Lwow Address Directory for 1916 now searchable #poland

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

A Lwow address directory for 1916 is now full-text searchable at
http://genealogyindexer.org, "Ksiega adresowa krol. stol. miasta
Lwowa." Searches include this and all other sources by default. You
can restrict a search to just this directory by appending {d917} to
your search term, like this: kalter {d917}.

This directory was very recently digitized by the Library of Congress'
Preservation Reformatting Division, and is now searchable thanks to
their gracious cooperation and the assistance of Regina Frackowiak.
Search results currently link to individual images rather than the
Library's usual "page-turner interface," which will be available in
the future. The entire directory can be downloaded as a PDF from
http://1.usa.gov/1bGaqbG.

As far as I know, this is the first "new" major Lwow-specific
directory to become available online in several years. Because of its
date, it might be especially useful to researchers of families
displaced by WWI, although it is unclear to me when its information
was collected. Some people listed in the 1914/1915 Lwow War Refugees
Address Directory as having fled >from Lwow to Vienna do not appear in
this directory, while others do. I have not compared the two sources
carefully. The War Refugees Address Directory, "Ksiega adresowa
pamiatkowa i adresowa wygnancow wojennych z Galicyi i Bukowiny," is
also searchable at genealogyindexer.org.

For full updates about sources added to genealogyindexer.org,
subscribe to the email list at http://genealogyindexer.org/news. This
is one of 22 directories added in the past week alone.

Viewmate request - Town in Poland 1886 #poland

bernerfolk
 

I'm trying to identify the town on a passenger record >from Hamburg in
1886. It's for Abraham Bass, the next to the last line on the full
page. I've also posted an enlargement of the section for better
legibility.

Abraham was a very precise man, he reported on the 1940 US census that
he was >from "Poland" and his mother was born in "Lithuania" so I
suspect this town is in the northern part of modern Poland.

Full wife? #general

Errol Schneegurt
 

Working on the Lemberg project there are terms that stand out as not common.
The word Gattin referring to a wife, spouse or partner is used to show the
connection between the person who died and the survivor.

I came across one that was written as voll gattin meaning, in this case, a
fully or full wife.

Would anyone know why and what it means when the word full or fully is
used along with wife, survivor or partner.

BINDER from Odessa Area #general

David Goldman
 

I have posted the family name in years gone by without any success of
finding connections, but I'll give it a try again.

My great-great-grandfather was Naftali BINDER, the town rabbi in Mayaki,
about 20 miles west of Odessa, who died around 1918 at about 70 years old.
He apparently originated >from Zhitomir, and had a large family (his wife,
whose first name I am not sure of, may have in fact been his cousin too).
Several of the sons were killed during the Revolution when violating a
curfew while attending medical school in Odessa, and if any of the children
who remained in Russia had families, no one knows about it.

Re: Observations about Odessa Jewish Life 100 Years Ago #general

David Goldman
 

First let me express my appreciation to other participants for their input
on the questions I have raised.
So here are three new issues:

1) What was the relative value of the Russian ruble around the start of
World War One to the dollar and in today's terms? My great-great-grandfather
refers to having to give one of his sons a monthly amount of 15 rubles and
some other expenses.

2) A letter >from my great-great-grandfather says that his wife is feeling
well, and that she has "moved to the fligel" which in Russian refers to some
kind of extension or exterior building. He also referred to "my room" in
another letter, but the move of his wife does not carry any negative
connotations. Is it possible that among middle class Jews in that period
leading up to World War One husbands and wives (especially in middle age)
had separate rooms?

3) Although he was a town rabbi in Mayaki (near Odessa), he seemed to have
been able to make his living as some kind of private tutor or teacher or
young people and/or adults, keeping busy for 8 or 9 hours a day teaching
several different "lessons" ("uroki") for individuals. I wonder if this was
a common way of making a living. He doesn't specify ages or subjects, so
it's hard to know what it actually means. Maybe other letters will shed some
light on it.
