(Australia) National Library of Australia Launches Australian Web Archive #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The National Library of Australia recently launched the Australia Web
Archive (AWA), one of the largest online archives in the world. The archive
contains 600 terabytes of data across 9 billion records. It contains
thousands of .au domain web pages >from 1996-to the present. The concept is
similar to the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine but is reported to have
more functionality and it is fully text-searchable. One does not need to know the
url, instead they find content by using a Google-like built in-house search.

The collection of webpages began in 1996, which over time included all
government websites.

The AWA is accessible via Trove, (https://trove.nla.gov.au/) which is
Australia's National Library online resource for newspapers, books, images,
archives etc.

Lodz City Hall #general

Moishe Miller
 

Dear Group,
Has anyone successfully contacted the Lodz City Hall for pictures of
birth records less then 100 years old? What address and what language was used?

My aunt, a survivor of the Lodz Ghetto, was born in Lodz on March 11,
1923. The family would like to get an image of her birth record, the
actual written record. They do not need a certified copy. The family
wants to know if the time of birth was recorded, so that they can know
if her Jewish birthdate is the 23rd of Adar or the 24th of Adar.

research question #austria-czech

Helen Epstein
 

-- I am currently working on editing my mother's memoir ROUNDTRIP
which goes >from Prague t Terezin to Birkenau to Hamburg to Belsen and
back to Prague between 1939-1945. She mentions several people who are
unknown to me and I wondered if some of you could help out either with
your own family trees or with access to the Terezin transport lists.
I'm interested in my mother's "AUNT HELLA," no last name, born in the
late 1870s or early 1880s, probably >from Kolin or near Kolin, who was
deported to Terezin and then t Auschwitz where she was killed. She
could be a relative of the Sachsel family of Kolin since my mother
writes that she was close to Josefa Sachsel, my grandmother.

Thanks for any help you can give me on this and please answer
off-line. I miss Jiri Fiedler.....

Prime Minister of Moldova Pavel Philip demanded a plan to restore the Jewish cemetery in Kishinev! #general

Yefim Kogan
 

Dear researchers,

I want you to know the situation at the Jewish Cemetery in Kishinev,
Bessarabia/Moldova.

You remember the story that the Prime Minister of Moldova "...demanded a plan to
restore the Jewish cemetery in Kishinev", and I should tell you that there are
good news, but also very bad news >from that cemetery:

The cemetery was cleaned up in the fall of 2018, and you can see >from a photo how
large is the cemetery, and as people on the ground are saying, it was cleaned up.

Aerial view:
www.jewishgen.org/bessarabia/files/cemetery/Kishinev/Damage2019/KishinevJewishCemeteryFeb19-2019.jpg

The bad news are that a number of tombstones were damaged!!!

Now, I am getting information that there will be no construction of a new building
at the cemetery (museum or so), but there is going to be build a memorial probably
to the victims of the Holocaust...

The March 2019 Issue of the "Galitzianer" #galicia

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

As the new editor of Gesher Galicia's quarterly research journal, the
"Galitzianer," I am delighted to announce the release of the March
2019 issue of the journal.

This issue covers a wide range of towns, topics and time periods--as
well as answers to some interesting questions, like why did the
funeral procession for a renowned physician and academic include
many of Krakow's "ladies of the night"? Why was a surgeon who
served honorably for decades in the Austro-Hungarian army denied
the bulk of his pension? How did the development of the railway
system make it possible for Galician Jews to emigrate--and also
difficult for them not to? In addition to answering these and other
questions, this issue also contains important information for research
on eastern Galician records >from the Ukrainian archives, a discussion
of tombstone inscriptions >from the Jewish cemetery in Kalush, a
family history of a distinguished line of academics and physicians,
two different perspectives on Galician emigration, and a synopsis of
detailed diary entries >from behind the front lines during World War I.

The articles comprising the March issue are:
- "Research Corner: Vital Records of Eastern Galicia" by Tony Kahane
- "A Journey through Generations: The Rosner Family Story" by Anna
M. Rosner, PhD
- ">from Krakow to Manchester: Jewish Migration in the
Mid-Nineteenth Century" by Geoffrey M. Weisgard
- "An Immigration Chain: >from Rohatyn to the US" by Alexander Feller
- "House of Eternity: The Jewish Cemetery in Kalush" by Deborah Schultz
- "Map Corner: Discovering Old Jewish Cemeteries in Galicia" by Jay Osborn
- "The War and Beyond: Bernhard Bardach's Diaries" by Peter C.
Appelbaum and Helmut Konrad

The "Galitzianer" is a membership benefit of Gesher Galicia, though
anyone is invited to submit articles on Galicia-related themes. For
more details on our submissions policy, please visit
www.geshergalicia.org/the-galitzianer/#submissions. For
