Re: The Family of Lea LANDAU from Nowy Sacz #galicia

Ann Harris <aharr14@...>
 

Dear Jacob:

Most of the available records for Nowy Sacz seem not to be indexed, but
are available on line at the Nowy Sacz Archives to be browsed. You might
try, although time-consuming, to search on your own. On the Gesher
Galicia website, under inventories, under archives in southeastern
Poland, there is a list of all the records in the Nowy Sacz Archive and
links to the original images of the pages in the metrical books and other
books of records for that town. The birth records only go back to 1877,
but you might get lucky or find some clues to help. There are also index
books for these records and you could check these out first and then go
back to the records if you find something interesting. When you are
viewing these records, if you click on the letter "z" at the bottom right
corner, the page is magnified for easier viewing. In the Inventories
section of the Gesher Galicia website, there are also inventories of
Galician records >from other archives and whether these available
records (by towns) have been indexed by JRI-Poland or Gesher Galicia
and there are links to original images in the archives, where available.

I've posted a vital record in Polish for which I need a translation. It is
on ViewMate at the following address...

I was able to read the date and his parents' names, but I've posted
the grandparents' names & comments which I can't read. If
somebody could translate all the handwriting that I've posted, that
would be great!

Seeking gravestone photograph from Waterford, Connecticut, USA #general

Joseph Walder
 

I am trying to resolve an apparent discrepancy between information in
the JewishGen online world burial registry (JOWBR) and information I
extracted >from old Russian census records. This concerns one Samuel or
Schmul Luchansky (about 1852-1933).

According to JOWBR, Samuel Luchansky was buried in plot S39,
Congregation Ahavath Chesid cemetery, Waterford, Connecticut, and his
father was named Jacob.

According to old census records, there were two men named Schmul
Luchansky born in the village of Koshevata within a few years of each
other: Schmul Elev (or Eliovich) Luchansky (son of El', probably short
for Eliyahu) in about 1849 and Schmul Iosev (or Osipovich) Luchansky
in about 1852. I believe they were first cousins to each other and to
my great grandmother Krenie Itskovna Luchanskaya. As far as I have
been able to reconstruct, Schmul Elev Luchansky remained in Russia but
Schmul Iosev Luchansky came to the US in 1907 and settled in New
London, Connecticut.

There's an obvious inconsistency between the JOWBR entry giving the
name of Samuel Luchansky's father as Jacob and the old census records
that refer to Schmul Iosev.

I had translation help with the Russian records >from a native speaker,
so I feel confident about that aspect of what I've written above.

If someone is in a position to photograph Samuel Luchansky's
gravestone for me, I would be much obliged.

(Netherlands) Dutch Trains to Compensate Survivors of and Descendants of Jews Deported to Nazi Camps #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Netherlands state-owned train company, Nederlandse Spoorwegen (NS),
announced compensation for survivors and families of the estimated 100,000
Holocaust victims ---70 percent of the total number of Jewish people living
in the Netherlands before World War ll--individuals whose Jewish relatives
were deported on its trains to concentration and extermination camps when
the country was under Nazi-German occupation during World War II.

Under the proposal, Holocaust survivors should receive 15,000 Euros ($17,080
USD). They include Jews, Roma and Sinti survivors transported to the
extermination camps and survived. Relatives and widows of those who died can
expect about 5,000 Euros-7,500. NS reserved several tens of millions of
euros for the payments.

Following the Nazi troops occupying the Netherlands in May 1940, the NS
followed orders to deport the Jews to Westerbork , the transit camp.
Approximately, 107,000 Jews, including Anne Frank, were sent there before
being sent to Auschwitz and Sobibor and other extermination camps. NS was
paid by the Nazis for transporting the Jews. According to national
broadcaster, the NS took in a rough profit of 2.5 million guilder--
present-day 2.5 million Euros ($2.8 million) under Nazi occupation for
operating the trains.

Around 30,000 of the 140,000 Jews living in the Netherlands at the beginning
of World War ll survived the war.

To read more see:

I have no more information on the compensation or how to apply. Please do not
contact me asking me what to do.

INTRO - GLOYSTEIN, WINTER etc Jewish Genealogy question #germany

Paul Kitzmann
 

Hello GerSig,

I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for a few
months. I consider myself to be intermediate or a beginner in Jewish
Genealogy research.

I live in Marine City, Michigan, USA.
My native language is English and I am studying Scriptural Hebrew.
I consider myself an expert or advanced in using a computer. My
experience in using the Internet is extensive.

I have identified the names and some birth and death dates of my
grandparents, my great grandparents and my great great grandparents.

My primary research goals now are to find out: if on the maternal side
there is Jewish ancestry. It was mentioned when growing up but never
talked about.

My JGFF Researcher ID number is 832120.

The family names and ancestral towns that I have entered in the JGFF
are: WINTER and this is what shows:

WINTER (D-M code 763900)
ID 2859 Winter 1 Male 3 Females

This is what I have found so far, Rebeka WINTER married Mr. Gloystein
and she would be my great great grandmother..... both are Jewish names....

Great Grandmother: Bertha Anna GLOYSTEIN born Jan 25, 1835 born
Baghorn, Rastede, Wiefestede, Oldenburg, lower Saxony (???her father,
Freiderich ???Gerhardt??? [his mother Henriette Meljer]).

Her (Bertha's) mother (my Great Great Grandmother) Rebecke (Margarete)
Gerhardine Diederike WINTER [last name] born March 25, 1835 Sandfeld,
Hammelwarden, Elssleth, Brake, Oldenburg, lower Saxony died April 11,
1884. Frieschenmoor, Struckhausen, Ovelgonne, Brake, Oldenburg, lower
Saxony Germany....

There were 4 total children, two died (stillborn and one a year old) and
Bertha (mentioned above) and a youngest son by the name of Anton
GLOYSTEIN.... we do not know if he passed or not. Presumably he died young.

I do have a lot of information when they came to the USA if that would
help, however I am focusing on the maternal and Jewish
geneology/aspect. They, the father Gloystein and Bertha (the daughter)
came to the USA in ~1870/1880's.... his wife Rebecke passed in Germany
as did at least two children.... the youngest Anton Gloystein we have no
information on.....

I am wondering if the WINTER family name (above 1 male and 3 female)
could possibly be Rebecke or relation to help establish Jewish
genealogy.....

-some of the names of cities at that time may be spelled different.....

It appears that in the early 1800's this was a duchey under French rule
which may explain the Sefardic.....

Thank you so much if you have insight, or know where I can start sorting
this out.....
