Unusual will condition #southafrica

Arlene <arlene@...>
 

I am presently making a database of the 1974 Cape Town Archives deceased
estates (available online by courtesy of the Mormons).

I am sure that most of you are aware the (legally unenforceable) condition
whereby the testator disinherits a son and/or daughter if they marry out of
the Jewish faith.

I recently found the following stipulation in a will:

"I bequeath the sum of R1000 to my son xxxx, but should he come on a visit
from Israel during my life time, he will then forfeit this amount."!
I don't know whether he came or not, but there were insufficient funds to
pay the legacy.

This week's Yizkor book excerpt (Mlawa) on JewishGen's Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

The coming of the railroads to the shtetls of Eastern Europe in the late 19th
century brought about big changes, both by connecting communities and changing the
economies and livelihoods in the towns they reached. The impact varied >from large
town to small town. For instance, Kovel in northwest Ukraine had 2,647 Jews in 1847
and that number grew to 8,521 in 1897. With the laying of the railroad line, the
Yizkor book of Kovel says "the city threw off its old form and reinvented itself.
Almost magically, wide, paved roads began appearing in the city . Next to the old
city, whose aging houses were decaying and whose streets were small and narrow,
there arose a fresh new city on the sands full of energy and beauty. Alongside the
new houses and streets there arose a new Jewish settlement in the city, brimming
with life." That was a mixed blessing because the emergence of Kovel as a major
railroad hub for several lines made it a strategic battleground during World War 1
and World War 2, a time of great suffering. Mlawa in north central Poland, a much
smaller community with about 1,500 Jews at the end of the 19th century, also
experienced much change when the Vistula River Railroad (or, Kolej Nadwilaska)
opened in 1877, connecting Mlawa to Kovel through Warsaw. As this excerpt >from the
Yizkor book of Mlawa relates, "All of a sudden the world was within reach. Before
then it took half a week to get to Warsaw by wagon." But it also meant changes for
Jews whose coachmen had been the primary source of transportation to the outside
world before the railroad came.

Taxpayer lists from towns in the Tarnopol region #ukraine

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 appears 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).

Latest uploads to the All Galicia Database #austria-czech

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

Gesher Galicia is pleased to announce the addition of new sets of
Jewish records on the All Galicia Database - a database that is free
and available to all. See: https://search.geshergalicia.org

Bolechow (Bolekhiv)
- Jewish deaths 1811-1846, 1860-1876. Central State Historical
Archives of Ukraine in Lviv (TsDIAL), Fond 701/1/6 and 9. (3,771
records)


Jezierna (Ozerna)
- Jewish births 1886-1893, 1898-1922. Central State Historical
Archives of Ukraine in Lviv (TsDIAL), Fond 701/1/251 and 252. (1,507
records)
This completes all the Jewish vital records for Jezierna held in
Ukrainian state archives.


Tarnopol (Ternopil)
- Jewish community census (index book) 1880. AGAD, Warsaw, Fond 300,
Sygn. 1728. (7,471 records).
Many pages of this book are damaged and the first two or three pages
are missing completely. Possibly around 85% of the records in the
original book are visible and decipherable. This important document
complements the index book of the 1890 Jewish Tarnopol census and the
full 1910 census - both of which have been transcribed by Gesher
Galicia and are searchable on the All Galicia Database.

Gesher Galicia wishes to thank Michal Majewski and Eddy Mitelsbach for
their work on these records.


Zborow (Zboriv)
- Jewish births 1838-1864. Central State Historical Archives of
Ukraine in Lviv (TsDIAL), Fond 701/1/69. (851 records)
This is a significant update to a set of indexes that had been
uploaded earlier to the database and previously announced. Gesher
Galicia wishes to thank Ann Harris for her help on these and other
Zborow records.


Przemyslany (Peremyshliany)
- Jewish tax payers, 1936. State Archive of Ternopil Oblast (DATO).
Fond 231/1/3009. (240 records).
The spreadsheet for this record set, indexed about four years ago, had
gone astray. Gesher Galicia wishes to thank Joan Adler for her work on
it at the time, and for recently sending the spreadsheet again, having
realized that the original spreadsheet had not been uploaded to the
database.


The following transcriptions of index books held in the Przemysl state
archive, Fond 154, which had been earlier uploaded and announced, have
been updated:
- Sanok, Jewish births (index book), 1864-1939 (3,734 records);
- Sanok, Jewish marriages (index book) (grooms only), 1916-1939 (705 records);
- Sanok, Jewish deaths (index book), 1914-1939 (1,814 records).


Vital records coming to the All Galicia Database soon:
- Budzanow (Budaniv) - B, D 1825-1866; D 1825-1866; M 1881-1908, 1910-1939;
- Tarnopol (Ternopil) - M 1859-1876;
- Stanislawow (Ivano-Frankivsk) - M 1932, 1933.

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.
