Warsaw property restitution - new resource #warsaw #poland

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

Warsaw Researchers,

There is a new resource to help the former owners of thousands of
Warsaw properties, or their heirs, seek restitution. For details,
please see the World Jewish Restitution Organization's website at
http://wjro.org.il/our-work/property-restitution-in-warsaw. This is
time sensitive. According to a new Polish law, there will be a
certain period of just six months for claimants to come forward.

These properties were the subject of claims filed after 1945. The
City of Warsaw has not released the original claimants' names, only
the properties' addresses, so I used Warsaw Homeowners Directories
from 1939/1940 and 1930 to identify former owners (who might or might
not be the claimants or their relatives). I also provided a guide for
further online research (e.g., using other directories, maps) at
http://wjro.org.il/cms/assets/uploads/2016/12/LoganGuide-v3.pdf, which
might be useful in supporting claims. You might also find supporting
information in the government publication Monitor Polski, which
announced many post-War inheritance proceedings. To search Monitor
Polski by a homeowners's surname or a property's mortgage number, go
to http://www.monitorpolski.gov.pl/Wyszukiwanie.aspx. At the bottom
of that page, enter a search term next to "Tre=C5=9B=C4=87" (e.g., Klajtman=
or
3190) and then press the "Szukaj" button on the right to search. Some
of this material has been indexed by http://warszawa.getto.pl/, but I
do not know how much.

Please note that I am unable to give advice about the claims process,
but, if you find a match using WJRO's database and have questions
about further directory-based research, please feel free to contact me
privately.

(Poland) Property Claims Restoration for City of Warsaw -Time Limitation Due to New Legislation #poland

Jan Meisels Allen
 

On 17 September 2016 a new law took effect in Poland that results in
limiting the rights of claimants to those who have filed under the
Warsaw Decree. The new law terminates many private property claims
in the City of Warsaw after 1945 (Warsaw Law) - unless the heirs
come forward to reactivate the claim. Please note the new law does
NOT permit for new claims to be filed, but rather only permits claims
already filed with the City of Warsaw under the Warsaw Decree.

The original Decree issued in 1945 transferred ownership of all
properties within the prewar boundaries of Warsaw back to the city
of Warsaw. This only pertains to the City of Warsaw as prescribed
in the Warsaw Decree and no other parts of Poland.

Claimants must be able to prove their rights to the property or they
will lose their rights to the property and the property will be
transferred to the state treasury or the City of Warsaw. When Poland
was under the Communist regime, the regime seized much of the pre-war
property of all Poles, and therefore the claims languished for decades.

The law permits only 6 months beginning >from the date of publication
on the new law and it became effective in mid-September time is of
the essence.

The World Jewish Restitution Organization (WJRO) has created a webpage
with a searchable database to help you identify whether you or your
relative may have filed a claim under the Warsaw law. For background
information on the new Warsaw property legislation see:
http://tinyurl.com/zw39znw

Original url:
http://wjro.org.il/cms/assets/uploads/2016/11/Backgrounder-
Warsawlaw29-11-v5PDF.pdf

What WJRO did was match the street addresses which the City of Warsaw
published -- see below-- with the property owners found in the 1939/1940
Warsaw Homeowners Directory. Go to: http://warsawproperty.org/ after
reading the aforementioned website on WJRO. Thank you to Jewish
genealogist, Logan Kleinwaks (genealogyindexer.org) for his assistance
in digitizing and using the Polish directories and other aids to help
WJRO accomplish this feat.

Not all homes listed are necessarily those previously owned by Jews.
However, there was a large Jewish population in pre-war Warsaw.

In June 2016 the City of Warsaw published over 2600 street addresses
with open claims without publishing the names of the claimants or
owners. See: http://tinyurl.com/hxhewqt

Hi, all. I'm hoping to find out about birth/marriage/death records
for Kamienczyk, Poland. It's not listed as a town in JRI-Poland's
database (though a relatively small number of results come up if you
query just for the town--not records filed in the town but otherwise
referred to in records >from other cities), and I've not been able to
find information on JewishGen. Any leads? Thanks!

(Poland) Property Claims Restoration for City of Warsaw -Time Limitation Due to New Legislation #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

On 17 September 2016 a new law took effect in Poland that results in
limiting the rights of claimants to those who have filed under the Warsaw
Decree. The new law terminates many private property claims in the City of
Warsaw after 1945 (Warsaw Law) -unless the heirs come forward to reactivate
the claim. Please note the new law does *not* permit for new claims to be
filed, but rather only permits claims already filed with the City of Warsaw
under the Warsaw Decree. The original Decree issued in 1945 transferred
ownership of all properties within the prewar boundaries of Warsaw back to
the city of Warsaw. This only pertains to the City of Warsaw as prescribed
in the Warsaw Decree and no other parts of Poland.

Claimants must be able to prove their rights to the property or they will
lose their rights to the property and the property will be transferred to
the state treasury or the City of Warsaw. When Poland was under the
Communist regime, the regime seized much of the pre-war property of all
Poles, and therefore the claims languished for decades. The law permits
only 6 months beginning >from the date of publication on the new law and it
became effective in mid-September time is of the essence.

The World Jewish Restitution Organization (WJRO) has created a webpage with
a searchable database to help you identify whether you or your relative may
have filed a claim under the Warsaw law. For background information on the
new Warsaw property legislation see: http://tinyurl.com/zw39znw

What WJRO did was match the street addresses which the City of Warsaw
published -see below-- with the property owners found in the 1939/1940
Warsaw Homeowners Directory Go to: http://warsawproperty.org/ after reading
the aforementioned website on WJRO. Thank you to Jewish genealogist, Logan
Kleinwaks (genealogyindexer.org) for his assistance in digitizing and using
the Polish directories and other aides to help WJRO accomplish this feat.

Not all homes listed are necessarily those previously owned by Jews.
However, there was a large Jewish population in pre-war Warsaw.

In June 2016 the City of Warsaw published over 2600 street addresses with
open claims without publishing the names of the claimants or owners. See:

Connecting the SINGERs (ZYNGERs) #general

David Ziants
 

The name of my great-grandmother through my maternal grandfather was
Rebecca (Rifka) GEWELBA nee SINGER (1873-1951) married to my
great-grandfather Solomon or Shlomo.

In my Geni tree, I have written down her as born in the Warsaw area
(Warszawa, Masovian Voivodeship) .

According to her gravestone, her father was called Yisrael (Israel).

I am trying to identify him as the same Izrael ZYNGER that appears on
JRI - Gora Kalwaria Births, Marriages, Deaths 1826-59

Izrael was born there 12th Jan 1831 (or maybe 1st Dec 1831 - I still
need to clarify whether British or USA convention used on that site).

His father: Boruch; Age: 32
Hi mother: Ryfka; Age: 32

Microfilm: 723681

As can be seen, it fits that granddaughter Rifka named after
grandmother, and the generation profiles are similar, but I feel I
need more evidence to say that these are the same people.

For example, if I could find a record with Izrael's children and dates
of birth, etc.

Has anyone got any pointers?

"Illegal" Residence in Pale of Settlement #general

David Goldman
 

Hello, Jewishgenners. I just received some documents >from the Chernihiv
(Chernigov) archive dated 1906 regarding residence in the town of Surazh.

I think I figured out something rather interesting. The document is
entitled:

"A List of Jews Who Are Illegal Residents in the Countryside of the Surazh
Uyezd as of Aug. 1, 1906"
The village in the Surazh Uyezd for all the Jews on the list is Ushcherpe.
As far as I can tell this area was well within the permitted Pale of
Settlement since the division of Poland.

Similar undated documents and one for the year 1882 (where my relatives are
not listed) does not use the term "illegal", but simply residents of Surazh
uyezd.

The documents are forms with columns for assorted information. Everything
appears to be lawful and proper like in a census.
The only thing I can think of for 1906 is that there was some new rule that
people had to register, but all these people failed to do it on time, so the
office simply described it as "illegal residence" although the Jews had been
living there for decades.

Thanks,
David Goldman

It seems that I didn't ask my question correctly. Then I'm posting it
again, with my apologies.

I am looking for possible still alive members of Bernard
NARWER'family, who was born in Paris on 14 November 1927 and deported
on 15 May 1944 >from France to the Baltic States. His father Samuel was
born in Vilno (Lithuania) on 6 September 1897 and was deported from
France too, in 1943.

Any information would be welcome.
Please send any contact information privately.

New FTDNA Geographic Group #dna

Peter Dreifuss
 

My name is Pete Dreifuss and whereas I am not new to genealogy or
genetic genealogy, but I am a new member of the group. One of my
interests include the Jews of the Baden plain lying between the Rhine
River and the Black Forest in the former Grand Duchy of Baden (now
part of Baden-Wuerttemberg). Many of the Jews moved to the small
villages in the area (including Altdorf, Schmieheim, Rust, Ettenheim,
Friesenheim, Kippenheim, Lahr, Nonnenweiler, Orschweier, Rust and
Kenzingen) in the 18th century, up to a hundred years before most Jews
adopted surnames.
To this end, I recently formed a project in FTDA (Upper Rhine Jewish
Origins) which among other goals, aims to explore geographic origins
of them prior to this time. We also can seek genetic ties between
members based on these common origins. Please consider joining us if
you know or believe that your ancestors did live in the area.
As a new project administrator, I may need to further develop ideas
that haven’t yet surfaced. I do not require an authorization to join,
but I would like a brief email regarding your connection to the area
(name of ancestor(s), maternal or paternal connections, time period.
If you have suggestions or ideas please let me know.
