(Ukraine) IHRA Project to Study Killing Sites In Krements Region of Western Ukraine #ukraine

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) initiated a project
to study Holocaust-era killing sites in the Kremenets region of western
Ukraine. They are scanning the area while they still have survivors who can
tell them where to search. IHRA's report ruled out conducting archeological
digs in killing sites as it violates Jewish law.

Nazis had thousands of killing sites in the Ukraine. This is but one of
them-that is part of a larger project funded by the German government. The
team is led by Meylakh Sheyket, director for the Union of Councils for Jews
in the Former Soviet Union which is using geophysical imaging to delineate
the area where in 1942 Nazis buried thousands of Jews who they had
murdered.

IHRA is an intergovernmental body whose purpose is to place political and
social leaders' support behind the need for Holocaust education, remembrance
and research both nationally and internationally. To learn more about IHRA

In full disclosure I was an invited speaker on access to holocaust records
this June to an IHRA committee.

1875 Zinkov (Ukraine) Conscription Census #ukraine

Linda Shefler
 

Wow!!! I just received the completed spreadsheet of the 1875 Zinkov
Conscription Census >from Dena, and it's amazing! There are 8678
individuals included in this census; not including fathers' names!
The information included is: Page Number, Registration Number, Surname,
Given Name, Father, Relationship to Head of Household, Sex, Age, Age at
Last Revision, Reason Left (place of origin), Comments, Former
Registration Number, Day/Month/Year of Census, Town/Uyzed/Gubernia, Type
of Record and Reference Information.

Some of the places included are:

Berdichev
Butsnevtsy
Derazhnya
Mikhalpol
Olgopol uyezd
Snitovka
Colony Staro-Zakrevskiy Maydan
Village Sutkovtsy, Sutkovetskaya volost
Colony Bzovo, Domsko-Karichinetskaya volost
Village Ignatovtsy, Ignatovetskaya volost
Village Yaroslavka, Volosovetskaya volost
Village Redvintsy, Volosovetskaya volost
Village Molomolintsy, Volosovetskaya volost
Village Volosovtsy, Volosovetskaya volost
Village Parkhamovtsy, Bakhmatovetskaya volost
Village Pankovtsy, Volosovetskaya volost
Village Shrubkov, Volosovetskaya volost
Village Suslovtsy, Suslovetskaya volost
Village Popovtsy, Suslovetskaya volost
Village Kudynka, Suslovetskaya volost

Village Murovana Verbka, Sutkovetskaya volost
6th Uchastok
Volkovintsy
Voytovetskaya volost
Yankovetskaya volost
Yaskovetskaya volost
Zinkov

As you can see, this census covers a wide area and can be very helpful to
anyone searching any places in Letichev uyzed.

I will be sending the spreadsheet out today to everyone who donated $100
or more to this project. Unfortunately, we are still far short of what we
need to collect to compensate Dena for her amazing work. As you know, it
takes a long time for JewishGen to upload records like this, so if you are
interested in getting the records immediately, please make a contribution
of $100 or more to the 1875 Zinkov Conscription Census through JewishGen.
Remember, it is *tax deductible*. And it's also Chanukah, so how about a
nice Chanukah gift to JewishGen! Let's get this funded, so you can get a
copy of these records immediately, and we can get it in line to be
uploaded (which can take months >from when it's fully funded).

Please make sure to let me know when you make a contribution, the amount
and include a copy of your receipt >from JewishGen.

Chanukah Sameach!

Re: Info for Kupel Records #ukraine

Ronald D. Doctor <rondoctor@...>
 

Hi Marilynn,

Try writing to the Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People
(at the National Library of Israel, Hebrew University, Jerusalem). Ask
if they have or can obtain Kupel records. Yochai Ben-Ghedalia is the
Director (archives@...). If they do have records, then write
to Janette Silverman, Ukraine SIG's Coordinator and ask her to include
Kupel in the next request for documents that she sends to the Central
Archives.

Also, check Miriam Weiner's website (rtrfoundation.org). She lists birth
records in Khmelnitsky Archives and Census records in Zhitomir Archives
(as well as Census records that were in the Kamenets Podolskiy Archives
before the fire there). You then can write to the Archives to get
pricing for the records you need.

Finally, for a long shot, check the searchable (and downloadable)
Kremenets Concordance (Master Name Index) at

http://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/Kremenets/web-pages/master-surnames.html

This is an index to all of the documents/records translated by our
Kremenets group. It currently has almost 180,000 entries, including 157
entries for people who were registered in Kupel. Do a town name search
for "Kupel".

Best wishes, and Happy Chanuka,

Ron

MODERATOR'S NOTE: Any vital records that exist for Kupel are most likely to be in the Ukraine State Archives in

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Re: Info for Kupel Records #ukraine

Ronald D. Doctor <rondoctor@...>
 

Hi Marilynn,

Try writing to the Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People
(at the National Library of Israel, Hebrew University, Jerusalem). Ask
if they have or can obtain Kupel records. Yochai Ben-Ghedalia is the
Director (archives@...). If they do have records, then write
to Janette Silverman, Ukraine SIG's Coordinator and ask her to include
Kupel in the next request for documents that she sends to the Central
Archives.

Also, check Miriam Weiner's website (rtrfoundation.org). She lists birth
records in Khmelnitsky Archives and Census records in Zhitomir Archives
(as well as Census records that were in the Kamenets Podolskiy Archives
before the fire there). You then can write to the Archives to get
pricing for the records you need.

Finally, for a long shot, check the searchable (and downloadable)
Kremenets Concordance (Master Name Index) at

http://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/Kremenets/web-pages/master-surnames.html

This is an index to all of the documents/records translated by our
Kremenets group. It currently has almost 180,000 entries, including 157
entries for people who were registered in Kupel. Do a town name search
for "Kupel".

Best wishes, and Happy Chanuka,

Ron

Places in Poland #poland

Steve Adelson <sjadelson@...>
 

Many thanks to everyone who has replied to my request for information
on the 1871 UK census form! The consensus is:

Samuel Pizer: Rashowns -> Raszkow
Fanny Pizer: Coneen -> Konin
Morris Abrahams: Casinere -> Kazimierz (Possibly Kazimierz Biskupi,
which is
8mi >from Konin)

A little more background for those interested, and if anyone might have
additional thoughts:

My gg-grandfather Morris was born around 1850 in "Poland", and had his
first two children in London. I have a copy of the birth registry of the
second child in 1875, >from whence I got the maiden name of my
gg-grandmother, Sarah Jacoby. Supposedly the first child was also born
in England in 1872, but I have not been able to locate a birth registry
for her, nor a marriage registry for my gg-grandparents. What is
especially interesting about the 1871 census with (a) Morris Abrahams
as a border with the Pizers is that his third child, the first born in
the US, was given the name Peyser. This is highly unusual for a given
name, and I have never seen it on anyone else. I have no idea how it
came about; perhaps Morris's mother was a Pizer? But the family name
here is a huge coincidence if there is no relation.

The Abrahams are my most recent "brick wall", and I hope someday to
break it down. There's a YDNA test in progress now >from a direct male
descendent which hopefully will provide some clues.

News on the Synagogue in Przysucha #poland

Marla Raucher Osborn <osborn@...>
 

Dear readers and descendants of Przysucha,

As many of you already know, the historic town of Przysucha (near
Radom) was a major center of Chasidism in Poland and continues today
to be a place of annual pilgrimage. Before the Shoah, the Jewish
population was significant, making up nearly 2/3 of the total town
population.

What you may not be aware is that the massive 18th century limestone
Przysucha synagogue is the largest surviving baroque synagogue in
Poland (a cavernous area of 650 square meters). Despite having been
used by the Nazis as a warehouse and heavily damaged during and after
the War, the building still retains impressive ornamental and structural
details, including a large central bimah, a wall niche for the ark
framed with stucco griffins, the women's gallery, and highly colorful
(though faded) fragments of decorative frescoes on the inside; on the
exterior is very rare and unique feature: a pillory where Jews sentenced
by the Jewish community court would be locked for punishment!

Following the War, the building fell into further disrepair and
neglect. Over the intervening years, misguided “renovations”
contributed to a deteriorating situation and dangerously threatened
the structural integrity of the building. For example, the bimah,
vital for support of the vaulted ceiling, was at one point
cut >from the foundation, then subsequently improperly "corrected"
with the installation of iron bar supports leaving it unsupported
and dangling above the ground.

Fortunately, beginning the year after its acquisition in 2007 by
FODZ (Foundation for the Preservation of Jewish Heritage in Poland)
major work began to stabilize the structure: 2012 saw the building's
foundation reinforced and the bimah properly re-supported; in 2013
roof restoration was completed. Important and necessary first
steps for ensuring that the synagogue - this important piece of Jewish
history - of Przysucha town heritage - can have a future and be open
to visiting Jewish groups and made available for religious and cultural
uses.

The major challenge now is renovation of the interior with its precious
original decorations and unique structural features.

Query about Stanislaw Rozycki_Warsaw #poland

Ken Drabinsky <kenjdgen@...>
 

I would like to contact anyone who may have researched the family history of
Stanislaw Rozycki who lived in Warsaw at the outbreak of WW2. He fled
to Lwow in 1939 and then returned Oct 1941 and was captured and sent
to the Warsaw Ghetto. Stanislaw Rozycki worked for the Oyneg Shabes
Archives (Ringelblum Archives) and wrote detailed pages on life in the
Ghetto.

I am doing some research for descendants of the Rozycki family but haven't
made the connection between Stanislaw and other Rozycki family members
in Warsaw at that time.

Any assistance would be much appreciated, thanks.

I am, also, searching for any information which would lead me to his
lineage and ancestry.

My ancestor's name is Simeon Leon STRAUS. He was born in 1809 in
Germany.
The 1850, 1860, & 1870 USA Census indicates that he is >from Bavaria,
