Announcing 2018 Summer Hours at the Polish State Archives #ukraine

IAJGS 2018 Listserv Communications <iajgs2018@...>
 

The IAJGS 2018 Warsaw Conference Committee is pleased to announce that
we now have an official answer regarding the summer hours at the
Polish State Archives (PSA). The General Director of the PSA system
has advised JRI-Poland that unlike past years, all branches will
remain open throughout the summer months. It is possible that at any
given time, a particular branch will have reduced staff due to planned
vacations, but they will remain open for walk-in visitors.

In addition to the PSA, there are civil records offices (Urzad Stanu
Cywilnego) in thousands of town halls around Poland. These offices are
independent of the Polish State Archives and therefore access to their
records - almost always those less than 100 years old for births -
varies >from town to town.

The level of service - at either Polish State Archives branches or
Civil Records Offices - depends upon many factors. Same day service
should not be expected as the norm when placing a request for
documents even outside of summer months.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Because the leading experts and archivists >from the
Polish and other Eastern European archives have been invited to
participate in our conference, the 2018 IAJGS Warsaw Conference
committee recommends visits to archives and towns before and after
the conference but not during it. The conference lectures will be at
least as valuable to your personal research as spontaneously showing
up in person at an archive or town hall office and may save you time
and energy.

Taube Tours is preparing a schedule of guided trips which may also
provide access to archives around Poland. Stay tuned.

JDC ("The Joint") Emigration Service Index Cards added to JRI-Poland database #galicia

Mark Halpern
 

Jewish Records Indexing - Poland and the American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee (JDC) are pleased to announce a collaborative
agreement to enable searches of the JRI-Poland database to display
links to selected holdings in the JDC Archives Names Database.

The JDC Archives is the institutional repository of the American Jewish
Joint Distribution Committee, a humanitarian relief agency established
in 1914.

The Archives' website (http://archives.jdc.org) includes exhibitions, photo
galleries, finding aids, and topic guides as well as a searchable database
of its digitized collections of almost three million pages of documents,
71,000 photographs, and a Names Index of half a million names of
individuals and families assisted by JDC.

The aim of the JRI-Poland/JDC agreement is to bring the remarkable
historical records of the JDC Archives to the widest audience as well as
to utilize the multi-faceted JRI-Poland search engine options to
dramatically increase the potential for finding cards of interest to
researchers.

The initial collection - now searchable on the JRI-Poland database -
includes 8200 name entries in the "JDC Emigration Service Index Cards:
Warsaw Office, 1945-1949."

While only a relatively small percentage of entries list place of birth, they
include towns currently in Poland, Belarus, Latvia, Lithuania, Ukraine,
Germany, Moldova, Czech Republic, Slovakia, France, Italy and Austria.

About half the cards include "destination" (listing more than fifty
countries).

Researchers are encouraged to search the JRI-Poland database for
possible family members. Use the default "All Regions" in the
"Geographical Region" in the search field.

The board of JRI-Poland expresses its profound appreciation to the JDC
for enabling us to share this important information with the research
community.

my question. I did not have time to answer everyone personally.

The towns were identified thanks to God:
TRANVENET =3D Tarnaveni
Domravent =3D Dumbraveni
Tergo-Morah District =3D Targu Mures District

Vivian Kahn and Sarah Feuerstein stated that it would be difficult to
obtain a certificate >from 1937, due to the protection of privacy laws.

I have her direct granddaughter who can sign the application - is not
that enough?

Also, can anyone guide me to which exact archive I am addressing, and
how do I do it? I have no experience with Romanian archives.

Thank you

(Hungary) Yad Vashem Project to Identity 80% of Hungarian Jews Murdered in Holocaust #hungary

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Haaretz wrote about a Yad Vashem project searching 200,000 Hungarian Jews
murdered in the Holocaust whose names were previously unknown. Not only did
project identify people by name, but also learned about their birth dates,,
where they grew up, learn parent's names and other family members names.
The project is called the Names Recovery Project which collected the names
of Hungarian Jews murdered in the Shoah for Yad Vashem for the past decade.
They added 225,000 names to the 260,000 names they had in 2007 resulting in
80 percent of the Hungarian victims having names. They compiled their own
list of Jews who were deported by using archive searches of census records,
correspondence, employer records , confiscated property and more. The
archives were located in Hungary, Romania and Serbia, all part of Hungary
during World War ll. The names of hundreds of thousands of Jews were
entered into the Yad Vashem database. These were not names provided by
Pages of Testimony but >from documents in archives.

Yad Vashem is using the same model for other name gathering projects for
Poland, the former Soviet Union and the Balkan nations.
