Tarnow Archive - New JRI-Poland project! #poland

Howard Fink <know_how@...>
 

I am pleased to announce the availability of vital records for towns in
the Tarnow Archives beyond those years that were filmed by the Mormons.
These new records generally cover the years 1870 - 1900, with some more
recent records. The towns included in the Tarnow Polish State Archives
Project are:

Czchow Dabrowa Szczucin Tarnow Wosnicz Zabno

Most of the Tarnow indices (about twenty-three thousand) have already
been typed in by volunteers working >from lists that we acquired >from the
Polish State Archives. This is information that is not available through
the LDS films. A list of the surnames appearing in this data can now be
viewed at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/psa/tarnow_surn.htm

Information for the other towns must be entered by workers that we pay
at the Polish State Archives. Work there has begun on Dabrowa, and the
other towns will follow. The index for each town will be made available
in the Jewish Records Indexing - Poland web database only after its
target amount has been raised, but qualifying donors will receive their
own copy via email once they sign a database sharing agreement; they
will not have to wait until the index becomes available on-line. Once
these are on the web site you will be able to order photocopies, sent
directly >from the Polish State Archives (for a fee).

By town, this is what is needed:

Czchow - $150 for 729 Birth records ($50 to qualify)

Dabrowa - $800 for 3869 Birth records ($100 to qualify)

Szczucin - $450 for 2158 records ($100 to qualify)

Tarnow - $1700 for about 24,000 records ($100 to qualify)

Wosnicz - $140 for 641 records ($65 to qualify)

Zabno - $250 for 1104 records ($50 to qualify)

More details on the records available for these towns are at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/psa/psatarnow.htm

Remember, even before funding is complete it is possible to order
records >from the Polish State Archives for any record that appears in an
index. This capability, and the entire index file in a spreadsheet file,
are available to qualifying contributors.

Donations to JRI-Poland are tax-deductible for US taxpayers as
JRI-Poland has received 501(c)(3) status >from the IRS. Donations may be
made by check, VISA or MasterCard. Please indicate the Tarnow PSA
project, and your town(s) of interest. All of the information on how to
make a donation can be found at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/visa.htm

Thank you for making any contribution that you can to help us provide
this family information to you and others,

* Swiss banks Holocaust accounts litigation article #hungary

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Folks,

The article previously mentioned does exists. However the Financial Times site protects its back issues by demanding a 15 days free of charge registration which clearly is a nuisance. I wasn't aware of this when I first visited the site, as it was on the day when the article was published and no registration was required. I'm sorry for the trouble. All those interested in the article please write me in private.

Once again my excuses
Regards
Tom

photographing gravestones #hungary

Sheldon Pivnik <sipivnik@...>
 

You could color in the words on the gravestone of your family member with

Regular or Permanent Magic Marker. ( If you do not think this a travesty)

In Kezmarok, Slovakia, someone has paid for their family stone letters to

be painted in Black, and it turned out very well for me to Photo for them

when I was there 2 years ago. I have read that wetting the Gravestone with
water will also work, but carrying enough water in a container can be
difficult. Best Wishes.

Carole Pivnik, Florida

Moderator: I would not suggest using a permanent marker or any other medium that might permanently mark or damage the stone.


Re: Viewmate 4056 -German translation #hungary

Gábor Hirsch <hirsch@...>
 

The last 3 words is to my opinion "in Baksa gestorben" translates, died
in Baksa

Somebody has already identified the language as
German. But apparently the letters are difficult to
make out, so I thought I would add here what I think
the letter are. Maybe I will get close enough that
somebody who knows German can figure it out.

When I try to make out the letters this is what I
think I see:

Hafumend de fausimans in Baksa gesterbaum.

The H might be an N,
f might be s,
de fausiman might be dr. Kaufman
Baksa is a place near by Zalalovo. I see it quite
commonly in these records.
I have had somebody recognize the last word as
gestorben.

So it might also be:

Nasumend dr Kaufman in Baksa gestorben.

Is any of this close enough for someone to make out
what this says?
