frankivsk (Stanislawow) Galicia
Lanovtsy, Ukraine (Volyhnia province, Russian Empire, cir 1900 and Wolyn
province in Poland in 1930)
Ternopil (Tarnopol) Galicia
Vishnevets (Wisniowiec) Galicia
Voynilov (Wojnilow) Galicia
Volodymyr Volynskyy (Wlodzimierz Wolynski)
Zalishchyky (Zaleszczyki) Galicia
Zhovkva (Zotkiew) Galicia

In towns and cities that are today still in Poland. When "Galicia" is
indicated, the town was in the former Galicia around the turn of the 20th
century. Otherwise within the parentheses is the name of the province in
which the town was located cir 1930.):

Mielec (Galicia)
Ostrow Wielkopolski (Poznan)
Parzeczew (Lodz)
Przeworsk (Galicia)
Radomysl Wielki (Galicia)
Ropczyce (Galicia)
Rozan (Bialystok/Warszawa)

More synagogue photos from pre-WWII or today's Poland #poland

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

I have just added even more photos of synagogues that once stood in today's
Poland, or in the Poland that existed before World War II.

Now in the Ukraine, but before WWII in Poland (listed according to the
Ukrainian name, with the pre-WWII Polish name in parentheses) When part of
Galicia around the turn of the 20th century, it is so indicated:

Ostroh (Ostrog)
Podgaytsy (Podhajce) Galicia
Rivne (Rowne)
Sokal (Sokal) Galicia
Ivano-Frankivsk (Stanislawow) Galicia
Lanivtsi (Lanowce) Galicia
Ternopil (Tarnopol) Galicia
Vishnevets (Wisniowiec) Galicia
Voynilov (Wojnilow) Galicia
Volodymyr Volynskyy (Wlodzimierz Wolynski)
Zalishchyky (Zaleszczyki) Galicia
Zhovkva (Zotkiew) Galicia

In towns and cities that are today still in Poland. When "Galicia" is
indicated, the town was in the former Galicia around the turn of the 20th
century. Otherwise within the parentheses is the name of the province in
which the town was located cir 1930.):

Mielec (Galicia)
Ostrow Wielkopolski (Poznan)
Parzeczew (Lodz)
Przeworsk (Galicia)
Radomysl Wielki (Galicia)
Ropczyce (Galicia)
Rozan (Bialystok/Warszawa)
Rzochow (Galicia)
Suwalki (Bialystok)

Yizkor Book Project, May 2010 #lodz #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Happily the month of May saw a continued hubbub of activity in the
Yizkor Book project. So many out there are contributing to the
success of the project and at every opportunity I send out my thanks
to the coordinators, volunteers and translators for the incredible
work they are doing in keeping the flame of our lost families and
communities alive. If there is a Yizkor Book that has yet to appear
in our index and it is close to your heart, please contact me and I
will assist, as much as possible in helping you to see translations
of this book online.

Shalom,

Happily the month of May saw a continued hubbub of activity in the
Yizkor Book project. So many out there are contributing to the
success of the project and at every opportunity I send out my thanks
to the coordinators, volunteers and translators for the incredible
work they are doing in keeping the flame of our lost families and
communities alive. If there is a Yizkor Book that has yet to appear
in our index and it is close to your heart, please contact me and I
will assist, as much as possible in helping you to see translations
of this book online.

searching for info on great grandfather Israel (Isadore) MOJSEZON and family #warsaw #poland

leahpi@...
 

Hi all,

My name is Leah and I've relatively new to the group.
I'm researching two branches of my family that I believe came >from near Warsaw
in the 1880s.

My great grandfather Israel (Isadore) MOJSEZON was born in 1882 in Poland.
I think he is >from or near Warsaw but have no proof. I'm trying to find
any records of where he was from.
He had two brothers that I know of, Nathan (Natan) and David.
Both brothers moved to the UK and changed the family name to Morrison.
Isadore immigrated to the US in 1910 with his wife Celia MILBERG
and their first two children.
They changed the family name to Benson for immigration reasons.

Celia MILBERG, my great grandmother came >from Wegrow,
Poland outside of Warsaw. Other family names married into the family
are SEPIURKA and BURSZTYN. If anyone is connected to any of these families,
please be in touch.

Any help greatly appreciated!
