Slovakian Jewry - emigration patterns? #general

AK <alan.kolnik@...>
 

It appears that it is possible that my family, or at least my family name,
originated in Slovakia, in an area about 50 miles NE of Bratislava, and
about the same distance NW of Nitra, in a village called Hrachoviste (today,
pop. about 660, I believe). There are many people living there and from
there in the US with the last name "KOLNIK", who are NOT Jewish. However,
as far as we know, the Jewish family with our last name is only found in the
Pinsk-Minsk area (Luninetz and Kozhanhorodok, specifically, in what was
Poland to WWII and Belarus today), and Horodenka (which at one point, like
Slovakia, was part of the Austor Hungarian Empire). We have discovered a
record of a Kolnik in Hrachoviste as far back as 1702. JewishGEn also shows
researchers investigating their roots in villages close by, like Krajne.

Has anyone traced possible emigration patterns of jews out of Slovakia -
where did they go, and when, if at all?

Re: The familianten law in Moravia #austria-czech

Michael Gordy
 

I too am very interested in the status of Familiaten books in Moravia,
so appreciated Henry Wellisch's informative note. Noting that
Familianten records are NOT mentioned in Hugo Gold's summary of the
Brno archive holdings, Mr Wellisch concluded:
The present status of the Familianten books for Moravia is not clear and as
I see it, the only way to find out more about this problem is to do some
research in Moravia.
I have a special interest in the town of Straznice, near Hodonin in
south Moravia -- in fact, I visited Straznice last weekend! While
there, I bought the book "Straznice: Kapitoly z Dejin Mesta," edited
by Jiri Pajer (the noted town historian, who also serve as the caretaker
of the wonderful Jewish cemetery). The book contains a long chapter
by Jaroslav Klenovsky on the Jewish community. As the book is entirely
in Czech, I can't read it to any meaningful degree, but I do spot a
footnote that might possibly pertain to Familianten records:
"Soupis familiantu zidovske obce ve Straznici z roku 1832,
MZA Brno, pobocka Kromeriz, fond F 90 Velkostatek Straznice,
karton 204."

Regardless of whether this footnote does pertain, Mr Klenovsky might
be able to shed some light on the Brno holdings.

For those who share my interest in Straznice: Please contact me!
I have collected some interesting information on this trip that I
will be pleased to share as I find time to write it all down.

Gorzkow, LU - Zamosc PSA project. #general

Kirsten Gradel <kmgradel@...>
 

To family historians with interests in the Zamosc-Lublin area of Poland.

Jewish Records Indexing-Poland is pleased to announce that we have just
received the first ever indexes >from the Polish State Archives(PSA) in
Zamosc and Lublin for the unfilmed Gorzkow years: Births, Marriages 1876,
1892-1894, 1897-1903; Deaths 1876, 1884, 1892-1894, 1897-1903, in all 386
entries.

Gorzkow is one of smaller towns in the Zamosc-Lublin area, located 46 km
SE of Lublin at latitude/longitude 5057/2301 and it had in 1921 a Jewish
population of 434. Nearest towns with Jewish records for which there may
be family names similar to those in Gorzkow are Krasnystaw,
Izbica/Tarnogora, Zolkiewka, Turobin.

In the years to come we will receive new indexes as they are transferred
from Gorzkow City Archives(USC) to Zamosc PSA after 100 years. The years
available at USC are BMD 1904-38!

The most common surnames in the present PSA file, found 5 or more times,
are the following:

BERGAJZEN, BLANK, BRANDT, CHOCHMAN, DIAMENT, DYAMENT, EDELSZTAJN, ERLICH,
FLIKER, FRANK, GARDEN, GEJLER, GELFMAN, GERSZENZON, GOCHMAN, GOLDBAUM,
KERSZENBAUM, KORN, LAJST, OJRECHMAN, PULWER, SZTOKGAMER, SZWARC, WAJC,
WAJS, WEBERSZPIL, ZAJDWEBER, ZALCMAN, ZYMERMAN.

The Zamosc PSA project includes 24 towns with records in Zamosc State
Archives and for all 24 towns we have now received files which takes us
into the early years of the 20th century!

Most of the filmed records for the 24 towns are also indexed, and we are
well on our way to complete what remains. I think I can promise that by
the end of 2005 the filmed years >from 1826 on will be indexed for all 24
towns.

As you all know the filmed years are indexed by volunteers and donated to
JRI-Poland for all to search. The first 30 years, 1826-55, of the filmed
Gorzkow records are indexed and have been live in the JRI-Poland database
since July 2004. The rest will follow later this year.

If you want to know more about JRI-Poland goals or to know if/or how many
times your family names appear in the PSA records, please contact me.

A paternal great-grandmother's death certificate (Rochester, NY 1935)
lists her place of birth as Melovitz, Austria. She was born in either
1860 (55 yo on 1915 NY State Census) or 1869 (>from death certificate).
The informant was a son-in-law.

As her son, my gf lists his place of birth as Lenitz (Ilintsy?), Kiev,
Russia on his 1922 Petition for Naturalization, and I have a birth
record >from Odessa listing him as a citizen of Shpola, I used the
JewishGen ShteltSeeker and selected Maliyevtsy as the most likely
candidate for the current town name.

Is "Melovitz" actually Maliyevtsy , or would another town be more
likely?
Milovice in the Czech Republic ?
[Probably used to be in Austria]

Yizkor Book Project for April 2005 #general

Joyce Field
 

Because of the Pesach holiday, April 2005 was a "short" month and our
production reflects that. One new book and 14 updated books went
online. All translations can be accessed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html and the current
additions have been flagged to make the search easier.

I would like to remind all new researchers that you can find whether
a yizkor book has been written about a particular town at the Yizkor
Book Database, http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/database.html. You
can search the Necrology Index at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/. Our index to this
database says the following:


"The JewishGen Yizkor Book Necrology Database indexes the names of
persons in the necrologies -- the lists of Holocaust martyrs --
published in the Yizkor Books appearing on the JewishGen Yizkor Book
Translation Project. This database is only an index of names; it
directs researchers back to the Yizkor Book itself, where more
complete information may be available.

This database allows the surnames to be searched via soundex.
Because most of these names were transliterated >from Hebrew and
Yiddish, the spellings of the surnames may not be as you are used to
seeing them in Latin-alphabet sources."

This database currently contains over 165,000 entries >from the
necrologies of 177 different yizkor books. Remember that not all
yizkor books have necrologies.

New book:

"With a rifle in my hand and Eretz Israel in my heart" by Dov Levin,
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/dovlevin1/dovlevin1.html.

Updated books:

-Belchatow, Poland, http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Belchatow/Belchatow.html
-Belchatow, Poland,
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Belchatow_ann/Belchatow_ann.html
-Bolekhov, Ukraine
-Brest, Belarus, volume 2
-Bukowina book
-Chelm, Poland
-Czestochowa, Poland,
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Czestochowa1/Czestochowa1.html
-Holocaust in Belarus
-Jewish Music in Poland between the World Wars
-Maramures Region
-Novogrudok, Belarus
-Nowy Sacz, Poland
-Radomsko, Poland
-Shumskoye, Ukraine

As always, we wish to thank all the donors of material and the
project coordinators for their donations of translations and their
precious time. Nothing can be accomplished without your interest in
the Yizkor Book Project. We are always interested in new material
and look forward to hearing >from researchers wanting to start a new
translation project.
