Pnovany synagogue #austria-czech

Dave you could try asking the Prague Jewish Museum which has a lot of
archives of former Jewish communities. They should also be able to tell you
which is the closest local and regional archive to consult. All the births
deaths and marriages records should be on the badatelna website created by
Dr Matusikova of the National Archives. See previous postings for more
details.
Good luck.

Re: Looking for Pepa EDELSTEIN #austria-czech

The Pages of Testimony which you mention show her address (Moriya 39,
Haifa) in Latin letters, so I am assuming that you tried that before posting.
The online phone book shows a Yaakov Edelstein at that address.

She is not listed in the Haifa burial sociaty database, so there is a chance
she is still alive.

ViewMate: Vital records translation from Russian sought #general

Mary Levenspiel <levenspiel@...>
 

In hopes of better luck this time, I am reposting two vital records which
were posted some years ago with no response. I need it to confirm a family
branch which has tantalized me for years!

I am seeking a loose, Polish or Russian translation, for ViewMate records
3781 and 4840.

I appreciate your help.

Re: FHL film number for NYC birth #general

Roger Lustig
 

Dear Irene:

Alas, the answer is: wait until 2019 or so. Birth records under 100
years old haven't been filmed (or at least, the films haven't been
released); and once they're released they'll have to be indexed, which
takes a little while.

number.
Thanks!

Re: Mocavo.com and FreeBMD (UK) Announce Partnership #general

Martha Forsyth
 

Mocavo.com and FreeBMD [UK] announced their partnership.. You can join
Mocavo.com for free by going to www.mocavo.com and access to the
FreeBMD records for England and Wales are available also for free.
snip....

However....while you can JOIN Mocavo.com for free, and even find out
whether they HAVE a record for you, you can't do more without "starting
your two-week free trial" after which it costs $59.95/year! Darn. This
sounded so promising....

Excellent sources - Riga house registers and Getto list #general

Ofer Biran <biranofer@...>
 

Following are 2 excellent sources for Riga's Jews, think would be a
great if they could be connected to JewishGen searach if agreement can
be reached:

Riga House Registers - you can download excel DB with about 20,000
names, good correlation data
http://www.iijg.org/Research/IijgResearch/RigaHouseRegisters.aspx

List of Riga ghetto imprisoners (source: house registers of Riga ghetto):

since more appropriate channels exist for that. JewishGen has no staff for
creating databases; that work is done by volunteers, meaning you. JewishGen's
role is to provide the infrastructure for making databases available to our users.

If you are interested in making a database available on JewishGen, please
read the information here:

You may also consult the relevant SIG group. In this case, that would be

You will find links on many SIG pages, including Latvia's, regarding
data projects being undertaken by SIG volunteers. Latvia SIG's Editor
may be able to put you in touch with others who are interested in helping
develop a new database.

ViewMate - Translation of Hebrew tombstone #general

John P. Hatch <hatch-j@...>
 

I'm requesting a translation of the Hebrew inscription on a tombstone. The
stone is that of Charles HARRIS born in Posen, Prussia in c. 1820, buried in
Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. I'm also curious about the date of death recorded in
English as: March 23, 5621. Is this the equivalent of the Spanglish we
speak in south Texas? It's on ViewMate at the following address:
