Announcing the beta-site of the Montefiore Censuses for 1839, 1855 and Alexandria 1840 #general

rosef@...
 

The Israel Genealogical Society is proud to announce the launching of
the online Beta website of the 19th Century Montefiore Censuses of the
Jewish Population of Eretz Israel, Alexandria, Beirut and Sidon (Saida).
The details recorded include personal and family particulars, occupations
and countries of origin, The censuses are unusually comprehensive as it is
estimated that fewer than 1% of the Jewish inhabitants of Eretz Israel
refused to participate because of religious scruples. Some others may not be
included for personal or political reasons

The manuscripts belong to the Montefiore Endowment and are held in its
library in London, where they can be seen by appointment. They are written
in Hebrew, in a variety of scripts. Many of the pages are difficult to read
and, lacking any index, the tracing of individuals is time-consuming.

Beginning in 2008, the Israel Genealogical Society, under the auspices of
the Montefiore Endowment, has been working on transcribing the censuses
into a modern Hebrew font, transliterate the names, and translate the data
into English. This immense labour is being undertaken by teams of dedicated
volunteers; and the censuses are now in the process of being published
on-line for the first time, together with a search engine in Hebrew and in
English to facilitate the finding of individual names and families.
Extended families are linked together, and there is a link to the digitized
manuscript page.

In all, there are 5 censuses of Eretz Israel (including Beirut and Sidon),
and one of Alexandria. At present, the census of 1839, 1840 (Alexandria)
and 1855 are on line at http://www.montefioreendowment.org.uk/census/.
The census of 1849 rowill follow in the next few months.

New search feature for NFP Death Notices #austria-czech

E. Randol Schoenberg
 

A few weeks ago, I announced that Peter Rohel's database of 10,000 pages
of death notices >from the Neue Freie Presse in Vienna was available at
http://www.hugogold.com/peter/Obituaries The index at that page lists
all of the notices with the name of the file including the surnames and
most of the given names listed in the death notices on that page.

Logan Kleinwaks has now created a search function for the database at
his website http://genealogyindexer.org/
Thanks to Logan, it is now possible to do a boolean search of the titles
of the files. See the instructions at
http://genealogyindexer.org/advanced
You can also do a soundex search. And it is possible to limit results
to just the NFP database by appending {h21} to your search.

Thus, even a search for a common name like "David Kohn" is now possible
by searching

David Kohn {h21] -- or more restrictive "David Kohn" {h21}

Give it a try!

I and a few others have been busy on geni.com using Peter Rohel's
database to add hundreds and hundreds of these death notices to the
tree, tying together families, and slowly but surely creating a very
comprehensive tree covering most of the well-known Austrian-Czech Jewish
families who came to Vienna. I encourage you to explore at geni.com as
well. Using the death notices, it is possible to link most everyone up
to the big tree.

Storage of artifacts from Jewish Lodz? #poland #lodz

Debbie Long <d_long@...>
 

Dear Colleagues,

I have a bizarre question: I have a fantasy that somewhere in the attic
of my mother's home at Pomorska 6 in Lodz or in her apartment at
Sulzfeder Strasse 4 in the Lodz Ghetto, there could be a box or suitcase
of family photos and other artifacts. I know, I know-- the probability
of such a treasure remaining in those apartments or stored in some Lodz
storage facility for 60+ years is slim-to-none.

But who would know if belongings found after the war in a Lodz building
were stored? a property manager in Lodz? a city bureaucrat? To whom
in Lodz should I write?

Thanks for entertaining this strange question.

Re: Rzeszow Archives #poland

Mark Halpern <willie46@...>
 

Dear Peggy and other Rzeszow Area Researchers:

I do not have any direct experience ordering records >from Rzeszow, but when
I coordinated the JRI-Poland ordering process prior to November 2006, the
Rzeszow Archives was quite responsive. However, I do not recall any staff
that spoke English. It would definitely be helpful to send your inquiry in
Polish. As I mentioned in response to a recent posting, Google Translate
does an acceptable job of translating both Polish to English and English to
Polish. I suggest you write to them in English and provide a Google Polish
translation. Also, test the translation by translating the Polish back to
English until you are satisfied.

Rzeszow Archive has a website at http://www.rzeszow.ap.gov.pl/index1.php
There is no English version, but click on "kontakt." This provides a fax
number as well as a list of email addresses. You should direct your next
inquiry to the emails for "Dyrekcja," "Sekretariat," and "Osrodek Badania
Historii Zydow." The latter is the Jewish History Research Center, a
resource unique to the Rzeszow Archive.

Also, the summer months (especially August) are very slow in Poland
as many workers are on holiday and some Archive reading rooms and other
departments are closed.

Mark Halpern

----- Original Message -----
Does anyone have any experience ordering >from the Rzeszow archives?

I followed the instructions and have not heard >from them in over thirty
days. Previously, I have successfully ordered records >from a different
archive.

I wonder if it would help to have my request translated to Polish, whether
requesting 19 records was a problem, or perhaps they just are not
responsive.

I know the JRI-Poland instructions has another e-mail to try if you
haven't
heard back in thirty days, but thought I would ask all of you first.

Thanks for your help!

WW1 Uniform #unitedkingdom

Hi Monica

A colleague thinks that it's probably Royal Artillery as the cap badge
appears to be a cannon. The bandolier would imply Army Service Corps,
Cavalry or Royal Artillery.

He also suggests that you ask the Great War Forum at
http://1914-1918.invisionzone.com/forums/

Hope that helps.

Jacob Jacobson Collection Announcement #germany

Judith Elam
 

The Leo Baeck Institute Archives would like to let the German-Jewish
genealogical community know that we are currently digitizing the Jacob
Jacobson Collection.

This project should be completed and the collection available for
viewing by December of this year.

The material contained in the collection can be found via the online
finding aid, located here:

http://digital.cjh.org/R/?func=dbin-jump-full&object_id=147427&local_base=GEN01

When the project is completed, viewers will be able to go to this finding
aid to see the original material. Each folder will have a hyperlink
connecting the user directly to the material that folder encompasses.

We expect this digitized version of the Jacob Jacobson Collection will be a
great aid to many researchers as a free public resource available via the
worldwide web.

Sincerely, Michael Simonson, Archivist Leo Baeck Institute

Romania-Moldova Shtetlinks #romania

Robert Zavos
 

Dear ROM_SIG members,

It is great to hear about new archive projects for Romania and
Moldova.One area that also needs help is the contribution of material
to ShtetLinks websites. I started websites for Botosani, Iasi, and
Bucecea to help coordinate research as well as remembering my
families' roots.
I include news briefs, maps, photos, links, trip reports, references,
new projects and detailed summaries of available research data.

ShtetLink coordinators often need more input and it will cost nothing
but a little time. The Romanian research environment has recently
changed significantly for the better. We cannot always count on email
or conferences for receiving and disemminating new information.
encourage all Romania/Moldova researchers to review the growing list
of interesting Romania-Moldova Shtetlinks at
www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Romania.html and help our community grow
with your input.
