JewishGen's Subcarpathian SIG - Conference Update #ukraine

Lara Diamond
 

It was great meeting so many fellow Subcarpathia researchers last week
in Orlando!

First, some exciting news (which I didn't know about during our SIG
meeting): We won the Stern Grant! That means that the money from
that grant will go straight into paying for more records to be
photographed. (We still need additional donations to be able to get
all of the records that we've identified though--see below how you can
help).

During the SIG meeting, the following stats were shared as far as what
we have so far. This has all been done since last summer's meeting in
Seattle:

280 vital record books
21,426 images >from those books
251 of those books have been fully indexed for Jewish records

23,139 Jewish vital records transcribed
17,580 records searchable on JewishGen

There was also a representative in our SIG meeting >from FamilySearch
who said he may have records already photographed that we could
transcribe. I'm waiting for a complete list of those (the initial
list had many church books which aren't too useful to us), but
hopefully there will be documents of interest there.

If you'd like to contribute to our project to allow us to continue to
acquire records, you can donate to the Sub-Carpathia SIG General Fund
(which is tax-deductible if you're in the US) here:

Re: Wolofsza or Beresker #hungary

HungarianRoots
 

Hi David,

It is most probably a mispelling error of place names and/or a local name
for a town. If the town was in an area where Ruthenians or Slovaks were
present, they towns may have had alternate names in their language, often
also used by Hungarian Jews... And if they misspelled the Slovak name of the
town then it makes it even harder.
If I had to pick a town >from Subcarpathian towns, I would say, Wolovsza is
Voloc (now Volovets, Ukraine).
As for Beresker, I have no idea.

You could try to upload photos of records to ViewMate and then people could
guess.

Thanks,

Podwinetz/Haurowitz from Jung Bunzlau/Mlada Boleslav #austria-czech

pgbakos@...
 

After some years away, I am updating my family history, the descents >from the
Podwinetz family of Jung Bunzlau.
At the urging of Randy Schoenberg, I had posted what I had on GENI which,
through the work of others, has created questions.
My original research was undertaken in Prague and in Mlada Boleslav using
original documents in the State Archives as well as the microfilms in the
National Archives.=A0 As it was my first time dealing with "old German"
paleography I am certain I have errors.
I would appreciate any help with the following dilemma - the case of too many Seligmans.

Selignman/Susskind HAUROWITZ son of Jakob, married Sara PODWINETZ in 1797
(Date?). They had at least three sons: Jacob, David and Litmann.
only have the DOB for Litmann, 28 July, 1807.

Jacob married Rebekah KOHN. They had a son named Seligman, born in Jung
Bunzlau on the 23rd of March 1825. Nothing further known about him or
his parents.
David married Anna STONITZ? Their second son, Seligman (Sigmund?) was
born in Jung Bunzlau on the 16th of May, 1836. My research shows him
marrying Karoline STEIN for whose death I have conflicting information.
GENI does not agree with me.
Litmann Rubin married twice: 1 to Rosalia LEVADI on the 30th of November 1827.
They had one son: Seligmann, born on the 20th of December 1833.
My research shows no further information.
Littman Rubin married secondly, Katharina SCHILLER on 13 December 1838.
They had a son named Sigmund, born on the 24th of July, 1840. My research
shows him marrying someone named Karoline. Is this a confusion with
Seligman the sone of David?

Unfortunately, GENI does not always provide sources.

I would appreciate any help.

New York Jewish Genealogy Course begins August 4 #usa

Phyllis Kramer
 

Did your family live in New York? There are many interesting research
possibilities in the Big Apple! JewishGen's Intermediate Course,
Breaking Brick Walls in the United States, will focus on New York
Resources. This course will be especially useful to those who visit
NY; we'll have suggestions on where to research, where to wander and
how to get there.

If, despite basic online research (census >from familysearch &
ancestry, vital records >from italiangen) you have not yet found the
Hebrew names, birth year or town for your U.S. immigrant ancestors
consider this course as it focuses on the more esoteric documents our
ancestors generated, including naturalization, military and
governmental records, death records (probate, obituaries, cemeteries),
and local archival research.

We are proud to feature a personal mentoring program; students use our
online FORUM, post an ancestral branch, set goals for research, and
work one on one with the instructor. Eight text lessons can be
downloaded to read at your own pace and an optional field trip to a
New York archive will be scheduled. This course is open for
enrollment. PLEASE read the course descriptions and requirements
(8-10 hours per week) on
www.jewishgen.org/education/description.asp?course=40088
and email any questions.

I look forward to interfacing with every student.
