I posted something on ViewMate recently thinking the document was written in
Polish. I was advised that the document is in Russian Cyrillic and not Polish.
I have posted it again on ViewMate at the following address:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM66948

It is the Birth Record of my maternal grandfather - Sruls Iser KIELNER/KELNER -
born 1886 in Wojslawice and I would like it translated please.

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.
Thank you very much.

My father Baruch Brody passed away this past week. He was a graduate of Yeshiva
Chaim Berlin in New York in 1959. I am very much looking for other graduates of
the Yeshiva in the late 1950s early 1960s who might have known my father and can
shed some light on this part of his life.

More about Eastern Galician Jewish vital records on FamilySearch #galicia

Mark Jacobson
 

Thanks to Renee Stern Steinig for her message about Galician record
images on FamilySearch. Gesher Galicia would like to add some
additional information about using these records.

While it is exciting to have these record images available online for use,
we have to report that these records >from the Lviv Archive cannot be
directly downloaded to your computer. Individual images can only be
viewed, not saved. This means you can see the records, zoom the image
and save capture images of what you see on your screen using the
snipping tool or print screen, but you cannot save image files of entire
page images. Snipping is useful for saving individual records on any
particular page of records, but there can be problems if you want to
save an entire page or if you are working with post 1877 records that
cover two pages.

In addition to the JRI-Poland list of microfilm numbers Renee mentioned,
Gesher Galicia has an updated online inventory, sorted by town, of all
the Jewish Galician vital records in Ukrainian archives (including some
that were not microfilmed by the LDS). This inventory includes LDS
microfilm numbers and item numbers on the microfilm rolls. Knowing the
item number can make it easier to search for the record book you need.
Our inventory is free for everyone to use:
https://www.geshergalicia.org/lviv-archives-jewish-records/ukrainian-state-archives-by-town/ .
We think our inventory will be useful for searching the FamilySearch
website for the Galician records:
https://www.familysearch.org/catalog/search .

Gesher Galicia can report that we have reviewed all of these films of
Galician vital records and have indexed many of the records on these
films. The results of our indexing by our many teams of volunteers can
be searched on our All Galicia Database:

Jezierzany & Surroundings Yizkor Book - Please Help! #galicia

Judy Brodkey
 

Dear Gesher Galicia SIG members -

It can leave a hole in your heart when you don't know where you came
from. For most of her life, my mother never knew where her ancestors
lived in Eastern Europe. At age 95, she finally learned the answer:
Jezierzany, Poland, a little shtetl in Galicia with a rich history and a
vibrant Jewish community. The residents of Jezierzany and surrounding
areas were determined, creative, hard-working and generous. They
cared about each other, their community and the well-being of others
around them. Eventually, Jewish Jezierzany was destroyed. However,
some of its residents and many of its descendants survived and have
continued to live inspiring lives.

Please help their spirit and stories live on through the Jezierzany &
Surroundings Yizkor Book.

We are launching a fundraising project to translate the Yizkor book for
Jezierzany & Surroundings into English. It was originally published in
Hebrew (and a little Yiddish) and includes writings by survivors. Once
translated, it will be available free of charge at JewishGen.org. You can
visit https://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Ozeryany/Ozeryany.html to view
the book's Table of Contents and a few sections that have already been
translated.

We need to raise approximately $18,000 to translate the remaining 450
pages of the book. Translation can begin after we receive $500 in
contributions; additional pages will be translated as JewishGen receives
more funds.

Dr. Avraham Bedor, one of the book's authors, wrote that the Jezierzany
& Surroundings Memorial Book "contains chapters about the vibrant life
and dramatic struggles of a small Jewish community that aspired to live,
open a window to the world and open the gates for human and national
redemption. It contains a rich gallery of interesting characters. It
includes a description of the fateful and tragic changes that occurred
during and between the two Worlds Wars. It tells the story of the lives of
generations of dreamers, fighters, pioneers and fence-breakers who
paved new roads -- for them and for us."

** Please donate today so their stories will be heard.**

Your tax deductible contribution can be made online at
https://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
Scroll down to Jezierzany and enter your donation amount there.
JewishGen has numerous Yizkor Book funds so make sure you fill in the
amount for Jezierzany.

If you prefer, you can send a check to JewishGen, Edmond J. Safra Plaza,
36 Battery Place, New York, NY 10280. Be sure to indicate that this is a
donation for the Jezierzany Memorial book. In order to ensure that your
donation is correctly credited to the Jezierzany fund, please also let me
know the amount of your contribution. The minimum allowable
contribution is $10.

Your donation will make a difference. Every single dollar you contribute
corresponds to the number of words and pages we will be able to
translate and bring to life.

** In every generation, we tell the story. **

Each year on Passover, we are instructed to tell the story of our
ancestors' journey out of Egypt, lest we forget where we came >from and
the lessons learned along the way. Our ancestors >from Jezierzany and
surrounding areas have another precious story that deserves to be fully
shared. Your generosity can make this happen.

Please share this message with friends and family members interested
in Jezierzany and nearby towns. The success of this project depends on
those of us with ancestors and relatives >from Jezierzany and other
surrounding towns and villages in Galicia. Help spread the word!

If you have any questions or ideas, please contact me at

Thank you very much.

Tabula registers in Lviv archives #galicia

Miriam Bulwar David-Hay
 

For years I have been up against a complete brick wall in finding
information about my grandmother's family in the town of Belz, which,
as far as I know, has no surviving Jewish BMD records. However,
recently I read an article in the Gesher Galicia website, written by
Alexander Dunai in 2006, discussing the tabula registers held in the
Lviv archives. Belz appears in the list of towns with such registers,
and in fact there is a notation that there are 15 volumes for Belz
(which seems a lot for a small town!).

I am hoping someone knowledgeable will be able to advise me how to
go about searching for information in those registers. What years are
covered in those 15 volumes for Belz? Are they indexed (in the Lviv
archives if not online)? Would the archivists in Lviv respond to a
search request (for a fee of course), or would I need to hire a private
researcher? To whom should I write with any request? I'd be very
grateful for any advice on what to do >from here.

Thanking you in advance,

Miriam Bulwar David-Hay
Raanana, Israel

P.S. In Belz I am researching the names FRENKIEL, VERLIEBTER and
MEIZELES, or any variations on those names.
