I want to support Saul's standpoint that urban Jewry in South Africa has not
been methodically addressed, although the Durban project is to be praised.

We are dealing with an issue that involved the majority of S African Jewry,
its institutions,and families.
I suggest we begin with those of >from urban and suburban communities to at
least record details, of family, neighbours, friends in their neighbourhood.
Perhaps all subscribers/recipients of the SA SIG newsletter should lead the
way.

A modest example appeared in our first newsletter on Woodstock by yours
truly.

I cannot think of anything more worthwhile in our current priorities.

Dear Genners

I respect what has been said by Saul about the book "Jewish Life in SA
Country Communities Vol 2" and am sure that it will be a must for anyone
tracing the families of those who lived in the area covered by the book.

However, I will disagree with Saul's last statement ..... "For me it has
also highlighted, again, the problem of no equivalent project
for the 'urban' Jews of the cities of South Africa."

There is a team of writers and compilers working feverishly in Durban to
finalise a major work which will be published on the Durban Jewish
community. This obviously takes into account the previous two works in
the past, and traces the history of families, personalities, those in
professions, art, drama, music and sport almost to the present day.
Hopefully this work will be completed within the next year. I will keep
you posted on progress.

Allen,

Rozdol records go through 1901. They get released in bunches so I
expected they would have been among the Forty or so towns that came out
last summer (2004), but I was disappointed. I expect they'll be in the
next batch, whenever that is.

Tell more about your family. We may have some overlapping interests.

I am indebted to readers of this site who answered my posting seeking
information about my grandfather™s town in Galicia and guided me to the
index of records for JRI-Poland. Even without the source documents, the
index itself has proved to be a treasure trove of information about the
history of my family and enabled me to identify family members who lived
in a nearby town, and who preceded by grandfather to New York. An
examination of the birth records >from the Rozdol administrative
sub-district of Stanislawow for 1869 to1900 allowed me to identify by name
2 brothers and 3 sisters of my grandfather. My grandfather said that he
had 6 sisters and the notations on the reverse of photographs he received
from Galicia confirm that. Three sisters must have been born after 1900.
QUESTION: Are there more birth records for the period after 1900 for
Rozdol? Are they accessible?

Virtual museum and Bialystok area society plots in New York and New Jersey #poland

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

Greetings,

This is my first posting to your Discussion Group. As some of you
already know, I have put online my first web site, a virtual (Internet only)
museum of Jewish family history. The URL is www.museumoffamilyhistory.com .
It is freely accessible to anyone who would like to visit the site.

In the past year or two, I have undertaken a project to database burials
from many of the New York and New Jersey metro area cemeteries. Using the
list provided on the BialyGen website, I have databased nearly every burial
in nearly every society plot that is associated with the towns listed as a
"BialyGen Town," according to the BialyGen website. You can look up your
surnames of interest in "The Cemetery Project" section of the Museum
(accessed via the Surames link at
www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/projects.cemetery.htm .) These lists, however,
will give you a limited amount of information. They will only tell you that
someone with a particular surname is buried in a plot that is associated
with a certain town/city in Poland, but it is a start. There is a separate
web page for every town that is associated with one or more society plots in
New York/New Jersey. For example, for the city of Bialystok, there is a web
page that lists all unique surnames for the combined Bialystok society plots
in New York and New Jersey. If you happen to find a surname on a particular
web page that is of interest to you, please let me know the name and
town/city, and I will send you what information I have on these names when I
can. Most likely, the information that will be provided to you will only be
the particular surname, given name, the town/city that is associated with
the particular society plot, and the name of the cemetery where the person
is buried.

You will also find more than sixty overall grounds maps >from over three
dozen cemeteries in New York, New Jersey and Southern Florida, the use of
which will better prepare you for your next visit to the cemetery.

Also at the Museum are a number of exhibitions that I have created,
including one entitled "Postcards >from Home"
(www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/pfh01.htm) . Here you will find over 200
pre-WWII family photographs, most of which have been graciously sent to me
by other researchers to be put on display . The vast majority of these
photographs were taken in Poland. There are a good number of photographs in
this exhibition that were taken in Bialystok and vicinity. More family
photographs >from anywhere in pre-war Europe are always welcome. They can be
sent to postmaster@museumoffamilyhistory.com .

In the Map Room (www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/map.room.htm ), I have on
display three dozen maps that were produced in Poland in between the two
World Wars. One is of Bialystok and vicinity (not a town map of the city
itself, but rather the surrounding areas). There are also a number of other
such maps on display of other regions of interest to Bialystok researchers,
e.g. Bielsk Podlaski, Bransk, Goniadz, Trzcianne, Janow, Korycin, Lapy,
Suraz, Ciechanowiec, Milejczyce and Nowy Dwor. Many other maps of the areas
mentioned in the "BialyGen Towns" list will be presented in the future.

There is also a Links page (www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/links.htm) ,
that provides links to over 350 genealogical and non-genealogical sites of
interest. You might also want to check the Museum's Updates page >from time
to time to see what new material has been added to the Museum, and what
exhibitions are to come. Ideas for future exhibitions are always welcome.

Best wishes for continued successful research,
Steven Lasky
