High Schools in Tarnopol - Mid/Late 1800's #galicia

Yaron Wolfsthal
 

Dear Group,

I'd be grateful for any information about high schools that operated
in Tarnopol in the mid/late 1800's, other than "C. K. Szkoly Realnej w
Tarnopolu".

Ideally, I am looking for schools which published annual year books,
which could serve as a source for genealogical information.

Thank you.

Onesti is in the BACAU county, not Botosani.

I am not aware of ANY "pogrom" in 1879 anywhere in Moldova but of course it is
possible that your relative could have been killed.

Her death certificate at the Bacau office of National Archives may provide
some clue.

In general I find that the term "pogrom" is being used with not much relation
to the history of Jews in Romania, notwithstanding antisemitic incidents were
not uncommon.

Gary,

I saw the post yesterday but it did not completely registered in my mind because I am not well and am not thinking straight so I will ask this: has speech recognition methodology been considered? As I see it, it would be VERY efficient in the case of indexes and the information would go directly into tables.

Now, to JEWISHGEN ADMIN: I AM NOT Flavio Baran. I am Boris Feldblyum. How many times do I have to ask to fix a simple bug?

Thank you.

Greetings to German Sig users and best wishes for a good Chanukah,
of most importance, a healthy and happy new year. My name is Jack Hubert
and I have been a member of Jewish Gen for many years. I am a user of
the internet, not an expert but enough to get by. I have received from
the archivist at Gunzenhausen information regarding the HUBERT family
history.
For example, the daughters of Low HUBERT 1779-1852 born in Cronheim
Bavaria Germany and his wife Hindel born in 1777. Hanna, Rika and
Zilli. According to the info provided all three were born during
the years 1810-1817. Hanna married a man whose last name was WAHLHEIMER.
Hanna may be known as Helena. Rika married a man whose last name was STARK
. Ricka may be known as Rebecca, or Regina.
Zilli married a man whose last name was HERRMANN.
Zilli may be known as Lilli.
If any of the members of the German Sig within their family history have
a record of the marriage please advise.

Thanks Jack Hubert. <jackhubert01@...>

Re: UKRAINE RECORDS – SCANNING BY ALEX KRAKOVSKY & PRESERVATION BY JEWISHGEN

Stefani Elkort Twyford
 

Thanks to Phyllis Berenson for pointing out all the valuable work that Alex Krakovsky does for the Ukrainian reseachers.
This has not been easy for Alex. It seems that ever archive throws up illegal roadblocks to scanning by either Alex or others. He's spent the past few years taking each archive to court and while he has been winning, it doesn't seem to deter the Ministers from concocting new and ridiculous impediments to archive access.

Alex recently reached out in a video on Facebook, asking for Jewish researchers and Jewish Genealogical Societies to send him letters in support of his work that he can show to the archive managers in Kiev.  I am encouraging each of you to take a moment and send Alex an email at alexkrakovsky@... telling him why access to the records is so important to you and your JGS. Here is a copy of the letter I sent him. Feel free to edit it to meet your needs:

Hello,
 
I am the president of the Greater Houston Jewish Genealogical Society. GHJGS has over 50 members who have been actively working to find records of their ancestors, many who come from former Russia and now part of current day Ukraine. Because of the numerous pogroms against Jews and wars, we are aware that many archive records were destroyed. But we are also aware that there are numerous archive records that remain; some moved around and relocated to other archives. 
 
Because of our physical distance from Ukraine, we have been dependent on researchers in each locale finding, photographing and transcribing the records for us. Alex Krakovsky has been most helpful to thousands and thousands of our US based researchers for the work he is doing in the various archives in Ukraine. We understand that he continues to face censure as various archives claim he is violating privacy act. Keep in mind that the records we are researching are mostly at least 100 years or more old and there is no one alive today that could be compromised by these archives being published.
 
Likewise, I also do volunteer work for an organization JewishGen.org which is an international genealogical group that is working diligently to find, copy and transcribe records for the hundreds of thousands of researchers who are hoping to traces of their ancestors in the towns their families once called home.
 
I hope you will reconsider your blocking of Jewish records to all of our researchers. It is quite important to us and we hope you will help us in our quests.
 
Best wishes,
Stefani Elkort Twyford

To Steven Katz:

As was noted in Phyllis Berenson's announcement the Kamenets-Podolsky project is a pilot project done to establish proof of concept for new methodology for translation projects.

Alex Krakovsky has numerous records posted from Novograd-Volyn district.  I understand your impatience about translation projects - I share that being a town leader for two shtetls in the Ukraine - If we continue on the current method of town leaders submitting proposals, getting that approved, raising the funds and then getting paid translators, it will take several lifetimes to process all the data that Alex K is now making available. That is why I am pushing this new methodology

My suggestion to you is just as soon as we can complete the K-P pilot project we will make an announcement and then I expect there will be many projects being proposed using this methodology.  Review the data available in the Alex K wiki for your town and start thinking about a proposed project.  The biggest limitation at that time will be the number of volunteers we can assemble to transcribe the data in Cyrillic.

Sincerely

Re: UKRAINE RECORDS – SCANNING BY ALEX KRAKOVSKY & PRESERVATION BY JEWISHGEN

Stephen Katz
 

A few years back I was pleading, without success, for the powers that be to pay attention to records from Novograd-Volinskiy (Zvhil). This important town was largely ignored when it came to translation and other projects. The excuse I always got was along the line of, "so many towns, so few resources."  Now I see that, for the new pilot project, Kamenets-Podolsky has been chosen. Now, I've got nothing against Kamenets-Podolsky and I wish the "pilot project" well, but this gives me an opportunity to renew my plea for something, some time, to be done involving records from Novograd-Volinskiy.
I do recall that some time ago there was a project to identify records from N-V, as the starting point for obtaining and translating them. After it got started, I heard nothing further. What ever happened to that project??

Hi Haley

You also posted your request on Tracing the Tribe - Jewish Genealogy on Facebook. In a very short time (less than an hour), our experts found and posted many documents for your family - none of those items showed any Jewish connections. Many experts are on TTT as well as here at JewishGen. Good luck in your continued search!

Re: Jewish Migration #belarus #poland #ukraine

Yefim Kogan
 

Mark,  you are right, this is not Revision List  (Revizskaya Skazka).  Revision List was only issued on particular years and I think the last Revision #10th was completed in 1859.

There are many other lists we worked with, and put them in the same format as Revision Lists.

 

The title of this list is saying that this is “Family List of Jews, men who lived in Bessarabia Gubernia in town of Khotin”.  It does not mention conscription in any place.

 

 

In addition to this list, we used to have “Special List”, “Common List”, “Pre-Conscription List”,  and also All Russia Census of 1897.  Unfortunately records from the last list is very hard to find.  I only was able to get a few family records from that list.

 

If anyone knows where to get records from All Russia Census of 1897 from Bessarabia, I would be glad to hear.

 

By the way, as I see you are part of Gesher Galicia. It is clear that I did not list any place in Galicia, even though there were many Jews from Galicia living in Bessarabia, and the reason is that Jews from Galicia where not on that list,  but they were part of other list “Foreign Jews lived in Bessarabia”.  We have many such lists for residence of different towns with Jews citizens of Austria, Italy, Turkey, Holland, Greece.
