Lodz, Poland and surrounding area --searchable databases #yizkorbooks

Recently Joyce Field announced several new databases that are now available
for searching on JewishGen. I thought it would be a good time to review
those of high interest to researchers of Lodz and the surrounding areas in
the Piotrkow Gubernia. Keep in mind that several people >from other places
around the country were forcibly transported to the Lodz Ghetto and may be
listed in one these databases.

* "Lodz Transports to the Chelmno Extermination Camp"
Names of 7,168 individuals >from Lodz who were transferred to the death camp
at Chelmno, June-August 1944.

* "Lodz Ghetto Residents Database"
A record of the 240,000 inhabitants of the Lodz Ghetto. Entries may include
Surname, Maiden name (occasionally), Given name, Sex, Date of birth,
Occupation (usually in German, also in Polish), Ghetto address, Apartment
number, and Notes. This last section may include previous address or town,
date of death or deportation (and possibly the transport number).

* Lodz Ghetto Hospital Illness Records"
Entries include over 5,600 persons with contagious diseases in hospitals in
the Lodz Ghetto, Aug-Dec 1940.

* "Lodz Ghetto Hospital Deaths"
There are over 14,000 deaths recorded in hospitals in the Lodz Ghetto, Nov
1941 thru Jun 1944.

For other databases related to the Holocaust, see:
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Holocaust/

* "Jewish Records Indexing - Poland (JRI-Poland)" is a non-profit,
independent organization.
An amazing searchable database that contains over two and a half million
indices to records >from more than 350 Polish towns. This is a must for
searching Jewish birth, marriage, and death indices of the 19th century
records >from current and former territories of Poland. Where such records
are available, they may include towns that are now part of Lithuania,
Ukraine and Belarus. This also includes The 1929 Polish Business Directory
Project database. http://www.jri-poland.org

Detailed explanations about each of these databases are available on the
sites. As eager as you may be to jump right in and search the databases,
the results will be much more meaningful and lead to better understanding of
the results if you take the time to read the explanations. If you can't
wait, then read them after your searches <G>.

You can access all the databases by searching through the All Poland
Database http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Poland/

Arnold Samlan
 

I recently discovered my great-great-grandfather's name: Joseph/Yosef
Freindlich (or close spelling). While this is all the information that I have as
of the moment, his daughter, Rosie (Freindlich) Samlan came to Montreal, most
likely in the 1890's. She was widowed at a young age, and died herself in 1915,
leaving an only son, my grandfather.

The only information I have >from my family is that its roots are ">from
Romania," which, in that time period, could be Romania proper or any of a few
other nearby countries.

Anyone with the last name of Freindlich (or a closely related name) who
believes that they might have a family connection, or might have other
information, please contact me.

Best wishes for a shana tova,

Re: Travel to Belarus? #belarus

Franklin J. Swartz <eejhp@...>
 

Dear All,

I know that Mr Alpert asked for a private response to his enquiry
about travel for genealogical research but, since we frequently
receive enquiries of this sort, I thought I would direct a reply to
the entire group.

Travel of this kind can be productive provided that you plan well in
advance.

National Archives, which contain records up to 1918, will make records
available for you to examine if you give them advance notice of which
records wish to see. There is no charge for this but you do have to
pay for copies. Regional archives, which hold records >from 1918
onwards make a nominal charge for access to designated records but
there is no charge for records relating to the Holocaust or the Second
World War. Again, there is a charge for copying.

The problem arises, of course, as to how to know which records to
designate. Unless you already know >from some other source which
records you want it is necessary beforehand to have either a private
researcher or a the archive itself do a name search which will provide
you with a list of the records. If you use a private researcher I urge
you to do so legally. This requires that you give notarised
authorisation to the designated researcher to search for specific
names. A qualified researcher working within the legal framework of
Belarus will give you information about authorisation. Despite rumours
to the contrary all archives are accessible to researchers with proper
authorisation. If you are literate in Russian and have the time and
patience you can conduct this stage of the research yourself.

In terms of time for preparation you should plan at least three months
for the name search and give the archive at least a month's advance
notice for access to the specific records you need. Obviously if you
do not speak or read Russian you will need to have a researcher to
assist you in the archive.

As I said above a personal visit to the archives can be rewarding but
you must be prepared in advance. Just dropping into the archive will
be fruitless.

Best regards,

Frank

SIG Announcement New Material on Website #ukraine

Deborah Glassman <dgg2020@...>
 

Dear SIG Members

I congratulate you on the outpouring of enthusiasm you have shown since we
asked for your help in creating a more complete record on the towns where
our families lived. You have shared occupational information that covers
skillsets as diverse as wheelwrights, doctors (including women in the
nineteenth century), and water carriers. You have told us about your
families in small and large towns across Ukraina. You have shared pictures
and diplomas and military discharges and previously unpublished census
information and though the magnitude of the response has slowed us a bit in
a week with Jewish holidays, I hope you will see all that has been sent
already, before Yom Kippur.

Please go to our Ukraine SIG's web page and look on the Project Page
http://www.jewishgen.org/Ukraine/projects.htm. Though it is not entirely
pretty yet, there is a lot of good, new information there.

The Kremenets Shtetl CO-OP which is part of JRI-Poland has created a great
set of tools that you need to know about. It is a set of translations,
transliterations, and images, of Russian and Hebrew words in Vital Records
Documents. If you have been struggling over a document acquired in an
archives, this page gives you a place to look at the Russian script and
Hebrew script for Towns, Given names, causes of death, occupations, and key
words that appear throughout comparable documents! It is amazing. My web
browser will certainly be bookmarking this page for my regular return!
Congratulations on such a wonderful project to project leaders Dr. Ron
Doctor and Sheree Roth.

Do you know how few and precious the ShtetLink sites are, that cover towns
within the nine gubernias of Russian Empire Ukraine? Now we have a list of
them and links to them >from our Project Page and we are asking the
Webmasters to send us postable reports on what they are doing, what help
they need, and the progress they are making in uncovering new resources.

People submitting information for the browseable databases have been great
at keeping the information coming. It is easier to upload however when it is
submitted to Historian2020@comcast.net in a format that matches the
posting - example; Locale's Name and Gubernia; Locale's name today and
Oblast; Jewish family's surname; Dates of residence (approximate is fine so
is leaving it blank); Your Name and your JGFF number; Date submitted. [You
need a JGFF number so fellow genealogists can find you to network with you
without us publishing your email address for all to see.]

There are today fifteen ShtetLinks on JewishGen Servers which you have
augmented with fifteen more Collection point sites and by the end of this
week we will have passed twenty of the latter. If you have pictures or
records of any town in the Ukraine that does not have a ShtetLink, please
send your information and we will start a Collection point for it. If you
have no pictures, and no records, but are willing to help index materials
for that community in English or in any other language, tell us, we will
find important tasks for you to do. If you are a webmaster of a ShtetlLink
and would like us to concentrate on some of the towns around your community
so that you can add them to your site's resources, just let us know.

If you have not filled in a Volunteer or Donor Form, you can find them on
our Project Page too. As you contribute to JewishGenerosity programs, please
accompany it with a note about the programs that you find valuable and
attractive and take a minute to write it or cc it to your SIG
Co-Coordinators - Freya Maslov Freyab@aol.com or myself ,Deborah Glassman

I would be grateful for any and all information or hints
to further research about the below mentioned families:

******************
* PROPIS - LURIE *
******************

I. (--?--) PROPIS
(He is *presumed* to have lived in Lithuania=20
- but that has not been substantiated yet).
PROPIS had three known children:
A. (--?--) PROPIS lived in 1908 at Odessa, Ukraine.
B. M PROPIS lived in 1908 at 67, Greene Street, New York,
New York, USA.
C. Susel PROPIS was also known as Jennie. She was born circa 1874

has it that her brother(s) paid her passage. Family lore also has
it that her husband Max came to the US later =96 after 1908.

According to the census 1920 she was a widow and lived in at 270
Prince Street, Essex county, New Jersey, USA.

*** When Max LURIE came to the US and what happened to him later
