Galician Research: JewishGen's newest course begins Nov.2 #ukraine

Phyllis Kramer
 

Did you have ancestors >from Galicia? Would you like to understand the
resources for researching them? This two part course is designed for
those relatively new to Galician research, but know the town of
origin. We begin with online town sources, continue with surname
research, using four major sources: Routes to Roots, JRI-P, Gesher
Galicia and JewishGen; advanced students may continue by researching
directly in the Polish archives websites.

We will focus on developing a methodology for foreign research,
including: (1) the Family Document containing all the necessary
information about your family branch, (2) the Research Table of where
you've searched, (3) Your ToDo list, (4) who is researching your
surname or shtetl, and (5) a descriptive paragraph to connect with
fellow researchers and professionals.

Galicia I (November 2018) will cover researching town information and
vital records on the 4 major websites. Course Material will include an
online, downloadable textbook. Galicia II will cover the historical
background, the Polish Archives, over 50 different source websites
(census, military, directories etc), Holocaust, languages, hiring a
researcher and more!

This is a personal mentoring program (unique to JewishGen education)
which features an online FORUM where you'll be encouraged to post one
ancestral branch (one surname), set goals for your research, and work
one-on-one with the instructor to research your branch and ask your
questions. Our classes have no scheduled times as our students are
international, enabling everyone to read/view/post at leisure.

It is imperative that you read the full description at
https://www.jewishgen.org/education/description.asp?course=40113, then
please ask any question. Registration is open to 15 students.

Re: Jewish soldiers serving in Franz Yosef's army #galicia

Phyllis Kramer
 

Jacob Baal-Schem asked:

<<Are there any documents on Jewish soldiers serving in the Franz Yosef
army at the beginning of the 20th century? I would be very interested
as I know that my father served there.>>

Shalom Jacob... Short answer: Yes there are documents, but they are not
easy to find online.

Military service began in 1789 but not many Jews served until the 20th
century. The source for military records in Austria is the military
department of the Austrian State Archives (Oesterreichisches
Staatsarchiv/Kriegsarchiv) in Vienna -- www.oesta.gv.at -- but there are
very few records pertaining to non-commissioned personnel and the
name alone is usually not sufficient to start the search. Year of birth and
place of origin are important and best is the location (regiment).

Now the good news... There are some records available...
The Austrian State Archive/Military Archive at
www.austria.gv.at/site/6408/default.aspx has lists of those who served
in the Austrian army. A difficult site to navigate but you can try
emailing surname and information to post@bka.gv.at .

LDS film #1186632 can be used to find the Austrian units for your area.

GenTeam is indexing the WWI casualty list (1914-1919); eventually there
will be over 3 million indexes; try
https://www.genteam.eu/index.php?option=com_db54

and the JDC also has Prisoner of War records at www.JDC.org/archives

There's more -- with lots of details -- and I would advise you to read
the June issue of the newsletter >from Gesher Galicia. There is a
wonderful article on WWI military records by Tony Kahane.

Hope this helps.

PS: We will cover military records in more detail in the Galician
Research II class, targeted for early next year. See

In working my family genealogy, I have been able to copies of registers
and records >from archives offices (stadtarchiv) in some German towns &
cities. But it is often hard to find out where the records for
individuals cities are held either by an archive or registry office. I
would interested in getting information on the location of these
offices. Is there a list online anywhere or a website or email address
for finding out where the records for an individual town are kept.
Please answer on my personal email thank you.
