Lithuania/LitvakSIG - new data from the Vilnius household registers project

Russ Maurer
 

LitvakSIG is pleased to announce that batch 8 of the Vilnius household registers is now available to qualified donors.

The registers were created between 1919 and 1940 when Wilno (Vilnius) city and Wilno voivodeship were part of Poland. The registers contain detailed information about everyone who lived in Wilno at that time, as well as information about many visitors. This includes refugees fleeing the Nazis toward Vilnius in autumn of 1939. The registers will potentially hold discoveries for anyone whose family was in that general area, which today includes parts of Lithuania, Belarus, and northeast Poland. I urge you to check the free batch previews described below, even if you don’t think your family was ever in Vilnius. There have already been unexpected discoveries. There are countless mentions of locations outside the immediate Vilnius area.

As this is a very large project that will go on for years, we are releasing data in batches of about 5000 lines. Batch 8, containing 5018 lines, includes data from just two addresses: an enormous apartment building at Szopena 3 and a smaller building at Wielka Stefanska 4.  You can find these streets on our Vilnius
interactive street map  (https://www.litvaksig.org/vilnius-map/). To help you determine if this batch or a previous batch is relevant to your research, you can review a file containing previews of all eight batches to date (http://tinyurl.com/VHR-previews). The batch preview is a bare-bones version of the batch spreadsheet containing just the full name and year of birth (or age) of each person. The previews are presented both in original order and alphabetically by surname. The previews also include instructions to qualify to receive the full batch data.

After about 18 months, batch 8 will be added to our free, searchable, All-Lithuania database.

More information about the Vilnius household registers can be found on  the VHR home page, https://www.litvaksig.org/research/special-projects/vilnius-household-registers.  Any inquiries related to VHR should be directed to me at vhrproject@....

UKRAINE RECORDS – SCANNING BY ALEX KRAKOVSKY & PRESERVATION BY JEWISHGEN

Phyllis Berenson
 

Alex Krakovsky, a Jewish Ukrainian, is using freedom of information laws and the court system in Ukraine to force archives to allow him to scan their records, as was never before permitted.  He then posts them online to a wiki page, yielding a massive amount of raw data for the Ukraine researcher.  Alex uses high resolution scanning equipment to scan virtually all records in an archive, posting to a wiki just for Jewish records.  He has spent a great deal of time and his own money doing this important work and constantly battling a very difficult government system. He has also received funds donated for purchase of state-of-the-art scanners, which are now in use in most Ukraine archives.

 

You can access his main wiki page at this URL (use Google Chrome to translate - it is all in Ukrainian):

https://uk.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%84%D0%B2%D1%80%D0%B5%D0%B9%D1%81%D1%8C%D0%BA%D0%B5_%D0%BC%D1%96%D1%81%D1%82%D0%B5%D1%87%D0%BA%D0%BE#%D0%97%D0%B2%D0%B5%D0%BD%D0%B8%D0%B3%D0%BE%D1%80%D0%BE%D0%B4%D1%81%D1%8C%D0%BA%D0%B8%D0%B9_%D0%BF%D0%BE%D0%B2%D1%96%D1%82

 

The Ukraine Research Group, under a team headed by Gary Pokrassa, our Data Acquisition Director, is working to capture and preserve the scanned files on the JewishGen server, which includes Index files for several larger cities including Kiev and Zhitomir, as well as multiple un-indexed records. 

 

At present we have over 285,000 pages of documents already loaded on our server, but we have less than half of what Alex has already published and he uploads new files every day. We are working hard to catch up to him.  These are massive files which should exceed 1TB of information.

 

We have several transcription projects underway.  We have selected Kamenets-Podolskiy for a pilot project using metric records from 1875-1888 as posted by Alex Krakovsky, to work with these files using innovative methodology which we hope will be a prototype for future translation projects by just creating our own indexes.  Since the information in index files are very simple, just listing the surname, given name, year and record number, we are going to use a team of people who are fluent in Russian to transcribe (not translate) the names and other information in Cyrillic into a printed spreadsheet and then use the facility on the SteveMorse.org site to transliterate the names.

 

This opens up an entire pool of volunteers not previously utilized and will rapidly be able to generate online searchable index records.  The main concern of a researcher is to first find the names and desired records.  Once published, this data will allow a researcher to quickly identify and locate a record of interest; then the actual record can be found on the wiki and can then be translated using ViewMate or other means.  This pilot program is under the direction of Joel Spector and Gary Pokrassa.

 

We are deeply grateful to Alex Krakovsky for his work and his underlying belief that all archived records should be available and free to the public.  We believe the data he captures and this methodology will be a game-changer for Ukraine research, and will enhance the researcher’s ability to identify and locate records of interest.

 

 And special thanks to Gary Pokrassa, Joel Spector, and the team for their thorough dedication to preserve these vital data.

Re: Greenawald family Pennsylvania

Renee Steinig
 

Records on Ancestry show that Eva Helen GREENAWALD was born in
Schuykill Haven, PA, on 28 May 1911. She was the fourth child of Lewis
Nathan GREENAWALD, age 25, and Nora MOYER, 22, both born in
Pennsylvania.

In November 1911, Eva was baptized at St. John's United Church of
Christ in Schuylkill Haven and at least two of her siblings were also
baptized there. Lewis and Nora are buried in a church cemetery, as are
Lewis's parents, Wilson and Eva Lovina Epler GREENAWALD and many other
relatives. (See FindaGrave.com.)

So if there was Jewish ancestry in the family, conversion occurred
long before your great-grandmother was born. But I think even a
conversion generations earlier is unlikely. Indeed, GREENWALD (and
variations) can be a Jewish name, but, like many names derived from
German, it was also found among non-Jews. FamilySearch.org has
numerous 19th century German church records for people named GRUNWALD
etc.

A tree on Ancestry
(https://www.ancestry.com/family-tree/tree/24318142) traces your
GREENAWALD family back many generations, to a Jacob GRUNEWALD (umlaut
on the U) who immigrated from Alsace in the 18th century. It's worth a
look; just keep in mind that trees found online sometimes contain
errors.

Re: Jewish Migration #belarus #poland #ukraine

Mark Jacobson
 

Hi Yefim,

I think what you are working with is not a Revision List, which recorded family units with males and females of all ages often including deceased individuals, registered legally in a town and tracked over time. From your description it appears to be the 1874-75 military conscription census that only recorded males and recorded people where they actually lived, not where they were registered (although many I have found in the Ukraine include town of registration so you can backtrack to the earlier Revision Lists). This was done for the revised conscription law that reduced time of service but increased the pool of those who had to serve. You are correct that these census, more than Revision Lists which are static and show people in the same town over decades even though they physically left long before or never actually lived there, show the migration patterns clearly. If you find someone in the 1897 Census or various census from the 1880s or 1890s you will see other movement. In the Ukraine Jews were registered in 1882 in villages as part of a plan to remove Jews from small towns and move them to cities, that census shows a lot of movement because many are in different towns than 1875 and these were revised with red pen when people left over the next 10 years.

The list I worked on shows how the Jews were migrating... I told you that people lived in Khotin, Bessarabia,  but about 30% were registered in other places in Bessarabia, and many other gubernias of Russian Empire.

The most common places families were registered were Brichany, Lipkany and Ataki in Bessarabia, Zhvanets, Lyantskorun, Orinin, Kamenets in Kamenets uezd of Podolia, also in many other places in Podolia, Volhynia, Kiev, Grodno, Kherson gubernias as well as in Lomza, Siedlce of King of Poland.
Information of where the family was registered entered into the record in the comments and because of it can be viewer om searches.
That particular set of records is going to be sent to JewishGen by the end of December and become available soon after.

Myth that our ancestors lived in a shteitl for the whole life and did not move much is definitely not true.  Our ancestors moved a lot, sometimes because of government laws not allowing them to stay in one place (for many reasons), but also many Jews, I would say mostly men moved to other towns, regions to marry someone, and you can see that in Marriage records.

Here is an article presented at one of the conferences about Jewish Migration:

As to the document itself, it's clearly a house by house, street by street census of the town of Sanok and this page of it referred to two families occupying the first two house or apartment numbers in the street. It was not updated over time (at least not the page they sent me). The fact that the heading on the census page defines the region (Galicia), the district (Sanok) and the town (Sanok) would seem to imply that this 1900 census was performed on a wide basis, not just as a Sanok town census  - but I haven't actually checked out the assumption.
