historical context, please -- Poland just before WWI #general

Deborah Long <debbietheteacher@...>
 

Dear Colleagues,

I recently received this translation of a comment about a great-uncle:
"[He was] permanently dismissed >from the military unit by the verdict
dated 19^th October 1906 #1735. The verdict of the World Congress of the
regional patrol of the Tribunal of June 9th, 1908 year, No. 7011
sentenced to prison for three months. Accepted into military service in
1908. Enlisted in the militia on 10th November, 1910."

The comment can be found in a Polish census for the town of Jezow near
Lodz.

Could anyone please offer some context for what was happening at this
time in this part of Poland and why my relative would have been sent to
prison? And if he was "permanently dismissed," why did he enlist in the
militia later? Or is this perhaps an example of forced conscription?
What is the World Congress?

Thanks for any help.

What sources are available to prove that someone lived in the US for the

Specifically Texas and West Virginia.

There are several people finders online. Which is your favorite and
which should I avoid?

Where to start in DNA testing #dna

Kathy Lorber
 

I am new to DNA testing and would like to start in a logical and cost
effective way. Is it best to test myself(female) or my mother(who is 90)?
Would I start with an autosomal DNA test or do the mtDNA test? Should I
have my brother do the Y-DNA or the autosomal test(my father is deceased)?
Also, on my husband's side should I start with my husband or my son, and
should they do autosomal or Y-DNA testing?

Is it best to begin with FTDNA or start with Ancestry autosomal testing? I
realize the best answer may be all of the above, but I am trying to get a
start in DNA research in a logical manner. If anyone has developed a step
approach to DNA testing I would like to hear about it. Any suggestions
would be most appreciated.

Yizkor Book Project, September 2016 #ciechanow #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

My monthly Yizkor Book report to you is in perfect timing to wish you all a
Shana Tova Umetuka or, in other words, a Sweet New Year!

This month I am extremely proud to announce the completion of two books. The
first is the Radzyn Podlaski, Poland Yizkor book which was translated by
Nachman, Temy and Yaakov Goldwasser and includes some additional
translations kindly donated through the auspices of Monica Westrick. The
completion of this book is a wonderful achievement and is the result of many
years of labor of love. The second book is the Radyvyliv, Ukraine Yizkor
book which was coordinated by Ron Doctor and Ellen Garshick. Ellen
coordinated the translation prepared by a dedicated band of translators and
all those involved in this project are definitely deserving of our grateful
appreciation for this successful end result.

Another contribution to the Yizkor Book Project over this past month was an
article kindly donated to us by Myrna Brodsky Siegel in which she describes
how she became involved in the translation of the Maychet (Molchadz) Yizkor
book. This book is yet another that has been completely translated and also
one that has been published by the Yizkor Books in Print Project. The
success of this project only came about because of Myrna's unending
dedication to seeing it through. For those of you involved in the
coordination or translation of a Yizkor book, this is a worthwhile read and
may be found at our Yizkor Book Insights page:
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybinsights.html

And in regards to the Yizkor Books in Print Project, this past month it
published, can you believe it, its 50th book: "Memorial Book of Goniadz
Poland". I have run out of superlatives to thank Joel Alpert and his team
and just look forward to seeing the next 50 books go to print. Details of
where this book and the other 49 books now available can be seen at
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html

On a much sadder note, we learnt this week about the untimely passing of Ada
Holtzman z"l whose name you may be familiar with because it does widely
throughout the Yizkor Book Project. Over the years, Ada contributed numerous
translations and was ever willing to assist where she could in helping out
in the YB Project. She was above all, a true "mensch", and my saying that
she will be sorely missed is definitely an understatement.

And now for all the changes and additions that were carried out in the
Yizkor Book Project over September.

We have added in three new books:

- Khomsk, Belarus (Scroll of Khomsk)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Khomsk/Khomsk.html

Jewish community buildings in 1850 Baranow Sandomierski #galicia

Russ Maurer
 

Recently, Jay Osborn posted about publication of the 1850 cadastral
map of Baranow Sandomierski on the Gesher Galicia website, and also
mentioned that specific properties could be located by
cross-referencing the contemporaneous property records that I indexed.
In fact, it is only by reference to the property records that the Jewish
community buildings can be identified, since they not marked in any
special way on this particular map. As it happens, the Jewish community
buildings are clustered just north of the main town square. As numbered
on the map, building 296 is the synagogue. Nearby are the mikveh/ritual
bath (293), Jewish hospital (294), and Jewish School (295). Not
surprisingly, most of the nearby private properties had Jewish owners:
291 - Moijses TOPPER; 292 - Joachim KATZ; 289 - Juda BIRNBAUM;
287 - Chiel SEIDEN; 288 - Jakob HERSCH; 24 - Abraham NADEL;
297 - Moijses SCHNALL. Jewish-owned properties were located in other
areas of the town as well. All of the above speaks to the vibrant Jewish
life that must have existed in this village.

Re: FamilySearch Adds Vienna Vital Records Films #general

The birth, marriage and death records of the Jewish community of Vienna have
been available >from the LDS library on microfilm since 1997. As indicated
these records are also available on line on the Familysearch website. The
only difference is that the registers on the website stop at the year 1911,
while the microfilms continue to 1938.

More on Scotlands People New Website #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Cecilia Nyleve responded to my posting about the new Scotlands People
website and the policy of "Images of statutory birth records less than 100
years old, marriages less than 75 years old, deaths less than 50 years old
and of divorces, civil partnerships and dissolutions of a civil partnership
are not available to view online. This is in accordance with the National
Records of Scotland's policy on protecting the privacy of individuals."
This pertains to the records and the original registers as noted on the
site. What appears online is a transcribed typed list with up to 25 names
per page with the following information: surname, forename, gender year (
birth, marriage, death), reference number and RD name. You can sort by
surname, forename, sex and RD. The registers are not the actual records.
One has to purchase the actual record. The website has a "help and guidance"
area with free guides for those who have questions. The website is:
https://scotlandspeople.gov.uk/. You must register with email address and
password to be ab le to search.
