Online Polish Records/Research #general

Dear JewishGen members:

I am seeking help regarding accessing digital copies of Polish vital
records online. Specifically, I am trying to locate documents on the
Mertryi website using the index information I obtained on JRI-Poland
(i.e., year, location, names, and Akta number).

Two examples are 1) 1874 birth record of my gggm Chaje Fradel
KON>KOHN; and 2) the 1873 marriage record of my ggggp Szlama>Solomon
KON>KOHN and Estera KALISKA. #1 is listed as Akta 66 (Lask, Piotrkow)
and #2 is listed as Akta 5 (Pabianece).

Here is the potentially corresponding document I located -

( MOD: http://tinyurl.com/nhvant4 )

I am unsure if I located the correct documents and would be grateful
for some direction or input >from fellow researchers.

Thank you very much.

Beginning of modern vital registers in modern Hessen [Hessen historical geography] #germany

Gerhard Buck <buckidstein@...>
 

Nearly a month ago, there was an exchange of e-mails about the beginning
of the modern Standesamtsregister (vital registers) in the territories
that now form the Federal State of Hessen. I asked the new archive
(Personenstandsarchiv in Neustadt near Marburg), that collects,
digitizes and publishes the registers, for help.

They told me that in the former state of Hessen-Darmstadt these books
start on January 1, 1876 and in the former Prussian district of
Hessen-Kassel on October 1, 1874. >from my own work I know that in
Nassau, the second part of the Prussian province of Hessen-Nassau, the
same date is true.

Today is the 70^th birthday of the Federal State of Hessen. It was
founded by the Americans on September 19, 1945 by uniting the Prussian
province of Hessen-Nassau (without a smaller part of Nassau east of the
Rhine) and the state of Hessen (capital Darmstadt; without its
territories west of the Rhine).

I know that you may despair, when you read this. But these changes are
the daily bread of regional historians.

Per Gesher Galicia Town Locator and JewishGen Gazetteer, Hruszow in

Drohobycz. Hruszow in Jaworow district and Wielkie Oczy Jewish
district is located at 5005/2319 and is 10.8 miles NNW of Jaworow.
Neither Hruszow had a significant Jewish community.

After an extensive search in Ancestry with no luck tracing any of this
family either, I tried searching JRI-Poland for surnames phonetically
like MILCH and MILEH. < http://jri-poland.org/jriplweb.htm >

BINGO! JRI-Poland has indexed three birth records in Wielkie Oczy PSA
located in Fond 1729 of Przemysl Archive with no link to online images.

- Moses MILCH/ADLER born 1883 (akta 60 sygnatura 2) was born to
Abraham Joel MILCH and Neche ADLER of Hruszow.

- Freide Rechel MILCH/ADLER born 1900 (akta 33 sygnatura 1) was
born to Abraham MILCH and Neche ADLER of Hruszow.

JRI-Poland's index clarifies that the family is >from Hruszow in Jaworow

ADLER in the USA. The double given names in the index provide
additional clues.

Good luck!

Mark London <mrl@...>
 

Thanks to everybody that replied to my email request! As usual, people
were very helpful, and once again I found flaws in my method of
searching. What I've learned is that everybody needs to do the same
search, on both ancestry.com and familysearch.org . For example, I
had tried searching for the town name of Hruszow, and people living in
Massachusetts. That town name was on a WWI draft card for one of the
family members that I was looking for. However, only Familysearch.org
had transcribed the town name and put it in their database.
Ancestry.com did not!

Also, one person did find Abraham Milch listed as a father in Hruszow
birth records, in the JRI database. I could swear that I had searched
that database without finding him. I must have had snow blindness.
More likely, I was getting fatigued at that point.

Very much appreciated to all who responded.

First Mark, you might want to study the manifest itself, as the
indexer did not do a good job. There were more clues on the manifest.

Second, oftentimes "losing" a family occurs because folks chose a more
"American sounding" surname.

So here's what I did...

I looked at the manifest you mentioned and saw they came >from Galicia...
so when I queried the census on Ancestry I asked for a Louis (oftentimes a
dapted >from the Hebrew Leib) born c. 1891, in Austria, living in
Massachusetts.

There were quite a few, but only one census had other given names that
might have been adapted >from the original names...

In the 1910 census I found...

Abram Miller 45 Austria e.1896
Annie Miller 42 Austria 6 children/5 living
Louis Miller 18 Austria (matches Lieb's age on manifest)
Fannie Miller 10, e. 1903 (matches Freide's age on manifest)
on Mayflower Street in Plymouth Mass.

Any chance this might be the family you are searching for?

I can't trace the Milch family that arrived in America from Hruszow #galicia

Mark London <mrl@...>
 

Hi - My wife have relatives that disappeared once they arrived in America.

In 1900, Abraham Milch and his son Chaim arrived, born in 1857 and
1883. The town they list where they came from, is Hruszow.

In 1902, Moris Milch arrived, and specified his contact person as his
father Abraham Milch, living in 16 Minden St, Roxbury Massachusetts.

I cannot find any records for these people in the Boston city directories,
or any censuses.

I know that there were a lot of people with the name Milch that lived in
NYC and elsewhere, that came >from Podhajce. But I can't connect any of
them to the ones that came >from Hruszow.

Vital records >from both cities are sparse and unhelpful.

What I really need is a vital record that shows Abraham's wife's maiden
name. His immigration record shows him to be a brother-in-law of my
wife's great grandfather. But I have no idea if he was married to a sister
of my wife's great grandfather, or to a sister of her great grandmother.

There is a NYC Supreme Court naturalization record for a "Moris or
(Maris) Milch". Even if this is the Moris that I'm looking for, it wouldn't
contain his mother's maiden name. I can't find a marriage record for him
under the name of Milch, or for his brother Chaim.

Any help in finding these people, would be most appreciated! Thanks.
