finding my Viennese father #austria-czech

yjward@...
 

My father, Michael Heinrich FARBER lived at Zieglergasse 9, Vienna. At the
time of the Anschluss he was 17, expelled >from school and arrested whilst
walking the streets. My grandfather, Robert Farber, was tipped off by a
friend, collected him >from the police station and arranged for him to go to
an agricultural school in Vienna. Sometime in late 1938 this school was
raided by the Gestapo and most of the students taken away. He avoided
arrest because he was still ploughing a field and subsequently came to
England.

I am trying to find details of the agricultural school.

Kind regards

Taxpayer lists from the Tarnopol region #galicia

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

Several years ago, Gesher Galicia acquired copies of a large set of
Jewish taxpayer records >from the 1930s, relating to towns in the
Tarnopol region. The original records are held in the State Archive of
Ternopil Oblast (DATO), in Fond 231/1/3008 and 3009. It recently
emerged that in 2013, a number of these town lists were indexed on a
voluntary basis for Gesher Galicia. Only three of the town
spreadsheets though, appear on the All Galicia Database (AGD) - those
for Czortkow, Kamionka Strumilowa, and Zalozce. Other lists >from this
batch were fairly certainly indexed at the time, but for some reason
their spreadsheets of indexes have gone astray.

A few weeks ago, a Gesher Galicia member came across a spreadsheet
that had been indexed in 2013, but which had not been uploaded to the
AGD, and kindly passed it on to us. These indexes, for Przemyslany
Jewish taxpayers >from 1936, have now been added to our online
database, as announced a couple of days ago. Another taxpayer
spreadsheet, for Zborow, has also since materialized and will soon be
added to the database.

If any reader knows of other spreadsheets >from the Tarnopol-region
batch of Jewish taxpayer lists >from the 1930s, beyond the towns
already mentioned, that were completed for Gesher Galicia, we would be
most grateful to learn of them. Other towns in this large batch of
typewritten records (many of them with carbon-copy duplicates)
include: Borszczow, Brzezany, Grzymalow, Mielnica, Podhajce, Skala,
Tluste, Trembowla, Zbaraz, and Zloczow - as well as Tarnopol itself
(for which there are 1,050 people listed).

Please send any information to <info@geshergalicia.org>. Please do NOT

late birth registration #galicia

Eli Brauner
 

The phenomena of late birth registration in Galicia and elsewhere is
well known. The reasons for late registration are various most of them
connected with taxes and military service. Yet I wonder why bother and
register at all the newcomers? Is there an article that deals with this
procedure?

Thanks,

Re: Varva, Ukraine #ukraine

myopy5367@...
 

My great-grandmother's family comes >from Varva which is a small village/town near Priluki. The family name is Janovitzky/Yanowitz. The most distant ancestors I know about are Usher Janovitzky and his wife Bluma, born about the 1840's. The Ukrainian researcher who I hired to search various archives was unable to find any records for the family, so any information I have is family lore. The family claim to fame, however, is Harvard professor Oscar Handlin (son of Ida Yanowitz) who wrote the Pulitzer prize-winning book about Jewish immigration, The Uprooted. After the war, Oscar tried to find out what happened to family members left in Varva, but he was unsuccessful. Varva does exist, but it didn't have many Jewish families.

Good luck in your research,
