Recommendations for Polish Travel Guide in Galicia #galicia

Ross, Phil
 

I am in the very beginning stages of planning a family genealogy trip
to Galicia (Cracow, Gorlice and Dukla) to take place next summer. If
anyone has any recommendations or heard positive things about any
local Galicia Polish travel guides who specialize in Jewish
genealogy/heritage travel tours and can customize a private tour, I
would greatly appreciate hearing >from you. (We speak no Polish, so a
travel guide who is fluent in English is a must.)

Thank you for your suggestions - which responses I will gladly accept
through private replies.

Fw: "Memorial des 473 deportes Juifs de Lot-et-Garonne" #france

Richard Pinard <pinardpr@...>
 

Dear SIG,

There is a book on Jews deported >from the Lot et Garonne region during
the Nazi occupation called:

"Memorial des 473 deportes Juifs de Lot-et-Garonne" by Alexandre Doulut
and Sandrine Labeau.

I heard that a distant relative is covered in it: Frantisek(Francois)Burg,
born 3 August 1890. He was a hops merchant >from Prague, who happened to
be on a business trip in Western Europe when the war broke out.

I would buy the book, but it is quite expensive and I only
need the one page on Frantisek Burg.

If any of you have the book, could you kindly contact me privately by
email to discuss it? My address is: pinardpr@...

Merci bien et chalome,

Rick Pinard

New project - Balta vital records indexes #ukraine

Yoni Kupchik
 

Dear all,

I am happy to announce a new project - obtaining indexes for the Balta vital records. Balta was one of the main towns in Podolia Gubernia during the 19th century, with a significant Jewish population. Most of the vital records >from the Podolia Gubernia were stored in the Kamenets-Podolsky Archives, and were lost during a fire in 2003. Fortunately, the Jewish vital records for Balta birth, death, marriage, and divorce records for 1862-1918 are stored in the State Archives of Odessa, and are mostly unharmed. However, the information in these records remains unreachable for many, as it is not available online.

We need translators and donations!

If you would like to donate, please go to the main page of Jewishgen.org, click on Donate, >from the list on the right choose Ukraine SIG, and then donate to the Balta project (2nd on the list). Alternatively, go directly to here: http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=22. Our goal is $750 that will be paid for making copies of the indexes.

For helping with the translations please contact me at yonikupchik@....

Travel from Shklov, Belarus to Chicago in 1910 #general

Shayna Muckerheide <smuckerheide@...>
 

What might my ancestors have traveled on and seen during their trip >from
Shklov, Belarus to 12 St. in Chicago in Sept-Oct 1910?

I know they departed >from Libau and arrived at Ellis Island aboard SS Estonia.
I'm presuming they took many wagons or trains in between, and that the
married wife and two sons would have had to wait at Ellis Island before her
husband arrived to pick them up by train >from Chicago.

Also, another son went alone to New Bedford, Massachusetts in 1907, so would
he have taken a ferry >from Ellis Island?

Thanks for your assistance,

Looking for descendants of Vulf DUBROVSKY #general

David Ellis
 

I am looking for descendants of Vulf DUBROVSKY, who was born in Mogilev
(Russia, now Belarus) in 1885. He was the brother of my g-gf Leib DUBROVSKY
(1877-1928), whose name in the United States was Louis FINKEL.

Their parents were Yankel ben Itsko and Ester Rivka bat Leib. That's as far
back as I've been able to trace.

My g-gf Louis was visited in New York once by his brother, but they never
saw each other again. There's more to the story, but I'm not including the
details in this message. They can be shared on request.

I have been in touch with several people researching their DUBROVSKY
ancestors >from the town of Shchadryn outside Mogilev. Although there is
significant sharing of the same given names in our families, we have not
been able to establish a definite connection between our trees.

Please contact me directly by e-mail at the address below. Thanks in
advance!

Tracing an immigrant in Mandate times - DYMENT #general

Michael Scott <Mike@...>
 

I am trying to trace the movements of Clare DYMENT who left Leipzig in 1935
for Palestine. I have records which suggest that she was in London in mid 1939.

Would there be any records between 1935 and 1939 in Palestine. I would like to
find out when and how she arrived in Palestine, where she resided when there
and when and how she left for London.
