Hello, I am searching for relatives of Sarah Rilen >from someplace in
Lithuania to where she migrated--St.Albans,VT. She had a sister Rachel
(Ruchel) who married a Zuckerman and a brother Abraham Rilen who lived in
Mattapan,Mass and had two daughters,Lillian who married a "Greece" and Mary
who married a Casselman. I believe that Sarah had a sister who married and
settled in South Africa. I also don't believe that Rilen was the correct
spelling of ther name. Phyllis C.

Tobias of London #general

KarenShafron@...
 

Dear Genners

I have received further information regarding the Tobias family. Tobias who
died 16 Nov 1921 and who is buried in Edmonton Federation Cemetery in London
was as I said before married to Sarah. They had a son Abram, daughters
Betsy, Ada & Leah and 2 other daughters whose names we are not certain of
(one possibly Becky?). None besides Ada & Leah left England.

Betsy we think had a stall in Piccadilly.

Is this ringing any bells?

In anticipation

Karen Shafron

1910 Census - Enumeration District Finding Aid #general

Ernest Fine <efine@...>
 

I have decided to continue the Finding Aid (
http://www.cygnetserv.com/public/1910CensusED.html ). The method of
manipulating the Ancestry.com census images, described by Alex Calzareth at
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~alcalz/1910.html , is extremely
useful. It has occured to me that the combination of Alex's method, plus
keeping an index on-line, is even more powerful. It's still faster to look
up an ED in the index - at least with my slow, dial-up internet connection
-than to manipulate the Ancestry.com images.

So keep those contributions coming, please, to
mailto:1910CensusED@... .

There's another interesting situation with the stamped page numbers - the
ones we thought ran >from 1 to 300. In roll 1082, Suffolk county, page
numbers continue beyond 300. So far I've seen up to 311 (the end page for
ED 1402), which is the end of Part 2. Also, on roll 1082, I've seen at
least two "B" sheets with page numbers stamped on them.

Since at least some of Suffolk county is on the HQ disc, I'm adding an
"Other" tab to the spreadsheet, and an HTML table for other counties.

FURST, KUNSTLER, ROSTHAL #galicia

Peter Jassem <jassep@...>
 

Dear Galitzianers,

I have learned married names of two of my relatives for the first time.
These are FURST and KUNSTLER (in both names two dots over U).

If you have any information of Emil FURST b. 1903 in Jaroslaw, a lawyer in
Krakow, and his wife Laura (Lola) nee ROSTHAL b. 1906 in Krakow, graduate
in philosophy >from Jagiellonian University, who (both) had reportedly
survived and emigrated to Israel please let me know. I heard that Lola was
later widowed and remarried. Possible location in Israel was Tel Mond. I
am in search of descendants.

Also, let me know if you have information about Hirsch Dawid KUNSTLER b.
1911 in Krakow, a private clerk in Krakow, and his wife Marya Bianka
(Maryla) nee ROSTHAL b. 1911 in Krakow and their children. Apparently the
whole family was killed by Nazis.

Laura ROSTHAL and Marya Bianka ROSTHAL were sisterd and daughters of Kalman
(Karol) ROSTHAL and Gittel (Eugenia) nee STATTER, my great aunt.

I am also looking for information about their brother Edward ROSTHAL b. 1907
in Krakow married to Ella (Ilse) of unknown maiden name, who survived and
emigrated to Israel, likely lived in Tel-Aviv and was an editor of a Polish
language newspaper, Kurier-Nowiny, I think. I am looking for his
descendants. Information received >from the Bureau for Search for Missing
Relatives in Jerusalem led to descendants of other Edward Rosthal, not mine.

Any help or tips will be appreciated. The obvious like writing again to
the Bureau or Yad Vashem need not to be mentioned.

Thanks a lot,

Peter Jassem

Krakow Banns and Marriages #galicia

Krakow Marriage and Banns Indices

The Krakow Marriage and Banns indexing project has turned out
to be an OVERWHELMING success.

Besides the sheer volume of the indices (23,000 entries), the records
themselves give researchers of Krakow and nearby towns far more
information than is usually available in a web search. Many
researchers have sent for copies of the register pages and their
generous donations have enabled the Jewish Historical Institute
to microfilm the registers and thus preserve the original volumes.

During the microfilming process, orders for copies of records
were put on hold and on behalf of the Ronald S. Lauder Foundation
Genealogy project at the Jewish Historical Institute (which handles
the servicing of orders), I would like to thank researchers for their
patience. I am informed that they are now catching up with the
backlog.

The Krakow Marriage and Banns initative is just one of the
collections of genealogical interest being indexed under the
auspices of the Jewish Records Indexing - Poland / Jewish
Genealogical Society, Inc. (New York) joint project at the
Jewish Historical Institute, Warsaw. For more information
about this and other projects at the Jewish Historical Institute,

Krakow records from Jewish Historical Institute [subject provided by moderator] #galicia

Peter Jassem <jassep@...>
 

Those of you who have ordered but not received your copies of Krakow
marriage or bann records >from Jewish Historical Institute yet will be soon
nicely surprised. The amount of information is vast indeed. I have already
received my records, which I ordered early, and I am now overwhelmed with
the amount of information they contain.

Marriage records include the marriage date and place, given and last names
of bride and groom, place of birth, occupation/profession (or subject of
university studies in progress), street address, given and last name and
occupation/profession of father (indication if deceased), given and maiden
name of mother, age of bride and groom in years and months (with accuracy to
1/2 month) on the day of marriage, status (bachelor, widower, divorced
etc.), signature of rabbi or other entitled religious person, signatures of
witnesses and their occupations, list of presented documents such as birth
certificates, banns certificates with dates and location and often such
documents as certificate of groom's military status (certificate of
completion of service), court's permission, father's permission with
signature etc.

Banns records have just a bit less information but still include names of
parents and street address and some other information however they exclude
the age of the bride & groom.

I used to be frustrated by the brief format of most of Galitzian records
when compared to extensive Polish-Russian records written in narrative
format. Now, thanks to volunteers of JGS-NY and JRI-PL and personnel of ZIH
in Warsaw we can enjoy the same (if not greater) wealth of information in
relation to Krakow Marriage and Banns Registers, 1877 - 1939. Thanks to=
all!
