Information on Dvinsk/Daugavpipls, especially music education there #latvia

Lois Rosen
 

I am interested in finding out more about Dvinsk and its
population. Is anyone working on a site?
The Dvinsk ShtetlLink isn't active, as far as I can see.
In particular, I would like to find out about music
schools/violin teaching there >from about 1900 to 1914.
Our grandfather was a young violinist who emigrated to
the US to evade conscription in the Russian army.
He was subsequently drafted into the US army... to play
the violin!

Re: 1793 Czech Jewish Census Prague #austria-czech

Zimmer-Luedinghausen@...
 

Dear Gennners,

now volume 5 of the Czech Jewish Census is available as a
transcribed version in bookform, too. So only one more "Kraj" is
left and that is Prague.

Many of my Czech ancestors are >from Prague and so I am very
much interested in the last Volume covering Prague.

Last week I wrote to the Prague archives asking for this last volume
and today I received the answer that the Prague volume will be out
by the end of the year.

I think this is good news and worth letting you know.

Hungarian Industrial Directory 1893 #hungary

peter bakos <pgbakos@...>
 

Hi Fellow Siggers,

I am hoping someone can help with the Hungarian Industrial Directory of 1893
that is available on Radix.

After being unable to open the records (yes, I paid my money) and receiving
no help despite several requests, I went to the Erwin Szabo Library in
Budapest and consulted the original work, which, alas, is in deplorable
condition. Unfortunately it is organized in a way that makes it impossible
to search for names, only by trades, which of course I do not know.

I have found some of my Podvinecz, Podvinec, Podwinets, Podvinietz, etc.
relatives by luck and chance but not in anyother way.

Any clues how to ywork the Radix site, or have i been hopelessly ripped off?

Thanks

Peter Bakos

Who lived in the shtetls? #general

Ronald Gold
 

There have been very informed responses to the above question
already posted. To hear and see people who actually lived in the
shtetls as they existed right before the Holocaust there is a PBS video
titles " There Once was a Town." The video was used as an introductory
reference to Professor Eliach's book "There Once was a World" written
about the shtetl of Eishyshok, now called Eisiskes, about forty miles
southwest of Vilna. I was fortunate to be a part of the video as one
of relatives was a famous partisan who fought in the area. I would
encourage all those who have not visited the shtetls of their relatives
to take a tour as it will give you an understanding of how they lived
and why they left.

These are under birth records.

Commercial Road about 1910 #unitedkingdom

Petegolob@...
 

I have just examined my grandfather Morris GOLOB's naturalisation papers.
He first came to London >from Boguslav in the Ukraine in 1902. He left to go
back to Russia and then returned to London permanently in 1910, having married
in the interim. On his return he worked for his sister who had a
confectionery shop in Commercial Road, Stepney until 1912 when he opened his own shop in
Hanbury Street.

I want to identify and locate this sister (I have a suspicion that she and
her family eventually emigrated to South Africa). I have no idea of a name,
marital status or detailed address. Is there any way I can find a listing of
retail premises in Commercial Road about 100 years ago?

Exciting News for Bialystok Researchers #poland

Bialystoker
 

I would venture to say that all Bialystok researchers had at least one
relative immigrate to New York City. BIALYGen has been working for many
months to gain access to the Yahrzeit card collection (2,000 to 4,000
cards) of the Bialystoker Center in New York City. Gary Mokotoff has
arranged for BIALYGen to borrow this collection so that we can scan the
cards, create a CD of these images, and index this valuable genealogical
collection.

Why is this collection valuable? These Memorial Reference Cards include
the following data fields:

~ Name of Deceased: both in Latin letters and in Hebrew with Patronymic
information

~ Date of Departure: both the Gregorian date and the Hebrew date

~ Cemetery: most cards do NOT contain Cemetery information

~ Memorial Tablet number and column

~ Notifications: names, addresses and relationship of close relatives to
the deceased

For people or surnames that you will recognize as Bialystokers, these
cards are a goldmine of information. Some of these cards will show four
generations of names and addresses -- the deceased father and possibly
spouses, siblings, children, and grandchildren. These names and
addresses are listed as people to be notified annually of the Yahrzeit
date of their loved one. Also, many of the cards show the married names
of sisters, daughters, and granddaughters, information usually not found
on most genealogically relevant records.

Based on a sampling of the cards for surnames starting with A through H,
the deaths covered by these cards range >from the 1880s through to about
1994. Some of the people memorialized died in Europe, with some being
Holocaust Martyrs. Please keep in mind that not all the people
memorialized were Bialystokers and the cards do not give any indication
of these people's ancestral homes.

The project is explained in more detail with a link at the top of our
homepage at http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/bialygen/homepage.htm.
Here you will also find links to four examples of these cards. From
these samples, you can see the information that is possible to
acquire -- information probably not available anywhere else.

To accomplish our goal of creating a full index to the surnames, we need
your help. In order to get the project started, we need volunteers to
scan the cards. If you live in the US, have a computer with a CD drive
and a flat bed scanner, and the time to scan about 300 cards in the next
month, please contact me at bialystoker@.... The cards will be
sent to you by UPS.

If you cannot volunteer, please consider a contribution to the General
Fund by making a donation online through Jewish-Generosity at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/BialystokRrg.html. Your
contribution will help pay the cost of creating the CD and mailing the
cards.

BIALYGen thanks Gary Mokotoff for arranging the acquisition of the
Yahrzeit Cards >from the Bialystoker Center and the Bialystoker Center
and Barry Winston, President, Alys Kremer Grossman, Vice President, and
Daniel Muskin, Administrator for their help and support.
