Dear friends.

We have just been asked by AGAD to announce and implement
a different procedure for the ordering of, and payment for,
records >from their archives.

There are a few points that require clarification; in addition, we
will need a little time to amend the ordering instructions for
AGAD records on the JRI-Poland web site.

To repeat: Do not send any more orders for copies of records to
AGAD until further notice. (The Tarnopol option has been temporarily
removed >from the Polish State Archives order form on our web site.)

Please hold **all** questions concerning this matter...whether or not
you have sent an order to AGAD or plan to do so. Your cooperation
will be appreciated.

I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction.
I have my grandfather's, Fred BERGSMAN, US Army discharge papers and
recently received copies of the enlistment papers for both of his hitches
from the National Archives. I'm trying to find out where his units served. I
know that at some point in time he was in the Philippines.
I sent an email to the Archives, but never got a reply.
Is there a military source? Something in the public library? Try the
Archives again?
Perhaps another JewishGenner had a relative in the same units...Any help
would be greatly apprecitated.

Mother's maiden name POKROJSKI HOLLANDERSKY #general

Stanley Winthrop wrote he was "..told that there was a period in Poland
around 1880 when the government did not recognize Jewish marriages...
(C)hildren...who later emigrated were given ..documents with their mothers
maiden name as their family name.".
Stanley asked if this was true. It could explain why my father's
POKROJSKI / POKROISKY uncles adopted the HOLLANDER surname (their mother's
shortened HOLLANDERSKY) arriving in the States after that date >from today's
Poland /Lithuania border area. I thought this was due to easier spelling.
Is there information on the duration of this lack of recognition of Jewish
marriages, if it did exist?

Questions about given names #galicia

Bill & Renee Stevens <brstevens@...>
 

My paternal grandmother was Rachel WOLF bat Dorf WOLF. I believe Rachel was
born in or near Lemberg, then Austro-Hungary, around 1865-1870. I have
never run across the name Dorf before and am wondering whether it may be a
shortened version of some other name. Any thoughts?

My mother's Yiddish name was Liby (Leibe??). My father called her Liby or
Lola. Her papers have her listed as Leona(Leonia). Does anyone know
whether there is a Hebrew equivalent to Liby/Leibe or whether that was a
common Yiddish/Hebrew name at the turn of the century?

Photograph translation #galicia

KilgoreJ@...
 

Hi all. I just found several photographs at my grandfather's house which say
the following onthe back: Fot "Moderne". CH ZANDMAN, w GABINIE.

I think it means Moderne Photographs, with CH ZANDMAN, being the
photographer. I am 98% certain the photos were taken in Poland, however, I
am not sure where. Does anyone out there recognize this studio, or Gabinie
as a town?

Second, I found a postcard with the following on the back "N.MAZELMAN, Warsz.
Nalewki 40. Again, I figure N. MAZELMAN is the photographer, with the studio
being in Warsaw. Would the Nalewki 40 be a street address?

I also can't date these photos, although I know they were taken prior to WWII.

Thanks in advance for your help!

All the best,

Re: Some Hamburg Emigration List Information #galicia

Dear Carole and listers

Thank you for letting everyone know about the up-dated Hamburg lists.

I was delighted to find a GLATT >from Drohobycz, the first possible member of
my grandfather's family, that I've been lucky enough to find, in the whole
of Galicia!

The exact record was:

Abe GLATT, 29, Drohobycz. Departed 22 July 1891. To New York

My grandfather's family came >from a shtetl called Podhorodce, in the Stryj
Valley, between Stryj and Drohobycz. He and his siblings emigrated to the
UK, one by one, around 1900, and I know nothing about his father, Kalman,
other than that he was a draper in Podhorodce.

Thank you for putting me on to the lead.

Best wishes

Re: Canadian 1901 Census #general

Roberta Sheps <roberta_l_sheps@...>
 

Arthur Halpern asked how to find the Canadian Censuses online. You
should be able to find the Canadian censuses as they come on line by
going to the ancestry.com website and scrolling through the lists of
free databases and resources that they're currently making available.

Their website is www.ancestry.com

You'll have to look regularly on a weekly basis for the particular town
that interests you, and be prepared to wade through a list of databases
that are of absolutely no interest to you.

As far as I am aware, the Canadian government itself has not put the
census on line, although I could be wrong.

I have to say that depending on when in 1901 Arthur's family went to
Montreal, they may not appear in the census. In fact, and I could be
wrong here, I believe that the census is taken in the year before it's
published, and therefore this one would have been taken in 1900.

But happy hunting anyway.
