Hi,

Zablotow is currently known as Zabolotiv, Western Ukraine at 4828 2517. This
Jewish community was located within Sniatyn district in Stanislawow
Province.

"Brezovica" - most probably Berezhnitsa (ex Bereznica) located at 4817 2522,
some 15 miles distance >from Zabolotiv.

Hi,
So in May I went to visit Vienna and had the opportunity to visit the Jewish
Archives. While there I found out about two additional towns that I am
curious about.

1. Brezovica (spelling?) - Apparently my maternal grandfather's paternal
grandfather Michael Rothstein was >from that town however I can't seem to
find anything about it on any database. The only instance I have found is
on Wikipedia it lists it as a town in Kosovo.
So out of curiosity is anyone looking for Rothstein's >from that town as
well as Tarnopol. Is there some connection between the two towns?
Does it have a different name now?

2. Zablotow (spelling?) - This one might be a little easier mostly I was
just wondering if anyone was reasearching Tillinger's >from this area that
would have moved to Stanislawow/Ivano-Frankivsk. JGFF doesn't have anyone
listed for this name/town combination so I figured I'd ask. Apparently my
2nd great grandfather Aron Moshe Tillinger was >from this town and not from
Stanislawow where his children were born.
Aron supposedly had either 15 brothers or 15 uncles and the JRI-Poland
database doesn't give me much to go on.

Thanks in advance, and please feel free to respond privately.
-Steve Jaron

Researching:
KROCHMAL - Tarnopol (Possibly other towns if I can ever prove my connection
to Nachman Krochmal...) GOLDBRUM - Tarnopol ROTHSTEIN - Brezovica, Tarnopol,
Vienna, New York ZUCKER - Tarnopol TILLINGER - Zablotow, Stanislawow, Vienna
WOLF/WAX/MOSSLER/MESSLER - Kolomyya, Stanislawow Other surnames in the
following countries/towns available upon request
- Netherlands, Duisburg Germany

Hi,

it seems to me that best matches for your town-names are:

1. Velika Berezovica (Polish: Berezowica Wielka), a very small town one
mile south of Ternopil (Polish: Tarnopol), almost its suburb

2. Zabolotiv (Polish: Zablotow), JG Locality Page ->

Resource Center at The 31st IAJGS International Conference #lodz #poland

31st IAJGS Conference <dc2011_conference@...>
 

Don't Pass Up the Resource Center at The Conference!

This year’s Resource Center is a real benefit to researchers, and definitely
should not be overlooked. It's a valuable place to spend time studying maps
for ancestral towns, reviewing computerized surname indexes, and searching
through a wide variety of databases to fill in gaps in your research. It's a
"problem worth having" because it's virtually guaranteed to compete with
your equally strong desire to attend Conference sessions, network, see
Judaic films, visit vendors, etc. (You also will be able to avoid going
outside into the August heat of Washington by conducting your research in
the comfort of the Grand Hyatt, and still be close to other Conference
features you want to catch!)

The Resource Center also will be a lively, "happening" place to be because
virtually EVERY Conference attendee will visit the Resource Center! How can
you pass that up? (And when you do come by, we suggest you bring a listing
of your "research goals," the specific surnames, towns, or dates you’re
researching so that you can spend your time more wisely.)

Where’s what this year's Resource Center consists of:
- Carefully selected reference materials, specialized archival
materials, and maps (laminated and available on long tables) >from the
hosting organization, the Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington
(JGSGW)’s extensive library collection;
- 5 PC computers dedicated to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum
(USHMM) Central Names Index (CNI). That index will help inform attendees'
Holocaust-era research and be a major aid when conducting research at the
Museum itself; and
- 35 additional PCs loaded with links to websites usually
accessible only through subscription or membership.
- Translation Services located in an adjacent room, with a free
20-minute appointment for conference attendees who sign up at the
Conference, its schedule to be posted.

The Resource Center will be open during these days and hours:
Sunday, August 14, >from 1 p.m. - 5 p.m.
Monday, August 15, >from 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Tuesday, August 16, >from 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Wednesday, August 17, >from 7:30 a.m.- 9 p.m.
Thursday, August 18, >from 7:30 a.m.– 5:30 p.m.
Friday, August 19, >from 7:30 a.m. – 11 a.m.

We'll have a large number of links available to both free and subscription
(free at the Conference) genealogy-related websites. These will be on the
Resource Center's 35 computers, and be available for all SIX DAYS of
the Conference.

Books and archival materials can be checked out for use by turning in a
government-issued picture ID to be left with Resource Center staff. This
ensures that materials are returned. No one will be permitted to leave the

Conference registration rates are very flexible and include full week or

Resource Center at The 31st IAJGS International Conference #latvia

31st IAJGS Conference <dc2011_conference@...>
 

Don't Pass Up the Resource Center at The Conference!

This year’s Resource Center is a real benefit to researchers, and definitely
should not be overlooked. It's a valuable place to spend time studying maps
for ancestral towns, reviewing computerized surname indexes, and searching
through a wide variety of databases to fill in gaps in your research. It's a
"problem worth having" because it's virtually guaranteed to compete with
your equally strong desire to attend Conference sessions, network, see
Judaic films, visit vendors, etc. (You also will be able to avoid going
outside into the August heat of Washington by conducting your research in
the comfort of the Grand Hyatt, and still be close to other Conference
features you want to catch!)

The Resource Center also will be a lively, "happening" place to be because
virtually EVERY Conference attendee will visit the Resource Center! How can
you pass that up? (And when you do come by, we suggest you bring a listing
of your "research goals," the specific surnames, towns, or dates you’re
researching so that you can spend your time more wisely.)

Where’s what this year's Resource Center consists of:
- Carefully selected reference materials, specialized archival
materials, and maps (laminated and available on long tables) >from the
hosting organization, the Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington
(JGSGW)’s extensive library collection;
- 5 PC computers dedicated to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum
(USHMM) Central Names Index (CNI). That index will help inform attendees'
Holocaust-era research and be a major aid when conducting research at the
Museum itself; and
- 35 additional PCs loaded with links to websites usually
accessible only through subscription or membership.
- Translation Services located in an adjacent room, with a free
20-minute appointment for conference attendees who sign up at the
Conference, its schedule to be posted.

The Resource Center will be open during these days and hours:
Sunday, August 14, >from 1 p.m. - 5 p.m.
Monday, August 15, >from 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Tuesday, August 16, >from 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Wednesday, August 17, >from 7:30 a.m.- 9 p.m.
Thursday, August 18, >from 7:30 a.m.– 5:30 p.m.
Friday, August 19, >from 7:30 a.m. – 11 a.m.

We'll have a large number of links available to both free and subscription
(free at the Conference) genealogy-related websites. These will be on the
Resource Center's 35 computers, and be available for all SIX DAYS of
the Conference.

PARNES Family of Dubno/Vilna/Lvov #galicia

Michael Waas
 

Hi SIG,

I am currently reviewing material on the PARNES family of
Dubno/Vilna/Lvov. I have reviewed both direct material such as the
forward written by R' Zalman MARGOLIT in Megilah Emukot, by
R' Natan Neta SPIRA, as well as encyclopedic books like Ir Vilna and
Dubno Rabbati. I am at a crossroads and perhaps some of you may
be able to help me.

I have come across three separate paternal line Yichusim of the
family. In general, they all end at the brothers R' Haim Nachman
PARNES of Vilna and R' Itzhak Natan Neta PARNES of Lvov. They are
as follows:

a) Their father is Moshe Peretz PARNES. His father is Natan Neta in
Lvov, and they are descendant >from R' Natan Neta SPIRA.

b) Their father is Moshe Peretz PARNES. His father is Menachem
Menush PARNES. His father is Avigdor PARNES. His father is David
PARNES. His father is Moshe PARNES. His father is Abraham PARNES.

c) B is the same up until the father of David PARNES. Instead, David
is the son of Abraham PARNES. His father is Zev Vulf, (I believe son
or grandson of the second Maharashal of Lublin) and also a
descendant of the Taz.

Furthermore, I am looking into the likelihood that R' Itzhak Natan
Neta PARNES is the progenitor of my great-grandmother's family,
owing to similar family names that crop up between the PARNES of
Dubno/Vilna/Lvov and my family, who were apparently of some
importance as my great-great-great grandfather Moshe Yaacov
PARNES ran a government store in the area of Zloczow in Bialy
Kamien. If anyone knows anything about the descendants of
R' Itzhak Natan Neta PARNES it would be most appreciated.

Which embassy Poland or Ukraine to visit in DC? #galicia

Dalya Dektor
 

I am planning a trip next summer to ancestral towns which today
are in the Ukraine. Balta was always in the Ukraine, but Berzhany,
Tarnipol, Ivano-Frankivsk were in Poland (Galicia) and now are in
the Ukraine.

I am trying to determine which embassy to visit - I don't want to
go to both, not enough time in the week at the conference to do
everything.

I did sign up for Ukrainian embassy, but am know wondering if I
would get more information if I go to the Polish embassy.
Information regarding archives, travel tips etc.

Where do you think I would be better off spending my time?

As you can see, this year's Resource Center is abundantly filled
with versatile research tools. Please come by the Resource
Center: you'll thank yourself!

Books and archival materials can be checked out for use by
turning in a government-issued picture ID to be left with
Resource Center staff. This ensures that materials are returned.
No one will be permitted to leave the room with library materials.

But you do have to be a Conference registrant to use the maps,
books, archival materials, and computerized databases there.
With that in mind, Conference registration rates are very
flexible and include full week or single day registration, as well
as discount rates for spouses/companions, college and high
school students. You also can arrange for Grand Hyatt
Washington hotel lodging through the Conference website.

For further information, please contact info@dc2011.org. The
Conference website is www.dc2011.org.

See you in August!
