Leuchs Directory #austria-czech

Sharon Gill
 

I've recently searched the Genealogy Indexer and believe I have found an entry for my Great
Grandfather. Sadly, the link doesn't work and although I have searched to try and find another
source for the directory, I haven't been able to find it. I'm looking for 1897-1901 Moravia and
Austrian Silesia Business Directory (Leuchs vol. 19a)
Any ideas please? Many thanks

During a trip to Vienna last month, I had the opportunity to visit the
Jewish Museum
which was featuring a special exhibit about the Ringstrasse. One focus of
this
exhibit was the extensive Jewish property ownership in and around the Ring.
The
exhibit included a book or ledger compiled by Georg Gaugusch listing
property owners
and purchase transactions. I was delighted to find a couple of listings for
property
owned by my great-great-grandfather Leon WECHSLER, and I was then able to
visit
both buildings - very exciting!

Given the museum setting, I was only able to spend a few minutes flipping
through
the Georg Gaugusch book of property listings. Does anyone know more about
this
book? Is it available anywhere online or in print? I would love to be able
to spend
more time with it. I photographed a couple of pages but didn't think to
photograph
the title page so I can't identify the book in more detail. Thanks for any
suggestions!

Clarification re Ringstrasse property ownership exhibit #austria-czech

Cory Streisinger
 

. ..The exhibit included a book or ledger compiled by Georg Gaugusch listing
property owners and purchase transactions. ...

Just to clarify my earlier post - the book in the Vienna Ringstrasse exhibit
was not Georg Gaugusch's book"Wer Einmal War." Although Georg Gaugusch was
the author, this was a much smaller book, more like a ledger, listing property transactions
and property ownership along the Ringstrasse. It was soft-cover and may not have been
formally published. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Tarnobrzeg new source school records #galicia

Gayle Schlissel Riley
 

I have a new contact in Tarnobrzeg. A young man who sent school records
for 1891. Plus a pic of the old school house for the grade school. He does
not speak English.

I will share the data when I can pull it all together.

There is also a Facebook page. With many pics.

Hyphenated names. #austria-czech

mrl@...
 

Hi - I discovered a family that was related to my wife, that lived in
Vienna, and documents >from the very early 1940s, show that they were
using a hyphenated surname, Kramer-Schall. Can anyone tell me how
common it was to use hyphenated names, and why was it done? When the
survivors came to America, the Kramer was dropped >from the surname.
Thanks. - Mark


Zydowskie Cadastral Map 1851/1879 on the Gesher Galicia Map Room #galicia

Jay Osborn <jay.osborn@...>
 

We've just posted to the Gesher Galicia Map Room a composite historical
cadastral map of the interesting Galician village of Zydowskie:

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/zydowskie-1851-1879/

A complete, full-color intermediate cadastral map of the village of
Zydowskie (Zhydivske, Zhydowskie), which means "Jewish", although the
19th-century Jewish population of the village was fewer than 20 people.
The map presented is a composite of two separate and incomplete
archive sets, one >from 1851 (village center-west plus north and east)
and one >from 1879 (village center-east and south). Both of these maps
were clearly field-working editions; each sheet was quartered and
cloth-backed to make up a compact traveling set. The maps are rough
from wear but clearly labeled; all houses are numbered, and all parcels
carry both a parcel number and the house number of the landowner. A
small wooden church and two tiny Catholic cemeteries are shown.
Images for this map were provided to Gesher Galicia by the Archiwum
Panstwowe w Rzeszowie.

Zydowskie is south of Jaslo in today's Poland, near the border with
Slovakia. Polish Wikipedia states that the village was in existence for at
least 400 years; it was heavily damaged in WWI, then partly rebuilt, only
to be completely destroyed in WWII. Most of the surviving population
later settled in nearby villages, leaving what remains of Zydowskie abandoned.

"Union - Blaetter der Emigration" #general

DAVID LEWIN <davidlewin@...>
 

I have recently discovered by chance the existence of a journal named
"Union - Blaetter der Emigration" published in the 1930's and 1940's by
Jewish emigrants to South Africa who had escaped Germany. It appears
rather similar to to the journal "Aufbau" in concept.

Does anyone here know >from when till when it was published and whether
there is a complete set available anywhere?

Google Translate (http://translate.google.com/) does that for you, just type

auto-detects the language (most of the time).
